So I finally got round to filming myself spinning some pens. It's just a simple pen spin I devised late last year, although I'm not sure it's entirely original. Had to hold my phone in my mouth to film this xD.

First with one hand:

And now with both hands:

The only reason I am this good is because I just have this need to do something with my hands and pens are the one of those things which are really easy to get my hands on. Also you can practise pen spinning at school without the teacher getting mad at you unlike with cardistry.

AHHHH MY POOR FRIENDS ARE PROBABLY GETTING SO DIZZY :S

Until you flick it across physics lecture theaters, hitting people and losing your pen!

It's a price I am willing to pay!

I play piano and clarinet, though I don't have any videos of that :v

I mainly do art, though - I paint, draw, sculpt, and do digital. 

I've recently gotten into painting miniatures,  but I haven't yet figured out how to photograph them without them looking godawful.

Here's some stuff that went into my portfolio - I know, I need to work on my camera quality. :Y

Oh, maybe it's not available on mobile? You can manually do it by typing [ spoiler ]at the beginning and [ /spoiler ] at the end (don't forget to remove the spaces)

I mostly do art, I sculpt and draw but mostly sketching

Currently I'm drawing manga characters, but I've done some real ones, too.

These two are my most recent ones (the "real" one is from Art class though)

I knit and draw, though I knit way more than draw these days. I drew my avatar and the picture in my profile banner (you can only see a little slice of it though).

I can crochet. I'm currently crocheting a onesie with the asexual flag colors. The picture shows it up against a onesie I bought for size comparison. I'm planning to have a child in the next few years and will have my kid wear the stuff I crocheted.

I play the trumpet and sing opera, I can do a lot of push-ups, and I got an 8192 tile in 2048 once. 😬

I bake really good breads and assorted things. And cross stitch some. I tend to find the nerdiest stuff to cross stitch too. 

 

I can also ruin dinner with bizarre facts about ancient societies and myths.

I can act pretty well and I have a good sense of language, which I use occasionally for writing, but mostly for puns.

I'd consider that a great dinner :P I'd love to see some of your cross stitch, too! I did it for several years as a teenager, but then started getting frustrated at how long it took me just to do little bits and gave up on it altogether xD

I can identify several hundred species of birds just by looking at them from a distance.

I'm a librarian. My special LIBRARIAN superpower (and we have many, mind you-Google has nothing on us!) is matching a nonfiction book with a novel, similar to matching a wine with a food. I'm also extremely good at teaching newbs how to cook via text or email. I've had people suggest I make YouTube videos but I've demurred. I've seen what trolls do to people on YouTube, and no. I'm also a blogger. I write on social and political issues. For some reason I couldn't post my wordpress blog on my profile. ???? But whatev....

Well... I draw at my free time. I also paint with acrylic paint (WARNING my style is more like expressionism, so my "art" don't looks any realistic).
