Now say… “Merry Christmas!”

Hello Hello!

Today is finally the day I can share with you all, what I’ve been working on! Since the 30th AugustΒ (I know… 3-4 months prior to Christmas…)Β I’ve been working on a Christmas project. This is my first serious project outside of university, that I’ve self funded, and worked on to get my portfolio out into the world.

Diary of a Freelancer – New Beginnings, Entry 4.

Hello again!

Can I just squeal over the fact that OCTOBER IS HERE?! *Squeal!*Β Ahh, October. How I love thee.

No but seriously, I love October, and also December, but October definitely is my favourite month of the year. It’s because every year, it’s the start of some new bonding/re-bonding, fresh starts and another year of learning… Well… it was… now I’m a graduate…

That last part hits me hard. I’ll be honest, and I shan’t go on and on about it, but I’ve always known that I thrive off other people. I need a group/collective of people to surround myself with, as it gets my creativity and mind going. Alas, here I am in my own room working on a project…unsure as to how to meet new people.

I have been thinking about going a Netball team, or maybe even looking for a new job. Currently, I’m a freelancer (which I’d like to pursue with) but I also want to be around like minded people. That being said, I think I need to push on into the world of performance, or at least, be in the company of creative people. Whether they’re videographers or set designers, I need that sense of creativity in my life. Have I said creative a few too many times?

Speaking of creativity (I guess that’s word of the post today!), I mentioned last week how I’ve finished one costume out of four, and guess what… I’m nearly done with my second one! It’s going really well to be honest, I’m quite happy – I didn’t think I’d feel as in control of this project as much as I am, but I guess I’ve given myself a LOT of time to complete it. Hopefully it all works out and goes to plan!

I have to admit, I am glad I’m keeping myself busy. I am afraid, don’t get me wrong. Like, what comes to mind often is the same sentence probably a lot of people feel “What if this doesn’t work out? What if it goes wrong?” And though a little voice keeps saying this, I always give kudos to myself. Why? Well, if I don’t try, and I just allow this little voice to dictate how I push on in life, then I will always be thinking “But I have so many ideas… what if they’re that ONE idea?”

If you ever feel afraid of something, but you know deep down that if you don’t try, you’ll feel defeated, then go for it. Don’t ever look back in life thinking “What if I had made the plunge? What if it hadn’t gone wrong?” I look back on my university experience and I do regret the fact I let that little voice dictate decisions I made. As a freelancer, I won’t let myself go through feeling that way when I’m older…if I get to live that old!

Ohh, an exciting thing happened last week! I met up with some old uni friends, for one of their birthdays, and boy was it such a good day. My friend and I walked all around Central London and then headed to Zizi’s where we enjoyed a really nice LOOOOONG catch up. Once the meal was over, we waved our friend off on her train, and headed our separate ways. It was so nice to be back with my friends again. That’s what I need! I need people, like them, in my life! My target is to meet new people before the end of the year. Yeah, 3 months to go…it’s not a hard target, it’s achievable… *she says with high hopes!*

Anyways, I would love to connect with you guys on here! Please comment so we can get to know one another, I KNOW! Question of the post: What is your latest target?

Ciao for now!
