  • Reading: My Psychology notes for tomorrow e3e
Just doing a lil' update journal...thing. ^^; So, currently, I am working on art. I just need to scan and colour the pictures. Sorry I've been inactive on art for so long. School, you know. ^^; So far, second semester is stressful. Not to mention the fact that all my classes are basically online dependent and you have to practically be glued to your computer 24/7 to get assignments done. And the teachers don't give much time. They're just like, "Oh yeah, you have a test tomorrow even though we didn't spend nearly enough time in class going over the contents!" or "You have a six page paper due in two nights!" It's really fucking stressful. Not to mention the fact that I don't have the best internet in the world, so I can't afford being on the computer ALL the time to do everything. It's really annoying. I miss old fashioned workbook homework assignments and reading stuff out of the text book or a book of your choice. So stupid. Plus, all the reading we have to do is online as well, and I literally can't read very well on a computer. Meh. Beggars can't be choosers. I swear the second semester of anything is always stressful. Oh well. I'll get used to it eventually. :D

Anyway, lately I've been having a LOT of fun making manips (mostly of Carrie, of course ^^; ) and I'm wondering if I should go ahead and submit them to my gallery (probably to the scraps folder), because some come out pretty good. I mean, they're not fantastic, but I think they look pretty nice. I probably will eventually anyway, so. :shrug: I'm currently unsure if I want to or not, but I think I'll eventually go ahead and do it. I just need to give some of the pictures I've already made a colour filter over them to look nicer. So if you all start seeing manips from me, don't freak out. :XD: It's just something I've been doing lately and I've become addicted to doing it. :la:

Lastly, I've been having a hankering to write fanfictions again after reading some. Jareth/Sarah fanfictions and Chamiko fanfics have got my creative juices flowing again in my brain, and I've been thinking of story ideas a lot. I'll probably write some stuff, mostly one-shots, and submit them here. I haven't posted on my fanfiction.net account in almost two years, and I'd hate to show back up with new stories while my current ones are discontinued...^^; Maybe I'll just make a new fanfic account and submit my stories there as well as here. I've got plenty of oneshot ideas. I also really am addicted to angsty fanfics with love triangles (like, for example, I'm addicted to Jareth/Sarah fics where Jareth is engaged or married and Sarah realises how much she loves him and tries to get him to be with her again, and yeah. XD). I am such a sucker for angst. :XD: So yeah, I'll probably post some short fanfics here some time in the future.

Don't worry, I swear to God I'm working on art. It's just taking me a while. :XD: I also recently saw the movie "FernGully: The Last Rainforest." Very cute movie, I can't believe I never saw it until just a couple nights ago. And BONUS!: it had Tim Curry. And Tim Curry sang. :blush::faint: I also watched the movie "Little Man" again. I forgot how funny that movie is. The Wayans brothers are fucking comedy geniuses. :lmao: If you haven't seen it, check it out on Netflix. :D

So, that's all! Enough of my rambling! See you all next journal! :D

Ten facts:

:bulletpink:I once almost drowned when I was about four years old
:bulletpink:When I was younger, I had a bad case of asthma, and I was almost always at the hospital.
:bulletpink:I own an original Nintendo NES. I got it years ago at a garage sale, but I could never play it until last year because it didn't come with the power adapter. Once I got all the required replacements, I've been playing old school Nintendo a lot.
:bulletpink:I have almost every classic Disney film on VHS
:bulletpink:I'm allergic to chocolate, and have been since Halloween night 2004. What a time to discover my allergy, huh?
:bulletpink:I own two Gameboy Advance SPs, a Nintendo DS, a NES, a Wii, and a PlayStation 2.
:bulletpink:I've never been to Disney World or Disney Land
:bulletpink:When I was a child, I was OBSESSED with Sailor Moon. I had tons of dolls, plushies, one of those toy sceptors (I have no idea how to spell that) that would make sounds from the anime, and I still have all the Sailor Moon VHS tapes from when I was four years old. Long live classic Saillor Moon. :XD:
:bulletpink:I've seen the film Spirited Away</b> at least two hundred times.
:bulletpink:I wish to become a preschool teacher after I finish college. But there are times where I really want to just be an artist.

Georgia's Questions:


1} What is your opinion on fanservice in anime/television? Do you think it can hinder a plot, if used excessively?

It can sometimes. The only fanservice anime/TV I liked is Panty and Stocking but that's about it. Fanservice is good in moderation, but if it's what the entire fucking plot is revolved around, it gets annoying. Especially if it's in filler episodes in anime when it has nothing to do with the anime. For example, if there was a filler episode of...Attack on Titan, I guess, that strays from the plot only to show off the ladies of the series in hot springs and panty shots, I would find that ridiculous and it would annoy me to no end. The series is about killing the Titans, not making the girls look Moe. That goes for any anime or TV show, really. I came for the realistic, intelligent plot, not girls pulling out their boobs and make out sessions between everybody.


2} Do you think that learning about international history is more valuable than learning national history?

Yeah. Regardless of where the history comes from, it's still vital to learn so nobody anywhere else can make the same mistakes.


3} What do you think about the portrayal of men and women in the media? Is it different to you?

*shrug*


4} What do you look for in a 'good story' to read?

Something that isn't a chick flick on paper. *shudders*


5} Do you prefer to listen to music with headphones or listen to it out-loud?

Headphones. It feels like it goes all throughout your body if you have earbuds in rather than just out loud. I like music being the only thing I can hear, rather than blending into the environment.

6} Do you think the media undermines mental illness? (As in, acts as if it's not a big deal.)

I don't know, I think it depends, really. On one hand, you have media that brushes it off, and then you have...TUMBLR *shudders* But I do think the media covers mental illness a good amount when needed. As stated, it all depends on the situation.

7} Is Shakespeare's work significant to us?

I guess so. He's shaped modern theatre, and there has to be SOME reason as to why every school makes students read something of his.


8} Do you have a pairing you ship that may not make sense to the majority of the fan-base? Which is it, and why is it 'illogical'?

...I have WAAAAY too many, girl. :XD: I'm not listing them all. We'd be here for days!


9} What is your favourite song/music genre?

I already answered my favourite kind of music in my last tag, so I'll answer with the song. Currently, my favourite songs are
-"As the World Falls Down" by David Bowie
-"For Bitter or Worse" by ?
-"The Beast" by Imogen Heap
-"Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Rey
I have more, too, so. XD


10} Do you believe in horoscopes, or simply read them out of curiosity?

Eh, I don't really believe in them, nor do I read them. I have once or twice for fun, though.

Answers to Andy's questions:

1 if you could be any character from any movie or tv show who would it be and why

Hmm...tough one. I would have to say Carrie (from the original film) because I empathise with her a lot and I adore her. That, and kickass telekinesis! I would also like to be Ash Williams (from Evil Dead) because he is AWESOME!!!!

2 what do you like about me and why

Everything! :love: You're handsome, you're funny, you're such a gentleman, you're open minded, you're a great video editor, you're so sweet and nice, and you're the best boyfriend in the world! :love:

3 who would you like to go on a date with and why

Aside from you, probably Carrie. :XD: Or Ash Williams. Or Jennifer Check. Definitely John Stamos too~~~:heart: :drool::blush:

4 name your top 10 favorite films and why

1)Carrie (1976).
2)The Ju-On series. (I'm a sucker for Japanese horror! :love: )
3)Psycho (1960)
4)Rocky Horror Picture Show
5)The Evil Dead (the first film, 1981. It's my favourite out of the entire Evil Dead franchise)
6)Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame
7)All the Chucky films, except for Curse of Chucky
8)Norbit
9)Lolita (both 1960 and 1997)
10)Labyrinth

I have plenty more favourites, though! I like them all because, well, they're awesome!


5 would you join the ghostbusters or the MIB

I'd have to go with Ghostbusters, since I've only seen that movie. The first one. Seven years ago...^^;

6 what is your dream vacation

Possibly Tokyo, Japan; back to Paris, France; or London, England.

7 what was the thing that scared you

Oh shit, many things scare me. Snakes, spiders, roaches, fear of getting cancer, fear of dying, skeletons, the dark sometimes, the Evil Dead (yes, that movie gave me nightmares xD shut up), ventriloquist dummies (not Jeff Dunham's though), ghosts, demons, attics and basements, crawlspaces, and creepy dolls. *shudder* :faint:

8 what is your life like when your not on the computer

Well, I sleep, play the sims, go out sometimes, go to school, homework, draw, read, write sometimes, and watch movies. Also reading fanfictions. Woohoo, I'm so interesting. XD

9 who would you switch lives with and why

Nobody, really. My life's fine the way it is. Now if we're talking time machines, then...

10 what's your favorite music and why

Honestly, I like most music from the early 2000s and before. Music started going down the toilet once the 2010s hit in my opinion. I like a decent amount of music, mostly classical, pop, disco, 80s, classic country, bluegrass, SOME rap, light metal, rock, techno, celtic, Japanese and Chinese, and soft music. I also like creepy music. :shrug:

So there's what I did for this tag. :XD: I'm not tagging anybody, I'm too tired to right now and I'm too lazy. In regards to art, I'm drawing stuff at least. Don't know when I'll post anything, though, but I'll try to be soon. :)

Hey guys! Well, after long waiting (trust me, computer withdrawal starting setting in on me :/ ), I finally got my replacement laptop charger! :excited: I can't wait to spend the rest of Christmas break on the computer again! :la: Though, in regards to art, it still will take a while, since I haven't been inspired lately, and I'm still on vacation from drawing for a while. I'll try to get stuff done soon. I'm sure once I'm back to school, THEN the ideas will start flowing again. :XD:

I also got new glasses yesterday! Two pairs~ :la:

Plus, how was your guys' Christmas (or whatever holiday you prefer)? :) I hope you all had a fun one!

Man, I can't believe it's almost 2015 already. Dammit, stop going so fast, time!

Isn't technology a wonderful thing? I just love having a product for so long and all of a sudden, the power adapter/charger decides to no longer work. :sarcasm: That's exactly what my laptop did to me today at the library. I tried plugging it in, but it absolutely would not work. The little green light on the battery pack wasn't lit, it wouldn't work no matter what plug outlet I used, nothing. It just flat out died on me. I mean, it was working for like, a brief minute, until I put the battery pack part on the floor, then it spazzed out and hasn't worked since. I tried again when I got home, but yep, the power adapter is dead as a doornail now. So now I need a replacement. *rolls eyes* Now, my charger had been funky at times before, but I had been able to fix it by jiggling it a little in the socket, but now that doesn't work. The damn laptop is three years old this Christmas and already the charger's dead. Ughhhh. So, regrettably, I won't be getting up artwork until at least next week when the replacement charger is expected to arrive (not like I've been super active with art lately anyway...^^; ).

Anyway, I had finally seen both the Stanley Kubrick and the 1997 movie versions of Lolita,, and I absolutely adore the movies! Well, despite it's very touchy subject and content, the films were very nicely made. Kubrick's and the '97's versions were both really amazing. Kubrick's Lolita was more, I guess, "laid back," whereas the 1997 version took on a more dramatic approach than Kubrick, and follows closer to the novel on which it is based on. Aside from the offensive subject matter (if you've read or know the basic idea of Lolita,, you'll certainly understand what content I'm talking about), both do a wonderful job, and are great movies nonetheless (despite both films being well over two hours each xD).
The other movie I saw for the first time was Wreck-it Ralph. I know I know, I'm awfully late seeing it. I never really had a chance to see it until recently...^^; It was a very cute movie, it gave off a video game version vibe of Toy Story. Ralph was a great and entertaining character, and he was certainly interesting. Fix-it Felix was...amusing. :XD: (I love his voice actor!) Calhoun was a badass and gorgeous at the same time. King Candy/Turbo kinda got on my nerves, but he was a cool villain. As King Candy, he reminded me of the  Mad Hatter from the original Disney version of Alice in Wonderland. Vanellope was a pretty cute kid. I like how things turned out well for her in the end. Her voice fits her character well (even if I'm not crazy on who plays her), and she's totally an awesome little kid. Overall, this was a very cute movie.
Lastly, the other movie I saw for the first time was Jennifer's Body. Awesome movie, I gotta say. It works for a "teen" horror flick (I'm not too crazy on films like this), and I found myself really enjoying the story. I liked Jennifer despite her attitude towards her friend Needy (really, is that how you treat a friend?!), her demon powers were awesome, and I felt kinda bad for her at the end when Needy broke off their friendship and killed her. That sucks, man. Chip was alright. Nice guy. Needy was also alright. I liked her character, and how she went to go avenge Jennifer at the end by going to kill that band. Too bad we didn't get to see that. :/ Ah well. I also didn't really care for the scenes were the boys' guts were everywhere. Yuck. *shudders* Overall, I did enjoy the movie. For a "teen" horror flick, it wasn't too cheesy. I wish there was a sequel to it, though. :'( But ah well, if there isn't, there isn't.

By the way, I hope all my watchers or anyone reading this has a very Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays! :santa:

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while. As usual, school is becoming the death of me, and I just haven't been as inspired to draw lately. When I do draw, it comes out all gross and sketchy, and I'm simply just too lazy to finish the stuff that looks decent enough to line and colour. Don't worry, :iconcarriejokerbates::iconmayorfreak2003::icondragonyoukaikanachan:, I'm working on your guys' requests. Just need the motivation to get myself lining and colouring. Lately I've just been doing school work, and I've honestly fallen into periods of deep depression and anxiety that prevent me from concentrating on my art. Even though Naruto's ending made me overjoyed beyond all reason (SasuSaku, NaruHina, and ShikaTema are FINALLY canon! About damn time!), I've still been feeling miserable. I want to upload stuff, but I just can't due to my stupid negative thoughts as of late. I'll be fine. I'll get art done, it'll just take a while.

Anyway, I finally watched the movie Labyrinth yesterday and I LOVED it, and it fueled my obsession of the pairing of Jareth and Sarah even more so now that I've finally seen it, so once I ever get my butt in gear, I'll start drawing some Jareth/Sarah art (as well as some of the other characters too!). And I read the novel Lolita last week, and it's now one of my favourite books, oh my.

Not much an interesting journal, just thought I'd pop in and update you all on why my art has been slow lately. :)

I bought the Sims 4. After months of proclaiming my hatred for it because of the lacking features, I finally broke down and got it used off Amazon for $39 :XD: ^^; All I gotta say, though, I really fuckin' hate Origin. In the old days, you just pop in your disc, install it, and go. Now you gotta download the game through Origin, which takes FOREVER, and it makes my laptop hot. Meh. X( Why, EA? Why torture us with your third party downloader? :shakefist: Unimportant update is unimportant. XD

Sorry guys. My requests are currently closed at the moment. I won't accept free requests from strangers anymore. I will only do requests for close friends or gifts for people. I probably won't open more requests for strangers again (mostly because of a couple times where someone requested something from me but they never bothered to fave the picture or say so much as a "thank you" after I worked my ass off on their free request). I'm deep in requests to do already, and I don't want to add more onto the list.

Not only are requests closed because I have a lot to work on already, I have several other reasons as to why I'm not doing requests at this moment:

:bulletpink:SCHOOL. As laid back as my college is, I still have a LOT of assignments to do, and usually when I get home I am too tired to focus on drawing. I need to focus on my school work. I can't be drawing requests willy nilly if I want to get passing grades and do well in school.

:bulletpink:Art block. Even if I'm given a request, since I don't really have much freedom as I do with personal art, I get an art block big time. Art blocks always come to me these days.

:bulletpink:I want to work on my own art. I really rather draw things that come to my mind as personal art rather than be given a prompt or request. My best work is work I come up with spontaneously and doodle at home.

:bulletpink:Sometimes I just don't feel like drawing, ya know? Shocking as that may seem, I really don't want to be glued to a sketchbook and tablet 24/7 working on art. I'm lazy enough with my personal art, and I'm even lazier if it's something I'm asked to draw out of random (unless it's requested by a friend). I'm not always in the mood to draw.

:bulletpink:I have other things I want to do in my spare time. Even if it isn't a very exciting one, I do have a life outside of drawing. Sometimes I want to play the Sims. Sometimes I want to watch movies. Sometimes I want to clean my room, read books, play video games, make crossover videos, go out shopping, etc.

I'm sorry everyone, requests are CLOSED until I get my current requests finished. But even then, I won't do free requests. I'll be open to points commissions eventually, but no requests. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Questions:

1.) Are you a Doctor Who, Supernatural, or a Sherlock fan?

Fuck no. I kinda like supernatural, but doctor who and Sherlock aren't for me. Plus the fans are crazy so I'm staying away from the Wholock. I've tried but I can't get into it. It bores me. Sorry superwholock fans.


2.) Favourite pairing(s) of any show/book/anime/manga?

...if I listed them all, we will be here for years.

3.) What are your opinions of crack-shipping? For, against?

Most of my ships ARE crack, so I'm obviously for it.

4.) If you could crossover any two of your favourite shows/books/anime/manga, what would it be? (Get creative! What would it be like? How would the characters interact?)

Too much detail! XD I guess a crossover between The Evil Dead and Carrie so I can ship Ash x Carrie? XD

5.) Do you read fanfiction? If so, are there any cliches you just cannot stand which are seemingly always present in fanfiction?

Yes. I hate the "tongues battled for dominance" and veeeeery laid back fics. Like, the villain always chills out with the heroine like it's no big deal and they're friends forever and yeah xD and I hate random fics that are so "ZOMG THEY KISSED KAWAIIIIIIIII SUGOI!!!"...and also yaoi fics that overdo the suicide and emo references.

6.) Does a popularity of a show/book/anime/manga ever throw you off watching it, or encourage you to watch it?

Free!, Wholock, Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, and others.

7.) Would you say fanservice is a good or bad thing?

Depends. Panty & Stocking is good. But Rosario + Vampire overdoes it to an annoying point (sorry Jorge). Same for Kill La Kill. Just my opinion, don't kill me.

8.) Not all shows/books/anime/manga are perfect. Has one you liked ever done something that made you hesitant to continue watching it after that point?

Strawberry Panic, although it's mostly my laziness keeping me from continuing. Well that and MLP. It doesn't appeal to me as much anymore.

9.) Character's death that hit you the hardest?

I never cry for characters deaths except for L. And maybe Eren's mom.

10.) Is there a character you love above all others? Who are they and what are they from?

Honestly, I love too many to pick just one.

~~~~~~

I don't wanna tag anyone or continue. I'm bad at questions.

Hey guys. I'm back!

Sorry I haven't been on as much. I've been eaten alive by tumblr. Anyway, just so you know, I AM working on art (I've just been so lazy as usual), especially art for Shingeki no Kyojin with my OTPs~So expect some art from that fandom soon. Also, I've gotten in to a new college (community college where my mom and dad met in the 80s), and I'm actually excited to go there. More than I was for University! And I'm going into the Early Childhood Education field, and I'm lucky because in my first semester I can jump right in and help with the lil ones! I'm so excited!

Oh yeah! Happy Independence Day, too.

Hey guys. Still no art from me yet. I've been doing a lot better these past couple of weeks. It's just finals week right now and I'm freaking out over doing last minute essays. Overall, I'm doing much better. I'm redrawing and recolouring all of my old InoHina artwork and it's been taking weeks and I'm not done yet, but hopefully I will be soon.

Paris, let's just say, is exactly like New York City, but with older apartments and no times square. It was frikkin' chilly for the four days there. And of course it got warm when we left. ._.

The first day, all we pretty much did was see the Louvre. That museum was HUGE. Our tour guide (who was an annoying as hell old lady) told us that if you were to look at every single art piece in the Louvre, it'd take 3 years to go through them all. Holy crap lol.

We *kinda* got to see the Mona Lisa. But everyone wanted a picture and it was so crowded, so I got a crappy picture. But at least I got one! And the Louvre is beautiful!

The second day we went to...I forget where...to see Monet's gardens (in my opinion, Monet wasn't that great an artist...). We rode bikes there and I never felt so tired in my life! We passed by a trailer park full of gypsies though. O.O The kids made kissy noises to all of us. It was weird. The kids were like...three.

Anywho, we went there but for a little while because we had a train to catch. On the way back, my bike was in low gear and uh...^^; I was going downhill with a breeze, and I couldn't brake in time...and hit a metal pole and backflipped onto the concrete. It hurt like HELL! The bike was totaled, I had a maaajor bump on the back of my head, scraped my knee, and had gotten several bruises. And my butt hurt from the seat, so the rest of the day was not fun. The police transported me back to the train station where I waited for about ten minutes for the group to come back. Yeah, not fun. But the train ride back was quick and we had dinner. Luckily, I was allowed to go back to the hotel for the night. I was so grateful I didn't get a concussion. But my leg still has a scrape. It's probably infected, cuz the bone near it hurts when I touch it and it still hasn't healed. Oh well. :shrug:

The third day, we went a lot of places. We went to the Palace of Versailles. It'd been there since Louis XIV (fourteenth, for those nimrods who can't understand Roman numerals.). And there was SOOOO much gold everywhere. Dude, that castle was GORGEOUS! I wanted to live there...0.0 It was even more beautiful than the Louvre! We saw the room and bed where Marie Antoinette gave birth. And that room had a passage to where she escaped when the Parisians came after her. And the courtyard was SO gorgeous. But like...300 years ago it had so much more land, which was hard to believe!

After that, we traveled to Notre Dame cathedral. And let me tell you: I FUCKING LOVE that cathedral! (And NO, it's not because of the Disney movie nor the book by Hugo.)Holy shit, it's the most beautiful place ever! It looked just like the movie on the inside! They had gorgeous stained glass windows and they even had saved a chandelier from when it was first opened. It was huge! Just...oh my god I'm in love with that building! :faint: And the outside was gorgeous! The statues of saints, the doors, just...gaaah everything was an eyegasm! But there were no steps...probably got rid of them when they made streets. :shrug: But oh my god, I'm obsessed with Notre Dame.

The last day was a free day. I stayed in my room all day drawing until dinner. After dinner, we took a boat ride around Paris. It was marvelous. And we saw the Eiffel Tower lit up. :heart:

The next day, we took a like 4 hour train ride to Nimes. That's the Roman city in France. It was warmer, thank God. We got to see a tree that was there since 908 A.D., an old bridge, and the coliseum. It's THE best preserved Roman coliseum in the world. The steps were steep getting up and down, Jeeez! I had to hold on stuff or I woulda fallen. Anyway...we got to the very top row and got a beautiful view of Nimes.

After, we saw some cheesey film in what was once one of the like...capital buildings or something. Like a mini-temple. It was gorgeous. I LOVE Roman architecture. Then we went to an ancient park. It was beautiful.

We got an old hotel that night, and I had *the* best room out of everyone in the group. It was across the courtyard. It was pretty big, and it had a GIANT balcony outside. You could open the doors and go on to the balcony that was shared with three more rooms, and go down the stairs into the lobby. It was wonderful!

Then, we took a four or five hour bus drive to Barcelona. Barcelona, sad to say, was better than Paris. It was warmer! And prettier...kinda. (Sad thing is, Ohio is hotter than Barcelona was.)

Barcelona...meh, can't recall much. Like, it was indescribable. :) I loved it, though. But I DO remember on the first night, we were somewhere and I saw a bunch of gay couples who just got married. It warmed my heart :heart: JAKE! WE MUST WED IN BARCELONA!!!!

I've been back from my trip 3 weeks from yesterday. So glad to be home, but I fuckin' miss Europe. Especially the metro lol.

But now, I'm coming up with a cold, so I'm not feeling great. And I'm almost tempted to give up on Korra. Korra's okay, but...I prefer the original Avatar cast. :shrug:

BACK TO DRAWING!
  • Mood: Tired
I'm finally back. Over 12 hours riding a plane. :faint: I'll post more details later. I'm just pooped out right now.
