Changing jobs can be stressful. It has happened to me a couple of times in my career. It is a good, natural progression in life – moving on from one place to another, but it is still very hard. The whole – having to get a feel for a new place/testing the waters and starting over deal can be really nervewracking. At the same time, it can be very exciting. But now in my job, I am comfortable and comfortable can be a good thing as long as you are learning new things and are satisfied for the most part, but I find that my position at D-art is incredibly limiting…I can’t move up or come up with designs that are outside the box. I have been doing my best and I think I have improved overall the quality of work that has been coming out of there lately (before it was ok, but just ok)…I guess I have set somekind of a standard and that is nice. It is nice to know that I am looked to for a good design when it is needed. I have had the opportunity to do a wide variety of things to. But, I can’t keep working there. It is a political, uninspired in general place. You would think a place that sells crafts would have some character, but it doesn’t. It is just stale. I guess I don’t want to become stale with it. I think I have some def. talent, but it needs to still be nurtured and encouraged and I need to be around people who are also talented and understand design issues. The people are great at D-art, and they are the best thing about the place, but people alone can’t keep you somewhere. I have to look out for myself and my best interests and being in Stanford is not helping me make steps forward in my life. Ugh. I am not a fan of change. It is so scary, but having done it before, I know that I can do it.
