So the other day, I was pretty bored, so I got the white replaceable back of my phone and doodled on it with Sharpies. I’m not too sure if I like it though cause I never like having fancy stuff, it makes me feel weird. I used a design that was loosely based off a book of henna patterns, and I added some more stuff in too.
To all of you followers who still exist… Thank you. I’m not a very good blogger, am I? Well I have some reasons for my absence. Blatant excuses.
It’s so dark here? As soon as I get home it’s too dark to take photos of anythingwhatsoever.
And also, school is cruel to me, and I’m a total procrastinator, so basically, I spend my free time sitting around eating trying to do my homework and failing and not doing my homework and still spending four hours on it. Every night. I hate homework. Homework is my arch nemesis. I’m not violent, but if homework was something I would kill, I would kill it a million times. I would cast homework into the depths of Tartarus to suffer forever with the titans.
Yeah, I don’t really like homework. Or work. Gimme a ukulele, a piano, a wire cutters and wire, a notebook/sketchbook, a pencil, and an unlimited supply of chai and chocolate and send me to the woods for the rest of my life, then I’d be happy, and productive. There are an unlimited supply of curse words in numerous languages that I would use to describe the education system, all of which too vulgar to use here. Ah well…
So yeah, I’ve not been doing much recently, but I’ve been drawing a good bit, of course. I loooooove drawing.
It’s watching you….
Yeah but I had a good Christmas. I didn’t get too much stuff, thank god. Just the things I actually wanted and needed. Including a HAMMOCK sorry I still can’t handle the fact that this summer I’ll be able to camp hanging between two trees. And I got looooads of books. Good ones. I’m so excited. There’s nature books, some by Tom Brown, basically the most inspiring writer evvvveeeeerrrr, ones about animal folklore, survival guides, and then lots of French books to help me learn, incuding Harry Potter and Greek mythology French books. I’m so excited to read them all, I don’t know where to start.
And oh. Did I mention the chocolate? Thought not. There’s a LOT of chocolate.
I’ve been drawing loads of these lately, and I don’t know why. Drawings of young girls saying goodbye to an animal that they look like in some way. I’ve done deer, birds, and I’m in the middle of doing a wolf right now.
I don’t really know why. I was thinking about what they might represent, and I kind of thought that it’s like, that there is a part of you which only one other thing understands, this spirit of play and imagination. But then when you grow old, you lose that spirit and you are left alone in the world being this strange creature because the only thing which understands you is gone. Also there are little faces in the trees which are kind of like people watching. I dunno.
Don’t listen to me. I’m just crazy, ok?
