Doing what you love is what I promise myself , I will be do this year. No more excuses.But when I say doing what I love .I have been doing it for about a year or so. And I haven’t made enough money doing it. But this year I am dedicated to it and making it a liveable income. Deep down I don’t think I believed, I could make an income but this year.I am making steps to up my skills, so I can make a living income . I have enrolled in a few free online courses at .https://alison.com .I am studying a diploma in Photography, one in Maths course and another English course to help with my English Grammar and punctuation since English isn’t my native language.
The Photography course is really fun.Its taken me a long time to realise I am very creative. I grew up in a Nigerian house where the only thing my parents valued was academia, since there both teachers and so was my paternal grandfather.Arts were frowned a upon.People from my background on a council estate didn’t become Photographer , Artist etc.They were to busy struggling to survive.
But lucky I am an adult now and can do what I want. I am working on my own personal photography portfolio website to showcase my photos.I honestly never realise that I take a lot of photos.
I took this photo in Salford or Wigan but it was on cheap compact camera Nikon L29 .Its beautiful photo.I didnt realise I have a good eye for photography.
I am also working on my other website for my other project Brown Sugar Mag. I am super busy and enjoying the break from YouTube. I am also trying to read a book or too.I miss YouTube but not prepared to do lots of YouTube videos and only make 100 dollars a year.I want to be a photographer ,animator , illustrator , child book author and a handbag designer. No more mediocre living and making mediocre income. Its about doing what I love and being paid to do it.I want to go back to college in September to get Maths and English GCSE too. YouTube can wait they’ve been exploiting small YouTuber like me for years.
