Invest in Yourself

In contrast to my normal sequence of events, I thought of the title for today’s blogpost before I wrote it so looks like today’s post is an (obvious) play on words. You know, because I love this faux leather vest (as a shirt, over a shirt, etc) and I think inVESTing in yourself is the best thing since sliced bread.

When was the last time you invested in yourself? Whether it’s taking that creative writing class you’ve been eyeing or getting out of your comfy bed and going on that morning run your body has been craving, the concept of investing in yourself may seem trite (and sound a lot like the hook in the Biebster’s single “Love Yourself”) – but I think it’s something to be considered more often. One thing I did to invest in myself (and this blog) over the past few months was take a photography class at the Visual Arts Center here in Richmond. To tell the truth, my attention span loathes the idea of sitting in a class for 3 hours, but my heart is always happy that I went. I’ve met some awesome people and learned so many tricks of the trade that have helped Rebecca and I out with our photography for The Crystal Press. Novices just the same but we are trying, folks!

That brings me to my next point (fueh, I need to take a breather this is a LONG one): the art scene in Richmond. Richmond has some of the best murals in the world and we are so excited to celebrate that and art in general at the Richmond Street Art Festival this weekend. To make it even better, we are launching #rvaPin 2 at the festival as well! We posted the first picture of it on Instagram last night here (drumroll for Reb’s photography skills please..) Anywho – come see us, get some pins, and support youth art education. It’s going to be a helluva time!
