I haven’t been on here in a long time, a very long time at that. I’ve been caught up with an art course and my current job, and things are quite peachy at the moment.
However any negativity I feel is then channeled through my writings and drawings, so my art’s improving greatly.
‘Blackberries have multiple meanings across religious, ethnic and mythological realms. They have been used in Christian art to symbolize spiritual neglect or ignorance. Mid-Mediterranean folklore claims that Christ’s Crown of Thorns was made of blackberry runners. The deep color of the berries represents Christ’s blood. A legend also exists where the blackberry was once beautiful, but was cursed by Lucifer when he fell into the bush when forced out of heaven. Every September 30th, with the ripening and darkening of the berries, he is thought to re-enter them.
Some folklore associates the blackberry with bad omens. European stories have claimed they are death fruits with ties to Wicca. They can also symbolize sorrow. In an old proverb they signify haste. A man is so excited to pick the berries that he jumps into the bush and the thorns cause him to lose his eyesight. He regains it, however, upon jumping back out of the bush. Greek mythology contains a legend similar to this. When Bellerophon, a mortal, tries to ride Pegasus to Olympus, he falls and becomes blind and injured upon landing in a thorny bush. This is his punishment for trying to take the power of the gods. Therefore, the fruit also symbolizes arrogance.’
I finally have a job, hoorah

It’s not my image/story, nor is it scientifically accurate, so there’s no point
nintenbro64 asked: oh. well , where did you get them? i wanna' read more.
The stories with the black backgrounds in image format are creepypasta. A lot of the stuff on my blog are stories or snippets from areas of the web, or my own sources and ideologies
I don’t want to grow up.
I can’t stand the idea of being alone
