Just a Mouse Running Her Clock

Boy, do I wish I wrote more. I feel like I’ve been away for so long that it’s hard to gather the words together.

My next duty is my own personal well-being, financially, mentally, and physically. All of which, unfortunately, is fuelled by financial stability. But fortunately, for us, we’re smart enough to know what we can handle and with the plans for the next few months, each week is going to be better than the last. With that falling into place, I can fairly easily balance everything else a little bit at a time.

The more and more all of these things fall into place, the easier it’s going to be for us to work creatively. This is something I have been trying to work on for a couple of years now and I finally feel the creativity coming back. I had to learn through several trials that I cannot be limited to one medium. My ideas lie varyingly within different mediums depending upon environment, life, and creativity. I am currently working on some drawings and styles and trying to brush up on my skills. Hopefully I can get things geared back up and start posting artwork for sale within the next couple of months. The photo beneath is a recent drawing of mine which I am using as my own fuel for more creations.

The past several months have been intense times. Various dramatic situations, one right after the other seemed to fall in our path, but gradually as I come to myself and take a step back and take a bigger look at each situation, the path I should take isn’t always as simple as it is clear. Ultimately I have to remember my own well-being and sanity above everything else in my life. If someone tries to stand in the way of the path I am trying to take for myself, I have no choice but to eliminate them. I cannot let ties, blood nor bond, stand in my way. It’s just that sometimes blood is harder to remove than anything, but if it’s going to stand in the way of where my life is going and not be supportive, what choice do I have?

 

Meanwhile, also within the next couple of months have several events and opportunities to look forward to. I simply have to keep my head up and working. My entire life feels like a clock being run by a mouse. The only way to keep the gears going is to keep parts lined up and maintained and to continue running.  I like to find different checkpoints to look forward to in order to keep my momentum and keep my gears going at high speed so that I don’t get burnt out.

So, as of late, my upcoming checkpoints are:

August 22: Cornetto Trilogy
September 22: Tegan and Sara concert and bestie tattoo
October 31: Halloween duhhh

AND THEN, the holidays!!!

Can’t Stop Us Now

3 months into our move and I have to say that I feel like we’ve been here much longer.

Not because it’s going by slow, simply because of everything that we’ve gotten done in just those three months. Sam and I both keep incredibly busy, he with his comedy and I with everything that I’ve been doing, which is more than a few things. lol

 

Sam is already working on several paid gigs. He has done some travelling here and there to get more experience under his belt, while continuing work on his website. He has several ideas for filming here soon. As soon as we get some technical issues out of the way. For those of you new to this and are not familiar with my fiance’s work, he is a comedian based out of Knoxville, Tennessee. His primary focus is his personal comedy website based around the duality of human existence; we all have a darker side of ourselves which we generally keep hidden behind our learned filter in every day life. His comedy separates the two and personifies that dark side as an entirely separate character. His concept collaborates, not only with myself as an artist, but with several of the other local comedians as well as a few select critics and personalities along the way.
The website is located here if you are interested:

(be looking for more work in the near future 🙂 )

As for myself, I have been doing a handful of photography packages here and there. This is temporary seeing as my computer is old as dirt and can only do so much. This, however, will be fixed here shortly seeing as we are investing in new equipment and programs for the both of us very soon.

I also began dancing again, this is not only a passion of mine, but also incredible therapy and exercise.
I am also meditating fairly regularly. With everything that I am trying to do at once in my life, I need a balance to help keep me sane and moving. I am also maintaining quite an impressive diet as of late. Low sugar, low fat, high fiber, little to no artificial sweetener or additives, and some occasional wheat. This is more of a lifestyle choice for myself than it is a diet, as well as something that I’ve wanted to do for myself for a long time. At this point it is simply a matter of maintaining a focused head about it. Seeing as I have health issues that will only become worse if I don’t stick with it, this is a major motivation for me.

I feel like the meditation and dieting are doing exactly what I need them to do, which is to help keep me focused and open minded. There is such a major difference in being here compared to Ohio. I am actually motivated to keep moving. Time doesn’t exist, just what you get done with in that period of time.

I cannot wait to see where we are a few months from now. 🙂
