    I am always doing something artsy.

    Either I'm drawing, painting, making various types of origamis, DIY clothing like tie dye, or making objects look pretty. Last night I made a melted crayon forest portrait. I'm going to working more with melted crayon this weekend.

    I've been artistic since I remember. Growing up I was very isolated, but it didn't bother me much. Sleepovers and going to friend's houses usually overwhelmed me and I was quick to call my mother to come pick me up because I was bored or overwhelmed. My preference was always to...
