I'm a Glass Child


Fragile, crystal, and translucent.

I'm Jamie. I adore dolls, collecting gemstones and minerals, reading the odd book or two, documentaries, astronomy, paleontology, the supernatural and paranormal, and music. I write it, sing it, play it, record it, and emote through it. It speaks for me when I stumble yet again with my speech.

Sometimes, I'm comfortably, unmistakably, strongly sure of who I am and what I live for, of who I am to be and the goals I set for myself. Other times, it all gets shaken up and shattered into a million little pieces and I find myself floating and struggling to find it again.

And I love the madness so much.

I just have to wake up and escape out of my stasis and cease to merely 'exist'.

What about you?

The little spider homes are all finished and awaiting their new little masters :)

100 Happy Days - Day 64

So happy to acquire (and re-acquire) some books I have been longing for. Psychology and The Universe from the 50 Ideas series, The James Herriot Collection (six in one!) and two copies of The Exorcist, one of my favourite novels. One paperback, and one hardcover Book Club edition.

100 Happy Days - Day 63

Uh… guys? There is suddenly a big monkey outside my house and my cat wants to investigate. Ha. Made me laugh.

100 Happy Days - Day 62

The rainstorm and the wind gathered the leaves in a cold, beautiful dance.

100 Happy Days - Day 61

3DS XL. Double the Pokemon fun.

100 Happy Days - Day 60

He came home and our time was well spent.

My bunny bag that I managed to break the zip of at Bon Odori yesterday.

100 Happy Days - Day 59

Bon Odori 2014 was a lovely time! Copious amounts of Japanese food, tea, and candy was acquired, and much fun was had. I did so enjoy that yukata. Mark this as another good memory for the year!

PS: Thank you to Silvy and Lina for the yukata and obi!

PPS: Terence does not look too happy about what Silvy has done to his heart, though…

Framing the finished piece.

100 Happy Days - Day 58

When Coeur de Pirate posted this from the real/namesake location of the song title, it meant more to me than I can explain.

100 Happy Days - Day 57

I have been acquiring more cross stitch patterns. This is part of an enormous Harry Potter project I am excited to attempt!

And now, for some tea.

And I shall buy myself roses and comforting cream tea. Read books full of wonder and laugh in the mirror. I shall take care of this body, heart, mind. I shall love myself first.
