Life, I’m Scared.

by evilnymphstuff

My first ‘serious’ vlog:

I hope it doesn’t make you cry, although if you did cry it means I did a great job :)

Anyway, this is basically some reflections on my life situation, where I’ve recently realised that I wanted to pursue art as a career while writing will remain my favourite hobby. And it’s also about my struggle to be accepted as an art student, since many do not agree with my decision, many don’t believe in me, many think that I’ll just end up in the streets instead of having a stable job.

But I don’t believe that. I believe in me. I know I can do this.

I know it’s so sudden and since I didn’t do Art & Design at school I have to do it privately and sit for its A-level next year, thus I’ll still be studying next year instead of going to university.

It’s a risk, I know, but I’m ready to take it. It’s all about follow my dreams and listening to my heart because only my heart knows what makes me happy.

And art does.

That’s the advice I want to give you: it’s okay to be scared, but you should go forward along your heart’s desires anyway.

I bet that, like me, most of you thought of the movie ‘Up’, am I not right? Hehe :)

Anyway, this isn’t what I’m contributing for the challenge, but this is:

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…

A Story In Real Life: Trapped In Storyland

Here’s this week’s Picture It & Write:

Aiden looked up at the white paper sky. He often wondered what lay behind this sheet of clouds. People passed by him. He knew that they all thought that he was crazy. But he knew that he was not.

Aspiring Young Writers: This is a Message for You.

by evilnymphstuff

Many teens have the secret dream of becoming a famous writer just like for example J.K. Rowling.

But most of them end up burying this dream deep into the dirt long before they reach adulthood and when they are past this age, becoming a writer was just like saying I wish to become a Hollywood celebrity or marry a Royal family. These of course can happen, but it happens only to 1 in a million of people.

But why do people assume that the 1 in a million can’t be YOU?

If we get discouraged and slowly build a lack of faith especially in teenage years, obviously, we won’t likely reach the dream… 100% determination and independent voice are what we need.

If we go back to our childhood, we notice that parents and relatives constantly asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. We mainly said things like ‘pop star’ but as years passed we began to think of the possibility of achieving this job and we thought, well ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ is more reasonable… and approved by the others.

My Dream Tattoo

by evilnymphstuff

Requested by my fellow readers, I’m going to show you my “dream” tattoo, just that it’s not really a dream, but reality: i.e. I’m REALLY going to get my right shoulder (classic place uh? but perfect one for the 1st time :)) tattoed!

Why get a tattoo?

Because of Dan Brown! Yep, that’s his fault :) He’s published The Last Symbol – his latest book – and in it the villain is a lover of tattoos and Dan Brown therefore describes tattooing as a genuine wonderful awesome art… as in fact it IS art! Not only something to show off or to scare or to intimidate (these 3 reasons are very bad ones – if these are the goals you want to reach in getting a tattoo… well you don’t deserve one).

So here’s my tattoo design:

celtic wicca design tattoo

I was inspired by Celtic patterns (google ‘em for more info ^^) as I’m very interested in the old religion (now called Wiccan religion), legends and myths… especially surrounding Ireland and Britain, i.e. like Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table :D Love to discover and read all of these.

The star is mainly called a pentacle – a very important symbol (for the good) in the old religion.

I hope the photos aren’t too dark and that my drawing (trials to imitate) is not that bad… Of course the tattoo designer will make it more perfect ;)

My Dream Dress

by evilnymphstuff

dream dress silver grey strapless with big cute bow

One day as I was googling – one of my frequent hobbies nowadays :P – I came upon THIS in google images! And I’ve saved it, swearing that I would make a designer sew this for me for my little person with the right measurements and all. You might think why I didn’t buy it online, well I’m not yet 18 and therefore don’t have a credit card, plus I lost the website of the dress, and finally because the measurements wouldn’t have been good for me as I’m rather short for my age, and I guess that Europeans and Asians’s body build are different.

Isn’t it beautiful? :)

It’s been my profile picture of BlogCatalog ever since! :) http://www.blogcatalog.com/user/DaphYin14
