Sunday Post and General Update

August 16th, 2009 (01:44 pm)

I haven't felt hungry for about two days. I've still been eating, but I skip meals sometimes. It doesn't really make a difference.

I found out that my iodine levels are high. My mom says that it's not that bad, but they want to give me another examination and maybe medicate me for a while. My mom also says that it might be why I've been so moody and tired lately. I didn't realize that I was any more moody and tired than usual, but I've been wrong before. Maybe that's why I haven't been hungry, I don't know.

I'm sitting here in my pyjamas. I'm not really doing anything until tonight, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself untill then. Maybe I'll go up to the Columbia bookstore and read for a few hours, like I keep meaning to.

I made another coloring of a character on photoshop. I think it turned out okay.

I watched all three Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends movies yesterday. I think that my favorite is Good Wilt Hunting, but the other two are also good. I have to say that Foster's was one of my original inspirations for Open Hours, and it reminded me why.

I haven't worked on my college essays. I haven't worked on my art for AnimeFest. I keep telling myself that I'm going to.

As ever, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

I Have Done Battle With the Mighty Photoshop

...And I have emerged victorious! By my standards anyway.

Oh God

August 10th, 2009 (08:45 pm)

Well, I returned from my clooege tour minivacation. The trip was nice. I saw colleges, ate out lots, and got some new jeans and a belt. The belt is from Hot Topic, which means that I went to my first Hot Topic. Three words: Twilight Trading Cards. What the FUCK, people.

Also, I went to the mall's Lush. I actually didn't like it as much as the one on seventysomethingth street. See, the Lush I know is dimly-lit and cozy-feeling, just as an organic bath-supplies store should be. This lush was glass-walled and florecent-lit. It caught me a little off-guard. I didn't buy anything.

Anyway, it's editing week at Wingspan, which means that I have begun the tiring but oddly satisfying process of editing footage together. I actually had a pretty good day, except for about ten minutes ago.

Wow, ALL of my entries are starting to go like this.

It's just that all of my deadlines (college applications and essays, AnimeFest art that I have barely any of, etc.) are really weighing me down, and I feel ridiculously unmotivated and unable to sit down and get shit done. I know, I know, it drives me crazy too, but there it is. I don't know if it's a mental block, or a psycological issue, or a pathological fear or some combination, but for some reason things that are merely moderately difficult for most are stupidly, pointlessly impossible for me.

So, as luck would have it, I'm giving myself a break from this, using the computer while my dad watches Dr. No, when my mom busts in demanding that the TV turned off and I write an email to my Wellesley interviewer thanking her, right that very second, or there was no concievable way that they'd remember me, making it impossible for me to even THINK about attending the school. And I've missplaced her business card.

So this is about the time when I send my mom off to the living room to find the cards (knowing full well that they're probably mixed in with the pages of my notepad, which they were, but hell I was pissed at her and she's sent me on wild goose chases before. Hey, I'm not saying I'm exactly a saint.) while my brother tries to console me as I wail over the keyboard "I can't do this anymore, I can't DO this anymore".

Fortunately, my dad retrieved the business cards, I laid my cards on the table (if nothing else, I'm honest) and I sent the emails. And now dad's back with Dr. No and I'm typing this.

I just thought you should know.

Sorry to bitch about random stuff on here

July 28th, 2009 (07:08 pm)

Well, today wasn't actually that bad. It was really tiring, though. LOTS of filming. We were shooting from about 10:00 to 4:30. I got cake, though. One of my studio members, Harley is an AMAZING baker, and she made this great lemon cake for the birthday party scene.

When I got home it wasn't so bad, either. Sure, my brother wouldn't get off the computer for a while, but that's pretty normal. And, eventually, I did get on. I read some pretty good Labrynth fanfic, too.

The real problem started at dinner. It started out, like it always does, pretty inocently. We were eating, and I noticed that my mom was wearing a bracelet that I had made when I was younger. I asked her why she was wearing my bracelet. She then started yelling at me about how I always criticized her. My dad and brother stepped in to point out (correctly) that she was being unfair, and the next thing you know she ranted about how we do nothing but criticize her from the minute we wake up, and she knocked over half of the plates and glasses on the table, and threw her tortilla so far across the room that it landed behind the refridgerator.

I'm so glad I'll only be living here for another year.

PS: I was going to post this to deviantart, but I didn't want to burden all my new watchers with my bitching.

More News and Other Things

July 12th, 2009 (05:15 pm)

It turns out I'll be visiting Harvard on the 7th. I hope I don't miss anything important at Wingspan. I hope I have fun.

I finished inking the comic: http://lady-elsewhere.deviantart.com/art/Oh-Kasanoda-129239849

Also, I've been considering posting more about my inner weirdness, as it is. I'm not all that odd, but I worry sometimes. Sometimes it's fun, but other times you worry about making something sound weirder than it actually is.

In case anyone wants to know...

June 9th, 2009 (09:43 pm)

Just for the record, I know it's been a long, long, long time since I posted a condensed episode. I just wantet to appologise (again) and say that I was probably busy with one of the following:

1. Junior Stuff
2. College Stuff
3. Stuff For My Original Comic Which I Am Working On (but really need to do more scripting for *stress* stress*)

And, of course,

4. Procrastination (at least I'm honest.)

My laptop being dead and more or less gone hasn't helped much, either.

I MAY get a chance to do something over the summer whilst procrastinating from scripting my comic, and otherwise you can find me on deviantart here (since I don't blog here as much as I should): http://lady-elsewhere.deviantart.com/
