No amount of coffee No amount of crying No amount of whiskey No amount of...– The Weepies
Why haven’t they let me know yet? Why can’t I just have the new job already? Why can’t my carear be artist?
Books glorious books!
My stack of To-Read books is at least half my height & I’m reading a book I bought a few days ago & have a library book to do next… *sigh* The life of a bibliophile….
Happy Birthday Yumi today!! Happy Birthday Tom tomorrow!! Happy Birthday Christopher Tuesday! Happy Birthday Chan next Monday! Happy Birthday Criagory next Tuesday!! Happy Birthay Kayla on 29th! Happy Birthday Jack on 30th!
This is the stage I hate. The waiting for something so awesome that I feel trapped in stasis. I can’t move forward til I know for sure what direction I’m going. My knitting has been left aside, my painting sits, half finished, my thoughts get held up on the same thought, my feet stumble in daily routine. I just would like to know, til I do I am stuck, still, trapped
So, I’ve been asked to do a themed mural at one of the sites I work at. If the person who asked me to do it gets full permission, I’ll be covering a Kindergarten cloakroom with princess-y castle & a boy’s fortress :p Painting feels wonderful! I am actually liking acrylic now I think. Working on my second painting in this medium right niw :)
This weekend I finally packed art supplies in my backpack for at my boyfriend’s house!! I packed all my acrylics, a canvas, paintbrushes, & the rough sketch I want to paint :) I’m excited, but wholey unmotivated to do it quite yet. Was going to spend the day at my place instead of here, but my crazy mother ruined that…
Happy 1 year to Tom & I!! Love

In my sanctuary of printed words. Amongst the bound papers filled with ideas. At home in the quiet. I am here.
I like me
I like who I am. I have no regrets in life. I wish more people could say the same…

Though I have a stack of books to read that is far too high, I’ve decided that I’ll make a list of the books I want (as most are out of print), & will only order them when I feel the desperate need for books! This way I’ll save some money & can focus on reading my current pile :). List to come. The only deviation I will allow upon this list are graphic novels (that come...
