soo.... no job yet. at home in gallia with my parents in the forseeable future. screwed up my graduate stuff, but man I was having serious panic attacks even just thinking about it, so the paperwork hasn't exactly been finished. that hasn't helped things.

attempting to get my shit together enough to try and make a place for myself in the indie comic industry. I have little idea what I'm doing, and I have no fucking clue if I'm a good enough artist/story teller to bother trying. not that many people that are even my friends seem impressed by it.

not dating anyone...so everyone else in my fucking life has a boyfriend or a husband and kids, so... yeah. feeling the spinster thing.

dunno.. seems like every decision I made that seemed like the safest at the time just wasn't the best, or got me as far as I need to be. i can't even get a stupid call center job. it prolly doesn't help that I just don't know what I want to do or what I'm cut out to do.

okay, so,
if you have serious mental health issues on top of serious health issues that mean you end up in the hospital alot and end up on disability, which means you get just enough money to cover your rent, apparently....
why the FUCK do you go and have a baby? why? seriously?
I'm sorry, if you end up needing to go to the ER once a month, maaaaybe a baby isn't a great idea.

also, my half sister is pregnant. my mom is so mad that she didn't wait till her insurance kicked in three weeks because now the pregnancy is a pre-existing condition, apparently.
plus she doesn't like her husband.

I don't know who to backup or what to say to anyone.
I'm seriously jealous of everyone getting married or having babies. the last time I tried to have a date was with a creepy guy from india that wanted a green card and a slutty american girlfriend. I'm so fucking lonely in kent since my friend got married and moved away to go to a different school.

I'll just keep knitting, and hope I get this job in columbus.

after a lifetime of my mom trying to encourage me to be a girly girl and training me to be able to run a household, mom admits that my brother is the better cook (tho I'm not bad) and I'm the one that's handier with tools and fixing things.

3: skein some yarn to sneak dye with some natural dyes to add to my collection.
4: finish up weaving monday and tuesday, maybe early weds at latest.
5:get the craft reader and work on my questions for seminar

7:visit fashion library and start on that indigo paper for art history.
8: win back the heart and affection of my lost lady-love.

so yeah. hi lj. havn't talked to you much lately, prolly has kept some drama down over the last couple years. dunno if any of my friends are still around but... damn.
so, one of my best friends from university got married today.


I didn't even know.

I found out when I saw someone else's post on facebook about it. I know she's been living in Europe, but something would have been nice.

I dunno, this on top of me trying to reach out to someone else I've drifted apart from and miss so badly, and it just not working well. I want to try, I and putting as much effort into it as I can, but having conversation about anything BUT her is like pulling teeth. anything else and the conversation stops. like there's no interest or desire to reconnect.


I know I'm not good at expressing what I am thinking or feeling directly to someone. when I was young, anything I felt was told was "being crazy" or "being a bitch" and unacceptable. it was better to just not say anything and not be rejected. which gets me into trouble when I try to say things indirectly like, say, thru frakking livejournal. a bad habit which I have tried to break and prolly haven't really.
I don't know. maybe I'm just lonely and want the closeness I had before I moved away. I might graduate by may and then move to god knows where, so maybe its all in vain.
I'll go wash my face and bury this sadness in beer and food, because there arn't alot of other options right now.

Subject:Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Security:Public

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

we think man-made things last forever. rust is nature's equalizer, nature brings these things down, back to her status quo.

I really wish telling my mom I'm depressed and seriously anxious because I have no clue how to proceed with my life would get something more useful then "ask god for guidance."

I think I've grown up since 2003. when I graduated from highschool, I'd never had a good dating experience, I didn't really have many friends, and I think i've learned how to be a friend, or least learn how to interact and have relationships with other people.
but I miss the confidence I had back then. I hate being anxious and worried, and back then I never did. everything was going to be okay.

i did something I regret now, and I'm sure it would be the wrong time to say anything to that person. but I think of them more and more now, and I miss them.
I'm not sure there is anything I can do but try and provide just a little bit for them. maybe things will change again.

I have no idea where I'll be in a year, or what I'll be doing. it may not matter anymore then, I could be anywhere. I could be teaching art, I could give it up and go into an IT job.

I just don't know.

gonna be in SEATTLE for the summer!! going to GET OUT OF OHIO! (for an internship at a yarn store. fully expect a slightly busier version of when I used to bum around heavenly fiber arts on the weekends)
my parents have already said they fully expect me to never return. to be fair, they are surprised I've stayed this long. they've expected me to leave since highschool. but that's how girls in the family go, we move away.


freaking out, but I'll be fine once I'm there.
also, I'd like some feedback on trying to draw different faces and some slightly different styles.
