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...

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....

On art shows, doodles, and how to make a fortune

Yesterday I got to attend Outsider Art Fair, and it was great. Today is the last day, so maybe like bookmark it for the next year or something. I found out about it through the Facebook events feature, which I like immensely. It gives you suggestions based on your interests and about 90% of the time they’re spot on. Which is also really disturbing, but mostly very convenient. It was located in the Lower West side of Manhattan, but I’m not sure if they keep the same location every year. What I am sure about is we were too damn...

Whatever you do, do not fan approach me

Ok so before I finish up my Hong Kong story, I would like to do a post on the current state of events. Because there has been a lot going on, and I now realized I mostly keep this blog as an events tracker for myself. And the rest of the world to read. It’s like a really fucked up secret journal. A really close friend of mine is moving to Oregon today. And that’s such a hipster thing to do, I’m not sure whether to feel sad or jealous. I’m happy for her because I’m sure whatever her plans,...

I might need to restock on my holy water

I’ve been very philosophical lately in my posts, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Let’s get back to reality. It’s getting cold people, and that means sweater weather. It also means staying inside more, and no more pressure for the outside activities. I thank God and Netflix for changing seasons, and quality entertainment. Speaking of this last one, I highly recommend you watch Mindhunter. It’s about FBI agents interviewing serial killers in order to understand, and classify behavioral psychology behind their actions. And did you know that most of your problems, and insecurities stem from childhood? I KNOW. Anyway,...
