Scholarship Tips

Since I will be entering university in the fall of this wonderful year, I have been applying for gazillions of scholarships. Two important things I learned: One, do them all in January (most of the deadlines are Jan. 31) and Two, have a good ACT/SAT score. It helps millions.

In my quest for applicable scholarships, I came across a few websites that were super helpful. And if you, unlike me, want to send your info (GPA, ACT/SAT scores, grades, etc.) to colleges and universities across the country, some of these websites are the perfect way to do it.

  1. CollegeXpress. It’s a great way to find scholarships and schools.
  2. Niche. It’s super easy to apply for these scholarships, and no essays are required.
  3. Fastweb. It’s a sort of universal website. You can find practically any scholarship on there, but sometimes it can be hard to navigate.
  4. Scholarships.com. I haven’t spent a lot of time on this one, but from what I’ve done, it’s pretty good. Continue reading “Scholarship Tips”

Life Update

Hello, everyone! I hardly post anything nowadays except for the Daily Pictures and a couple other articles. I thought it was about time I explained why.

First off, I’m graduating from high school in the spring! Although I’m technically in 11th grade, I think it’s time to move on to university. I have tested its waters in the fall of 2017 by taking two college courses along with my regular school. I loved them and I can’t wait to get back in. 🙂

Second, I have decided that I am going to become a doctor. I will get my MD and then hopefully I will move on to study a highly specialized form of medicine called Ayurveda. It’s an ancient Hindu naturalistic approach to healing.

Third, I have taken my ACT test. Whew!! I did about a month’s intensive in math (my weak point) and I got an awesome score!! Really happy about that.

This school year I am going to do a different program; mostly art, writing my book, math, Spanish, biology, P.E. and I will also get my learners permit to drive in March. So no more Ron Paul Curriculum, which means no more essays. However, I will still continue to post.  Continue reading “Life Update”

Doll DIY Hair Fix

It happens to all of us. The doll’s hair just tangles after too much playing and you can never get that factory shine back. And while this homemade fix doesn’t make it quite like new, it sure is better than what you had before!! 🙂

To start off with, you need a doll with messy, tangled hair. Like this one:

Yeah, it’s pretty awful. First thing to do is to take that bush and attack it with a brush. If you get the tangles out first, it’ll be a lot easier. Don’t worry about not having it perfect, though. You can take them out later if you can’t now.

Once it has become a relatively tangle-free fuzz-ball, head to the bathroom. Dunk the doll’s head in the sink and soak her hair. Then take a bottle of shampoo and wash it. Use a lot and make it a foaming mass. Literally.  Continue reading “Doll DIY Hair Fix”

Drawing

Yesterday I had extra time in the middle of my class so I doodled this:

I was inspired by Emmy. As a practiced eye can tell, it has 1900’s fenders. I showed it to my dad and he proclaimed it a “Hummer H-2”. Looking at it more closely, I guess I kinda did draw a Hummer, which I think is pretty cool. 🙂 Tell me what you think!
