I incorporated myself last November with the intention that I could still freelance for the company I was about to leave. However, the company was not making a profit and with the turn of events (employee exodus), it was just not an option. Who knew things could change so fast in a few weeks. After I left, I placed an ad on Kijiji to do freelance (simple) graphic design. I didn’t get a single email. The market was too saturated with the unemployed and with oil prices tanking, Calgary was in layoff season again.
Then I decided it was time for me to do something I wanted to do for a while, become certified to teach yoga. At first I looked at India since it was the birthplace of yoga and the course was slightly cheaper. But on the other hand, my fiancé and I were planning to visit my family in Malaysia during the Chinese New Year break in Malaysia. So a few pillow talk and Google sessions later, we decided on Thailand since it’s close to Malaysia and that would save me some much needed moola. I would stay on and travel with him and then we fly home. And so with the new plan, I was absent for about 2 months, and now I’m back in Canada and thinking about what to do with myself.
Of course I have a lot of things on the go, working on teaching yoga for one, my art and music, and a lot of other things that take the mental energy out of me.
So, today I decided, I need a break for my brain from time to time and surfing the internet or watching Netflix, I need some hands on work. And so today, I went and got me some fabric. My hands on work will be sewing. And when I got home, I sat down and a whole bunch of ideas came splattering (yes, splattering) into my brain thing and now I’m very excited, maybe more than I need to be, but I can’t wait to show you what I’m working on! It will take a while, but you’ll be the first to know!
