WIP: Weasley is Our King

A Golden Trio is never a trio with two… Ron being excruciatingly important to the team. I hate how unappreciated he is!  This guy deserves more attention, he was so brave, and such a great dynamic character.

So, this has been stuck in my head ever since our history teacher showed to us, as we are about to begin the French Revolution.

I have memorized the lyrics, and have been humming it all day. I love it anyways.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. -Thomas Jefferson

HEY GUY’S

Sorry I haven’t been on for a long time. I’m really busy, but I’m glad that you guys are sticking with me. I hope. 😉

THIS IS WHY I HAVEN’T BEEN UPLOADING

This GIF explains it all though. Click on that for the source.

I’ve had such amazing days though! I love school but you know. I need different amounts of free time. I’m still doing music, and that’s taken up a lot of time.

Okay, random question: Don’t you ever hate it when you are staring off into space, but the direction you are looking is right at some random person, and then they stare back at you without you realizing it (rude, lol) and when you finally do it’s the strangest awkward ever.

Sorry, I ramble sometimes.

Has anyone been watching Once Upon a Time! *dies* I’m loving it, I loved the Ursula episode, though I also kind of predicted what was going on, especially that big reveal with Emma, because after that sentimental part with Hook, I’m just like:

WHAT ARE THE WRITERS PLOTTING HERE? *stops to think*

*realizes plot twist before the reveal* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo………………………….!

Bye!

My Hero Monday: Stephanie Kwolek

So, I’m participating in the February My Hero Monday linkup! This was created by Chloe @ Free As A Girl With Wings, (click on the picture below) an awesome blogger and feminist, who created this linkup to acknowledge, celebrate, and learn about women from history, literature, movies an media! This month: Someone who invented something. Let’s begin!

mhm2

Name: Stephanie Kwolek

Date of Birth: July 21, 1923 (died July 18, 2014)

Schools: She attended Margaret Morrison Carnegie College, Carnegie Mellon University, Carnegie Institute of Technology (source, Google)

Where did I first hear about her?: I was reading a book about famous women inventors in the second grade, and her name came up. I thought that this woman was amazing, and what she made: Kevlar was simply fascinating, and it’s used in so many places!

What makes her one of my heroes? : Stephanie Kwolek had difficult times in her childhood, but she went on to become a scientist. Eventually, she discovered Kevlar, a super-strong plastic, 5 times stronger than steel,  that is made of polymers, and is used anywhere where strength is need under lot’s of weight. You can find Kevlar in armor, gloves, tires, shoes, ropes, race cars, and even some airplanes. There is no doubt that Kwolek made a huge contribution to science.

Quotes: “I don’t think there’s anything like saving someone’s life to bring you satisfaction and happiness.”

“I tell young people to reach for the stars. And I can’t think of a greater high than you could possibly get than by inventing something.”

 I hoped you liked this My Hero Monday! Check out all the other ones!

Howl’s Moving Castle: Theme Song

I’ve been obsessed with this song recently! I watched this on Saturday, and absolutely loved it! I haven’t seen many of Studio Ghibli’s films, so I’m getting a few from the library and am loving them!

I’m trying to play this on the piano, and I’M SO SAD I CAN’T PLAY SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL! 😦 I’ll get there. Someday.

Stay tuned for My Hero Monday next week!

Consquences of Rain

So, it rained here all Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And this morning.

I come home from school, and it’s nice and sunny.

And I see…

Literally hundreds of worms who could not save themselves from the wrath of the sun. Scattered and crisp through out the street. Fried up, left to the sun’s rays.

It was a worm massacre.

If only… I could have saved them.

Stupid worms. Don’t wander so far from the grass!

Listen!

The rain doesn’t last forever! Especially in a desert!

No rain pours for you!

No, young worms,

save yourselves,

from the wrath

of the coming sun.

(this has been a procrastination post in memory of the worms lives lost February 9 2015. )

Do you like worms? Do you like to save them, and stop their misery? Tell me in the comments below!

Jacques Cousteau

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

(I drew this in the fifth grade. I traced the outline and how I wanted to set this up. It was a cover page for a biography project that was really fun. 🙂 learn about Jacques Cousteau!) -Isa

Toph is blind

tophisblindedit

Toph: “There it is!”

Everyone else:*looks around*

Everyone else: *Glares at Toph, disapproving of her blind jokes*

Toph: “That’s what it will sound like when one of you SPOTS it.

Toph:*exaggeratedly waves hands in front of her eyes*

You can tell I got lazy around the end.

I feel this was great practice for comics. They are really hard and the composition structure is difficult to put together and it takes too long! You probably can’t read the comic… oh well.

This was fun! I’ve been wanting to draw this scene for a long time… and here we go!

(I can never draw Katara it’s so annoying!!!!)
