Paris oil painting on canvas by Leonid Afremov by Leonidafremov

Can Your Heart Still Break? by BabyDollB

I grew up in a time where being a geek labeled you as an outcast, and not the cool sort of outcast that made you look like some sort of misunderstood hero like it does in the comic books, but the kind that targeted you for wedgies and bloody noses. I've always been super weird, I never expected geek culture to become chic, but I guess we have The Big Bang Theory, IT Crowd, and The Guild to thank for that. At least I fit in better now, even though I'm still socially awkward as hell.

I'm a Pokemon collector; I was trying to start an adults-only Pokemon League at one of the local gaming stores.

I own a PS3, but I'm more of a PC gamer. I gave up most of my consoles for emulators, so I usually play my console games on my gaming computer. One of my favorite consoles is the N64, and I have a couple of retrolink controllers set up on an emulator so my friends and I can play Goldeneye, Mario Kart, or SmashBros.

I'm an obsessive series watcher. When I find a show I like, I'll watch the entire thing in one sitting, if I can, then re-watch it and use it as background noise when I'm drawing, painting, or working on a paper for school.

I've almost completed my master-plan for survival in the impending Zombpocalypse, there are several holes in the plan, but it's nearing completion. I've also been working on an economic recovery plan for Mexico; I've played enough StarCraft that I'm bound to succeed, Mexicans are like the Zerg, right? (I'm not racist, I'm funny.)

Pain in the knee

Fri Feb 20, 2015, 5:19 PM


Copyright 2010 Journal Skin by Airamneleb


I broke my knee when I was 19, and lost a dime-sized chunk of bone when my body decided to cannibalize it rather than heal the fracture. It's been nearly 8 years, and every year it's gotten progressively worse. Now it's affecting my same-side hip.

Last weekend I went to SLC with my boyfriend to celebrate our 3rd anniversary, and we did a lot of walking. We went to the Aviary and walked around for nearly two hours, then lunch, then the Aquarium and walked around for nearly three hours. Now, I can't even walk without my knee-brace. The pain has grown exponentially worse since last weekend, and I had to take 4,000 mg of ibuprophen just to get the swelling to go down. I'm planning on going to the student-clinic next friday to see if they can give me an update on the condition of my knee, and check on the wear and tear this is forcing on my hip.

I estimate that at the current rate of degredation, I might have to start using a wheelchair by the end of 2016. 

I really need a replacement, and I'm not happy.

Thank you! I'm probably not doing much. A friend of mine and I are going to get some lunch and then possibly leave room for cake, and then go back to our individual classes. Two more weeks until summer break!!

I see you like critiques.
I would much appreciate it if you could give my broken heart project some of your critical analysis.

So, that painting in critique asks if my heart can still break?
Yes damn it.  I have been broken down into inspirational despair.
I just finished my latest ceramic project called Broken Heart of Steal that describes my pain.
I still need to fire and glaze it.  I'm much better now. 
Anyway, I think you'd appreciate it.  I left my heart in KilnArtist.  You should definitely check it out.
