Oh.... My dear sweet lord... What the hell is wrong with me?
You're probably here for the first time... let me back up.
In case you somehow forgot the URL to this website, my name is Amargeaux Rai, I'm a quirky ARTISTE who also loves to write, and share my work and eat chocolate, and... well...
I haven't been the most faithful of writers.
And usually I put some sort of quirky little thing right here that highlights how cute and funny and adorable and delightfully modest I am, but I'm not going to do that.
Right now, I want to write this as an apology to myself and to the people who were reading this and got no explanation as to why I just stopped.
*ahem* *deep breath*
I didn't mean to just stop writing... It wasn't my fault, I was abducted by aliens and they borrowed my fingers for about six months, so I couldn't type anything!! REALLY!!!
I was in the middle of coming up with the most amazing, informative, most beautifully scripted post that anyone's ever seen, 'cause I was like,
"oh no!!! There are people out there who, like, need information on how to make the next Mona Lisa, and have no one to turn to! AHHH."
or something like that,
and then this beam of light came through my bedroom window, and I, like, blacked out and stuff...
Next thing I know, I'm holding a fork with two hands... or palms... you get the point.
They promised that they'd bring them back when they were done, but what those bastards DIDN'T tell me is what they were going to use them for...
... Don't ask me, they still haven't told me, but all I know is that now I'm getting some really weird mail.... that suddenly disappears mysteriously from my room.
The moral of the story; if you suddenly see something that looks like a floating cow in the sky shine this bright beaming pink light into your window at you, and you start sneezing (DON'T LAUGH! THIS IS AN INDICATOR), This is NOT a searchlight! RUN! But don't forget your laptop.... those things are expensive.
Really!!! The aliens only Just gave them back!! This is a real thing, I don't -- I don't make excuses. *ahem*
Okay, Okay, I'm done.
Had to get the juices flowing... hehe.
Really, I just want to take this opportunity to go over ways that I've.... what's the word... compartmentalized my life so that I'm more productive. And since I know that there are other people who are just as mortifyingly overwhelmed as I am about 99.99999% of the time (the .00001% is when I'm brushing my teeth.... I enjoy the minty flavour), I thought that sharing what I've created for myself may be good for you too.
I also want to let you know what I'm like, what I'm up to and YOU lovely art freaks have to look forward to!
SO let's go!!
First, About Me...
I also feel like that was a really long run-on sentence, and I'm not changing it, because I'm not ashamed of it.
Also, I love using the whole world around me as inspiration, and illuminating that.
Which beings me to --
My style af work (lol, I meant "of" work! I'm keeping it. )
I really need to take more pics of my work.
What to look forward to on this lovely blog...
