To people or not to people?

I have been fluctuating a lot being enjoying peoples company and absolutley hating being around them (and I mean people in general). I don't know how many times I must learn this lesson but it seems one I am doomed to repeat until the end of time. Someday I will learn that it is really best just to keep my mouth shut and keep my hands to myself. Maybe it is just my introverted self saying this but it seems better to just stay slightly aloof from people. Or maybe it is just the part of me that once I have decided I like you and I am going to be close to you I give it my all and I am always hurt when people don't care for me as much. So then I retreat into my shell to be aloof to people until someone comes along and the cycle repeats itself. I am pretty sure this sounds rather emo but that is not what I am going for. I am just making some observations.

I love being a brain ninja. I freaking love it. I do have a talent for it which makes things so entertaining. It seems like such a cruel thing to take pride in but it couldn't make me happier. =)

*pokes around in the woodwork*

Hello? Umm...I just wanted to tell you to stop sending all the assholes and losers my way. I am not the type of girl who falls for them. And putting bows on there heads doesn't help so it is really just a waste of your time. I keep telling you you have the wrong address and they cost a shitton in postage to send back to you. Besides the constant confusion you have had me on hold for quite awhile.

You know what I like and what I am looking for so I am not really sure what all the confusion is. So I just have one question. Can I have my nice boy now? I know you keep them hiding in there and I would really appreciate it if you got the address right this time. I hope you got that.

Tree Hugger

I am a tree hugger
a tree lover
I hold the hands of the leaves
that hold me high
I soar on the sharp scent
of Pines and Firs
I walk the woodland floor
needles drifting to my hair
Trees whisper
Stay and learn to love and listen
as none but the eternal forest can

THE SENATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO ECSTATIC!!!!! The amazing, awesome, wonderful and entirely epic band The Senate came and performed at my school tonight!! This is their second to last concert as the three of them are going on to seperate projects. It is so sad that this will be the last time I get to see them for awhile but what a concert to end on! It was energetic, loud, and full of hippie dances ^^ I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend my night! Thank you Andrew, Nick, and Oliver! You three are awesome and your music always makes me completely happy and just want to dance! Can't wait to see your reunion tour =D

A Bit of Art

My last post was about the creativity everyday challenge and I have obviously not posted any sort of art but that does not mean I have been completely idle. For my art class at school we had to create six different collage pieces based off of an "object" that held some emotional response for us. Our teacher is really into the interpretive and personal side of art so we could literally do anything about anything. I chose my childhood home as it holds a lot of memories for me. Most of what I did is not based on specific memories but more of feelings and moods I get thinking about that part of my past.

In my opinion this is the best piece that I did and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. All the collages look better in person by the way haha.

This would be my second favorite piece. A bit of watercolor stuff. It isn't perfect but I was really trying to capture the color of the memory more than the physical images.

A very childlike view of a garden. Made with ripped up pieces of construction paper and mod-podge.
