I hope no one is coming to this site for the blog, but just in case, here is an update!
So, I have been working from home for the last 7 months or so thanks to the global pandemic. I thought it would be cool, but the novelty only lasted for about 2 months. Now every day is the same.. I roll out of bed and walk the 10 feet to my desk, where I sit all day by myself, doing a job I don’t particularly like. In fact, all the parts of my job that I liked have basically been cut out since working from home. So, I decided to quit!
My coworkers have been asking me where I am going from here, and I am a little embarrassed to tell them that I don’t have a real job lined up. The truth is, I just need some time to do nothing! The world is so crazy right now, what with the pandemic and the political climate, not to mention the fact that my current job is to provide technical support for public safety.. including some of the police departments that have been in the news recently for brutality against their citizens.
This crazy time has reminded me, though, that life is short and there is no excuse for doing anything that isn’t fulfilling.
So here I go! Taking the leap into unemployment. In truth, I plan to spend this time doing what I love – art. It may take some time, but I realized that I’ve never truly put the effort and time into my art practice to even try making a real go of it as a career. I’ve always worried too much about being able to pay my bills. Important for sure, but I’m at a point where I can afford to make that less of a priority.
Wish me luck! And buy my art! 😉
