hug it out.

13 Sep


Sometimes you just need a little inspiration to get you moving, right? Look at me, for instance. I’m a 2011 college graduate that’s put in over 200 applications to full and part time job openings and I’m still unemployed. I moved back to my college town. I’m beginning the process of researching grad school programs from scratch and I’m struggling to figure out who I am and what defines me now, because I’ve changed a lot since May. On top of all that, I’m still applying regularly to jobs. It’s upsetting to hear some of my friends tell me that I’m not trying hard enough. I’ve thought long and hard about what I could possibly be doing wrong… I’m not sure what more I can do. I hit the lowest of all lows last week and I was in desperate need of some inspiration. I’m a very visual person and I love any excuse to be artsy fartsy, so I decided to write my favorite quotes (and boy are there a lot of them) on drawing paper and stick them to the wall above my couch. This is the “quote project” I’ve been referring to… Anyway. I’ve drawn out about 60 quotes so far, which might sound like a lot, but it’s nowhere near enough. I want to fill the entire wall with MOTIVATION! Check out the progress I’ve made so far (the lighting is a little off in some of the pics… I live underground. Bear with me!):

The beginning...

Those are just a few. Thoughts? Feel free to share  your favorite quotes! Like I said, I want to cover the entire wall, so I need as many as I can get :)
