That Feeling, Deep Down In Your Gut

Normally, I spend very little time on my doodles, scribbling and lining in a rough manner. But for some reason, my most recent has turned into a bit more than that.
It's coloured pencil, and helix fineliner to line it. I don't know it just sort of, speaks to me. (Which I suppose it should...?)
If I were to get a good scan of it, would you say this is print worthy, via etsy?
Basically, it is like the feeling in the pit of your stomach. It leaves your skin crawling, your throat closing up and knocks the breath out of you. 
There are other things you could say it means, some of them I gravitate toward more than others.

I Miss Using Acrylic Paints

I have a ceramic work and a few watercolour things, but first I have to ramble a bit.
So I was at your pants, in the visual arts forum, when I came across a link in a signature (or maybe 23 links, most of which I was to adhd to pay attention too), and found myself intrigued. One blog I found is called Life With SarahB, and looking at her posts, I realized how much I miss acrylic paints. Trying new things, different styles and switching things up. So, go check her out. The funny thing is that, while at the chain store my parents shop at, I picked up a few oval pieces of wood. They get to be acrylicized. Also, I've had this idea for a few weeks, and I'm going to use some canvas board I painted over (I can't remember the rubbish that I originally painted on it.) and try to make that in acrylic.
I'm quite tired at the moment, due to a "crazy" sleep over that lasted well into the night. Plus, disappointment makes me tired, as does a myriad of other things. So, some things to look at, and I'm off.

Beware the Ides Of March

I'm going to tell you a bit about the last couple weeks, but first, Happy Birthday to STEPHEN!!!!!!!
Now, I learned quite a few things. I'm more stressed about college and the future than I thought I was (which is something I didn't think was possible.) I learned that tissues are even more entertaining than I thought ( when it comes to taking photographs.) Plus, I learned not to tell someone a false name the first time you meet them (because even though you're joking and just wanted to see if you could keep a straight face, you've screwed yourself. You're going to find him adorable, and that you have more in common than you realized, and then you're going to worry that all he cares about is that you told him your name was Elizabeth.) I'm enjoying self-improvement, making little doodles of things my lit teacher says, and my love of twizzlers is being rekindled. Also, I'm really enjoying running.
And now, some things I've posted since the last time I updated you guys. (ALSO, I've a Facebook page! I'd love you if you liked it and recommended it to your friends)

Strep. Throat.

I really hate it. More so than most illnesses. It's probably because I get it so much, but still. It just leaves me with a greater amount of apathy to try and push through. Really, almost all I've done is sleep, with very little drawing and painting going on. I had to go back to school, and didn't doodle much, past writing down little bits of what my lit teacher said, about existentialism, around a floating head. I kinda want to post that. I get all my best ideas in Lit. I should thank Mr.L for being good words to work too. (Seriously, he has the sort of voice that you can listen to doing almost anything, and remember what he talks about.) I'm done rambling about my Lit class now.
Oh, and I did my first partial pencil portrait in ages. I dunno why, but I've hid from pencil drawing for quite a while now. Plus, there is a hawk that was requested for someone on Tumblr.

Now to go wreck a concert.
