My sketch for today. She is one of my favorite style bloggers, Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I want to meet her one day. She is such an inspiration and all the goodies she cooks makes me drool... and I love her style. Another week flies by! Another great one too! Since having this new job I've been pretty impressed with the atmosphere of the company and its professionalism. You must be wondering why I'm saying that lol, but in case you didn't know, the fashion industry is crazy. It is actually like what you see on Project Runway.. and I think it's sooo stupid. It's why I decided to take a year long break. I was around crazy people every day and it ate up my energy even though I had the tools and knowledge to block negative people. I was just falling apart. And there wasn't enough of me to intend for this type of prevention. I was a robot with no heart. But now that I'm back I've been enjoying the design team I'm working with. This week I experienced my first company meeting among 500 co-workers which took place at the Beverly Hilton which was pretty impressive. That whole event might as well have been a company holiday party because it was just so fancy! I loved it. There was a runway show for the new direction of the brand which looked pretty cool. I can't wait to own some!
I had a fancy coffee and I don't like coffee.
I had a couple of minutes to spare in the morning after I made myself some green tea. I think this'll be a new routine. :) I've been illustrating Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. I love her style and the way she poses. She's perfect for practicing.
I've been so tired this entire week but I made an effort to attend my second six-sensory class. It's pretty intense and my teacher says it's going to be like boot camp now moving forward. I'm excited.
Great moments this week. My energy is low right now because I haven't had much sleep since I've been trying to adjust to my new sleeping schedule. Sleeping in is one thing I do miss. I'll admit that I did have my moments during the week where I was unsure why I was working again, but every time that happened I pulled out my sketchbook and sketched away or opened one of my happy books that my amazing friends got me for my birthday to remind myself not to over think things, and just keep practicing what I love doing. And I would also find things to make me laugh until I cried. And on the weekends I'm playing with some yoga moves. Playing is important. Ask Albert Einstein.
And lastly, I'm so happy for my mom. I love her and my sisters so much and after dealing with 3 years of trying to piece ourselves back together after her devastating split up with my dad, the divorce is now finalized. I'm so grateful. She made it without losing her mind because she had me and my sisters and my aunt to balance her out. No pills, medication, and all that stupid shit. She's a fuckin fighter. I love her.
Thanks mama for your continued and loving support <3
