... ou comment vivre une vie créative

Monday, April 23, 2012


Remember this post where I told you all how I felt miserable at work?
Well, I've quit 3 weeks ago. I couldn't take it anymore.
I am sooooo glad I did.
We decided to take a break and travelled for two weeks in Turkey with Margot and we came back two days ago.
And, I have a job interview tomorrow in another hospital!
Right now, I'm working in my travel journal to blog them as soon as possible.
Here are spread 1 to 4 :
It's a journal I've received from my father a couple of weeks ago. The cover is magnificent (made of fabric) but the pages aren't sturdy enough to glue and paint...
I did it anyway but I'm not very pleased with the result.
Before leaving for a next trip, I'll make time to cover all the remaining pages with gesso.

Good luck nathalie. I am glad you chose you and your family over that crappy situation. No one should have to put up with that xxx

Big risks can equal big payoffs, right? Good luck tomorrow with your interview and I'm happy to hear you got out of that hospital. Those "mentors" really didn't treat you in a professional way.

I like the airplane, but I think I know what you mean. The spread where you glued the ticket looks a little wrinkled. My husband gave me a journal like that once and it's tough. Can't wait to see your next spreads.

Bonjour Nathalie, je suis contente que tu sois de retour. Je te souhaite un milieu de travail dans lequel tu pourras t'épanouir.

J'aime l'avion qui prend toute la place en plein milieu de la page. C'est une position de force et de détermination... Serait-ce que tu refais tes forces? :)

Au plaisir.

Hello Nathalie, have been trying to 'catch-up' on some blogs (have a bad back so can't sit for long...grrr), but have got to your blog and see that you resigned - Good for you. We have to make decisions in life and if you are so unhappy in a job it just is not worth it. Good luck with your interview.

Hi Nathalie, I just saw your contribution to Julies "Art Journal every day" and I loved your work. So I came here and found your very honest writing about the terrible job. I just felt so sorry for you! But then I continued reading and now you've quit and I felt so happy for you. I wish you all the best, I'm sure you'll end up where you are ment to be. We all do. And I hope you will have time to do your art too, I saw your drawings of children and you are so talanted. I hope you got the job, I'll be coming back to see how you are doing.
