  • yesterday ani and i had a visit with her psychologist to work on some perfectionist thinking. she’s basically a mini me. lucky her. 👯‍♀️
.
i’m really trying to be okay with less than perfect creations lately. so much easier said than done though .
.
learning about yourself and changing your thinking at the age of eight seems so much easier than later in life. like when you’re 43. 😉

  • ⏳Wow does time fly! ⌛️⁣
⁣
Have you ever seen these old pictures of the Calgary Tower getting built? 😱⁣
⁣
Did you know that the restaurant level was only the second revolving restaurant in Canada when it opened in 1968. The floor rotates 360 degrees once every 45 minutes at Lunch and once every hour for Dinner.💡⁣

  • Hey there Earth8bound friends. I’m so excited and honoured this stunning piece I created is on its way to a repeat customers best friends wedding in California! This white themed biosphere has an ‘Alba’ bleeding heart, selenite, mushrooms, moss, forget me not, a subtle dandelion wish seed and baby’s breath that were my brother’s wedding flowers! So much wonderfulness in one pendant. Want a custom piece of your very own? Send me a message I would love to create something special just for you!

  • Day 23 is ancient.

A few days ago I finished work and decided to go to the bar for a post shift bevy. Once entering the bar I soon realised that most of my younger new colleagues were grouped together and getting ready for a night out downtown.

Two older colleagues close to my own age then preceded to abandon the youths and joined myself, frustrated with the generational gap and life experiences of the shot swilling babies. 
We talked about being "old" and getting out of touch with their lingo. I learned about "Yeet" and how to use it, subsequently I will probably never use this term in any other form other than to mock the kids. 
I'm not sure how I feel about older generations adapting and using slang or lingo from the younger generations, it feels forced, slow and conventionally uncool when adults try to adapt. However I do understand there's nothing wrong with keeping up with trends, adapting is a natural process of life. I dont want to be an ancient man who's bitter and says things like " back in my day blah blah blah" and be ignorant to new things, sayings or ideas.

  • Typed out excerpts from sketchbook entries:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have sketchbooks full of writing that always influence my pieces, but I very rarely share them.  I’ve always hesitated to share them, as I’m by no means a writer, and these are hardly thought out, planned poems. Plus they’re personal and highly emotional (for me, at least). These are part of my “research” - re-reading, redacting and reconstructing small excerpts from my sketchbook pages (and where I get all of my titles).

  • Day 22 is Ghost.

I'm pretty sure I've told this story before but I had another experience with sleep paralysis recently so I figured I'd illustrate this recent event.

When I was younger I watched an A&E documentary on the paranormal, it focused on what they dubbed "entities" and sleep paralysis. 
Now I've always had a vivid imagination, often believing in the supernatural. As I grew older these beliefs have waned in favour of logical science based conclusions surrounding the paranormal, but it's still fun to imagine realms and concepts that exist outside the human experience. 
Believing in the paranormal, my mind made me believe my Cat, who was sleeping on my back, was actually an entity, nighthag, ghost, spirit or being who torments people when they sleep.

Experiences with them usually consist of people feeling suffocated, they feel a heavy weight crushing their chest and they're paralyzed by fear, unable to speak or move. 
In reality this is actually just sleep paralysis, a state where you think you're awake but actually sleeping. It usually happens while falling asleep or waking up. 
Anywho, that happened when I was a teenager and then never again until recently, and now you know a little more about me.
