Doodles from 2015

I was going through old school papers and found some interesting doodles. Now, I am not a very good artist in this manner. I can take on anything with words, but when it comes to people… well, you’ll see. I went through a phase because I took a class where I was taught to make eyes, so I did that everywhere.

Those are my people. Now for some other doodles.

And then I was trying to do an outline of someone’s face.

I think it was turning out pretty well. If I had gone any further, it probably wouldn’t have gone very well.

My question for You: Do you enjoy doodling?

Sunday Thoughts: Perfection

No one is perfect.

I’m gonna bet that you’ve heard that phrase before. Everyone has, or should have heard it.

I have learned a lot over the past few weeks that people just aren’t perfect. It’s a shocking realization! No matter how perfect you think you are, sorry, but ya just aren’t.

People let you down; even your closets friends. You may think you know someone so well, and that nothing could ever come between you.

Let me share with you my sixteen years of wisdom. Friendships strengthen when you don’t expect the other to be perfect. I’m not saying think the worst of this person, so that you are pleasantly surprised that they’re actually nice! I’m saying, don’t set your expectations so high that no one can teach them.

And then again, some people are different and you need different expectations for them.

What I’ve learned is that you need to be the best you can be, and help others as much as you can without shoving them around and telling them that everything you think is right, and so on. Be encouraging, but let them find their own way.

As the Bible says, “Why do you care so much about the spam in your brother’s eye when you have a hog in your own?” Or something like that.

(Jared DeWhite)

Sorry… not sorry. Just a little Adventures in Odyssey quote for y’all.

Anywho, I hope I have gotten my point across without too much confusion. Have a wonderful week!

God bless.

The New School Year

With the new school year comes many things… for some, new teachers, classmates, classes, etc.

For me and my family, as well as most of my friends, we have the same teacher year round, but different classes, and same classmates, if you have siblings.

With High School comes different requirements, though, and over the past two years I have had to leave my comfort zone to take classes outside of my house to acquire those requirements.

On top of that, I have been a part of a homeschool co-op for as long as I can remember. There are academic, athletic, art, and literature classes there.

This fall semester, I am taking three different classes through our co-op; Multi-Media Art with Metal; Personal Finance, and I am co-teaching a Life Lessons with Jane Eyre class. I may finally put my literature knowledge to use!

Aside from the co-op, outside of the house I am taking chemistry, apologetics, Spanish 2, and piano.

My mom has been putting together our curriculum for the year, but I have yet to be informed on what I am doing in the house. The suspense intensifies!

A few of my favorite subjects have always been art, music, and English. I have been taking piano since I was ten, I have always had my hands in some form of art, and books… I just can’t get enough of them!

I will keep y’all updated on my progress through my junior year of High School!

My question for You: What were/are your favorite subjects in school?

“You might not have been born here, but you’re as Carthyan as I am.”

-Jaron from The Shadow Throne

I feel like I should give an explanation for this quote.

Jaron is speaking with someone he is made to marry from a neighboring country. Even though she was born from different blood, she spent her life in Carthya. She was more Carthyan than her own homeland.
