I Am Restless For Something

    It was easier to push away in high school.

    Some days I could take pride in my life of feeling constantly sad, being defiantly apathetic and antisocial, and occasionally smoking a little grass, because I was still legally a kid. But now I'm an adult, and the feelings killing me. I'm not meant to be a student stuck in a...

    Its a difficult thing to want to give yourself something, yet you don't know where to begin. THe drive for action, the need for purpose, the pure thirst for definition is something that holds a large amount of significance for me. With this being the case, and having nowhere to...

    I lost myself somewhere along the way.

    Now I am struggling to find myself and my way back. I don't know what I'm needing, I don't know what I want. I want more but more of what.

    I can't shake the feeling that there is something out there waiting for me.  I just know there is 'something' I am supposed to do with my life that I'm not doing yet.  I just have this sense of potential, of something waiting in the wings. Sometimes I feel so frustrated...

    I Need Something

    I am restless and I just can't put my finger on any one thing. It is a combination of everything in my life I think. I need some type of change, something new to focus on and to breath new life into me. Things are stale and too predictable and there is no real excitement to...

    Something Missing

     In one of my latest works, I made a roughly 4x life sized self portrait from the waist up.  Over where the heart should be I drew an apple with a chunk bitten out of it.  During my presentation people kept asking if the apple was supposed to represent my heart...

    Nostalgia For Things That Haven't Happened Yet

    I can explain it best from a dream I had many years ago.   I am walking on a slightly worn path next to a stone wall. It is a beautiful day but I don’t really pay much attention to that. I’m not sure from where I came and I don’t know...

    Alone In A Crowd

    23 years may tend to wear down the new car smell.  You can say you don't think of her. You say you never loved her. You put her in my life without asking me if I wanted her there. Now what am I suppose to do with that?? How can you not think of her? How could you not...

    To fall in love, to start a fire in you

    and me that burns hot and bright that we feed and feed it and build it into as much as we can until we're overflowing with passion and there's nothing left to do but enjoy the flame in all it's brightness and power until it burns out. I want to drive you crazy into driving me...

     I'm still in a dream.  At least I feel that way, as if I'm floating through life, aimless like some piece of driftwood.  I wonder if I have a purpose, and I realize that search for purpose is part of the human condition.  Perhaps we're supposed to make...

    I Want To Be Where I Should Be.

    After a year and a half, I've definitively figured out what and who I really want in life. I'm so restless though because I'm impatient to fix what I need to in order to get there. The way toward my happiness seems so long and so uncertain, that I can't stop thinking about it. I...

    Still Awake

    I'm in one of those moods where I got a lot of ideas and feel like getting stuff done before I become the exact opposite. I feel happy and energize. This mood never lasts forever. There's probably a good reason for that. It's probably best that I am not always like this. There's...
