The way I see it, I could have driven to and from California wine country 4.5 times with the amount of miles I've put on my car during my time working in the retail side of design. As my odometer climbed higher and higher, I became more and more unhappy with my work life. I made the best of the situation I was in and rode the roller coaster. I was bringing home my frustrations & un-happiness and a few months ago realized I needed a change before I was changed. I didn't want to blog negativity, so I just stopped blogging all together and hated it. After a tremendous amount of thought & prayer, I am ecstatic to announce that I've accepted a new position much closer to home with a new side of design I've yet to explore. One that will allow me to stop living the double life of a commuter with 7-day-a-week-retail-hours and once again do the things I've been missing at home. Today I say goodbye to traffic jams, lost side mirrors, trolls that hit you car in the parking lot and leave no note ... hello to volunteering, classes at the gym, bible study, and time to cook dinner again!
It's nice to be back and be "me" again. Thanks for sticking with me!
