Hellooooo! I keep practicing and It’s been a while since the last time I drew a child! I missed it because they are lovely, and I love to imagine how they act, how they react to something. So i imagined a little girl when I was travelling to Annecy festival… She directly comes from a fir that I saw and which had a strange shape ^^
Thanks to @lepagemegane for finding her cute name!! Her name is Iris, and it comes from a beautiful flower :)
what are your top 2 favorite namjoon songs he's in/wrote/sang?
my all time favorite is his fools cover with jjk….,,,,every time i hear it i get goosebumps n honestly,,,the emotion in his voice i really always wanna cry hearing it no matter how many times ive heard it :( and also what am i to you bc that song is so him and the performance has me shaking every time….,,,,
but honestly my favorite songs by him are all the old ones,, the 2014 and before onwards, the ones he wrote about society and youth and justice and things that can change the world……..that’s why his songs like ‘change’ are much more important and meaningful to me than any love songs him or any of the rest of them can ever perform. my favorite time for music for him and the group was the no more dream, adult child, n.o times,,,,i miss it n i love when he wrote music he wanted to change the world with and had deep meaning behind it !
A movie about Viola Davis because her life deserves to be known
“The only picture I have of my childhood is the picture of me in kindergarten, I have this expression on my face — it’s not a smile, it’s not a frown. I swear to you, that’s the girl who wakes up in the morning and who looks around her house and her life saying, ‘I cannot believe how God has blessed me.’ “
“I would jump in trash bins with maggots looking for food, and I would steal from the corner store because I was hungry, I never had any kids come to my house because my house was a condemned building, it was boarded up, it was infested with rats. I was one of those kids who were poor and knew it.”
“I was the kind of poor where I knew right away I had less than everyone around me. We had nothing, I cannot believe my life, I just can’t, I’m so blessed. I would jump in trash bins with maggots looking for food, and I would steal from the corner store because I was hungry, I never had any kids come to my house because my house was a condemned building, it was boarded up, it was infested with rats. I was one of those kids who were poor and knew it.”
“It became a motivation as opposed to something else — the thing about poverty is that it starts affecting your mind and your spirit because people don’t see you, I chose from a very young age that I didn’t want that for my life. And it very much has helped me appreciate and value the things that are in my life now because I never had it. A yard, a house, great plumbing, a full refrigerator, things that people take for granted, I don’t.”
“I first envisioned myself as an actor after I watched Cicely Tyson in The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman when I was a child.”
“It wasn’t until then that I had a visual manifestation of the target I wanted to hit, It also gave me hope for the future and a different life for myself, she helped me have a very specific drive of how I was going to crawl, walk, run from that environment.”
“I became an artist, and thank God I did, because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life,”
Just rural area things: running over a snake den with a lawnmower and cursing while you flee from copperheads
When I was a wee thing of about 10, we went to visit m Ohio family at their “campground” which was really more of a trailer park surrounding a reptile, bug and angry swan-infested sump, but baby Gallus thought this was AWESOME. Spent the whole trip catching frogs and turtles and a Wolf Spider the size of my palm which damn near gave Aunt Mickey a heart attack. Sorry.
However, I had grown up in the relatively venomous snake-free cradle of the CA coast, so I had no natural aversion to reptiles, much less knowledge of what the eastern ones looked like.
So you can see how I thought that the dark gray and kind of dusty-looking snake coiled up perfectly still outside Mrs. Bolghet’s trailer was an unusually realistic-looking lawn ornament, and I leaned down to get a better look at the detailing.
Cousin Jay Jay remembers watching me “Do A Fuckin’ Ninja Flip” to Back The Fuck Up as the Cottonmouth, in a perfectly reasonable response to having some freaky-ass mammal in it’s face, lunged at me. I remember thinking “huh, their mouths really are white’ as it rustled it’s ass back into the lake and I waited for my heart to start beating again.
Jay Jay, realizing that there were some gaps in my outdoor knowledge, spent the rest of the afternoon with me, marching about the woods and identifying various plants and bugs and SNAKES out of his Boy Scout handbook until he was reasonably satisfied that I wasn’t going to die in the woods, and cajoled the turtle-hunting secrets out of me.
(The secret is to look for the tiny triangle-shapes their noses make when they poke out of the water, and you have to spot them a good 30 feet off or they’ll see you first and run off. Then, you move extra slow. Ever see a heron standing on one leg as it takes literally 10 minutes to put the other foot down? like that. once you’re close enough, lower hands to the SIDE of the turtle, so you’re going to have a good grip it can’t kick out of, then grab it with your jedi-like reflexes and lift UP immediately.
Then you can carry the snapper back to the campsite and wake up your uncle by using the turtle to bite his beer can in half and make him scream like Fay Wray while you and your cousin howl like gibbons on nitrous oxide.
