Panic Attack?

I think I had a panic attack tonight. The symptoms certainly point to that. I got tunnel vision, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, tingling, and then when it started to subside I went all cold with sweats. There wasn't any pain so I know it wasn't a heart attack but at the time I though I was going to die.

I think it was trigger by my house browsing. I can't really buy a house at this time but I like to look around. I have to plan for the future.

I have had the start of panic attacks before if this is what this was. Nothing so bad that I couldn't handle it and nothing for longer than 30 seconds. I feel lucky in that.

Tiny Yellow House FTW!

I follow the Make magazine feed in Google Reader. Every once in awhile they have this guy by the name of Derek Diedricksen on the feed. He also has a YouTube account relaxshacksDOTcom. What makes him so special to me is his Tiny Yellow House segments. He builds structures that could be used as homes for homeless people. They could also be used for when you travel or if you just want a small space to get away from the world in.

The reason I am bringing this up is because Mr. Diedricksen has had an article written about him in the NY Times. The article is called "The $200 Microhouse".

Mr. Diedricksen also has a book that he has written about his shelters. It is called "HUMBLE HOMES, SIMPLE SHACKS, COZY COTTAGES, RAMSHACKLE RETREATS, FUNKY FORTS (AND WHATEVER THE HECK ELSE WE COULD SQUEEZE IN HERE!". You can get it from his blog

If you are interested in building things, tiny houses, recycled building, or anything related to those options I would recommend going and checking him out.

Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality... It's all bullshit! The internet has been around in one form or another almost all my life. In that time (almost 31 years) I have never heard of one internet provider successfully trying to block certain content that isn't theirs and making it for pay only. In fact if one did try they would quickly go under because people would jump ship to a different company with their money.

The people fighting for Net Neutrality are basically stating that they think the average consumer is stupid.

Even if one company has a monopoly in a certain area if people don't like their business practices someone within that area will start up their own company. It is how a free market works!

Gah! Some times I fear for the future of the world because of the popularity of the mob mentality. Just follow the loudest voice they must be right! *face palm*

Abortion Debate Opinion

Okay, there is a lot of opinions about abortion being thrown around at the moment. There has always been a debate going on but it has gotten worse since the whole Planned Parenthood undercover tape thing has come out. I am going to give my two cents about it just because I need to get it out there before I drive myself nuts.

If you get pregnant and you want to abort it that is up to you. I would personally not do it but that is my choice and I am not going to force my opinions on others. I will share them gently if ask or write them on here but I will not force others the way the most vocal are trying to do.

For those of you that believe in the Bible I have this to say. God has given us free will. He gave us his son in order to allow his flawed creations into heaven as long as we ask for forgiveness. Judge not others lest you be judged. He has a plan for every soul that is created. There are lessons to be learned for all in every death and every life. If you believe all of those things then live by them. Abortion is a lesson not to the unborn but to those that get them. Most people are forever changed by the choice either way. Those that don't learn the lesson will be taught it in a different way. God has ways of teaching people what they need to know eventually.

I may not follow a church goers life but I do believe in a higher power and I do believe in the fundamental lessons you can find in just about any religion on the planet. Become enlightened and know that every life and every death has a purpose. We do not know what those are because the reasons are different for everyone effected.

Lack of Intimacy

I've been fantasizing about cuddling lately. You know the kind where one person leans against a wall, tree, or something and the other person sits between their legs and leans back against them. I miss doing that either sitting or standing. I used to stand outside with my partner at the time and wrap one arm around the waist while the other was wrapped around their shoulders/neck.

So many people in my age range are obsessed with sex that very few of them bother to learn what true intimacy is. The ability to be so comfortable with someone that you can just flop onto the couch together like a couple of puppies.

Just a random thought I wanted to share.

The United States of America

For those of you that have forgotten what our country was supposed to be follow the link below:

Constitutional Republic

What it has become since the time of the founders is through the link below:

Representative Democracy

I know they are close but there are definite differences.

Different things that are going on with me

So I've become infatuated with two different women from two different internet social places. It's actually quite amusing to think about since I haven't been like this in years. I've been adopted by a really cool woman from Southern California on Twitter. She gets my humor and we have some things in common. Back to the infatuations though... One of them is a little younger than I am and lives in town. The other is I believe from the impression that I get a little older than I am and is in the lower mid-eastern part of the United States. Now, I know that most likely one of them will end up reading this post but I am not embarrassed by what I am putting down. This blog is my place to talk about things that are going on in my head. It has in point of fact become my favorite place to do so; even above my YouTube channel.

I've named my cartoon drawing style. I'm calling it messy cartoon. It is a style that I am actually good at that I think looks good. I also haven't seen anyone else using it so far. Though I do need to start either making clever ideas or catchy one liners for them.

It's been pointed out to me that as of a week almost two weeks ago I have started showing signs of my mojo coming back. I used to be able to flirt with people without being awkward and nervous. That disappeared until recently. I think I am starting to get my groove back as it were. Though I don't know if it is a good thing since I am told that my eyes get very... intense when I am in my rhythm. *shrug*

Love at first sight

You know that feeling when you look at someone for the first time and your whole body freezes, you forget to breathe, and your heart starts to race? I want to feel like that again. It's been years since that has happened to me. The last time was in high school. We had a student teacher for American Government class. She walked in and I stopped thinking, breathing, my heart sped up. I was completely enthralled by her. I would make up questions to ask after class just so I could talk to her and be around her just a little longer. I think she knew I had a crush but she was professional about it thank goodness. She had her cop boyfriend come in and talk to the class. I wonder if they are married now.

*shrug* These are the things I think about late at night when there is nothing better to do.

Random Babble

So, I am out of things to read again. I have gone through all of the completed Alice/Bella, and Bella/Rosalie fan fictions I can find. I am thinking about going back into my personal archives and reading the B'Elanna/7of9 stories I have stored there.

I went out and got valentine's day things. It felt nice to go out and get them even if it is for friends and not a girlfriend or boyfriend. I'm not going to say what they are but I will update and do so on another post.

There is going to be a collector's edition of Duke Nukem Forever. I am SO getting it. This is going to be the last Duke Nukem game ever and the collector's edition rocks. It also has a certificate of authenticity which means that it is a true collector's item. I already put money down on the normal one so I am going to transfer that onto the collector's edition and then my grandfather is going to pay the rest for my birthday which is in the same month as the game release. Yay! By the way the collector's edition is officially called "Duke Nukem Forever Balls Of Steel Edition".

It is six days until the end of the HGTV Dream Home 2011 Sweepstakes. I have been entering into it almost everyday for the past month. It would be awesome to win it but I am not holding my breath.

Despite the fact that I grit or grind my teeth on and off all day I am only going to be wearing my guard at night. Simply because I like to sip on sodas, juice, and tea all day. I can't have any of those things with the guard in.

Christina Singh (A girl in memory) or How a part of me became

I was talking on the phone with a friend of mine today when the conversation turned to my childhood. I look back at how I was as a kid and wonder how people couldn't have known that I was at least bisexual. I played mostly with boys, loved sports, loved playing make believe with plastic swords and such, never wanted to be the damsel in distress, barely played with dolls, and always wanted to be the dad when I played house. It actually gets me to laugh about the number of times I argued with my friends that I wanted to be Casey Jones instead of April O'Neil. My logic in was that April couldn't fight and have the same kind of fun as Casey and the Ninja Turtles did. Basically I wanted to kick ass not wait to be rescued. LOL

Another big red flag was my best friend Christina Singh. She and I knew each other from around second or third grade through eighth grade. She was one of the few girls that would hang out with me during and some times after school. I found out at the end of eighth grade that she was moving and I thought I was okay with it. I was okay with it until a few weeks into summer when it finally hit me that she wasn't coming back and that I was never going to see her again. It hit me during dinner one night and I just started sobbing. When my mom asked why I was crying I remember almost wailing, "She's never coming back." and sobbing even harder. Years later when I first looked back at my friendship with Christina after I had realized I liked girls it dawned on me that I was in love with her and didn't know it. I didn't know what a lesbian or bisexual was until the summer before my freshman year of high school. Even then it was an abstract term that I didn't know applied to me. You see I didn't want to have sex with Christina or even kiss her. It didn't even dawn on me to do that. I did however want to hold her hand and walk around talking just the two of us.

Once I figured out that I liked girls that way it was a slow but ever steady journey to where I am now in my sexuality. I am bisexual but I like girls more most of the time.

So I think that in the grand scheme of things that I owe Christina Singh the honor of being my first love and the one to start it all off.

Explaination of my painting "Toxic Breather"

My painting called "Toxic Breather" is actually about how CO2 is bad for the environment (mmkay?) and yet if you measure the amount that every breathing human releases per day it beats out a lot of the other polluters out there. *shrug*

I don't believe in "Climate Change". I do believe in having harmony with the planet and doing things to improve human habitat. The Earth has been through more damage than I can believe we could do to it before. We would die out and the planet would fix itself. That is what makes Earth so unique in our solar system.

The Big Game 2

So my Steelers lost. They choked so hard! It's like they were in the locker room and decided to just give the game to the Packers. Argh! Anyway, the food was good. I've been reading more fan fiction. I have decided that I like the stories that have Bella as more than human or as a futanari. Though there are some super humorous stories that I loved just because they were intentionally written that way.

I recently bought Art Rage for my iPad. I like it because it shows texture in a way that Sketchbook Pro doesn't it also blends the colors better in my opinion. However, I am still learning to use it so my art will be hit and miss for the next little while.

The Big Game 1

So the Big Game is going on right now in the living room. I am not allowed to watch because my grandfather says I am too loud. I know he is right so I don't hold a grudge against him for it. My favorite team is playing. I have been a Steelers fan since junior high school. I hope they win again though they are making mistakes already. The food for today is going to be Cod Nuggets and French Fries from Schwan's. They are awesome though they would be even better if we had a fryer. LOL

I've been reading butt loads of fan fiction. I've made a few friends on Twitter which is cool. I like talking to people who get my humor.

I'll write again after the game is over.

A little update, talk of writing, and a hello

So, I am no longer writing to the unknown void. I have a follower! Thank you for following and I hope you enjoy the things that I end up talking about.

So, I have been reading a lot of Twilight fan fiction despite the fact that I don't like the original books. In fact the original books I believe are a bad thing for young girls to be reading considering the abusive relationship between Bella and Edward. I could go on and on about it but I frankly can't get the energy to rant about something I don't care about very much. However, the fan fiction writers make the characters awesome. I am of course mostly reading Bella with Alice, Leah, or Rosalie. I also find great joy when they talk mess about Edward. LOL

I have been listening to Pandora radio. I figured out that besides not having good friends and fun people to talk to the lack of music was contributing to my mood being in the dumps most of the time. Now, I am music on again 90% of the time and I feel better.

I've written a few lines of different dialog or story ideas. I want to sit down and write a story that has a futanari character in it. That is a japanese word.

Anyway, I'm going to go read some more. I'm about to start "Fire's Angel" by: ManaMila on
