Constantly On The Move Or A Story About Wearing Too Many Hats

I really wanted to write this blog at least on a weekly basis, and although I don’t want to make excuses – I realize once again that life doesn’t always go our way.

My job became a lot more burdensome and stressful and sometimes when I get home I just stare in the blank space and then go to sleep. I really want to say how well everything in my life is going but the truth is far from that.

I have been wearing too many hats, trying to force myself in many different directions, making too many life-changing decisions and taking on too many responsibilities.

As I want to make this blog about my different interests and make it light, I will try to give you a quick update on things that have been going okay.

First, I am still drawing. Also, I found a few awesome groups on Facebook – one that gives daily topics and one that has weekly session with some U-Mazing digital artists. Just watching these blows my brains out. So, here’s a pony I drew:

Second, I managed to save quite a huge amount of my previously owned Eric Van Lustbader books filled with sizzle, because I gave them to a friend of mine who owns a bookstore, and I even managed to finish the one called “Sirens”. Mmmm, yum! Definitely recommend!

Third, my boyfriend and I are going to move in together soon(ish) and we are currently renovating the apartment, so I have been day-dreaming and devouring design magazines in order to find the best style for us both, given our very different tastes.

Fourth, I am still trying to maintain some shape different than sphere, so I have been going to my martial arts training as often as possible and I even went to a swing dance lesson.

Sadly, I haven’t had much time to devote to my favourite game – Guild Wars 2 and probably I missed the grand era finale. Having a full-time job is not the best decision for a mover and shaker like me!

Well, if you just skipped the wall of text, here are a few interesting links you might enjoy:

2. A great new technique that merges hand-drawn illustrations with animation -I present you the Disney short “Paperman” 

Sad, but the feels:

Elderly couple who take a photo each coming season

And a short quiz I enjoyed a lot: What fictional city do you belong to?

Well. hope you had fun! Keep going for your dreams, because the world needs what you have to offer!

Fail summary

I guess I hit flat ground with my last post, but, oh well, it was worth the try.

I am a bit of a (recovering) perfectionist and failure is not something I deal with easily. But as time passes, I feel like there is no such thing and I treat every failure as a stepping stone to knowing better. Also, I don’t forget to congratulate myself for experimenting and being brave.

As I have been thinking about the choices I make recently, this video is a great illustration on how different our paths may turn out to be, I hope mine doesn’t lead me astray .

I don’t have much else to say, so just sit back, relax and enjoy few good pieces I have prepared for you.

1. Surreal self-portraits by Rachel Baran, and if you enjoy it, click Here for more stunning (and haunting) pictures.

2. Don’t date a girl who travels

3. Classic paintings come to life by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, but beware, it is sort of creepy. I do not advise you to watch it before bed.

4. George Martin rockin’ it out…again!

And a music video which I totally support (tx to my BFF for them videos). Love is for all of us!

Mon Dieu! It’s strange to live in this day and age!

P.S.: If nothing suited your fancy, just see these almost naked ladies in superhero T-shirts and life will be better! Nerd powaH!

Hello!

My name is Julia.

This is my creative outlet in order to remain sane. I have always been a curious soul – one that longs to see, smell, hear and experience everything. I could never choose just one vocation, one life, one way of thinking because I am constantly searching for a new perspective and a new thrill.

I blog/share because I hope that this will serve at least one person in some way whether to inspire, dream, amuse, entertain or inform. Sometimes people need just a little touch on the forehead for someone they like to nudge them on the path they were longing to take. Some blogs have done that for me and I hope that I can pay this forward.

I am going to lead you through all of my interests – one at a time. Sometimes I will remain focused on something that caught my attention for a day and sometimes I would become obsessed for weeks.

Few recurring themes will probably be food & health; sport & adventure; art & creativity; games; books & movies; business and/or marketing; spirituality; martial arts; leisure time activities.

I will try to make it as easy as possible for you to discover the theme that you are interested in, but I still hope you will get lost in my mad little world and enjoy the ride.

From this blog I want to connect with people who are also excited about life, who like adventures, who like to think out of the box and go for their dreams. This is an ambitious list of qualities, so even if you don’t match all or don’t feel secure that you match the description – don’t be afraid to reach out and connect.

If this blog turns out to be successful and someone reads it at all, I imagine that by the end of the year I would have found a way to engage with these readers, I want to read people’s comments, I want to make new friends, I want to know that there are people excited by (some of) the things I am. Also, it would be great if I manage to update this blog at least once a week, if not more.

Thank you for being here!

Julia
