And sometimes...

>>  28.10.09

... I would be jealous at Fobie. She can't be hurt by anything or anyone since she gave away her heart.

Sorry, I have been down for these couple of days. Scary and hateful things happened to me; some stories hurt so much that I can't possibly tell anyone. I wanted to scream angrily but I know I can't, so I cried in anger instead.

One of the things that I could tell you is that I always got unlucky meeting up crazy old men in the bus; they either shout annoying things or they are perverts. I wish I was a boy instead. :(
Or how old aunties are trying to judge you. They would stare at what you do, buy, and eat. And they would often approach you and ask you some random questions. Once I was in queue in the post office, and an old lady was asking me how to post this thing and that and what time does the post office closed. Maybe I should consider to design a headband that says "I don't work here, so don't ask me things about this shop."
Another thing is that some people would order custom items from me but once I completed the items, they never reply back. I know that this is an ordinary things to happen once in a while, but I just feel uncomfortable about how they change their mind so easily, not to mention I wasted a lot of time, effort, and money to complete their custom. And I feel so disappointed, even to the point I feel that I should never have another custom order.
Maybe another reason is that I always think carefully before committing to buy or even order from another person. I appreciate their hard-work and wouldn't want to waste it into nothing. And yes, my friends often tell me that I get to serious at things.

Once again, sorry for my rambling. You can just ignore it. ~.~

Hey Asuka,


I see you have a pretty dark side too. I guess the creative sorts tend to have one, huh? that is a beautiful drawing. Don't fret. If you need someone to talk at, you know how to get me :)

As to your custom order, I understand what you're going through. I had the same thing happen to me, TWICE, in the same week! It happens, and as with all start-ups, it can be rough. Hang in there, your work is beautiful and speaks for itself. Don't let the bad apples spoil it for you, 'k?

<3, and happy thoughts,

thank you Snowfern :)

At other times, I would like to think that the dark side is what pushes you to do things better.

I think I know which custom orders that leaves you so disappointed, that is why you also reminds me, correct?
i got another customer, after almost a week since i've completed i asked her twice, the answer was only she's no longer interested :(

Hi Asuka, that is a beautiful drawing, makes you think too. :) I hope whatever you're going through, would pass soon enough. And i know what you mean about pervert old men or irritating aunties! they can break your day sometimes, even though they're strangers! :(

and about the custom orders, I welcome that and ALWAYS ask for full payment up-front upon a mutual agreement of item description, before i even start sculpting. i would really propose you (and Cindy too!) do that, so that you can save the anxiety when such circumstances happen!

HUGS! :)

Jocelyn! (oh, and i hope i get to see you at TDA, if i get accepted! :))

Hi Jocelyn,

thank you~ *hugs back*

yeah, i learnt to do that from now on. i feel kind of stupid of doing it hastily just because i have the time.

hope to see you to at TDA! i don't know if i get accepted, but i will still come anyway. (revenge of not buying at my last exhibition XP)
