How to play your bipolar cards right

I hate to be playing this bipolar card now, but it’s kind of just about the only thing that brings me joy in life. So you know what’s good about it? Every time my significant other tries to argue with me I yell out ‘I’m a sick person, you cannot do that to a sick person!’ The best part is you can apply this to just about anything. -Did you pick up that thing I asked you to? -I’m a sick person… -Did you seriously eat that last piece of [insert food name]? -I’m a sick person… -Did you go...

Art is weird and it’s a good thing. Or is it.

I don’t know about you but I like art in all it’s shapes and sizes. Even the art I don’t like, I still like. Meaning I appreciate the fact for its existence because that just means there’s somebody out there who needs it. And if there’s demand, there should be supply. I learned this in my economics class. Education is important. That also means there’s somebody out there stranger than me, and that’s reassuring. There’s at least two people who went ‘listen, I’ll put this into a pile right here, and give it a vaguely sexist name for no reason’...

Living forever 

So I was talking to my friend the other day, and her birthday is coming up, and like a normal person I asked what she would like for her birthday. To which she said she already has everything she needs (aw), and only wants to be forever young (wait, what). And that kind of explains why she’s my friend. But it got me thinking: being forever young, would mean being forever alive, which in return suggests eternal life. A very ambitious wish, but is it really a good one? I think it’s shit and here’s why: Endless mortgages. I mean...

Surprise, I’m Bipolar

I’ve been away. For a long time. And for a good reason. You see, I’ve been diagnosed with a Bipolar disorder. And not in a pretty way. And I’ve been trying to understand how it effects my life now. And If it effects my life now. Do I even have my life now. And whether I’m ready to share it here. I guess I am, so here we go. Let’s be honest, I always knew something wasn’t completely right with me with both positive and negative implications. Because nobody in their right mind starts writing a blog. And yes, I’m...

On going to Barcelona, creepy antique photos, and some good rap

OK, so a lot has been going on and most of it was actually positive. I KNOW. When does that ever happen. So that’s my excuse for not being here because I was literally pulled out of my head, where I like to spend most of my time, and into real life. And it’s nice, I’ve been busy with work stuffs, meeting other people stuffs, doing fun things stuffs, doing not so much fun things stuffs, you get the idea. But tomorrow I’m flying to Barcelona. And we had another ‘massive winter storm’ hit New York today, so instead of...

New York – it’s a state of mind

So we had ourselves a three-day weekend, and it was nice. And you just have to appreciate your day job, what else would fulfill that satisfaction of getting away from it. Lots of free time, kittens, and fatty food that doesn’t make you fat – that would probably do the job, but hey. Saturday was somewhat of a cold day, so I got to stay home, sleep in late, and just kind of be lazy. See winter is tricky like that, you hate it with a vengeance, but it’s a super convenient excuse to just chill out for a sec....

My first, and last Burlesque show

You guys, this Wednesday was Valentines day, and it’s probably the most bipolar holiday ever. Depending on whether you’re single, or in-relationship status, you were either super bitter, or horribly ecstatic. I was neither because I had to work on a fairly complex excel spreadsheet that literally took me all day. Granted I do like working on those, so I guess that would lean me into a relationship-ecstatic status. My fingers gently typed away those weekly summary numbers, while excel took them in and grew larger and larger, until we both lost track of time, and span off into an...

On Broadway, Booze, and T-shirts that talk, kind of

A bunch of exciting things have been happening lately, regardless of this shitty weather. I hate February with a vengeance. And supposedly this winter weather is sticking around for another 5 weeks because  Groundhog saw his shadow. And nobody can argue against that logic. In fact, I think I might get a hamster and let it’s shadow make decisions for me. You’ve got nothing on me, IRS. I made another drawing. And it came out pretty bad ass. It took me a good 6 to 7 hours, but I’m a proud mama. It’s based on a photo taken by @twisted_mind...

I paints again, and mom approves

I did it. I actually followed through with my plans, and finished my ink drawing. And this NEVER happens. OK fine, it happens, but I’m usually not the one known to follow rules. Even the ones I make for myself. The art challenge that I made for myself is finished. And it took me one whole evening, and some of the beauty sleep time, since I couldn’t go to sleep until it was done. And my beauty probably took a hit, but hey. I’m fairly proud of the end result, even though it turned out to be nothing like planned....

I’m inspired, and ready to stab someone in the eye

It’s been a super bi-polar week. Do you ever have one of those? One minute you’re so excited, and inspired, and full of life. Another, just about ready to stab someone in the eye with, a fork. Just me then? First of all, let me finally tell you about the Christmas gift I got for myself. Because this year I decided against gifts for everyone else, but myself. If you ever get the chance definitely go for it. Just apologize in advance to your friends, and loved ones. After all, they’re supposed to accept, and support you no matter what....
