Nora Land of the Leaves

Chapter 1: Aquariuscean

There was a period in time when Nora was guarded and protected by leaves. Guardians that were rumored to appear among humans in different forms. Humans grew curious of Aquariuscean were the Leaves dwell but not an enemy nor a map could show were Aquariuscean was. As time passed, humans began having less belief in them but the Leaves saw this an opportunity to be invisible and successfully guard the humans. This also meant Aquariuscean will not be exploited by humans but be conserved.

Aquariuscean was surrounded by water in which spine like glacier grew like grass. It had evergreen trees that reached the heavens which grew a variety of fruits. Flowers that smiled as the water gracefully sang entering their roots. A castle which stood on a mountain well detailed with gold and rich fruits. It was embroidered with grass were flowers grew and decorated with ancient language. The interior of the castle was made of glass which reflected anybody that entered.

Justin bieber

Voice: you are eager to come back go on enter!

Hey sassy Tacos it is my graysbygrace your very own rainbow shinning like the sun because it is  (everyday bro) beautiful! Namibia is actually receiving rain, that means harvest season will be so successful! Okay, so now it is time to reveal the second tip of the year and it is..

 

Tip # 2 Stop complaining, Be the first

 

I know this feeling! Always complaining how there are less black beauty brands in Namibia. Complain that less people are not sponsoring Artists in Namibia. Complaining that the Namibians do not have their own fashion style to describe them. Complain that.. Complaining that.. Well, stop!  It is a waste of time to complain because you were brought on this world to create, build and explore it. So it is time for you to be the first. Take that risk and stop complaining! It is that time to start taking that first step and be recognize as that designer, artist, writer and etc.  As 2018 is close by, most people want that recognition and yes it will come with a lot of sweat …I am who is in?

Runaway Girl Series :Tips before 2018

 

Table

Voice : Welcome fellow inhabitant, It seems your present awakens the day today.  Shall you take your step..please do not be afraid there is too much to explore and many people to see. Move your cursor downwards to see what is going on today.

 

[ Taking a step you enter a dark hole and slowly a bleak of light shines]

 

Whats up sassy Taco it’s me graysbygrace  your very own rainbow.  I hope you guys are having a wonderful day today because I am. I am happy! For no reason! It is almost 2018 and… move away December because January is my month. Yeah, it is almost my birthday and the second time the results  for grade 12 will be released in Namibia. Move away High school, University is calling my name! To start of the year I am going to have these bullets of tips to prepare anybody for 2018. It is a New Year right, We all want change!

 #1: Don’t tell people your plans show them your results

Now who has that guilty pleasure of posting a tweet just to his/her audience to be alert of that certain post in two weeks time. Then, suddenly the post is not successful because the internet was slow or you were so busy not to write or you just got bored. Raise of hands.. okay, I feel I am the only one.  I feel that the above quote does apply to me in so many ways sometimes I feel when I wait to long to post especially during these Holidays I am loosing an audience. So what I do instead is tell my audience of my plans to satisfy this feeling but they all fail which is quite sad because they are all so good and original content! Well, I have learned something and that is not tell people my plans but show them the results!  Yes, I want to be a film director but speaking all day and not showing it will not get me there! I will loose motivation and will not make it. Instead I need to surprise people! Plus there are jealous people who want to eat off your success so be careful you are just opening up a door for another person.  Adding on, when you release dreams, ideas, plans to a crowd of people they tend to have less respect for it because they do not know who you are(sometimes) or they just don’t care. I still wonder if it is a good idea to post goals/ New Year Resolutions to your audience? Will you still have that high interest to achieve them or not? I want to hear what you think? Comment down below.

Merry christmas and Happy late new year!!!

Announcement! Creativity! Passion!

 

Announcement!

Hey sassy Tacos,  it’s me Graysbygrace your very own rainbow..wait..what? I am blogging on a Monday!

 

(Christmas coral’s)

 

Its been a while..I am actually glad I am blogging and starting again runaway Girl series! Um, lately I have been busy thinking, studying and setting up a better efficient time management. I am ready to change and accept what ever God will gift me in this Path. Yes, I completed grade 12 and waiting for the results to come out. To tell you the truth I do not know when I will be buying that newspaper but this was a long fight. It is time to rest and enter a new path.

Creativity which I lost!

I guess, somewhere around I lost my creativity and my goals in life. Sometimes just waking up and being inspired can influence you in a positive way but have this negative glitch. Let me explain it before you get lost..I explored about artists on Instagram, Youtube and found new things I can try. While trying out these things I lost what I like to do and why I am doing what I am doing but somewhere around I found myself. I also believe my exploration stage has effect me so negative that I lost hope and started comparing my work to other peoples work.

A while back I started a Youtube a channel and had an idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to Vlog, do challenges and etc but realized something while sitting down and reading my notes. I never achieved my dream of becoming a successful director! Nor a illustrator, a writer but thank God to Diaries and journals! I mean right now I am typing in One Note and I found these interesting ideas for filming..wow..I am excited! After coming out of these realization stage I feel I lost my creative mind. I used to be a dreamer who had her plans. (okay, who is that one person that reads there blog post and finds so many error..sorry this is random but this is what this series is about) I also used to shot out ideas and tried them out. I made sure they worked and if they were not possible then I would write them down and later come back to them.  Let me make a confession right now! I had to do an interview to be chosen for an entrance in the Architecture course. I practiced before I entered and the idea was to speak about how I love sketching, fashion designing and graphic design which does not have anything to do with Architecture but look at this way interior design is somehow connected to Architecture and what I do. Instead,  I spoke more about Youtube and somehow the people interviewing me asked me about my youtube channel. it was awkward! Spoilers! I was not accepted and I am not upset maybe this is Gods plan. The interesting thing is I love watching people and how they act. I saw that when the people were looking at my video they wanted to see who is this Grace and how is she what she speaks about. Where is the work? Where is the art? Filming? Where is the script? Where is this creative girl? Yes, I know how to sketch but I have to find ways to be more creative then probably I will gain a larger audience and my work may go far.

 

Passion

The question still lies. What do I really want to do in the future and how will I do it? This is actually an early New Year resolution but orighty then! Yes, I want to be a lifestyle blogger who shares my path to all my audience and my blog will have an Arts page where I would post zines, a fashion page which will have all my illustrations and Runaway Girl series- a chance  to speak to my audience. As for youtube I want to go into 2d animation and make those fantasy come true. Remember Almid? Well, it will come back ..stay tuned. I once told an arthor I want to write a book, my English teacher told me I could not write ( I mean I still mess up! You can find errors in this blog post)  but I am not quitting because I will write that adventures book and Almid Reshanbid is the beginning shall we continue?…

I’ll be seeing you around hope you keep that positivism. Remember to be you, stay true and may the Lord keep you safe in what you do.

ZineMas: True Meaning of Christmas

SAM_8632

[True Meaning of Christmas]

10 December 2017

The summer breeze echos.

It is an early morning and preparing food is a tradition.

Today,

on a wide table the family tree will gather together.

It is a dream disguising as a Fantasy.

An expedition through time.

An outstanding job that will need a trophy.

They say Christmas is all about gifts but

being with the people you love is one of the greatest gift.

It is a true memoir.

We are shooting Eagles in the sky reaching for abstract moments.

BlogMas: ZineMas1

SAM_8533

[confidence] on youtube: #ZineMas

Lets speak about confidence

something that I lost with self-esteem

Just another headline in my life

\which gave birth to isolation.

An adventure that provokes

unpleasant thoughts.

It outlines everybody as a monster-reaching-to ruin my soul.

The desire to grow out of it is a long distance realtionship

A controversy awaiting to be released.

Now, where is that Eagle?

Perfect Place

Zine 2

We are shooting Eagles in the sky reaching for abstract moments

Inherited names destined to rot like ashes on the ground

Diverse individuals limited by time continuously delivering faith, love and pain.

Who are we? why are we here?

I skim through the streets and see an old man begging for money

I see a woman selling her body

I see a young generation sleeping on the streets

I hold back my tears and ANGER grows within me.

NEWS FLASH

hundreds die 

injustice shots #blacklivesmatter

young girl kills herself after marriage.

Where is my God? Where is my God?

Girl got dreams but has a barn at 14

Boy loves poker and feeds his pride

Drugs hit teens, yeah that’s all about fame.

you know, they say money buys happiness

let me say it’s just a drug which we inhale

to satisfy our needs and wants.

oh, can you hear mother nature cry!

what have you done?

Stop in the name for peace.

End the hunger name.

build a mountain, Rainbow nation


Our picture for a perfect world is a dream ..okay, it is a goal. I believe problems allow us to grow and build our-self. These problems that we face are a challenges that we need to except. This piece showcases all the problems that are faced within my community and the world. This is the second zine that I have created..I am really sad because the zine is not well presented. I use purple for headings and writing. Any tips??
