The last couple weeks I’ve been on break from school. I’ve been spending time truly taking time for myself - more than I ever really have before. I turned off all notifications from social media, put my phone on Do Not Disturb, emptied my room of all the junk, practiced turning my computer off often, and started seriously writing again. I’ve also gotten hooked on the books Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art by Stephen Nachmanovitch and The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron which have both been amazing so far. More details about these when I’m done. I’m grateful for the downtime.
