Need to do ...

This past Friday I had the "Not just pretty images, particular theme." showcase at Armitage & McMillan and it was quite the success. There were a lot of people who came out and supported and there were some that reached out and said they would have loved to be there. I highly appreciate everyone of you! While I was setting up and prepping for people to come on by to see the work I was showcasing I thought to myself that I have done a lot of things to get to that very moment. I remember thinking at the age of 19 that having a gallery showing would be awesome. I did a lot of work that I hated doing, I've done work that doesn't relate to being a creative at all but there I was getting ready to showcase a body of work. Last week was my first week at a new job and needless to say I feel like I don't belong there. It's actually a really good paying job with great benefits in which I previously already had but I know that it's not for me at all. Yet again, another stepping stone, another thing I have to do to get to the next point in my life. I'll only be there tops 5 months as I'll be starting school full time in late Feb, early March next year. (It's crazy to think that this year is almost done also) 

The program I'm enrolling in is a 10 weeks immersive course that is 9-5 M-F. I got this job in order to save money to have during I'm in school as I will not have time to have a job. I'll more than likely still be at AMC but that's only on Sundays in which I could find a way to manage that. As it is only 10 weeks i'm afraid that the work load is going to be so heavy that I couldn't even take on a part time job in the evenings therefore this job will serve as the fuel for the 10 weeks I'll be highly focused on school work. 

I guess my point of it all is that as humans we adapt, and that's one trade that allow us to have the life span that we have. The ideal situation would be that I get out of school and get the ideal job I've been dying for to move on in my career but if it happens to be that for some reason I can't find a job, I'll take on a job I have no interest in what so ever, etc to be "okay" and treat it yet again as another stepping stone ...
