Sound of Serenity
This is another creative writing assignment given to me during my English class. The project was a fifteen sentence portrait, in which we had to describe a place or person in - you guessed it - fifteen sentences. Each sentence had to meet certain requirements in terms of the devices used, syntax, etc.

Senior Year: September 5th
One of my most recent English assignments was to "explode" a moment. That is, to take one moment and use descriptive language to flesh it out. 

Anyways, I chose to capture a personal moment from earlier on in the school year.

To my ever-wonderful watchers: 

I hope to have some work in progress shots of a piece I'm chipping away at up soon. Due to school, work, and a boat load of personal issues, I haven't been very active as of late. Hopefully, once things stabilize, I can get back into the swing of things. 

In terms of long term projects, I'm not really certain if I'll continue working on Hail Fire or not. That's still something I need to decide on. Anyways, I hope you're all doing well!

Well, I'm actually hoping to get this printed at some point. Anyways, this is for my best friend's birthday. I just finished the line work, and will start coloring ASAP.

    Furiously texting and IMing at a rampant pace. That's what I did that evening - because I had to know. I had to know where I stood. The minutes crept on at an agonizingly slow rate as I kept messaging my good friend - the only stability I possibly possessed at the time. It wasn't anyone's fault but my own that I was isolated. My body, my mind, my emotions, my very core - locked away by my own choice... Hidden beneath a crumbling exterior. 
    After hours of waiting, I finally knew; I was not the one. In a sense, I felt it coming - that bitter cold truth. But I wasn't prepared to be ordinary.
    The compliments seemed to vanish. Rejection being the final blow to my protective shell, which had already been corroded by academic pressures and societal expectations. At best, I was a dying insect, my chitin armor being pierced by a starving scavenger, my vital innards - vulnerable and exposed. Still, unlike the insect, there wasn't actually anyone to end the pain. After all, I was alone, left to slip into a crippling darkness for weeks to come. 
    In the dark void of my mind, my vision was limited. My perception only open to a select few objects. And that's when the wishes began. 
    
Sometimes, I wish I wasn't an artist. The drawer housing my tools mocked me. The X-acto knife hidden within begged me to bleed. 
Sometimes, I wish I wasn't an athlete, as I get injuries and inflammation. The medicine cabinet was only steps away. A full bottle of ibuprofen waiting to wash into my system. 
Sometimes, I wish my family didn't have as many issues as it did. The leftover Vicodin, the Clonazepam - the slew of capsules would have made a fine cocktail. 
And sometimes, I wish it was just a bit colder so that the white blankets could lull me to sleep faster as I made my final snow angel.

    As anyone could probably tell, I wasn't very productive in those weeks. 
    All I did was survive. 
Sometimes, I Wish...
Not my best work, but I needed to channel out some emotions, so I thought I'd whip up something. 
I may end up fleshing this out into a more detailed narrative to include in A Junior Year Anthology

Hi, everyone! I'm Linnea, also known as Nike. I'm a student artist at my local high school who is currently aspiring to be some sort of medical professional (I haven't quite made up my mind as to what field... But I'm working on that.). Despite my tendencies to be a math and science type of gal, I have a love a various forms of art and use creative expression as an outlet.

Personally, my favorite medium to work with is pencil, mainly for its on-the-go versatility; although, I like charcoal as well, especially for capturing the darkest darks. For colored works, I tend to favor acrylic paints, mainly for their cost effectiveness, but if I have the chance to work with oils, I'll take it in a heartbeat. I'm working on building my digital art skills, which I also like to use for color, but do to my ever time consuming studies, I haven't been able to give it much practice.

Other notes about me. I'm a junior in high school who's taking too many AP courses for her own good. I'm a field hockey player, and love the sport as well as CrossFit. I'm a Star Wars fan, music junkie, and I'd happily answer your comments, questions, notes, etc.

Sorry this took so long to reply to, but yes, May 23 is my birthday. Thanks for the wishes. And I feel you about the tons of school work and such. Even with my classes over, I have plenty of summer work... And college application stuff. (Yay! NOT.)

Aw man, I know how you feel. Even with that all done in the past, work and just house/life related stuff tends to keep me exhausted throughout the summer. :dead: Hopefully you get more than a few breaks to relax. :)
