I’ve got an arm full of mosquito bits from holding the light for these but look at how amazing they are!!!!!!!!!!
This week I realized I’m a target for people to snap at for no reason. I think at one point during the week I even thought, “okay, i think this moment just reassured that moving away from toxic people, no matter how loyal I am, is the right thing to do”. I do not enjoy being humiliated, nor yelled at in front of others from something I didn’t do. After talking tonight with this couple I’ve babysat for multiple times, and crying, (lots of crying) I’m ready to leave toxic people behind. So I’ve set an actual date for a my cross country move! I’m excited to start new relationships and experience people outside for the central valley! Now I just need to let my current boss know :/
Okay, I’ve got and official job offer at a place I feel like I’m going to love and they want me to start whenever is convenient for me in a state that as a significantly lower cost of living, cheaper gas, and amazing music. I’ve been calculating exactly how much I spend a month on things to see if what they’ve offered me will allow me to live comfortably. I’m ready to quit my current job :D

So here’s the story, I’m sure whoever of you have me on Facebook have already seen a post or two about a job offer I’ve recently gotten so let me explain. Since my trip to Tensenesse this past summer, I’ve had a strong urge to move to Nashville. I’ve been writing down pros and cons about living there and leaving California and all signs point to yes. I’m 22 and don’t have anything tying me down, why not right!?
So with that list, I started searching for jobs anywhere and everywhere. Googled places that I though were cool, shot them an email, craigslist searched, literally took every opportunity to pimp myself out. So a company that didn’t even have an open position responded to my overly enthusiastic email asking me to send the necessary links and .pdfs (portfolio, resume, cover letter, and I went ahead and added my social network links so they knew I had nothing to hide, after all, I’m quite fabulous). After a couple of emails back and forth, they wanted to talk on the phone with me. Now being that I work full time everyday I had to take their call privately during my break in the quietness of the photo studio, and after spending 45 minutes discussing all things graphic design, California, and me, they gave me an unofficial job offer! I think I was just amazed that someone i don’t know, a stranger, liked my stuff and work enough to put their faith in taking me on. And that I made it happen, with persistently humorous emails and my knack for sounding like I am the least bit interesting, I saw an opportunity and I took it.
So now, I’m waiting on an email back with official job talk (salary, starting day, workload) to give an official yes to them and put a two week notice at my current job. At least I think I’m going to say yes, it’s hard to look at the bigger picture when everyone is so dependent on me here. But the way I see it, it will give me an opportunity to live for me and no one else for once. Too many people take advantage of me here and I just let it happen because I’m too nice of a person to say no to anything.
So in ending, I think I’m ready.
I’m astonished by how far the two of us have come, like i don’t think you can understand how nerve-racking it was shooting these portraits of Liz. Shooting another photographer is tough to say the least. But I’m extremely proud of this work we’ve created together and how both of our talents compliment the other. When I move, I think not having Liz around to reassure me that I’m good at what I do is going to be the hardest thing ever. Even though many people reassure me when I doubt myself, I value her opinion in the highest of highs. Fur real doe
