So, I’ve disappeared off the face of the blogosphere, but I’m back. Thank you for your patience, my followers who may not pay any attention to this blog.

11 things about myself

1) I love origami. It is so beautiful, precise, and detailed it’s hard for me to resist. Origami is a beautiful art that is so HARD AND FRUSTRATING sometimes but calm and relaxing at others.

ORIGAMI!

2) I like making duct tape things. What can I say? I’m crafty.

3) I have a Lego watch.

4) I am overly hesitant about dresses. And skirts. They seem awfully inconvenient, but are so beautiful and fun to wear. I never like the necklines of my dresses, and never know how to wear them. (P.S. Any advice…?)

5) I recently fell in love with the show Avatar: The Last Airbender. IT’S AMAZING it’s killing me…

AvatarAang

 

Ah, Fangirling.

6) I swim competitively. I’ve been swimming for as long as I can remember, and I am now pretty good, if I don’t say so myself.

7) My favorite Disney movie is probably Mulan, Tarazan, or Brother Bear.

8) I can’t dance. I might learn. Might. Now you know. Be warned.

Dancing

9) My favorite unhealthy food is either chocolate or chips. Or ice cream. My favorite healthy food, (actually, it seems that everything is unhealthy in one way or another these days) is corn, oranges, or blueberries.

10) I’m running out of things to say. I’m a hard-worker, which is good because…

11) I’m not lucky (I really am not). So I work hard.

Okay, so now it’s time for my questions. Asked by Chloe!

1. What is your absolute favorite book ever and how many times have you read it?

It’s not my absolute favorite, but it’s close, and I’ve read it the most, it’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I’ve read it 4 times I think.

2. What is your music style?

Geez… I don’t know. I like pop, also classic, I also like almost Disney style. Love their songs.

3. Do you play an instrument? if so, what is it?

I play the viola, the violin, and the piano. I also sing, but not much.

4. How long have you had your blog?

Ah, let us go back to the beginning… I’ve had A Doodler’s Freedom for 6 months and 7 days. Ever since Christmas Eve of 2013. It’s a young blog. 🙂

5. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

Art. Not really any specific art, it can vary and wander. I like to show my own art, others, and just any art in life, including everyday tasks. I wrote a post about bravery being an art, and I like to talk about any art.

6. Bucket List?

-Go Skydiving (so cliche, I know)

-Watch all Disney movies

-Become an artist of a sort. Musician maybe even.

-Write a book

-Design and help build and furnish a house.

-Travel the world, visiting almost everywhere

-Write a song

-and more…

7. Preferred nail polish color?

I usually don’t paint my nails, so I only have this dark purple blue color. I do think my hands look nice in orange, though.

8. A song that represents your love life, a song that represents your social status, and a song that represents you on the inside?

Eh… What love life? I have nothing to worry about yet, I have not gotten there. Of course, I have had crushes, but nothing serious, not even serious crushes. So, I’d say Hakuna Matata.

HakunaMatata

My social status? I’m kind of neutral. I’m not popular, but not invisible either. (I think). I do find myself being a leader, and hard-worker. So, I’d say: Almost There from The Princess and the Frog. What can I say? I love Disney. But other than that? Probably Hall of Fame by The Script, about working hard, not giving up, doing your best.

And me on the inside? Hall of Fame, or Firework, maybe.

9. Your hero and a little about them?

Greg Mortenson is going to be my focus, though I also admire my family, Malala, Jobs, and many others.

If you have read Three Cups of Tea, you know Greg Mortenson. It’s a wonderful book, you should read it. Mortenson was a mountain climber, and he wanted to reach the top of the second tallest mountain in the world, known as K2, located in Pakistan and Baltistan. He wanted to do this in memory of his sister who had recently passed away. He couldn’t make it, and on his way down he got lost, and separated from his group. He found himself in a village, where he was greeted by many children, and he talked to the leader. He saw where the children learned. It wasn’t in a school. It was out in the cold air, and the children were writing in the mud.

From then on, Greg worked to make schools and help children in the Middle East go to school and college. Even in difficult times, he doesn’t stop.

10. Camp NaNoWriMo/NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program accounts? If so, what novel(s) are you writing? If not, would you consider joining?

I don’t have an account, no. But it sounds interesting, and I do have an idea for a book. I would consider it, but I don’t exactly know what it is.

11. Ebook or Real Book? Why?

GAH! This is hard. I like real books because they feel real, and it’s really nice just to hold and flip the page, but they take up so much room and can be annoying. I do love how they look, and that I can see all the books I’ve read at a glance. I have a NOOK, but not much is on there.

11 Questions for my Nominees!

1) Favorite Movie?

2) Favorite Quote?

3) Pancakes or Waffles?

4) A song that pretty much sums up yourself?

5) Bucket List?

6) How old is your blog?

7) Do you play an instrument?

8) Favorite Word?

9) If you were to make something that could make the world a better place, what would it be?

10) Favorite show?

11) Any advice for people, anywhere, doing anything?

So, my nominees are [drum-roll]:

Tolkienfan from Not all who wander are lost.

Danni E11a from Danni E11a

So, that concludes today’s post. I’m sorry I’ve disappeared, you know, I had other things to get on with. But thank you for your patience!

Bye!

Join Me in Drawing Random Things!

lightbulbDoodle

Even though I love to draw and doodle, there is only too much that is missing from my collection of doodles. It ranges from lions to elaborate patterns to hair to fish and superheroes. But I am missing several things and people, so I declare this project: Operation Doodle. I ask you to join me and tell your friends about this.

Operation Doodle, or maybe Exploration Doodle, I don’t know, will be a practice for any artists out there to explore the world and draw everything around you, a very difficult feat. We need to explore and discover the simplicity or difficulty in drawing things, and realize what we have been missing out on, and never be uninspired again! Who’s With Me?!!!

For those of you who don’t know where to start, here’s a list of things I haven’t drawn yet. (warning: It might get strange at some points…)

What to draw:

-A pillow

-Traffic Signs

-Someone talking on the phone

-Someone watching a movie

-Harry Potter as a girl

-You playing the violin

-Hakuna Matata (whatever comes to mind when you think of it)

-A lake

-A jungle

-Spaghetti

-A scooter

-A kid sad because his/her ice cream fell to the sidewalk

-A motorcycle

-Severus Snape with a pet duck

-Voldemort with a nose

-Disney princess at a rock concert

-The country you live in (from memory)

-A rocket

-Someone dancing Gangam Style

-Clarrisse la Rue from Percy Jackson

-A pinata

-The cover of your favorite book

-A sandwich

Ah, that’s about as much as I can think of right now. Actually, I was lying, I have a lot more, but I’ll leave some up to you guys. Please join me, and explore the possibilities in both real life and in your imagination! Tag it Doodle Exploration!

What have you not drawn yet? Tell me, and I’ll see if I can draw it too!

Elsa, again… WHY?

WHY IS LET IT GO… ALL THE SONGS FROM FROZEN SO ANNOYINGLY CATCHY?

Anyways, I was inspired to draw Elsa again, after hearing the Idina Menzel version of Let It Go on the radio. I am actually very happy that this version is on the radio, and not the Demi Lovato version, though both are equally as nice.

On a sudden stroke of inspiration and boredom, I drew Elsa at the end of the song, where she sings: The cold never bothered me anyway.

On lined paper. AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

I hope you like!
