When it comes to fueling my passions, I often turn to two things – Pinterest and Music. While I love my new wave and Voltaire, when I’m working or driving, I usually listen to electro, electro clash, dark wave, ethereal wave, progressive house, trance or psy trance music. I’m very passionate about music.
One of the reasons that I’m so passionate about music is that I started singing from a very early age when I was in Church. I sang all through junior high, high school and most of college. I also started playing several instruments in junior high and high school. I started with the bassoon and moved on to mallet percussion instruments. I was in drumline. Music was a part of my daily routine and not only did it keep me out of trouble, it permeated every part of my life. Percussive instruments soon became something I craved to hear, which is how I fell in love with electronic music.
When I’m working these days I love music with a heavy beat because it keeps me moving and motivated. It helps me to write and keeps the creative juices flowing, especially when I’m spending hours a day writing on various topics. It makes the time pass quickly and improves my mood, as opposed to sitting in oppressive silence.
I’ve taken to listening to happy hardcore and dance when I’m working out because it makes my body want to move. It takes something that I feel is tedious and turns it into time I enjoy spending on myself. Because I listen to motivational music, it has helped me to become more passionate about taking better care of myself.
When I’m relaxing, I still listen to music, but I usually turn to Pinterest! I can (and have) spent hours getting lost in Pinterest. I turn to Pinterest when I’m looking for a new recipe for Ray and I to try out in the kitchen. That’s how I found my Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies recipe. I look at Pinterest when I need ideas for how I should redo my master bathroom (as that’s one of the next home improvement projects on my list). Whether I’m in a makeup rut or not, I look at Pinterest for inspiration for new eyeshadow styles to try and nail art tutorials. And of course, I look at Pinterest for cute animals! It lifts my spirits and makes me happy.
Now, you know that I’m very passionate about hair because of my Hair Obsessed board on Pinterest. I’m seriously passionate about beautiful hair. I love colored hair in all shades of the rainbow. I love sexy short styles to long, complex ones. I do spend time daily looking for new hair to pin to inspire myself and others. Each time before I go in to see my stylist to get a haircut, I spend hours looking at different hairstyles to find the right one. Oftentimes, I like the fringe from one cut, the back from another, and the sides from a third, so I take pictures of all 3 and bring them to my stylist. She’s as passionate about hair as I am!
Between Pinterest and my music, I keep myself motivated and fuel my passions on a daily basis. I never run out of ideas when I can turn to Pinterest to get the creative juices flowing. I can always push myself to try a little harder when I’m listening to great music. Between the two, it’s easier for me to do more of what I love.
