I’ve been a little torn about blog posting these past two weeks. I wasn’t sure of my position on TFQ, new work opportunities, and there also seemed to be fewer hours in the day. I felt a lot of exhaustion from being online all day, so by the end of it, I was wiped out and didn’t want to see anyone or write anything — even my daily journal was blank.
I guess it’s time to break it to you all: The Freelancing Quill is no longer my full-time job.
TFQ is still here; I’m not shutting this business down. It’s taken a backseat since I started working full-time at a new company. This is a decision that I came to effortlessly, and I surprised myself with how quickly I decided to pivot.
My career pivot
Things I learned from this pivot:
🌱 I have craved working with a team since I established TFQ in 2021, and now I finally get to
🌱 I spread myself too thin as a solopreneur and caused myself a lot of burnout
🌱 I can return to my academic passion projects with more energy and enthusiasm
🌱 I can be selective about the kind of clients I work with
🌱 I am capable of change.
Personally, I was always excited to be 27. My birthday couldn’t come fast enough! I felt I would go on many adventures this year, and I’m grateful to the universe for preparing me for this. The force is strong with this year 😁 I’ve wrapped up my last projects and now embark on this new adventure with gratitude, purpose, and pride.
So, how will TFQ still be present in this world?
🖋️ The TFQ blog will continue with weekly posts
📚 The TFQ Book Club will run every month
🎓 I’ll be working on exciting academic projects and sharing them with you all.

To my cheerleaders, thank you for supporting me in all your wonderful ways! I couldn't have come this far without you there to drive me to places, bounce ideas off of, and remind me to eat. I am steady because you are beside me 🙆🏾♀️💛
