My Experience as being a Graphic Designer.
Hi Guys! As most of you may know that I've recently (September 19th, 2018) graduated from my college campus with my Bachelor's in Bachelor's of Fine Arts Graphic Design. However I'm stil looking for a job in my field. There are always going to be struggles with my career. If you don't know, Graphic Design is the most Competive job that is out there, thou any job will be competive to get, but being a Graphic Designer is the most difficult when you have many other designers competiting for the position and sometimes you may get picked or someone else will. I mean if they got pick they obviously deserved it. While in college I've made a lot of friends that are in Graphics Design. Honestly I loved making friends that were in my field of study however they were also my competition. Some I won't even call my competition because there work was questionable. However there was atleast 2-3 girls that are my competition and still are to this day. One of them she is my number 1 competition but I really love her style, however we would talk a lot about what we like and our art style and give each other feedback which to me is the reason why she's ranked number 1 on my list. You'll get Harsh critiques I can't tell you how many times I've gotten critiques or seen others get mad over critiques. When someone critiques your work, critiques are there to help you improve your art work, I've seen so many students totally avoid them because they take it to personally or they don't think that they need them. You'll get better at handling as you go on, because I've gotten praised on it before, at my first internship, it was the most harsh critique I've had however he was more surpirse at how composed I was to understanding it, and I explained that the school I go to help prepare for these moemtns because they're going to happen. Interviewing Skills You'll get a lot of interviews . If you aren't that good thats ok, you work on those skills through practice, also your artwork will speak for itself as well when they see your portfolio work. My college had help practiced with these skills as well, when asked "what skills have you acquired working at your current job" I had working at my school, my first response was "I didn't have any".....don't say that...a year and a half later, I actually got better and had said "I have good customer service skills, planning out our schedule, answering tech support questions" etc... It jsut takes practice and time, and don't be afraid to ask for help. Finding a Job Finding a job isn't that difficult believe it or not. However My location isn't a good plave to find my position. I live in Michigan, and if you know Michigan....its known for the automobile and professional buisness. Honestly Michgian isn't really known for a creative state. I suggest being open to traveling to a different state that you have a higher chance at getting a job. Computer / Software Computer: My advice is to not ask someone what computer they should get. either way of a PC or a MAC they're both good for design work. It personally comes down to your personal preference of what you like. For me I like both PC and MAC I like MAC's becuae they're more user friendly with Graphic Design than a PC but I can work on both platforms. Software: The Software that Graphics Designers use are Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. You can pay monthly or yearly for the programs however if you have the money to buy the programs then I would do that it would save you lots of time and money when you have the full software.

Santa Sushi Is A Thing.
So every Christmas, there's the eggnog, the gingerbread, the candy canes, and even that generic variety tin of three different popcorns, but maybe this 'Santa sushi' roll will become a new holiday staple food. (Okay, maybe not because I think the country's still polarized when it comes to raw seafood, but hey, guys! Check this out!) The good YouTubers of How To Make Sushi created a really awesome tutorial of how to make your own Santa sushi rolls at home. And while it's definitely too advanced for a beginner chef like me, it still doesn't stop me from watching the video the whole way through. For those of you who don't feel like watching a 10 minute video of some dude carving fish, I gifed up my favorite parts. Let's watch together, shall we? First, the sushi chef shaves the salmon down to make a perfectly red Santa hat. Boom. Add crab stick and a carrot and the hat is complete. Then, the beard is thrown together with fluffy sushi rice and some seaweed to create Santa's trademark jolly smile. Raspberry juice-stained rice is used to add color to his skin. (Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit more like Kraang from 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' right now?) Put it all together, and what do you get? Et voila! The Santa sushi roll is complete! So what do you guys think? Is this not the coolest thing ever? Am I the only one excited about this? Would you eat Santa's face too? Let me know I'm not the only easily amused one around here, okay?
The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
Holiday Cheesecake Cookies
Cookie dough: 400 g all purpose flour 125 g confectioners’ sugar 200 g butter 1 egg pinch of salt Filling: 100 g sour cream 200 g cream cheese, room temperature 100 g sweetened condensed milk 2 tbs lemon juice strawberry jam To decorate: Red and green food colouring, and wooden skewers Instructions: 1. Let’s start preparing cookie dough. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball. 2. Divide the dough in two, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball. 3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,5 cm. 4. Using a beveled cookie cutter, cut out circles and drape one circle over each bowl cavity of pan, pressing to form smooth surface. (I used a mini cupcake pan) 5. Chill whilst preheating oven to 350º F (180 ºC) 6. Slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes 7. Let them cool completely on a wire rack 8. When cold, prepare cheese filling. Mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream (or whip cream) and cream cheese on a medium bowl, until combined. Add lemon juice and mix well. 9. Place two tablespoons cheese cream on a small bowl, and another two tablespoons on a separate small bowl. Tint one of the bowls with red food colouring, and the other one with green food colouring. 10. Place 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on every cookie bowl. Fill with cheese cream. Use wooden skewers and red and green mixes to decorate 11. Keep in the fridge until set (about 4 hours if using sour cream, at least 24 hours if using whipping cream). They are better the next day. Can be stored several days on the fridge
