ever-present roller coaster. (moodle.)

doodle arrows.

After abandoning my 52-weeks-of-drawing experiment after only two weeks, I thought I was over the whole drawing idea. But I guess not… because when I saw Haylee’s Moodle Army post, I was ready to enlist. [Groan. Sorry. That was awful.]

A moodle, according to Haylee, is a drawing to change your mood. I’m guessing she means changing your mood to a good one.

But this is me we’re talking about.

Changing my mood to good can be quite a challenge. I’m stuck in a constant battle. As soon as I realize I’m in a good mood, my brain begins to tell me all the reasons I shouldn’t be. Why must my head insist that I dwell on the things that bring me down?


I missed the first… but the theme for the second moodle is roller coaster. After about 10 seconds, I knew exactly what my doodle would be. My ever-present roller coaster. The one in my head.

See you next week. Maybe. No promises… 


I encourage you to join the doodling fun.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    It’s fab! And I’m also enjoying the little arrow doodles 🙂 It might be up and down inside your mind but I’m pleased your rider is looking like they’re having a ball. Glad you’ve taken part!

  5. I like art projects, but I’m not very good at developing the idea from the start. I tend to work off something that already exists, so I can see how the project was difficult for you. But if you like drawing, do whatever you want with it!
