Don’t worry. I’m not trying to make that phrase a thing. I am back at it again… it being blogging. I was approaching this blogging experience the wrong way before. In order to make this blog successful, it can’t be a chore, it has to be something I look forward to do.
It has been a busy few months personally so, I definitely needed some time away to refresh my mind and come back ready to write/create. I decided about 2 weeks ago that I would take a hiatus and try again once I came back from a well needed family vacation to Mrytle Beach (which was very relaxing minus the travel time!). I continued posting pictures on my Instagram account in the meantime. Before taking my hiatus, I took time to indulge in two of my passions; drawing and painting. It’s hard to find time for enjoyable activities in the hustle and bustle of work, life, and being a parent. I’m glad I forced myself to think creatively and put pencil to sketchbook paper with the aid of Sketchbook Skool’s, “A Drawing a Day“ prompt list. It had been way too long since I drew from imagination. I was proud of myself and love the sketches I came up with from the one word prompts (will post later).
I didn’t complete the whole month. If you are like me who has a bajillion thoughts that creep up in your mind, you’ll understand.
I’m looking forward to the next few months. I have goals I’d like to complete by year’s end and in the new year, personally and career-wise.
I was going to try to squeeze in studying quickly for the Interior Design Fundamentals Exam (IDFX) section of the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam, but decided against it because money and logic.
I didn’t really have the money for the application fee and exam fee (see GIF above) and I didn’t think it was a good idea to spend all that money, speed through studying and more than likely fail the exam. I’m planning to take the exam next time around in April so, I’ve been reading and note-taking. (Wish me luck!)
Anywho, I’m back and I’m hoping to pour out some interesting and content we can all relate to!
