"And so it was that the bush burned with a great fire, but was not consumed"


if you would like to follow me, email me at michelle.hooper@furman.edu

I'm an emotional massochist and exhibitionist. There's a sad irony that keeps following me around, so finally I put it on a leash and gave it a name. I keep it in my pocket now and touch it when I need to be reminded that I am an artist, and the path of the artist is not smooth. But then, neither am I.

comments: "It's how I make my choices? I consider the consequence, understand it, and still choose to do what I do. It's like I'm on a highway with a sign that says, 'Heaven this way' and I decide to go off-roading"

The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
