Hey guys. Back again with a useless journal. Just wanted to say that school's been back in session for me since last week, and I'm quite busy, but I'm still drawing art to upload here! I'm doing smaller work loads so I don't get so overwhelmed. Maybe once a week or every two weeks I'll probably still upload maybe 10 pictures or something. I dunno. School's okay so far, drawing class is AMAZING, but my other classes bore me lol. And going to and from my art class, I have such heavy stuff to carry to and from the building (my community college has multiple buildings for different departments...quite a hike, if you ask me), and when I go to my last class I'm always sore and aching, out of breath, and feeling like my lungs are going to pop out of my chest. I need to get in shape. Anyway, I'm still going to be drawing and uploading stuff, but gotta juggle school alongside here as well. :) Also, since school is in session, I'm still not taking any requests.

Also, mom's going to call some doctor on Monday to set up an appointment to see me so we can discuss me getting a gastric sleeve surgery performed on me to help me lose weight. Believe me, guys, I've tried everything, but I always gain weight back more each time I lose it. This is my last chance if I don't want to get diabetes or heart problems or whatever. This is big for me. I hope I can be approved to get this surgery done, it's very important for me. :worry:

Other than that, things are going okay. Just wanted to let you all know I'm back in college this semester. Woooo.

Hey guys. Been a while since my last journal, so I thought I'd return with some boring updates.

First off, I'm going to try to be more active with uploading art here. I literally spend an entire week finishing up TONS of art that I scanned en masse, so expect a shit load of art to be submitted soon today. I have never been so fucking happy to get art done. I know I say this every time, but I honestly think I went overboard this time with finishing up art. Never. Again. And this is why I don't take requests anymore: I'm too fucking lazy to do my own art, and when I do, I overexert myself to the point of pure exhaustian. Anyways, I'll be submitting art later on today. For right now, I gotta let my laptop cool off for a bit.

ALSO! I'm going back to college in a couple weeks. I know, I know: "But April!? I thought you said school was too stressful and that you were glad to withdraw from your college!" Yeah, I know. Only here's the thing: This time, my mom is finally letting me go into the art major this time and take art classes (the first time I had art as a major, I was in University and I fucked up both semesters at university, so I had to go to community college and mom dictated what path to take. "Well if you think about being a teacher, then take teaching classes! You already messed up art at Wright State, so now what I say, goes" basically). I mean, sure, at my community college, Art is only a certificate or something and not an "official" major and stuff, but you know what? I'd rather earn just a certificate and be HAPPY with my classes and my path rather than getting a degree or whatever and being miserable earning it. Art is what I love, even if I'm super effing lazy. It's my passion. Despite all that interests me, art is what drives me most. That's why I'm glad to finally get into art classes to get a "degree." Granted, I still have yet to see an academic advisor and plan out my classes, but you know. But I looked ahead at what classes I would take and I'm ecstatic beyond belief at the overwhelming amount of art classes needed to take. Granted, I still gotta take stupid English Comp and Communications classes, but whatever. At least I don't have to take math! :giggle:

Anyways, after staying up until 3am this morning finishing up the last of my art, I've thought about for a while to just submit some fan art that is done traditionally (colour penciles, prismacolor markers, etc) instead of going full blown digital on it. Why? Well, not only because digital makes me weep with self pity when I scan too much fan art, but I've noticed that for pictures that take me two hours digitally, I could have finished it completely coloured with coloured pencils or whatever in just an hour or so. Plus I really need to use my prismacolors and colour pencils. They're hardly used. Lol. So if in the future I submit traditional artwork, that's why.

Enough of my rambling. See y'all later when I submit en masse!

I'm currently pissed off. My e-mail account, the one I've had since 2004, has been fucking hacked. I've had my suspicions for months, but I'm really starting to acknowledge it exists. I think the hacker is some fucking Russian. >.< For example, for many months, I kept getting my inbox filled with fashion newsletters I never even subscribed to (the only sites I've signed up for email newsletters are from sites like IJReview and other Conservative sites), and got several e-mails from someone at one of those Russian mail sites, like mail.ru or something like that. It all started months ago, I think. When I ordered some Foamy merch from illwillpress.com, I had to use PayPal. Now, I tried signing up with PayPal before, but it was too confusing so I quit and deleted my account before I could finish (whenever I use PayPal to buy stuff, it's only to use my e-mail and billing info, no account needed). Then the next month the bill came in, my card was charged $100 when I only spent about $35 on Foamy merch and $7.99 for Netflix. Something was fishy, but I paid no mind to it. And now, every so often, I get e-mails sent to my kiddypatches account telling me that my ebay and skype accounts have been suspended due to "suspicious activity," when I know for a fact I haven't done anything bad. Then today, I tried to log into my Origin account, and it told me my password was incorrect, despite me entering it EXACTLY the way I did just last night. And so I changed it, and I tried to change my e-mail that I had on my account (I got a new Yahoo e-mail today), but the security question answer was deemed "incorrect," even though I KNOW what I put for my answer. I'd never lie and put something stupid I'd never remember. And now I gotta call EA tomorrow and get it sorted out, or at least try to. I've heard EA's help line is horrible. >.< But I need to get this under control. Once I get EA sorted out, I'm deleting my e-mail for good. Stupid hackers. I don't understand why they can't leave people's accounts alone!

Hey again. I've been thinking, and, as much as I dislike Instagram, I'm tempted to make an Instagram to follow people I like who have one, and so if I finish a doodle or drawing I'm too lazy to scan, I could just post it on Instagram. I'm not sure. I probably will get one. I'll only follow a couple people so my news feed won't be cluttered with duck faced selfies or peoples lunch. Meh. If I get one, I'll update you guys.

Hey guys! I just realized today is my seven year anniversary of having a deviantART account. :XD: Well, I created my OLD account 7 years ago today (now deactivated). I've come a long way as a person and an artist. I still shudder when I remember back to the things I said and did on my old account. I'm so embarrassed at how horrible and immature I was. And my art, good lord. I've come such a long way since 2008. I've learned a lot over the years. :XD:

Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning for a follow-up to see how my prescriptions are helping and stuff. Luckily my thyroid is back to the number it needs to be. However, the doctor said the numbers for my cholesterol were quite high, so he prescribed be some medicine, I think it's a generic version of Lipitor (I don't know how to spell it xD) to try to get my cholesterol under control. Well, if I exercise and lose weight, it'll no longer be necessary to take this new prescription. Damn you junk food for being so tasty! :shakefist:

Just a small update for now~ ta ta~

I just need to not be so lazy XD and I just started playing the Sims 2 for the first time last night. I'm already hooked! (Though sims 3 is still better in my opinion XD) gah sorry for all that rambling. I'm just psyched because of my new phone! :love: also, am I the only one who keeps getting BOMBARDED with irritating app advertisements that take up the whole page every time I go somewhere on mobile? -__-

Hey guys. I'm a bit stumped here and a bit agitated. I've come to the conclusion that either I can't be on the internet on my laptop for very long, or be on the internet PLUS run an antivirus scan with my antivirus program whenever it detects a threat. I've come to the conclusion it's probably the latter, because the past two times I've done both at the same time (last Saturday early morning, and earlier today as a matter of fact), my computer gave me the Blue Screen of Death. Maybe the laptop just overheated from all of that processing information. I think it could be that, too (although if computers overheat, they blue screen every time upon use, so...meh), since my laptop seems to get hotter while using the internet for too long. Even when playing the Sims or any other high-processing games, my computer doesn't overheat that much. But then again, Windows just installed a crap ton of unnecessary updates last week, so that could be another reason. Months ago, back in August, my computer blue screened because of updates, but it only happened once and I forgot about it. Computers are fucking annoying, I swear. :/ If I had the money, I'd buy myself a better computer, but alas they cost an arm and a leg these days. Oh well. Ignore my rambling. :XD:

I know I say this a lot, but recently I found more old art of mine from like, 2007-10. I really want to redraw them all, so whenever I submit more art eventually, it will definitely be redraws of old fan art of mine from way back in the day. Meh. It's 3am, I can't sleep. :faint: Woohoo, though, I'm gonna play Facade later though. Woot!

Hello again people~:iconpatrickiloveyouplz:

I'm back with another unimportant journal entry. HOORAH! :la:...^^;

Well, some new stuff has kinda happened to me recently (not much, nothing important XD). First of all, last week I got my hair dyed to burgundy~! :love: I LOVE it!!! It makes me feel like a totally new person! Also, the other day at the Salvation Army, I got myself a new chair for the desk in my room. This one has a back to it, has wheels (that suck), is very comfortable, and SPINS!!!!! :la::excited: When I clean my room next week, I'll start using it. Hopefully this way I'll be more inspired when I draw. :D

Also, this week, I had pulled a muscle in my back when I was sleeping, so for days my back hurt like hell. :faint: It hurt to even move just a teeny bit or get out of bed and stuff. :( Luckily my back pain is 90% gone today. Thank goodness for that. @_@ Also lately, I've been watching a lot of the original Star Trek for the first time (I've watched it with mom almost every day for the past two or three weeks), and I'm loving it! :love: It's on that new channel, ME TV, it shows old TV shows from like the 50s-80s. I've been watching it a lot with mom and I'm starting to like some of those old shows like Star Trek, Emergency!, Welcome Back Kotter, Superman (with George Reeves), and so many more. It's an awesome TV channel. :D

As for art, I'm working on some pictures now, so they should be up by Sunday or Monday. Tuesday at the latest. I wish I didn't draw, scan, and colour art in bulk. @__@ it always takes FOREVER to get them done. :faint:

This coming week, I'll be busy cleaning my room. :XD: And hopefully this week me and mom can finally see the new Spongebob movie. :excited: I hope it's a good movie. :D I am looking forward to it a lot! :la:

Also, I think I'm planning to do a Gaara x Ino comic. I already have some ideas in my head for a story. But first I have to brainstorm the layout and stuff. :XD: I'm looking forward to doing it! However, I want some quick advice: there is a long flashback scene that sets up the story/is tied in to the story quite a bit. Should I put it in the first chapter and go from there or put it in later to explain the things that happened up to that point? Gah I fail xD

Anyway, see you all next time!

...I now ship GaaIno. I didn't think it was possible. :faint: But now, I am complete smitten with this crack pairing! :love::date: I've tried to like this pairing in the past by watching videos and browsing fan art, but it never seemed to appeal to me. I honestly don't know why, but a couple hours ago I felt like looking up GaaIno art again to try once more to see its appeal and ship it, and I think it finally worked because so much beautiful fan art FINALLY converted me to a shipper of Gaara and Ino! :excited: I guess my shipping tastes finally changed. :D I just find this couple adorable and hilarious at the same time! :giggle: I even have some fan art ideas of my own brewing in my head~;) I'm really glad I gave this couple another chance. :la: TIME TO READ FANFICS!!!! :excited:

Hey guys! ^_^

I'll be uploading art again soon, hopefully. Anyway, I was watching some Shane Dawson on his vlogging channel, Shane, and he was reacting to his old videos, pictures, and all that stuff. It reminded me of something I've been thinking about doing for the longest time, though I never did it.

I've been wanting to "react" to old fan art of mine from as far back as I can remember (at least seventh grade...maybe even before, but my room is so messy and I have tons of sketchbooks as it is from just the past few years xD), or at least show it to you guys on a video and link it here. It'd be like a little trip down memory lane and that way it shows how much I've improved since like 2007. Maybe I might react to old videos I made on my earlier youtube accounts, too. Who knows? :XD:

I don't know if I'll do it or not, but I just thought I'd put this out there in case I do decide to do it one day. :D

Also, thank you guys so much for almost 100,000 page views and almost 1,000 watchers! It really means a lot to me! :hug:

Well guys, I finally did it. I withdrew from my remaining semester at college. There was literally NO way to bring up all of my failing grades. I was way too far behind, so unless all my classes assigned extra credit worth a bajillion points, there was no way I would pass. Withdrawing would look better on my transcript than D's and F's. This semester was way too overwhelming for me. I'm glad I withdrew. My mom had even suggested I do it. Seriously, I only had like 3 or 4 weeks left and there's no way I could bring up my grades as they were. I'm just glad I got it over with. Maybe next year I'll be more focused, but for right now, college isn't an option for me. I may probably look for a job this summer or something. :shrug: At least now I'll have more time to work on art when I want to instead of school holding me back.

Also, guys, I'm at almost 100,000 pageviews! :la: I'm so excited! I never thought I'd get this far!

This is about a week late, but I just want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday last Wednesday. :love: It really meant a lot to me! Last week was really fun~

I had slept in until about noon. When I woke up, me and mom, and my grandma and stepgrandpa went out for dinner at a Mexican Restaurant in my city (it's been a tradition for the past few years now for birthdays). Luckily mom didn't tell the employees this year it's my birthday. I was so not looking forward to them singing "Happy Birthday" to me and plop on a big heavy sombrero on my head. :XD:  After dinner, we had cake and I got to open my presents. For my presents, I got:

-Season 17 of South Park
-Mr. Peabody & Sherman
-Nickelback's album "Dark Horse"
-One Republic's first album, I think it's called "Dreaming Out Loud" or something like that.
-Moneh~
-A GameStop gift card
-A Barnes & Noble gift card
-An iTunes gift card

After dinner, me and mom went straight to the mall where I got my ears pierced again for the third time (I had gotten my ears pierced in 2003 but they grew back; I got them pierced again on my 13th birthday in 2008 but they grew back after I had an unfortunate incident with my right ear as well as an infection...*shudders*), and I really like how they look! I also went shopping around the store I got my ears pierced in and got a few more earrings as well as an iPhone 4 case that says "If I Had a British Accent, I'd Never Shut Up." Aw yeah!

Then, I went to Hot Topic, one of my favourite stores ever! I got:
-A Death Note shirt with a chibi L
-An Alice in Wonderland tote bag/purse
-Attack on Titan earrings
-A Sailor Moon keychain

Then next door, mom found a nice store for plus sized clothing, and so I finally found some really nice bathing suits my size for this summer! I also got a very nice skull bracelet, and mom got herself lots of cheap bracelets that were on sale. I love that store now, too! But sadly the stuff there is so expensive. ;-;

Lastly in the mall, I went to GameStop and I bought a couple of Wii games (it's sad how just plain Wii games and PS2 games are getting harder to find at GameStop), a Freddi Fish game, and I also got Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games! :la: I was a bit annoyed, though. :XD: The game I had wanted to play SO MUCH two years ago, Calling, they didn't have back then, but this time, they DID have it! I was so aggravated. XD Well, not really. I really wanted to play it years ago, but after watching Pewdiepie play the full game, I realised how boring and slow the game really is. Oh well~

Then mom took me to Five Below where I got:
-A new laptop cooler
-An Alice in Wonderland book
-A Goofy plush
-Lots of pocky and Japanese candy
-Grumpy Cat stickers~

And that was the end of my day on my birthday last week. I also got a few gifts from some friends and a wonderfully FANTASTIC video made by my lovely boyfriend~ Here is a link to his video for me~:



So again everyone, thank you so much for the birthday wishes last week! :hug: And on a good note, my antidepressants are working WONDERS for me! I feel so much better now~

Hey guys. Long time to journal. Well, my 20th birthday is in two days. Whoop-de-friggin-do. I know I left on a depressing journal last month, but this journal is no better. It's nothing bad, just...to vent. Honestly, I have just been in a godawful mood these past few months. All because of school, what else? This is just like what happened last year when I went to a university: I completely lost all motivation in the second semester (though at university I didn't give a shit either semester). However, this year, my last semester was perfect: not too much of a workload, not too much stress, etc. And yet this semester I can't bring myself to do any of my work. I know, I know, schoolwork is important and blah blah blah, but believe me, I've tried. I can't get caught up this semester. I feel like all of my classes are moving too fast for me, and they ask for too much to be done for assignments. Especially my English Comp and Early Childhood Education classes. It feels like the assignments keep getting bigger and bigger with less time. And the math and psychology are also too demanding. I feel like I finish one test, and before I know it, another one pops up within the next couple of days. It's honestly ridiculous. I've even told my mom how I felt about school, and she can't understand where I'm coming from. I know she wants what's best for me and doesn't want me to end up unhappy in a job like her, but I honestly can't help it. It's just way too much to handle for me. Am I not doing the work because I'm lazy? Sure, partly, but I'm not doing the work because I've become too overwhelmed this semester so far, and the stress isn't going away because I have too much to do and only about a little over a month left of this semester and I don't see any signs of my grades improving. I've really tried this semester, but I can't help it. Math in this semester is unbearably difficult for me, psychology just isn't clicking with me, ECE has required too many big projects that I can't do, and one I can't even do because I don't have the resources for one project, and English Comp requires too much of the computer and internet that I can use, as well as deadlines being ridiculously too soon after being given. I just can't take it anymore.

Sometimes I feel like I'm just in a big fucking rut. I can't do anything right these days it seems. Because of this, my depression just won't get any better. I'm the kind of person where the more I have to do something/a specific deadline, I am least likely to actually get motivation to do the specific task. I do want to success in college and get a degree, but I want to do it when I'm ready and when it makes me happy. I don't want to end up like Chris Chan, jobless and a complete bum...*shudders* I vow that I will eventually get through college, even if it takes me forever. But as of right now, I just don't see its appeal if I'm forced to do things I don't want to do. And it doesn't help that teachers don't seem to understand either. "Oh, for this assignment you need to observe a young child and report on their progress. Oh you know no one with a young child? Well, ask your classmates, I'm sure they could help." ...Yeah, sure. Some parents are gonna let a complete stranger watch their kid and ask questions about their age "milestones" for a class project. I very highly doubt that would sail well with people. Plus most of my classmates' kids are in high school or they don't have any at all.

Anyways, I'm sorry for being depressing again. I just really wanted to get this off my chest. Depression can be a fucking bitch. Thank goodness I now have prescription for it.

Heh. My birthday is on Wednesday and I don't even know what to ask my mom for my gifts. Oh well. When you get older, you run out of things you want. :shrug: I hate getting older. :XD:

Today is my dear friend's birthday. Or, at least, it would be. He would have been 21 today...my dear friend :iconlorddarkness0:, who passed away months ago. I miss him so much every day, and I've been sad a lot lately. I miss him. I just wish he was still here so I could tell him himself happy birthday. *sigh* You don't know how important someone is to you until you lose them.

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. :)
