I promised you my “Anxiety” post next, and I still hold that promise very close to me. It’s coming, I swear. I just wanted to sit down with you over a lovely cup of coffee or tea (or your choice of beverage) and fill you in on my life lately.
I have been back into reading again. Oh, how I’ve missed reading. Although the books I read aren’t very thought provoking – at all – it’s always a pleasure diving into a world fill with fiction and literature.
“You Had Me at Hello” by Mhairi McFarlane is what I am reading in case you were curious. It is your typical romance, nearly predictable novel, but I enjoy it. Guilty as charged.
More excitingly, I have something so, so beyond thrilling to share with you!
On the 3rd of September, which was now over a month ago –holy cow –, I was contacted via Facebook asking if I do “photography”. I was hesitant at first because one, I did not know this person and two, I wouldn’t really classify myself as a “photographer”.
I don’t undertake photography classes, nor am I a professional by any means. And I said exactly that. To my absolute surprise they responded with “would you be interested in trying it out?” and of course by now I was freaking out and was immediately intrigued.
My first photography gig?
And yes it very much did turn out to be my first photography gig. For a 21st, but it was a start!
Leading up to the night I was obviously nervous but at the end of the night I was so happy with the results that I was so keen on my next gig (which will be at the end of this month or the beginning of the next month).
So let’s raise our glasses (or cups) to new beginnings and an exciting future ahead!
Cue the violins and sweet piano tunes, but I would not been able to do it without you. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your underlying support.
