Paul Klee, Volleyball Graffiti, and a touch of Humble Pie

Hey guys. Yes, I totally missed Thursday, and yes, there was a sort of semi-reason behind that. The first reason is because I went to see STAR WAAAAAAARS! End of subject. The second reason is that I forgot. In my defense, art class is trying to kill me. No joke. But before we go on,… Continue reading Paul Klee, Volleyball Graffiti, and a touch of Humble Pie

Broken Bones, Murdered Fish, and Mom’s Stellar Painting Suggestions

Lately, I've been feeling the insatiable urge to paint a masterpiece. Which is great, if you know what to do it of. Which I didn't. As usual. So I did what any self-respecting teenager would do---I turned to my mother for help. WHY, I don't know, since she never suggests anything decent (AKA anything I… Continue reading Broken Bones, Murdered Fish, and Mom’s Stellar Painting Suggestions

She, Jadis of Charn — Short Story

Hello, peeps. Sooo... I wrote something. Shocker. No, um, actually, I was kinda playing with random words and making them sound epic, and basically, I somehow ended up with the prologue for the Chronicles of Narnia. Call that fanfiction if you will, but I am in firm denial of the fact that I wrote fanfiction.… Continue reading She, Jadis of Charn — Short Story

Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Apparently, today is Thanksgiving. (Otherwise known as "National Day of Food".) I would first like to state that I'm rather annoyed my posting schedule has to coincide with a holiday. It's very inconsiderate of the holiday. I had something lovely all written out, AHEAD OF TIME, just waiting to be posted. But then I realized… Continue reading Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Yesterday my family went to see Thor: Ragnarok in the theater, and seeing as I've once again totally dropped the ball on preparedness for my weekly post,… Continue reading Wisdom from the Utterly Stupid: Thor Ragnarok

When We Find Ourselves Asking God “Why?”

I was going to post something funny and lighthearted about the dangers of being a youngest child, but honestly, I am so tired right now, I don't have the mental capacity to be engaging. By now, you should probably know what that means. Guys, buckle down for another 2 AM talk with Sarah. What follows… Continue reading When We Find Ourselves Asking God “Why?”
