Heads up: I’m doing very poorly brain-wise again. I’ve been spiraling back into levels of anxiety that make it difficult to function for a while now. Unfortunately, that seems to have set off some old depressive thought patterns, which means I might end up in really bad shape here very quickly.

I don’t intend to delete this blog (in fact, I hope to update with more drawings this weekend)! However, I feel like I have to warn people that there is a chance I might post things related to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and suicidal ideation in the coming weeks. Mind you, I don’t INTEND to post about any of that stuff! But if past behavior is any indication, it’s probable that I might reach out in desperation and post anyway if things get bad enough.

I absolutely do not want my problems to have a negative influence on any of you, so please don’t hesitate to unfollow me if you think that’s for the best. I know read mores, Tumblr savior, and xkit don’t work on Tumblr mobile, and I really, REALLY don’t want to trigger anyone accidentally.

Now, I have made it a habit to always tag my posts, so you can count on me to keep up that behavior. If there are specific tags you want me to use so you can avoid any potential posts, please let me know.

Again, I don’t anticipate posting anything. I usually just sort of… “go dark” and pull away from social interaction. But I want to take precautions to make sure you guys stay safe no matter what I end up doing to myself.

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

I’ve watched Leverage all the way through at least four times and I don’t remember Parker and Hardison Spiderman-kissing once which is a crime

Cinnamon “Cinnabon” Cake!

So, it turns out that when you’re an adult, you’re allowed to cook whatever you want - no matter how much sugar goes in it - and no one can stop you. Amazing.

And yes, my whole house smells like a Cinnabon right now. I can only assume this is what the saints were imagining when they wrote about heaven.

Sorry to say, but my brain hasn’t been doing so well lately. =/

So, I’m taking a little Tumblr vacation to get my anxiety under control!

You can still email/tweet/text/skype me or whatever if you want, I’m just taking a week off from the Tumbies.

HEY WRITER FRIENDS
there’s this amazing site called realtimeboardwhich is like a whiteboard where you can plan and draw webs and family trees and timelines and all that sort of stuff. you can also insert videos, documents, photos, and lots of other things. you can put notes and post-its and, best of all, you can invite other people to be on the board with you and edit together!! 
this is really really awesome and a great tool for novel planning, so if you’re doing nanowrimo…. this could be good for you!!

Thanks for everyone who sent me a link! This was totally the thing I was thinking of. (Now lets see if I can actually get the story in my brain to form words on a page!)

Question!

I saw a post floating around a while back with a link to some kind of non-linear story-planning software. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?

It looked like a sort of visual brainstorming/concept thing and now I can’t find it.

I’m no writer by any means, but there are a few stories that won’t leave me alone lately and I’d like to take a crack at them. Something that would let me organize my thoughts visually, but not be forced to write them down by hand would be really useful. <3
