Things Are Changing
If you haven’t noticed, my activity on here is at an all-time low. No designs, no blogs, no videos, just a collection of last year’s work to look through over and over and here’s why. Firstly, life. I’m just going to leave that at that because I don’t think I need any explanation for someone to know exactly what I mean and because of that I don’t want to talk about it. What do I do want to talk about is the real reason why I’ve been existing and doing things, but never sharing any of it. My ideas on why I created a website has shifted to become blurred in the middle of what is and “what it should be”.
When creating this website, I wanted it to be a place where I can create anything and share it. The things that bring joy into my life and that I get excited to work on every day, but I began to set expectations. I told myself, “This is an art blog. You create art and designs and you share it with your friends, family, and employers and that’s how it works.” But that worked completely against what I set out to do, which was whatever I wanted. Last year art was exactly what brought so much joy into my busy days with tons of art classes and students and teachers to inspire me and though I know one day I’ll go back to creating all those things, right now I don’t. Last year was draining, this year had some major shifts, and I found myself falling into something new to love and grow in.
As I’m sure many can understand, sometimes my interests can feel a bit like a yo-yo. They’re always there, but at times I feel burned out on one thing and my passions starts for another and when that shift happened this year I was filled with anger over the lack of consistency instead of excitement for what I get to do next. Now, if you’ve made it this far I’m sure you’re tired of reading through the very deliberate suspense of what I’ve been up to so here it is. Health and Fitness. I’ve grown into learning more about my body, staying fit, and eating clean and this has always been important to me, but lately it’s bled into my free time which means it must be important.
My website will have to go under a few design changes to accommodate for this new passion, but it’ll be well worth it. The most exciting thing, however, is not the work I’ll create, but the wall that’s been broken of what I have to be. Just because creating workouts, playlists, and food doesn’t fit into my original definition of what creators do doesn’t mean it’s not creating which was and is my only goal of this website. I hope you enjoy what is coming next.
