Grand scheme of things…
It has been a while since my last post and a lot as happened! Hopefully it’ll all fit into my brain blender so I can serve my adoring followers a wonderful glass of life smoothie. Beware, it’s a big cup.
Ackhemhemhem - (that’s sound of me clearing my throat).
So I almost lost my job - well, kind of. Before the New Year, Final Fantasy’s prelude would wake me up about 6am and I’d struggle to will myself out of bed. After 13 and a half hours of red eyed tea highs, I’d be driving back to my house at Luton, ready for bed the minute I get through the door. Fast forward to the 4th of Jan, to a staff meeting - a short one, as far as staff meetings go, in which everyone would lose their job due to a some outstanding payments not going through and a lawsuit that says we’ll not get them. Our company goes into liquidation, my job with it.
Or at least that was how it seemed till my boss offered me a new job in a new company, based in Italy. Give it a month for them to sort out alternative offices and stuff. So I wait til a week ago, my phone rings to let me know the offer is still there, and, for some reason I decline.
I don’t know why, it’s not like I hated the job, but it felt right at the time. So they email me offering new terms which I decline again, and they call me asking me to reconsider. Finally they say I can work from home for 2 months, and well, to be honest, that’s not so bad and I agree.
Here I am, sat tapping away my life. Again a Creative Illustrator. As round-about as it seems, I think the whole thing has forced me into a position where I have to consider what I want, or expect to be in the future.
And after some thought, I still haven’t a clue.
I’ll work it out eventually :).
