When your sandwich is perfect…Ahhh..It’s priceless.
It has been a while since I posted. There’s no excuse but during the time that I was gone, I did many things. One of them being perfecting the best sandwich combinations…At least to me they are, keep in mind I am no masterchef (shocking). Here are 2 of my favourites as of now. Give them a try. They packed with flavour because your girl hates bland food.
All of this is making me hungry! Look out for more posts about my love for food and my peculiar taste, and lots more art related things! ☕️
Go bananas for what makes you happy. I was in a rut the last few weeks during my midterms (still a little bit right now). When you put everything down to do things that don’t make you happy, (cough cough cough- organic chemistry) you can get in a rut. I put everything down to focus on midterms and upcoming exams but instead of being productive, I found myself more unmotivated and tired. If you ever did yoga, the instructors always say to do what your body craves. I know enough about myself that when I get upset, art is my therapy. And here we are. Credits to my housemate’s bananas which she should eat faster because they are browning!
I am reading a book called The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. He emphasizes that happiness is the input for the function of success. If you put your happiness above everything, you will be more productive and likely more successful. Consider this idea the next time you feel unmotivated or unhappy. Draw some bananas, or whatever makes you go bananas.
Later, alligator. 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌
It has almost been a year since I started my first bullet journal. While I don’t use mine as routinely as most bullet journal users, I have some tips on how to start a bullet journal. I also included some of my favourite spreads from the past year. 🤩
Good luck and happy bullet journaling! 🤘
My fondest memories of drawing as a kid was doodling. It wasn’t sketching still life or painting landscapes, but rather drawing anything that popped into my head, all over the page until the whole thing was covered. I like to describe this type of drawing as a “visual sensory overload”. It’s also unique because it peeps into the inner thoughts of the mind. Everything you draw has a significance, whether it is symbolic or you just like the form and structure.
This quick doodle was done over the summer. And even though I haven’t made a sensory overload drawing in years, there are still some common themes in my doodles. They always include 3 things: floating hands, skulls, and food. I wonder what that says about me. 😂
Keep calm and doodle on. (Or study if you have midterms like I do. In that case, good luck!)
I think I found my calling…I LOVE MY ANATOMY CLASS. I sound like a complete nerd but even the textbook is pretty cool… The anatomy lab where we got to look at cadavers was incredible. I never thought I would get to touch and handle real human organs and bones! The first day of class (not going to lie but I felt a little faint), everyone gathered around the cadaver and we all got to hold a human heart in our hands!!!
I’ve dabbled in anatomical drawings before but I never found any good resources to draw from (imagine my search engine history: “human hand without skin”) and frankly, I didn’t know what I was drawing. I am so grateful for my prof and all the resources that he has given us.
This week we are learning about the human brain. Oh boy, there’s at least like 89190481 different structures that we have to memorize. I labelled like 3 things in my drawing. Kudos to people studying medical illustration. You have my admiration.
Ttyl. Back to making small doodles of the brain and all its lobes, gyri, sulci, and other good stuff. 💪
This is a quick little doodle I did over the summer.
This summer was the time of many first’s, like my first full-time job and my first time paying rent. I was incredibly lucky to have a job with a boss who trusted and valued me so much. I also learned how hard it is to earn money and how easy it is to spend. If I look many years ahead, there’s also this ugly thing waiting for me called: STUDENT DEBT.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, we all have different relationships with money. And no one can quite understand what another person is going through.
