I’m Still Here 

I haven’t written in a while. I’ve been too preoccupied with life at the moment.. Not sure if that’s good or bad really at this point in my life. Things have gone great, things have gone sour, things have gone amazing. It all depends on the day you catch me on and what I’m doing unfortunately. Sometimes I feel like I just can’t win either way, but that doesn’t matter to anyone. 

A little update – I had my first art show at The Steamtown Mall last night for the Steamtown Market. I guess it was a success. I had many friends there to support me and so many stayed with me, but I didn’t sell much or as much as I wanted to at least. Maybe one day I’ll get there. I got a lot of “Wow, you’re really talented.” And “Wow those look great, you have a good eye.” But I only sold maybe 3-4 things. Didn’t make a profit really after all I spent to go into this. But there’s hope and more chances in the future. Here’s a couple photos from the night – my stand looked alright. It could have been better and bigger like everyone else’s there but it just wasn’t since this was my first show. 


Anyway – I’m off to NJ tomorrow to visit my mom for Mother’s Day and I hope I don’t fall asleep from being so tired after this weekend. I never get a day to rest not to mention I don’t want to go to work Monday again either. I don’t think this is the job for me. Also, I have to mention, no one from my work showed up Friday night, even though we work 3 BLOCKS from the mall. That really upset me. I guess they’re just “too busy” to stop by but yet can stop at each other’s things when they have an event. Thanks for making me feel part of the team, team. *Sarcasm*

Quick post – it’s 1am and I have to be up early. This is the first night I’m also staying at my house on a Saturday and it feels weird. But oh well. Can’t win em all. 

Cheers,

The Foam at The Top

So I took some new pictures recently at Georgetown Deli and Beer Store in Wilkes Barre, PA and wanted to share them with you.

Who doesn’t like a good brew some days? Everyone needs something after a long week of work and losing an hour of sleep today. I was able to go to King of Prussia this weekend and IKEA to get some new things for the apartment next door that I needed and we stopped at the Rock Bottom Brewery as well and that place was probably the best place I have been for food in a very long time – lunch was also only $30 for two people and food and drinks. That’s perfect. It sucks we’re not closer to the place, but for now we’ll make it a point to go down there whenever we go to IKEA or KOP Mall.

Overall, this weekend was awesome and I was able to get a few things I wanted at IKEA. Not all of it unfortunately, but I’ll be going back in like a month to get the wardrobe I need for my room so I’m excited for that. It wouldn’t fit in my car. I need a bigger car. I’m tempted to get a larger car next year if I’m able to save up a little bit and can trade mine in also. Im thinking small SUV or jeep or something like that. Nothing “mom” though. I hate that. I don’t plan on kids so I don’t want a “mom car” at all. Just something larger and classier and so I can fit more stuff in.

Anyway, off to sleep early tonight. I lost an hour of sleep and didn’t get to sleep until 4am this morning and I regret it majorly. I’m so tired.

More later.

Cheers,

Cabin in the Woods

Demention

‘There is an area of the mind that could be called unsane, beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there’s insanity. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity.’

Well there it is peeps. That’s where I got my name from. Have any of you ever heard of the acid trip band called Hallucinogen? Well, now you have and you’re welcome.

They are rad and I remember listening to this when I was in high school just sitting there thinking, “Wow, who ever wrote this must have been on some pretty rad drugs that I’ll never take so I have to live vicariously through them for the time being.” And so I did. This is where my name came from and I don’t think there is an actual video for the song but just listen to what I have below. Just pretend you are on acid – or if you are, even better for you because this beat is very different and amazing. They only have a few songs from what I can tell but man did the lyrics make sense to me.

It’s a Friday night and I’m sitting here just browsing the internet because people think they need to tell me how to live my life recently and I’m just getting plain sick of it. I’m sorry, I need to take my lynch when? Oh okay, so I’m not even allowed to pick it any more? I have to go when other people go because you said so? Okay, yeah that’s cool. Stop the micro-managing and we’ll all be a bit happier I think. I know it doesn’t come from you but if you’re not the one with the actual problem with me then leave it alone. I will not be told to do something I’m uncomfortable with and I most certainly will not do it with you yelling at me telling me I have to. That’s not how I work. Sorry.

That there are doors that they are afraid to go in
And they don’t want us to go in there either
Because if we go in there we might learn something
That they don’t know
And that makes us a little out of their control

I’ve been reading a lot lately. A lot of books that I haven’t read before and a lot of books that I have actually read before. Divining the Future is an amazing book that I came across in the New Age section of Barnes and Nobles a few years ago and it’s amazing and talks all about spirituality. Not that I really am into that stuff, but I think a lot of the quotes and things in there might be useful for helping me de-stress from this job and other things in my life like my money situation I’m currently in. I need something to help me with that because right now, nothing else is helping and I don’t know what to do. So I’m reading this book to see how to not be so stressed with every single thing I do in life these days. So far so good, I still have a lot to go though since it’s a long book.

I’m going to lead you, kicking and screaming, giggling and laughing, into the future. I’m going to relax you, I’m going to get you! A spiritually cleansing derangment of the senses. The happy choas out of witch enlightment might come. Oh no that was real, lets get out of here.

Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on enough for the night. I hope you guys enjoy my new layout I just re-did again. I really love how WordPress is coming out with more and more free options for us basic users and more customizations. Finally. I remember when I had stated this there weren’t that many and now there are over 4 dozen free options with more that just keep on coming. So thank you, WordPress.
Cheers,

HelloThereFriends

Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt

Well I’ve been running from something.. Twenty years in my car – Down a road that’s leading me nowhere. Yeah we drive through the farmland & no one knows where we’re from. Could I kiss you and make you a queen? Or something in between? 

Do you want to see it? The place where I am free? ❤️

The place that makes me happy, the place that I can go to and feel at home no matter what is going on in my life to make me feel like this. 

The place where I feel safe and hidden from everything else in the world. 

Well, right now it’s late. Maybe tomorrow when I’m more awake and conscious will be the best time to show you where I feel free and happiest. 

I’ve been feeling really emotional as of late –  listening to Augustana and a bunch of older bands I used to listen to like Dashboard Confessional, Eve 6 and The Goo Goo Dolls. Totally worth it though. I forgot how amazing and meaningful music can be because of how it is today. Sometimes you just need “good music.”  And no, not Kanye’s “good music” because we all know that’s what he calls it. 

It’s Monday night and I’m tired as anything. I can’t believe it’s February already. Of 2016. Where is the time going? It feels just like yesterday that I was living on campus at Kutztown.. And it was 5 years ago now. I moved here in August of 2011, so this August will be my 5th year here in PA and I’ll be 26 in September. 26. Holy shit I’m getting up there. And I have still yet to be financially stable or find a place to actually call “home.” 

Time for some pictures? Sure. Have some new photography taken recently. Not all of it is with my iPhone this time believe it or not lol. Look how pissed Romeow looks though in this photo from the vet. Ironically he didn’t have a problem and loved the vet like always. The lighting was just perfect and I got the perfect shot of him. 

  
    
 
It’s late now and I’m exhausted. I think it’s bedtime for me believe it or not. You know you’re old or getting old when 9:30 pm is beginning to look like bed. I’m only 25. Damnit.

Cheers,
