1. I keep get tinges of homesickness for England

    I wasn’t even born there. I am a first generation child & grandchild of English & Irish immigrants & was born in Florida but I was practically raised there every summer since I was born. Half of my family & friends live there & even less than half of my family live here.

    It’s been years since I last been. I was 16.

    It’s very indescribable feeling. I don’t even know why but nostalgia & homesickness is plaguing me. It’s very powerful and I don’t know why lately I’ve been clinging to it.

    I don’t even think it’s based on reality, more of an romantic idea of a past that isn’t the same anymore. Like it’s somehow comforting. I still feel a strong connection.

    I don’t feel truly "American" & yet I am not quite fully English/Irish either. I’m torn between the two and I feel like I have a confused identity because of it. I relate to both but don’t quite fit in either one. I mean I know it’s not a drastic cultural difference or anything: They are both English-speaking western first world cultures and it’s not a huge identity crisis or anything lol but to be honest I relate more the Irish/English side than this “American” side.

    I can’t even go a day without a cup of tea for god’s sake. I even drive around in a British flag adorned red Mini Cooper! I am the number one British sterotype lol.

    I am a hybrid - It’s awkward lol

    Are there any others out there like me?

  2. OHMYGOD!I went to my FIRST Morrissey Show, got up FRONT row, & then got what I always dreamed of…Morrissey holding my hand, looking straight at me as he sang “…So stay on my arm you little charmer” <3
(Hand in Glove, my favorite no less!)
you guys can watch the actual video here (x) I’m so glad someone caught it on video.It was so magical. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it was. There are no words, and I know it was for a brief lingering moment but it was just perfect. I still can’t believe that actually happened. I could almost cry everytime I see this and remember it. He is my hero in every way.The rest of the concert was fabulous, his voice sounded absolutely amazing. I hung onto every word. I danced, sung and smiled. It was so surreal.I can officially die happy now lolPS Never washing my hand again lmao jkjk

Me meeting Matchbox twenty &amp;&amp; giving Rob Thomas a present of artwork I did of his dog &#8220;Samy&#8221;

That was such an amazing moment.This was at the Goo Goo Dolls/Matchbox Twenty concert in Tampa. I was talking to &#8220;pookie&#8221; beforehand he was asking me where I was from and I told him Orlando/Casselberry and we were chatting about it since they started as a band in the central florida area so that was cool. Then Rob went to shake my hand and say &#8220;Hi my name is Rob&#8221; To which I replied &#8220;hi! My name&#8217;s Chelsea, I actually have a present for you, I did a portrait of your dog Samy&#8221;To which I heard Kyle look over and say &#8220;oh it&#8217;s Samy!&#8221; lol &amp; they all went to look at it.Caught in this moment is JUST as I gave the artwork to him. He stared at it for a few minutes without speaking. and he absolutely loved it and was so genuinly kind and sincere to me. 
He said "Thank you, Thank you so much, this is so sweet. I&#8217;m going to hang this in my studio&#8221;
HE&#8217;s going to hang it in his STUDIO!?!?!
How awesome is that?! :D
We took our pictures and then right before I left he waved at me and said &#8220;Thank you Chelsea!&#8221;
This is the actual scan of the artwork if anyone is curious :)

  12. I wish they still had clubs like this in Orlando </3

    Backbooth & Ibar 80s nights are pretty rad I’m not complaining though.

    But this looks more legit and an actual scene of unique people. Everytime me and my friends go to backbooth or ibar we are the ONLY people dressed ‘weird’ or 80s appropriate lol

    Thank god they’re doing a Visage reunion night! 

    They play (80s/90s/new wave/alternative/brit pop/classic punk/goth/industrial) so that means it must be automatically amazing. Never been but I’m hoping it’s as amazing as this video looks! :)

  13. Having Irish skin & living in FL is a terrible combination :(

    I literally bathed myself in 100 spf uva/uv sunscreen hours before I even went on the beach and I STILL burnt to a crisp :’(

About me

The Name’s Chelsea :)



I took my first breath on April 8 1992, which makes me 22

First & foremost I am an lifelong passionate Artist

Printmaking, Drawing, Painting & Creating are my THiNG

I see the world through a kaleidoscope of vivid colors, endless shapes & only the highest hues & day dreams. Good Luck trying to show me otherwise or Getting my head out the clouds lol

Music is a huge love for me. It's he soundtrack of my life, which is usually as endless & ever changing as my moods. From Classical to Punk, New wave to New romantics, grunge to Rock n Rollers, Blues & Progressive. I listen to EVERYTHING. But I have to say, most of the music I listen to is older than me lol xD My favorite genre is nostalgia. I am an advide Vinyl Collector.

&& if I don’t fill pages with paint, color or lines, they are filled with stories, words & poems. I Love writing.

Fashion & Makeup ♥ are another artistic outlet for me. I see myself as a canvas and I HAVE to express myself, its the artist in me. It's Don't be surprised if you see me in rhinestones, feathers in my hair or a crazy outfit.

I’m a total hippie at heart I can’t STAND wars, violence, drama, & hate. I never judge & I truly can not hold onto grudges - I don’t feel the need to spread negativity in the world, we already have too much.

I’m an Idealist & a perfectionist, a dreamer & a doer I am extremely open-minded & open-hearted, & Liberal in all sense of the word.

Nostalgia is a way of life for me. I'm in love with the past and convinced I was born in the wrong generation and time.

I'm an INFP

I am an Aries through & through

I'm the definition of a Blitz Kid//New Romantics Wannabe

I'm a total Harry Potter nerd :)
&& a very proud Hufflepuff :)

I am definitely a night owl.
Nighttime is my favorite time

England is my second home
Ireland is my third .
Irish Blood, English heart, American Born.

I love Books & Philosophy. Transcendentalism is one that I live by. Thoreau is my hero. John Lennon, even more so ♥

Boy George is also a HUGE inspiration to me, definitely one of my all-time heroes/idols etc. He completely changed my life for the better.

I can say the same for Adam Ant & David Bowie, Love doesn't Describe what I have for them :)

I'm a total nerd. I LOVE learning. History, theology, quantum physics, philosophy, and anything that ends in ology. I'm always asking questions, trying to find answers, challenging perspectives, and trying to enrich myself.

Most will see me as shy quiet & mostly introverted, but I’m not what I seem. I'll most probably surprise you :)
