Aaaaaaah. . .

Yes! I can finally say that I have successfully completed my exams, and that I know for sure that I've past everything! Phew!

Today was my final exam and I wrote Art Prac., of all the subjects... Part of the test was to see if we could draw pop art cartoons which funny enough are harder than you'd expect. There were several pictures we could draw a cartoon of, some of them more popular than others. There was a picture of a rusta, Heidi Klum, Marilyn Monroe and the Godfather. Random, I know.

I did my cartoon on Heidi Klum. Most people did, since she was the one you were more likely to finish in one and a half hours.
Now, at one point in the exam I look at my drawing and think "Hmm... Not that bad," but before I got the chance to admire my artwork any longer I caught a glimpse of the resident artist in my form's work. He's been going to a sort of art school for years and even though that short glimpse destroyed my hope of that amazing mark I was aspiring to, I can't deny what I saw. 
His art was as I can only describe as a budding Picasso or even an amateur Botticelli. The strokes were precise, the colours were complimentary and the picture was a masterpiece.

Obviously I couldn't get hold of the actual work to showcase, but I think a few of the resembling pieces of art I've mentioned might work.

Moody days of the daydreaming blogger...

Today was probably the most boring, sluggish ( no offense to slugs) day of my life.
Not to taint my Little Miss Sunshine rep, but I have to ask, don't you ever get those days where you just want to snap and shout at everyone that crosses your path? 
But even on the darkest day, it's best to find something to brighten up your mood. So for those who felt like me today, this is for you.
And if you're wondering what the following pictures have to do with being in a bad mood, I'll give you a hint: They are hilariously grumpy pictures of people, animal and dwarf alike.
Enjoy!

Um, hi. . .

Hi.

To be completely honest, I have no idea how to do this. This is my first time blogging and I thought this would be interesting. It is interesting, but forgive me if my penmanship, or typemanship in this case, is not completely brilliant. I don't exactly have a PHD in English Literature, yet. And since I'm aspiring to be the next Julie Powel, Stephanie Mayor and J.R.R. Tolkien, I might as well start somewhere.

So as Julie Powel once said (In some words, or other),
The Challenge: This blog The Goal:Future author and worldly dreamer. The Risk: My mentality and possibly my future as a free thinking South African blogger.
