My Artistic Philosophies.

Truth is the essence of all art; to look deeper, beyond physical reality and expose the truth that is woven beneath the surface, its purpose.

It is also the purpose of art to not only tell us the truth of ourselves, but to provide an appreciation of all that we have.

Art has no survival value, but instead is one of those things, like friendship and love, which give value to survival. And so, art should never be turned to hate or despair, but should encourage and show an appreciation for those things which make life worth living.

Honestly, are you keeping a big secret right now? 
No... not really... Just holding on to it until I can tell her.
Honestly, do you have a friend you don't actually like?
I have acquaintances whom would be called friends, but I'm rather indifferent to.

What do you do when you're mad?
It depends on what kind of angry I get... White hot rage, I smash stuff up (often including the source of said anger.) In an ice cold fury though, I'm much more deliberate.
What's the worst thing you've done when you were mad?
Using fabric shears in an attempt to castrate the person who pissed me off.

Aye... see above.

Ever cried over the opposite sex?
Aye... a few times, always the same person.

No, although when I was young (5 or 6) I used to cry over the movie 'Ghost' every time I saw it.

What makes you the happiest?
Nothing in particular anymore.
Does being with your friends make you happy?
It does, but it's a fleeting happiness and vanishes as soon as my friends do.
Do you believe in yourself?
I used to.... not so sure anymore.
Do you wish you were happier?
Every second of every day.
Is being happy overrated?
Can music make you happy?
Music is very emotive and can trigger many responses, including happiness.

Really and truly broken? Just once, a few months ago.

Yes, one person.

One person.

Do you actually hate anyone?
Not anymore... 
Have you ever been on a hit list?
I've been at the top of several... it gets depressing after a while.
Do you hate George Bush? Why?
:shrug: They're politicians, they can't be trusted but I don't particularly hate them.

Is your self-esteem extremely low?
Behind all the bravado and faux confidence, my self-esteem is so low its dropped clean off the charts.
Do you think you're good looking?
Moderately... I have nice features and wasn't beaten with the ugly stick, but I'm nothing special.
Do you wish you could be someone else?
No. Never. I just wish certain things about me were different.

Olive green.
What is your skin tone?
Current piercings?
Left ear, but my dog ripped it out and I haven't replaced it yet.

3, both upper arms and the back of my right shoulder.
Straight hair or curly?

Hugged someone?
Loads of people.
Been on the phone until the sun came up?
:nod: With a truly special person :heart:
Laughed so hard you peed in your pants?
Only once, when I was young... and being tickled mercilessly by my aunt.
Laughed so hard you cried?
A few times. :)
Got in a fight with someone?
There was a time when I'd get into fights with alarming regularity.

Do you get along with your parents?
My father has only spoken to me once and that was to tell me never to contact him again, so that's a big no on that front.
I got on extremely well with my mother, she was as much a friend as a parent. But as you can probably tell from the past tense, she died a few years ago.
Do you have mental breakdowns?
I had the mother of all breakdowns when I was 15... but these days I mostly let stuff wash over me. 

How tall are you?
How much money do you have on you right now?
