Late night

I made a bunch of drinks from my sister's Bar Book for all of us to sample tonight. Most included tequila, because I just bought a bottle of tequila tonight on a whim. It was pretty fun being a bartender. 

I've been busy getting everything ready for my little pet boutique. Moving this business from wholesale to the people. I just have a feeling that when it's up and ready I'm going to be overwhelmed with orders. I'm already trying to fill orders constantly while getting this shop started. I guess that's a good thing.  

Honestly, after all of the shop is up and good to go... I'm ready to take a little time off (besides shipping!) and have some time to myself. Next month I will be house-sitting and have a full week all alone. I don't even know what to do with that time!

I have recently started work on a major project - a friend's new business venture. Well, not necessarily "new" since it has been in the works for ages, but it's something I have recently been a part of. 

I have learned some things from doing this...
1.) Don't let your friend be your boss. If you're going into business together, be equal partners. 
2.) Make sure to have meetings with everyone in the process. Go through everything 10 times if necessary. 
3.) Know about the business - and others like it. 

I'm working with people starting an online clothing shop that haven't even shopped for clothing online. For the design of the website, I have done research on many other similar websites. You need to know what to feature and how to feature it. Also, know the audience. 

They have had two years to do this research and I've only come into the picture recently. I feel bad about sharing my ideas, because it's not what they want from me. Basically they want a website without product descriptions, one size per item, no sizing charts. I'm going to have to do what they want. 

I'm thinking about dropping out on the project altogether. My deadline to get everything finished is Friday, but the amount of things missing from the website is going to continue to bother me. 

Didn't mean to post ranting blogs on here, but today has been super stressful.

A lot has changed

I haven't written a blog in so long that I was surprised at how much this website has changed. I'm kind of ashamed to admit that it took me a good five minutes to actually find the post button.

Recently I've decided (for the millionth time) that I am going to write blogs again. I forget how much I like writing, but I only forget it when I'm not writing. Strangely enough, I have actually been looking so much forward to NaNoWriMo that I'm probably going to do the summer camp in July before the big one in November. Last year I didn't really have anyone to "compete" with, so I didn't get a lot done.

Blogging shouldn't be a challenge... it should be something fun. I can't do it every day, but I feel like I should do it more often for myself.
