I've dabbled with origami over the years, always having been decent at crafts, but for Christmas this year, I decided to make gifts instead of buy them. Included are a pentagonal star for the family Xmas tree, handmade cards from card, felt & foil, a collection of origami pugs I designed myself for my pug-obesessed family & a vase of tulips & photoframes that I made for my friend's wedding back in October. Hope you like :)

So, I was going through my computer & found some files from a few years ago. Amongst them, was this spoken word piece that I wrote for an Open Mic event in Southampton during the Winter of 2015. The audience loved it & I was asked to do more, but my depression got the better of me & I've not written much since.

Congratulations @avicus78 great text! Unfortunately it is the realities that we live. Here in Brazil I believe that scenario is even worse.At the beginning of the post you mentioned that you stopped writing because of depression. I want to tell you that the same thing happened to me, alias, (I noticed that we use the same language in the form of writing and expressing ourselves)But what I mean is do not give up writing, I loved the text and I think you can reach many people through your writing.Have a great year! Kisses Doce

Thank you for your kind words @doce, they mean a lot. I can only imagine how bad the situation is in Brazil & many other areas of the world, where poverty is high, & it is truly heartbreaking. Here's hoping that 2018 brings with it strength for us to move forward & help those less fortune than ourselves along the way. Peace & love <3

Firstly, a belated Happy New Year to anyone reading this! I hope you had a great time over the festive period, with your families & friends, even better if you got to party with fellow SG members! :)

Anyhow...

So, you may have noticed, though likely not, that I don't post too often on here & there are a number of reasons for that. However...

Hi - it's been a while. I've been keeping myself busy with the anime & gaming community that I'm involved with.

Since I last posted, I'm now a cosplay & radio moderator, and I've also been fortunate enough to be given a shot at presenting shows, so a few weekends ago I headed to Earls Court, London for the WLFCC. Dressed...

Sorry I've not been posting much this year. I've gotten involved in a community of geeks, gamers & cosplayers called Anime League & it's taking up most of my free time. I joined their staff back in Feb & since then I've been helping run their cosplay section, a small RP section & put out a couple of radio...

Can't stop listening to Black Moon by Deftones, featuring B Real. Just mellow, with a catchy bass riff & B Real's usual lyrical style.

That is all. Hope you're good, people.

Hope you've all had a great couple of days, eating, drinking & seeing friends & family. Kudos to you if you've done anything charitable <3

Just wanted to share with you my excitement at getting not only a CD of Deftones: B-Sides & Rarities & Fleetwood Mac: The Chain (25 Years 4-Disc Set), which are both awesome in themselves, but also Crystal Visions...

Hey all. If you're a gamer, like me, then you might enjoy reading this article & trying to catch the accompanying documentary on the UK's Channel 4 app, 4OD. I've not yet watched the doc, but have been a fan of Charlie Brooker for ages, so can't imagine it to be bad at all.

Here's the article on The Guardian...

Finally, after 13 long years & lots of promises, Deltron 3030 have released their follow up to their debut, eponymous album! Just got it through the post & although not as instantly addictive as its predecessor, I think it'll grow on me pretty damn quick! With a host of guest artists, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mary Elizabeth Winsted, Zach de la Rocha, Lonely Island, Damon...
