Whenever life hits me with a brick ton of education-related work, my fingers start itching with The Creative Itch as I like to call it, my brain starts bursting with ideas and every smallest thing can set me crazy with inspirearity. (I know the proper word is 'inspiration. ' Shush. I'm in a creative mood, hush.) I don't and I won't have much time this month to make things but because my creative juices may run dry by the end of my college semester, I am writing this blog post for my future 15-th-of-June-when-exams-are-done-ah-I-can't-wait self. And for you because it's so so much fun to GET INSPIRED TO CREATE. Ahhhh can we just all sit around a giant table and make things?! Please, for like an entire week?
So here are some things that have inspired me - made me yearn to make - to be creative - to create.
If you like art and you are on instagram, follow this one. She draws so effortlessly (it seems!) and every picture is CUTE and like, not-super-glamorous (I mean that in a good way, you know, like down to earth, CUTE pictures) but also really dang good and alive. I want to draw like this. P l e a s e give me that gifttt ahh. DRAW ME.
Fashion sketches of Dodie Clark (some youtuber.) Isn't that ridiculously cute?!
And this picture of La La Land:
Because... well. Pinterest is the source of all creativity and inspiration. Amen and amen. I have a pinterest board called 'inspire + create' because every time I go into it (yes. into.) I get inspired to create. Go into it.
SO MUCH PINTEREST.
WHY MUST LIFE BE LIKE THIS.
The cute things you find on Pinterest. ^^ for example. That makes me want to devote entire sketch books to drawing eyes.
Breaking news! Lately I have really been wanting to write songs! I randomly tried making one after a Bible study with my friend Gabby on Colossians 1 and I sort of managed to make a worship song with some of words in the chapter. It was far from perfect and I am continually un-confident in my musical abilities but you know one should TRY things one thinks one cannot do. SO this summer I wanna write some songs. Get out of my comfortable creativity zone. To do something creatively that I always thought I would never do. You know, that feels good. I may even write a poem this summer. :-P
Tessa Violet - Not over you
Not only is Tessa Violet SO aesthetically pleasing but this song is simple but catchy but just unashamedly fun. I want to make a catchy song. This song is goals.
Owl City - New York
Mason Ramsey - Famous
*HIDES IN SHAME* BUT ACTUALLY THIS SONG IS REALLY GOOD DON'T KILL ME.
The High Kings - The Little Beggarman
THIS SONG. It's been on repeat x1000. Love love it. Come let's pretend we can Irish dance.
Dodie Clark - Lollipop
I haven't been writing much but am I inspired to write? Yes. heckyes.
My own old notes
I was reading through my notes on my phone and there I found this story idea I had written down in the train randomly several months ago:
Teenager (boy, 17?) Lives with his loving parents, older sister and dog. + at school someone set a fire. + teacher who has a background
Teenager finds special machine in attic/somewhere/in a bin outside - in a box that says "do not touch this; it ruined my life" and then "sometimes it is better not to know"
It's a kind of helmet attached with batteries and wires and a screen attached to a long wire. Teenager wears the helmet and sees his thoughts on the screen
He runs down to try it on dad, but he discovers something terrible...
Wants to find man who made it, so he goes on a mission. He wants to know how the heck he made it
Finds mans wife. Man is mentally 3 years old cuz he accidentally deleted his brain content. So noone will ever know how he made it
When boy realises you can change brain content he decides to delete certain things from his fathers brain
Also this one:
Woman stares at man in train.
"Sorry," she says, "you just remind me of my high school boyfriend who died ten years ago"
Man looks at her. "Danielle?" He asks.
"No, my name is Hannah."
Later on Hannah finds out more about her past. She had an accident which means she forgot about a lot of her old life. She finds out her name really was Danielle.
Dun dun dunnnnnn
Not to brag or anything but my 'stories to write' pinterest board is pretty dope and basically a treasure hunt for story inspiration.
Can you smell the stories?! I can.
Simultaneous/ aka.the rest
Ah there's SO much more.
I want to cook meals. I am the worst cook ever so those Instagram recipes really must be tempting. (I won't bother finding links. But basically I wanna make chicken nuggets and waffle pizza and I want to make chocolate bowls. Among other things.)
It's pictures like this:

OLIVIA'S JOURNALLING SKILLS. I give up on mine. Love love love.
Ok, that's it for today. I will come back to this post when I have time to actually put my creative itch into action. Now I must return to the life outside my laptop where I have a lot of schoolwork to do.Tomorrow I'm teaching 24 ten year olds. eek!
Send me some links!
I wanna see :)
