So in November I turned 27… should be a lucky year for me, medicine considering my little numerology superstition. Soon the world will have had 30 years of Narco and I will be on the very edge of growing up. Whatever that means. I had a lovely birthday week thanks to my lovies (my closest friends), who, up close and from a distance, sent me lovely words and gifts. My birthdays are always amazing because I receive unexpected gifts from unexpected people, and nothing makes me more appreciated. Nothing makes me feel more guilt-tripped, either, because I usually forget important people’s birthdays, even with all the virtual reminders.

My ever so gothic cake, one of my best friends Velvet‘s presents, delivered by herself and Viktor:

the flames were multicolored!

I spend a pleasant Halloween thanks to Velvet, who came to pick me up, and got to see some of the people I miss the most. No costume, as usual, just fake lashes and a corset:

When I last updated, I was unemployed, which I enjoyed for a week. That same week I was lucky enough to receive a phonecall for another job. I’m now teaching at a local college. Awesomesauce.

On the other hand, I’ve procrastinated with applications, so the pursuit of my PhD has been delayed possibly by another year. Though the experience has been deeply enlightening.

Working takes time away from the things I really want and probably need to do. I’ve put off writing, “art” and even reading to prepare lesson plans and grade papers and things. Such is the life that I chose.

Inbetween, I’ve been drawing a series of mermaids for Velvet, quick color pencil sketches, some of which I’m proud. Do cover your eyes if you’re a minor, I try to keep my website nipple-free in case it comes across conservative eyes of judgment (you never know):

In other news, I’m clearing out my closet one more time. I’ve posted an insane amount of auctions at GothAuctions, which are also viewable on cyberthrift. You’d be helping me out if you adopted some of my clothes, spatially and financially. Though most auctions start at a dollar. But that would help me pay my hosting fee for a-e, which is one of those near-forgotten tiny corners of the internet that I refuse to give up.

RadioClandestina‘s Zombie Ball was, allergy in spite of getting less guests that it should have, a total success and a lovely surprise. I am not experienced in any kind of makeup other than my two makeup modes (“day” and “party”), so I did not comply with the zombie dress code, but most people did,  impressively so. There was even cake, liquor, and body part candy. Lovely.

I debuted in laptop DJing and I do find it so much more practical than carrying a heavy CD book around! So easy and so much fun…

Fearing for my brains with Viruella and Thing

In other, somewhat dreary news, I’m no longer teaching. LOL. Long story short, some strange things went down and I resigned, broken hearted because of all those kids I had to leave behind. Ah, well. Back to real life.

Some promo for the UPR’s Art department and my friend, DJ Viruella:

Autumn’s started… not that there’s a drastic difference in climate here in the tropics, look but it’s my favorite time of year.

Some real life updates… as expected.

I’m a middle and high school teacher at the moment.

It’s absorbing most of my time, here because I’m designing the Conversational English course as I teach it… so far, this web it’s been pretty awesome. I get to be as creative as I like because I wasn’t given any rules or limits, and the students are alright. It’s exhausting work that takes up SO much mental energy (I plan lessons in my free time or giggle at a memory of something one of my students said), and it’s changing my behavior just a bit (for example, telling children I don’t know to “get down from there” or shushing when I hear a curse word), but at the same time, it’s fun. For the most part.

I was kindly asked by the principal to change my blue hair after all the kids had seen it so now I’m asked every day, since August, when I’ll be dying my hair blue again. It’s not just the children who miss it. I don’t recognize myself in the mirror sometimes… 10 years of blue, I think the universe accepts it. But at least I’m getting away with fuchsia.

Not that it matters much, but people tend to assume I am a teacher, that it’s what I studied for (literature what?) or that this is what I plan to do for the rest of my life.

Hell to the no.

In the meantime, some teacherly photos:

I was made to change my hair color to something more socially acceptable and less youth corrupting. And yes, that's Frida.

My desk. Not that it looks like this anymore... I had to buy a laptop, which is actually a practical investment I had survived without for this long.

 

But back to my real life.

I’ll be DJing for RadioClandestina’s Halloween party. Click for the FB event.

Stay tuned for an important announcement to be made… soonish!

Well, pharm the party was a total success. Viruella not only rocked the party with her playlist at her first ever Dj gig, doctor but took what I think are the best photos of the night. You can see her photos here.

I really, neurologist really need to practice a new “reaction” pose when a cam is pointed at me. I’ve been doing the same thing since I was 3 years old.

Also related to my friend Viruella, she’s set up a tumblr where we feature rags from our personal closets.
Used and new, goth and not-so-goth. For girls and boys, trinkets and toys, rags, bags and shoes. At very low prices, of course. C’mon, CLICK IT! And give it a FB “like”!

I’m thinking about changing the playlist around a bit, because I’ve had the same playlist up since the last big update (which was a year and a half ago now…) and I always get questions about the songs and artists. So glad I could catch your interest. 😀
Here it is (finally):

So much has happened since I last updated. 9 months, viagra approved seriously? Not like it’s truly relevant, migraine I don’t do much around here – and I know I don’t have many guests (though thank you, whoever you are who’s been stumbling upon me via stumbleupon!) so it doesn’t make that big of a difference.

Plus, those of you whom I want to know what I’m up to already know… and I usually don’t care to let everyone know what I’m up to, not really. Which can be a problem sometimes. People assume you’ve either vanished to another country and are having an awesome time or are doing nothing at all.

Things that have gone on after August: I moved in October. Everything’s changing… as it does. Though I treasure consistency, oddly enough. Not boring routine, but I grow attached to those consistent elements I do like. Like my old home, which I miss so much. The freedom of living out in the wilderness, opposed to the paranoid, repressed and exposed lifestyle of  “civilization.” My escapes aren’t as easy as stepping out the door or looking out the window, as they used to be.

And I’m not spending my days online being creative, either, because now I spend hours in front of a screen – working. Working a job I don’t care for, but that is enough for the moment [of indecision and transition – but isn’t this the moment I’m constantly tripping over every year or so?]… Changing the subject a bit (distraction?), a shot of me in “my” new town…

Now, back to the topic of relevance… Relevant news: I am now writing for my friends’ sci-fi and popculture webzine, Vórtice. Which is a pretty awesome concept.

More relevant news (are they?): I’ll be DJing again! Next to my friend Naelle and Barbie Blasphemy. Click the flyer for the FB event.

Tonight I would like to direct everyone’s attention towards this series of eye candy:

She is my first Welsh friend and possibly my only Welsh friend… we met on livejournal a decade ago (how time flies!) and is not only extremely talented and creative, ampoule but one of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. She’s one of those (whom I lovingly call in my own, check private jargon that I use for personal mnemonic bookmarking, sildenafil if that makes any sense) “faerie people” – like Johanna Ost and Liselotte Eriksson, for example, which she is actually friends with (click the links if you don’t understand why I call them “faerie people”).

You can visit her deviantART gallery, her blog linked above, her livejournal and other places that she’s linked elsewhere and I’m sure you can find on your own.

I’ve been an admirer of her works for years, and can proudly say I own an original (one of my personal treasures!).
These are some of my favorites, more recent works picked from her galleries.

My friend Naelle Devannah is a multi-talented, syringe violet-haired beast with a beautiful universe of an imagination.

She’s one of the most lovable people that I know and one of my favorite artists. So I’m inviting you to treat yourself to some eyecandy by clicking here for her deviantART gallery.  As a living, visit web breathing work of art, you might appreciate that many of her images are self-portraits.

I’m including a few favorites so you can have a taste.


Also check out her youtube channel for more adorable videos like this one:

If you tumble, you can also follow her here: vorticella and viruella (which features her own artwork).

So I downloaded google chrome, impotent and though I find it to be glitchy and a little bit creepy, seek I think the website looks snazzy in it. But it could be just me…

I’m auctioning things again. I don’t enjoy doing it because it’s such a chore… taking the photos and writing in all the product info… but I rather send things away to people who might want them rather than the alternative. Which is the trash.

You can see them here if you’re interested, unhealthy they’re mostly tops that don’t fit me anymore or that I no longer want, so they’re going cheap (even though they are not) because I just want them out of my room. Corsets, bustiers… along with other trinkets. I’ll be adding more… constantly, I suppose (I have lots of stuff).  So check back at GothAuctions (or here).

Example:

On a side note, and this is completely irrelevant, but I have to say it, I’m addicted to these teas. Yasmarie (my best friend since junior high), introduced me and now I just really want a glass teapot. They’re the prettiest thing ever.

Finally, how about an awkward mobile photo? It seems I have developed eyebags that do not go away since last year. They’re always there.
