Like radio silence, even when there is very little information being tossed around, things are always moving and silently progressing. It's obviously been awhile since my last post, and there finally has been some forward progress made. I've been working hard in preparing an updated portfolio, chock full of Photoshop photo-correcting (yes, I actually can learn new things!) and Illustrator type-setting samples. I've been studying, practicing, printing, and keeping busy. All of this work has been produced in the hopes of being offered a Production Design position at a rather large and well-known company in the Twin Cities. And I've been offered the position. ...yup. I filled out the paperwork online tonight, and now have to figure out a way to tell my boss tomorrow that after five years at my current job, I have to move on. I don't want to burn any bridges along the way, as (most of) the time I had spent there was pretty great. I'm also a little unsure of the long-term prospects of the new position, so I'm really hoping that if worst comes to worst, I'll have something to fall back on. This is definitely one of the biggest risks I have taken in my life. Since moving out to Minnesota, I haven't had much to fall back on, so this could be super, super risky. Now it just comes down to me being able to prove my worth to the company and get hired on as a regular full-time staff member. But really, what fun is life without a little risk? I think it's time that I step outside of my little comfort zone and try something new. I just hope it pans out, and can lead to something really great. I guess we'll have to see!
