This piece was a self-care project. It can be challenging to make enough time for the things we enjoy the most with having such busy schedules and so many obligations. I schedule in time for my artistic outlets that bring peace and joy into my life. Such as painting, taking pictures out in nature while on a hike or walk, amongst other activities that bring a healthy balance to my life. I am working on my AAOT here at LCC and I plan to transfer to the U of O this fall term 2022. I am majoring in Psychology to be a counselor in the future. It’s important to me to live my best life so that I may help others do the same once I reach my new career goal.
