I do plan to continue my creative endeavors - I can't stop making art, it's who I am and how I express myself. I have several upcoming exhibitions, so stay tuned for news and announcements about that. In the meantime, I'm also training for another half marathon and a full marathon in January. In fact, I ran 15 miles today after school.
