I have been really inactive on DA lately (ever since my last journal entry) and I kind of miss it here.
The last month and a bit has been really tough on me, and I've been taking a lot of time to process things. I was fired from my job as a graphic designer and still haven't been able to find new work, due to the move my boyfriend is trying to make. Around the time I lost my job, my boyfriend decided he wanted to move up within his company and requested to be transferred to a different shop (he is a Service Advisor for a major tire company). The last month has pretty much been a whirlwind of town viewings, packing, and prayer. Ultimately I think we are going to wind up on Vancouver Island, which is pretty far from home and scares the crap out of me.
But this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to finally move out of my comfort zone and try something new with the love of my life. I don't know what job opportunities await me on the other side...I feel like I may have to give up graphic design as a full-time career, which saddens me to no end. But my last experience in the industry really soured me against it and I'm willing to see what else is out there before I try it as a profession again.
On the bright side I did a logo for a major tattoo artist's shop here in my city... and he loved it so much, he plans on hiring me again
I definitely intend on freelancing whenever I can.
Anyway... I probably won't have much internet access for at least a month starting in September, but I will be checking in whenever I can. Wish me luck........
