“Your 20’s are your ‘selfish’ years. It’s a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you. Tinker with shit, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground.”
- Kyoko Escamilla
No not in that means, but getting busy making art. This summer, just like past summers, I come up with these cool, even extreme ideas for art projects. I say I am going to do them during the summer when I am not stressing out with school. Of course, I don’t do most of them or at least don’t complete them.
Now, I am going to crank out as much art as I can while still putting time and effort into each piece (especially cuz i have grown a dislike for artists saying they made something just cuz they liked it).3 years ago • 0 notes
At the end of May, my sister graduated from high school. I was sitting there during the ceremony when the class president starts a speech with all the cliches meant for graduations and completing high school and moving on to bigger things. Instead of zoning out, I actually listened and came to a realization-
I have let these 2 years go by too fast and have forgotten to live in the moment. All the talk in college is about how you need to prepare for the future.
FUTURE —-such a big, loomy word. It’s an initimidating word, especially to a soon-to-be college junior.
Yes, you need to prepare for the future, but I need to remind myself to live in the present more. In the middle of the semester my thoughts are like such- what am I doing next weekend?, I got a test next week, I got a test due in 4 days, etc, etc, etc.
You miss out on the fun you are having in the moment when you think more about what’s coming next.3 years ago • 1 note
