    Yupoing

    I love to yupo. I can be very creative when I am yupoing. My latest creation yupoing won a ribbon.  That means a lot to me especially since I got $200 for something I love to do.  Also a lot of people came to see the result of my creation and I won  an award. If...

    Peddling Insecurities Inadvertently

    Lucid dreaming, drifting in and out, just waiting to die Thinking "Who, what, when, where, and why the **** am I?" Depressed, at an all time low, or are my sights just set to high? Staring from across the room "She'll never go for me, How can I [even] compete with that guy?" I'm...

    My Projects

    Whether I'm writing a good story, painting some anime art, or creating an awesome website, I'm in heaven! Just spilling my imagination onto a canvas is so freeing and spiritual to me. It's like I'm a child in a toy store, able to play with everything, until I get bored. The best...

    I Love Having My Mind On Fire

    Creating may be the closest I ever come to understanding the mind of God. To pull something out of the vapors and give it form , and life is amazing.  It give me a high that I never want to get off.  I don't write to live, but writing adds something to my life that makes it...

    How Do I Create Just For The Pleasure Of It?

    I love creating. it makes me so high. But i've only ever created when it was somehow useful. like a flyer, or a slideshow for an organization, christmas cards, art homework, but i basically can't create if i just tell myself to create. It's like my imagination doesn't work. And...

    Creativity

    I am an artist. I love to paint, build, and make things, but for the last couple of months or so I have had no interest in painting or anything else. I can't seem to get past this stupid rut. I really need to get back to it, but I don't know what has happened.

    Reading, Writing, Painting

    When I Get A Dope Idea...

    To say that I get happy would be an understatement when it comes to creating ideas. I've love the process of creating new ideas since I was about 13. I've, of course, came up with ideas in elementary school as well (taking original ideas and putting my own spin on it and even...

    Original ideas are inspired.

    There are two spiritual forces in this world... good and evil. If the idea is 'good' then you can know it's source is God. So, in other words, creativity is a window into God's Personality! I absolutely LOVE that thought... because I love God.
