Every Monday, we’ll be sharing the ‘right now’ of our lives. Play along with us by using the printable we made and tagging us on Instagram (#ldmcurrently)! The free printable can be downloaded through instructions found here.
CH: Austin Kleon’s latest book, “Show Your Work”! It’s really inspiring, especially for creatives. As a perfectionist I don’t like showing unfinished work, but he has a great point about the advantages of showing your creative process.
Yam: nothing other than e-mails this week.
Pinky: tributes on Facebook to Helena, a high school batchmate who passed away last week. She was so kind and she loved so fiercely. Rest in peace.
CH: Bruno Mars’ halftime show performance! Wish I were in Manila for his concert. Since I’m not, this will have to do.
Yam: several episodes of the animated Mr. Bean series with my nephew. He loves it!
Pinky: random internet videos: this one of the singing nun on The Voice in Italy (love her energy!); this one my sister sent me of penguins tripping over a rope (penguin rite of passage? Too funny); this one of Anderson Cooper on Seth Meyers’ talk show (love them both); this one of Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel singing ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ with the help of a voice-looping app (Monday GVs!)
Currently… listening to:
CH: A lot of old school John Mayer, just because. Helps me concentrate on work!
Yam: my Bruno Mars playlist. Ahhh <3
Pinky: Ellie Goulding for a few days now. I love her cover of “Your Song” – it’s old, but I still get chills when I hear it. I also love this remix of “Anything Could Happen”
CH: This Lifeprint printer, it’s currently in Kickstarter and I’m debating whether or not to get it or hold out for the Instax share!! Gotta save up first though…
Yam: to go to the beach ASAP. It’s almost summer and the weather is perfect for a beach trip. I need the winning combo of sun, sand, and sea.
Pinky: another rest day. The weekend just flew by!
CH: Hi and the great community of writers, photographers, and illustrators I get to connect with for my job (I’m currently community manager for the site). So many amazing creative people all over the world!
Yam: the Bruno Mars concert last Saturday! I’m still on a concert high. I think he’s even better live and his band is awesome, too!
Pinky: that Starbucks sent a double-upsize coupon for their caramel macchiato. SO GOOD. I’m finally turning into a coffee drinker! I even have it on the weekends now.
