GOD DAMN, that man is SEXY AS FUCK! Deep breaths, Mandy, deep breaths… Lol! πŸ˜‰ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Now! Forwards to our post for today!

Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester from Supernatural, has a campaign that he started. It’s called Always Keep Fighting, of AKF for short, and it started out as a way to raise awareness about depression and suicide and to raise money for the organization To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA). I didn’t find out about the campaign until he had already started selling the second t-shirt (this past year) to raise money for it, but when I did, I was ecstatic.

You see, I’ve known about TWLOHA for a very long time, back since my college days, and I even went so far as to have my (now ex)fiance design a tattoo for me based on the concept. Here, take a look:

FB_IMG_1437702307070

I’ve always loved the French language and took 3 years of it in high school and was even told in community college (after I took a medical leave of absence from real college) that I should have tested out of the lower classes and into the higher classes because I was so good at it, but I insisted on staying in the lower classes because I didn’t remember a lot of the basics, contrary to what my teacher though (lol!). Haha.

L’amour means “love” in French, obviously, and once every year, TWLOHA encourages people to write the word “love” on their arms in support of people who cut and self-harm and are suicidal and depressed, to show those people that there are people out there in the world who love and support them, even if they don’t actually know them personally.

I just decided to take it a step further and get it permanently done on me. And I wanted it to be done by the man I love and I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with, as a symbolism of love. Also, the heart at the end is supposed to be shaped like a “teardrop” or a “blood drop”, and can be taken either way, to symbolize the cutting and depression, because I have obvious cutting scars on that arm (because obviously, I myself was a cutter back before my bipolar was officially diagnosed and I was being properly treated and medicated).

This tattoo was done in December of 2010. So this December will mark 5 years since I got my first tat! πŸ˜‰ And a very meaningful one at that!

So of course I was DEEPLY touched that Jared from my FAVORITE TV series EVER had decided to choose THIS specific organization to back. And so I bought the second shirt from his campaign.

This is when I first got the shirt. It says “Moose & Squirrel Say Always Keep Fighting”, and the face on the left hand side of the picture is Jared’s and the face on the right hand side is Jensen’s. You can imagine my excitement at Jensen being on this shirt (squee!!!!!!!!!). πŸ˜‰ “Moose & Squirrel” is a reference from SPN, for those not in the know. It’s what Crowley, the King of Hell, calls the boys, Jared/Sam being “Moose” (because he’s SO FREAKING TALL) and Jensen/Dean being “Squirrel” (Dunno why that name was picked, actually, lol).

I was MORE than happy to help support TWLOHA and Jared’s campaign and Jared himself and I love the shirt. ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ (I am also wearing my Rowena cosplay wig in the picture, so that’s why you see red hair trailing down, lol! I’m a dirty blonde…a VERY “dirty” blonde…. πŸ˜‰ )

And then Jared did a THIRD campaign, a third shirt, and I just HAD to get that one too, because I had missed the first one and I’ll be DAMNED if I miss out on any others, lol! So I did, I got the third.

Again, the “Moose” reference is there, with the horns, and the candle is there because, at a convention, a fan surprised Jared by passing out “Always Keep Fighting” LED tealight candles to everyone who entered the hall for the SPN panel and at a specified time, everyone held them up, to symbolize unity in supporting Jared, and he was floored and stunned and overwhelmed. ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Well, all of the above was just kinda a backstory to preface what I’m about to tell you next: I reached out for help regarding dealing with my illnesses.

I called my local mental health clinic, that’s SUPPOSED to give free mental health care but might try to charge ME since I have actual insurance (ugh!), to try to make an initial appointment to talk to them about getting involved in their Dialectical Behavior Therapy program, a therapy that is supposed to be good for things like bipolar and anxiety and depression and whatnot. I have a book on it in regards to bipolar, but I’ve never really read it. Oops. :/

But regardless, I’m trying to get involved now, at the insistence of a friend who works for the clinic and my psychiatrist (and I think even my regular therapist), so that’s something.

I’ve been afraid to do it because I’m afraid it won’t work, that it’ll fail to help me, and I’ll be left dealing with the hell that is my life and my mind all on my own once more, or that these people will be incompetent and just makes things worse for me. Sigh. That last part is a very real fear in these parts of town. It’s known to happen. Blah.

But at least I’m trying, right? That’s what counts.

I’m going to “Always Keep Fighting”, like Jared says to, because that’s what I have to do. You can’t give up, you have to keep going. It’s a lesson I’m learning the hard way, but at least I’m learning it, ya know? So what I’m saying to you is:

ALWAYS KEEP FIGHTING!!!!!!!

End of 2015 Goals

So I was inspired by my dear friend KimiΒ who recently posted about how she had made a post a year ago, listing goals she wanted to achieve before she turned 30, and in this recent post, she was going back and reviewing how she had done in actually making those goals a reality over the year that had passed.

I’ve decided to list the goals I would like to achieve by the end of this current year, though I am also currently working on a 30 Things I Would Like To Do Before I Turn 30 list, but I’m only 27 right now, so I’ve got a little over 2 years left before turning 30, lol (my birthday’s in February πŸ˜‰ ).

So here it is! My “End of 2015 Goals” list!

  • Do at least one Jamicure with the Jams I have from Jamberry
  • Keep my nails grown out and well-kept
  • Return the costumes I borrowed from my church for GiShWhEs this past year (but didn’t get to use, boo!) to my church
  • Master (or at least get it down decently) the technique of weaving charms into my cotton string knot bracelets
  • Get my hair cut how I want it and maybe even highlighted (and keep up the look)
  • Get all my clothes that are still out from when I moved back in put away in drawers or hung up in my closet
  • Host my first giveaway on this blog!
  • Get good pictures of me taken in my Casual Femme Castiel Cosplay
  • Have most (if not all) of my poems typed up and titled, for my book
  • Get with Chuck, the tattoo artist who did my first tattoo and who I would like to do my other tattoo ideas as well, about tat designs ideas I am considering (either the anti possession tats on either side of my collar bone area or my “ShAckles” tat idea that Diedre is currently designing) and find out prices and decide on which design I’d like to have done (or both! If the price is right… πŸ˜‰ ) and tentatively set up an appointment for either my birthday or for in December 2015, depending on the tattoo(s) I decide on (and that will mostly depend on price); or, maybe save the money I would spend on tattoos if they will be too expensive and get them made into temporary tattoos for SeaCon and use that money that I would have spent on tattoos on SeaCon tickets
  • Get with my good friend Kayce, who is paying for and funding most of my trip to Seattle, about the trip plans and solidify said plans and make all the necessary arrangements, such as scheduling the flights and whatnot (UPDATE: As of now, we’re planning on having me fly out on March 13, which would have been my 12th anniversary with my ex, so as to try to help me not have a mental breakdown on that day and that’ll have me out in Seattle on Kayce’s sister Lizzy’s birthday, which is the next day, the 14th, and Lizzy is also a good friend of my mine, and that would be wonderful to be out there on Lizzy’s birthday to celebrate with her and everyone else and during that time of the month when things are so so hard for me. :/ )
  • Buy my ticket for SeaCon
  • Buy the Jensen photo-op and the Misha autograph tickets
  • Successfully participate in the AKF Gift Exchange
  • If booked my tattoo appointment for December, get my tattoo
  • Finish my “first year” of my Gratitude Journal
  • Will add to this as I think of more… Lol! And by “add to this”, that means I’ll make a whole new post with these goals plus the new goals. πŸ˜‰

My Current “Logo”- The Backstory

So my “Catwoman Me” logo was a commissioned piece of artwork done by that artist Tim Shinn, who was attending a convention in North Carolina called Heroes Con and that I was hoping to attend as well, so I commissioned the work from him, hoping to be able to meet him and pay him in person.

But then I couldn’t make it. And I told him I probably wouldn’t be able to make it (my ex is a douche, what can I say?), but he continued to do the drawing anyway and allowed me to pay him through PayPal. It was $50 well spent. I have the drawing now and can’t wait to frame it and hang it on my wall.

He was really good about sending me the progression of the drawing as it went along. I had told him I wanted a picture of me as Catwoman with my cat Mango in it with me, and I gave him reference pictures of things I liked and wanted, and he came up with the logo you have seen all over this blog and things associated with this blog.

Here is the first draft of what the drawing looked like:

CatwomanMeandMango

I loved it! I was ecstatic with it from the moment I saw this. I was BEYOND blown away by just how GREAT a job he had done and I was so so pleased!

So then he sent me this:

CatwomanMeandMango2

And I was even MORE thrilled, if that could even be possible! I thought this was the finished product and I loved it as it was, but he said he still had some shading and stuff to do, and I was like “What?! This isn’t the FINISHED PRODUCT?! And it looks THIS FABULOUS?! HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!” Lol!

And then of course, came THIS WONDERFUL PIECE OF ARTISTRY:

CatwomanMeandMango3

I am TOTALLY in love with this picture. I mean, seriously. I have a DEEP love of Catwoman, and have since I was a kid. She’s always been my favorite comic book character, and I have, like, a literal shrine to her. I even own her whip. Lol. And I have always wanted to be Selina Kyle. And Tim granted my wish! He MADE ME INTO CATWOMAN! WITH MY BABY MANGO!!! *squees and flails hands* ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

I intend to use him again for MORE artwork! I have two other cats (or well, I DID have two other cats, one had to be put down last year and that totally broke my heart into a million billion tiny pieces and it’s just not an experience I’m able to talk about without a lot of anger and pain…) that I would like to get me as famous cat-related female characters from comic books (or other stuff) with… So he’s got some work coming his way when I can financially swing it.

But as you can see, he is TOTALLY AWESOME AND YOU SHOULD GIVE HIM ALL YOUR BUSINESS!!!!!! πŸ˜‰

And that is the story behind how my “logo” came into existence. πŸ˜€

Also…10 DAYS!!!! ONLY 10 MORE DAYS!!!! “IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!” SING IT EUROPE!!!!!!!

In an update about the Gift Exchange, I bought part of the presents I’m giving to my person last night, as well as ordering the Jerk & Bitch Ring Friendship Necklaces for Emily and I! I’m super excited about both purchases! πŸ˜€ And I also found something that I already have that I’m going to give to my Secret Santa person. πŸ˜‰ It’s cute and I hope she likes it! ❀

 

Peace!

Gettin’ Shiz Done, Yo!

H’okay, so…

I got ALL my previous posts ALL tagged up and everythang now! Yahz! I feels so accomplished! πŸ˜‰

I am rewarding myself with a LARGE plate of spaghetti! πŸ˜‰ Haha!

giphy

Oh Jensen, you sexy motherfucker… Mmmm….. πŸ˜‰

I’m terribly terribly excited about the idea of getting my SPN/Jensen related tattoos! Hopefully sooner, rather than later. I hope to get the anti possession tats and the “ShAckles” tattoo BEFORE I head to Seattle in March. I’m so giddy and impatient to see what Diedre comes up with for the Infinity Heart Handcuffs part of the “ShAckles” tat design! Hehe! As soon as I get that part, I can go to my tattoo artist, Chuck, and start talking with him about prices and placement and sizing and all of that, and then can make an appointment for when I’d like to get either one (or both!) of the tat design ideas done! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

I will be SURE to keep ALL of you updated on every little detail of my journey to getting these tats permanently marked on me for the rest of my living existence. πŸ˜€

I’m also reading Pepi’sΒ book, Geek Anthropology of Loki’s ArmyΒ (Kindle)(Print), about the character of Loki and the actor who plays him in the recent Thor and Avengers movies, Tom Hiddleston, and the fandom that surrounds both of them. It’s pretty interesting so far and I’ve barely begun it! But I plan on writing a review of it once I finish it and also posting some pics of my “Casual Lady Loki Cosplay” that I have assembled along with my review, to show my support of “Loki’s Army” (the fandom)! πŸ˜‰ So keep an eye out for that! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

I’m also trying to work with a small business owner who does fandom stuffs to customize a really cute multi-fandom charm bracelet called: Unite the Fandoms! I know all the charms I want on it, from the charms that I’ve seen that she has available from all her bracelets, I just need to convey to her exactly what I want and figure out how much it’s going to cost and all of that. πŸ˜€ Very excited about this! This is super terrific in my mind because it’ll allow me to convey my love of my various fandoms without having to wear a TON of different jewelry or whatnot to do so. Yahz!

And just for good measure, once again…

Yeah, baby, shake it…. πŸ˜‰

A B C, 1 2 3, Baby You And Me

Holy SHIT. I have been CRAVING Chef Boyardee “ABC’s & 123’s with Meatballs” for, like, fucking EVER recently and my GLORIOUS mother went out and bought me some! I am happily happily HAPPILY gorging myself on a can of said cuisine at this very moment. Deliciousness. But not nearly as delicious as Jensen…

FUCKMEFUCKME

Just saying… πŸ˜‰

OMG, that man is SO FUCKING HAWT! I NEEDZ HIS BABIES IN MY WOMB!!!!! IT IS CRYING OUT FOR HIS SEED!!!!!! LOLS!!!!!!! I crack myself up, which is good, because I’m pretty sure no one else thinks I’m NEARLY as funny as I find myself to be. Lol. πŸ˜‰

But seriously? I NEED to fuck him. Just saying. πŸ˜‰ ❀

Anywhoo…

I’m terribly excited about an AKF (Always Keep Fighting) Gift Exchange that my friend Emily is running on FB. And we found out our picks for our person who we are gifting to yesterday and I’m SUPER excited about who I got because she’s actually an acquaintance of mine who I’ve been befriending recently and I’m really happy to be able to be gifting her things that she might really like and also a few things I just want to give her. πŸ˜‰ I’ll probably just keep adding to her gift as it goes and then send it as it gets closer to Christmas. πŸ˜€

I met Emily through an AKF group and we bonded over an AKF meet-up that she started planning and I got in on helping her with the planning and now we’ve become great friends! She’s absolutely wonderful and I’m sending her a little present, a friendship necklace, to commemorate our experiences with all this AKF stuff together! The necklace is a two part necklace, like most friendship necklaces are, except this one is, of course, SPN related. Haha. Check it, yo!

10383128_hi

Supernatural Jerk & Bitch Ring Necklace Set

She’s getting the “Jerk” one, because that’s what Sam says, and she’s more like Sam in our relationship, being that she’s more calm and reasonable and tries to work things out with people and be nice to them. I, one the other hand, get the “Bitch” one, because, well, I AM a bitch (hehe!), and plus, Dean says “Bitch” and I’m more like Dean because I’m the hot-head who flies off the handle and curses up a storm and loses it constantly over people being stupid. Lol.

To show you how absolute sweet and adorable she is, when I told her what I was doing regarding the necklaces and the explanation behind it, she told me she was crying. ❀ I loves her.

I’m also sending her some sexual related things, because that’s just how I am, I like to gift my friends with fun stuff to play with! πŸ˜‰

Oh, I KNEW I had forgotten something cute and adorable in my giraffe collection, but couldn’t remember what it was until a little while ago, so here it is:

20150924_13560720150924_140450

It’s a flash giraffe! Haha! A slightly off rhyme. πŸ˜‰ He’s so cute!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ I loves him! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ Hehe!

My favorite thing about him, though, is that it’s his ASS that is the flash-drive! So you have an ass sticking out of your computer when you use him. Lol! It cracks me up. I especially love putting stuff on it that I need to have printed off elsewhere and taking it to them and handing the sales person the ass of the giraffe and just grinning like the Cheshire Cat because it’s so funny that I’m handing them an ass. Haha! They literally “put my ass into it”… πŸ˜‰ AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Also, happy Bisexual Equality/Awareness Week!

bi

I changed my profile pic on FB to the above picture to support all my bi friends and potentially family members who just haven’t said anything yet. Lol. Ya never know, ya know what I mean? πŸ˜‰

AND 11 DAYS!!!!!!!! ONLY 11 MORE DAYS UNTIL MY PRECIOUSSSSSSS RETURNS!!!!!! I CANNOT WAITS!!!!!!

tiltmeme17

Haha. I’m going to be posting that meme a LOT until the premiere, and probably afterwards too, I’m not gonna lie… πŸ˜‰

I really need to go back through all of my posts so far, before I get too many more that it gets too overwhelming of a task to do, and put “tags” in all of them, because that’s one thing I’ve been failing to do so far throughout this process. I do it on my OTHER blog (Sex & The Holy City), but for some reason, I just didn’t start doing it with this one… I honestly don’t know why. *shrugs* So I shall rectify my error and henceforth correct my behavior! πŸ˜€

Or, well, I’ll do it tomorrow… Haha. πŸ˜‰

Peace, my dears!

(This inspires me because I’ve been on the bandwagon of believing animals are just as emotionally capable as humans are, and that means mentally as well, so that means they can suffer exactly the same ways we do, and the fact that science is now moving in the direction to prove that means that we can in fact help those animals who DO suffer from the same ailments we do.
