Welcome to my journal!
."So... how's your life?"
Hum, it's on hold at the moment. That's why I'm here.
I came to the conclusion that I only really come here when I feel like my life is on hold or when my art has hit the rock bottom state of non-creation. It's like this website attracts me at those times when I'm non-productive, like saying in big letters "FIX ME".
So the news about DA being bought by WIX has actually given me a glimmer of hope for this website, even though we know close to nothing so far, but hey, change has to be better than staying stale right? And looking at my previous journal, that has been stale and salty for way too long - not that I've changed my feelings about what I said, I still oppose and refuse to buy Core (my comments HERE
, display the why perfectly).
So, it's time to change that. Get rid of all the negativity in my front page and make it more presentable. Will make do with the non-Core resources at hand (and believe me there are a lot of them, check UszatyArbuz
gallery) and will try and make my front page more my own. Maybe even create a few resources myself. That would be neat.
So what have I been doing with my life? Well despite being on hold now, and the lack of artistic creation, I have to say the last year was full of self-growth. I had a job opportunity in the fashion retail market that I never imagine I would, thanks to that one Uni homework in Fashion Design 15 years ago. Who would have guessed that all that stress would pay off decades later, even though in a far different direction than my master degree? This job did a lot for my confidence and perspective of life which I so desperately needed. I still love architecture, but times and market change and if that doesn't give me job opportunities, then it's not meant to be. The downside of the said job is the busy schedule that it came with that left me no time nor energy for art.
The big upside is that it provided me with the funds to take care of my wedding for this year AND get a cat!
I am now a mommy to this beautiful, adorable black boy that you see here. His name is Anubis and he just melts my heart. And he's the other reason why my art is non existent at the moment, even though I have time now, in that, he's always on top of me AND my keyboard.
Cute and distracting, this kid is! But well, time to overcome all of that and get productive, starting by changing this journal into something more eye pleasing! I still have a lot of old pieces that I want to post and hopefully that drive recovery will work!! Fingers crossed that I won't lose track of of my objectives!!
