Back to school


Yasss! Hey unicorns it’s graysbygrace your very own rainbow and wow! School begins..I am not excited nor am I happy but I really want to get through with school and live the LIFE! As you know doing grade 11 and 12 again can be a headache but its good cause I can improve. Guys I know some of you are already tired and some of are about to quit but it’s no time for that! Let me help you here are a few tips that can make the year pass in a snap *crackles*

#1 Goals
I hate them because they fail and sometimes they are just impossible to achieve but we can all get somewhere.

#2 Think Positive
“Oh, I have no chance in English!”- This is negative ..you need to really hold up your head and dream. They sometimes crush but we learn right?

#3 Put your hands in the game!
I would suggest if you want to improve than staying away from these bad influences is best.

#4 Time Management
I did this but I always had these obstacles that approached me but I still gave my best.

#5 Health bar!??
Hallo, its me! Drink water! Eat fruits and vegetables! Unicorn don’t forget to at least exercise and take breaks during your study time.

#6 Work Together
Sometimes your teacher doesn’t come out like the movies. You know what sister, set a group to study because you got dreams right?

#7 Have Fun!
You know what school is hard but we can all achieve. You know if you have one more year of High school, spend it well!  while you can!

Paper Town


Hey unicorns

Tagged , , , , , , , , , ,


Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and phew, what a month! I guess not being here and loosing an audience is fair. To tell you the truth I am committed it’s just that I got problems with the internet service provider. Okay, this story of “we are coming this Friday” makes me really excited to the point I wait and ..boom..face reality..Friday passes ..nothing. Five months is it fair? Do you guys think so? Even though actually saying we will come and not come is fair?  Maybe, it’s better if they call and say what’s the situation. #five months is way tooooooooooo long

Anyways ..
It’s a beautiful day.. While I was gone I did a lot of activities that I planned to share once the internet was installed but looks like that didn’t happen after all..oh well..but here are some:


These are a few sketches I did and I could reflect to say, “take the risk even if you know some people would look down at it. Anyways, it’s the only way you can actually improve.” You see I always said to myself drawing faces and shading is like recreating the end of the world.

“Well, Grays can you draw me”
“HUm, sorry mate I don’t think you will come out the same”

Well, now I have stopped and I looked at a few tutorials , took a pencil, paper and drew. Sometimes I would also use what I learned to draw some faces. # Its all about DOING IT


How I lost my campaign “Paper Generation”
It’s quite difficult to explain what happened but I lost it and I  plan to recreate it again..I feel it will be better #comic


The results were quite unique you see. Because  I learned to use the pencil and my hands. It isn’t something really new to me hence at my previous school I used to do art. So now, I just got stressed out of how the faces came out and decided to take the tip of holding the pencil in a “new way.”
Learning to draw lips was  also my second goal for the summer but I really enjoyed playing “makeup guru” with the eyes I drew.It would be nice to share on my “eye of the tiger”art page but due to limited data, I couldn’t share it. But soon that will be updated.

Why ?Grays ?Why?
My mind map..Theme:theater ..I knew from the time I left Beijing everything would change so I guess I wanted to continue something love : dance,film, acting and fashion fantasy illustrations. Ladies and Gentlemen I found me. Even though knowing that I will not continue this in university I still enjoy it #mini hobbies


Love my new mind map..waiting to fill it up.


My new theme: Theater bring on Wizard of Oz

Concerning my YouTube channel, a lot of problems have came up starting with the internet to technical problems- computer broke down and camera does not have a charger but I have fixed the camera problem ..will see soon. So, therefore banascotv will return but it’s gonna have to take short steps. Going on, a lot is coming on graysbygrace with the new FANTASY theme and also new short stories using Polyvore sets which I have had begin long time ago. #Time to achieve those New Year Resolutions!!!

Love graysbygrace

Thinking out loud 💌🏃

Hey unicorns it’s graysbygrace your very own rainbow. Grays believes it is a Monday today and a time for sharing. There is nothing like a sunny bright rainy afternoon with green tea next to you. Every time it would rain I would be sleepy, bored and lazy. Have any of you ever experienced this? There is really something about rain..Monday, a second day of the week that irritates everybody. It’s really a perfect day to blog because you can release  all the energy and breath at the . I’ve got some questions? How many of you count Sunday as the beginning of the week? How about Monday? Why? What’s one great thing about Monday? I haven’t got a clue with the last question only observed that when Friday is here everybody seems to get excited. But have you ever asked what’s one bad thing about Friday? Monday and Friday are two strange days and the other days seem to be neutral.


This week I am obsessed with my pen. The reason behind is because my handwriting fits best with this pen. I am not light when I write so yeah. I bought the pen at pep store at the price of N$24. They come two in a pack with different ink : blue or black. You can also find other wonderful items in Walton’s especially this pen. I heard it’s a great place to buy back to school items. I’ve haven’t gone shopping yet because I am still waiting to be placed into a school so fingers crossed unicorns.


If you haven’t noticed I’ve been using Instagram as a back up because it uses less data on my phone but I will be able to make sets soon as well as be back on Bananascotv (Youtube).

Namjing with style

Hey unicorns its graysbygrace your very own rainbow. I am really falling into a stone. If that’s possible? So, its been a while since I  blogged and set but raise a cup of wine I finally advance with this data situation. So I can actually call myself Namibian!! Unfortunately, my computer isn’t with me and my camera but that doesn’t stop me from sketching! So I’d advice you to check out graysbygrace on instagram. I haven’t really found any Namibian bloggers out there so, what a big world. But we are getting somewhere. Enough with that! I’ll be sharing a pet peeve:  “Angry cashers” in a store. I don’t know if that’s a thing but I have never walked into a store whereby I walked out with messed up thoughts! You can’t just place stress on a customer I mean I have rights as you do and a life so I  am guessing I have problems too. Rude is a crime!!

Awkward Silence..
What do u think of me as superman? Huh Superman v.s. Burney. Is that even illegal? Burney is scary! Telitubies are scary unicorns but I don’t know why kids find them so amusing. Why? Somebody tell me why??
– inspired by Martyna.

Share some of your pet peeves!!

New Years Resolutions 🎭🎇🎆

Hey unicorns it’s graysbygrace your very own rainbow.🌈
2015 has came to an end and 2016 has come to be the New Year. In 2015 we have failed, gained, and overcome challenges.
Graysbygrace has grew slowly and stands firmly like an empire. To tell you the truth, last time I did my New Years Resolution it was something new. I even googled it in four languages just to understand what it was? .. That’s extreme, I didn’t but it felt like it. This year, I shamelessly shared my blog and learned I need a new list to challenge myself.

So Unicorns, let’s go on with it 🎭

1. Get involved in collaborations
2. Work out a schedule for my post
3. Start growing “Come of looks”
4. Be involved in my environment/ events
5. Explore📷
6. Take risks even though I know there going fail.
7. Build more confidence in myself
8. Work outside my blog to learn new ways to build my blog.
9. Grow my theatrical side or fantasy
10. Bananasctv “how can I?”🎥


believe that you can do it even if u know your going you fail

Midnight Princess


As silence spoke she stood firmly and gave her breath. In a sharp snap she stood on her toes and moved like an ocean of love. The salty liquid run on her skin till it reached her finger tips and where it dripped causing an explosion of hate, revenge and love. Music echoing from street to street but nobody cared cause they were asleep. Slowly the half sun fell and the big moon rose and she said her last words.

“I shall not be afraid for I have fell and may be forgiven for I am cursed.”

Inspirations and Outcomes


I find that this question is quite so uncomfortable to answer cause I don’t have just one answer, I have a lot more. I look around here and here so there is a lot of things that can inspire me to do things. I am a multi-tasked person and I pretty much enjoy it cause it keeps away from negative stuff. Blogging started out as a love for fashion and a love for shopping. I noticed it was something that I wanted to pursue but than there was that theatrical side of me that said no, I WANT YOU. Looking at my posts on Facebook so far I have listed all these crazy Universities that I wanted to go to but became so unsuccessful cause of the question of : What would I do with a theater degree? Overall from all these in site information thats how I got inspired to do what I love. From dancing – bogging – Now youtube.
