Working Like a Mad Woman

Or maybe I am just a mad woman working…

The sun has been shining here in Germany (finally, winter here has been horrible on my psyche). I woke up the other day and felt light as a cloud. I even cracked a smile. Which was really strange, because I am by no means a morning person. It took me a second to realize that there was sun streaming in through the uncovered window of my room.

Sunlight is a natural anti-depressant, people.

Anyway, I haven’t been able to truly enjoy the wonderful weather, because I’ve been working on my graphic design portfolio. I just created a poster for my friend’s band, O.J. on the Run, and I am pretty freaking proud of it.

Side story: every time I show this poster to someone, to get their opinion, the first thing out of their mouth is not:
“Oh wow, Sarah, you are a creative genius! That poster is amazing!”
It’s always:
“OJ? Like OJ Simpson?!”
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Which was actually hilarious the first time. And to answer everyone’s question: No, they didn’t name their band after OJ Simpson or orange juice, it’s the initials of their first names, Oliver and James. Although, I am sure they must have realized the connection.

Now let’s move on to the compliments ;)

I am also running with this idea to start a podcast! I bought a microphone and everything. Sadly, the microphone was really crappy, so I am going to have to invest a little more money into it, which is fine, it’ll motivate me to actually go through with this thing. I am so nervous to put myself out there! Yeah, I’ll quit my job and go through all my savings to travel, but the moment I come face to face with potential rejection I freeze up and want to run away. Probably a completely normal feeling, but really annoying all the same.
