i’m gonna make it after aaall

well well well it’s official! i am now a self-employed freelancing small business owner with no day job!!

i don’t really feel like writing anything about the old day job – i am definitely happy to be leaving it behind – but i did spend almost 3 years with that job (6+ different locations), which is far longer than any previous job, and i do have lots of happy memories associated with it… playing with cameras, fun co-workers, interesting customers, lots of knitting… so i’ll just show you some photos and leave it at that…

so now all that is behind me and i’m starting my adventure! today has been a bit of a vacation day, just working on a knitting design that’s due soon and hanging out with pete. my dad and brother matt are coming to visit this weekend-tues so i’m letting myself take a mental break from now until they leave, mini-vacationish time, then my real official day of “work” will be next wednesday.

i am super happy about the timing of this great plunge – i graduated college 4 years ago in june. it just seems so fitting that i’m in high school 4 years, college 4 years, then 4 years of temporary work and living situations, figuring out what i’m doing with my life. i spent this time between college and now in temporary cities, working temporary jobs, just doing my stuff on the side… and now i’m in a place that feels permanent, finally starting what feels like a career. perfect!

and, high five to kristin, also starting her new life as a self-employed crafty superstar! woooo! yeah!! virual blog party beer-clanging! we’re gonna rock this working for ourselves thing!

now i feel a little bit like mary tyler moore… How will you make it on your own? This world is awfully big, girl this time you’re all alone… Love is all around, no need to waste it. You can have a town, why don’t you take it? You’re gonna make it after all…
