This week I decided to dive headfirst into my creative journey, and sign up for fashion design school. On it’s own it doesn’t seem crazy, but I am still going to be working fulltime (or at least close) around classes.
The school is only a 10 minute walk away from my office, my work is flexible, and my boss is happy that I can make it work.
Given my history of working hard and long hours, the school is happy that I can around the 9 days I will be out of the country for 10X Growth Con, and that I will own the responsibility to catch up on anything I have missed.
I am SO INCREDIBLY excited to be starting classes! There is also a little tinge of fear that I won’t have enough of the basic knowledge to start off with, and regret that I haven’t spent more of my spare time developing my creative skills… but I know that none of this is productive, and I just have to use that fear to drive me harder to learn.
Classes already started last week, so I’m actually missing 3 weeks of classes, and will already be starting behind, but I know I can do it! I’ve already picked up all my art supplies (which terrify me because my drawing skills, combined with a problem with perfection), and I’m rearing to get started on mastering the fears that hold me back from everything that is exciting and wonderful!
