Can I say ‘like’ anymore times in this video? Jesus. This was towards the end of the night and I may or may not have been inebriated at this point. But despite my terrible speech in sounding like a Canadian valley girl, you can see (sort of) what was around my art show.
Pssst! Guys! Would you all be lovely fiends and give me a simple ‘Like’ in this thing? I’d really like to plaster my face all over other peoples pages. Because of reasons. And uh…I’ll bribe you with hugs and INTERNET LOVE.
Make with the clicky. And such. *nods*
What a clever title. I’m so witty.
Moving on from that vague atrocity, onward to some photos I snapped, unfortunately didn’t have the actual DSLR on hand with us because the cable for the battery charger has been swallowed up by this house. (It has now been recovered from the jaws of this wooden castle) So, I got a few with my phone when I had the time. It was a great night, very chill, wonderful musicians (One of them did a Bowie cover! Eee!) and it ended up drunkenly, abruptly, which was unintentional but a neat way to top off the evening. Hahaha. We stumbled up, outside and to a magical cab that drove us home. Wonderful evening.
My art is on display there all month, so that’s nifty. I need to go back and put little sticky notes under them for prices and such still, because I didn’t do that on the opening night. I realize now that I did have time, but I was tired of rushing to put it all up. Anyways, have some photos. It occurs to me that for some reason, I’m missing photos of the entire other wall. Um. Yeah.
I figured I would hop on the blog bandwagon of making one last post for 2012, especially since I haven’t been blogging much on here at all. This year has been pretty hectic, some ups, a lot of downs. As goes every year and every single last post of the year.
I’m always grateful and appreciate the friends I still have in my life even if they’re distant now, figuratively speaking. And the ones that are literally distant, that strangely have been better friends to me online than my real friends in person. Go figure, eh? Not to sound incredibly rude and like a major bitch that doesn’t appreciate anyone after I just said that, but it’s been pretty true, this last year especially.
2012 has been a pretty nifty adventure in learning a lot about myself that I didn’t realize before, at least not completely. I know a few more likes and dislikes regarding myself, in a lot of aspects which is neat and all progress is at least little steps forward, even if you feel like you’re heading backwards.
Now the obligatory spam of photos that may or may not destroy your computers!
This isn’t even nearly everything but my brain can’t exactly comprehend the entirety of what’s happened this year. So instead I’m going to focus on what’s ahead and try my damnedest to legitimately do it. Even though I’ve said that every year pretty well since I was 18.
So the probability is pretty low. There’s still hope. I just need to level up and stop being so damn sickly all the time. Puts quite the damper on this life thing.
What are YOUR resolutions this year, if you have any? I think I’m going to continue what I’ve been doing, which is slowly evolving, growing and trying to make myself into the person I want myself to be. Which is me, but leveled up.
Maybe a cool digivolve.
Nikki digivolve to—WERE-NIKKIUMON! Badass right? …You’re right. Not very.
When I grow up, I just want to be Marceline.
I thought I could quit you. Get you out of my system, purge and be done with you. But you always leave that sinking feeling in my stomach that I can’t quell when I see something you’ve posted that isn’t for me.
…Come back online, Tumblr. ♥
Also, if you aren’t following me on Tumblr and want to (Why wouldn’t you?) My blog is right here! –> http://www.tumblr.com/blog/necrok1tt3n
Today I managed to scrub the bathroom, clean this room, make progress on a Franz Kafka commission I got, painted and finished my parental unit MOM’s Christmas present since I’m going up this weekend there for an early holiday thing, since everyone is away and busy on actual Christmas. I hope she likes it. I’m really happy with how it turned out, but damn I’m rusty at painting. And I managed after that to draw a pretty lady creature for a few hours.
Feels really good to get into it again, my back and hands both agree and disagree though. Sweet, sweet art pains.
Went to the doctor earlier this week, got blood taken, had another ECG done to check this ticking machine of mine out again since I’ve been having harsh heart pains and palpitations a lot and such again, very not fun. She thinks it might be a blood clot or a pulmonary embolism or something, ugh.
Hopefully it isn’t anything bad and I’ll feel better sooner than later! I have optimism! Onward to better and awesome things!
I have no idea what I was thinking with that title there, but I am far too lazy and uncaring to change it now. Got my bank account set back up online after not using it for quite a few years, checked my balance and was pleasantly surprised with what was there, which brought a sense of calm and balance for the now.
Which in turn cemented into my head even more on what I plan on doing in the next few months, year, couple years? Who knows a time line, all I know is that these things are what I want to be doing and what I want to do, and regardless of my apprehension, timidness and overall anxiety riddled fear of life, I’m dead set on getting what I want and actually setting forth the motions to finally get my life on track for myself completely and only myself. With obvious companions to accompany my tribulations through time and space.
1. Get my finances more in order and budgeted properly so that I don’t spend $400 on a TARDIS or something. Although that would be well worth the purchase, if it was, in fact, a real TARDIS.
2. Kick my own ass to work on more art work, every day with no exceptions. I need to work on selling more, getting better and getting my portfolio for art school all together by March or May. I’ve been neglecting this far more than I would like, and there really isn’t any excuses other than I’m exhausted all the time and I have been saving Hyrule.
3. Most excited for this one! Taking an aerial hooping/lyra and aerial arts class when I catch them and stop missing the deadlines by a week. Level myself up in my hooping, learn and play hard then finally progress myself up to fire hooping. If I sum up everything in this category that I honestly want to do and learn so hard I feel it in my gut, it’s fire hooping, fire fans, aerial hoop, static trapeze, get the hang of juggling again, doing the usual side showy things like walking on glass, laying on a bed of nails, etc. Performance arts in a circus/Emilie Autumn vibe to sum that all up. Ugh, I could go on forever here and make it even more uncomfortable for your eyeballs.
Basically, CIRCUS STUFF.
4. Get my musical self together in-between this all, get a new/used bass for myself and keep on with learning le piano. Make an all female band that’s like a mix between Emilie Autumn/Dresden Dolls and Stolen Babies.
