Move Forward in Adjustment -- Shirley's 585th Friendly Greeting - July 28, 2018

Hi,Dear Friends

How are you? Have you had a good week and are you enjoying your weekend? I do hope you have and you are.

This morning, after completing my 20th painting since I came back China, I would like to write my paper, however, when I checked the calendar, I realized it has been the 10th day since I wrote to you last time, therefore, instead of working on my paper, I started to update my web site and then to write to you.

After all, I do hope to keep in touch with you and I also think to write often is one of the best ways to check my work and thoughts according to my goals, to summarize what I have done and to adjust myself and to keep going on a right road.

Since I made a decision to stay in Beijing to complete my 9th year¨s study in Beijing, I have done several things:

-- I have cancelled many things in my life, but focus myself on painting and paper mainly. Therefore, in the past 10 days, I have painted 5 pictures and one of them is 195cm x 29cm (67.77inchies x 11.44 inches) , attended 2 courses for 6 hours and visited a new art exhibition. Also, the outline of one of my new papers has been approved by my supervisor.

-- I have reduced my work time from over 15 hours each day to be 12 or 13 hours, to take more time for resting, mainly for having more sleep. :-)

-- I have also tried to treat my own sicknesses with traditional Chinese medicine which is different food, since I myself knows why I was sick...

Some good news is:

-- The HR department of my former company would like to invite me to offer a lecture for their training of employees. I would really like to do it but I wouldn't do it until 2019 or at least after my paper passes the mid-term examination in the middle of Oct, 2018.

-- The company has sent some documents to me for they would like to buy a big and serious sickness insurance for me.

To be honest, after leaving from the company for many years, really I feel there are some pennies from the heaven dropping on my head indeed. :- )

With a grateful heart, now, I started to work at 3:30am or 4:00am often and go to sleep earlier than I did, listen to some English lessons when I am painting and I carefully look after my own food and life for I would really like to cherish my luck and try to do my best to improve my health,art practice and theory level for the purpose to help more people and to beautify this world...

How about you? Do you have anything special to share?

I am just a student on Arts of Painting, Music, English and Management,and work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do something with what I have learned, to make this little web site to be a little Electronic Bridge of Cross -cultural and Comprehensive Art Study and Chinese Language Learning, to help the others while to improve myself.

I would like to appreciate you for your good understanding, directions, supports and help.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, you are welcome to write to shirley@ebridge.cn or leave your message on Message Board.
