I haven't forgotten about dA, I haven't left... I've just been painfully busy. I hated it. I was so miserable that whenever I was home, all I would do was sleep.
But I realized what the cause was and I took action. Unfortunately I am no longer employed at MINI (Cooper), but it was something I needed to do. Instead, I was able to find a job that was exactly what I'd been searching for. It's what I'm going to school for and it's also right next TO my school so I don't have to quit school to go to work.
I'm a Creative/Marketing Assistant. It's getting my foot through the door in my field (graphic designer/web developer). I'm loving the job so far, and the best part is... I get off at a reasonable time. I have a MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY schedule, oh my god. I forgot what those were like. I'm so stoked, you have no idea.
It's closer than my old job, so I'm saving on gas money. The job pays less than what I was making at MINI, but at the same time it's a stable paycheck and it's the field I've been trying to get into for years. It still pays the bills, so I'm not concerned. I don't need a whole lot of free money anyways.
But yes, this week has been the happiest I've been in months. My new job even has a gym, which I've been trying to utilize from time to time. It's so wonderful. My boyfriend is pretty happy too, since i'm not coming home and bitching about this or that.
Instead I have funny stories to tell about the antics that go on there daily!
I love it.
