The universe stepped in and made the what's-next decision about my next step easier by offering me a temporary job (see previous post).  Good thing I didn’t spend money on a class just yet. I’m a fit assistant in apparel development at the place where I interned last fall when we first moved here.  The work is slow so far, but I have to start from the beginning, so I’m doing my best to embrace it and to learn. I’m all ears while I’m there, trying to unlock the mystery of how clothes really get made.

I think at the end of the month I will find out if they can use me in an ongoing way. It’s nice to get paid for stuff I did for free last fall, and it makes me glad I followed my instincts this time.
