Orientation was pretty tiring and it was only two hours. Why do I feel so tired? Need to start getting used to early mornings and interacting with other human beings now.

This has to be like one of the best songs I have listened to in a long time. It’s just a fresh breath of air.
"I think that’s just it. The fearlessness of falling in love for the very first time, the boundless trust you deal out, the ideals of happy ever after. I think you only experience all that once. Thereafter, you’re careful. You fear rejection, trust comes so much harder and happy ever after becomes only something you can hope for. I don’t ask to be your first love, how could I fight fate or time or circumstance. But what I ask is in spite of being careful, in me you find it in you to be fearless, trusting, and in me you find your happy ever after."-Your Daily Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)
"I have all these amazing ideas but I have yet to find an outlet that perfectly explains my thoughts."-howimetmusic (via psych-facts)
I think it’s kind of amazing. I haven’t been able to find the motivation to draw but I just did this morning. And even though it was nothing extravagant (I only drew on index cards, haha) it was really calming and then out of the blue, I get a call.
I’m really nervous and excited for this opportunity to work. Though I’ve hit that point in the summer where I don’t really care about going out or how much food I’m eating, I’m glad that this would be a good chance to keep me moving.. haha. All my experiences/jobs were school-based and so I am honestly worried because this will be my first job outside of school.
During my huge artist’s block, I really started re-thinking about what I should be pursuing. As an artist/designer, I believe that being self-motivated is very important… that and passion. And I know I’ve been spewing that art is my passion all my life and yet here I was not even picking up a paintbrush or committing myself to finish an art piece I said I would. I felt insecure about my abilities/talent and not much was inspiring me. But to have all this happen today, I feel really good. Reassured that my job is at a place that can help me stick to my passion, and pleased that they see me as capable. I am nervous because since it’s something that I have no experience in and it will be a challenge. but I’m just going to have to face it and do my best.
Haha, these jitters though. I’m sure I’ll laugh at this when I’m older.
