How’s it going? @MartynReah asked this a couple of days ago and I have to admit that it has been an interesting week. As a freelancer, I have several areas of interest, so, by extension, I have multiple employers. All on zero hours contracts too, so an interesting state of affairs. It does mean that I can have nothing in my diary, or I can have a very full period with a number of fast approaching deadlines. Being the person that I have become, I have to get things done early, so that they don’t pile up and make the inevitable last minute rush.
This week, January commitments have meant pulling together a number of presentations, to be sent ahead of the event for editing or putting into a corporate format. In between I have tried to keep up with blogging, as areas of interest have come to the fore and distilled themselves into a form capable of sharing. Has blogging become my new hobby? That may well be the reality, I have to admit.
My #teacher5aday resolution was to get out the art materials and start making pictures again after a bit of a lay-off. Apart from one evening, I have to admit failure this week, as work has taken precedence. I am wondering if freelance time is less easy to organise than a day determined by school hours? That will be in the forefront of my thinking over the next period, as I am determined to get a grip on how my time is used.
Making pictures, even badly, is relaxing and that is important. I am not down-hearted, yet…
It has been pleasing to see that others’ plans have been more successfully implemented.
