I Admit it. I’m ADdicted

Sad to say but I am addicted to my phone. I am the owner of an iPhone and I can never seem to put it down.

Lets start back to where I knew I had a problem.

Before I ever owned an iPhone I had an android. It was an Htc SV One. one day I was browsing through it and it shut off on me.  I tried turning it back on and it was no use. I quickly ran to the nearest phome store to get it fixed. The lady restored it was back to normal. When I got back home I began to re-download all my apps. My phone decided to  decided to shut off on me AGAIN!!!! Best believe I went right back to the store where it was pronounced dead. In that moment I knew I needed a new phone. I called my parents and they both gave me reasons as to why they could not buy me a new phone. I had no choice but to buy the phome myself. Let me tell you, phones are not cheap. My phone chopce was between the galaxy and the iPhone. Since my android mishap just happened, I decided to go with the iPhone. The phone cost $500.000. Yes there was a huge dent in my bank account but I had a phone.
From there I knew I had a phone problem because I couldn’t last more than 5 hrs without a phone. My phone is the only way people can contact me so a phone was needed ASAP.

Now lets flash forward to the present which is now. The addiction got worse. I am always on my phone and my friends always tell me this. It got to a point wnere my friend threw my phone across the floor because I was so into it. Thank goodness he had a carpet.

Yes I have a problem and I am currently working on it. There should be a place for phone rehab.

When Singers Collide Gif

Can you guess who these two artist are? I bet you cannot. In class we chose two self portraits and combine the two together. I used two of my favorite singers. I combined Elle Varner and Jhene Aiko to create my animated gif portraits. The original face belongs to Jhene Aiko but I cut out […]

Can you guess who these two artist are? I bet you cannot. In class we chose two self portraits and combine the two together. I used two of my favorite singers. I combined Elle Varner and Jhene Aiko to create my animated gif portraits. The original face belongs to Jhene Aiko but I cut out and glued on Elle Varner’s eyes, mouth, and earrings. To make it cool and unique it was projected against some electrical pipes and things that just popped out of the wall. It looks very unique and has greenish, yellowish, bluish hues to it.

 

Here are the original pictures before they were morphed together.

The Hair Mishap

At the beginning of the school semester I decided to dye my hair blue.  The process to color it was crazy. I had to bleach my hair in order for it to take the bluish tone. Once you bleach your hair it can become fragile and prone to dryness and even damage. Once my hair was bleached it looked yellowish. It kind of reminded me a ramen noodles. To get my hair blue I used the color after midnight blue from the manic panic line. It is a vegan hair dye that has nothing in it to damage your hair, from my perspective.

The finished results left me with bluish greenish hair. In certain lights it looks green and in others it looks blue. I was excited about the results because it made me look different. I got a lot of compliments with the color. My boss on the other hand was shocked. I secretly feel like she did not like what I did since I work in an office. OH WELL!!!

Overtime I started to see more people with the color and I started to feel like a clone. Suddenly everybody wanted to be blue. It just got to a point where I did not want to deal with it no more. To get rid of the oh so “Popular” color, I decided to use color oops. Color oops is a product that removes temporary, semi, demi permanent color from your hair. It shrinks the color molecules and turns back into the previous color before the dye. The only issue is that if you do not wash your hair thoroughly then the color will return. Unfortunately that was what happened to me. Constant shampooing to my hair was drying it out. I felt like I was washing forever. After washing, I gave myself a protein treatment. As I was checking on the results of the treatment I noticed my hair was turning greenish. I quickly started washing my hair again, but it was too late. The color molecules were restoring. By the morning i woke up green, and i was upset. I felt like a tree. After work I purchased two bottle of permanent black dye. By that night my hair was black, but there were consequences to my actions. My hair texture changed, and my hair became flatter than normal. I put so more stress on my hair in two days that it was very weak. Now I am on the path of restoring my hair to health.

I would consider my friends and I creative beings. We are into different aspects of art. My best friend  draws and she post it online without fear. I on the other hand usually to add my own signature at the bottom or make some type of watermark. By adding my tag at the bottom of my work assures me in a way that people will know it is mine. I used to love writing fiction, and I was interested in doing fan fiction. My fear was someone using my idea and getting noticed for it.

I want to show the world how creative of a writer I am but, but I just fear someone to take my idea and use or alter it in some way. Doctorow’s 2nd Law is “Fame Won’t Make You Rich, But You Can’t Get Paid Without It.”  I agree with what he is trying to say. In the article “We Copy Like We Breathe,” he stated that “You can sell stuff, you can ask for donations, you can perform, you can wrap works in advertisements, you can license it, you can take commissions, but whatever it is you plan to do to make money, you can’t do any of it unless people want to be your audience.” I agree because it connects to his second law. In order for myself to get noticed I have to put my work out there. You have to build up a fan base. From there the fan base you build up will buy your work because they are a fellow supporter. It is inevitable for things not to get copied on the internet. Once you upload something that right there is considered a copy. Fame will build you up and your audience will get bigger due to constant sharing or copying of your work, but every little thing done to your work you will not vet paid for. That is my interpretation of his law.
