Hey everyone...Are you finding that summer is going by really fast too? Considering that I've had a pretty long summer already- it seems to just be disapearing! How is it August already? Why haven't I read more books yet? Why haven't I started in ernest my summer project?
It's good. I'm the type of person who finds it VERY difficult to have an honest break away from work and stress. I'm a workaholic. Seriously. It's one of the reasons I got ill in the first place- always pushing myself too hard.
So, in a way it's good. It's great that I've been able to let go a little bit and be free and let myself breathe. I'm proud of myself for that. For saying, YES- I'm going to go to Devon for a week. YES- I'm going to visit a friend in Birmingham. YES- I'll come on a mystery road trip this weekend! YES- I'll ride in the back of a van with no seatbelts so we can go fly kites on the beach! YES- I'm having some time to do some art journalling.
After years of teaching myself to say 'no- sorry I can't, I need to stay in and rest(or work)', it feels liberating. Thank you, college, for giving us such a good bunch of time off- we needed it!
My calendar is still pretty full (of fun!) for August- which is exciting! But in between taking this time off- I've been preparing for Renegade! Sep 15+16! Looking forward to it a lot!
Lets see- what else? Oh, I agree wholeheartedly with Amy on this: Beauty Standards are Stupid. This post too on similar thread. I've been listening to these people, basically on repeat: Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, OK GO.
I started using Pinterest properly. You can see some peeks of my inspirations for a re-brand of Art Equals Happy. It's the begining of something special.
:] Thanks for letting my catch up. The above photo is a double exposure I created digitally using photos that Jazz took. We were on a windy and sunny ferry. kimxo
