Art

Hey guys!

Here are my new drawings that I drew on using my Wacom drawing tablet. It's not really that good (to my
opinion). I still need more practice. The last drawing is my favorite and the first is my least favorite.




So what do you guys think? Tell me please. I could really use some criticism. Follow me on DeviantArt here. I also take pictures, you'll see them there. Follow me on tumblr here. And follow me on pinterest here.

Bye!

Halloween

Hey guys!

There are only 4 more days till halloween! YAY! :D I'm sooo excited. hehe Halloween's my favorite holiday.  Do you guys like Halloween? Do you guys celebrate it? If you do, what're you guys gonna dress as? And are you going trick or treating? Is your school going to celebrate it?

I'm going to dress as Red Riding Hood. I was going to be Snow White from Snow White and the Huntsman, but I couldn't get the costume. :( There weren't anything good here, so I just got a red and black cloak thing and a black dress. I'm just going to use the red side of the cloak. My dress isn't the best, but it was all I could find. I'm going to wear red lipstick and some blush. In my school, the students and some teachers are all dressing up. I'm not sure about this, but we might have a school dance. :)

After school, my friends and I are going trick or treating. Though plans can always change. I just hope it's a good day. :)

That's it for now! See you in a bit!

Of Mice And Men Review


Hey guys! So for English class I had to read Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, so here's my review for it.
Book Cover:
Review:
I really didn't enjoy this story. I found it boring in the beginning and the rest of the way through. But that's not the only reason that I didn't enjoy this. I found that it had a rotten ending. I hated it.
No matter how much I disliked the story, the characters were actually really interesting. And I understand the reason it's so hard on them since it took place during the great depression. So, the main characters names are Lennie and George.
Lennie is so sweet. I think that he has a real child-like innocence and I feel horrible for him. He was really improving in remembering what to do and such, but I felt that his control over his strength seemed to be slipping more and more. As his memory grew stronger, his basic control (I suppose... I'm not so sure what  to call it) decreased. He just doesn't understand! Lennie is so big and strong. No wonder everyone would want him on the ranch!
George... He's like the opposite of Lennie. He's smart and such. He's also a small, tiny person. Not the best person that you'd want as a worker on your ranch. After what happened too Lennie, George just basically gave up on everything! I feel like he just went like, "who cares anymore?! Lennie's gone it doesn't matter. The dream's over." He just slipped. He fell. And he had no one to lean on anymore.
It was great to have Lennie and George together, because they had a wonderful relationship. They helped each other in ways no one would think. Lennie leaned on George. So George was like his father/boss/mentor. George could lean on Lennie. Lennie was the reason they got the jobs (because of his strength) and it also stops him from being so lonely. Also, Lennie is just like his rock. He stops him from going around wasting all their money on cathouses and bars and such.
Yes John Steinbeck is a great writer and did a great job on this. However I just didn't enjoy the ending and the story. The characters were brilliant. And he was really true to the time and place and such. Also he used really simple words so it was easy to read. It's just that what happened didn't really please me. :/ That's why I'm giving this book a 2 not a 3. It's still a great story, it's just not my type.

Alright! Have a nice day! :)
