Even when the rain is falling, there is still room to shine!

The title of this post is the caption I have provided to my painting (above). I didn’t originally intend for this painting to be as meaningful to me as it is now. But, it actually speaks more than I’d initially planned.

Me and Earl and The Dying Girl Book Review



This book follows a socially introvert male, Greg Gaines, and his best friend Earl. They spend their time making movies, based on those they have already seen. Everything is 'normal' and time passes by just how Greg likes it, until his mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel, who has been diagnosed with leukemia. As much as Greg does not agree with this, he must obey. And he does. But when Greg and Earl find out that Rachel cannot recover from this illness, they decide that making one of their movies for her would be a good idea, but is it really? Let's just say, it develops a turning point in each of their lives.

Curious on stage!



Guys, I am SO excited right now. I went to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time last night at the Grand Opera House. It's been a whole day since I've seen it and I still cannot quite explain just how good it was. (The picture shown to the right is the t-shirt I bought from the merch shop - I love it.)
