I’ve been using the down-time with work to rest up as well as work on my project proposals for some opportunities that came through this month. I am hoping that with all my hard-work and newly gained knowledge of project proposals that I will see some success next year. Otherwise, I will have to wait until next year to apply again and learn some more.
I met a grant application teacher at the Worcester State U. The Art of Science/Science of Art reception who teaches out of RI College and he was happy to look over one of my proposals. I got positive feedback from him which made me feel really good about that particular proposal. 🙂 I will hear from that particular proposal beginning of next month, not too long of a wait.
One other project was to get portfolio work together. And that was a nightmare . That particular organization was very picky about how things are put together and could disqualify you if you mess anything up. So for several weeks, I diligently worked on it… perfecting the layout + sequence of things as well as written work.
Freelance work has been slow… my client in Dubai had some work for me and then my client in Marlborough, got sick again so things have been delayed which I am OK with since my project proposals had the most immediate deadline.
I also had another surgery in my ear this past week… as that was the next step in the saga.. to remove all the infected cells in the ear canal and I will continue to go back for follow-ups.
I also have some things in the wings regarding K Glyphics and whatnot that I’m hoping will manifest in the next week or so.
Next monday, I am attending a small business workshop that my mom got an invite for but can’t go…. so I’m going in her place. Excited to learn some more things… with entrepreneurship you can’t go wrong with learning new things.
Next week is thanksgiving and we’ll be spending it at my brother’s and his girlfriend’s place in Arlington.
Another trip to Hyannis is coming up at the end of the month as I will be dropping off a Bluebells print at the shop where my products are at.
So just hanging in there, and focusing on staying active. Winter is one of the worst seasons for me, and one of the hardest ones to find work, so I am fearful but somehow I think I’m going to be OK this winter.
