Break is well underway, and well, it doesn’t really feel like it! For the past couple years I’ve filled my breaks with traveling to visit friends and family across the country—and then I come back to school and feel more stressed than ever. This year I made a pact with myself (you do this too, right?) and I said: “Kelsey, stay at home, no matter what. Relax. Binge watch television. Go on long walks and enjoy the sunshine. Juice.” So I’m doing precisely that. After this past quarter of at-home working and schooling, I feel like I’m just kind of continuing on how it’s been. I picked up a few projects, and am working on a rebrand so that I can be all shiny and new when I head to alt come January. It’s nice to finally put some time into working on personal projects. And that large canvas that I’ve been talking about? Well that’s getting painted over in the next week. I can’t wait to get all these things off my to-do list. Speaking of my to-do list, I have an exciting post coming your way tomorrow that will show you how I’ve been making it through my schedule over the past month, and how you can get in on the action too! This month is a little giveaway crazy, but ’tis the season I suppose—and who doesn’t love free stuff??
Well I’ve made it to twenty weeks of straight blogging folks! Color studies was my first weekly endeavor here at Pinegate Road, and it’s been this kind of secret-like tracker that I’ve been keeping, just to see how far I get with this. I honestly didn’t think I would even make it past a month, but this inspiration blogging has really lit me up, and I don’t know if I’d be able to stop if I tried! It’s been really encouraging to see how doing this has inspired my work, and has lead me into directions I never thought I could go. It’s so nice having a place to share everything I care about beyond the classroom, my boyfriend, my close friends….or my mama.
