A new beginning

Luck of lucks, I thought to myself, class is cancelled! Thank God for it, too... after that fallen paper tower project in 3D art class I thought I wouldn't be able to bear the rest of the day. I could have gone home early from school, but I realized that I had some studying to catch up on for my cancelled class, so I did. The library can be a very fun place.

Why, a few weeks ago I was at the library sitting in a comfy blue chair right next to another comfy blue chair occupied by a sleeping guy. In his lap he had a really thick text open, and there was a very troubled look upon his face, not the kind you'd expect from someone who's sleeping. I felt sorry for him, so I wrote him a note that said "Good luck with whatever it is you're studying. Best wishes, cheers!" And left it beside him before he woke up. It made me feel happy.

I had a similar experience today. After my library run I sat on a stone bench in front of Jody Maroni's to read... I only sat there because I loved the smell of their food. After a while a tall, black man on a cell phone came to sit next to me. He looked extremely busy: on his phone, struggling to pull out some folders and a laptop. A gust of wind swept by and sent his documents flying across the small, shrub-covered hill behind the bench. I immediately stopped, marked my page and reached over, but he said, "No no honey, don't sacrifice y'self! Don't sacrifice y'self, I'll get it!"
I was hesitant. Could he really? He had two of the documents already, it was just that last one left, just a little out of reach. The corner of the page curled and flapped dangerously in the wind, so I said, "It's okay, really!" And stepped into the shrubbery to fish it out. I heard him speak into his phone, "Aw, aw no way! She my hero! Nah nah, this little girl got my paper and she's my hero! Thank you, thank you so much! That's the most important one too, wow! My hero!"

All right, so maybe he was just saying that for saying's sake, but... I swell up at the thought of being a hero.

I've had several blogs before, mostly for the sake of having a blog. I currently keep one on Myspace, but really, people only blog on Myspace for the attention (so I put the attention-getters up there). I do have a Vox page which I do not use anymore simply because I don't know what to do with it. Call me fickle, but here's a fresh start. I have sort of a purpose in mind for this one.

This is going to be my art/sketch blog / blog for things I wouldn't want so many people to read about. Like that incident with the flying documents? I wanted to write about that just because it made me feel good. Other people wouldn't understand that. Many of them would probably think I was showing off my deeds or whatever.

I'll try to post a new piece of art or sketch at least every week. Once I get into the full swing of things, I might even make it every two days. Until then, au revoir!
