So I booked a bus ticket to NYC for November 11 - November 16th. Leaving at 10:30PM on the 11th, arrive at 7:45AM on the 12th Leaving at 9:00PM on the 15th, arriving at 8:15AM on the 16th. Should be fun, right? I’m staying with my friend, Alejandro, and we’ll explore NYC together. I wish I could stay longer but a girl’s gotta work! And I feel bad leaving my studio for so...
Want to know a funny story? No? Too bad, here it is. It’s at the expense of my dignity so you should find it kind of funny. Sidenote: I have a weird pain on the left side of my body right under my ribs. It’s a sharp throbbing pain that happens maybe, once every 8-10mins. Diagnose please. Anyways. So I went to the bar last night (Bar 56 to be exact) as a going away shin-dig for my...
Deep Confession Nmbr2
I watch a lot of Britain’s Got Talent on Youtube. Like, a lot. And I find it very uplifting.
Well then, absolutely no recollection of the previous post. I’m surprised it makes sense.
Lord help me
So I’m sitting here on the bus. Pretty wasted. I don’t know how I’m going to get up and walk out of this high speed vehicle but i’m going to try. I do know this: no one has thrown up yet so it’s only a matter of time. Unless everyone else besides me decided not to venture out into a bar and are just trying to get home from a wholesome night. Okay, wish me luck. The...
Mo money mo problems
Whenever I go to the bank, I always get the same poor teller without fail. Her name is Breanna and for the past year since I’ve been getting tattoos, fate has directed the bank line so i always get her. I’ve bothered her to either take out wads of cash at a time (specifically in 50s), change my hundreds into smaller currency, or ask her dumb questions. Like today I went in to get a...
Painting Progress [Not]
I was going to post progress photos of my latest painting but then realized that there’s a lot of it that needs to get fixed up (mainly proportions) so I won’t be posting it. The thing I hated the most about being in such a public studio space at school was when people would see my WIP’s and then be like “oh the hand is angled wrong” I don’t mind when people see...
Palette for the Day
Welcome to my palette for painting number 3.
I need to detox. This is probably the earliest I’ve been home in a long time and it’s already 9:47PM. I think I’m going to dedicate this week to painting, reading, class, work, and sleep. Most of all: Me. … And my friends. D’oh.
I know you think I’m a mess and I cause you much insecurity. I know you don’t need me sometimes, and I know that you’re really busy, but I know you still love me. You leave me out to dry without any hopes of being used more than once but I am incredibly dependent on you and I cannot express myself without you. Please come back to me. Signed, Your oil paint collection. _____ ...
Today I had to deal with the most difficult mother in the whole entire world. Her daughter (probably 15) came in to try a short winter coat on. And those aren’t cheap, we’re talking $275. Anyways, they came in and asked to try on a medium. Now, this kid is 15 years old and probably weighs the same as me but is a tad taller, and I’m thinking, “okay, no way you’re a...
Andrew Morrow has been an artist that I have admired since first year university. He was actually a masters student at the University of Ottawa when I met him. I remember my first year painting class was located right beside his studio and he would often waltz up the stairs in his biking gear and say a quick hello. Not much later, he would come around our class and look at what we were painting....
You know when you’re at a point in your life, and you make the conscious decision to remember a moment within that point in your life because you know it’s significant? I had a point like that back in October: I was walking home from the 95 stop at around 2AM after being at James St. Pub with a few of my friends. I was going through a bit of a confusing time and a Foo Fighters phase...
Chai Latte Cupcakes
Earlier this week I got the chance to hangout with 3 of the most amazing people ever. Katie, Ryan and John have been friends with me since 1st year university and I’m so glad to have met them. Those late nights in Introduction to Psychology with John followed by late nights at 1848 are very cherished memories of mine. John, remember when I cut off your hair at 1848? Haha. I met Ryan in my...
You’re. Your. Their. They’re. There. Should HAVE not should OF. Bitches be rufflin’ my feathers these days. I suck at grammar but I still try. Do the same.

Update: I found my cable Got me my second ever sandwich from La Bottega. Scanwiches? This photo terrifies me so much. I’m somewhere under that mask thing and the dress hanging around my neck.
I’m upset. I can’t find my cable to put my Rebel photos onto my computer. Also, I meant to go to the studio early this morning but failed at that. Maybe I’ll go after work. Work is getting in the way of far more important things in my life. If I’m not at work, I’m at school, if not that, then I’m quite tired. My priority at that point is to sleep and see my...
Hi, friendships. I’m procrastinating from going to my studio. Yeah, I haven’t gone yet. What did I do instead? Well, I rolled out of my friend’s bed this morning and stumbled over to the bus terminal to go home after a long night of steady fun. I had the quick chance to lay down for an hour before heading back downtown to meet up with my pal, Alina. We then explored and wreaked...
Well there goes my credibility. I need zinc white, not titanium. What was I thinking? Well, DeSerres is having a sale for two large tubes of titanium white for ten dollars. It’s going on until the 25th. Enjoy And pick me up some zinc.
Another artist that has inspired me goes by the name of Natalia Fabia. She is a talented mixed media artist who stages her settings, takes photos of it, and then turns it into a painting. I find it interesting that she paints on wood panel. I hate painting on wood panel, personally. I enjoy feeling the canvas underneath my brush. There’s a nice bounce to it that makes me feel like the...

I miss being in love.
