See Myself as an Artist? Naaa...not yet, anyway! 9/9/22*

I don't consider myself an Artist as someone like Eryka Badu speaks of artistry. To Me, that implies you have something good, wonderful, and great at what you do that people like it, crave it, and swoon over it. Nor am I going to sit here and sell myself short like I have done so many times in the past. This is my BIRTHDAY MONTH! Time to get into the VIRGO'S GROOVE (in fact, I think I'm going to listen to that once I'm done here) and create something for myself.

So, today I affirm that while I can't confidently call myself an artist yet, I am working my way up to feeling comfortable in using that term and I'm good with that.

Today marks the start of my vacation and it feels good and different somehow. Normally when I go on vacation I feel guilty and wonder how taking a vacation makes me look. Yep, I know I shouldn't feel that way because I would be replaced within a month of leaving, but it is what it is. This time, however, I'm different. I need it and I crave it. I already feel better if not a bit lost because I don't know what to do with my time and think it is still too soon to start running errands. I just need to enjoy this day.

I already started writing and that alone has done wonders for my mood. While I as writing the thought of this thought and figured I'd get it down for prosperity.

A lot is going through my head and there are a lot of different creative directions I can go in today. I'm trying to just flow with the water and go where the creativity takes me since I haven't done that in a while (if ever).

Let this be the start of Melanite Magic and the Melanite Omniverse.

*Another version of this exists on my yellow notepad. Future me, I challenge you to find it. Also seek the version out in Science Project Notebook.
