100 Songs Challenge
EDIT: I'm thinking that I might remake some of the older pieces. I won't be changing the songs or anything, but I'm unhappy with how they look or have better ideas for them. I'm still thinking about this though, so just keep that in mind.
Seeing as music is a great part to my inspiration, and I need to try and get back into art, I have decided to take :iconcinda7:'s 100 Songs Challenge! :dummy:
Simply put, it's like the 100 themes challenge, but you get to pick songs instead. :)
So this will update at random whenever I post a pic up.
I'm also creating a playlist of the songs used, which I shall post the link for later.

OC features!
:new: AFTER ABOUT 3 MONTHS I FINALLY FINISH THIS! I just did EVERYONE who commented as a thank you for being so patient with me.
Ahh! I'm due for a good stretch! I got some stuff done the past few weeks and I am slowly digging myself out of the tar pit! I've got 3 art trades left and a few birthday gifts with a few personal projects slipped in there!
I also want to hope on this super late Band wagon and do OC journal features!
 1. I'll make a feature choosing my favorite oc of yours. :new: I'm also going to steal ChamomileCatastrophe's idea and I will tell you WHAT I like about your OC's and it will be longer than "How cute!"
2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

1.)

Super cute! and super spunky! my opinion may be

Wow. Been a while since I made a journal for the sake of venting. I was originally going to do it on Twitter, but naaaahhh, let’s do it here...

‪Since it’s Pride Month, I’m hyper focused on labels and how I get neurotic about them.‬

‪Feel free to skip over all this. This is just for my own catharsis.‬

‪Right, so... if I didn’t know you at all and you asked for my label, I’d say non-binary bisexual. It’s the broadest and most widely understood label that closely represents me.‬

‪However, I think if I were to really sit down and go through ALL the labels, it’s not 100% accurate.‬

‪The truth is I think I’m asexual? Or at least some kind of grey-asexual or maybe demi? It’s hard to say because I spent most of my life sex repulsed and I feel like I don’t fully grasp what constitutes as sexual attraction. It seems to be lost on me.‬

‪This might have resulted from trauma during my formative years so I subconsciously stayed away from anything sexual, even actively avoiding it. Part of this is also due to sex being taboo in American society, and I was a “good kid” growing up.‬

‪This attitude continued until my early 20s but by then it was too late, it seemed. I feel like my sexual awakening was halted for far too long and now I don’t know WHERE on the spectrum I fall on. I don’t like adopting labels because I don’t know how my experiences differ from others.‬

‪I legitimately don’t know how I’m “supposed” to feel. How often does a “normal” person feel sexual attraction and arousal? I’m not entirely sure if I CAN feel sexual arousal the way everyone else does. It’s like there’s a disconnect in my brain that I can’t get around.‬ And I’ve read enough posts about asexuality, how they feel, their disconnect between fantasy and acting upon it that it makes me feel “oh, maybe this is me?”‬ It’s really hard to say because I never took the initiative to sit down and TALK to people about it, now I feel I’m too old and embarrassed.‬ Partly I didn’t want to talk because trying to get high schoolers to take sexuality seriously is like herding cats.‬

‪I’m so grateful for the people in my life who were able to speak seriously about sex with me. I learned so much from them and it helps me to understand myself better.‬

‪As for the people I’d like to be romantically involved with, gender was never an issue for me. I know I’ve experienced attraction to NB folks, as well as men and women.‬
‪But, as I’ve stated before, the discourse between the definitions of bisexual and pansexual makes me not want to marry myself to a label.‬

‪While I feel “panromantic” is the best way to describe me, it’s not that common outside internet circles and I don’t want to have to explain myself every time I tell someone my sexual orientation. So I just stick with “bi.”‬

Also I get a bit neurotic about the flag colours too, LMAO. I actually like the bi colours more than the pan ones. (I have a preference for cool colours.)‬

‪GENDER for me is a whole other kettle of fish.‬
‪I’ve always been partial to “androgyne” or “agender” since my gender presentation tends to be very “neutral.” I’ve jokingly referred to my gender as “existent” or “lazy.”‬

‪I tend to dress more male since that’s just easier for me, but a part of my frustration stems from how little feminine clothing I find that makes me feel good. It’s not that I don’t like being feminine sometimes, it’s that I find 90% of feminine clothing to be restricting.‬ Basically: I dislike a lot of “normal” feminine styles. I’m VERY picky about how I present my feminine side. (I’m also lazy and femininity takes more work. And is more expensive. And less comfortable.) Hence why I dress masculine most days.‬

‪Ergo, “androgyne,” “agender,” and “non-binary.” But those are three labels, each with their own flag. And I’m scared of choosing one since I could choose “wrong.” Even though these definitions tend to bleed into one another.‬

‪Truthfully, I don’t talk about my gender outside the internet. And the reason for that Segways into the root of my problem: a fear of being seen as pretentious.‬

‪Don’t get me wrong. It’s GREAT that there are so many labels and definitions to ID with. I’m GLAD people are opening up their understanding of how varied the spectrum is. Be PROUD of your label, no matter how obscure!

‪But I have this problem where I often feel like I’m not “allowed” to do things others can.‬
‪Others can ID as XYZ but for some reason I’m not “allowed” to. No one told me I couldn’t. It’s a weird barrier I put on myself. And I don’t know why I’m like this.‬

‪ ‪I feel like if I accept a single label, that’s it. That’s my label 5ever. OTHERS can change but I “can’t.” Hence why I get scared to ID myself for no reason other than my anxious brain.‬

‪Admittedly, a lot of this is moot because I’m in a committed relationship with someone who accepts my weird manner of sexuality and attire. So I’m trying not to worry so much and just be happy with my weird, ambiguous self.‬

It’s weird. I always thought I’d be in a relationship with a woman rather than a man due to how often I fell for my female friends rather than my male ones. But life has a funny way of working out. I’m really glad for my partner, though. Something I despise about gender labels is feeling like I have to conform to my birth gender, and he’s always let me be me and present myself however I feel comfortable doing.

Anyway, thanks for coming to my TEDTalk.
