February 28, 2018- Let it snow, and keep a warm heart!

 

Hello and farewell February,

it is so beautiful to see the snowflakes fall, and the city covered in a white, … it’s magical especially when you are not used to it and… kind of makes me feel dreamy…

So, what next dear April?

Some of my friends go through existential questions, one of them has found a job in the Netherlands and he is feeling lonely, … he is Dutch but apparently, after a period of time spent in the UK, that helps to confuse oneself…

My other friend is finishing a PhD, this is wonderful, but it needs so much concentration, and she feels as if she doesn’t have time to meet anyone, because she is single… and what is more, she doesn’t know if after all this effort she’ll find a job…

So, how do we feel at home?

And if the job is important, how do we adapt and feel ok in our new environment?

I have been too job-oriented also, and security is something that I don’t know, … yet.

What makes me continue, is a sense of purpose.

I KNOW there is something I need to create and to communicate.

This helps me continue, even if the only thing which is stable, is change 🙂

So February, let it snow!

January 11, 2018-Back to London and to a faster pace ;-)

Hello January,

hello London, I am back here, with my morning coffee, and my job starting today. I love this morning time when I get a chance to dream and to plan, and to float over the rooftops.

So, here I am, and if my coffee time is here to stay, let’s see what else is going to change!

Let’s start with a Harland Miller painting because it makes me smile 🙂

December 5, 2017- Ninja day, again- or how to be precise and effective facing real estate agents

Hello December,

Tuesday already, and let’s celebrate Ninja day by being very precise and effective in whatever we have to do!

Apparently, as I find in wikipedia: “A ninja (忍者) or shinobi (忍び, “to sneak”) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare.[1] Their covert methods of waging irregular warfare were deemed dishonorable and beneath the samuraicaste, who observed strict rules about honor and combat.[2]

So, if we are inspired by the Ninja spirit, putting some parts of the role behind us, – for storytelling :-)- Ninja are deemed dishonorable because they were coming from a lower background than samurai, but they were very effective and precise.

One of the things I will try is to get back my deposit from a real estate agent in London who didn’t rent me a studio on time, and then I had to find another solution.

Let’s try to do that for now.

December 2nd, 2017-New Month, New Home :-)

Hello November,

I am holding the keys to my new place! It has been such an adventure to find a place to live in London, with a part-time job. I found a flatshare and I am very grateful!

I am moving in today and I need to deliver the keys of my temporary “chez-moi” by 15.00.

It’s going to be a long day since my flatmate is also moving in on the same day and we need to coordinate.

New Month, New Home, New Life?

November 29, 2017- How to get in a studio in London with agent asking 6 months rents

Hello November,

so I found myself a studio, and when I thought I could move in, the agent asks for 6 months rents in advance because my part-time job is not satisfactory enough in his eyes.

Now what?

I need to leave where I stay now, and it is a very busy time to start searching again.

The ideal solution would be another job to manifest right away.

The second, to get Santa sent me the money in advance.

And the third, to keep searching…

Is there another I didn’t already think about?

Feel free to offer some advice!

November 24, 2017-Studio or one bedroom flat?

Dear November,

it seems that I have found a new place: there is a studio I have flirted with, but now I also like a small one bed. flat. Almost the same square meters, the first is close to a park and the canal, the second close to a market and nice cafés. Similar in terms of price.

I also need to move out asap, but I want to go somewhere I really like, not just take the first thing, no matter what.

Any thoughts?

P.S. They don’t look exaclty like that, at least… not yet 🙂

November 3, 2017- Fear of publishing and NaNoWriMo to face it

Hello November,

I just singed up in National November Writing Month, and it feels so great to announce a novel in a month! Since I have identified the fear of publishing as one of my biggest ones, let’s see how it goes now that I have taken this step.

So, my novel is starting, a sequel to a previous one, and let’s see how it goes!

I already have a title and I am to write every day. One Month, One Novel.

October 26, 2017- How to become oneself and live with others while having morning coffee

Hello October,

yesterday I had a discussion on what it is to be oneself and to live with others. I don’t like conforming, this is boring and the opposite of life to me. But we also live with others, how does this coincide?

I put up an artistic project where I try a compromise: do something I love, but give to the Establishment something they will like, so that everyone can feel happy about it.

Now let’s see how it will go.

If making others happy doesn’t cost me my quintessential values, I can do that.

Oh, and coffee is good at Beany Green near Paddington Central.

October 24, 2017- New Home, New Adventures, in London

Hello October,

I will concentrate on the adventures part because this is what matters most at this moment. I wake up early and look for potential cafes in my new neighborhood.

With my fridge empty, all my clothes on my bed and my bank account at a low point, I suffered bying a duvet cover in a huge department store in Oxford Circus.

And here I am today, with my body feeling tired after having waited for hours in front of a till to pay and then carrying my loot back home.

In the meanwhile, the main reason why I looked for a duvet cover, is still valid: I am to stay more in London, because I am looking for a central place to start my initiative from. Brexit and all, London still seems to be a central mega-polis.

So, I will stick around for a while.

 

August 31, 2017-Back to School and Back to London

Hello August,

I have just got back to London and to a beautiful sunshine, although the temperature is lower than at the South of France. And here is a pile of bills waiting for me, and a very busy month ahead.

Somehow, and without no tangible reason, I am very optimistic. I take a break and enjoy the sunshine and a cup of coffee before dealing with re-al-ity.

I feel that I have something special to contribute to the world, through my art, and presence.

Yes, I have been a misunderstood genius, but I will come into terms with my co-humans into this life even if I have to go around the world.

To begin with, I realise I need a personal assistant 😉

The second thing, is to look into the priorities and not the urgent things.
