Die For You

I find that music is the best inspiration for art. This drawing was most definitely inspired by The Weekend.

This past year for me has been all about Frank Ocean, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, and Childish Gambino. Just seeing all those names in the same sentence brings great joy to me. Happy drawing and music listening, y’all.

Cheers, friends. Ttyl.

classic crushed cola

where would we be if coca-cola did not exit ? it is a classic even when it is crushed and tossed in the recycling bin . i fished this can out of the recycling bin of my local supermarket . the owner looked at me suspiciously . and i wonder if she ever thinks about how much waste we create and judges our generation

Advocacy for Cute Rabbits (aka all of them)

What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I volunteer at a local rabbit shelter, and I love (love love) rabbits and other animals. I am not usually an advocacy person, nor do I like making speeches and getting into heated debates. However, I feel the need to address the mistreatment of rabbits, especially pet rabbits.

Please be well informed and educated before getting a pet rabbit, or any other pet.

At the shelter, we witness only a fraction of animal abuse and neglect that occurs locally. Mistreatment may range from ignorance, carelessness, neglect, to malice. Sometimes harm may be done to pet rabbits unintentionally, such as insufficient income to support a healthy rabbit diet. In those cases, the best solution is to amend the problems if possible, to surrender the rabbits to a shelter, or to euthanize the rabbits in very serious cases.

Please, please, please educate yourself before getting yourself a pet rabbit or any other pet. Keep in mind the span of your commitment and the animal’s life span, the proper diet, the amount of compassion and care you are willing to offer, and the expenses.

Some people don’t value animal well being and welfare as much as me; my advocacy may seem pointless to those but I think a real compassionate and kind person treats all lives fairly.  Compassion may come in many forms: surrendering pets, adopting animals, or even not adopting. If you can’t provide the sufficient care for a pet, the best thing is not to get one. Try volunteering at an animal shelter instead (like me haha).

Be kind. Be educated. And if you are a pet owner, you also need to be responsible for taking whatever action that best suits your animal.

Thank you for reading! I am thinking about starting a weekly series about the rabbits at the shelter? But I don’t want to make a commitment yet because I just got a job. What a hectic schedule I have subjected myself to. Haha, but being busy is good for me. Anyways…

Ttyl, internet friends. (If you actually cared to read this lengthy post I can call you a friend right?)

Inferiority Complex

Inspired by J.D. Salinger’s novel, The Catcher in the Rye. Ink + photography. Edited with Inkscape. 2016.

Inferiority complex is the state of feeling unnecessarily subordinate to others. Aggressive behaviour is often associated with this complex in retaliation.

For example, you may feel inferior to your peers, who have designer bags and shoes, albeit you attend the same school and do the same things.

It is just another part of growing up, feeling unrealistically inferior to others because you keep comparing yourself to others.

You have to believe in your abilities and have confidence in yourself. Halt the rubbish of comparing yourself to others to make yourself feel better or worse. Your self value should not be obtained from external factors, instead it should be obtained from your skills, achievements, and milestones. Once you realize this, you will feel productive and be on top of the world!

Note: I did not intend to make this post a prep talk, but I guess I sort of needed one today. The words just spewed out. Does anyone else do this?!

Bye for now!

 

 

 

Sweet Dreams

School is starting soon, and I just want to wish my fellow classmates a good senior year. It’s our last year before starting a new chapter in our lives, so embrace every moment and live for every opportunity. And sweet dreams because we aren’t going to be getting a lot of zzz’s. May the chances we get to slumber be sweet, not terror inducing.

Bye for now. And good luck!
