Reaction and Response

A thought from last night: Art is proof that negative things can turn into greater, positive things with the right mindset and action. As a believer of balance, interconnection and the bigger picture, I think that certain things, including those we’d rather not experience, are necessary for learning. As an avoider of tough times (perhaps […]

Daily Prompt: Back to School

Daily Prompt: Back to School. I can give you a list with twenty different fields of study (sociology, literature, graphic design, list goes on..) but if I had to choose one, music would be the obvious choice. Production, composition, scoring, performance – I’d love to learn them all. Or media. Not film or journalism, but […]

Daily Prompt: Party Animals (?)

Daily Prompt: Party Animals (?). Sustaining the energy when it comes to social interaction isn’t exactly my best feat. I’d say I’m more likely to want to hide in a corner with a good book (or journal). However, I tend to go the other way whenever I find the situation surprisingly good. It’s a bit […]

LiveJournal and Teenage Angst

2006: “I don’t want to go to school tomorrow, but I think I’ll end up going anyway. I thought everything was okay, but SHIT.” “Last Saturday, I had to endure another day of boredom. It wasn’t so boring, but I would’ve had more fun if I just stayed at home.” “I don’t want to go […]

Daily Prompt: There’s No Place Like Home

Daily Prompt: There’s No Place Like Home. Hmm. I’ve been through a relatively nomadic phase before and I didn’t like it. Maybe if I’d be traveling to places that I truly like, then I’d take it. Though I still think that it’s nice to have a place to call “home” – a comfort zone. An […]

Fear and Regret

“What is your biggest fear?” Rejection, failure, being alone, death? I’m sure you’ve heard one of these answers. My biggest fears are largely connected to my greatest dreams. I don’t fear rejection – I fear not being able to try at all. Failure is a part of the process. What I am afraid of is never […]

Another Job Well Done

I’ve been freelancing since last month mainly because my monthly income just isn’t enough for all the household expenses. I thought that I do have the skills to pay the bills so why don’t I work more? Well I’m not going to lie here – I wish I could get paid for creative activities but […]

We Don’t Live Here Anymore

Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts.

Dust and an unheard song. […]
