‘ Hi there! I’m Marlene, but feel free to call me Peanut. My journal is Friends Only because I don’t want my life broadcasted to the entire world. I’m an open-minded girl, who enjoys making new friends. If you want to add me you may, just please leave a comment in my Friends Only post so I know who you are. Chances are I’ll like you!
Some things to expect reading my journal: Occasional posts of my artwork. Experiences with friends and family. My battles as a schizophrenic. Entries from my written journal. Day to day life experiences. Adventures with the Love of My Life, Brian.
My Weight Loss Goal:
Wanna see a picture of who you’re reading about? Sure you do! So on with the pics!
Me with the Love of My Life, Brian:
*We won a trip to Tampa!*
We've been together since August 18, 2007 and newly engaged March 15, 2008!
I’m an artist and love to draw figure studies. I sometimes like to dabble in animation, although it’s not my strong point. My favorite medium is charcoal. Here are some samples of my artwork:
One of my most recent pieces is a self portrait:
A figure study drawn in class at Ringling School of Art and Design. (One of my favorite pieces):
Now for some pieces in color!
A portrait done in watercolors:
And the legendary Clara Bow!:
Here are some little animations I’ve made:
I’m an animal lover!
I have an 11 year old kitty named Boo, as the animation above is dedicated to him. I’ve raised him since he was 2 weeks old. I love him to pieces. His favorite food is ice cream. Here is a picture of him as a kitten:
I also have a Pomeranian named Kyzmo. She is 5 years old. I bought her for therapeutic reasons when I was 19. She’s really sweet. Her favorite game is fetch! Here she is:
I also have two new additions to my family, Piggy (aka Mr. Fuzzybutt) and Squeaky. They are lovely little guinea pigs and I love them to pieces.
Here is Piggy, who was my Christmas present. He loves to be held and loves eating fruits and veggies and lots and lots of hay. He doesn't like to share. He loves to give me kisses and has bonded to me instantly.
And this is Squeaky, my newest pig. I bought him to keep Pig company. He loves to take baths and being brushed. He's still very shy and cries a lot, which is why I named him "Squeaks". He just always has so much to say!
If you think we have stuff in common or think I’m interesting feel free to add me! I’ve met some really great people on here. I’m always looking forward to making new friends! Looking forward to meeting you!
