Quick update on life. One of my oil paintings got accepted into another universitie’s art contest. C: Super thrilled/excited! Its an honor just to be accepted. I’m going to go pick it up from my dads place and take it to the school so I’ll post pics when I get it. <3
Just got off work. I realized today a few things. I’ve never been happier since I got this apartment. I feel like all my home worries are gone. (For those of you who don’t know I’m not ashamed to say I was in fact homeless for the past 2 years.) Through all that I still went to school full-time and worked. I would constantly be stressing about little things like money for food, washing my clothes, homework, finals, the school finding out I was homeless and so on. A few of my friends once told me I was the most independent and mature person their age they knew. I’m happy to say those friends are the reason I’ve made it this far. That and my boyfriend of course. ;) their confidence in me allowed me to have confidence in myself.
I also have found out that since changing my major to illustration I have been much more confident of what I want to do for a living. I’m committed to making this my major even if it means going to a school that is farther away. My art skills have been blossoming to the point of me being able to simply tell the difference between semesters.
I no longer stress about work so much. Many of my managers have told me I am one of the best workers they’ve had in a long time. Unlike everyone else at work I do things before their asked and finish early so I can help others with their departments. I openly asked to be trained in the bakery and meats (which I am now certified in) so I can literally run the whole grocery side of walmart if I have to. I won’t lie that’s a lot for just one person but it helps others to know that if something happens and no one shows I can package the meat or ice the cake. (Mmmm cake.)
Anyway…that’s just what I wanted to say. I’m in the car currently waiting to go home. The boyfriend is talking cars and shop to a guy.
But I still liked the movie enough to wish for a sequel.
And more Garret Hedlund. He’s also got such a beautiful name in my opinion, am I right or not?
Tron: Legacy was a sequel. The original came out in 1982.
Please do your research
^ Actually Disney didn’t want this Tron to be a sequel since they plan to make it into a trilogy if all goes well. They did however base it heavily off of the original enough to give it plot people would recognized from the original. The plan to go in a completely different direction with the sequels.
-wake the hell up.
-go to 10am class.
-coffee and Daft Punk
-get a few things for the new apartment.
-go to gym for orientation.
-work the fuck out
-go home to new apartment.
Sounds like a good day bro. Also I moved into my new apartment last night. At 1am. Don’t ask I do everything at night based on my fucked up sleep schedule.
I’m on a 50/50 line here about the new Daft Punk craze. I admit it’s produced some amazing art, gifs, pictures, blogs and so on but what people need to realize is that they have been around for AWHILE now. I’m going to admit I love Tron and the only really reason I wanted to see it was my friend and I wanted to see Daft but I’ll also admit that although she is a knew fan (which I have no problem with and am happy we can share even more now together) I have liked them since Jr. High. Which I WILL admit may not be as long as some fans (I’m only 20) but I appreciated them for their uniqueness and music not just for their robot helmet wearing ways. I didn’t even see a pic of them till I was older and I was confused why they were wearing helmets. I won’t be one to say “Well when you all were listening to B. Spears I was listening to Daft…” Cus lets face it I’m pretty sure everyone listened to Spears whether they want to admit it or not. I have a WIDE variety of music I like. Daft just seems to take its own separate part in my heart. I’ve always liked techno and industrial metal more than pop and rock. No I have not gone to any of their concerts but yes I wish and hope one day I can. No I do not own a lot of their things besides the CD’s which have long ago been scratched beyond repair since I was a ya know…a kid when I first got the CD’s. I do however have them still in a box in storage and long ago transfered everything digitally.
Another thing I will admit that although I did listen to them fairly regularly I didn’t listen to them everyday (Like I do now once I saw Tron and needed to immerse myself into them again. C:) When I see the new hype to meet them and the “OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG DAFFFFFFFFT” comments all I can do is face palm and think Is this really what they wanted? NO. They never cared about being famous nor did they care about getting “out there” all they wanted to do was deliver good music to people.
For those of you that follow me this isn’t about you I swear so please don’t take offense. Sure I’m just as big of a fan girl as the rest (maybe not so crazy…but eh.) I want to meet them just as much as you all do. I would do just about anything to be able to hug them (let alone rape Guy *ahem*) and talk to them. I just really needed to get this off my chest. Please don’t be harsh.
Having a 8am course feels just like going to high school again.
It also doesn’t help that my REM waves are messed up. I no longer feel sluggish or tired at night which is what the waves do. Instead I take 3 naps a day to catch up on sleep. This results in me getting 3 hours of sleep then going to a 8am class and feeling like I just came back from an Alive concert. Oh Daft Punk you sure know how to party.
Drawing some cute ass Daft Punk stuffs at the moment. Its all done in pencil. Don’t know if I will ink it. Meh you tell me when I upload it. Problem is that I don’t have a scanner and my phone just died. (Yes from listening to music. I am so bad at that.) Soooooooooooooooooo:
Please for the love of god in about an hour someone remind me to post the picture I just drew.
I must say this is one of my all time favorite songs by Depeche Mode. Mostly because the non-subtle way the song is ALL about sex. Any good writer would and SHOULD know this is a great song to have listeners hear when reading fanfic or love scenes. I want to have readers not only listen to Daft Punk songs but this also when they read my fic. (It’s almost done.) I added this to prove a point that I’m not JUST a Daft Junkie. Although it feels like that at times. When I’m up on a cash register at work my mind plays familiar tunes and I tend to hum and mumble the words to myself. This lets me know I NEED MY FIX. Back to homework now. Its just the shading cells for Drawing II that I was talking about but GAH they take forever.
I absolutely can not stop listening to this damn remix. I love the Alive 2007 album so much its not even ok. Its more like an obsession. Also did anyone hear about the Rumor that the new band The Third Twin (TTT) is really Daft Punk and their releasing the cd they originally made for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack that Disney denied? I sure as hope its them (some serious sources are saying they can claim it really is them but I won’t believe it till DP says so…which they might not since ya know they came out as TTT to get around legal issues. *shrug*) So anyway I’ve been listening to a lot of Daft and of course TTT lately. I can only upload one song a day (obviously) but I’ll upload Evil Mind by The Third Twin tomorrow and you’ll understand the ungodly awesomeness my brain has been soaking up lately.
My boyfriend is so sick of me listening to this song (he can hear it even with me listening to it with headphones on. LOL)
That awkward moment when you realize school starts tomorrow and your not ready at all...
So yes school starts tomorrow. And I still have to show up early to sign up for two more classes. sigh this really isn’t going to be good. I hope they let me in if not I need to find two extra blow off classes. Since this is my last semester I’m not worried about it since I signed up for the two classes I need but I want to add on an extra math and art class. Along with signing up for the fitness center since I’m going to start working out! :D This semester whether I like it or not is my time to get to the grind. I need to pick a full four year university to transfer to. I’m thinking of playing it safe and going to either Blackburn where all my friends go and major in art or go to Columbia for illustration. This is really hard for me to choose since I hate to admit it but I’m dependent on my awesome boyfriend. Not like money wise (although he spoils me) but just kinda support wise. He’s my rock. I can’t sleep alone thanks to him. I can’t go a week without seeing him and hanging out. Seriously when I went to Arizona for the summer I like died inside. I think it’ll be good for us if I can go away but I’m just such a baby. This is really pathetic but its the truth. But I also know if it comes between me and my goal in life I would drop him. If someone were to offer me a full scholarship to Columbia or bb I would go. But its not like that and I’m paying for it by myself. So DECISIONS DECISIONS.
OK so those of you that love Tron and Daft Punk will love what I am currently working on. Don’t get me wrong its in the design stages but I’m going to be making a Tron jacket. The first one I make will probably be made with felt on top of a black form fitting zip up jacket like the north faces jackets and have electric blue felt and a user disk filled with stuffing on the back. I’m hoping if this goes well I shall make a second one but with pockets where the glow should go and put lighting in it. Maybe something like glow sticks or if I get good at it electric lighting. I’m drawing up a few designs as I’m sure ill make a bunch of cute felt ones for my friends like Naopao maybe in different colors. Who knows maybe I’ll take commission on it. I know I wont sell the electrical ones because I’ll probably put way to much effort into it and wont be able to part with them. I’ll upload some sketches of it later. I’m about to go to work 3-11 so I’ll post on my break and lunch. I’m really excited to be sewing again. =u=
