I haven't been giving LJ much love lately, but i am still always checking everyone's posts. :]
I apologize if i sometimes do not comment, things have been so busy lately.
Here is a brief summary of what is happening lately in the life of Yasmin Marquez.

-I got offered the position of senior Graphic Designer or Senior Layout Editor for The Prospector, whichever position I chose, since both current positions will be free in the winter. I think I am aiming more towards Senior Graphic designer. Although I love layout, I think SGD would be better for me.

-I started a new job as a designer at The student Development Center at UTEP. They are usually in charge of UTEP events, propaganda, and what not.

-I also started working for Tom Darrah, a talented painter who also happens to be very funny and has a cool east coast accent.

-I talked to my friend Bobi, from LA today and she informed me she'd be moving back home (Arizona) to go back to school and get her BA (we studied at FIDM together). I am so happy for her. It's funny how many people I knew in LA (including myself) realized LA wasnt where happiness was, at least not at this particular time in our life. It's great to go back to school and still have the option of always going back. Life is all about experiences.

-I am becoming more involved with my church, different catholic organizations and my faith. It's awesome. I hope to be a good example to those around me, especially our confirmation kids, we are now teaching.

-My friend Ale and I are working on designing a book publication that features creative writings from not only El Paso, but around the world. We are super excited about this. yay!

-I feel like September flew right past me and I didnt even notice. Seriously, we are in October already!? But the weather sure is awesome!

-I really enjoy my printmaking class!

-Life is good.

Have a good week everyone!

thanks bella!
aren't you so happy you decided to go back to school? i feel i have so many more opportunities happening here, whereas in LA i would have been working a probably cool job, but without much growth and just stressing out about high rent and bills.
glad you are doing good!
