I’m taking the weekend off.
I don’t know if this makes me a slacker or a woman who’s just grown into knowing what she needs, and in turn, decides to respect herself.
I hope it’s the latter.
I’m spending today and tomorrow analog. No more screen time for me. I’ve been feeling buzzy and angsty at the ends of my days, and I suspect it might be because of how connected I’ve been to the Internets.
Some people can stay firmly attached to the www without repercussion, but I can’t. It’s not in my nature.
So while I’m away, I’ll direct you to a few articles or people who might strike your fancy:
Check out Austin Kleone if you’re looking for art or writing inspiration. He’s a creative based in Austin, Texas, and he just published a journal to go along with his book, Steal Like an Artist. I wanted to choose just one link from his page, but I just couldn’t do it – there’s too much good stuff over there. Here’s a video to whet your whistle.
And, perhaps, head over to Design Sponge. I couldn’t get over the simplicity and on-pointness (notaword) of this article: (How to) Get Over Comparing Yourself to Other Creatives
And speaking of comparing – through the Write31Days Challenge, I came across Alison Wren. Her entire thirty-one days are based on just that – overcoming the comparison trap. Make a cup of tea, and take a few minutes to see what she’s put together.
And, if you’re feeling “bake-y”, might I suggest this single crust apple tart that’s easy enough for a weeknight? I’m salivating all over again, and I’m ready to try it.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
