I've gotten surprisingly vicious on this dating website.
I've deleted all but 4 messages in my inbox. (I had a few hundred)
One from someone I really really like, but I imagine we have reached an impasse and are unable to focus on a relationship. Despite this, I daresay I'm smitten.
One from a childhood friend, who messaged me when I showed up on his matches - He wrote "LOL, What's up?" To which I replied, "Shut up."
And two from local artists and photographers that sound like decent connections to keep.
UPDATE - I simply shut down my profile, there was no use for it anymore.

I've been sewing beads on to collars for several hours straight every day, all this week. The first collar, being the trial-and-error piece, caused me some grief. I misplaced one of the eyes, by about 3mm. I realized my mistake after I had finished beading the entire face, and after careful deliberation of whether or not I wanted this fox to look exceptionally derpy, I decided to fix it.
Then I was faced with the dilemma. I didn't want to tear out the surrounding beads, as the string would have undone a great deal of work I didn't want to remove and redo. So I broke them away instead, leaving the string beneath. Glass beads are easy to shatter with pliers or sturdy scissors.
I moved the eye, and only lost a few beads in the process.
I really really love this piece, and can't wait for it to be finished. I contacted a few photographers about taking some pictures for my portfolio and for my store, next week.

January is coming to a close, and I feel like this has been one of the best starts to a new year I could have asked for.

Day one

I woke up with only 2 hours of sleep, and in pain! (Its not okay, I'm gonna have wrinkles!)
I didn't want to go back to sleep, and I wasn't working, so I went shopping.
I bought a new pillow - I really needed it, as mentioned before, I've been waking up with headaches and severe neck pain for weeks.
Its crazy how something like having a fluffy pillow can really make such a difference.
I'm very particular about pillows and pillowcases, seeing as my face is buried in them for up to 8 hours at a time..

I also dropped by the used bookstore on the way back, but didn't buy anything.
I didn't know Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series had like, 14 books. Yeeesh! I started reading these when I was wee little, and book 9 was the last one I picked up, a few weeks back.
Yeah, I read dorky fantasy books.
BTW, I finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman last week, while sunbathing. I decided I liked it.

I grew up in Coronado, California, and the ocean is something I truly miss. I love perfumes, flowers, pastels and muted colours. I love to watch anime, play games, read books, eat sweets, and drink ice cream floats.
Despite liking really girly things, I don't consider myself an exceptionally girly person.
I get a huge boner for Baroque music.
