The Artist's Way (Day 23) Chapter 4 part 2: Reading Deprivation: No Freaking Way!

I had to cut the chapter 4 video in half because it was way too long. This part is on the particular exercise this week: Reading Deprivation. 
The fact is, I was almost reading free for 10 days when I was in Hawaii and I had no problem finding things to do as you saw on my blog. I can also go for a day without reading here and there every time there is a doll event. 
If you are going to use reading deprivation as a way to cut other people's opinion fro your life like it's sort of the point in the book, I would suggest you spent a week away from every one, that would be a lot more efficient. 
I don't really get the point of cutting a good habit like reading. If it's so that you can save time for other things, well I would say cut TV and start reading books instead because the amount of people not reading enough is way too high to tell anyone to stop reading. I seriously mean it. 
It is true that depriving yourself from something is going to take you closer to your own consciousness, so you might want to cut of something from time to time. In most main religion, they have fasting periods to help with that, be it, Lent, Ramadan or Yom Kippur. 
Cutting yourself from society can be good for you to be able to form your own opinion if you are that fragile that you take what everyone else's say to heart but if you have any form of self-esteem and know a little bit about yourself and your own thought process, I find reading deprivation to be pretty useless.

The Artist's Way (Day 23) Chapter 4 part 1: Solitude Work and the dark side of the coin

Here is my review of Chapter 4. I have to say I was once again so annoyed with this chapter that I wanted to seriously quit and I think I found a method to deal with this book and sort of quit at the same time (more on that later).
I'm really annoyed with this Chapter because even though it looks good in theory it has so many flaws in covering the topic that I wasn't even sure where to start.
I had to read the part about Honest Changes twice to make sure that I actually wasn't dreaming.
It looks nice if you have no clue about how your own emotion work. It's true that you are going to have a lot of nice things about yourself coming up. But those are the easy bits. It's like how I want too bake cookies for my kids every Sunday I never realised that let me get some flour.
The problem is not with the nice bit. The problem is with the bad bits that are going to come up. The problem is with the yucky stuff about yourself that you are going to hate. This book doesn't prepare you to accept things you love when you see them consciously as a negative. And that's the main problem I have with it. Because we all love the drama in our life and we love our bad habits because they somehow make sense and there is no way it just show you the good stuff and pretend that everything is going to be all right.
The positive side only is killing me. I find it gross and exhausting.

WeWriWar 225: Rainbow catcher

Welcome to a new excerpt of Rainbow Catcher for the Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.

Now let's go back to our story.

Summary of previous episodes: Clarissa is coughing and wanted to watch Everett Cooper on TV but Jason refused, she is due to get her rainbow the next day but she seems scared, to make her feel better Jason leave the TV on. Clarissa tried to explain about rainbows, she is a big fan of Everett Cooper but Jason is not too sure about it. Clarissa complained about her dialophone but Jason needs to go to work. Before completely leaving he is thinking about getting her her rainbow. We flashed back to the meeting Jason had with a rainbow seller at the black market. Jason left Clarissa's room to go to work. Jason was talking to his boss about the rainbow coming the next day. Jason prepared the money for the rainbow in a sport bag and went to the hospital. The rainbow seller arrived for the delivery. But it was a scam and Jason prepares to go get the rainbow himself in the desert. Markus has a last surprise for him.

We start just where we left off last week.

“I don’t want to look at it, it never give anything good,” the first man answered pushing the hand of the second man away from his face.

“It’s because you can’t read properly, it’s highly worthy calculation. You don’t have a clue about maths because you didn’t take time to listen at school and preferred to go farming like a moron,” the second man answered.

The first man pushed him away and he stumbled upon his chair.

“Look who is the farmer with a dirty ass now,” the first man said grabbing his beer and drinking half of it down in one gulp leaving some foam on his moustache.

The second man stood back up not very comfortable on his legs and attacked. They were obviously both drunk.

“Stop right here,” the man behind the bar said standing in front of them behind the counter.

Nendoroid Box Opening and Review: Megumin Kono Suba

Today, I'm opening Megumin from Kono Suba. 
I almost missed out on her in the same way that I missed out on Aqua. Aqua will be soon coming to join her though. I love her look, and I think she is an awesome addiction to my collection. She has the cutest faceplates ever. I also love her witchy outfit.  

Here is the video

And here are some pictures
