You know, I’m used to the redness of my face now. I still don’t like it—but at least I’ve accepted it. It’s not hurting as much anymore and my skin is somewhat under control. I’m excited to finally go to the dermatologist today and see what she says though. I hope she can take the redness away.

Ok so this is my favourite thing ever, although I can’t take much credit for originality.A leaving present for my friends Kyshia and Rachel who are tragically no longer a 15 minute bus ride away, but are welcome on my couch whenever they want.

Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular.

I have a nice camera and the willingness to go out and take pictures. I don’t really remember how to be spontaneous anymore though. Hopefully I can get some nice shots soon. Maybe go on a hike or something.

Today I did laughing yoga and this girl I’m mad-girl-crushing on in my art class actually talked to me and told me I should never doubt that I’m beautiful which made me so happy. Her art project involved the class talking about what she thinks each of us value, and she said she thought I valued “self”. It made me happy how she thought that (because of my video project). The sun shined today which made me happy. I was able to get stuff done, like buy a trojan helmet from a costume store for my orientation training even when the store was already technically closed. That made me happy. Today I laughed genuinely, and a lot. I feel like I’m part of something greater and that makes me happy to feel confident. I think great things are in store and I just have to let it happen and not look over the simple, happy moments.

I experienced happiness today—I can’t forget that it’s still possible to feel positive.

I think I’m greedy, but I’m not greedy for money - I think that can be a burden - I’m greedy for an exciting life.

My blog is a conglomeration of: artsy photographs, light pastel colored things, gifs of me, random emotional vents, female empowerment, flowers, space, and occasional original artwork, songs, and videos.

Followers, I’m glad you made it this far.
