  2. Flashback Friday: When I was a senior in high school I wore this shirt to school a lot. It’s a Marilyn Manson tour tee, on the back it read, 
“There’s a hole in our soul
that we fill with dope
and we’re feeling fine”
One day, during my office assistant duties in 3rd period, one of the older ladies in the office said I shouldn’t wear that shirt because I could be sent home. I was really hurt by this because 1) I didn’t want to get into any kind of trouble at all 2) I didn’t understand WHY, it was one little word 3) Was it that big a deal? Could my shirt really cause some sort of awakening in school and cause all the kids to start doing horrible things? 4) I was constantly having to defend my enjoying Marilyn Manson so this was another case of “here we go again”. I expected that at church, I didn’t want to hear it from some older ladies who were completely out of the loop, too. 

I stopped wearing the shirt only about a year or two ago because it became super holy (hehehe), this is a pic of the same shirt selling for $45 on Ebay. Now I can look back and go “Eh…maybe they were right but eh high school angst” but it’s also the little things like this that made me able to form cohesive thoughts and arguments on the spot instead of shriveling up, shutting down, and running away from confrontation of any kind. Now and days I am able to speak up for myself, my ideas, my likes/dislikes, etc. but it was a journey and a struggle for a long time. Just thinking about a time in my life where I was very expressive yet very repressed is a bit upsetting. I’m so glad I’m not that person anymore. From each confrontation, argument, and situation, inconsequential of random circumstance, location, or importance,  I became stronger.

  3. It’s finished, my painting (sprinkled in glitter) in Lauren’s memory is complete. Lauren passed away Sept. 20th 2014 after a car accident in Glendale, CA. 

www.facebook.com/rememberlauren

I painted her with her pink hair, a radiant heart, outstretched wings with her body held by unearthly hands. The music notes are from Rebel Rebel because that’s the song I think about when I think of she and David Bowie, who she loved. Her eyes are who different colors in tribute to Bowie and because, depending on the photo, her eyes were either very brown or very blue. “I’ll be dancing with you” will be a constant reminder of the times she and I danced at The Vigils shows, her looking fantastic and radiant, dancing some then stopping for a moment to snap photos, then go right back to dancing. 

Last we talked we chatted about life at the time and we ended with a hug and told her I was proud of her and her recent accomplishments and she always said wonderful things about my daughter. Seeing how well traveled, well learned in the ways of her work, and talented this young and ambitious woman is is an inspiration to me and I’m glad to know her. Even if I’d just met her this year she had a truly inexplicable way of leaving a mark, a glowing impression, and the undeniable sense of warmth and genuine character she possessed that made everyone around her want to know her.

We miss you, Lauren xoxo 1989-2014

I haven’t painted in years, I don’t know how to paint “the right way” but I’ve always enjoyed it, always. There’s something about the way watercolors take a different nature after their painted, something interesting how whatever was there got better. I was motivated by Lauren’s amazing beauty, talent, spirit, and love of music to create a piece to memorialize her by.

  4. I learned those bruises on my knees aren’t going to heal until I learn to walk again. Sure, the marks may still be there afterward but it’ll remind me of a time where getting by meant I wasn’t ready, of a time where I didn’t think I could be myself. I don’t want to get by. I want to strive to be more than I am. I want to *live*.

  7. OMGosh, I’m at the Minato buffet (which is a fancy Japanese buffet) with my 1 year old daughter, Soma, my dad, and Soma’s Abuelo (her father’s mother’s husband, keepin’ it complicated). Abuelo speaks Spanish only, I speak broken Spanish, my dad is fluent. Soma was getting ansy and likes to crawl on tables when we eat but we always tell her, “Soma, this isn’t that type of establishment, you can’t dance on the tables!”

    So she starts crawling on the table here and I meant to tell Abuelo “She likes to try to dance on the tables” but I said “She wants to dance on the tables” so he picked her up on the table and started dancing with her! My dad is kind of horrified, Abuelo and Soma are having a grand time laughing and dancing and I had to excuse myself because I was laughing so hard, I love this!

  8. I gave birth to a cartoon!!! My daughter, Soma, with a  Campbell’s soup kid and Petunia the Pig mash-up!

  9. These are empty Infamil formula canisters repainted and designed into tiki heads! My daughter, Soma, had a luau theme for her 1st birthday and her Godfather’s sisters, mom, and one of the sister’s boyfriend asked to help with the decorations. I gave them the empty cans, they let their imagination run wild!

  12. Flashback Friday! In honor of San Diego ComiCon, here is my mom’s old Super Friends lunchbox, copyright DC Comics Inc. 1976. It’s sturdy, has dimension, and super freaking awesome! They don’t make them like this anymore.

  13. One con-goers break-up post with Anime Expo
  14. I always look at people totally weird when they come up to me with unsolicited advice on how to lose weight and treat my acne. As if right away they assume I’ve never heard of face wash or smear fried chicken on my face. (Seriously, I’ve had people tell this to me) Yeah, I’m in my late 20s and my face is broken out almost all the time but that doesn’t mean I eat tons of grease/sugar/soda or that my face is dirty or that I haven’t tried everything I could afford to clear it up. And I do not wear a lot of makeup that covers the acne unless I’m performing/taking pictures because even the sensitive skin products make me break out, it’ll be a cycle of covering break outs. Since my face is is always a red color matching the rest of me it makes foundation shopping a nightmare. I needed three representatives from Mary Kay to help me with this problem.

    The weight thing I can change (on my own, for me, in my time) but the face, not so much. I enjoy my clearer days, I shrug off the bad days, and have come to terms with all of it. Most of the time I don’t feel too bad about my appearance cos I know I rock and when I’m down about my looks I still exude confidence, that’s all that matters.
