So. Over the July 4th weekend I decided to embark on a new craft-like project. I’d always thought it would be cool to paint a chapter of a book on a wall, but never actually followed through with the vision. Untillllll I decided to ask my mom if she trusted me enough to paint the wall in the stairwell leading to the basement and she said YES. I started drawing lines on July 4th and two weeks later, I had successfully painted the entire chapter of The Tale of the Three Brothers from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on the wall, word for word. I completely guessed as to whether or not it would all fit, and miraculously it fit perfectly, all 20-something pages. I completely ruined my paintbrush and went through a lot more paint than I expected to. All in all, I’d say it was a success.
"A preconceived notion, a movement of thought,
brings us to assume what in fact, is not.
First glance, first touch, impressions are made,
carried over time 'til the truth is mislaid.
We’re not always at fault, to think it all true,
misconceptions are misconceptions to correct me and you.
Like Pop Rocks, candy so deceivingly sweet, Add magic, it becomes a feisty, sparkly treat!
Oh, these little notions, what great things they hide!
The wonderful, quirky, tall person inside!
So it begins, an introduction to me,
I stand 5'2, but feel 6'3.
