Art Challenge.

 I started a daily art challenge. The first day was to do a self portrait.
The second was my favorite animal. 
I've always thought crows were beautiful. I relate to them because people think they are annoying and scary. I wouldn't want one flapping around in my face and I think it's weird when their mouths stay open but I can't help but love them. 

This is the challenge:
If any one knows the credit for it please tell me.

Are you interested in more art challenge updates?

I really wanted to share these quotes with you guys. I see so much sexism daily and it makes me really sad especially when coming from friends. It's really sad when my fellow women don't call them selves feminists. We need to get over the idea that feminism is a crazy idea. Being treated like an equal human isn't crazy.
I love these quotes and hope you do to.

Cheers to equality!

What I like about me.

Something that seems to help with low self esteem is making a list of things you like about yourself. Try it!
I will share my list. 
Things I like about me:
1. I have no doubt of who I want to be.
2. I enjoy my personal style. 
3. Attention to detail.
4. Ability to see beauty in "ugly" or non-traditionally beautiful things.
5. Good visual memory- 
Sometimes this is a curse though because I remember everyone's faces that I've ever seen. It's fun when we try to remember what movie an actor was in but when you see someone in public that used to be in your English class, it's pretty pointless.
6. Extremely passionate. 
7. Appreciation for many things. 
8. Strong opinions. 
9. Find joy in simple things.
10. Craving for expression. 
11. I live for me.
12. Stands up for my idea of right.
13. Active imagination. (Although sometimes it's exhausting.)
14. Creative "eye"
15. I have depth. 
16. Realistic. 
17. I know it when I see it. 
18. Healthy body. (pretty much)
19. Pretty good skin.
20. Striving to be better for myself.
21. Ability to think for myself.

Values and Ellen.

Ellen is one of my biggest heroes. You'll probably get an idea why from this video.
She states her values as:
"Honesty, Equality, Kindness, Compassion, Treating people the way you want to be treated, and Helping those in need."
I can't agree more I've always valued equality and honesty above all else. I hope to teach by example and pass on those values. I can't seem to understand why equality is such a foreign concept to most people. I don't care what religion, social status or political position you are I don't think that is an excuse for wanting to take away someones chance at happiness or freedom.

What is happy?

Depression is a funny thing.
Since I'm not quite ready to talk about it freely here is a list of things that are making me happy:
My rats- I really care about those little creatures.
Even when they pee on me or nibble holes in my pillow cases.
DIY clothes- I dyed my vest (pictured above) and soon I'll work on it more!
Valentines day- How can I not like an excuse to eat candy?
Lists-Maybe they don't make me happy always but I love making them.
Apartment hunting- Having hope I might move out real soon!
Makeup experiments- seriously doing my makeup is sometimes the highlight of my day.
My friends- Even though they aren't right next to me
at least I know they wouldn't mind if they were.
Sailor Moon- One thing I can always depend on.
My little pony friendship is magic- This never fails to cheer me up.

Sweet dreams.
