I’m back and here are some updates!

Good morning world! (as oppose to “Hello World!” … get it? *programmer joke*)

I’ve been slacking with blogging… but I’ve decided to get back to it! I’ve since graduated from Computer Science and I’m now working! Woo go me! But it’s very difficult to get hired by companies at times because I lack the experience that’s required. Also, I’m terrible at the technical challenges. So in order to improve myself and get better at it, I am on hackerrank.com doing challenges there whenever I can! The contests they have on there is also fun to participate in if you have the time! I highly recommend it!

Computers and jobs aside, I’ve been having some issues with my gums and teeth for a while now.. and I’ve always been so cautious of what I eat because of it. And nothing I do seem to help it get better.

I’ve been eating very “healthy” and trying out many different diets… ranging from mainly fresh fruits and vegs and cutting out gluten and processed foods, eating milk kefir, making kombucha, intermittent fasting.. You name it! But none of it seems to help. It’s rather frustrating.

So I was talking to my best friend and she said something which made so much sense. She said maybe what you think is healthy is not actually that healthy because you don’t eat enough of those things to get enough nutrients in your body to heal your gums/teeth. So I thought about it and that’s right, when I was younger, I never had such problems with my gums and teeth because I ate everything, I didn’t restrict myself from any foods. So now instead of “cutting” foods from my diet, I just eat whatever my body is feeling like eating instead of saying “no I can’t eat that”.
I’m also taking supplements for iron, vitamin D and daily vitamin tablets to see if they will help.

On top of that I also do oil pulling with coconut oil once a day for 20 minutes (I read that it’s suppose to help with getting rid of bacteria in your mouth and keeps your mouth clean!), but I haven’t seen much of a difference to be honest, however I will keep it up just because my mouth does feel very clean after I do it.

So I’ll keep this updated to let you know how that goes! Not like you care but it’s almost like a way for me to keep blogging 🙂

Have a super Monday!

Starting the year 2015..

Why not start it with giving some gifts to my sister and her boyfriend who are only here for another 3 days.
I used water colour. Acrylics and a fine point black pen

This one I gave to Tony because him and my sister are doing the whole long distance thing and she’s much smaller than him

And this one I gave to my lil sister. The small one to the left represents her and the bigger one on the left is me. This was done all in water colour and is used masking fluid to help make the design on the feathers.

And just want to say all of my paintings are originals (so I don’t use reference). I like to think up ideas that are unique and personal so they really are one of a kind 😀

I do commissioned work and for more information and art work here’s my Facebook page:

And hope everyone is having a fabulous new year!

Portrait

Don’t ask who she is because I don’t know. I drew her out of imagination so no reference used. And to those drawing hair: patience and sharp pencils are key!

First attempt of watercolour painting

So my first attempt… Also first time painting a bird! Can you guess what bird it is? Probably not because it’s not great! Might add some more detail to it when it dries! I really don’t know how to use watercolour correctly! Eeeek! I guess practice makes perfect right? Haha
