" I finally accomplished a painting after so many months; how it feels so good ~ !"

I think the title says it all : D

I am really glad, I have been wanting to paint, but I never did. And finally today, I made a painting. I am quite proud of it. Lately, I have been feeling really discouraged about my art and I thought that I was not good enough but I have been looking at my inspirations' art; and that has been motivating me to keep practicing. I hope that one day, I can be a really good drawer : )

I just hope this motivation will stay with me for a long time, I get discouraged easily so painting since a long time gives me such a warm feeling inside. Aaaahhhhhhhh ~ !

Perhaps one day, I can post my painting soon ^________^

I think that's all, Bye Bye !

First post of April!

"Wow, it has been 'ages' since I posted. It's almost a month!!"

Hmm. I don't know where to start..
I just remembered that I never posted when Zaynah had told me the other day.

All I can say I was really, really busy!! I have a lot of assignments and they all have their deadlines, so I couldn't even afford to write an entry. So now, its the long weekend and yes, I do have time. Yesterday, I organized my entire schedule in my Agenda, so now I can do a little everyday too meet the deadlines. I don't need to worry anymore : )

I think this long weekend will be great because I have no homework, except to do some reading and to rehearse my lines for an Elizabethan Presentation. Our group's topic is "Fashion and Food." At first I was supposed to be this Jester and I was really nervous about that because I am a really shy and quiet person, and acting like a Jester would require me to come out of my little "shell." But now anymore! I am now a musician. We are having a feast, so I am hired by the Lord to play music, so while they are eating I am going to play the piano/organ :D
And then, I have to talk about the upper class fashion, so I will need to do some research.

And for piano, I learned/ learning some songs:

Into Thin Air - Bernice Liu
Sakura Biyori - Mai Hoshimura
Gravity - Maaya Sakamoto
Forever Love - X Japan
Hikari - Utada Hikaru

These songs are really pretty, and I literally played these songs for an hour non stop; it was really fun :)
Plus, I am going to make sure I do A LOT of drawing this weekend, YAY ~ !

I think that's it so far. I finally posted ^_________^

March Break : )

mood: working working
music: NEWS - Hoshi wo Mezashite

"Hmm. I want to write an entry, but I don't know what to write.."

Well, it's March Break ~ !
I'm really glad, I needed some time to organize myself and to review over what all I learned. Not only that, I can actually draw. Slowly, I am making time for everything I want to do, it may be a the pace of a snail, but at least I am getting there..

Here are some of the tasks that I need to/want to finish by March Break :

-Geography Project
-Study for History Unit Test
-History Propaganda Poster
-English Analytical Paragraph
-Work on ISP and ISU
-Read 5 Chapters from "The Chrysalids"

-Go to Pacific Mall
-Draw at least 3 pictures ( this may seem quite a few, but its really hard to even do 1; hopefully I can do it ^ ^)
-Practice Piano and Violin
-Organize Closet
-and of course, catch up on my sleep. I really need to relax

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I feel kind of discouraged because I am not improving in my analytical paragraphs. When I write, it comes from inside, and it takes time. But I can't seem to do it anymore, I feel lost when I write. I don't think I can do it anymore. It is important because they are the foundation of everything else. *sighs
I want to do well in English, and I think improving is more important than getting such a high grade. When I was looking back at the paragraphs, I felt so bad..
I just hope the one I'll do in the March Break will turn out much better.

Also, after the March Break, there are going to be Archery try outs. I am really interested in that, I think I may try it out, though I have never done. But it has always been something I wanted to do.

I think that's all so far, bye bye  ~ !

..Happy Weekend

"The wonderful Snow! ~ I considered it a snow day today......"

...Wow, its been a while since I've updated.
I think I may have said it in my other posts: I am very busy~!

At least I finished my ISP and ISU first parts. Those took a lot of reading and research and they are the foundation of the final project, so now at least I am focused on where these projects are going to go :) This entire week was that much special. It was just the regular school week; but at least there were not any tests. It was just a bit stressful because I had to get the ISP and ISU done. But if feels like a big load has come off my back.
Also, since it was "Snow Day" for some people today, I have no homework for the whole weekend, because I asked this girl who went to school and she said not a lot of people came, and some teachers were absent. YAY ~ !

[I am going to draw lots this weekend = ^ _ ^ = ]

And, I need to clean my room and organize a lot of things : )
I hope it will be a good weekend ~ !

~ Bye Bye ~ !

"I tend to have a lot of nervous break downs....."

Today, we had to write a summative. It is an analytical paragraph where we had to read the story and find six quotations yesterday, and then today, we could only use our quotations to write our paragraph. I had improved on my previous analytical paragraphs, but I think for this one, I broke down. From the start, I was shaking and I got nervous; I had the ideas inside my head, but when I went to write it down, I was confused and it would not come out properly. I had terrible nervous break down, and now I am worried. : (
I like English, but these break downs are just terrible. It even happens on tests, and even piano.
I just hope all goes well..

Reading. . . !

"Starting now, I must use my time wisely because I have a lot of reading to do!"

For the past few weeks, I have been really, really, really, busy. I have to submit an ISP (Independant Study Project) for English and ISU for History analysis by March 2nd.
For History, I need to write a 7 page essay on whether I consider Romeo Dallaire a villain or hero. This essay is due somewhere in May, but we have to do a lot of planning now. I am reading a book he wrote that is about 531 pages, and I am at the 108th page. So far, I think I will be finished in time. I also need to have at least 7 resources for this topic.

For English, the ISU is due in June, and it is one of the final projects worth a lot of marks. You need to read a book related to a course you took this semester and I need to write a progress journal as I read through the book. I have found a book, but I need to get it approved.
And of course, I have piano and drawing. I am now practicing piano 2 hours every day instead of 45 minutes. I think I need to work harder because 45 minutes isn't enough. I must say that practicing for that long does start to hurt your wrists. As I play the exercises non stop for a minute, I can feel the burn up my arm and sometimes it does turn red, and then I need to stop for a while before I can continue. But my arms are getting used to it. As for drawing, I am not finding time at all, but whenever there is free time at any period at school, I draw pictures in my agenda. At least I have some practice there.
I just want to focus on finishing these books, then I can organize my time. I think I am doing well in my time management skills because I seem to be able to get everything done on time, YAY ~ !

Also, I think today is your friend, Melanie's birthday ( is that right Zaynah?). Today, Angela told me that it was her birthday one of these days; so if its today...

Happy 15th Birthday, Melanie~ ! : )

Happy Valentine's Day. . .!

Yay! It's snow day! The news had said that there was going to be a big storm today, but there was hardly any snow yesterday so I thought there would be school, but there wasn't :)
I really wanted a Snow Day, it's been quite a while since it happened. Last year, I had about 3, but this year, there was hardly any snow. I like snow; everything is white and it just looks nice!
I think I am just going to play piano and draw some pictures.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today was a pretty good day. On Monday, we have our first Digital Arts Project including everything we have learned so far. Digital Arts is a good subject, and am starting to enjoy it. Tomorrow, I need to install the Adobe Photoshop, so I can practice, and I think it's a good skill to have.
In geography, we are doing political and physical maps, and in History we are learning about the World War.
I really like History, I find it really interesting :)
In English, it was pretty funny. We had envelopes and there were about 12 words. And then, we had to make up a story in 15 minutes with our groups and present in to the class. We had words like: Jaime, Teresa, campfire, marshmellows, wheelchair, storm, current, and wave boarding. It was really funny because almost everyone made up a story of a surfer who got injured in a storm and ended up in a wheel chair and had to get his legs amputated. It was pretty funny. . .

I didn't get a lot of homework today, so I will have a relaxing weekend. Tomorrow I am going to the library, it's been quite a while since I went there. Lot's and lot's of books! Yay!

Also, I went to the Mall today with my cousin because I needed to clothes shopping, but I didn't like anything. So then I went to Hallmark and I bought my mom a Valentine's gift and she bought her sister a Valentine's card. It was fun.

I think that's all, Bye Bye !
~I really like English :)

. . .Could I have some help?

Feb. 8th, 2007 | 03:20 pm
mood: confused confused
music: An Cafe - Kizuna

"Yet again, I am really confused. This time I need to make quite a crucial decision, could I have some help?"

I am in this IB program which is much more challenging than an ordinary school curriculum . There is more homework,  advanced studies, and you need to display an array of skills like leadership, initiative, and  I guess you should like to study because there is a lot of work, and if you don't like it could be hard.
Anyways, it gets harder and harder and you have to a lot of grade 10 things in grade 9. It's just very advanced. However, I seem to be perplexed. The reason is because I really like to draw, but it is hard to focus on both art and studies. I could split my time for both, but then I would not be giving my best effort in school. The extra work is taking the time I would use for drawing or piano. There is nothing wrong with that, but I have been noticing that it's hard to draw, because now I am revolved around studies alone. I know I need time management, but I have tried and I don't like giving 20% to each area, I'd rather be the best at one thing.
In my opinion, IB is not hard, it's when you are absent it becomes hard. I enjoy studying very much, I like the extra work, but drawing is important too. At times I do think I should go to French Immersion, but then something in my head tells me I am dumb, and I feel like that. For some reason. I feel intelligent in IB, and if I go down a level, I don't feel smart and feel bad because I see all these people in IB and how smart they are, and when I look at myself, I feel sad.

I don't know what to do. I just wanted some peoples' opinions; perhaps it may guide me somewhere. Do any of you think IB is better?
Thank you

Bye Bye !
