Be the Twist & Turn of Your Future

I used to write all the time about nothing to everything you could ever imagine. From love, sex, and drugs to hopes and broken dreams. 

But now it just seems like everything is this in this cell locked up. I’m having a major writers block and I’m not even much of a writer. I wish I could go back to the day when I first started AAU where I could pour my heart out with words and phrases, poetries and such. But that’s not gonna happen is it? 

Time. It’s not something that we can ever get back when it’s wasted, nor is it something that we can control. We cannot just simply stop time, make it go backwards so we don’t regret the things we had done, nor can we make time go forward to cover a consequence. When we look back on time, we notice the little bits and pieces that we never really quite understand. Everything can be out of focus and seemingly directed towards one direction, but in truth, we will never know what’s coming to us.

Every little piece of me shatters with a twist and a turn, every little piece of my life comes undone and becomes reality in {the end}.

**Kaleidoscope; it’s the theme of my life. The theme of my college portfolio. Where as you twist and turn the object you see something different, whether it’s shapes, colors or pattern. This concept completely resembles who I am as I complete myself in different mediums whether it’s art or life. I never really thought about my life in design and in reality until after coming up with this concept.

A kaleidoscope is a tube containing many beautiful pieces that allows anyone to look into it and feel in awe. The pieces are broken yet come together as a whole to create a beautiful item. The broken pieces are like the process pieces of each assignment, in which I have come to create the final product. Not only do the broken pieces resemble the process, but they are also the start of an unfinished business, the start of a hopeless adventure, and the pieces to a bigger puzzle.
Ever since I attended my first art class in high school,
I have enjoyed every medium being used, every process taken to where I am today. I sit, I contemplate, I ponder,
I think, I enjoy, I question, I draw, I write, I sketch, I color,
I look, and most importantly, I enjoy every task given
and how each process comes together. The process from the beginning to the end has finally resulted in where I stand and who I have become today.
