Went to an apple festival today and I was excited to get my face painted. I spoke with the main lady who paints faces and asked her how she started. It inspired me, and I told her how I’ll take that as a lesson to put my art out there and opportunities will come.
She asked about my art and I showed her and she was going to recruit me to be a face painter.
It’s a shame I’m an hour away from the festival’s location and I don’t have my own car.
It was really disappointing, but almost bittersweet. I enjoyed her story, and the fact that I got an opportunity for an art related job for the first time in my life for simply talking and reaching out means that maybe one day I can have an art related job, instead of a random one that will pay the bills.
I don’t know what I want to do with my life still, but these little moments are helping me find what I like little by little.
I may feel really bummed out and sad, but I also feel grateful for that experience. It may have been a short phone call that didn’t mean much but it did for me, and she even complimented my art. 10 dollars for something I’ll be thinking about for awhile…
