A little kooky, a lot messy, and just a tad bit socially awkward!

Meanwhile, outside.

Before I was arrested, I was out on a haikyo/urbex outing, which is the hobby of exploring abandoned buildings. I usually go about these alone, so I liked updating my Facebook and Instagram throughout my day so that my friends can sort of join me in my solo adventures (as well as know where I am, for safety purposes). On the 22nd hour, I posted this last picture before my feed went silent.

It was my view from inside a squad car.

My friends Samie and Herb, worried that no one had heard from me since, started looking for me. Herb is a university professor, and it's already happened more than once that a student of hers has gone missing for a couple of months or so, only for her to find out later that they had been in jail that whole time, but with no way to contact anyone.

Samie called every police station in Adachi Ward, since that was the location that was indicated on my status update. Every station simply said I wasn't there, until she got to Minami Senju Police Station. They weren't allowed to tell her I was there, yet they can't lie either, so instead she got a very roundabout answer.

My friend James is one of the best guys on earth and I can never believe how he’s always able to bear my craziness (and the dumb stuff I think about) when I get depressed. I told him about a decision I made that was heartbreaking and he came running to my house to comfort me despite being sleepless from being on duty for 24 hours. Every crying mess of a girl needs someone like him around. I wish the Navy didn’t take him away so often :(

Full disclosure: I am not this cute in real life when I am crying. They call it “ugly crying” for a reason.

What do you do to comfort yourself when you feel like crap? Do you like baths?
Hi guys!

I don't spend too much time on DA anymore, and I find myself being more active on Facebook these days. So, I decided to put up an artist page there (well, my sister convinced me, haha). So if you'd like to follow me there, please click the link!

Thanks so much! I don't draw much these days, but it's nice that people are still looking at my work sometimes :)
