With the start of every year, the ubiquitous pressure of resolutions regarding change and habits is heavily felt. This year I want to focus on streamlining the process of exhibition of all of my work, both the everyday snapshots and longterm projects. Over these many years, my wordpress had been a mixture of inspiration and personal work, but now with the many different social media platforms and the creation of my website I have decided it’s time to let go. The overlap of websites and apps along with the decision process of what content to post where became taxing. I’ve decided to archive my wordpress and use this platform as my expanded journal.
Throughout my life I never regularly kept a diary, but still loved the idea of a journal. As a visual person I kept notebooks with lists, quotes, tearsheets and the like for organization and creative flow. It’s not because I had a dislike for writing, I never happened to discipline myself on the practice. Now as I am finishing up my undergrad, the writing courses I have taken seem to have left an impression and the flow of writing is present - hopefully not temporarily.
The Thinking Tank was an outlet for my creative inspiration and will continue doing so on tumblr and pinterest. This journal will be comprised of posts filled with bits and pieces of my life, glimpses of my everyday occurrences along with an in depth view of my creative work process. For the inaugural post, here are a selection of photos documenting the first week of 2016. Fireworks on NYE, a hike on the first day of the year with my good friend Shane, lots of coffee and a visit to a cat cafe!
