Never Let Schooling Interfere with Your Education.

Ariel Norling here. I write about education, technology, and my adventures in entrepreneurship- i.e. everything that I've learned outside of a classroom's walls. I am often sarcastic, sometimes serious, but always infinitely curious.

About Me   @ariel_n   Linkedin

My first foray into web and graphic design went live on Wednesday. 
It was an interesting experiment having to teach myself photoshop, html, and css throughout the summer while juggling product development and the million other random things thrown at me on a daily basis.
It already got me a couple of offers for freelance work and plenty of compliments. Now I know that the past couple of months worth of ripping out my hair and obsessing over little details were worth it.
Too bad the site going into alpha right before school starts means that I probably won’t have time to any freelance gigs. So here’s hoping that I’ve saved enough money to keep paying the bills.
