Where Have You Been?
I know. I can explain.
First off, I’ve missed you all so much. After dealing with imposter syndrome with my brand and career, I took time away to think about what I really want to do. This led to me quitting my job and finally letting my creative juices flow.
This is a big part of why I’ve been so silent. My last job, for lack of a better word was toxic. A few months in and a bit of internal restructure later, I realized that my environment was only going to get worse. I loved the organization and most of the people I worked with, but it's true what they say about having a relationship with your boss. I'll admit there were areas I needed to improve on, but for the most part it wasn't a great personality fit. So, instead of leaving I decided to stick it out and do the best that I could do. However, when things began to become too unethical, I left.
Yep, I quit with no job lined up and no official back up plan. Unofficially a great job opportunity came my way - using my degree and all, but due to budget cuts ... Well you know how that went - right, the position was no longer available. But let me tell you, that last day left me feeling so empowered. And yes, it was financially irresponsible decision, but I saved a bit before I took the leap. I also felt so very anxious because this was literally the first time in years I was jobless.
I've begun working for a great company outside of my field, but a job nonetheless. I’m finally finding my balance, and am working on creating more content for the blog once things slow down a bit. In the meantime, I did travel quite a bit and have a few big projects in the works!
I’m back, and this time I mean it. It’s amazing what a few weeks off can do for your mind. I'm feeling inspired, and this website is more than just a blog, it’s a curation of all things that I’m passionate about. That's why I did a complete rebrand! I want this space to be an outlet that’s purely creative, full of things that ignite my soul.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Occasional ramblings will continue. While I've matured from recent graduate two years ago, I can't help but feel like I need to write. You'll see more of my professional work (i.e. design, social media/branding included). Did I mention that IRL I do branding and design work? Yeah... this site seriously needed some improvement. You'll also see DIYs, more travel guides + wellness post. Oh, plus a few collaborations, product post and more youtube videos. I'm even working on a full webpage dedicated to my hobby.
Thank you all for your constant support and patience.
