I’ve been on a little blogging break this past week, and it feels like it helped. It was nice to not worry about taking pictures in the freezing cold and let my email inbox pile up. Of course, by the end of the week, I found myself missing all of it, so here I am! To be perfectly honest, I was starting to seriously consider shutting down Mox and Socks, but it seems all I needed was some time to step back and focus on other things.
What other things? Well, it’s mostly one other thing: I’m back in the job market. I won’t go into it, but I’ve been unhappy at work for a long time, and something happened that made me realize I need to move on to something better. It’s been a while since I’ve looked for a job, but believe me, I did not forget how daunting it is. That said, if you know of any job openings for a writer/layout artist/jack-of-all-trades in Chicago, let me know!!
Anyway, on a lighter note, I actually had a ton of fun shooting these pictures, even though it was probably about 20 degrees at the time. The sun was warm, and I found a brand new location that I’m super excited about. I’m standing on a small stage in a recently-renovated park, and I hope to get as much use out of it as possible before the warmer months are here and other people want to use it!
