I've only just now noticed - I've hit and passed 7,000 pageviews. That's both astonishing and remarkable, considering this past May I reached 6,000. I shall begin to post new things rather soon, I believe. Thank you all for supporting my artwork.
It's a little odd being back at school, since I spent 2 weeks in Tanzania. People continually pronounce the country's name wrong, ask a few questions, and then leave the matter be. I've made a presentation about my trip in Spanish, but I can never seem to describe it in all its glory. Actually, in Spanish, I floundered at the end of the presentation with something to close, so I said, "En realidad, yo no tengo las palabras decirte de que occurio en Tanzania, y de que yo vi. No hay palabras describirlo." (In reality, I don't have words to tell you of what happened in Tanzania, and of what I saw. There aren't words to describe it.) I speak some Spanili - Spanish/Swahili - by accident.
It's kind of funny, really. Right now, all the girls at school are worried about homecoming dresses. I've seen people worried about what they're going to EAT for the coming months. I've seen people who are worried about paying for surgery for their three year old children who fell in a fire. These petty worries of dresses and makeup are pretty pathetic, and yet, it's acceptable in the world we live in. Someday (if, of course, anyone every asks me to a dance) I'll be worrying about those kinds of things, too. But I'll never forget.
Go and do something that will change your life. Make yourself happier, make others happier, and make the world a better place.
