Happy New Year 2014! New Year’s Resolutions and More…

by evilnymphstuff

Last year I mentioned that I wasn’t really into New Year’s resolutions, but I still gave myself three little goals to achieve, and today, I’m going to review it and see what happened.

The first one was to focus on writing. Then I elaborated: And I sincerely hope that in the end of 2013, I am left with at least one polished and completed novel, ready to be published.

That didn’t come true. Well except that instead of ending up with a novel, I ended up with a short script, which I am now writing into a novella.

That isn’t disappointing or surprising though, because I know that this year was a year full of school work, being my last year in secondary school.

And that’s how my second resolution had been to work hard at school, focus on my studies.

Which I hopefully did? I don’t know I am still waiting for the results!

Then the third and final goal I had set myself was to find where I stand. I quote: I want to finally find my whole identity. I want to know – no, to be sure of – where I’m going. Who am I? What’s my mission? 

Did I succeed this one? I don’t know. Maybe. Or maybe I still have yet to learn about myself. In any case, during the year there were a lot of confusion and ups and downs about my identity and plans for the future. Fortunately, today, I know exactly where I am going and I know myself better than a year ago.

I know what I have to do ;)

Art Is Changing My Life

by evilnymphstuff

Some of you might remember that when I started this blog, I said that I had a new hobby every year.

Only writing remains constant throughout my life’s journey, since it’s more than a hobby, it’s a passion, well, it hasn’t always been constant but it always came back – I always came back to it.

French fanfiction in 2008, vidding in 2010, makeup and blogging in 2011, novelist-huge-breakthrough-plans in 2012… For some I… well I didn’t give up but I kind of was out of time to do all so I had to eliminate, while for others, like blogging especially, remained and will remain in my life I believe.

And in 2013…

Art.

Of course, everything I stated above is art, but what I mean is that this year I’m embracing the very basic stereotype form of art, which is the visual one, painting and drawing. The one art I drowned in when I could not even read and write, which made me use up all the paint pots and try out all the cheap painting brushes we had in our family’s shop, and which made me wonder about beautiful sunsets painted on canvas…

How I Control Anger

by evilnymphstuff

Anger, although being one of the seven deadly sins, is a very common feeling, felt and expressed by everyone. Usually, anger is impulsive; it is a release… of shouts and cries until one’s throat is dry and the face’s gone all red and sweaty.

But then, sometimes anger makes one do or say things that one may regret afterwards.

Creative Food!

by evilnymphstuff

Hey everyone, I’m back! :)

Today I’m going to share with you something I do a lot when I stay at a hotel: I play with food! Well, not that kind of playing, but I like to just be creative with the presentation of my food in my plate. I usually do this mainly for desserts and breakfast. And desserts especially when there’s a chocolate fountain! (which we had this year!)

Therefore, simply scroll down and enjoy:

So This Is Christmas!

by evilnymphstuff

fallen angel

So this is Christmas…

But what have you done?

That night I saw an angel fall from the sky. Her golden hair gradually lost its shine as she reached the ground. Her beautiful white gown was stained with dirt. I could not see her eyes or her face, but I knew that she was the loveliest thing that could ever exist on Earth. She looked so fragile and innocent.

This Is Halloween! [or The Happy Nightmare Before Christmas]

by evilnymphstuff

Although here in Mauritius we don’t officially celebrate Halloween, or Samhain’s Eve, whatever you call it, many of us, especially teenagers, always find a way to make this 31 October a special day, even despite having exams on the next day.

Yes, many of us were just stuck at home with revision work… but fortunately? I had tuition in the afternoon. This is when my friends and I decided to wear orange and black and cry out ‘TRICK OR TREAT’ when the teacher would come into class.

Doesn’t mean that we got sweets in the end.

But it was just so fun.

Closeness & Creativity [WPCs]

by evilnymphstuff

In this post I’m catching up on the Weekly Photo Challenge, which I missed last week because of some lack of photographic inspiration and emotional turmoils… Anyway, I’m fine today :) So here we go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

As you have seen in my previous post, I’ve been drawing lately, and because I don’t have any photos inspired by ‘close’ – or if I do I don’t want to post them I guess because of some kind of reason my conscience has… – I’m going to show you my latest and completed drawing:

How can this relate to ‘close’?

Big Girls Don’t Cry…

by evilnymphstuff

Crying is showing that you are weak.

These words rang continuously in my head as I watched her go. I remember that I had come to this cold conclusion when I was just a little child who had sought for affection at the wrong time. Because crying didn’t lead me anywhere. No one paid attention anyway.
But as I stare at her back… walking away from me…

I felt like we were both tied to a string and the more she went away, the more the string pulled at my heart and tore my skin. It hurt.
And it hurt my eyes too.

For so many years, nothing has made me cried as much. Tears rolled down my cheeks like a waterfall. I made no sound but I shook all over. I knew that I was going to see her again. Yet I couldn’t stop crying.

And my own words of the past hung in the air:
“It’s time to be a big girl now. And big girls don’t cry.”

Sites of the Month: May 2012 [+ Kreativ Blogger Award!]

by evilnymphstuff

Apart from my birthday, what can I possibly share with you for the month of May…?

First of all let’s say that I was very much concerned about my future as a student – i.e. I was browsing through various universities’ websites, and I’ve found many to which I might apply – all around the world! And then I thought about my career and dreams and I have two of them: creative writing (ha! of course! who wouldn’t have guessed that xD) and performing arts – which is plainly acting.

An Evil Nymph Goes Back to School

by evilnymphstuff

The title sounds so childish, don’t you think so? Anyway.

My 6th year at secondary school will start on Thursday! Excited? Thrilled? uh… well I guess I got used to it. So bye bye holidays and welcome uniforms and homework… My schedule will be tighter too. :P

But to spice up those long days at school and tuition, I crafted a pencil case (which I always do since I learnt how to make one… thanks to school lol) like this one:
