build a balance

In the days of kings and queens I was a jester. 
They treat me like a god, 
oh they treat me like a leper. 
See me move back and forth between both. 
I'm trying to find a balance.
I'm trying to build a balance.
-Atmosphere, Seven's Travels 

Welcome to build a balance! My name is Amanda Marie and I'm 22 years old -- you know, that scary age when you have to start figuring out what your "real life" is going to be all about.

Carpe Diem was always my mantra. Seize the pleasures of the moment without concern for the future.

But the future is starting to come at me like a big sack of bricks and I’m thinking it’s about time I get a little more concerned--while still having a great time of course. 

This is where building a balance comes in.

In the midst of internships, senior year of college and heading into grad school, I wanted to create an outlet to balance my thoughts and ensure fun and creativity still has a space to thrive. 

Come along with me as I try to find my balance. Maybe along the way I can help to build yours too.
