Last month my mom and I went up to DC for a childhood friend of mines wedding. It was a well needed mini vacay I needed and I was just so ready to get away. Not to mention it was also Mother's Day and it gave us great bonding time. It was 3rd time visiting DC and I never get around to everything but that's what will keep me going back for me. This post is so over due but I hope you enjoy some of the pictorial goodness I was able to capture. I hate I couldn't get any photo's of the wedding but it was indeed beautiful!

Pretty much June marks half of the year being gone and another reminder that 6 more months before 2016 ends and we're back to starting a new year again. Is it just me or does it seem that after I had hit 25 years of living everything has been fast paced from there, life, time, etc. Let's not dwell on this but to only remind us that we have 6 more months to achieve our goals and make sh!t happen before 2016 ends (inserts hashtag #summersixteen).

I was fortunate to attend the Adobe Creative Jam in Atlanta that was hosted by Elevator Factory. Elevator Factory is a cool coworking space for creatives and just the area itself is just inspiring. Luckily I had my camera on me that night and began to snap away of the creatives who were in competition with one another to create a app using Adobe's exclusive new UX program that makes app creation easy. The space was dope, the people were inspiring and I had an all around good time.

It's crazy that May is and here and will soon be gone just like that. But in other good news, the spring semester is finally over and now I'm trying to decided if I want to go to summer school or just sit this one out and just be ready come fall. Since I decided to take on a few more classes to 1. get a ahead of the game for when I get ready to transfer and 2. I want to better my GPA. A 2.6 is bad but could definitely do better and remind to never take more classes than what I can handle.

Over the past couple of months I've been battling with a large breakout with acne and it just seems like my routine just wasn't doing it for me anymore so I switched up. It got worst and seemed to spread even more to my chest and I have just about had it. Then I took the cliché route and tried Proactive. Man oh man, that stuff is a rip off and didn't work well for me anyways.

So for the past couple of weeks or month to be technical I have been very MIA. There is no reason for me missing in action but to be honest at one point I didn't feel like blogging then classes started kicking my butt with all these short deadlines then midterms came along and see I just couldn't couldn't my life together. But in the meantime during my unintentional hiatus I have done a lot go brainstorming for my blog and my youtube channel and if you haven't already subscribe now.

I had been a little quite around this blog but for good reasoning I promise. I've been focused on balancing work and school and personal projects on the side and blogging has been put on the back burner. Not intentional, but kinda of happened like that. Oh and then I got sick. Don't you just love life woes?
One thing I can say I have learned about this little break is that, TIME and MONEY speaks volumes. My time is precious and shouldn't be fooled around with and I now realize you have to put your foot down and turn away certain people and things if it doesn't benefit you at all. I too, have a life just like everyone else and I can't just drop what I'm doing just to do something you need me to do yet alone if it's not a paid gig, on to my next subject.......
Now money....... well money is something we all want to make and is definitely something that we all need and when it comes to doing projects for certain people sometimes I won't charge because I understand of how I started up, I didn't get paid right off the back.... this was my first mistake to let this keep going and now these exactly same people expect that "free" service all the time. So i had to stop it and turn them away because it wasn't benefiting me at all.
To all of my freelancers in whatever creative outlet you work hard in, I would love to hear some of your point of views about how you transitioned into from doing free work to now getting paid for your services? Please share your comments below.
