There have been so many changes career wise with not just me but with my friends around me. Even though it is scary to not know where you are going to work next or if you can find a stable job that will pay you every month. I have chosen to take the leap and believe in myself again!
My first job was at a coffee shop in Japan. After that even though my dad didn’t think I could do it I conquered my fears and made a leap to try TV and I was one of the first “half/ha-fu talents” in Japan. Found out I didn’t like the people who ran the industry and came to LA to pursue my love for fashion. After two years for working in an office and learning the in’s and outs of designing and doing full production in Los Angeles I quit and started my own line…a few lines actually. The third one AHNIIMURA probably did the best if we are going off of sales and celebrity sightings wearing our tee’s. But then my partner and I decided to go our own ways and that was that. I have been freelancing on my own since then. As much as I would like to think I was working half time for myself, I wasn’t. I was freelancing under contract for one company and now they have decided they want to cut my job in half….. That’s when I panicked for a minute (new mom, new baby. no way I can find a full time or even part time job right now) and then thought… I got this.
This is the universe kicking my butt into action and telling me to do what I REALLY want to do! And so I am going to try.
I have been a mom for two months now and am hoping I will find more time (fingers crossed while all other moms are smirking at me thinking “it’s not possible”) to be able to work on what I want to do which is be a real content creator on YouTube/Blogger. Work on my Etsy shop creating paper goods. Wether that be cards, stationary or my recent love of planner stickers!! Eventually I would love to have a store AND have a small production company. I really do enjoy creating video’s and would love to work behind the camera and create cool videos for other companies!
I know there is a ways to go on my dream’s but I am going to believe in myself as much as I believe in my friends. I believe in all of you!
It has been a process and I don’t know if it will ever become the “pinterest dream room” that I think of…but its a working progress. Since my newborn is still 2 months and sleeping in our room.. ehem our bed. We haven’t used the nursery for sleeping reasons BUT we are in there a lot! We change him, play with him, rock him all in that tiny room! I made a quick video of a tour of his “adventure/woodland theme” room.
