Blue lips/blue veins/blue the color of our planet from far far away

If I'm going to be completely honest and say that I photoshopped this make-up on. I very very much want some electric blue lipstick like this. I saw it on Bianca of Kastor & Pollux in this post and again in this post and this post and I am in love with the affect of the blue lips. Blue lipstick is most definitely on my summer To Buy list (also included is black lipstick). 
But I digress. What's happening with my life at the moment? Well, see that really bulky ugly thing on my left foot? Yeah, that's my ankle brace which you'll probably be seeing a lot more of in the coming month. Another thing you should get used to seeing are these hand painted converse, as these are the only shoes I can get to fit my newly un-casted and thus swollen foot. 
Also my doctor informed me that I am not allowed to wear high heels! An abomination. Not that it's permanent, but even still, I'm going to miss my high heeled beauties.

Q2 hard work

Oh hey, I know I've been absent of late, but I was in Disneyland, then sleeping, then sleeping more, then teaching summer school, so it's been quite busy. Anyway, here's some photos of an outfit I wore before school got out.
Q2 is the aerobics studio my mom was working at when she met my dad. No, these photos are not mirrored, the shirt is printed backwards so that the wearer can see it forwards in the dance-studio's mirrors.

What have I been doing in my absence? Well, the obvious answer is basically nothing, but I'll give you a little insight in to what the past couple of weeks have yeilded:
 ^Collage I made to go with this playlist I made when I was upset. It's twiggy's face with a moon and octopus tenticles over the starry sky...I don't even know. These are my emotions. In physical form. I guess. 
 Double collars! I was like, "what's something that I haven't worn yet in my closet? UM NOTHING. I'VE WORN EVERY COMBINATION OF EVERYTHING I OWN. Lemme just cut up this shirt and make it into a collar. You know what's hip with the young folk these days? two collars."
I went thrift shopping to combat the lack of clothing that I haven't worn in my closet. People are all like "you have so many clothes" but I really don't have that many clothes at all. You can always have more clothes. 
 I won a thing! for my art prints. LOOK AT IT. There's a ribbon and shit. 
 Deathly hallows.
 Black and white pictures cuz that's how I roll.
 I drew my friend for art class, cuz her face is so prettay. so much blue. It's like her face, but wayyyy more saturated. 
Oh look, it's my cast. 
Oh look, it's me getting my cast off

Okay. That is all for now. I'm avoiding studying, but I'm not to the lack of motivation yet where I feel like I can write like 5 paragraphs, so I just wanted to put up some pictures and be like "hah. updated. I did something worth while" I also really wanted to update with something else but my camera is on the fritz so I couldn't perhaps tomorrow?
Byeeeeeee (said like Daily Grace)

Oh right, this whole blogging thing...

I'm sorry I've been so absent as of late, I've been super stressed in this fourth quarter, which is the worst time to have a ton of work, because at this time I am always BEYOND done with school and homework and all that shit LOVELY STUFF. As I write this I am avoiding studying for my history final and doing the four math assignments that I neglected to do when they were due. BUT I feel like my hiatus has been so long that I have almost forgotten how to do this whole blogging thing... 
So. Let's get to the point, shall we?
As I've talked about in this post, I have started this journal that I don't necessarily write in every day, but put something in everyday that gives insight to what I've done that day. Anyway, I've been super inspired by collage artists I found through tumblr on flickr. Like Ben Giles, and on tumblr I love 3xpat (she doesn't make these collages, but she always posts awesome inspiration stuff)
I've always made really complex collages where there's a million things going on at once, but I've recently realized the importance of simplicity as well. The above collages are the results of this experiment. 
Oh, also speaking of Flickr, I recently made a Flickr myself. 
And on that note, imma go do some math homework.
