The lustre and novelty of the new job has worn off. The newness and unfamiliarity had me on my toes when I started. Six months later, I've gotten into the rhythm of things and settled into a familiar, repetitive routine.
My workplace, although imperfect, has grown on me and the days that I drag my feet to work are few. I am happy that my bread and butter comes from doing what I do best - facilitating learning.
And yet restlessness comes. I suppose such is the nature of a life gypsy - never fully settled, always ready and poised to take on something new.
It is with this restlessness that I blurted out to G-third one night, " I need a creative outlet."
And he goes, "E di, why not draw and draw until you become really good at it?"
Why not? Lightbulb!
So thus was borne the 30-Day Creativity Challenge. The Creativity part states that I must produce one handmade artwork a day, and the Challenge is to do it for 30 days.
Day 1 starts tomorrow!
