It's been a few weeks since my last post and I am quickly realizing how much this blog actually helps my mental health, art practice, and my ability to focus on the present moment. I find that when I am in my head too much, the thoughts stack up on each other and it becomes foggy. It tends to turn into a big ol' pile of mush, thought mush.
Yesterday I edited my webpage to have all of my skills and ability up "for hire." I am able to do a variety of "things" but just needed a way to let people know that. It's like an active resume/CV with buttons and activity and examples. I was having a hell of a time finding a job that I enjoyed. One that pertained to what I truly wanted to do. I have the ability to run my own business, organize my time, communicate effectively...why couldn't I find a job? I looked internally for the answer. I believe in my skill set and that I can do anything I set my mind to. Why not harness that energy and put myself out there? Well, here we are. Lets see where this takes me! I hope I get some odd weird jobs and some that I can learn from!
I am also going to start diving into the Skillshare world and become a teacher! I think it would be a good way to practice for teaching in a classroom setting. I am going to try to use it as a passive source of income to supplement my art practice (and to pay for the van). I'm going to try all avenues, hell, I'll come to your house and make pie if you pay me. Need someone to clean your pool? Sure I can do that.
Meh, my brain is scattered today. I might do a second post later ...
