Tv has not been on my mind lately, as much as I would love to stop and watch my favorite shows. I can barely juggle what's on my plate right now, so frivolous activities were the first to go. Occasionally, I'll allow myself to watch a movie off this free website I use though. I love movies. The latest one being Beauty and the Beast. I thought it was aight. Has anyone seen the new Power Rangers movie? I want to watch that one next. If you're a movie fan, check out this guy's YouTube channel ---> Chris Stuckmann
Anyways, I've been trying to do so many things in my day-to-day life and it's been absolutely amazing. I'm awakening to the realization that you have to HUSTLE as an Entrepreneur. I now make a lengthy and organized to-do list every night, before I go to bed.
One of the most recent changes, is an adjustment to my work schedule, which will take affect in a few weeks. Instead of working three 8-hour shifts, I'm going to work five 6-hour shifts and come in later in the afternoon/early evening. As a section leader with an order to write, this will make my life so much easier and I'll be there more days to work back stock and all that exciting shit. I'm going to tryyyyyy and manage this new schedule of working 30 hours, in an attempt to hold onto my health insurance, but if I get burned out, I'll bump down to five 5-hour shifts instead. Realistically, there's about a 99% chance that's what I'm going to end up doing.
Here's a preview of the current drawing I'm working on:
Sorry for the awful photo quality. My phone case sucks and blurs my photos, which is why I have a new case on the way. I'm finally getting a wooden case! I've always wanted one :)
I'm scheduled to complete this piece on the 24th. I have so much more to do, as well as import the photos into iMovie and create another YouTube video!
I've found it's super important to eat insanely clean when you're working nonstop, to keep your brain alert and focused. Well, actually all the time, but especially when you're working 60-80 hours a week. So what exactly do I do?
As an Entrepreneur, everything depicts the outcome of my life right now. So essentially, I consider everything productive (that contributes to my art career, health, mind) as work. As soon as I wake up, I jump on my trampoline for five minutes and get the blood and oxygen flowing. Than I make a smoothie and a green shot mixed with matcha green tea, before laying out in the sun. Than I juice, oil pull, do dishes, work out (I've been slacking and only going to the gym like 2-3x a week), draw/film, do photoshoots for social media, meal prep, chores and run errands (mainly to FedEx and the Post Office these days), shop on Amazon, make a protein shake, blog and I've been getting in a groove of stretching for an hour every night. I met a really cool (and fellow vegan) guy on Instagram who introduced me to Terrence McKenna, so I've been listening to his speeches while I stretch. His mind is fascinating. Plus he helps me zone out, as I'm falling deeper and deeper into the pain of each stretch, making it more bearable.
I want to get to a point where this all just becomes effortless and natural. That's why I can't wait for the day when I no longer need another job to support myself financially, so I have 25-30 more hours a week to dedicate to myself. That'll be a chapter in my life I greatly look forward to. I just need to stay focused and give it time, because that day is on the horizon.

Stay focused y'all...and if you're not focused enough, GET FOCUSED! Time is of the essence :)
