Apiatahn

This is Apiatahn Cloudstride, Seer of An’she and aspiring inventor. With the Blizzcon announcement of Battle for Azeroth there has come a renewed vigor to play World of Warcraft, for me and it seems many others.  On the official forums and the WoW reddit excitement is running high (along with, of course, the usual complaints)…

I don’t want to go…

You know the episode of Doctor Who when the 10th doctor regenerates? He’s done so much and yet feels like he’s barely begun, and when it’s time to regenerate and loose who he is, he naturally doesn’t want to go. I feel that way right now. Less than a week ago I was sculpting dragons…

Not a good person.

It is 10:40 PM and I need to be up at 4AM tomorrow morning to go to work and set up for a big community yard sale we are having. And yet here I am writing a blog instead. The previous blog I wrote was about an incident at work where I took my sarcastic…

Sarcasm & the Work Place

I have always been a sarcastic person with a dry sense of humor. I get it from my dad.  Sometimes though I can take it too far. Today at work I was called into Human Resources, and both HR and my boss were there. Apparently a formal complaint had been lodged against me. They told…

Is there a way out of this cycle?

Last week, and this weekend, something happened. It wasn’t anything I can put my finger on, there wasn’t any one moment that cause a change, I just woke up one day and had a good day. Then I started sculpting. I cranked out a dozen clay dragons for an event at my work this weekend….

What’s the next step?

I am very proud of this one. Yeah, there is a lot wrong with it, namely the twist of the torso is back-breaking (literally), and as a friend pointed out the fingers on that one hand look like wriggly worms instead of fingers. But my main reason for loving this picture is the face, especially…

For almost a week now I’ve drawn something almost every day.  I haven’t actually worked at practicing any one aspect, more just doodled until I came upon something I liked, then followed it through to completion. There are some areas in which I’ve improved, and some in which I have not. In both of the…

Drawing Again?

Last night, for the first time in a long time, I elected to spend an hour sitting in bed working on the above picture instead of squeezing in another episode of TV.  I started it while sitting in the car outside where my Dad works waiting to pick him up (his car has died so…

Who I was, who I am, who I will be.

Sometimes when we look back at our lives and the things that influenced us, what once we held in high regard we now see the flaws and imperfections instead. I wonder which is better, realizing we’ve outgrown something we once thought was the best thing ever, or being able to reminisce about such things without…

Don’t Stop Believing

One Styrofoam cup, 2/3rds filled with black coffee, 1/3rd with water, add 2 packets of Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix. That’s how I take my coffee in the morning, and I’ve found I actually need coffee in the morning because I tend to stay up past midnight even when I need to be up at…

Stop thinking, just do!

Thought I’d start off with sharing one of my favorite Sarah Scribbles. This is me, every time.  I leave my office saying “don’t do it!” I go down the stairs screaming “You’re not even hungry! What are you doing?!” I swipe my card at the vending machine practically dying in my head from yelling “No…

To Just be Me.

I’ve been thinking a lot, as per usual, but perhaps more so since the last blog I wrote. I’ve been trying to figure out who I am. If I wipe away all the obsession over how people view me, who is left?  But then I realize that even asking that question and trying to figure…
