I originally wrote this for Patreon on March 4th 2017. I no longer use Patreon and have replaced it with my website (here) but thought I would share some of my old blogs with you for FREE to show my appreciation for you visiting my website! <3
Wow, I can’t believe it’s March already! Time is flying for me, is it flying for you too? I’m not complaining though, every day is a day closer to spring and summer and warmth! This week’s sets were actually taken outside! We’ve had a few abnormally warm days here in NC so I got to take advantage and I went to a park that has this wooden amphitheatre and took a couple of self portrait sets for you! I wanted to take more photos but I had to hastily put my clothes back on when someone started walking in my direction. One day the general population will be open minded enough to not freak out over nipples and butts… I know that has to be coming in the future. It has to!
This week I wanted to share more personal stuff about me, especially since I’ve been doing the informational metaphysical posts these last few weeks. I really love talking and sharing information about metaphysical stuff (I hope you enjoy it too!) but it’s been a while since I’ve opened up to y’all. I barely share personal things on social media because I’m usually much more of a private person. However, I savor the opportunity to reveal more of myself to y’all – my supporters, my confidants, my friends. <3 Thank you for being here with me!
So, lately my life has been pretty hectic. I work a 40-hour work week, take aerial silks classes 2-3x a week, model for figure drawing sessions a couple times a month, I have a husband and roommate to spend time with, I try to find time for yoga and/or meditation, and I usually spend a weekend a month at my parents’ house for quality family time because they’re amazing and I don’t see them as often as I used to since I live further away from them now. I really appreciate and look forward to the time I set aside for myself to create for patreon – for YOU. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t spend near as much time being creative. It wouldn’t be a priority and I would end up with a lot of other important things that would take up my time before I could make time for art. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Being creative is my passion and what I essentially want to do as a career. You are helping me get one step closer to being creative full time, and that means so much. Haha I said I was going to open up to you and immediately started gushing about how amazing you guys are. <3 <3 <3
Anyway… (I’m going to add some metaphysical stuff in here, get ready!) so I’m a Sagittarius. I’ve always liked reading horoscopes in newspapers and magazines, but a couple of years ago me, my parents, sister, granddaddy, and a couple of my parents’ friends started getting together once a month to talk about astrology. There is SO MUCH to learn and it can get overwhelming because there’s not just the 12 signs, there’s all the houses and aspects and the different planets… we’ve barely touched the surface. BUT, learning more about the signs in particular has helped me get to know myself better and to know others better as well. My sister Kitty is a Gemini and essentially starts her life over every 2 years or so, it’s amazing… and it’s totally a Gemini trait to do that, they’re all about change. Sagittarians are lucky, cheerful, independent, free spirited, versatile, have a bad case of wanderlust, and are always searching for knowledge. This is 100% me. You know what my dream is? My biggest dream (as of now, I’m sure it will change and grow and evolve over time) is to buy a big giant work van, convert it into a camper van, and live in it while exploring the country on a lifelong road trip, creating, meeting new people, and learning as much as I can about as much as I can. Oh my GOSH y’all I just… I really dream about this every day. I am the luckiest person in the world, too, because Antisocialdisposition/my husband is so super supportive of me and says that even though he doesn’t want to live in a van for longer than a few weeks, he is totally fine with having a home base where he lives full time and I can go off on my merry adventures for a few weeks at a time. My goal is to buy that van by the end of this year and finish the build out before AD finishes his electrical engineering degree in Dec 2018. This is gonna happen, I’m going to make it happen.
What are your dreams for the future?
