Day 3: Art Supplies Doodle
I've just made a quick doodle here. My creative juices still aren't really flowing yet. So I doodled a brain, though bubble, pencil, hand, and a notebook.
I feel it's important for me to do this. I'm trying to ignore how bad I am at it and just try to have a good time, and take this 30 days one day at a time. :)
Day 2: You Got This (lettering)
Day 2 is a lettering challenge and the phrase is "You Got This". So, please bear with me. I must have written this a thousand times and I'm still not in love with it.

30 New Days - Sept. Day 1: Teacups
Yay! It's September and that means that (even though some posts were late) I made it through 30 days! So we're shooting for another 30. This particular one comes from Dawn Nicole and is a 30 day lettering and doodle challenge. I lay no claim to being an artist of any sort, but I have always enjoyed playing around with letters and I'm always doodling, though they are no where near even ok in my book.
It seems like a fun challenge, so why not? Please please bear with me. As I say, I'm NO artist and I'm sure some of these will look like they were done by a 3rd grader (and that's probably an insult to the 3rd grader). In 30 days though, it will be over, and we can act like it never happened. :)
The rules for this challenge are that you doodle on the odd days, and letter on the even. Since this is day one, it's gonna be a doodle.
Day 1: Teacups
So, there are my teacups. Show me your doodles!
Day 31: Whatever you like
I just want to post about body confidence today. I do not understand people who have a certain body type that want to promote it into acceptance by putting others down. I try my best to make sure I never shame someone about their body type. They don't seem to return the courtesy. Every day, I see posts on facebook putting my particular body type down by people I consider my friends. This makes me look at them different and hurts my feelings.
Now, allow me to inform you as to my body type. I am about 5'5" and I weigh less than 100 lbs. There is nothing medically wrong with me, I do not have an eating disorder, and yes I eat. Yes I have a thigh gap. Yes, you can see my ribs and my collar bones. But there is still a difference in the look of someone who is naturally skinny and someone who has an eating disorder or a medical condition.
I do not understand how people expect me to not be offended when you grab my wrist and remark on how I need a cheeseburger simply because you can fit your hand around my wrist. I don't appreciate you poking and prodding me to see if you can feel my bones. I'm not allowed to try and fit my hand around your wrist or poke and prod you and tell you that you need to lose weight and lay off the cheeseburgers.
Someone please enlighten me as to why people think that this is an ok way to act? Shouldn't you think that as long as someone is healthy that that is all that matters?

Day 24: 7 Things That Cross Your Mind A Lot
- getting my house ready to move into.
- My parent's health
- my boyfriend
- getting a better job
- random quotes and song lyrics
- wishing I had time to do more of the things I love
- all my uncompleted projects
Day 29: A picture of yourself.
For a while, I wasn't sure how personal I wanted to make this blog, and I would have avoided posting things like pictures of me, my name, and other personal details like that. Then, I decided, people aren't going to follow a blog if they don't connect with the person writing it. So here it is, a picture of me. I started to post one of me and my boyfriend but I haven't asked him how he'd feel about that, so this one is just me.
This is me from about this time last year. The boyfriend and I were scouring costume shops for items for his Rorschach cosplay and my female cosplay of the Comedian.
Day 28: Do You Wish For Anything At 11:11? If so, what?
I can't say that I specifically wait around watching a clock for 11:11, but if I happen to pass by one and notice that's the time, I might wish for something.
Sometimes I wish for a long and happy life with my boyfriend, sometimes I wish for a better job. Sometimes I wish for better health and less stress for my parents. For my dad to get a new kidney, or a new pancreas, or just for his eyes to get better and not get any worse.
What do you wish for at 11:11?
