a love letter to summertime

14 August, 2019

I stopped writing for a couple of months because I was feeling particularly uninspired and summer was what I needed to realign myself and focus again on doing the things that I really want to do. So I'm back with a lot of photography, some dreamy poetry, and a short piece about why summer has always been my favorite time of year. I've also just watched 500 Days of Summer and realize how much my last post "unbalanced love" was me predicting what that movie was going to be about before I even watched it. It changed me a little bit and I'm trying to be less of a hopeless romantic and more of a . . slightly more realistic . . . romantic. Let's go with that.


unbalanced love

16 July, 2019

Many people consider there to be more than one type of love. Love we have for friends or family, love that is romantic, love that we have for ourselves. When we love, we do so recklessly because we cannot help the way that we love. It is the fire that burns forever and fuels us. Sometimes you love people because they love you back and sometimes you love people because you know they cannot love you back. Sometimes it is unbalanced and sometimes this balance is what gets you up in the morning. I'm holding onto it anyway and trying to find my way through.

June In Poetry

08 July, 2019

As often as I journal, I write poetry. Usually it is a collection of my thoughts from journaling that I just turn into rhymes and verse, but it makes me feel really free. I don't follow too much structure or follow any type of rule and I can write life as it happens to me as I see it. I keep a record of the same things just in poetry and I like that just a couple of lines can hold so much meaning. This is the month of June in poetry, feel free to add on or write your own. 


12 Ways To Bring More Art Into Your Life

28 May, 2019

Art! Is! Everywhere!  It's your clothes, your shoes, in the websites you visit, the advertisements you see. It's on TV, on food packaging, books, the house you live in, and your mother's garden. Art is everywhere and we need it to survive. I think a lot of people take for granted how often they use their right-brain everyday and the way that it impacts our lives.

Any form of self expression is art and I want people to know how to use it to make their lives better. It's a useful skill for every person in that way that it allows us to be individuals without necessarily having to share it and prove something. It also can be a personal thing that you use to just free your mind and take more control in your life. Since it is summer, this a bit of inspiration for the upcoming warmer months and things to do when you are looking for more creativity. Here are 12 ways to bring more art into your life and take a step back without taking a step away.

a short list of things I think will make me happy if I buy them

27 April, 2019

We buy a lot of things that we don't need everyday and collectively I think it's a bit of a problem that we have so much stuff. I am constantly trying to turn over a new leaf and just be a better person and too often this involves thinking that I need to buy new things to make that happen. This post is a little bit about the myth that new things will make you happier and that participating in capitalism is the only way to achieve what you want. I'm also not going too much into detail but I know everyone often does things without considering the consequences and even when we do it's hard to break away from the cycle so this is me trying to distance myself from that a little bit.

I'm encouraging you to look at your spending habits and maybe some things you have but don't need. Think about what you hoped those things would do for your life and how you can maybe change without them or with what you already have. Will it make you happier?
