Well, I created some art, (that's a gift so I'm not posting it here). I read most of the third in a series of books that seems to drag on forever. It's a YA romantic fiction type deal and it's getting boring. It was available online at the library. What can I say? I did … Continue reading Sigh.
It's kind of my thing to run when I'm scared. I do the "flee" part of fight, flee or freeze pretty well. I mean, I can also freeze, don't get me wrong, but I'm really talented at running. I want to go up north before classes start so I'm not freaking out more, but I … Continue reading RUN!
I am extraordinarily adverse to things that are uncomfortable. Right now, school is very uncomfortable. I am petrified. As in, I don't know if I can do it, and I don't know if I want to do it now, and I don't know if I can make myself do it. I kind of have to. … Continue reading Adverse.
I went to the craft store today for inspiration and I still don't know what I want to create. I have artist's block. It's so frustrating. I bought some watercolor pencils because they intrigue me and I think they might be fun to play with. I'll admit to having no idea what I'm doing with … Continue reading Block.
There are times when I just have to make lemonade. It seems like there are a lot of lemons being tossed around lately, but I have some sugar in my life too. Time to mix it up. I can't control everything, but I can control my response. Or at least, most of my response. I … Continue reading Reclamation.
Shame is a crappy feeling. I don't know how to hide in a deep enough hole to get away from it. I am ashamed of so many things. I don't really want to list them all here. I just am. I hate it. Sometimes, I hate me. Image from Pexels.
I am weeping for Louisiana and Texas tonight. I don't think people who stayed behind are going to make it. The blessing, if there is one, is that it's not going through a huge metropolis like New Orleans or Houston, (it's supposed to be a near miss for the Houston area as of now). It's … Continue reading Louisiana.
I can't help it. It's like watching a train disaster unfold live on television. The Weather Channel does a great job of sensationalizing the terror of extreme weather events. Meanwhile, it's a real life horror for the people living through it. I can't even imagine what it must be like for people who need to … Continue reading Glued.
I haven't had that creative "spark" in a while. Just that image in my head of something I could create or do. I don't know why. I love creating art. I'm not the best at it. I'm not even marginal. I do love it though. I just love the whole process of making things and … Continue reading Spark.
I think I messed up. I mean, I screw up on the regular, so I'm not even sure which time I'm talking about. I just think I did. I should have known better. I should have tried harder. I shouldn't have been so weak. I should have been smarter. I should have... But I didn't. … Continue reading Mistake.
