For almost the whole year, I have been going through quite some changes. So much has happened, and time flew by quickly.
In the end, I'm happy with the choices I made for myself, as I feel I have cleansed my soul. Last February, I quit retail-- I worked there for about five years. I decided to continue to study fashion, even if fashion doesn't offer me a sustainable income, it is part of my hobby, afterall. It was a bit risky quitting my old job, but I have found temporary work places at a county fair and at a junior college bookstore.
Now, I'm working as a receptionist at a hair salon pending to get into a local beauty school. I don't plan on making fortunes, I'm content with living modestly-- I just need enough to enjoy art and live comfortably. Fashion will always be my life-long passion, but for now, it will just be something that I'll work on the side. Although I'm still a busy person, my new lifestyle allowed me some wiggle room for my love life (boyfriend), family time (sister), and for my quiet time. Maybe I just got lucky, but I'm glad that I didn't ignore what my heart values.
