There are pivotal moments in your life when you just need to take a step back and reflect. For me this is one of those moments. When Marco and I moved to LA 5 years ago it was during the recession/writers strike. To say jobs were few and far between was an understatement. I signed up with a temp agency in Burbank and was assigned the most random jobs. My breaking point was working at a scrap metal company answering phones. I remember at lunch going to my car and crying to my mom. I wanted to go home, but knew how much M and I needed the $40 I would make that afternoon for groceries. After about 6 months of working like this I finally got a call to temp at Guess. Of course I jumped at the chance and 4 years later I was taking another leap of faith to come to T0MS.
This week is my one year anniversary and I am celebrating by receiving a promotion. I am the new Executive Assistant to the President. Pinch me please. It doesn’t seem real, but I am so beyond grateful for the new challenge.
