Welcome back to my little corner of the web! July is slowly coming to an end, a lot of things have been happening. I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked to but that’s okay.
I have gotten really busy with school/college, I have so many assignments and its kind of crazy. Right now I am working on a descriptive essay in English and a theatre in VCD. I am getting pretty good grades so that is a blessing 😀 This coming up week is actually my last week.
I also am experimenting with this really cool website called Scratch. Scratch is a fun social website that allows artists, animators and game creators to create things with code. I used to use the website before when I was younger, but now I started to use it again. I have been making animations and MAP parts with it. I really recommend it.
I am really excited that I will be less busy in August and I will be able to blog a lot more! I miss blogging and I cannot wait to start back up again.
I recently got a drawing tablet so I have made a few digital drawings.
I think my art is somewhat improving, I haven’t really settled with an art style yet, but I am experimenting! I may be doing commisions this fall and I am planning on doing requests to thank you all for being apart of my blogging journey! 😀
My favorite book I have read this month is Burning Brightly by Alexa Donne. Its an amazing novel inspired by Jane Eyre that’s set in SPACE! I loved it so much! I really recommend it if you’re looking for a good book to read and I will post a review on it soon!
I am really excited for August and the new things the month will bring! July was pretty busy but overall it was pretty good!
What is your favorite book? Do you like my art? Which drawing is your favorite?
Fun fact! It’s summer! As much as I love being able to stay up late and going to the beach, it gets quite hot where I live. This seems like the hottest summer ever in Ohio! Most days have been almost 90 degrees. I am someone who is veeeery sensitive to weather. I tend to overreact a lot… and when it’s hot I feel like I am melting into the ground XD.
Since I’m taking college classes (I made a post all about it here ) I haven’t been going outside too much but when I do IT SURE IS HOT. Now if you live in a place that stays mild all year long then that’s awesome! For Ohio, the weather seems just CRAZY all year, each season you don’t really know what to expect. Anyways, if you live somewhere where it gets super hot in summer, I have some tips for you how to survive!
Sometimes the best thing to do is stay indoors. Try rereading your favorite books, binge-watch youtube, find a new fandom to obsess over, write something, animate, draw, try something new! If you’re looking for a new show to watch, try Free Rein or The Legend of Voltron.
ALWAYS HAVE A WATERBOTTLE HANDY
I mean it! Having water at your side not only keeps you hydrated but it makes you feel happier and more energetic too!
Stray away from dark colored clothing! It really helps! Also, try to wear loser clothes, it lets air flow throughout your body easier!
Keep smiling and stay positive!
Having a positive attitude not only makes you feel better but it makes the others around you feel great too!
Although the summer heat can be irritable summer is still fun! I hope you all enjoyed this post 😀
Whats your favorite thing about summer? Is it hot where you live? Did you like today’s post? 😀

Oops; a series of mistakes
It was a few days before Christmas, I was walking around, taking photography until I heard a sound, a gunshot. I shivered, my hands shaking. I began to slowly walk closer to where the sound came from. It was getting darker, the sun was setting and I could see the faint glow of the Christmas lights, twinkling from the houses behind me. I was leaving my little town and entering the deep meadows.
All of a sudden I heard someone shout, “Did you just shoot down, and possibly kill, Santa?” I jerked my head to towards the voice, I felt like laughing. One, Santa doesn’t even exist and Two why would he be roaming around here?
“Sorry…?” I heard a voice mumble.
“I told you not to bring the laser gun! A glitch can always happen when the chemicals from earth mix with the rays inside of the gun!”
“And how would I possibly know that?!”
There was a sigh,”If you had taken the Earth safety test!”
I was dumbfounded, were they from another planet? I tiptoed closer to the voices and I could see the shadows of a boy and a girl. The girl was holding a laser gun and next to them lying on the grassy meadows was a rather plump man that I assumed was ‘Santa‘.
I lifted my camera and took a picture, but instead of capturing the creatures, a bright white light flashed in my eye, I had the camera facing the wrong way. “Oops” I whispered to myself. All of a sudden everything starting twisting and turning, and then it went black.
I really hadn’t meant to shoot down Santa, I didn’t even pull the trigger, somehow it just shot him. Chase was glaring down at me.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean too!”
“Is that your new catchphrase?” He asked, frowning.
I raised an eyebrow, unsure what he meant.
“UGH!” He crossed his arms and rolled his eyes,”C’mon, we need to get outta here.”
“But, we can’t just leave him here!” I pleaded, “We HAVE to help him.
“And go to jail? No one will believe that it was supposedly accidental”
“Wait.” I swallowed back a few tears, “You don’t believe me?”
He looked away and let out a soft sigh,”I-I do but…”
“But what?!” I shouted.
“Nova. There’s something I need to tell you…”
A light flashed from ahead of them and they looked down the hill, spotting a camera. My antenna buzzed and soon I drained the light from the moon.
“Whats Happening?!” I asked, worried.
“Run! As fast as you can!”
I wake up to the sharp pines of grass, wait. Why is the grass so tall?
I slowly get up and brush off the dirt and mud. I look up at my camera. WAIT. WHY IS MY CAMERA A MILLION TIMES BIGGER THAN ME! The sun begins to rise, I must have been knocked out for a pretty long time.
I look inside the camera lenses, I can literally fit inside of them. “WOW! how did this happen?” Even though being small is cool, I still have a life! My parents must be worried sick about me. How will I get big again?! I find a needle on the ground and I pick it up, using it as a sword. I’ve been through these meadows many times, but I’ve never been so close up to it. It’s a whole new perspective!
I look around in awe at how big all the plants are.
Maybe shrinking wasn’t so bad after all.
I wake up in a wet and cold cell, hearing sounds from a television nearby.
“Have you seen the headline of today’s newspaper? Christmas is back!” The female news reporter spoke,” Mr. Claus was reported to be found somewhere in the middle of Casper Meadows, in the middle of a Meadow” She laughed and continued to speak, I blocked out her voice and turned over to Chase,”W-where are we?” I coughed softly.
“I-I turned us in like you said. Mr. Claus is in the hospital recovering.” He replied.
I smiled at him, being in jail wasn’t my ideal situation, but It felt good to know that he was safe. I pulled off the hood of my sweatshirt, which managed to cover my antennae, it glowed and pulled the luminance from the room.
“Oh No! It’s happening again!” I cried. “Why is this happening?!”
“Nova, I’ve been meaning to tell you this,” He paused,”You have special powers…”
“What do you mean?!”
“And I-I’m a robot! and you’re draining my power away…”
“What?!” then all of a sudden my antennae glow is even stronger and it sucks away the light from and Chase. The only person that cared about me.
“CHASE! NO!” He closes his eyes and lets out his last synthetic breath softly whispering,”Goodbye, my Novabelle…” and the sun lost its brightness, and the whole universe went black, and so did my heart…
