From doing what I hate to doing what I love
Ok, so maybe I didn’t hate being an Elementary School Spanish teacher, but waking up extra early to answer e-mails before running to school and then coming home covered in chalk, just to walk right to my computer and start working the night shift, was not my ideal way of spending my first year of marriage. My poor husband would greet me at the door, super excited to see me (he was already a full-time wedding cinematographer), and I’d have to do my best to smile through the anxious thoughts over how long the hello would take because I knew the exponential rate that the editing pile was growing.
