If you happen to be in Berlin today, it’s your last chance to check out the Festival of Lights!
The annual light show takes place in the capital city every October, much to the enchantment of eager visitors like myself. 😆
Since I moved to Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg neighourhood in July, I’d been meaning to take my camera out to Choriner Street and capture shots of these colourful flags.
Finally had the chance to do so today. 😎
Having checked out a bunch of art events in town this past weekend, I really had the chance to connect with the creative side of me that used to draw, paint, set type, bind books, etc.
Immersing myself in all this creativity made me realize that though I’m not pursuing art/design professionally right now, it’s still a huge part of me and I don’t define myself solely by my current career path.
One key thing I’ve learned as a job seeker is that my identity isn’t entirely defined by my profession. Realizing this has been helpful for me in dealing with the ups and downs of carving out a career for myself (without the slightest idea how to go about doing it).
So yes, I’m a journalist, but I’m also…
