And here is the Dorkasaurus in its natural habitat. ((Someone tried to climb the statue after we snapped this pic and they got yelled at by a security guard who was curiously quiet while was I making a scene just a moment before.))

Never give up on yourself. Never give up on the people you love. Never give up on the people who love you, but know when to follow your instincts. Know when to let go.

Breaking up with my partner, pursuing my well being, and being thankful for every moment we shared, even when we were no longer together was surprisingly the best way to mend our relationship.

((I guess this blog is becoming a self-advising column for relationships))

Nothing beats a morning breakfast cleanse smoothie! 3 ripe, speckled bananas, 3 medjool dates, 1 cup coconut milk, and some cacao nibs. Blend and enjoy!

Also, he messaged me today to tell me how much he enjoyed his bento-style lunch that I prepared for him.

My fiance turned in his two week notice at work yesterday. His boss asked him why he wanted to quit, and he said, “Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. I love what I do, but I’m a sensitive guy and you’re pretty harsh. I don’t think we can have a healthy relationship.”

His boss was shocked and told him he was brilliant. He asked him to stay, and promised to double his pay in the next few months. I think it was the first time anyone of his employees had talked to him like that. 

My fiance’s come a long way in the past 8 years we’ve been together. In the beginning, he didn’t really know how to communicate. If he didn’t like something, he’d shut down immediately; sometimes for weeks. With certain people, his grudges would last for years, even. But in the past few years, thanks to my guidance and (possibly irritating) persistence, he’s learned to open up and voice his concerns in a healthy manner. I’m proud of my man.

Things that cloud my creative mind:

- if I don’t sleep well
- if I don’t eat well
- if I don’t move and stretch
- if I don’t orgasm

You will never be “that other girl.” Work with what you’ve got. You may surprise yourself.

Also, I applied to LACC today (community college). It’s very likely that I’m going back to school again since 2010 (whoa, it’s been nearly 4 years???), this time for art. Finally.

no1967:

If you are going down a path you do not want for yourself, the sooner you choose to turn around the better—and easier. The longer you continue, the farther you go; the farther you go, the longer it takes to turn around.
