What do I do? ; A ; I’m too shy but we have a lot of fun talking about video games and have a ton of common interests but he probably already has someone because he’s so charismatic and funny and handsome and I’m far from any of that, hurrgh. I mean my introversion vanishes when we’re talking and my personality bursts but oh gosh I just don’t knowwww.
I have feels all of a sudden. I mean I’ve had feels about other guys but with the knowledge that they weren’t looking but aghh man. I’ll probably spend all semester just looking because I’m too much of a weenie and I’m wayyy not pretty enough and I probably won’t ever see him again after this semester ends….
Well I tripped on my dog today when she got right under my feet and I didn’t see her in time (she’s an 80 lb Labrador that manages to blend in with all our dark color rugs so it was like getting my feet snagged on a locomotive, there was no chance for catching myself) . I dropped my computer and fell on the tile, of all things. My computer bounced and the battery fell out, but MAGICALLY it survived and my memory stick was unharmed as well, thank the Gods. ; A ; All my homework and my story lifelines are on that stick. Thank you thank you thank you, fate, for saving them AND me AND my dog.
My dog and I apologized to each other and made up, no worries about that. She came out no worse for the wear and I came out of it with a bruised knee and a sprained ankle. At least we’re okay for the most part. x’D
I’ve been here and there this week because of work—Black Thursday/Friday hours were ridiculous and sometimes they had way more people than they needed on the floor—but I’ve still managed to get some writing in, hip hip hooray!
I thought that I would be done with Dreamslaughter by Wednesday, really, but because of work that date got all screwed up, and I didn’t realize how much content was actually going to spill out for the last bit of it. (It was way more than I anticipated).
Anyway, I’m writing what I believe should be the final chapter right now. So excited! All that’s left after that is to proof it and make adjustments, which can take time in itself, but it’s not nearly as time consuming as fleshing it out brand new from the brain.
I’m shooting for winter break for it to be worked through—hoping for before, expecting it to be longer. We shall see! :D
Aaaaaa, nooooo! I feel like I’m coming down with something, which I guess would make sense because everyone around me is sick, but nooooo!
I’ve been cold-free for over a year now and I really can’t afford to be sick around this time of year. I hope it’s just allergies, but I’m cranking down the Vitamin C and using all the nasal spray anyway…(but please be allergies really, oh gosh).
the worst feeling about trying to draw is being a mediocre artist. You realize you’re not terrible and family and friends who have can’t draw at all tell you all the time how amazing you are, but you, as the artist, have seen what amazing really is and you realize that it isn’t you.
Finally finished Battle Royale (the book and the movie). Oh my gosh. It was so great. I didn’t like the movie so much because it was wayyy far off from the book…so many things were wrong…that it was hard to go along with it after I’d just read the book and kept going “No, it was supposed to go like…!” But I still loved the story. I actually think I preferred the story of the director of the games in the movie ( the guy who was supposed to be Sakamochi but was Kitano in the movie instead?) better than the insane, weird Sakamochi that gave me the creeps in the book.
My least favorite character was Kiriyama, my most favorite was Shogo…ain’t that predictable? I also liked many others for a while but I gave up hope on loving any characters when Kiriyama made his grand debut.
And oh my geez, when I read the lighthouse scene I was like, “Wow. wOw. Wooooow. WOW. OKAY WOW NO DON’T. NO STOP. REALLY. WHY.”
I’m trying to build up full body “sketch & simple color” references just in case I ever get the guts to start doing commissions here and there. But my mind has gone flat on creating random characters (especially since all my principle characters right now that I’m using and drawing aren’t human and I’ve drawn them too much).
So, if you feel like helping me out, send me an ask with the description of a character I can draw (sort of like requests, yeah?). It can be a random character with wacky features that you put together on the spot, or it can be a previous original character of yours (you just have to be okay with me using it as an example).
I can’t guarantee I’ll get to all of them, since I’m a little slammed right now and I only need a few references, but I’ll do what I can for you guys because I love my followers, y’know? So feel free to insert a request anyway and there’s a possibility that I’ll draw it. (And I’ll send it to you, if you want it.)
I was having such a good time with my classmates watching movies and talking n’ stuff. We laughed and partied and handed out candy and made popcorn and stuff and it was awesome.
Then I came home to discover that some filthy little cockroaches smashed every single one of our five pumpkins in the street, and I didn’t even get to see them lit up.
The only one that survived was our little white pumpkin who, I guess, had extra thick skin. But the pumpkin I spent hours carving to look cute and perfect yesterday was in pieces and I finally got my Dad to carve one this year, and it met the same fate.
Those little parasitic worms, ruining the holiday. I hope Karma bites them in the butt hard. They deserve to cough up hairballs and empty candy wrappers for the rest of their lives, every halloween.
