Snowmageddon

Not even kidding. It hasn't fully stopped in three days. The roads are covered in ice, there's a thick layer on my lawn, and my poor doggies are having the hardest time. At least today it's thick enough to where they don't break through....

Snow Daze

Since my state is in danger the risk zone for 5-12" of snowfall in the next two days, my school district decided to cancel all schools tomorrow. Thanks, lack of snow-fighting equipment! And just when I got a sore throat and fever, too! Perfect timing!

Of course, now this means we have to go to school on Valentine's Day... whatever. The day was gonna suck anyways, might as well suck just as badly for the fact that I'll have to see my ex-first-love on The Accursed Day.

At least I can take tomorrow to recover and recoup and maybe work on those fanarts I didn't get to finish because of the crazy weekend and Confirmation Retreat? Dunno... kinda got some Negima/Kamisama Kiss fanarts I wanna work on, plus the realism self-study (aka looking at other peeps' realism stuffies and trying to copy their technique to learn what the heck I'm doing) that I haven't even started.

So many plans... meh. *sips tea* ACK it's cold!

By the way... a word to the wise... don't leave honey that's five years old in your pantry. Sure, it technically never expires, but I seriously doubt you want to have to deal with a million sugar ants while trying to make tea to calm your aggravated throat one blustery winter afternoon.

Fun.

Saddest Ending Ever

I finished A Tale of Two Cities last night, and I tell ya, I knew what was gonna happen to Sydney, but I didn't get to prepare myself for it. When I read those two words (well, if you count two hyphenated words as one, then one), I just s...

*wails* Tomoe~!

KYAA I just finished Kamisama Kiss and I think I'm gonna cry~

The ending got me so bad. I knew it was a romance anime but seriously... I didn't see it coming that Tomoe would do a virtual--though subdued--180 and do what he did in the last few minutes of the last episode... Tomoe, you bad fox~!

Granted, it's not the best anime to watch when trying to get over a severe case of heartbreak, but it was so adorable I couldn't resist~ and I mean, seriously, Tomoe's dubber was fricking J. Michael Tatum. That face AND Sebby's voice put together and I almost melted watching it. Especially after the Lucky Hammer Incident.

My second favorite scene was in the first episode when Nanami thought, "Tomoe? Is that his [Mikage's] wife?" I laughed so hard, my dad kicked me out of his room (I was watching it on my lappy) so I had to go in the kitchen. Of course, my favorite scene was the ending (I tend to find the last scene of an anime my favorite, or at least that's how FMAB, Ouran, Soul Eater, and Fruits Basket were).
I sense a trend...

I have decided that Nanami and Tomoe are my #2 Ship. (First is my OTP EdWin, third is NxHilda.)

Anyways, if you like a good romance anime, go watch it!
If you need a laugh... go watch it!
If you enjoy seeing pretty boys abuse each other with animal ears, go watch it!

Ciao for now~
Love, Elricz <3

New Term!

I survived my finals (for semester classes), and caught a lucky break since my year-long classes didn't have midterms, yay!

Second semester started Thursday (which is an awkward day of the week to start on, I think), and now I have Spanish 3 Honors and Biology I Honors instead of Algebra 3 and Dance 2.

It was funny, the first day of Spanish, our first writing assignment was to write a little paragraph about what we were worried about, what our goals were, etc. so Srta. would have a writing sample to go by as far as what we remembered. In my paragraph (in Spanish) I wrote, "I don't remember much about Spanish, but I'm sure I remember more than I think I do."
Ohhh the irony...!

Biology has been entertaining; my teacher has a rabbit named Calvin who was let out of his cage to run about while we did our classwork yesterday. He's a gray flop-eared and pretty adorable :3 I talked to him while working; since we had to make a map of the classroom to-scale, I was measuring the wall in the back corner of the room when I asked him to hop a few paces to the left so I wouldn't step on him. He complied nicely and without any fuss :D I am totally not a bunny whisperer, nor am I crazy... I kinda *extremely gently* suggested he hop away by pressing the side of my foot against his behind, without hurting him.

We've got no school on Monday, so my gal-pals and I were thinking about hanging out at the 'mall' five minutes from my house (it's more of a giant shopping complex than an indoor facility). And... I've been doing more artwork lately that I'm trying to figure out how to get onto my lappy... traditional pencil artwork doesn't really get along with my scanner, pooh :/ But I will find a camera of high enough quality to do my artwork justice.

My friends gave me a confidence boost by emphatically telling me how awesome my artwork is... like usual, I took the compliment by shrugging it off to the tune of "I'm decent," but was reminded that I have my own art identity when my cousin (of quite a more impressive art caliber than myself, to be honest) told me my art was awesome.

3... 2... 1... *blasts off to the moon, leaving a confetti trail in her wake*
