Today's been an okay day. uwu At work, I have to review companies' financial information, and put together financial statements. I really enjoy starting this process, and ending it, but I hate the middle part lol. I really enjoy having a whole bunch of stuff to do, all these files and spreadsheets to look at and verify and analyze.. but after a while I finish doing everything that works out well and that I know how to do, and I end up with the rest of the work that I don't know how to proceed, have insufficient information and need to contact the client, or something went wrong in an analysis, etc. That's the part I don't like. And that's the part I've been stuck on this entire week.

Finally though, today I was able to move past that phase into the final part that I enjoy a lot, which is putting together the financial statements themselves and cross-referencing all of the numbers to the review files.
Boss also asked me to come in extra hours next week, which is great and terrible.. more hours means more money, but I already have a lot to do for school already. I have a tax exam on Monday, an accounting exam on Wednesday, a tax project to finish by the 12th, a negotiation paper to write by the 12th..

I dunno. Laying it out like that, it doesn't sound like I have too much to do, or at least that it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I always feel so burnt out when I come home these days. I just get home and feel like going straight to bed. My alternatives are to go work on homework, or feel guilty that I'm not using my free time to work on commissions, or talk to people who inevitably vent to me and I end up stressing myself out about that too.

Anyway! I beat Contact (DS game) recently and wow the ending was baffling and rather.. unsatisfying? I don't know if there's some sort of post-game extra storyline stuff or something.. I was reading this walkthrough at one point and read their description of the ship decal, an item of sorts that lets you warp back to your base, but that it "doesn't work from certain rooms and locations, usually boss rooms and weird locations where you're not in the, ah... real world. >_>" And that comment got me really interested! I was excited at the idea that I'd be able to explore some weird space dimensions or something later on in the game! I got especially excited when there was a boss battle where I got transported inside this weird-ass alternate dimension space pyramid that the antagonists tried to summon and command but they got stuck inside too.

Unfortunately that segment only lasted that one boss battle. You can't even go back in it ever again after you beat the boss there. So, rather than that, I think the "not real world" they meant was when you get sent inside a couple arcade games. Which sounds like it could be interesting too but it wasn't that great. The "racing" game is just a couple screens where you run around a track and fight some car monsters at the end. The RPG game is just a couple screens of forced sidescrolling and bad graphics.

The music in Contact is really great though. :B I love Ft. Eagle's theme so much.

Things have been going pretty well this week, emotionally! Physically not so much. I've started keeping a log of my headaches/nausea again because I'm really tired of getting headaches pretty much daily and not knowing WHY. There's got to be something that contributes to it, at least a little.. Today was a quadruple whammy with headache, nausea, feverish body temp, and menstrual cramps. I was so fucking uncomfortable I just couldn't focus enough to do my homework that was due midnight. I don't care though, I figured out I can skip a week of discussion posts and still be in the clear. I'll have to be on top of them from now on though, which shouldn't be a problem.

I am pretty happy though!! Happy with my friends, happy with my girlfriend, happy with all my followers on all the sites I go to.. u//u I'm just.. really happy with everything right now. I've been drawing anthros again, playing video games a little more often.. and stuff.. ahh lol I am too tired to write anything further

So, let's see.
First day of class? Canceled.
Second day of class? Professor e-mails all of us saying she'll be late.
Reads her lecture notes off of her paper really rather quickly, too quickly for me to type even just the relevant information and I type fucking 80-90 wpm.
Says she'll e-mail the class with information regarding the online homework service we need to purchase access to. No e-mail yet.
Says we have online discussion assignments every Wednesday, "open from 12am to 11:59pm." Says she'll post an example of what she expects to see. It's 5pm and there are no posts whatsoever, example or otherwise.

Greaaaat class so far.
The only things keeping me from outright dropping is that we don't meet in class on Wednesdays and the midterm/final are both open-book and online.

Edit: o-oh. She was giving us a break this week and not assigning discussion homework. Ok. uh. cool then.

Right right, I tell myself to post here more and then forget about it for a full week again.
Hmmm, so what's been going on lately..

Work
Well, at work things have been going pretty nicely~ Boss told me we'd all have a holiday lunch on the 8th! Looking forward to that very much. :D

School
School's been school, as it always is. Thank fuck I only have two weeks left. Just counting down the days... sigh.
But in that two weeks, I still need to
  • contribute to group management report due the 30th
  • write individual management report due the 5th
  • contribute to and participate in the management presentation due the 7th
  • study for history exam the 30th
  • start and finish tax return due the 7th
  • start and finish current article analysis for information systems due the 8th
  • continue working on information systems group project due the 8th
  • contribute to information systems memo report due the 8th
  • final tax accounting exam on the 30th
  • final information systems exam on the 6th
  • final management exam on the 5th
;A; so much to do. so little time.
of course I am making full use of my productivity and drawing as much porn as I fucking can diligently studying and completing assignments.

Tumblr
Tumblr, man, I don't even need to say anything, it's the light of my day every single day.x )
I was talking with eyecandyburns the other day, she was the one to give me the Runaways fic and get me into Runawaystuck, and she showed me her WIPs and drew me a nsfw Runawaystuck comic!! ;v; aaah I still love it so much, god it's hot! I'd show it off and post it all over the place but she said she wasn't going to post it on her Tumblr so I will respect that she probably wouldn't want me to spam it everywhere. even though I love it a lot.
It's so amusing that I've been getting a lot of people interested in Runawaystuck with my art!! I mean shit, my stuff's even getting passed around on /y/ ;w; Oh!! and I also went to /u/ the other day and my art was in the Homestuck thread there too hafsjdksfkl FUCK THE INTERNET JUST WANTS TO MAKE ME EXPLODE FROM HAPPINESS THESE PAST COUPLE MONTHS

Collecting my thoughts about classes.

I am probably going to get an A in management. No need to worry there.

Probably going to get a B in history. Gotten an 80 and a 74 on exams so far, two exams left.. but I can also retake one. 15% homework/quiz grade cushions a bit so I'm fairly certain about a B.

Tax. Fuck tax. Fuck this class. Fuck fuck fuck. There's no way I'm getting any higher than a C. And that is just so fucking pitiful to say/think about. Because it's a fucking open note/open book class. UGH. HOW AM I FAILING TESTS IN THIS FUCKING CLASS.

Information systems is on the cusp of B or C. Probably going to end up a C.

And---! Hooray, none of this matters. The only goal I have for the rest of my time at this university is to keep my scholarship, which needs a 3.0 overall GPA to sustain.. and seems to be based off of all my classes except for my first year. <_<; Excluding that, then, gives me a 3.38 GPA (otherwise, I have an actual GPA of 3.65). If I get an A, B, and 2 C's, then I'll end up with a 3.24 HOPE GPA after this semester. Woo.

Hell yes I just calculated the grades I need for the rest of my degree and things are looking gooood. Awesooomeee.

I always have to give myself a pep talk like this whenever I fail a test LOL. Yeah I got a 67 on my tax test so I freaked out again.
kelaruj: (Default)
Oooohhhhhhhhh myyyyyyyyy goddddddddddddd
Haven't posted here in a while and I feel annoying on Twitter so gonna post here.

School
Before going into happy stuff, school. School's just been.. flying by. I haven't been getting *good* grades but I guess I can't complain, my friend irl was barely getting D's in his classes and told me he's probably just gonna fail out of the school.. But yeah I've taken at least one test in all my classes so far, 85% in information systems accounting, 89% in tax accounting, 80% in history, and 90% in management. I promised myself I'd get a french silk pie for myself (my favorite pie ever that I haven't had since I was a kid cause I thought they discontinued it but recently found a retailer that had them) when I got my first A, but a 90%.. I barely consider that an A, and it was even curved too.. @_@ So I'll wait for the next set of tests to hopefully meet my goal.
I still constantly contemplate about what am I doing with my life? If I graduate with a 3.2 or something, is it really that bad? Do I really care? My coworker and some classmates have asked me if I was planning on working for one of The Big Four accounting firms. Fuck no! I just want to live comfortably in a small/medium-size firm or have my own CPA practice somewhere. As long as I can afford food and house and transportation, I don't want many luxuries. I'm not the sort of person who will spend $50k on a new car. I'm not the sort of person who will go out to eat every weekend to places that cost $30 per meal.  I'm not the sort of person who buys $50 jeans and $100 shirts. I don't need six-figures to live off of. I don't need a luxurious job at The Big Four. I don't need a 4.0. I'm doing just fine. With the goals I have and the path I'm taking? I'd say I'm doing pretty well. If I had no job experience, maybe having a ~3.0 average would make things difficult. But no! I will have plenty of relevant work experience by the time I graduate, by the time I get my CPA! I am doing quite well for myself, I would say!

And so, that is a longwinded, roundabout way to reassure myself that I can spend my free time drawing porn and not studying/doing homework and not worry about it. :B

Work
As for work! Work is going well. We've been getting some new computers in, which is so very wonderful. It takes literally about 15 minutes to start up the computer I currently work on. It takes probably one minute for the new computers, maybe less. And I was allowed to set them all up~ <3
I'm so happy I'm finally getting the hang of things too now. Boss will give me a bunch of spreadsheets and I actually know where they all go and what the relevant information is~!

Art + Homestuck + Tumblr
AND NOW FOR THE HOLYSHITOHMYGODWHATISGOINGON STUFF
Tumblr?? WHAT THE FUCK HAHAHAH I went to bed with ~95 watchers (which is amazing in itself and I wanted to do a thank you picture for 100) and I currently have 167 169 171??!?!"? (IT KEEPS GOING UP EVERY TIME I REFRESH HOLY FUCK)
I HAVE A POST WITH 300 FUCKING NOTES OH MY GOD
OH MY GOD
JUST
OHMYGOD
WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON I KEEP MISSPELLING EVERY OTHER WORD RIGHT NOW
I could keep going but that is the gist of my feelings at the moment. Just.. so.. blown away @_@ holy hell
There is one thing I am mad about though. Tumblr isn't e-mailing me about my new watchers or asks or reblogs!! I want to keep track of all of this dammit!! I don't like having 300+ notifications (/hyperventilate) missing. :[ I can't keep track via my dashboard either because by the time I refresh, all the previous notifications get knocked off ;___; ;;;;;; And so, the only way to keep track, is to go to the post itself's note list, but that doesn't provide a direct link to the reblogs, just the user who reblogged it... so it takes a lot longer to go through.. :<

Uuuuugh this past week has been awesome (due to Homestuck) and terrible (STRESS!!).

Work
Things have been alright at work. Finishing up some financial statements that I've been working on for weeks. XD; Got a couple new computers in, but we can't use them yet because the server/network hasn't been set up yet and they don't have any of the accounting programs we use yet. It'll be nice when I can start up a program and it doesn't take 3 minutes to load. >_>

School
Oh, god. It was not a good idea to marathon through Homestuck when I have 3 tests to prepare for. Information systems test last Thursday, tax accounting tomorrow, history next Wednesday. I'll be surprised if I get a B on the IS test, hoping for a C, at least... sigh.. Tax test tomorrow is open book/open note so I shouldn't be worrying this much, but I'm still freaking out a bit.. >_< /deep breaths!
Today I have to drive 20 miles downtown to meet with my management project team. 20 miles... :/ At 7pm... Not only is it far away, and I've never driven here before so it's unfamiliar territory, but I have to drive there DURING RUSH HOUR, and it'll be dark outside!! AND it's at a restaurant and they're going to pick on me for not ordering anything but I can't fucking afford it. This is going to be so nervewracking. I really hope nothing goes wrong. I don't even know if I'm going to be able to contribute anything. Not that it matters much- we're just putting together a stupid Powerpoint with some guidelines for deadlines this semester and stuff like that.

Homestuck + Hetalia
Anyway, onto more positive things. Kind of. lol. I didn't entirely expect to go from 'love Hetalia, hate Homestuck' to 'disinterested in Hetalia, love Homestuck' but that's what happened. And right after I got into the USUK calendar too, ahahah. :D;;; Of course I'll still do my best, it's not like I'm all "eww USUK" after loving it for a couple years, but as for personal, casual doodling, I'll be shifting pretty much completely over to Homestuck. It's just new and exciting y'know? It's been fun being in the Hetalia fandom for so long, but it feels like it's been so long since the last interesting canon update. In comparison, Homestuck updates like crazy. XD I'm sure "10 pages a week" is an understatement.
Why'd I even start to read it? When chim and Aly and I were webcamming last week, Aly talking about it was the final push. But even before that, I was caving ever so slightly in response to seeing some of my favorite artists drawing fanart for it, and Tae sending me a link to a Homestuck song too, it all made the decision to go for it much easier. And boy am I glad for that. Amazing story, amazing characters, amazing method of storytelling in the first place, amazing animation, amazing music, hilarious, canon homosexuality, etc. XDD

School
Ahaha I am really bad at dealing with pushy strangers.. In my information systems class, we have a 'group' project with groups of 2, and though we haven't signed up yet, people have been partnering up with others in preparation. Today a guy came up to me to ask if I was good with computers, but in doing so leaned really close to me and had his hand on my shoulder. EXTREMELY uncomfortable. In the end I claimed I wasn't that great with computers so he'd leave me alone, but he still sat next to me in class and kept leaning next to me and commenting about what I was doing on my computer. I really hope I don't end up paired with him. :[ Ugh.

Misc
menstruation talk ahoy )

Misc
Lately I haven't been doing well. Everything I eat makes me ill in some way. Everything. >_< This has been happening for the past few days, every day. I feel weak but I can't eat to recover well enough because I have no appetite, because everything makes me sick.. Admittedly I have been having a few iffy things like seafood and spicy thai food and gas station snacks, but even things like pasta or cereal have been upsetting my stomach too. :/
I was talking to my coworker for a long time today, we generally take lunch at noon, but we were wrapped up in conversation for hours on end. After a while her stomach growled and laughed about being hungry. I've always thought it was weird to take a stomach growl as an indication of hunger, since mine only does so when I'm seriously ill. XD; The way my body likes to alert me that it's time to eat is to make me nauseous and lightheaded.
But anyway, off of the food tangent.

School
Classes started yesterday.
History is going to be AWESOME. And that's speaking as someone who HATES history. The professor is funny and entertaining and there are also no papers/essays whatsoever. *so happy*
Management seems that it will be a little tough, but worth it, if I try hard. The professor is a hot Italian very sweet and I will have no problem paying attention to the lecture at least /shot
Tax accounting is something I will enjoy learning very much but the professor is starting out a tad dull. Either way, it is basically a law class masquerading as accounting, and I do enjoy law very much, even if it is difficult. This class will also help me very much in my job! Very glad to be taking this tax class in the fall, since next spring I will have to help prepare tax returns at work.
Accounting information systems, I'm not sure how to gauge at this point. I'm certain I will enjoy it on a simple level of "hey I can apply this to work" but the topic is bland. It seems to be a class entirely about ethics, with a side project of filling in a company's information on some accounting software.

Misc
I really wanted to try the everyman sleep cycle because I'm a sucker for unconventional but better ways of doing things, like Dvorak. But I don't think I will, after all.. I was all gung-ho about it on Twitter today but in the end my schedule is a bit tight and I'm not entirely keen on sleeping at work or in my car, both of which I would have to do (and miss out on boss inviting me to lunch). I did take a nap today and although I read that it's a bitch to adjust at first, I woke up with a strong headache. I was expecting drowsiness, not headache... Especially tied with what I said earlier about my body not digesting food well lately, I don't think this is the best period in my life to try polyphasic sleep. :< One guy who was successful with an uberman schedule was able to do so because he worked from home. I have school and work away from home. Biiiig detriment.

The nap was interesting though, lol. I'd read a lot of polyphasic sleep blogs today and one person had mentioned that at one point, when they were going to take their 20 minute nap, they set their alarms and laid down and what felt like a second later, their alarms were going off. I kind of experienced that today too, such an odd sensation, laying in bed waiting to fall asleep and then the alarm went off. I felt alert and woke up immediately, but as I said, I also had a bad headache, which is something I do NOT want to deal with (even if it is only temporary during adjustment) right now.

Art
Tumblr is blowing my mind these past couple days. 75 notes!! I'm almost certain that's more notes than I'd ever gotten collectively on my first account before I deleted it. I've always felt lucky to have 3 notes, maybe even 5+ if people *really* like it. So 75 is just.. I don't even understand. And THIS! It had like 50 notes within half an hour of being posted!!? And all of this while I have 36 followers! I think I had more than that on my first account, yet had gotten much less notes! XDD Both pics I'd posted on my previous account anyway, and at MOST each had probably gotten around 10-15 notes. So indeed, I'm fairly certain I have chim and Dunya and Mai and all the other popular artists who reblogged my art/recommended to follow me to thank for all of this XD

Work
I was talking to my coworker for a long time today because neither of us had anything to do lol. Boss wasn't there today. But yeah, we talked a looot about pets and food and relationships and stuff. Relationships. The topic I kind of dread, because I am CERTAIN I will inadvertently say something that gives my homosexuality away. And indeed, coworker said that it's very hard to be in a relationship and in school at the same time, so I commented that I agreed, I was with somebody and we were both busy all the time with work and SHE was working two jobs as well and I didn't have a car. SHE! I fucking said "she"! T_T Well.. if she noticed, she didn't comment on it, and didn't act awkward afterward or anything, so I hope she either doesn't mind or didn't hear me...

I'm out among friends and everything, but work and school are different.. At work, there is a risk of being fired, or at the very least permanently damaging the relationship with the boss and/or coworkers and become unable to use them for references.. At school I'm more open but I keep my mouth shut when I'm not at our school's LGBT club or someone isn't directly asking me about it. You never know how people will react. Someone can be the sweetest person, so accepting and friendly, but when homosexuality is brought up, they become the most heartless, unforgiving bitch (speaking from experience..). And I just can't handle that sort of reaction if it were to come up at a workplace.

New art journal! Will be my most active art place now.

School's being annoying. In order to take any 4000-level courses (basically, the only ones I have left to take :| ) I have to be admitted in the business college inside the college I'm already in. I thought I could request an override to at least be able to register for them while I submitted my application in summer semester... but they were all denied. T_T Can't fucking wait to get in this thing so I don't have to fuck with overrides all the time anymore. I've completed all the requirements to get in other than meeting with an advisor and paying the exorbitant application fee..
So yeah, long story short the schedule I planned for fall is fucked and I'm not sure what I'll end up with because I'll have to register late.
I have 6 non-4000-level classes left (excluding this summer), 10 4000-level.. only 16 classes left until I graduate~~ Though maybe 17 because I REALLY want to take industrial-organizational psychology before I graduate even though it has nothing to do with my major. ;_;

Summer semester starts next week.. :> I only have two classes but they're both 2.75 hours long. Finance is 5pm-7:45, accounting is 8-10:45, Tuesdays and Thursdays. I expect to get pretty far in Trickster this summer.. lol. That's how I got through music and law last year, except law was more around 3.5 hours. x_x Will probably be on pchat too if anyone else is, since I'll be bored to tears.

 It's still so hard to type.. =w= Making more mistakes but typing slightly faster.. balances out as usual since I spend gained time correcting errors. Found a program called autohotkey that lets me perform QWERTY hotkeys but still type in Dvorak~ It's very helpful. I didn't like typing ctrl+z (would be the /? key in QWERTY), c (I), v (.>), etc. with my right hand.. since I draw with my right hand & perform hotkeys with my left. But now that isn't a problem~
I had to type on another person's keyboard yesterday and got a bit flustered that I couldn't type my NAME correctly. XDD I've already gotten very used to typing the home keys on Dvorak.. which contains "th" (I really enjoy typing anything with "th" in the word now ^q^ "that" and "the" are my fav words lol) so when I tried typing "Samantha" it came out as "Samalkja" >w>;;;
 
School is almost over~ 8 more days~ (over 4 weeks though) Not much left to do other than exams and present marketing project.

Edit: Just measured, typed 23wpm on a test. General speed is probably more around 17-20 since they used simple words on that test. Better than 11wpm when I started a few days ago. :D

lol oh wow! How about that! I actually fulfilled all of my New Years Resolutions from last year!
http://kelaruj.dreamwidth.org/47431.html 
Got a job, moved out, got a car~ ^^ I did commissions for the first time as well.

I'm surprised I actually made resolutions though, it's always been a little tradition of mine to not make resolutions and just reflect back on the past year and the great points about it. I prefer appreciating the good of what happened rather than putting a negative spin on seeing what I did wrong and how to improve. So, let's see...

I graduated high school this year as valedictorian. :D That was pretty awesome.
Though I left my only friend at the time early this year, I've reconnected with my best friend since middle school (and is now my housemate), and have made many new awesome friends through pchat!
I orgasmed for the first time ^q^
Surpassed 1000 watches on FA~
Yet again drew more pictures than last year. I could've sworn this year I wasn't going to do nearly as many drawings, since I had quit doing Livestreams, but then pchat came along... XD
And of course, moved out, got a car, got a job.

I'm sure there's much more than that but those are the high points I can think of. :D 2010 was fucking AWESOME. And 2011 will be even awesomer.
kelaruj: (Default)
Yay done with school! I've got two guaranteed A's and one B.. not sure about my other two classes. Pretty sure it'll be another A and a B though. Two B's.. I haven't gotten a B since middle school. Oh well. I had a 4.0 in high school, valedictorian. That's impressive enough. I don't need a 4.0 in college too. ... >.> sigh. I'm not really upset, just.. it's just weird. I've taken school so seriously the previous four years, and then this past semester things just slipped. Planning on redeeming myself next semester and getting all A's again.

Planning on treating this weekend as my winter break and then I'll go all gung-ho on applying to jobs again on Monday. I already tried to make changes to some online applications today and they wouldn't let me. o_o;; It's.. kind of important. Being available for three days a week, changed to being available 24/7.. that's a pretty significant thing I need to be able to update. But, oh well, I'll just have to go out and apply to some places in person rather than online.

Thanks to textbook buyback, I've gotten a bit of extra funds to help me through the month.. I had two books, one of which Amazon.com buyback wasn't accepting, but they were accepting trade-ins for the other. I went to college to check prices there, and for some reason they were buying back the book Amazon.com wasn't, and weren't accepting the book that Amazon.com was. ...works for me!
So yeah.. with that, I refunded my commissioners. As much as I need the money, I can't fucking stand commissions anymore. I hate doing them so much. I'll be fine with them for a while, and then it'll be a drag but I can still get through them, and then it just develops into this utter hatred toward the idea of doing commissions and I cannot bring myself to even begin them anymore. But, now with those off of my mind, I might be able to draw my furry OCs more often without feeling incredibly guilty (for putting off commissions), and may try to post on FA more often.

Though.. I do need to devote my time at the moment to my secret santa assignment.. hmm. Will probably spend tomorrow working on it a while, at least before the pchat fills up. I've got most of it written out, and probably half of the non-porn part sketched.

I keep dreaming about weird shit and then I try to remember it aaand five minutes after I wake up it's like, all gone. I do remember reminding myself that I had dreamed about sapphire and Maiyeng and chim in pchat (AGAIN) but I can't remember what we were doing/drawing other than that.. we were just.. in the pchat.
I swear, with how obsessed I was(/am) over Monster Hunter, the fact that I am so much more obsessed with Hetalia and the pchat that I KEEP DREAMING ABOUT THEM is kind of impressive. I think I dreamed about MH a couple times though. Just not nearly as much as Hetalia. My god.

Speaking of MH, I'm kind of getting into it again, ahahaha. <w< I meant to go play Freedom Unite again a few days ago but I totally forgot that I had given back my brother's PSP battery to him. I did play a quest or two but trying to play games on a pandora battery just sucks. I use sleep mode too much to get used to that. I don't regret making a pandora out of mine though. Don't regret it one bit. But I did order a new battery and got it in so quickly, man I love Amazon (and my brother's Amazon Prime that I get to leech off of despite not living with him anymore eheheh). but omg. fuck diablos, man. 6000 HP? I don't think so. What with him running all over the fucking map and digging constantly, not only was I like five minutes away from timing out, but FUCKING GENPREY KEPT PARALYZING ME AND DIABLOS KEPT USING THE OPPORTUNITY TO DIG and I died for the 3rd time anyway. He still had like 2000 HP. I need better weapons. Or, yknow, just need to stop dying. That would help. >_>
But slkdfjsdl other than diablos pwning me I still love this game so much. Tigrex is so fun to fight. And Rathian. And everything other than Diablos and Plesioth. :D

I totally need to stop cooking new things without recipes. I tried to cook homemade soup AGAIN without consulting a recipe and wow. I took one bite and gagged. >.< Going over to my parents again soon and I'm going to ask them to show me how to make soup properly ugh x_x That was my second attempt at homemade soup (1st crab, 2nd spinach) and they both sucked.. so much..

 Only seven days of school leeeft (well, 10 including exam days). Feelin good about my grades. Definitely will get an A in English, macroecon, and BISM, but I need to study hard for accounting and statistics.

I've been getting used to driving more these past few months, I'm actually starting to enjoy driving. Kind of. Okay, maybe that's a stretch. But still. I enjoy driving when no one is behind me. People tail me like hell.. not much of a surprise, since I actually drive the speed limit *gasp* blasphemy! everyone knows people are supposed to drive 10 above the speed limit! >_> Going 34 in a 35 is impeding traffic! rar rar rar honk honk tail tail!
I can't wait for the day someone speeds to pass me and a cop pulls them over.. HAHA WISHFUL THINKING that's never going to happen. I find it more likely that someone's going to run into me from behind from following too closely. Now THAT is going to happen one day, most definitely. I swear, some of these people drive not half a foot away from my car. It's fuckin scary.
I have never met anyone, IRL or online, who drives like I do. D: Everyone is so insanely impatient once they get into a car. but eh. I can bitch about this for days. *shuts up*

Why do I keep trying to use FA's search for anything other than looking up my own art.. lol.. Have to draw a palm tree for my commission and I thought I'd see how some artists interpret how to draw them, and lo and behold I find a pic of a furry transforming into a palm tree. Not that I should be surprised. And a fuck ton of sex on/near palm trees but eh. The transforming one(s) made me lol.
And a picture of a unicorn near a palm tree and cliff with an erection pissing rainbows onto dolphins in the water. In a sunset. Yep.
And an anthropomorphic coconut tree.
..that's FA for ya.

Just about one more month of school left this semester, plus one week or two. :D Signin up for spring classes next week.
Planned out a schedule I'd love to have but of course something will doubtlessly go wrong and I'll have to scramble around finding alternatives. But, if this works out, I'll have class Mondays and Wednesdays 12:30pm-7:45pm, which is a lot nicer than my schedule this semester. I planned my schedule around five classes but I'm only going to take four, so hopefully only one class will not work out when I sign up, so everything will be cool in the end.

It... won't be a fun semester.. but the schedule timing-wise is good.. >w>;; BISM, marketing, history, econ, and an accounting class.. I hate them all except for accounting. If only good law classes were available this next semester..

Aaanyway time to go finish the lineart of my commission since I promised myself some ice cream after I finish. :DD Motivationnn~
Edit: ffffff two hours later and I'm still not completely done with the lineart, but pretty close to being done. This has taken like, what, four hours so far? And I have to shade and color it too, which will likely take.. another four-five hours. Hooray for earning about $3/hour.
BUT OH WELL ICE CREAM TIME :D yay

Yaaay today's turning out much better than yesterday. :D
Felt like checking my school's website when I woke up (cause I didn't want a repeat of yesterday- just wanted to check on the off chance of a class cancellation) and was greeted with a "new grade" notification instead. Took an English exam a week or two ago.. pages of essays and longwinded "short answer" questions.. I felt okay about it but idk how she grades so I didn't know how it would turn out. And apparently I got a 97 on it yaaayyyy :D
Went to my BISM class and it was boring as always so I worked on my assignment instead and kinda.. almost finished it lol. I thought it would take me all day to do. And he also told us that we don't have class on Tuesday, hallelujah. That class needs to get canceled more often. <w< Now I don't have to wake up until 4pm instead of 8am, haha.

I still need to work on my 2010 wolf drawing thing.. I'm not really liking how it's turning out, but I might as well finish it soon since I kinda should've finished it around the end of September, although I don't have a strict deadline for it or anything.

Ah, I finally beat the RPG mode in Taiko no Tatsujin Dororon, SO MUCH FUN. Oh god it's so awesome "fighting" enemies by playing a rhythm game. I even love the grinding. XD Before I played the RPG I was pretty disappointed in the song choice in this particular game since I could easily full combo all of the songs with a little practice (...except one). But now that I've unlocked a lot of songs through the RPG.. uh.. yeah there are a lot more very difficult ones lol. So glad to see a 2000 song.. I was afraid they didn't have one in this game for some reason. >.>;;

Edit: ... XD I love how I follow Takamin123 on Twitter to get news about the pchat... and he/she just talks about how tasty mayonnaise and cabbage is.

Life is too awesome.. too awesome.

This week, my English class isn't meeting; she gives us the week before a test free for studying. That'd leave only my accounting class on Mondays & Wednesdays instead of two classes. And today, JUST when I was closing everything out to shut down my computer to leave for accounting, I get an e-mail.. from my accounting professor. Class canceled! This is the first time class was canceled lol, such great timing! So, yeah, didn't go anywhere today~ Just relaxed and doodled a lot. :D

Tomorrow I've got class all day and my laptop isn't working, but it'll be ok. I get free cake and free food too~ Ahhhh~~

Also totally considering taking up commissions again to replace that thing, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what style to do. I want to take the advice I was given and do things that are small and cheap but I just.. don't know what to do that would be small. When I think small, I think pixel art, but pixel art takes a hella long time, and then it wouldn't be cheap. I'll figure something out.. Hell, I'll just spend some time tomorrow figuring it out since I won't have anything better to do. XD

It's.. always.. a bit weird uploading porn on FA, cause I know people IRL who watch me... It doesn't deter me much, but it's still awkward to think about. Meh. Then again, I used to be nervous about ANYONE seeing my porn. Or drawing it in general. Or drawing it with many people watching, like I do now.. >.>;
Been going through bouts of feeling really down here and there, but for now, all's well. God, yesterday was so much fun. Ding dongs EVERYWHERE. Buckets of ding dongs. XD It was cute to see that people outside the US didn't know a "Ding Dong" was also a food. Then again, I didn't know spotted dick or faggots were food in England either a while back.

House/car/job stuff is all still sort of what-the-hell-is-going-on.. all I need to do today is finish a commission, write my resume, and read a few chapter things of The Odyssey, but of course pchat is going to distract the fuck out of me and I'll probably do the commission and resume and put off the reading until Monday. XD;

WOOoooooo another A. :D Didn't expect to get 100% on my music test... so that's doubly awesome. But, woot, straight A's again.

Ahh I'm excited for tomorrow. Going to the grocery store for yogurt, candy, and ice cream lol. Ugh, well, now that I think about it.. suddenly I'm reminded of next fall. I've got a mandatory meal plan at the "dining hall" at my college, which is more or less an all-you-can-eat buffet for however long you want to stay until it closes. "We firmly believe that today's hard-working college students, faculty, and staff should be rewarded with a dining experience that provides a variety of fast, friendly services to make eating on campus palate-pleasing, healthy, and convenient." HAHAHA how are hamburgers, pizza, french fries, eggs, waffles, hash browns, creme brulee, cheesecake, ice cream, carrot cake, cupcakes, etc. healthy... Ughhh my main problem with this is, admittedly, I don't want to gain weight. >.< And forcing myself to eat there for long periods of time to make the most of the money I'm forced to spend on it.. will only pave the way for such a thing. The food itself is good, I'll ultimately get well worth my money, but..
Well, at least I only get 16 meals per semester, which would be once a week. Freshmen have to have 48.. o_o; I was exempt from paying for a meal plan when I was a freshman, since I was still in high school, so I'm glad for that.

But anyway ffffff looking forward to this Friday when people join the pchats again. :D

Mannn life is gooood. Aside from the awesomeness of the pchats, summer semester is over, and I've already got a confirmed A in one of the two classes I took, and I'll find out the other one in half a day or so.
Ever since I had that dream about a week ago about Hetalia weres, it's wormed its way into my mind to the extent that I'm even writing a story about it now. Me, actually willingly writing something.. XD And, well, the story I'm writing isn't quite the same as the dream, but it carries a lot of its qualities. I was wondering whether I should change America from being a jaguar to some other animal, but I'm keeping the jaguar from the dream after all. England's still a black wolf too, and still the successor of an undercover, illegal organization.
Ahh, I'm just so excited about it. <3 I've got a bunch of the plotline written out, but not all of it, characters and their animal counterparts figured out, designs more or less figured out, etc. So fun. And now that I'm on break, I have a lot of time to write about it and draw it.
I don't think it's going to be a full-out comic, but more of a fanfic with accompanying images here and there, or particular plot points of the fic drawn out in comic-like excerpts. Kinda like this. I started writing after I drew this, so the scene doesn't really happen, but it kind of does. ..lol.

It's just.. XD; I feel so weird drawing concept art about it. I just feel weird drawing these characters as kemonomimi/animals. I don't know whether it's welcome or not. I don't know whether it's too closely associated with furry and therefore not wanted. I don't want to be confronted about bastardizing the canon characters or something. x__x But, as I've been told and as I try to keep telling myself, haters gonna hate, and there are people here and there who aren't outwardly disgusted by it, so I guess everything's fine.
