Well it’s been a while. It’s been a LONG while. Once again life is trying to surpass me and I’m trying to catch up with it. Today I finally got catching the bus under control. Last week I missed my transfer because I went to the wrong stop but then I met a really nice lady who helped me catch the next bus. Caught that bus then missed my stop. Anyway, this week I caught the right bus but it was late so by the time I got to my transfer, it left! But I remembered from the week before that a 2nd bus was coming so I took that one, and got to Cook Arts Center (where I volunteer on Tuesdays) on time. It felt so good to catch the bus and to actually know what to do and where to go. I want it to come naturally to me before the semester ends. Traveling alone gives you a sort of freedom and liberty. I’m hoping to find people who take the same route as me and maybe get to know them and even write their stories here. That would be nice. Well I must go! I will promise to write more….I think.

The hardest battle you will ever have to fight is between who you are now and who you want to be.
Busy as a bee
I have entered into one of the busiest weeks of the semester. I have 2 interviews this week, rehearsals every night, 2 performances this weekend, a reunion to go to, assignments to start and finish, relationships to juggle, and countless other things. But it feels good to be busy. You know what, I’ve just been generally feeling good lately. The last week or so have been filled with the best and the worst times. Good friends, good times, reconciliation, great praise and worship, laughter, baked goods, late nights, February has been packed and it’ll already be over on Friday. For such a little month, it sure has been packed. February is usually dull and drab but this year it’s different.
I’ve been feelin real good of late. Last weekend was just a flurry of craziness, dancing, good friends, and good times. Today I went to a concert and it was absolutely amazing. I danced the entire time. It felt so good to let out after being cooped up for so long inside a classroom or dorm room. On Sunday I told myself that this would be a good week but I didn’t believe myself 100%. I kinda just made the statement like a shot in the dark. Like with a question mark. And I’m thinking that if a Monday can feel like a Friday, this week will be good. It’s supposed to be pretty warm this week and I’m just really excited about that. I took a leap of faith and now it’s getting me places. Adios amigos.
An Unexpected Event
Well guys. It’s happening. Roommate problems. Didn’t think it would but it is. For some reason I thought I had lucked out especially when I heard the horror stories of other girls on my floor. But somehow, when something is going smoothly for so long, there has to be an interruption. A smack of reality. I’ve erased a description to this “situation” twice now and I don’t think I’m going to go into detail but I’ll leave whoever reads this post with this: Feeling excluded has to be one of the worst things ever. Especially when you put in effort to be included. I have definitely been feeling this over the last couple weeks. But yesterday, my best friend texted me telling me how much she loved me and it could not have been at a better time. I am so grateful for the friends God has given me and the fact that they love me so much. I love my roommate as well and I know that we can work through this and when we do, our friendship will be a lot stronger. I’ll be writing a much happier post later on today so stay tuned! (those of you who read these things)

I started this project by being inspired by Jamie C. Moore's work. She photographed her daughter who dressed up as five amazing women who made their mark in history. And so, I decided to do the same and make it around women of the arts.
As much as we are surrounded by art in every aspect of our life, the arts I believe doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. From my personal experience at home, the idea of a career in the arts wasn’t a “real” job and was told it would get me nowhere…especially as a women. I wanted to help open up people’s minds and expand the term of what art is. Art isn’t just painting or photography but it can be everything from music to writing to performing. There are tons of unbelievable people in the arts but I chose these eight influential ladies who I feel can empower young girls everywhere.
