I’ve had a major life development take place this week.
I feel a lot like Sue in this SNL skit. For real.
You see I’d basically given up on doing anything with my design degree for an actual career. There has not been one opportunity in this area for the last 17 years that I know of. But back in May a friend texted me asking how my day was going. I think my reply was something along the lines of “Sucky. How about yours?”. She asked how she could help and I told her how bored I was sitting behind a desk every day. Doing the same tasks. Like the movie Groundhog Day.
After our conversation I went online and low and behold there was an ad for a design position new to my area. Official title: Project Specialist-Interiors for Lowes. It was perfect!!! Now I just had to apply, interview and get the job. Eek!
After several months I got an interview then a few days later I got offered the job. I may or may not have cried the ugly cry like I’d won Miss America once I got off the phone. To be able to do something your passionate about and get paid. It’s such a privilege. I am beyond excited and feel so anxious to work with clients creating spaces for them. It’s a dream come true and an answer to my prayers. I could do a cartwheel right now…but then I wouldn’t be able to move tomorrow:)
