Oh yeah…August…?

Hi friends!

So let’s address the elephant in the room: my radio silence all month.
I’ve had so many blog post ideas but I also started full time at my job this month, which meant my usually Wednesday blogging at the café was no more.

I also had committed to drawing every day this month. Now this worked really well when it was blogging every day in June, but not so well with drawing. I guess for me, drawing takes a lot more mental energy than writing does. Writing is something I can do in my sleep. Drawing isn’t, and I’m usually asleep on the train when I could draw.

It wasn’t a total failure! I did get some drawings in, for better or worse. It even made me a friend on the train home one day when a woman struck up a conversation about art because she saw my pencil and pad out. :) I also created a little piece of art as a housewarming gift for my best friend. I printed out a quote and then sharpied up the whole thing with fun designs. She loved it :)

Moral of the story, when you work full time and have a boyfriend, you don’t feel like drawing every day. Womp.

 

 

Now what am I going to do this September? Good question. Since I have gotten into a relationship, it’s been interesting realizing that my priorities aren’t totally focusing on myself and my own projects anymore. I think to be successful, I need to find ways to incorporate Kieran into my monthly projects so I don’t have to cut him out for days to hit goals. I am so lucky to have a guy who supports my crazy need for running around inspired by everything. And I know he can help me actually accomplish instead of just running around willy nilly. I feel a brainstorming session coming on…

I will let you guys know when I figure out September. And also I owe you blog posts about random things too. SO MANY IDEAS, BLOG POSTS, POEMS ETC ETC, SO LITTLE TIME.
