So, many of you have heard the news. Yep, Square Pictures is closing its doors on March 29th. This means K is looking for a new job, and it’s most likely going to be back on the mainland. I’ve spent almost two years on the island of Oahu, and K’s been here about three and a half years. Time to say Aloha to Kailua, but we’re not exactly sure when and where just yet. We need to get out butts out there and see there and see the rest of the islands, if we can, before we go. There’s just so much to do in the meantime.
Everyone at the office seems pretty bummed about the whole thing. Since I do the work of like 4 people (okay, I may be exaggerating), it’ll be hard to find someone to take my position. That, and I’ve made a lot of good friends here. Hey, anyone looking for a job in Hawaii for a large publishing company? 😀 And no, they won’t pay for relocation, so much for dreams.
We are most likely going to move somewhere around Southern California, since that’s where most of the prospective jobs are in the film biz. I’d really love to be living back in the Bay Area, and this possibility is not ruled out. I’m thinking I may not get another nine-to-five job unless it’s really really appealing and pays well. I am considering going back to school, and definitely looking into at least refining my skills and learning more in New Media. I am even considering culinary school, maybe learn to be a pastry chef since I have earned a love of cooking and baking. So maybe I’ll freelance design part or full time while trying to figure this out. So yeah, a lot on my mind… wish me luck!
