First of all, again I'm sorry for the radio silence around here... I've been working on so much, been buried in so many ways, and have just been really short on time lately. Then, some other things have been going on, which is what this entry is about, so without further adieu... I have some VERY important news... I'm crossposting this entry from my Patreon, where I announced this yesterday through Patreon and Twitter, just in case some of you don't follow me in those places.
Here we go.
Usually I don't write in all caps because it's really annoying, but
just this once
i have to really scream.
MY DREAM IS COMING TRUE!!!!! FOR ONCE IT ACTUALLY SEEMS LIKE IT'S REALLY LEGITIMATELY HAPPENING AND I AM HAPPIER THAN I HAVE BEEN IN A VERY VERY VERY LONG TIME AND I JUST HAVE TO SCREAM IT BECAUSE I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!AAAHHHH!!!!!!!!
....Let me explain what I mean.
Last Friday I met with a friend I hadn't seen in a really long time. In passing, he mentions that his buddy works at home doing email customer support for some sticker company. I said huh, that's interesting. I wish I had a job like that. And I asked what company? And I named off a few that I knew of; Sticker Mule, Sticker Giant, Stand Out Stickers.... He said he didn't know. A few days later I randomly asked, out of curiosity, hey man ask your buddy which company it is he works for? I'm just curious. Found out that it was Sticker Mule, which as a side note I've been wanting to order stickers from them for 5ever but never got the opportunity. I said HUH that's really awesome that he works for them, and the job sounds super neat, sitting at home answering emails all day? I could do that and I would be ace at it, too. Right then and there I went to their website and looked up their jobs.
There was a position available for a customer service representative. Work from home, location in Colorado. Hours 2pm-10pm. Benefits. Good pay.
Description of the job was literally everything I am good at. I was actually overqualified.
Immediately, I dropped everything that I was doing (at work, lol) and I applied for the job. I quickly downloaded my resume I had stored on my Google drive, fixed it up, even made it pretty, wrote a BOMB DIGGITY cover letter and sent in my application. That was at.... 4:30pm on Monday, I think?
Then I waited.
I checked my email constantly. Like literally every 5 minutes, waiting for a response.
On Wednesday morning, I checked my email, and POOF an email from them appeared!! I literally felt like, ALL of my adrenaline release, seriously, I started panicking, my stomach fluttered, I wanted to cry with happiness. THEY ACTUALLY CONTACTED ME.
I had an interview, just 2 hours ago as of the writing of this entry.
I GOT THE JOB
THIS. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE DREAM COME TRUE FOR ME.
A work from home job. And a REAL job, not one of those stupid internet work from home things that are a total sham and pay you pennies for tons of work.
No, this is a LEGIT FREAKING JOB THAT I CAN DO FOREVER. I get to do it from HOME! I don't have to wake up EARLY unless I WANT TO!!!!!!! I don't have to deal with stupid traffic or rush hour or the morning and evening commute!!!!!!! I DON'T HAVE TO FREAKING WEAR SLACKS AND DRESS SHOES EVERY DAY!!!!
The absolute best part is that my work doesn't begin until 2pm in the afternoon.........leaving my ENTIRE MORNING FREE to do ART!!!!!!!! Right up until 2 minutes til 2pm when I have to "get ready for work" ahahaha!!!!!
This is the best possible thing I could ever, ever hope for. I'm shaking still. I haven't cried out of pure extreme happiness in a long, long time....... Possibly in my whole life. I'm so excited for the future. I'm scared for change, but, this is extremely GOOD change. I'm so incredibly thankful that this has happened to me, I just do not have all the words to describe how wonderful this is. I felt that this was right in my gut--and I just do not have gut feelings most of the time! To have enough personal time where I can work on my art, my passion, my one desire in life, and to have a real job on the side where I can make legit money while still doing a job that is in the art/design field!?!?
I couldn't ask for more at this point.
This has been my dream for so, so long........ I just feel like I'm dreaming still. I fear something could go wrong at any moment.......but it won't. It's pretty much EXACTLY what I had hoped for all this time. A work from home job that gives me time for ART. I finally. FINALLY get to quit this job, that I have hated and dreaded for so long, that makes me cry on the way to work, that stresses me out, that makes me fear stepping through the door....... I FINALLY GET TO LEAVE IT BEHIND.
Best part? You guys will be free of my bitching about my stupid stressful job!! xD!!!!
Better part? MOAR ART. Did I mention that already? Oh well. MOAR ART!!!!!!!!!
I feel as if a million-ton weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
I am finally going to be free.
Maybe dreams really do come true.
