These happened. Got frustrated and made a demon with the same composure with pastel. I like it. Just did it to clear my head.

The other one is what my previous post started out as. There are aspects of her I like better than what I have now. And some I don't.

I'm going to make this body on a canvas soon, its something I could make unique each time..

I wanna relay a serious thing. Cause there's a lot a sadness sometimes and it's okay to feel emotions and express them. About how degrading it is to beg for hugs. How defeating it is to ask for time. How out of place it feels to want someone to be around just so you can temporarily forget the burdens the mind places upon the heart.

All of these things cost nothing yet asking for any of them is truly hard to do. While most people beg for money or possessions, people with broken hearts and in need of love ask for nothing but moments and memories.

I want people to understand that what you see on the outside of your family and friends doesn't represent what is happening on the inside. And all these things that cost you nothing mean more than the rarest gems to people who have the courage to ask for them.

It's not easy to ask for these things. It's also embarrassing because most people just think everyone gets them without having to ask. But some people don't. And to push aside what little pride even exists and ask for hugs or time or smiles is a challenge on top of the reasons they're asking for.

People who feel the deepest despair have accepted it's okay to ask for moments. They have never been the problem with humanity. The problem is that the people who are called upon are unable to comprehend how such a simple gesture can save someone's life.

So I thought I'd remind people to use our hearts when it feels like they wanna speak. Consider 1 hour of your life an entire lifetime to someone who asks for it. It's okay to have feelings. Love is beyond the body and mind. It's so many things wrapped into 1 thing, and it becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

In honor of my ex girlfriend. I'm struggling with a face because it changed so often.

Why won't G+ allow me to change the privacy setting after a post??! I post shit (yes, all my posts are shit) that I realize I've forgotten to change the privacy setting on, but I have to delete it and RE-fucking-post it?!

When I upload a video because I'm so frickin excited and forget to direct it to a single person or my wonderful friends, I have to upload it ALL again....this is redundant.

Even Facebook has that option....G+. Listen. Make it simpler.

Im glad you laughed! I cant get mad in real life, so sarcastically written rants are all I'm good for on the interwebs.

If I could combine Google and Facebook (83% Google, 17% Facebook, exactly) and make my own social media, I would.

In honor of "National Iced Tea Day" (today), I replaced fabric softener with green tea when I did laundry and results were lame.

Use chocolate milk instead.

I love being called "Spaghettio Hair" :) It was always my fave.

Dudette. You just broke the 11 year streak spaghettio curls had on me.

I have evolved.
I no longer have curls.
I have tendrils.

You. Rock.

So this is what I'm doin. Tell me this isn't badass. It's maybe 30% done. The entire page will be full. I've only started color on the areas I've manicured a little...but now I'm seein I'm not comfortable with some of those. So edits galore.

My brain is taxed and every idea I've had is bad and every involuntary scribble leads to awesome results...so basically, I got artist's block but it comes when I stop trying.

Story

Not all who wander are lost. And most who believe they know where their paths lead are mistaken.
Introduction
I'm someone who is searching for alternative meanings in life :-)

I'd like to believe I would accept my evening sun going supernova if I wake up appreciating my morning sun rise in it's wondrous beauty beforehand :-)

I adore art, music (yeah music is art, but lets not limit ourselves...), and photography!  

I LOVE comedy!  And ironically...I love tragedy :-P  Can we really understand comedy without appreciating tragedy, though? o-O

I respect talent, and I'm so happy to be able to share my thoughts and art with the kind and SO amazingly talented people I've come to know over the course of my time on the G+!

Thank you all for being so nice :-)
