Hello! So it turns out that after 2+ months of this project, skipping even one day of lettering feels like a really long time. Sorry for not posting yesterday, I probably should've known I was not going to be up for doing one and should've posted one in advance. In addition to yesterday being my 26th birthday (SUCH a momentous age, right?), it was also my last day at my ad agency job! So lots of celebrating happened basically all day. I think I cryptically hinted to exciting/crazy news in a few recent posts but wanted to wait until it was for real before writing anything about it. So now it's here: funemployment & more importantly, the pursuit of some dreams!

I have to say today (first day of non-corporate-world life) was a bit rocky -- I got back in bed more times than I'd like to admit. A little of that may be tequila-fueled (many margaritas were consumed in the past three days) but I think my brain is mostly just freaked out by this new phase of life and thus is telling my body to hide under the covers (AKA self-sabotage). Let's hope my brain pulls it together soon, otherwise get ready for a lot of angsty, depressing lyrics this month!
