Have you ever had a near-death experience? 

What is the scariest movie you have ever seen?

What is something you're really scared of? 

#2026337 Minimalism

Posted by Kate on 24 July 2018 - 06:04 AM

As Eddie Vedder once said:

"We have a greed with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all, you won't be free"

Daniel and I fully plan to move into a smaller, a little more off the grid, cabin-style home, once the kids are old enough to go out into the world on their own. Although we're both not very materialistic, I do hoard clothing and food but I think that's a side effect of growing up poor and not having my own clothes or enough food to eat. We want to own a good sized piece of land and have minimal belongings, besides a couple sentimental things to pass down to our children when we die, but with meaning behind them. So we have nesting dolls from when Daniel was deployed to Ukraine, a hand-carved jewellery box, just pretty things from various countries and occasions that we have collected over our time together. I think once it's just the two of us it will be a lot easier to maintain a minimalistic lifestyle.

Well, you're fine unless you escaped a near-death experience :)

How do I know if I have or haven't though! In the movie they cheated death but I don't remember if they were always aware they had or not? I've been in car accidents, haemorrhaged after birth, and got lost on a dinky motorboat on the ocean over night during a severe storm with zero visibility, no gas, paddles, or lifejackets. That's my list.  

#2025970 Uncomfortable Truths

Posted by Kate on 09 July 2018 - 06:20 AM

I'm a massive asshole. I fall back on this a lot to get out of social situations that I don't want to be in, because it's easier than actually socializing.

At least you're not a penize

ART FIGHT IS COMING SO I'm working on something:





I've been waiting for my new pen to arrive since February so I haven't done anything. This is my first work since then and I had to use a mouse, which is why I went the pixel road :p this is harddddd

Omggggg I can't even begin to explain how impressed I am with how much your art has progressed in the last few years since you started. Love it!

#2022312 Trying to quit smoking

Congrats and well done! It really is so tough. I'm proud of you for sticking with it.

Thank you! I really think it's for good this time :) I have no desire to smoke again.

#2022297 Trying to quit smoking

Posted by Kate on 21 April 2018 - 10:30 AM

What do you think worked best for you? My partner is trying to quit.... for months now.

And you too

For me not avoiding those situations has helped. The issue I always had was that all my friends smoke, my mom smokes, I had a lot of social habits where I smoked. Talking on the phone, I smoked. Visiting friends and family I smoked. Cruising around in my best friends car, we smoked. When I would try to quit, I'd avoid those situations and ended up isolating myself almost entirely because it turns out I smoked in almost every single social situation lol I'd stay away from them until I felt "comfortable" but then I'd be around them and give in almost immediately because I was lonely, depressed, and still craving them. This time instead of avoiding them, I put myself to the test and inserted myself into those situations as much as possible. The more I did that, the stronger my will power became. It worked, I never crave them anymore and I am constantly around people who smoke.
