Why my Username has to do with Puffins

 Now, the title of this post may seem strange. But then again, when has it ever been ordinary? I actually can't think of a single instance of this anomaly of a normal title.
Moving on.
My username has to do with puffins for several reasons. First of all, a year or maybe a little more ago, my friends all got into this anime called Hetalia (where all of the countries are personified. They're literally people). My friends started assigning us all to the characters of this manga we were most like, and I ended up being Iceland, due to his relatively quiet personality. 
Here's a picture of him for you to see!

Right, so I ended up being Iceland (I was Japan also, but that's a story for another post. My official name was 'Icelapan.') and Iceland had a puffin. As you may know if you've read or heard of my aforementioned other blog, I traveled around Europe for a while, and then went to Central America. I decided to keep a blog to show my adventures and such, and it ended up being a big hit, with over two thousand pageviews. 
So, before I left for Europe, one of my good friends Bailey bought me a stuffed animal puffin for my early birthday present. I was elated, since my character was Iceland. I tied a red bow around the puffin's neck for the bowtie. I decided to bring that puffin to Europe and take pictures with him around all of those famous landmarks. 
So...I did. I took lots of pictures, and if you want to see some pictures of puffins (in front of famous things) just go to my other blog. The link's up there somewhere, and I'm too lazy to post it again.
My username has to do with puffins for these reasons, and I hope this cleared things up for you, in case you were confused (as people usually are). 
Also, Mr. Puffin came to school with me today.
Yup, here's the famous Mr. Puffin. In the flesh.
I have no idea how he got into my jacket pocket. He just...appears sometimes.
I've stopped questioning it.

'Nuff said

(Update: Oh wait, I also found this:

For all you beliebers out there.....
Stop reading my blog. I'm not sorry, I'm serious. 

Technology Vs Unicorns and a few other random thoughts!

First for the boring part. Don't worry, I'll get through this pretty quickly.
So, I've been thinking a lot lately. I know, big surprise. Haha. Very funny.
Right, about the thinking. I've been thinking about technology. I know that sounds strange, as many of us have technology in our every day lives. I'm sure that almost every single child at this school uses technology every day, in fact. If you're reading this blog right now, you're using technology.
Humans have been developing this world and its technology almost faster than we can keep track of. Remember back in 2010, when there was no iPhone 5c? Or even an iPhone 5?
Wait, what version of iPhone were we on beck then? Did we even have Kindle Fires?
Wow, this is kinda scary.
Look at that. Just look at it.
Okay, now that I'm done marveling about humans and their brains, let's talk about something else.
Something cooler. Something more profound. Something far more...sinister.

But wait. This isn't just ANY unicorn....

Ooh, it kinda looks like Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony. I bet I can make it an Alicorn Rainbow Dash! (For those of you non-fans out there, that means that it'll be a blue unicorn with wings.)

And that, my friends, is how to draw Rainbow Dash as an Alicorn.
Wait, it's missing something! A background!

There we go. :)

Turn in next time for....uh, something.

Some of my Actual (Non-Digital) Art (I don't know why, but I thought you'd be interested.)

So, I know that if you're a regular on this blog (yay for you!) then you know that I draw. A lot. As you know, I have told you before that my drawings on the computer are so much worse than my actual drawings. I'm gonna prove this to you, RIGHT NOW. Like, now. Just read a few more filler sentences. Okay, almost done. Here we go.

This is a picture I drew on Paintbrush. True, it has color, but it's not as detailed and precise. 

I'm sorry about the bad quality, but..yeah. I drew this. Same cat.

I had a Dream about my Blogyguard

I was in your dream.

I had a dream about my blog last night. The dude in the picture above was talking to me. "Let me be your blogyguard," He said in a really high voice. "It's like a bodyguard, but for your blog." I raised my eyebrows quizzically (still talking about the dream, you guys. Bear with me).  "Uh," I mumbled. "Uh, okay." The monster was, like, really big, perhaps eight feet tall. He was about the size of a grizzly bear.
After talking to the eggplant-colored monster dude in my dream, I walked around the rest of the boring grey space. It was really boring. I spied a small purple square in the distance, and I was psyched, because purple is my second favorite color.
As I walked towards the square, it grew larger and larger, until I was in a flat purple space instead of a flat grey space. I spotted a brown-ish gray-ish speck in the distance and walked towards it.
I came to this dude:
Bear in a Suit

and as you can imagine, I was even more puzzled than before. Before I could say anything to my dream-bear, though, he spoke in a strangely British accent.
"Are you really going to allow that unsophisticated hunk of fur be your blogyguard?" Obviously, this guy was more awesome than the aforementioned unsophisticated hunk of fur.  His accent sounded, like I said before, British, kinda like Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean but a deeper voice. By this time, I was seriously impressed, not to mention still pretty confused. After all, this bear in my dream was wearing a suit.


What goes on in my subconscious? I don't really want to know.
The bear in the suit bowed to me, grinning.  "Thanks very much, friend." He mumbled, then stood. "And by the way, call me Griz."
And it was about then that I woke up.
Strange, huh?
Yes. Yes it was.

My blogpost (With a guest star of Audrey)

Sara: My blog, my rules. Live with it, crybaby. I'm the main attraction here. Obviously, it's because of my attractive non-hipster-ness.

Audrey:  I have nothing more to say to you...peasant.
Sara (me): O NO U DIDNT GURL
Audrey:  Oh yes, I did :D

Everyone I know:  *Falls into riot and proceeds to take selfies with Sara, because she's so darn popular*

I'm a mad cow

I don't know why.
Just don't ask, okay?

Moo, indeed.



Wait, you're saying I absolutely must add ears or you'll hate me forever?

Wow, look. I didn't add ears. You're still mad at me? You don't like the picture? Huh, maybe you should talk to my buddy, Rufioh.
Hey, Rufioh. Talk to this person reading my blog.

No? There isn't?
I didn't think so.

Also, I drew my original rendition of Tinkerbull because I didn't add ears to the last cow and THIS ONE HAS EARS! Also, uH, oNLY SOME OF YOU, wILL GET THE REFERENCE,,,

Cats Vs. Dogs, Canines Vs. Felines: A scientific survey

The age-old question is about to be answered. I'll give pros and cons from each viewpoint. If you want, you can even vote for your favorite furry four-legged friend (alliteration!) in the comments. 
I'll base the winner off the comment votes.
May the odds be ever in your favor, friend! May the best mammal win!


  • Cats are very smart. 
  • They're independent. 
  • They don't have to be walked. (This could also be a con, I guess.)
  • Kittens are darned adorable.
  • Cats (some of them? I don't have a cat, I wouldn't know...) tend to be pretty cuddly. 
  • Claws.....'nuff said. 
  • Litter boxes.
  • Hairballs
  • I've heard from several cat-owner friends that cats can be arrogant and standoffish...I have no idea, but it seems like something they would do... 
  • Sheer adorableness of puppies
  • You can walk them!
  • No litter boxes!
  • They are super loyal. 
  • They will attack a burglar if they try to rob you!
  • They chew on stuff.
  • Drool.
  • Sometimes they bark annoyingly.

I'm sorry if you don't like those things, that's too bad. It took my forever to make this post, and I don't plan on adding to it.
Don't forget to vote!

Also, Canines and Felines can be tigers or wolves...remember?

Or, you know, a tiger wolf.

Wow, this is pretty cool.

What coffee does to me

I swear I'm not making this up.

This is a perfectly normal doodle of a monster I drew before drinking coffee.

And this is the one I drew afterwords.
The moral of the story: No matter WHAT I say or do while on Caffeine, no matter HOW rational I act, DO NOT BELIEVE ME. This is what happens when I have coffee.
