Gianna Mason's Character Photo Essay
Transcript of Gianna Mason's Character Photo Essay
I'm going to be frank here; I spend more time on the internet than anywhere else (Tumblr specifically). In fact, I feel more comfortable alone in my room than with a group of people. I cringe at the very thought of going outside. Who wants to be around bugs anyway? When I'm on the internet, I don't have to worry about what people think of me and I can drown out reality with cute pictures of cats. Plus, it allows me to be part of a creative community that has the same interests as me. Once you experience such an expansive world of art, humor, and comraderie, you can never go back.
Yes, that's me. Before anyone asks, I'm cosplaying as Fionna from Adventure Time in this picture. I think that sentence alone pretty much explains what kind of person I am. I'm one of those people that obsesses over tv shows, hoards cute merchandise, and cries over fictional characters. Of course, I don't always show this side of me in school because I'd probably scare people. Only my family and close friends see the obsessive fangirl side of me. The other side of me is a perfectionist that stresses out over schoolwork and projects, while at the same time procrastinating on said projects. This side of me can often come off as irritable or frustrated, but that isn't who I really am. All I am is a shy fangirl who can get easily overwhelmed by life.
The world sees Gianna as a petite, cute little genius. She seems to know something about everything. She is calm and quiet on the outside, but the world is dying to know what’s going on in the inside. Is she thinking about us? What’s her opinion on this or that? Gianna is a mystery. When she laughs, you may not know why. She stays on the periphery of the crowd and doesn’t draw attention to herself. She speaks softly and with conviction. She seems to be always smiling, which means either God has a firm hold of her, or she knows something that the rest of us do not. She is a good friend when you get to know her. She supports you and reinforces your ideas and feelings. She has a playful mind, but keeps it hidden most of the time. -James Mason
If you have ever had me in one of your classes, you've probably seen me doodling through most of the class. I'm not trying to be disrespectful; drawing is just my way of coping. When I draw, I can express my emotions without having to say a word. Every drawing represents a part of my soul, therefore my drawings are very important to me. Whatever negative emotion I feel is translated on paper and stays there, leaving behind a pretty cool artwork and allowing me to move on. My sketchbook is both my sanctuary and a window to my soul, so don't be surprised if I'm hesitant to show it off. I am an artist at heart, even if I don't end up pursuing it as a career.
My life is dominated primarily by two emotions: excitement and exhaustion. When I'm at school, I almost always feel like a zombie. All the assignments and responsibilities stress me out to the point of exhaustion. Since I'm such an introvert, the social aspect of school wears me out as well. By the end of the day, I just want to sleep in a dark, quiet room. However! I tend to get really excited when I talk about tv shows I like or comics that I've read. Talking about imaginary worlds and characters just makes me really excited because they aren't limited by real-world rules and have endless possibilities. Pretty much anything involving art and stories is exciting to me.
