where is my mind


I've been bumping into my friends all this week, some of whom I rarely see, so it's been interesting to say the least. Considering it is the end of the year, I've been doing a lot of things differently that I could benefit from the new year. Such as, I cleaned my apartment today and got rid of things I no longer needed. I am making the effort to shape myself into a better artist. I've been drawing recently and painting more often. I am researching new places to live and jobs to apply to.

I don't know. It's time for a change. I have work early tomorrow, so I'm limiting myself from fun until tomorrow night's festivities. My last day will actually be on Monday since I started 4 days after the 1st. How exciting. :)

5 more?! Eeeee. What a year it has been. This is when I start to contemplate, right at the end of the year. Gives me something to look forward to. The end of the year, the end of this project...it's kind of surreal to say the least. Waiting for the new, and I'm ready to embrace it.

Also, new hair for the new year. I think it's fitting. I'm going to create a fun outfit to wear for NYE. Brimming with excitement.

I went to the south side today to pick up things. I think the first thing I do when I go back to my parent's house is immediately reach for the food. So much good stuff. All the time.

There's always candy sitting out in bowls, which is just as tempting as well. John's mother was very kind and made us this awesome meatloaf, which we cooked when we got home. And she gave us potatoes and all this other awesome stuff. It's so wonderful and I'm so grateful.

Then I began baking cookies and have been doing so since about 5pm. It's so hot in here, and I'm still going...

So far I've made: pecan crescent cookies, chocolate chip walnut cookies, and sugar cookies that I decorated with sprinkles. I'm thinking my last batch could be ginger cookies or perhaps something else...any ideas?

It's weird not having food to eat. I'll be spending my next paycheck on Christmas gifts instead of feeding myself. This is probably why I hate the holiday season more than anything. It certainly isn't what it used to be.

I miss being a child and being completely oblivious to the stressfulness of it all. Now that I am older, I realized all the stupid crap my parents had to go through.

Don't you wish Santa was real? Therefore we wouldn't have to spend all our hard earned money on silly gifts. Since when did Christmas become all about presents than coming together as a family? I guess there is never really a way of knowing that.

Stupid holidays.

It started snowing on our way home from Kinetic early in the morning. It looked so beautiful, now it looks all mushy and dirty. So many funny things happen at Kinetic. So much so that I should probably write a book about all the craziness I experience and the kind strangers I meet.

We went grocery shopping, which filled up our fridge just a little bit. It's nice to see some actual food in there.

P.S. Just one more month. :)

I started an Etsy business. Well, I will start one. I make a lot of hemp necklaces and bracelets and anklets, so I figured I might as well make some money off of it. I was also thinking I could buy mini canvases and paint different designs ,and sell them for a small amount of money. Would anyone perhaps be interested in buying those art pieces?

I've been painting a lot more and I'm running out of room on the walls to display them. Perhaps you can hang them on your walls. Wouldn't that be cool?

I spent a good while trying to edit the colors in the photo, then I got fed up and made it black and white. I think I like it this way a lot more anyway.

So, this is my new bass. It's a pretty purple color, unfortunately you can't see it in this photo. Another time though.

Today is day 311, which is quite fitting since I took my photo with my bass and all. :P

So, I got a guitar, a bass, and John has a drum kit. I got my harmonica amongst other things, so...let's start a band!

Primus has changed my life. I want to be the next Les Claypool, but I will be called Lis Playcool. I've always figured that the bass was my instrument. I've grown quite tired of playing guitar, I don't think it was meant for me. I thought it was funny that John and I dyed our hair red and black for Primus and Les Claypool was wearing red and black. We ran into quite a lot of people. Was everyone at Primus?! I think so. I think my favorite song of that night was when they preformed "Sgt. Baker."

Part three to the black and white series.

I've been trying to come up with ideas for my gallery, but nothing is striking me at the moment. I figured that I want to be creative with it since I never got to have my own exhibition before. But perhaps I shouldn't go all crazy and stick to the one thing I know I do well. I have more weeks to come up with an idea, but I'm still getting worried.

The kitchen counter needs a good cleaning. I've been cooking so much this week. I've been holding off on the cooking for so long because John and I practically work every single day and never have the time to enjoy a meal together. I started eating ramen instead of eating vegetables and fruits. We finally put our foot down, went shopping for actual food, and I've been cooking it all. And it tastes wonderful. What the hell have I been doing?!
