Travelling has made me realise a lot of things…including that it might be ok to want to earn money.
Like many people working in the Arts, saying that you would like to earn more money makes my toes curl up in a ball. As part of my meandering career trajectory I’ve negotiated myself a pay decrease. Twice. I often get offered work without being told what it pays, and have started jobs kinda assuming that it’ll all work out in the end.
Sometimes it did, sometimes it really, really didn’t.
