Still at home, but kind of loving it.


I like watching the sunrise and the birds start singing. The quiet calm in the air. Today I woke up at 4am to attend a songwriting workshop. I've been trying to learn as much as I can, because right now we have the luxury of time and it's so exciting to get to really dive into the things I didn't get to do before. Obviously, there will be some projects that won't be completed like the scarf I've been knitting since January and still haven't completed. The other day I started a digital drawing for beginners course, and started trying to learn more about music editing and business. I also attended a coaching seminar on Zoom with coaches from all over the world, and it made me miss the ice and teaching.
It still blows my mind how the internet has connected us, especially now when we can't really connect in real life. My laptop is full of notes and random song ideas, projects I've been working on, collaborations, old pictures from my phone, etc etc. There's so much to do, its exciting and sometimes paralysing. During the weekend I was unmotivated and pretty uninspired, so I turned to listening to music and binging on Netflix tv shows. My siblings and I have been doing this a lot lately. We'd lock ourselves in our rooms a long time to work on music, dance, art, writing, schoolwork (in Arian's case) and then we'd do the opposite and watch entire seasons of tv at a go. Today I am sorting through all the files and replying to the texts and emails I have unintentionally ignored lately. There's quite a lot to do today, so this is just a quick post to say hello. Will write more soon.
I hope you are all doing well, and healthy, and safe. I'm learning to trust my process of creativity and coping with all the things that are happening right now, and I hope you know that no matter how you feel right now, it is temporary. And that it is okay <3
