So I stayed up all night rereading THe Ellimist Chronicles. Still not done, though. :'D Man, that book is so tragic! Still, reading it really cheered me up (I was feeling down yesterday).
Too bad I can't figure out what the Ketrans look like, though. I want to draw them.
Wow, haven't updated my lj in a while. I keep thinking about doing it, but sort of forgets it later.
With NaNoWriMo, though, I'm starting to get used to writing a lot. I had a late start, not really writing anything before the 5th.
Now I have like 5k words. 5K words of crap, but still! Maybe I'll actually win NaNo this year. And Maybe some of the stuff I write will have some use besides helping me win NaNo.
I've also gotten back into the mood to draw, although I probably won't have much time for that now that it's November. There's quite a few things I want to draw, though, and also some things I should draw. Requests and stuff (those are not so tempting to draw, tbh). Also, I've tried drawing some slash too. Hee.
Lately I've been playing Pokemon a lot. I can even use wi-fi when I'm at my parents' place. Would have been neat if I could use it all the time, but oh well.
Playing Soul Silver, I decided to pick Totodile. I'm sure I usually picked Cyndaquil in the past, but suddenly I realized Totodile is very cute... and I wanted to name it Louis.
So my team was like this:
Louis the Feraligatr
That Fearow someone in the game "gives" you
Gulla the Ampharos
Reynard the Ninetales
Magic! the Alakazam
Mai the Umbreon (when I'm not carrying some HM slave around with me)
Also been playing some more Diamond, and I soft resetted for a shiny Giratina so I could try the rng method and everything. Heeh.
God, I can't stop listening to this song at the moment
hell yes, I figured out how to put songs on repeat. Haha, I actually spent money on music earlier, haven't done that in a while. Ah well, I've been wanting more Tori Amos CDs for a while, I only had From The Choirgirl Hotel and Under the Pink before (and The Beekeeper or whatever, but that one is boring, so that doesn't count).
Anyway, a friend was visiting me earlier, and helped me look at some schools (thinking of applying to one this fall). I played some Tori Amos too, which reminded her of the time she lived in America. I asked how it had been there, and of course listening to her talking about it made me think of Alfred (nevermind that I think about Hetalia constantly anyway).
But yeah, I'm thinking about studying animation or something, but idk.
Been trying to do some gesture drawings, but I fail at it so badly. It's so tempting to cheat when I don't have anyone but myself to time me, and. I. Must. Erase. Mistakes.
But it's a really good way to practice, since drawing it quickly stops me from overthinking it too much, when I get over the panicking.
Besides that, I'm still not very good at drawing sexy lineart with a tablet, and I suck at coloring but I've always sucked at that haha.
Valentines Day! I actually wouldn't have remembered it, but got asked if I wanted something for it. Also, I showed the Hetalia Valentines comics to someone, and started rereading them myself. I didn't take note of the germania/Italia painting on my first read-through, but hee, that's cute.
Blah, I need more better icons. And I still haven't gotten a good layout, but I'm not sure how to make one.
Lately I've been hanging around on the aphanon_meme also, so I've needed to log out. Sigh what a hassle.
