Round Noon

Well, we’re only one month in, but 2017 has been a bit hard to swallow thus far. I’m gonna come right out and admit it.

I’m tryin’ – I really am. But I’ve been feeling like I’ve been going down the rabbit hole of negativity these past few days.

I’ve been sicker than a dog for two weeks now. I spent my long-anticipated 2.5-week winter shutdown SICK. Sick sick sick (for the second year in a row, actually – sure hope this isn’t some kind of omen about 2017!). I worked my ass off all fall, right up until the last minute, setting a new record for submissions to the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, running the student experience at Adobe MAX, holding the first-ever Adobe Career Bootcamp, and then I finally got my break – only to be SICK.  Continue reading
