Mood board for something I’m working on.

July was a fantastic month for me, even if it did include several weeks spent completely bedridden with strep throat. I was able to spend a lot of time at home with my family, as well as finish both seasons of Orange is the New Black. I ate a lot of pizza and cherries, developed a few more freckles, and enjoyed many sunset drives to the beach. August is already shaping up to be just as good, if not better.

June ended a while ago, but a bout of strep throat kept me from posting my favourite pictures. Admittedly, I did very little aside from hosting a series of dinner parties for my birthday. Hopefully July is more eventful.

May moved much too fast for me. I can’t (I refuse) to believe that June starts tomorrow and half the year has passed already! A lot happened this month and I’m very grateful to have been able to spend some time with my family and friends.

April is finally over!!! I am incredibly grateful school is done and even happier I finished the semester only relatively scathed (I think, I hope). This was a very difficult semester for me, except I didn’t realize it until it had passed. I have a lot of things to reflect and work on by way of design in the coming months. 
I have a lot of goals for the summer, a combination of hard work and new learning/life experiences. I’m hoping to be more vigilant in documenting the more interesting aspects. For now, I am enjoying my new found and highly anticipated freedom the best way I know how; eating and being with friends and family (preferably together).

A public service announcement for ADHD that I created for a crossover illustration/photography project! I wanted to play off the old commercial “This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs!” and show a snapshot of the mind at any given moment. A public service announcement for ADHD that I created for a crossover illustration/photography project!

Here are a few of my favourite Instagram posts from the last week! Very inspired by the spring colours, hopefully some warm weather is on the way. 
This week was particularly good, considering the lingering deadlines ahead. I’ve managed to stay relatively close to a good work schedule (as in, I don’t want to crawl in bed and cry thinking about everything I have yet to do). I’ve received some really great letters, emails, and messages from fantastic people (sometimes I tear up a little thinking of how grateful I am), and I hope once school is finished to give each of my pen pals the attention they deserve. Additionally, a few satisfying FaceTime and coffee shop chats have aided my very high spirits as I enter my last (!!!) week of second year classes. 
This week I watched the finale of How I Met Your Mother (so many feelings), obsessed over these few songs (and this album), started reading this book, and drank this wine. 
Heading into the weekend with very good vibes.

“There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether or not they know algebra or can analyze literature.”
— William Upski Wimsatt
