I am never on here anymore except to comment on other individuals' art; however, I have realized that a journal update is pretty mandatory, considering my last one was almost a year ago.  

The Year In Review:

School was very stressful, but very, very rewarding.

I perhaps will not show up again for another year, but until then, I would like to say that I am happy to be involved in a community of such profoundly talented artists.
So this unfortunately requires that I post a new journal entry...right.
Here we gooooo....

The musical baton was passed on to me by ~silentglaive.

~insanepenguins
*uma
and I can't think of a fifth person...how sad is THAT?!
-----------------------------------------
Sooooo anyway, a brief update.  School is over, which means the fiery blaze of hell has receded.  At least for the summer.  My current major project (and when I say major, I totally mean major) is a professional website for my dad's friend.  It is coming along very nice, but it is taking a lot longer than I anticipated.  In other news, last friday was my birthday woohooo....I went to PF Chang's and it was very delicious.  Then I went to best buy to buy a new digital camera with my birthday money so that was very exciting.  And I still have money left over!  wooohoo.  Also my new cell phone finally came yesterday....so woohoo and it's in color!  It's so exciting.  Welllllll, all for now.  Maybe I'll post screenshots of this website later or something......

errr yay for me?

Thu Apr 21, 2005, 2:02 PM
Uhhhh...okay........

So I came on deviantart today and it was all like, Congratulations! and apparently I just randomly won a free subscription on devart for seven days...and....yea.....not that i need it...

So, i got my site up and running.  It's a writing site with a lot of old stuff.  There's some new stuff too (which is soooo much better than the old stuff) but you can check it out for yourself.

astrae.sublunary.com

Tell me what you think.
So, yea, it's my first day of summer vacation!!  Know what that means???

...BOREDOM!!!!!!!!!!

But besides that, it means more time to work on art and stuff!!!  I want to start another site over the summer despite the fact that I know it will end up dying by the beginning of the school year in the fall.  But who cares!  Let's be spontaneous!!!  *does spontaneous...things*
so yea, it's 6:23 in the morning and I just took a shower!  Very exciting, seeing as I like never take showers in the morning.  But this time I had the chance to because my dad and sister left for Texas early this morning (it's my sister's first plane ride, going to be very amusing) and my mom dropped them off there.  So I can't get a ride to school, ergh.  That means I have to take the bus, which is evil.  Well I better go now and worry over a huge test I have in civics today...an essay the first half and regular test second half.  I think I have my entire essay memorized, but I just hope that I don't freak out and forget it.  And yea.  k bye now
So yeah.  I haven't submitted anything for a long long time.  Hmm.  Well, right now I do not have the time, so yer gonna have to wait until school ends, mwahaaaaaaaaaa.  Yup.

But here's a plus...the first day of summer vacation is my birthday!  yay!  lol.
I'm thinking of opening a site where I can put my poetry on maybe ish.  A friend conveniently told me -- after a short session of complaints I delivered about how much I suck -- that I am more lingually- and musically-oriented in my art and form of expression.  which is true i suppose.  none of you -- except like two people -- have actually seen my writing, so MOO.  in the mean time, enjoy my "unconventional" artwork.  :P
Someone by the name of deadums left me a message today that made me happy:

"wow, i'm simply loving your gallery. Such pretty pretty images...I can't use photoshop to save my life.

You are something for me to aspire to. Much love."

heh.  :)
Obscenity Review for "Cabin Fever"

Verbal:
     F*ck - 73
     Shit - 6
     Slut - 1
     Asshole - 1

Visual
     Sexual Activity - 2 complete scenes
     Sexually Suggestive Activity - Approximately 4 scenes
     Sexually Suggestive Spoken Material - 3

and might I add that Cabin Fever was the dumbest movie I have ever seen.  The quality of the movie is so poor, it's not worthy of description.
heh i just realized i skipped over some things by accident, like grade.  it says ninth but should be in eleventh?  that's not right.  that was the person before me's answer ish.  meh i'm sure no one noticed anyway :P

if you want to listen to it, go to www.geocities.com/slrfirestorm… and click on sonate.mid.  i warn you though to not listen to anything in that directory.  everything else i made when i was trying to figure out how to use my program, and their melodic quality is quite poor.  so listen to SONATE only, got it?  k.

byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ya'll.
I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

I installed a cd-rw drive on our old computer and it WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!  The last time I did something like that, I kinda destroyed their computer, heh.  although, it wasn't really MY fault, best buy just didn't tell me they needed a drive controller card thingy.  anyway, i'm off to be obsessed!!!!!!!!
yooooooo people.

i'm bored.  yuppppppppppppp.  ummmmmmmmm...*tries to think of something to put in here* oh, i know!  i'm yet to submit something decent to deviantart yay me!  okay i suck, I know, get used to it :P

byeeeeeeeeeee now as i drift into the land of uber boredomnessousitness.

MOO

excuse me while i fume.

ugh i swear, deviantart just isn't worth it anymore.
Yo.

I'm really bored and i decided that i should probably do some sort of follow up to my "Sick" entry from last friday, seeing as i am no longer sick.

So yea.

So....um....
...................yea, chicken....sure is....good....eh?

Work with me here.

Oh, and looking for a good laugh?  Then check out www.weebls-stuff.com/toons/29/ it is quite humorous.

Well, i am off to think of more ideas for my sudden inspiration to write a novel.  I almost wrote one a couple months ago, i got pretty far actually, but then i lost interest.  Hmm the longest I've ever gone is eighty-eight pages...can I go longer?!?!  MWAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA I'M NOT CRAZY
ughhhhhhh i got so sick last night...stomach flu.  i was up half the night and very restless.  i'm staying home today though trying to get better for my concert tonight, but blehhhhhhhhhh.  
Yay!

I'm having fun with my nifty new french dictionary i got for my computer so i can resume my french studies from last year.  apparently, i passed a sample of the college entrance exam!  my friend told me that usually people that are at level three only pass that test, and i was only like at the beginning of level two!  lol i'm such a language geek.  but yea.  so bye.
