One of my goals for 2020 was to unlock my creative side a little more. I used to spend so much of my time drawing, painting, taking photos and writing. I miss it so much as I just felt so much more free when I was expressing myself through creativity.
As I’m trying to get back into the creative side of my brain, I thought I would make a list in my notes full of tips that would help me be more creative. While I was writing, I figured that this list could help others too so I decided to share it here on my blog.
I started this blog in January but before that, I had been writing a blog for 5 years. I don’t have access to that blog anymore and I’ve rebranded which means that I lost a few of my older followers and gained a few new ones.
Due to the rebrand, I thought I would use my blog to reintroduce myself.
So, here’s some things about me that you might not know yet..
I am a shy extrovert
Let’s just get this straight, there is such things as a shy extrovert because shyness is not related to introversion or extroversion. I love talking to people but I am a shy person. I thrive off building rapports with people, making friends and chatting to strangers I meet on the streets. I feel great when I get talking to someone new and I feel that I can truly be myself. That doesn’t mean that I don’t get shy though. Shyness is a form of light social anxiety when a person feels awkward in public. Thus, an extrovert can be shy. Which, by the way, is a complete nightmare. I can’t do what I love to do (be sociable) because of my social anxiety.
I attemted my A Levels three times but dropped out each time
I’ve always loved learning, just not in a schooling environment. I like to learn on my own terms and even then, I struggle to retain any information. The first time I went to college, I attempted my A-levels and dropped out because I moved away. Second time, I dropped out to spend more time with an ex. Third time, I went for one day and had a panic attack. I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be trying A-levels again.
I love drawing and painting
Although I absolutely suck at it, I love to draw and paint. I find it therapeutic and it allows me to express myself freely. I stopped drawing for the longest time because I figured that I would never be good enough. However, recently I started drawing again and I love it.
I get the urge to travel almost every day
I love to travel. I think it’s because I get to escape everyday reality and explore new places. I dream of just packing a suitcase and traveling to my next destination. I would love to visit Japan and that’s where I’m hoping to book next so fingers crossed, I can make that a reality.
I rarely ever get bored
I really don’t see how someone could get bored when there are a million and one things to do in life at all times. In fact, I get very overwhelmed by the lack of time I have to get things done each day. Plus, if I do run out of things to do, I can always scroll through Twitter, write a blog post or watch YouTube videos. There’s so many content creators out there that you can never run out of content to consume.
I don’t have any friends
I know, I know, everyone says this. But for me, it;s true. I have Simon and that is it. Sure, I have internet friends who I speak to sometimes but I don’t have anyone to meet up with for a coffee. I don’t have any friends to go shopping with or go and catch a movie with. That is why I spend so much time on my own and with Simon. Not that I don’t like that. I do, I just wish I had some friends too.
