Hey all,

I’ve been away working on my statement of purpose for grad school. This is the most difficult paper I’ve ever had to write thus far. I find it so easy to talk about a thesis, or research, or any other subject except myself… I hope to pull through this writer’s block soon though. I just want to reflect upon my life experiences and present my best self, showing that I truly want to make a difference in the field. 

In other news, I’m back in school taking my last prerequisite course to complete my portfolio and application process, so that too is pretty exciting. I’m not excited to have to eventually take out loans to pay for school and stuff, but I really want my future career to not only aid me in helping others use art therapeutically, but I also want to put more monies into expanding my brand, apparel, and accessory line. I just hope to do what I love, and uplift others in the process. Those are my ultimate long term goals.

One day…

Bless the people that let me rant, rave, cry, scream, be angry, be sad, and just sit be my lonesome, lost in my feelings… Sometimes I’m just so tired of all the pain, the injustice, the disregard for poc/qpoc, the —isms, and the white supremacy existing in the world…and I’m not sure how to cope with it all. It’s horrible, and I’m a very emotional creature… But, the best thing  I can do is be gentle with myself, and feel what I feel, and then be the change I wish to see in the world… I so badly want change, empathy, solidarity, and revolution!!! I will do what I can, and go from there…
