inspire me please.

aYuWwo on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs
 ˆˆˆ this is how i felt basically all week. (a gif i made from photos i took of lauren awhile back)  ˆˆˆ

i felt like a hit a real block this week. i'd never felt so creatively exhausted.
and my school work had been suffering because of it. trust me, inspiration has been lacking.
don't get me wrong i've loved all my design classes this semester and have
learned sooo much good stuff. so much.

but it's been a pretty steep learning curve.
and i just felt like i needed a break to just lie there and let it all soak in.
like a week on a deserted island. one with no obligations to anyone or anything.
well maybe nick could come.

but then, yesterday is was like the heavens opened and let me know everything was going to be alright.
in the form of two israelis and a ted talk.

the two israelis were these amazing/hilarious graphic designers that came all the
way to byu to give one of the most inspiring forums i've ever intended. it just helped me get out of myself and my own problems and widen my perspective on life again.
i highly recommend checking out the work they're doing with peace factory.

and then one of my teachers must have been inspired to share this ted talk
with us by elizabeth gilbert. the author of eat, pray, love. it reminded me that it's okay and normal
to struggle with inspiration and that i actually can get out of a rut.

so...sometimes you've just gotta scream it out, blog about it, shake it off and start fresh.

  6. I adore this. And totally get it. Feeling uninspired is the literal worst. Buuuut. It precedes greatness, so I mean. There's that. You have good things coming!!

    LOVE Ted Talks, love Elizabeth. So much wisdom.
