Depression Isn't RealDepression isn’t true, my dearMore Like This
Depression isn’t real.
It’s just a silly tragedy
You’ve forced yourself to feel.
Anxiety is fake, my friend
You wonder why it’s there.
But others have it worse than you!
Stop forming false despair.
Cutting is dramatic, love,
It’s ugly, and it’s dumb.
Why not just get over it?
Is the attention fun?
Suicide is stupid, dear,
And selfish, if I may.
Get over yourself, darling,
Can you hear these things I say?
Why aren’t you replying, love?
Oh, where could you have gone?
I never meant to hurt you, love,
Did I say something wrong?
Why aren’t you replying, dear?
Depression isn’t true!
Oh, but yes it was, “my dear”...
Just maybe not for you.
Because They Laughed: A Loss of Innocence Memoir This is the story of the day I was murdered.More Like This
The sun was shining on the elementary school playground. The grass was damp, but I had never seen a bluer sky. I loved the color blue because it was the color of my eyes. I jumped from one round, gray stone to the next. In first grade, as I was when this story takes place, I reveled in the shade of the small tree by the small school building. I could see everyone, but they couldn’t see me, well, completely anyway. I batted at a wet branch and laughed, a noise that was high pitches and sounded like the cross between a hiccup and bells. Water droplets from the yellowing leaves splashed against my tanned skin. I was reminded of the storm from the night before. Butch, my golden Labrador retriever, had gotten frightened and ran away again as he often does during storms. Despite the frequencies of his departures, I felt sick to my stomach with worry all day.

:iconelectricsorbet:, one of my oldest and dearest friends and I came back for funzies today. Not sure how long it'll last, but we're both pretty hardcore into Gorillaz right now, and they've been getting us off our butts and drawing again... which hasn't happened for me personally in YEARS. I don't even care WHAT it is at this point. It just feels good to draw again. I've really missed it.:iconthepluralofmoth: might be around more too. We'll see.
Being honest here, I probably won't be doing Zepptoons anymore. I'm not taking anything I've done off the site. It'll always be here for y'all to re-read and enjoy... it's just kinda nice to have a fresh start, ya feel? I've had nothing but compliments on my stuff from you guys, and I really REALLY appreciate that. It's helped me grow as an artist, and seeing the stuff you guys put out there is motivation too.
Anyway, things are good, and I still love y'all. :

Wow, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. I'm still having allergic reactions off and on, but overall I'm feeling much better and having better quality of life. I'm even writing poetry, which I hadn't done in a month in a half. Bye, medication menace, don't let the door hit you on the way out. I will eat again without being afraid of becoming ill; I will remember what the hell I did last month; and damn you, I will write poetry.
I've also been transcribing and learning a ton while doing it. I even had a job interview, although I didn't get the position. So I'm working hard on the storyboard, so to speak, to see what might happen next.
Other than that, been mostly having a ton of adventures with Jordan and his friends and family. Jordan, Jacky, Dylan, Diana, Diana's little brother, and I went and had Chinese a few weeks ago, which was amazing. Jacky's farewell party was last weekend, and we all shared dinner and played games at Dave &

Wow, so I keep doing this thing where I don't write journals for several weeks at a time. A lot's been going on. My most recent author client had the first-time publication jitters, so I went over his manuscript one more time and am now eagerly awaiting its release. I've also been job-searching like crazy and attended an online career fair for people with disabilities today.
I'm also coming to terms with living with anxiety. I came out several months ago as having PTSD, but when a lot of things were up in the air last month, such as a small housefire (more about that later), I realized it was time to get a little help. It hasn't been easy for me, but for the most part I've felt a lot better having faced that head-on.
Okay. So the fire. Texas has gotten a lot of crazy rain this year, which we've needed, but it's pretty out-of-character for us. During one such crazy storm late last month, a transistor near my backyard was apparently st

Hi there watchers!
(I doubt many people will look at this rofl. xD Probably having a reaction like this: )
One of deviantart's talented poets
decided to share some a creative poetry game with her watchers.
Here's a link to her journal entry
(she's a splendid poet by the way):
The rules were: "Put your iPod/iTunes/Spotify/Pandora/music player of some kind on shuffle, and then write the first lyric of each song that comes up. Do this for twenty songs, and you'll create a poem!
NO SKIPPING, you must use whatever song pops up no matter how silly, nonsens
