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?

You think you have plans, but life ‘gets in the way’? No, life has plans for you, and life thinks you’re the one disrespecting them and getting in the way. Life will show you your story, no matter if you like it or not.

100 Happy Days - Day 46

Junk food and smiles. Just this.

Inserting a scleral contact lens.

I’m currently in the process of doing photo posts/reviews for all the contact lenses that I have, including these and the black sclera ones (covers the entire eye including the whites).

Question is, since many people have asked about how to use them, would you like a video about them? How to put them in and whatnot?

Shenanigans are happening and this space will be updated soon.

It’s good to be back.

24 hour cure time kills me though

This looks incredibly interesting… except I need someone to explain to me what is actually being done here.

Does your mother know that on a mobile device, you can just set the clock ahead a few hours to get lives (and switch it back immediately)?

#18 and #24

18. The last time you felt broken?

- Just a few months ago, when my world came crashing down. But through it, I was able to rebuild something stronger.

24. What do you want right this second?

- The same thing I want every second. To live, not just exist :)

thousandwavesdeep asked:

73. Have you ever cried because you were so happy? :-)

Yes, yes I have, and nothing can recreate the feeling. It is simply too exquisite and I am so grateful to have experienced it.

Have you? :)

100 Happy Days - Day 45

It was like Christmas in… August! A whole bunch of new contact lenses arrived, along with my cross-stitch magnifying glass/light AND the lovely Anna made me that beautiful stitched quote. She knew I had been going through a hard time previously and this beautiful gesture almost made me cry. Thank you so much, lovely lady! I shall frame it and hang it up on my wall as a reminder of not only to keep pushing on, but that I am not alone and have lovely people looking out for me <3

PS: ALSO just about finished my first cross-stitch commission! Yes, that is Serenity and Endymion from Sailor Moon. Almost done, Sil!

All the new eyeballs have arrived to join the family!
