How I’ve Been Feeling

I’m a literary so let’s be honest I’m always writing, but today I want to show you guys what I do when I’m not writing. It doesn’t happen a lot, because I have a good amount of work to keep up with but whenever I do get to engage in the hobbies I love, it is magical. I love to create art but not only words on the page, I love drawing as well. I got bored and drew a picture that I could analyze and describe specifically for this blog. 

     When I drew this picture, I didn’t really have anything in mind. I didn’t have any inspiration or reference photo. I just put a line on the page and kept going. Everything I draw tends to be pretty colorful, and vibrant. It also turns out very abstract. I was never one to plan something out AND THEN DRAW IT.  

     THE PICTURE I DREW LOOKS LIKE PLANKTON’S WIFE KAREN ON THE NICKELODEON SHOW SPONGEBOB. IT KIND OF REMINDS ME OF A ROBOT, THROWING A BIRTHDAY PARTY, BECAUSE OF THE WAY I DREW THE HEAD. THE TAIL KIND OF REMINDS ME OF A 2 PERSON HALLOWEEN COSTUME SPECIFICALLY A HORSE IF I’M LOOKING AT THE SMALL TAIL, AND A PEACOCK IF I’M LOOKING AT THE BIG ONE. I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF IT. 

     I DREW THIS PICTURE TO KIND OF EXPRESS HOW I’VE BEEN FEELING LATELY WHICH IS OVERWHELMED, OVERUSED, AND OVERPOWERED. THE 12 ELECTRICAL CORDS TRYING TO FIT INTO 2 ELECTRICAL SOCKETS IS EXPRESSING HOW MUCH WEIGHT AND PRESSURE I FEEL LIKE I HAVE ON MY HEAD, AND THE SPARKS FLYING OUT OF THE OUTLET IS THE SIGN THAT IT’S ABOUT TO BLOW UP. THE WALL OUTLET REPRESENTS ME IN REAL LIFE. EVERYONE IS TRYING TO CHARGE THEMSELVES OFF OF ME, BUT I CAN’T HELP EVERYONE. SO MANY PEOPLE NEED ME TO THE POINT WHERE I FEEL AS IF I WILL EXPLODE. I CAN’T HELP THEM ALL, AND I DON’T WANT TOO.  I JUST WANT TO BE ME. I WANT TO BE FREE. I don’t want to be stuck helping kids my age with menial little tasks. I don’t mind helping people but once you start helping them it eventually gets to a point where they literally won’t stop asking. That in itself is aggravating. The 3 different facial expressions that I have drawn at the top are my mood options and I cannot decide how I feel. 

     Whenever I make up my mind about how I feel I’ll circle one of those faces, but until then I am undecided.

Aleria Holmes Writing is much more than an art or a creative outlet for me. It's simply my life, if writing doesn't exist neither do I. I believe I was truly born at the most perfect unperfect time. Writing has matured so much and many more people respect it now as a career and there are schools that teach you how to creatively write. At the same time, most people in the world will judge you, because you don't do what they do and you don't follow the simple unhappy path that they've taken. Writing has made me comfortable in my own skin, it has taught me that there is no other in this universe like me. Writing has taught me to love myself and every thought that skips across my brain, because I am important. I am enough, I am me and that's all I have ever needed to be!
