Recently, I've been transitioning from one phase of my life to another. This is the only topic I've been dying to write about because it's been on my mind a lot tonight. Why? Because today was my last day as an American Apparel sales associate.
A lot of you might be thinking "why?" (or maybe not, I don't know). But here is the answer before I start talking a little bit about my recent encounters and thoughts on phases...
I voluntarily left the company because I need to focus on school right now. I found having set time that I had to be at work was getting to be unmanageable, especially when I started my full schedule of classes this month. So that is the truth of it. I am very sad about leaving, but at the same time, I look forward to having a bit more free time. With that free time, I'll get to hang out with my friends more, but also improve my blog.
So there it is. And now: Phases.
I was at American Apparel for 4 months and I learned so much in the process. It was my first job, and in it, I found a place where I belonged. Now, I take that knowledge I gained into the next phase of my life which has officially started today. Because where one journey ends, another begins. We are all on a constant quest for something, and whether that quest changes frequently or not, we are bound to find that something eventually.
The phase I'm heading into will consist of making time to be a Senior: which includes friends, family, and school work. It will also provide me with the opportunity to become a better fashion blogger, and blogger in general. It'll allow me to explore more passions before going off to college next year. And finally, I will be able to further develop a new "project" I've been working on.
I've learned to embrace phases throughout my life because I've gone through a lot of them... even if they were minor. But now, I find my life experiences are more significant. It's difficult at first to move onto another life phase, but it gets easier, and you learn so much every time.
