Life Lately: March

96cb1731882d097cff8ac94ab6604607February just flew by! I can’t believe it’s March already, but I think Oregon hasn’t gotten the memo yet. I woke up this morning to snow. I like snow, but I’m ready for Spring, mostly because I want to wear flip flops again!  This is going to be a bit of a long post, a lot happened in the last month! So grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started!

Iggle Daily Journal: February 2017

I get a pat on the back for last month. I am terrible at completing “challenges” such as 30 day photo challenges or anything along similar lines. But I always give them a go (its like a bad addiction for me I guess), so last month I decided to try out the Iggle Daily Journal Challenge. Technically it would be my second time completing it, as I did it in January as well, but I didn’t share because I was trying to get use to doing it.

2016 New Year Goals

Happy-New-Year-2016-Wallpaper

I suck at making new years resolutions and keeping them. I am much better at setting a goal for myself. SO this year I have goals for reading, writing, and creating art.

Currently I’m on this path to rediscover things about myself that I love. Not meaning I don’t love myself, but life gets busy and you get distracted with binge watching on Netflix or no life-ing Fallout 4, and one can loose sight of one’s true self from time to time. So there are a few things that I feel are things at the core of my being, one is being creative, and to me that is in consuming and producing creatively.

2016 is going to be a great year! I plan on reading 40 books (at least) for the good reads challenge, on the weekends I have time dedicated to sketching, and during the weekdays I have a bit of time everyday (Tuesday through Friday) I’ve set aside for writing.

My Creative Writing Notebook for 2016

For writing I found this great twitter account that gives prompts every Thursday for an hour of sprint writing. But looking farther I  found the same account does an email every Tuesday through Friday with a prompt. So of course I signed up! The account is Michelle Greco, and her idea is called #MuseMoments and #MuseMomentSprints, and I am really enjoying it all so far.

I think its really good for me because I get a daily reminder to participate. I’m just like anyone else in having a very busy life, and reminders are fantastic.

 

So here’s to 2016, new goals & self love!
