Today, the 8th of November 2012, I am feeling a little blue, and I dare say that there’s a perfectly good reason for it.
Yesterday, I was called to my work (I am still staying home from work, due to my ear operation a week ago), and got some bad news.
I was hired as a substitute for another teacher who had fallen ill, and we were to share the hours, so that she could slowly get back on track. But unfortunately this had an unfortunate effect on our students, because it can be difficult to learn from two teachers. So I have been resigned from work as of the end of November 2012.
This makes me rather sad, because I like the job very very much! But, I still have some projects with my “boss”, that we’re going to do in our spare time, so it’s not because I didn’t do a satisfying job, I’m pretty sure, but unfortunately in times of crisis, people have to go sometimes.
(I’ll put some random pictures in this post, so you can avert your eyes from my whining. :P)
So my technical and “crafting” pride haven’t been hurt, but I feel sad, because I am losing something good. I am going to miss my students very much – I was just learning how to teach in real life.. I might just do it again some day. Yay, for being positive and optimistic!
Well – the point is, that I am now in the situation where I need to figure out how to fund my life – apartment, cats, utility bills, food and all that jazz. I have a part time job in a fabric store, but it’s not enough. So In the following days I will try to figure out what to do.
My main idea is to really boost this tutorial site with PDF patterns (I have tons of ideas), and sell them. Or to become a tailor locally, but I somehow think that it would slowly kill my creativity to sew too much by other people’s demands, if you know what I mean. I am also considering opening my etsy shop again, so I could design stuff myself, and sell the goods.
I think there are many possibilities, but I just need a couple of days to figure it out.
The main subject is, that I should like to work from home – doing the things that I love. Pattern cutting, sewing, designing, taking photos and all that. So I will definitely be needing your help to share the love (not this particular post, perhaps.. I guess it’s not the best “first impression-post”).
Subscribe to my newsletter, like my facebook page, follow me on twitter, instagram, youtube, and tumblr, and share the stuff you like on facebook with your friends, or on your pinterest boards or any other sharing site of your choice.That would make me tons happy! :)
I promise I won’t whine like this very often – I just got a whole new life situation here. And I’m banking on that it will turn out for the best!
Do you have any idea what I could do? Have you been in my situation? It’s the first time in my life I’ve been fired, so I must admit I am a bit overwhelmed with feelings. That’s why I haven’t continued with my heart corset pattern, because I didn’t have the energy. It’ll come back soon enough, I’m sure.
Well – enough of this. :)
As some of you might have noticed on facebook, I just went through an ear operation last Wednesday. It went pretty well, although I’ve been dizzy since then and my tastebuds on the right side of my tongue have been weird – somehow turned off… But I think everything’s wearing off slowly – I got the gauze out of my ear yesterday (gooey stuff), and now I’m just waiting for my eardrum to heal up, then hopefully I can hear properly again. Right now it’s just noise and crackling, when I hear semi loud noises… but I guess it’s because the eardrum hasn’t healed up yet.
Anyhoo – it shouldn’t get any worse than now. So I’m keeping a positive mindset and being optimistic of my new situation.
Just give me a couple of days to recuperate, and I’ll be back on track giving you tons of holiday tutorials! :)
How’s your week so far? Any plans for the weekend?
