Black, black, black

Oh my, my, my...I've been neglecting Flickr! I hope you're not rejecting me yet like a bad organ transplant.

 

This photo represents how I've been doing in the last days. I went through a low spirits phase for days and it was pathetic really. I was trying to control everything and put my life in order and in my efforts to do so, I felt so helpless and hopeless. I learned to let things go and not to over plan every little thing. That's why the title is "Black, black, black"---it's a trick my friend taught me (which her boyfriend taught her) that whenever she can't sleep, she'll just say the word black continuously and think of that color. She found it more effective than counting sheep, and though I don't use the trick for bedtime, it's definitely an effective way to block out over planning. :)

 

And yes, I need a lesson in minimalism. :P

 

And I was so happy when I saw that two awesome Flickr friends, Sarah and Mili wrote me testimonials! Thank you guys, I really appreciate your kind words. :')

 

I need to run but hopefully I'll get to visit your steams after the weekend! I'm missing out on a lot of incredible uploads already!
