this is the award i received from the lovely little twinkle magpies for the contest i won

Ms. Anna, you have been one of the winners of my contest♥

Now what needs to happen:
1) contact me on my email so i can know where to send the peice of my life

2)once you recieve the item, contact me to let me know

3)have this contest of your own and so you can send out a part of your life to someone

4) don't forget to use the original box that my item comes in to send to one person. And tell them that, so we can have a chain of the same box

♥thank you so much dear, i hope you like what you get!

p.s. go to my latest post to get the blog award and copy it to your blog!

so that's the general idea. i have decided to add a little something however. not only will the winner receive the box that twinkle magpies sent me full of lovely things... but also a vintageveggie box full of more lovely things! so double the fun. my hope is that the chain of boxes will continue to grow as each blogger sends on the boxes they received as well as one they made themselves!

so, to enter the contest all you have to do is comment on the post with a story about the most special thing anyone has ever done for you and some way to contact you if you win. the contest will end two weeks from today on Tuesday October 6th. good luck! i can't wait to hear everyone's stories!

i got you babe

things have gotten so muddled. i have too much of what i don't want and not enough of what i do. but i keep plowing through all of it. classes seem to go round and round. some things i love. some things i hate.

this: i hate
benjamin edwards (had to write a paper on this guy and make a piece of digital art emulating him)

(some required)
yeah i believe that...
but some current memories might not even be worth it.
i can't tell if the things i do are always the same, or always different.
i want to experience new things
but i don't always know how.
(here comes the sun)

and as my heart ran around

i'm home. like home home. durham. it feels safe and normal but almost more difficult. maybe too much of the same. like a backtrack. but certainly good in some ways. and certainly bad. i keep telling myself that i won't except anything out of anything that way i stop getting disappointed. but it never works. things never go according to plan. they are never as good as i want them to be. and most of the time, i feel like it is my fault.
in school i've been working with line.
these inspired me.
also in school, i have more fun, because i don't know anyone well enough yet to expect anything out of them.
when i'm there, i don't have to hide.
when i'm home, there are certainly good things, but everything feels like it is: old and drawn out.

sorry about the negativity? i really am happy right now.
