As the spring is slowly emerging, my life is definitely becoming a fantastic journey.
On the 12th of this month, I entered an art contest with 75 other artists with a three hour deadline.  If you told me even three years ago that I would be using my artistic ability, I would not just laugh but get the sense that years of my life were unproductive.  This imagination, this fancy art research, this fancy “get your ideas on paper”…I am at the freaking point of making my life extremely marvelous.
I plan to post the image of my completed art project from my art teacher very soon.
Matthew bought me the finest tablet, pink of course, with his “student” discount.  I pretty much use the tablet with my fingers—like the movie Minority Report with my boyfriend Tom Cruise.  I have NEVER EVER had someone buy a present like this for me!  I am very blessed and lucky to have a partner that gives me exactly dream about!  I saw this tablet at Best Buy, I ran over to it and said these exact words “This will be mine!”  He must have seen the twinkles in my eyes!
So out of the blue, he asks me to check something on his computer…we share things all the time on the internet.  I sat down and almost fainted when he asked me if this was what I wanted.  My heart started to race and drool was dripping off the sides of my mouth (not really but was feeling like a lucky dog).  Even more, we went to amazon and bought this amazing bright pink case for it.
How did this happen to me?  How do I recover from a “coma” lifestyle?  Why did my brain shut off my greatest gift of all for 15 years?
It is a miracle.  A real driven miracle.  My brain functions and now I am free.

On the first day of my job, I walk into a production studio to hand in paperwork. A young gentleman stands up to shake my hand when I walk into the room. "Wow! You are tall." he states. I point to my heels of my shoes. "Wow! You are short." Laughter lights up the room.
