My Elvis and Priscilla Painting

I just finished my Elvis painting tonight and every time I look at it .... I bust out singing Hunka hunka burning love! Keanu just looks at me as if I have lost my mind and then I say to him why thank you.... thank you very much ( in my very bad Elvis voice )  So here is the painting!


Elvis had to be the older more flamboyant Elvis
and Priscilla was more mod make-up black hair look ( AKA the first Snooki )

Star Wars

Sunday I finally got to go to the Houston Health Museum to see the Star Wars exhibit. The best part was riding in the Millennium Falcon. My brothers and I were acting like we were 5 years old again and Keanu had fun too. I also got the chance to visit the Anatomy part of the museum ..... today was AMAZING! We are such nerds we all wore our Star Wars t-shirts and I put my hair in Princess Leia buns. I even wore my Darth Vader and Storm trooper rings that I had purchased at Toy Joy last year. Oh Yeah I love to be a nerd!!!!

Most pics by Matt Rivas

I had a BLAST :)

May The Force Be With You!

Saturday Morning

Today I feel so much better! Keanu and I are watching David Lynch's Eraserhead and eating dinner food instead of Breakfast. My brother Matt went to go pick up another Neo Geo and I am gonna get an Anime party going soon. My last party was Fantastic Mr.Fox last year. I just want to thank everyone who commented on my FB yesterday and gave me courage and strength .... it means a lot to me! So moving forward .... tomorrow I am going to the Health Museum to see the Star Wars exhibit FINALLY! My Elvis painting is almost finished too! I love Saturday mornings with my Keanu!

I am ugly and so TIRED

So this blog is about my life as Jennifer Ann Rivas (JAR) well here is the truth about me. I wake up everyday with a heavy heart and hatred for myself. Every night I wish to die in my sleep.The only thing pumping through my veins keeping me alive is my love for my son Keanu, but then again I make his life miserable with the chronic depression I suffer from.People look at me as if I have a good life and it's all fake. people in my faith judge me but only god knows my heart and this horrible depression and anxiety I suffer from. I hate myself to the core .... everything about me is UGLY. Everyday I am alone and all i ever wanted was someone to love me. I have always been who I am ... strange and different at times but as I say SO BE IT! I push people away so I don't get hurt ... but I always hurt . I cry everyday and pray for this pain to leave me alone. People talk about the new system and how all this pain and suffering will end .... but how can I think about that when my soul is already dead? What THE f IS HAPPINESS ANYWAYS .... being married and having friends? I hate being a single parent it's HARD and no one understands. I have given up on me and I hate life! All these people on FB seem happy and well put together emotionally but are they really?

THIS IS THE TRUTH and who I am

What I Do On Rainy Days

It's dark in my room and I'm home alone it's 9 AM and I am in my warm cozy bed listening to the rain. I am about to watch the movie Sylvia about Sylvia Plath and clean my room while listening to The Ghost  Of A Saber Tooth Tiger. Perfect day and I have it ALL TO MYSELF!

Now I will drink my hot tea and relax by myself :)

A Great Night!

Tonight is tremendously great! I ate some yummy Japanese food with great friends and now I am STUFFED. I have been painting Elvis and Priscilla this week and I'm starting a new project on Friday! I am trying to decide what color to dye my hair .... but it seems black will do for now. Tonight I am watching Tom Ford's movie A Single Man .... LOVE this movie! Colin Firth is my future Husband!!!! I will be going vintage shopping soon and blogging about more Make-Up tutorials also!!

Should I keep my hair Black ?

Or in between like a honey brown color??????

The Disintegration Of a Love Affair

Reality is more melancholy 

True Beauty has a sadness to it

True Beauty has to incorporate sadness in it

I don't believe in happy go lucky

The most important stories are the stories where people learn how to become themselves

The more you struggle in life the more you grow

I don't know what people are expecting of me, I don't really care

People see you with distorted eyes.....

Their waiting to find some mistake.....

They want to see something wrong with you.

- Sean Lennon

Good Night
