Hey everyone! so from this point forward, I will be adding each of my daily updates here as well as on the main page. This I feel like will make my blog more user friendly and ascetically pleasing! I will try it out like this for a while to see if it works and if it doesn’t then I will figure out a new way to do this. Thanks for bearing with me during all the changes to my page!
Daily Update 5/15/17
So today was productive I guess. I ran a lot of errands with my mom and also cleaned out some boxes out of our garage. I am not really in the mood to really write a fully detailed post about it tonight, but I will leave you with this….go and look at my last post and it will describe the struggle I have had with managing my time.
I am writing this post right after finishing that and I am motivated to fit in the different things i love to do into my every day. I am determined to get back to relation with Christ first, but then also being a lot more organized when it comes to managing my time so I can fully put the proper time into this blog, my instagram account, and my other more creative endeavors. I love so many things, and I need to realize that they aren’t just tasks that need to be crossed off a list, but things I enjoy doing. Although I am going to get organized with these things, I am also going to take the time to fully emerse myself into the things I love and enjoy them in the moment while doing them. That is all. Thanks for bearing with me during my second rant of the night. I guess I just needed to get somethings off my chest. Now I feel better. Okay well goodnight everyone. Sleep well and have a great week!
Oh also! continue to pray for my friends and boyfriend that they stay safe overseas on their International Service Project trips!
Love, Kim ❤
Daily Update 5/13/17
Hello everyone who is reading! lol. So my day today…eventful yet also uneventful. Busy is probably the better word to describe it since most of the things I did today were just errands which included driving my brother all over the place. Anywho rant over and on with my day….
So I woke up late today since my grandmother woke me up in the middle of the night and I had a hard time falling back to sleep. Of course this is partially my fault because I decided to sleep on the couch last night instead of sharing the bed with my mom. But it was not cool of her to at 1:40am to flip on the lights and start trying to find something she needed in the same room where I was sleeping. Long tangent over.
So I woke up, got ready and got to go have lunch with one of my really good friends who I haven’t seen in over a year. Sam is also a huge Disney fan and a lot of the pictures to come on my instagram feed in the next couple months are from her trips to both Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney world. She also has a sick photography instagram account that you should all go follow (@samsphotoworld ). We went to In n Out and despite not being thrilled with my food (which is rare for me since I absolutely love In n Out) we had a really good time catching up.
Following lunch, I had to go and do errands (woohoo! she shouts sarcastically) The errands on the list included taking my brother 25 minutes away to get his hair cut, and to the store to get items on the shortest and strangest shopping list I have seen in a while. So first the haircut. This errand was not so horrible since I go to the same lady that does my hair, but try to do that with my brother in the car and it is a whole different story. At least he finally cut the monster of Top Ramen hair he had and he can present himself as a presentable human for the first time in forever. (The reference to Frozen was completely unintentional).
Once that was tackled it was onto the second errand which was the grocery store. The list my grandma gave me was a follows: Chocolate milk, breakfast sausage, blueberries, and a bottle of Coke. A weird combo right. At least the list was not that long and we were able to get in and out of there quickly. Jeffrey was already starting to get on my nerves at that point. Lol.
Once home, it wasn’t too long until we went back out again. This time it wasn’t for errands but to go get dinner and see guardians of the galaxy 2. (I will be telling my opinions of it in a post tomorrow). It was good to get out of the house and do something fun since all I have been doing is either laying around or trying to get a job. Mind tangent time: I just remembered just now that I didn’t update yesterday so you guys didn’t know that I got a job at Oakley headquarters working in their lobby store!! Mind tangent over. So anywho… the movie was good and I enjoyed it.
Once we got home it was time to wind down. I did this by playing with my watercolor brush and trying to learn to do some handlettering and calligraphy. I am working on trying some new things that can integrate into my design work such as watercolor, handlettering, and film photography. (Another post sometime next week will detail my progress towards those goals).
And that brings us to now! I am sitting here in the dark, typing this post and trying to avoid a giant mosquito that somehow got into the house. If you don’t hear from me after tonight then you can safely assume that the mosquito has killed me in my sleep (lol jk or am I ?!?)
So goodnight everyone! I hope you all sleep well!
Ps. for those of you out there still reading this! I want you to keep some people in your prayers for me. A lot of my friends including my boyfriend Brett are currently out the country serving with our school out of the country. I ask that you pray for them and their teams that the lord bless them while they are there, that they can make an impact in the peoples lives that they meet, and to keep them save and healthy until they return.
Love, Kim ❤
Daily Update 5/9/2017
Hey everyone! So today I didn’t do a whole lot, but at the same time a lot! I was able to pretty much just get the blog exactly how I want it to look and as of right now I can officially say: Welcome to the new Insidethemind! In case you didn’t notice, I have accompanied the change with a brand new logo. Of course the old logo was good too, and it still represents me as well, but I felt change would be a good thing so yeah!
So my day. I woke up late (noon late) and then I walked up to the lake starbucks and got the blog in order. I also got some things together for my instagram account so I can start that back up later this week.
I then went home and did some chore before returning to dance for the first time in almost 9 months. It was weird to be back because it felt as if I never left. However, once I started dancing, I felt the time away. My knees are killing me now and I am very sore everywhere.
Now I am winding down and going to bed soon because I have a job interview at Oakley tomorrow! I am so excited because I would love to work there. I really hope it goes well and I am asking that you pray that it does!
Anywho good night everyone!
Love, Kim ❤
