Limitations.

This post is inspired by one of the ten greatest physicists of all time, Richard Feynman. If he was my math teacher, I’m sure I would feel a whole lot different about numbers and sums. As it is, I still get nightmares about my matric exam and it’s almost been a decade! I met his character in the film, The Challenger Disaster, an inspiring look at the investigation that followed the tragedy. I would recommend it to geniuses as well as mathematical idiots alike. Very entertaining!

 

 

Twenty fourteen.

my2014 sml

 

This year’s been the toughest yet. But I started thinking that maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be if you want to level up in life. For me, 2014 was a year marked by loss. But because I lost things I get to get new things! The year ahead promises new opportunities and an entirely different lifestyle. I’m starting a new job, a new cat moved in, and I’ve even made a few new friends. I feel truly optimistic about the future for the first time in a very long time. And I am leaving everything that hurt or hindered me right here in 2014.

2015 Manifesto:

  1. Be really brave.
  2. Cultivate creative habits. Draw everyday.
  3. Rather count on a small amount of good people than a good amount of small people.
  4. Move more, moan less.
  5. Grow lots of plants.
  6. Listen more than you speak.
  7. Recycle and read everything you can.
  8. Grow up not old.
  9. Go back to school.
  10. Make the life you want! Fuck office hours!

When you are insane… Christmas may seem CRAZY

insane

And the holidays seem to amplify any insanity. Many people struggle with depression over the holidays, but if you’ve been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness things can get very dark very quickly. And all the jingles and the family movies and the faerie lights of Christmas gets to be too much, even so that spending time with family feels like a punishment. BUT it’s all in your head. Whether I believe it or not, my family loves me and spending time with them is healing, And if I’m not well, my family would WANT to help, it’s easy to feel like a burden or a Grinch. But just remember the happiness you felt Christmas morning when you were little, deep down Christmas makes humans feel good, you gotta let it to it’s magic though!  If you’re feeling a bit down before the big festivities here’s some helpful information to keep you chipper. If you don’t have anyone to open gifts with this year, don’t freak out either, I’ll be blogging throughout the holidays, tell ME all about it!

Truly insane.

Stewie Griffin is to blame for today’s doodle. The quote is from The Simpsons – Family Guy mash up episode, which I really enjoyed. I relate a lot to Stewie in this episode; people are often freaked out by the ways I show love. But don’t worry Stewie, someone will recognize and appreciate the crazy cool that is you. Fuck Bart.
