An Update

I can't believe just how long it has been since I updated this. There is no way to write down everything that has happened. So, I will just give a brief description of most of the things I've been up to. First, let me fill you in on my internship at Hatch Show Print in Nashville. What an amazing experience. The people were great, the work was tons of fun, and the knowledge I gained is invaluable! Those of you who are reading this and don't know what I did at Hatch, allow me to give you an idea: Hatch is known for prints, not just any prints, but mainly posters. These posters are created entirely by hand. I learned how to use a letterpress. I set type, mixed my inks, and hand-cranked the press! It was so much fun to see how they use to print everything before computers took over the industry. There are several posters I designed that have been added to my portfolio. :) After my internship I took the next two weeks and headed home. Yes, I drove all 21 hours...straight through.... well, with the exception of a half hour nap. No, I won't be driving a length like that again without stopping for the night. lol It was so wonderful being home. A span of about two to three months had accord since my last visit with my family. It was a nice reunion. I got to help around the house and with the gardens. Back on Southern's campus I am already into my last year here. It's going to be hard, but I can do it by the grace of God. The last great development in my life (that I would have mentioned first if I had put these things in order of importance) is that I am dating! His name is Jere and he is the most wonderful man I have ever met. I believe that God has blessed us both with this relationship. :) I will write more when I have the chance. God bless!!
