Last Post Before Exams!

Hello! I am grumpy at the moment because in addition to having a math test TOMORROW, I also have a bunch of final-year exams next week. And we haven't even finished our biology unit yet. Go figure.

But anyways, I am also grumpy because that means my mother I will not let myself procrastinate by doing fun things. Like checking up on Derek Landy's blog. Or drawing fan art from DOSAB and DOBAS or Skulduggery Pleasant. (I am really hoping to do some SP fan art soon, because I'm working on some SP fan-fiction as well!) Or checking up on my pageviews and trying to imagine the life of the person who visited my blog, who, apparently, lives in Mauritius. If you reading this right now, Mauritius-habitant, HI!

So I leave you with this sketch I did a while back, and I hope you enjoy it.  Farewell until after my exams, and good luck to anyone who is also taking them! :)

P.S. If anyone has any comments or suggestions about my art, please feel free to comment!

Laini Taylor and Her Ultimate Awesomeness

I decided that a post was necessary, even though I just posted a couple of days ago. This post is NECESSARY because there are TWO amazing books out there that more people should read. Not kidding. Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Days of Blood and Starlight. And soon, Dreams of Gods and Monsters. All of this created by a person I revere as a god (Laini Taylor, if you ever read this, I'm not as creepy as I sound. Just an average teenage girl obsessing over awesome things, like your books) :).
After reading both of Laini Taylor's books, I found a passion for creating artwork based on the novel. Pictured above is the protagonist, Karou, and one of my favourite quotes from the book (despite being said by a creepy rejected angel thing that takes eternal piggy-backs). GREAT BOOK!
Please read it. The book deserves so much. You deserve so much.
I can't believe I have to wait until NEXT APRIL for the next book. :(

A photo and a memoir

Happy Hump-day!

Not in a weird way. You know, 'cause it's Wednesday. The middle of the a hump....oookkaaay. Actually though I live in a country where our week is from Sunday to Thursday. So all that TGIF stuff? Yeah, doesn't really apply.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago our English class finished reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding. I liked the plot, but for me the writing was too descriptive. Maybe the more appropriate title should have been 50 Different Ways to Say "It's Dark". But despite this tiny tiny shortcoming, I did enjoy reading. If your class does not covering, why not read it? After all, it is a classic. And, for some reason, you're supposed to read classics. Maybe it makes you sound smart? ANYWAYS we had to do a creative writing piece in class, and I chose the prompt to write a chapter from Ralph's memoir years later. It was around 700 words, and it's not too shabby, not to toot my own horn or anything :) Here's a piece that was my favourite:
"As I lay hidden in the forest, I simply existed. I was not Ralph, or a boy, or a human. I was a thing, an empty shell waiting to be filled with soul. I was a shield that protected nothing. After Piggy left my world, I did not live like the others – I existed in a state of being. My isolated world lost its colour, its fire, its passion. It lost the reds, the blues, the greens. A spectrum of greys took its place, and I lived among in the in-between, waiting in a situation that was never as simple as black and white."
So yeah. Yay! Hopefully I will get a good grade. And to brighten your day, here's a photo I took a couple months back for my photography class.

Hello world!


Hi there! I am a young female from a variety of different cultures. To date, I have lived in eight different countries in three continents. I love being exposed to so many different cultures, and it really opens up your life to so many possibilities.

I love to be creative, to do things with my hands, and to create things that I am proud of. On this blog you might see drawings, photos, poems, projects, food, and many others. Don't be surprised if I pick up a new hobby - I tend to do that extremely often.

One of my goals to really develop my own personal voice, and to share my ideas with the world. I am so excited to start posting, and I hope that I will find this another hobby that I can stick to :)
