This has been a post.

*computer crashed, but I'm still posting this, for reasons. If it's working in the next few days I'll try and upload more images...yah.

Sly & The Family Stone - If It Were Left Up To Me

"Be, Productive! Be! BE! PRODUCTIVE!"

I chant some variation of this to my sleep addled face in the mirror each morning, if 12:00 is still considered morning...

Believe it or not I have started and abandoned almost as many posts as I have published on this blog. I hate that this has become another "I should post more" post. I do those alot. This month though, I have pulled myself up by the bootstraps. For the first time, I have a month to do whatever I feel like. Which actually freaks me out, alot. I'm so used to constantly working and having a rigid schedule and rituals that even figuring out what to eat for breakfast is distressing.

Nia, get a grip you are 19. Live.

And live I shall dear reader. Slowly dipping my toes back into what it means to be young and carefree. Here's some life outtakes :3

In other news I'm seriously considering purchasing Photoshop I think I've reached my limit with what I can do on MS Paint and frankly it's too laborious a process for something that should be fairly simple. In my head, Photoshop is like this magical microwave where you pop in ordinary images and they come out amazing and perfect! I'm a very visual person, and I spend alot of time on these posts/drawing/editing/painting so it sux when things don't look exactly how you thought they would even after all that effort. I'm probably the only one who cares remotely about this crap. I think doing this would be an investment especially if I end up working in a creative field (with loads of student loan debt).

So yeah, if my new shoestring budget permits I'd like a new printer/scanner, new camera, some kind of editing system blah blah blah. I need a new JOB.
