As an art student, I never really have much free time. I’m either taking pictures, painting for my watercolor class, studying for art history, or trying to find some time in between to have a social life. I can’t even imagine what I would do if I had an entire week dedicated to nothing but being creative, mostly because I’ve never even had a weekend of that kind of time.
If I did have a full week to spare, I would:
- Update my website or even create an entirely new one. I created a website for my photography about a year ago, but I get so busy that I hardly ever have time to add new pictures and update the site itself. A week of dedicated creative time would allow me to edit all of my more recent photographs and upload them to my site. I would also spend some of that week going out and shooting more. Hopefully I will have the time before I graduate to update my website, especially since I know after I graduate I will be busy finding a job and starting to pay off student loans, etc.
- Personalize my blog. In addition to time, I would also need the money to buy my blog name so I could personalize it more. But if I had both, I would look to blogs such as A Beautiful Mess, enJOY it, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Fine and Feathered, and Shutterbean as inspiration.
- Scrapbook! In high school, I would scrapbook with my neighbor as often as I could. It’s such a great way to capture memories through photographs, notes, etc. in one place. All of my scrapbooking materials are back in California, so I don’t get to work on my books as often as I’d like. After I graduate I plan to pick up where I left off in high school.
I went to high school in California, and some of my previous classmates are also photographers. I enjoy exploring their websites to get ideas about what type of things I can add to my personal site. A few of the sites I love to roam [that you should check out!] are:
