It's like deja vu all over again!

True to the saying "The more things change, the more they stay the same", I'm back at square one. Of course I have to ask myself if I ever really left this square.

I know, you're probably wondering what the heck I'm talking about. H'kay, let me fill you in.

As you well know, my capstone project was originally going to be on how I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with my education once I graduate. I happily stumbled into managing Jen's art career during one fateful meeting at the Pelly and thought I found a capstone project that I could be passionate about.

Guess again...

I had my first capstone meeting this weekend and let's just say things didn't go as planned. I presented my capstone outline to my prof and group, and discussed what the journey has been like for me thus far. I talked about what I've learned over the past few months as well as my personal trials and tribulations as the manager of an artist.

It turns out the true essence of what I'm doing for my capstone is figuring out my career path. Sound familiar? Yeah, I thought so too.

The good news is that I will continue to manage Jen as I really love her art. The even better news is that I have an absolutely riveting topic for my capstone project: me!

Seriously though, it'll be good! In the meantime, anyone got a compass?

Twinkle Twinkle

Do you ever get that feeling like you’ve got a lucky star shining down upon you?  I’m living in an attitude of gratitude because I’ve got an awesome life.

Case in point, I’ve got amazing friends who are always there for me.  One in particular that comes to mind is my dear friend Damien – marketing guru extraordinaire!  Thanks to him I’ve got a plan, and it’s always good to have a plan. 

In the meantime, let me update you on what’s been happening with Jen.  I’m pleased to report that you can now see Jen’s art in 2 locations – The Pelican Rouge, and Five Corners Bistro.  I highly recommend you check out both locations because as lovely as the photos of Jen’s paintings are, they really don’t do them justice.

For those of you who are itching to learn just how Jen does what she does, she’ll be teaching a class based on her metamorphosis series at Clipper Street Scrapbook Company in Langley.  There’s a link here on the right side of the blog for you to register online and I recommend that you sign up while there are still spots available.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
