In need of Inspiration

I have been thinking about what I'm going to do for my senior project for the longest time. I started thinking about it last school year when it began to hit me that I was soon going to be a senior as well and I, too, was going to have to go through everything last year's seniors went through. It has been really hard for me to find inspiration with everything that's going on, but I know sooner or later I will find something. I want to do something life changing; experience things I've never experienced, and if it's not life changing to others, at least it should be life changing for me. I want my project to be something I am proud of and will remember for the rest of my life. I want to be able to look back when I'm older and say, "You see that? I did that." I just hope I will be able to accomplish that this year. I want to do great things and not limit myself this year. This is my last year in high school and I don't want it to go to waste. This only happens once in a lifetime and I wanna enjoy it to the fullest in every aspect. I don't want to look back at this at the end of the year only to see that I didn't accomplish anything, so this is kind of like those letters you write to yourself and look at years from now, except I will look at this a year from now. This really is for ourselves and it's a great opportunity to do something we have always wanted to do. For now, I will keep searching for inspiration all around me in hopes to come up with a great senior project.

  1. One of the many conversation we had over the summer was about how you love art. I have seen what you are capable of and you are a very talented young artist. It is your passion. It is something that you look forward to doing and it is something that you really put time and effort into to make sure it comes out perfect. Can art change the world though? YES! It is one of the few things that actually can. Just think about your art and how you can use that talent to change the world.
    Watch this TED talk about this one man changed the world through art.
