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.

I am always active for a while and then I disappear. Well, I am proudly here to announce that I am part of the tattooed gang! Yay! I don’t know how I managed to get it but go through it because I got a hand poked one!
The experience was amazing. I am still thinking to myself how did I manage to actually do it! So proud of myself. Here is a bad photo I took!
I never realised that my anxiety can affect my body so much! It is so hard to control it. I have managed to control it, in a way it doesn’t show to the world, but my body takes the punish. So it is time to start letting go and taking care of myself.
And life? I think she’s ok! I am we haven’t caught in a while with her for a coffee!
I am happy to say that the things are getting better and falling into place. For one thing, I just had my first author contact me and asked me to review their book! I am so proud of my hard work and finally someone liking it and asking me to review their book!
I am sure I will come inspired tomorrow with another post, but now this is it!
Mr.Sparkles is out! ( sparkles is a he yes even if I am a she)
I found this, in one of the book groups, I am in. I thought to myself, would I?
I mean I would hope my life is awesome I am planning to be. If my life was epic I would want to read the end experience and say no way! If this is how I am going down then pat on the shoulder.
If though my life is going boring and not interesting I still want to know so I can re-write my stupid self for letting down my dreams and hopes.
Like HELLO, we live one life better make it count, the good and the bad. In fact, I want to be the writer of this book because I know the best way to go down!
Morbid? maybe but definitely not giving up.
My love for subscription boxes started when I joined book groups and everyone has been sharing their opinions and boxes. I love this subscription box because is only 9.95pounds I think and the shipping is cheap so if you don’t live in the UK its all good they don’t charge a lot of money. It is a stationery subscription box and you get a few stationary items. I post a photo as well! Like I am telling you it is worth it. The items you get cost more than the box! Every month it’s different so you don’t double up really. I will a link so you guys can check it out. DA LINK: Papergang
If you ask me it’s worth getting!
My chapter hmm, I think I am going to call it
EAT, READ, EXPENSIVE AND REPEAT
First of all, pizza has become my boyfriend, you guys! I am obsessed, so I am forcing myself to go on a “challenge” otherwise my diet consists of potatoes, pizza, tahini and salad and it’s not healthy.
Read? Hello!!!! I am banned to buy more books because my TBR pile is out of hand like jeez. Don’t worry I put my books on Kindle here so we can be obsessive buddies together.
Fugitive magic (currently reading)
Kitsune: A Little Mermaid Retelling (free goodie cause I don’t like spending too much money)
I only linked three because ya guys you be reading for ages plus That’s How I am going to read this books! If you want me to list more books comment below and I will make a new post.
Expensive da with paying my bills and buying books and takeaways it is not cheap.
Repeat obviously the cycle never ends.
Whats your chapter?
How you been? I bet you guys forgot that I existed because of not being present here!
How am I?
I don’t know, I feel lost, stressed, overwhelmed so many projects, not enough time!
I missed writing here, but every time I attempt to write I give up. I have named it boredom, but is it?
Lately, I have this overbearing feeling that I want to hide from humanity my responsibilities, run away from my life and lock myself in a remote island so I can get the projects that I want done.
Finish my bloody kid’s book it is almost done the story is so cute but I can’t find an ending to it.
Finish my poetry book, I have written so far 34 poems I wanted to reach 100, but not nothing. Also adding to that I decided to do photos accompanying the poems.
Continue writing my novel, at the start of the year it was going so well, but I have been stuck with it for a long time. It is not writer’s block because ya guys I haven’t opened the document over 5 months.
It’s an art project, I know the concept, I haven’t gotten into to actually trying it.
I am on process creating it but I feel scared. Sorry, can’t say too much only a few people know about it.
Also, I am trying to make my book blog bigger you can go check it out My Trending Books
Did I mention that I work full time as well?
I guess the only advice that I can give myself and other people in this situation is take it slowly prioritize and take it step by step. So for once, I am taking my advice!
Big steps for me here… not making my schedule packed, but doing it slowly.
Comment below how is your style of doing thing when your schedule is packed?
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.

Stay awesome humans
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.
