I had this really vivid image-driven dream last night that presented a few great ideas and interesting concepts. One half of it had to do with zombies for whatever reason, but the interesting thing about it was that there was a “cure,” and the cure was to force the undead to absorb (look at/hear, etc) real beauty, like from the natural earth. (Weird I know.)
Well I had this image that really struck me. REALLY. It was so clear. It was of a little girl with cloudy eyes, presumed to be a zombie, sitting underwater with ball and chain, watching the clouds froth overhead in fast forward through the water’s surface.
My alarm smacked me in the face just as I saw that, but it’s had me thinking all day. Would the little girl change back and then drown? Was she watching the clouds? What did it mean?
I don’t know, but it was a damn cool image. I wish I had the skills to paint it.
Idk if these’ll work but some songs that make me super emotional are: Say Something by A Great Big World, I Miss You by Blink-182, Daughter by Medicine, Your Hand in Mine by Explosion in the Sky, and Stay With Me by Sam Smith. Hope these help!
Oh oh oh, thanks a bunch for the suggestions hun! They do help very much! (Also I love getting to learn other peoples’ music styles and interests <3) You da best ; U ; !
Mocha’s going in to get her tumors removed next week at the earliest…
Being a pet parent, I know that this is what I want for her because she’s my baby, and I can’t stand to see her drag those things around. At the same time I’m worried out of my mind because this time it’s not one (like LouLou had) but TWO, so there’ll be two incisions, one of which he said might not be easy because it’s irregular and seems to be multiple masses within a capsule, some of which may be hard/impossible to remove, meaning that they could potentially grow back.
In addition she’s 2 years old in September, which to doctors is considered ‘their life span’ even though they can potentially live to be 3-3 1/2. I mean she’s fit as a fiddle and healthy, and just in overall great shape, not feeling her age at all! But I’m still freaking out because it’s two of them being removed at once, and I don’t know how much stress that will cause her as opposed to one easy removal.
Ugh. Sobbing about it never helps but I kind of feel like having a big old fashioned cry about it not because it’s a huge dent in my pocketbook (even though I’m working) but because I love her a TON, and I want her to be rid of those things, but again the risk involved is higher now…
Wish her luck, everyone. Next week is going to be very stressful for both of us.
If you need some practice with anatomy and foreshortening
Which I do, and I got sick of myself avoiding full bodies and doing the same fricken poses all the time, BUY FIGURE DRAWING, FOR ALL IT’S WORTH,by Andrew Loomis.
I went in so pessimistically and was like I just can’t DO it, but I’m only like, 1/4 of the way into the book and I can see my strokes and form becoming smoother, and I can SEE from practicing with his tips and references the understanding FINALLY coming through my hand, good God. This man is amazing.
FFFFFFFFFFF today was one of those days at work where my brain was just being a total durhurrduuuurrr. Literally we had JUST gone over remembering all the pet parents’ brought items and the dog’s collar in a huddle and what do I do? I go to get a dog and bring him out in a slip lead like I’m in play time mode and the owner goes, “Oh, he has a collar” and I just about died and was like, “I’m sosososososo sorry, I’ll go get that for you right away! Oh my gosh.”
She was really cool about it, but my manager and coworkers were right there and glanced over and I just PBBBBTTTTT for real? We just huddled about this why am I such an idiot? Can I do nothing right? //dying
I love my job but I’m such a doof sometimes! ; n ; I hope my manager can forgive me. Ugh.
