Some of my marker art.

I’ve been dying to try out alcohol markers as a medium pretty much the moment I discovered them but they were always so expensive. My first ones were prismacolors which were about $6-7 a piece and I only end up buying a few. I’ve been trying to incorporate them with my drawings but it’s kind of hard when you have only a few. And then I got an email from paigeeworld that copics went on sale. These precious markers rarely or even never go on sale so I literally spent all the money I’ve been saving up and bought like 40 something markers, a case, and some refills because I knew if I don’t go all out I’ll go back to paying $8 a pop. And yeah, ever since then I’ve been using them a lot lately because they’re super convenient and travel friendly.

Right now I am badly stuck and I’m angry and frustrated. But I also know that sometimes, one has to take a big step and that even though it might not happen right away, good things will happen eventually. And don’t forget how rewarding it feels when you’ve finally climbed that stupid step!

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!


It’s 6:03 am.

I see the sun rising and I haven’t slept yet. lol screw my sleeping habits 


{5am mornings and messy ponytails.}

A playlist. Because every time I fall asleep no matter how late; I end up always waking up at 5am gd jet lag . I guess this is my sleepy playlist. 

  1. I’m a Mess - Ed Sheeran
  2. Medicine - Daughter
  3. Candles - Daughter
  4. Long Way Down - Tom Odell
  5. Tenerife Sea - Ed Sheeran
  6. Atlantis - Shane Koyczan
  7. The Crickets Have Arthritis - Shane Koyczan
  8. Good Day - Shane Koyczan

There’s always this peace of mind falling asleep to spoken word haha. It’s not a song but it’s like so much more eloquent, it’s literally art with words hahaha. So if you haven’t listened to spoken word poetry, you absolutely should (Button Poetry’s channel is spot on <3).


“I was once told
I should love myself
Because
Boys love girls
Who love themselves.
I don’t want
To love myself
So that other people
Will love me.
I want to
Love myself
So that I don’t
Need them to.”

The first thing I ate when I got there.

Honestly, it was absolutely the most disgusting thing I ever tried. I took a bite and gagged. It was just so disgusting haha. It was partly my fault to because the menu was in french and like they had bunch of catergories of crepes. I didn’t understand the menu at all. When they served it, the waiter came to us with a small pan and it had a liquid on it. She lit the liquid on fire and poured it on our crepes. The liquid was alcohol or wine or idk. But it made the crepe taste so nauseating. 

But the presentation was pretty haha.


Made my own theme + deciding if I chose the right elective

I know my theme doesn’t look much and it still needs a little adding on to but I’m so proud of myself hahaha. Last summer I thought it was impossible to understand html and css (we never studied it in my previous computer classes). And a few months ago I finally started to understand it.You could learn anything nowadays on the internet, it’s amazing haha. I actually made 3 more themes before this, but I didn’t really like them very much. But I think I actually think I made something I like.

My high school is offering a java class as an elective but we’ve been told that freshman (grade 9 next year hehe) weren’t as prioritized as much to get in the class. I’m aware that it’s not the same as html/css but I was still thinking maybe I’ll pick up something along the way. Decided to go with drafting (along with art and spanish as my main electives) instead. Because when I was in 5th grade we had a small drafting course and I absolutely sucked at it but it was honestly one of my favorite courses I ever took. So having the opportunity to take it again for a semester seems exciting.


Most of my friends are in the Philippines currently.

Day 1 of Europe: Arc de Triomph

It was really stressful getting there because the machine where you buy train tickets was really confusing haha. But we got lucky because for our first day some really kind American family accidentally bought an extra two ‘all day’ tickets and sold it to us at a discount. So that was convenient. We got there at a very beautiful time of the day.
