Oh my god guys I am literally covered in paint.  It's been a while.


I've changed my tumblr url recently, so I thought I'd give that an update here.  You can still get to my blog through the old url too.


and for art

I also run an Adventure Time theory blog

And lately I've been Livestreaming

Conrad is my favorite character from my favorite (DWJ) book.  Everyone give the Chrestomanci series a read, PLEASE!  


KATSUCON starts this Friday!  My friend and I have a secured a panel for late Friday night (subject to change, but unlikely).  Keep a look out for our Adventure Time Theories panel and come say hi!  We're going to have a meet up at some point, but I'll have to check back on that with Azusa.

Keep updated on our blog adventuretimeconspiracies.tumb…

I'm changing my cosplay line up

Friday: Finn the Human (for the millionth time gah)

Saturday: Isana from Oumagadoki Doubutsuen (Crazy Zoo???)

Sunday: ????????


In personal news:

I've started  a new semester in college.  I'm taking 2 art history classes, and both are pretty great.  I'm getting involved with the radio station too, and will be applying for a job as a DJ this week.

Other things: I wonder if anyone who actually will read this remembers when I obsessed over Count of Monte Cristo.  Well, recently I've had a major thirst for dumb and fancy French men so I started reading again.  I'm actually surprised I had so much trouble with it before,  because now it's pretty easy to read.  

I've also started getting into a number of series, which is something that hasn't happened to me in a long time.  Watched Sleepy Hollow and The Mindy Project this past season, and the first season of American Horror Story.  I'm almost done watching Daria (which is ridiculously good) and Lupin III Part 2 (Red Jacket). 

And mangas.  Boy did I read mangas over winter break. 

Billy Bat (this is ongoing), Jojo's Bizarre Adventures (only made it into part 2), ZATCH BELL (<3 so perfect I can't even say...reached ch 200)

but I didn't get around to reading some that I started ages ago, like Oyasumi Punpun...and some others that I can't even remember right now.

My friends and I have "anime night" every Friday--we've been working on His and Her Circumstances for MONTHS.  It's short, old, and cheaply made, but really truly good most of the time.  Yukino and Arima's relationship kills me with how sweet it is.

Ok I'm done rambling.  If you really care about what I like, my tumblr is linked above.

I used to write all my journal entries as arithmetic problems, back when I wrote journals.


It's been well over a year since I had a new journal here so I might as well fix that (with this seemingly long journal). 
I uploaded two new artworks this week (after a year long art-funk) and even cleared the ever-accumulating art and messages in my inbox.  I do go on deviantART regularly, I'm just inactive ((especially compared to 4 years ago when I was never not on dA)).  I've forgotten almost everything I know about dA's use of html formatting, but it's nice to see some built in formatting tools at the top of this page.

If you wanna know where I'm most active online

it's tumblr

and for art

I also run an Adventure Time theory blog

And lately I've been Livestreaming

I should let you guys know when I'm streaming I guess, but I don't want it to remove this journal--I'll figure things out.

Expect some livestreaming this weekend!!


News about Katsucon:

I'm going this year (like every year)

But this year I'm hoping to cohost an Adventure Time theory panel.  I haven't heard if I got the slot, but I'm sure I will soon and I'll post that here.

I've cosplayed mostly Adventure Time characters over the past few years (LSP, Finn, Fancy Finn) and a few obscure manga characters (go read Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and Oumagadoki Doubutsuen)

This year I'm cosplaying

  • Amethyst from Steven Universe
  • Toby/Torubi from Unico and the Island of Magic
  • Zacharie from OFF (game)

So yeah, looking forward to getting all three costumes done over winter break (feel my optimism)



Uni(co)--A life update

Like my pun?  I'm cosplaying an antagonist from the second Unico movie and I'm finishing my first semester at a Uni(versity) tomorrow! 

hah (I'm tired)

Anyway, I recently declared Public Relations as my major, and I'm soon going to add Art History.

After all these years of "I don't want to be an artist, but I want an art career" (repeat ad infinitum), I've finally figured things out to the point where I'm semi-comfortable about my future.

This may not lead me to my dream job, but I'm happy enough for now. 

Anyway, I like learning about art more than I like making it.


That's all for now, folks.

I wonder if anyone actually read this whole thing.  I hope so.

I want to be a little more active here, at least with art and periodic journal updates.

See you space cowboy....

Question one:
Does deviantART load very slowly for anyone else?
I guess it could be because I usually have around 30 tabs open

follow up question: Does deviantART load very slowly for anyone else who has around 30 tabs open?

Question two:
I recently bought a bamboo connect tablet.  Was this a good choice? I hear bamboos are reliable

follow up question: Has anyone else had trouble getting pen pressure to work on their bamboo tablet?  If so, can you help me out?  I cannot get pen pressure to work, and I'm still looking for methods.

Question three:
I've been doing a bunch of research on colleges since school let out.  Where do you go?  Where have you gone? What schools do you like?  What schools have you looked at?

Question four:
What happened to Niko's pchat? I don't know how long it's been down, but the last time I used it was only about a month ago.  It seems that the servers been down for a while.

thanks everybody

ps: I am far, far, FAR, more active here in case any of you want to look at recent art

♣Must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
♣Legitimately tag 10 people and post their icons on the journal.
♣Go to their pages and tell them you tagged them.
♣No tag backs and no cheating like "you are tagged if you read this."

1) I love buying books.
2) I don't really like to spend my money.
3) I need a new powercord for my computer.  This is the 4th time.
4) I own a ukulele and a guitar, yet I can't play them.
5) I am cosplaying Austria and (hopefully) Neuro Nougami at Otakon.  I will die of heat exhaustion if we get stuck outside again.

7) I love my sister.  She is the cutest.
8) I wish there were more hours in the day.
9) I want a dog, but without the poop and the smell.

1)So guys, I've already done 2 projects on Jane Eyre, how much longer are we going to drag this out? We've been working on it for at least a month and a half!!

Anyway, for my project, I'm going to recreate Jane's paintings from the book, which means about 3 or 4 paintings.  I'm really looking forward to do them, except I have until Friday.  I could have picked a different assignment, but I wouldn't have the same motivation.  Maybe he'll give an extension?

2)Also guys, I just watched the first episode of Trigun.  OMIGOD WHERE HAS THIS SHOW BEEN ALL MY LIFE!?  My dad has been telling me to watch it recently and it's awesome.

3)And I've been obsessed with Les Miserables recently.  I've listened to the sound track over a dozen times by now.  And I started playing tetris again, it's so much fun

4)the weather here's been gross lately.  Luckily no snow like they predicted, but we've had rain.  And it's cold.  At the beginning of march there was about 3 days of decent weather, then it went back to 30 degrees.  Since it's April, it's just going to rain more but it should at least be warmer.

5)Right now I'm just waiting for my friend to pick me up.  We're going to an art show, but she was supposed to come at 2 and now she's 20 minutes late.  We were going to go yesterday, but she fell asleep.
Wonder where she is

6) (tumblr) I took a little break but I'll start posting art again soon.  Gotta get back on the Hetalia tumblr challenge and all that

7) and watchers! talk to me! say hi! I'm too shy to reach out but if you start I'll answer!

I don't have much up yet, only a few doodles and things.   I hadn't actually used my blog until a few days ago

***itsabbeyROAR had talked about starting up tumblr rp blogs for Hetalia, but it kinda fell through.  I'm totally willing to do it (though I don't plan to spend a lot of time on it) and I have a lot of ideas for making one as Rome.  If anyone's interested, please let me know

Today I walked around school with a Burger King crown poised on my head and a large name tag that said "Romulus" hung around my neck ((because my group won the Roman Kings game in Latin class, other kids wore the crowns today, too)).  You may now address me as Romulus if you so choose
And my art teacher was extremely impressed with my surrealism hw and said she loved the way I draw >w<.  That.  That.
It's at school now, but I'm looking forward to uploading it.  My inspiration and idea were nothing short of weird.

And I warn those who haven't seen it to watch the Hetalia movie with caution.  I was disappointed in it, and I had low expectations to begin with.  I laughed hard at a few parts, but other than that it was pretty bizarre.

And lastly, would someone explain to me what Homestuck is and why it suddenly became so popular?  What's the appeal?

I screamed, got angry, and flushed it down the toilet
which caused my mom to wake up
I said to her, "sorry for screaming" and she replied, "you screamed?"

2) I have no cosplays put together and Katsucon's in less than 2 weeks

3) okay let's do my fav animes, ready?
Black Cat                          
Ouran High School Host Club        
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
Cromartie HS

4) I have a ginormous sketch dump that I'm putting together of my school drawings
if it goes well, it'll be up this week

5) I do a pretty decent imitation of Finland's dub voice, much to my friends' amusement (and a little bit of HRE's dub voice, too)

6) I bought a Finn hat yesterday

7) I really need to clean my room

8) I have a new opinion of alpacas…

9) I love colorful socks

10) this has been bothering me for days… Doesn't the song they're singing have the same tune as something else?  It's too familiar
please, let me know

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to whichever applies to you.  I hope everyone is warm and safe.  I'm super excited because it's going to snow tomorrow (maybe) and on Christmas Eve (possibly)!  Not that I particularly like cold weather, being one who tends to get cold very easily, I just like snow.


Anyway, I don't know if anyone noticed,but I had a kiriban set but it was going to line up with Christmas, so I canceled it (:C) but my next one will be 5555 or something like that.  
On the other hand, I had been planning on opening up requests in the spirit of the season!  Ask me to draw something for you! Fanart, OCs, whatever! There are only a few conditions

1) I may not be able to get to every request (not that I expect to get that many anyway, this is just preemptive).  I have many art projects and things I plan to do lined up and I'm only off of school for little over a week, not to mention all the school work and family things.  I will try to get them done though!
2) Since they are requests, I feel that it's okay for me to decline if it's of something I object to.  I'm a pretty open person, but there are things that I don't want to/can't draw.


And I want to just say thank you for all the favs on those last 2 Hetalia fanarts I did.  I really didn't expect them to get that much attention.  I mean, anything that gets more that 7 favs is kinda a big deal to me, not that I look to be popular on dA


FEATURES ARE STILL OPEN!  I'm not even close to 18 yet so comment and I'll feature you (and you feature me back).
DON'T BE SHY, I'll feature you even if you don't watch me!

Today marks the day i joined dA, one year ago when i was arguing with my parents over a username (my dad chose this one i think)
And thanks, dA, for the celebratory premium membership ad, i feel loved

Anyway, i just wanna say that i had a great first year.  I was so exposed to art every single day that i feel like i improved so much in a short time....and I'm more interested in art than i was before.  So yeah, thanks dA for the great opportunities, i think I've actually developed a taste in art.

And sorry guys for 2 journals in 2 days.  I had planned on writing a journal when my accounts first birthday came around, but i hadn't thought much about WHAT to write....eheh

(((can i have more pictures in the comments, please?)))

Oh, and about the pictures i uploaded this weekend, I'm planning on uploading better images later this you can expect that (i should have done it today but i forgot.

1) why is it that i often see girls start dancing (including myself) when they pass by my house?

2) Scissor Sisters.  I love Scissor Sisters.…

3) I began watching a cool anime called Gankutsuou which is loosely based off of the Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas.  I went out and bought a copy of the Count of Monte Cristo, and discovered that this book is over 1000 pages long.  Heh

4) I go back to school tomorrow.  wooo

5) because i was writing this journal and listening to music, i didn't hear the timer go off in the oven, so i really hope dinner isn't over cooked.

6) ah, i saw a commercial on tv today that Funimation was redesigning their channel and getting a new line up on shows.  i am honestly looking forward to this (especially baccano omg)
here's their new schedule…

7) okay, so my dad called over and said my sister was walking back home from the neighbors,so I went downstairs to open the door for her.  Our door is half window, so i hid down on the floor so she wouldn't see me from the window when she rang the door bell.  When she did ring the doorbell, i slid up and peeked over the solid part of the door.  I scared the crap out of her, but it was hilarious.

So I needed to find my student id for Otakon tonight or else I couldn't get in
The thing is, I'm the type who would throw my id away because I didn't like the picture
Yesterday, I pretty much tore apart my room looking for it (well, my room has been in need of some cleaning for a while now) and couldn't find it anywhere
And all today, I've been cleaning up my disaster of a room, and my id had not shown up
Then, a few minutes ago, my mom comes upstairs and says "did you check the purse you used for homecoming?"
No, I did not check that purse, which I last used in OCTOBER

That's so frustrating!  My sister is mad at me too, because i made her help clean and lift things
To think that I didn't look for my id in the most obvious place

now i have to go an clean it up
boy, i'm tired
