It has been a crazy few months! My career path has taken to meandering a bit at the moment. I left my job as an art director in July to work for an artist, where I was supposed to take over marketing, design and social networking but that wasn’t what my job ended up being. So I’m once again in the midst of a job shift; I’m taking a part-time graphic design position with a local center for the arts which I am eager to begin. I am also pretty excited about getting back to design! In the midst of my career turmoil, I have kept creating though clearly this blog has fallen to silence.
Frankly, I don’t know what I am doing. Is that ok to admit?
The part-time portion of the new job is bit nervewracking. The uncertainty of my next steps has me a bit frozen at times. I’m drumming up some freelance clients and trying to get this next version of rottencupcakes back in gear.
I’m often hesitant to share these bit of indecision and fear; I am afraid. I am afraid of failure and I am afraid of judgement. So, yes, sometimes I need reminders to be brave, even if they’re cheesy, brightly-colored watercolor and gold paint reminders that I make for myself. I still don’t know what I’m doing but maybe I’ll figure it out as I go. I’ll be posting more frequently, playing catch up with the things I’ve made and the adventures I’ve had over the past few months and making new stuff all the while. I hope you’ll enjoy the ride with me. Cheers!
