I, Nomad

If you are a returning reader you might already know that I have moved several times from one working place to the other, never settling down for a long time at the same place.

I´ve been working in a corner of a family member´s house

a workspace to finish sci-fi short film

I have drawn and written stories on train rides:

I have worked in a cellar without any windows used by the tenants of my block as a shared storage room:

…in a food court in a megaplex:

… in cafés and Segafredos:

… and in a shared office:

So what´s wrong with this guy? You might ask.

Nothing, I guess. 🙂

I just could not use these spots any more – for one reason or another. The cellar, for example, had no fresh air so I got dizzy after three hours (and I was down there for up to nine hours). The shared space, which I liked a lot, was too far away from my home (I had to spend three and a half hours on the train to get there and back).

When something does not work out for one reason or another you just have to find a way to cope with that… or find another route – fast.

And sometimes, you just have to have a little bit of luck and recognize an opportunity as such when it comes along: I have a new working place and I do not have to travel by train to get there! More about that in my next blog post, so stay tuned. 🙂
