A Blog Series: Adventures of an Introvert In the Wild


As a part of my summer goal to go to one design-y meetup/event per week, I’ve also decided to do a little blog series called “Adventures of an Introvert in the Wild,” where I will recap these events.

I’m new in Portland (moved in October 2017) and I’m new to pursuing a design career (made the leap last summer), and since I didn’t move for a job or school, meeting like-minded people is a bit...different. Like, I think I might actually have to talk to strangers. Woof. Anyone who knows me knows this is not my forte.

But, for what I lack in small-talk abilities, I make up for with dedication and stubbornness. And I need cool people to hang/collaborate/work with gosh darnit, so here goes nothing!
