keeping it low key...
So today is April 1st, the beginning of my namesake/birthday month and I usually go on pseudo-narcissistic rant about how it’s “the month of me!” and that I have free reign to make it all about me for an entire month; how I get to celebrate the entire month instead of just the day of my birthday. A month long celebration of me! …blah, blah, blah. I’m just not feeling it this year. Maybe it’s because I’m resigned to the fact that I’m the only one celebrating, or maybe it’s because it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been able to keep up the excitement past a few days. Either way, this year is going to be low key.
On another note… since I’ve decided to do the whole Pantone Spring color challenge that I put on myself, I looked at the most recent earrings and realized that without trying, I used one of the colors. It looks to match Blue Curacao to me. I’ve been made hyperaware of this season’s colors after following a link that a friend sent me for a video hosting site. It had nothing to do with fashion or anything but in the middle of the screen there were these squares that were many of this season’s colors(not all of them though, each square was for a different category or something of stuff on the site and I guess they didn’t have enough categories to need each color). The squares were even rounded like when you go see them on the Pantone site. So after that, I’ve been paying attention to how and where I see the colors. I had no idea that these color forecasts were so important but I guess they must be because they’re popping up all over the place.
So now that Spring Break is here, maybe I’ll get a chance to work on some more colors …if I catch up to all of my homework. *Fingers crossed!*
