I’m Still Here 

I haven't written in a while. I've been too preoccupied with life at the moment.. Not sure if that's good or bad really at this point in my life. Things have gone great, things have gone sour, things have gone amazing. It all depends on the day you catch me on and what I'm doing unfortunately. Sometimes I feel like I just can't win either way, but that doesn't matter to anyone. 

A little update – I had my first art show at The Steamtown Mall last night for the Steamtown Market. I guess it was a success. I had many friends there to support me and so many stayed with me, but I didn't sell much or as much as I wanted to at least. Maybe one day I'll get there. I got a lot of "Wow, you're really talented." And "Wow those look great, you have a good eye." But I only sold maybe 3-4 things. Didn't make a profit really after all I spent to go into this. But there's hope and more chances in the future. Here's a couple photos from the night – my stand looked alright. It could have been better and bigger like everyone else's there but it just wasn't since this was my first show. 


Anyway – I'm off to NJ tomorrow to visit my mom for Mother's Day and I hope I don't fall asleep from being so tired after this weekend.

Cheers,

The Foam at The Top

So I took some new pictures recently at Georgetown Deli and Beer Store in Wilkes Barre, PA and wanted to share them with you.

Who doesn’t like a good brew some days? Everyone needs something after a long week of work and losing an hour of sleep today. I was able to go to King of Prussia this weekend and IKEA to get some new things for the apartment next door that I needed and we stopped at the Rock Bottom Brewery as well and that place was probably the best place I have been for food in a very long time – lunch was also only $30 for two people and food and drinks. That’s perfect. It sucks we’re not closer to the place, but for now we’ll make it a point to go down there whenever we go to IKEA or KOP Mall.

Overall, this weekend was awesome and I was able to get a few things I wanted at IKEA. Not all of it unfortunately, but I’ll be going back in like a month to get the wardrobe I need for my room so I’m excited for that. It wouldn’t fit in my car. I need a bigger car. I’m tempted to get a larger car next year if I’m able to save up a little bit and can trade mine in also. Im thinking small SUV or jeep or something like that. Nothing “mom” though. I hate that. I don’t plan on kids so I don’t want a “mom car” at all. Just something larger and classier and so I can fit more stuff in.

Anyway, off to sleep early tonight. I lost an hour of sleep and didn’t get to sleep until 4am this morning and I regret it majorly. I’m so tired.

More later.

Cheers,

Demention

‘There is an area of the mind that could be called unsane, beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there’s insanity. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity.’

Well there it is guys. That’s where I got my name from. Have any of you ever heard of the acid trip band called Hallucinogen? Well, now you have and you’re welcome.

They are rad and I remember listening to this when I was in high school just sitting there thinking, “Wow, who ever wrote this must have been on some pretty rad drugs that I’ll never take so I have to live vicariously through them for the time being.” And so I did. This is where my name came from and I don’t think there is an actual video for the song but just listen to what I have below. Just pretend you are on acid – or if you are, even better for you because this beat is very different and amazing. They only have a few songs from what I can tell but man did the lyrics make sense to me.

It’s a Friday night and I’m sitting here just browsing the internet because people think they need to tell me how to live my life recently and I’m just getting plain sick of it. I’m sorry, I need to take my lynch when? Oh okay, so I’m not even allowed to pick it any more? I have to go when other people go because you said so? Okay, yeah that’s cool. Stop the micro-managing and we’ll all be a bit happier I think. I know it doesn’t come from you but if you’re not the one with the actual problem with me then leave it alone. I will not be told to do something I’m uncomfortable with and I most certainly will not do it with you yelling at me telling me I have to. That’s not how I work. Sorry.

That there are doors that they are afraid to go in
And they don’t want us to go in there either
Because if we go in there we might learn something
That they don’t know
And that makes us a little out of their control

I’ve been reading a lot lately. A lot of books that I haven’t read before and a lot of books that I have actually read before. Divining the Future is an amazing book that I came across in the New Age section of Barnes and Nobles a few years ago and it’s amazing and talks all about spirituality. Not that I really am into that stuff, but I think a lot of the quotes and things in there might be useful for helping me de-stress from this job and other things in my life like my money situation I’m currently in. I need something to help me with that because right now, nothing else is helping and I don’t know what to do. So I’m reading this book to see how to not be so stressed with every single thing I do in life these days. So far so good, I still have a lot to go though since it’s a long book.

I’m going to lead you, kicking and screaming, giggling and laughing, into the future. I’m going to relax you, I’m going to get you! A spiritually cleansing derangment of the senses. The happy choas out of witch enlightment might come. Oh no that was real, lets get out of here.

Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on enough for the night. I hope you guys enjoy my new layout I just re-did again. I really love how WordPress is coming out with more and more free options for us basic users and more customizations. Finally. I remember when I had stated this there weren’t that many and now there are over 4 dozen free options with more that just keep on coming. So thank you, WordPress.

How Many Times Did I Say How Many Times?

Happy (Belated) New Year!

I know it’s a late post, and I meant to post this sooner, but my life is crazy right now. Between being swamped at work recently with backlogged stuff the other person left me to do and trying to learn everything about the Worker’s Comp Law business and dealing with Attorneys – I feel like I’m drowning at work sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it, and it pays well, but the drive and having to pay for parking (which I think is stupid) and once I need to pay for Health Insurance myself, I don’t think I’m going to make it money wise anymore. I’m trying to figure out ways to make some money on the side and get a little extra cash flow in here, but the only way that I know how to do that is to sell photos that I’ve created, or make more art, or something else like that. Also, Photoshoots are a good thing for me also, but then the factor comes in as to when I have the time to do that. I’m trying to figure out when I can do that.

I’m running a special right now for the winter, so if you’re in the area of Northeast PA, let me know. I can also travel to NJ and do other areas like that since my family is there. $60 will get you 5 edited digital images and an hour of shooting on location within 10 miles of Wilkes Barre, PA. Or for an extra 20$ in another place (NJ mostly.)

I’ve been listening to alot of Childish Gambino, Kid Cudi and The Weekend lately, what’s up with that? But I mean come on, who doesn’t love Donald Glover though? If you don’t love him then you’re silly. My music tastes go all over the place recently and I kind of enjoy it. Right now I’m listening to Up Up and Away by Kid Cudi and it just makes me want to dance and sing- which is what I need.

I’ll be up up and away, up up and away cause in the end they’ll judge me anyway so whatever. 

I’ve also still been playing a lot of Diablo 3 again – I almost forgot how much I loved that game until I started again recently. And I’ll be starting Season 5 this weekend if anyone wants to play with me! KayeRavyn#1220 on Battle.net to add me and run some rifts or something. There’s also WoW too that I’ve been playing, but not as much and then I started on Guild Wars 2 because well, it’s free, haha. I like free things, like Diablo and GW2. WoW I understand is big and all but I don’t think there’s any reason to charge monthly just to play the game when you can one shot done pay for a game on Steam or even a console for a certain amount.

Moving on now –

I’ve made some new sections in my Etsy shop to try and sell different things and I want to make some other art like cards and geeky things like that. Here are some sample pictures – they are all Macro shots and are shot with my iPhone and the lens attachments I got for Christmas. Which, by the way, was an amazing gift in itself, lol. They are awesome and I can’t stop using them at all. Here’ have a look and see if there’s anything you like. You can purchase these on my Etsy HERE. Hopefully I start to make some sales from this to help with my money problems I’ve been having recently also. So please help out! 🙂

Anyway, it’s noon on a Saturday and I’m waiting for laundry to be done so I can go out and get some shopping done and what not for house things. I need to get food for lunches (which usually consist of lunchables because I’m poor and they fill me up, lol.) But nonetheless, I still need to eat so I have to go out and get some stuff. Also cat food for the little monsters because they’re fat and need food too.

More later everyone! Enjoy the photos and remember every little bit helps me out if you can, I definitely need more excuses to help me pick up my camera again – it’s been awhile.

Cheers, xoxox
