Your Lightsaber is Blue

Blue is often associated with depth and stability.
It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom,
confidence, and truth.

What Colored Lightsaber Would You Have?

wow... Saskatoon was awesome!! The wedding was great, Lory even greater.. :) I'm too tired to continue now.


I've convinced myself that I need a new username.... think of it as spring cleaning in the winter.... I'm rather liking "teh_rubes"... anyone have anyother suggestions??

wee... updating time! [06 Nov 2004|11:13am]
[ mood | bored ]

Life = teh psycho

yeah, that pretty much sums up my life... and my lack of updates :)

Erik has arrived from the frozen north of BC, and seems to fit right into our family. He has an awesome warped sense of humour.. it's alot of fun. (for those of you who don't know, we might be billeting a 10 year old boy named Erik, he's staying for a week to see if he likes it here, and will then decide whether he's staying or not :)

We're doing another drama for church now, it's pretty awesome. I get to be a flag waver, it's to the song "Jesus, be the Center". Very fun and exciting to see new stuff happening in the church!

Wow.. new contraption on my braces... so much fun.. I'll see if I can draw a pic...

Ah... I downloaded GIMP on Isaac's (my brother) computer (with his permission of course) and It's so nice to be reaquainted! :) Just need to dld my brushes now! :)

Anyways, on to the lovely drawing I did myself on the computer! :)

Read more...Collapse )

Anyways, I'd better get off here. I really need to transfer some files from computer to computer, because I'm going crazy from lack of resources on GIMP!

of DVD's and halloween [31 Oct 2004|06:51pm]
[ mood | blah ]

wow.. dad came home yesterday with a DVD player... how wacked is that?? lol Apparently it was only 30$... must be a new something or other coming out to be that cheap! We watched Hidalgo last night... Viggo didn't really wow me with his hottness or acting abilities... although he never does.. :) The fight scenes were extremly tacky too... I'd probably give it a 2.5 out of 5... wasn't that good. My parents also watched Laws of Attraction today.. but I wasn't really interested... Pierce Brosnan scares me a bit, and Gimp/new lj layouts was calling me. :)

Pretty New Layout at amiableicons.. took a good chunk of time to make and blend! Features Keira, Natalie and Kida.. the best of the best :)

Went to church this morning... it was Pastor Appreciation Sunday which was kinda neat to see cause Hugo and Connie are amazing with everything they do... they deserve to be recognized! They had 3 Huge cakes, I had 2 pieces, being the pig I am.

Also got a rocking new icon from duncatra. It's been a long time since I've used someone elses icon.. man... But PB and SW together.. ? It can't be resisted!

I can't really think of anything else to say... I'm gonna go read some more Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It's an AMAZING book/movie series.. I'd advise you to read/watch it. When I'm done, be sure to see some icons of it... I love Elizabeth character.. she's awesome!

Happy Halloween!

today is.... a day [30 Oct 2004|10:43am]
[ mood | sore ]

Wow... I'm having a bit of a wacko day today! I haven't updated in so long.. sorry, but school's been crazy busy! Anyways, I'm sure you'll forgive me as I've got a couple pictures!! :)

Hmm.. where should I start?? Well for starters, we're having a 10 year old boy named Eric come and stay at our house until Christmas.. maybe longer, which is pretty cool.. I've never had a younger sibling before.. should be interesting! He lives very far north in BC and doesn't have a proper school to go to, so he's coming to get a good year of school in! I'm rather excited, although I have never met him before and it may be interesting to be on the other side of the younger sibling-pranks playing thing.. :)

ouch... I went to go and put The Bunners out (my rabbit for all you uneducated ones) and fell down the stairs because they were all icy... smashed my back up good... I'm going to have an awful bruise.. I can tell.. it already hurts like crazy!

Got Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin from the library.. and absoulutely everyone told me to watch the movie... but I had no idea where to get them. I talked to Mrs. Nicholson, the school librarian (who honestly feels like one of my grandparents.. lol) about the movies to see if I could find them... turns out the school owns them! I highly recommend them and the book.. fabulous so far and I can't wait to read more of it! :)

Very Hyped about Sasaktoon! Can't wait to see you all there!! Oo.. just for my own references... sign off (comment) if you're going!! :)

I dyed my hair black the week (photo under cut) supposedly for halloween, then decided I didn't want to be a Geisha but I still love my hair to pieces! Honestly.. I was meant to have black hair! Friday at school I wore a knitted lion hat with a viking hat on top.. the mane made it look like I had a red beard... so I was Eric the Red.. :) Our school mascot is the Vikings. lol Ended up winning best grade 10 costume for the girls too.. all because my beloved Band Geek buddies voted for me :) Band Geeks rule the World. anyways... back to the photos...

Black Haired Ruby and some Hot ShoesCollapse )

last thing.. new layout made from largely editing and varying one of [ ilumine.net's ] downloadable ones... It's awesome, you should check it out! It features the beautiful Natalie Portman!

:) Love Y'all Lots, comment of going to saskatoon,

Just a regular old update... [14 Oct 2004|08:53pm]
[ mood | silly ]

woo! I'm so excited to go on the band trip next weekend! I'm told it's in 100 Mile House, which is, believe it or not, the real name of a town... dorky I know, although "The Pas" is no rave either :) Anyways, we drive down there, do sectionals for a bit, do a huge concert (for which I have the cutest new shoes and skirt, which I will be taking a picture of in the near future, when we get batteries for the camera ), then drive back home, and Sasha and Nikki are going, so that rocks!

I got a bunch of photo copies of a really awesome book of Sasha's that has all the typical pointers for drawing manga/anime faeries in it, and I absolutely love it! I've been experimenting tonight, so expect some cool scans in the near future! I also drew a pretty cool pic of Sasha, Nikki and I in anime-likeness, wearing school unforms, of course.. because what would anime be without them?? :)

Man, I've had so much homework lately, I've had no time for computer, which is very sad! I really miss fooling around with GIMP in my spare time, but now that spare time is non existant, that's a bit difficult!

Did some more pottery after school today, finished off my mug, and made some really neat, artsy-like coasters that I'm very proud of! I really love pottery, it's so relaxing and it unwinds you!

I'm SO excited about Saskatoon, holy moley, I get to see everyone! Isaac's coming from Ottawa, Cynthia and Lory and maybe Brenda, Matt and Jared from The Pas.. it's gonna so much fun!! We're getting a girls room for us psycho ones, so we can stay up all night!

Well, I'm running out of things to say, but I've decided today to let you all in on a little secret... wanna find out??

my little secretCollapse )

takenote_icons! [10 Oct 2004|04:50pm]
[ mood | jittery ]

omigosh, I'm so jittery now! I just applied to takenote_icons and I really don't know if they'll accept me! Here's what I applied with...

I hope I get in!!Collapse )
Yuck, I seriously should learn how to calm down when doing this kindof stuff, honestly, when I go for my first job interview, I'll be a wreck! :)

Anyways, do tell what you think of them, and for those few who are wondering about #3 and #4, they're part of a full set of all the characters of LOST :) which will be out soon hopefully :)


PS: New LOST layout up too... I'm so in love with Claire.. she's the best :)

YAY! [08 Oct 2004|11:35pm]
[ mood | unsure ]

YES!!!! YES YES YES YES YES!!!1!!!!1111


In other news, I've also made some pretty cool Lost icons over at amiableicons, go check [ 'em ] out!

ahhh.. It feels SO good to be done math and not have to worry about it... the cool thing was that I was really nervous the night before I wrote the exam, seriously, I was a wreck, but I decided to go to bible study anyways. We had a small prayer time afterwards and it really rocked because I said "look, I really just need prayer to calm down, then I'll be able to write the test!" So be prayed about it and I felt a bit better knowing that it was in God's hands! I went home and started looking some stuff over and said, "hey, you know, I might not actually fail this exam!!" and I just totally got my confidence back, which made a huge difference on my calmness!! It really rocked! Once again, Super-God has pulled through.. was there ever any doubt? Actually, there unfortunately is on my part alot, which is dopey of me.. but I guess that comes with being human...

I'm super excited about going to Saskatchewan for Kent's wedding and getting to see everyone! My brother's coming from Ottawa and his girlfriend from Manitoba too, which really rocks cause I haven't seen either of them in a long time! Some of my bestest buddies are coming too, and I'm really excited to see them, it's so hard keeping up with long distance relationships like that, I'm pathetic, really...

We got our school pictures today, and I'm not particularly loving mine, because they got a craptastic photographer that made everybodys shoulder's look HUGE because he took the photo straight on. Seriously, if you're going to be paid for taking my photo, do a good job please! </rant>

Went to youth group again tonight and we made movies... it rocked! Ours was a "Fear Factor" mockery and it was quite humourous... I was the annoying host who did retarded things the whole time, I honestly almost peed myself one time when one of the girls burped really loud after eating her "african worms bathing in their own poo" (gummy worms in chocolat syrup). It was quite funny :)

Lately I've been feeling kindof insecure, and It's kindof odd... I mean it's nothing new to have days once and a while, but this whole week I've been feeling like everyones better than me, I have no talent, etc, etc. I usually just say to myself "shut up you know it's not true", but lately I just feel like the little highschool girl who doesn't know who she is or what she's doing. I usually can find reassurance in the fact that my identity is in christ and that's who I am, but lately I'm kinda slow on picking it up, which is kindof frustrating. I suppose it's just a thing I'll get over, probably has something to do with the time of month ;)

Anyways, I'm getting sleepy and I'd better go read now so that I'll get to bed earlier! Love y'all "a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck" as my grandad would say :)

God Bless,

another entry from the void of ruby's mind..... [02 Oct 2004|10:40am]
[ mood | bouncy ]

A note to all...

I've decided that this journal will be public for several different reasons, but if this is abused at all, it won't stay this way. I am doing this on a sort of trial basis. That is All.

actually, it's not all, but whatever

I'm soooo incredibly cheesed. I made a new photobucket account to sort everything out with beautiful folders and all that pretty stuff, and my album was one of the ones that was TOTALLY wiped out. Nothing. Zip. IT'S ALL GONE! So that's why nothing has been showing up on my journal and it drives me bizerk.. bezerk... however you spell that!

Last night, our youth group went to Prince to go do laser tag, but the awesome part was that we there was a HUGE kids play area with ball pits and tunnels and I had just as much fun in it!!! It was AWESOME! I've always been really afraid of ball pits, mainly because of the scary McDonalds stories of people finding pieces of crap in the bottom, but I've over come my fears of it, and I'm all good now! We just ran around the whole night, then went to Boston Pizza, and that was fun too!

I'm SO glad it's the weekend, school has been a bit overwhelming lately, and I miss my computer so much when she's all alone at home and had no one to crash her, but they make that whole not-going-to-school thing illegal, which is kind of annoying... I've made some new Keira Icons, which are alright, but still lacking. Lately I've been feeling like my icon skills really suck, because there are so many better makers out there. I guess I just have to keep on truckin and I'll improve. :)

Anyways, speaking of icons, I think I'll go make some now... for a commenting question....
What are some REALLY good movies you've seen lately or just your alltime favourite movies?? I'd love to hear!

hmmm... [28 Sep 2004|05:13pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Well, I'm not too sure... I'm thinking of making my journal open/public again, but I don't know if I really want to do that.. I'm having mixed thoughts of whether it's a good idea or not...

In other news, I so get to paint my room, which rocks, but now I have to find a good material for a bedspread and pick a paint colour... yay for scaring mum with bright colours! Today at school I ran around putting up posters for pottery, because I'm trying to convince more people to go! I love doing pottery so much, and I'm excited that this Thursday I can do it again after being apart from it the whole summer! It's a very addictive art form, that's for sure! Speaking of art forms, I've decided that my list of art that I'm going to try at some point in my life is going to be enlarged to add on glass-blowing, which I am totally addicted to the idea of. :)

yum, Sarah made chocolate cake the other day... it's awesome! She's on this big kick on learning how to cook lately, she's pro at it.. well, tasted good to me, anyways...

Well, I'd better rap it up...
Just a question for you to comment to... who is your favourite actor/actress?? Do Tell!

Much Love,

Arg! [26 Sep 2004|08:53pm]
[ mood | frustrated ]

Arg... this is driving me crazy!!! Photobucket has been gone for like.. all day now, and I've been making stuff like crazy, and I can't post it, and I'M GOING CRAZY!!!!


no wait.. I've already gone.. a LONG time ago.


Ya, I've gone.

Hmm... I'm bored today... The time is rapidly approaching that I have to take my math exam for the course I was doing correspondence... it sucks. Remind me never to take correspondence again. I have ZERO self-determination to get up and do it, so it's kind of pointless for me to even try, although, I hate mathematics with a passion.. so I really shouldn't judge correspondence courses as a whole for one course. In fact, I'm almost certain that if they had a correspondence "graphic design" course at the school that I'd be doing it right now and every second of the day... :D but then I can't have that can I? They can't decide to make school fun, then everyone would go!! ;)

I finally finished the "Heart of India" series by Linda Chaikin, and now I wish I hadn't because I'm totally lost without carrying the books with me everywhere. I hate that, when you wait so long to finish a book, and when you finally do, you have nothing else to spend your time with... (that's where my friend the Computer comes in... we're buddies).

Anyways, I'd better start getting ready for bed. I've been on the comp so much lately, that I'm sure I'll be hearing about it from a certain mother sometime soon... :)
