Sunny Lin is Alive and Well and on the Move
Leaving London was a hard task as I was so much in love with that city. Full of unpredictable surprises, parties, culture, and etc etc.
Madrid has been all about growing pains. After years of working at a full time job, I decided to become a freelance at the beginning of 2006. It was the best decision ever as I had the opportunity to work on my own and going from project to project. I didn't have to clock in and clock out. I just had to finish the job. I worked in various industries: fashion, film, and music. It was great because I never got bored. I met random people and the most important thing was - I loved the work. It was hard as I had to prove myself everytime I crossed over to another industry. But pretty much, my work was down to production and logistics. I loved it. It was chaotic but it motivated me. I worked long hours but I didn't mind. I remember when I was working at MetroRock Festival - I worked 12-14hrs daily and 7 days a week. It was a month of hard work but at the same time very rewarding at the end. And now as a TV Presenter/Host I work about 10-15 hours a week and hating the free time. I guess I am a workalcoholic.
