Yesterday was kind of a stressful day. I had to find and photocopy every performance and student contract I’ve collected over the last five years to prove my self-employment on my student loan application. They also need my university transcript, my high school transcript, my notices of assessment from the last five years, and a notarized statement saying I am self-employed.
It’s like they don’t believe me or something…
I was getting all wound up and worried that my application would never be accepted… and then the light from the fading sun outside my window made everything soft and beautiful and my mind became softer with it.
The image I captured during this moment is my reminder to soften and unwind when things start to feel like a hopeless tangled web. Classes start in two weeks so this reminder is a timely one for me.
