I'm an artist with talent and skill inside of her.
I love to draw anytime; rain or shine or in the clouds of boredness.
I'm a kind of girl who loves to do mixed media attempts, espeically with eye shadow make-up.
I have a crazy imaginative mind that leads me to more stories and random ideas.
I keep an open mind at times and trying things that are new to me, like painting and digital art.
I am always known with my saying, "I may be strange to you, but that's the way I am."
I leave you now with my final greeting, "Keep on drawing!" :D

Good day to you all! :D Due to the Supreme Court's historic ruling making all marriages equal for all, seeing President Obama singing Amazing Grace, or whatever that apparently makes you smile, I hope you guys had a great weekend filled with love and hope for the better world we all wanted to live in. :hug:

And of course, I celebrated with this quick colored sketch of my two OCs, finally able to get married after long years of separation, and having rainbow colors in their hair. :heart: LOVE WINS! :w00t:

+ LOVE WINS + by LadyJuxtaposition

Now you may be wondering about the meaning behind the entry's title and requested explanation about it. Well... prepare for some possible venting and personal issues I am about to unleash because the news I just got this morning really hit me inside along making the future, my future, tackled with uncertainty.

Unfortunately, we did not get that lower part of the two-floor panel apartment close to home. It turns out that one of the applicants whom we thought had moved on to other options, had got it instead. I felt my heart growing heavy and it was hurting that tears were about to come out from my eyes. With that house not longer an option, my mom is now looking into the Fox Run Apartments, two towns over where I live. What's sucks is that apartment complex was where we used to live ten years ago, due to my mom's second divorce. And now with the possibility of going back there really... what's the word... pisses me off. I shouldn't feel that way, for going there will only be temporary (for who knows how long), at least the rent will be much cheaper and the pack of three dogs and a rabbit will not be separated due to desperate measures. With that, with enough months and savings, we may have a chance of moving out and getting settled again into a much better house which we can finally called it home, and finally have a craft room in the basement.

But until that time comes, we are currently stuck in the limbo while I am still stuck in my personal cycle of getting my own independence and resources. Yep, I still have no car and been lacking of practices lately, have no real job besides being temporary caregiver for my Grandma Caroline, no apartment for myself to live in (because no car and job to pay the rent), and even though I am old enough to go on my own and possibly reside with my dad and Grandma Joanne (who have unconditionally expressed to me that knowing I still have a place to go and even offered that my mom can live with them too), I am not that ready or not that self-efficient enough to go my own. It's hard enough for me having Apraxia and a learning disability that turned things more difficult to comprehend and figure things out, and now there's this, my fate uncertain of where my next place will be whether it will be good or bad? 

Those feels... upset and sadness of the reality, anxious and scared of the unknown, but above all, I'm just emotionally pissed off to the point of going berserk with my tears and shouts. I purposely keep on having these fantasies of the bad things just happened to me because of no reason at all. Even if there was a reason to begin with, I will not understand it anyway. Nor that I never will, because I just basically choose to escape reality and live in my own world where everything is all right with no problems holding me down. I just live in my second life filled with fun adventures and actions, getting involved with affairs and romances, battling and maintaining the balance between good and evil, and just hanging out with my OCs.

I missed Dissidia very much...

But as the assumption of the Juxtaposition Theory goes, "Whenever there is Good, there must be Bad; whereas when there's Bad, there must be Good as well". Despite of having this moving limbo and being afraid of my uncertain fate this point forward made me realized that there is always hope for me and my mother, and that good things will resurfaced. The good things that will come from this is finally my mom's ex-boyfriend no longer living with us, and there shall be no more limbo and drama that we have to deal with. I was misunderstood of what God's plans have for us and why would he allow this to happen, until she told me that I was able to understand. I'm still pissed off and crying, but in a more happy manner it seems, not in vain or despair. And again, living in Fox Run Apartments is only temporary, and by saving enough money we can hopefully buy a house and no longer deal with the rent. I can still volunteer at Marklund, continue on offering commissions and making art to share around the world. I really wanted to get back to crafting and physically making stuff. I was watching DIY videos of Box Knotted Keychains, Splatted Dots Scarfs, and more recently, Container Keychains that were made with a plastic mint containers decoupaged with paper (which is something I can use my old sketches with). When that time to be creative comes, it will be heaven for me.  

Huh, you know, I just come to encounter this realization: Whether I had realized it or not, or somewhere in between which it's most likely the case, I had been through a lot in my lifetime. I had been awfully teased as a child and a teenager until later high school and college; I was a victim of an abuse in a family which had caused me turmoil until I was matured enough to understand it (it was more than just an abuse); I've been struggling with my body image to the point of almost becoming anorexic which thankfully I was not turned out that way; I had dealt with my mom's ex-boyfriend for nine years despite of being disgusted of his behavior and actions towards me and my mom; and I've been living in fear thanks to terrorism and the unpredictable weather system and the possibility of something bad might happened to me, e.g. sexual assault; drunk driving accident, being shot at, etc.

The question I have for myself is this: Why am I still alive?

Why am I still alive despite of the unfortunate events happening to me? Even if I don't have the guts to murder anyone, why didn't I drive myself into suicidal thoughts constantly? Why did I still worry about the unknown while somewhere in my mind that things are going to be alright no matter the outcome? Why do I keep on drawing and creating art while escaping, and sometimes not escaping, the cruel reality known as human life? Why do I persist myself being happy and staying upbeat and positive regardless of the bad things dragging me down?  

There's no clear answer to any of those questions I generated, but there is one thing I do know for sure and it's the answer I understand completely and persist me life. And here I go being philsopical, but I promised to keep it simple. :XD: 

That answer to "Why am I still alive?" is this: "I juxtaposed the conclusions in my lifetime".

What I mean by juxtaposed the conclusion is the aftermath of something that had changed your self, your life, and the people you know and loved and even their lives as well. I am still alive because I got through the hardships of being teased and abuse during my young years. By juxtaposing that conclusion, I've grown more matured and more forgiving to those who did worst. I am still alive because I choose not to end my life easily, but rather end a chapter of my life without regretting anything. By juxtaposing that conclusion, I can move on and start writing the next chapter. I am still alive because I accepted the harsh realities me and my mom had faced together and individually, and we faced them with the grace of God and support from friends and family, and believing in each other that we will see them through. By juxtaposing that conclusion, we overcome them along with the others that follow after, and those were triumphed over as well. So, basically, I am still alive because I had seen through the worst of events and circumstances and made myself through with the conclusion of them juxtaposed.

Something's telling me I should write a visual booklet about this. Hopefully sometime in the future for I feel this is a good topic to write about. It would be entitled: "The Coexistence of Harmony and Discord: The Juxtaposition Theory"! New York Times' Bestseller (Yeah right)! :XD: Anyway, this is the end of my vent and personal stuff revealing entry. If I by chance damper your day by reading this, then I am sorry. I have to remain honest about my feelings and be true of myself rather than hide it with fake emotions and false reassurances. But do know that I am now alright thanks to writing this entry out and getting those thoughts out of my head. I feel much better doing so, and life's too short to worry over things you cannot control. I would rather spend it on making art and sharing them with you guys. :)

So, that being said, before I leave you guys with my ending greeting, I would like to update my art status and current commission process for my fellow patrons, which will be located at the bottom of this entry. Thank you all for your kind support and unconditional love throughout this half of year. You are truly awesome! :love:

Keep on Drawing! :D

I have an extremely amount of sketches and sketchbooks that may be less of sentimental valve than they had long ago. They are taking too much of my space! What should I do with them? 

11 deviants said REUSE THEM!! Repurpose them into big fine art pieces and even ATCs.
2 deviants said DECOUPAGE THEM!! Get some blank boxes and craftable organizers and glue them over.
2 deviants said OTHER IDEAS?? Please comment. :)
No deviants said RECYCLE THEM ALL!! But keep the recent ones of 6 years from today.
