How I rediscovered art

I've been into art since I was just a little two year old. I would fingerpaint and as I got a bit older(around six-seven years old) I started painting actual paintings. I remember using oil pastels a lot and I would do acylics sometimes. My paintings were on large sheets of paper. I remember Cal(my brother), my dad, and me would sit down at the dinner table and paint or do oil pastels some evenings. I really enjoyed it. Cal used to do oil pastel drawings of sharks and fish and I liked doing vases. Then as we got older we both stopped doing art. Cal still does not do artwork but I rediscovered art.  I found some pcitures in my photo album of me painting and I thought I would share them. I like the one with  the paint all over me it's so cute.

I was looking thorugh dad's artist room a couple of months ago and I came upon my old artwork. I will have to say it was pretty good for being seven years old. Then I thought to myself, genetics are on my side here, dad is an artist, …

The downside of makeup

I know so many girls that will put on five pounds of makeup and spend forever getting ready. All that time adds up, all that wasted time. Now think, does it really matter that much? It's really unnecessary to put on a mask that does not even look like you. You're just pouring bad chemicals all over your skin when you do that. You are beautiful the way you are, don't change yourself drastically. If you want longer eyelashes go and put on a coat of mascara, but please try to keep it minimal. Makeup is meant to enhance your natural features not change your features completely. 
If you get in the habit of putting on a mask you might feel ugly without that mask. You won't even have the confidence to step out of your house without makeup because you feel like you are too ugly. All the commercials tell you that if you want to feel beautiful then you can put on a foundation and get flawless skin. But that's not the truth. Don't fall for it! It's not a way to impro…

Updated room tour

My room has changed extravagantly since my last room tour on my blog. I thought I would update everyone on my room. The picture above is an overview of my room, it's what you see when you first walk in. This is my dresser. On top of my dresser I have a vase of flowers, an oil pastel drawing of a koi fish, and a painting that I finished a week ago. I store basic stuff in the drawers of my dresser like lotion, and pj's.  This is a closeup of the vase. I picked the flowers a few days ago. The flowers were all in areas near my house. Here is the painting I finished a week ago. I painted this on a wooden board. I'm now displaying it on a mini easel.  I have a full length mirror between my dresser and my bookshelf. I found this mirror while coming home from a bike ride one day. It was just sitting near the trashcan waiting to get trashed. So I got the mirror and now it's in my room.  Then wallah, my bookshelf. At the top of my bookshelf I have my focal point, which is a gol…

Time flies by..

What are you doing with your life? Are you sitting inside and watching TV, sleeping all day, scrolling through the thousands of photos on Instagram? If you are doing those things you're really wasting your time, your life.  Make the most out of your life, after all you're only here for a limited time.
It seems like every time I look out of my window it's a new season.I looked out of my window and the leaves were just starting to get on the tree and now it's a luscious, green tree. It's crazy how fast time goes by. As time is flying by we should live to our full potential and make the most out of our time. Go out and do something. You don't have to never be in your house, I'm not saying that. Just try to go out once or twice a day. What I mean by going out I mean actually going somewhere after work or school.

I asked someone from my earth science class what they do on weekends and she said "I sit on my phone all day". Then I said "Doesn't…
