November 4 – Second day of challenge: have fun!

Dear November,

I was to have a meeting with the big boss this morning, but something came up and he postponed it to tomorrow morning.

This is ok, but he also added I need to discuss the details of my project with the wannabe boss, the no 2, and this is what I have been trying to avoid. The wannabe boss has been very hard on me last year, and I want to go around him, let him be in a parallel universe to mine. Like two planets with a different orbit…

At the same time, there is the funding proposal for the end of the week. The deadline could be useful to concentrate and come up with something clear that can be communicated to other people…

I have advanced with that last night, however, there is more 🙂

After some moments of self-doubt and questioning, I went to the nearest park and watched the trees, the grass and birds. It was an inspiring moment. If I am going to convince anyone, I have first to be convinced of my ideas. And enthusiastic about them! Isn’t it great!

The most important thing is to have fun with the whole process 🙂

So I am going to pump up the volume of fun!

Another vintage song:





July 7- Busy week

Dear July,

it has been quiet a busy day! I just finished an email, destined to the wannabe boss, who wanted to know what exactly I have been doing with my small budget. Well, euh… I spent it! Not completely, but it is as if…

…for the artistic event I am organizing at the end of July in the South of France! And for the one that starts tomorrow!

Actually I need to be my own boss, or to refer to someone who trusts and believes in me! And the best thing is to find these people by myself and suggest the whole team to the big boss.

Anyway, this has been a Monday full of contacts, emails, booking tickets, … there was even time for the dentist! I invited some friends who are artists in the South of France event. Some of them used to live in Paris, but have moved to London. One of the artists with a young daughter wanted to know if there were other same age children for her to play. Oh là là, it is quiet complicated, you need to take so different things into account!

When I came back home, I checked B’s Facebook page.

I wanted to text him, but I wasn’t in such a good mood, so I avoided it … Something tells me he is going through something in his work.

I talked to a friend of his, but didn’t succeed to turn the conversation in the right direction…

Anyway, this is not the moment to investigate it further, and the day was busy enough to add more questions.

Tomorrow there is a big Parisian exhibition that will last the whole week and I am co-responsible for it. I need to be present and help out as much as possible…

Here is a cute to do list from Luisine’s blog, who is an english teacher: it could be very helpful!
