    Summer Mentorships & exciting things!!

    Hey SD fam!!! I recently decided to seek out some mentors for myself, mostly due to all the inspiration I get from all you wonderful people! It was something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, but after talking with some of you, I was tired of just thinking and ready to start taking...

    Hello everyone! I'm.. too ambitious?

    I can relate to this in some ways! I actually found a ted talk that gave me a word for this called: multi-potentialyte (spl?). It was a pretty good ted talk too! Look it up! It’s not a bad thing to be interested or pursue many things. But I agree with @Kylon sometimes you have to say “no” to...

    Anyone down for a SD Mentor Program??

    ^^^^^ I am so here for this. I think a lot of people could benefit from this! Me, included. (I need a mentor in my life) Also @Sam I just watched a few of your videos from your 30 day Habit Tracking thread and I was so impressed! That's a lot of dedication and it's awesome. Love it.

    Music.

    I listen to SOOO much music it's insane haha. My work is too quiet without it. One of my favorites right now is the Proleter playlist on Pandora. I also love listening to classical ballet music if words become too distracting. Other artist faves: AJR, Jon Bellion, H.E.R., Gramatik, SZA, and 90s...

    I have to admit guys, I'm tireddd and my willpower bank is runnin pretty low. But I had to step back and remind myself: to not have the "I have to" mindset, but more of the "I get to" mindset. This week I *get to* have the opportunity to work hard with an awesome group to choreograph, perform...

    How to strive for originality? But not let it cripple you?

    That is definitely useful! Thanks for all your insight Gerrit!! Yeah I think I need to focus on making this first for myself because that was the driving factor, but I'm sure it could possibly turn into something over time.

    How to strive for originality? But not let it cripple you?

    Hey fam squad! I’ve recently started brainstorming for a product idea that’s in its extreme infancy. Aka a brain-drain-cluster-mess word document. The idea first came about as something I’d just like to make for myself to use. But then I figured hey maybe others down the road could be interested...

    Monday's are my favorite. After work I go to a coffee shop to kill time & do personal work before my dance class later. Green tea + SD forum inspiration + brain-storming for my next project in a word doc + knowing I get to dance in an hour = best way to start the week ~

    Hello from Durham, NC! I'm April!

    Hey SD Fam! Some of you probably know me from the Facebook group! I’m April, from Durham NC! Although I’m not a legit dropout, since earning my Fine Arts degree at UNC-Charlotte, I’ve come to learn about the ideas of unschooling and self-directed learning over the past 2 years. I love it! After...
