Greetings friends, I love this time of year. The holidays are over and things are returning to normal. It's a time to reflect on 2012 and be thankful for what we have, or what we had. Don't let "what you could have done" bring you down — let's remember how far we've come. I'm grateful I can't help everything in my life.
I have goals for the new year, but I don't want to share them until they are closer to fruition (mostly because of this). It's just as important to trim the fat as it is to add new initiatives, so I'm going to take a little sabbatical from the blog during January. Exciting times are ahead (starting freelance in February), and I have a lot to get done. Book work. Portfolio. Boring business hullaballoo. Cleaning & packing & moving. And most importantly, I want to enjoy my last four weeks in Waco. These are the friends that took me in when I was fresh from the womb of Iowa. I'm not going to miss a breakfast or arrive late to a party because I'm writing a blog post. Plus, I want to make some changes to this little hut, and I can't do those overnight.
You can follow my Twitter (@beckycmurphy) and Instagram (@beckz_). Or, if you're really feeling saucy, follow @idratherbeshort on Twitter. If you're a design nerd, I might add some portfolio process peaks to dribbble along the way.
I can't wait to come back with this baby new and improved for February, and start my freelance career! If you have any work inquiries, please shoot me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you (really).
Cheers to 2013!
