Drawing on Repeat

Yesterday’s post was written frantically. I did it as I do most things, by the seat of my pants, just pulling from the deepest recesses of my insane mind. I did some writing in the past for my LARP (live action roleplaying). Most notably, I wrote the background for the Great Library setting. It’s myContinue reading “Drawing on Repeat”

Crying Over Spilt Milk?

In the past I used to think that phrase was silly. Who would cry over something as small as spilt milk? But as I got older and my mental health deteriorated, it honestly makes much more sense. There’s that one small thing that causes the breaking point when you have no more patience. I startedContinue reading “Crying Over Spilt Milk?”

Opposite Action in Action

Saturday’s are busy days for my family. My SO, Bonus Daughter, and myself go to karate. Our dojo is about an hour away, depending on traffic. We travel the furthest of any of the other students, I think. It’s good for us. I love the martial art. It’s not just exercise. There’s history, tradition, andContinue reading “Opposite Action in Action”

Willingness versus Willfulness

In case you missed the Podcast yesterday, here’s the video! Willingness is an important part of your mental health journey. If you aren’t willing to put the effort in to try for yourself then no one is going to be able to help you to do so. It’s a sad fact that loved ones needContinue reading “Willingness versus Willfulness”

The Best Laid Plans

Last night and this morning, I put some good attempts into working on the logo. I don’t have the original line art from my tattoo, but I do have some good photographs. I just can’t seem to get anything accomplished though. Every time I’d draw a line, it just didn’t seem right. I’d start, hateContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans”

Brainstorming, the Owl Rain

June 2013 was my last hospitalized suicide attempt. I’m having a hard time writing about this subject. I’ve openly talked about my mental health issues for years now, but sometimes, returning to the past can be difficult for my mental health. Not everyone is always understanding of mental health issues. Even those who love you.Continue reading “Brainstorming, the Owl Rain”

Tiny World, Big Feelings

I’m still feeling really raw after loosing Mango yesterday. Since my plans for today fell through (my local vet changed a bit and no longer will see rabbits, so I need to find a different one), I decided to take a personal day and work through my feelings. I watched some sad anime. These areContinue reading “Tiny World, Big Feelings”

Happy Independence Day

To everyone in the United States of America, Happy 4th of July! Hope you are all celebrating in a safe way. Enjoy that food and don’t blow yourself up with fireworks. I spent the first part of the day uploading some photos of paintings. These paintings were done quite a long time ago, but IContinue reading “Happy Independence Day”
