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.

I have decided. I'm taking a hiatus.

I will not be posting anymore this year.

This is my last post until next year.

I'm in class right now and we're supposed to be editing a silent black-and-white film that is due Tuesday.
But I'm going on Livejournal, 'cause I haven't started.
I mean, I've done everything short of actually filming the thing. And editing it after it is filmed, of course.

I don't really have much to say. I'm just bored.
This class is SO LONG. I mean, it's the same amount of time as any other class, it just feels ridiculously long.

I'm going to Chem next and I get to play with toxic chemicals. Boy, am I excited, especially when I think my lab partner is a pyromaniac. Seriously, his eyes light up whenever fatal side effects or explosions are mentioned. -facepalm-
I'm scared.
This might be my last LJ post EVER.
Oh no! Here comes the pressure to say something meaningful!

If any of you lovely bbs haven't added me on Facebook yet, please do!
Just let me know if you're adding me with a comment, please. :)

I had a relatively good day today.
The math exam I was panicking about went by not too badly. I pestered a teacher about copy, so I technically did SOMETHING for yearbook. I scanned old yearbooks for the slideshow student council wants me to do for the ~Gala~.
And I talked to people civilly, which just makes me happy.

Goddammit, I need sleep. I've been waking up late all week. I've actually had to get myself ready in 20 minutes. Good thing I don't care much about hair or makeup, eh?
Not that I don't bring this whole 'lack-of-sleep' thing upon myself. I stay up late for no reason whatsoever. I just feel...weird trying to sleep before 12.
I'm doing it again. It's 12:30, and I'm posting pointlessly on LJ while my eyelids are literally slipping down every few seconds.
Do I have a problem?

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! :)

Ughh, it's approximately 12:45 and I'm still not in bed.
I was working until 11:45, and spent the last hour doing my LJ dailies. I know it's a bad idea, because I always stay up so late, but I know that there's no way I'll be able to sleep if I don't.
I'll go INSANE!

Alright, so my only real purpose for posting tonight (I usually do on weekends) is to post my other project, which I'm also really proud of. Mostly because I haven't drawn a comic strip since I was 10 and taking cartooning classes, and this project requires me to draw just that.
I scanned the inked version in case I messed it up while colouring. I'm not sure if I've messed it up! Idk, I'm pretty satisfied.
It's a comic strip based on a historic event, a la Tintin. I only got inspired by something Beatles-related. :P
Unfortunately, my scanner worked TOO well this time, and you can see my awful colouring in full, gory detail. LOL. Well, I THOUGHT it was even.
Once again, these are in attempted french, so there's translations underneath in the logical comic strip order. (Left to right, row by row)
Oh, and obviously, inked first, then coloured. Tell me which you like better, haha.
I just saved your flist's life. Now what will you give me? :DCollapse )

Alright, so here's an update attempt.

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.

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.

ETA: It just changed to "Lala means I love you" by The Jackson 5, with one song in between. I kid you not. This is insane.

I've been an absentee LJ friend this past week, I'm sorry.
But it this week was so rough for me. I hate being ill. I've been sick for over a week now, and it was the worst early last week and only started getting much better around Thursday. I came back from staying over at a friend's house on Sunday with an awful runny nose. I used a whole Kleenex every 5 minutes. My dad first suggested it was allergies, as my friend has two dogs, but I'd stayed over at her house lots of times and this hadn't happened before. On Monday, I felt awful but dragged myself to school for first, only to find that I could barely hold myself up and calling my mom to bring me home immediately after. Tuesday was spent lounging around the house still feeling crappy. At my dad's suggestion, I took an antihistemine to help my nose, just half a tiny sleeping pill. It was amazing, though, it worked on my nose about half an hour later, and a half hour after that, I was out like Ugg boots. (Ba-dum CHHH! I never liked those anyway.) Unfortunately, the effects of the pill lasted all the way through first the next morning, and I actually contemplated falling asleep for a 15-second nap when my teacher went to the back of the class. Yeah, THAT desperate.
I still feel kinda nasty, though, especially because I keep tasting something disgusting in the back of my mouth. I suspect it's due to a post-nasal drip or something equally barf-worthy. Out, damn'd mucus!
I caught a bit of the Emmys just now. The two most striking moments for me were the "In Memoriam" montage, and Michael J. Fox's presentation of a couple Emmys. That song Sarah McLachlan, so overplayed, still gets me every time. Idk why, but I just felt so depressed watching the montage, despite the fact that I didn't know who 90% of the people were. When bb Michael Jackson first came onto the screen, I was all, Aww. Then, Oh, shit, he's dead. FML. And then I suddenly felt like bawling. Not just for MJ, but all the incredible people we lost this year- Paul Newman, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, Natasha Richardson... I hate thinking about death. I hate hate hate it. (Every one is necessary.)  And also, Michael J. Fox. Just think back to him in Back to the Future...he looked so young, healthy, alive. Now maybe this is just me, but did anyone else notice how strained he looked? And the way he was moving, was that the result of Parkinson's? Idk if those were tremors or what, but it just broke my heart to see him like that, to see him deteriorating so young.
Moving on. I finally get to start yoga tomorrow! I had to miss last week's class because I was sick, but I'm so excited for tomorrow. I even already know what I'm wearing.
I'm off the check the Best & Worst Dressed lists for the Emmys now.

P.S. When I saw Heidi Klum in profile on the red carpet, I said "Holy hell..." IRL. Just putting that out there.
