    That sounded like a fun job! You probably loved the attention by the very bohemian-minded women ;) What job do you have now?
    I write articles, these days mostly on culture (movies, books,..). But the past months, I've been working on a coursebook on 'possession' for a youth organization (yes, a veeeeery broad topic, I know:)). And I also do some translation and proofreading work. The money is getting better and better, so I hope I can keep on doing it. Still, I'm realistic - it's never gonna make me rich :p

    I work in commercial printing, make a good living at it, but it's not that rewarding.
    I was working weekends as an assistant to an Art Director for a local theatre last year, was great fun getting back into it... but I've since had to quit because my real job is too demanding on my time.
    What is 'possession', would that mean 'addiction'?

    Like HP or a paper company like in the Office? I love that show. :) it's too bad u had to quit the art job, but maybe later, you can pick it up again.. Nothing is definite, that's fun about life :)
    Oh no, more like 'property' or 'ownership'. But the Dutch word also hints at 'addiction'. It's about income inequality, intellectual property, state-led versus private companies, the sharing economy, circular economy, online privacy, gun ownership, .. Everything that has to do with ownership in a veryyy broad sense. :)

    I didn't know if by "possession", you meant demonic possession. I was hoping not.

    Cold at the moment...lol. I'm hoping we've had our last snowfall and that spring has finally decided to make a truly seasonal entrance. We're getting our house ready to sell (hopefully this summer sometime), so I'm hoping to get out and get working in my gardens pretty soon.

    Is it contract work you're doing with the writing? Glad to hear you're having fun with it. :)

    Yup, contract work.
    Ahh, Belgium is sunny and acceptably warm at the moment. I'm already looking forward to the summer!

    I'm fine. Just a bit bored and sleepy.

    Back after a very long absence. I should probably try to post here more often, TFF is a great community.
