I decided to do a Paint Nite for my 26th birthday, which may I say, I surprisingly enjoyed. I wouldn’t consider myself an artist by any means, but I do have a creative side of me that comes out every once in awhile.
I have respect for all the artists out there (i.e, my uncle, my dad, and even my brother). Props to everyone, it definitely isn’t easy.
My perfectionist tendencies were definitely coming out while painting. Constantly trying to get it like the model painting, trying to blend colors… Who knew making the color orange was so hard?! But nonetheless, the Paint Nite was a success! I am definitely down to do it again, moreover I’d definitely like to increase my skill.
This Paint Nite event was held in Downtown… Midtown? Sacramento. As previously mentioned in my last blog, Sacramento shares a very special place in my heart.
Almost all of the individuals in the photo above, I have known since my freshman year of college, a selected few are from my hometown and I have known for even longer.
I am very much thankful to everyone. I know I don’t say it enough, or even at all.
These people have played a significant part in my life in one way or another. Anything from college roommates to even being a former significant other. Although we all don’t live in Sacramento anymore, I am happy to know it just takes one drive up or one gathering to bring us all together again.
This night ended as our nights always do. Catching up on life, discussing ADULTing responsibilities, future travel plans, and dating statuses. We are all doing are own things now, life paths are taking us all in different directions, and I’m glad that we’re able to still stay connected in spite of what is going on in our lives.
