Yesterday was officially my last day as Children’s Book Publicist at Raincoast Books. I am starting my new life being creatively fulfilled each and every day through my writing and West Coast Creative Company.
My last day came with little fanfare, I think most people had forgotten that it was technically my last day. I had a month’s worth of vacation saved up so my last day in the office was on June 30th. Knowing that it was my last day was slightly terrifying (goodbye regular pay cheque twice a month), incredibly inspiring (I can’t believe how far I have come in just 1 month and the amazing, talented women who I am starting to work with) and a pinch nostalgic (goodbye beautiful books, farewell smell of paper fresh off the printing press, see you soon good friends I’ve made along the way.)
I was taking a moment to reflect on the ending of one chapter of my life and the beginning of another, when my door rang. It was our friendly UPS driver with a package for me. A huge smile came across my face and I once again realized that every single action I have taken over the past 16 years of adulthood has brought me to where I am today.
