oh i made a hat last night with the yarn that i received for my birthday...back in September! I would link to the pattern but it is from ravelry which requires a password to view any patterns.
Also check out the scarf that I made for my roomie for christmas. I didn't follow a pattern I just winged it. Glad it turned out! and also glad that she likes it!
this picture is quite hilarious because as she points to her charm ( as read from above) she is holding a cup of coffee. lol.
I started on a hat today which is draining the life from me! KNIT WITH SIZE 1 AND 2 NEEDLES!! YIKES!!
It's gonna be pretty sweet when/if i get finished. ugh my hands hurt though (that's what she said) haha

ALSO!! my roomie and I switched christmas gifts and I received some AMAZING gifts!! I will post a link to her page as soon as she posts it!!
oh and check out my second attempt at photoshop. Well it was mainly me asking my roommate tons of the same questions since she's a pro at photoshop. I need to focus! focus! lol
I may have an unhealthy obsession with Roger from American Dad.
I also made this with Paintbrush on the mac. nothing spectacular but i do like the colors i used.

I am going to fill up my flickr account before I go pro because I'm cheap and I can't believe that I've talked myself into paying $24 to post more fucking pictures lol. any hoo, I'll be offline until mondayish so enjoy all 4 posts that I made today. I'm sure you feel enlightened and somewhat motivated because I am not so...
also I was browsing through my friend's pictures and I found this photo of when I used to be skinny. I actually had to cut out my ex since he's the shoulder on the left. Do i look happy? i think i do. stupid. so stupid.
I have gone years and years escaping that movie and this year will be
no different. So I wrote a poem in the other room with my earphones
on. I feel that it poem is very forced so forgive me. I need a muse.
Some inspiration that tears at my heart. Something or someone. That is
what this poem is lacking. Honesty. Hmm I may end up erasing it if I
still don't like it tomorrow.
Quitely thinking with a numbing tone
Among all this panic that I unfortunately own
A resolution? A solution to all this clutter?
But how do I begin it? What words do I mutter?
So in my head I turn it and flip it
Reversing the order so I can better read it
But seeing the answer was not properly planned
As I choke back the realization of this destructive end

that is designed for the couch? How about waking up every hour with a
freaky nightmare? Eh I don't really mind though. It's good to be near
the family. Ha I kicked my brother this morning and asked " how's it
feel to wake up on the floor and NOT be hung over. Hahaha. Yeah. Take
that. Hopefully I can voyage home today. I want to knit a hat. A
super cool hat. But first I need my supplies. Also I am dying to see
Sherlock holmes. Maybe today I can make that happen?? Anyone wanna
pick me up??

Today was the indie deluxe craft bazaar. my friends Bill and Barb and I all had a fun time. I did not sell as much as the last craft fair but this was also a lot shorter than the last one. no complaints there!!
Anyway I bought few neat things, I'll post pics tomorrow on flickr. I only have time to include one pic right now, so enjoy.
Me and moms. I was pretty excited that it's cold enough for me to wear my "marty mcfly" vest haha. that movie is awesome! but not as awesome as teen wolf. I can quote that movie forever. Really, if you ever get bored, talk to me about it. I can go on and on about how fabulous that movie is lol.
after next week I plan on dressing this site up. it's plain and I'm not thrilled about that. it needs to be obnoxious to represent me properly.
Coach Finstock: Look Scotty, I know what you're going through. Couple years back, a kid came to me much the same way you're coming to me now, saying the same thing that you're saying. He wanted to drop off the team. His mother was a widow, all crippled up. She was scrubbing floors. She had this pin in her hip. So he wanted to drop basketball and get a job. Now these were poor people, these were hungry people with real problems. Understand what I'm saying?
Scott Howard: What happened to the kid?
Coach Finstock: I don't know. He quit. He was a third stringer, I didn't need him.
Stiles: Never say die.
Scott Howard: Give me a keg of beer... and these.

I was browsing through flickr and I found the wonderful art of laserbread Check it out!! seriously! This guy is so so so AMAZING!!! Please look through all of his work because they are all so different yet completely amazing!! If ANYTHING click on my favorite photo of his!! You'll freak out in complete awe!
okay okay, think I'll sleep now. Haircut tomorrow! pretty excited! good bye long hair =(
I was a little resentful that I couldn't sit in the meeting so these poems are a little....angry? haha. No joke, if I could sit in a meeting ALL day then I would have found the perfect job!
SHOULD HAVE...COULD HAVE...IT'S OVER AND DONE WITH NOW
should have stayed quiet
kept my mouth shut and remained silent
should have turned away
and never said hello, and kept it that way
should have forgot your name
erased you sooner without any pain
should have kept it brief
to stop my thoughts from twisiting into grief
should have read the sign
it said "dead end" yet I passed on by
should have made a choice
that was truly mine and not from another's voice
should have know from all my ignorant bliss
that this would all end exactly like this
I PAINTED A PICTURE FOR YOU
in the stillness I'm tied up tight
my feet wrapped and my arms at my side
I've tried to scream or even utter a word
but the sound is blocked and only by my ears heard
I have trapped myself into a frame
and painted a picture so you won't run away
So in this picture you see my smile
a perfect example of a happy child
but behind the picture the colors run
and pour into my veins a self fed poison
but you'll never see the truth i hide
because I've fought to keep you out of my life
IT CONTINUES UPWARD ALWAYS
it grows intense
my mind's a mess
it stops on repeat
I am unable to speak
from you and from this
because it's you I still miss
