hello

'hello..."
hello and welcome to my little blog. My new favorite place. Well, I have others but this one is the latest and my most favorite.

What will be on this blog? My art, my fiction writings, books I read and sometimes adore, whatever interest me or gets into my head & every now and then some photographs. So it's really just another blog but maybe there are things here that sort of show off my personal side but not much.

Here's a list of seven things about me: 
01/ I like reading, drawing, simulating information slowly and silently writing novels in my head and never get them out.

02/ On certain days, I would call myself an artist and a writer but those days are rare and today doesn't seem to be one of them.

03/  I am a high-functioning introvert - yes I am and I'm not afraid to admit that, well, behind the computer screen anyway.

04/ I'm very fond of organizing things and then reorganize them.

05/ I waste a lot of time just staring at the computer screen - you know - watching movies, tv shows, catching up on the news, checking emails and such and maybe do some writing or some other distracting things.

06/ Seven is my favorite number and so you will notice I favor seven a lot in my posts.

07/ I like to make lists so most of what I posted are in list form and why not? I like reading things in lists unless it's a book and even then, a book is often broken up in chapters or parts so a book is really just a very long, detailed list.

I hope you have a nice visit. Thank you for dropping by. Have a lovely day.

  1. I love your writ eup here, Lissa. Many of the things I kind of knew but a few new things in the mix too. Here is my reply to each:

    01/ I didn't know about the "simulating information slowly" a bit but I do imagine you mulling over books and such so maybe not too suprising.

    02/ -- While I can write quite well and have always done well in composition, I don't consider myself a writer even though I enjoy it now and then, but not all the time! :) In fact, I don't ever call myself an "artist" either as I think fine art then. I prefer to think of myself as a "designer" as that is what I do for living and an "illustrator" but not a professional one as I jsut do it for fun for the most part. (Alex is the one who helps me sell that art as cards and prints now and then.) Isn't it interesting how we perceive ourselveS?

    03/ I am a high-functioning introvert
    - Haha, that is so funny. You are indeed very high functioning then!

    04/ I'm very fond of organizing things and then reorganize them.
    --You list making rather proves that point, I think.

    05/ I waste a lot of time just staring at the computer screen - you know - watching movies, tv shows, catching up on the news, checking emails and such and maybe do some writing or some other distracting things.
    --ME too but I also get alot done on line too ...like all my paying work!

    06/ Seven is my favorite number and so you will notice I favor seven a lot in my posts.
    _so got that! :)

    07/
    --Well put about books there

    1. I don't often give myself titles even when they are true. even as I work as a graphic designer, I often find, it's not the title I used much, frankly, people rarely ask me what I do for a living.

      I'm that same, when someone says they're an artist, I also think of fine arts and such but artist is sort of like a universal word because everyone is an artist in their own ways.

      thanks for reading. have a lovely day.
