I wasn’t in a particularly unhappy mood today, in fact it was truly a great day spent at the beach with close friends and by a fire tonight. But for whatever reasons, certain pangs of loneliness sprung upon me. I don’t know if it was seeing my friends in these awesome relationships or what, but I was just bummed. I usually don’t have an issue being single, but tonight, all I wanted was someone to snuggle up close to. I got home, and my lovely soulmate, Natasha, had left a post on my facebook wall, saying how Marry The Night by Gaga would be the theme song of our youth. So of course, I put the song on, and as I took in the lyrics, I realized how important it is to just let go and embrace what you might consider a dark and confusing time. Just roll with it and amazing things will happen. I put it on repeat, took out my pastels, and just drew. And it was fantastic. I feel like I’ve been pulled out of an artistic rut, and I’m back to realizing right now, I don’t need a boy to make me happy. I just need the people I love, and to do the things I love- the rest will fall into place eventually.
