Aloha from paradise,
I've been freelancing (aka unemployed) for 6 months, and a full-time student for 3. Its REALLY tempting to take graphic design job offers, but I'm holding out for an interior design job, even if its relatively entry level. It would be such a waste of my tuition, homework hours, and new endeavor efforts to jump on the first available/income producing graphic design gig.
Remind me this if I'm tempted again.
