Good morning/afternoon all!
I hope you all had a good weekend! I had plans to do things around the house….and really that just did not happen. My allergies are kicking my butt and I felt pretty damn blah most of the weekend from it.
I did hang out with Caterpillar, things have been on the up and up lately and that makes me happy. I can only do my best and see where it goes, right? AKA: baby steps with a guard up. He is a newer photographer and he moved into a new studio space this weekend! This is huge as he has only been “in the game” if you will – for a little over a year. I am so proud of him and his progress that my heart was exploding. I think once he builds his client list, he will be in a much happier space. I feel creative minds can suffer when they are in a mundane job full time. So here is to him and hoping that these good vibes keep going.
Don’t worry, I took some time for me too! Some self care time…with some pizza. I ignored my phone unless necessary. Unplugging-ish is so nice from time to time. I set specific alerts for the important people, so I only looked when I felt the need.
I also picked up a sketch pad for the first time in years, to truly give it a real shot again. It was Nerve-racking. It clearly it is one of those skill sets that is a “use it or lose it” case because it was stressful, I hated the first line and I erased more than I sketched haha. I used to paint and draw sooo much and I just let it fall to the wayside -ugh. One of my goals is to try to build it back up again – we will see and I will of course share that process with you!
So some news – today marks 5 years at my job. I am not sure if I am really happy about it but I did get an increase, so yay!? I treated myself to a fabulous caffeinated beverage from Starbucks…I have a new name today as you can see from my featured image – Ratrina?? Something happened with that “K” is all I am saying haha! I have also been Catrina, which I let slide. I have also been Casandra. Not sure how I feel about this new one though haha.
NOW…on to you!!! Tell me how your weekend went! I will also accept any ramblings, rants, random facts etc that you may have!
Thank you for reading!
