i'm gonna do that 30-day writing meme, except i don't actually want to do this for 30 days, so i'm just gonna answer it all at once.

this is insanely tl;dr and probably won't make a lot of sense (i swear to god i'm going to talk about my characters someday) )

without delving too deeply on a public entry, i just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness, understanding, and support. i expected the best out of you guys and i got it, and i think the fact that we're entering a day and age where people like me can actually DO that is something that's really amazing. you guys give me hope for the future. ♥ thanks.

in other news, last call for those dumb valentines. i dunno what i'll do for the unclaimed ones. keep 'em? or maybe just send bonus ones to people who requested? hmmm.
man i need to send the claimed ones out though. when did i get so shitty at mailing cards

so i got a new tablet, but it was all buggy so i'm gonna exchange it tomorrow today.
in the meantime, doodles [7] )

i've been plugging this everywhere, but this article on rape is the best i've ever read. it's extremely informative, has a very calm and clear (yet influential) tone, and is completely fair to everybody involved. it's an important article that everyone should read, so i strongly encourage you guys to plug it as well.


do it or i'm gonna feel like a moran
have i done something like this recently? i dunno PROBABLY but just... do it anyway!!

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

can i think of 10 things??? )

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.
backupdump002: (what)
ASK ANYTHING i don't care
i also put a link to it in my profile so you can do it whenever you want. i wanted to put the widget there but it wouldn't show up for some reason.

oh yeah, paid users can send out $10 coupons for paid accounts, soooo who wants one
don't bother sending any to me hahaha i'm gonna just let this run out

since it's getting pretty close to christmas, i'm closing off the request post. thanks, guys! i'll work on all that. if it's a little late or something then i apologize; been all down, really hard to concentrate on anything worthwhile. i'll get them to you eventually, though.
[ profile] roaring_softly, i sent your card on the... 11th? did it get there

hey, everyone still needs to comment on the holiday post! also, i still need addresses from everyone.

this makes me laugh harder than it probably ought to

question answering/asking meme and a lyric-guessing meme )

-drove for the first time a few days ago. a couple years late, but whatever. it was easy. need to take driver's ed.
hahaha i was perfectly calm the whole time, but mom was all freaked out (at least during the start). it probably didn't help that my reaction to making mistakes was just WHOOPS HAHAHA THAT WAS KINDA COOL
-john had his 31st birthday. looking forward to properly celebrating when he and sherah come up for thanksgiving!
-turns out that my step-grandma's breast cancer is worse than they thought, so she'll have to get a double-mastectomy. she'll still be fine, as far as anyone can tell, but it's a shame she has to go through all that. i hope she calls off the thanksgiving reunion since she really ought to just rest after that, but she's so stubborn. i dunno. we'll see.
-mom: they're not showing "this is it" anymore... i guess now it's "that was that."
-saw "men who stare at goats." it was hilarious and fun, and i kept thinking of psychonauts the whole time.

so, i've decided to try and start doing weekly art posts. i'm thinking that it'll (maybe??) encourage me to draw more, and will also help me keep tabs on my ART RIVALS that i eternally battle. watch as i forget about this whole thing immediately

-visiting [ profile] wishwashing (and her new kitten)! funny people was weirdly depressing but i'm not an adam sandler fan so i managed just fine but it had MANY LAUGHS as well, so good stuff. i meant to bring no more heroes for our video gamery, but wound up leaving the disc in the wii at home, hahaha. ran all over the place in half-life, instead.
i loved the fact that all the other birthday cards people gave her were really nice and had butterflies and puppies or whatever, while the one i gave was just an old guy in a thong

the stage shot fireworks during "live and let die," which scared the crap out of me, oh god. i love it when he does that song, though, because he just looks like this complete madman on the piano. that's kind of a lame video, though. HE ROCKED OUT A LOT MORE AT OURS, HE STOOD UP
he's such a ham, haha. he also wore a light pink shirt and white suspenders under his jacket which i thought was hilarious for some reason (everyone wooed when he took his jacket off and he was just like YEP THAT'S THE BIG COSTUME CHANGE FOR THE SHOW)
so cool. i want to give him a hug, he's so charming.

-apparently david sedaris is coming back here, and is going to do a performance thing rather than a book-signing. need to get tickets!

On second thought, maybe it's better to just let the drive run its course and see how it goes, and then let people make suggestions on the scheduling once it's DONE, rather than just change everything up in the middle of it. That seems awkward. I'm so awkward.

I keep feeling like I need to update this, but I don't really have anything to talk about and I haven't felt like putting together any ~goodies~ like screenshots or music or posters or other things I can use as filler for when I have nothing cool to say. Kinda fell out of drawing for a little while, trying to start that up again. I've had no confidence in my art, ugh. I just finished those catgirl drawings like two weeks ago and liked them then, but I already think they look awful. I need to actually take a real art class someday because I really have no idea what I'm doing, ever.

I could art angst further but no one gives a goshdarn hoot about that, so uhhh doodles lol (there's a posemaniacs in here) )

Oh yeah, I beat God of War a couple days ago! Hahaha, what a ridiculous game.

Why do, like, all the quests on RO have to be for high-leveled people. Speaking of which oh god I have so many screenshots, I need to do a post someday

Edit: Oh yeah, I had a dream the other night that it was the zombie apocalypse, and I just went and got a sandwich at Subway. It was 6 inches and roast beef and it had olives on it. I got some Doritos on the side.

... what.

Wow, I can't believe I'm turning 18 this year. I keep forgetting.

Please keep sending apps to [ profile] supercharitygo! The post is still open, and it really isn't a huge, time-eating commitment or anything since you can work around your schedule and do what you want. Even if you don't want to participate, at least pimp it out. C'moooooon

Speaking of time-eating, I've started playing RO again. There's a new free (but difficult) server called Valkyrie, so I've been playing on that. It's a lot of fun. I'm trying to make a Monk this time, which I've never done before, but it makes sense; I've tried to make BATTLE PRIESTS for as long as I can remember so I can have buffs as well as a kickass character, and it's like... why not just make a Monk...
Anyway, my character is Romano (I wanted to name him "Gene" so I could make stupid God Hand references, but it's taken ;_;), if anyone wants to screw around! LET'S TAKE ON RAGNAROK ONLINE: HARD MODE ~TOGETHER~

A little art, some of it actually finished. )

I'd post all the ridiculous pchat screens Tiger and I have built up, but I don't have any of them prepared and I'm too tired/busy right now fghkjgh

Does Tinypic keep changing languages for anyone else? It was German for a long time, but now it's Spanish for some reason. What the hell.

Man, I need to get around to finishing Psychonauts. I'm trying to fight the cobra guy, but I don't have Confusion, so I've been putting it off a little since I haven't felt like grinding. It's so fun, though. I'm also nearly at the end of God of War, which only gets more hilarious as time goes on. I think I'm gonna start on Shadow of the Colossus after these, and maybe try to get further in Mass Effect (my guy's name is "Ass Shepard"). Still haven't gotten around to finishing Yume Nikki either dfkgjh gotta do that. ACTUALLY OKAY FINE THERE ARE A MILLION GAMES I NEED TO FINISH

Don't forget to keep an eye on the charity post! We still need help setting up.

Some sketches. )

Haha, that's it. I just wanted to bump down the angst post (I'm doing a lot better! Thanks, guys~) and remind people of the charity thing, pretty much.

Internet is being weird suddenly, what

Edit: Oh yeah, everyone has been doing that custom font thing, so I did it too! My real handwriting is a lot messier hahafdkgj but I like it anyway. Download link for anyone who wants it for some reason.

I am going to keep being annoying about this until I hear something from all of you

Something about cutting my hair shorter really emphasizes how much I resemble a stick and it kind of bugs me. Maybe if I keep eating this delicious cheesecake then everything will sort itself out. story of my life ;_;

Uhh, have a handful of doodles, because I need to do more art posts. )

So yeah, my tablet is spazzing out. It's been kind of spazzy for a long time, but I could at least WORK with it. Now it's skipping all over the place and not registering and doing all sorts of annoying things, and I'm not sure if it's fixable or if I have to get a new pen or tablet or what. I'm not about to give up on Christmas gifts either way, though, so don't worry about that.

Internet has been a little temperamental as well. Also, the 360 stopped displaying graphics and may need a new AV cord, though I need to test that out some more. I've also been having random waves of intense angst that like to come out of nowhere and punch me in the face. Then, of course, I still need to do something about Sanitarium. seriously what the hell, why is everything crapping out all of a sudden, do I have bad karma I didn't know about or what

Note to self: Check out Mirror's Edge, it looks awesome.
... also, do some laundry.
backupdump002: (you hear that new kenny winker song)

1. There are 30 questions.
2. Next to each number, write only the name of the person who fits.
3. Answer one question with one name.
4. Don't tell the questions to anyone who isn't doing the meme.

Were you mentioned?! )

So the other night I went to bed and a brown recluse spider came out from behind my pillow and started crawling on my arm.
... t-to tell you the truth, I was more angry than I was scared. I mean, this was the night I came home from visiting my grandpa, and I only got three hours of sleep and had stayed up way later than I should have, and all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and some stupid poisonous spider has to try and ruin everything. Like, what is it trying to prove?! I couldn't even kill it, either, because it startled the crap out of me and ran off before I could grab something. It's like one of those screamers people send around where you think you're trying to find Waldo, and then this scary face pops up and screams, and then you manage to turn off the sound only after it stops screaming because you were too busy being in a fetal position and sobbing. It's like, what the crap.
Of course, then I just told myself that brown recluse spider bites are usually not fatal and just climbed into bed anyway. SLEEP OUTWEIGHS MY FEAR OF DEATH

So I've been trying to draw more lately, since I've kind of fallen into the trap of being like MY ART SUCKS ;_; and then never picking up a pencil. A method that really works well for me is to have one window open with Pose Maniacs and then another open with Maxwell Adams, and then I just copy poses on the Random Pose Viewer on some notebook paper and have the videos going as entertainment. IT MAKES THE TIME FLY I'LL TELL YOU WHAT and it seems like I do better that way rather than playing music or having it silent. Maybe it just puts me in a better mood.



why is my computer being so slooooowwwwww
backupdump002: (louis grin)
SO HEY I just got back from St. Louis. Well, not really "just," I guess, since that was, like... yesterday afternoon. But yeah! BLAH BLAH BLAH )

Anyway, that's enough of that. To make this post a bit more worthwhile, how aboutAWWWWWWWWW
Sorry, distracted. HOW ABOUT SOME DRAWINGS? Ever since I made Eccentricity there hasn't been much of a point to posting them here, since I put everything I draw up there. Lately, though, I've been thinking that I kind of miss doing art posts in this journal, especially since not everyone looks at Eccentricity. So what I've decided is that I'm going to start posting things here FIRST, and THEN move them to Eccentricity, so that way, Eccentricity will be more of an archive-y site, which is what it was intended to be in the first place. :D Took me long enough to figure that out

You should look at the website for stuff I did before these, by the way.
Aaaaaarrrrrtttt )

Aaaaand yup. Feel free to critique any of these, by the way!

On a side note, Apollo Justice got here sometime while we were gone! And I even got the keychain! :D And for some reason, I have yet to take the game out of the plastic wrap. I must fix this immediately.
backupdump002: (Default)
Merry Christmas! I was going to have this posted yesterday, but the freaking Internet on Sarah and I's computers quit working. It'll come on for like 5 minutes or so and cut out, then just do that for a while until it stops completely (we might need a new router, I dunno). So with that and being busy with Christmas and visiting with John and everything, I just haven't really had a chance. Sorry about that.

Oh yeah, and for those curious, those numbers I had you pick are actually songs on my playlist! So... yeah. However, because of the aforementioned Internet problems, I haven't been able to upload all of the songs. I have a .txt file on my computer with links to MOST of them (still have 20-something to go), but since I'm having to use the downstairs computer right now to even post this... well... yeah. I'm just going to post pictures for now just so this will be on time and everything, but I'm going to have to make a separate post for music. Sorry, guys :<

Anyway, let me just say that none of these are as detailed or as well-done as I would like them to be, and if I had the time, I would've gone a lot crazier with these. I did my best, though, and really, I'm pretty okay with how all of these turned out. Hopefully you guys will like 'em!


And there you have it! :D I HOPE EVERYONE LIKES THEIR STUFF because if you don't then too bad 'cause i'm not redoing it ya punks

Merry Christmas to everyone, and if I don't get around to making an entry on New Year's, then happy New Year as well! I'll probably make a post around then, though, mainly 'cause I just wanna babble about visiting and the presents I got and that sorta thing. blah blah blah

Woooooo I'm looking forward to taking a bit of a break, I tell ya. I can already tell '08 is going to be a busy year for me. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE A GOOD SORT OF BUSY, THOUGH

Mmm, pie.
