❤ A Miu Miu editorial photo that I included in one of my homework “assignments”
Tomorrow starts the second week of my fall quarter, and wow, I can’t believe my classes. Yes, they are a lot of work. Here at SCAD, we have three-day weekends and I am not exaggerating when I say that I have been doing hours of work each day. But I am so grateful, because it is work I enjoy, and some of my assignments include things that I already do in my free time (I am a fashion design major). Of course, there are times when I may be tired and just want to take a nap or watch a movie. Usually though, I get into a work flow and my assignments create inspiration for me. With my classes, creativity is required and sometimes inspiration isn’t there right away. But I have found that if I just start working, I get into a flow and from there, I see things that I didn’t before. Does this make sense? These may just sound like ramblings of an art student 🙂
This weekend I have been working on a visual trend report, which contrary to what it sounds like, it is more of a mood board forecasting the designs I will create. I am really loving how it is turning out, and I will for sure share the finished assignment here on GGS as well as the inspiration behind it all. This is for my Intro to Fashion class, and for that class I also have been finishing up my designer presentation. We are to pick a designer and do a small biography, and choose a favorite collection; talking about what we believe was the inspiration behind it.
Something I am trying to be mindful about this year is my stress levels. I often would find myself putting off things that I didn’t believe I could do perfectly, and this would result in me scrambling to finish assignments. It all came from a point of me believing that I couldn’t do what I set out to do. Here are some of the things I tell myself to release doubt, fear, and ultimately, stress so that I can create the life I imagine for myself.
I can do anything I can imagine, and I am worthy and confident. Self-love is being soft and kind towards ourselves, but it is also discipline. I choose to make choices from a point of self-love, and be okay with how everything is in the moment, because once I am okay with everything, I will be okay within myself.
Thank you so much for reading,
