New list from Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists. For this one I decided not to calligraphy the whole thing because I wouldn’t have gotten all my favourite quotes on the page otherwise I wrote the numbers in uncial and decorated them with coloured boxes and also wrote out the challenge using uncial, but used my handwriting for the rest.
I’m a big-time quote-junkie, so I had no trouble coming up with plenty for this list. I collect all my favourites in a little notebook anyway. They’re also great for writing on envelopes when you send someone a letter.

Working hard for my dream-life
I’m currently trying hard to buckle down and get to work on some core aspects of my life. A biggie at the moment is work and finances, I’m not someone who likes bothering potential clients for work, (I’m a designer, not a salesperson) it’s something I struggle with and also something I like to procrastinate on. Woohoo.
I’m at a big turning point of my life right now, stuff is happening, dreams are being fulfilled, I’m slowly but surely creating the life that I want, but there’s also a lot of confusion and feeling lost. There’s a lot of new stuff to learn about freelancing and making my way in the “grown-up world” and sometimes stuff gets overwhelming. But I’m pushing forward, and though sometimes progress feels way to slow, whenever I look back, I’m quite surprised at how much I’ve accomplished.
It’s hard, but it feels right. And I’m glad that I’m doing this.
52 Lists is a project by Moorea Seal. I have been using it since the beginning to practice my calligraphy skills. Here you can find all the lists I’ve done so far. If you’re interested in calligraphy inspiration, visit my Pinterest Calligraphy board.
