I happen to have a chance to write now. It’s raining, so naturally the windows are all open.
My life has been somewhat chaotic lately. Weekends spent being social have been turned into introverted exile, a way of charging my batteries once again. The added benefit is that I have more time to tie up loose ends on my projects. I’m even getting back into the still photo medium again.
I installed these dry-erase marker boards next to my front door. I use them to keep track of my tasks, projects, and errands, so I can come home and immediately decide what I feel like doing. The two silver clips are used for hanging notes and letters.
Nothing feels better than putting that thick black line through a task. Writing on frosted glass is pretty tasty too.
I use the other board for quotes, a way to keep myself motivated — or grounded — every time I pass by on the way in or out of the house. It’s also a nice way for me to practice my hand-drawn typography, by trying to balance characters, words, and lines on the board in different variations in an esthetic manner.
There’s something familiar about this. A feeling like I’ve been here before, not in this situation exactly, but in the middle of the chaos.
All I know for sure is that I feel like I can handle it much better than if this was happening a year ago.
