After 3 months of commuting to Hollywood, crafting my heart out, and being a part of Joy’s awesome team, my Oh Joy internship ended this past Friday. I almost still can’t believe that all of this even happened– I’ve admired Joy’s work and brand for years (and her blog has always been my favorite!), so to work alongside her has been a dream. Though I’ll miss being in such a creative space with a million ideas coming to fruition at any given point, I honestly think I’m ready to move on.
I’m approaching the one year mark for having quit my full-time OT job, and I’m starting to feel a little restless. As much fun as it’s been exploring my creative passions these past 10 months, I’m doing some serious thinking to figure out what the next step is. I’m still at my OT clinic part-time and doing events/weddings on the side, but it may be time for another change. Ohhhh boy.
Anyway, my last day at Oh Joy was full of good food, fun, and laughter (as is often the case in her studio). One of her assistants had a birthday, so we ate lunch at the Ace Hotel in DTLA (the grilled cheese was to die for), devoured the infamous Lady M mille crepe cake (also to die for) back at the studio, and had Justin Timberlake blasting all day. Of course, we stopped for a quick photo shoot (below) when all of us, minus Joy, realized we were wearing outfits with back-cutouts. 🙂
Leaving something good behind is always bittersweet. But I’m ready to move forward, so I’m excited to see what lies ahead in this crazy life of mine.
Happy Monday, friends.
