In my previous post I described an uneasy situation in my life with a difficult choice that I had to make. I was sure that I got two options - to work a well paid full time job that leaves me no time for my artistic passions, or to quit the job and start learning drawing and painting. Time for a little update on that.
It appeared that I have more options than I first thought. A few days ago I almost got fired, because my boss was not satisfied with the work I did. So contract is cancelled, but they offered me a freelance job from home. I will basically do the same things that I did at the office, but they will pay me per article, which means the salary size will vary depending on the job that I have done through the month. The good thing is that I will work from home and will definitely have the space and time to do my art. Will see how it goes. If I still don’t have enough time to draw then I will eventually go back to my previous intention to quit the job, but if I manage to do some drawing exercises, then I guess I will keep this job. The point here is to take my time and choose wisely.
At this point I will keep myself away from rushed decisions, because in a situation like this I have to look around and see what other options I have. And there is definitely a better solution in this situation. Why having to choose between good income and art exercises when you can have both? I’m glad things happen this way, thanks God, there are good options. I must also show respect to these people giving me the chance to work with young and nice folks and get nice income, because, you know, this is still something and should be appreciated. And I have to say that it is a good thing to be thankful for what you already have, because that is the way to open the gate tor other good things to come into your life. I put myself in this situation and there is no one else to blame, but me. And I gotta use what I have and get things better.
I want to thank you all for your support. Thank you for being with me in this. I got contacted by people from the EVE community and they were happy to give me some encouraging words and advice. This made me very happy, you guys are the best.
