Stepping Stones of Self-Exploration

With a super hot laptop and a loud fan, plus my room’s fan spinning on its heel, I bring to yee all, an update! πŸ™‚

I was going to post last night and had begun to, but my mind was muddled and then my Mom and I were talking for a long while so I had to scrap that post. Ugh, I just got the hiccups AGAIN. Tired of these buggers. :/

Fun fact, I did my nails spontaneously this morning!

Don’t they just look snazzy? When they dry, they smell like bubble gum πŸ™‚ Which is the same scent as this pink fairy dust I have from Lush. πŸ˜€ I did pretty impressively with my left hand, all that ambidextrous work when it comes to IOS. *badass nod*

I’m feeling much, MUCH better now, too. Which is actually what this post is all about.

I set aside a couple hours today to do some self-exploration/journaling in my blogging journal. I’ve come up with a working schedule and a few lists–so let’s jump on in!!

First, this is a proposal schedule #1 for myself. It’ll be likely that I’ll have to change and edit this as the future progresses, but I have a working idea of a starting point for now. πŸ™‚

For DA activity, I’ve listed Tu Th and Sun’s.

For blogging, M W F Sat as “main” days, while a looser standard is set for the other leftover days. Depending on prompts, mood, what I have to talk about, etc.

Artwork, with and without inspiration worked on throughout each day

Positive messages, Create W F Sat with 5-10 at a time.

Exposures, 30 minutes each day, with a break on the weekend.

Outings and hang outs, 2-3 times a week.

The leftover figuring out stuff is for my basic hygiene and chores, replying to messages, work hours and that Stats class hours. This stuff I’ll get to another time to figure out more.

My Goals for Structure:

Keeping myself accountable.

Giving myself an organized structure.

Preparation for school/work.

Effectively juggling my fun and my work.

Working in line with my values.

  • Personal freedom
  • Authenticity
  • Personal growth
  • Unity

Values I Strive For but are a Work In Progress:

  1. Structure

  4. Freedom
  5. Self-actualization
  6. Stability
