This week marks one year since quitting my 9 - 5 job. There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s been the most intense year of my life, experiencing some of the highest highs and lowest lows I’ve ever felt. I’ve learned so much about myself this year and eventually landed among a little family of people at Precious Plastic doing what feels like the work of my life. Life is beautiful, exhilarating, and difficult - sometimes all at the same time.
