Dear friend I haven't met yet,
This Christmas just gone my sister gave me this book, "The Perks of being a Wallflower"; it's really great, you should read it. And I guess it has inspired me to start writing these journals like this on here. I like to write but I don't class myself as one of those writers who can describe things all fancy like. What gets typed or written down is how I speak, which is how the book is written. It was heart-warming and sort of ones of those books that help you feel less alone when you're feeling really alone. I had a year that started off like that; and it goes through waves.
I feel like this site is one of the only safe spaces on the internet, so lets hope it doens't prove me wrong.
I finished my first collage today:
I know it's kind of weird, but that is what I like. To be honest with you, I have no idea what I'm trying to say with it or if I should be trying to say anything at all.
My aim is to get enough done to set up my own little exhibition, that would be pretty sweet.
I do a lot of different styles of art, so much so that I've had to go under different names. I'll share these names eventually. But this collage is under my name.
I spent like three weekends straight cutting out 16 magazines that I bought from a charity shop, they were all 49p each, mega bargain!
I've actually done Rooster Teeth related art but I want to send it to them by mail before I send it on here, I don't know why but that's just what I want to do.
To be honest with you, I'm at this very uncertain point in my life where I don't know how my life is going to turn out in the next few months, I can't give details why, which I know is a very annoying thing to say. But it's just true.
I think I would like to get away now, it's crazy how quickly things can turn, and how one small event eventually leads into a very life changing event. I always sit and think and try to evaluate what had happened exactly to get to where I am now. Its a very useful thing to do, sit down and evaluate your life.
I also finished reading 'the Catcher in the Rye'; also a very good book! I do recommend you read it. To be honest, I'm not sure what happens, not a lot happens at all. But it's just the character's mind that is the interesting part. I think I am interested in how minds work. I got an idea for a book and I think that is how I would write it, like the perks of being a wallflower and the catcher in the rye. I have no idea if I'll ever get around to writing it. My mind kind of jumps from one thing to the next, quite passionately as well. It sort of worries me actually, it is quite concerning. I never fully finish anything. I sort of go round in circles to about 20 different things.
So anyway, I hope you like my art. I will post more art. And more of what goes on in my brain. I bet no one will read this, but I'm not really bothered ahaha.
Oh, and here is my face. Because I have only posted that one picture of my face from a few years ago and I feel like that picture doesn't represent me too well as it was for this shoot that I got asked to do. I don't do shoots normally. I just went to the hairdressers and the hairdresser wanted to colour my hair, and then pictures were taken, and then it was submitted for this competition, and then I had to go down a catwalk, and then we won that part of the competition so I had to do the whole catwalk thing all over again. I am not a catwalk kind of girl. It was a very interesting time though; professional models are actually lovely. But it is very boring being a model.
So here is a recent picture of my cut hair and normal face.
Something in my room just made a fart noise, and it wasn't me.
Until the next time.
