The time has come...
Today was my last day at the dealership, and I spent it sniffling between calls. Not out of sorrow, though that was implied by a couple smart mouthed coworkers, but because my body has thrown itself into sick mode. "Toyota service...sniff...how can I help you?...sniff."
When I was in college I had the perpetual habit of pushing myself through the semester until vacation came; at which point I would get sick, sleep excessively, and recover in time to spend a couple of days enjoying my vacation, then return to school to do it all again. I hope this is a habit I can break, because it sure makes time off less fun.
I am also moving back to Idyllwild, for now, so I can dedicate more time to finding a job in an artistic/archival/museum/anything to do with my degree job. I will be volunteering at the Idyllwild Area Museum and doing other normal Kelly things as well, but finding a good job is my main goal.
My departure from Toyota was met with several interesting reactions; many people asked "Do you really have to go?", one person asked "Can I go with you?", and I also received an offer to transfer to the advertising department as a designer. The last one I might have considered if I had any experience with graphic design, I hardly think photo shop counts though. However, when it comes down to it, it was an amicable separation; they know I need to pursue what I'm interested in, and I know that they will be fine without me. Good bye Toyota, I wish you the best of luck.
