...ways to challenge myself creatively
('cos we at still a chispita here are all about being creative)
fashion sketches (I've shared a little here, but it's a big part of my attempt to be more creative. I'm trying to teach myself the basics of fashion illustration so that I make my vague ideas something of a concrete reality.)
pick a random object or ingredient in my room and make something with it, whether cooking or sewing or crafting or what have you--tonight it's cream cheese and eggs :)
|I use my wall to save pictures, playbills, quotes and drawings that inspire me|
surrounding myself with cool things and people who do awesome things, creative or otherwise (my university is great for this--there's so much out there to involve yourself in and so many amazing people who do things I never even considered, which is all super inspiring)
...favorite comfort foods
beans and tortillas (I used to say I could live off them. I just might do that when I become a real person with a job and student loans to pay off)
microwave chocolate mug cake (it might be kind of a now thing, but I eat this more than I should...)
spaghetti, the way my mommy makes it ('cos there's something special about the way mommies make everything)
...ways to use a three-day weekend
(This was actually my weekend last weekend. As my ballet teacher likes to say, hidden agenda. :)
|look at the pretty little muffins posing on a bowl!|
a little bit of service (Saturday's adventure)
hitting the books (all weekend/Sunday's adventure, 'cos I'm still a full-time college student!) It may not be my favorite use of a day, but it sure beats the mid-week late nights because none of the studies got done on the weekend.
That said, I'm off to go read more French--this time a love-sick couple with strength of character issues (she has all the spine, he has none of it). Have a great week!
