I caught up with comedian, Steph Tisdell when she visited the Isa. I wish I could show you the outtakes! 😜Read More
Do you find yourself asking that question? What am I doing? What was I doing?
I have asked myself these questions for the past couple of months or so.
It’s been a crazy journey and I’ve woken up at the crack of dawn to redesign my website plus write a new blog post.
I have been juggling a new job (more on that later) in a pretty complex area. It’s certainly been an eye-opener and has made me question and reflect my values, beliefs and world view. On top of that, trying to complete postgrad uni studies.
But the biggest news of all; I am part of not one, but TWO mega productions that are programmed for the Queensland Music Festival for 2019!
Here is my Instagram post of me singing at the launch of the festival program!
The Mount Isa Blast is musical and theatre EXTRAVAGANZA set in the Kalkadoon Area at Buchanan Park, Mount Isa. It’s such an honour to be a part of a community production and singing in my hometown, especially being a part of this event with the BullDust band. We have been working hard for the last six months and rehearsing. It’s good to get back in that particular space again. We have all done an excellent job so far (everyone juggling our own personal commitments), even if I do say so myself!
The Genius of John Rodgers will be a beautiful celebration concert of a man I am proud to call my mentor, but most importantly, my friend.
So grateful for these opportunities. I am still pinching myself and trying to find the right words on how to explain this all. But for now, I think I’ll just let it sink in!
Oh dear.. I say that nicely. But it’s been such a busy, productive and almost surreal start to the year.
For the past month, I’ve been settling into my new job. It’s been such an eye-opener, but also a rewarding challenge.
I also decided to step outside my comfort zone and dive deep into the creative vortex - a Grad Certificate in Writing and Literature is just what I needed, apparently 😉
And if that wasn’t enough, myself and my band have said yes to what could be one of the biggest gigs of careers to date! PHEW!
Anyone out there I’d like to be my personal assistant for the next six months? Don’t all rush at once 😜
I realise now how precious time is and how much of a waste of time social media is. I was only having this discussion today with a close friend of mine.
I made mention of how much time one wastes, aimlessly scrolling through Facebook, Instagram and/or LinkedIn.
We could be doing so much more. We could be so much more. It’s one of those things; love/hate relationship. I guess you have to make it work to your advantage, plus know what your own personal technological limits are.
I do like social media. It’s fantastic. It’s a great way to keep in tough - in real time. You can make extremely important connections - in life and business. It’s also great, as a freelance artist, to really promote yourself, your work and what you’re doing.
I guess it’s just up to the individual to say ‘enough is enough’ and you have put down that phone, close that laptop and go and focus on the important things in life. And in saying that, I best go start planning my very first uni assignment! YAY! 👩🏾💻👩🏾🎓
Can you tell me some of the strategies you use, to personally manage your own social media time? I’d love to know.
Oh.. by the way.. HAPPY MARDI GRAS! 🌈🦄
