Last Week in Shiny, New Achievements; 5

I'm having a surreal day trying to grasp the fact that I just had my last lecture of my third year university... !!!!!!!!  I feel like laughing maniacally but that would freak my dog out.  Or probably just annoy her - hehe. So yes, I have 5 final exams to go, my last one on… Continue reading Last Week in Shiny, New Achievements; 5

Elsiveth Character Concept

Below is a character concept for a story I'd started thinking about last summer.  Her name is Elsiveth (or something along those lines) and she's gone through a lot of change over the different stories I'd started writing.  First she was an assassin, then she was a less assassin-y rogue, then she was an unknown… Continue reading Elsiveth Character Concept

Future Achievements for 2016

Before I get to the heart of this post, I wanted to say that I am officially changing the domain name of The Creative Kiv from: someawesomeartist.wordpress.com to thecreativekiv.wordpress.com. I probably should have done this when I actually changed the name itself, but it should be okay now.  I'll be changing all my social media… Continue reading Future Achievements for 2016

The Blacklist ART

To begin: I am working on a sort of resolutions post that will be posted within the week, and Happy New Year!  I hope everyone's holidays were spent to their liking and that some nice memories were made. To the title of this post, The Blacklist is the reason Thursday's are my favourite day.  The… Continue reading The Blacklist ART

Christmas has Changed

Sometimes I think to myself that Christmas is changing for the worse in my family.  It all started 5 years ago with the passing of my grandfather in November.  It was sudden, it was shocking, and it is my most fragile memory. All Christmas' (more specifically Christmas Eve's) up to 2010 were spent in my grandparent's… Continue reading Christmas has Changed

Conquering Finals: how to start studying

     I'll make this one a shorter post, since if you're reading this, you're probably in browsing the internet instead of actually studying. 😉  (Don't worry, I should be studying right now, too!) Basically: Pick up your notes and just start reading.      You might be thinking: "Ellie, just start reading?  That's impossible.… Continue reading Conquering Finals: how to start studying

Last Term* in Shiny, New Things; 4

Disclaimer: not always shiny, not always new. These past ...three months! have brought about a bunch of change. Firstly, even with my three month vacation into the world of third-year university, there are more of you following this blog!  It's a strange feeling knowing that 31 people have decided your blog is worth the follow, but I am… Continue reading Last Term* in Shiny, New Things; 4

Last Week in Shiny, New Things; 3

Not necessarily new, not necessarily shiny. Last weekend, I spent my time at camp reading.  And reading.  And reading some more.  I eventually finished the second day of the Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller Chronicle, and now I am eternally sad.  My brother said the third book won't be coming out in 2015, so I have a… Continue reading Last Week in Shiny, New Things; 3

love who you are

Love Who You Are; Page 6

The tomorrow's I'm currently headed into involve third and fourth year university, graduation, and either acceptance at medical school or applying to an art school.  Whichever "3-year plan" ends up working out, or whichever path I end up taking, be it something I've planned or not, I can already say I am excited for it.… Continue reading Love Who You Are; Page 6

Photography | Foggy Evening

A rainy day followed by a warm night can produce a beautiful image.  Nothing will ever capture the feeling of being there though: the humid heat, the water drops on the grass soaking my socks, the smell of petrichor, and the ever-changing wisps of steam coming off the road and out of the trees.  It… Continue reading Photography | Foggy Evening

love who you are

Love Who You Are; Page 5

This page I feel is more of an accepting your mistakes, rather than full-heartedly loving them.  It is possible to love the outcome of a certain mistake or misadventure, but for those… well, those other ones that we’d rather not talk about, at least we can accept them. “They’ve happened, they are in the past, and… Continue reading Love Who You Are; Page 5
