New Year Resolution| Be creative

Be creativeFade In



[ The night cries tears of pain]


Silence speaks and the cricket sings his solo. The moon arose smiling as the main land wondered in their dreams. In a snap, a glass breaks in the chambers of the royals and a scream echoes from hall to hall. Footsteps speed like giants rushing to the chambers and there, Princess Jade flooded with tears on the floor. She slowly awoke and gasped saying, “he is gone”. A guard shouts outside, ” Open the gates!” Slowly the main lands awoke as the news spread for their missing Prince.


He is missing?oh, the king!


What king???

To celebrate this wonderful day I have decided instead of posting the New Years Resolution on the 1 of January it should be posted on the 23 January because I am going into extreme adulthood ..Just turned 21, graduated high school( long story ) and accepted at the University of Namibia ( Stay tuned to find out which course I am taking). This is a great celebration!!!

  • Start a consistence Youtube Channel that has Great Ideas and Entertaining topics ( Short films, Vlogs and story times – this will be done as Animations) The posting day is set to be Friday.
  • Be creative when doing digital work, Animating, screen writing and Journals. This can be done by exploring more artists and exaggerate my work.
  • Build my animation skills by exploring/ searching for examples of traditional animation, 2d Animation and 3d Animation
  • Start going out more this would help me build my self confidence and know Windhoek!
  • Journal Everyday!!! Do it during the day while the sun is up!!!

First of all let us all clap for my organisation on this blog these points , numbering and headings got me excited! On to topic the change that you will be expecting is , I will be writing more short stories and sharing my art on this blog! I have been exploring and testing out  a lot of niches(I do not know if that is what you call it)..if you do not know I was once a fashion blogger and changed into a lifestyle blogger but as I explored I realized that Art and short stories is my niche. This means more illustrations and digital Work!! You can follow my Instagram to see my latest work and if your interested in collaborating I am in! How about it? I am going to be an animator so you will be updated on the blog when my work will be posted on YouTube but do not feel afraid to check out ”GRAYSBYGRACE” on YouTube!

Announcement! Creativity! Passion!



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.



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.

BlogMas: ZineMas1


[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.


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??

Existence (Isolation)

yasssTime an imaginary measurement that we all obey.

A second becomes a minute, a minute becomes a hour , a hour becomes a day , a day becomes a week , a week becomes a month and a month becomes a year.

This all begins as the sun rises and ends as the sun sets—-a journey of an everyday life.

Sometimes you would close your eyes and hope if you open them again, everything would disappear but as you slowly open your eyes there sits reality. I call this the illusion of a unique mind.

Everything produced in pixels and very high resolution.

Looking forward in the future and ignoring any obstacles that break the chains that we create.

There will come a time whereby all these pixels will turn into a glitch.

A maverick destined to rot like ashes on the ground.

Before that, our existence on earth plays a chapter in our books.

An expedition through time as we become enlightened.

some will exonerate others will be caged with their ignorance.

A paranormal that directs us to parasol God and Science.

We are eagles reaching for abstract moments .

Building clouds of dust and arising with historical significance.

No matter where we go we leave footprints of love, pain, death and vengeance. Many obstacles absorb our energy making us float and dry like leaves on Autumn. Our questions don’t always find answers and our answers don’t always harmonize with our questions but we follow the yellow brick road in aims to success and we become dictators of our books.

Sometimes just sitting down and being bored brings out beautiful words.  What do you guys think? Share your emotions, thoughts and hate. Thank you very much sassy Tacos

Namibian Art Vlogger on Youtube!

Issue 2 with love

How is Life?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very rainbow and Happy Friday! There is so much to talk about and yet I feel like everything so not important. Lately I have been changing the format of my blog and trying to find out what best fit on this blog. Yes, Runaway girl series is one of the most interesting posts that a lot of you unicorns like. So, with special love I really want to change the Runaway Girl series into graysbygrace because I really want to continue the magazine format. What do you think unicorns? I also want sassy Taco to be a thing right now because unicorns are everywhere so I really want a special name to identify all of us. Do you agree? Would you join the sassy Taco crew?

Why I have not been blogging?

A lot has been going on from moving to Namibia, new school, exams and University. I am really excited to say that I am Uni- student now..okay maybe not..but lets think positive now! I am still waiting for the results to come out because in Namibia what they do is publish grade 12 and 10 results in the newspaper. I may say all the studying and stress has ended but I mean even if you feel you have put your best there is still that sense behind saying you have not made it. I am nervous but I am positive! If you are reading this and have written your year 12 exams and waiting for your results. A certificate can not explain how extra-ordinary you are. Apart from exams, I have been waiting for my camera to bring the best content and a lot of you guys can see that I have been filming with my computer camera and results are not bad.. I am not really mad(Youtube). But yeah, I have got a camera and plan to bring all of you sassy Tacos the best content. Obviously from great content comes creativity which I have been stressing on in 2017 . Being inspired by shameless Maya and the artists that I have met across the social media platform ..  so, what I have decided to do is work on my short films which I have failed to do because of not having a camera but yeah, I am ready! That is why I decided to start a youtube channel… I mean, Film school was the last option( not even thought about because of how useless it is seen from one person perspective) for University ?.. So I needed another alternative so here we are. Going on, this Friday I am jotting and exploring ..most importantly drawing..drawing!

What are you guys planning on Friday? How was your week? what are planning next week? Who is your celebrity crush? Okay, who watched the new season of KKW? Oh gosh..something random..idk..idk okay…

Check out my Youtube Video and give advice I will appreciate it! oh, comment below if you have a youtube channel
