So I’m sitting outside the mall waiting for my aunt and my cousin and about 45 mins into waiting a car pulls up and honks and the back window rolls down and the teenage boy yells “get off the phone” so I’m like “oh I didn’t know both my cousins were coming” and I start walking to to the car and I’m like 3ft away when I notice he has his hands up like “stop” and I’m like… “That’s not my cousin, that’s not my aunt driving” and then I realize I don’t even know what their car looks like! LMAO!!! I couldn’t even play that crap off. I went right back to the bench and sat and laughed to myself and I looked up and saw the boys were laughing too! Lmao! Poor me.
HOPE VS FAITH
Hope and faith are actually NOT the same. Hope is often the ego panting for the next thing, eager to be fulfilled. Banging its cup on the cage door. And then sinking back into despair.. if it has to wait.
But faith is so VERY different. It’s knowing that what is meant for you will always, always come. Trusting that you can never miss your Destiny. Knowing that you can take a deep breath, align with the Highest and what is meant to be… will always Be.
Faith knows you will be shown the Right Actions at the Right Time.
The needed doors WILL open.
And Faith can be honestly be LEARNED AND REQUESTED.
It can be prayed for. I’ll say during times of great, great change like now, “LET ME TRUST YOU! This entire situation now is released into Your hands. Show me the way. Guide my every step. Let me relax and honor my instincts….”
And then Faith lifts you on Its shoulders like a prizefighter through ANY transition.
You can literally feel the Hand of the Divine carrying you and making clear the path.
Change me Beloved into One filled with faith. Let me trust that You know exactly how to guide me. Let me relax and know that the right actions will be shown and I can follow them with a courageous, grateful heart.
The perfect solutions are already selected and my own body and instincts will show the way.
I am Yours
You are Mine
We are One.
All is well.
ah this is my life right now. i totally get you. and it’s so weird. i’m just trying to be patient and do what i can. but not knowing for how this will go on is kinda crazy and terrifying sometimes.
yea and like this has been life for almost 3yrs… i know my experience may make me seem over the place but when i break it down it makes sense to my journey but its like “WHY WONT SOMEONE TAKE A CHANCE ON ME?!” (a paid chance)… Jesus be your/our support system! and im a little sad cause this place was so interesting and exciting and i could actually see myself working there, with children and giving workshops about cameras and animations and technology and it just feels like a big ol’ “Nope”
that’s exactly how i feel. it’s so discouraging not getting those jobs that seem so interesting and fitting. i also have random experience, but i do think it ties together. and all this time wanting this and waiting has actually made me look forward to waking up early and doing the work thing. like i actually have all this pent up energy, and i’m dying to use in my work thing. i keep myself busy with projects, but i think that having things that are outside of myself (and gimme money) would be really good for me right now. so hell yeah, i think we need to get the chance soon. i demand it
not so random blurb but…
“Although your skill set and work experience are impressive, we have offered the position to a candidate who is a closer match for the position”
Like I’m so over looking for a job right now. Since January I have been getting emails like this….
yo this is hella flattering. thank you! for a second this question was really overwhelming but my teacherness will kick in with these tips.
- Everyone can draw and art is subjective. Let’s get that straight. Art is a combination of skill and creativity (and other things) and those 2 balance out in different ways.
- Be kind to yourself and have the courage to make ‘mistakes’
- If you’re starting out, take 5, 10, 20 minutes and a pick something(s) to draw. Practice discipline. You can even draw the same thing twice. one day draw it for 10 minutes and then the next, Draw it for 30 minutes. There are ways of seeing and with some discipline, you’ll push yourself to see more than you had before.
- Stay away from drawing from photos UNLESS it’s upside down. That’s a really great exercise to really see lines and light. I’ve done that with 5 year olds to 15 year olds.
- You could study the principles and elements of art and design and that’s fine. But that’s academic and isn’t for everyone. Go to museums and galleries and critique art beyond “i like it.” Figure out what you like/dislike and why. Not only will going to museums and galleries keep you informed of the vast art world, but it will help steer you in your own creative direction.
- When you create, use different mediums.
- Keep your head up. No really. Try not to look down at the page at what you’re drawing. Learn to trust what you see and make a mark.
- Also, draw with a pen so you can’t erase.
- Watch different youtube tutorials. sometimes you just need a demonstrate with that explanation.
Well you already said a lot of good things. Like drawing from a pic upside down, I’m going to try that, but anyway…
Also thanks for the tag!

I’ve been doing their meditation challenges for over a year now and idk how i missed the memo on this one but my friend sent it to me today. It came just in time since lately ive been feeling overwhelmed a lot. This meditation challenge is about “Finding Your Flow” and I’m just sharing it with those of you who may be interested. (like elusivelyshani ashjanae/ ashleyjanaeart feliciashanay nzingasconquests missandrealewis)
In my history of animation class in college I wrote a paper on how the director of Kirikou and the Sorceress tackled portraying diversity and essentially a race outside of his own compared to more western deceptions of race in animations such as Disney and Dreamworks and man, I was super proud of that paper. I can’t wait to get to that point in my career where I am on panel and can divulge into things like that
I’m at the show choir benefit concert in Long Island and to say that this is like “Black Glee” would be a complete slap in the face to the level of talent and Black excellence I’m witnessing! Like wow! The choir is called “Rhythm Of The Knight” and I hope they go to Chicago and win the Nationals! They deserve it!
so i had a good ass night
i ran into Tanisha from girl code at this small hair event ( i wanted to take a pic with her but it really didnt seem like that kind of event even though im sure she wouldve been cool with it…i dont need to take pics with people all the time, they’re still people) anyway we are basically the same size and that made me happy
and then i went Jesse Boykins III listening party at Quad studios (this studio is a big deal here in nyc) and he spoke so much a bout love and relationships I really appreciated hearing him talk and feeling like outside of tumblr that there really is young men out there that view these things similar to how I do. I need guys friends as chill him tho and open minded and conscious ( i have like two and they’re dope but still)
anyways God bless my friends and their jobs that allows them to bring me along to things like this
lookin into weaves again and I’m realizing I don’t understand bundles like i thought i did lol
idk how many bundles I may need and don’t know a thing about these hairs for these countries
lol I know there is a chick out there on youtube that will educate me
I need my working friends not to romanticize my unemployment…
