The Questions

1. If you were given a chance to shop anywhere and you were given an unlimited budget, where would you shop? Just one store.
Art Friend in Singapore! (If you ask me to live in that store as well, I'd be willing to)

I have thought about this overnight, long and hard. There is absolutely nothing wrong with cooking Christmas food in the summer, so I guess I'd pick summer! Yes. Summer it is.

3. Instagram or Twitter?

I won't survive in the wild so I'd pick Tris even though I don't think I'm half as brave as her.

Oh, hi.

Yeah, I'm alive. Hello, again!

So, Arielle, why haven't you blogged in so long?

Well, let's just say for the past 3 months, I didn't feel like anything was worth posting on my blog. Sure, exciting things did happen, but I didn't feel confident enough to go and write about them. I had big plans for the blog, but then put them off cause they just weren't working out. I had great ideas ready to be published, but as I started writing them, they were just feeling a bit off. 

I have to say, it was the new JacksGap video (shamelessly plugging my favorite Youtuber on my blog) that inspired me to return to Spaceship to Infinity. Just like me, Jack and Finn Harries have also been on quite the hiatus, and they have finally returned to the Youtube scene a few days ago. Jack mentioned at the end of the video to go ahead and cast aside all those worries, and just post.

The video really made me think about Spaceship to Infinity and why I really started it in the first place: to tell stories. I started this blog to share my thoughts and passions with all of you internet folk. I started Spaceship to Infinity to hopefully inspire other people my age to go after what they're most passionate about.

So here I am, retracing my steps back to the beginning, but for a good reason. Here I am bringing back my Spaceship to Infinity.

On another note, big big plans are ahead for this blog that you have been visiting. As much as I'd like to share them with you all, you'll just have to wait and see. Expect more art, of course, and that Q+A video that I have put on hold. Oh well, you'll all see these great things soon! But in the mean time, enjoy this post! (ha ha haha ha)

P.S. I'm up for any collabs, guest posts, or art trades! Email me at! Let's do some projects together!

I Know Write MNL

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I'd be able to do something like this at 15. What an experience. What an experience. You're probably wondering what I'm rambling on about. I'm talking about none other than the first ever teen blogger's meetup I co-organized and co-hosted last Saturday, I Know Write MNL!

How did IKWR come to exist in the blogosphere? Well, my involvement started mid-2013, after my co-host, Jodie, called out to her blog friends asking for fellow co-hosts for a blogger meet-up she was planning. As I have grown to love blogging over the past 3 years, I didn't hesitate to email her back. I've always wanted to plan a blogger's meetup and meet the rest of the Manila teen blog scene! Eventually, we've swapped ideas and then Niña came along to join the team. Ahh, the power of three!

Please excuse this photo as I am very short (as I mentioned in my first vlog) and my co-hosts were pretty much towering above me. Alright, moving on! Let us steer away from the topic of my height! Haha!

The planning part took a really looooong time, about 4 months in fact! We had to think of a funky name, a pretty awesome location, and a whole lot of other shenanigans to make this whole thing a success. I suggested the name I Know Write as a result of my extreme lameness and my love for playing with words, and yeah, eventually it worked out. Haha! As for location, my mom suggested Kuppa, a café in Bonifacio Global City, where she attended a workshop once. (I'm so thankful my parents were also extremely involved with the planning. We wouldn't have gotten ANYWHERE without their help. Since my dad doesn't have a blog, I'll go plug my mom's instead. *spirit fingers* You will now visit my mom's blog aka the cool blogger mom I have been blessed with.)

As things finally started falling into place, one thought came upon us hosts: What in the world are we going to DO?

This got me thinking, "What/who helped me get to where my blog is right now?" There was only one answer to that question: Ate Arriane. If I didn't attend her amazing blogging workshop, Blogworthy, my blog would still be a mess right now. So I decided, hey, wouldn't it be a treat if she could speak for the teen bloggers coming to I Know Write? I went ahead and emailed her, and luckily, she said YES!

So we were finally set, I guess? All we had to do was pray that it was going to go as planned.

Aw man, it turned out BETTER than I expected! A few mishaps happened here and there, but wow, I had so much fun! I just love meeting new people passionate about the same thing I am. I could definitely feel the creative vibes all around the room!

As for Ate Arriane's talk? Wow. It's always so inspiring to hear her talk so passionately about blogging. You can see she doesn't do it for nothing. She blogs to change the world and inspire the youth through creativity. I hope that when I grow up, I get to be as cool and inspiring as she is! 

I don't like to think of us as just a newfound community of Filipino teen bloggers, but as the IKWR Army. ("Woah, Arielle. Why army?") Army because we're changing the world, each one of us, with writing and passion. Don't you think? *cue the confetti throwing*

So on behalf of the I Know Write MNL team, I'd like to thank each and every one of those who participated and gave us the perfect jumpstart to the start of something spectacular. 'Till the next meetup!

P.S. I'd like to close with a couple of instax shots from IKWR. Hooray for rainbow film!

Hoorays + A Treat = ONE BIG YAY

Aw man, I just happened to log on to my blog dashboard to go do my usual bloghop, when I see that I've hit 200 followers.


Gosh, thank you so much to each and every one of you! I still remember that moment when I started this blog with ridiculous posts that have been deleted from the face of the earth. I never imagined it would turn into something like this! I just can't believe it! Thank you all so much! From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Anyway, I have something for you guys as a treat! With the "somewhat success" of my first vlog, I've decided to make another one, but I want you guys to get involved with it! Since a lot of you email me with lots of questions to ask and all that fun stuff, I'll be making a Q + A video! If you have any questions for me, just feel free to comment them below! It doesn't necessarily have to be about art. *wink wink* So comment your questions away! I'd love to hear from you all!

Again, thank you all so much for the 200 followers! You guys are the best and the blog wouldn't have made it this far if it weren't for all your love! Love you all!

Seize the Day

HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR, BLOG FRIENDS! I pray that this year will have lots of awesomeness in store for all of us!

2013 was a great year for Spaceship to Infinity. I reached a hundred followers last March, and right now, I'm a few followers away from 200! Also this year, so many of you have sent me the most touching messages about how much you love my art, and reading my blog. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU! 

Everyone has got goals, and every new year, we always write a new list with things we want to achieve. We write stuff about the things we want to see and experience, or the places we want to visit. I'm very excited for the new adventures I will be having this new year. So here I am sharing with you what I hope to achieve and experience this 2014:

{ 300 blog followers }
I'm currently 7 away from 200 followers. But who knows? 300 followers this year? Let's do it!

{ more original, less fan art }
Most of you probably know me for the fan art I post. I won't stop posting fan art, but I think it's about time that I should post more original artwork.

{ hello new vlogs }
After the somewhat "success" of my first vlog, so many of you have sent in great ideas for future videos! So stay tuned for more videos of my awkward rambling and chattiness about the things that make me happy. Woohoo!

{ I Know Write MNL }
This is what I am MOST excited about for the year 2014. Along with fellow Filipino teen bloggers, Jodie and Niña, I'm helping out plan a meet up for the teen bloggers here in Manila, so we can build up a community of teen bloggers! If you're from Manila and would like to participate, you can check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and the IKWR blog! See you there! 

I'm really looking forward to what 2014 has got for me. What about you? What are you looking forward to this year?
