we finally sold the old house!! this is such a load off hahaha

for someone at [ profile] supercharitygo.

it looked better before i colored it hahaha since when did i get so bad at coloring things



i have so many wips it's crazy

and [ profile] dia_aren_marie tagged me! i think i'm supposed to do this on dA, but nobody watches my dA.

1. Post these rules
2. Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag backs

1. i like listening to death metal when i wake up to get me PUMPED for the day
also works for when i have to go do something that makes me nervous. seriously try it!!!

2. i can't think of a lot of things i'm too afraid to do (and a lot of it's kind of stupid in comparison haha. WANT TO GO SKYDIVING SOMEDAY but asking someone for a date sounds too scary ;_;)

3. i'm left-handed and also have green eyes which i didn't even know green was rare until a little while ago. ACCORDING TO QUIZILLA THIS MEANS I AM SUPER HORNY ALL THE TIME FOREVER

4. i love climbing things! i did that ALL THE TIME when i was younger; i climbed trees, climbed cars, climbed the big mountain of stuffed animals in the disney store (people gathered around and at the time i thought it was because people were admiring how cool i was and not because they were going LOOK AT THAT BAD KID or whatever), climbed rock walls (once i went into a rock-climbing class and easily climbed to the very top without a harness and then just went back down and left NOBODY QUESTIONED IT OR ANYTHING), raced up/down mountains while leaving my family behind (AT LEAST TWICE once when i was like three or something), and pretty much just liked climbing onto every ledge ever. i think i even climbed onto the roof of our old house once. i still like climbing things, though; even when i go on walks, i like walking on the curb just for that little extra height.
it's weird because i'm afraid of heights. or maybe i'm just afraid of falling, haha.

5. when i was a kid i seriously believed that, if i wanted it hard enough, i could magically start flying when i jumped off a ledge
i believed i could fly
i spent a lot of my childhood jumping off the walls in our house, going OMG I ALMOST HAD IT THAT TIME, then climbing back up and jumping off again

6. just as long as i'm talking about childhood-- i've been swearing since i was a baby. my sister said i called her a "fucking bitch" (which i didn't, she just wanted to get me in trouble), and i just latched onto that and never stopped. when i was a baby i used to swear in an italian accent for some reason, too, so i was just constantly going around going AHH, FUCK-A DE BITCH
i still do that, you can't take me anywhere

7. honestly, i'm not a very good student or role model. i procrastinate on everything until the last second, halfass stuff, hardly study, and i never really learned latin or spanish because i'd just skip class so much that my teachers pretty much forgot i was supposed to be there. i guess i do get A's and B's somehow though (even though i hated that college prep school, i'm still kind of proud that i made straight-A's despite nnnot really studying much at all for at least a year beforehand and also half-assing all my work, eheh. for the record, i do plan on trying harder for college).

8. i plan on changing my irl name before i go to college. i've ALWAYS hated my real name, even as a little kid. whenever anyone asked for it i'd just sort of look down and whisper it because it sucks and i hate it omg

9. i am apparently a natural gambler. i beat everyone--including my grandpa, who is the big gambling guy in the family--at poker when i was a little toddler or something. i also helped my mom gamble when i was 13 and she said she did a lot better when i was there, haha. have won at the horse races more than once.
this is part of why i was so pissed that my city made the gambling age 21 instead of 18

10. one time i went around with a fractured wrist for a week before i put it in a cast.

bonus: i used to do snl-inspired bob dole impressions when i was a kid, only i didn't actually know anything about politics back then, so i'd sort of mold the impressions to fit my own knowledge. so it was like BOB DOLE WANTS APPLESAUCE
in retrospect, it's probably funnier that way

hahaha why is this all about swearing and gambling and being a bad student and stuff. i'm such a ~scamp~

i've been trying not to talk about this too much, but... the situation in texas has really gotten a lot worse. both my grandpa and step-grandma have cancer, and now my step-grandma has gotten a staph infection from one of her surgeries. it's so serious that they've had to keep her in the hospital and i think even quarantined, and apparently she only has a 50/50 chance of surviving. she hasn't done chemo yet, and now she CAN'T because it's too dangerous to do when she has this infection.
my grandpa... the doctor said there's a very good chance that they can get all the cancer in surgery, but that's what they said for joanne, so i'm just kinda... waiting for the results. i'm worried about him staying in the lakehouse after his surgery, though, because of the staph; i am really, really hoping that he stays at teresa's house or something until the lakehouse is cleaned up.

anyway, yeah, that's what's been going on over there. we'll just see how it goes, i guess.

edit: oh, god, right, uhh.
please check this out, as a way to triple your donations to the red cross' text donation system for haiti, and please keep an eye on [ profile] help_haiti (dammit the auctioning thing is genius why didn't i think of that). i haven't managed to get in a donation to haiti yet, but it's something i want to do. i've been debating whether or not i ought to start up [ profile] supercharitygo again; i kind of feel like starting it up so frequently is just going to thin the donations out, as well as turn people off of the whole idea. april seems like a long time to wait, though.
