School's definitely been keeping me on my toes, but my calves are starting to burn hahaha. You'll understand if you try to stand on your tip toes for a long time DX. Kills! The past couple of weeks have been really difficult for me to get through mentally and emotionally because of all of the work that's been presented for us to do, but I've been doing my best to keep my head on straight ^^;. I don't mean to sound like a whiner or anything! Hope I don't!
I have some good news though to combat all of the bleh associated with school :D. I don't think I posted this in my last blog entry at all, but my dad and I have been getting together every Sunday and he's been helping me mix my songs so that I can finally get them up on iTunes and ready to go! We have two songs finished--one of which I want to tweak just a little bit--and two (I think) more to go! I'm extremely excited! He's been wondering if I plan on making a music video for any of the songs and I think that I might try to do something for at least one of them because I super love music videos and have really wanted to make some of my own but never had the chance! Be prepared Christie Karr!!! I'm going to be bugging you to help me soon if you're interested :D!
I don't want to spend too much time blogging this morning, but I did want to update you guys on what has been going on in my life and show you some more of the weird foods I've been making and whatnot :). So, here we go!!!
LeanBodyLifestyle and his recipes aren't too bad even though finding the ingredients can sometimes be kind of tricky ^^;.
Anyway! I'm really excited to mix another song this upcoming Sunday and see my folks again! It's going to be awesome :). Only a couple more Sundays and my album will be on the market!! AAAAH! Such an exciting thought!!! I've been contemplating album cover ideas and the like and I think I have a good idea of what I'm going to do :). I might go look for some inspiration later today or something if I'm feeling like it :). It is my play day after all!!! Thank you God for the weekend :D.
So! Just letting you all know, I haven't been practicing my "gratitude" days as much lately, but I took to something else that's been helping me just as much and I thought I'd share it with you! Basically in the morning when I'm taking a break at work, I'll open the notes app on my phone and I'll write out the kinds of attributes I want to have in the future, whether it's the near or far future. I'll type out a few here to give you an idea of what I mean :).
"I'm able to purchase items that I want but don't need without feeling a sense of guilt."
"I'm able to take breaks and do the things that I love with the abundant amount of spare time I have."
"I don't have to worry about spending too much money because there's always a surplus in my bank from all the hard work I've done."
"I can travel far and wide and do so for fun once every year."
"My home is everything I want it to be."
"I'm able to manage my stress in a way that keeps me calm and helps me interact better with others."
Things like that :). It kind of inspires me to be more like that and aspire to being that person when I type it down in my phone. Who knows, it might work for you too if you feel like you're in a negative rut :).
Anyway, I'm going to go draw for a little bit I think :). Love you all and hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!!!
