update.


Well, I suppose it’s time for an update on my life, huh?
Apparently more people than I knew read this, because after my last post I got lots of emails, facebook messages, and phone calls from people with suggestions for jobs for me to check out, people to email, and overall tips. 
This is great!  Keep them coming, my friends!
 They say finding a job these days is all about who you know, so any connection can help!  Even if you are not sure if it would help, feel free to email me (megan.schreurs@gmail.com).  If you want to pass on my resume or portfolio to someone who might have a job, feel free to give them my website (www.meganschreurs.com) – it has everything they will need to see my work, view my portfolio, and contact me.  But if you do pass it on to anyone, please just drop me an email and let me know.
If you are wondering what type of job I’m looking for, here is that info:  I’m looking for a position as a Graphic Desginer, doing mostly print work.  I don’t have much experience with web design, coding, or flash, so unfortunately I am unable to do that.  I am willing to go anywhere.  Seriously, anywhere.  I would love to be in a big city, but small towns are cool too.  I’ve been applying everywhere from Seattle, to California, to New Mexico, Minneapolis, Dallas, Chicago, Connecticut, Boston – and I get excited about all of the possibilities.  There is really no where that I can’t see myself living (except Hugo, OK)

For now, I am planning on substitute teaching in the elementary school where my mom teaches.  Crazy, right?  I spent nearly half of my college career as an education major and then changed my major because I decided that’s not what I wanted to do, and now I’m going back to it?  No, it’s not what I really want to do.  But, it’s not that I didn’t enjoy teaching because I did, just not as much as designing!  I’m not giving up on that dream.  I’m just accepting that it’s going to take some time. 
In Oklahoma, you just have to have a high school diploma to sub and with my mom being a teaching and having those connections, I didn’t even really have to apply.  And if the school here in town doesn’t keep me busy enough, there are some others nearby that I can call too.  For right now, it seems like a good opportunity to make some money, do something to get out of the house and feel like I’m making a difference.  It’s something that I can do a couple of days a week and still have time to put plenty into the job search.  And this way, I can get some money saved up so when I do get a job, I’ll have money to set up an apartment and everything.

Yes, Hugo is the last place on the planet that I want to be right now.  But it’s where I am.  And for some unknown reason, God doesn’t seem to want me to leave right now.  I’m trying to be okay with that. 


Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:4-7

His peace.  It’s the only thing keeping me going some days.  Thank you, Jesus, for a peace that passes all understanding.
