I posted this in my deviantART journal this morning:
Today I'm going to visit the Box Factory of the Arts... or something like that. I'm going to see if I might be able to sell my art and photography there... or find out where I might be able to do so elsewhere.
I really need to find some employment that I enjoy... even if it doesn't make much money, and this seems like a step in the right direction. I've avoided doing things that I enjoy for a living for fear that I would stop enjoying them if I did, and thus far have been met with depressing results. So I figure why not give it a try. No... not try... I'm going to do it, and I'm going to rock at it. Anyway, that's the mindset I'm going to maintain. You can't accomplish anything if you're constantly criticizing yourself can you?
So here's to hoping I can find something that doesn't make me hate my life!
Then after I got back replied to Nudge1's comment:
Good luck with that. I'm sure that with a positive attitude and determination you'll make it work, even if it takes a while to work well for you. Besides, enjoyment is far more important than money anyhow :)Yes, I fully agree.... and it took me far too long to finally realize it too! The Box Factory was really sweet, and after I become a member I can have up to 3 pieces of my art/photography added to the galleries. I was also instructed to make sure I compensate for the 20% the Box Factory will be taking from the price should they sell before I settle on an asking price. I have to admit, this whole thing is becoming very exciting :D
So that's about it for now. Tomorrow we're having a get together at my Grandmother's house, it's the second weekend since my grandfather's passing.... I've yet to write a journal about it.... I just can't find the motivation. He was in a lot of pain and confined to a bed the last year of his life, so we're all relieved he doesn't have to suffer anymore, but still.
I hate to end on a negative note like that, sooooo ummmmm..... hey I posted a new picture in my image section, go look at it!
