The Challenge: Spend 15 – 30 minutes doing something you love that you don’t often have the chance to do.
Today was one of those days that was jammed-packed from start to finish. Everything was on a schedule. There was not much wiggle room for doing things I love to do. However Jason and I did have about 45 minutes to kill before our event this evening, so we went walking in this quaint downtown area of our destination and spent about 25 minutes in a local mom and pop bookstore. Instead of going to business books or even self-help books (which often feels like work), I picked up a book on fashion. I enjoyed sitting there reading about different clothes that my ‘body-type’ should and should not wear. I love just sitting in bookstores and picking up fun books. Too often I read for work, not fun. Why? Because it’s more productive, This challenge helped me to realize that I don’t always have to be doing something productive.
I am an artist, and I love what I do. But it’s been a while since I’ve drawn just for fun.
I used to do it all the time, of course. Recently I’ve looked back at some of my old artwork. I used to do a more portrait work and montages. I look back fondly at my time in school when I spent a lot of time experimenting with different media and subject matter. I’ve been looking forward to a day when I would get back into doing art for art’s sake, almost like a hobby.
So today, even though I’m in San Francisco, miles away from my trusty art supplies, all I needed was a pencil and a complimentary Wingate Inn paper pad to sketch Boba Fett. It was fun, relaxing, and stress relieving. Imagine that.
So, who was most creative with today’s challenge? Who went beyond the comfort zone and put the biggest hammer on Adultitis? Who did a better job of capturing the spirit of childhood, Kim or Jason? Cast Your Vote!
