College Student -- Future Engineer -- Tacky Christmas Reincarnate

just a 20 year old girl trying to find her way through life one mistake at a time.

i love all types of art. traditional art is my favorite but digital art is a close second. i'm addicted to watercolors. crocheting is now my favorite pastime. oh, and poetry. yeah, if you haven't already noticed it's kinda important to me. losing it would be like losing an arm. or a leg. not a foot though.

there shouldn't be anything else you need to know but feel free to drop me note anytime. i'm always here to talk.

I saw this tag on my friend TheyCallMeLoud's journal. It looked cool and I was bored so I gave it a shot. Feel free to try it yourselves in the comments if ya want. I'd love to see what y'all come up with. :D

Other news:
1) Yes my actual name is Crystal. Yes I've gone by Jade here on dA for the past 3 years. I just felt like my name shouldn't be some big secret anymore. Call me Crystal. Call me Jade. Call me Sassy Bitchtron 3000. I don't care tbh. Actually don't call me that last one. That's just weird. :XD:
2) I am sooooooooo ready for Thanksgiving Break. I think I've finally reached my breaking point as my stress levels from my college courses have skyrocketed. This break will be the perfect time for my to regroup and de-stress. 
3) I registered for my spring classes and they suuuuuuuck. Well they classes themselves don't suck, I'm gonna be doing cool shit like fluid mechanics and differential calculus but the hours and work load blows. Oh well that's becoming an engineer for ya. ;)
4) I've felt very stagnant lately. Just between my college obligations and a lot of unwanted, high strung emotions I feel like I've settled into a weird place. BUT! I think that I can get out of this funk with your help. So....
5) SEND ME YOUR LIT LOVE! Send me all the pieces you've been raving over lately. Send me prompts. Could be anything. I really wanna write some experimental pieces. Hit me up for collabs. I've never done one but I think it'd be AWESOME to do one. I'd really like to get to know all you beautiful beautiful writers out there better. :love:

:heart: SO SEND ME STUFF PWEASE! :heart:

:rose: Until next time lovelies~

blood covers my knuckles
in patch-work patterns
while dark skinned violets
bloom on my open palms.  

a tired stiffness has
settled in my bones &
yet my mind fires images
onto the backs of
my drooping eyelids
like a defunct
funeral procession
in mid July.

autumn has already shed
her forlorn children
upon my rotting
form, and winter
has made a home
in-between my
saltwater lungs.

but even if the
four housemen come
crashing through the sodden
earth to drag me to hell
i’ll still be here
knocking at your door,
waiting for you
to answer.
knocking on heaven's door
Inspired by the hauntingly beautiful photo, In the autumn hands by the amazing NataliaDrepina

I wanted to have it here in the description but the thumb isn't working. :/
