Hi and welcome to my first blog post. I have time traveled here from 1990 and discovered that members of my species publish their darkest thoughts to strangers instead of keeping them to themselves. Just kidding. I’m a normal 21st-century sad person just like you.

Back in college (< 1 year ago) I made this website to display some of my accomplishments, and now I’ve decided to supplement my website with a personal blog. I don’t think anyone really likes personal blogs except for the person writing them, but the Instagram-famous/Wordpress-famous (is that a thing) would tell me I am wrong. I have chosen a probably cliché title theme, so each one will begin with a hashtag.

I graduated from college last year and I am now living my best life (?) working remotely at home, hoping to move out eventually, emphasis on the eventually. I’ve spent the past few months trying to discover the best path for me to take in life and that’s been difficult/virtually impossible but one thing I did discover is that I enjoy drawing, which I feel makes me sound like a 3-year-old. BUT I enjoy drawing and I always have and maybe I should have studied Design, but hey, I chose English instead, and now I don’t really like reading for fun. But here on this blog you can expect to see my finished a r t.

I’m starting with part one of a Katy Perry series, which is not meant to be ironic, nor is it meant to be a confession of my love for Katy Perry. I just really like the song “Firework.” And I think plastic bags are funny.


A few facts about me:

  • I’m almost 23
  • I like comedy podcasts
  • I love TV (see the whole ‘don’t love reading for fun anymore’ thing above)
  • My mom died in 2015
    • So expect kind of a lot of grief/death art
  • Here’s my Instagram with more art/works in progress.

Thanks for visiting!
