It’s monday, but it feels like a great new start monday to me.
I spent pretty much the last four days in my bed. I had one of those multi-day migraines that you have to go get a shot for. Until now I had only heard about those from other people. Wow. I have always been a huge fan of modern medicine but this reminded me how grateful I am to not have been born in one of my favorite olden days chunks of history.
The migraine was boring. I hurt, but I couldn’t sleep. I could just think about how badly I felt and I needed to be distracted. So I listened to a lot of podcasts and watched a lot of YouTube. When I felt better I spent a lot of time trying to find something different to do with my iPad.I discovered that since I have Adobe Creative Cloud, I also have those apps on my iPad. That is amazing and might be life changing, to be overly dramatic about it (like I do). I have Photoshop Sketch, and I spent a lot time playing in that app.
One thing I played with was a new favorite way to journal when I just need to empty my mind and clear things up in there a bit. I just wrote until a screen was full. Then I changed colors, changed pens, added a layer and kept going. It doesn’t take physical space and it looks kind of cool. When I write like that, what I'm saying really doesn't matter at all, it's just the act of thinking it, and for whatever weird reason I think better when I'm writing out the words.
I will definitely be doing it again.
