It's been a long time

It's been a long time since I've posted anything... sorry ya'll. Anyways something new, I've recently started a project for my CAD class and I'm designing a deck of playing cards. I'll put out the pictures when I'm done. I've kind of had drawings piling up by the dozens over the past few months so I'm thinking I'll have lots of things to mix and match as I go along. So yup cool stuff. I'll try to keep things more updated.

The Ink and The Drawing

I watch as it drops,
A dark liquid it never stops.
Plop, plop, plop it hits the white snow.
Twisting, turning, curving, I watch it go.
Creating something new
Something I never imagined
Totally out of the blue
But why is it so construed?
I demand it to follow my wishes…
It doesn’t listen; it seems as if it’s possessed
I ask it why and it confesses…
I just want what I want
For no outside forces to give me a taunt.
That I might be something beautiful.
I don’t want you to say I just made this,
You just need to be useful
And pretend it’s pure bliss.
I want it not to be your own doing
Despite others constant wondering
Despite what they say or you may hear
I want you to say you just let it appear.

So what I did with my spare time last week...

So last week I actually had a moment of total free time and I wrote this. Anyways I know it needs some polishing, so tell me whatchya think. :)

The Gate:

I see a light shining
Towards me, it is coming.
A narrow path with an open door,
Here to lead me to something more.
There is nothing I can do,
but face its way.
It leaves me breathless,
without a thing to say.
There's nothing I can do...
So I step through.

Reply to "Our Youth" on TMN

It's pretty natural for people to have prideful mindsets. Honestly, I'll admit to being pretty prideful myself a lot of the time. I don't think that it's youth in particular, but really just anyone. I think the reason why it seems like it's the youth in particular is because of what culture promotes in youth these days. I think it allows youth to feel like they can more freely unleash their prideful mindsets and not be frowned upon. The culture we seem to live in today (in the area of youths) seems to promote that you can act like a jerk/brat whatever and it's deemed as 'cool'. This is just what I see every time I turn the tv onto a youth channel or look at a youth magazine or whatever. Whereas in older times it was more frowned upon than it is now. I think elderly people are just more experienced at hiding their pride and wouldn't be caught dead acting as prideful as the youth on the outside, but that doesn't mean that they're not acting as prideful as the youth on the inside i.e. not listening to you, thinking they're better than you, ect. Pride is in everyone at one point or another. Honestly though age doesn't matter, people just have to realize to truly be able to learn they have to humble themselves. Another thing is, not to mistake confidence with pride. I would say confidence is performing without fear whereas pride is saying that you can't get any better cause you're already the best.
I hope I didn't overstep my bounds writing this because I would consider myself a youth in the sense that I'm not as experienced as people older than me and not nearly as wise. I say in a sense because I also like to think of myself as an adult in order to push myself to accept the responsibilities of an adult so that when the time comes for me to live on my own and have to provide for myself I'll be ready. Here this kind of explains what I'm getting at better than I can explain about being a youth and adult at the same time if you're interested:

For all my card designs from here on out you'll have to go to the design blog

For all my card designs from here on out you'll have to go to the design blog I made. It's in the the navigation bar up top. It was just getting too cluttered on this blog.
