I Think I've Become 'Too Creative'

I Think I've Become 'Too Creative'

But how bad can it really be?

While being creative isn’t a bad quality at all to possess, it does present challenges... or so I’ve recently discovered.

The past few weeks, I’ve begun to find more of myself, uncovering qualities and aspirations hidden within me. With that came motivation, a desire to create, achieve, and explore every idea that popped into my mind.

Some may call this great, I certainly do. I’ve never found myself filled with so much inspiration and motive to bring out the best in myself. However, the timing isn’t at all cooperative in this pure joy I have begun to experience.

Of course, the one aspect I have no control over.

As a second-semester college student, I’ve slowly become accustomed to the workload given. Though my stress will occasionally blast through the roof, I’ve been able to handle most of it fairly well.

Due to the amount of work I receive, it becomes difficult to squeeze in time for personal growth and desire to explore newfound passions and interests, especially when the list of assignments and personal projects you’d like to begin continues to grow.

Wanting to express myself creatively has become a challenge, despite my intense motivation to do so. My education hasn’t allowed me the time.

Several ideas have been circulating in my mind over the past few weeks. Though with a mound of work and other aspects of my life to take care of first, it’s been nearly impossible to start anything. That’s the main issue: constantly coming up with new creative projects, but not having the time to dive into them is infuriating.

Perhaps I’ll begin to learn greater time management skills, ones that will allow me to have a creative outlet more frequently, while still keeping my school and social lives at the forefront.

We can only hope from here!

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

Contemplating Regret

A personal thought on love and regret.

views

BASED ON SONNET 116 BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

LET ME NOT TO THE MARRIAGE OF TRUE MINDS
ADMIT IMPEDIMENTS. LOVE IS NOT LOVE
WHICH ALTERS WHEN IT ALTERATION FINDS,
OR BENDS WITH THE REMOVER TO REMOVE:
O NO; IT IS AN EVER-FIXED MARK.

THE THOUGHT OF YOU AND THE THOUGHT OF US BURNS THE HEAVY DARKNESS OF MY EYELIDS LIKE THE COOL STREAMS OF VODKA THAT SLIDE DOWN MY THROAT. WE WERE IT, YOU WERE IT FOR ME. WE WERE THE KIND OF LOVE, THE TRUE AND UNTAINTED LOVE.

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT.

YOU LEFT A TATTOO ON THE SINEWS OF MY HEART AND BRANDED YOUR TOUCH INTO THE SOFT SKIN OF MY HIPS. I CLOSE MY EYES AGAIN AND ALL I CAN SEE IS YOU, ALWAYS YOU. I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL RECOVER.

OR IF THE RADIANCE OF YOUR SMILE WILL EVER FADE FROM THE STARS.

OR IF THE SOUND OF YOUR LAUGH WILL EVER DISAPPEAR FROM THE FOUR WHITE WALLS OF THIS COLD AND EMPTY ROOM.

BUT HERE'S TO US, THE BROKEN COUPLE WHO COULD NEVER FIND OUR FOOTING IN THE WORLD.

I RAISE A TOAST IN A FRACTURED GLASS FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH A STINGING BITE OF REGRET AND DISAPPOINTMENT. THE SHARP SHARDS CUT MY TONGUE, AND A CRIMSON TIDE BLOCKS THE WORDS I NEVER KNEW HOW TO SAY.

TONIGHT I'LL LOSE YOU AGAIN TO A SEA OF LIGHTS THAT SHINE ALMOST AS BRIGHT AS THE STARS WE USED TO COUNT. THE SAME EXACT STARS THAT YOU SAID WOULD NEVER OUTSHINE MY EYES.
