"...because when you have a conversation with anyone else, it's like an exchange, right? You offer something up and they offer something. With writers we exchange disorders... it's like, 'Okay, what do YOU have?'"

-conversation with me and probably one of my closest friends, Justin, at a diner.

That's all.
Hey everyone!

My friend Shaun has put up a site to accept donations to help me pay the cost of my tuition in Ireland; please help me out by checking out the site!! You don't have to make a donation, but there may be rewards if you do :D ;) :heart:

the url, btw, is
So, I turned 19 like two days ago. Woo. Last year as a teenager.

I had to quit my job at Cold Stone--they just weren't providing hours, or reasons for why I wasn't getting any hours, so I gave up and moved on. Working 3 days a week for my uncle, moving that up to five days a week soon, which is good. He's letting me varnish a violin, any colour and any way that I want. I don't get to keep it--I don't think--but it's become a treasure already. :heart:

I suddenly live at the Exeter diner. Literally, I'm there like 3-4 days a week. I just love being out late, and wrapped up in conversation, drinking mug after mug of tea. It feels so... classic, you know? So fabulous. I just wish I could fight through this writer's block and get some real... verbiage going on. Oh well, all things in time, I suppose.

Help Dee go to Ireland?

Pleeeeease click on the link and check out the information; I'm selling products for Home Interiors to raise money for me to study at University College Cork, Ireland, and 50% of everything I sell goes to fund my tuition, for which I have to raise about $6000. My stepdad is willing to scan the catalog in, and even if you're elsewhere and want to order something, we're willing to work around it.

Monetary donations are also accepted; I have a PayPal account ;) [just kidding!!!]

but yeah, if I don't raise that money, I don't go, so I'm doing some internets advertising. Whee!

Freshman Year Cumulative GPA: 3.67. I ROCK.

happy new year, my darlings!

i didn't make any resolutions, unfortunately, aside from letting go of self-doubt and second guessing myself. and i'm going to attempt not to procrastinate, which is why my laundry is spinning around.

Eisley - Room Noises
Sinéad O'Connor - i do not want what i haven't got

Also, new dvd's:

The Princess Bride
The Breakfast Club
Finding Neverland
Garden State ['cept my sister's bf needs to um...fix it...]

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

:heart::glomp: :icondanhauk: for the last eight DVD's. my sister is so lucky ;P
oh, and of course much :heart::hug::glomp: to her [her icon would be here, except she doesn't HAVE ONE so it's BORING] for my new haircut and shiny highlights. :D

so okay, here is the question of the week

obviously everyone knows about the whole jark controversy, etc, etc. my concern is something that `justthorne pointed out--the Submission Agreement.

Basically, we belong to deviantart in more than one sense of the word. It's almost frightening, you know? Our photographs can be [mis]used in anyway the Company deems appropriate, our names, our artwork, and we can't argue with them on that.

I'm not sure I want to be a part of a site that's not going to protect my work. Shouldn't that be a really big concern? Protecting us? Or are we just feeding the Corporate Machine?

Something to think about, I guess...

Anyway, it kind of makes me want to delete my stuff, but i have so much here and I'm not sure where I would take it all. The risk is the same pretty much anywhere. Still, I'm thinking of hiding all my work for a little while. It isn't right. None of this is right. I've pretty much lost my faith in dA.

I guess I just feel a little betrayed. Like I've signed off my soul and can't get it back. Oops.

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me

Caro called at 7:11AM to say happy official birthday [i was born at 7:11 AM] and I was totally incoherent, having just woken up. But it was so wonderful of her to call. We're having lunch today.

So I'm 18 years old now--they can hold me legally accountable for all my mess-ups! YAY!

Tuesday I'm hopping a bus to NYC to see some old friends; it should be a really good time and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm in a really great mood. Which is unusual for a birthday. :)
ok so work was wicked stressful today and i almost cried a lot.

i feel obligated to post an entry because devart gifted me subscriber status for a week. OMG I LOVE IT I WANT IT SOMEONE BUY DEVART FOR ME KTHXBYE. :D

maybe i should try to whore my work some.

who wants to be my literary pimp? XD jk---mostly.

*girlish moment of screamy joy*

i have never been so happy. ever.
my mom left me (and my sis) a note this morning
that says "Girls, we need to have a TALK."
and later "I am not happy with BOTH of you, in fact, I am quite sad about it."
usually i am quite aware when i've done something wrong
according the morals my mom instilled in me like my whole life
but right now, i'm so confused, it's scary.
i didn't do anything wrong! and i don't know why she's upset!
*doesn't want to be punished for something she didn't do*
as i said to lyz on our way up to pub last night

goddamn i love my life

(at the moment, anyway.)

wow, my head just did this weird thing
and i felt like i almost passed out
i can tell work today is going to be fun
who wants to give me a hug?
