So I want to make my etsy store work, but things just constantly keep interupting my ability to design things. I get harassed for spending time on my computer, by friends, not parents, but I don't think they understand that i'm trying to make a business work and in order to design graphics on the computer, i need to be in use of... the computer.

also, i've been cleaning the house, and that takes ALOT of work because of the condition that some people were comfortable living in. Well it wasn't comfortable to me, and it made me want to burn the house down. That takes ALOT of time, and its going to take me the ENTIRE summer to make this house the way I want it.

so, I'm in need of a little time management skills. I can time manage... I just need people I live with to RESPECT that.

Been busy

Been a little busy. Its finals time.

I had a huge demand for LOST buttons. I've never seen the show but i hear its big. I made different designs, finally got the imaged ones printed.  Theres a few more left to do but its not that many, only a few inside jokes from the show, that I don't quite get.
While i was at it, i made some NCIS buttons. I have the prototypes for all the lost and NCIS buttons printed. in about 15 min i'm going upstairs to do some assembly. I like to see what they all look like made before I know which ones to market.

Things just don't look the same on a computer screen. I have to look at them finished to see what i like and don't. I think that's something  we are losing in this computer generation. I am only 26, so don't get me wrong, I have been using computers my whole life, but I can't sit at a screen and read. I have to have the paper in my hand. I think the ipad is a little frivolous but I could never own one. I can't even read the txts on my phone. If its longer than a few sentences... I don't read it.

so hint to friends: don't send me long txts.

Also, I had a thought. People used to be measured on their ability to recall phone numbers. When was the last time you actually dialed a phone? I mean punched the numbers in, one button at a time. How many numbers can you recall? I used to learn phone numbers really well. I would know phone numbers, birthdays, all kinds of number things. Now i don't even know my best friends phone number. Not due to lack of memory, although i'm sure my memory is degrading from not being used... but because i've never dialed her phone number. I didn't even type it into my phone. She called and I programed her name into the phone attached to the number. In a few years i've never dialed her number. Are we afraid to do things for ourselves? Or just too lazy to do something as simple as push a few buttons.

somehow i dont thing the creators of WALL-E were too off...

So tired...

As the end of this spring semester here at Towson University is comming to a close, I can't help but make plans for summer.

No, not the traditional what beach are we going to, wheres our road trip gona take us this year... no. The where-will-hire-me, how-can-i-make-some-money and lets bust our asses to expand the hell out of our etsy store...

I have no interest in studying for my finals. I can feel my grades slipping daily and I have reached the point where I honestly do not care, because I have no interest in doing any type of school work what so ever.

I'm open to suggestions on how to fix this. Its not that i want to fail. Its that my brain is tired, stressed, and school went from being my number one priority to below number 10 on my list in the last month.

Last week, i made a facebook status update, asking if I made NCIS buttons, if people would buy them. I got an overwhelming response to have LOST Buttons. Having never seen the show, i can't name any characters, which i know there are alot of. Today (since tuesday seems to be my productive day) I spent 3 hours collecting pics of LOST, NCIS, and a few Big Bang Theory. Its amazing how even professional photographers can't get the right picture.

But the good news is, LOST buttons will be available next week.
hopefully after next week, i'll really have time to put into button production, and I really need to start selling more. I need to advertise and put links on everything.

ready to go into overdrive mode.... just have a week of finals standing in my way!!!
