I ♥ this song!
Saturday, January 16, 2010
I was sad and angry because no matter how hard I am trying to be happy, my subconscious will not let me rest. It's a constant fight.
I suppose there will always be days like this. So I surrendered to the comfort of my sheets and attempted to amuse myself with my favorite TV shows. After a while, the feeling subsided enough and with time to turn my day around. I turned to my handy dandy resolution tree and spent the rest of the day cleaning, reading, doing art, and to break the routine, I decided to bake these awesome cookies.
I tried these cookies the other day. They were so good and put such a big smile on my face that I had to have the recipe.
After baking, I met up with my friends at the bar where my friends had their gig. We brought cookies for our friends. I proceeded to turn my day into a great night, with the company of my beautiful girls!

This was my first time to hear this song and I really appreciated it, just because its simple lyrics really captures a girl's journey in learning how to love and live with herself. I read in the comments that this song was about the singer's battle with annorexia. To me, it just makes me think about any girl's battle with her own insecurities.
I was thinking about a time in my life when I thought girls who had insecurities were just completely appaling. I was about 13 or 14. Confident, and completely clueless. Just a little after that, all of a sudden: I wasn't smart enough. I wasn't pretty enough. I was fat. I was just horrible at everything I tried. I was transparent. I guess you never really understand some things until you experience them yourself.
Then slowly, you realize what you're worth. At 25, I think it's finally that time for me.
At the open house for the military build up, a biologist told me that there will be fatalities with the butterfly fish in the planned dredging of Apra Harbor. It made me sad. :(
So, I said I was going to take a time-out on doing vectors the other day. Before I did that, I decided to finally do the vector my Uncle requested me to do. So here is a vector of a lady who I do not know at all. Now, the break from begins!

This is a greeting I made for my cousin Merly. I'm not too stoked on how it turned out, but she still liked it.
I think I'm going to lie low on the vectors for awhile. Over the past couple of weeks, I've gotten 4 requests from my vain friends and family members. I'll eventually get around to those requests, but maybe I'll do them for special occasions.

The U.S. Military is planning to relocate Marines from Okinawa. This move is going to increase Guam's population by 50%. The military build-up may provide more jobs for Guam's people, but its undesirable effects on the island's culture, environment, infrastructures, wildlife and resources are definitely a cause for concern.
For instance, in order to make room for a nuclear aircraft carrier, the military plans on dredging 2.3 million square feet (imagine 40 football fields!) of reef. 35% percent of this reef is coral, which is vital to our island's ecosystem.
This is one of the many, many, many things that bother me about the military build-up. I am not Chamorro, but Guam is my home.
So for my 365 Days of Art, I present you with:
