1. I don't mean to sound over dramatic, but I wouldn't be where I am today without this app.
  2. Not only was it an amazing outlet for my creative energy, and not only did it lead me to meeting all of you AMAZING people (I mean really, really, truly amazing), but it also landed me a dream job.
  3. I'm a graphic designer who's aspiration is to design for tv/film. I got an amazing opportunity to travel to Dublin for a workshop with Annie Atkins, who does graphic design for tons of beautiful films (Wes Anderson!!!!).
  4. When I got back, of course I listed about it.
  5. This list was later featured in a Li.st email. A wonderful girl named Tess from the LA-based digital studio Portal A got that email. She liked what she saw, found my site, still liked what she saw, and offered me a freelance job.
  6. I'm now on my 4th freelance project with them. It is a literal dream come true and I have gotten to work on SO MANY COOL THINGS!!!
  7. I can't wait to head out to LA to meet with them. A door has opened for me that I didn't think would happen for a long time.
  8. An era is ending, and while I am terribly sad about that, I am so excited that this opportunity will continue to push me forward in my career and my creative passion. And it's all because of Li.st.
  9. So thank you thank you thank you @Nicholas, @dev, @jeremysomething, @bjnovak. You guys are the best, and I'll always appreciate what you've done for me.
  10. And thank you to everyone else who has made this lovely little corner of the World Wide Web a real home for me. I love you!
