Unfortunately not, they have a policy about what we can and can’t print, including a clause about only allowing “artistic nudity”. I’ve have to deal with a few folks about that specific clause, including finding a customers design that they wanted to print that was straight up just some ladies spread leg camera phone nude.

Well, right now I’m working as a design consultant (customer service rep) for a large online custom printing company. Day to day its just answering live chats and emails of people who don’t know how to work a computer but want a shirt printed. Though recently me and my team lead have been developing a proposal to start offering graphic design services which would me actually working at a job that my degree actually applies to.
Other than that I pretty much do absolutely nothing except get absolutely plastered at my friends apartment every friday and then hide in my house on the computer the rest of the week. Such a fascinating life I lead.
What salon do I have to go to to get my hair to do that and can I have it in purple?

Yes, golly it’s been almost a year since I graduated at this point (oh god lets try not to think about that. I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Dance (the most useful degree, I know). I was terrified about the job market as well, I had a bunch of friend who weren’t graduating due to how shit jobs were, but I couldn’t afford to keep paying tuition, so out into the real world I went.
I had a job set up at a summer camp for summer, but after that I have 2 going on 3 months of soul sucking job searching. Graphic design is a competitive field, and you’re expected to do it all; print design, web design, coding, user experience, blah, blah, blah. and like any job now-a-days, every job out there expects you to have two millennia of job experience in the field before you can even apply.
There isn’t really a lesson to this, except that finding a job takes work. Sometimes it’s easier than others, some people will have better opportunities than others. You just have to hit the pavement and go, apply everywhere, even if they expect more experience than you have, as long as you feel you’re qualified based on what they’re asking give it a try.
And then eventually you’ll end up in a customer service job that vaguely has to do with your degree.
I lied, that’s the lesson: when the dust settles, it’ll always be customer service.
Okay so I am approaching 10,000 followers! I am so grateful for all of my followers, for supporting my content and sticking with me even in my unintended hiatuses. So I really want to do a giveaway to celebrate and thank my followers. Nothing massive, like laptops or tablets or some of the crazy giveaways I’ve seen. But I can’t figure out anything fun that I can giveaway that is both related to the blog and yet won’t get me arrested or in trouble.
I’d love to hear any suggestions you have. What would you be interested in for a giveaway?
Oh man, don’t you just hate it when vaginas do that?
I don’t think you really understood me when I used the phrase “titty twister”
