normally, i would never think to call a monday happy, but this one really was. it was my first day of work at this brand new job that i'm kind of super excited about. it's my first "real" job that i can actually afford to live off of in this crazy expensive city, and it falls within the realm of my dream career. being an assistant designer means so many things to me. back when i was tucked into the woods of new hampshire studying business, i remember dreaming of this day. did i apply to a design school? yes. did i apply for design? no. did i graduate with a degree in fashion? yes. did i graduate with a degree in fashion design? no. was design my biggest dream? yes. did i think i could do it? no. but here i am. i didn't give up. that moment when someone or something or even y o u tell yourself you can't, you need to let that propel and fuel you. you're destined for so much greatness, so many big and unbelievable things, if you just believe it. and sometimes fear is the best thing to channel into success.
i know my responsibilities aren't exactly that of jenna lyon, but you always have to start somewhere. and i'm incredibly happy to start right here. right now. today. monday. i'm a designer?! i'm a designer. woah. meg, you did it.
oh, and the fact that this little blog was featured on pubslush today makes it a very happy monday. (thank you, nicole!)
follow your dreams. don't look back. don't let anyone tell you you can't.
