BIG news!

I’m quitting my job today.

Eek!

While I love working in research, and I still find the world of data fascinating, I’ve always had the hankering to do more than just research.

I love to ideate- what can we do with data? How can data impact ideas, especially creative ones? How could a company take an existing product iteration and make it even better? What if, what if, what if?

And I love to write, to express my curiosity.

So tomorrow I’m taking a leap of faith and taking the first step in pursuing my dreams of working in a more creative role.  Starting tomorrow, and for the next 6 weeks, I’ll be the new editorial intern at PSFK.

Editorial.

As in, get paid to share my written thoughts with the world. Goosebumps.

Intern.

I’m starting from scratch.  I’ll be making roughly 40% of what I currently make, and I’ll be at the very bottom of the totem-pole.  A perfect situation to make sure I take every last chance and make every moment count while I’m interning at PSFK.

6 weeks.

My internship is only for 6 weeks.  What happens after 6 weeks?  The short answer is,  I don’t know.

It’s the scariest- but more importantly, the most exciting- thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I know if I didn’t take this opportunity and take on a little risk, I’d always wonder, ‘what if?’.

I can’t wait to start this next chapter! Here’s to pursuing your dreams!

    Good for you! Something I’ve considered doing on many occasions but have never had the guts to do. You’re going to kick ass. ENJOY it!!

    Best of luck.  Take it from someone who is taking that same step you are (and just a few months into the process).  It’s scary at first, but a good kind of scary.
