Adopted from mxhl@dA~

She’s my first (actual) OC adopt, so I love her to bits!
I decided to draw and name her Nyfia! ouo

(hehe I actually drew her for a meme on deviantart)

Dear you,
Anonymous whispered: hello! i saw on your twitter your pastel hair! how many times did you bleach it, what hair dye did you use? what is your current treatment for your hair since bleaching does damage the hair? i am glad that you took the risk, it really really looks good on you alex!! do you plan on switching the colors up in the future?

AHHHOMG/// THANK YOU VERY MUCH!(*/∇\*)

First off, It’s my first time going from black hair to something much much lighter (pastel purple/lavender) so it’s not perfect! some strands are lighter than the others so it looks like I have highlights AHAHAHA! but that’s completely fine since I wasn’t expecting it to turn out perfect anyways ouo

I bleached my hair around 3 times ((definitely not good for your hair!)) 1st bleach, it came out uneven kinda like a reverse ombre, 2nd bleach I tried to even it out, and 3rd to lighten it a bit more to a light blonde. I’d wait 1-2 weeks per bleaching attempt.

Since we don’t like using a lot products with chemicals in this household. The treatments I’ve tried and experimented with are virgin coconut oil, argan oil, apple cider** and a protein hair treatment I got from a local store.

They all made my hair silky, shiny and smooth (tho some might be smellier than the others lmaoo) The treatment I’m currently on is the protein hair treatment, which I use as a conditioner and some days I’d leave it on for about an hour to help repair the proteins on my hair.

The dye I used was a Classic Manic Panic: Purple Haze! ^q^

For now, I’ll just let it fade, and then maybe try doing a darker/deeper purple and then once I get tired with the color I might try going blue or pink next hehe!

Extra tips/advice:

  • **don’t do the apple cider treatment if you have dyed your hair! (apple cider vinegar may strip off some of the hair color)
  • bleaching/coloring long hair is riskier compared to medium-short hair (some parts of our hair bleach/color faster than the rest especially when it’s not applied evenly or not done correctly)
  • pastel hair may fade faster since you’re using hair dye diluted with lots of conditioner
  • when washing your hair use shampoo/conditioner that’s not too harsh and preferably cold water
  • not washing or shampooing your hair too often can actually help revitalize your hair, believe it or not. (let the natural oils on your hair do the trick!)
  • if you’re planning to bleach/color your hair on your own, make sure you’ve done a lot of research! Use Google, Youtube, ask a professional or someone with A LOT of experience.
  • don’t take my advice (lol) 

I’m not a professional whatsoever, and these are all just based on my own experience.

I’ve been wanting to dye my hair for 3 years and only got the courage to do so recently, not because I’m afraid of going bald but because I live in a place where colored hair is sort of considered taboo. Since it’s “unnatural” and uncommon, people with colored hair would often get death stares lol!

I decided to just go ahead and color my hair because I felt like I was ready to take that huge step/risk and I’ve learned not to mind what others may think of me (…also I was kinda bored AHAHAH)

Anyways, I’ve never thought of my hair as something that would define me as a person, rather, a tool to explore new styles and express my mood, thoughts or feelings.

It has only been a month since I colored my hair and there are times when I go out and wonder why some people stare at me, and then I remember: “oh yeah… my hair is kinda purple.”

Ahahaha! soooo yeah… I just typed a really long essay about hair and went completely off topic (*´∇`)ノ

Dear you,
Anonymous whispered: how are you graduated already you're only 18????????? how many years did it take for you to finish your degree, it sounds so fast. it amazes me *o*

ohhh/// it’s actually a diploma not a degree …sorry if that disappoints you ;u;

What I’ve just finished was a 1 year diploma course on Web Design and Animation;;; but before that, I actually tried taking up Multimedia Arts (which is a 4 year degree course) …unfortunately, it didn’t go so well.

You see, here in the Philippines we have grades 1-6 and then high school 1st-4th year, so you graduate high school at a rather young age (I was 16 then) right after that, you are excepted to immediately go to college…

During my freshman years in college, I had a really hard time coping with all the stress, pressures and anxieties that I ended up having depression. It also had something to do with the environment (but I won’t be elaborating on that;;;) Soon I would cut classes and come to school late on purpose because I just wasn’t feeling motivated anymore.

I only lasted 7 months in that course, then I took a few months off (hence my hikkikomori /slash/ soul searching days) and fought with my depression and tried to find meaning and purpose to my life once again… 

believe me it ain’t easy but I guess those few months off of college paid off because it sure did open my eyes and made me realize things I’d probably never realize if I stayed and just pulled my hair over things that aren’t even necessary.

SOOO YEAH;;;;;;

I took up web design and animation for a year so I could focus on something that I’ve always had interest in (other than art/drawing) so now I’m working on some video and web projects! //SO EXCITE

I’ll also be doing art commissions very very soon ^q^

Thank you so much for the message and I’m so sorry for replying late and super duper long// eue

As the saying goes;

"We’re all in the same game just different levels, dealing with the same hell just different devils."

(…that’s actually a line from a rap song lmaoo just wanted to put it there coz it seemed kinda cool ahahah)

Thanks again and have a nice day~! (❁´▽`❁)

Dear you,
randombookworm whispered: do you have visual snow? i have it and i need information

Yes I do!

Unfortunately, I’m not an expert on visual snow since I have no idea how the frickle frackle I got this weird vision exactly nor do I know if it’s treatable or not… BUT I could share what I do know!

image

If your vision looks grainy or there’s like a translucent layer of TV static (or reaally tiny moving particles/snow/molecules) then sorry to break it to you;;;; you most likely have visual snow.

It’s much more visible at night, in the dark or pitch black like when you close your eyes.

I’ve had visual snow since I was 7 (I’m 18 now, so that’s 12 years!) and I only found out last year that this wasn’t how everyone else saw things! I thought EVERYONE HAD TO DEAL WITH THIS 24/7!!

image

I made a post about my visual snow in the past, if you haven’t seen it yet, you can read it here [x]

anywho, VS is a “neurological condition”, that’s the reason why when you try to ask your eye doctor and describe what’s wrong, they’ll think you’re cray-cray because VS is quite rare and isn’t a well-known condition. Not to mention, researches being done on VS are very scarce.

Nobody in my family has VS, although I’ve read other people’s stories that everyone in their family has VS, so I’m not so sure if it’s genetically inherited or not.

Other than seeing TV static, other symptoms of those with VS include;

  • Tinnitus (hearing ringing, throbbing or buzzing in the ear)
  • Seeing Starbursts and halos around lights
  • Seeing Floaters (translucent circles or string-looking things)
  • Palinopsia (negative after-images, seeing movement trails)
  • Scotoma (distortion or blind spots)
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Vertigo (dizziness or swirling/spinning sensation)
  • Blue Field Entoptic Phenomenon (seeing white moving dots in the sky)
  • Other Entoptic Phenomenons such as; Purkinje Tree, Haidinger’s brush, Phosphene, etc.

image

some symptoms that I have which I don’t really know what they’re called;

  • Seeing moving blobs w/ colors (most of the time I see green, purple, red and blue)
  • Seeing thin and thick layers of semi-transparent colors around objects and people
  • Seeing translucent Honeycomb-like things

Those with VS are often ridiculed because their symptoms sound exactly like when you’re on hallucinogenic psychedelic drugs but I’ve never done any drugs before (unless you consider medicines for coughs and colds as drugs lol) and most VS sufferers have never done drugs as well so it’s not drug-related.

VS is most likely due to a chemical imbalance in the brain or something along those lines. However, people with VS have tried CT scans but they found nothing and all their results were normal.

Like I said, researches done on VS are scarce because it’s a very rare condition, plus it’s in the brain, and the brain is like; PRETTY COMPLEX… So yeah, there’s a whole different world up there!

Dedicated doctors are doing what they can to fully understand visual snow so they could find a cure and its causes. There are surveys being done on VS and I’m glad more people are becoming aware and learning about VS.

Below are some sites I’ve found where you can share your opinions, stories and experiences on visual snow, and also interact with those suffering from VS;

http://thosewithvisualsnow.yuku.com/
https://www.facebook.com/awarenessforvisualsnow
http://visualsnowawareness.weebly.com/
https://twitter.com/VisualSnowAware

That’s all the information that I could share for now (I’m sorry it took a while)

Those of us with mild visual snow can still live normally and function from day-to-day (though it’s there 24/7 and may seem distracting, there’s nothing much we can do so we’ve learned to just live with it and not let it get in the way from doing every day things)

but to those with severe VS, where their vision becomes distorted and it’s impossible to read, drive, etc. they really have it rough. That’s why we are hoping for answers on how to cure it as soon as possible!

We’re also hoping to spread the awareness for visual snow because it ain’t easy when everyone thinks you’re going nuts! It’s very real and someone out there might actually have VS but don’t know a thing or two about it!

(so pls feel free to share or reblog)

Stay strong and we can get through this all together!

HOWDY-DO!

I’VE GOTS ONE CLASS LEFT ON FRIDAY AND THEN FREEEDOMM! (well not exactly… i need to find a job and then earn some money so……. …uhhhhm)

YEAH.
