    I planned to be some great artist or animal saviour or something but instead I've finished college with ridiculously high grades and I'm sat at home unemployed cuddling my dogs watching films and eating chocolate.. Tragic :/

    I keep asking, how the hell did I end up here?

    Why is this happening like this? The worst thing about it all is the fact that it is like this because decisions were made for me...and are still being made for me. It can be worse but it is still pretty bad.

    As a child I thought

    and said, "When I grow up, I'm going to be really pretty, have a boyfriend, be popular, and go to the mall with my friends" Now, it's more like, "FANDOMS" "COLE. JUST INTERNET KISS ME!" "HARRY POTTER MUST DEFEAT VOLDEMORT" "KATNISS EVERDEEN MUST NOT DIE" Not how I planned...

    My Life Is Artwork Gone Wrong

    If you asked me ten years ago where I was going to be ten years from then I could have given you a straight answer. "I'm going to be an artist!" I was sure of it. I loved to paint, and it came so naturally. Beautiful pieces of art flowed from me like an endless...
