OTM #5: Ebb and Flow

Hello again, happy Wednesday!

Lately I’ve been really overwhelmed with the world. Although my last post praised the gloominess of March, I’ve fallen victim to it myself, it seems. I miss my summer job where I work with plants in the sun all day, and I find myself counting down the days to the end of the semester. Despite this negative mindset, I’m sticking with the knowledge that it’s all temporary. It’s okay to feel an ebb and flow in motivation, to occasionally spend the entire day daydreaming about where you wish you were, or a fake world you made up. It’s a rainy, gross day out, and sometimes you need to reserve time to listen to sad music alone (or even cry). At the end of the day, we keep moving forward! Spring is here, and we will (eventually) see the sunlight. To my fellow students who also lack motivation, keep going, and make sure you take plenty of breaks and take care of yourselves.


Hello, I'm Katelyn Sliwinski! I'm a senior studying communications with a minor in writing, but I previously was studying digital illustration, so I'm happy to be sharing my art with you! I want to use my artwork to appreciate the mundanities of daily life; it's improved my mental health tenfold to just stop and look around once and a while, so I seek to capture that joy and show it to you!
