These apricots are finally gone. My dog liked to eat them when they dropped off the tree, get an upset stomach and sook for the rest of the day. Even after getting sick she would continue to eat them. We tried to get them before she got them but sometimes it was impossible.
It’s beyond me, that I get to do what I do for a living. I wake up with that thought every single day. With this choice to be self-employed however, has come great responsibility at a young age: I moved out of home at a young age, paying all my bills, running my own business, booking my own travel, etc. Everything bleeds together in my life; I don’t feel a separation between working and what I love to do on a typical day. Which is both amazing and incredibly difficult at times.
Amazing because when asked what my dream job is, I can say I already have it. Amazing because I get to create art for people/brands for a living. Amazing because I know I’m incredibly lucky to be able to do this at 22.
Difficult because, not many people understand the work and the time that goes into it, because of the unique nature of being your own boss. Difficult because life’s rhythm is a lot different than most people’s, and your mindset as well.
While most people dread Mondays and anxiously await the weekends, I live everyday without a label. Most people plan vacations, and I plan trips to create more work. It’s all interconnected for me; it’s life as an artist, and I hope to never give it up. It’s beautiful chaos.
