This quote sums up how I feel perfectly.
As most of you know, I’ve been working at Reebok as an apparel designer since I graduated college back in 2008. It has been nothing short of amazing, and I definitely couldn’t have asked for a better job… truthfully.
However, last week I took my own advice and I quit my job.
Yup… put in my two weeks, packing up my desk, and this week will be my last.
It hasn’t really hit me yet. Until I wake up next Monday morning and realize I don’t actually have to go anywhere (or have a boss)… it will remain surreal.
It was a tough decision, but one I’m confident about. I am passionate about illustration and design… and what was once a hobby, has quickly become my career… so it’s time for me to take it on full steam!
Although, exciting as this is it also brings on a scary… and nervous feeling. I’ve given up the comfort of a corporate 9-5 job, and biweekly paycheck (YIKES)… but again… I’m super confident that things will work out. and if they don’t… at least I gave it a shot, right?!
My dreams sure do scare the hell out of me sometimes.
Anyway, I can’t wait to start putting my all into Paperfashion! It’s going to be an amazing year, and I definitely have my work cut out for me.
Thank you always for your support and love! It means the world to me.
and to my Reebok Squad… I’m going to miss working with you SO much. Thank you for being the biggest supporters of my ‘secret Paperfashion life’. I don’t think many employers would openly cheer me on like you did. I’ve been so fortunate to meet and work with such talented people. It’s been a pleasure, and I’ll never forget how awesome these years were. Oh. and luckily, we can still hang out.
Cheers to new beginnings!
