Short post from the iPod.


2:49 a.m. First few hours of 2016. 

I couldn't sleep so I got up and ate popcorn and Jalepeno Cheetos (Rob surprised be earlier today) he got paid early. I also did it while watching Lost. I'm still watching Lost...

....then getting frustrated at characters I don't trust as I usually do. 

I wonder if this post means I'm back to blogging. 

I made easy access by putting the app on my iPod. April saw and checked on me, then admired the art I made on my wall. 



Eep. Lost just had a scary moment. 


By the way, it wasn't on Instagram so I didn't know how to post it but here's my niece at only a few days old. :D

4:32 a.m. This show is gonna make me cry. Don't die, Charlie!!! P.S. Season three finale.

1:57p.m. I went to bed around 5. Since its the weekend and April and Rob tend to be on their computers, I am mostly on a break from creating on SL. :) Fair enough.

Just woke up and listening to music on my iPod. The day...has begun. Thank God for another day of life and a new year. God bless. Jesus lives. Loves. Saves. Toodles!

P.S. I don't think April has slept since yesterday. When she finally does..I imagine she'll be out for a while.

2:01 p.m. Feels strangely good to be writing a blog post again after a month on hiatus.

2:16 p.m. Looking back on the past couple months' entries, I realize I left out a few things.

Earlier in December I bought a new Barbie and the girlie at pink sequin fabric for it! I made a beautiful dress.

April and Rob got me Disney princess things like a Candle and body wash because I am a secret fan on Disney princesses...and pink. I love pink. It's a happy and relaxing color.

I dreamt of Aunt Steff this morning...something about a phone number and I turned down spending time with her to organize my stuff.

Some other dream about Queen Elizabeth and another about a Metallica concert. All this music and reading clicked something in my brain which reminded me of that.

Anyway, if they are grocery shopping today, I want to stay home and handle SL stuff I need to get done.

It's slow going but it's on it's way to being a real business and real income. God willing in Jesus name, amen!

3:41 p.m. I enjoy that I'm blogging again. I hung out with April and Rob and now continuing Lost...which is ending its third season. I've been watching a month now so I must be finishing this series shortly by normal standards, lol.

4:09 p.m. Charlie died!! NOOOOOOO!!!! I wanna cry. Lost. OMG. 

4:14 p.m. Randomly found myself clutching a roll of paper towels in anticipation. Oi.

4:36 p.m. I just remembered I dreamt of having a bunch of tiny canvases, lol. Feel like sitting outside at some point..or painting. Jen wants me to make a Hello Kitty thing for the girls but as an artist, I'm hesitant.

I'm not fond of drawing copyrighted works...for that matter. Another is I don't want to directly copy someone else's art...however famous it is.

The other is she wants it on canvas..the ones I got for Christmas. I only have three left and don't know when I'll ever have canvas again. If you're poor you see where I'm coming from here. 

So yeah....

6:30 p.m. Caved and drew Hello Kitty, watched Goldbergs, now playing Remember me.

6:38 p.m. ...or not. Couldn't even accomplish the first level. The bollocks with it. I'm gonna play something else.

7:46 p.m. Playing something else. I miss Secondlife.

9:27 p.m. I quit the game and played Secondlife...I should have let Rob be. As he is depressed, and refrains from complaining....still the air of wanting to be alone was there yet I was determined. 

New Year. New things. I think it may be time start the Oi Bae! blog and see where it goes....


 






My Year in Review...According to Instagram

Here's a brief review of my year based on what I see in my Instagram feed, from the beginning to end of the year. P.S. It's the new year!!! It's 12:07 a.m. So 'last' year in review.

Bonfire on new years. Have a slimmer figure than usual and still drawing in my big sketchbook. I took my bike to places such as the park and dollar store. I was also editing the Dream Doctor.

Some days I would go sit with the neighbors (who have long since moved by now) and just chat, being internet free and watching crime shows. But yeah, I loved taking the trip to Patterson Park.

Then there was the time we went to MOSI for Malania's birthday and I hung out with Aaliyah and Harmony. I also got that Cross off the ground Mom told me to grab..I have it somewhere...

More drawing. Then there was that time Rob and I tried to make a batch of brownies in a muffin pan and they came out like deflated lifeless cupcakes.

I drew Cara Delevinge making a weird face. 

I still excercised, it even led me to visit the Fort Meade museum, which I went to see again on several other occassions afterward.

I tried hair chalk.

I visited with my nieces and enjoyed my natural hair for the last time. Because right after that I began dying it blonde.

Hissy had five kittens on April's birthday, March 25.

I drew some more and got blonder over the next month.

Another bonfire, then a Marilyn Monroe 'FBI files released' tabloid magazine later...

Jackie passed away at 19. I made a coaster in her honor with my long-desired Mod Podge I finally bought at Wal-Mart. I've dreamed of her quite a few times since.

I drew some more and we watched the kittens as they learned to walk. 

I made a trip to Mema's house and took photos of the pretty yard. :) Drew some more and caught Gentlemen Prefer Blondes on television..then The Mummy. I walked to Wal Mart a few times while I was there, too. lol.

I ate less than usual, a bit healthier. I then spent the night at Dad's where I had a big meal lol.

From there I visited Mom's house and my nieces, essentially successfully making my rounds of visiting my family who I had gone without seeing for a long while.

I used a piece from a lazer to make a close-up camera on a phone. It was fun.

I got watercolor paper finally and experimented with that.

I started dieting and exercising regularly. 32 weeks ago. I made a lot of visits to the park in that time and saw a change in my body. Again, I visited Mema's, this time after her health scare to help out, and I kept up my healthy kick.

I rescued a weak kitten from beneath the house. Mucus has glued its eyes shut and I lovingly clean it off, before eventually having to set it free.

The cats got bigger and cuddled on me more, especially Garbanzo. We still had five kittens at this time.

I practiced more watercolor painting. The kittens got more playful. I still dieted well and continued doing art stuffs, such as coloring with crayons after using a multi-planter thingy to hold my crayons.

I made another visit to Mom's house and played with the kids. Aaliyah invented a bubble dance and I photoshopped Zackary into a video game character. Lots of group selfies with the little ones. :)

I introduced them to 'Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows.'  26 weeks ago.

Aaliyah visited for a week and I made her a little purple princess dress. She enjoyed visiting our elderly neighbor, Myrtice and played with sparklers in the spirit of fourth of July. She also watched a ton of youtube unboxing and play doh shows.

I painted more watercolors after taking the leftover paper and forming it into a handmade book. Harmony made a visit with Aaliyah and they played with Lavidia our kid neighbor.

 We got down to three kittens and by now they were suckling Hissy for the last couple times, against her will.

Harmony and Aaliyah visited again for the day and they watched Youtube.

I SHAVED HALF MY HEAD AT 3 A.M. AND LOVED IT! I attempted a mohawk. By now I was also attempting to date and close as it got, we never got around to it and we went our seperate ways shortly after.

18 weeks ago.

I watched a lot of Scrubs.

Harmony made another visit and chased the poor cats. She had fun doing it though. 

I attempted to get a job with Velma and it went so horrible that it's hard to describe. On the plus side, I stayed for a week though not uncomplainingly and hung out with the kids. 

Then I got on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medication.

Halloween after that was great. April finally let me take a picture of her. We had no trick or treaters but we had candy and we had each other.

Not much went on with my Instagram afterwards besides some cat videos, not until Thanksgiving came around.

My brother gave me weird looks for taking pictures of Tampa buildings, as if its not something I rarely see (trust me, the glittering buildings are not seen enough by me even as a born Floridian)

Five weeks ago.

Drake turned on the living room light with his Mommy's help. 

I went to Aunt Steffs for thanksgiving. Good food, brief time at the park with the kids, Aaliyah on April's phone, and just all around family time. I was supposed to see Dad but it didn't pan out. 

I visited with Mom for a brief period afterwards. Went the same as it always did. Kids and my technology, lol.

I had an awesome birthday trip! We got this cup I loved which have fake ice inside the tumbler, socks, pastels, cork board, and I bought Christmas presents before Mom had to go to bingo.

Two weeks passed before I posted to Instagram again...just a picture of the three cats snuggled together. 

Then another week passed.

I went to a birthday party and saw Uncle Pat on his first days of freedom, played with Harmony and fed her pie, and watched her open Christmas gifts with other kids. Again there was good food.

I did a watercolor for the first time in 22 weeks, one week ago.

To celebrate Christmas, I also had a hot chocolate with cookie gelato, mini marshmallows, and caramel all in one. I was very sugar drunk afterwards.

Christmas happened and I got an iPod touch!! Among other things...took my first photo with it and posted it to Instagram.


I used my new art supplies to make new artworks...five days ago.

I posted my last selfie for 2015 and thats the last Instagram image. :)

New Years Post

Song lyrics in my head at the end of 2015:
"My name's blurryface and I care what you think."

It'll be 2016 in about a half hour.

For a brief period of time, I might still accidentally write dates as 2015 I think after this...just like I do every year. 

I haven't written in a month.

A lot has gone on in this month.

MY NIECE BROOKLYN CADENCE SMITH WAS BORN ON DECEMBER 22.

I'VE BEEN BUILDING UP MY SECONDLIFE BUSINESS DAILY AND MASSIVELY.

DAD GOT ME A TABLET FOR MY BIRTHDAY. IT BROKE IN ABOUT A WEEK AFTER I HIT IT WITH MY KNEE. 

I STILL PLAY FLIGHT RISING, THOUGH LIGHTLY.

ROB GOT ME AN iPOD TOUCH FOR CHRISTMAS. THE iPOD DAYS BEGIN AGAIN...THIS ALSO MEANS I USE iTUNES NOW and legally download awesome music.

I'M ADDICTED TO SHOWS LIKE 'LOST' AND 'THE GOLDBERGS' AND WATCH THEM CONSTANTLY.

WE GOT A NEW WASHER AND A NEW TELEVISION. APRIL GOT A NEW GRAPHICS CARD. LIFE IS GOOD.

APRIL'S MOM'S ANKLE IS HEALING, PRAISE THE LORD!

I SPENT CHRISTMAS WITH MY FRIENDS, AT APRIL'S MOM'S HOUSE AND WE HAD HOMEMADE PIZZA..WHICH WAS BURNT BUT THE REST OF IT WAS DELICIOUS!! THEN LATER MY FAMILY. I GOT PREZZIES (CANVASES, ACRYLICS, PENCIL ART SETS, AND A SLUSHIE MACHINE) AND WATCHED FLIPPER WITH HARMONY.

I HELD MY NIECE FOR THE FIRST TIME. SHE LOVED IT.

I STILL DREAM OF JACKIE SOMETIMES AT NIGHT, ALWAYS YOUNGER AND BEAUTIFUL THAN I KNEW HER IN LIFE. HAPPY.

I DID A MASSIVE CLEAN UP OF MY ROOM WHICH WAS LONG OVERDUE. LAST NIGHT CARLO, OUR BELOVED CAT, POOPED IN MY BED AS REVENGE FOR ACCIDENTALLY SHUTTING HIM IN MY ROOM. I WAS NOT HAPPY. ROB KINDLY WASHED MY BLANKET THOUGH. ^___^

DONNY STILL KNOCKS TOO MUCH. -_-

I GOT OFF MY ART HIATUS AFTER 22 WEEKS AND THE RESULTS WERE BEAUTIFUL:




 
I CAUGHT A STOMACH FLU A FEW DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS. IT WAS AWFUL.

I STILL DON'T WRITE IN MY BLURB BOOK THOUGH I INTEND TO UPDATE IT ONE OF THESE DAYS. I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN I'LL REGULARLY BLOG AGAIN. I'M CREATING ON SECONDLIFE FROM EARLY MORNING TO NIGHT.

I RENTED NEW STORES AND EVEN GOT A NEW BUILDING FOR MY STORE. CHANGED MY STORE NAME TO 'Oi Bae!' and currently trying to build my brand.

I just felt tonight, right now, was a good as time as any to go ahead and share all this news. Especially since I finished going through my Pinterest and Instagram feed...and both April and Rob are at computers capable of using Secondlife. I am not. lol. Jesus rejoices. Happy New Year. If I recall more big, preferably great news from the past month, I'll add it here. Mwuah! God bless, Jesus loves, lives, saves!~

P.S. Still thinking of beginning a Secondlife blog for products and whatnot. Wish me success!



The last selfie of 2015.
