Whats up sassytaco it’s me graysbygrace and well, I am back with another blog post and I hope you guys are doing fine. Comment down below How is your day? What have you done today? How is November treating you? I have decided to speak about what movies that I have watched that are not bad but there are movies that I would not watch.. again ..maybe.

I love me some Tyler Perry movies but this one, I did not get . Probably it is because I am not quite into romance but I mean there were some psychological concepts..I still didn’t get it. I made it till the end and I just felt lost. NO.NO 1 star out of 7.

This movie was being hyped and I was warned by fellow predator fans that it is horrible but I went with an open mind. I was not at all satisfied and I feel every time the predator is always coming on earth showing off his invisible skill. When is there going to be change and all they left with the audience is a new kind of predator…2 stars our of 6

It was first toys,dolls and now clowns. This movie was hyped to the point that I aimed to watch it but I came out thinking what I was thinking. First of all this maybe out of topic but ”THE NUN” was not scary and ”IT” was not. 2 out of 6 .

Exams have ended and I am drained


Yes, I am back with another blog post and I am quite excited to be sitting down and typing. I hope you are all having a wonderful day today and you should be because life should not be wasted with an unhappy face. As exams were happening I was thinking about what is the next step with my blog and where do I see it in the future because I want it to be different from my youtube and Ello account as well as Instagram. During that period I also joined BLOGTOBER which ended up as a flop because I just could not keep up with it. But now I am on a lonng break which will soon be cut because I will be traveling( Not that big).


After the exams there was a wedding ( My uncle got married) which actually ruined my sleeping hours and now I am waking up 10:00am everyday which I changed a while back  because I felt I just wasted alot of time. Now it is BACK! Hopefully I can change my sleeping hours because goshh this can not be like this for long. I am mentally, emotional and physically happy but nothing on the updates of  health.


I have seen I am improving but I still feel I am not that confident at putting my artwork out there. I feel this is normal for any artist especially when you are surrounded with criticism. I have listened to a lot of people tell me do this but I just can’t. I am taking a few steps by entering exhibition competitions which can be found on the Ello website. By the way, I have decided to make my Ello page my portfolio because I feel my blog should slowly move away from my art and concentrate on something else. I am doing great! Apart from that I am learning new styles of art which I am happy to do on my blog as comics or just illustrations. As you can see above I have tried one. I just feel I have been stuck in the bubble with realism and I am tired so I am taking a new approach. Here is a video below in which I attempt to do this cartoon challenge.

As for my Instagram account I decided to make it my zine or mini zine which I will update everyday! I always wanted to create a zine and I had a long thought on what I should do with my Instgram account. I wanted to delete it at first because it is soo boring just getting tired of the luxury feeds and becoming jealous of other peoples success. Hopefully I get a phone soon so that I can control what I want to see on my feeds because I just miss my artsy friends feeds.

I would love to know how you are doing? What you have been up to? Where are you from? How is the weather where you are?

Blogtober: What I have been up to?

Whats up sassy taco it’s me graysbygrace and I hope you are all having a wonderful day because it is almost the weekend.

Lately, I have not been posting videos on Youtube  and that is because it is exams week and I am busy STUDYING! I would do speed digital paintings but I thought back and I want to stick into making an animation channel. From the beginning I wanted to start a short film channel but I kept going back and fourth trying to figure what I wanted to do. I feel I have finally found out what I really want on my channel. Hopefully I can make more animations out of the stories that I create.  After the exams I will come back as I am trying to do more research as well as writing and writing.  There is also exciting projects that I am working on which I am excited to begin with.

So, how are you? How are you doing?

Blogtober: Study Smart, Study Less


Exams are quite close..I mean tomorrow and some of us really need tips for studying, time management and motivation! Whats up sassy tacos..Unicorns! It’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow! I hope you guys are having a wonderful day because I am ..I am doing the most being the best and aiming high.

Yes, finally I am going to write about something that I feel will help a lot of people! I am really excited to sit down , type this and hopefully I don’t write way too much to the point that I need to delete some ideas.

Time Mangement

The first step into studying and has been repeated a lot in school is having an efficient time management. A lot of people I have met do really have horrible time management and I can’t deny I fall into that category. We tend to always complain we don’t have time for that ..I don’t have time for that but behind all those excuses, we know we waste a lot of time on unnecessary activities. Before you start studying you need to plan out which course takes up a lot of time especially those that have a lot of reading materials such as for me it would be Psychology. So this means I need to read all the materials (books, research and etc) before my exams. Why is this? So you don’t get overwhelmed when you are about to study.

Another important strategy to take in mind is summarizing and understand your own notes. There are so many methods out there that could help you with organizing your notes . My favorite and was taught to me through high school is the Cornell Method. I also use mind maps which was introduced by my History Teacher. *one of the best- she deserves a reward*  I can tell you my favorites of favorites but they might not work for you and this means your need to find out what works with you.

As you have your notes ready, read your materials  before your exams, you need to also  know  when your writing your exams. Obviously, I knew my exams would be in October so for sure I was already preparing my notes ( especially psychology). This is important because now you can set up which dates you really need to prepare for exams or read your materials.


Now, the best way to set up your studying  periods or time is to actually test them out. You have to understand yourself and be as honest as possible. How long does it take you to actually be bored? How long can read without distraction? You need to study your self too! Yes, you can read and plan to read the whole day but you can only concentrate for a limited time. If you are successful in doing this 4 am studying thing go ahead. * if you are getting the result*  If you are not, let me help you. What you can do is split your time on the activities that you want to spend on. If the activity takes you a longer period time such as reading than you should have a longer time set for it. If you are going to study than my advice is start timing yourself 25-30 minutes. Why? This is mostly how long you can concentrate.  This method above also helps with procrastination.

Time Mangement 2

Another advice to keep in mind is to take a break because if you continuously put yourself under pressure than you won’t at all concentrate. This also includes getting enough sleep before your exams. One thing for sure, you should NOT be studying one day before your exams that should be your REVISING period.  Why? we tend to complain about how tired we are and yet when asked what time you slept? The respond would be 1 am.. *Of course you will be tired! Do not do this if you are not used to it ..warning with experience!* Adding on to this after revising one day before my text/exams I have realized  which topics I don’t understand and how well I understand a topic. This also shows how much you are taking in the exam. One of my teacher told me it is good to be over confident when writing an  exam but you are not learning anything at all because you know the answer. So, go into that exam with what you carry and remember you will need do some mistakes because that is how you will learn.


I feel the first step into being motivated is Preparation because if you have everything well organized than you tend not to have anxiety. They say how you start the day is how you will end the day so I feel the same thing applies to how you start studying for an exam.  Workout! Journal! Spend at least 10-20 minutes with just yourself. Take care of your self because if you are mentally prepared and physical then success is on your way.

I hope you all enjoyed reading my blog post and If you have other tips, please do comment below! See you tomorrow and I will do an entry on how my exams went.

Blogtober: Bucket List (2018)


Hi 🙂

Whats up unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and Happy Tuesday! Also I guess if you are American Happy Boss day! I don’t think this is widely celebrated but I mean wow! who knew it ..boss day.

On today’s entry I am going to  list down some of the items that are on my bucket list. I know they are costly but I have realized once you want these items, you would want a job.

NUMBER 1: Ipod touch


Look at this baby..idk I just feel I need to upgrade I got an ipod but for sure it ain’t from this Generation.. also for sure it ain’t like this. *staring for hours*

Number 2: Ipad Pro


*fainted* [Peanuts falling to the ground] Ever since I watched a Youtuber speak about the Ipad pro I was like man, I got to get me one. I mean, I have seen the procreate in action but the Ipad has spoken to me *especially the gold one* and I can’t wait to get one of these to create my digital paintings as well as animations. Some day I am going to upgrade and if anybody gives me this *Birthday on the 23 January [Wink]* I know for sure I am dancing on ice.

Number 3:Ipad


I know I know. What is going on with you and the apple products? At least I have not asked for an Ipone*Don’t really need it* The one thing for sure is I really want a graphic tablet or an Ipad which contains a sim because I feel it will be less convenient. Being a student and not living in the hostel as well as a digital artist with a free break I want this.  I want all my requirements placed in one technology because hunny if you see what I carry around *camera, phone, computer and an ipod [idk the generation]* It is wayyyyyyy tooo much and I am a target.

Number 4: Camera

I feel if I get my ipad proooorrr! Than I am okay but you know dis expensive dis red bottom takes a bloody Job *No, i WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING FOR IT!* However If I do get a camera than it would probably be good at taking pictures because I have plans! *you will find out soon*

Well, I guess being a student and being broke is an everyday combination but soon Life will tell. I feel as one upgrades there tech so do they need to upgrade their life. I would love to know what are some items that are on your bucket list?..comment down below and I will see you tomorrow where I blah blah more. Thanks for your time and have a wonderful day.
