Unleash the artist in me
After a few days of holiday celebration, I finally got the chance to arrange my books. And as I was about to read one, I noticed I no longer have any bookmark to use. So this morning, I grabbed some old notebooks and borrowed some pens from my siblings.
When I was a kid, I always get fascinated with art. I fell in love with art first before literature. I started writing for our school publication was when I entered third grade. I can still remember those days when I get so excited if I finish my homework early because I get to do some art stuff and write stanzas of what I believed were poetic back then. It continued that way until high school. I did paintings and sketching for projects and as a way to kill time on vacations. But when I entered college, numbers and computations replaced art. I had to focus on my course or else I will not graduate. Good thing, literature remained my avenue to release some school-stuff stresses. I became part of a Facebook page and contributed short stories. I continued my passion in writing and somehow lost the interest in my chosen career. I thought art would be back but photography came in. I was and is still in love with photography. That later on I realized, photography is still an art, a digital art.
During the past few days of not writing and updating on Steemit, I was busy reading books. And that was the time, when I realized I need some bookmarks. But instead of buying, I actually made them.
I started the "whole day bookmark making project" with a doodle art. This doodle art is my gift to my boyfriend because like me, he is also fond of reading books and has no bookmark to use. Also, for the holiday, he gave me books. So this is the lease thing I can do for him.
After finishing that doodle art bookmark slash name tag, I decided to do some more.
I really had a great time, making bookmarks today. It felt like I was reconnecting to something from the past.
Two goals unlocked - unleashing the artist in me and getting ready for a whole week of some good books to read.
This has been @nikkabomb saying, "Get lost in art. And find your way back in art, as well."

I was destined to be a successful civil engineer but my heart belongs to literature. And if I have learnt something from the past years of struggles, it is maybe this - "Sometimes a leap of faith is what you need in order to find happiness. Because if you are not to become a happy person, then what's the purpose of life then?".
I tried working in an industry with the use of my maximum skills in my chosen field and I was earning big (bigger than what I expected), yet I was not happy. In between those times, I found deeper and stronger interest in my first and second love - writing and photography.
And so here I am, in my little corner in the blockchain. I hope you had a good read and check out more here ---> @nikkabomb. Lovelots.
