Bernard ‘little b’ bobbins, 13, has stolen £2.37 from his sister and is skating into town to meet his street gang friends called ‘rochdale riot squad’ by the cathedral near mcdonalds to do raps, eat 99p chicken mayo’s and get in everyone’s way. as an aspiring rapper and grime artist, little b takes his art seriously. tracks in his repertoire include ‘f*ck u @ mum’ - a song about when his mum took his ps4 controller because he was playing fifa at 1am on a school night , and a diss track about a rival grime collective known as ‘south rochdale massive’ - written because they started calling little b and his friends ‘bell ends’ and throwing straws at them in mcdonalds.
The first world that came to my mind when i read the word #angular - todays word in #inktober2018 - was shame. when i was a child i felt irregular in many ways - i remember the feeling that i was not that good at being a child and i remember feeling bad for my parents because they had to be parents to me. i was not good at sports, not good at play, felt like a coward in many situations, had a hard time to figure out how to belong in groups with those in my age. i was wrong and almost everyone else seemed to have figured it out - they seemed to know how to walk in a straight line, find the right way.
of course it wasnt that way, we were all trying to find our way but how could i know when i never was let in, never became close to anyone?
as a grownup i have sometimes felt that i want to follow the rules (and rulers 😉) a little to much in certain situations - i carry with me the experience of being an outsider and that makes me afraid relive that. but when i draw i feel free! and i certainly didnt use any ruler when i draw this corner!
I is for intention 🕉️
setting a daily intention is a lot like repeating a mantra. it is something you keep in mind 💭 throughout the day that reminds you what's important ⭐ to you or what you want to focus on. writing it down or setting a reminder ⏰ in your calendar can help you remember it as you go about your daily tasks.
create your daily intention by starting with
"today i will..." and end with one of the statements below, or make up your own.
today i will...
🤗 be kind to myself and others.
🎉 celebrate my strengths.
⏳ practice patience.
❤️ be understanding and empathetic.
✨ make others feel joy.
👍🏽 say only positive things about myself.
🙏🏽 say "thank you" more.
🙅🏽♀️ refrain from judgment.
🍃 let go of expectations.
