Ready, set, go!

Today is March 9th, 2012. It's been eight months and a few days since I started my apprenticeship at 8th Light.

Today is also the day I start my challenges, which makes it a pretty interesting day for me. I have so many different feelings at once. I'm nervous, of course, a little nostalgic, and also really excited. This next two weeks will probably rush by, as the past eight months have, as I push my skills to the limit and put everything I have into the assignment that I'm given.

It has been an awesome eight months. Looking back to when I began, it's amazing how much I've learned—and it's just the beginning. I'm so thankful to Billy for accepting me as an apprentice and helping me become a better designer. I can't wait to see what the future holds.
