Taking Time For Myself

I’ve just got out for the semester and I can’t believe these past few months have gone by so fast. I passed my dreaded Mid-Point Review, started another semester of graduate school at Academy of Art University, went to fashion week, and moved my blog to WordPress (which I never thought would get done). I’ve done so much that this semester was actually pretty action packed. I thought it would be lighter because the classes weren’t so heavy, but I was wrong.

I’m now trying to do more for myself. Doing for yourself is a great way to keep your body healthy and your immune system strong. I took up knitting again. It really is fulfilling to make something and have people compliment you on your item. I love to see their faces when I tell them I made something. Knitting is also soothing. I can just sit there, while watching tv, and knit all afternoon.

Over the weekend I went to a spa and got a much needed facial. My face needs more than just some regular TLC, so it was great to get my face cleaned and steamed. I loved that. Everything was calm and serene in the spa. They played that soft new age spa music that was so soothing, I almost fell asleep in the waiting area. The robe they gave me to wear was so pillow soft, so that could have been the reason why I almost fell asleep too.

Today I am going to treat myself to a movie. Some people don’t like doing things alone, and I admit, it can be a little intimidating to do things on your own. It really isn’t so bad once you try it. I am going to go see Black Swan. I hope that if I go early enough, there won’t be too many people in the theater to ruin the experience. I think some movies should be watched alone and others should be watched with a group. What are you doing to take time for yourself?
