My little sister turns 18 this weekend. We’re going to Miami on a trip funded by yours truly, out of my security deposit from prior digs that I just got back. My lease is up at the end of the month, so I need to pack & pay people to move that sh*t for me, cuz doing that ish with my bones and asthma is a recipe for an ER visit.
In the mean time, I’m still trying to add more gear (that will actually add production value) to my arsenal to try to get 3-4 polished pieces finished in a 10 week period, since I have a portfolio review coming up then.
And I gotta eat.
I’m about to be stressed out after next week, but it’ll be worth it. My sister hates being stuck here (being younger and not having traveled as much), and she’s still adjusting to being a teen mom. In light of the fact that family trips (funded entirely by my mom’s one-income budget) stopped once my parents broke up (my sister was between 4-6 when it was all happening), I can’t not do this for her. So I may end up hungry in the last days of the month, but it’s worth it.
Still tho, can I fuc*kin build a sterling portfolio of work I’ve directed/DP’d instead of 1stAD’d or whatever in 10 weeks?! We’ll see.
