Listening To: Can't Take It In, Narnia Soundtrack, Imogen Heap
Assignment all over with!! And now there's only one left. I feel so free; I could just fly off right here. So everything's great these days. Christmas is coming, too....heehee. Freak you out?
I finished coloring this today, finally. My new markers rock! It's a picture from that oddly-captioned InuYasha coloring book.~ The link died because MajHost sucks. You're not missing anything. ~
If the drawing were mine, it'd go right into that manga contest. style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif But actually, I'm thinking about entering that Asaki and Tetsuo pic from the last entry, or some variation of those two together. As LMK pointed out, Akina and Tetsuo reminds one too much of Akira and Tetsuo of Akira
. Which is like, the most famous manga in America. Bummer. So I'm trying out Asaki to replace the name Akina. It would work well for my manga, in which Asaki's sister is named Sayori. The name Sayori means "born at night", and Asaki means "born in the morning". This may go over your head, but Sayori has a link to stars, while Asaki has such to the sun. I can't elaborate at this point. But it's a triple-play on names! Which is seen often in manga. What do you guys think?
So here I am, taking another text quiz, and dying to post it. Read it or not, but it's kinda funny. I was on a sugar high while filling it out! style_emoticons/default/laugh.gifFRUITS OF YOUR LABOR
(things you can't live without)Something important on your desk:
InuYasha First Season Boxed Set. Yes. That is more important to me than my PC, for some weird fangirlish reason. But the computer comes in a close second, along with my stack of drawings.If you could afford it at the moment, you would buy:
Paintshop Pro. Well, I can afford it, but Mom and Dad have to pay for it through a card, so it'll be a month before I get it. Other than that, I would buy many CDs, the second season of InuYasha, and all 27 of the translated InuYasha graphic novels.When you sleep you wear:
Whatever shirt I was wearing that day (if it's not dressy), and sweatpants...If your house was burning and you could only save 3 items what would they be:
My computer tower (I would pull all it's plugs out and run. You can always find new monitors and power cords), my drawing file, and my Bible. It has many missionaries' signatures and important notes.MORALS If there were no side effects, you would enjoy being addicted to:
ShoppingA time when you purposely hurt someone emotionally:
I yelled at this girl I didn't know. She was being a complete
[I love the filter, don't you? XD] shallow-case and everyone in the room was already irritated. I haven't done it since.One person you have killed in your thoughts:
There are people I dislike, but I never thought about killing them mentally. I have killed off several of my characters, but usually not because they're hated. style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif And other people's characters, too, out of sheer anger with them. Like the Piraka and Toa Inika when they spout all this taunting garbage, while fighting. I'm like: Stop acting so full of yourself and just SHUT UP AND FIGHT! Come on!
[No bashing intended on Lego, BTW]
I've also killed Jaken, from InuYasha, several times. I was glad that first time he died, but in the next book, Sessho-Maru revived him. AUGG.
I also imagined how Kikyo might have died again. But that was more out of curiousity than anything. I wish their relationship would've been explained and furthered, after her resurrection. The only reason they seem to love one another is because of what happened in the past, not because of who they are now. It felt like they were always on the same square, never moving ahead at all. There was no freshness to the relationship. Probably because Kikyo was already dead, just living through her soul housed in a clay body. With Inu and Kagome, though, there are always new discoveries and movements in their relationship. It feels real.
Anyway, Kikyo did die again recently, and it seemed final. I do love her as an individual character, and cried while reading about her final death. But in light of that whole Kagome-Inu-Kikyo love triangle, I'm excited to watch Inu and Kagome's relationship now. Kikyo and InuYasha became very pensive and dramatic with each other. And Kikyo hardly acted like she loved him, anymore. It more InuYasha who kept their relationship up, due to his memories (which is understandable); but she didn't seem to care. It was irritating.
Okay. Fan rant over. style_emoticons/default/tongue.gifFRIENDSThree traits you look for in a friend:
considerate of other's feelings, open to new things, and of course trustworthyWhich friend makes you laugh most often:
Josie (Felicia). We howl and fall over laughing all the time. Kristel and Anela make me laugh really hard, too.A friend who you can tell anything:
My absolute closest friend. Those of you who know me well probably get who I'm talking about. style_emoticons/default/wink.gifA friend you can go to for advice:
Most all my friends, for advice on varied things. Girls for girl stuff and boys for school, artwork, and writing stuff. Though, girls give good writing advice, too.
Two things appealing about people: They can be so random and varied, one from the next. Also, you can find a way to crack most people open, if you watch and listen hard. I love that part of any relationship; busting them wide open. Heh, kinda like Howl from HMC.EGOYour 3 best qualities:
Make almost any situation fun, and can draw you in five minutes. I am also the Trove of the Deepest Secrets for many of my friends. I swear I've forgotten half the secrets in there anyway, and the other half I shall never tell.Your 3 worst qualities:
Can loose temper when tired or provoked too far; I'm forgetful, and I don't like being touched. No poking, pulling, or patting, especially of my hair!! Hugs and shoulder-leaning are perfectly welcome. ^^You are embarrassed when:
I get too excited, and talk too loud or like an cool dude.The greatest physical pain you ever endured:
Fishhook stuck in foot once. Doesn't THAT make you feel comfortable? style_emoticons/default/tongue.gifThe greatest emotional pain you ever endured:
I used to get lingual hold-backs. Like, I would suddenly start observing the shapes of things, or how shadow was cast across them. Then, I couldn't talk for awhile. I just couldn't. I'd start crying instead. This was back when I was teaching and expanding my right-brain. Right brain controls visual and artistic talent Your left-brain, the language side, is dominant in most people. But you can learn to switch between both sides. However, once you start feeding your right brain, especially after age 10, it's hard to gain control over it.
Anyway, I eventually learned. To this day, though, I have trouble finding the right word for things now and then, and at times cannot pronounce words.Your best physical feature:
Face shape: smooth, parallel, and elvin. I like my body shape too. It's small but strong and not chunky at all.If you could change one thing about your physical appearance what would it be:
Get rid of these stupid glasses. I look great with them, but they're too hard to maintain correctly.Your secret passion:
Why don't you look up "secret" in the dictionary? Secrets are things not meant to be revealed to the public. You have received an ounce of FEH.EMOTIONS Emotion you hide most:
IrritationThe emotion you tend to experience most:
HappinessYou have a huge amount of guilt regarding:
Not witnessing to people I KNOW I should've witnessed to. And not confessing a past love. *sigh*When you are angry you need:
A piece of paper and a pen. Then, I can write everything I hate about the person or situation that made me angry, furiously tear the paper into tiny bits, and throw it out.When you are sentimental you need:
My stuffed husky toy. Hey, it's an important childhood item that is cuddly and worn. You have a stuffed animal hidden somewhere in your room too, don't you? *digs around your room* Don't you?!!
style_emoticons/default/tongue.gifWhen you are in love you need:
To be around the person I love, to think and ponder about him.
Who/what makes you happy: my family, my friends, Bible, and a sharp pencil, thick paper, and several color markers.Who/what makes you sad:
Going away to college in a year, and when people I know die. It's not hard when they've gone to Heaven, but then I cry because everyone else is so sad, and I want them to be happy again.MEMORIESOne of your most peaceful memories:
Whenever I color in Paintshop. It's so peaceful, and you have to concentrate, so other thoughts are blocked out.One of your most tragic memories:
You know, I sat here so long thinking. I don't have any really tragic memories. Because everything worked out for good, so I can't exactly call anything in my life tragic. It was just life working.One of your angriest memories:
Certain times when my parents scolded me and I truly didn't deserve it. Also, when we moved from Seattle to Spanaway.
Seattle: close to bustling happy city, lots of friends, perfect room, five minutes from mall! Spanaway: Just look at the freaking name. It's no forgein word. I'll bet some hick woman came up with it. "We should call it Spanaway because the land just spans away from everything!" AUUGG. I SHALL KILL THE NAMER. Where there are not trailer parks, there are housing developments with the houses six feet apart.
Some wicked part of me wishes one would catch on fire. That way, they'd all burn down, and somebody would sue the penny-pinching cool dude developers, who would stop tearing down every tree in sight to build six houses where each one once stood. Then somebody else would start a petition to make the legal minimum-feet-apart bigger. Then they'd realize we don't have a city council or anything, and we'd get one! Then we'd have a police department, instead of a sheriff who is never around. AND THEY WOULD TRACK DOWN AND SLAY THAT PRINCE CITY GANG THAT'S WRITING CUSS WORDS ON ALL THE DEVELOPMENT SIGNS DOWN OUR MAIN ROAD.
Yes. That would be perfect. Though, I can't complain too much. Our church here is wonderful!
A memory that makes you laugh: Any hilarious moment with my siblings. When we all think something is funny, we DIE laughing! Crazy TV shows, online movies, Patch dancing to music, something on a video game, making special catch phrases we alone understand.A memory that makes you happy:
Sitting and talking with somebody I really cared about. Yeah, it was a guy. style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gifFINALLYIf you had no commitments what would you be doing:
DrawingIf you could have one super power what would it be:
To project whatever image I'm thinking of onto a screen and save it. THAT WOULD ROCK. Can you imagine?!? Mind-movies!! You could tell a story in your head and everyone could see! I've always wanted to do that.If you could start all over:
No! Childhood is just too long for me to live everything through with the knowledge I have now.If you had more time alone you would:
Draw more. Create that manga I've been wanting to.If you had more patience you would:
Get a job teaching piano. I have no patience for teaching or monitoring children who are unrelated to me! Don't know why! However, I have no problem moderating on BZP. Maybe because of the power. Heeee. style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif
