How to learn things while working full time (as a designer)

Hello! This week I was reminded that I have a blog thanks to an email about my domain name renewal. I thought…oh yeah, that old corner of the web. I had best pop on and write a thing.. or two. Luckily, this realisation coincided with a video I needed to publish onto my YouTube channel. So, I shall let the video do the talking….OR you could read the list I made for you here! Enjoy, stay safe, be happy.

Working full time is hard, but trying to better yourself as a human and constantly fail, learn, grow, repeat is a full time job in and of itself. UGH…Luckily, a bunch of people have made a bunch of things that can help us with this ongoing friction in our lives. In this video, I explain the things that I use to learn, grow and pretend to be productive.
