I had extremely high expectations going into the theatre for The Great Gatsby - and every single one was either met or surpassed. This is the first film I’ve watched in a long time where the performances were so compelling that I saw the CHARACTER before I saw the actor and his or her ROLE. I am an enormous DiCaprio fan, and for almost the entire film, I forgot it was him I was watching -...
Leonardo Dicaprio played such a great Gatsby.... I...
This accurately conveys my feelings.
All any of Jared Leto's music videos say to me is:
“I am a film maker with resources. Look at my resources.” Congratulations, Jared Leto. I still like his music, though. And his face.
Me: this girl has NO HAND SOAP in her bathroom
Why do I keep getting invited to fucking weird parties
BFF: Get to that beer asap
We like to swear.
Me: When navigating a mall corridor is the equivalent of an obstacle course
Me: Not even because it's busy
People just zig-zagging across the world
BFF: Best word
Me: I love fuck as a noun
BFF: I hate ppl who are like
Fuck fuck fuck fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
Fuck fuckity fuckette
Let it be known that I have modeled.
Yes, strangers in malls… strangers on the street… my customers at my retail job… my relatives… the annoying cleaning lady at my other job…EVERYONE, YOU CAN ALL EXHALE NOW. The tall, thin person with bone structure has finally pursued her alleged calling. /sonotmycalling One thing: if I ever model again, I need to bring a book and some music with me. People are NOT...
My hair is fuchsia.
Like… Ramona Flowers fuchsia. I love it and never thought such a thing would occur. 90s grunge-inspired PHOTO SHOOT TOMORROW WHOOOOOO
OH MY FICTIONAL BLOODTHIRSTY CANINE DEITY, DRAFT ONE OF PART ONE IS DONE. 113 BEAUTIFUL PAGES. ….now onto the next 200+ pages that I need to finish this damn manuscript.
BFF: (complaining about a classmate) Not funny at all
Haha now he's like "so what ya doing"
Me: "Writing a better paper than you."
I love us
We're so mean
But entitled to it
Just finished the entire Animorphs series twelve...
Good thing I didn’t actually read that last book when I was eleven or twelve. Biggest complaint: not the roller coaster of a plot… not the character deaths… THE PROSE ITSELF. Way to lose distinct narrative voices and any sense of tension in the last 20 books, K.A. and ghostwriters. I’m sorry, but the final arc was a chore to read. Nowhere near the down-to-the-wire momentum...
Text exchange with my sister, and translation.
Me: When are you coming home to discover Rita dead in the bathtub
(When are you coming home so we can watch Dexter?)
My sister: Right after I bludgeon trinity to death
(In an hour after I finish printing my design homework/bludgeoning the printer to death)
Autobiography of Red has a sequel as of last...

Drafted and ready for contest submission within the course of a week? THIS IS NEW.
Why did I not read The Perks of Being a Wallflower ten years ago?
Well that last week of my life involved more shopping, more margaritas, and fewer designated drivers than I’ve ever dealt with before. “Do I have to wait for the light to turn green before I make a U-turn? Should I just drive over the curb?” “NO! THE LIGHTS ARE JUST UP AHEAD. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU” My aunts are crazy.

Because all I do in this sterile office environment is scam the system and show up in offensive t-shirts while doing jack shit while somehow getting away with all of it. Luckily I don’t have to lay eyes on the place for a week and a half :Db

I watch the video for 30 Seconds to Mars’s “Hurricane” for the first time in a while, and my sole reaction is still a chuckle, followed by, “Oh, Jared. Don’t worry, we get it. You’re still a film maker.”
An elderly librarian asked me today what my...
Answer: “Young Urban Psychopath.” I’m proud of my nerdy musical garb, but I still felt the need to explain myself. Explanation included the words/phrases “favourite band”, “piano ballad”, “a critique of the glamorization of violence by the media”, “Stephan Jenkins”, and “genius”. She more or less responded with...
WOW I DREW SOMETHING. Just a doodle of Seg’vora. Pseudo-antagonist of my in-progress novel. Decided on the name from the Italian segugio (hound) and vorace (voracious/ravenous) ♥
is my new favourite word.
Lovely, inexpensive sketches! :D
Look at this awesome sketch that shadow-of-nights did for me! She’s taking commissions OVER YONDER at the moment and charging only $1-$5 per sketch if anyone is craving a handcrafted doodle. :D Go! Run!
Fun fact: I have no damn clue how to respond to comments attached to reblogs. Boom.
Resolution to NOT EVER deprioritize my art? So far, successful. Picking up acrylics for the first time in eons is super fun… especially when it’s to slap down some Animorphs fanart and make a million mistakes :P
Number 46 finally arrived in the mail. #50 and #51 are in near-perfect condition despite the seller describing them as “acceptable” and making me nervous. The hideous condensed UK edition of #47 + #48 was cheaper than the shiny US ones, so I dealt with it. I can now begin and careen headlong to the conclusion… something I should not have interrupted sixteen years ago. TIME...
Today was the third time I’ve been told to work SLOWER at my second job by a coworker or supervisor. I have nicknamed this place The Den of Catatonia.

There is literally nothing left for me to do other than FINISH WRITING THE BOOK.
