Hi. I'm glad you joined. What's your mode of expression? For me it's everything related to visual arts - painting, drawing and sometimes pottery. I haven't explored to much into another modes as I failed horribly with the piano lol. I'm working on the patience for such things. lol

But ya feel fee to show us anything mode of expression your into. :D

I have so many interest it hard to name just one and they keep adding up. I have posted most of them in my profile, but baking, dancing, singing, theatre, acting, building/remodeling homes, cooking, metal detecting..etc...etc.. I purchased a new camera and I have taken a few pictures and put them also on my profile. I have one that is on a a beach of me from behind with a metal detector in my hand and I am nude but it is from behind. I didn't think it was too bad but I changed it to only friends can view instead of public. I am the kind of person when ever I get an idea I take usually all the way from start to finish.

I saw your profile. If you painted those pictures those are really nice. I could never do something like that.

Welcome.

I started out doing photography, and photo manip-art. Then I began to write, and really have enjoyed doing that. At first, i was sort of afraid to wander too far from "reality" and wrote erotica (some of it posted on the net) although one serious piece was posted on the InIterent a few years ago on an  now defunct website. It was a short story about survivor's guilt in the period of AIDS called "Leper"

This year i have been writing romances in an attempt to get published - no luck so far, but encouraging words form other writers.Also have posted some fairly humorous (and some serious) poetry.

Oh thanks for taking a look and I appreciate the compliments. I don't do too much art now a days, I'm more focused on studying and stuff. I was doing a 100 day challenge but it really was a challenge and I couldn't keep up.

I forgot about the baking and cooking. I like those too. I am vegan/vegetarian so I like coming up with new foods and stuff. It's a lot different then cooking with meat. I sing too but I don't cuz I HATE IT. Usually people ask me in church and I'll do it... :S

Anyways, I wish I was more skilled in other areas but I'm not. I think it's neat how many things your into. Keep at it.  :)

I wish I didn't have so many hobbies. They seem to overlap and get in the way and I never have time to do them all so then I get frustrated. :)

Haha I guess, but its great though because some people don't even have one talent.

Sometimes I wish I didn't but I can't help it. I can't stop. It's like I am obsessed or something.  :)

lol Well I think it's good. My mother used to say that Satan finds work for idle hands and when your kept busy you don't have time to let the mind wonder on foolishness. So your lucky, your being kept busy :)

Right now for me I'm finding it hard to actually sit and put my ideas on paper. I want to but there is always something stopping me from it. :( One day, I'll just turn off the phone, lock myself in a room, listen to music and just go with the flow - I'm gonna just focus on drawing or painting..

I wish I was lucky but I keep getting myself into something and then I laways have to take it farther then I should. To a point where my hobbies become full time jobs. Even though this is something I love to do it becomes overwhelming at times. I then finally get through it and swear I won't do it again. I end up on something else and doing it all over again.:(

I find it hard to just sit period. But somedays I just don't want to anything and I try to be as lazy as I can. For you and your talent sounds like you must lock yourself in your room, turn off your phone just to get anything done.

Yes I guess we have to temperate in all things. Not too much or too little and abstinence from which is harmful :)

Yes. My problem is I love the things I do but then get burned out and then don't want to do it anymore...but then a couple months go by and I find myself in the same situation. :)
908392 tn?1316526499
lol Yes I really have to be in the mood to do things too. I have many ideas in my head but I never get around to actually doing them. It drives me crazy... for now I'm just not gonna even let it bother me and focus on the most important things in my life at the moment.


You should try that too. Although I'm almost certain that it won't entirely die, but you can make that it's punishment for now. lol :)
