Hopeful that I’ll get over this funk soon.

Re-use Me!

This is an old thing I drew a while ago. I was just looking through my old pictures and found it.  I always meant to make it better with a follow up panel of a recycling center where the robot gets all cleaned up, but I never did heh. Maybe I’ll do it this quarter.

Without My Other Half

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Saff @ 9:11 pm

Since I have been dating her, I have basically been attached at the hips with my girlfriend. But now she has gone far away to New Zealand for an internship/backpacking adventures for several months. I am quite lonely and sad. And unfortunately was quite depressed this past weekend.

So far, I am doing better today. We unfortunately aren’t able to skype because her internet connection there is really crappy apparently and she keeps dropping out just from chatting. But we get to chat a little bit when she gets the chance.

Anyway, I’m supposed to take this chance to learn to be more independent and stop shaping my life around her.  I’m not sure how well it’s going to go. Right now I just can’t wait for the moment I can have with her online, and I can’t wait until it is June so I can go meet her in New Zealand. It’s cold and I miss her warm body with me in bed.

There really isn’t a point to this post other than letting the world know that I am now without my other half. And am quite sad about it.

Though you might see more doodles now that I find myself with nothing to do.

My Band’s Name is Moiré Rhône

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 12:45 pm

As I was stalking going through some of my friends’ pictures on Facebook (boo to the new layout btw), I came across an album cover she had been tagged in. At first I thought she had joined a band and was doing really well. But then I realized it was a meme of sorts (I actually don’t know what a meme is, but I’m assuming right now).

This is my album cover.

This is how it goes…
To create your own album cover, follow these steps:

1 – Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/. Click “Random Article” in the top left navigation box. The title of the random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3.
The last few (4-5) words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

I think I’m going to make more over the next few months. Maybe with the same band name. Maybe not. We’ll see. It was fun =)

Share if you make one!

One Day I’ll Speak Many Languages Too!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Saff @ 12:39 pm

I just found this blog entry: How to learn, but not master, any language in 1 hour. It seems pretty… simple. yes?

I plan on learning French and Spanish while the girlfriend is gone. And then surprise her when I see her again. I wonder how long this plan will really last… haha

Also, I was looking around his blog and his latest entry is kind of a social experiment/fundraising thing where if you follow him on twitter, he’ll donate $1 to US public schools, and another company will match $2, so a total of $3 to our public schools. You can read more about it here: The Tweet to Beat: Paying $3 Per Twitter Follower . It seems pretty cool. Also, he’s giving away stuff. So… support our schools and possibly win free stuff! Sounds like a good deal to me! haha

Your Smile When It Rains

Your Smile When It Rains

The rain is blowing outside.
Swaying leaves and branches. The pool oscillates
Cyan blue spills over onto grey concrete
soaked in the earth’s tears.
I sniffle my nose
smothered by the smell of wet dirt.
I can’t breathe without opening my mouth in awe…
The thunder drums and fills my ears
If only you were here to hold me now.
Only four seconds ago there was a flash of light
how close is that?
one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand,
the thunder is loud.
the bass rumbles through the speakers
vibrating my heart strings
made of cat gut resonate so nicely against the wood grains
running so smooth along the neck
across the back
Like a tiger’s shoulders
arching as she stalks her dinner
quietly in the tall, tan grass
so dry against my hands they crinkle and crack when I bend them
snapping into little pieces between my fingers before I toss them in your hair.
You think I am so immature
but one day…
one day I’ll show you that I can do more than take care of myself.
I don’t cower as much when the thunder comes.
but I’d still like for you to hold me.
because the rain is blowing outside,
ripples are breaking the pool below your window,
and I’m watching with my hands pressed against the cold glass,
wide eyed,
the world fogging over as I breathe.
