Its been a busy couple of weeks, as usual. Very little sleep and always with a coffee in hand--thats how I feel on most days. Every time I start working on a new project its like an awkward first date. I get really excited and want to plan my outfit, I think I have a good feeling how things will go, its always a bigger deal in my head than in real life. Then you go on this date and its ok, my favorite outfit was dirty, so I settle for the second favorite (read: cheaper materials than I would like or something similar), the date is 'an awkward getting to know you dance', he isn't exactly what I thought he would be (read: the work is confusing and changing directions), he's quiet so I think hes not into me (the work is challenging me and it feels like I'm getting nowhere), then he drops me off at my house and I can't tell if I even want a good night kiss (is the work crap? does it look weird? do I even want to touch it at this point?). Then I go a few days and suddenly it seems like a good idea to go out with him again (keep working). But man, those first dates, they are exciting and awkward.
Here a couple pictures of what I have in progress...awkward first dates with new ideas...
