Hello and welcome to my Journal! I'm not sure what you can expect from this, to be honest.

 I am painting my nails right now. I always feel nicer when they're all turquoise happy shiny and such. So since I can't draw with these drying, blog time!

 I have a story. Recently it snowed again here, and with the snow come complete and utter bus route destruction. I depend on those buses to get to school.  Bus number 1 doesn't run when a certain local college closes, and said college always seems to close when it snows. There goes that bus option! Bus number 2 only runs early morning and late evening. I happened to sleep through that one, so there goes that bus! Bus 3 is my final option to get to school. So hair wet from a shower, (I'm not very smart sometimes.) I made my way to the stop. About an hour later I decide I have had enough waiting in the cold. A bus I don't ride rolls up, and I ask how my route is doing.

  Not so good, apparently. The driver tells me all the buses seem to be getting backed up a ways ahead of this stop. She tells me I have a better chance at the closest transit center to find my route. So she agrees to take me there and off we go! This driver was a supreme driver. We ended up with a bus full of people that needed to get downtown all looking for  bus 3's route. I'm just numbering the buses, these aren't the actual route numbers. Onward, there is no bus 3 at the transit center! So the driver takes us around in search of the bus we all need. We get to a stop light further down the road, and we see something glorious roll by. The bus we all need.
 Unfortunately, it didn't hear the frantic honks this driver sounded at it, and continues down the road. In a show of SUPREME BUS DRIVING SKILL AND DUTY this driver tracked down that bus, intercepted it at one of it's stops and got us all where we needed to go. Bus lady, you will forever be awesome on snowy days. 

I wasn't late to class because my class was at noon anyway, aw ye. Though, in typing this I realize I lost my clear topcoat for my nails. Pfblblblt darn. Nails are dry though, back to art! >:V

 A lot has happened since I've last updated this! I also see a lot of messages have built up in my absence. I feel as if they're far too old to reply to at this point, sorry. I love you guys. :c <3 

 Life has been a mix of ups and downs as of late, but I'm doing a decent job of keeping it together. I hope. I'm now engaged to my girlfriend of 4 years (Soon to be 5!), and she really deserves some credit for being there for me. I know I can be a lot to put up with sometimes. ;o; Mush mush fluff fluff.
 My family is hitting some extremely rough patches, and my parents are getting divorced. Not fun, I wish this divorce wasn't as violent as it's turning out to be. I just hope those who need help can get it soon.
 This quarter in school is going strangely. I've been running myself into the ground the first 4 weeks of this quarter, and as it goes on I realized I'm over complicating things. It's nice to be able to take a breath and relax knowing everything isn't as hard as you once thought. Registered for next quarter already, so lets see how that goes! 
 I am currently saving up for a plane ticket to visit my family and friends in Texas over the summer. I hadn't known plane tickets had gone up so much. I've currently saved $100, and have near another $100 headed my way within the next few weeks. The few that have commissioned me on Deviantart have really helped out. I really appreciate it.  Plane ticket aside, I am definitely going to Pax this year. I doubt I'll have much to spend while I'm there, but man. If I can get enough money saved up to attend that would be magical. Family first, games second.

 Online updates! Moved to a new Deviantart. A fresh start is always nice, especially when my peers ask if I have a gallery online anywhere. I got tired of telling them 'I have a Deviantart, but uh. I don't think you'll like it.'. It's nice to get away from the fandom spew that was my old account! Also moved my sketch blog. Again, haha. Hosting it on Tumblr now because as nice as Blogger is, it always feels like a chore to update anything there. Tumblr is painfully easy to use and update. Fun stuff. I also started a little website to sort of centralize things. I'm still on the free version, but when I can pay for it I'd like to get my own domain and such. I'm not up to coding my own place just yet. 

 I think that's it for now. I hope everyone here has been doing well!

"A Thousand Deaths" [Oct. 26th, 2010|10:42 pm]

   Seeing something I didn't quite recognize in my bookmarks, I stumbled across a pretty neat short story! I have no idea when or why I bookmarked it, but it was fun to read. I thought I would share it with the few friends I have here on lj, haha. c: 

 "I had been in the water about an hour, and cold, exhausted, with a terrible cramp in my right calf, it seemed as though my hour had come. Fruitlessly struggling against the strong ebb tide, I had beheld the maddening procession of the water-front lights slip by, but now a gave up attempting to breast the stream and contended myself with the bitter thoughts of a wasted career, now drawing to a close."

The rest can be read here.

  I don't know why, but I've been in a  real reading mood lately. A friend reminded me of my Dragonite named Hayden from Sun of Suns, so I looked up the book summary to show her what it is. I really want to read it again, so I'm packing that for my long bus rides to and from school. The fifth book should be coming out sometime soon, awesome! I have all of them so far, but I'm afraid I lost track of two of the covers. I never threw them away, I just put them in one of those 'safe places' while a friend borrowed them.  
  In WoW, I've been doing the 'Green Hills Of Stranglethorn' quest line. (I only started it because RP wise, my character would love to read the pages from it.) I've been reading it and goodness. GOODNESS. Everything is magical. 

   School is magical too. Although I'm taking all the Intro classes at the moment (Save for two I was able to get out of since I scored high enough in my AP Art portfolios), I'm having a lot of fun. Delicious Analysis of Form Class. Delicious Intro to Game Development. In about 5-7 weeks my group and I will have a fully developed, original board game. I am very excited. \o/ However, it is time to sleep now. I have to head out early tomorrow to get some work done at school.

 You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.

Read more...Collapse )

 That should fill you guys in! I should also add that my Intro to Game Development class is SO awesome. We're learning about Game Mechanics and what makes a game good and ahh. It's so neat to find out there's actually a /structure/ beneath all the fun. The professor stuck us into groups and we're to make our own game to be tested by the other groups. We're supposed to build it around one of two skeletons he posted. We're doing a sort of photo scavenger hunt game. Multipliers and random events and score brackets, yessss.

 Plus, it was totally awesome that I glanced across the room on one of our breaks to see someone watching a Bioshock Infinite Demo play through. So beautiful. I can't wait for that game. ; v;

Lucid dreams and Chasing dreams [Aug. 25th, 2010|11:09 am]
[Current Mood |optimisticoptimistic]

  I really want to repaint my icon every time I see it. :1 /irrelevant 

   Well, I've been reading a lot about lucid dreaming lately. Last night I finally decided to finally attempt to do it, or at least get a start on it. One of the things I read to do was write an "A" on your palm. Every time you notice the A, you are to do a reality check to see if you're dreaming. I grabbed a sharpie and wrote an obnoxious red A on my left palm. FUNNY THING IS this is the first time I've done anything like this, and in my dream last night I saw the A. I distinctly remember thinking "I'm awake!", but I forgot to do any reality checks. My dream went on with me never noticing I was dreaming WOOPS. I didn't expect to see the A so soon, haha. 

  School has started for my friends already. My days are going by so much slower because of it, ahh. The time for my school is getting closer though. My Grandfather is here in Texas with us right now, and on  Tuesday I'll be flying up to Washington. It feels good to finally have a solid date for the move! I can't say I'll ever be ready to leave my friends in Texas, but there's nothing I can do about it. I need to be able to push forward without clinging to things and people here. ;O; <3 I'm glad that a good deal of my buddies here have Facebook and messengers and such to keep in contact with. I feel bad that I don't seem upset about leaving, but. Wellp. I can't let it get in the way of schoolwork.
   My Grandparents are being so helpful about school too. They're getting me a new computer since the one I have now  can't be upgraded. I mean yeah, it runs all my art programs, but if I were to try and run some modeling programs and other things it would barely have enough power to handle it. They're also helping me get some winter clothes since I have hardly any, and ahh I'm too grateful. ;m;

On a lighter note [Jun. 22nd, 2010|10:40 pm]

 I'm working to keep myself productive art wise during the summer. I was hoping to do that with commissions but some people have yet to pay. :/ I don't want to accept more until I get my list cleared. So. Yeah. Waiting on refs and money. I'm going to start asking for money FIRST from people I don't know and trust. 
OCT. I'm working to get into one, since. Well. To be honest I'm scared of Void since my last battles, and really want something less unforgiving? I want to challenge myself, yes, but I don't need the fear I get at Void, always thinking my stuff isn't good enough, haha. SO. Deviantart OCT GO. Comics aren't easy for me. I don't have the soul for it, and I really struggle to make anything work when doing comics. Just because I can draw doesn't mean I can comic, but I can sure as hell try. xD 

 So, have a laughable picture I found while looking for a ref for man bodies.
You sir are terrifyingCollapse )
Needless to say, I had to erase the guy's face so I could draw properly. 
Why is he smiling so crazy
