Freshman Brooke Burgess is above doing yoga or breathing exercises in order to de-stress. Instead, one of her favorite methods of relaxation after a long, stressful day of high school and babysitting younger cousins is calligraphy. Upon discovering calligraphy and with a little bit of practice, Burgess quickly fell in love. She began practicing her skills on a regular basis, until she was satisfied with the work she could produce. Now, Burgess continues to use calligraphy as a creative outlet.

“I just saw [calligraphy from] tutorials on Instagram. I just thought it was really cool, because I liked drawing at the time. Well, honestly, I wasn’t a very good artist. I couldn’t draw anything. I still can’t. So I just kept trying [calligraphy] one day and I found that it was really easy for me, and I’ve been doing it for about two years. But, I think it’s just easy for me because it’s just curves and stuff, so it’s not that hard.
But you have to get used to it. And I really enjoy it. It’s really relaxing. I like doing quotes and stuff. I’m still perfecting it. It took me about a year to figure out how to copy it really well. It’s really relaxing. I usually do it when I’m stressed or something and its really helped me.”
