Moving, chaos or aventure?

Whew! Hello  all I feel like it has been forever since I last posted. However I made it to the other side of a very busy and eventful week. A couple weeks ago I shared that my roommate for three years was going to move out and another one was moving in… what I didn’t…

Cleaning and Creativity

“Mmmm Pancakes” was my very first thought yesterday morning, as I crawled out of bed. So  my  soon to be roommate and I  went out in the rain  to to pick up syrup and pancake mix. I love how taking time to clean and organize a house can make you  lighter. This week  I came to…

Lesson in blogging

Tonight I learned  some important lessons in the blogging world: A. Type up your work separately. SAVE THEM. B. Take a snap shot of the media you posted. C.  Do not work on your blog from two different locations. I have the WordPress application on my computer however,  I usually forget and update directly from…

The Frustration of Focus

  Tonight’s blog post is free of pictures or anything frilly. Tonight it is just words filling a page. Focus:  a central point, as of attraction, attention or activity. I love to write. However, I lack focus in all ways. It takes work to get myself  to stop making my to-do lists,  to not get…

Happy 4th of July!

The best holidays are spent with friends and family,  this weekend Sara and I decided that even one day was worth it. So Saturday morning after work we drove 5  hours to  spend the day with friends and Family out on the lake near Outing, Mn. It was a beautiful day, sunny and 70 degrees. We spent…

a little bit of change, and a little bit of busy.

This month I will have been living in the same apartment for four years, and I just found out that my roommate of 3 years will be moving out. She decided to move out to help another friend which conveniently is also helping out my friend who has been apartment hunting all summer. Therefore, this…

Just a week.

I have to admit coming back and getting into my normal work week was hard, after last week everything felt very mundane . I was  even a bit nervous to go  back to the daycare. I only work two days out of the week so two weeks in I still felt pretty new.I  was afraid taking…

The “Scenic” Route

  The past few nights I have been staying up later then everyone else. One night I was talking to a friend and the past two nights I stayed up on my own. I have found myself going into pondering mode. I do this anytime there is a transition coming up because I like to look…

Into the Woods

To get the full effect I ecourage you to follow this link and listen to Take a load off Annie, while reading the  rest of the post.. put it on repeat if you must. I am currentely sitting in my parents house, way up north in the middle of the woods, sipping whiskey while listening to my…

" Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? "

Last year I had wanted to start up a blog and began preparing posts. However, I decided not to because with school and work I would not have been very good at keeping up with it. Today I was dabbling with watercolors and remembered something I had written up last October during my beginning stages…

Internet and Creativity

Every summer I get excited about learning a new craft or digging deeper into some that I already know. I was realizing this morning  while catching up on reading in my online course on Internet and Identity, how much internet has opened up learning opportunities, and has actually helped me to become more creative.
