You Light up my life!

To fill in and catch up a little bit, I'll start back from my last post.  Almost a month after my first business trip, I quit my job.  I had quit going to school and put a hold on my dream of getting a bachelor's degree in interior design. Thanks to my husband getting a promotion at his job, I took a good solid break from it all and enjoyed a summer with my girls.  

As the summer got closer to ending, I figured I was ready to finish what I started and got registered for the Summer session (starting in August) at the Art Institute.  It was refreshing and exciting to get back to school.  I even won the People's Choice Award on my residential studio project.


It was during this quarter that I took my Lighting Design course and had an amazing teacher that lead me to the job I have now at Lightform Lighting in Phoenix!  I never knew (even after taking the class) that lighting could be so complicated! Thank goodness for lighting designers!  I'm glad I have my interior design background to help me in this job and I'm enjoying the people I work with, even the dog.


The Fall Quarter lead me into Sustainability and Hospitality Design as my favorite classes.  The classes were taught together that we were able to create a LEED project for our Hospitality Design. I found it interesting enough that I've set the goal to become LEED accredited!  I'll be taking the test within the next month or so.

Life is busy all around, but it's a good busy and we're moving forward.  I've started my senior project which will take 9 months to complete.  Only 6 more months till graduation!
