‘Cause its Friday Five

1. What do you do for a living?Its an interestingly complex question for me. To make money, 'cause we all need money to live, I am a project coordinator for a really cool fund within government. But what I do is not all about money really and I wish that I could make money doing what I really love to do, life is complicated that way. So I do all kinds of other things. I write poetry, stories, screenplays, stage scripts, and am excruciatingly slowly working on a novel. I am learning photography. I am learning webdesign. I have written, filmed, edited a couple of very very independent film projects. I paint. I dance. I love. I do all of these things to live - living is oh such much more than paying the bills. I also make simple questions difficult, apparently.

2. What do you like most about your job? I like the fact that in a very small way, I am a part of something larger and that the money that flows out funds some great projects which affect the healthcare of many people in this province. Plus I work with the most awesome, dedicated, caring people imaginable - I'm really lucky that I really like everyone I am surrounded by.

3. What do you like least about your job? shuffling paper. shuffling paper. shuffling paper. too many meetings.

4. When you have a bad day at work it's usually because _____... I have to much to do and not enough time to do it, usually due to a large number of meetings.

5. What other career(s) are you interested in? Art and Design. While my degrees have helped me in finding gainful employment so that I can support both myself and my son, this is just a stop-gap and eventually I will be in a position to move out to the coast with my music making, audio engineering, sound producing, computer geek of a man and we can start our own business doing what we love and combining the sound, the word, the visual. I don't need a lot of money honey, I just need to live in this world dreaming loving and creating ... well, once my son is happily following his path with the knowledge that I have been able to provide him with ever opportunity to do so. Piano, soccer, university, swimming, traveling experiences, choir, running club, etc. etc. ... it all costs monies but worth it to see him enjoying his childhood, filling his spaces with his choices, watching him get excited about various activities and knowing that I can help provide him with the opportunities that he seeks out. Have a great weekend!
