It's been two months at my new job. My, how time flies. I really didn't feel it - and it feels like I've been there for a hundred years (in a good way).

I've a few big projects rolling in and out (I work on it, then my boss does and then he sends it back with needed adins and changes) and some stuff I have transferred to me from the other guys in small doses (most of the importation in the branch will eventually go through me).

There was an instructing lecture today about the section's regulations - super long and boring - but at least I'm all caught up on 9gag and managed to do something for Society6 (here.

Went beck to the office only to sit in a meeting with Asaf and Motty arguing and then headed home.

On to "Orphan Black".

...and I'm passed the 100 followers! Some girl (Israeli, no surprizes there) started a Society 6 artists group on FB, which gave me like, 15 followers in 12 hours...

Still no buys but I'm hopefull.

And thank god Hagar texted me just now, because I totally forgot we had a show this evening.

Independence day was great as usual, but there was some rain and alot of wind. I dragged my mom out in the evening before to catch the fireworks, but I won't again. It's just not worth all the mess. So I'll only get to see the biggest and those who fly highest.

Regualr week next week, after all the hoo-ha of the last few.

OK. Back to "Out there"

I started my new job this week at the Standard Institute. The best thing I can say is that I feel at home. Everyone have been really nice, I don't mind the overtime (Asaf, my old boss from M. Gold is the head of the branch, and he made it very clear to me I need to do the overtime) and I'm super glad it's in Tel Aviv. 45 minutes by bus and I'm there, and no changes of buses, train, taxis or whatnots. I can't believe how much that's enjoyable.

Headcount )

I spent most of my time reviewing the standards' files and getting some information gathered about importing policies...

And that was my first week. Next week is short, with Memorial day on Monday (half day's work) and Independence day on Tuesday (oh! Turns out a full day is 8.5 hours, so every minute beyond that is overtime, which is nice). Gonna have some fun this week... :)


Had loads to do today - gave my doctor a visit to get conformation for work that I'm healthy and she decided I needed blood tests (I doubt I'll do them - I hate them and I feel fine, and I had blood work two years ago). I really hate when she gives me blood tests. It makes me woozy for the entire day.

Also went to consult with an optometrist in Netanya with my glasses saga (he said I would need to get new glasses with closer focal than what I have now to stop my eyes from straining, and that it would be a longer time to get used to them because I've had these for too long). Hopefull it'll work this time.

I also managed to drop by the port market and get some nice stuff and get a burrito at the mexican place I love.

And now I'm off to dive a bit into Society 6.

Free shipping on my Society 6 shop! Go to this link - http://society6.com/TamiIsaak?promo=8a429b

I have two (quite different, I might add) prints over 20 promotions. I gotta keep on my toes, through. I still haven't sold anything, except to Netalie. Work!

(I was super pissed up until I had dinner. The bus was 40 minutes late so I arrived home to run through change of clothes and cab ride to exercise class, and then my mom pissed me on the way back, but food is calming. I just wish I could have had tomorrow for myself - I need to go to the doctor for some stupid form for work and I have an optometrist apointment on 12:00, in Netanya, yeah, long glasses saga.)

Win of the day - get an artist I adore to follow me on Society 6 (today it's Nikola Nupra)


(Also, I'm up to 46 followers and two of my pieces are at the shop - true the shop has a hundred pages and each page has 20 pieces but still.)

(Oh, and if everything goes well I'm going to be starting work this Sunday - At the Israeli Institute of Standards)

(And yes, the Society 6 news takes precedent.)

There is more to day about yesterday and today, but it will wait.

I just scored Eric Fan (one of Society 6's biggest artists - this is his page, and as you can see his best sellers have some 900 promotions) as a follower. True, he follows about 1000 people, but I actually got his attention with a comment (my god I was first to comment in one of his posts!) and now...

I'm so very happy.

But I've been happy before that. Because, you know, for the first time in years I feel something moving with my art. I haven't sold anything yet, and I still have only 31 followers' and my most promoted piece has 12 promotions, but it's growing every day. After years of nothing but photography and telling people that, yes, I photograph and paint and people nodding and forgetting about it quite fast, I feel like this is change. It might die out as quickly as it came, but I've missed this feeling of hope. Maybe, just maybe, someone somewhere will buy the first piece and maybe more will follow.
