RAW TUESDAY - Project X



I missed last week's RAW Tuesday post, but to compensate I present a very special RAW post tonight. This is a sneak peak into my SUPER SECRET PROJECT! ooOOOooOoo

I've been planning out this 'project' for quite some time, but the idea didn't fully come together until recently. I'm going to be as discreet as possible because I don't really want to give anything away. And I'm sure some people are thinking it's way more crazier than it actually is. One of my friends thought I was doing some kind of collaboration with BENBALLER, the really super rich Korean American guy who makes custom jewelry. I have no idea where that idea came from. I'm pretty sure I'd be set for life if that was the case.......
Sadly, that is not the case, but it's still pretty damn exciting.

Honestly, I had two major things on my mind since the beginning of 2014: 1. Move to San Francisco and 2. Find a job I will actually like. With my recent luck, I'd probably have a better chance of finding a job in San Francisco at this point, but I also know that the reason it's been so difficult for me to find a job I like is because I really don't know where I want to end up. I've been telling everyone for years that my "dream job" is Disney -- or Riot Games (because League of Legends....) but one night I was laying down and asking myself, "is that what I really want?" I feel like I honestly tell people that because it WOULD be awesome to end up at those big name companies but there's no real motivation behind getting there besides the fact that I'd have a killer work experience. 

How does this tie into my super secret project? Well, in a lot of ways it ties in EVERYTHING. And in a lot of ways, it's just a small, insignificant experiment. But despite what I may or may not find in the working world, I know that I'm happiest and feel the most fulfilled when I'm doing things for myself. And this project is really all about me and what I love. 

There's a lot of planning and executing that is yet to be done for this project. Honestly, it's still in the initial stages but things are finally starting to come together, piece by piece. 

I have been utilizing Pinterest as a giant MOOD BOARD for my design process. Feel free to follow me HERE. I never actually used Pinterest until I started this project. I just never thought I'd really get anything out of it. But honestly, that place is chalk full of inspiration! I recommend making mood boards for any projects you're working on -- big or small. It's a great tool for keeping your aesthetics in shape.
