I come from the slash/slash generation. You know, we don’t have just one career anymore, we have a plethora of them, often simultaneously. Such as Bar Manager/Student, Marketing Manager/Artist/Photographer, Consultant/ Teacher/Web Designer. I’ve been all those people.
Right now I’m trying on the role of Artist/Writer/Mummy (or Artist/Writer/Chef/Cleaner/Chauffeur/Dog Walker/Teacher/Wife/Mother to be precise), spending five days a week as a stay-at-home mum and two days writing novels and painting abstracts.
It’s challenging, tiring, exhilarating, but above all it’s fun.
