I’m alive, promise! I miss blogging, but the best part about having a blog is that it’s always there when you need it. This post has a dual purpose:
1. Let you know where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to.
2. Let me know where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. …Lot’s has changed in these first few months of 2015. All good.

I started a new job a few weeks ago. I KNOW, I know… what about all that freelance talk and finally being free..?
So, I’m the type of person who doesn’t take anyone’s word and must experience something to know if I like it or not. This tactic is a potential waste of time, sometimes years, but at least I always learn something. Many people told me freelance wouldn’t work for me, but I had worked a full time job since graduating college, so I had to see what this working-from-home-in-pajamas-thing was all about….
Turns out, not so great… I learned right away that too much freedom for me is not actually fun. I realized that I actually prefer structure and deadlines. Odd, I know. And while I know I’m not great at socializing and networking, for some reason I thought things would be different. Nope.
I don’t regret leaving my last job for one second, but I’ve been eager to get back to work, as weird as that sounds. However, it must be the right job in a smart, creative environment… I just won’t settle anymore.

Well, as of a few weeks ago, I found a gig. It’s a graphic design position in an interior design firm. I like it so far, but it’s a contract position, so we’ll see how long it lasts.
Needless to say, I’ve been busy lately. My new job has me working long hours and I’ve held onto all my freelance work as well. But it’s all good, since I would so much rather be busy than not.
See you in another couple months…….. Just kidding.
