Home Stretch

So here I am, utilizing my blog as a procrastination tool for packing. I'm heading home for Easter this weekend and trying to take as much back as possible; I'm realizing there's only 2 weeks left and I still have A LOT (3 years worth) of stuff in this house. Clothes along could fill my whole car...then there's my 2 printers, giant painting, kitchen supplies...thank goodness I'm not taking any furniture back! Also, it would be much easier if Kirksville would make up its mind weather-wise...I don't want to take allll my winter stuff home considering we've had days in the 30's this past week, and with this place that could happen next week or the week after as well. Overall, this is really nothing to stress about, if you wanna talk stress talk about my viscom show...1 1/2 weeks til that nightmare is over. I suppose I'll return to packing now, later blog!

Job Hunting

Job hunting is one of the most anxiety-filled, stressful and tedious tasks ever. I constantly worry over each word in my cover letter, the order of my portfolio pieces, appealing to employers in every aspect of their job requirements. If you're lucky, you already have a job...if I'm lucky, you're someone I emailed about a job and decided to explore my blog. I've job-hunted before, don't get me wrong. However, this is real life we're talking about now. I'm not going home and looking for a job that will just pay for my gas while I live comfortably at home, I'm going to need an actual salary now. Is it too late to take back being an art major? It's true what they say...the pay's not the best. So you may be asking yourself "What's this girl's plan? She sounds pretty lost..." I am somewhat lost, but I've decided (unless other opportunities present themselves) to move to the great city of Austin. I loved being there last summer and it seems to have plenty of opportunities. Hopefully the family doesn't mind putting me up a few short weeks until I get my first huge paycheck (kidding) from the hopefully awesome job I will acquire (not kidding). If you made it this far, I commend you on putting up with my job hunting woes. Until next time, starving artist out!
