The price of being Yourself

INSTAGRAM

”The price of being yourself is other peoples angst about being yourself”- Woopi Goldberg

My Reflection

Hey sassy Taco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and okay we are blogging early! Well, there are many reasons why I am posting today. One reason is the municipalty is planning to switch off the lights for conservation reasons idk..The other is reason is because I need to prepare for my tests and so I really want to post today.

Today’s topic is ”Being yourself or Be you, Be werid Yes!”

I always talk about this and I believe we live in a double standard world! People like you yet they can hate you. Humans can’t make up the mind and you as the person who is unique does not need to suffer. You just got to stand tall and walk like your the  next top model. ( Dear 25  year old me)

The fact that I have seen people’s mistake and they have advice me to be a better person I have learned really who I am. I have been exposed to many cultures and I am one lucky person to travel around. I learned different types of norms and even learned what people think about the continent Africa. Sometimes I feel people mistaken my accent and say I act ”white”  also the music I listen to but don’t get me mistaken. This is who I am I can’t change this and if you don’t like it, walk away.  It is easy as it sounds.  This is a very good example and as long as I have my morals, culture,background and my name I am fine. You know what? I hate having items that other people have. I love being asked..oh where did you get that? Just being like others is so boring. Imagine a world full of people who follow each other and do the same routine ( oh snap, that is a movie idea) . OH, my goodness that would be so boring! I believe if you plan to follow somebody, think about it and you will realize you are better of you.

YOUTUBE

The first time I began with thinking about starting a Youtube channel I was inspired. I wanted to do things that I knew I could not do because they looked fun.  That is why in some many occasions I stopped and deleted videos. I slowly realized that is not what I wanted to do but something else. As I go on now I love what I do and I hope I really get an awesome audience. This is me, I don’t speak a lot but have this mind full of crazy ideas! Yes, I have received comments such as you will not make it as a Youtuber because people don’t like this or that but passion is more important then what people think. That is one thing I learned through this adventure.. hey look at my Blog! In the beginning it was a portfolio which I did for a grade 10 project and then it grew to be a Blog which got an award at school for. Today, it is this wonderful area where I write what I love and I don’t care what people think because this is what I love writing about! RANDOM STUFF AND LOTS OF ART!!

Runaway Girl Series! BE Creative !! UNIVERSITY!!

Becreative

Fade in

[Rain dripping]

 

A rout of knights prepared their horses as the search for the Prince was announced.  Each send out to the different valleys, mountains and another to follow the footsteps of the thieves. House to house they searched. Sunrise to sunset through the gloomy mist. A day became a week, a week became a month and the search became a doubt.

RWGS

Yes, and Yes I have began with my YouTube channel and that is going well. As you may know, I hope so..I am studying Psychology, sociology, Chinese and English. As much as I love Art and hated high school keeping me away from it I still want to continue. To be specific I choose to study animation since after Vacay I fell in love. I feel that is the only update I have right now about my personal life but there are some interesting things that will come up . I choose to not reveal them cause successful people do not do that!!

 

Zine

 

Coomeoflooks is coming back and if you do not know what is that you are probably a new  sassy Taco. In my high school years I began this attempt of interviewing different people and what they wear. I do not remember actually why I started this but I did have a high interest in fashion so I guess I might as well as bring it back. This time I am turning the interview into zines! You know what? I have a confession and that is I always wanted to start a magazine. This is the beginning and I hope I get inspired as well as motivated to continue this!

Journal Entry

coming soon!!! ( will be on my Instagram soon!!)

New Year Resolution| Be creative

Be creativeFade In

 

EXT. LOOKING AT NORA-NIGHT

[ 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.

VOICE 1

He is missing?oh, the king!

VOICE 2

What king???

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.

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?

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.
