You know Plato's cave allegory? I think that's what I have been experiencing this past month and a half--the part where you get out of the cave and realize where you've been.
I quit my job at the museum. Because I have a new job where I am appreciated and am allowed to grow and embrace who I am. Suddenly I've become much more confident in myself, my ambitions and style. And happier. so. much. happier.
Great things are taking shape at my new job and hopefully I'll be exactly where I want to be at this time in my life in a few weeks.
Who knew you could actually feel wanted, appreciated and special where you work? I thought being under-utilized was the norm.
Also, I've made a goal to take more pictures
but this will not happen until I can afford the coveted iphone...
Soooo until then here's a picture of me and Ryan on our trip to the Oregon Coast.
we're real winners.
