As you know by now I'm incredibly good at keeping my stuff updated. Let me tell you what my life looks like currently xD
After living in South Africa for four years (the time where I actually regularly posted stuff!) I lived in France alone : there I conducted art studies at a prep school that smashed any desire to art I ever had : then I worked for one year as a florist apprentice, then studied photography for another year, then I was at a loss what to do with my life so I returned with my parents... who lived in South Korea at the time ! I stayed there for one year running professional abilities tests and working with a coach. Then moved back to France for good (FINALLY) with my parents and engaged in a veterinary assistant two-year study.
Between 2010 and 2013 I've been working in a vet clinic in Paris, 5th "district" ? (arrondissement) with a tyranic boss and a sweet second vet with whom we would spend entire mornings complaining about the boss lying, cheating, not paying his taxes, being a general jerk with everyone etc. It was somewhat fun, but mostly I learned a lot about how to be around people I don't know, and especially handle them properly ! Obviously learned alot about pets, too, but it was less significant to me than the general improvement of social skills xD
After my apprenticeship contract in that clinic ended, the boss hired another apprentice so he would keep on getting money from the government, and I was kindly requested to move on with my life. By that time, I had met my soulmate over Internet while working with him in a crew develloping a browser game around the Dune universe (Frank Herbert). He's 31 - and I'm 27 - doesn't drink or smoke anything, is a geek and open-minded enough for me which is saying much. I had absolutely given up hope on finding any partner like that and I'm very much in love with him, so that's the good part ! Upon loosing my job I moved to Bayonne (south-west of France) with him in a small appartement, away from Paris, and we started working on web projects after it became clear there was no employment available in the pet/animal jobs around. We're in the process of creating the company to work legally
So that's currently where I am ^^ I have two adorable cats who are over a year and a half old, a stripped grey female and a black long-haired male whom I made available for breeding because he's so beautiful and good-spirited. I garden a lot, trade/sell my plants and seeds at local gardening gatherings, trying to grow my own food, getting quite into "do it yourself" general attitude which fits my principles ! By next summer we should move into a house with much more land that we would rent from a friend so I should be able to organize the garden exactly as I will which I'm pretty excited about. Tons of ideas here ! Also I'm dying for a puppy, but fiancially wouldn't be a responsible thing to do at the moment
Also I hate winter. Always have. The sun is gone and so is my general energy and motivation for things. See you in the spring.
