I’m a college graduate!! :D woohoo
Growing up I’ve always had an attraction to art- in all forms. Music, theater, visual, etc. As a kid I rarely went a day, if even that, without doing something creative. Drawing was my usual. When I got older I would get in trouble for drawing on my school assignments. Haha. Then I went to college for a degree in art, and veered away from my passion. Being forced to think certain ways, to draw certain things… It was strenuous on my own creative energy. I had one specific professor that had me wanting to take a break from my own personal drawings because his drawing instructions were so ridiculous. In the long run, I did. I stepped back from art. I needed a break. I went from sketching everyday to not touching my sketchbook AT ALL. Then life got really hard and I lost that spark, that creative energy that fueled my artwork altogether. A scary thought for me. I let it take over. I told myself that all the true talents were putting themselves out there by my age. That why try now, you’re behind. What a terrible way to think!! I’m done with that now. I’m only 21. It would be insane not to get back into art. It would be wasteful of me to set aside the gift God gave me. Lately I’ve been tracing my way back through things that used to inspire me, music, a beat, a feeling… It’s the desire of wanting to express emotion that drives an artist. When I see the pure passion, the indescribable love someone has for their creative work, it just sets me on fire. So amazing!! Today, watching some of Cobus Potgeiter’s drum covers reminded me of this. He is inspiring to watch, just to see how much he loves drumming. So cool. Sometimes I think that you have to take a break and step back from something to know how you really feel about it. It just took me a while to realize I still need art in my life.
Now I have to try and pick up where I left off. Got to dust of that sketch pad. Got to remember to draw everyday. I’m going to get back into art.
If your coworker invites you to go duck hunting with him, Is it love? haha, just kidding. I do love a good old country boy though.
I’ve always wondered what causes a person to be attracted to certain traits. They say girls with good relationships with their fathers tend to seek men of similar quality. Personally true for me. I like guys who know their weapons, who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, men who will take the lead. My dad. My mom on the other hand has a theory that me, being the shy innocent good girl, and being forced to sit next to the troublemakers in grade school as an example has caused some sort of familiarity or attraction to them. Either way, I say opposites attract. They complement each other.
There’s my little thought of the moment.
Dad, when you put your arms around me, I was home. Miss you more than I could ever say. xoxox
Gotta be brave and not let anxiety or fear hold me back. You always said I could do anything i put my mind to, and I’ll do what ever it takes to make sure Im a daughter you would be proud of.
