My apologies

I am trying to use Windows Live Writer now, so if this looks weird then i m sorry, but I had to try, and blogger’s formatting (particularly with pictures) was driving me totally nuts.

I’m not quite sure how to express myself right now. I’m exhausted, I’m stressed out, ,I’m leaving for the field in a few days, I have friends having crises, I have to pack…

And I’m addicted to this website. I decided to use some of my favourite doodles to describe what’s going on in my life.

There’s going on fieldwork:


Coming to terms with having to produce something worthy of four years of my life:

beautiful4 beautiful6beautiful2

Beating back cynicism and negativity (I’d rather be a real optimist than a fake cynic, and cynicism is SO last week). Seriously, I’ve found myself being happy lately, and not for any particular reason. Maybe not having a reason is reason enough?


I’ve also finally moved on from somebody who hurt me quite badly a few months ago. It took me longer than I expected, and I kept realising that I had moved on, and then moving on further and then realising ‘hey, I’ve moved on!’ and then…


And, of course, coming to terms with who I used to be, and trying to accept the past for what it is.


How very profoundly zen-ish! Goes to show that insomnia has its uses!

Those doodles are pretty awesome. Very wise.

They're so cute and clever. I might snaffle a few for my own uses when sometimes - dare I write this - chocolate isn't helpful.....

Insomia is my favourite time of the year.

Insomnia goes with everything in my wardrobe.

Insomnia and I are BFF's forever.

In other words, my insomia kind of gets where you're coming from right now.

I disagree with you! Cynicism is always hip! As is bad spelling!

I'd be relieved to have an excuse to bugger off. consider yourself lucky.

Candice said...

Hurray for A Beautiful Revolution! It's my favourite website!

Po: the guy is a genius! I wish I could have all his designs on tshirts..

Kath: I'm going to pretend you didn't say that, otherwise I'm going to freak out!

Mutant: My insomnia says hi to your insomnia. Support group?

Becca: I'm glad you like them!

Sarah: You sound lonely and homesick. Oh no! Can I come and camp on yoour floor soon? Are you coming home for Christmas? Don't be sad!

Luke: I'll be putting eyeliner on you yet! Faux-cynicism is always in, but the real thing starts to eat away at your soul after a while.

EEbEE: every day!

Candice: It is awesome! I'm glad I randomly found it!
