2015 Color Mix Kansas City

This week me and my fellow ASID officers took a trip to Kansas City to be part of the annual Sherwin Williams color forecast. This is an event to unveil the new color palettes for the upcoming year as well as the inspiration and drive behind them. This was my first time participating and I really enjoyed it. My favorite thing about the new colors is that they are all linked together by a common theme of metamorphosis. Sherwin Williams took a look at whats changing in the world (nature and technology) and took inspiration from that and created a brand new set of colors. Their influencers were a lot of things from space travel to Lady Gaga. I have a newfound appreciation for this paint... it's not just pretty colors. While we were there we also did a little shopping and exploring of course!

Onward my boy

This is one of the best times to be in the city: the weather was beautiful and the sun cast a golden glow across everything. As I rode my bike through the park, I couldn't stop thinking about how right everything seemed. Like, my whole life had lead me to this point. I wasn't just riding a bike through a park, I was riding into a brand new life. The breeze that blew across my cheeks also blew away my hesitations, fears, and worries. I peddled faster, just in case my old life caught back up with me. I was so tired of people doubting in me. I was tired of trying to make you love me...I was tired of loving you. I didn't want to think about the small town I had come from. I didn't want to think about how I haven't talked to my dad in years. I didn't want to think about failing school. I just kept peddling. I never wanted to stop. Above me birds danced in the sky and below me leaves rustled as I sped past them. I've heard people say that they wish they could freeze a moment of their life and live it in it forever, this was my moment. Nothing really mattered. Or, the only thing that mattered was that I was there. I was living. I am still there, riding through that park. Even now as I sit at this desk and type... I feel that cool autumn breeze rushing past me. I hear the birds and see the sun peaking through the canopy of high-rises and trees. I don't look back and I peddle faster, faster and faster.
