It’s a brand new year! 2015 will be……..wait for it…..legendary! I am just quickly dropping a line to all my peeps about new, exciting projects that I am working on and how I can’t wait to share with them all with everyone. I have decided to focus and pursue my art career, which is complimentary to my already-existing professional writing and marketing business. In a couple weeks, be prepared to see all the art pieces I have finished and available for purchase. I am also proud to announce that my sister and I will be opening up a production studio and rolling out a couple of entertaining projects we are sure you will enjoy. One project has been a long awaited animated idea that has been in the works for my sister for years and I’m excited to help produce, and showcase her witty, edgy series that will surely leave you in tears of laughter.
Stay tuned and vigilant the following few weeks for our new, polished websites featuring our new projects and current ones that we are so diligently creating for your entertainment pleasure.
I’ve also taken on a challenge of a “a doodle a day” or a drawing a day to keep the creative and artistic juices flowing daily, which will all be in part of my magnus opus or at the very least inspire a few masterpieces. My daily doodles will be featured on my art blog and website that will be going live and I’ll be posing the link here in a couple of days. But here’s the first one, which spawned from a simple scribble from a red prismacolor marker on paper from my art journal. I just added a bit of shadowing, highlights and other subtle details. As always, I played around making it into a cautionary Valentine’s Day poster through PicsArt but I have misplaced the file to share :o(
Here’s the original doodle, Day #1.
No, this is not the weather forecast or the newest animated movie hitting theatres but it does seem to accurately describe Albuquerque’s social climate.
So what prompted this post? As always there’s something or someone that sets me off and inspiring me to vent to my peeps on my blog. Lately, I’ve been astounded, disappointed, confused just overall just emotionally mixed up from an influx of people’s horrendous behavior recently. I’m in awe and at the same time disgusted by how people treat one another here in Albuquerque. I wish I could say, well actually I’m happy to say that this is not an accurate portrayal of humanity as a whole but a small, insignificant sliver of man kind found in the middle of the desert in New Mexico.
I’m not sure what it is that makes the inhabitants of this small city so miserable, bitter and profoundly hateful toward anyone that is happy with life and themselves. Maybe its boredom or a sense of lack that these individuals are feeling. Sadly, such feelings of insecurity and inferiority are detrimental and even dangerous. It has taken a toll on the community, affecting it in a negative way. In having an inferiority complex toward another person or groups of people leads to prejudice and harmful acts against another human being. Such acts can range from cruel jokes to bullying, which can escalate to mental and physical harm or even death.
Every day I experience or learn of some fucked up thing someone did. I still get surprised and left confused upon knowing about some shit that has happened. You’d think by now I would be used to this kind of living and accept it as norm. But I can’t, especially when these acts don’t sit very well with me and never will because I’m not this way and, fortunately enough not everyone shares those negative sentiments outside this small hell.
So, all I can do is move (which I plan on doing here sometime in the not-so distant future) or in the meantime try to help others see the positive things in their life. I will continue to contribute and give back through random acts of kindness in hopes that others will follow suit. In addition, I will spread the word one-on one with the people I meet and encounter every day as well as globally through my writing on various different platforms online and offline.
It all starts with one person with an idea or ideal they want to share and spread with the world. With perseverance and tenacity that person can touch many others. It will be those others that will get involved and in turn go on to affecting many more people where this ideal will grow exponentially.
So, haters quit your hating! Love yourself and start making better use of your time in enjoying and loving life rather than wasting your energy on tormenting someone else to fill a void or emptiness you feel inside. The answer is not in destroying or sabotaging another person or even yourself but to introspectively focus on the cause of your hateful behavior and change it. Upon bringing this change internally will you see positive change externally in your environment, in how other people treat you and in overall change in how you view the outside world.
Check out and practice the Buddhist way of living and path to lifelong happiness. You can Google and learn effective techniques online, or read books on the topic but I will be providing further resources to reference through my blog. I’ll provide a list of recommended books, websites, and more information in future articles I will write.
My friends, we are on this journey called life and we all want to be happy. We, whether on a conscious or subconscious level are motivated and act on attaining said happiness or bliss. It’s how we act on it that matters. So lets make it matter by being happy and sharing that happiness in a
positive, effective way!
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP ALBUQUERQUE!!!!
I love men. In fact, I much prefer the company of men to women actually. However, that does not negate the fact there is a little something I don’t understand about the ma species. That is how they have complete disregard, disrespect and an overall lackk of consideration toward others, especially to the female population.
I can go on and on how men think their shit don’t stink and kings and even counter on how woman are evil, vicious, vindictive creatures. I will later and give my two cents on women on a later post. But for the sake of brevity I’m going to focus on a particular way men can just forget that women don’t view sex like they do and there’s proper conduct post sexual encounters with the other sex. I do hope to gain more insight and learn this appaling and confusing behavior by a lot of men.
I don’t understand how a man can sleep with a woman and then introduce another female into the social mix with out the other women or both feeling used and a last resort. In a situation like this, regardless what kind of prior arrangement was made, fellas keep the ladies you are f#@^& apart! No matter what a woman says she is going to feel bad about herself and feel like trash that has been tossed out.
My friend recently experienced such a thoughtless, senseless act today and I was extremely pissed myself. As if it was personally done to me. Well, I have been in her situation but more sadly I have experienced something similar with my husband. No there wasn’t cheating or anything but I may or may not touch on it on a later date. I want to have a good day and any time I start thinking something my love of my life did that hurt me it turns into a long, pissed off repetitive rant that leaves me feeling stupid, fuming mad and /rejected.
So yeah, why do guys like to intermingle women they are banging?
