Adobe Trials

When you're poor, Adobe 30-day trials are the shit. Now for reals, I'll hopefully have a website up soon.

Holy Shit

I just started my new job today. I swear to God I continue to subconsciously sabotage myself. I basically made a bunch of decisions to ensure that I did a horrible job. For example, I only gave myself four hours of sleep and didn't bring a lunch or have a way to get lunch which resulted in me being brain-dead and grumpy the entire day.
I showed up late, disoriented and flustered after being caught in the rain, not knowing what to expect. I wasn't sure which position he hired me for because I interviewed for a receptionist position (which I later proved to him I couldn't have done). I also just expected this to just be a paperwork day for some reason. Not quite.
Turns out I am part of the production team. It's big commercial printing company whose name I got wrong when speaking to my boss this afternoon. I called it "Print Factory." It's "Print Facility." Idiot.
The woman who's the lead production manager wasn't there today so I had to learn and do all the things necessary to set up documents and machines in order for them to be ready to print. There are around four huge laserjet plotters for posters, two color printers, B/W plotters, a 2-Color offset printer, a 5-Color offset printer, die-cut machines, lamination, and some screens that look like they hadn't been used in a while among other things I can't remember.
I've got to give myself refresher courses on Illustrator, InDesign and apparently the English language/proofreading and craftsmanship.
I basically felt like an idiot the whole day. Tomorrow will be better.

Beautiful day in BK

Today was so gorgeous! I set out early to drop off resumes at various places around the area. I was lucky enough to be able to wear shorts and a tank top. Spring is in the air and the daffodils are emerging all around the area. I got some promising responses from a few restaurants and coffee shops, so hopefully something will come of that. Other than that the face painting business looks like it's going to have some real success. We have a real opportunity to promote ourselves and get the name out there this Sunday and have some leads for future gigs!!

We live in Brooklyn, baby

No internet or working computer = no blog posts. I also have no new work. Soon though.
