This seems to be the second question I seem to find SOOO hard to answer next to "how are you?" coz really? HOW are you?
"What's your job, or what do you do for a living?" I think the to answer that question depends on the time of the day...
If you'd ask me at 6 am-10 am I'd tell you I'm a writer, but if you'd ask me fro 11 am to 9 pm I'd tell you I'm a ballet teacher/dancer (and please don't call me an"instructor") I only find that applicable to fitness people. I don't teach fitness classes. Ugh. Ballet is not a fitness class people, it's NOT. Puhlease!
And! If you'd ask me on my days off, which you'd normally find me running around art events or at just sitting at home in front of my computer blasting emails and digitally marketing stuff then I'd tell you I'm a magazine publisher.
I told that to my boss one time because even she got confused saying I do so many things.. oh and yeah, I occasionally could be a painter or a photographer--like that few times I did a couple of seminars and talks about visual art overseas...
She told me to just tell people that I'm an artist, which I am, so I do..but when I do people would ask what kind of artist am I and when I do they would just freak out. *face palm*
It's just always so confusing, aside from the fact that I naturally am already one confused person so, I just ask myself, what's my job? Haha! Plus it's extra confusing because in one day I do all sorts of different things...It's like a work version of MPD (multiple personality disorder) except that it's not a personality.
So are you confused?
Well, I (still) am..but if you (or we) are still are, then let's sort it out.
I'm a full-time ballet teacher, writer and editor of an online dance magazine in Hong Kong ( the magazine is in English in case you're wondering..lol don't' speak Canto) Who also run an independent art magazine I have co-founded with my brother and is called Magazine 43.
How have I become one? I have no idea, but we'll find out soon! Stick around and let you know how I ended up with all these jobs (which I'm not really sure if that is a good thing or not)
Till, next week!!! :)
