Life takes funny turns

Mon May 1, 2017, 8:11 AM
Just received some rough news last week, but I'm still trying to stay positive. I left a good job of almost 4 years to start a new career. My only concern was that the position was grant funded, but I was assured that it had never been an issue in 15+ years. A few months into the new job I love, the grants were discontinued. Three people were laid off, including myself. So now I'm in the market for a new career. This will be an adventure! Maybe I'll try working remotely and have a career on the west coast here in Florida. I've also considered starting a business. Maybe freelancing? I'll update when I find something.

When you go through a negative situation, don't think about it. Make it positive.

I noticed you used the standard t-shirt object I adapted to dA for representing threadless.

so I did a threadless icons:

Threadless (avatar) Icon Threadless (avatar) Icon mid Threadless Icon Threadless Icon mid 
Threadless Icon 1/2Threadless Icon 2/2 Threadless Icon mid 1/2Threadless Icon mid 2/2 Threadless Icon mini 1/2Threadless Icon mini 2/2 Threadless Icon ultramini 1/2Threadless Icon ultramini 2/2 
Threadless (pen) IconThreadless (pen) Icon midThreadless (pen) Icon miniThreadless (pen) Icon ultramini

as the quality is not the best from me, maybe you want still use the t-shirt, but maybe the pen is good enought or the big wordmark is good too.

take a llama too.

:wave: hope you have a nice time :)
