Yup, this journal is locked.
Go ahead and comment if you want to friend me!
Just let me know where you know me from and there's a high chance I'll add you back, I'm not picky.
OH! Good news! I found people to go to This Is It with! Hopefully, we'll be going to see it Saturday night, and maybe go for sushi after, provided this place has vegetarian sushi for me.
The prospect just makes me really happy. :)
I should REALLY get to bed now, but I leave you with this little bit of brilliance:
His ukulele is so TINY! Even smaller than mine!
Ever heard of Tiny Tim? Some say creepy, some say weird, I say AWESOME.
He is definitely something else.
Happy viewing! :)
Alright, so here's an update attempt.
WELCOME AGAIN TO LJ FRIENDS FROM SHAMONE_MJ!
I'm just tickled pink to know you. :) SHAMONE, YOU PYTS!
I know I said I would update-ahem-two days ago, but I've literally been busy doing stuff all day...mostly homework. The odd thing is, instead of essays or other such boring assignments, all the major projects I've been assigned this long weekend (FOUR DAYS! I LOVE THIS NEW PRINCIPAL!) are 'creative' projects. Like, they're almost fun.
English: a pastiche of a passage from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. I wrote it in the style of Ibi Kaslik, and I'm quite proud of it. Maybe I'll post it..?
French: two neat projects. One, a photo album based on the movie Amelie (adorable, watch it if you haven't already). I took pictures of a friend for the project as if she's a visitor to the cafe, and then scrapbook paper got involved...basically, it's kickass, IMO. :p I'm still working on it, but I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out. Pictures will be posted!
Also for French, a comic strip based on a historic event (a la Tintin. I know, he's a BAMF.) It doesn't have to have Tintin in it, so I decided to do something Beatles-related--their first real performance as The Beatles at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, where they eventually met the manager that skyrocketed them to superstardom. HELL YEAH.
I haven't done fun stuff like this since elementary school. I was so worried about the comic, because I haven't really drawn anything significant in years. I took drawing and cartooning classes as a kid, but I eventually faced the fact that I had no talent whatsoever. BUT THERE IS HOPE! I showed my dad the last frame of my comic in rough form, and he actually recognized the Beatles! YESSS.
I just hope I don't screw it up while inking or colouring. Ooh...colouring. It gets precarious there...
I will post pictures of the inked strip, though! Just so I have something to remember it by if things go horribly awry.
Enough boring homework talk. Although it's literally the only thing I've done this weekend..LAME. XD
I'm getting braces, I've decided. I'm way late getting them and it's not the best time, as I'm going to graduate with train tracks, but my teeth bother me too much. They're not overlapping or underbiting or overbiting, in fact, straight across, they're perfectly straight. It's just that the front top four are tilted to the right severely enough so that two are longer than the other two. Apparently, you can't even tell until I mention it, but by god, I want them even!
I'm a tad apprehensive about it, still. The pain, the duration, the plumetting self-esteem, but in the end, I hope it's worth it.
Okay. My right eyelid has been telling me to sleep for the past six hours by twitching every five to ten seconds, and I'm finally going to listen to it now.
Happy now, eyelid?
P.S. My seven-year-old brother stole three pillows and my bear from me while I was in the shower, which is not going to help the sleeping situation at all. Butthead. I don't care if I'm more than twice his age, he's gonna get it when he wakes up.

...but yeah, my ipod's on shuffle, and this is the fourth MJ song in a row. I'm grinning like a fool. This is ridiculous...and awesome.
Apologies to my LJ-friends who dislike MJ. The fangirl in me was dying to escape. I would have spontaneously combusted if not. Really.
WTF WTF IT JUST SWITCHED TO ANOTHER MJ SONG. INSANITY!
Posted via LiveJournal.app.ETA: That's FIVE MJ songs in a row. Five! 8% chance, my right buttcheek.
This isn't even a real update, just an observation...
It's ridiculous how many times MJ songs have been coming up when my ipod's on shuffle these past few days. Ridiculous, I'm tellin' ya.
