The decision has been made


Today was D-day.

Decision Day.  I had a deadline.  And, it wasn’t self-imposed.

No more hanging out in the middle.

So, last night, I finalized my decision (with the support of Mr. Serious, of course).

Today, was the last day to sign my contract or turn in a letter of resignation to the school.

Last night, I wrote my letter of resignation.

Today, I gave it to the principal and my department chair.

My last day of being a public school teacher is June 1st.

After June 1st?

Full-time graphic design with my company Krizzy Designs

Krizzy Designs

Where I do blog designs (both blogger and wordpress), blogger to wordpress conversions (thank you blogger for being down for several days), invitations, birth announcements, twitter pages, logos, business cards and more.  If you can dream it, I want to make it for you!

So, this is my dream.  I’m going to try and live my dream.

I thank you all for my support thus far, and I hope that I can help you out with your blogging and graphic design needs.

I’m looking forward to it.  I’m nervous…but I’m EXCITED!
