For the past 2 years, I have been working in the corporate world after getting an undergraduate degree in business and graduating in 2010. It has been such an amazing experience and I have met so many wonderful people through my work. I am blessed to go to work each day knowing that I love who I work with and what I do. When I was choosing a major, I felt a lot of pressure. I had always heard that you were supposed to pick something "you were passionate about." Wow, so I am supposed to know what to do for the rest of my life at age 18?! Insanity! Nonetheless, I chose to pick Energy Management, a business degree, and went forth without looking back.
I loved my classes, my teachers, the friends I made and the doors my degree opened up. It wasn't until I already graduated college and was decorating my first apartment that I learned I truly loved interiors! I poured over floor plans and decor ideas, websites, and magazines for hours, while simply loving every minute of it. I didn't think too much about it until a year went by and I was still feeling a subtle, strange pull towards designing. My creative juices were overflowing and I had no place to put them! In fact, I have files upon files of inspiration photos I saved that spoke to me (before we had Pinterest I had to save hardcopies). My blog was finally created as a space to organize my thoughts pertaining to design. Needless to say, blogging about interiors and fashion with like-minded people is simply heaven for me.
I am excited to announce that after much prayer, contemplation, and research I have officially decided to pursue a second bachelor's degree- this time in Interior Design! I will be attending the Art Institute of Houston beginning in the next few months. Because I love my "other" job and need to fund my new decision, I will be attending design school on nights and weekends. Oh, I am SO excited! I think it's time to invest in some chic college outfits! Do people still dress up for class?
I will probably look like the biggest dork my first day. Oh well. Cheers to taking a leap of faith!
