Hello, people of the world. Some of you might know that I am currently studying on the 3rd year of the Applied Arts Degree. I have chosen depression as the subject I will focus on this year. I have been asked many times why I am exploring such a subject. So I am going to tell you: I believe that art has the power to join people together and make the hostile world smaller. So that’s why I am doing this art project. Depression has been one of the leading diseases on the western world. My journey of studying and making art about depression made me realize that I can help people somehow. This event #deardepression has been created because I believe if we share our struggles with one another it makes a bit brighter, a bit healthier.
In this event you are asked to share your experiences, there are many ways to do this.
This event is for every single human being. You don’t have to be depressed to write something. if this subject inspires you to ‘write’ about it and share it, then go ahead.
This event also about breaking the barrier of depression and making everyone a stepcloser to a healthier self by expressing feelings and becoming closer to the people around you.
The way to participate is to use the #deardepression on your post so people can find you. Also post the link to the comments below. If you don’t have a blog you are more than welcome to write your story and send it to me or post it on the comments below– either way I will try to make it visible. If anyone wants to write something on the Facebook page, twitter, or tumblr please feel welcome to, but remember to use the hash-tag and tag me so I can see it.

The happy life we meant to have! happy is the new black No feel no emotions other than happiness
those are some examples that society wants us to be.
Human beings are getting better to express their feelings and mental problems. I am one of them. what’s my baggage?
what’s my baggage?
The need to achieve the best and pack as much as I can to my schedule and I want to “succeed” in life.
you might say it’s healthy to have those goals! but not when you can’t sleep at night because you feel you failed at what you do. You might say I am a workaholic because when I am not working I am on the next project, cleaning, writing, reading, going out.
All those things there are not bad, but I have been in a burnt out phase and my anxiety has peaked levels. The only way I used to manage all of this was by binge eating. I can’t do that anymore because I am being “good” with food and my body so my credit card suffers from it. Shopping doesn’t fill the wholeness and the overwhelming feeling that I have everyday.
So what do I do?
So what do you do?(if you are having this problem or worse)
For me, I take a step back cut the yuckiness out of my life, the baggage of the society, that wants us perfect beings. I am not perfect neither I want to be! I just want to succeed in life!
I feel already successful when I cut the bullshit of wanting more with my life.
I might have a degree and I might be a struggling artist that works as a barista to get by, but I couldn’t be happier because all the beautiful human beings surrounding my life.
I still try to juggle the balance of the life I want to have and the life my parents want me to have. At the end of the day, I want to be happy, sad, angry, silly, and not be judged by it because is not appropriate for my age. Who gives a shit! You are living your life not the person that’s telling you that you are not doing this accordingly by the book.
So people cut the garbage out of your life or don’t! I learned how to live with it but now I am learning to live without it.

I had a great meeting with my group today and after the meeting finished he took over my body.
He said “Elektra I am sorry but you need to go to the super market. You need to start taking care of your body and your health.”
He took me shopping we didn’t spend a lot of money and we have enough food and veggies for a whole week.
Mr. Sparkles is changing my life and I cannot help it.
I decided that will make up an alter ego. I choose my alter ego be Mr. Sparkles because Mr. Sparkle has no self-control and no shame and can say whatever he wants.
MR. Sparkles today is saying to everybody, get a little of not to give a f*ck sparkle dust because I will continue being awesome.
What does it take to relax?
Go out of town?
Not looking at emails?
Not worring about projects ?
Put on the airplane mode?
For me is going away and seeing my family… but always something happens and I get disturbed of my peace time!!! People smell that I need a time off and they do anything in their hand to stop it…
I feel I am a workaholic but I need to let go and stop doing things for people … my parter says gp out do sth get your mind of it! I simply can’t! I will force myself to do it though cause I need some time out!
What do you do for a time out? And if someone ruins it for you how do you seek it further?
I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t the typical YA book. It was little darker and maybe it could have been a reality to someone.
The characters were well put together and the story progressed nicely. It took long to read the book because I wanted to enjoy it and read all the events rather than be a blur.
The heroine was bad-ass , I love strong female characters in books. The things she been through oh my god I felt sorry for her. I was praying with her for someone to save her.
This book got me hooked. I would defiantly recommend it.
Here is the book: (affiliate)

I saved a praying mantis from my cat today and while I was doing that I had a thought why my brain feel so broken?
Meaning why am I so stressed and sad all the time? I have good things happening in my life, but every small and thing turn into a big drama day of crying for me.
Lately, I feel everyone hates me, and they want to destroy me. I know it is not true, but my head is messing up with me.
Honestly, I need a time-out.Time out from life, work, relationships, friendships I want to float into void and be surrounded by white light. Evey time I plan to do that something pulls me back to reality. All I need is 3 days away from every possible situation to just let the worries float out.
Before you start reading, I would like to say this is my theory you might feel different, but this is how I view it.
I always find difficult to trust psychologists and hairdressers. They hold so much power.
The psychologists hold power to help you heal from within, and the hairdresser helps you improve from the outside. I mean imagine if you had the worst scenario in both situations you end crazier than before with bad hair to top it up. You can’t hide either of them.
Imagine if you had a good hairdresser and a psychologist then you shine like a diamond even if you not there yet mentally.
So I am here to warn you to choose wisely because with many options comes great responsibility for yourself.
Stay awesome people.
Ps. I had so many bad haircuts in my life that now when I find a good hairdresser I treat her like a queen they are a rare species.
Imagine your life as a million of paths and strings and every step you make you create new path and you cut one string. Now you don’t know where you going because you are blind, but every step you make you think you making he right decision.
Isn’t scary to be walking blind? And thinking you are making the right step to your happiness?
I always think what about the other paths? Or how do I know that the step I am making it’s not predestined and I am just doing it thinking it’s free will.
I mean there are millions of other parallel universes that I might be dead, rich, or famous.
All I know I won’t stop trying to live the life I think it’s best for me. Even if it is hard. I will be proud of it in the end of the day.
