So I got back to school, then realized that my internet is still down. I made phone calls, I restarted the modem (twice).... Nothing. So I'm stuck at either the library, or [ profile] randomfangirl29's house, both of which are options I just can't use every day. Not to mention this is finals week anyway, so I really am just too busy to even make a marginal attempt to be here.

I've already not been keeping up with my flist. /o\ I'm probably not going to start reading it again until Friday after my Psych final. I'm sorry, guys. I'm really going to miss you, but then it will be summer, and I'll be here so much that I promise we'll get sick of each other. <3

In the meantime, here's what I've been up to:

I made a Dreamwidth account that I'll probably only use to crosspost. Idk. Everyone was doing it, I enjoy leaping off of bridges. My account over there is spazz. GRANT ME ACCESS, MY FRIENDS.

Also, I've been working on a little something I hope to have finished soon. The lineart is all on separate layers so I can move them around when I'm done. I'M LEARNING, YOU GUYS!!!

Have a wonderful week, and a wonderful Supernatural day, and I'll talk to each and every one of you the second I get back. Try not to have too much fun without me. <3

It's multifandom and all the cool kids are doing it, so you know you want in on that madness. :D

I'm back in art class fiddling around with my project for "The Fall". I've been working on about 16 different ideas that just didn't want to work, so today I just decided to screw it and go with the Poster. Which looks like this:

Fine, I'll spare your flists )

So that's coming right along. And now I have to run so I can have dinner with my family and get all the stuff I forgot at home last night in my mad rush to get back to school. This includes the first season of 24. Yes, I've become that sad when it comes to watching clips of Misha. Please send help.
spazz: ([BtvS] Workin)
Sooooooo my Photoshop teacher just gave us a new assignment which we have a month to work on. I want to do something INTENSE, otherwise I'm going to finish in a week, and that would make me sad.

I already did the zombie thing, so that's out.

I have to make a picture that's a narrative from a film or book with a twist; she said I could recreate a film shot, but I kind of want to do something awesome. I need help brainstorming movies.

I want something with a prominent subject that would require a lot of manipulation; I love working with faces and all that kind of stuff.

So if you can think of a movie or a book I should base it on, that'd be lovely, and I'd love you forever.

I might even drawn you powerpuffs. ;D ;D ;D ;D
spazz: (Default)
So I finished my first project for Photoshop class and my teacher loved it and I'm kind of proud of it, so I'm showing it to y'all. :D

And now the war is over... )

I know none of my posts have been very substantive lately. I'm a little scattered; school kinda broke me this week. I promise to attempt catching up on my flist this weekend. Hell, I may even get that meme started.
spazz: ([SPN] 0_0)
First thing's first: I've got two tests this week and another on Monday, and they're going to be draining all my time and resources, so I can't put the meme up until next week sometime. I really, really want to do it, and all I have left to do is make the graphic, but yeah. Sorry about the wait!

In other news, my Photoshop class was cancelled today so I decided to take some artistic liberties and make an image comprising all my hopes for S5.

Alright, back to studying/going to the store to buy massive amounts of cheese and caffeine!
spazz: ([BtvS] Workin)
I should probably post over at [ profile] mishaland for this, but I figured I'd take some time to talk with the rest of my flist.

Basically, here's the deal: I'm stuck in Photoshop class for at least 3 hours, probably 4. I know all the basic stuff, which is what she's teaching. This leaves me 3 hours of solid boredom during which I make macros/surf the internets.

Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to install an IM program on the school's computers, so it's a lonely existence. I also don't have my tablet, so I'm limited to making really, really hilariously bad manips for great justice.

So help me entertain myself! Talk to me, ask me to make you an icon, tell me about your day, show me hilarious macros. You know. Fun times. And for my newer flisters, I guess I could get to know you a little better if you happen to be online right now. :)

So the offer stands from now until about 5PM EST.

I just walked across campus twice in the ice and cold and wind and snow, and I can't feel my feet, but I don't care.


*dances around with GLEE*

Now I just have to pick a minor.
spazz: (christmas 2)

But I'm almost done with my first paper! \o/

Also there is ~*SNOW*~! Like, about 3 inches of it! The weatherman didn't tell me lies last night! :D


Last night, I downloaded the episode of Charmed with Misha in it from [ profile] mishaland mostly because I wanted to see tiny!Misha out of my morbid sense of curiosity. Omg, y'all. HE IS ADORABLE. Like I couldn't have seen that coming, but still! He has a tiny voice! And tiny hair! And tiny acting abilities! Also there are 90s clothes to mock, and horrible special effects. I know the clips are up on youtube, I'm just too lazy to search them out. Suffice it to say, I think you should! ;D ;D ;D ;D

Song for today: Greensleeves - Loreena McKennitt

I. Love. Kansas.

It's my dad's fault. I really need to steal his CDs and rip the full library to my iTunes; I just don't have enough right now. Kansas is my music of chillaxation and occasional rock...axation. Today I've been listening to "Dust in the Wind" far too much. <33333 I've often fiddled with maybe learning it on my ukulele, but I'm failtastic at finger-picking. I have a tutorial on how to do it, I've just not had time to read/watch through it... Maybe I will over Christmas break. As it stands, I tried it super slow just using my thumb like I always do tonight, and it was incredibly fun. Getting myself a ukulele is one of the best things I have ever done.

I really hate the fact that I can't seem to write this paper. My roommate's gone for the rest of the weekend, so I'm considering locking myself in my dorm room until at least one of the two papers is done. I have to go dumpster diving this weekend for my art project, so I do promise to go outside at least once. I need to find bike parts and random mechanical-looking levers. I'm gonna build a bird, and use Mountain Dew bottles for feathers. I'm thinking about spray-painting the whole thing bronze aside from the bottles. It's going to be awesome. I am so going to miss art class.

When I get the CD with pictures of all my projects, I'll put them all up here so y'all can see how much of a sculptor I am now. :)

Since it's Thursday, and I'm a hopelessly shameless nerd, I'm putting up Silent Night. And because I do somewhat value your hearing, Bing Crosby's version as well. Oh, but I'm a generous soul. ;D

Silent Night - Supernatural

I officially give up.

I did draw the Apush beast today for the first time in a long time, though, along with a few craptacular self-portraits, so whatever. I'm working on it. The thing was that I wasn't working on plain old anatomical sketches like I was supposed to, I was working on just about everything with the intention that it would end up as fanart because I am addicted to positive reinforcement. At least now I'm working on what I want, and I'm working on a much wider breadth of stuff, so I'm not quite as mad at myself artistically.


Now I've got two papers, one of which is due next Wednesday, and neither of which I've started. I should probably be getting on that. I have just about zero motivation, though. Also I need to go to the store or I'm not going to have anything to eat for dinner or lunch tomorrow, nor will I have anything to drink. So. There you are. Tonight I'm going to try to get the first paper at least halfway done (it's only gotta be 6 pages), which is totally doable, and it's not like it's due tomorrow. I feel pretty mellow about the whole thing, tbqh, which is probably good.

Now if I could just convince myself to trudge all the way to the store through the freezing mushy wilderness. Yeeeeeeah not quite as excited about the snow anymore.

Monty Python starts their own Youtube Channel

This is why I love them. Now if I could only buy "And Now For Something Completely Different".

*puts on list of things to do*

I've been working too hard today, I needed that. :) It's cold outside; 20 degrees at most every morning, and I've only got one pair of pants to make it through the week. I'm going to be getting creative with tights, aren't I? I have a job interview on Friday, though, and I was hoping to not look... insane, so we'll see, I suppose.

Sabrina wants to see Twilight at the midnight showing Thursday; she's never read the books, just heard about the mind-numbing lulz from me, and she's seriously gung-ho. I don't think she understands the massive hysteria of the fangirls, though. I have that interview Friday, so I don't think it'll happen. Also, I value my life.

We'll probably go Friday night.

I'm going to need so much therapy afterward.

Oh dear.

I've been up since 5AM, am running only on Mountain Dew and string cheese, and am ROCKING at studying so hard that I'm taking a break to watch the Daily Show and update my LJ. GO ME! \o/

*does a dance*

Reason I'm updating? I read the spoiler for myself rather than just taking second-hand information from Elizabeth, so here's another spoiler cut. )

So, you know. That's exciting. And distracting, as I'm supposed to be taking a test today. XD Omg I shouldn't have drank that whole Mountain Dew. I'm never going to calm down, and now I'm going to be sleep-walking my way through art class and I'm supposed to operate heavy machinery and OH LAWDY DEAR GRACIOUS ME BACK TO STUDYING.

spazz: (helmet)
I don't know what I was smoking when I scheduled a second art class all the way out in that warehouse. I mean, I love the place to death (there was a dog! A big dog! Wandering around last time and it was ADORABLE), but it's so far. The fact that it's 30 degrees and misting isn't helping matters. Also my impending wood shop experiences... I'm really hoping I got the right wood and can make it through class without losing a limb. *crosses fingers*

I'm absolutely horrid at using power tools. Probably because my immediate reaction to holding drill/saw/sharp object that makes loud noise is to throw my head back and laugh maniacally. I would make an awesome super villain.

In other news, my musical tastes have recently turned to awesome chicks playing piano. So I thought I'd share. :D I'm such a giver.

I can't wait for SPN Thursday. KINDA SORTA SPOILERFREENESS FOR THE WIN omg I'm so spoiled at this point I shouldn't even be allowed to say that... at least I know nothing for 10!

I found this awesome Reddit-like site for music this morning: Cherrypeel. It seems to be in it's formative stages right now, so there's a lot more indie than there is, say, metal, but... I have a feeling if this thing picks up it could get awesome. I'm kind of obsessed with "C'mon Sea Legs" by Immaculate Machine, so I thought I'd pass this new awesomeness on to my flist and the internets at large. :)

Today is mostly being spent in excitement for tomorrow. There will be cake! And a ~*SURPRISE*~! OH GOOD GOLLY GOSH. :D

I got my first paper back with a good grade this morning, so I'm feeling pretty good about my academic standing at the moment. I'm gonna have to pull at least one of my grades up, but for now, I'm in a decent enough place to skate through the rest of the semester. I think. This is still partial speculation on my part, but... it's nice to finally not feel stressed. I think having both my midterm papers finished is helping exponentially on this front. Also the fact that I kick ass in Sculpture class.

I'm definitely going down there Friday night and painting til I'm satisfied with my monstrosity. <3 It just needs a super-pretentious arty name... It's an abstraction off a leaf, any suggestions?

I've decided that after my last midterm on Monday, I'm sleeping for a day.

More likely I'll just go crazy and finish coloring that picture of Ruby and Milo. It's adorable, if I do say so myself. *has the lines done*

So... yeah. I don't know if I mentioned this here before or not, but I've been watching True Blood whenever I get a chance to go home and download the episodes, and it is epic crack. And I love Tara. I've only seen through the 5th episode, but I keep hearing that the last one was amazing, and I'm kind of getting excited. *hopes this isn't all for naught*

In other news, my first English teacher (I have 3... OH GOD WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF?) told me he was surprised because, while I never say anything in class, I did really amazing on my midterm. This excites me because 1) I no longer appear stupid to him, so he can keep that frame of reference in mind when he grades my paper and 2) OMG MAYBE HE'LL BE NICE WHEN HE GRADES MY PAPER. \o/

I'm just... very tired over here. I'm back aboard the failboat in regards to keeping up with my flist, but this paper isn't gonna write itself, and these midterms need some semblance of studying for. Also, I suck. *shrug* I'll be back to full-steam random-commenting as soon as I can, I assure you.

Wow, I totally forgot that Pushing Daisies is on tonight. Good thing we have pecan pie for tomorrow; I've been having withdrawal, and that show doesn't help. Also, nuns.

Also also, shame on anyone who has never seen The Sound of Music. I mean, seriously. How do you sleep at night? *pointed shaming glare at [ profile] tahu and anyone else who happens to never have seen it*
spazz: (ROCK!)

I only hope to someday be as awesome as he. *starts looking around for some duct tape and a kazoo*

In other news that actually pertains to my life, I totally didn't kill myself in art class. Not during woodshop orientation, and not during class yesterday when I was the first one to have to use the handheld jigsaw and I broke the blade and everyone stared at me and it was so awkward but I'M NOT DEAD AND ALL MY PIECES ARE CUT OUT AND I NEED TO TAKE A PICTURE OF IT AND PUT IT ON THE INTERNETS CAUSE I'M SO PROUD!


In other, other news that pertains both to my lack of seriousness and ownership of a ukulele, what should I learn to play next? I've recently learned "You Shook Me All Night Long", and that's just ridiculously.... ridiculous-sounding on Eugene, and yeah. Suggestions, plz. All I ever learn on my own are sad, angsty songs (Read: Grapevine Fires and Astronaut), and those don't work on a ukulele. Trufax.

Omg I'm in such a good mood today. I think it's SPN. :)
spazz: (buffy workin)
Now all I have to do is study for my PoliSci test. I just can't shake the feeling that that paper isn't good. I don't know how to tell objectively if a paper is good at all; I'm really, really bad at getting good grades on papers. Ah well.

I'm so tired that I may just go to sleep early tonight, and get up around 2 or 3 tomorrow to study. I don't know... I have a little art homework, too.

The entire world is going to spoil me for Pushing Daisies. I just know it. XD; I don't get to watch it until this weekend whenever I go home to do my laundry. Maybe even Sunday night. I know. So I'm thinking of maybe, maybe watching it in the middle of all my studying. I can totally do that. It's just that the airtime is badly placed for a break.

I really wish it wasn't this week that I had all this crap. Ah, well. I get to make a video for Supernatural this weekend that I've officially been planning for two months. Yeah, I know, I'm insane.

But it's going to be fun. :)

Yay for not being stressed out even though I should be! :D

I am not going to die. I am going to be fine.

I can write a paper and study for my PoliSci test in one week. And I can knock out a rough draft for next Wednesday this weekend and move at the same time. I can. I've crammed for tests in shorter amounts of time than this.

I even made myself a schedule! I don't even have to start working on my paper until 7PM tonight!


There's chocolate chip cake and frolicking on Thursday. And I can even tape Pushing Daisies and watch it.

In three months when I have spare time again.

So, 3rd semester? Eating me alive. XD;;

BUT! I think I might've found my calling in life. I went to Advertising Club tonight (BY MYSELF OMGGGGG! :D), and the speaker was amazing. Not to mention I've always loved doing graphics and coming up with posters and such. I'm really happy. I may start majoring in either marketing or advertising next semester; it was that awesome.

And it's not just the meeting; a lot of things seem to have come together to show me what I should be doing with my life. Especially making those posters for my dad, so... yeah. I'm just kind of proud of the fact that I seem to be able to go places by myself and talk to people and holy crap you guys, I might be able to be a functioning member of society.

And Supernatural starts in 15 days.

And oh. I was forced against my will to watch 90210 last night. So....... [ profile] tahu made me flowcharts. :) Then I made a mildly spoilery one for Supernatural, cause I'm crazy. XD It includes my new favorite crack theory, which I will elaborate on at.... a future time.

Seriously, I wanted to turn it off after 6 minutes, but they wouldn't let me. *has terrible friends* )


So what's been going on with y'all?
spazz: (tired sad ruby)
Guys, I'm so sorry I haven't been commenting or replying or anything, this past week has been madness and these two days have been hell. *sigh*

I don't get along with my roommate. Well, we get on fine, she just doesn't seem to want to talk to me. Which is making this intensely awkward. I'm hoping something crazy happens that we are forced to bond over, but barring a nuclear apocalypse of some kind, I seriously doubt it's going to happen.

Then my mom calls me this morning to tell me she had to go to the hospital in an ambulance (after waking up with her heart racing, and continuing to do so nonstop) where they told her she had "supraventricular tachycardia", so she'll be fine but I can't help but be a little worried and even more stressed out now, and it's not her fault, but... yeah. I don't even know.

I just don't need all this stress right now. I need to figure out how I'm going to not live on campus next year, I need to figure out how we're going to get our rooms officially switched, and I need to get food and books.

And I haven't eaten yet today, and I have a meal plan, and I can use it, I'm just too shy and have been shot down too many times to ask my roommate if she wants to go with me. So now my crippling social phobias are forbidding me from going out to get food. WHY, CRUEL WORLD.

But it's not all sadness and epic angst. [ profile] tahu and I are watching random SPN episodes (Shadow may be our new favorite ;D ;D ;D ;D) to drown our sorrows, and I had a blast at the Student Center party with Sabrina last night (she gave me The Prestige for my birthday, which means I got two Christian Bale movies... HOORAY). Oh! We also painted dorky Batman and Joker shirts cause that's our current obsession. :) I am finding random happiness, and making all kinds of plans to not be in this room a lot, and I think it's going to be ok. So yeah. Ok.

Everything will be ok. :)
