project life 2014 // week nineteen.

Dated: May 5 - May 11. Though I feel like I'm running out of steam a bit these days, this project still makes me happy.What I did this week: This week was kind of a crazy one. I realized that my passion for blogging and writing could actually be something more in terms of a career. I applied for a position at BuzzFeed (but still haven't heard back, wah) and started posting on their community site (see my page here) to show them what I can do. I got featured on their homepage twice in 24 hours, and it was a crazy roller coaster of emotions and opportunities for me. While this was all happening, my best friend Meagan graduated from college. Before all of that craziness, I had a pretty calm week with Max aside from panicking over my BuzzFeed application.About this spread: At first I hated all of the colors that I had going on, but then I realized that yellow was a recurring color from the first half of the week, and green in the second half, so I played on the colors. I like the way it turned out really bright and colorful, because a lot of weeks turn out pretty neutral. Details + interesting tidbits: I created the date card out of a bunch of the SC Camelot elements, and then kept the journaling on photos, but used cards as well. I journaled about Max getting a big boy bed early in the week, as well as BuzzFeed stuff. On the right side I included two screenshots in lieu of journaling cards to show my first two featured BuzzFeed posts at the top of their homepage. Like, right at the top #surreallife.Photo breakdown: phone photos: 11 + 2 screenshots // canon t3 photos: 0 // polaroid photos: 0. Taken by me, the self-timer, and shutter remotes.
