I’m gloomy today.

I wanted to update every day this week (probably not going to) so here’s an update to say that people, my life and the world in general seem to suck. Trying to type up a more elaborate reason on word which I might post tomorrow but is probably just going to end up deleting like always. I wanted to have this part in small font so people could ignore it but I can’t find where I should click.

If I could sew this is what I would sew.

More of similar stuff can be found here and at my photobucket.

Repost for some, but I find it worth reposting. I bet when Gaga sees this she’s going to curse herself for not thinking of it sooner (or if you’re more cynically inclined, she’ll be thrilled and make a rip-off in 3 days).

Digital art.

The concept is the essence of the human race being sold as a perfume. I think the most important things in this drawing are the different details. The model in the ad symbolizes hypocrisy. She’s a satire of award show celebrities, a beautiful woman who is at first glance publicly promoting charities (animal rights, ending wars, giving money to third world countries) but looking closer she’s wearing fur (the fox), her clothes are made by workers in sweatshops and her jewellery symbolizes blood diamonds. She’s representing people who put up a façade of virtues while being unwilling to give up the luxury that depends on other people’s suffering.

It’s a cynical piece which focuses on the negative sides of humans. It mocks the definition of “have humanity” and “be humane”.

There’s something slightly self-destructive about my mind. I feel fine when I have things to do, occasionally a bit restless, but fine. But as soon as I have a couple of days without plans I start going mad. I feel like my brain is against me, because I start brooding over all the issues in my life. These are issues I deal with every day and on an ordinary day I can cope with everything, so there’s no reason for me to keep thinking about them and bringing myself down. I know that my life is better now than it was a couple of years ago, but I start obsessing about my worries, fears and angers and then I can’t let go no matter how hard I try to distract myself. Feels like someone’s grabbing a hold of my intestines and twisting them around, very nice! Not. To make it worse, I met an absolutely horrible person when I was out shopping. I’m 100% sure she was trying hard to be intentionally mean and rude to me. I can’t believe a person in their 50-60 doesn’t know better than to be a complete asshole to random strangers in a supermarket, it’s really sad.

It made me even more depressed for about 15 minutes, then I got over it and did some therapy shopping. I bought some glue for my art, some different beauty creams for my body and a optical mouse for my computer. I also took a break at a coffee shop and got some coffee and something sweet to eat. I don’t comfort eat, but I know from experience that when I’m hungry and tired I can get really sad for no reason, and it usually gets better once I eat something.

I’m still a bit annoyed, but all in all I feel a lot better now. I’m running a disc cleanup on my old stationary computer, so it’ll speed up enough so that I can play the Sims 3 again, and maybe even install Sims Medival? I don’t know whether Sims medival is an expansionpack to Sims 3, though. Maybe this won’t be a wasted Saturday after all. 😛

I need inspiration for my newest school project. Our assignment is to make a material that can be used in  treatment of people who use supporting sign language. This means coming up with a material and then finding signs that fit it. Supporting sign language is a bit different from ordinary sign language, and the target users of the material probably has mental handicaps, so I can’t make anything too complicated. I thought about making a list of signs used by gaming nerds because it would be fun, but I’ve more or less scratched that idea. I don’t know if there is a sign for “pwned”, “troll”, “fail” etc  and I’m not a gaming nerd so I wouldn’t know what words to use to begin with. It’s also not very useful in treatment and stuff like “pwned” is usually written anyhow. If you got any fun ideas, I’m all ears. 🙂

Hope everyone’s having a better Saturday than me.
I have a chocolate bar in the kitchen to cheer me up, though.

I’m looking forward to a calm weekend, even if I have to study. Since I got back from the field visit today I’ve stayed up in the apartment, taken a nap, ordered pizza and watched TV. I was only home for an hour or two yesterday, because I had a dentist appointment after school . I didn’t have any cavities but apparently I grate my teeth when I sleep, and a night guard would cost 3000kr/$470/£290. If my jaw problems doesn’t go away I might have to buy it. Anyhow, because I came home late I didn’t have a chance to buy beers to bring to the party I was going to, and I didn’t have anything to use to dilute my alcohol. I put some Barcardi rum in a plastic bottle with the intention to not drink too much since I had to get up at 8am for the field trip I wrote about in my previous post. That plan didn’t really work that well. I had a lot of fun and got free drinks because I returned some glasses (it’s a system they have at college parties. 3 glasses = free beer or cider. 4 glasses = free drink. You can also trade the glasses for money instead). I found and returned over 10 glasses. I only spent 30kr(~£3/$4½) of my own money during the entire night. I may party hard but I party economically.

I got home after 3 am. Felt like crap when I woke up this morning, but since I didn’t want to miss the field trip staying home wasn’t an option. I managed to pull myself together and get there and then back home again before lunch time. The rest of the day has been spent in a very lazy way, not cooking meals and falling asleep in my clothes. I ordered home-delivered pizza for the first time, something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. It was very comfortable and delicious, but too expensive to become a habit. I was supposed to meet a friend and play trivia games, but I think I killed too many brain cells to do that.

Finished two drawings this week as well. The second one is intended as a T-shirt print but I’m not sure if it works.
