I’m alive and graphic!

Hey, people! Haven’t written in a while, only because I’ve spent as much of my time as possible getting back into creating graphics and images of my own for tumblr. I am not a graphic designer or anything of that nature, I am just a creative person who loves to create things, just one of my many (different) faces.

Here are a couple of edits and images I created using photoshop and canva. Enjoy!

Star Wars according to Tumblr

The Star Wars Universe according to the Tumblr fandom:

  1. Kylo Ren and Rey would actually be lovers (instead of sworn enemies fighting for two different sides of the force, light and dark)
  2. There would be an ‘Anti Reylo’ contingent who would do everything they could to stop Reylo from existing (so possibly a new faction or enemy)
  3. Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) would be a prominent figure and a sex idol
  4. Porgs would be a force to be reckoned with (not sure if they can also use the force but yeah…)
  5. Mark Hamill would be a god and would look the same as he did in Star Wars A New Hope
  6. Obi Wan Kenobi would also still be alive and possibly Rey’s father or relation
  7. Hayden Christensen as Anakin would also be some type of omnipotent being who also stays forever young
  8. Princess Leia and Padme Amidala would be fashionistas, bigger than Gucci and Prada combined
  9. John Boyega and Oscar Isaac would feature heavily as good-looking people who everyone loves
  10. Kylo Ren (man of the moment) might also be seeing General Hux on the side as Kylux

I got a facelift!

Well, in actuality I didn’t get a facelift per se, my blog, however, is feeling completely renewed 🙂 I made a decision to upgrade my blog and with it, customised a new look and feel that I think is a lot more me. Continue reading → I got a facelift!

Let’s be “Pintastic”

As some of you will know, I’ve had an ongoing battle with social media. I’m quite certain it will prove to be something that will challenge me as a blogger for the rest of my days.

When you see those little icons on your phone…

You get all excited and you can’t wait to see who your new followers are or who shared or liked your stuff. Then you realise it’s just a stupid reminder notification reminding you to do a firmware update on your phone…

I think I have well and truly become social media’s bitch 😢

This is Tumblr – pick a side

I’ve briefly talked about the Tumblr community in a previous post but until now I’ve never really understood how serious everyone is about fandoms. I’ve been a real wuss about it, politely posting things that won’t offend anyone and keeping to myself. This is not who I am yet somehow I feel compelled to fall in line like all the other nobody’s.

Large scale battles are going on every day on Tumblr. I don’t know if this relates only to Star Wars but there seems to be a serious dislike between those fans who support the “Reylo” pairing (Kylo Ren with Rey) and those who don’t (called “anti’s”).

Speculation from some of these Tumblr users goes as far as accusing one another of supporting abuse and incest. This is one time where I am happy to be a nobody.

How poetry saved me

I haven’t written poetry for a long time. While that may not seem like a good thing, my bouts of poetry writing would only occur when things in my life had taken a turn for the worst.

Poetry was my release. It was the light at the end of a dark and winding tunnel. I can’t remember when I first started regularly writing poetry. I think it may have been just after my father had passed away. The pain I felt seemed to engulf every essence of my being until all that remained was a twisted, empty shell. It was bad. I don’t know what would or could have happened if I wasn’t able to write. I feel blessed that I have a way of getting through the pain. Some people don’t have anything or anyone to turn to and I feel bad for them.

I think some of my best poetry is written from a dark place. But now that I feel a lot happier as a person, I can’t seem to channel the right energy to write. It’s as if the pain has an energy all of its own. I wrote my very first piece today. It came from a much lighter, happier place. It’s okay, I guess. I’m just happy to be a poet once more. I think of it as one of the greatest gifts I could ever give myself.

I have some exciting news

I don’t think I have mentioned here before that I used to be a freelance writer in a previous life. I haven’t done any freelance writing for some time. But my passion for writing has always been there through the dark and the light sides of my journey.

The other day I noticed an online notification for a website I frequent looking for contributors. And I decided to apply. Today I received a response advising that my application had been reviewed and they were happy to offer me a contributor’s position. I’m really looking forward to getting back “in the game” and seeing where this new opportunity will take me but most importantly, I’ll be writing again. I’ll update with more info once I have more to tell 😊
