So I wasn’t able to get to any updates this week for the creation of the website. Normally I take my 2 days off and go through a few things on the pages and get a couple of new things in the gallery section as I prep that for launch. I have seen a few good Graphic Jobs come up in the last few weeks, a couple that are pretty close to where I live now.
Sometimes though you need a little you time. It is always important to remember that while it is important to have a good work ethic and get jobs done, its always good to have that down time to relax and take a moment for yourself. You can very easily burn yourself out working on things or doing too much all at once. When that happens it can have devastating effects on your health. I used to work for a vehicle wrap company where I was working 60+ hours a week. I was doing design, sales and the office managing. Needless to say that I was spread pretty thin. I ended up with a severe allergic reaction all over my body in the form of hives. I had to go on a steroid treatment to help get my immune system under control.
Needless to say I no longer work for that company, and my health did indeed start to come back slowly, but surely. So having said that I took a little time out in Riverside where I grew up to visit my brother, and hang out with my girlfriend who was at a work conference. It was nice to relax and just take it easy. So this week I am back to work without any major updates to the back end of the site. I may poke at it here and there when I get off through the rest of my work work here, but for now, this blog post is a decent update.
