I’ve had a big project sitting on the table for a while and I’ve found some new inspirations for it. Hoping to open my 1KDreams project to the public once I have just a few more logistics worked out!
We all have dreams and aspirations, even small ones, that bring happiness into our lives. Some of us need a little help from friends and even strangers to make it happen. I want to show through a bit of public art that we are not alone in our struggles to climb, and that sometimes “teamwork makes the dream work”. I’ll need 1000 people to help me with this goal by (anonymously) sharing with me some of their own and allowing me to release them together in my project
There will be more information to come, so stay tuned friends!!
Well, I’ve been all set up at scarby for a week, but things have just now begun to feel settled. I have a wonderful spot above the creek, and a juggling booth full of friends to play at all day (when I’m not working, anyway). This weekend was particularly dreary and wet, and unfortunately the weather correlates with how much money I make. But here’s to better weather from here on out, eh? We have a great crew in my restaurant this year;plenty of good vibes. I’m currently recovering from a day’s worth of juggling bruises by laying in a hammock under a blanket, enjoying some blues being played from a distance. I live a good life, under all the stress.
flarong asked: Tumblr is where I get all my interesting info about you..
Yeah, well, it’s where I post it all so…
Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

I’ve had a very eventful week. Monday was spent nerding out at comic & game stores, raiding toy shops, and enjoying indian food. Spent a little time with my brother, whom I hadn’t seen in a year. I played games all day Tuesday, and Wednesday I ditched Funky Formal to party all night with my friends; rachel came out, and we rolled until midday Thursday. The night was full of 2 hour rub-downs, lotion candles, and cartoons. I learned (unfortunately firsthand) that MDMA can inhibit erections for a full day and cause early periods, so it’s not all peachy. But overall I feel refreshed and ready for the weekend.
Scarby is coming up in a couple of weeks!
Today I smoked my last cigarette. It’s time to let go of a bad habit before I get too far down this road. I’ve had a respiratory infection for over a month, and in the past 6 months I have been sick 85% of the time. Cigarettes weaken my already-lacking immune system, and my lungs can’t heal if I continue to poison them. At the beginning of this year I set some goals for myself, and I need to follow through. Step one to being healthier is ridding myself of the garbage in my life, and cigarettes are a big stinky smear on my life. Here’s to keeping myself clean of them!
Thanks to everyone still keeping up with me!
My life’s smoothing itself out once again; stress doesn’t stick around much anymore. We’re nearly halfway through Sherwood already, and thus far it’s been a decent run. I’m managing my booth on the weekends and I get about 25-30 hours in during the week coordinating fundraising for my boss’s franchise and popping kettle corn for events. I’ve got my affairs for Scarby in order, and should expect a good amount of work there. That gives me time to arrange my Colorado situation and determine where I’d like to go before TRF.
I’ve spent my spare time with my family out here, nurturing friendships and raising shenanigans in the warm weather. I haven’t spent much time on crafts, but I may take up dream catchers again. I’d like to find a cheaper, faster method to produce them so I can get some out on consignment or at Bazaar. I’m working on improving my health and fitness (albeit slowly), and brushing up on some juggling skills.
Life is good to me, folks. Spreading love to all of you in return! <3
Bloody mary and chile rellenos with my friends. Oops, I accidentally had a good valentine’s day.
I’m thankful for the small things in life.
Today I got to get out of the horrible cold and spend time indoors. I got to get some work done, take a hot shower, eat some cooked food. I got to love on some cats and dogs, condition my hair with olive oil and honey, play MTG with a deck of my very own. I got to do laundry without quarters.
Tomorrow I wake up bright and early to return home, and it’s still cold, but I’ll be working the rest of the week with friends and looking forward to a warmer weekend.
Sometimes it’s good to have a physical reminder of the good things in my day, no matter how insignificant. These moments add up, like pennies. And I’m turning all my pennies face-up from now on.
