2: A Few Bits Of Background Before This Story Continues…

Hi!  It’s me again, back with another chapter.  I hoped you liked the last one.  :)

 

2 : a few bits of background before this story continues…

 

Nearing fall, the community was abundantly full of the products of the harvest. A year’s nonstop and incessant care and tending was paying off.  The village was basically beautiful hamlets over carefully tended fields surrounded by Jungle.  Overall, the feeling was wonderfully opulentSave the dreary air about the peoples of this perfect village. What was there to be afraid of or even sad about at a time like this? What could possibly be the matter at all?  Nobody talked about them…  The ravenous, somber, beasts that inhabited the darkest and most inscrutable parts of the myriad of trees stretching out from all sides of the majestic mountains. Those flitting beasts that you didn’t see. That you didn’t hear. That you only felt. At their most benign, they were ostentatious little creatures, who would pinch horrible little pinches, and made objects so displaced that it would be an eccentric waste of time and energy to retrieve them. They took away everything that was not needed. Everything.. Everyone, too. They used everything that was not put to use by they’re surroundings. One might be horrified by such an atrocity, but they were a part of life for the people of the Jungle.

lol,  I was feeling a little morbid when I wrote this.

By the way, the words in bold are spelling words that I’m sneaking into my posts.  :P

Post Impressonism

Post Impressionism was the period just after the impressionist era.  In paintings, colours were still bright, but the shapes were more focused and sometimes even outlined.

This painting is called Still Life With Skull. It was painted by Paul Cézanne. Cézanne took five years to paint it (1895 – 1900).  Paul bridged the gap between impressionism and post impressionism.  In the mid-1860’s, he met Camille Pissarro. Pissarro was a renowned impressionist painter. They became friends.  Many years later, a cold October in 1906, Paul Cezanne was working in the field. Suddenly, rain started to pour.  He worked for two more hours before deciding to go home. On the way, he collapsed. He was taken home by a passing driver.  Four days later, on the 22 of October 1906, he died of pneumonia.

This painting is called Irises. It was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889.  Near the end of Vincent Van Gogh’s life, he went crazy. It started with emotionaly unstable fits, then escalated when in one of his fits, on December 23, 1888 he pursued and threatened his friend Gauguin with a knife.  Later that day, back at his house, Vincent cut off a piece of his ear.  Afterward, Gauguin left swiftly for Paris. Out of fear for damage he could cause to himself and others, Van Gogh self-admitted himself to Saint-Paul asylum.

Post Impressionism has many stories behind the paintings.

Homeschooling Carnival Post 2 (You know what I mean) : The Return Of Steampunk!

Hi Guys!  About a year ago I posted this:

 

Homeschooling Carnival Post – Costume Design

September 15, 2011

For my post I will talk about one of my electives.  I am taking costume design, and since Halloween is coming up I’m making a Halloween Costume!  I am going to be a steampunk princess, ummmmmm no, what about a… no… hmmmm. Well let’s just say steampunk girl.  It’s going to look kinda like this:

Only with a skirt.  And a black vest instead of the corset.  Oh, and probably not high heels.  And with a hat and round glasses.  Ok, so it’s really going to look like this…

I’m going to add some things to complete the costume:  riding boots, another belt slung across my chest and another belt around my waist.  A wind up pocket watch  my mom has.   A black velvet choker with a cameo attached to it.  I’m also going to paint a nerf gun or water gun to look steampunk and wear it in a holster. I might wear a black skirt instead of this brown one.  I don’t know yet, I’m still designing.

Steampunk is sort of Victorian/Utilitarian.  It’s called steam punk because they didn’t have electricity in Victorian times so everything was powered by steam.  Steam punk is what the world would be like if everyone still dressed like it was Victorian times and all of our modern technology ran on steam.  That pretty much sums it up.

I’m going to decorate the hat and gloves with gears and ribbon and make gear earrings, too.  My Aunt and Uncle are helping me.  I’m going to put more pictures up as my costume gets closer and closer to finished.  Come back and see more of my Halloween costume and all my other posts!

Remember that?

Well, this year I’m doing the same thing. Only better.  :D

I took the costume from last year(I actually wore that Trick-Or-Treating!), then I added LOTS of new stuff. It just keeps getting more awesome. In other words, it looks WAY better. :)

Here’s the updated version :::

Story Writing – Main Character, Again!

I just thought I might clarify a few points for everyone.  Like In my first paragraph,

She is from New York and looks the opposite of the city”   I mean that instead of sharp features, Italy, Black hair,or something like that She has softer features and blonde hair. So she’s definitely not Italian.

Here’s an example of a typical New Yorker(I think):

Sharp Features, Defined jaw line, Ya know, New York.

Mom wants me to “include her opinions of herself, her age, her thoughts, her dreams, as well as what other people think of her.”

So here’s a basic summary.

She thinks of herself to be smart.  But sometimes she does things without thinking. As she is only 16 years old. Although I can’t include many thoughts of hers because I don’t want to give away any spoilers, I can include this because it’s not too spoilerey :  “I don’t know who I am anymore. I don’t understand. All these people, They must be stalking me.”

And she dreams to be the  top dog in the fashion industry, A designer by trade. Where she came from though people barely took notice of her, it was as if she were part of the background.  Here in Levenon though everyone likes her. And it’s kind of creeping her out…
