“Believe me, I do not like idleness but work.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
When I’m not engrossed in schoolwork, I find myself with really nothing to do. Personally, being inactive makes me uncomfortable. I’ve always been a busybody and always to have something to occupy my time. I so easily get bored and stir crazy, so art has become a way for me to be productive and fully involved in something. Last summer, I challenged myself to create dailies, and that was a fun experience. I chose to represent different odd holidays that aren’t well known. It was a challenge but it made me feel good to have that. It was a personal feat to churn out a piece daily, on completely different topics and sometimes different mediums. But it kept me busy and inspired.
