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: 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.

Why minorities hate cultural appropriation?

Grays World - Drawing 10-956757293

Why many Black women, Native Americans, Asian Americans and other minorities hate cultural appropriation and exactly why it is damaging?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and I am back! I am sorry for not posting lately because I was busy with my term one exam and I was in pressure but I am back. While on YouTube I was recommended a video with the similar title as my blog post.

Grays World - Drawing 12-1705848683

My understanding:

Cultural Appropriation involves the idea of a highly dominate culture taking a minority’s culture without understanding it. Going on,  some minorities are not recognize and given a bad image but people still use their culture for branding making these “people” highly recognized or embraced.  We are talking about decorations, jewelry, clothes and etc.

Why is it so important?

Imagine the future of young black individuals with their hairstyles especially Africans being judged vs a highly recognized brand being embraced using these hairstyles for their show. Uniquely, The generation coming  will stop embracing their own culture in addition to being original because of how their being criticized.  Forward, your child will walk into your house with Japanese clothes with little understanding of how it reflects towards the Japanese culture. Going on, learning about another persons culture is important because it allows you to understand more about it. Not only does it make you open minded but an individual with awareness.

How do I feel?

I feel more confident in myself because when somebody copies my culture it makes more proud though I don’t benefit from this ( a better image of the black culture)  but behind the mirror we all know the story. Any minority can agree that somehow we are unique we are an inspiration to fashion trends.  I am angry though because my culture is a profit to high dominate brand and ”then there is somebody who says bantu knots are not neat ”

I want to know your point of view, what do you think?

Runaway Girl: To Paris I fly

 

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and welcome to another year in March. Let me begin with “ah” “wow” okay it’s been a while since I posted on my playground and you readers out, I love you as much as I love food. I am back and I guess I will be here forever. Last time I blogged I was depressed with the change of time and began posting illustrations but I was going through a changing phase whereby I was trying to get my blog to hit one of my 2016  “New Years Resolution” goal but …

PUFFF!!!

You know how they say don’t quit and that dreams do come true?  well, I didn’t.. I kept going with this madness until I found an answer .. We are full of so many resources around us but it seems as if we ignore them. You know how you want to start a YouTube channel but you keep stopping yourself from doing so?  Well, don’t-WASTE-SO-MUCH-MONEY. Just do it! You have a phone with a camera and all you need is an editing software which is quite easy to get.

Unicorn Lover

Yeah, well I have decided to take that rough road and be laughed out and create an online magazine. If you ask me Sqlushee magazine is a cool name ..when I began I was really excited and tested this out by doing one of my project “feminism”. The idea was to go around ask people’s opinion and draft an entry but it seemed as if I was really annoying or fake. In total after sending about twenty messages to different profiles on Instagram, I got two reply’s which was good I mean I am starting it’s not like everyone will open a door to a stranger but it was good. What encourage me so much is that how I got to do illustrations was a journey. It took more than a boring art class to do so just and yes, I have been told I can’t draw so many times but that negative opinion lead  me to work hard and achieve my goal to be an underground visual artist. Well guess what?

If you are every feeling down and feel like pulling out well remember these words, “Sweat is the greatest gift in life !” I can’t reveal all of Sqlushee but I will try my best to give updates to all of you.This is the beginning of Runaway Girl a journey to be an influential editor!

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
