Our first go at the Indie Speed Run finished last weekend, but I have taken a bit long to write about everything that’s happened… Because I’ve been packing away my belongings to move back to living at my home town. Since I have finished my masters degree (as of Thursday) I am moving back with my parents for a bit. I have been given a little part time job at the same Chinese Takeaway where I worked over a year ago, as well as a few days’ work at a gift shop where I also used to work.
As is to be expected I’m feeling nervous and afraid of the future. Yup, like last year when I completed my bachelors degree, I feel a bit lost again. I just arrived at my parents’ house this afternoon, so the day’s been spent unpacking and organising…
Luckily I have some ideas for upcoming art projects; collaborations and solo work. I also have two commissions to work on. I suppose continuing forward is the best option right now. I try to have short term, achievable goals, so that I don’t get disheartened. There is no rush to become an “established” artist. I will go slowly forward.
I hope one day soon I can live independently, perhaps in a house together with my friends. I am not too bothered about the location as long as there is an internet connection! But that’s a more far-off ambition for now.
I know this post doesn’t sound very positive, but whatever. If you’ve read this far down into the text then you probably didn’t mind so much! I’ll try to keep going with my work and I hope I can save up money too.
Once the game is online I’ll be writing a bit more about our competition entry!
Thank you for reading, x
