Siblings

When experiencing holiday's, vacations and long weekends one must never forget their siblings.  After all, siblings either ruin everything or inspire everything.  Every person has a different opinion on their siblings except adults because they go "back when I was a kid...".  Seriously everybody had different siblings and I will give you the low down on mine.  Ok, younger siblings are the suck ups and trouble makers.  They can surprise you but they do it rarely.  Older siblings have quite the opposite effect.  Maybe it has something to do with age or maturity?  I don't know.  Older siblings are reliable and still act like younger siblings but also encourage you to be a better you.  I have two siblings one is older, one is younger and then there is me.

Francesca doesn't know when to stop being a kid and start being a grown up.  She needs to learn how to take responsibility and own up to her mistakes.  We fight as often as the ocean has a new set of waves, if you don't speak metaphor the answer is a lot of times.  We never stop.  But maybe that's a girl thing?  My brother and I never used to fight like me and her do.  I guess she just gets on my nerves so much that I blog about her almost every week, oops.  But in the end we are always besties.  I know she always has my back and then she will be there when I need her.  And that does not mean that it is cool when I get frustrated with her and she acts like the older sister.  In her mind some times I am not the older sister.  But she's always my younger sister.  Always.

Zachary is the opposite of Francesca.  He is my giant.  He does know when to be a grown up but does not know when to be a kid.  He cannot enjoy the simple things but that could be because he is a high schooler.  We are growing close and yet apart.  The more I grow close to Zach the more I drift from Fran.  I feel like you can't be both.  You can't choose Francesca and then choose Zachary.  I bet I know when I need him for advice or a killer soundtrack, he'll always come through.

So that's my weekly dish.  Especially since last weekend there was a drama between the two and a referee was called in and it wasn't me.  Check out my "Wheely Art" link and comment on the awesome video and art.

OOOOO..TO PAINT AGAIN

Wednesday I am painting again for the first time since the long lost summer.  If you follow the facebook paintability page then you know my mother has complete control and this is my first session again.  I have some really cool ideas on music, paintings and colors.

1. Two separate canvases, one with coins on the top and one with coins on the bottom.  The one with coins on the bottom will give it really cool texture as well as it will personify the colors and make them more dramatic or youthful depending on my mood.  For this piece I am thinking of naming it "New Money" because we all love it when we get money for the first time that we have completely earned on our own. It's amazing to know that just finishing some simple chores or helping someone out can give you a bonus too.  I might listen to Payphone by Maroon 5  and/or We Are Never Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift.  But knowing me, either one will be equally awesome.  Yeah.

2. One big long canvas with soda can top thingies underneath.  They should give it a really authentic texture and it will be really interesting to see what the outcome looks like whether it is a disaster or a masterpiece.  The colors would be greens and yellows with blues and blacks and maybe white.  Since everyone is trying to take such a big role in helping our environment I thought my art would do the same thing.  The title would be "Eco-Friendly Art" but that title is a work in progress.  The music would be something old and new and Glee.  I might listen to Anything Goes/Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better by Glee.  And/or Part Of Me by Katy Perry because I have a vision that this is what the Earth would say, if it could talk, that it would fight back with everything and anything it had left to give.

Wednesday I am painting again and I am excited but nervous.  As you can see I have a lot of amazing ideas.  I am just nervous that I won't live up to the height of my first exhibition but hopefully I can show everyone that I am made of more and when pushed to the limit I, like Earth, push back.

Please email me if you have any cool ideas or want to test a theory using my art.  Please feel free to drop by this Wednesday at Intermediate School, Kelly Mac's Art classroom at 3:15-4:00 for we will make magic happen.  Yeah!

I HATE MONDAY'S

Monday's suck. Monday's suck like "I broke my leg skiing suck".  After a glorious or horrid week you have to the temptation of a two day break or the weekend.  I would keep going on with the week but thats just me.  From lying in on Saturday morning to staying up late Saturday night to the scary realization that tomorrow is school on Sunday.  Monday's really suck.

My weekend went something like this: I don't know if this accurate because I was half asleep the entire weekend yeah! Friday I only spent half of the day at school because I had a doctors appointment, which would be fine except for the fact that my mom picked me up so not fun.  I got good news, bad news and ice cream.  Which is how I got pretty happy on Friday.  I saw some old friends in the PICU at NUH giving them a generous painting for my gratitude for all that they have done for me.

Then Saturday hit.  You get that feeling that it was a dream until you wake up and realize that you don't have to wake up.  You could sleep in,  you could watch TV, you could be a bat and sleep during the day and wake up at night.  I woke up.  Sleeping in sounded boring, watching TV sounded intriguing and being a bat sounded exhausting.  So I watched TV, I did my homework, I ate ridiculously bad junk food.  I was awesome.  My sister was out all day, my brother was half a mystery, my dad was working and I had my mom all to myself.  We had some awesome fun.  I caught up on all the things that I have missed while being a busy person during the week.  I was free, until my sister came home.  Then she put a spell on my good mood and turned it into wicked anger.

Sunday came and went as quickly as a pop tart takes to eat.  I got a visit from a friend, a neighbor and she introduced me to a new TV series called "Awkward".  I highly recommend it.  It is something out of my comfort zone that I seem to really enjoy.  The bad thing about that is my sister likes it.  Whenever me and my sister like something it means war.  It always turns into a competition, who can watch it the fastest?  Luckily she forgot where I hid it.  Sorry Fran,  you are just going to have to wait till we can watch it together.  But last night was a very bad sleep because my sister found my families curse.  We are cursed to go to bed early.  I have been where she is asking the questions why?  But surprisingly I don't mind going to bed early anymore.  I just really hope my sister can see that, it's a good thing, not a bad thing.

Today was a bad day it is Monday after all.  And I don't care what anybody says, no one likes Monday's.  They are a curse and mine sucks.  Hopefully this week gets better after all I am so looking forward to Thursday because I get to annoy the hell of Pat seeing as its her birthday and all.  Which means lots of giggles and cake.  It's always a special day.  Last year I made it a memorable one hopefully I can top it.  Until next time, ta ta.
