Some day I will get back into a routine with blogging. Life just kind of gets in the way sometimes. I wish it didn't have to, but I suppose if you're working toward a goal, it has to.
I was sitting down with my uncle last week and we were discussing my jobs, job hunting, interviews, and what is it that I really want to do. He was trying to understand how I can make a living through Fibers. The truth is that I can't right now. I have to work for it.
I know I can't just start up a studio right now because I don't have the money nor the knowledge on how to do something like that. Sure, I can set something up, but I can't really pay for it, or sustain it. There's money that goes into rent and supplies and whatnot, and what if I don't sell what I'm making?
My parents directed me to an article about an Etsy seller after commenting that maybe I should do that on the side. The ironic thing is that the article is called Secrets of the Richest Seller on Etsy and yet, no secrets are actually disclosed. Even at the end of the article it says something about doing the research to be successful on Etsy. Guess what? No links or resources to assist in doing said research. I think it's a poor article to be sure, considering no other information was given other than linking to the person's shop and website a bunch of times. At least I have the mind to link to things when I talk about them so you, dear reader, don't have to go off searching the web for whatever it was I was talking about.
Anyway, stepping off my soap box.
I'm awaiting an answer from a job this morning. If I get it, I'm starting on January 5th! If I don't, then it's back to the drawing board. It's a funny feeling to be standing at one of the many crossroads of life. I'm so nervous. I've had two interviews with the company already this past month, and I wasn't so nervous for those, which is good.
EDIT: I have been accepted for the position! Guess who is moving to San Diego?!
