Pinterest and Tumblr are full of all kinds of inspiring quotes. But here are some quotes from some very unlikely sources.
(These were all designed by yours truly… just to let you know.)
“If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be better than who you are.”-Shifu, Kung Fu Panda 3. Kung Fu Panda has a surprising abundance of deepness within its kung-fu-fighting, dumpling-eatingness.
Okay, so this quote is not from Wall-E himself. It’s from the Captain in Wall-E. You remember him? Exactly
Don’t be fooled, ya’ll.
Courtesy of the Hannah Montanah movie. Full of deep.
Kanye is the deepest. #votekanye2016 (just kidding, please don’t.)
And here we find some wisdom from a rap on Justin Bieber’s song “As Long as You Love Me.”
Now there’s bucket lists, and then there are reverse bucket lists. Things in your life you’ve already done. But I’m going to take it a step further and present you all with my reverse accidental bucket list. These are things I didn’t think would ever happen until they actually did happen. I think it’s fun to sit down and realize all the random cool things that have happened to you. If you want, think of some from your own life and comment a list!

So, by now everyone probably knows I draw A LOT. I actually didn’t really realize that it’s not normal for a teenage girl to spend so much time with colored pencils and paper. But this thing called High School has been preventing me from getting a lot done. Between school assignments and trying to maintain a social life, my paints have been poorly overlooked.
Yay!!!!! It’s SUMMER!!!!!!! (Sorry not sorry for the High School Musical gif.)
So, when most kids think of summer as a time to relax, I kinda see it as a time to GET THINGS DONE. I have so many projects I want to do, so many things I want to try, hobbies I want to start, and things I want to master. Not to mention a blog that I haven’t really been writing as much as I want to.
This summer, I will get back to the blog. For those, if there are any, people who have missed my blog posts, sorry! I’m posting twice today to make up for that. Or thrice. Yeah, thrice. Boom.
Have a great summer! Make the most of it!
This was kind of a while ago, but I forgot to post about my artwork getting in an art gallery! I participated in the Young American Talent Competition. “Prepping for Prom” is a colored pencil and watercolor pencil of two of my best friends. About 125 were chosen out of 600 entries from high school students around the Dallas area to be in the exhibition and competition. I didn’t win, but it’s already an achievement to get into the show, and it was so amazing to see my work in a gallery! The exhibit was held in the H. Paxton Moore Art Gallery in downtown Dallas. Who knows, maybe I’ll win something next year? In the meantime, I’m just glad I was chosen!
(P.S. It’s a coincidence that I’m blogging about “Preppin’ for Prom” when I am actually prepping for prom! I’m going this Saturday, and I’m super excited 🙂 )
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
This year, I was fortunate enough to get a Wacom Intuos Pen tablet. I love it!
First thing I drew: Hermione, of course!
I love the Wacom pen tablet. It’s so easy to use, and feels great. It makes drawing with a mouse feel like drawing with a bar of soap! This thing makes drawing on the computer sooooo much easier.
Here’s the finished product!
