I helped with a photo shoot last month, with one of my old professors and one of my fellow alumni. It was fun to help photograph a beautiful woman holding flowers :) I FINALLY got around to editing one of the photos, this one, and I plan on editing a few more of them. My first series! :heart:

Ariana was one of the coolest people I've met in a while. I need to invite her to get some sushi with me soon :heart:

Still needs some work though, so this is going into scraps!
Eyes by DarkSolona
Photoshop CS6

I was sick today, so I decided to work on something interesting. I was inspired by the picture on a cool puzzle I bought recently. She doesn't look much like the girl on the puzzle though, besides the huge-ness and sort-of shape of the eyes. I hope I have the will to finish this piece, I can't wait to see how it will turn out!

Tomorrow's a Big Day

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 8, 2014, 4:35 AM
Tomorrow, I have to start being a grown-up forever! I start my first real, "big girl" job bright and early.

It's the next of the many steps I've taken to create the career of my dreams. My title is "Software Engineer," which, in basic terms, means that I'm a programmer. I'm a little nervous, but I always am before I start something new. I keep telling myself, "This time next week, I will have survived a whole week of working there!" which somehow makes me feel better!

They're serving us breakfast and lunch tomorrow, which I think is pretty awesome. I've never worked for a place that bought me food before. It's one of the many perks of landing this position :) Some of the other perks being: my own desk (after training, of course), a substantial salary, full benefits, and I'm fairly certain I'll make some new friends there. That's one great thing about working in IT for me, I usually meet people with similar, nerdy interests :)

It's going to be very tough to juggle my full time job with my startup business though. The business accelerator is still going on right now, so I've got to keep up with that as well. Just in this first week of work, I have three nights that are full of startup business stuff. It's going to be exhausting, yet exhilarating. And my bestie :iconflicke3: is so supportive, I know she'll help me survive it all!

We're meeting all kinds of influential people, not only in Cincinnati (where we're from) but in a couple other cities as well. It's only been four weeks since the start of the accelerator, and we've already learned so much! It's been difficult and very fun at the same time.

One off-topic thing, but I entered my first dA contest! I'm excited to see all the other great entries; I keep going back to the contest page to see if anyone else has submitted anything. Here's what my entry looks like:

One last thing, :iconflicke3:, her boyfriend, and :iconsenseialicia: and I are getting sushi tonight! I can't wait.... why is sushi so addictive?! :)

Thanks for reading! And I love you! :heart:

If I had points, I'd give them to other people. And buy cake badges for people on their birthdays.

And maybe buy one of those dA hoodies I've had my eye on for a long ass time now. But that's selfish, forget I said that :)

(I just typed in a random number for the points goal, which was 80000000000000000000000000000, and I guess that was too high for them, the limit is what you see xD)
