My Dream Job & My Proudest Moment

My ultimate dream job…

…would be an author/blogger/artist… etc. At the moment however, I’ve been practicing special effects makeup. I think it would be incredible to create creatures and make prosthetics for movies, painting halloween masks and all that. Eventually I would like to go to cinema makeup school for this, but in the mean time I’m just working on learning in my bedroom. I would also love to be a teacher someday. I have a lot of jobs that I would love doing!

My proudest moment.

I’m not sure I have one… odd, I know, but I enjoy small victories. Like when I was tutoring a student in spanish and the teacher told me their grade went up several letters. I was pretty proud of myself when I didn’t set my snake on fire. Making my first sale as a freelance artist was another good one. I guess all I can do for now if to keep striving to make my next victory my proudest moment… and then the next, and the next, and the next.

Thanks for tuning in for this brief glance into my dreams, until next time!

Alright, so, wow. Yesterday I forgot that this was a thing that I set out to do. I need to make a reminder on my phone. I’m going to pick myself up and put yesterday and today’s prompt into this one post, and then move on to continue with the challenge normally.

If you want to hear anything more about any of those, let me know in the comments! There are some fantastic stories waiting to be told.

Day 3 prompt: What’s your favorite quote?

There are so many great quotes out there, I couldn’t just pick one. When asked that question though, the quote that instantly pops into mind is “Life Goes On” because it’s a mantra I came up with a long time ago that has helped me get through emotionally really tough times.

That’s it for today! See ya tomorrow! I won’t forget this time!(;

Happy October!

Fall is here, schools are in session, and motivation is in the air! I’m using that fresh smell to start a 30 day blogging challenge! 

Day one: Blog name. 

Alright so this is QuirkyQ. My name is Quinn. Growing up, the teachers would play those games where you describe yourself with a word starting with the same letter as your first name. Naturally, quirky was the only thing I could think of. It was either that, quail, or quilt. When naming a blog, I was told that it has to be personal, catchy, brand-able, easy to spell… Etc. I know I achieved at least one of those. Still open to suggestions, but there it is. 
Until tomorrow!
