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.

I seriously never been the one to "plan" something but I figure this year I would try it for multiple of things instead of when it comes to just my school work. There a multiple of planners out there but every planner isn't for everyone, well at least I don't think so. I believe when choosing a planner, you should look at what fits your needs and what all you will be using it for like for multiple uses, just school work uses, small business use, etc.

Uhhh well hello 2016!
A muted needed blog break was exactly what I needed and now i'm back more motivated and a little bit more focused. Don't hold it against me I just have so much on my mind right, but good things though. Anyways, in 2016 I still wanted to keep the monthly goals going just as a self reminded to myself and for those that may want to share or give input. I'm all about wanting to receive advice from others, I mean that's how we learn and know new things right? But I have a couple of things up my sleeve for this year so mostly stay tuned but in the meantime lets get into some of these goals.
- Spring Semester is GRIND TIME!!!!- So with this being my most toughest semester yet and especially after this semester and summer school I'll be done, I've been really in deep thought about how I can truly stay motivated and not get so discouraged so easily. Better yet how can I create better study habits, time management, and just in general not to freak the hell out. Advice is more appreciated or any tips on what my other fellow college students do.
- Blog and Website planning...... Youtube maybe??- I hate scheduled posts yet alone writing everything out before hand. I can't tell you how many drafts I have just saved up lol. But I will try my best to manage my blog, school, work, and doing my photography on the side. Oh yea, I created a youtube channel. Yes you read right! More so for travel vlogs since I do have some trips coming up and maybe for some other experiments but most definitely subscribe to my channel By Sanniyah Sloan. I gotta say this should be interesting because I hate being in front of the camera but I am experimenting a little bit with my creativity which I definitely can't wait to share. Oh and the website..... so it's totally up but I do have a landing page up where you can still book me through stop by www.sanniyahsloan.com
- Continue on the right track of budgeting- So I have already started this process since last year but it's nothing like a reminder for the new year to make sure you stay on the right track.
I know I always say it's not that many goals but it's a lot to me especially since I'm the master of procrastination in some areas.
but any who what are some of your monthly goals? share with me below!
