How to Like Boys…

… Without making a complete mess of everthing.

I’ve learned a lot over the years regarding boys and crushes and how to deal with them. Honestly, I used to be just as boy crazy as the next girl, but only a few years ago, I realized something that completely changed my perspective.

I learned that boys are worth more!

Not that they’re worth more than me- just that they’re worth so much more than a crush.

I used to assume that me having a crush on a guy should be a compliment. Makes sense, right? I mean, if somebody likes a boy, the boy should feel complimented by the fact that someone is interested in him. Or at least that’s what I used to think.

The guys who are ‘crush worthy’ in my opinion are actually worth way more. The way I tend to talk about and think about guys who I have a crush on is not a way that is helpful to my character, or to theirs!

Recently I made a no-crush commitment. Now realize I am still attracted to certain guys; I didn’t stop thinking of guys as attractive when I stopped having crushes. Sometimes just not calling it a crush helps with how I think and talk about them.



Moving Forward

Hi, sorry about the lack of posts and my last accidental one. I thought that I would post something short today. 🙂

Sometimes, things in life happen that we don’t like. But that doesn’t mean that we can stop time and fix it. It doesn’t mean that we can go back in time and change it. We have to deal with it and move forward. We made our choices, and we can’t change them. As Cornelius Robinson said in the movie Meet the Robinsons, “Keep moving forward”.

Make choices that you’ll be happy with. 🙂

To all the artists out there

Okay so I love drawing. I may not be the best at it but it is something I love doing. Now you are an artist I have some advice for you. Never give up drawing. If one drawing doesn’t turn out the way you hoped don’t give up turn it into something else or look at your mistakes and learn from them. I know you are your own worst critic but never ever give up. Don’t stop drawing. I am far from the best but I love drawing so much.


Okay that’s all for now. Sorry for the lack of posts.
