I've been meaning to mention for a couple months now that one of my patterns was published in Woodland Crochet by Kristen Rask. I believe it's a Barnes and Noble exclusive book, but I am not sure. I just wanted to share this with you all. Plus there are a lot of adorable patterns in the book that I'm so surprised that I was even included. 

And I will also apologize for my long hiatus. I should be getting back in action. I have a couple things to upload and hopefully I'll be adding a free pattern with one of the creations.

Hope you all having a lovely month and fantastic holidays.

I don't care how you do it, just stay, stay...

And yet again I find to much meaning in episodes of Smallville. Oh my life, and I have yet to actually read some Superman comics while I do now have a couple issues I need to find and read. Which will probably allow even more relatable moments...and in the future thirteen years I'll remember Superheros to be the ones who distracted me from my vapid state. Just for a couple minutes but enough to leave an distinct imprint. :shrug: Like any media that deeply impacted me.

You know, there are somedays where I wish I could be a damsel in distress waiting to be rescued but then I realize if I viewed like that more seriously then I'm am doomed to wait and allow life to pass me by. And for most of my life I'm am going to have to just relay on myself, sure I'll get help from friends when they come back, Whenever that may be. I do worry that I may become that really needy friend who everyone will dodge my calls and avoid my presence since I'm smother them with obnoxious-ness like a puppy who hasn't learned self control. At least I'll probably hold on to people to long. I already know I do that now with strangers haha...and hugging a stranger for to long I am assuming is a bad thing? Making them uncomfortable with my friendly-ness...the best weapon of mass destruction. Alas, poor Yorrick...you knew me better then any man could yet here I am...alone yet even with bright exterior I can not stay forever and once will return, who knows how. There I go with long winded monologues. Merely written to vent my internal expressions. Feelings are hard to convey due the fact they are felt and not read. You can read and perhaps figure out from the context what the tone may be. 

I wonder when I may fail and end. Being addicted to good feelings and vibes doesn't make one immune to destructive crashes, the ups and downs and we shall put it. The ups and downs with some just flat marks horizontal and not full of much meaning just return and the usual. The usual stuff. The usual faces. The usual times. :/

...I think not.

Actually it seems like life is just full of coincidences, but also our brain tends to make connections with abstract things. It's how we can see shapes or figures in the clouds when it's merely just a cloud. It just seems a lot of correlation from my memories and thoughts tend to influence my present and what happens. Although not in the ways I wish but just little things. Like lately I've been thinking a lot about Kingdom Hearts even though I still haven't even played any of the games, and I just realized they announced the newest mix or whatever it is called. :shrug: Just makes me think that I should probably play them haha. Then I think to myself that I want to play Age of Mythology a bit more since I have a huge hankering for nostalgia dose. Which oddly enough is the only Age of Empires game I really enjoyed but I think now that if I played any other versions of the franchise I'd deeply enjoy them since I'm a fascinated by past cultures/civilizations. Which often leads me to think I should pursue a career in anthropology or something...but I still think I should stick with a zoologist degree. Although I feel like both of those degrees get dumped on by people around me. Mostly the anthropology one though :XD:. But I do suppose it sounds cooler that I want to research animals that need to be better documented then to document long lost civilizations that we *sometimes* find, and probably loose quite a few to constructions of new buildings and such. Then there are just some that are so far in a dense forest that they are lost to time and people. XD But I don't think I'll be migrating to South America just for that :XD:. I'd rather immigrate to PNG. Since it just makes more sense to me plus I don't think I can learn Spanish to save my life, I have to much of a gringa accent. Besides PNG is always on my mind, it's not helped by the fact that my lanyard for my keys has Papua New Guinea written all over it, I take my bilum to work, and when I'm feeling lonely or just somewhat homesick I just throw on one of my meri-blouses and dance to myself quietly. And if I'm alone I'll sing parts of Meri Lewa to myself with my cracking voice haha. 

Anyways, I am often puzzled by how often I am relating to Smallville. Then again it's a pretty basic plot of anything can be relatable in the sense of a teenage drama...even if I'm not an alien I can still feel different from my peers and wish deeply that I could be like them but know that I can not...at least not to day. Maybe sometime in the future but the future looks sleek. Moment by moment the future is fine but looking down the long and winding road it just gets this gal down. Perhaps I am doomed just to have momentary delight but can't withstand a long term thing unless it has my death or other people's deaths in the balance haha. How selfish of me :/ . All I do know is that I felt rather stupid after watching an episode of Smallville and once it was over I just yelled to myself "I wish I was normal!". Then thought of myself as rather stupid since at least I don't have superpowers making me something "too different", but I guess I have the normal nice human skin which is nice? 

I also feel like adding that I have finally been able to play Goat Simulator since I bought it a few months back and it is quite fun although the controls are a bit hard for me...but that might be more that the desk for the keyboard is at an annoying angle. The game did induce a nightmare a couple nights ago, due to the human sacrifice I believe, I was being controlled by this demon. Tall black figure, bat wings, and red eyes...because my imagination is so original haha. It's such a horrible feeling being told what to do against your will and having little to no choices in your life. Haha, I sound like an angsty teenager :XD: ah how things don't change. But I guess I'm glad to say it wasn't that to horrible since my real nightmares wake me up with a pounding chest and mild hyperventilating. Those ones tend to feel so real, yet I know in the back of my mind they aren't real but I don't want to argue since there might be a chance it's real so I just miserably wait to wake up. 
There is one dream I wish I could have once more, it was such a random dream but the main subject of the dream is all that mattered. I got to hold his hand. I finally let myself reach out to him. I woke myself up just so that I could keep him from letting go only to inevitable let go of him. Yet I could still feel the warmth of his hand if it were real. :/ No quiera dejar ir? Mi no save. 

Ah! I also must add that I don't know how one could be a hermit. I'm barely living at the moment with my lack of friends yet somehow I'm still going...like a mindless drone...making no progress...I keep almost having something then it's just tumbles over like a game of Jenga. I do not want to live like this anymore.

Random memories

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 11:34 PM
... I'm sure I am not the only one that gets reminded by the most randomous things that trigger a memory that I don't often recall. (I do know that randomous is not a word but you know what I mean.) At work is the main source of my constant forgotten memories. Sometimes it's alright but other times I just sorta stand and look dumbfounded that I would forget some of the things I have. But I must remind myself that the human brain can contain so much information that it's common for things to be forgotten. 

One memory that has randomly come to surface was from prom night. Now prom wasn't amazing, nor did think it would be anything spectacular just took part in a social tradition while allowing my homeschool friend join me. But there was moment where I actually paid attention to my boyfriend at the time. (I honestly spent more time with my old girl friend then with my boyfriend since we never shared friends and he was being swarmed by his school friends while I wanted to make my friend who knew no one was kept entertained :). ) . But I didn't mean to dawdle on my old friend who I miss dearly, but about a just a random moment. A country song started playing, I didn't recognize it nor would I probably be able to recognize it today. All I do recall is that I think the name was Green Tractor or it at least talked about a tractor...Deer tractor? Who knows. But my boyfriend grabbed me from a conversation, which I then fell out of my chair since I didn't expect to be pulled out of my sit and didn't have my feet in my shoes anyways. But after adjusting myself got quickly walked to the dance floor. I remember being mildly confused why it was so urgent for me to be on the dance floor. Turns out there the guy did expect me to come with and thought he'd have to use some force to get me to dance haha. Now none of this is what I am really thinking about...I just somehow enjoy telling a story and giving details I don't really need to because I can. But while slow dancing to some very, very country song on a very, very packed dance floor and I saw a gay couple. It was two Hispanic guys. I just found them so adorable. I remembering thinking it was rather awesome that I am in a time period where anybody can love each other, and even enjoy music together even if most of the genre is rather "traditional" in it's topics. All I want is for people to be happy. 

I suppose that is one reason I'm rather friendly at work, but it's also that I'm just happy I can be able to talk to people. Even if it's for a brief second, I have the ability to interact with them and tend to try to make them smile or laugh. Although I do often wonder how many people, mostly guys, who take my friendlyness as flirting but I have no clue. I do know that there are a couple crushes on me...then again from what I've heard from my co-workers I am refereed to as the "hot one". Which I suppose is flattering but when you work with only 8 other people at a gas station... with 6 of them being girls, and only 1 other girl in her twenties...it's not hard to be called the "hot one". All I do know is as long as no one touches me or lays it on WAY to thick...I'm alright. And usually laugh it off in an akward i-hope-you-leave-and-don't-come-back-today sort of laugh. -_- Funny how girls are often told to behave in a sweet, mild manner. Smile no matter what; if they are tired, happy, sad, angry...just got to smile to put "people" at ease? I may be incorrect with that but it does feel like a common trait. 

OH! There is one other thing that's been on my noggin. There is one customer who comes in sometimes who has a lot of tattoos and I usually ask him about one each time I see him since he has plenty of tats which means plenty of explantation. I even just like hearing his thoughts on tattoos and such. I mentioned once that I wanted to get a matching tattoos with friends, (although not adding that I haven't seen these friends in over two years.) But when he was leaving he said went like "You better make super sure you want a matching tattoo...What might happen if you stop being that person's friend?" and my only thought and explanation is "Even if I may not be in their lives anymore, they have impacted my life greatly. I would not be the person I am today without them." He just smiled and nodded his head in understatement. :shrug:

Plus that it is a tattoo I've thought about for many years. I remember trying to think if I ever got a tattoo, what would it be of? And I had thoughts but I know plenty of the things I thought of were things I probably don't even watch or read anymore. But the date of the day I met my bestfriend with my other friends just seems perfect. Now I could either have the date in Roman Numerals or go a bit more "different" and use another number system. Like Mayan or even Elvish..or Dwarfish (Cirth.)  Elvish would be perfect XD . Although I did have an idea of having my name in Elvish be a different tattoo but I really think I'd prefer a strong quote or something over my name since I could never say it correctly haha. I now I have more things to think on. But the one thing I need to know most is, what is that damn date? 

Anywhoo, sorry for talking/texting your ear of. Just things that go through my mind.

Let me tell you an odd story,

There once was a couple who both were dread heads. They weren't always dread heads. Nor did they have dreads because they wanted to look like each other. They had both chosen to have dreads for their own personal reasons. Now I don't know if you knew but back in the day, in the time of courting and long distant relationships being communicated solely through  letters. Women would give men locks of their hair, so would have a keepsake and carry a piece of their loved one with them. Although in this day in age it would probably be seen as unhygienic, or a bit distasteful. It's just what they did in them old-n-days.

Now back to this nameless couple.

To follow in the footsteps of old traditions while putting a new age spin on it they hacked of one of their dreads and gave it to the other. Instead of keeping a piece of hair in a locket of sorts, they had the ability to re-attached it to their own head. Like some sort of freaky Frankenstein hair-do. At least this way they wouldn't have to put themselves under a dangerous surgery or have to give the other an internal organ. Many people found this to be incredibly bizarre, and often people found this act to be disgusting. (Not only because it was dreadlocks but it was ANOTHER person's hair.) Now this statement doesn't make to much sense when you think about wigs and weaves made out of human hair. Or look back to the idea of having someone's innards inside of you.

The lesson of this story, I suppose.

Is that it doesn't matter what is the most common idea of social norms, but if you want to share a part of you with another, do it. Unashamed and proud. Show off that piece that wasn't always a part of you but now can't be taken from you. Love it and enjoy it. This time we have with another. Even if it was for only a moment. Besides there will always be a person who will disagree with you, but try to keep in mind that the world would be painfully dull if we were all yes men. ;)
Tangled within each other
Just a small thought I had. I wonder who has ever shared a dread before. It sounds like an amazing idea. Defiantly something I would probably try to do once I have dreads :XD: (Although to think how many people would agree with me since I don't think everyone would be so fond of cutting their dreads, and to just reattach it with a foreign hair fibers :XD:.) 

UGH! This idea just makes me want to get dreads even more...I am So debating on just saying "SCREW EVEN-NESS" and take a whirl at doing my own dreads by myself with no help...but the thought of having someone help create my dreads just makes me all happy and giddy. Ugh! CONFLICTING FEELINGS, Why you got to be bickering?

Hello artists and admirers, or whatever you may be. Welcome to my humble deviant-art. I don't think I am that fascinating but I shall give brief "bio" to abide social norms. I'm a female crochet,knitting, felting machine...human technically..but machine sounded cooler. I am big fan of science fiction and fantasy. I adore most animals and probably the main root of why I crochet them since they are amazing. I hope to bring lesser known animals to light to help share knowledge on them. But also cute things are nice! Personally I would like to think of my self as an intellectual but I will probably also be seen as a fool or at least an empty headed. I'm an old soul and very old fashioned in my views on life and society. I would love world peace to be a real thing but unsure how that would come about. Humans are way to complex for my little brain.
Anyways, stick up a conversation or just comment or give criticism. They are all welcomed :D
