I've been wanting to write a new journal for a few days now, but it was reading about the new journal editing features dA has put into place that really got me doing it! I love the new editor! It's so easy to use
It's still a bit annoying that I have to go edit a past journal entry in order to find and copy the div tag for the main area of the journal skin then paste it into the new entry, but everything else has improved so much that it's a lot less of a hassle to do so.
So far spring semester has been alright. I had my first exam for both my art history and my Japanese culture class on the same day. I'm very confident about my Japanese exam, but the art history one...well, at least the professor drops the lowest exam grade
Both classes seem to be the type where going to class and taking notes is all you need to do in order to pass the exams. I just missed a few days more of art history than Japanese because it's my earlier class and it also doesn't grade for attendance. That's why I didn't do as well on this first exam, I think. It's a lot easier to get up after work for class this semester, since the classes are later, but it's still so difficult to rouse myself early enough to not be late or miss class! >_>
I've realized recently that I haven't done any art for myself in a very long time. The most recent piece I've submitted to dA that wasn't a commission, gift, club requirement, or schoolwork was my Edgeworth tattoo art back in October 2009! I'm glad to have a constant stream of work (especially commissions; thank you! Keep 'em coming
) but it makes me feel a little...hollow, I guess. Not to worry though, I will HAVE to start on more tattoo art for myself very soon! I canceled my last few tattoo appointments last year. The first few were because I was still healing from surgery, but the last one I canceled simply because I wasn't able to get anything finished for my tattoo artist to use. That was thanks to school art projects taking up all my art time. Now I have absolutely no excuse! Diego and Mia, prepare to be drawn!!!
Saturday into today has been quite productive ^_^ I completed more of my family tree on ancestry.com, groomed both cats and both dogs in my household (including brushing their teeth!), vacuumed the greater part of the house, and replenished the fish tank water & changed the fish tank filter. Now here I am writing this entry I've been meaning to. After this it'll be time for a walk with the dogs and shumphrey
then commission work, more house cleaning, and a trip to the post office! (I got a dog DNA kit to find out what Kenshi is so I can't wait to mail it and get the results ASAP!) Somewhere among those last TO DOs there will be sleep, but who knows when... XD
