THE GIRL HERSELF

I feel like it's only fair that my first post should introduce the girl behind the words. My name is Rachel a recent design graduate, and just like anyone stepping into the design industry, or anyone, anywhere trying to be successful, I don't want to be the one that gets swallowed up in it all, nor do I want to be so overwhelmed I get comfortable sitting behind a computer screen doing the same thing day in and day out. I was once told some good advice, that when you feel comfortable in a job, that's when it is time to move on.

Life should be enjoyable and usually the most exciting parts come from decisions that once made you feel uneasy or nervous. Easier said than done I believe, but for me doing things that I know will scare me, I know will also be the fun memories I remember. 

moments before zip lining in Croatia ... and yes I was scared.

To have that thrill in life with whatever you are passionate about I think is key to a happy lifestyle, whether it's sitting front row in a fashion show, running a marathon or jumping out a plane. Stay out of your comfort zone, try new things and be ambitious, laugh along the way and share it with those you love.
