The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like". (At… Continue reading The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Concept Art and Phony Color Wheels

Embarrassing story time. (Because that's obviously the best way to start a post.) You know how I spent the last few months whining about my art class? Heralding the end of it in January as my salvation from the drudgery of modern art? Claiming how free I would be, and how I was NEVER going… Continue reading Concept Art and Phony Color Wheels

Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Monday was the last day of art class, and I have but one thing to say to you all: FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM. *wild screeching* *energetic fist-pumping* *crazed cackling* *flips the table* I get to paint what I want now. No more modern art. No more mutilated-looking fish. Nothing but a blank canvas and the prospect of as… Continue reading Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear

My sister is in Peru. (Smooth, Sarah. Just jump right in, and maybe they won't notice that you skipped the intro after seventeen failed attempts to write one.) As of yesterday, my sister has been in Peru for a week, and she'll stay in Peru for another week yet. Laying concrete, or something equally monotonous.… Continue reading Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear

Wisdom from the Utterly Awesome: The Last Jedi

Guys, do you realize what this is? This is a momentous occasion. You are reading the last blog post I'll ever publish in 2017. Naturally, it's about Star Wars. SO. I got to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi ON OPENING NIGHT, Y'ALL, and it's taken me this long to sum up the incoherent flailings… Continue reading Wisdom from the Utterly Awesome: The Last Jedi

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

Mary, Monkey, and a Student Showcase

Last Monday was the last day of my homeschool co-op's art class. To commemorate my great achievement of making it through two whole semesters without dying from an overdose of people, I'm doing another art post. If I randomly yell "You shall not PASS!!!" in the middle of it, please forgive me. My brain is… Continue reading Mary, Monkey, and a Student Showcase

Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters

I had plans for this blog post. For the first time in my life, I wrote it a week before I was supposed to publish it. I would wait for Thursday and post it like any respectable blogger. Right? Wrong. My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
