Okay, I’m a terrible blogger. It’s been almost a month since I’ve had a real post and even now, I’m sitting in the laundromat while typing it 1 because that’s just the way my life goes now. I have a good
excuse reason though… my roomate broke her arm. Really badly.
[And if you're reading this, cause you saw it and said last night that you're a curious person... Go to sleep. You need a nap.]
So I’ve been taking care of her, checking on her at lunch and making food/cleaning and all that. Which takes up quite a bit of my time, because by the time it’s done I just want to sit and watch Grey’s Anatomy with her. Plus there’s work, which is super busy but still super awesome- I’m really loving the project I’m doing right now. So much that I actually thought about working on it right now while waiting for the washer to finish, but I decided to blog instead. It’s the first really big FULL DESIGN project so far- I mean, I’ve done full page ads and newspaper ads and plenty of other smaller things, but this is an entire brochure. A huge, folding brochure from start to finish. I basically got final say on the size, I get to do the entire design from scratch and make it however I want. I’m really loving it so far.
Since it’s Easter weekend, I feel like we’ve been constantly doing SOMETHING all weekend. I had friday and today off work, so our friend Zach came over to watch movies on Friday. He’s someone we met in Owen Sound, because his mom works for the Art Gallery that works with my office quite a bit. So he came and we watched movies, then Danielle’s friend came down until Sunday so we all kept watching movies and hanging out. We had an easter dinner Saturday with Danielle’s family + Zach & Allie, which Danielle’s mom made which was SUPER amazing and delicious.
Sunday, my parents came down for a few hours & we went to the flea market, Danielle’s mom & Allie went home, and that afternoon Danielle and I went to Zach’s for his easter dinner which was ALSO delicious. After dinner, we hung out and just watched movies. It’s weird how NORMAL living here is. It doesn’t feel like I’m just kinda staying there while I’m working, it feels like HOME. And I love it. I’m actually scared of what’s going to happen when the term is over and I have to move back for school… I don’t want to. Depending on Danielle, and my school schedule.. I really want to just stay there. Maybe not forever, but definitely for awhile.

Two of my favourite things are country music, and sugar. And while I did not grow up on a farm (like many assume everyone who likes country music does), I have nothing but respect for farmers. So sugar farmers? AWESOME. Pepe Fanjul is Vice Chairman, Chief Operating Officer, and President of Fanjul Corp. and Florida Crystals Corporation, two Fanjul-owned companies principally engaged in the production of sugar. Essentially, he’s responsible for a LOT of sugar. Sugar, and the largest biomass power plant in the North America, which produces renewable energy that powers the sugar operations and tens of thousands of homes.
Pepe Fanjul and family has been farming for over 100 years, and show no signs of stopping. In my books, that’s pretty awesome.

I’ve always though about the possibility of opening my own graphic design and/or photography business- I’m sure it’s every designers dream. I’m not too sure if I’d be cut out for the business part of it, but I would of course learn as much as I could about it before ever thinking about it. I would definitely look into a place like Five Point Capital for help.
Five Point Capitol’s small business financing features include merchant cash advance setups, electronic payment and processing, and other alternative loan products. If you or anyone you know is opening, or thinking about opening, a small business- be sure to check out Five Point Capitol.
