First of all, two things: 1) This is what happens when my bangs are dirty and I'm too lazy to wash them. I'm sure that I don't look too different to you, but to me, my forehead looks incredibly and uncomfortably exposed. However, instead of washing and styling my bangs just for this shoot - in the interest of full disclosure - I decided to leave them as is. 2) Please excuse any awkward posing; the temperature was in the single digits. I'm pretty sure we finished these photos in record time! And now, to your regularly scheduled post...
As I alluded to in my last outfit post, things have been going wonderfully lately. Then, I couldn't say why, but today, I can! Just under two weeks ago, Chris came across a job posting that sounded absolutely perfect for me. I spent every night that week putting together the most awesome pitch/resume I possibly could. Just hours after I sent it off, they contacted me for an interview, which I had on Wednesday...and on Thursday, I found out that I got the job! So, starting in two weeks, I will officially be the graphic designer for an incredible company in a gorgeous office downtown. This has all been such a whirlwind, but needless to say, I could hardly be happier!
You know, it's funny how life works. Before I started college, I had planned to study graphic design, but I decided against it because I'd heard that the market was flooded. So I ended up studying creative writing (and loved every minute of it). After I graduated, I found a writing job...but their graphic designer quit, so I took over design duties as well. And now I've come full circle and gotten my dream job. It would be hard to exaggerate how much I learned at my current job - and leaving will feel very strange - but it's time for me to grow and stretch my skills.
Thanks for going with me on this journey, readers. I can hardly wait to see what the future holds!
