This break felt unreasonably short however, I feel as though I made the most of it. Here are some pictures followed by a song that reminds me of that day with a brief description.
This day Liz and I got pizza at Goodfellas in OTR and went to Urban Outfitters. Highly suggest Goodfellas and shopping on Main Street in OTR. There are some great shops like RAD and Native One, which are both owned by young people from Cincy which is cool. I got some clout glasses at urban which didn’t last long bc someone broke them on New Years. Liz and I are in the car so much that we just made a collaborative Spotify playlist that we put on shuffle when we are together which is kind of genius so we both already know we like all the songs that are going to play. That day I remember the song Take Care by Drake coming on and we both got so excited because it’s such a good throwback banger.
This day I remember being really cold but really pretty out because the sunset was gold. I was really happy this day. I remember thinking about the quote “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” I think I knew I was in them.
Song from that day- FACE by Brockhampton
These pictures are from the last day of break and it makes me sad to look at because I didn’t realize it was my last day until like halfway through that day. There is a frozen pond at clear creek that you can skate on which I thought was kinda scary but it looked cool to watch my friends play hockey. The sunset was really pretty too.
Song from that day – Gap in the Clouds by Yellow Days
These pictures were on Christmas eve I think. My sister and I went to the Old School House and Old Milford and took some pictures until it started raining.
Song of that day – Just Like Heaven by The Cure (me and Mackenzie’s favorite song)
This day I was with my friends and we decided to go to the canals because it was really nice out. It is pretty much a Graffiti Muesuem in Cincinnati. One of my friends I was with is a crazy good artist, currently at an art school in NYC. Just watching his make art is so entertaining, I’m so envious of how he can just throw up an amazing piece so effortlessly.
Song from that day – Go by Louis the Child
I don’t really feel like finding more pictures and there is a lot of things I didn’t get pictures of. But overall, I had a really great break and I always love this time of year. Being able to see my sister and other friends that came home from college that I don’t get to see all the time anymore is nice but bittersweet.
When reflecting on the last couple years I can look back now and distinctly see why God put certain people and events in my life. I am extremely grateful for those people and experiences even though it may not have been the easiest in the moment. I will always have more to learn and discover about myself, and that is what makes me wake up in a good mood every day (for the most part). Discovering my passion for art in many forms has changed my life. It brings me joy and helps me comprehend and voice my emotions. Not only that but it has changed the trajectory of my plans for the future. My life goal is to provide a space for underprivileged kids to gather, create, and enjoy art in a safe environment. I envision a large warehouse house with white walls ready to be cover in art. Somewhere for inner-city kids to get off the streets or poor environments and collaborate in a healthy form of self-expression. Also for the to have access to all kinds of art supplies: paint, pens, markers, laptops, instruments, anything they need to create their desires.
