ONE MORE DAY LEFT ! The last picture will be up tomorrow (:
I read this quote from tumblr and I really liked it , I repsect whoever came up with it (: I have a deck of cards that have about 7 cards missing from it , so I decided to use for pictures now . I liked the back of them so since I'm trying to find new ways to write quotes on , I decided why not write it on thew back (: The front seemed a little too distracting .
I've had a few people on dA sending me mean messages like "your work is so s**t" and "get off dA you pathetic girl" and such , and it's really got me down and I feel in no mood to upload . Despite it all , I just ignore them anyway and just carry on because there are so many of you who send me such lovely messages , and I really want to thank you (: There were actually some people on tumblr who sent me really nice messages , anonymous and not , and I really want to say thank you to them too because you really brightened up my day (: and this quote is true , a few nice words can really make someone much happier .
Since I'm trying to do quotes in different ways , I saw this picture of masking tape on wood . I really liked it and tried it out myself (: I changed the message on the tape though . The picture is kind of lousy , but this awful cold is making me so tired and uncreative .
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass , it's about learning to dance in the rain ."
Only very recently I understood what this quote really means . In life , when things get bad , you can't just wait and not do anything and wait for it to pass , because most likely , the problem won't pass . You've got to learn to get through the bad times , see the bright of things and learn to dance in the rain . My auntie died 2 days ago , and even though it's very sad , I know that I can't mourn over her forever , and that I need to pick myself up and carry on . Because that's life , it's just keeps going whether you want it to or not . Side note: that's not my quote , but I really love it .
Oh man , i'm sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while ! My birthday is tomorrow and i'm turning 16 and i've been really busy getting all my school work done and setting up things for tomorrow as i'm invited a few friends round . Thanks for all the early birthday messages ! I'll write a journal about tomorrow soon ! Take care everyone .
"You laugh at me because i'm different , but I laugh at you because you're all the same ."
A lovely watcher of mine called ~mema450 wanted me to do this quote for her (: I really like this quote as I really can relate . People may call me "weird" and "different" but I see that as a good thing . Why be a copy from everyone else when you can be original ? I said I wanted to find new ways of doing quotes and I thought doing it on receipts was a nice idea as it links with the quote: they look all the same .
Happy Valentines day ! I feel like some people force love upon themselves and get a girl/boyfriend for the sake of not being alone on this day , which is kind of sad . I heard this quote from my twitter and I really wanted to make a quote of it . The beauty about love is that it catches you off guard , and almost comes out of the blue . So , this year , don't look for love , let it look for you !
"When someone else's happiness is your happiness , that is love ." - Lana Del Rey Oh man I love Lana . I was so happy when she won a brit award :')
Anyway , this is a funky quote I heard from her which I love . I've seen a photo before of someone holding a heart to the sky , so I tried it myself and took this photo of me holding a heart cushion I got a few years ago - good thing the weather was nice today for the sky to look like this .
"People wait all week for friday , all year for summer and all life for happiness ."
This isn't my quote - I heard it off tumblr and it just really made me think .. It's almost quite strange to think about how long some of us wait for happiness . Years of your life can fly by as you're waiting for it . It's kind of scary . However , happiness varies for all people , and some may find it young , whereas others may find it when old .
Meh I don't really like how I did this photo :/ looks a bit too rushed and I've drawn it on the page not as well as I wanted unnngghhhh it looks too 'girly/flowely' and I wanted a more serious approach -.- sorry guys . I really wanted to upload a picture this week but I was rushing a lot this weekend so ungghhh . I'm really brain dead at the moment , i've just had 11 exams in the past 9 days .. at least I only have 3 more to go woo . haha this top makes me look like a ghost .
"Stop being afraid of what could go wrong , and think of what could go right ."
I guess it's one of those quotes where the main message behind it is to see the positives rather than the negatives and act on it . I started doing this thing at the beginning of 2013 that whenever I think of something bad , I always things of 2 other good things from the situation . For example: It's raining . 1 bad thought: my hair will get ruined . 2 good thoughts: Plants will get watered and the smell after the rain will be lovely (: just trying to be more positive .
Firstly , this isn't my quote (: I love maps as backgrounds - they're just so interesting to look at .
*I accidently put 'be/act more mature' twice - my bad !
I've made quite a few resolutions this year .. hopefully i'll achieve them by the end of 2013 . The ones in the picture aren't my own resolutions , but these are ones I saw other people trying to achieve by the end of this year . The book I used is actually a diary I got so I could write down the foods I eat because i'm trying to be more healthy (: This is a different type of picture , I did the obvious editing of the lists over the diary on purpose but ah well , i'm still just experimenting . What are your new year resolutions ? I found out as a fact that 80% of people fail their resolutions each year , oh well .
"Life doesn't have to be perfect to be ... wonderful ."
Not my quote , but I love it and agree with it soooo much . Also , I got my camera back yesterday (hoorah !) so I decided to do a quote for today (: I did stick the paper on the window .. but it just looks like it's floating in mid air idk
I have been so unbelievably busy this week though , holy crap - my final marking for my Product Design Portfolio and manufacture is all due in tomorrow , so I've spent all week finishing it all off , I've also been doing more painting for my art assignment (i'm on my final painting now which I will upload on dA when finished) and also 12 additional pieces of homework from all my other subjects , jesus I think i'm gonna pass out from all this work .
