There’s no work or school today, so I’m here to give a little life update.  I’ve been busy.  A little too busy for my liking.

Back in September I decided to go back to school full time at SCSU.  I’m taking five courses, all of them in the Communication department.  Here’s a breakdown:

  1. Copywriting for Electronic Media
  2. Persuasion
  3. Advertising and Promotional Design
  4. Advertising and Promotions for the Internet
  5. Fundamentals of Video Production

I’m not entirely convinced it’s been a wise investment thus far, although I’ve certainly learned a few new valuable things.  Soon enough I’ll have that piece of paper that I’ll be paying for the rest of my life and who knows, maybe the world will suddenly seem like a better place.

My work, on the other hand, is something I remain quite happy with.  Aside from the daily modifications and improvements we’ve been making to the ecommerce site, we’ve been watching the custom lighting & restoration business become increasingly active.  At the moment we’re working on two major projects: one for a private residence and another for Yale Calhoun College.  It’s kept me busy with writing project updates, press releases, email blasts, and so on, but it’s been very gratifying to see how everything has progressed.

With the busy schedule I’ve had little time to work on any projects that under normal circumstances I’d take on simply for fun.  I’ve had plenty of ideas but a lot of things have been shelved for the time being because I know I couldn’t put in the amount of effort that I would need to.  One project that I have started on and probably shouldn’t be announcing yet is the CT Weekender.  It’s in a "beta" stage at the moment as I really don’t intend to fully take it on until this coming summer, but I’ve been playing around with it a bit and looking around to see if anyone might want to partner up and help it grow.  If anyone’s interested, please get in touch.

Those are the highlights – written for the sake of historical accuracy.  Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
