it feels fitting to leave behind an old LJ and start something fresh and new.
i'm jules, and i'm excited to start the rest of my life.
i tried to get into my old LJ account and it's probably best left for dead — my last entry was when i was 18 years old. which is so hilariously cute to me, and probably best that i don't layer on my 30 year old self on top of entries that are over 12 years old. it's best to start anew.
i am an excitable, sensitive, emotional artist trying to move on from a career that takes so much and gives so little. i am finally at a point in my life that i feel ready to cut out what doesn't serve me. my dear friend calls it "curating your thirties" and i just feel SO READY to do that.
it's exciting to be moving forward, and leaving behind a career. i'll be able to say "i used to work there" instead of having to bring it up every time someone asks me "what do you do?"
i think i am almost a little wary of what i'll do once i feel like i have a real opportunity to be mentally healthy. what will that look like? what creative projects will i have room for? what personal growth will i be able to do? it feels a little overwhelming in an absolutely wonderful way.
i'm excited to share what exactly this opportunity looks like when it's a done deal. now, i have to worry about finishing out this contract and what double time will look like for a little while.
