I’ve been on the job hunt for a few months now, and not even one place has called me back. I don’t know what it is… My lack of experience? That’s the only thing I can think of right now, but let me tell you, it sucks. I feel like a failure.
So I’ve decided to do what any other person would do: open my own Etsy shop! I’ve loved Etsy forever, and it just occurred to me that I could make my own job. I can make things that I enjoy making and sell them as a job. It’s pretty ingenious if I do say so myself.
I’m just scared that I’ll lose interest with it, like I did with this blog. I am a seriously uncommitted person. Not that I am as a person, I guess, but just that I have so many interests and so many things that I want to do that I always flit from one project to the next, but I never stop to focus on one. No matter how hard I tell myself that I need to change this, I just can’t. It’s been a part of me forever.
In terms of thrifting and shopping and fashion, I made an entry for a YouTube competition where we needed to upcycle a piece of clothing. I didn’t win, unfortunately, but the experience was great. If you feel like it, check it out! I thought the finished product was pretty cool, and it’s a little different than just bleaching a jean jacket or turning a t-shirt into a tank top.
I’ve been into fashion illustration lately, and it’s what I’ve decided I want to pursue. I love drawing, I always have, and I love fashion. So why not merge the two? I just have to develop a unique style and draw even more. Speaking of which, I should go do my art project.
Until the next time I decide to write on this blog,
