099: The Sound of the End

I’m not apologizing. Face the truth, cowards.

✪ Personal Life ✪

  • It’s hot and I hate the sun.
  • Wow, I haven’t done one of these in a while. Um… let’s just say I don’t know what boredom is anymore??? LOL. If there isn’t something I need to do then there is something I want to do. It’s nice. Not complaining at all. I have been spoiling myself something fierce lately, but oddly enough my favorite splurge is the least expensive one. I got a hardcover journal, washi tapes, stickers, a bunch of pretty writing utensils, and started working on the cutest journal of all time. Never underestimate the power of a good journal/diary. I always feel productive when I fill a page up and decorate it with adorable crap. Yeah… Being so in touch with all things creative is really amazing. I am blessed infinitely in that aspect. I cannot imagine a life where I do not have a creative bone in my body. It sounds like hell. D:
  • Momocon with Tiffa, Mark, and Ashley was a blast! I consider it my first real convention experience because the other conventions I went to were not even half as crowded and exciting as Momocon. I really loved it. The cosplays were amazing, the shops ruined me financially (LMAO), and I just loved the energy of the place. Everyone was just showing their passion for their interests. I loved it. I really did. I hope the next convention I go to will be the complete experience. I’ll fight my antisocial ways to do it! I want to go on a road trip and stay in a hotel and go everyday, you know? I’m interested in EXPCon in Florida and Dragon-Con, but we’ll see how that all goes. Either way, I’m gonna make sure I save up a shitload of money this time… and maybe bring a portable chair so we don’t have to eat on the floor again. 😛
  • On to the not-so-good things. A recurring theme of the past year has been death. Death, death, and more death. Sometimes talking about it helps. Sometimes I talk to the wrong people about it and it just makes shit worse. It all depends. *sigh* Let’s just move on to something else…
  • Uh… Did I mention getting a new laptop? I don’t know. I’m just glad to have a laptop that can actually close. LMAO. The last one would snap at the hinges and make scary noises if we tried to close it. Then again, it’s like… ten years old. It still works and everything, but I have to carry it like a newborn or something because the slightest thing can make it break. Anyway, I love this laptop. I named it Drogon because obvious reasons.
  • Was politics always this draining? Geez… Next bullet point.
  • I got a wisdom tooth pulled out because it was hurting like all hell. It wasn’t too bad though. Once the bleeding stopped it was easy street after that. Can’t say the pain was too bad either. I thought it would be terrible, but after a day it was pretty much nonexistent. Also: laughing gas. So much fun! LOL. I promise I don’t have any drug problems (surprise, right?). It was just fun… and I would understand if someone took laughing gas regularly but I would not recommend it. >>
  • I did so much cleaning in 24 hours that I want to high five myself. Good job, Kerri! ❤
  • So… We finally got a washer and dryer and we were *SO* close to not living like peasants until we learned that our old-as-balls apartment had outlets in the laundry room that do not work and a dryer outlet that doesn’t match modern day prongs. So… Yeah… We’re working on getting that shit handled. My gut tells me that an electrician will have to get involved, though, and I don’t like strangers in my home. *cries forever*
  • I really underestimated the soothing power of face masks. I will not make the same mistake again.
  • … Debating giving someone permission to touch my eyebrows and my hair because it looks fun, but at the same time I have to give a firm no. *sigh* Why am I like this? LOL. Sometimes I think the only way I’ll get over this overwhelming hatred of being touched by strangers is… being touched by strangers… which is also a firm no. Ugh, I’m hopeless.
  • I think that’s it? I don’t know. I write most of my personal life crap in my journal, so discussing some things feel repetitive. I guess I should move on for now.

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

  • FUCK YEAH.
  • SO MUCH DRAWING.
  • SO MUCH WRITING.
  • Whoo~
  • Okay, I’m done.
  • It’s pretty sad that I have to keep telling myself “smaller eyes, bigger nose” every time I draw. Anime continues to ruin my life. ;_;
  • Well, as productive as I am, I would still love just one week in a remote, quiet place to write and draw to my heart’s content. I think once I generate enough PTO I’m just going to rent a cabin somewhere with Mark, and he can do all his nerd hobbies in peace and I can do all my nerd hobbies in peace and then we can reunite throughout the day to share a meal or blabber about our accomplishments. That sounds so nice. ^^

✪ Anime & Manga ✪.

  • “Kado: The Right Answer” went from interesting to WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON so damn fast.
  • Diamond is Unbreakable had the nerves to end on me. I am so offended. I miss it so much.
  • WOW. I found this anime called “Room Mate” and I don’t even know how to feel about it. First of all, these first-person animes always feel like Dora the Explorer for otakus. Secondly, I cannot deal with the guys having their clothes randomly disappear during the end credits. Lastly, the fanservice is so blatant. I don’t know… let’s see if this gets as bad as that pillow anime. You know the one I’m talking about.
  • The new Berserk anime follows the manga so well! I can get past the.. um… “unique” graphics for that reason. Actually, the graphics are not so bad once you get used to them. I’m just not 100% into traditionally 2D animes using CGI and stuff like that. I’m getting over it though.
  • Speaking of Berserk, the manga is finally at a point where Casca is in Elfheim and her mind is being examined. It only took an eternity to get to this point, right? Anyway, there will be more at the end of June. I’m ready. It’s time. Something needs to be done with Casca because as adorable as she is in this mentality-of-a-toddler state, I miss the old sword-swinging Casca that yells at Guts when he’s being arrogant and stupid. 😀
  • I’m debating about trying VRV because it has some animes that I can’t find on Crunchyroll but… I don’t know. I think I already have too many streaming services right now. LOL
  • My nephews suggested that I finally watch “Kill La Kill”. LMAO. I used to make their formula and change their diapers, and now they’re telling me what anime to watch. Ugh, time… time is so weird.
  • Can I put Steven Universe in this section? Well… Who is going to stop me? Fufufu~ Anyway, Steven Universe is getting so intense. This is how cartoons are supposed to be! I used to pity children because all they had to watch were the same High-School-Musical-esque crap that Disney was spitting out, but now shows are getting so good that children like my nephews actually have good shows with important storylines. I think we’re in an animation renaissance right now and we don’t even know it. Uh… back on point… Steven Universe is good and animation is so important. Okay, thanks.

 

✪ Video Games ✪

  • Where the hell do I even start? Damn.
  • My only complaint about Persona 5 is that it didn’t last for the rest of my life. In other words, it’s amazing. But Persona is always amazing so no one is surprised. (Take some pages from Atlus’ book, Square).
  • Every time I see an article calling Nier: Automata a “surprise hit” I internally snicker because the original NieR was a fucking masterpiece and it’s sad that it wasn’t appreciated because of the same baby reviewers whining about graphics. I am so tired of whining about graphics. Which goes to my next game…
  • Officially tired of hearing whining about the Mass Effect: Andromeda graphics. It was not as good as the last Mass Effect games. I get it. But sometimes I have to sit through endless bitching about the graphics before anyone gets to the characters or gameplay. Can we please stop talking about graphics already -_-? It’s like… bitching about art. If you don’t like it then deal with it. No one cares. Every game should have its own unique style, and not be held to this “but-does-it-look-real?” standard. …That being said, ME:A could have been better as a Mass Effect title. There were definitely points when the game felt rushed, but overall it was not a monstrosity or anything. I could easy enjoy it for hours and connect with the party members like other Mass Effect games. At worst, it’s a 7 out of 10 if graphics are a HUGE deal to you. For those of us in the gaming community who remember playing with pixelated sprites and will be forever grateful that game characters actually have fingers now (LMAO), I’ll give it an 8 out of 10. I hope Bioware can do better in the future. No love lost for the series though.
  • No, I did not forget Breath of the Wild. Of course I am playing Breath of the Wild. Or… I was playing it. It was so hard to stay focused once these new games started dropping. *sigh* Anyway, the main reason why I am not playing nonstop like I would other Zelda games is really stupid. I just can’t get over my aggravation with the weapons and armor system. When I’m in a boss battle and I end up having to give up because all of my weapons are broken, it just annoys the shit out of me. Because it stops being about hand-eye coordination and starts being about focusing on the lifespan of Link AND his damn weapons. I know, I know. GIT GUD. It’s without a doubt the best game to come out this year. Seriously. It’s an AMAZING game that deserves all of its praise. I just need to get over my own issues and appreciate the infinite amount of things this game gets right. I also need to get over how weird the Wii U gamepad feels. Not really feeling the Switch right now, so I’m not about to buy it just to play one game. -_- Anyway, I still love this game a lot. LOVE THIS GAME. I can’t wait to play more now that my other games are pretty much over.
  • I finally got into Undertale and it’s everything that everyone said it is. I am always late to everything. D:

✪ Books ✪

  • I just need to let it be known that Mark is a terrible influence, and if you ever visit a comic book shop with him he will convince you to ruin your financial situation. But he’s cute so I’ll allow it. ^^
  • The most recent comic I fell in love with was “Monstress”. The amount of effort that went into building the world alone is fucking amazing! I was so inspired by the time I caught up to the most recent issue. It’s one of the few times when I suckered myself into buying a comic just for the art and the storyline was just as good.
  • Caught up on “Saga”… and I wasn’t ready. ^^
  • I decided to read “Snotgirl” because the art is beautiful and the author who wrote “Scott Pilgrim” did the story. Overall, it is okay.
  • I finally started listening to the audiobook of “Ready Player One”. So far, it’s not bad. I’m over the explanation of common terms that every geek already knows, but I remind myself that the author is trying to make things easier to understand for those of us who did not get pushed into lockers in high school (LMAO… Why am I laughing at this? Getting pushed sucked. -_-). Anyway, I’m only four chapters in. Let’s see how the rest goes.

✪ Music ✪

  • PERSONA 5 OST
  • BREATH OF THE WILD OST
  • KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 OST
  • NIER: AUTOMATA OST. Spoiler: ANYONE WHO SKIPS THE SONG FOR EMIL’S SHOP IS NO FRIEND OF MINE.
  • My music life has just been soundtracks after soundtracks after soundtracks, man. Loving it.

✪ TV & Movies ✪

  • Thank you for coming back into my life, Orange is the New Black.
  • I finally caught up on Silicon Valley. It’s pretty funny. I’m curious to see how it will all end since Richard just has the shittiest luck on the planet… sometimes due to his own ridiculous decisions.
  • The Handmaiden’s Tale is horrifying to watch. My goodness. Gilead is absolute hell on Earth, and just the slight possibility that it could happen makes it even worse. I mean… similar things happened to women in the past, so it’s not a huge stretch of the imagination. I’m just anxious thinking about how horribly it’s going to end.
  • At the risk of sounding petty as fuck, I am loving all these entitled, misogynistic assholes throwing a tantrum about Wonder Woman putting their favorites to shame at the box office. And now the theatre that had women-only screenings are being sued? Really? You have nothing else to spend your time and money on? LMAO. Mantrums. Gotta love ’em. By the way, when I went to see Wonder Woman with Mark this dude behind us straight up wolf-whistled when Diana changed into Wonder Woman, and I lost count of how many people were straight up glaring in his direction. Maybe this is why women don’t want to watch movie with ya’ll. I know, I know. “Not all men”. But even Mark–a man–was ashamed of his gender after that happened and completely understood why women would want to appreciate the significance of a successful superheroine movie without some horny creep ruining it. …I’m going to stop ranting because it’s completely overshadowing what this movie accomplished. Years ago, no one wanted to touch it because they adamantly believed that a superhero movie starring a female hero would flop. Now we have this superheroine who is tough enough to lift a tank but feminine and cute enough to lose her cool when she sees a cute baby or eats ice cream (IT IS THE CUTEST THING). I love it. I will bury the lesser members of the male gender attempting to ruin this by appreciating all the women and men who supported this movie, and appreciated it too. Well done, Patty Jenkins, and thank you! ^^
  • Speaking of movie making me proud to be who I am (LMAO), that Black Panther teaser had me in tears. WOW. I mean… to see black people living in Africa and they’re not starving or being saved by fair-skinned saviors is a huge deal. And anyone who says “Meh-meh-meh-it’s-not-about-race” or “Bleh-bleh-bleh-SJW-ruin-everything” can fall off a cliff. Shut the fuck up and miss me with that “we’re all the same” bullshit until you open a fucking book about inequality in our society. *deep breath* Sorry. Ignore, ignore, I know. Anyway, it really means a lot as a black woman to see black women depicted as fierce warriors, and to see Wakanda so rich in the culture of Africa that movie tend to either overlook or mock. Seriously, when I watch black reviewers get teary-eyed as a reaction to the teaser… it is so beautiful and I understand 100% how it feels. If I have children they will watch this movie one day. My nephews will watch this movie one day. It is so important for them to watch a movie and not see people who look like them being enslaved or thrown in prison or being feared as “thugs”. So, that’s why I got teary eyed. I am just proud that we went from blackface to this colorful, beautiful assembly of black characters in a throne room who are thriving in a society where they are not the minority. That’s all. And if that makes me a SJW then I am just fine with it. If looking forward to a society where everyone can be proud of who they are is being a SJW then sign me the fuck up. LOL. Anyway, I’m excited. I’m really excited. I can’t wait until February. T u T

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

*Phew* Glad I got that all out! 😛

All in all, I am doing a-okay, and doing my best to enjoy life as I move into my 30th year.

Moments like going to Momocon with Tiffa and Ashley remind me that life really is about smiling and laughing as much as possible. I want continue doing the things I love with the people I love so that I never lose sight of what matters during the darkest hours of my life. It’s my goal to value strength above all else. The strength to overcome, the strength to endure, and the strength to keep hope. And if that sounds cheesy then it sounds cheesy. That’s just how I I feel.

*sigh* Okay, I’m off. I have more weekend left to enjoy and I haven’t even started playing Breath of the Wild yet. I can’t wait until that four-day weekend at the start of July. Yes… I am so ready to get into another writing marathon! (:<

Art Dump #003

I managed to get my scanner working! It took a lot of headaches with uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, but at last my scanner isn’t a cat bed anymore. Anyhoo, I bring drawings… but not many. I have been feeling more inspired this week since I’m getting back into writing, so maybe I’ll bring better things next time. Well, I’m just going to go ahead and add my pointless commentaries.

**Sidenote: All of these images are automatically hyperlinked by WP to open to its full size (most of these are about 2000×3000 I believe). Thanks WP! :U

IMG_0001

Just Elda being a dick. LOL

IMG_0002

This one took more time than usual. I am making greater efforts to put details into drawings instead of just slapping on some flat, boring clothes and moving along. It’s tough though. But tough is good. Tough is a challenge, and the more challenges I meet the better I will become. I know I’ll never reach, like, Leonardo Da Vinci levels, but knowing that I gravitate more towards character designs I do want to become as good as that as I can get. Yadda, yadda, here is Elda posing with one of her staffs. I’m working on making her staffs operate like Sun Wukong’s Ruyi Jingu Bang (sp?) where it can extend, shrink, and do all types of nifty things. I’ll probably draw that out tonight.

IMG_0003

I’m doing another NieR replay, and I came across that scene where Weiss makes fun of Kaine for always wearing lingerie in public, and then suggests that the lingerie she plans to wear to the King of Facade and Fyra’s wedding should have “spring colors”. So, I tried to put everyone in the type of wedding attire they would wear (LOL). I’m kind of snickering at Emil because I tend to go over the top when it comes to his fascination with adorable, girly things. Then there is Nier’s inability to ever wear a shirt and Weiss wearing a tie. Yeah… it looks about right to me. XD

IMG_0004

Another challenge: new poses. It took time drawing young Odin in a seated position, but it turned out decent compared to the rough sketch I did in the beginning. Eh… it’ll just have to do. *shrug*

IMG_0005

Yes, the ink is extremely light, but it is not the scanner’s fault. Whenever I do rough and quick sketches it seems like my pencil barely touches the paper, so… magnifying this one will help probably. All of that aside, I am still working out the process of Odin’s transmogrification into a dragon. I am set on him being consumed by fire, but how that turns into him being a dragon is still a working process. I’m also working on Elda’s process of becoming a dragon rider/dragoon. For now it’s just going to be like riding a horse because I’m entirely stumped. D:

 

I wish I was able to draw things like buildings and landscapes because I have so many ideas that I want to sketch out. Maybe I should just do it regardless of how shitty I think it will look, you know? I really have to get over this idea that every drawing needs to be done quickly. If I got over that then I could keep returning to the same drawing over and over until it looked infinitely better than the type of things I draw in a 20-40 minute span.

*sigh* Okay then. I’m going to tackle writing and drawing some more. Next time I might post an excerpt from the story if I feel confident enough with my progress to do that. I should also consider uploading some of these drawings to my website and deviant art whenever I find the motivation to. Blah…

Alright. That’s it for today. >_<

Art Dump #002

Not much to share today.

20150217_043037

I love drawing with permanent tools like gel pens. It’s kind of adventurous to go in knowing that if you make a mistake you’re either screwed or you’re forced to get creative with it. Anyway, ARMLESS ZERO. Zero is the best. ~_~

20150217_043107

I started working on this comic last year and then I just sort of stopped. Glad I saved it though instead of throwing it away like everything else.

20150217_043450

Just some hands and a face.

20150217_043203

Me and some flowers.

20150217_043225

Mark got me acrylic paint a while ago, and this is the first time I really got to use it. I just painted a cherry for the hell of it because why not?

20150217_043341

Quick sketch of Lorelei (or Odin’s mother in TMS).

If all goes well my next entry about my boring personal updates will be drawn instead of written. That is what I am working on in between sketches and doodles of random objects.

Oh! I found an artbook that I saved from the sixth grade. It is so horrendous. Like, I had this comic where Sailor Moon runs into Sephiroth, and it is the most random crossover ever. I was cracking up because back then I actually thought a villain like Sephiroth could be turned into this upbeat, friendly guy by spending a few hours talking to someone like Usagi. *sigh* I know better now. That book will never see the light of day if I can help it. And those Fatal Fury comics I did. Uggggh, I’m ashamed. Bye. (LMAO)

Art Dump #001

*Shulk voice* I’M REALLY FEELING IT.

Most of these drawings are old as balls, but at least I got around to uploading them… via camera no less. In my defense I’m really protective of my sketchbooks, so tearing pages out is a huge no for me. Soooo, that being said, please forgive the shitty quality. Also, get used to it since my patience with my current scanner is at 0% at this point. You get what you pay for, right? Word of advice: if a scanner is cheap it is probably for a reason. LOL. Okay, let’s move on with everything~

20150122_193940

This post is brought to you by Crayola, Hello Kitty, and Korean stationery supplies. Thanks for taking all my money~

20150122_193955

This is my art briefcase by the way. No, I am not 10. It’s just really cute. I’m a sucker for cute things. Leave me alone.

 

20150122_193418

Mark suggested I draw a self-portrait, and this is what happened. I probably don’t take things as seriously as I should as an artist. I know if I ever went to art school my teacher would just ban me from the class because I’ll just draw smiley faces on inappropriate things… like nude art. I actually do that in my sketchbooks. I’m not posting them though. I have some shame. D:

20150122_193439

Brace yourself for way more “The Millennium Sorceress (herein TMS)” than you ever wanted to see in one lifetime. Should I do the whole description thing? Eh… Why not. Top left corner, three doodles of Elda. Top right, Selene and Silas. Below them, Odin mid-transmogrification and then a less intimidating Odin. Bottom left, Aisne and Lorelei. Next to them, Bleiddian “Wolf” Wilder and his fellow assassin Kismette Ozatt. For those who endured my ever-changing “Mythos” stories in the past, Kismette is Giga’s mother, Wolf is Odin’s father, Lorelei is Odin’s mother, and Selene is the mother of Sebastian and Silvain. So, there is that. Think of this part of the story I am working on as a prequel to the “Mythos” I was working on in the past. ^^;;

20150122_193452

I got bored and tried to design my own superhero. She is “The Phantasm”, a ghost sent back to Earth to exact justice. Lame, I know. D:

20150122_193503

Never get tired of drawing Elda. She’s as fun to draw as Deedlit and Pirotess once were, so it makes sense to me. I’m also the type of nerd who obsesses over their own OCs so… there is that too. LOL

20150122_193543

*violin obsession intensifies* Let’s take it to the next level and have a character who is just a walking violin. Every time she talks it just sounds like a beautiful song that no one understands but appreciates. 😀

20150122_193605

I love how Elda started off as this really timid character and eventually morphed into the biggest dick in TMS. LOL. I kind of told myself that if I was a century old sorceress and had 900 years to go I would stop giving a shit. I’d just indulge in every pleasure imaginable and then burn anyone who tries to lecture me about the errors in my ways… which is pretty much what Elda does. She’s really not a bad person, just really selfish. Please don’t hate her. *protects Elda at all costs*

20150122_193623

That top photo is Elda’s resting face (aka “the bitchface”). She always looks like she’s about to beat motherfuckers up. It’s not even a game. XDD

20150122_193633

I’m not even set on making TMS into an RPG (though RPG Maker VX is tempting me), but I made some staffs. My writing is terrible so I’ll write it out here: (#1) The Nameless Grace, (#2) Spriggan Sigil, (#3) Vespertine, (#4) Spearhead, (#5) Pythia. I drew tons more but… eh. I’ll upload them another time.

20150122_193649

Giga suffers from serious Brock (Pokemon) syndrome until she gets pissed. Then she gives the signature death stare that goofy anime characters like to give when something is serious business. LOL. I am basing her entire personality on my cat Link. He is generally relaxed and playful (to the point of being destructive at times -.-) until food comes into the picture. That’s when he becomes a lvl. 99 douchelord. He’ll also give the death stare if you interrupt his sleeping or eating so… Giga is essentially a big lady cat if the cat ears did not give that away already.

20150122_193702

This is the Minthean elder’s shrine. Every forested domain as an elder, and she is pretty much an assistant to the all-goddess that all dryads worship. I don’t want to say elders are like queens because no one relies on them to set laws. The forest goddesses already tell the forested domains what to do via whispers from trees, flowers, grass, etc. that only dryads can hear. So, really, the elder is just a babysitter who has to tell wayward dryads like Elda: “Didn’t the all-goddess tell you to not do the thing? Why are you doing the thing?!” That is Elder Ozara (of Minthe) anyway. When it comes to the other six forested domains (Seligren, Xhulti, Yephrine, Bell Thevard, Ulveld, and Aalthea) the elders vary from being really strict to being way too lax. I have some drawings of them as well as their respective shrines, but I’m lazy. Another time perhaps. >_<

20150122_193715

Dude, it must have sucked for Zero to grow a fricking flower from her eye. On top of that a flower that is pretty much evil. So, yeah, that was the inspiration for this–Zero losing her shit because flowers are growing from her eyeballs. All of that aside, Taro Yoko is a major inspiration to me. He comes up with the most bizarre yet heartbreaking and amazing stories. I want to be like him someday. ;_;

20150122_193736

Listening to “Atom Dance” from Bjork’s new album made me think about how neat it is to be composed of the same microscopic building blocks (aka atoms) as planets, stars, and all of that stuff. I had this borderline pothead philosophy that everyone is controlling their own universe without even realizing it, and then I drew it literally. I promise this is not a tired lady hula hooping the solar system, as hilarious and terrifying as that would be.

20150122_193800

This is the front of my sketchbook. Use metallic colored pencils on your sketchbooks, man. It looks great. As for that sticker I don’t even know who or what “Empire” is. All I know is that Mark was like: “Hey, someone gave me this. You want it?” and then I was like: “Please! My story takes place in an empire! It’s perfect!” So, there it is. My baby~

20150122_193807

Gold looks *nice* on black surfaces. Holy shit. I like Odin’s cover more than Elda’s cover because IRL it looks so vibrant. Like, Elda’s cover won’t even pop unless it’s under bright light, but Odin’s cover is always shiny. I like gold. Gold and black everything from this moment on. >_<

20150122_193832

This wasn’t even in my sketchbook. I just didn’t want to work with my scanner, as I mentioned before. Anyway, nothing new. Just Elda wearing something fancy and looking pissed off while doing so.

*phew*

Alright, that is everything I am sharing today. I do more writing than drawing these days, but I’ll post whatever I can when I can. Actually, it is my goal to one day turn this blog into 80% drawings and 20% text posts. Even if I have to draw about the crap going on in my life and take a picture it would be great practice, you know? I have so much practicing to do. I think I’ll pick up some scrapbook backgrounds from Jo-Ann’s so the pictures I take will have fancy borders around them. Yeah, let’s do that!

Okay. That’s all.

Thanks for enduring this messy art dump. ‘Til next time! ♥

090: Nornir

FFXV looks amazing.

Trying to reorganize my blog entries again. Bear with me.

✪ Personal Life ✪

  • Whenever I get sick I sometimes remember that the purpose of the “bug” is to kill me, not to inconvenience me, and it brings home that death is always right around the corner. Also, I am fun at parties.
  • I kind of want to give myself a high five right now because I had this long list of shit I wanted to clean and organize (as I try to do every change of season), and I tackled it today. While I am still semi-sick. But at the same time I kind of want to kick myself in the face because when I’m healthy I never do shit, yet when I’m sick I suddenly find a bunch of energy and invest 4-5 hours into chores. I am too backwards for my own good. D:
  • Halloween is almost here~ That’s the day that I dump a bunch of candy into my pumpkin bowl, turn off all the lights so trick-or-treaters won’t ask me for any, and watch scary movies until I pass out. It’s gonna be NICE. Hopefully. But I never know.
  • 99% of the time when I refer to someone as “my baby” or “my boo” IRL I am talking about either Link or Levi(athan). The cat and the car respectively.

✪ Art & Writing ✪

  • Titles are a headache. I know that “Mythos” is not good enough anymore, yet nothing else seems to be good enough either. Mark suggested having a name for the series (ex: GRRM’s “A Song of Fire and Ice”) and then naming each book based individually (ex: “A Game of Thrones”, “A Feast for Crows”, “A Storm of Swords”, etc.). That’s not a bad idea. In fact, his advice led me to a series name (“The Millennium Sorceress”). The issue though is that I am not even set on the idea of books. I’ll bring that to the next bullet.
  • The more I work on “Mythos” (let’s just stick with the usual title until I am set on “TMS” or anything else), the more it feels like an RPG. And it makes sense. I began this project because I was inspired by RPGs like Final Fantasy and Chrono Cross. I like the whole travelling around the world, meeting party members, and telling stories through dialog and battles. Actually, I’m waiting for RPG Maker VX Ace to go back on sale again so I can start working with it. It’s about $60 on Steam right now, but it was $15 once. So I’ll wait. Until then I’ll try “Mythos” as an RPG instead. Let’s see if that helps this horrible writer’s block I am dealing with.
  • Nanowrimo is around the corner, but I don’t think I will participate this year. My creative juices are flowing more towards the technical side (drawing, creating maps, making skill trees, etc.) than the writing side. I really am a shit writer. I can’t explain things as beautifully and poetically as the writers I admire. *pouts* Oh well…
  • Drawing comics about the things that are bothering me can be really therapeutic. Oddly enough, it is not revisiting unpleasant things and making them comical that makes me feel relaxed. It is more the freedom to be meticulous. Whipping that ruler out, drawing perfect lines, being uber-cautious with inking–that is the part that makes me feel…in control. I just like the feeling of taking something as chaotic as something I cannot avoid, like misfortune, and making it all neat. Manageable, even. It’s comforting.

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

I tried out the Funimation and Crunchyroll apps for two weeks, and I managed to catch up on a bunch of animes.

  • Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun – I really love this anime. It’s lighthearted. It’s funny. The main character is really easy to relate to while the supporting characters remind me of so many people I know. It’s just a feel-good anime that I can see myself rewatching the moment the series is done. Also, that ending song. It’s so cute and it’s stuck in my head. D:
  • Gintama – I will get the Crunchyroll app just to finish this anime. Seriously. Within the first minute or so I was dying of laughter.
  • Tonari no Seki-kun – Another funny anime. Seki reminds me so much of Mark. He just has an endless supply of tiny toys that he does distracting stuff with. Seriously, we have been living in this apartment for a while and I am still discovering random toys in random places doing random things, and whenever I ask him to explain it he has some elaborate story for why they are there. So, it’s no surprise that he loved the hell out of this anime. It is a pretty cute anime. I just wish it was longer. 😦
  • Naruto Shippuden – Dude, I have not watched this anime in years. I came back to it to see what happened and found out Team 7/Team Kakashi is back together. What the fuck? Wasn’t Sasuke evil? Yeah… hella behind. I found out that Naruto is coming to an end really soon too, so that’s kind of bittersweet. I know Naruto gets shit on a lot (as anything remotely popular does), but…that’s fucking Naruto man. It’s going to be sad to see it go. I never got into One Piece, but I might start checking that anime out so I’m not without a staple shounen series to fall back on. Well…I have Toriko. That counts as shounen, right? Sometimes I forget because Toriko is an adult who is very, extremely manly. But so is Goku and DBZ is shonen anime/manga legend. It’s all good.
  • Dramatical Murder – Eh… Compared to the game it was very tame. I like the music though. I never skipped the opening and closing because I liked the songs a lot. The animation was also nice. I didn’t get to see much of my bb Mink, but it was still OK.
  • Sword Art Online II – Didn’t like it as much as I liked the first. Mark was really into it though.
  • Akame ga Kill! – Started off interesting. Got bored around episode 3 or 4. I might try again another time.
  • High School DxD – …What the fuck did I watch…? Pretty sure it was hentai.
  • The Idol Master – a.k.a. the anime based on the game that made Kentaro Miura stop working on Berserk. LOL. I saw the first episode, and it seemed adorable. I would not mind seeing how the rest goes.

Speaking of Berserk, that manga update. YES. I have been waiting for someone to slap the shit out of Griffith ever since the Eclipse, and I am so glad it was Rickert.  That blatant disrespect at the graveyard of swords too was just… Yeah. He needed the taste slapped out of his mouth. Well, I think he deserves much more than that–MUCH MUCH MORE–but to get pimp slapped at his own tea party by a kid in front of all of his friends was pretty nice. 10/10. Not okay with that ‘Til’ Next Time’ though.

✪ Video Games ✪

  • I doomed my FFVII replay by going to that fucking Northern Cave. Now that I completed the game I just have no motivation to do anything else. It kind of sucks. There are still weapons to beat and special items to get, but I have this sense of closure from completing the game. Maybe I’ll play tomorrow or something. IDK.
  • Alien: Isolation was amazing. Please don’t listen to IGN’s review. The person who reviewed it was bitter about constantly dying and tried to blame the game for it. The thing is… he started the game on hard mode. Of course you will die a lot if you choose to play a game in hard mode. What were you expecting? Additionally, he mentioned his tactic of hiding in the vents to avoid confronting a xenomorph, but xenomorphs travel through the vents. That’s like trying to avoid getting hit by a car by standing in the middle of the street. I’m sorry, but it irks the hell out of me when companies give poor reviews to games because they suck at it. A lot of people who worked hard to make a superior game can lose money and their jobs because of shit reviews like that. It’s just really irresponsible journalism. No one should never blame the quality of a product on their inability to handle it. I hate seeing reviews like that on sites like Amazon (“This product clearly says to do this but I’m going to do the opposite and bitch about it online.”), and I especially hate seeing reviews like that when it comes to games. /rant
  • My gaming life is still being consumed by Borderlands 2. This weekend was free gold weekend, so I took the opportunity to input a fuckton of shift codes. I have 100+ keys, new skins, new heads. It’s really nice. Lately, I’ve been grinding/farming with Maya in hopes of catching her up to Gaige, and I’m getting kind of close. Maya is level 13. Gaige is level 19. I just have to take my time around Tundra Express, and hope that I don’t run into any badass anythings. If I stick with the varkids and a few basic bandits I can level up pretty fast. It’s not a big deal though. Gaige is still my main character. I’m just curious about Maya’s phaselocking potential. 😛
  • Don’t talk to me about Hyrule Warriors, Super Smash Bros Wii U or Bayonetta 2 because I don’t have a Wii U and I don’t know when I’ll get one tbh (Yes, I know SSB is on the 3DS but I can’t afford that one either).
  • I played the Theatrhythm: Curtain Call demo, and it was so fun! I really want to play the full version. 200 Final Fantasy songs? Are you kidding me? I need that right now. ;_;
  • LET’S TALK ABOUT DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION THO.
  • Praying to the video game gods rn so I save up $400 and get a PlayStation 4.  I don’t want to imagine my life without Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy Type-0, The Witcher 3, Kingdom Hearts 3. What else am I missing? A bunch of games, I am sure. PLUS all the PSX classics. Just thinking about playing Xenogears in the immediate future makes me want to dance around. *sigh* Just gotta work hard. Keep tackling bills, taking care of home, and saving. I’ll get there soon enough.

✪ Books ✪

Nothing to really add here. I haven’t ventured beyond the same books I piled at my bedside last time. I’ve just been caught up in other hobbies. I am really looking forward to The World of Ice and Fire though. Like, REALLY looking forward to it. I’ve been annoying Mark with my excitement for it. Whoops. LOL. The same goes for the Chrono Cross Ultimania. I have my eyes on that too. It’s been out forever, but I’m deciding now to say “fuck it” and add it to my collection. Soon.

✪ Music ✪

  •  Is it safe to say that the Super Smash Bros. soundtracks are like the Lollapaloozas for game composers? Seriously, Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda,  Koji Kondo, Motoi Sakuraba, Keiichi Okabe, Mahito Yokota–LEGENDS. So, it’s safe to say that I am listening to a lot of SSB songs lately. The greatest thing is hearing my favorite composers revamp songs I have been listening to since I was a kid. I never get tired of it. I can hear 1,000 renditions of the Super Mario theme and still get an overwhelming urge to whip out my old school consoles.
  •  Kingdom Hearts 2.5 OST. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN REMADE WITH MORE VIOLINS. If this is a sample of what Yoko Shimomura is going to do with Final Fantasy XV then I am hyped as fuck. There are so many game soundtracks that I need in my life right now. It’s not even funny anymore. -_-

✪ TV & Movies ✪

Man, I don’t even know where to start.

  • South Park – The biggest premiere for me. Of course, SP is as funny and controversial as ever. The thing I am loving most, though, is the continuity. It’s neat that they’re carrying clues from episode to episode until the inevitable conclusion at the season finale. This is SP though. They might string the audience along just to come to an anticlimactic conclusion. Yeah, I can definitely see that happening. LOL
  • The Legend of Korra – Hilarious as always until something destroys my soul.
  • Grey’s Anatomy – …Why am I still watching this show? Seriously, Yang is gone. There is no point for me anymore.
  • Sons of Anarchy – JAAAAX!!! *kicks table over* GEMMAAAA!!! *kicks over all of the chairs* CHARMING IN GENERAL!!!! *flying kick to the window*
  • Gotham –  Not a bad show at all. I hate that I keep missing episodes though. I would be so far behind in everything were it not for Hulu.
  • American Horror Story – Never fails to creep me out. I love it.
  • SNL – Can we just have an entire hour about the nightclubs that Stefon goes to?
  • ANTM – Two words: beard weave. Please stop, Tyra. XDD
  • Forever – Interesting.
  • Agents of Shield – So far so good. If anything happens to Simmons and/or Fitz I am going to…do nothing. Just be really sad. :/
  • The Flash – !!!
  • Gracepoint– I LOVE THIS SHOW. Mark makes fun of me for taking it so seriously, but it is not a joke to me, and he knows there will be trouble if he changes the channel while Gracepoint in on. So much trouble.
  • Total Divas – Never really sat down and watched this show until recently. It’s…eye-opening, I guess? I honestly don’t feel like I’m learning anything about the wrestlers because everything feels scripted. It’s nice to see more of Naomi though. She needs that Divas championship like yesterday. I adore AJ, yes, but Naomi is more athletic to me. I need her to own it at some point.
  • Drunk History – I never get tired of this show. I think I watched a few episodes like three times already because they’re so funny and insightful. Watch it. Even if you’re like me and you rarely drink (or don’t drink at all) just watch it. It’s hilarious.
  • WWE – Last but not least this trash (LOL). Okay, I’ll admit. I was marking the fuck out when The Rock showed up. And he was in Brooklyn?! Yeah, I was happy about that. I’m bummed about Roman Reigns STILL being gone though. Dean Ambrose is filling the void he left, but with John Cena being forced into the Dean and Seth feud it just makes everything kind of…ugh. I don’t hate John Cena. I’m just tired of him. Yes, we get it. Hustle, you can’t see me, never give up. Whatever. Then again, I know he is mainly there for the little kids who never get tired of him, and not so much the adult fans who want  more interesting characters. That is where Dean comes in. He pretty much doesn’t give a shit and does whatever he wants, so I think that is why older fans adore him. Anyway, what’s next? Hell in the Cell? I’m rooting for Dean Ambrose to win. Still, I kind of want Brock Lesnar to show up and chew through the cell or something just to fuck everything up. That would be great.

I haven’t seen any new movies lately. I REALLY want to see Gone Girl.

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

*phew* That was a lot!

Well, this week is going to be a long one for me. There is so much to get done. I only hope that with the spare time I find in between all of the annoying stuff that I can work on an RPG. If not “Mythos” then at least a brand new idea. I’d rather not start a new one though. Yeah…I have nothing else to add. Gonna tackle some crap and then start working on some stuff. I *might* upload some drawings soon too. At last, I have some sketches that I consider decent enough to share. So I will share them soon. Hopefully.

Take care, everyone. ♥

SEA GODDESS OF MY LIFE

FIERCE AND BEAUTIFUL SEA GODDESS OF MY LIFE

☆彡 I’m really excited about the new Sailor Moon anime. Sometimes I think about the fact that it’s four months away, and I get revved up with energy. I told Mark that if the anime is released on my birthday that we are not going out at all. I’m going to just countdown to the worldwide live stream, and then spend the rest of the day rewatching the same episode repeatedly until he despises anything Sailor Moon related. The thing I love most about this reboot is all the merchandise that it is bringing. If it is ever dubbed and released in America I can imagine seeing plenty of items in local stores, and that’s practically a guarantee that I will be poorer than I already am. I’m not even remotely sad about that. This is going to be great! I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

★彡 Wardrobe Goal: everything April Ludgate wears in Parks & Recreation. I would also like to adopt that intense yet lovely glare. Aubrey Plaza is precious.

☆彡 I beat Stick of Truth…in two days (*weeps*). I want to replay already. Oh well. Now I’m going through my pile of shame again. It has been more rewarding than I expected. Assassin’s Creed II is so fun that I spent most of my snow days playing it. I only stopped because I decided to tackle Fable 3. Now I am pretty much incapable of leaving it alone even after saving Albion. Again. I will likely move back to Assassin’s Creed II and then continue on to Gears of War. I’m not sure what happens after that. One day at a time, right? It’s not like going through my pile of shame is unpleasant. The only downside is picking up in places I left off months–sometimes years–ago and having no idea what the fuck is going on. I’m afraid to even return to Lost Odyssey because I don’t know where I was, where I’m supposed to go, who is suppose to learn what skill from which character, etc. Yeah, don’t end up like me. Please finish your games before moving on to others. Especially your RPGs. Those side quests will fuck you up.

★彡 I found some old stories that I was working on in 2010. It’s pretty exciting…by my standards. I’m already reviving one of them because I became obsessed with it again after reading the first page. I also found a sketchbook from 2008 that I did not tear any pages out of. It was extremely rewarding. I wish I left more sketchbooks untampered. Ah, well. I plan to revive this sketchbook too. Mark bought me some new colored pencils, markers, and this awesome Hello Kitty pencil case that comes with a built-in sharpener and eraser holder. INFINITE SHOUT OUTS TO MARK. I’m drawing a bunch of shit right now. They look ridiculous at times, but it’s fun.

☆彡 My favorite thing about Attack on Titan was Levi. And Levi. That is it. Just Levi.

★彡 It’s hard to leave Link alone because I know he still struggles with abandonment issues. There is not a day when I leave the house that I do not come home to find him waiting by the window. Although it is  tearful to think about, I often wonder how many of his past owners just left him waiting somewhere and never returned for him. I know the woman who helped us to adopt him was in tears when she begged us to never leave him or return him because he had a rough past. My baby… He tries so hard to be tough and hides away from us sometimes to be alone, but the moment we come home he just jumps around all over the place. I know there is a part of him that is always relieved to know that we actually returned to him. Ah, I love him so much! As much as it pains me to imagine his death, it pains me even more to imagine something unfortunate happening to us and knowing that he will sit by the window waiting for us only to learn that his waiting is fruitless. I hate the idea of that happening. Until the end of his days, I want to be there for him. That is my only goal as his caretaker. Whether he’s bored, hungry, in need of affection, or prepared to pass away I want him to feel that he can depend on me to be there for him. I really love my cat, okay?  TT___TT

☆彡 The new Game of Thrones season is a month away! I’m pretty excited. Did you see how big Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal were? And don’t even get me started on Dany. PERFECT KHALEESI OF MY SOUL. I got chills when she said, “They can live in my new world or they can die in their old one.” WIGS BEING SNATCHED! Okay, I’m done. LOL. Naturally, I am expecting some more changes from the book…some changes probably not for the best…but I have no complaints about the cast whatsoever. They do magic with whatever scripts they receive, so I am looking forward to that. Also, I’m relieved that they are adding Coldhands this season. At least I believe that was Coldhands in the trailer. Anyway, good year for TV, video games, music, and fandoms as a whole. …Except for The Witcher 3 being delayed. That pretty much blows. I’ll just have to get my silver-haired hero(ine) fix elsewhere. There is Daenerys, of course. There is Zero. Yeah, that sounds good.

★彡 To me, time and money spent doing something that makes you genuinely happy is not a waste at all. There are too many people on this planet who believe they know what is best for everyone they encounter when they have little to no credentials to make that decision. No one can know a person 100%. You can know someone for 20 years and still be unqualified in terms of making choices for him/her, so a few hours a day is definitely not enough. Some people don’t even have a few hours a day to observe someone–just a few minutes or seconds–and they still believe they have complete understanding of a person. You just have to accept that almost all the people who know you are ignorant to what you truly want out of life, and you also have to accept that as someone who is an expert on your own wants and needs you should should make your own choices. So, give yourself some credit. Do not allow others to tell you that you are not doing things properly in your own life. As long as you are not intentionally harming others, you are doing a good job at managing yourself. That is how I feel about that. Of course, you can completely disregard everything I said in this bullet because I do not know what is best for you. It is that easy. 😛

TL;DR Fuck the haters. Do your best, and take pride in your efforts.

☆彡 Beyonce’s new album is great, but to say that it is the best R&B album ever made is…a stretch. It was, to me, the best R&B album of 2013. Overall, though, I would have to say Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” followed by Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” and then Toni Braxton’s self-titled album. One of my personal favorites (though it’s probably not one of the bests to many people) is “Never Say Never” by Brandy. I didn’t even touch on Whitney House, Marvin Gaye, En Vogue, Mariah Carey, Aaliyah, and D’Angelo yet. So…yeah… I have infinite love for Beyonce’s album–and I was incredibly excited when it was suddenly release–but it’s just not “the best” or even in the Top 20 for the best R&B albums of all time. That’s kind of pushing it, brah. XD

★彡 I’m suspending my lessons in Japanese to work on German. I’m still practicing ASL though. If I had to break language lessons down by difficulty, it would be ASL, German, and then Japanese. ASL is easiest because it’s just learning to replace words with hand motions. No new vocabulary or grammar lessons needed. German is very much like English save for a brand new lexicon to memorize, and some random grammar changes here and there. Japanese is like…learning to speak from scratch. Everything is so different. So, it’s a little hasty to jump from English to Japanese. I know enough bright people who can pull it off (and some who have pulled it off), but I am nowhere near their level of skill. So…baby steps. My goal is to be fluent in those three languages by my 30th birthday. So, that’s a good four years to master that goal. We’ll see if my memory retention disappoints me. Again. LOL

☆彡 If I hear you playing Radiohead, Bjork, or The Smashing Pumpkins I will probably somersault through your window and ask you to tell me everything about your favorite albums. I’m sorry in advance. D:

★彡 I feel bad for anyone who labels me as sweet because they have no idea that I turn into Kainé on my bad days. Whoops. I’m sorry. The good thing is that I don’t go into violent potty mouth mode unless I am faced with the person who intentionally provoked me (OR if I’m dealing with someone who is so insignificant that they are not even worth a single word or second of eye contact from me then I will just ignore them until they finally catch a hint and fuck off). Everyone else will just get a stoic face, one-word replies, and an apology for my mood every other minute.

☆彡 This is my prediction of Wrestlemania XXX. Daniel Bryan is going to defeat Triple H. Naturally, it will not be easy. If Triple H does not cheat then he will just kick ass. Because he’s the goddamn Triple H. Either way, the main event will turn into Daniel Bryan VS Batista VS Randy Orton. I believe Batista will win that. Daniel Bryan will likely beat Randy Orton like it’s his job–again–but Triple H will be pissed about losing and take it out on Daniel Bryan. Batista will take advantage of that in order to win. Yep, I’m going to stick with that theory. I hope that WWE will surprise me with a different plot twist, but that seems to be the general flow of Daniel Bryan pay-per-view matches. As for Brock VS Undertaker…yeah, come on. The Undertaker is going to win. Brock Lesner is not popular enough with the WWE fanbase to do something like break 21-win streak, and not cause a giant rift between fan and company. So, he’s going to lose. Then there’s The Shield and The Wyatt Family. Hmm…that one is tough to predict. Both teams are strong, both teams are headliners, and both teams do not mind cheating in order to win. LOL. So, who knows? If The Wyatt Family happens to win then it could lead to The Shield being brainwashed in the same fashion that Kane and Daniel Bryan were (though it was temporary in Daniel’s case); however, Mark strongly disagrees with that prediction. And he has a point. We believe that The Wyatt Family, like The Shield, is a tool of the authority. We came to this conclusion when Bray Wyatt said “the devil made him do it” after jumping all of those people who pissed of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. So, there really is no purpose in the authority pitting half of their attack dogs against the other half. Still, let’s not forget that The Shield did turn against Kane who is a loyal member of the authority now. Alright. Let’s just do this, I’m going to choose The Wyatt Family because (a) it will be more interesting and cause more controversy, and (b) as much as I love The Shield I love The Wyatt Family even more. I’m drawn to creepy things like crab-walking cult leaders with crazy awesome beards. LOL. We will see how wrong or right I am in April. I will likely ramble on againt about the results as I always do. I cannot help it. This soap opera-esque battle royale realness that WWE has is addicting for some reason. Save me. D:

Okay, I’m going to spend the rest of my weekend not thinking about Dark Souls 2 because I am poor, and probably will not play it for another couple of months. Parenthesis, crying face. There is still quality time I need to spend with my art supplies, Ezio, and this Pokemon marathon I am going through on Netflix thanks to Mark (Kind of OT: Remember when Sabrina’s father showed Ash a family photo that belong to Sabrina in order to hint that he was Sabrina’s father and Ash guessed that he was her photographer and Sabrina’s father was so alarmed by Ash’s stupidity that he literally flew off the bench they were sitting on? Yeah, I’ve been laughing about that for the last hour). He bought Pokemon Y a few days ago, so I never stop hearing about Pokemon. LOL. Now he’s harassing me every day to get Pokemon X. I’m not even kidding when I say he literally wakes up and asks me about getting Pokemon X. So, it’s not even a matter of if anymore but when. *sigh* I’ll do anything for my darling. It will be done. Plus, it’s not like I was not planning to get the game at some point. Why not now?

LET’S DO THIS. [ 3DS PLAYING INTENSIFIES ]

078: Guardian of Wood

Me.

This is what living with my cat is like.

★彡 Skyrim is such a time-consuming game that I actually find myself afraid to play it. For example, I told myself I would play the game for one hour just to complete a quest, and it somehow turned into four hours…and I ended up adopting a daughter…and I caught a serial killer…and I think I held a conversation with a dragon. Everything happened so quickly. All of that aside, this game is amazing. I don’t care how bad my day is, the moment that menu screen loads and “Dragonborn” plays, I am not even on this planet anymore.

☆彡 I am more of a listener than a talker. I don’t mind listening to a person talk for hours if they are saying insightful things. Pretty much anything I can draw useful information from is insightful to me.

★彡No, I am not playing GTA V because I’m poor and I probably won’t be able to play it for months. Parenthesis, crying face.

☆彡 Korean pastries are life-changing. And I’m not just talking about the first time. Pretty much every time is life-changing.

★彡 Me: *watching Sleepy Hollow* “Got us a cool-looking headless horseman, alright alright. WOC as the leading lady? Awesome, awesome. Something about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. I don’t mind that trope at all, looking good, looking good. Wow, this show is–” *headless horseman takes out a shotgun and automatic rifle*

61664586

That’s not going to stop me or anything, but still….

☆彡 If you find yourself saying “____ thinks (s)he is ______”, just kick yourself in the fucking mouth. You will look stupid for doing it, but not as stupid as you look pretending that you can read minds and jumping to conclusions with no evidence whatsoever to back it up.

★彡 I haven’t made an Animal Crossing post in a while, huh? Really, nothing is happening in Arni Village. I added a garden to hold my triforce and master sword, but that’s about it. My 3DS is mostly used to play Oracle of Seasons and Pokemon Black 2 these days. I’ll likely make a post if I get the entire varia suit. Right now, I only have the pants though…like three of them. I also have four of Link’s tunics, three boots, two Majora’s masks, and two Midna masks. You really can have too much of a good thing, I guess.

☆彡 Pet Peeve #509: Being told that I should use my drawings to gain money or recognition. I understand that those suggestions are coming from a good place, but why can’t I just enjoy things without it being a job or a contest? The same goes for my writing. A manager once suggested I submit writings to magazines…and then proceeded to lecture me on the “importance” of not “wasting talent” when I said no. Stahp.

★彡 Heyman kissing Ryback on the cheek was so bizarre that it became hilarious. I am still laughing at Ryback’s face when it happened. He looked like the happiest person in the world. LOL. Of course, I knew HHH would come up with some way to screw Daniel Bryan out of his championship. The moment he won I said: “Let’s see how long this lasts”. It wasn’t even 24 hours before it got taken away. Damn shame. Anyway, I know the locker room is going to pay for helping Daniel Bryan on Raw. Smackdown is going to be very interesting this week. The whole company versus employees arc itself  is interesting. I wonder how it will end. I have a feeling either HHH, Stephanie, or Vince is going to start backing Daniel Bryan, and it will create this McMahon-Hemsley civil war. Then different wrestlers will take side and it’ll be a WWE civil war. Maybe that is more of a hope than a prediction.

☆彡 Link’s favorite place to lay down is on top of my Hyrule Historia. I think he is trying to tell me something.

★彡 Speaking of The Legend of Zelda, the more popular a favorite series of mine gets, the happier I get. One, more fans to discuss it with. Two, a bigger fanbase means more products in the future. Three, knowing how happy a series makes me, I am happier to know that others are experiencing that too. For example, I hear so many stories about The Legend of Zelda getting people through hard times the way it always did for me, and it is tear-jerking. You don’t even have to explain yourself to people like that. You both hear about the series and it’s just…a surge of positive feelings. That is amazing to me. Sure, it is probably sad to get emotional over video games while having little to no emotions about “relevant” things, but that’s the way it is for me and many. I think that’s cool.

 

Bah, next week is jury duty week. Let’s see how that goes…

TIAC3DP: Part 4

1358631-P_ccQRZwqMUQC8Do

This one was pretty easy to draw, so it didn’t take much time.

1358632-IdCvDt44Sou1u6y-

The recording for this is a little confusing. I know. I was about to start on my ‘air’ drawing, but I got bored and started doodling a mascot. When the mascot got boring, I started drawing Mark. So, this is Mark.

TIAC3DP: Part 3

HNI_0100

 

Recording of drawing here.

I regret starting off with that dark gray color. This would have looked so much better if it was nothing but blues and greens. Bah. No point in would-haves and should-haves, right? I will work on fire, earth, and air really soon! And use the right colors! 😀

 

TIAC3DP: Part 2

1351269-m9e7djIBBPVCwPII

Dany fanart! Whoo! I don’t know why it took me so long to make one. I finally got around to signing up for the Colors gallery, so you can actually watch me draw her over here.

…That’s all I have for now. D:
