oh, tonight. What a night. I really, really wanted to drink, drink away all of the world. In a good, fun way! Hung out with Gumby and things were just really great. I think Im goin to Sioux Falls, SD this weekend so if you happen to be there, there is a huge metal show goin on and I should be on the way shortly. Gotta work tomorrow morning and Saturday morning and then Im off to the races! Trips with friends are always a good time and if you have a chance to get away, GO! just do something man, you’re gonna love it, I promise.
cant really sleep just sitting here thinking about things and feeling the way i feel. Its weird, I get these butterfly feelings all over my chest but its not good butterflies its like “fuck what the fuck is goin on??”-butterflies. and then I cant sleep and I start thinking about my day, about tomorrow, about my life, about my friends and family and how to become a ‘personality’ online. haha thats a funny thought to me.
Its so hard for me to come through these keys cause I swear to god if u met me you prolly wouldnt know. Its not that Im shy or quiet, well, sure, I can be. But Im not the loudest, drunkest, fist-punching-est bitch in the room. Or maybe I am..? See its just so hard to be myself when I dont even know which way Im gonna go. So I feel like if You are following my “ramblings and posts and whatnot” (what ill call them) then you just wont ever get it! and Im sorry! you just. wont. and maybe I dont want you to haha mayyybe I just save a little of myself for the real…face to face living color boy meets girl, or boy or whatever and its on baby world. think about that. and hit me back. seriously. I love to know what people are thinking. I want to know your “online personality” and guess what? you can be Whatever you Fancy. You can Be anyThing. in this life, in digital, and in the Next. thats right. -a
.. new inspiration and light to shed onto the somewhat tenuous rebirth of the art of domesticity… a whirl of feng shui ideas that I have applied over time.
WOOD IS GOOD: If you have a kitchen full of water elements (lots of blues, glass, black & white), positioning art in wood tones (greens) over the sink in wood frames on its functions similarly to the way green functions here to “dull-out” if you will the more poignant colors and tone down the water’s draining impulse.
THE CHI OF CRYSTAL: Any kitchen or bathroom benefits from earth, and crystals most especially add the element of earth and re-focus attention away from the drain. I keep an even number of amazing opalescent crystals beside my sink and just being able to glimpse at them makes doing dishes a bit less arduous while also strengthening the nourishing earth element of the kitchen.
PRODUCTS THAT GLEAM: A beautiful bottle that you use to hand mix an organic cleaning spray can add tremendous aesthetic power to the act of actually cleaning up. Kitchens are the hub of prosperity in any home according to many schools of feng shui philosophy, and the meticulous keeping of a kitchen is an bountiful art form.
“Starting is hard, finishing is even harder. I often think about marathon runners. There is a pacing to work on things that take a very long time, and you know it gives very little back because you are working with tiny tiny digits. So you know a painter can get a lot of joy after a short period of working by simply stepping back and seeing what they’ve done. For me I don’t get that sense for a long time, sometimes it takes a year. So to prepare you have to have some kind of faith, a lot of faith.”
~ Liza Lou talks about her life-sized hand-beaded “Kitchen” & the belief it takes on a daily basis to commit to work on huge creative projects.
This is EXACTLY what I’ve been dealing with… and I usually end up cutting my 5ft by 5ft paintings up into 7 pieces so they are easier to deal with. Sometimes its so hard to keep chugging along when all the scenery looks the same fore the entire ride. No more giving up, though. More positive thoughts, and ideas. More of these inspiring articles to help me along! And maybe less of a day job…?
Keep checking back. I just stick to the first two pages of options or so.. Tumblr users keep designing new themes so I’m hoping for one I like too! Yeah, I have had a heck of a time trying to find one that looks how I want it to. The customizing they have on here isnt really very intuitive… or I’m not very intuitive.. whatever.
i like your theme because it doesnt take over your content, and it kinda matches the vintage-y feel of your photos. I just wish we could enter a picture in some of these different layouts.. If you want, you can check out my unofficial basement band’s tumblr @ www.redroomrecords.tumblr.com I used the default tumblr theme, and was able to upload my own background and made the title on photoshop and uploaded that. hopefully this helps!! thanks for stopping by come back now ya hear ;)
Q: What is the best feng shui book about home decorating?
A: I love this book, “Feng Shui With What You Have.” The feng shui basics are clear and accurate. Its no-nonsense. its a great starting point.
I have just the WORST layout… HELP computer geek awesomes. HELP
“Don’t agonize. Organize.”
Oh, If only it were so simple! I find myself agonizing over my cluttered house at almost every moment!! Maybe its just that I am not meant to be here, I should have got out of Sioux City, IA about a million years ago, and yet, 8 years later I am still here. Ugh, Its about the money, its about the companionship, what else is it? I need to get my head straight; organized. Maybe if I just throw everything I own into a big black box and close the lid and start over, and then come back to what I really miss, what really matters, maybe that would help. I don’t know what to do really. Little by little I need to do something. I just feel so alone sometimes and out of my own head. It helps to have someone nudging me, telling me my next move, encouragement. If you have any good storage or organization tips, Please!! Share :)
