So as to bring art back into my life, I figure I could start streaming on a regular basis, so as to have a reason to hold myself accountable?  And for anybody interested in watching/conversing with me...

No set schedule yet, but probs Tuesday afternoons or Sat/Sun evenings. :]

Live Stream Open!....30 min ago...my b.
   Livestream Closed.  I'll update when it's open again!

So I have decided to get back into art. Like, really back into it.  Posts will sill be sparse due to being in school (again) and working full time, but I did some thinking and reflecting and realized I should still set aside some time for my hobbies. Since art has been such a big part of my life I decided to devote more of my time for it. 

And to start that stage, I need to do some Spring Cleaning.  Get rid of some old art, possibly add some new, do some organizing, and just change things up.  :]

So, bit by bit my page shall be changing, but only within the parameters of a non-premium member. ;p 

Keep watching folks (and be patient...)!

Dear Secret Santa,

   For Christmas this year I wish for world peace and the end to all wars and strife.  

     Buuuuuut if that's not feasible I would just adore some artwork of some sort. :]  

    Legend of Zelda fanart  - My favorite game series by far! I'm even getting a tattoo (eventually) of the Hyrulian Bird and the Triforce. :]
             www.zelda.com/universe/?ref=ht…
              Link: A Hero's Legacy by Nardhwen Zelink- Our Destiny by Nardhwen
        
    Sesshoumaru/Kagome fanart - I don't know what it is about this couple but I just love them together so much.
              Raindrops 07 - Page 33 by YoukaiYume SesshKag:The Lady and The Lord by Nardhwen +SessKag+ Tug o' Luv by YoukaiYume +SessKag+ Everyday Love 5 by YoukaiYume

    Okami fanart - these games are so fun to play and I like the different artstyle this game uses.
        
     

    A group (or even just one of them) picture of my characters (and 1 of my friends :p)
                Hanging Out by Tenno-chan Nya says 'Hiya' by Tenno-chan Nya-chan :D by Tenno-chan

   Pomples... (Pomples everywhere)              
             Hungry Pomple by Tenno-chan

    My Pokemon team
            
             YOU'RE SO CUTE by Tenno-chan
          You can use these guys or switch Blastoise with Feraligator. Either way, there's a pretty boss water starter. :]

Thanks so much, Secret-Santa! You are awesome!!

Well...I figure I ought to put something up here since it's been about a year since my last journal update.  

Can't say a whole lot has happened really.  Just going through the motions of life and quite frankly, I'm enjoying it. :]   There are those down moments and moments of absolute rage, but all things considered it's all pretty awesome.  

I'm in my last semesters of college, almost down to two semesters left until I get my Bachelor's Degree in Zoology!  Just need to make it through exams week!  I'm currently enjoying my last moments of lazy before I hit the books and the computers, writing down last minute notes and study questions.  And then I head home!

I'm thrilled to go home and see my wonderful boyfriend and his family, and then it's to Colorado to see my own for Christmas. :]  I haven't decided yet if I will wait to give everyone at home their Christmas presents before or after I leave yet.  I kinda like the idea of makin' em' wait. >:]   But at the same time I'm pretty excited about their gifts! XD  But between all the catching up and Christmas festivities I will also be drowning myself in the awesome game that is Legen of Zelda: Skyward Sword!  It's such a fun game! XD  I haven't been able to play it these last few weeks since I left it at home...though it has probably been for the best. >.>

And as for art, I'm getting stuff done, slowly but surely.  I've gotten two things up in the last month or two! Hopefully I'll get more up soon as well...but between family, friends, and Zelda, I wouldn't hold my breath. Let's be serious. :p  And while we're serious, I'll just go ahead and say it'll mostly be Zelda that keeps me from art....

Happy Holidays, folks! :D

:bulletyellow:  If all else fails SURPRISE ME!! XD

Thanks again!  I will try to get some more of the couple up, I have a few sketches on hand.  I wish I had more of Akusai and Tenno, but I don't draw them all that often... e_e   And Sessho and Kags you can google.... :D

Thanks and Happy Drawing! :D

Oh Deviantart. You make me smile.  They changed my avi to "<3 <3 Team Jacob".  And while I am  not a Twilight fangirl, if I was, I'd totally be Team Jacob. :] How fitting.  Although, I would much rather be "Team Seeker".  I <3 that show much more than Twilight and Jacob...

Guh...Kevin got Team Seeker. Sad. ;_;

So it's been a while again since my last update.  And I have no reason to have been gone so long. I haven't been busy. But then again that's another reason for not updating my journals....

That aside, the winter semester started up last week.  I can honestly say I didn't want to come back to school. I like being at home, and spending so much time away from it really intensifies that feeling.  That and I liked not having to worry about homework or grades. :]

Anyway, last semester ended on not too great a note. Grades could have been better (sounds familiar...), and I have only myself...well mostly myself to blame.  I really didn't have weekends through the semester, what with going to Houghton instead of doing homework. e.e But I did pass all my classes, which is good. And, as far as I can tell, did not lose any financial aid. So a plus in my book.

This semester will hopefully go better. I know what needs to be done and that real college is much, much different than community college, and thus requires more work and studying.  I'm not doing have bad right now, but we're only a second week in.  

Life in general is decent.  I recently (yesterday) began pondering what exactly I'm doing for my future. Right now it's just securing an education. And now-a-days that isn't enough.  I want to do more, get out and volunteer, or find some kind of internship or something, however, I never really look, and when an opportunity presents itself, it's  'too much work' and I just let it lie for someone else to take.  I never beat myself up too much over it, but this particular instance seems to be particularly bothering me.  Probably because this oppourtinity is exactly what will send me on my way toward my ideal career.  But there is that one mental road block: too much work.  That and its a leadership thing.  I don't see myself as much of a leader and I don't care for the responsibility.  I'm such a kid at heart to the point I have yet to 'grow up' so to speak.  Sure I can get things done, take charge and do what needs to be done, but it's never at an ideal time and it's usually when it benefits me, not because it has to be done or it's the right thing to do.

My other issue with this is that it's basically like an honors program, and I've had not so good experiences with such programs. Probably because I joined them for reasons other than I wanted to be apart of a group that was for the greater good.  It was always because 'it looked good on my resume' or the scholarships.  This group is a good thing to have under one's belt, but I'm not so sure I'd get out of it what others are.  I'd always have that horrible thought that
it's too much work' and 'I am not having fun' blah blah blah.  

Ugh. I'm just talking in circles.  Sorry everyone. :

But now on to art, as this is what I wanted to talk about anyway. e_e


So I'm still doing the 100 challenge, but I've also taken on another one: Vanstane's Valentine's Day Challenge!

Since it is for Valentine's Day, the themes are all kisses.  There are 14 themes, as the day itself falls on the 14th of February.  

If you're new to challenges, they are basically lists with themes (there is no set rule for the number of themes). Also, there usually isn't a restriction on the medium used, so it's not all about 2-d, it can be 3-d or your artistic weapon of choice so to speak :D There is no deadline, though it would be cool if it could be completed by the 14th. If you have any questions feel free to ask :D

1. Aggressive Kiss
2. Blow/Air Kiss
3. Butterfly/Eyelash Kiss
4. Cheek Kiss
5. Ear Kiss
6. Eskimo Kiss
7. Hand Kiss
8. Forehead Kiss
9. Underwater Kiss
10. In the Rain Kiss
11. Upside Down Kiss
12. Surprise/Tackle Kiss
13. Neck Kiss
14. Any Kiss

The last theme "Any Kiss" is be a freebie theme, for anyone participating that feels that a type of kiss is missing. Please be sure to send me a note/link if you participate and I will be sure to feature it here and my front page! Thx and take care! :heart:


I'm going to push myself to get it all done by Valentine's Day, and *knocks on wood* so far I have two sketched out and one completely done. :)  

Good luck to any who tackles this one!

And because I'm not even close to done with this one, here is the 100 challenge.

Oh boy....It's been months Since I've last updated.  I think it may be a record. e.e

April.  A whole summer's gone by and most of the fall.  Well, I guess it doesn't make a whole lot of difference,a s not much goes on in the life of one Amanda O.. And since no one has mentioned it, I've kinda let time get away from me.  It's not as if I don't go to DA anymore; quite the contrary actually. I've been keeping up with journals and messages (W00t! Went from a really large amount to 0!) and trying to get up to date with deviations (down to 646 from 1,00+).  I just haven't been updating my art and journals.  I have some art stuff done, which I'll go ahead and post; I was waiting to finish some more, as they all share a common theme, but oh well. So I guess, expect some art here soon. :)


But on to other things: An update on life,

   As I said in April, I am now done with Schoolcraft for the most part, I still may do Wind Ensamble just because I don't play much on my own. But we'll see when summer hits.  Now I'm at Northern Michigan U way up in the Upper Peninsula.  No snow yet... almost, but not quite.  Classes started the last week of August, so I'm about halfway through the semester already (time's sure flying @_@).  Not too hard yet, only 2 exams and one tomorrow actually, and another take home one on Wednesday.  So can't complain.  My only real complaint class-wise is that I have a butt-ton of classes on Friday. >_<  I've missed two of my morning classes due to oversleeping... e.e  But meh.

   I'm in the Marching Band here at NMU which is really cool. My roommate and one suite-mate turned out to be in the band, too which is really awesome. Band is fun, though admirably, not as fun as high school... :   Though it could be because of jumping right in during Junior year, and also that I'm still new. I'll see what next year brings.  But...still fun. :D  (Game days kinda suck tho. ><)

  Adjusting to campus life wasn't too hard. One week recently was harder than others, but got over that real fast. I still miss home some days tho (of course), but it helps that I'm not the only one I know up her from back home. Kevin goes to Tech and I get to see him more often (bonus!).  Actually, I'm playing DND with him and his friends this semester, so it's basically and every week basis. :p   I haven't gone home yet (and won't til the semester's over), so it's a good thing there's someone else up here with me, even if he's two hours away. ^^


Um.... I think that's it for updates, and I'll try, try, try, to not wait so long with updates.  I feel like I'm talking your ears off...

So, now features and projects! :D Because I said I would. ^^
Rules:
First 14 to comment on this journal, requesting a slot, will get 3 pieces from their gallery featured by me. I will choose the pieces I like best.
In return, those Deviants featured will have to create their own Feature Journal, placing me in the first slot; leading to a total of 15 Featured Deviants.

0h boy....where to start ?     well, from lass entry I guess... or better yet, Just an update from last time. :)


well, less start with school, as that's generally what I start with in these things.   It's nearing the end of the semester for us college folk (sorry high school guys, you got awhile yet :/), which means exams, exams , exams. :work:   I'm not sure about others, but I am more than worried about the next two weeks.  I have two finals this week, which I've thus far done little to nothing to prepare for...instead I'm drawing and lurking deviant's galleries. e.e  

Such is my life....

After these two self-induced stressful weeks I'm done with Schoolcraft for ever!...kinda. I'm still going to be in their wind ensemble just because I don't play my trumpet on my own. e.e  But that aside, I got nothing else there. I get my Associates and then wait till August to finish my education at NMU! :excited:

But first these two weeks. -_-

In other news, ....  there is no news. X[  I don't get out much, if it's not been said before.  


OH!!! But yes, a featured section. Why? Because I made a deal, and I'm taking his concept of it too. It's pretty interesting and provides a way of shameless advertising!! YAY!! :D

Rules:
First 14 to comment on this journal, requesting a slot, will get 3 pieces from their gallery featured by me. I will choose the pieces I like best.
In return, those Deviants featured will have to create their own Feature Journal, placing me in the first slot; leading to a total of 15 Featured Deviants.

*le gasp!*  An update!  In less than 6 months! Something must be terribly amiss! Oh me, oh my! We must hurry! Do something to avert a terrible catastrophe!!!!!!!!! D8


*cough* Okay. :movingon:  Moving on.

So yes, an update. Called in a 'Day in the Life of....' because it's not been too long since the last update. :D

So now to the actual updates!   Life is going good.  School's....well it's school.  Can complain about it...and I will...but it really isn't that bad. But what to complain about? Well, I'm not to keen on any of my teachers.  My Bio teacher, though I had him for Bio last semester, this one he's piling a lot more work on us. Though...if I think about it, it's all easy work. The bio labs are due two weeks after we do the lab, versus last semester it was one. And they're so much easier. Just a few tables and answer some questions, versus a full on one, with analysis, results, conclusion and all that fun stuff.  Though it doesn't make much difference since I do it the night before like always....in the logic of Julie at 12:30 am --"It's Monday night, Amanda's awake."   So really, it's not my teacher I have a problem with...it's me.  I'm also not doing well on the tests.  Failed a quiz completely T^T.  20%. Srsly. DX  Not cool.  Tests I've gotten C's on.  This is my field of study...and I'm failing! Though...Lab reports I've done a lot better on than last semester. Weird.  I just need to work on not talking during class. I'm sitting next to a fellow nerd and band geek. Bad combination.  

But, enough of my problems with bio...on to my problems with Speech!!!  ....Not much really.  I'm doing really well in that class. Only one 3.9, rest are 4.'s.  My complaints rest on my teacher.  She's old. Not to say old is bad, but she's at that point where she needs to retire.  Either that, or she is just a personality type I don't get along with well.  On the bright side though, the person I sit next to, Joel, it cool.  We kid around a bit. He tried to volunteer me to give my speech before I wanted to...the jerk. =P

Psychology tiem! Oh Boy!  Joel's in this class too...but we don't sit next to each other. 'Sall good though.  My psych teacher, a decent guy, don't get me wrong, but he's just one of those teachers that 'wants us to get our monies worth' from the class....and rambles for 2. hours. straight. X[  And it wouldn't be so bad, if I actually liked what he talked about.  I like psychology and all, it's an absolutely fascinating subject...just not the way he approaches it.  Or just not what he talks about most of the time. I'm more interested in personality traits, memories, and other fun stuff like that. :D  But, that aside, not a bad class. I just need to find an effective way to use those to hours wisely...like taking notes, instead of staring off into space or drawing. e.e   

And Sociology! :D......-_-.  I am not a sociologist. I don't think like they do. And so I don't much care for the class. But I have to take it (damn honors programs).  And I think...my teacher doesn't like me too much.  : We'll see. I have to observe some more. Maybe experiment some. ...Does that sound as bad/weird as I think it does?  And see! This proves my non-sociologist-ness. I'm a science person. >< But whatevs.

And one more thing about school.  It's Spring Break (or more officially, 'Mid-Winter Break' ).  And while most people are happy and excited for it...I want it to be over.

"What?! What are you on, Amanda?! Why would you possibly want to go back to school?"

"That is an excellent question." (Meet the Robinsons...awesome movie)

I want it to be over because.......the following week will be an awesome week.  Kevin will be in town. Which means, I go out more. Well...I just go out. XD I don't do anything on my own. Sad I know. Srsly. I'll go to my best friend's house out of the blue sometimes. And we've known each other for 8 years now (XD). And I'm just starting to do this. Having a car helps. But still! I'll still call and ask her, when I don't need to. I asked her mom if I would spend the night. She looked at me like I'd grown two heads. I really don't need to ask. I just do. e.e  But I digress.  

Despite my desire for break to be over, I really don't want it to be. I have a crap ton of homework to do: term paper (you'll have a field day with that one Kev, I'm sure. ^^), psych note-4 chapters, bio quiz ("easy, peasy, rice and cheesy" ), um...other stuff...>< I have it all written down.  And I have to get it done while I still can.  I'm not going to get much done the following week. And by much I mean none. So yeah. Fun.

Speaking of which....Fun stuff now! :D

New task has been undertaken! XD

OMG D8!!!!   It's finally another overall update journal! after a long 6(almost 7 maybe?) months  I am finally doing an update!

.... Though I really don't think I should wait so long... o.o  Everyone writes so much! >.< 'since I procrastinate so much I never read jouranals on Look a devs for a long tire. As it stands, I have 240 journals to read d 730 devs to look at.... I think I best get on those, huh? I hope nothing seriously bad has happened to any of you... o.o

But now to the In the Life of 'sit of this journal :3

Not a whole lot of stuff going on in my life, but that's not to say what has gone on isn't big, either. So let's get started, shall we? :D  summer was a blast! Hung out w/ the same 2 people But it's all good. they are awesome. <3 N ended on a slightly bittersweet note, but I find that it was more on the sweet side of things. :3 The fall semester started  easy enough, but I quickly found that it would be hell... kinda. And The bad part is that I out myself there! X( But! I got thru it! with lots of complaining on my part & encouragement on Friends in mostly Kevin's. :]

Winter Break was FUN! XD spent it with the same two people mostly (same People from Summer too...) w/ a 102 of guest-appearance. One actually was a Regular.... Bur etheir way everyone was/is totally awesome!! Winter Break ended too soon. you get used to people being around, & w then they here to leave again it's... came. -_- But, maybe its: a good thing... staying focused on homework might be a Led easier... ha... I made a funny. =p

So the new semester of school starts... tomorrow! well for mos.-anyway. it officially started yesterday. It's my last sem at Scruff: thon I'm off to NMU! <3 I'm so excited. But! I can wait. F: still have lot of Stuff to get done this semi and I'm aiming high too....

1) Financial aide
2)." Other school Stuff... (my 'to do' list...)

But what "I'm Really going to work on is the stuff that makes my life very hard at times... usually @ the end of the Semester
1) I in not going to procrastinate.... srsly..I'd put a lame joke here but it would rot help >.>
2) I will keep my room Clear!! ... first though I have to yet it there e.e Cit goes with 1).
3)... I don't remember.... there was a third one though.
But yeah, I wave Pleanty of time to worker it all, & hopefully I'll make progress 8D

Am I being too hopeful?

One of these days I'm going to add another DitLo...

Anywho, just wanted to get this out. Told two of my friends, but in hardly enough detail. Also wanted other people to know this, but they won't see it; well I doubt they will anyway...

So I just saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night.  Decent move, I guess. Not great, but not bad either. Maybe it's just because that's how I thought it'd be... Who knows. Though despite that, it's a memorable story only for the fact it teaches so much.  One line in the movie especially got me.  Mostly because I can relate.

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go."

I just wanted to break down. It's so true, but what really bites is that not everyone gets it.  And unfortunately when some that do get it, its far too late.


It's another one of those 'Don't ask' things. So don't worry about it, k?

So where to start?  A lot has happened these past few months. A bunch of stuff....mostly all fun.  :)  But I won't get into the details, only because I am lazy right now. But to sum things up, I went to NMU and loved it. I got accepted so I'm going there next fall. Had a fun all summer. Basically hung out with the same two people, but it's all good because they're awesome.  And......um....some other fun stuff happened, but I can't remember.

What I really wanted to just get off my chest (nothing bad, mostly just an excuse not to do homework), was the fact I'm starting this semester off fantastically....not really.  My English class is going well, haven't screwed up any assignments or missed any yet. My physics class...that's not going so well.  Haven't missed any assignments or anything, but my teacher makes me want to just go home.  She's a great lady and all, and a good teacher, but not for me.  I don't really understand the way she goes about a problem and so I can't solve it on my own.  My only salvation in the class are the labs and the cheats sheets get for the tests.  There's another class after this one next semester, but I'm not going to take it. Not until I go to NMU.   Unless I somehow acquire the ability to comprehend her method...
Biology...that's my worst class.  And I find it kind of ironic because that's basically the field I want to go into.  So far we've turned in three assignments.  All three, I've botched in someway.  An the third one, I've not even turned in.  I still have the chance to turn it in, I'll get points marked off though, but still, a zeros better than nothing.  But this is where I get upset with myself.  The past three days I've tried to finish this assignment, depriving myself of sleep so I can perhaps make progress.  However, it's thus far been in vain since I have not made any progress...AT ALL.  And because of this, I am at the point where I just want to say 'Fuck it, I'm not getting anything done, so whats the point?'  But I still want to try, only because I do care about my education, and I do not like just missing assignments so early in the semester.  Also, I don't want my teacher to think I don't care, or that I'm not going to try.  But...I just can't focus! I don't get it ><. Every attempt I've made has failed miserably and I just don't know what to do.  I don't just want to give up on this assignment, but I also don't want to mess with it anymore.

But oh well. such is life, I guess.

Thanks for listening.

Ugh.....I really need to work on putting more journals I think.  I dunno.  Really doesn't matter much, seeing as I don't do much of anything, and there's hardly anything exciting that goes on in my life... e.e

Um, so things that have been going on in the past four months:

Finished the winter semester with high marks, which was really nice.  I was quite surprised considering I didn't do all the work for one of my classes. But! I don;t like to question a good thing, so I won't. :)  Now I'm in the spring semester and am only taking one class. It's a basic computers class with html stuffs in it.  Html is uber fun. :D  We were supposed to make a website as a final project, but since my teacher is slow and there wouldn't be enough time anyway, we aren't doing one....which makes me sad. ;_;
I actually started my website already, and it's so cool. XD  All it is, is just lyrics to songs in my library that I type along with the music. It's kinda like a challenge, keeping up with the music. I'm still going to finish it, though...because it's worth it and it's fun. :)  

I'm trying to visit NMU this summer, but I need to see when they're doing tours or whatever.  I'm just lazy and don't think about it when I'm on the computer...except for right now....and right now I'm busy.  I'll just open a new tab as a reminder. >.>  Yeah, my gramma and aunt don't want me going so far away, but from what I've read and seen, it's the type of environment I would absolutely flourish in.  I can't handle big schools. Too much stuff going on and hardly enough learning time. I'd get distracted and lazy. O.o not good.   At NMU I'd be a little more focused I think.  And I just like the small town settings. ^^ They're so quaint and stuff. =P


Alright, other matters. Life in general....
Not much has been going on really. Been working. Fun times. e.e
About finished with this one project I've been working on since about November. Ugh...relief!  Of course, after I finish, I'll have another project that's basically the same damn thing  which has me a little peeved. But, I'm not going to complain, seeing as it's easy money. :shrug:  

Outside of work I've been doing a bit more art than I have been in recent times. But I'm still slow, so it takes a while.  And I have some of my art that I'm coloring, which is nice.  I'm still coloring for Managarm, but it's because I want to.  Her art is so pretty. <3 I'm also in the process of coloring something of BananAdopt's. I've put it on hold though since I have a different art program. It's kind of lame, but it just doesn't feel right working on the pic in Elements ....  I dunno...I might just cave anyway because I want to finish and show you all. XD It's so pretty!

Lesse, I've been getting out more, which is always nice.  Usually I'm hanging out with Kevin and Mike and Lisa, and sometimes Ray. It's always good fun, and laughter is practically guaranteed. :D  I try to hang out with other people, but it's a tid difficult, and it's mostly me that makes it such. :P  You see, I am a lazy bum and still don't have my liscense.  It's not that I don't want it, it's just that I don't have a car yet, and every one is so dammed busy with everything. Not to mention that gram and Kris want me to practice backing up before I go for my test! Brandon has offered, but I declined...I'll just pissed off at him cuz of his stupid tone of voice, whether he means it or not....  But I digress.  The reason I don't hang out as much is because I hate, absolutely hate calling people up and being like "hey, you wanna hang out? Okay pick me up!" *insert cheesy smile*.  -_- yeah...it bothers me that I have to do that.  I'm sure it's just as annoying to be on the receiving end of that too... Funny thing though...I wouldn't mind in the least if  someone said that to me...huh...

....so that's about it I guess...OH! I'm getting a bigger room :3  Brandon's moving out. And as soon as I (or Brandon...preferably him since it was his room) get it cleaned up, I'm expanding my room! :D  The only things I'm worried about is that gramma is going to be even more overbaring since she's got only me to pick on, and that my imagination is going to pick on me and make me think shits moving around in my room. D:

So Yes! All done with the update. :D

P.S.  My gramma is not all that mean....she just can be.

O.o......<<....>>....XD

I am...so...excited XD   I am all caught up with my journals and deviations! *le gasp*  XD The journals I was up to date at my last journal entry, but I still had the deviations to go through.  I would look at some sometimes, but then I'd have to go somewhere and do something which would cause me to get sidetracked and stop looking at devs.   So, the numbers would climb back up again.  BUT, thanks to two hours between classes, I was able to go from 300 to 58 devs! :D  Made me so happy.  I finished the rest tonight, because I did not want to have a repeat again. -_-

But yes, on to my life events since January....

My new LapTop, Super LapperTop 2, is super amazing! XD  It works so well, the sound is amazing, as is the screen. AND I can walk around with my laptop with out it being plugged in and I have wireless.  <3 I'm happiest about the walking around thing.  So yeah, SLT2 has served me well this past month and will continue doing so. :D

School wise, I'm doing well.  I have a lot more reading this sem, than I did last and it's really aggravating.  I think this week has been the first week where I didn't have to work on  homowork during the two hour break.  It was very, very nice. And it is something I'm going to strive for now. Also, I don't want to get any further behind....

I've made new friends in my classes this semester which is very cool. :D Something at one of my new friends (Nathan) and I do, is be very sarcastic to each other.  It's very humorous to listen to and take part in. :)   Yeah, other new friends I talk to like I would other friends. Share jokes and everything.  

Someting really nifty to just tell you all, is that Schoolcraft was giving away a buch o' cook books the other day, and my friend John Spr...something....and I went up to go see what they had, and ohmigoodness! The selections was pretty darned good! I got four books for myself with some pretty nice recipes in them.  And John...omg..he go what I consider a gold mine of recipes.  It's a cook book from 56 and it has so many good reciepies in it, it's amazing! <3  I wanted it, but he called dibs first. The book...it has directions on making ice cream...ICE CREAM!  Granted, I know it's not hard to make, but still! What makes me laugh about these books though, is that being from the 70s, MSG is an ingredient in some of the recipes. XD Made me laugh.

Um.....relationship dept.?  Still single. And I'm okay (kind of) with that.  I can't get too bummed about it any how, seeing as it's partially my fault.  There have been guys that like me, but either I haven't liked them and/or there were extenuating circumstances that would not allow for a relationship.  So yeh....ummmm next item on the list!

Which is...um...><...Oh yeah! Spring BreaK!  It's next week actually.  And I am so totally awesome that I am going to be working all week! :D Ain't it awesome? (no not really).  I will be hanging out with friends though that week which will in fact be awesome. :)

That's all I have for now, so toodles!

Oh! I'll have some pics comming up soon. :)  I've been going through stuff and finding some nifty shots I took that would be great on here.

And to  all my awesome uber cool friends, I luz ya'lls!

I've been gone for quite a while.  Six months...give or take one....

DA has changed a bit....not necessarily in a bad way, either.  I just got to get used to it.  Um...lots...and lots...and LOTS (-_-) of journals to go through and deviations too.  I think I have like 200 journals and 300 devs.  I decided though to just go through the recent journals and get rid of the rest.  It bothers me some, though, since I like to know what's going on in my friends lives and the lives of the artists I watch...but geeze ya'll write a lot.  So, I'm just taking a leap of faith nothing major-ly bad happened that I missed.  *hopes*  

So, as for me, I've been doing well.  One semester of college under my belt and another on starting! My first semester was, well let's face it, Hell.  I was stressed beyond words, pulled more all-nighters those four months than my entire senior year of high school, homework up the wazoo which kept me up past three most nights, and a presentation that sucked ass! BUT! I got through it with a high GPA so I can't complain...and I got money from my job :)   

Um...drawing kind of took a down slide during the semester..BUT!  This probably isn't a good thing, but my ability to draw profile faces improved GREATLY during school...specifically my Ancient world history class. Which is totally bizarre to me because I love ancient history....  IT WAS MY TEACHER! *growl* I  couldn't stand that guy! He would make crude and inappropriate comments about sex at the most ridiculous times! And that (along with other things) caused my respect and trust in his competence to drop almost to nothing.  On a lighter note though, the term paper I had to do for that song was so very fun to do <3.  Surprising, ne? Well I got to choose my subject and I chose Ancient Egypt, the once missing Queen  Hatshepsut  to be precise. :D

I had a very nice hiatus from school. Christmas was great, got lots of stuff I wanted, and everyone liked their gifts, so thats great. :)  New Year's was fun too. Spent the night at a friends house...missed the ball dropping but :shrug: I'll live.  Um....OH! I got a few drawings done that I am AMAZINGLY proud of. <3 I'll get them up soon.  I thought of a new character (and another...so that makes two) which I'll get up here, too. Um...yeah......

ZOIDHFoKFHdlkfhdsluioF OMFG!!!!!!!</i>  I gotz a new Laptop!! XDDDDDDD HOLY FIRKEN COW IS IT NICE! XD  I'm calling him SLT2...which is short for SUper LapperTop Two.  He's even got a cool persona drawing I did for him. XD  ...How weird is it that i gave my compu a persona and a sex??????

Um..well yes...I'll post again soon.  I hope to frequent DA more now that my schedule is a little less hectic...for now.  Spring is gonna be a bitch I already know. -_-

Okay, yes another survay.  I think I'm getting down to the last ones.  

Right-o!  Where did I leave off last time?  Kentucky, Graduation...laptop issues, with more than I mentioned :).

SO! Um...I have a job, and I'm working every office day...cuz I work in an office. :D  It's good, I work half the day inside, then eat lunch (while working) then go outside to weed and stuff.  Although I haven't gotten much outside time due to everyone wanting me to do stuff for them...I think for the three weeks I've been working I've only gotten outside for three days...and about 10-15 hours.  Yeh...I'm not to happy about that. But my aunt got good complements about me soooo yeh I guess it's okay.  Although...I've had to answer phones for the first two weeks and the past three days and...yeh...don't like it. At all.  I can tolerate people, but I have my limits. This jobs tests that.  Especially since yesterday this one bitch of a lady decided to be inconsiderate and bitch at me because I didn't know what roads were where and what direction! I'm sorry that I don't pay attention becuase I don't drive! SUE ME!  Grar...yeh....she..it (not entirely sure)...made my day not so great.  

Um aside from work stuffs, I'm trying to enjoy my summer the best I can with office hours.  I have my first almost free weekend this weekend. I happy for that, and yet not.  I'm not only cuz I don't know what I'm gonna do now.  Buuut I'll find something I guess.  Um...just saw Ratatouille, twas awesome.  Linguini is my favorite.  Flirted a lot with someone on Sunday... that was interesting.  And fun :). Um...not much else on that note.

For plans for the summer, I'm going to Iowa on Tuesday, staying till Friday.  The dogs are gonna be put in a very nice kennel place until , we hope friday night, if not we'll get them Sat. morning.  I'm kind of looking forward to that, but kind of not. Like all family road trips.  I was planning a trip to Indy with friends, but unfortunatly, thoese plans have to be postponed.  I'm sorry all.  Here are the reasons:
1) There is no way I'm going to have my liscense buy the time we go, and Jon is NOT driving the entire time.  I would feel too bad and it's not fair to him.
2) MOney...nuff said.
3) It'd be easier for Sera to go since she will be older, and Zac too.  (Again, sorry Zac for not telling you about the trip earlier ^^;. Please forgive me.)
4) I was invited to go on a camping trip with friends, and I love camping to death so I accepted.  And since I feel two trips for my frist summer out of high school is enough, and since I don't want to miss that much work....yeh.  Besides, Indiana will be there next summer, Camping may not.  Please, Please, Please do not get mad at me!  I feel selfish for doing this instead of Indy, and I also feel like I'm kind of betraying you all, please don't make it worse.

Um, techno party...yeah, definatly a go.  Michelle, I need to speaks with you about that, about dates and guest list and                              sturfs.  I'm really thankful your parents are letting you hold it in your garage.  And be aware all that hope to attened, it will be a late aftermoon event.  It will go late, I hope, but music has to be kept to a minimum as the night grows.  Again, Michelle, I must speaks with ye.

My laptop...yeh..it's dying...slowly.  The screen keeps going funny colors, it rattels, and it's got quite the nasty virus on it. :(  I plan on getting a new one after school starts, but it will be quite sad to loose this one.  *hugs lappy*  LapperTop has been so faithful and wonderous to me. *sniff*  And I treat him not that great...*sniff*.

Yep...that's abotu it for now.  If I think of something else I'll add it in my next DItLo.  Now enjoy this latest survay!

So yes! Another DITLO...And a Survay!

Okay  so a whole lot of stuff has been going on lately.  More than I care to go into, but I shall anyway because...well just because.

For Memorial day, we (my family and I) went to Kentucky to visit my family and celebrate my uncle's 70th birtday.  It was very fun.  We went to Churchill Downs, and I got to bet on horses.  I only spent two of my own dollars and then bet on horses with my step-cousin.  ...YEah...there's a reason why I don't bet or gamble.  None of my horses won...didn't even get in the top four.  COME ON!! With a name like Angry Pirate you'd think he'd do better!

The night before that we went to hang out with Megan's friends.  It was fun.  I forget all their names, sadly, except for two.  Chelsea (if that's how it's spelled) and Billy.  Billy was funny.  I liked him.  He was drunk for that last bit we were there and he was funny.  He made a pun about the wii.

"I like the wii, it's fun.  I especially like playing with my wii."  It was something like that, and funnier.  

He asked if anyone got it and I said that it was nice, while chuckling.  He pointed out that I got it rather loudly. It made me smile.  

Then the last morning we were there we visited my aunt CC's and Cousin Jimmy's graves.  I hardly knew CC, didn't even know Jimmy, but I almost cried from the feelings of everyone else alone.  Another reason I don't like tears....

It was in KY that someone compared me to my mother in a positive way (usualy people compare me to Kris), and it made me smile.  Jonathan and Susan have got to be the coolest cousins ever...ever....


So yea, after that, the next big even was GraduatioN!  Woo! Out of the Hell we call High School education! To be honest it feels just like any other summer with the exception that I'm working and I have yet to have a free weekend!  Wewt!  Also I'm preparing to go to college.  I'm really supposed to be writing a letter for an honors program...buuut...yeh...I hate writing about myself...especially when It has to be in detail.  Grar.


Um...not much more to say..at least, not much more I want to say. I'm really tired right now, and this is really just to get ya'llup to speed. I'll put another journal with all the happnens of current...ly...?

OH!  and if I wanna know who's all going to the fireworks on Wednesday!

Oh and also...my laptop rattles now...O.o

Ya'll write too many damn journals!!

Or I'm too slow...

Either way, THERE ARE TO MANY DAMN JOURNALS FOR ME TO CHECK!  I've been at it since about 8:30, and its now 11 and I still have about 36 left to go! GRAR!!! And I have 160 deviations to look at..which I'm not complaining about since those are fun and rarely get frustrating.  It's the whole reading thing that bugs me sometimes.  I like reading, but when the subject and plot is constant.  ANd I like the survays I find, which brings me to my next topic (This is why journals are hard for me...to much jumping around...)!  SURVAYS! ANd questions.  I have, at this point in time, about 6 to put up.  But I shall put them in different journals to give ya'll respite.  I'd have 5 but the one I tried to post aft Memorial Day kinda...well I don't know.  It just didn't post.  Which is a bummer since I wrote about the super fun times I had in Kentucky.  But I'll go into detail later...if ever. THat and how nice (or normal?) it is to be graduated. Here's a survay that I just got tonight!

1.If I would get hit by a car inftont of your eyes, what would you do?
2.If you would get hit by a car, what would you tell me to do?
3.If we would get into a fight, would you try to solve it even if you hated me?
4.Have you ever been angry or sad in my presence (via Chat, or messaging)
5.Do you get annoyed of constantly changing oppinions and moods?
6.If you heard I died of suicide, what would be your reaction?
7.What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see that youve got a message from me?
8.If I gave you a bad b-day present, how would you react?
9.If I would belive in something you dont, would you tease me about it and what I belive in?
10.If we were trapped in an elevator and heard that we had only 10-minutes to live, how would you spend it with me?
11.If one of your friends is mean to me, what will you do?
12.If we were a superhero duo, what would be our names?
13.How many times did you curse at me, while doing this?
14.Will you repost this for me so I can fill this for you?


Okay, it's more of a questionare, who cares?  Just answere the questions!  

*Muyah* toodles!
