Erm HiYeah, I'm sorry I do these random hiatuses, guys. I have ADHD and I have a hard time keeping track of everything that needs to be done so I don't have much time for dA right now, especially with this semester of college. Good news? I finally got my first cat since 1998!!! Omg I love her so much but holy shit does she annoy the hell out of me when she wants to play. Bad news? I can't find my tablet pen (was misplaced in the move) but I don't even have time to draw anyways. *sigh* I AM, however, back to photography... sort of. I've been taking pictures of my kitty, Quorra, so that's something. Right? Broke out my Canon Rebel XTi and everything! Ooooh! lol
And I will get to all the comments, favs, and llamas this weekend. I'm so sorry for slacking...
I also have a really good friend who's going through a rough time and on top of that, her puppy, Pogo, tore her ACL and needs surgery. She's having a fundraiser to help pay for the surgery but she's off to a rough start. I donated and am doin
Good NewsI signed my lease last night and now I have my first apartment in America! I'm super excited, and I will finally get to see all of my household goods from Japan pretty soon. I also have some stuff that I haven't seen since 2007. It's been so long that I don't even remember what's in there. haha.
To celebrate, I give you two videos from my good friend Taka. He is a very talented musician and owns his own live music bar called ROGIQ in Japan. They used to have one in Yokosuka but it closed soon after the earthquake; the one in Sasebo is still open though. Anyways, here's Taka. Enjoy
.... on another note, it's around 8:30am right now and I have a 6-8 page rough draft of a research paper due at 2:30pm and I haven't started. This is what happens when I allow myself to be artistic instead of doing my homework. I really really don't want to write this paper right now... or ever. Sad thing is if I actually finish it in time, history te
I haven't done one of these in a whileStolen from :iconvelavter:
1. First thing you wash in the shower? - I always wash my face first. I use a Japanese face wash and it's awesome.
2. What color is your favorite hoodie? - I have so many, but my favorite is green (the one I'm wearing in the self portrait picture I recently posted). It has a white danpa (reverse colored panda) on the back. Danpas are awesome.
3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again? - What kind of kissing are we talking about? If it's intense kissing then no.
4. Do you plan outfits? - Kind of. Considering I usually wear tshirts and jeans some might argue the subject. I do match my underwear and socks based off the shirt even though no one will see them but me. lol.
5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? - I feel kinda neutral right now, which is good considering I didn't have a good birthday yesterday. Sitting on the couch and the lady I'm living with is watching the news and is flipping through channels during the commercials.
6. What's the closest thi
Things Are Looking UpStay tuned for a new Adventure Time drawing by me... and it's gonna be digital!
Tomorrow's my birthday!
Devious Journal EntryI successfully registered for 2 out of the 3 classes I want for this coming semester. I'm having trouble getting approved for the math class I need. This whole thing is frustrating.
This school thing also means that I'm going to be moving very soon. Probably next month. I am SO excited about this because that means I will have access to my Copic markers and other art stuff.
I have been drawing but in stages. I'm not quite done with the two pieces I have right now. One only needs white highlights on it, the other I want to either color with my Copic markers or regular colored pencils. I would use my watercolor pencils on it but the paper isn't conducive and would act all funny. But I did find out that my dad has a scanner he failed to tell me about so I can now scan my drawings instead of taking photos of them. Wooo!
Llama for llama!

Homesick?Last night I dreamt that I was back in Japan. I was so happy. Then I woke up in America.
I'm trying to draw something awesome I see in my head but it's proving to be difficult with my emotions and procrastination....

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate
Donations NeededI know I already posted this in my earlier journal entry but I want to explain the situation more. My good friend, Mandi, is a 100% disabled Navy veteran. Her and I were stationed together in Monterey, CA and were roommates. She's out of the Navy now and her service dog, Pogo, tore her ACL and needs surgery. Since Mandi is on a fixed-income, she can't afford to pay for her puppy's surgery without help. The surgery costs $3500 but she only has $240 raised so far. If you are able and willing to help, the base donation is $10 and would help immensely. Thank you for hearing me out, guys. You're awesome. Here's the link:
