Musings from the Mind of Cassandra
Going Crazy!!!

I’ve not been myself for quite some time.  Being jobless and broke sucks balls!!!

Trust and Love go hand in hand

Trust and Love go hand in hand

*Note:  I don’t know what happened, but in order to do a new post I am on a different page than before.  I am still working on how to add pictures to my posts :)

We all have issues, right?  I realized that I do not feel comfortable trusting others or putting my trust in just about anyone.  This has left me with the mind set that I must do everything on my own.  I constantly am worrying about…

Thanks Society for the Mixed Messages!

Thanks Society for the Mixed Messages!

A lot of the time I write about the importance of being confident, staying motivated and ridding oneself of doubt.  I now know why it is so important to push these concepts, but that it might be an uphill battle.

Society sends mixed messages to us.  “Be confident in yourself, but make sure you fit the societal standard, ok?”  What the hell?!?!?

Doubt and the Artist

Doubt and the Artist

*This post and others can be found at http://www.cassandraphelan.weebly.com

As an artist, doubt is usually lurking around a corner.  Why is that? Why do artists doubt themselves?

The major reason is that art is a window into the mind and soul of the artist. They call it “self expression” and that is why!

Every Artist Has To Start Out “Small”

Every Artist Has To Start Out “Small”

So it is three o’clock in the morning and what am I doing? Writing this post!  I want to do it before I lose it. It is nagging at me.

Yesterday I spent the better part of it taking pictures of my brother’s paintings. He does not have a portfolio and needs one. I took pictures of about 16 of his paintings. That is about half of what he has done. It was interesting seeing how his style has changed.…

Is Meat the Answer?

Is Meat the Answer?

I have been watching “My 600 lb Life” on TLC. One person on there was saying that the traveling made it hard to eat right so she got fast food.  I thought “why doesn’t she get a grilled chicken sandwich and just eat the chicken?”

That was when I really started thinking about myself and being a vegetarian. Should I start eating meat again?

Do not get me wrong, I have been thinking about it for a…
