Shhhh

So, for the last few months I've been working on an idea for an e-cards website. X and I dreamed it up over a bottle of wine and we just started playing around with it. Since then I've recruited my genius web friend to build the bones of the site and I've been planning to get it up and running. The only thing we need is some inventory, which is really just a matter of me sitting down to design the cards. The layout is simple but I decided to add these cute little illustrations and it's sucking up way more time than expected. Unfortunately, it's also been pushed to the back burned after work, school, and freelance (paying) work.

On Monday night I had a few minutes before class so I started throwing a card together. My classmate came in and sat beside me and couldn't help but comment on what I was doing how funny he thought it was. Last night it was brought up again by R, and he believes in it so much that he volunteered to promote the site when it goes live. I guess I need to get off my butt and prioritize this project because it seems to be a pretty hot commodity. Who knows, it could be the new someecards. Maybe I should just scrap the illustrations and go for simple? But I think that might not be as funny.

Other than that little dilemma, things are going well. My team got a perfect score on our presentation on Thursday and we went out to celebrate at Manzana. All of us are seriously considering going on a study trip to China next summer. It's a big cost but actually very affordable for what is included and would be an AMAZING opportunity. 14 days in China visiting Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Hong Kong. Included in the proce is visiting 3 major places of business as well as trips to the Great Wall, a cruise on the Li river and viewing the Terra cotta Army. How cool would that be?
