The most amazing thing happened today...when sharing the vision to give youth the tools and training to engage their local community businesses to transform their relationship with plastics...someone asked us why we think we could ever do such a thing... (we have a plan to redirect 60 tons of plastics in the next year)
And the answer is ...who are we not to believe that we can make a change if we’ve been given the vision? ...
What vision of a beautiful and thriving planet are you holding?

Isn’t it funny
How we take such good care
of our houses, of our cars
All that fixing, repairing, and polishing
While ignoring the irreplaceable
Our one and only body
Our one and only planet
Imagine how the world would be
If we’d care for our body
If we'd care for the Earth
If we were healthy,
in our full potential
If the Earth would blossom
in her full diversity
Could it become our reality?
Today is Earth Day 2019.
It made me reevaluate my daily choices. Noticing the changes I’ve made so far, realizing how effortless they were. Finding new ways of doing my part. For me, cutting meat is easy. Recycling is easy. Using more second-hand stuff is easy. Choosing eco-friendly products is easy.
But traveling less?
Seeing the world and its beauty, different cultures, people, and animals are one of my greatest passions. It makes me feel alive, teaches me valuable life lessons, makes me respect the world. How can I let that go?
I’m ok compensating my CO2 by paying more.
I’m ok trying to use more other forms of traveling than flying.
I’m ok traveling more in my home country.
But giving up all my dream destinations? ...I’m not sure.
Yes, I’m worried about climate change. And yes, I love traveling.
The combination makes me feel confused, worried, even hypocrite.
But does it mean that I can't talk about these things 'cause I'm not doing everything perfectly? I don't think so.
Instead of pointing fingers and shaming, we should share information, share the best practices, share this mission that concerns every one of us. Signing petitions, voting for those who are ready to take action, who are promoting national & international cooperation.
Stop looking for the signs
To point you in the right direction
The world is a maze,
Go explore it.
There is no wrong direction
I am officially done my first year of uni, and there is nothing that is going to stop me from exploring the world for the next 4 months. I had my last exam on Thursday, and these past two days I have felt so calm and carefree. It's a foreign feeling, after being constantly stressed out for the last 8 months. But I love it, and I'm looking forward to fueling my creativity.
ps. I wore these @forever21canada earrings to prom last June. I cannot believe it's been almost 1 year since I graduated high school, it feels like it was forever ago, but also like it was just yesterday. It's crazy how fast time flies!
My entry for the “When We All Fall Asleep” Creative Challenge.
This is a visual representation that shows what I see when I fall asleep.
When I fall asleep where do I go?
I am floating away in a boat where there is poison or water surrounding me, not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and gasping for air. In my dream for me I feel that this represents the toxic negatives that surround in everyday life and the feeling being unable to breathe as often keeping in anxiety.
The pictures come alive and step out of their paintings. Photographic memories which are unknowingly taken throughout our lives and portrayed as deeper emotional portraits.
Doorways leading to different dream experiences some good and some bad. Choosing the right paths in life can be scary but otherwise sometimes rewarding, our dreams can interpret our feelings about our passes or fails for our future.
“The eyes are the windows to the soul”
I often dream about eyes and see into another persons world and how we are all different but yet we all are all the same as we feel the same emotions. Our eyes are quick to judge and give an instant like or dislike subconsciously. Just because one person may view someone as a bad person in their life doesn’t mean that another person will also view that person in the same way they may only see them as a positive.
I feel that dreams are our deeper inner thoughts mixing with our creative minds pushing our emotions good and bad to see how we truly feel subconsciously, we may not always like it but sometimes it can be fun!
I have incorporated pieces of Billies dream figures from the asset kit into my own artwork.
Billies songs I find intoxicating (in a good way!) and so I have mixed this into my artwork too.

Good luck to everyone who has entered :)
And broken bones
But my heads in the clouds
Can't bring me down
Reach above the sky and the stars
Until there is nothing
Standing between me
And my dreaming .
I think I have been setting myself up for failure recently. With exams going on, I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself to reach the standards I set. But there is a heavy price to pay for trying to reach unrealistic expectations, and that is being sleep deprived, not eating properly and just being super stressed out. It's great to set goals for yourself but not at the cost of your physical and mental health. It is obviously easier said than done, but definitely something I want to work on is not putting so much pressure on myself but doing my best and accepting the results of my hard work for what it is.
