New Direction and Real Life

So we will start off this post as a follow up from the last stating that..I got my “big girl job!” Pop open the wine cooler..which I did! I am now on the starting the path that I envisioned when I stepped into my first interior design class in college. Sadly, it has taken me a little bit longer to get here than I envisioned on that first day but I m trying to tell myself better late than never and this is truly what I love to do.

The new job: the job is working as a design assistant at Stonewood Bath and Kitchen Design located in Walnut Creek CA. They take on all types of different projects: new construction, remodels and so much more! I m so excited to not only learn more about the design industry but implement the tools that I learned in college.

DSC_0026Rewind to college graduation when I received my degree in Interior Design. (I was so happy that school weight lifted off of my shoulders until I realized that real life weighs a whole lot more!!)

But with new job, I am losing another, I am not losing it per say just going about it differently. About a month ago I realized that I simply could not do skin care and interior design at the same type, well at least not the way I was doing it. I was running my own little skin care/salon business and being a business owner means you have to be dedicated 24/7, which I was. Until it got to the point that I couldn’t live on just my salon business alone and had to find another job to help pay my bills. Thats when I decided to turn back to my creative passion of Interior Design

Since I got my second job at Pottery Ban and had been reacquainted with my passion, my skin care business fell even further and I had to make the tough/adult decision and close it down. I m not going to be out of the skin care industry forever, I’m always going to keep my license up to date because there is always a salon chain out there looking for estheticians. I think one day it could be a great evening job or a job that would work out great with having kids sometime in my future. With being a twentysomething, I have found that I am still trying to figure out who I am and how I want to live my life and it is really hard sometimes to try to not compare your beginning with someone else’s ending. I m hitting a wall realizing that I thought I would have it all by the time I was 25 years old. The adult job with the pay that doesn’t require assistance from anyone, the man that I was ready to settle down with and the house. I m finding that it is not a bad thing that I m not there yet, it’s taking a little bit longer than I expected but I don’t want to rush the journey of getting there (the pay yes, I would gladly rush that!) but more than anything I just want to be happy and I m working my way towards my goals and finding how to be happy along the way.

Wish me luck tomorrow! First day at the new job!
