Before I hit 30…
I want to work for a company I truly believe in.
I know. You’re thinking “what does her goal have to do with the El Paso-iconic smoke stack being demolished?” Two things actually:
1) Everything has a life cycle
2) Although you may not want to see something go, sometimes it’s necessary in order for positive change to occur.
In the case of the 800-ft Asarco stack that toppled to the ground this weekend after standing aside Interstate-10 for 50 years, it wasn’t the hardest thing I’ve ever had to mentally let go of. It was an uncomfortable, saddening thought though, as is the thought of my plan to leave Texas permanently.
I’m ready to take the step from freelance to full-time, and when I land a graphic design job somewhere, I most definitely want it to be outside of Texas. It hurts to think of leaving Austin permanently, and moving farther away from my family, but it’s something I need to do to finally feel at peace with myself (me and myself have been at war since college because I never feel like I was challenging myself enough.)
Today’s challenge: Begin updating my resume so it’s ready to send out to employers.
Onward and outward! No looking back ;)
Watch the demolition of El Paso’s City Hall that took place over the weekend. A new AAA ballpark will be built in its place as part of the city’s $43 million commitment to improve quality of life, as reported by The Atlantic.
The city also demolished on Saturday morning a pair of towering smokestacks, long part of a 126-year-old copper smelting site in West-Central El Paso. “This is like demolition weekend,” [Mayor Joyce] Wilson says.
