It is truly fascinating how much time and effort I put into pursuing and pushing my career as a belly dancer. My website has 120 posts and 26 pages and that is for the German part only. I also translated a lot of posts into English. On this blog I have 218 posts. Isn’t that a lot of work? How many hours did I spend creating content for those websites and now everything is history. How can I proceed without all of this being wasted?
Of course, I will leave everything as an archive for myself and everyone who enjoys watching the videos. But besides that? What can I do to somehow pursue an artistic lifestyle? Of course, I need a job to make money. But besides that I need an output for my creative energy. I feel that my motivation is coming back. I just need a way to reintegrate it in my life.
I have always loved working on my projects in my leisure time. That’s why I wanted to make it a full time job. But it didn’t work out. Now I need to find new ways to handle everything that I’m capable of. There are two things that I really want to do, but I don’t know if I have enough time to do so. The first thing is vocal coaching and the second thing is a tandem partner for learning Arabic.
What I already did was creating a mastermind group to help me achieve my goals. We have met one time till now and I hope that this will be a helpful institution. Besides that I am blogging on a daily basis and here of course every week. That is the plan. I would really love to be one of those internet famous people, but I don’t see that I can achieve this any time soon. I say internet famous because of this video. If you didn’t see it by now, do so. It is a must watch!
It’s been a week since I promised regular postings and here I am not knowing what to write. This blog was supposed to be a place for my glamorous life, but now I don’t have a glamorous life anymore. I guess you have to get used to a new me.
I could start describing the life that I am living right now. I work part-time in a software company. We do E-Commerce. I am working as support agent, but I also do a lot of HTML and CSS work. I decided to do a further education in Web-Development and I’m gonna start with this in October probably.
I am still giving dance classes in our studio and I am learning the Arabic language. It gives me great joy to study and practice it. I still dream to move to Dubai, but I don’t know if I will really do it. I hope that I can visit the city next year and then decide if I like it or not.
As you see I lead a normal life and it is not glamorous at all. I didn’t do any photo-shootings for ages and I don’t know when I will find the time to do one. I will continue posting great pictures of me, because I still have some old ones that are pretty good.
I still live in Berlin. I like my home, but I also dream of leaving it and seeing more of the world. I hope that I can do that soon. After I finish my Web-Developer training, I want to become self-employed and I hope that I will have better chances to travel then. Right now I’m lacking the money and also the bravery.
Summer Vacation is over. Everyone’s got back to work. For me this means teaching belly dance three times a week. I was really excited to get myself moving again after six weeks of physical lazyness. And I was so happy … Continue reading →
