day 2419 – leave final note

working at hospitality designs has put a lot of stress and strain on me, both mentally, emotionally and physically. i was there even at my worst moments whether in a cast or on crutches, migraine or sickness. over the past few months i’ve really done everything in my powers to get all my numerous pressing deadlines. i saw the fruit of the new branding, new websites and new brochures. work either digital or in printed form that i can truly say i’m proud of. if this is the end, i’m proud of what i accomplished here

day 1758 – cad conversions

day 1295 – another move 

the department has had a lot of changes since the new manager stepped in. my role has been flipped upside down and i’m not on a team anymore. i’m on my own transitioning into developing a new collection of drawings and renderings. this will be a good change and a good challenge for myself. and although my desk has been relocated, the same desk setup still applies
