2018

I spent 2017 flinging Cvs everywhere. To tell you how successful that is in Nelson I will just say that today I spent all day watching random YT videos and the day before that. And probably all of tomorrow.

I used TradeMe for a while. Once I had cut the jobs I couldn’t physically get to via tricycle or bus with arthritis, then cut the physically impossible due to disability work, then cut everything that expected me to magically get experience from nowhere, I was usually left with one available job in total. I couldn’t even say if I were interested in these jobs, it was too early to say anything like that because these were usually jobs I knew nothing about. But I flung a CV at them anyway. I wanted part-time work for experience, as I had none. I still got rejections anyway. Even once I could put my familiarity with a cash register on my CV.

2018 I will be giving up the search as it is wasting time and energy that could be spent on art and writing, the work I actually want. So I am looking for side gigs that I can make out of this work.

Solo artists are small business owners. Artists are a brand. So I will need to focus on things like that at some point.

This year I need to focus on one project at a time because I am usually all over the place and I still have projects that have been sitting there literally for years.

In 2018 you might see more of me on this blog.

Happy New Year! Hope yours will be good.
