Lion Heart spoon rest.
My little heart hasn't stopped beating out of my chest since this afternoon. After much thought and little to no preparation today I quit my job. I wasn't planning to but an e-mail came out which made me realize that Monica would need to fill out a transfer form if she was going to take my position and it's due tomorrow. I will still be working until June when school lets out but I let everyone (well 4 bosses but not the school) know today that I will not be coming back to the classroom after the summer break. (Of course if I totally panic and lose my nerve nothing is in paper yet. Still, saying out loud that I am starting a new path in life is the scariest thing I have ever had to do.) I am lucky enough to have supervisors who wished me a heartfelt good luck and let me know that they would hire me back if things didn't work out as planned, which I am not to naive to admit might happen. I hope not, but today I am feeling shaky and worried that I will not be able to pay the bills when the time comes. We are keeping it under wraps until I am positive but I couldn't help telling someone, and not too many people I know or work with actually read this blog so I think I'm safe. Don't tell, ok? Anyway, right now I could really use some words of encouragement so if you have some words of wisdom, make a living off your art or even if you are planning or want to too please let me know...I would love to hear from you!
