Dipping my toes back in.....

Good afternoon to all,

It's been a while since I've been back to actually do a blog and trying to get myself back into the way I used to be about blogging. My mind has been clogged up with so much mess so I'm trying to learn new ways in regards to make my mind relax and not stress out so much. I'm trying to get back into loving me and learning more about what I can do and become.

I'm still enjoying my photography and learning about it. I feel like I hit road blocks in regards to creativity. I'm still so inspired by what I see other people create but then get caught up in my own doubts and disappointments that I wouldn't be able to be as good as the people that I admire. Yet I keep telling myself it takes time. Something I'm just not fond of when I want instant gratification.

My shea butter business is doing ok as well. It has it hills when it gains momentum and then it will slide back down. I'm ok with how things are going right now given the fact that when I sit back and look at everything I'm doing. I don't mind when I have pockets of time to just chill. I mean I work a full time job, I have two side businesses, and I'm also in school. I would say my plate is quite full.

Normally my summers are not really eventful but this one I had the opportunity to go to Washington DC for a week. I had a blast but I definitely earned that trip with the work I had put in chaperoning the students that went. I swear summer goes by so damn quickly. It's over within a blink of an eye.

This fall I will be starting a film photography class which will start in 2 weeks. I plan on transferring back to UMSL to finish my degree which I decided would be in Media Studies. I really would like to learn about videography. It's been something on my mind for quite some time. I took a Graphic Design class this past spring and that was a lot of fun. Hopefully I can practice and learn more about that as well.

I have a stack of books that I need to read. I used to be such a book-a-holic and want to get back into that. Books about getting to know yourself and how to pretty much mentally unfuck yourself. My brain feels fried most of the time and I need to learn how to do a hard-reset so I can get back to getting myself focused and back on track. It's been a long going battle.
