How We live is what makes us Real

Do a whole bunch

After arriving in Canberra in 2013 I decided to take a break from the corporate world for a little bit. And get involved in a whole bunch of different things.

I made a list of stuff I wanted to do.  It looked a little something like this:

  1. Work with small businesses
  2. Do more making/crafting
  3. Volunteer
  4. Work with animals
  5. Start a business
  6. Temp
  7. Teach workshops
  8. Try new things

As you can see the list wasn’t exhaustive but it’s very different to the life I used to lead. So for the last 4 years, I’ve dipped my toe in a whole bunch of things 🙂 It was the best way to get a taste of different industries and improve my skills in different areas.

So far this is what I’ve gotten up to:

🍎 Taught craft workshops at The Makers Hub
🛍️ Worked in a gift shop called Living in Style
💜 Started my creative venture over at One.By Me For You
☎️ Worked as a receptionist at Artisan Recruitment

It’s been so much fun! I’ve learnt a lot. Met some amazing people. Laughed a lot.

And I can’t wait to see what happens next. So watch this space! 😆🎉
