Routines and Daily Art | An Update

I had run 7/20 miles on the treadmill total when I had the idea to check how far my fitbit thought I had run… then I realized I had gone a total of 19.99 miles. Exactly. I could dye my hair silver now! But wait, what’s that? My dad is handing me the phone? Okay, so I got a job interview for the next day. Maybe not the best time to dye my hair or repierce my lip for fun.

Two days later and the job interview went great. Not only that, the employer said there are no policies on piercings, nail polish, or hair color! So I re-stabbed my own lip (what fun) and am plotting when I should dye my hair. If I even should. I’m having second thoughts, you know. It went from everyone saying “it’ll look so good!” to “actually I’m not so sure…” and I’m not seeking the approval of everyone around me, but it would be nice. I may wait a while or until I have the job secured to dye my hair.

My morning routine is five days strong! Wake up early, eat, drink tea and absorb information (watch news, read, talk to someone), coffee, wash face and teeth, do art. Doing art definitely has to be my favorite part of this whole thing (aside from the coffee). Not just any art though. Since I’m a freelance artist, making finished art pieces can get stressful. That’s why for my morning routine I have limited it to small, free-flowing watercolor painting. It’s extremely relaxing to play with whatever colors my mind is taking to that morning. If I’m not feeling inspired, I can just splash colors on the paper or dot them around and smudge them. It’s a very forgiving art form. The only problem (which is not really a problem at all) is that I get into this meditative state, sipping my coffee, painting, absent-mindedly petting my cat and before I know it, more than an hour has passed. What! I suppose I don’t have to get that piece of time managed right now. Maybe I will if and when I get that job (;

Until the next update,
