I keep thinking back to my time as a theater student, how I would take 3-5 classes each semester, work on 3 or 4 separate productions, work part-time in the costume shop, work part time in a box office, and still attend every social function my peers could throw at me. What's strange is that I don't remember feeling tired during any of it. Now, I get home and turn into Jabba the Hut--immovable from my spot on the couch, shoveling frozen meals and easy-mac down my gullet as I babble gibberish at Tim, whining at him until he helps me untie my shoes (because they are so far away once the Jabba fat rolls have finished spreading out beneath me). It's disgusting, really, and I'm not entirely sure how he is still attracted to me at this point.
Hopefully things will calm down soon, but in the meantime I figure I'll try to set aside 2 or 3 hours a week to keep creative (and keep myself sane). Last week, I painted this zen little sunset on the iPad. It's the most creativity I could muster, with the least amount of clean-up involved.

What images keep you feeling zen? I'm all about ocean scenes and sunsets, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm sure it's different for everyone.Pin It
