I've been pretty damn lucky over the past couple weeks to get a crazy amount of support from friends and family -- and readers -- about my job ending. One conspicuous detail I neglected to mention when I posted about it last week is that when I blew out the candles on my birthday cake two weeks ago, I kind of wished to no longer need to work 9-5 in an office. HA! My deepest apologies to the roughly half of the employees in my building who got axed in the course of my inadvertently controlling the universe.
Just kidding, obviously, because it's still a shitshow on many levels for many people, all of whom will ultimately better off, however, with an employer who appreciates their value. For my own part, I'm pretty sure what I really want is to do more of the stuff I liked about my current job -- writing reviews and features, writing and appearing in videos, writing, writing, writing. I don't want to go to law school, I'd rather just keep singing in bands than become a daylight-hours music teacher or something, and while I still might consider legitimizing my nutritional education with some sort of certificate, there's currently no governing professional organization dictating any standards whatsoever for the term "Certified Nutritionist," so I might as well just use it now. Just kidding. Sort of.
That does bring me to my next topic though. I got some comments from readers who claim they would be happy with me running a vegan/healthy lifestyle blog. Do I really need to run a whole separate blog with a whole separate RSS feed for that? Could I not just increase the vegan content here? The answer may very well be a polite "hell no," but I'd need to hear that in order to not otherwise commence testing the waters by just posting more food stuff here. I mean, I know this blog is called "Dressed Up Like a Lady," and it's ostensibly a fashion blog, but I started it six years ago and gosh, kind of a lot's happened since then. As it is, this blog is a catchall for anything I want to post about, I'd be happy to start a whole separate blog for food related stuff, but I think I'd need to experiment with generating that content a little bit first.
Okay anyway, on a totally unrelated note: the wonderful folks at Jord Wood Watches posted a little interview with MC and I today, and we feel like lucky bastards that they thought we were worth featuring. Click here to check it out.
