Pain grows into creativity
 Lost in a world of chaos and pain,
My emotions switch from day to day,
One day I am happy and confident,
The next I want to curl up into a ball and cry,
Fear surrounds me,
Pain engulfs me, 
Memories haunt me.
I wish I could let go of all this pain inside,
And live a normal life,
But what is normal anyways,
What is the way it is suppose to be,
Really is there such thing as normality.
 Accepting who I am is important,
And using my strengths to succeed,
And learning to work on my weaknesses.
If life was easy and happy all the time,
We wouldn't know what happiness was,
Because we would have nothing to compare it too.
With extreme pain also comes happiness,
Because I am suddenly more grateful for the little things. 
I may never be what society expects of me,
But that is ok because I don't need to be,
I am unique and eccentric,
I am an artist and a writer,
I may think differently then other people,
But that makes it easier for me to be creative.
I notice the details that

Letting go of control...
It sit here watching the time go by not wanting to go to sleep but just sit here in the silence reflecting on another day.  Tomorrow is a huge day a day I've been waiting for but also a day of fear. I do not know what will happen or what the future brings but I do know that I have it within me to overcome any obstacle that is put in my way. One day at a time is all I can do, one moment at a time on some days too.  The more I let go the more I see that trying to control  doesn't help me. Let go and let God is what they say, it is hard to do but when I do I'm amazed at what comes my why.  3 months ago I never would have thought I would be where I am today.  I finally found hope and I know its because I have let go and began to create. Creativity is my life it's how I survive.  Life may be hard at time but I don't mind because I never would have got to this place  if I didn't go through pain.

1000 anatomy sketches challenge
:new: The challenge ends in 2016
This doesn't mean you can't draw sketches for the challenge anymore after January 1st 2016, it just means i will stop giving points. You can start and finish the challenge whenever you want :D:new:
Hello and happy holidays everyone! :rudolph:
Since the new year is approaching rapidly, and my mind was on new years resolutions, i thought up a challenge for myself to improve my anatomy. And it would be boring to do it alone so i invite you all to join me. :la:
Here's how the challenge goes:
1. The goal is to reach 1000 anatomy related drawings as fast as possible. There is no deadline.
2. You don't have to start in 2015, you can start now.
3. Comment on this journal with a link to the drawings you made for this challenge. I will keep an eye on this journal and if you comment anywhere else i might not find your comment. Don't link me in a reply though, my reply stack is chaos, you wouldn't want your comment to get mixed up th

I have been interested in art since I was a kid but recently have started to get obsessed with it. I have a degree in sociology and psychology and am going to add a Studio Art Major starting in Jan 2015. My long term plan is to get the Studio Art courses I need and then Apply for MA in Art Therapy at Concordia University. Art is a huge stress reliever for me and I found once I let go of my perfectionism and just started to be creative I was having fun and work turned out better. Art has really helped me with my own emotional issues and I hope to inspire others to use art as a way to help them get through there struggles of life in a healthy way. :)

 Back at school takes up a lot of my time. Though I love my courses.  I can't believe I'm over half way through the semester it seemed to go so fast.  I will try to post pictures of some of my school projects later but will wait till get stuff marked.   Currently I am working a painting assignment which involves distorting pictures of babies ( yes that's pretty deviant I would think)  and painting it. I had the critique  and one painting the TA said to keep as is I felt so good and the other two just need to change slightly. It's due on Thurs. For my other course I have a video art project  making art with video and making a documented intervention of a space on campus.  My plan is to  bring a yoga mat (cause there's snow and its cold it looks cool) and sit on it pretty to meditate in middle of busy areas and video type it.  We have to draw a storyboard for what we are doing. I have someone else interested in buying my art but in the process of negotiating.   Well I have to head to class soon don't want to miss art class by being on the deviant art website. I'm deciding courses for the fall. At this point planning on taking Drawing I, Painting I, Visual Art today (Art history) and  Introduction to Art theory and Criticism.  I had an interview today for a peer helper (volunteer/professional like role)  position for the fall.  I have another interview on Wednesday.  The interview today was for local engagement and the other on Wednesday is for Diversity and Human rights office.  Ok I really need to head to class now. :)
