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. 🙂

Along With Holidays, Creativity Breaks Anew

With the air growing brisker by the day, we find the holidays creeping up on us faster every day. That being said, we have a lot on our plates to prepare for. Halloween is next week and then we must start preparing for Thanksgiving.

Last year, we couldn’t do a whole lot. I was hanging by a thread at Starbucks because of a huge miscommunication and barely getting enough hours to pay all our bills. It’s pretty crazy all the stress that your body can manage, because looking back now, I don’t know how I handled it.

But this year, this year is different. It will be our last holiday in Ohio and we would like to make the most of it that we can. While we are ultra-ready to get out of this state, we still have people here that mean a lot to us and always will. This holiday will be the perfect time to show them that so we are planning a big Thanksgiving dinner for everyone. Not only that, but it will keep me busy. I like being busy and I enjoy planning things. It will keep my mind off the anticipation of the move.

Then, come December, I get to go spend some time with my family. It will be nice to finally have a holiday with everyone involved. I think my favorite part of this whole thing won’t be the gifts or anything like that, but the night of Christmas Eve when everything is quiet and it’s nothing but you, your family, the smell of pine needles and pumpkin pie and, this year, the added smell of baby powder from the new addition to the family. The anticipation is enough to make a person go crazy, so I spend my days planning, researching, Christmas shopping, and just staying busy in everything that I can.

My creativity has also been very active, blossoming, and changing. Every piece of art that I create is another coal in the fire to my ideas that continue to blaze and become brighter. Pumping my adrenaline more with every piece I finish. I am currently working on a set of photos which is beginning to lead into other ideas for later projects. I am going to allow myself enough time to gather my creativity, thoughts, and ideas and plan a release date of my content so that I can provide a nice range of work to show. Currently thinking of the end of January. I will release a more exact date in the next month or so.

In the mean time, I will leave you with a bit of a teaser photo:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with what site I am affiliated with, this is a promotional shot I did for my boyfriend’s website, www.gonzopolis.com. He is currently rehashing his Gravemakers podcast starring he and his fellow graveyard buddy just riffing on the everyday drone of working as graveyard shift clerks. If you haven’t heard of it, you should definitely check it out.

I get a feeling that we’re going to bring in 2013 with a bang. I’m so ready.
