It's OK, I'd be grumpy too if I didn't own a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster.

 Yesterday I was sitting in my room, on the rug, on the floor. And I was thinking, in my room, on the rug, on the floor.  And I had this thought (in my room, on the rug, on my floor) : I'd like to try sewing stuffed animals.

Right after I thought this thought I tried to think of things that I'd like to sew, after about five minutes of thinking (and a bit of Googleing) I decided to try sock monkeys.

I found a pattern and instructions online, Since I didn't have any suitable socks I had to wait until today to start. Almost as soon as we got home from town I got to work. It took me all afternoon, but I finished my monkey, and I must say, I'm rather pleased with my efforts....
I'm thinking Pink Monkey is going to get two friends right shortly, I bought a 3 pack of socks after all ;)


 I'm not sure what I'm going to name this Monkey, and suggestions?

  (Yeah we are in the bathroom, in my defense it has better lighting than my bedroom and it's dark outside! Also there is a drop of water on the mirror.)

Printer: *does nothing*

Printer: *Prints picture of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.*
Me:   .....
Printer: *Prints what I told it to print.*

Self portrait x9

I locked myself in my bedroom for about an hour and a half today. It was fun, I spent my time taking self portraits. I enjoy taking self portraits because I can take as long as I want, and change my mind as many times as I need to.
Today I decided to work completely in black and white (more grey and white I guess, thanks camera effects). 

I saw a picture like this on YouTube, I think it was someone's profile picture, and it was cropped WAY closer. I really love this picture, it was fun cause I NEVER wear a top knot; they kinda look like something is sitting on your head.... Some people can pull them off though :P

I borrowed Johanna's camera for this. Ahhh I love how her camera looks! Also it's bright red. Cool eh?

So guess what? I had three light sources for this photo. My big window (to the left), on camera flash (center) and my desk lamp with the bendy neck in my camera bag hanging on my door (to the right).
Yeah, it was an interesting set up ;)

With these next photos I wanted to just make different faces. And that's exactly what I did. It was weird 'cause the camera seemed REALLY close to my face...

Pretty Pictures

These are some of my recent pictures, though I haven't been putting a lot of energy into photography lately.
Too busy writing and getting emotionally attached to my math answers...

I like this picture because of the colour of the water, and the texture of the rocks.
Sam, walking around.

One Direction Grafiti 
This just makes me shake my head. What do you do when you love a popular British boy band? You write their name on an open air mosque older than your grandmother. Duh

Some of the coast and Gelibolu.

Drama Camp 2013 Video

Yeah, so I told some people that I was gonna make this awesome video of DC.....And then I totally forgot. Hehehehe
Soooo here it is.... three months later:

Road Trip! (To Ephesus!)

We finally made it to Ephesus! It was really cool trip ☺
I thought I'd put together some of my best/most interesting photos. I think there are some other pictures on my Flickr page.

Our first morning in Selçuk was market day; and it just so happened that the market started right in front of our hotel. It was a great opportunity to practice my street photography skills. 

A street in Selçuk 

 Dad thought this guy was funny;  he's soldering a handle onto a pot between his knees.
 A man and two ladies sit at a little table on the street to eat breakfast.
I was almost run over by the karate kid on the bike. 

A vendor
On the second day of our stay we took a tour. The tour included the house of Mother Mary, Ephesus, and the Temple of Artemus.
As it turns out I didn't take a picture of the actual house....

The House of Mother Mary

 Statue of  Mary on the road to her house. Our guide told us that the statue is neither old, nor gold; if it was gold, it wouldn't still be there ;)

 The Wishing Wall


 Ephesus is seriously the city of cats, there were cats here and there and everywhere! 

Look at all the people! This is Ephesus on a slow day. 

Our guide
I can't remember what building this is.

 The library

 Out side the gates there were people selling genuine fake watches with a straight face.

 Here is a very poor picture of the largest theater in the world.

 Outside the theater.
 (I didn't realize that I uploaded the crooked photo until now. Oops)

Really old graffiti

Quotes from out Tour Guide:

"If you want to get on the bus, it's the white one." (That's him with the Blue umbrella)

"It's only three hundred years old."

"[talking about Ephesus's prison] It has a great view but no windows."

The Train Museum in Selçuk

Having a little fun. 

 Sam climbing into a train.

 Look we were here!

Happy Birthday to me!

Today I turned 15!
It was a really nice birthday, made nicer by all the sweet emails and comments. Love you guys!

So in the morning I ate breakfast (did a math test) and opened presents.

And then Dad and I went into town to buy cake. While we were buying the cake we spotted some stuff that looked like sliced pound cake. We were curious so we bought some of that too; it was really pretty, it had squares of chocolate cake and vanilla cake in the middle, with coconut on the outside. We ate it with ice cream for lunch. nom nom nom nom nom

And then in the afternoon we made a music video for the Lego Ninjago theme song. It already has a good music video, but that's not the point. ;)
Hope you enjoy it, it was cool making it.

Like the fake microphone? Johanna playing her sword? Sam playing the keyboard on the ironing board?
 Yeah we're pretty awesome. ;P

 We ate cake after supper.
