YOUR BEST CRITIC: WHY WE CHEAT OURSELVES FROM DOING A “GOOD JOB”

YOUR BEST CRITIC: WHY WE CHEAT OURSELVES FROM DOING A “GOOD JOB”

The answer is you. The dynamic of criticism can be set to many levels and when we are our own best critic, sometimes we like to bury ourselves.

I believe that everyone has a creative hand. Personally, I like to bring forth people’s creativity, sometimes even force it out.  People are judgmental of their own work. They believe that there has to be worth in one’s art, not happiness. Maybe there is happiness in worth, but I question. Why do people create with the intention of other people’s opinions? What is the definition of perfect? What is perfect to us? What does it have to be perfect?

I’ve gotten questions about how I post my work and in a way exposing myself or being vulnerable. Yes, I agree it is vulnerable and time-consuming. Mentally consuming. I think the hardest thing in life is commitment. We commit to family, we commit to friends, we commit to our partners, our jobs, ourselves. In some of those commitments, it is less than others. With all this commitment there is effort, With effort there is perfectionism. I wouldn’t call myself a perfectionist but a complete-ist? (Is that even a word?)

Some Drawings From My Journal

Can creativity be at a high and low at the same time? The lack and slack of my blog posts have been bugging me but sometimes I am not the best at coordinating and organizing a plan. I usually work with my own time and patience unless it involves other people in the process.

I’ve been reaching to create and I’ve found that through drawing, sketching, doodling, and even writing random lines and lyrics. I think that I have a lot to express but not a big enough canvas to place every medium and content I want. I end up getting overwhelmed or too excited-in the end, nothing comes out of it! But sometimes I like to draw Continue reading “Fruits And Sharpie”

Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno

Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno

Green Porno? What is the first thing that pops in your mind? How can something like Porno be described as Green? What is a Green Porno? 

I am not sure when or what I was doing at the time, but I do remember that I was watching YouTube and I decided to search an actress, Isabella Rossellini. I remembered her Continue reading “Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno”

I made a short song

Hello everyone, I made a short song from a poem I wrote. It’s just a demo of it so it’s not a finished product. I decided to play some chords and sing the poem as it came to me. It’s not the greatest but I like it and I hope to make it into a fuller song. Check it out on my SoundCloud Now!

 

– Men in Bikinis Women in Speedos –

Right words in the mouth

take the chance to make it out.

Making out to better times

brings the cool out of you.

What is right is right as gold,

who would like to try?

The sun is fun the moon brings tide,

to wash away, our guilt of the night.

It’s been a while. I actually forgot all my favorite songs at the moment.

Cherub Rock by Smashing Pumpkins

He Gives His Love to Me by She & Him, they have two versions inclusive of male and female gender and preference

 

Where This Flower Blooms by Tyler the Creator. Has always been a favorite, it never gets old.

 

I’m sorry but…. Evil by Interpol and been slapping. I think I’m obsessed. Maybe it’s time to make a summer playlist.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Mustard

 

Can I have some on the side

and give me some honey.

Mix it with the vinegar

and the mustard seed.

Paste on your skin and

beam in the sunlight

We pretend we are the sun

and color ourselves with rays of gold.

Let’s get old and brown.

 

Playlist: 🌸Springtime🌸

Playlist: 🌸Springtime🌸

Hello! Tuesday began the first day of spring. To continue our seasonal playlists, I made a Springtime playlist. I would have posted it on Tuesday but I already had another post scheduled for that day. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a playlist but I’ve been working on a project involving playlists (which will come in time). In my opinion, most of the songs are pretty chill. I collect these songs with no a particular thing or idea in mind, just the fact that I really like these songs :). New songs might be added in time or throughout the season. I really hope you enjoy the playlist, Spotify link is below!
