Hey guys! I think I briefly mentioned that I'm going to Otakon this year. I meant to mention it earlier, but I kept pushing it off until the actual weekend of the convention... oops.
Anyway, I'll be at the convention on Saturday and Sunday. 8D Oh, and my older sister will be there too! This year we decided to try and actually make our costumes like REAL COSPLAYERS. ...although, we have almost no sewing experience, so... it was really rough. xD; We decided to more or less go as a Klonoa 2 cosplay group. I'm going as Leorina and Takara is going as Tat. We're actually still working on them...! ;u; HAHA... Takara's going to make my scarf, and I'm going to add a collar to her dress. Since our costumes aren't done, i can't really post pictures... but I'll try to post some pictures after the convention! :D
I'm assuming there's not going to be many Klonoa-themed cosplays, so if you're going to Otakon and you see a Tat, Leorina, and Klonoa, it's probably me and my sisters. Feel free to say hi if you see me! :D
Though I don't really know if any of you are even going to Otakon this year... >u>
Aaaanyway, sorry for not really being active this past week. ""orz I've been busy working on my costume. (and being lazy...) I do check everything in my backroom, though. When the convention's over, I'll try to get back into the groove of things and comments/etc. :D
Also, it was my otakuversary on Tuesday! :D I actually thought it was yesterday... but I was wrong. -u-b This marks my 5th year on theOtaku.com. WOO HOO. I was actually wanting to be really cool by posting a thank you pic as my 300th picture on my otakuversary. But that didn't happen, so.... >3>;; It is almost my 300th picture upload, though. Anticipate it to be a thank you to everyone. 8D
Mood: Hungry aaagh...
I got my AP scores some weeks ago, and forgot to tell you guys! :o I'm disappointed and satisfied with them at the same time.
I got a 5 on AB Calc. That was expected, though, because it was the easier of the calculus classes... and I got a 5 on the practice test.
I got 4' s on Physics (M) and on Physics (E&M). Idk how this happened, because I totally bombed both of those tests. xD I knew a 5 was out of the picture for physics, so I was really aiming for a 3 on both of them... >3> That's what I'd been getting on the practice tests we'd been taking. My school doesn't take 4's on physics for credit, though... "orz Oh well.
I got a 4 on AP Lit, and a 4 on AP Gov.
WEHHHHHH.... """orz I really felt like I got 5's when I took them, so I was really disappointed. I'm mostly disappointed with AP Lit because my teacher had been giving me 9's on practically all my essays this year, which gave me a FALSE SENSE OF DOING WELL... I remember the very first essay I did was graded by a different teacher... and I got a 5. That's probably where I've been at this whole school year. ;m; WHY WERE YOU SO EASY ON ME, ENGLISH TEACHER...
Gov I more or less accept becasue I didn't study much for the test. The class was really easy, but I started to get lazy in the 2nd half of the year. I'm just upset because I made sure I put extra stuff in all my essay just in case... but I guess I got some things wrong with the definitions. "orz GUH.
But it's okay I guess, my college still accepts 4's for AP LIt and AP Gov for college credit.
SO YEAH, THERE'S THAT. It's really weird that it's already the end of July. ;m; COME BACK, SUMMER... Well, at least Otakon is soon.
Alright, the end of this post. Happy Friday! :D
Ba bweedie-bwoo bwop bwop. ...Bweee-de bwoo-de bwop bwop.... Ba bweedie bwoodie bwop! I have this song stuck in my head, because it's playing in my house in Animal Crossing. BA BWEEDIE BWOO BWOP! Okay.
I almost forgot to do Byakuyarox1's questions! I was tagged some weeks ago... whoops. .u.;
1. What's your most embarrassing moment?
I have a lot of embarrassing moments because I'm a naturally embarrassing person... But for some reason, I can't think of any specific one right now! .___. There was this one time in 7th grade where my drama teacher said something funny, and everyone laughed. Being weird, I decided I didn't want to laugh at it. But the more I thought about the joke and the longer it sat in my head, the funnier it got... when out of the blue, I start laughing. The joke already finished, and no one is even laughing anymore... so yep.
2. If you could have three wishes, what would they be?
Idk. Depends on what I'm thinking about at the time I get the wishes...? xD;
I DON'T FEEL LIKE THINKING RIGHT NOW, OKEY
3. Where would your dream home be located?
Somewhere where it doesn't cost much to pay rent, comic artists are needed, and there aren't any evil people. :V AW YEAH!
4. Would you rather have short hair or long hair?
Short hair, which is what I have right now. I bought this long wig for my cosplay for Otakon, and IT'S SO HARD TO TAKE CARE OF LONG HAIR. It just tangles all the time, and it's impossible to brush.... GUH.
By the way, I'm going to Otakon! 8D I'll talk about that later.
5. If you could have any other talents than what you already have, what would they be?
DOING VIBRATO WELL ON THE VIOLIN.
Uh.... I'd like to learn how to play normal guitar someday rather than the bass guitar, but for the time being I'll just mess around on the acoustic and sort of teach myself...
Oh, and I want to be able to do pull ups, like my little sister.
6. Dream job?
COMIC WRITER/ARTIST! This probably is my dream job, but the chances are so unlikely that I don't mind just keeping it as a hobby.
7. Most despised anime/manga character?
HRM... Well, I used to hate Sasuke a lot for no real reason. I don't really despise any at the moment. :D YEY.
8. If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?
I dunno. Who's a friendly famous person? xD; Oh, Ellen DeGeneres, maybe. :D
9. Would you give up a once in a lifetime chance to stay with your friends?
Probably not, because while my friends are great, I'm not very dependent on them. I'd still be able to keep in contact with them from far away, anyway. :M
10. Favorite quote?
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle." Thanks for the tip, Plato! I'm actually really bad with quotes, but this is one I read somewhere and for some reason remember.
11. What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
Hm... Well, I hate roller coasters, so riding Space Mountain in Disney World (or is it land?) was probablyt he scariest thing for me. :V
I TAG NO ONE, BECAUSE... I don't have a reason. :V
So anyway, summer's going decently. I've been really bored lately and waking up at 11:00 nearly everyday, where I usually wake up at 9:00 on weekends. ;u; WHY... I haven't been doing much drawing except that random SteGabe comic (which is almost done, if it's annoying any of you). I've been wanting to draw Danny lately. But then the desire to draw him sort of passes, and then I just play Animal Crossing. -u-b I've been watching a lot of Sailor Moon lately because my little sister randomly got into it recently. xD We found an old DVD in our PS2 case, and she and Takara watched the whole thing. xD We just finished the Sailor Moon S series on youtube... I didn't watch all of it, but I did watch the season finale/etc. We all feel bad for Sailor Pluto, who's always 3rd wheeling with Sailro Neptune and Sailor Uranus. :T But at the same time it's kind of hilarious. I'm probably going to be watching the first Sailor Moon season with my sisters, next... xD;
SO THERE. How's life, I guess? :D
Currently working on: This Comic, a pic of Noland and Chrys, I don't even know what else anymore... xD;;
Recently added: This Comic, pages 1-5
Hey guys! :D I'm officially on spring break, now. And also...
Which is weird and stuff, because I still feel like I have to go to school on Monday. :V;;; But yeah, graduation was fun! My family came down, and we all had dinner together. It's been a while since my grandparents from both sides of my family have seen each other, so they seemed happy to talk to each other. My mom's mom and my dad's mom are such complete opposites, though... My mom's mom is very strict, and my dad's mom is very fancy-free. 8D They seem like the kind of pair I would come up with as characters. xDD
So there you go. That's where my love of opposites comes from: my family. -u-b
Also, I went to prom two weeks ago. :o It was unsurprisingly boring. I didn't have a horrendous time, just a very unemotional and normal time. I didn't dance much, because it just felt weird to me. :V It was also a lot louder than I expected! .____. But at least I have the experience, now. It was a good research opportunity. :m Which is actually the main reason I wanted to go, I think... if I never went to a dance, I wouldn't be able to write about one, if it ever comes up in one of my story-things.
I have photos, though!
Yep. Takara did my hair, make-up, and picked out my accessories. I wanted to wear a short dress, but decided against it because I would've gotten flack from one of my friends. xD;
On another different note, I saw Third Eye Blind play last weekend! :DDD They're one of my favorite bands right now, so that was exciting. What I wanted most was for them to play Wounded and Motorcycle Drive By--which they did--so that was good. :9 They even closed with Motorcycle Drive By, which the singer said they never did before... SO SPECIAL US, IN THE CROWD. First people to see them close with that song. 8D
And yeah. That was a thing.
Lastly, I've been tagged by Hifsa!
1.Where do you live?
I won't give specifics, but I live in the United States. ;o
2.Where would you rather been, if you got to chose?
Aha, I like it here just fine. :9
3.Have you ever slept in the bathroom?
Nope! Well... maybe I've fallen asleep in the bathtub while bathing, before. I don't know. xD
4.What are you up to these days?
Not much! :m Just hanging around and playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf. IT'S GREAT!! :,D
5.Have you ever eaten noodles with your hands?
6.An anime that made you cry?
Hm... I don't know if I've seen one that made me cry. :o Anyone have any good recommendations for animes that will make me cry? xD
7.Which anime character would you wish really exist?
ROY FROM FIRE EMBLEM... OR DONNY, MY OTHER BOY... but they're from video games, so I guess they don't count. :M;;;
I think it'd be cool if Kotetsu from Tiger & Bunny was real... but if he was real, all the other heroes would have to be real, too. >:M
8.Who are you most close to in your family?
My sisters, but I love everyone in my family. ;u;
9.Do you have a job? If yes then, what is it?
Nope. I want to open art commissions next year to help me with college, though! ;o In real life. Idk if it'll interest anyone online, and I don't have a paypal account. >3>;
10.Alone in an island what would you miss most?
Computer. orz I always have my characters in my head, so drawing isn't the biggest issue. It's youuu guyyyys!!!! ;u;
11.Did you like my questions?
I may add in more questions and tag some people later, but this is all for now! :D
Currently working on: NAH-THING. I've been so unproductive...
Hey, I forgot my blog existed... Well, not really. I just feel like nothing interesting goes on in my life, so I haven't had to post lately. xD I wonder if I should post here more often?
Anyways, I recently made a new character! Sort of. He's actually been a character in my mind for a long time, but he never had a face or character so much as a reference to existing. His name's Noland Strong, and you can read a short-ish profile on my charahub. (Also, I have a charahub! I don't think I'll use it often, but now that it has a searchbar I might use it more often. It's a bit difficult to find users, though...)
So. Noland. He's Stefan's ex-boyfriend from college. I don't know if I've ever talked about Stefan's backstory with you, but back in college Stefan had a girlfriend and later a boyfriend--both of which ended up breaking up with him. The point of Noland in Stefan's backstory is that he cheats on Stefan, which influences Stefan into becoming disillusioned with love for the next 8 years. I've always known that Noland exists in the back of my mind, but he never really had a name or a design or anything definite until just a couple days ago. For a while, he was a cool and mysterious foreign guy. (???!??!?! so vague!) Then he was a bi-curious generic sporty boy guy. (Why?) Now he's a kind of bashful intelligent guy with an air about him similar to Dean Johnson, which seems more like the kind of person Stefan would associate with in college. I'll talk more about him in Various Planning some other time when I scan my sketches of him.
What's useful about Noland is that I can use him for a different story I've been thinking about for a while. :V HOORAY. It's about Teacher Noland and a student of his named Chrystal/Chrys, with little to no real storyline like most of the stuff I come up with......... But I'll talk about that too when I post those pictures. The chances of me actually writing or drawing any sort of story about Noland are slim, but you know. At least it exists. 8D
I secretly like to make my real world stories connected to each other. OFAV and RB:SI/A Life LIke This are in the same universe, but in different parts of the world. Foreigner might also be in the same universe, but the fact that Kor is an alien kind of ruins the whole "real world" thing so... probably not. But anyways, an example is that I want Stefan's ex-girlfriend to appear briefly in A Life Like This (it never comes up explicitly that she dated Stefan), and I planned an OFAV-RB:SI crossover when Something Impossible goes to Europe. I think if I made Noland's story, it'd be another one of those stories in that same universe with a specific connection to OFAV. It's completely unrelated to OFAV besides Noland and Stefan's past, so idk if it really counts as a spin-off of OFAV...
But anyways, I'm rambling. I'll talk more about that in a different post.
As far as life goes, prom is next week. GUH. Idk how well I'll fare since I don't really like dancing or loudness, but hopefully I'll have fun with my friends. Aside from that, I'm almost done with the school year! :V Just final exams. AP's seemed pretty okay, except my horrendous AP Physics C test. orz I think I got a 3 on both the mechanics and E&M section. AAaaaagh. ;m; I wanted to get a 4! I've only gotten an A on one of the tests in that class this year, so I don't think I did too well. orz PHYSICS, YOU WERE SO EASY LAST YEAR. WHY WERE YOU SO HARD THIS YEAR.
And um... yeah. Graduating soon. orz I'm kind of sad, because time passes by so quickly. Hopefully college will be a good experience, though. :D;
...That's about it, I guess. Yay!
Happy Memorial Day weekend, folks! :V
