I've been taking Graphic Design. Twice a week after work. Our assignment is to do a new identity for AT&T. Between my office job, Hubski, and this class I'm a bit behind and haven't had the time I've really wanted to dedicate to it yet. I was actually excited to turn the internet off and some work done last night but the universe had other plans.

Process, man. Process.
