Drawings.

I like to draw, doodle, or whatever you call it. I don't call myself a 'professional artist', as i don't really specialise in fine arts, or have some masters degree in it YET! Though i hope to in the future!

I'm gonna rant about some people, or majority of students. Basically, art is an elective subject that you can take, right? In the NA stream at my school, all of us are forced to select an elective subject in sec two, and it will be our course subject for upper secondary. There are three (or four, depending on your math lol), Art, Food & Nutrition, Design and Tech and Amath. I chose Art, and in my arts class, there are probably less than half of the class that are actually interested in art (drawing, painting, etc etc). I noticed the rest of the class don't really have an interest in the arts. They chose it because they though that taking art as a course subject would be easier to pass, since F&N has food science, D&T is more hands on, machines and stuff. 

Since art is usually considered a 'free' subject, and by that i mean that art can be beautiful to one, and ugly to another. For example, i create something by expressing all my thoughts, sorrow, or happiness all in one drawing. To me, i might think it's the most gorgeous art piece ever created, but my friend might think it's a piece of shit. See how i emphasised the word 'shit'? Anyways, since art can be so subjective, some people might use it as an excuse-I'm really serious about this-They take art because as it can be influenced by others opinions, judgements, they think they can get out of doing badly. Obviously by saying that it really is something important to them etc. Until you form a really close friendship with that person, and you realise they do it because they think they won't excel in the other electives. 

I'm not saying that it's wrong to form your own opinions and offend those who really create pieces of beautiful artworks that truly are, you. But there really are some that join for the sake of choosing an elective, and for the rest of their secondary school years, are not really dedicated to it. If they really had no choice but to choose art, at least TRY to excel in it! I'm not talking about straight A's, but I honestly have a really strong desire to join an art class where everyone really is dedicated. I wouldn't mind competing with many many students that are excellent in art, but i slightly despise those that disrupt the class, or just make the teacher spend unnecessary time just to scold the student.


Not pointing any fingers here lol, guys this is why i wanted to limit my blog readers or even private it, since i might post something offensive or hurtful to others. So, i would apologise sincerely if i have offended any of you in the audience, and note that these are all just my personal opinions.

Thanks for reading.

Healing

I've realised something- I haven't been too honest with myself. I'm talking about feelings, thoughts, anything that comes to mind. And I haven't been honest with you, too, those on my blog right now. For those that have been reading my blog for the past almost three years, the first year was fun. Pure, innocent, a 13 year old discovering herself, basically. Second year, a tad bit more emotional and personal. A bit of a break from blogging though, and definitely improvements in my writing. Made some friends online, it was fun.
Remember that affiliates linking thing I had? And that little chat box? Unfortunately, because of my content that has evolved through the years, I removed anything that could link people to my blog. Third year, come on. I pretty much stopped blogging for half a year I think, and mainly because I've gotten busy and I stopped trusting my blog. I've been afraid, you know? So afraid of people finding out how I feel and how I think. I don'…

It's my birthday.

I just turned 16 today. Obligatory, I had to write about it. As i've said lots of times, 2016 has been so incredibly busy for me. I think, it's mostly filled with achievements. Oh, and, I just realised i had a draft third blogoversary post that still isn't completed, but lets just forget about it alright? You guys know what i've been up to, so i don't have to repeat them again. I'm 16 now. I created a bank account recently, found a job, have great friends, and i think i'm on my way to realising that a certain someone just isn't worth it anymore. I had much more to write just now, but i've kinda lost the mood a little. I think you'll understand. I'll publish this little thing and update it further on. You'll understand. Excuse the informality.
The third blogoversary is in a few days now, and i honestly don't have much prepared to post because i'm just rotting at home. But since this is merely a life blog, i'm just gonna say some things to my future self.
1. Stop over reacting
2. Stop being so paranoid
3. You know that saying all this won't help with your paranoia, but just calm down.
4. Everything is gonna be fineeee

Anyway, i don't have much left. To be honest, i'm not sure if i've just forgotten that this MY blog and i can post anything i want, but i think i've gotten a little afraid of revealing my feelings. I have all these secrets and everything that are so hard to just express and even tiny things can be hidden through simple questions and i can't even tell people the reasons why i don't want to do this or i don't want to do that. I don't have anything to hide, honestly, but i'm just afraid that whatever i say will be used against me. This also made me feel really gu…
