Happy Self Care Loves <3

What has happened throughout the past couple of weeks has been extreme and intense. The first thing that came to my mind was the following words of "How can I help?". If you said those same words, understand that you can make a difference and be a part of the growth for the future by participating in the following below:

Donate!

There a bunch of non-profits, events, and churches accepting any donations and goods that could be of help to those in need because of the unfortunate disasters and phenomenas. 
Below are a couple articles that can be of use.

PRAY!

If you don't have a job or enough to give, you can always pray.
Prayer is what we all are in need right now.

Spread Love!

If there are any of your loved ones who live in these places, reach out and speak to them. If you know who lost some during these times, call them, pray with them, share love. Let them know you will be there in time of need.

I hope I didn't miss anything but if I did, do not hesitate to share and comment.

Love Ya'll and Remain Fancy <3

 

What's Your Ultimate?

If you don't know what Ka-me-ha-me-ha is... well you should. This ultimate from Dragon Ball Z is a classic known to everyone. I've barely watched the show and I know about this lol.

The most important lesson here is the ultimate. Goku reached his goal to master his Spirit Bomb with years of experience, just like you should be doing with your skills. As a part of our lives, we are constantly learning, not just during our school years but throughout our journey of life.

Since the last blog, you’ve should have just created your six favorite things. These six special things are extremely magical to you. You fancy them, obviously. They make you feel as if you were on top of the world. These things may or may not have an impact on your future plans and career goals.  But you can incorporate it into your ultimate goal.

Begin to think about what is your purpose and what were you put on this earth to do. Do you know your purpose? If you don’t, begin by acknowledging what you love, just as we did in the last blog.

Creating a mind map is one of the ways I layed out my goals. I usually do mind maps when I begin working on a new project to find the most creative ideas. Here's is a little step-by-step on how you can get there. Feel free to personalize it in a way that works well for you. Be fancy

First Things First

1. Start by listing out of your six favorites

This is just to beginning to creating your own personal mind map

3. What are you currently working on? Or what do you want to start today?

Pick another color and circle the ones you want to prioritize or any projects you are currently working on. Try not to pick too many!

4. What are your lifetime goals or career goals?

Use another color and circle the ones towards your career goals or goals you feel you would be able to do for a great amount of time in your life!

5. Anything Else!

Limited yourself to only 3 more addition goals if they aren't listed here as well. Its may not align with your main goals, but its okay. Thats why your fancy!

There it is!

Your goals that you want to accomplish. Now start them! If your not sure where to start, stay tuned! I'll go over using mini goals to reach your ultimate as well. But use these to think about your ultimate goal. These can always be edited and changed. This isn't a one and done event. Feel free to do this as much as you'd like until you are completely satisfied with the results. You should enjoy doing this!

This is only the beginning to greatness!

See you in the next blog and remember, stay fancy!

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

The first steps to find out what you are passionate about is figuring out what you love through what you are currently doing in your life. Whether it be a sport or your career. Whatever it may be, these hobbies and qualities brings out the best in you. It one of those things that if someone was to bring up the topic during your annual dinner outing with your friends, you are able to have a 24-hour long conversation about it and giddy with excitement. I've created a list of a few hobbies and items that are near and dear to my heart that bring out the best in me.

I've listed my top six favorites things below:

Purple is my all-time favorite color. In any tint and in any hue. Light purples like lavender bring out the relaxing and calm elements of purple which I believe is my favorite but I  love from all flavors of purple. I love everything that smells like Lavender as well. I use it as my essential oil for my humidifier, I use it as body soap, and body spray (it acts like a bug spray as well!). A small shoutout and huge thank you to all my love ones who have given me small tokens of love and gifts that were purple as well. You know my weakness well.

 

Ahhh. Manga and Anime. I fell in love with anime not too long ago. Maybe two or three years ago. Before that the only anime I've ever watched or knew about were probably Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, DBZ, and a few Studio Ghibli films. A few years ago the only shows I ever watch where superhero based (like Flash!). I realized I wanted something a little different so I began watching an anime called InuYasha. Ever since then, I've been watching all kinds of anime and reading manga. It inspired me to create a lettering blog based on some of my favorite inspiring quotes. Right now, I'm in love with My Hero Academia and I can't wait for Food Wars to come back. Share your recommendations!!

I believe I began to love games when I came home from elementary school on the afternoon of my 7th birthday to find that I received a Nintendo 64 as my present. Ever since then I've enjoyed gaming, especially LAN style where I would gather with my sisters, family, or a bunch of friends to play games. Currently I play Playstation 4 and PC games with my friends or go in solo. I love attending and volunteering for game events and I am currently deciding if I want to back to school to study game design and pursue that career. For right now, gaming is my love when I need some down time. I may stream some game play soon so stay tuned!

 

Now that I am not working, volunteering for events is my little side hobby but it also something I cherish very much. I love meeting new people, helping out others and giving back where credit is due. There are so many way to help a community in this world and it starts with us. I remember the first volunteer experience I've ever had was painting school on Martin Luther King Jr. Day when I was 12 or 13 years old. Every since then, I have always found volunteering an exhilarating experience. Some experiences where amazing and some where not so great. But my advice to you is go in with an open mind and try to make it the best experience you can. Remember, you are doing this because you care, unless its because you have to, then that's a different story.

Because baked ziti is my all-time favorited dish. Ever. Period. But seriously, I'll eat anything that taste great for my tastebuds.

 

We are living in the century of technology! It's all around us. Honestly, we can't escape it, even if we tried. Ever since I got my first computer, back when they had a booty in the back, I enjoyed fiddling around with it and trying to be small hacker when I was 12 years old. Now, as a visual designer and as someone who knows about tech and creativity, I know my way around Mac and PC and I hope to build and design my own fancy tower soon! It will probably be a powerful gaming PC that I can also use to plan out my ultimate goal of planet domination!

After sharing all of those wonderful fun things about myself, I want to hear from you!

So my challenge for you is to list your top six favorite things!!!

But heres the fun part, I want you to be as CREATIVE AS POSSIBLE.

I've created cool icons that are represented in a cute fancy way that can go with my branding and it has a personal relationship with me. So whether you want to paint, blog, vlog, draw, what ever it may be, express it in a creative way!
