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.

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.

 

(Designerr- Panda)

 

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.

Runaway Girls: Black girl magic

 

Rihanna

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and wow what a week!!! Sorry for not blogging lately ..well, I am just stuck with school and time management but I promise this will be resolved. Going on, I have realized how I am spending too much time on the future but not on the present. The idea is to have short term goals and build them. As a teenager now entering in the “young adulthood” I feel really .. not..motivated! It seems school has began to get boring and I am finding ways to fix my C’s into A’s. There is so much to do such as should I go with Kaplan or Polytechnic of Namibia either way it’s a journey…Um.. thats enough!

Am I growing?

Yes, I am now into digital art and aim.. I am telling everybody this right now to create a comic! That is why I created my development Artsy Channel which a kind supportive friend of mine suggested! It’s so nice to have the support!! Go check it out because more is coming and I will also like to know unicorns who else do you think I should follow for inspiration?

I want to know from you how is your Sunday so far?

Runaway Girl Series: Shameless Promotion

Graysface

Hey Unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and may I say happy Friday! I hope your all having a wonderful Friday because I am feeling me, doing me and being me..if that makes sense. I want to know what you did today in a sequence you know because I want to interact with you guys and get to know you better.

On today’s menu I am going to be exploring two things which are Maya’s video and also an artist I am so addicted to this year.

shameless Maya

Laovaan

Mayas video

If you are boo or part of the boo challenge then you might as well as know Maya’s World! I mean who doesn’t ..I will give you a brief introduction. She is an amazing, talented, inspirational Youtuber, and I also heard photographer who gave out the challenge for talented people sitting on their dreams to do something! I mean how cool is that! In her video below she explains how shy she was or “ashamed” keeping in mind that she was bubbled up with her creative ideas.  She give that a stop and decided to go shameless!

“What would happen if I shamelessly promoted myself for 365 days?” was the question and social media experiment marking the start of Maya’s online self-discovery.

Laovaan Video+thoughts

What is art? Why do professor call Manga, fashion designs or anything simple that does not connect to Van Gogh ..Picasso or simply “art”. When you enter an art class for the first time the teachers would always advice you to connect to your life so that you may apply that to your artworks but sometimes our love such as Manga may not be exceptional. Well his video is similar to this scenario above but it did not end in high school it continued in University too. He needed to divide his work into pieces for university and pieces for him[ I don’t really know how to explain this but I hope you understand]. I wanna know what you think?

Let me say I have joined an art competition and lost. I left with my ballet art and closed the doors of the competitive world! It’s a shame that they were looking for new ideas but I will never understand them. Maybe at that moment it was time for me divide my work with the competitive world. Who knows????

 

My thoughts

I am bubbled with these ideas in my head. I mean, how many opportunities have I closed down because I feel I am not good enough. Plus, I am working on so much perfection that I have grown so much- if you have been following my journey. From finger art which looks so bad towards sketch and learning how to blend. I was going through a journey! You know what I realized? I have not been honest to myself and you guys throughout my journey but now I have decided today I am going shameless!

what would happen of I shamelessly promoted myself online?

Well, I am tired of judging myself I am going to take these opportunities that have came across my path and do me. I mean yes, I will fail but it’s better to try something and fail than sit there and do nothing at all.

I choose these two videos because I realized that something in my journey was not just right! Here I am joining these communities trying to look for opportunities while there sitting right there. I am closing too many doors and it’s time I start opening them and being me. It’s time to be the Medusa that I have created and be fearless!

I wanna know what you think Unicorns? If you are boo I want to connect how are you?

Runaway girl Series: Why I blog?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace and happy Friday ! I am feeling happyliciousmountslaying! I hope your doing well and having a great Friday.

If your reading this your probably here to find out why I love blogging but here are the reasons:

1.

I love meeting people who have similar likes. It’s like living in a world with people who actually go through with what your going through and you don’t feel alone.

3.

Sharing to inspire is one of my goals and I believe every year I go through a changing phase because I am learning.

4.

I love creating and when I learned about the WordPress platform I didn’t let go of the chance to be known around the different social media platforms.  I created my own world in hopes that one day I will be proud of taking a shameless risk. #doyouboo

5.

Well, I didn’t make it as an influential teen Blogger since I have  reached my adulthood but I did get a chance to grow my goals as a Fantasy Fashion Blogger. Yes, I welcome you in this journey “Runaway Girl Series”

Hey, I want to know your reasons.
