"Go and boil your bottoms, sons of a silly person! I blow my nose at you."

Name that movie!
That wasn't really related to anything other than the fact that I'm feeling a bit stabby today and picturing myself yelling barely coherent silliness at the internet makes me giggle a little bit in my brain.

As of late I've been pretty antsy. Not really sure what I want to do. I came to China thinking that I would be doing some modeling here, like I had in the states, but it's taking longer than I would have liked. We'll see if it works out at all.

I'm now left wondering what I want to be doing with my extra time. What I want to do in the future. I love so many different things and am trying to pursue them all, but in so doing, feel like I'm not pursuing any of them with enough effort or passion to really accomplish anything.

I feel like I'm flailing a bit. So, while I'm trying to figure out what I want, what I want to do with that, and how to do it, I'm introducing some new busywork in my life. Because discipline is a good thing to grab onto when you feel like you're flailing...Right? Or one of many good things. Eh.

The point is that I'm going to be drawing a new self portrait everyday for a month and will post it on here as part of the process of trying to figure myself out (Yes. Pictures of myself while I contemplate myself. Feel free to be impressed at how deep I am). Hopefully my art skillz might improve a little as well.

I'm sure you guys will get just as tired at seeing my stupid mug day after day as I will, so I'll try to keep them interesting. Maybe I'll draw me, as a dragon, spitting fireballs at Godzilla. Or maybe we can play a Where's Waldo? game where I'll try to hide something in the picture. Or maybe I'll just draw my face... You'll just have to check back and see.

Today's drawing:

Side Note:
Someone found my blog the other day by googling "pooping in fire". Clearly I must still be doing SOMETHING right. 



  1. Keep trying something will turn up. Bonza drawing i'll be waiting with baited breath for the next one.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I like your drawing, so much better than anything I could do. The movie? Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail, one of my favourites.

    1. YEs!! Glad someone got it. Best movie EVER!

  3. bahahah I love the search quote. Awesome picture Lauren. So creative, and that portion of your face looks gorgeous :) Skype tonight?


  4. I was just in France for a holiday, and I did shout these lines from walls of a castle. A few times. And then I saw a pigeon walk down the stairs despite having wings.

    The do things differently in France.

    I lived in Shanghai for a couple of months for work. It is a different world there. I prefer Hong Kong to the mainland. Good luck with the search

    1. That's awesome! Guess you don't need wings if you live in France. Since you're already flying high! Ooo snaaap!

  5. have you thought about writing and illustrating a children's book? I think you would be great! Aunt C

    1. Hey thanks! Lark and I thought that we might try someday soon. :)
