No art this week. I’ve been on a mission to make my life better, and it’s taking up most of my time and energy. I just got back from my first shift delivering for OrderUp. Millie the Impala isn’t new enough to do Lyft, which is actually fine when I think about it. No cleaning… More Making Millie pay for herself.
This week, I changed my banner image on my personal Facebook to a Rupi Kaur quote: How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you And that led me, today, to look up some more quotes and – yes – just about everything she writes speaks to the cracks of your very… More art of the soul 8.21.16 / poetry
OK, so clearly I’m still ramping up to the 2 posts a week. I’ve been good about updating on Wednesdays up until this week, though. Moving forward, the plan is to schedule posts for Monday and Thursday mornings. In my defense, I’ve been job-interviewing like a demon. It’s not that I don’t like my current job.… More A late goals update.
Well, this week’s art that grabbed me was definitely, without question, the video collaboration between Salvador Dali and Walt Disney that I just found this week. Everyone who kept this from the world, and especially from me, go sit in the corner and think about your life choices. This shit is amazing. It goes without… More On Destino, fleeting romances, and creating change.
So! It’s been a few months! I can’t catch up in just one post. But I’m literally sitting in a workshop for computer coders who want to start blogging, right this moment. They’re all just starting their blogs, and I’m still in the midst of processing the last few days, and… well. There we are.… More Changes and oh so many feels
11:39 am I’ve already begun to regret my decision to liveblog this. I’ve dumped every item of clothing, literally every, except my winter gear which is already stored in a tidy fashion, onto my bed. My Pinterest inspired floor bed, which isn’t looking very pinteresty right now. As an added bonus, a lot of other… More The Great Closet Purge of 2016
I am looking at one of these on Saturday. If it sucks, I just won’t buy it. But between tax return and some old savings bonds, I can totally swing a Mazda van. I’ve researched likely problems and will look it over like a hawk. May even Skype with my stepdad during the viewing. The… More Operation Rad Glamper Diva might be a go!
Having done some research on other people’s blogs, who use their minivans as campers or even choose to live there full-time (!) I’m leaning toward a Grand Caravan or a Sienna. It’d be maybe 4 grand tops for the conversion if I really went wild, versus 6 thousand for a Subaru Forester and 10 thousand… More A thing I’ve been strongly considering.
I came to a conclusion that means I have no alternative but to dramatically change a large amount of the content of this blog going forward: I don’t actually care about fashion anymore. I mean, as an art form, I always will. I will probably always have a fantasy-wardrobe Pinterest board. I still love going… More Forever restless.
This was a January thing, but whatev. I want to use the prompts that remain, so I’m gonna. Here’s day 14: Write an ode about the unending loyalty or the curious antics of a furry friend. Did you learn something about yourself or the world from your pet this year? Maybe you learned a lesson… More #thinkkit day 14: ain’t no scaredy cat
