Good morning!!!!!! [Apr. 29th, 2004|10:04 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Lots of work to do today!

(Of course, I probably say that EVERY day....)

I'm working on a private commission so I do have my webcam pointed at the wall, lol. I'll hopefully finish it today though, and when I'm done I'll get started on Gemini and let you all know when the webcam is back =)

I'd also like to finish up some more of the Limited Edition Canvas prints of my other little Gothlings!!!! I have some additional canvas prints I need to hand embellish from other orders as well.

I'm so excited - Kachina and baby Theodore are coming to visit - they will be here on Saturday!!!!! And then the week after that, my grandma, aunt Lisa, uncle Kevin and cousin Ariel are coming down to visit for awhile too! And then I'm going up to Kansas City at the end of May (and then Wichita) of course for my cousin's wedding (burntorangehorn& malikasaghir! They're already married of course, but this is their "official" wedding)! Kachina & Theo are going to come back with me on the plane and visit here again. And then James (Kachina's husband) is hopefully going to fly down to join them and to help us move into our new house!!! Whew!!!!!

Okay - off to work!

Just think how happy you'll be once you get moved though! It will be a much nicer (and I'm sure safer!) place. Once you get settled in I'm sure it will be worth all of the hassles =)

I'm really three people, all in one body. We take turns - one paints, one answers email, and one spends time with family.

Or something like that.....

Hmm . . . I'll have to try that sometime. I don't think my people would be civil enough to take turns though, especially the artwork side. She would want ALL the time. LJ girl is definitely fighting with her now! Damn women . . . always want all of my time.

It's great that it works for you though.

This has nothing to do with art.........Just something I wrote that I feel very strongly about...

Dark And Twisted Society
I am so sick of seeing diet advertisements on the T.V every fucken five minutes and in the magazines. That's why so many people have issues with food and the way they look, that's one of the reasons why I am so obsessed. They basically saying if you're not 98 pounds then you're fat and that's not acceptable. I know some people want to loose weight because they may be over weight, but the obsession of my being too thin is just out of hand. No one has the perfect weight, body, or face. Unless you're fucken rich and can afford to get sucked, tucked, larger boobs, burn off wrinkles, and fix your face with crazy surgery. It's really depressing I am trying to stop my obsession with not getting fat and just being okay with my body and weight then I have to see this all day long. Girls these days are so thin that they don't have any curves or boobs, they have a child's body. The even sader thing is that men find that sexy and think all females should look like that. It makes me sick and weep on the inside because it's just horriable.

Has the world became so obsessed with beauty and being perfect so much that is actually killing our spirits? If you want to eat healthy that's fine because I eat healthy try to at least. Ofcourse, I still have bread, cheese, eggs, skim milk, cookies, cakes, and homemade sweets. I do admit that I have alot of low fat etc. products in my cabnits and since I am vegetarian now I eat vegys and fruit more often along with some pasta. But that's my diet I still eat carbs and some junk food I am always baking so I can maintain my weight, with all these new dietes out you can't have carbs or maybe 20 carbs per week. That's not good because that's where you get your enegry at. People have said to loose weight on those diets, but I also known people who have felt dizzy, week, and almost passing out because of those dites. There is no perfect body I do admit I wish I were perfect and beautiful, but this is me and I just have to learn to accept that. I think about food all the time, what should I eat, what shouldn't, how much, feeling guilty sometimes and it just drives me fucken crazy!! I wish I weren't like that and just could eat without thinking about it. Part of that comes from when I was little I was a chubby girl my brother would tease me, "Eat Again Fatty, Fatty" My father picked at my mom so I always saw her dieting then all you see on advertisements is loose weight don't be fat! Who needs to eats it's not like you really need it, would you rather be beautiful and every man's dream than have energy and food in your body? Promoting too thin is basically promoting eating disorders, it's okay to puke it up, to not eat for three days and live off water, excerise until you pass out. That is not okay, models are giving women even male models the wrong expression, the society is demented and not in a good way either. Anyways, I feel better since I got that out........
