I still can't draw...

but that's not gonna stop me. I know I'm getting worse with time, but who cares! I don't draw because I can (obv. I can't) I draw because I like to. 
The pen is mightier than the sword

A stitch in time saves nine

Yeah is an inspiration

Just so you know, I support the LGBT community...

Was supposed to be a Snowman dressed as a Salesman on a hot Summer's day. Didn't turn out as hoped...

obv. Andre Jordan is an  inspiration

I may smile back but secretly I'm planning your murder

Reincarnation is a bitch

Still haven't been able to phrase this one properly, but you get the point

Yeah, I don't get simple concepts like circular motion. Based on Amy MacDonald's Mr Rock and Roll

Based on Regina Spektor's Us (one of my favourite songs)

Based on Regina Spektor's The Man of a Thousand Faces

Stuck in the mud

I'm in a very weird mood right now. Its like I can feel my life slowly slipping out of my hands and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I'm feeling equal parts of despair, loneliness, sorrow, confusion and boredom for no reason whatsoever. Maybe is just PMS, maybe everything that's happening around me has somehow managed to drill a hole through my once-impenetrable wall of obliviousness.

I used to think that living in hostel far away from home would give me a taste of the freedom and independence I was yearning for (while growing up). I thought I would finally be able to make my own decisions, see the world from my own eyes, feel things in person and not through a colourful story that belonged to someone else.

College life isn't what I was hoping for. If anything, I feel trapped and burdened all the time. I'm like a Man On A Mission - even when I'm enjoying myself, I'm doing it because its a part of The Plan. I don't even know what The Plan is, and yet I spend every waking hour following it. Everything I do, I do for someone else- my parents, my teachers, my family in general, my friends who are proud of me, people who are jealous of me, my future boss etc.etc. My actions are just reactions! When on earth am I gonna learn to do things for myself? Every time I get close to making a decision, someone makes it for me. Am I a participant or just an audience in the failed-gameshow pilot I call life?  Right now I'm stuck facing the consequences of two decisions taken by others on my behalf. Extra courses, summer programs - no one gives a damn about whether I want to actually do it or no. They just assume I'm gonna do it.

I am tired of all these assumptions. I'm sick of living my life like a lamb. You follow the thousands before you, you stick to the rules they force upon you, and in the end you turn into an old man's half-cooked dinner - I don't wanna be one of those! I want to be the pig that became a sheep dog or the the rabbit with a pocket watch....

Ah screw it - its not like anyone gives a damn. I'll just end up doing what people expect me to do, being the perfect Possibility Girl, feeling like a complete failure for the rest of my life and die an unknown woman.

I LOVE this song!

First heard it about a year ago in an episode of Dorm Life (do you watch DL? You don't? You Suck. BIG TIME) Been in love w/ Lady Danville ever since. :)

Become a facebook fan of the boys. They are super sweethearts

Also, do yourself a favour and start watching Dorm Life.

Interesting tidbit about Dorm Life: Remember All That on Nickelodeon? Well, the dark haired goofy/adorable kid from All That, Jack DeSena, plays Shane Reily on DL.

You just got UrbanDictionary'd

I love that site! New favourie words/phrases:

n. Doing stuff to keep busy while avoiding what really needs doing. When all is said and done, your room is clean, your laundry is folded -- but you haven't started your English paper.
I should really do my program. But instead, I think it's time for some productive procrastination... Where's the mop??

The use of prior evidence of one event to predict the outcome of another unrelated event - from the words superstitious and statistics.
1. Toss a coin and get heads 100 times in a row and use superstistics to conclude that the next toss is more likely to be tails than heads.

2. A well known superstistics conclusion: "The outcome of Washington Redskins home football games has correctly predicted the winner of every U.S. presidential election since 1936." (snopes)

Having the attitude that if something can't be done in 5 minutes or less, it's not worth doing.

When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both.

An amalgum of hungry and angry invented to describe that feeling when you get when you are out at a restaurant and have been waiting over an hour to get the meal that you have ordered.
"Damn! Where is that steak I ordered? We've been waiting for an hour and a half here. The service here is terrible! I'm starving! I don't know about you, but I'm starting to feel really hangry!"

1. An phrase overused by those trying to sound sophisticated and/or intelligent.

2. A phrase used frequently by Tobias Bluth from Arrested Development.
Tobias: You could say I'm, if you will, 'buy curious'

Man: I can "sprinkle the pudding" if you will.

I'm enjoying season three of 'Lost'." "Season three came out four or five years ago." "I know, I suffer from hype aversion."

Because I hate fruit salads.

What's with the fruit = relationship status on FB? Its been more than a week and women are still forcing their private lives on others. Its lame, idiotic and no, it does not show support for Breast Cancer Awareness (You know what shows support for BC Awareness? Spreading the word about BC). And ladies, must I add, it does not show men how powerful women are. It shows how desperate and silly we are. I swear. Ask Gloria Steinem, I'm pretty sure she'll agree with me.

I got this message on FB:
"We are playing a game. Someone proposed that we GIRLS do something special on Facebook to help with Breast Cancer Awareness. Its easy, and Id like you to join us to help it spread. Last year it was about writing the color of the bra that your were wearing in your Fb status and it left men wondering for days why the girls had random colors as their status. This year it has to do with your relationship status. You will state where you are, by posting one of the codes below. Remember - don't reply to this message just type your 1 word response in your status box on your profile. Then cut and paste this whole message into a new message and send it along to your female friends....
Blueberry: Im single
Pineapple: its complicated
Pear: Separated
Raspberry: Im a touch and go woman
Apple: Engaged
Cherry: In a relationship
Banana: Im married
Avocado: Im the "other one"
Strawberry: Cant find the right one
Lemon: Wish i was single
Grape: wants to get married.
The bra game reached TV, lets get this one to do the same, and show everyone how powerful women are."

Forget interested, I'm offended. Sometimes I feel ashamed of being a woman! Why do girls obsess over dumb things like this? I seriously don't get the point! Who cares if you're an Avocado or a lemon flavored banana?  I'm not interested in knowing about your private live. I don't care how many boyfriends/girlfriends you have. Please. Spare me the details.

I admit, I'm not a romantic little fool, I don't get why people make such a huge deal about relationships, marriage etc. I see girls around me, mature, independent girls sticking to their men like Velcro. And no, its not love (I'm not naive). Its possessiveness. The ratio number of people who actually seem to be in love and the number of people in relationships (that I know of) will yield a value less than 0.5. 

Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, maybe I don't really know the truth since I don't know "what love is". But if I really am wrong, tell me one thing: why do women just keep looking for opportunities to post about their relationship status?
