A Memoir: Killing the Pablo Picasso Inside

Killing the Pablo Picasso Inside
When I was young, I had apparently had aspirations to be an artist. Rain was leaking from the sky in a slight drizzle, and I had no appointments on my extremely (not) busy schedule as a five year old, so I decided to lug up the giant art box, or treasure chest as is more easily compared to and do something productive. My brother helped me set up the red, blue, and yellow Fischer Price easel while I tore giant pages out of a pad of paper meant just for projects like the one I was about to embark on. After I had slaved away creating seven or eight masterpieces, I began to think about what I should do with my artwork. Just like any normal five year old, I came up with the perfect plan. I drew and advertisement poster, slid into my rain jacket, and hauled all of my things (plus my brother) out to the driveway because I had decided to sell my pictures. They were on sale for 25 cents each, and as soon as I sold them all, I knew I was going to be rich. My brot…

A Memoir: What the Heck??

Heyyy guys,
So I wrote this little memoir for my Creative Writing class in school, and I just wanted to share it with you to hopefully pass on little bit of wisdom that I learned this past year. 
The prompt was to write about a moment of awesomeness in your life. Let's go :)

It's hard to pick just one moment of awesomeness from my life, but the one I feel compelled to write about is what I would consider bittersweet, both positive and negative. It started out completely positive for me and those who knew about it, but just recently, I learned something about it that shattered the proud feelings I had gotten from it. Let me explain.

This award is called the Woodie Flowers Award. I chose my school's head mentor, Randy. In the past, one of my friends and I had written a different essay about Randy, and he won mentor of the ye…

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Heyyyya friends! So I've seen this tag floating around on the blogosphere lately, and I decided to do it myself! Happy reading! 
A POPULAR BOOK YOU DIDN'T LIKE.  MY ANSWER: IF I STAY BY GAYLE FORMAN
I found this book terribly boring and was quite disappointed considering all of the hype it had. I couldn't relate to the main character, had trouble feeling any sense of sympathy for her, and frankly, I didn't care whether she decided to stay or go.


A POPULAR AUTHOR  YOU CAN'T SEEM TO GET INTO. MY ANSWER: JOHN GREEN
I hate his characters, his plots, the way his books are written, and basically everything about them. Granted, I haven't read all of his books but in my opinion, John Green novels are highly overrated and not worth the time or money.
