It’s been a while since I filled you guys in on my adventures, hasn’t it?
I had writer’s block…sometimes I have no idea what to write about or how to start a blog post and poof, weeks go by and my email has been filling up with concerned emails while my blog starts growing cobwebs.
Thank you to everyone checking up on me! That means a lot!
As most of you know, I was taking four summer classes so I was busy with that. I kicked ass and got 2 A’s and 2 B’s.
Right after summer B ended, I drove home to spend the remainder of my summer with my parents, friends and sister.
What I don’t understand is why I am so freaking lazy/unmotivated/unproductive/ect. when I’m home. I don’t want to do anything but lie around the house all day and be a bum. I realize its summer and I’m entitled to a little relaxing but I get really upset with myself. I need to feel like I’m being productive or I feel useless. Nonetheless, I'm stoked to be back at school!
I can’t live at home after I graduate. I just can’t, nor do I want to. I have so much more drive living on my own. My home town has nothing left for me. A divine miracle (a fine arts scholarship to grad school) needs to happen. My parents already told me their willing to let me move back home, rent free for a year. As blessed as I am to have my parents as a Plan B, I envision myself attending a grad program somewhere new, filled with new faces and opportunities.
So here’s my mindset on how to make it happen:
1. Start selling art on Etsy.com/Artwalks to raise money
2. Once I raise the money, hire a graphic designer to personalize my website for me
3. Begin advertising myself as an artist on my website! And selling my art of course
4. Produce an amazing portfolio to get accepted into a good grad school, one in particular
5. My dream would be to get accepted into California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
Living in San Francisco, going to grad school and working part-time would be absolutely amazing. Even better, my parents love it there as well. They travel to San Fran at least once a year so if I got accepted they would come visit me! It would be a win, win. Plus, Glide Memorial Church is located in San Fran and I want to become a member of that church. I listen to their church sermons online every Sunday since I can’t find a church I like here. Living in San Francisco would be magical...
I have a lot of praying and hard work ahead of me to shape my future and get to where I want to be.
Here’s an Upper Room excerpt that I found intriguing'Jesus told his followers to seek God first. Then everything else in their lives would come together properly. Many Christians try substitutions and shortcuts, or they get the timing wrong – all of which brings frustration. My friend’s two rules might apply to Christian life. Begin with the essentials: Put God first. Then read and follow God’s book carefully. ‘
