There is something to be said for patience and resilience. The last year of working until 11:30 has not been a lot of fun, and there was a time it was necessary, but that is not the case now. My boyfriend got day shift over a month ago, and I’ve been biding my time until shift bid came around. This time my rank was high enough I got days, and honestly it could not come soon enough.
I am the kind of person who is at their creative best in the evening, and for the last year I’ve spent those hours at a desk doing tech support. Tuesday, day shift begins, which means that after 6:00 pm, I will be free to do whatever I want. This means more writing, it means making music again, and it means creating lots of neat stuff. I have been feeling creatively snuffed out, having my only truly useful hours of the day being before work –
this means if I started on a project I’d have to preemptively stop before I finished what I was doing or risk being late – and with sculpture and things related to it, it’s time sensitive stuff. Can’t leave something half made, because it will be ruined before I can finish it. Can’t leave polymer (when applicable) unbaked sitting on a table for 9+ hours.
So now, the journey begins. I will likely be using WordPress for my store, simply because I am already on here and it’s a bit more practical for a beginner like myself. It also means I have to start keeping receipts for supplies purchased, I have to open a business account pretty soon, and I will need to start settling on a store design.
Yikes. I’m really doing this.
