This is officially my 101st post on this blog, which is insane and exciting and somewhat shocking actually. I didn’t even realize I had written so much. I’ve had this blog for about two or three years now and I look forward to being able to share more and more with it. It’s become a great platform for showing off my work and has given me a bunch of skills that I find myself referencing in tons of applications recently. THANKS, WORDPRESS! ❤
On top of all this excitement, I also want to use this post to freak out a little because for the first time in my life, I am being paid to write! TO ALL THE PEOPLE MOCKED ME FOR BEING A CREATIVE WRITING MAJOR AND FOR QUITTING MY JOB TO FREELANCE FULL-TIME — HAAAAHAHA! This feels AMAZING. I’m in a constant state of bliss that I finally get to do work that I absolutely love all of the time. I really enjoy freelancing and all the perks that come with it. And while I’m not trying to minimize the cons — there are cons still, but I feel I’m handling them to the best of my ability — I think this is the kind of lifestyle for me. Here’s two big pats of the back for me: One for 101 posts and another for going out of my comfort zone to find happiness and satisfaction in parts of my life where I wasn’t feeling fulfilled. This is the best decision I’ve made in a while and I’m really glad I prepared for it then committed to it.
