|One of my personal favorites.|
Overcoming AnxietyWe’re a sorry mess of snapped heartstring and shattered glass aren’t we? And yet we walk toward each other blindly, a pair of lost souls looking for a little warmth. Howling and shivering and eeriness echoes around us. But what does that matter? A life worth living is a life worth feeling, a world worth knowing is a world worth hurting for. We brave all the storms as we hope for a better feeling, and the better feeling comes as our eyes know each other through the dark. A visceral hemorrhaging of excitement and jubilation is what we crave, a tube of superglue to piece the mirror back together, as it were. And we won’t rest our tired legs until we achieve our glorious end.Overcoming Anxiety by 3lly-rock-girl714
1-I really love cheese. I don't care that I am lactose intolerant (to a pretty mild degree), I will eat as much cheese as you will let me.
2- I love candles, and incense, and essential oils with wonderful aromas.
3- I think Adam Sandler is a fucking awful actor. He just irritates me.
4- I'm an insomniac.
5- I love being near water, and I love being in paddle boats all by myself.
6- I'm a HUUUUUUUGE sucker for really cheesy old movies, especially horror movies and musicals.
7- I have many nervous habits, one of the worst is what seems to be some form of dermatillomania which causes me to almost constantly pick the skin on my fingers.
8- Drawing and painting and making things and playing music gives me something to do with my hands, which keeps me from engaging in my various nervous habits and gives me an outlet for my overflowing mind.
9- I've been with my dear boy Nathan for 7 months now, and my how the time has flown
10- I really like ugly things. Ugly, old things. Ugly, old, dirty things. I don't know. I just really do.
11- I’ve got a pretty crazy range in music taste, but some of my very favorites include David Bowie, Billy Joel, Eskimo Joe, and The Cure.
12- I like teacups and teapots and stuff. I also like plants. I hope to one day have a collection of teacups and teapots that I can plant little things in, like herbs or small flowers or cacti or whatever.
13- I find everything to do with the Middle Ages pretty fascinating, ESPECIALLY if it pertains to the Black Death. I don't quite know why, but something about those plague doctor masks is just so incredibly, skin-crawlingly interesting.
14- I have a weird fixation for eyeballs and teeth (especially teeth). People tell me I should become a dentist or something but although I love teeth I don’t love the idea of poking around in people’s mouths.
15- Weird sea creatures are one of my favorite things. I want to cuddle them all.
Hey! And welcome to the wonderful, whimsical place that is my deviantART page|
To begin with, I'm goth/alternative. No, that doesn’t mean I worship Satan or that I want to murder you or that I do a lot of drugs. I just like all things spooky and creepy, tacky Halloween decorations, old underground bands, corny horror movies, the Victorian era, and haunting, well written literature. I will admit, however, that I DO have picnics and read books in graveyards like a stereotypical goth girl. Go ahead and judge me.
Next, yes, that is how my name is spelled, and it is pronounced pretty much the way it is spelt. (If you are French you probably already know that ) You have no idea how many substitute teachers have messed up my name.
The Tintin comics, the Lord of the Rings, and Alice in Wonderland, which were my favorite books growing up (or in Tintin’s case, comics) all had a significant influence on my growth. I began reading at a young age, and I’ve always got a book in the process of being read.
As a child, I enjoyed drawing a lot. I liked painting too but I didn’t always have paints or brushes that I could get my hands on, so, I mostly drew.
I'm rather introverted sometimes, but don't let that deter you. I'm quite friendly if you're friendly to me.
I take art classes, and experiment in a lot of different mediums. I do some photography (often nature photography), I paint sometimes, some cosmetic art, and some crafts. My favorite art mediums, however, are drawing (usually with graphite pencil but sometimes with other things), writing (short stories, longer stories, free verse poetry, songwriting) and music (composing for guitar, violin, vocals etc.).
I enjoy collecting and preserving bones.
Water is my element!
I am a PAGAN (my beliefs are mostly within the spectrum of Wicca and Celtic practices), and I am still exploring my spirituality. As for everyone else’s religions, I don’t really care what you’re into as long as you don’t force bullshit down my throat. I don’t appreciate belittlement or badgering.
I am pansexual (can have sexual or romantic feelings for men, women, and anyone in between.) Pan Pride!!
I love reptiles. Like, a lot. Also birds. And sea creatures.
My heart's true passion is music. I research music and movements and bands a lot, I write music and play music and listen to music. My heart beats for it. If we like the same bands, we will probably get along well, haha.
I have a few mental illnesses which complicate life a lot. Despite these, and despite having struggled with self-injury, a previous eating disorder and a couple other things I won't mention here, I am healing and growing and learning to love life, and I am so much stronger than I was. And you know what? I’m learning to love myself too, which is something I’ve never had before. I am broken, but I am beautiful.
There are so many places I’ve been, so many things I’ve seen, but despite this being more than many other people my age have experienced, instead of sating my lust for life it has only sparked an even deeper, more ravenous hunger for the world. I don’t want to simply EXIST, I want to Live. I aspire to be a journalist in the future for at least the first part of my working career, like my hero Tintin, and see some of the world and have my own adventure.
Anyways, enough of that. I hope you enjoy my art, and I hope we can watch each other and maybe be friends.
