This weekend has provided me with a big peaceful rest from schoolwork. Yesterday, I went to the local Junior Miss program, which is a scholarship program designed to encourage today's young women to "be their best selves." The winners of local JM programs go on to compete at the state level, and then every year in Mobile, Alabama, 50 Junior Misses go on to the national level at America's Junior Miss to represent their state. I think the Junior Miss program is a great opportunity for young women to showcase their talents, meet new people with new perspectives, and overall change their lives for the better.After the past week, which was full of deadlines and exams falling one after another like dominoes, it was both relaxing and exciting at the same time to watch the Junior Miss program. It got my mind off of future stress, like that god-awful reading quiz coming up soon, and gave me the opportunity to converse with some amazing people involved in Junior Miss that I have not seen for a while. Congratulations to the loca Junior Miss of 2011!
Alas, it is Sunday now and tomorrow marks the first day of a brand new week as well as the month of March! It is mind-blowing to think that the third month of 2010 is already approaching our doorstep; it seems as though time is zooming by faster than ever now. Before I know it, it will be time for Prom (Friday, May 21!!), and then Seniors' Graduation, and then College. =D
Beginning tomorrow, March 1, 2010, I will be having my own private, personal NaNoWriMo! I am working on a not-so-little writing project that will be a gift for a friend of mine in the near future. I am so excited! I am making it a NaNoWriMo competition for myself so that I stay motivated throughout the project and can complete it in time. I have already started planning it out, and am eager to start working on it right away! You can check my current progress under the NaNoWriMo bar to your right. Inspiration, comments, and other encouragement is much appreciated! :) Unfortunately, I shall say no more about what this project entails, but I promise to update about the status of it throughout the month. Wish me luck!
I am also going to start up a blog ritual called, Question of the Day. It is sort of like a writing prompt, but it is more a prompt for the mind to ponder over. Questions will range from a variety of topics...feel free to answer them in your comments! =)
In addition, I hope to begin drawing a sketch of my idea of The Red Angel. I have already studied several anime pictures on DeviantArt to familiarize myself with the type of art I will be working with. It's going to be pretty difficult, as I have never been very good at drawing people, much less angels. When I am completely finished, I'll be scanning the drawing and making a blog banner out of it. If you have any suggestions, that would be great!
To close my blog entry for the day, I'd like to share with you some of my favorite pieces of anime that I found online:*
Have a great day! Goodbye, February...Hello, March!!
*These anime were found on Photobucket and DeviantArt.
