My mind has been so preoccupied lately with the tons of writing assignments I have to check. I am handling English for Academic and Professional Purposes this year and I have around 280 students in that subject. I also handle Business Ethics with 35 students. I only have 30 minutes of recess and 30 minutes of lunch with no other breaks in between. My lunch break isn't even enough for me to clear my head and get ready for my next class. Sometimes I feel my legs getting numb from standing too long and my chest tightening from sheer exhaustion.
And then I have my clients to attend to in my Sun Life business. I have to find time to call them, to see them, to submit what is needed at the head office and to look for more clients. I have recently made a Facebook page specially for this business hoping to attract more prospects before the year is over and I have been busy thinking of a good content to put up on that page too.
I have recently stumbled on Shopify which I am sure many of you know of. I am attempting to build a store but I don't know if I will ever be able to finish setting it up. It's just too complicated for a technological immigrant like myself. I am having a hard time setting up the shipping fees, taxes, payment options and all that stuff. I have, however, already thought of a name for it.
Just last weekend, I discovered a new love. Hunnybed fetched me from a water spa where some teachers and I were at but the traffic was still too heavy that we decided to wait a while. Hunnybed and I decided to try painting at Sip and Gogh to kill time. This is an art studio where guests can try painting. They have different art works that you can copy and resident artists to tell you what to do. They also serve wine or juice together with some finger foods to their guests.
I chose a landscape painting to copy and Hunnybed chose a pair of Kois.
That night was truly one for the books. It had been so long since I've had that much fun. I cannot say that I have finally discovered my hidden talent because I do not think I am talented in painting nor in drawing. I can draw, I can copy and sketch but my work are nothing extraordinary. However, seeing my painting that night gave me a feeling of such sweet accomplishment!

I can't wait but paint again!
