Work it

Today is the start of bigger things. I’d say at this point you’re all sick to your back teeth reading about me wanting to take my first step towards a career in design. I kind of had enough, burst into wobbly tears and made a lot of ugly crying faces these past few weeks, so I decided to take a step. A tiny one. I decided to commit one day a week to me stuff and one day less as an office zombie. It’s a risk, but not too much of one as I’m still a chicken shit / worrier and am terrified of failure. I haven’t made this move until now because it was far too easy to just not change anything. I don’t have as much balls as some of the bloggers I know who are not only doing it full time, but owning it. I can’t do that. Not yet at least. It’s a weening process for me. 

So far today I procrastinated by cleaning the entire apartment, doing a load of laundry and getting a meter reading before making myself breakfast. But I knuckled down and am now almost finished one of the items on my list. One step at a time. One day a week. Quietly bricking it as I go.

    I'm so proud of you, this is so cool! I know you've got it in you to make it! I said to the Lumberjack today that maybe I should go down to 4 days at work a week. He said "to do what?", my response was "not work"…. hhmmmm – maybe I've got the wrong idea!

    I can't wait to see what you've been up to! (No pressure!)

    Thank you so much ladies 🙂 Since I started this however, I haven't had a day off! Finding it tough to draw the line between my design time and actual time off. It's a lot tougher than I thought.
