I could start this post in a very hypocritical way and tell you that I don’t like Black Friday. But I would be lying to you, and so I won’t do it. Instead, I can tell you that it’s ok for you to take advantage of these days to go shopping (I do it too!), but (and this is a huge one) don’t lose your mind over it. Don’t sell your soul on account of a few discounts. Once you consider everything, you will see that you spent more money than you planned and all for nothing. By the end of the day, you just have more stuff but aren’t necessarily happier.
Everything that I know about being a designer was either learned within the few design courses that I had in University or was completely self-taught with the help of Doctor Google, design books, and design courses (like those on Skillshare).
