Oh my god! I just got a copy of the February number, with my first layouts EVER in it!
You have no idea how scary it is to open your first magazine and see your first layouts..
What if something’s wrong? What if it doesn’t look the same at all? What if it’s just plain ugly!? What if.. What if..What if.. Well, turns out everything looks just the way I imagined, but better! It’s weird to turn the pages of a magazine and all of a sudden see something you know you’ve made.. It’s.. Probably one of the coolest feelings I’ve ever felt.
Sure.. It may not be that big of a deal for some people, but it sure is a huge deal for me.
In a week the magazine is out and ready to be bought by thousands of women, and then I’ll show you some of my designs! Take care!
I can’t wait for February to come.. But at the same time I hope it never arrives. Why?
On Feb 1 I’ll get the keys for my very own appartment! I can’t wait until i get to decorate the place JUST the way i want it!! It’s my deam appartment. White, bright, top floor with a tiny balcony that shows the view of a million rooftops. I can see everything but no one can see me. Awesome. Now I even have so many graphic design stuff (going to tell you more about that later) that I can make my own little “graphic designer corner” aswell! Haha. I’m such a nerd.
However, nothing is ever perfect, right?.. When February begins my apprenticeship at Femina ends.. I have a few ideas about what I’m going to do next but, I really don’t want to leave. I love it here! The people, the magazine, everything is perfect! How could anyone want to leave that!? I’ve noticed that I’ve become picky. All of a sudden every magazine just won’t cut it.. As if I have the luxury to be picky right now!? I have a rent to pay and no job.. But you have to be a bit crazy to get somewhere, right? …right!??
