Day 43: Set is finished, so I am! 49 days to go!

First thing, which came to my mind right now is the magic of day 42 and 49 days to go! I am nearly half way through and there is lot going on, however lot more to come, I believe. I have finished the set today, so I am hoping to take the next few days to chill out and do some more research on how to get into the arts and looking for the right jobs. Personally I am just really happy I started this challenge, it is making me push myself so much. Exactly what I needed to do so for ages.

Today I managed to finish the set and do a bit of detailing on last three prison doors. I know  promised to take picture, but there was so much to think about, when I was packing up my tools, that I only just realized half way through the bike ride home that I forgot. Well you just have to wait and see. I got tickets to go and see the show tomorrow, so I am really looking forward to it. As I said yesterday, had few sneaky peaks and looks very exciting. I could have watched the dress rehearsal, but I thought I will give it a go on the opening night, so I can dress up and swap those painting dungarees for little black dress and enjoy myself with friends I invited. I was planning to do some more work this afternoon, but I felt little tired, so I went to have a nap and I woke four hours later. So I guess I cannot call it a nap anymore..:-) I caught up with few friends on the phone, now writing this and can’t see myself doing much more this evening as I still feel pretty shattered.  So back tomorrow, most likely updating you on the show.

Day 18: Exciting arty news! 74 days to go!

 

Kat doodles about life:

 

So today I went to work in the kitchen as usual. At the school. I have not been there since last week, because I went to different places to work and I had time off. But the day has turned out in a completely different way, than it normally does. I bumped into an art tutor I never see around, first thing in the morning, before I even walked into a kitchen. She was very excited about the meeting later on with a head of art department I had scheduled. Then I bumped into her again and within minutes later I saw the head of art himself, again who was excited to see me. How lovely I thought to myself! Then I saw drama teacher, who was guarding the pupils during my theatre design lectures in the past. And she said : ‘Ooh the head of drama was talking about you being involved in our next show. ‘ Minutes later I am meeting him and we are arranging for me to come up and pick up the selected cd with music of Nick Cave used for their new upcoming show. So I agree and we talk about swapping e-mails with ideas and other information. Gosh that felt like day in the office but with the difference of me pushing jugs of water around the dining hall. So after work, I quickly grabbed lunch, run into the theatre picking the cd, then I met the technician, who builds their sets, so we scheduled another meeting for next week and then I run into art department for a meeting about workshop. I have been asked to teach four sessions with year 9, ending with fashion show at the end of the term. That all means making costumes, shopping in scrapstore and genuinely going to have lot of fun. Afterwards I had a chat with the head of art again and told him about my two ideas and asking him about how to create the proposals for it and who to talk to. He was very excited and very supportive. It only gets to show that if you want to make something works, you have to get it out there, speak to people and make it happen.

 

So I thought “What a brilliant day! “. Then I got home and there was a parcel ticket that there is a delivery waiting for me at the local post office. It is the Swiss chocolate I got as a Thank you, when doing the Sports themed poster for a party in Zurich. How fantastic!!! The day cannot get any better. Well it could, but I do not think my boss will suddenly text, I am giving you night of work, paid. So I better go and write all those e-mails and schedule in all the designing for this weekend.

I hope you had a wonderful Friday yourself, have a lovely evening. Kat xx
