Unintential MIA

Wow, I haven't mean to be missing from LJ. I keep starting posts but then don't post them. Been busy, things have been good. I still need to write-up stuff about Tahoe and all the revelations I've had the last few weeks. Also possibly something(one) new to write about. But that's still really new.
Hark, who goes there

Awesome quote

Don't usually share quotes from the day, but this one was awesome and really defines something I've had a hard time defining.

Skiers are Ivy League, where as snowboarders are Liberal Arts

3 more text logos

Ok, here are three more. For the site I'm getting rid of the .com a the end, that will only go on my business cards. I think I've also decided that I'm not fond of the two different colors plus grey, but like the two in the same family plus grey. Thoughts?

Odd Dream

I so rarely remember my dreams, but last night's was strange. Well, a part of it anyway. In my dream, I was talking to someone while we were watching TV, and all of a sudden a makeup commercial comes on. And who's staring in it, zwetschke.

Just thought I would share.

Blog Update

Well, I finally launched my blog last week. It's still in its junior stage as I work on the look and feel, and figure out the widgets but I've been posting articles. Right now is just a basic template that's up but that will all be changing over the next few weeks as the kinks begin to be worked out and everything starts to settle in.

I'm waiting on a logo idea from a friend, but in the meantime I've been working on a name logo to also use. Does name logo actually make sense? Anyway, I'm sure you all get the idea. So, here is what I've come up with so far, simple, but hopefully effectual. I'm hoping to implement this either tomorrow or the next day and make some temporary business cards. I keep ending up in situations where I could be passing along my card for people that could be interested in the site, so I sort of don't want to wait on that.

Anyway, so here are 4 logos, similar, yet different. Thoughts appreciated as always.





Oh, and for those who might want to check it out, in case you couldn't tell from the images above, the site is womansportsblog.com. Feel free to check it out now, and give some initial feedback. Don't worry, I'll be pimping the blog out and asking you all to the same once it's all designed and pretty :D

Send me your blogs!

Or more specifically, blogs that you like the look/organization of.

I've finally done it, I got a name, found a place to host it and so it begins. I've even written some entries, although I haven't posted them! Soon soon, first I want to make it look pretty!

End of week review

Well, the end of my first week being unemployed is coming to an end. I find that for the first time all week I'm having a hard time being motivated. I never realized how draining being unemployed can be! I've spent a lot of time sending out resumes to recruiters and industry contacts and then filling in said people as to what happened and what's going on. In addition, I finally started work on my blog. I'm not as far a long with it as I had hoped, but it's ok and for good reasons. Hopefully next week it will actually go live and we will happily accepting volunteers as Beta Testers for the soft launch. I've never had an actual blog before, so I need to play around with it for a bit and get some feedback.

Next week is already shaping up to be fairly busy. Helps that I'm also planing on being upstate snowboarding Monday and Tuesday :D I'm meeting with more recruiters, catching up with some acquaintances in the industry and hopefully going on an interview or two! Waiting to hear back on that. Glad she forewarned me to be patient otherwise I would be going crazy and calling her that I haven't heard back. Will probably call Monday anyway if I haven't heard anything :D

Tonight I'm going to the Kara Walker exhibit at the Whitney, which closes Sunday for those interested, then catching up with friends throughout the weekend and hosting a Superbowl party Sunday. If the weather is nice enough I might even go for a bike ride. I really want to start doing that regularly if it's warm enough.

Ok, time to leave my dry apt to go pick up some stuff at the drugstore. Doesn't help that the weather is just crap today. Why couldn't it be snowing! That would make me a very happy person.

To-Do List

Wow, I can't believe it's Thursday already! Where is all my time being sucked away to?! It's absolutely amazing. I made a to-do list at the beginning of the week of things I wanted to get done each day. It's amazing how I haven't been able to accomplish everything. I don't even think I've accomplished half! And the crazy thing, I've been really busy!

Finally started some serious work on my blog yesterday which included writing my first entry. I think I need to make an excel spreadsheet of articles I want to write. Oooh, that's a good idea for keeping track! Me likey!

It's looking like I'm not heading upstate this weekend due to crappy weather. A bit bummed, but whatever. There are some exhibits I might try to make it to instead, and some friends I would like to catch-up with. Not to mention I'm planning on riding Tuesday :D Hmm, maybe I'll even ride mon-tues? Oh the possibilities!

Had some potentially promising things happen on the job front too yesterday. I'll hold-off commenting until there's actual news.
