I haven't posted on my blog in months, and I feel guilty about it because it's here, and I feel like I should be posting something regularly then, right? Yeah, so I'm posting something right now. Can't say that from now on there will be posts regularly, it's something that I have to work on. It's just kind of hard to keep up with all these, sites. I have school, and I like to focus on youtube.
I just went to NY a couple weeks ago, it's always great to see my family. Found out my Dad had a brain tumor that could cause him to go blind. He just had the surgery to remove it, and it went fine, so I'm glad about that. It was freezing in NY, while in Florida it was around 70's and 80's. I didn't get a chance to see a lot of my family while I was there, the trip was so last minute, also my Great Grandfather is very sick and might not live much longer, which is a reason we went up there. Now I'm back in Florida back to school and all the same shit. Hopefully I get to go back up there soon. I took a plane there and back, this is my 2nd time taking a plane, I always feel nervous when E'm on a plane, it's kind of scary and a bit cool at the same time. I enjoy snack time on the plane lol.
Right now I have to think of something to do in front of a green screen for my project at school, it's for a motion graphics class. The video will be edited in After Effects. I have to go to class tomorrow morning, booo! I still haven't thought about what I'm doing for the green screen.
I'm about to make a salad for dinner and watch my shows, The Game on BET comes on tonight and The Bad Girls Club. I have this stupid cough that I hope goes away soon. I developed this weird cold kind of thing ever since I got back from NY. Well anyway I'm hungry, off to make my salad and my show is about to start.

I did a Tribute to TLC's Left Eye back in April. April 25th 2012 was the 10th year Anniversary of her death, so I decided to do a hair and makeup tutorial of her on my Youtube beauty channel and I had also planned to do a new drawing of her, which I haven't done yet. These are the pictures I took, me as Left Eye.
These are a few of the pictures I was inspired by.

I got to go home (to NY) finally after a year and half. I haven't been able to get up there in a while is because I didn't have anyway to go by myself, haven't had much money for it. The reason I was able to go now was because my Grandmother passed away, my Mom bought me a plane ticket. I really wanted to be around my family. I was really happy to finally be home and see all the familiar faces that I'm used to. Sometimes really sad occasions bring family together.
(My Nana, Mary E. Mikulski )
Mary E. Mikulski, 75, went to be with her Lord on April 1, 2012, surrounded by her loving family. She was predeceased by her parents Rev. Leslie and Barbara Mae Fields; sisters, Louise Amar, Nettie Woolfolk, Rhoda Fields and brothers Leslie Fields, Jr. and Gilbert Fields. She is survived by her four children Daniel Mikulski, Keira Williams, Adam Mikulski and Debra Keyser; eight grandchildren Chesarae Archer, Nathan Archer, David Mikulski, Daseana Barnett, Danel Mikulski, Kira Soliven, Deanna Wood, and Dakeisha Wood; seven great-grandchildren Jaron Archer, Janiya Archer, Nathan Archer III, Raven Archer, Jaden Branch, Kingston Branch, Julian Adams and Taliq Mikulski. She is also survived by her sisters Dorothea Cornwell, Lillie Colvin, Saundra Wilson, Margie Powell and brother Walter Fields; also many nieces, nephews and cousins. Mary was born, raised and graduated in Binghamton, NY and lived in Ithaca for the last few years. She was a retired employee of IBM. She was the Choir Director and member of her father's church, Our Free Will Baptist Church, for many years. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. The family would like to express their appreciation for the care and compassion shown to their mother by the staff at the Cayuga Ridge Extended Care. A special thank you to Doris Kusznir.
I took a plane for the first time ever in my life, It was the quickest way for me to get up to NY, and I was only going to be able to stay there for three days. Not only was it my first time, I was going by myself. I was scared to death, it ended up being ok, but I would still avoid flying as much as possible. If I could somehow know for a fact that the plane is not going to crash, then it would be all good.
I was happy to see my nephew, he is 3 already, he'll actually be 4 soon. He's getting so big, I would like to see him more often. I haven't seen my other nephews in a while either, I didn't get to see them while I was up there. One of the nights a bunch of the family went to Apple Bees for dinner, it was fun. I also had a lot of fun hanging out with my Cousins and Brother another night, we went out to a club. I wish things could be like that more often
I plan on going back up there in July, I should be able to stay a bit longer and visit with family that I haven't got to see in a long while. I can't wait!

I filmed a Sparkle Hair tutorial, which was also supposed to be for Black History Month. Sparkle is one of my favorite movies, it came out in the 1970's. That's where I got the idea for my Youtube name SeanaSparkle. As I was editing the video, I decided that I don't really like it, I think it can be done better, so... I think i'm going to try and re-do this video and upload it another time.
I did a drawing of Dorothy Dandridge, which I did for Black History Month. I kind of struggled with getting het mouth to look right, I kept going back and changing it. This is the best I can get it.
I made a video of me drawing it.
I filmed a Dorothy Dandridge inspired hair and makeup tutorial. It was meant to be for Black History Month, but I waited til the last minute and didn't finish on time. I filmed a few videos for Black History Month. Here are some pictures I took for Dorothy Dandridge video.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of her that I was inspired by.
