Of Fractured Moments

Life Update Thumb

Hey guys! Another life update here! This is awesome, TWO posts in two days? SNAZZINESS!

Other then needing to have a bathroom break right now and being sore in my lower back, I am doing pretty darn great!

I went to the family reunion at the beach with my parents and it went very swimmingly. No one asked about my missing brow which is pretty great, and Mocha came along, too! Maybe I can upload some of her single shot pictures later, I’ll mark it on my to do list!

Getting to blog is a great end of the day relaxation kind of thing.

Unfortunately, my Mom MAY have fractured her wrist from playing volleyball. So, that sucks and is a predicament for us all. :S Know your limits, is the phrase I’ve got stuck in my brain about the matter. Sigh.

I’m hanging out with my friend Kaiden tomorrow, though! It’s going to be tricky because I’ll be out for a few hours so I’ll probably put Mocha in the crate when I go to the doggy playtime at 10a and then go to Michael’s arts and crafts store and meet Kaiden there and be back home round 1p. So then take out Mocha from there and then try and give her a bath with my friend. πŸ™‚ So yeah!

Then Mocha has a vet appointment on Monday and I’ve got partial and my Mom’s probably gonna need to go to the doctor’s… yeah. O_o

On the bright side, I totes got a couple of pictures of Mocha in the crate on the way there AND I have only 20 pages left of the book I’m reading! YAY! I can’t wait to start new ones! I have to renew my other ones though, too. :B

I’m working on some other cards now for other series. πŸ™‚ The TV is playing which is a little distracting but that’s my update for today. Things will be different around the house for the next few months for sure. We’ll see how that goes. At least my hands and wrists are a’okay!

Thank you for reading!! ❀ ❀ ❀

Teachable Moment #7 | Art Therapy Series

Who remembers THIS series? Anyone? Anyone? Yeah, I know, it’s been a long while, but I’m set on finishing this series and continuing my others! (This is totes a bonus post I found in my drafts section).

Number 7:


In this art therapy assignment, we were asked to draw our shield and then asked a bunch of questions that I have my responses to and will have to use these as ways to decipher what the fuck it was I was asked to begin with XD

So here’s what I did, and what it all means!

First I drew a shade of red to symbolize the graduate student I was seeing at the time. πŸ˜€

Then I drew the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D symbol as best as my memory allowed–because YES MCU! (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

Then I drew my teddy bear/doggo bear that I hold onto tightly when I go to sleep or when I used to be in the fetal position.

For the writing portions, here is what I have written down:

We’ll just assume it makes sense, by the way.

  1. I had a goal of improving myself and my life and getting into recovery.
  2. Overcome OCD & Depression, put them in their places and rise above them. To live again.
  3. Favorite food: Mango sherbet
  4. Biggest achievement: being president of the photography club at college
  5. Best qualities: I’m caring and dedicated
  6. Things I enjoy: photography and bracelet making
  7. Qualities I look for in others: compassion and empathy
  8. Phrase that speaks to you: Stay safe
  9. Music: Ingrid Michaelson – Keep Breathing, It’s gonna be all right by Sara Groves, Home by Phillip Phillips
  10. When I’m happy I…. have a camera in my hands
  11. What inspires me: People who have gone through or are struggling with mental illnesses …. and I can’t read what the rest of that says. XD

All of this art therapy series was from March 2015. I believe I have ONE more left to complete this hospitalization’s series which is from my second one. THEN I CAN DO ALL THE OTHER TEACHABLE MOMENTS. πŸ˜€

I will go to creating more cards for these posts, too. πŸ™‚


I hope you’ve found this interesting and if you’d like some nostalgia with this series, check out the ‘Teachable Moments’ folder at the bottom of this blog’s page! πŸ˜€ I’ll be on the hunt for finding out which is the last picture in the series, too.

I’ll have another life update post maybe after this, too.

See ya guys! ❀ ❀ ❀
