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?

Test Tips

Well, a happy Monday blog day beautiful and  wonderful Unicorns! Its me graysbygrace your very own rainbow.

[Sun is smiling and she shines on her land]

Who knew that mother nature could make this day so beautiful to post something wonderful like this.

Aside: I am so excited I don’t know what to type exactly. How should I start this ..do I go on with the topic..do I introduce myself.

It’s fine really, don’t worry if thoughts are racing in your head. If you are here you NEED HELP! or you just found this post and decided to check it out with reasons.

I am going to start by saying I am Grays and yes I am the werido who sits around wondering about boys..nah..no..wait ..I mean life.

Aside: oh, no I messed up real bad.

Well, let’s get on..Here are a few tips for you guys.

[Hunger game theme song]

1. Your should must turn into a want

You know some of us just seem to not  like our subjects and the results are for us to hate our subject whereby the subject is just a rock we pass by everyday. You should find the value of the subject and it helps because once you have interest in the subject this encourages you to stay focus. You know what? By the time you are focus your should will turn into a want.

2. Set a timetable
I don’t trust this because there will always be obstacles that will stop you from doing your plans all get somewhere.

audience: why is this here if you don’t “believe in it”?

Well, good question. Some people will find it quite helpful I guess. But there is more..

Aside: what’s that word when you wait for the due date while you got  the task early.

Audience: Procrastination

Yes, always study before the date and if you want, early is perfect and that’s why this is here.

Audience: Good News!

3. Stay Focus!
Exams, Test, Quiz always remember to stay focus!! I know its going to be hard but here are tips to stay focus:
Stay Positive
Learn to say No even if it hurts
Check your marks once in a while

4. Find the place
So important. Some people prefer noise others perfer a quiet place ..well go for it! I found out by this term after reading “Crocodile burnings” by  Michael Williams I concentrate better at a quiet place.  that’s why when the teacher says study for your test tommrow in the classroom, I get frustrated to the point that my mind floods with hatful comments. Teachers, you can do better!  Allow your students to study somewhere else if you want them to pass your test.

Teacher: No..No..
Student: Like I have time with the boring TV. WiFi Yasss!!

5. Teenage Ninja
Drink water, exercise and take breaks between your study time. Its going to get frustrating and your going to end up saying I should study!

Audience 1: oki, I am going to try this.
Audience 2: I am hungry
Audience 3: I don’t like this.
Audience 4: boring

Well, it’s all about trying and finding out what you like. Remember stay positive and make it a want to study. That’s it from me see you around..if you want add some more study tips.

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.

Obsession

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).

Back to Back to school!

image

Hey unicorns its graysbygrace your very own rainbow. What! What? What,.. What.ghfffcggchgc! Its back to school kiddos ..what you pack? Give me your lunch boxx!! Hughshhggg .. Walking into that hall again that you have been in for 6 years.. Yikes..summer sadness..Winter sadness ..bullies.. Fake dolls and..loners … Why? So, you have heard my stress I moved back into my country and I was about to complete my year 12 but now it seems as if I have to start again grade 11. @###%&6%5&2&% I am done with life.time.universe.words. I am done. Going abroad is like changing your life starting from culture, accent, social life and routine. We simply move back and forth .. I did not sign up for this! @#%56##$% I don’t know what makes me angry: not being accepted or having to deal with starting again grade 12 ..watching your friends drift away to Collage\  University or being stuck in grade 12 %#@3@@54@&6&&&$&5 Okay, I wrote this too early hoping that this idea won’t drift away. So, “10” for yes I am going to school to finish this drama.
So day 2 .. nope, I ain’t going to school but waiting…some of you are writing your exams\ tests-with love break both legs. One thing for sure is that I am glad to leave the IB system because I was failing my subjects like crazy so cheers to a new start! Hope I get better grades and swim into university \ college.

Obsession: Oliver Rousteing! Just looked at Balmain its so well detailed!! 

Random sadness
I feel everybody should be given something at the end of the day so that they feel they have done something. Of course everywhere you walk, failure is going lead. So maybe a little prize!

What some back to school crisis you had so far? If not, what are some goals you have for the new semester?
