Aquarian sun, moon in Virgo, Pisces rising.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a life update on here.
Things have been crazy.
I started doing art again, and then stopped. Then started a little again, and am now doing commissions. Depression, anxiety, life, a whole bunch of things got in the way, and I didn’t deal well. But I’m learning each time to cope better, and I think the experience is doing me good in the long run.
My writing is going, but slowly. My old school is paying me to mentor writing students in an online forum, so that’s been exciting. I’m finding that I enjoy teaching much more than I ever though I would.
I remember being thirteen or so and adamantly telling my family that there was no way in hell I would ever want to teach highschool children anything. Look at me now, a semi-regular writing teacher at a highschool who also mentors online in her spare time. Man, things change.
My band has been playing a lot of shows in Vancouver. The Roxy, The Rickshaw, Joe’s Apartment on Granville, The Cellar. It’s been a busy few months, musically-speaking. But we may have just lost our drummer/one of the founding members of the band. Tensions are running high with our frontman who had a mental breakdown before the last show. But, such is the way when dealing with artists. The band goes on.
My partner is moving to Vancouver to be closer to his band and work, which is going to be a huge adjustment, seeing as we’ve never lived more than twenty minutes apart. But it will be fun for him, and I’ll get to spend some weekends in the city, which will be a lot of fun.
Life is busy, things are crazy. Nothing ever slows down and I have no idea where I will be in six months. I’m terrified and excited to find out.
she-hulk-smash asked: I'm getting it colored! I want like a golden brown ombré :3 how do you like your extensions?
That’s going to look so awesome on you:) I’m loving them so much! Mine are black and dark purple ombré. They’re huge and fabulous.
kyhuk asked: My gf loves your blog! lol
Ha! That’s awesome to hear :)I love getting messages like these, you totally made my day. Does she have a tumblr too? I’ll add her!
I couldn’t tell whether it was eight in the evening or 10 am; everything was bright and misty and my eyes hadn’t adjusted to the light.
I forgot spring could be like this: the wind dropping off so suddenly, the heat breaking over my shoulders in waves. T.S. Eliot said April is the cruelest month, but I must make a case for May.
