When I moved out into my first two bedroom apartment by myself I remember thinking my two worst fears were burglary and fire. I pictured someone falling asleep with a cigarette in the night or someone busting in my windows. Well three weeks ago my apartment was broken into through the kitchen window, and all my gold jewelry was stolen. The gold and ruby jewelry my father gave to me as a child, my first communion cross, my gold and diamond earrings my parents bought me for prom. Everything of value to me but not really even worth much money was stolen. I was heartbroken. Last night my apartment caught fire. My bathroom is trashed and I’m just thankful that that’s the only thing. It was terrifying. Someone lit the trash can on fire in the alleyway. So now that my worst fears have come true, does that make me fearless?

Sorry for all the painting spam but progress shots are just so rad

My favorite part of painting will always be that first moment I see it staring back

That’s my boy✨

Last night I left my keys at work, and went back to get them. When I got there, some of my co workers were sitting around the bar and this blonde woman was there. My keys were on the bar and one girl asked me why I had a skeleton key. I explained that its a weird story, but a good friend of mine had killed himself, and he had given me this key so it’s really important. The girls all looked shocked and snapped their heads toward the blonde woman and I was confused. Apparently she is a medium and before I got there she asked to hold the key. After holding it for a moment she said she got an overwhelming feeling that she was going to cry and couldn’t hold it anymore. She asked me if the Walmart-esque smiley face meant anything because kevin was there and his presence was pushing that image on her. I said I didn’t know. Then when I got to work this morning this note was left for me by the woman with another note saying this was a message from kevin. As soon as I looked at it I recognized the smiley face and it clicked, I did a painting of Kevin after his passing and put this exact smiley face in the corner of it..
