I had a pretty bad night yesterday. It was supposed to be great, cause I watched Guardians of the Galaxy a second time… but, yeah… -__- 

Anyway, I was able to talk to some friends last night, so I calmed down a bit; but earlier this morning, I was still more or less shaken because of what happened. I decided to do the one thing that calms me down the most… Painting. 

I’ve had this mint container for a long time now and I’ve used it to store some of my meds. At one point, I covered the top with washi tapes. Sadly, they looked icky after the first month. -__-

I’ve sketched a couple of ideas on my planner a few days ago, but I ended up doing my own thing in the end. I like how it turned out, actually. It’s been a really long time since I’ve painted w/ acrylic, so yeah! wiii! Calmed down quite a lot, but the problem is still there. Hopefully, everything falls into place soon. I don’t want to drown in anger and sadness anymore. -__-

Sketches earlier at work! :3


I’m assuming most of you don’t know that I’m a big fan of the Percy Jackson series! I’m reading the Mark of Athena right now and I am loving it! I feel kinda sorry for Reyna after what happened to Jason. .___. So cruel. :(

10 Notes | Posted on August 13, 2014

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

— John Keating, Dead Poets Society

Hey, guys! Sorry for the no post for a week or so. Was pretty darn busy at work with a project, but now I am done… Kinda.

Anyway, I started using Pottermore again! Guess what house? Well, I wanted to be in Slytherin, but the sorting hat had other ideas and placed me in Gryffindor. :P 

Might paint this this weekend hopefully or next, since I’m going to watch Guardian of the Galaxy this Saturday!

Have you guys seen it? Is it good? :D

Phew! This took me hours! 
Anyway, I was just practicing after I downloaded Kyle’s minipack brushes - I just had to try them! I guess I got a bit too carried away and ended up finishing Arya. :)) Wee! 
Arya’s one of my most favorite characters in GoT, so yeah! XD 
Process: 
Adobe Photoshop CS6. Estimated time about 4 hours+.

Thank you, thoughtfulwonderings! It means a lot! :D
