why yes, i got a job… as a waitress. i know, i know you’re all thinking, “wait, didn’t she move to chicago to be an awesome designer?” why yes, yes i did. i also have to pay my bills.
it’s been an ongoing joke with my family since kindergarten that i’m going to grow up to be a waitress. listen, you make one ‘about me‘ poster as a 5 year old and tell the class your dream job is to be a waitress and you never live it down. so here it is guys– livin’ the dream.
i start tomorrow at a local sports bar & grill. it’s about a 10 minute walk from my doorstep, which is very convenient– no metro or buses, just my little feetsies.
on another note, while thinking about being a waitress i got inspired to do a little google imagining. i found some old school waitress/diner photos and fell in love. here is a little bit of color inspiration. enjoy & wish me luck!
POST VIA THE CREATIVE CUP
Well, hello! Last time you guys heard from me I was just a small town girl working for the lovely ladies at The Creative Cup. Now I’m a big city girl, but luckily still working for the lovely ladies at The Creative Cup.
I graduated from Texas A&M recently (as in a little more than a month ago) and made a big move to the grand city of Chicago. Even though I’m so far away, I am still blessed to be able to work with M’Lynn and Heather (and Amy, too!)
This is a city full of inspiration. Everywhere I look I’m always finding new textures, beautiful typography, and fun little details. Here at TCC we are always trying to find inspiration in everyday life — and Chicago makes that simple!
Here are a few things I’ve stumbled upon. It excites me to share some of my inspiration with you guys! (note*most of these photos were taken via my iPhone as I aimlessly wandered around the big city streets.)
My advice to all of you creatives out there (or anyone for that matter), is to find inspiration in the little things. I know it’s very ‘touristy’ of me to stop and take a picture every 3 steps, but it’s those images that stem something amazing. Although cliché, sometimes in life you have to stop and smell the roses.
