Waddup with the chick flicks making men out to be worse than women for all time?! Why do we always have to be the villain?! And the savior after we run back? Why do we always fall on either end of the love spectrum extremities?!

I think a new genre of movies need to be made...lets call them "dick flicks." Where the woman realizes she's being a total jerk, and she drops everything to be with the man she wronged...and then...he doesn't take her back. He drinks lots of whiskey cause it hurts but he's smart enough to know she'll just do it again, so he's gotta kill the pain for the moment. And then he ends up discovering he's worth more than he was ever valued for in this time of self reflection.

Next thing ya know, he takes up hobbies such as woodworking, welding, and hiking to pass the time. And then the movie just ends there.

Happy National Poetry Day! Make sure to read a few poems to your kids, and some for yourself. Dr. Seuss inspired me as a child. Inspire them to express themselves by using vocab games and developing new tunnels of critical thinking. Poetry is a great way to do that.

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..

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.

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.
