Liberated from my job

That's right. I got my walking papers today. I wasn't let go for writing on my blog. I wish I had written how much I hated my job on this blog. I actually didn't bother to listen to their reasons for dismissing me. It seemed pointless. They had a stack of papers to sign and a check for me. It was self-explanatory.

To be honest, I'm relieved. I hated my job. I know it's called "Work" and not "Fun", but I truly believe you should enjoy what you do on some level. I did not. I am creative individual and I can only take so much of putting together other people's designs or calling magazines to get deadline extensions. I wasn't challenged or mentally stimulated. I was just a cog in the machine.

I liked some of the people I worked with, but the rest sucked. The plant manager was a poor manager who had no balls and never gave anyone a straight answer. I can count on my one hand the people I still liked. There was so many big egos, backstabbing, and double-talk. The company had become Survivor Island - Marina Del Rey. Towards the end, I had no idea who was my ally and who was trying to throw me off of the island. Now I know I had no allies.

Make no mistake. This is NOT a woe-is- me post. I believe that things happen for a reason and maybe it's time for me to take my own design work seriously. We shall see.

YAH for branching out on your own! Whether it was on your timing or someone elses, you're out there and you're going to do great things!

I'm excited for you (and super jealous actually!)
