Some of you may know I have been wanting to find something else to do for a living for awhile. Weeeell, today is my last day of my current job. I know, can you believe it?!
I’ve been in my current position for 4-1/2 years, at my current company for 8-1/2 years, and working as a paralegal for about 17 years. During those years, I enjoyed any opportunity I could find to do research and writing (my background is in journalism). But for the past few years, I found myself coordinating mortgage transactions in an investment department. Yea, not really my thing. But I was professional about it and made the best of it. Because that’s what you do. I woke up one day and realized I was not headed in the direction I wanted to be going.
I am looking forward to having a few weeks free in August before school starts. I am going back to school in fall for more graphic design classes. I will be take Drawing Fundamentals, Computer Graphics and Concept Development. Doesn’t that sound fun? (and more my style!)
I am also excited to have more time to work on products for my shop. I have been invited to be a vender at a local products expo in Madison the last weekend in November, so I need to figure out what to stock up on for that event.
I’m excited and nervous about all these changes. I don’t know yet where this will take me, but I can feel it in my gut that this is a better direction for my soul. Should be quite an adventure!
