Lifestyle Change: Day Thirty.

11:13 a.m. Yesterday, my day was mainly spent finishing the book, "Mommie Dearest" which at one point almost made me cry. I also helped April re-arrange her room and we watched a few episodes of 'How it's Made' before going to bed. I dreamt Jackie, though in the dream and real life, being passed away, that she was here somehow in 'body.' She wore a striped thermal jacket outfit similar to this one photo her Mom has (not mine, so I will not show it here) where she visited the mountains with her siblings.

 Other than that, nothing out of the unusual .:) I woke at 5 a.m. this morning and went back to sleep for a little over five hours more, had breakfast, and here I am.

I'm in an artistic mood today, especially now that I finished off my book. My next reading goal is to finish the ends of several books I haven't completed yet before starting a new one. I also need to make an updated self portrait either today or at some point. Need exercise as I've been skipping it this week....quite a lot. Despite healthy eating, it kinda shows. lol. But I'm me nonetheless.

11:37 a.m. I've been looking at other self portraits to get inspired to do my own. I think I'm gonna make it really interesting this time. :D I might do a photo reference so I can 'pose' (with a photo taken today, of course) and work off of it but I'm excited!

My sister commented on a photo edit I made two years ago. I loved what she had to say. It will be easier to show than explain but here it is:


What I was referring to in the description back then was that, while I went through a very gothic phase as a teenager and early twenties, it led some people in my family to think I worshipped the devil. Kinda broke my heart to find that out but the past was the past. I think it was also the fact that my Dad was never very fond of any photos which were 'out of the ordinary' and would comment as such (love you, Dad, you still make me laugh and you're just trying to be funny) and I was, back then, trying to spare myself any comments about not being normal.

Then someone liked my photo, this old photo from two years ago, then my sister made the comment you see above, which as I told her, is still relevent and something I needed to hear. I love my family, and she's right, we don't judge.

4:36 p.m. It took over three hours to do my self portrait the way I wanted. I am hanging out with April and Rob now..

6:10 p.m. Played Flight Rising lol.

8:02 p.m. Hung out in my room. Nothing special going on...except April is making pasta, meatballs, and broccolli tonight. Cheat meal!

9:49 p.m. Played mostly on Flight Rising, then Stumbleupon and got referred by family to more Christina Crawford  (Mommie Dearest) books. lol. Still hoping to improve my art skills. April decided not to make pasta tonight which is fine. I shall find something else to eat, hmm?
