In the meantime of pursuing lifelong and longterm goals; I realized that I also don’t do the things I love anymore. I have no idea what’s happened over the last few years. Laziness? Lack of self pride? Pity? Depression? I don’t have an answer to what seems to be a ridiculous question but again, I’m about to change that. I want to delve into life again so help me out. Share my life, share my story through this blog and via Twitter (@orianoelle).
Writing/Blogging: I don’t write as often as I want and I definitely don’t write as freely as I’d prefer. Every time I pull the brutally honest card on life, people get absolutely bent out of shape. I’m obviously aware that this is bound to happen but the moments that it does is over the most incredibly ridiculous things by the most incompetent people who can barely spell the entirety of a sentence correctly. Screw them. I’m not going to put a mask on for my readers to protect me from a few silly-wibblies whose brains are too small to see the gift in all forms of art.
Photography: I used to bring my camera everywhere and thankfully with the continuous updating of cell phones, I can always have a camera with me and I take pictures at all possible times. However, I’ve fallen way behind on appreciating the photography that I take. I haven’t truly edited beyond an Instagram filter in a good three years. When my brother asked me to take his senior pictures a few weeks ago I was both honored and terrified. I need to update on my editing skills and push out some great photos. Here goes nothing!
Scrap Booking: Who doesn’t love scrap booking? It’s an amazing way to take every picture that you love, include your imagination and result in a awesome page of memories. This again with many of my other “loves” has slipped away from me. I no longer have all of my old supplies and at the moment I have no where to work had I had it in the first place but I need to dive into it again. I crave it!
Pottery: I don’t think I’ve done anything pottery related since high school but I loved it. It’s so relaxing and gives the artist absolute control over a piece of amoeba shaped clay going from nothing to something deep inside their imaginative soul. There’s a pottery studio here in town that an old friend of mine and I will be hitting up within the next few months. I can’t wait!
Foreign Languages: I’ve always been fascinated in the world, in history, and in language of all kinds. I never wanted to learn Spanish because everyone seems to know it and I have no desire to really travel to any Latino or Spanish speaking countries. I just don’t. However, French has always peaked an interest. I WILL one day become a world traveler but what’s the point if I can’t speak to anyone in their native language? I think Rosetta Stone is in my near future.
Cheers to making dreams come true and living out even the smallest of desires!
