A LOT has happened since I last wrote. It's a lot easier to make it in list format....

 

- Haven't been in a relationship in a long time, but still friends with my ex. Still is a complicated thing, which is why I tend to keep my distance and I do not contact him these days other than to ask for his opinion on my writing (fiction, prose, poems).

 

- I am published! Well, not my own full length book, but I'm taking steps at this time. I am in a zombie anthology, it is available print on demand. So damn trippy to hold the book with my name on the back and a bio in the back pages.

 

- Seriously working hard on writing. Expect big things, on the verge. Really. Working on my full length zombie novel, short pieces, prose, poems and a story collection. I need to work on the collection the most since the editor of Hazzardous Press emailed me after reading my wordpress and said not to worry about the deadline. Overall I was told not to worry since I already have a relationship with the label. This is something that might be in print too.

 

- Attending the World Horror Convention in New Orleans in June. This is tied into the Bram Stoker Awards so I'm excited to go. I will be going for the Hazzardous Press booth to sign the anthology and to dip my toes into this world...

 

- My niece joined me as a Scorpio. She's so gorgeous and sweet, my mum is surprised by how I've been with her. She's a fairly calm baby, very pretty and sweet mannered. Photos soon.

 

- Strengthened my friendship with Christopher and get to see him a few times a year. That got complicated too, but I resisted said offers and our friendship remains in tact. The complications were strangely surreal, but I behaved myself instead and resisted.

 

- Parents live in Colorado now and are trying their hardest to convince me to move in with them into their large home. It's tempting but haaa...complicated again. Isn't it always with family?

 

- More art driven these days.

 

- Found a conceptual artist for my comic book and will be making some progress there....

 

- Turned 28 years old and still have the movie theatres upset when I don't have my ID with me to prove I am old enough to see an R-rated film.

 

- Grandma went even more insane...it's to the stage where my siblings and I don't even go near her at all. She is awful and unmedicated. Mum is standing up to her for us, which is really sad that she had to choose between her children and mother.

 

- All three of my siblings are now married and within an year and a half of each other. Elisha married Jeremy on June 16th, 2011. Leah married Jason on July 16th, 2012. KC married Selina on December 24, 2012. It's fucking insane.

 

- I lost a lot of weight in a short period and have kept it off. How much? 20 lbs in a month and a half. I need to continue with my exercise, eating healthy and such. Once the New Year begins, I will redo the master cleanse (which I only did for 5 days back in July and didn't do the whole 10 days) because it kick started my organic eating and being healthier. I haven't gorged myself at all for Christmas either since my tum has been causing me some issues and I really watch the sugars for fear of the tum hurting.

 

Lots of photos later....but here's something to appease those wanting more details and what I keep updated the most.

It's my official blog as an author and artist. There's a lot of artwork, excerpts and photos too...

 

I shall try to catch up on LJ. It'll be easier in January/February when my laptop works :) I mainly quit writing on here last time since I felt awful with how things wound up going and lack of internet source aside from on mobile. The only reason I've been able to write on here so well is thanks to my new sister-in-law's wireless keyboard since mine is dead and needs to be exchanged.

A number of U.S. states are planning to legalize marijuana. Do you agree or disagree with this policy, and why?


I agree with it for a large number of reasons:

1) It will cut down on arrests related to marijuana. Think about it, some of those arrested for posession will cut down.

2) It has been proven to be effective treatment for anxiety and depression.

3) Pain! Its one of the best pain relievers.

Each morning I wake up to a new email from Jesse.

If anyone else were to call me "baby," I'd hurt them. I've never let a guy get away with giving me such a pet name. He's taken to calling me baby, I never corrected him the first time and thought it wouldn't continue. I was wrong, somehow it doesn't bug me since its coming from him. He even manages to get away with "lover." I know, its utterly ridiculous.

He worries me at times with how much he works, with how hard he works. So few tell him to actually slow down, it amazes me. Yesterday's email really worried me, he admitted he was starting to see imaginary circles and about to fall asleep in his food.

I'm becoming slowly zombified, each day blurs into the next.

Yesterday was decent - I napped, read a book, watched the Olympics, made pancakes for dinner, worked on my project for Jesse, watched TV w/ my Grandma Gayle.

I can't sleep anymore though. I get by with naps, try to sleep but I wind up staring into the dark, feeling restless. Sometimes I'll doze for an hour, but wake up feeling more drained than ever.

Dear you,

Its just so hard to find someone you can talk to that both calms you and takes your mind off of things. Maybe that's why I feel so left behind. I know it wasn't the intention.

And its all so silly because I probably don't mean much to you at all. My friend, my...complication. I don't know what you are anymore. I'd hit or ignore any other guy to call me "baby" or "lover." Not you, I'm not even sure why. Its all on this silly, stupid, unexplainable realm.

I do have others to talk to, often. I have plenty of female friends who I don't even blink twice at when they call me little things (darling, dear, lovey, doll). Who wrote these rules?

Its the long conversations I miss. Challenges to fuck up and find something the other may not like (though I seem to be better at that as you're more picky than I am).

Strange and random talks about nothing, music and everything.

But it comes down to one thing: I can't talk to you anymore.

It was nice when you rushed to talk to me, but those days are few the busier you get. I don't want to have to beg for your attention, as much as I missed it.

I think you spoiled me.

I can hear the tick of the clock,
Too close to my head.
It's giving me a headache,
To think of all,
Of all the tick tocks,
I've ever heard,
Only one second counted
Now didn't it,
Once long ago.
It was like an atom bomb went off in my house,
And everybody left.
I wish I were a superhero like the X-Men in the comics,
'Cause maybe then I could've withstood the blast.
Oh but I shattered like an ordinary sheet of glass,
And there's not enough superglue in the world.

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

Oh I wish I were just like the T1000 in Terminator 2,
'Cause he could melt back together again,
Even after Schwartznegger blew him to bits.
Yeah he was mean, but he knew exactly who he was.
Oh, and incidentally, so did that guy, Kiser Soze,
In Usual Suspects, but he had to blow his whole family away.

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.
I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.
I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.

I can hear the tick of that clock,
Still close to my head
Maybe if I couldn't hear the seconds pass,
I wouldn't have to ask:

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

How long...how long...

Taylor Hanson and His Wife Welcome Baby No. 4 | Taylor Hanson
Make way for the newest Hanson!

Taylor, the middle brother of the rock trio Hanson, and his wife Natalie welcomed a son, Viggo Moriah, on Tuesday in Tulsa, Okla., they tell PEOPLE exclusively.

"Viggo is doing great. He is the perfect early Christmas gift," the couple says of their 8 lb., 5 oz. arrival. "We look forward to being home to enjoy the holidays with him and his very excited brothers and sister."

Viggo joins older brothers Ezra, 6, and River, 2, and sister Penelope, 3. The growing Hanson family also includes their cousins, Isaac and Zac's kids, Everett, 1, Shepherd, 6 months, and Monroe, 5 months.

Taylor, 25, and Natalie, 24, announced in August that they were expecting.

Taylor and his bandmate brothers recently released Take the Walk, a book chronicling their experiences working to fight AIDS and poverty in Africa. They plan to get back into the studio early next year and hope to release a new album by the summer.

Dear God, I just want to know, does he hate his children?  For real?  Viggo Moriah?

Hanson brings me constant amusement.

"Maybe our mistakes are make our fate. Without them what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course: we wouldn't fall in love or have babies or be who we are. After all, seasons change, so do cities. People come into your life and people go, but it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're lucky, a plane ride away. "
