The Stress of Changes

As most people reading this already know, I'm in the process of moving to a new city for college. This is a stressful and confusing process for me. I'm not familiar with moving out on my own - naturally - and starting college is by far an alien experience. I was given my class timetable …

Being an “Artist”

Okay, here's the thing. Everyone who knows me knows that I'm an "artist". I draw, I paint, I make art things all the freaking time. That's my thing. But, am I An Artist? In my own eyes, no, I'm not yet An Artist, even though I've done enough art - including paid commission-work - to be considered …

Brockville, Ontario

I went on a trip to Brockville with my parents about two weeks ago. I put off writing about it for a while (organising my thoughts recently has been oddly difficult) but finally, here's what I thought of the experience. It was a long, tedious drive made stressful by the time constraints, but once we …

Woodstock, Ontario

I live in a small city in southwestern Ontario called Woodstock, the same place that I've lived for over six years. I went to high school here. This is where I first got to go out and explore by myself, and now I'm comfortable in my general knowledge of where everything is in the city. One …

Inception

I'm having another down day. It's rainy and beautiful outside, so you'd think that might cheer me up, but it isn't. I had a weird dream last night that stuck with me after waking up, and despite sleeping 8 or 9 hours I'm tired. Instead of going on about having a down day, I'm going …

Writer’s Block

The last time I published writing was exactly a month ago. Not counting this post, I have five drafts that I haven't been able to finish. My second blog has several drafts, too, and I've been entirely unsuccessful with my novel-writing. Since writing posts like I normally do (with a clear subject and lots of planning) …

Stir-Crazy

I want to try something different with this post since I'm finding my brain likes doing things in abstract ways (like the doodling). I'm going to try to colour-code ideas with different text colours. I feel like I'm going stir-crazy, waiting for life to happen. I know I've written about this countless times and I doubt …
