So it occurred to me today that I haven’t ever really introduced myself to the blogosphere-at-large. I mean, I know I have my little “I’m a 20-something yada, yada, yada…” About Me page, but just who am I really? Good question.
Well, turns out I am a 20-something yada, yada, yada, but I am also more. I am Shannon. I’m in my late mid-20s (he he), and I live in the bright and shiny state of Georgia. (Well, it’s usually bright and shiny. Today, not so much. I’m crossing my fingers for tomorrow, though!) I quit my day job recently (retail – eeeeyuuuuuck) to give my full attention to my Etsy shop, and now my blog. Creating and designing have always been my greatest passions, and it was time for me to pursue them fully. I have to say that I am loving every minute of it.
My workday is not the typical workday for your average American. And I am very grateful for it. I hate “the grind”, and I hope to never have to go back to it. I love the freedom to create, to work by my schedule, to share my true talents with others. I’m not even making any sort of substantial income at this yet, and yet it feels so much more fulfilling that any job I’ve ever held. I guess that’s because it’s not a job to me – it’s my passion.
I’ll stop before this gets too long and rambly. I just want to say “hi” to all of you out there, “thanks” to those of you who have welcomed me and who tune in to what I have to share, and “will you be my neighbor?” to those who I have yet to meet. 🙂
