A few things to catch up on…

If you’re just joining me on this odd venture let me go over a few things that I have not been able to update about here on my blog.

  • I am now engaged!
  • Got to sit down and interview the vk band D
  • I shall be 26 this Thursday~
  • I just lost my grandmother 2 weeks ago
  • And after 5 years of loyalty – I have finally quit my job!
  • What was that? QUIT?!!!?? Did I have a job lined up when I talked to my ex boss? NOPE! Am I CRAZY?!?! YES!! But seriously you guys, some of you have been my friends since college. Most of you remember back in 2007 when I first got this job. You have been through the ups and downs – my bitching about the hours – the lack of creativity AND even about the coworkers!

    Am I happy? I went through a roller coaster of emotions. I truly cried the night before my last day but it was something that needed to be done. After I packed up my desk and walked out – every coworker seemed to have started to talk shit about me. I didn’t do this on a last minute whim. I spoke to my ex boss about my concerns back in April when I first TRIED to quit. So what now?

    I went into panic mode – I haven’t even opened my doc file to my resume since I was in school!!!! Where did I even place that file….somewhere in the forbidden ocean of my external HD. Luckily word spread that I left my office and not even 7 hours passed when I was bombarded with calls. I got 2 offers – one was more a freelance side thingy adventure – the other is actually something more interesting that pays even more than my last job!! Catch is – I won’t be able to start for a few weeks!

    Thursday is my birthday – I’ll be 26 (old right?!) and wanted to start anew. New job, new life and a new blog layout! Check it out….pink! So not me ^^!

    Advice for the day: No matter what happens – don’t trash talk old employers. Even if they’re talking shit about me, nothing can be reversed so why try to change it?

      Just remember you are AWESOME!!! Don't worry anymore and stop selling yourself short, you are an amazing graphic designer don't ever doubt yourself.
      And since you made yourself such an awesome layout, I'll even let you make me a new one. I mean you made the first one so why mess with tradition? 😛 Plus this isn't my field of expertise, so I should just leave it for the master. YOU!!!!
      Please and thank you. 😀 <3

      @Momo – it probably was one of the hardest things I had to do. There was just so much bs I could take and in normal circumstances I probably would left things how they were and gone on with my life going into work unhappy everyday but something in me clicked. I’m grateful I have supportive family and friends who celebrated that I left with me!

      omg…I just realized that I don’t think I told you happy birthday? T_T I am terrible, you even hinted at your new layout being a bday present for yourself (in txt). Happy Birthday! My Mexican is getting old.
