My paintings:

      Here is a side by side shot of two paintings that I recently did of Ashton Irwin and Luke Hemmings from 5 Seconds of Summer. Hope that you enjoy them. I had to put my twitter name on the paintings so that no one could steal them, because unfortunately people are thieves. If you do like them, feel free to share them :)
      Here is an additional picture of me in the process of painting Ashton today:

      I'll be painting Michael and Calum soon!

The BIG decision

     Well.. I believe that the decision I made was some sort of initiation into adulthood. Yes, I still have four months until 18 hits me like a cup of black coffee at 6 am (is that a good analogy because I don't drink coffee). Since I'm documenting many of my personal thoughts and opinions here I decided that I should share a large decision I recently made with you. Let me start at the beginning.

      When I was in sixth grade a very large and very well-known college from Ohio (I'll let you figure that out) came to my elementary school to tell us about an opportunity to receive a hefty scholarship. The candidates for this scholarship would be recommended by a teacher and then notified to fill out an application and write an essay about why they believed that they should receive the scholarship. Well I happened to be selected and awarded this scholarship opportunity, and it was a blessing.

      So in case you wanted to know the details of this scholarship, here you go: It is for minority/low-income families. You have to maintain a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) throughout your high school career. The scholarship pays for four years of college and the only thing that you have to pay for is your books. So yeah, pretty solid deal!

Book Photo Challenge: July

      Hello there, I wanted to try something new that I discovered on my Tumblr feed. It is a photo-a-day type challenge that is going around but it is about books. I think it's really cool because it showcases all of the little gems that take residence on your shelves. Feel free to join me! The July photo list for the challenge was created by Books & Cupcakes, so check out the link to see the complete list of book photos and check out her amazingly beautiful Tumblr blog. So I'm going to catch you up in different posts and it'll be in the same format as my Tumblr post but there may be more pictures or maybe a story :)
