Alright everyone…I need your help with my Q&A journal…and I need that help before I have to answer my question for tonight!
The journal has been going really well so far – I’m loving answering all the questions, really digging deep and contemplating how I’m feeling and what I’m thinking on any given day, at any given moment! One of my most favourite questions of recent days asked, “What makes you you?” I’ve given this sort of question a lot of thought, especially recently…I think it’s so hard to pin yourself down to one brief, sentence length description, but I’ve always liked the idea of coming up with a self-definition…and I think it’s so cool that I’m going to get to see exactly how this sentence changes and evolves throughout the next five years!
But today’s question has me really stumped…and this is where you, my Dear Readers, come in! I happened to notice today’s question last night, and let me tell you, I’m happy I did because I would’ve been frantically struggling to come up with an answer tonight if I didn’t. The question: “Which artistic movement defines you?” It gives some examples, like surrealism or impressionism or something, but as I have little to no experience with art and am a complete failure when it comes to drawing, painting and anything at all artistic, I really have no idea what works from those artistic movements even look like. (Sidenote: Yes, I went to a lot of art museums during my time in Paris this past summer…but let’s just say that I didn’t retain too much actual information, although I thought the pieces were lovely!) You don’t believe that I actually have less artistic skill than an infant? Okay, then take a look at the image below – it’s a picture of myself and my boyfriend that I drew…only a few months ago.
Yeah, pretty embarrassing right?! So basically, I need you all to help me out and make some suggestions! What artistic movement do you think most suits my personality? Or, alternatively, what artistic movement do you think suits your own personality and style, and why? I’m really interested in what you all have to say about this!
And, if you’re wondering, the answer I came up with to the question of what makes me ME was this: my unwavering belief in True Love and its ability to conquer all obstacles!
Thanks for all your help dear ones!
