Day Four - Favorite Place

Ideally, my favorite is under a tree on a warm, windy day, with a book in my hands and not a care in the world. That's why when I found this picture online, I was ecstatic as can be!

But ... This is not really something I get to do anymore. Sure, when I was younger, but now, I don't even have a tree to claim as my own anymore! :(

I miss it. The tree. I also miss the feel of books. Actual books, not just e-books. (I cheat sometimes and but print even though I have an e-reader now.) Nothing can take away the feeling . . .

So then, I thought about it, and I couldn't really figure out a favorite. I have one place of refuge, and that's what I decided to draw. It's pretty funny, the insane amounts of time I have spent in this place. I come here to read, and I know, that is still such a solitary activity, but more often than not, I get surprised that I see so many people there, and I end up not being alone after all! It has become a meeting place, a very comfortable hang out for me and friends. It's got coffee, pastries, music, books, and everything else I need! So, without further ado, I give you . . . . Barnes and Noble!!! (Bwahahahaha!)

Day Three - Favorite Food

It's simple. My favorite food is this:

My yummy meaty lasagna!

I blame it all on Garfield, really. Heehee. I was young and impressionable, and Garfield made it look so delectable. (I never recovered, not really.) :P

Day Two - Favorite Animal

It's a dolphin, in case you couldn't tell. :P

I've always loved dolphins, have always thought of them as magical, beautiful creatures. Someday, I'd love to be able to swim with dolphins. Bucket list.

Day One - Yourself

I tried my best in the first one, and it looks like a person, so that's something, although truth be told, it really doesn't really look like me. So I tried to do it again, and I think it's more like me. At any rate, I won't stop until I can actually produce a decent drawing of myself.

First picture; I couldn't get the mouth right, at all, and the eyes are scary too;
come to think of it, this whole picture is off, hahaha

Second try; different picture

30-Day Drawing Challenge

C-bear posted this challenge a week ago, and it has inspired me to go back to drawing. Not that I'm any good, mind. It's just that I used to try, when I was younger, and it's always made me happy. (It's like singing for me. I love doing it, although I can never call myself a good singer, hahaha. Really one of those things you do just for the fun of it.)

So. No pressure, all right? Hee.

... better version

Escaping to books is exactly what I did in 2011. I devoured stories like I have never done before. I am very glad to have had the time for this, but I think 2012 calls for a change. Hopefully, I will be able to achieve some sort of balance in my life, in which I am not neglecting my mind, my body, and my spiritual life. I am mindful of the way I live, and I hope to be able to adapt and grow into a better version of me.

... happy moments (make it last)

Happy moments. (Make it last.)
