I'm much happier now, and that journal was depressing me.
I just made my 1st social psych exam my BITCH.
Not looking forward to work today, but you can't have everything in life.

Random StuffHappy 2012!!
Yeah, I know I'm a bit late, but I didn't have ANY time during the holidays, so I didn't post anything about MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY NEW YEAR. Best gift? Best food item? Best drunken episode (if you partied)? Share!
I got some great stuff from my parents, including a new Canon Powershot camera and an absolutely GORGEOUS leather bound study bible with my name on the cover. I'm putting off the process of highlighting and flagging my favorite verses because I don't want to ruin the perfection. My family is not so much into sit-down dinners as we are into appetizers and desserts and wandering around with wine in one hand and munchies in the other. The advantage of this is that you feel less guilty about eating a lot, because you only ever have one or two in front of you. The disadvantage.....well, I think that goes without saying. I was stuffed. And my cousin kept ref

I love country music so goddamn much.
Blake Shelton is ridiculously hot. Seriously, have you ever seen a pair of eyes like that? I think not. Yummy. :iconhurrplz: Brad Paisley is smexy to. And I'll try to keep the "he's hot" comments to a minimum.
Good God, what the HELL is Carrie Underwood wearing????? It's like a badly folded napkin with scales. :iconwthplz:
AHAHA TIM AND FAITH BARBIES!!!!!! That is GREAT. Ah, country music stars always have such a great sense of humor. Tim and Faith are cracking up at this.

Oh, Carrie, that dress is MUCH better.

HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!So I am typing this with one hand because my left currently needs to stay up. I was trimming the tulle skirt that is par of my costume (a ladybug) when i missed and got my palm pretty good. Whoops. Apparently Halloween can be dangerous even before booze is involved.
So now, I still have a good amount of my costume to finish before tomorrow night, i am incapacitated, and i look silly with an ace bandage around my hand for nothing more than a cut.
What are YOU doing for Halloween? Costume? Alcoholic beverage of choice (lol i'm terrible)?
This is a short post because it's hard to type like this. Night!!
DeviantArt Things that Annoy MeI would like to discuss, for a few moments, things that drive me CRAZY in art or fanfiction. Warning: I am opinionated, blunt, and slightly rude. Read at your own risk. Debates are allowed, but not nasty remarks.
People calling Hermione "Mione." No one EVER called that in the books. She wouldn't put up with it. Whoever came up with nickname started a horrible fad. I instantly stop reading ANYTHING that has this in it, no matter how good otherwise.
Artists who draw only in anime style. Completely anatomically NOT EVEN CLOSE. Personally, I don't enjoy anime shows, and I don't really care about fanart for them. But when you start cluttering my Harry Potter and Disney Groups with your anime s**t, I get mad.
OOC. Out Of Character. 'Nuff said.
Not understanding how the society works. Very close to OOC. It's like OOC for the sett
Star Wars MARATHONFor Labor Day weekend, there was a TV marathon of all 6 Star Wars movies, overandoverandover. And I watched it. For almost the entire 3 days STRAIGHT. And I also spent an excessive amount of time on Wookiepedia, looking up the finer points of, well, everything.
My favorite discoveries were those about the history of lightsabers, lightsaber dueling and related topics. For example, Qui Gon favored Form IV of the seven forms of lightsaber dueling, which was a mostly offensive technique marked by sweeping, graceful movements and a fluidity that made one move seem part of the next. Yoda also favored this form. Interestingly, part of the reason Qui Gon died was because he was fighting Darth Maul on catwalks, and did not have the room to maneuver that he required.
Another interesting detail is that Obi Wan favored Form III, while Anakin favored Form V. These two were essentially each other's opposit
Plot bunniiiiiiieeeeessssI swear, they're BREEDING. And bouncing around in my head. And distracting me. It makes it impossible to get ANYTHING done.
SHUT UUUPPPPPPP!!!!!!!! I have homework!!!!!
New Story SeriesI haven't given up on "Soundtrack of Lily and James." It will be downsized, and done out of order. My original plan was 10 songs, I've got 3 posted and 1 more almost done. I don't know how many I'll do total.
On THAT note, I have another idea.
I want to write a series of one-shots about our favorite Harry Potter couples. Not going to lie, I sort of got the idea from a fantastic author on Fanfiction.net. Her's is about the couples from Tamora Pierce's universe of Tortall, and about the ladies telling their men that they're pregnant. My idea is proposals.
Warning--it will be very fluffy.
But that's okay.
I will ONLY do cannon couples. Sorry. And I was toying with the idea of doing a one-sided Severus/Lily fantasy, but then I remembered that guys don't fantasize about the proposal, that's us women. And we do, guys. Just saying.
So, if you have something you'd like to s
Stupid Housing Office That Doesn't Give a S**tSo, I haven't posted in a month. And tonight is as good a night as any to remedy that.
I moved from my summer dorm to my fall dorm last weekend. Tonight will be my fourth night in my new room. And guess what? Since I moved in, I have woken up every morning with new fresh, itchy bug bites on my feet and ankles. Yep. My bed has fleas. Or bedbugs. But my internet research leads me to fleas.
THAT IS SO GROSS.
Ugh. I am not going to be able to sleep tonight. Went to Home Depot and got spray, tore by bed apart but couldn't find them, doused the mattress in spray, and my mom bought me a mattress case that she'll give me when I go home this weekend. And I'll wash all my laundry in hothothot water. HOPEFULLY that will get rid of them.
But the best part of this whole drama?
HOUSING DOESN'T CARE.
Seriously. I pay an arm and a leg to live on campus, and th
It All Ended There... *SPOILER WARNING*I went to see a midnight showing last night, and I can't even describe the EPICNESS.
My friend and I used 3D paint to make tee shirts, which I braved the unseasonably cold weather to show off. I did my nails (as I already showed you in a picture) and made Deathly Hallows cookies, which I'll upload a pic of for you to admire my totally awesome cookie-decorating skills (they were recognizable and tasted good, what more can you ask?).
Me and a friend drove for two hours back to my hometown to see it with my two best friends from high school, one of whom happened to turn 21 yesterday. And epic levels of junk food consumption commenced. Got into the theater at like 8:30 so we had a lot of time to kill. Thank goodness someone though to bring cards.
Anyway, the actual movie. DUDE. They did NOT cut corners. They knew they could NOT fuck up on the last Harry Potter movie.

old journal entry from winter:
uaggh! I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.

The Inks of Ivywood [CLOSED]image by Emete
The Inks of Ivywood is now CLOSED. This means you can no longer receive the 'inktober bonus' of 200 PD. You are still welcome to do the prompts if you desire but please submit them to the appropriate folder (I.E. 'Trainers and their pokemon', 'just pokemon', etc.)
The folder is all caught up now, if we happen to have missed a deviation you can now post into the 'Missing PD Journal' to be looked at.
Tiers are still being rewarded so if you haven't been replied to, please be patient and we will get to you within the week.
Thank you for participating!
Read below for an example of Paint Splatter! You can also look up images on google by typing in 'Paint Splatter', also thinking like a blood splatter is also a good example
It appears that deviantART crashed late last night, when the time was switching over from October 19th to October 20th and because of it, people couldn't submit on time. Due to this as it was no
deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
Our Book on Evolution: Signed Copies Available
Just over a year ago, myself and Agahnim reached a major milestone in our long-term goal of evolution education and outreach, which served the basis for starting our DA group Domain-of-Darwin over 11 years ago. We published our first book! Published by Inkwater Press and titled God’s Word or Human Reason?, the book has been available on Amazon since January of last year.
I am now offering direct purchases of signed, inscribed hardcovers that are personalized with a drawing of a bird or dinosaur of your choice. They are $40 (U.S. and Canada) or $50 (everywhere else), shipping included.

DO NOT ATTACK OR APPROACH HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR EFFORT, BUT IT COULD GET YOU BANNED. MY ADVICE IS JUST AVOID HIM, BLOCK IF NECCESSARY. DO NOT DO ART TRADES/REQUESTS FOR THIS GUY.
It is about fucking time I brought all of this to light. You stopped talking to me and un-watched me, so I can only assume you want nothing else to do with me. I don't have to defend you anymore. We're not friends, and now it's time to warn others so that they don't have to go through the same BULLSHIT you put me and so many other people through.
