Blunt honesty.

Sorry in advance Captain Ronnie if this hurts your feelings, but I really need to get this out....

So you know those people that are so close to you and you can talk to them about almost anything? So since they're so close they give you critisim about your artwork that you may or may not have worked to hard on. Sometimes it's good and helps you, but other times....You know they just tear it apart bit by bit, line by line, molicule by molicule. So then you're sitting there going, 'I've gotten so much better since when I first started drawing and you were there, but just NOW are you giving me all this critisim!? I sucked -instert years here- years ago and you didn't critisize me then!!! This just makes me not want to show you anything! Yeah my style is changing and you liked it better this other way and yes I messed up the thumbs during the inking and I don't care if it's a bad color on them I wanted to do that color!!!!!!!!!!!' Then you have a mental break down and don't draw for three months and you're living in your closet growing mushrooms with faces and your oc's living in your head are in a furious rage. (If you have oc's living in your head like I do)

*sigh* I'm pretty sure a lot of you have a person you know like that. You love them to death, but you just wish they'd treat your art like everyone else's and leave the bluntness out sometimes. But if they need to tell you they should tell you in person if they see it on the internet or something, or say it nicely and not like some snobby higher up person. You know you just want them to bring you up to. But for all those years you were to nice to tell them to stop and the times you did snap you felt bad, but they did stop critisizing during the time you didn't draw hardly anything, but when you did start drawing again they just started up again and you had to go through that whole process all over again. But in the end you love them so much you just keep putting up with it.

*sigh* Sorry about that guys I just needed to get that out. So, now enjoy the song 'Change the World' from Inyuasha.

Job interviews...

You know, I don't ever know how to act at a job interview. I have one today truthfully. In like half an hour. I'm not even ready to go. I'm dressed yeah, but not like I should be for a job interview. My mom told me that I should be outgoing...not like I am when I'm talking to someone that's superior to me. She said act like I am around kids. So basically she told me not to be shy. She also said act very interested in the job, but not desperet. How am I not supposed to act desperet when I am!? GYAH! I dunno what to do anymore. School's starting soon and I really need to get a job. The only problem about getting a job now is that I might not be able to go visit Captain Ronnie! (Sorry Ronnie if I can't!) If I don't get the job right now then I'm okay for my trip, but bad for getting the job. I'm praying for it all to go okay though. I hope you guys are supporting me to! I luv you all! (that actually read these)

Now the video for the day is.... I've gotta feeling by the black eyed peas. I've been obsessed to this song the past few days. No it's not the music video sorry if you're sad because of that.

Now! Off to my job interview!

Oh Canada X3

Well, I just got back from my vacation to Alberta Canada! (not like you guys care, but…) Anyway we originally went up there for my dad’s high school reunion, but he ended up not going. We ended up almost having a family reunion. Only my dad’s youngest sister didn’t come up. So, I can say that this time around was pretty good. A bit better than other times I’ve been up.

I ended up getting nerdy anyway even though I tried not to when I was up there. It all started when me and my family was at Zellers when I noticed that they had some dvds on sale. I started looking through them because they had some Yugioh dvds and I’m a small fan of Yugioh. That’s when I noticed they had Teenage mutant ninja turtles season one part one of the 2003 version. My fan mind exploded! I was ecstatic! That’s when I found TMNT the lost episodes. Those are some of my favorite episode EVER. My nerdiness was almost overwhelming. So I was about to stop looking through them when a familiar blonde head poked into my vision. I couldn’t believe it! It was a Zatch Bell dvd! I had never EVER seen them in a store. I automatically picked it up and dashed to my dad. I shoved all dvds into his arms while he was heading to the cash registers. I then said “I’ll pay you back”. So that’s how I now have over 30 TMNT episode and Zatch bell episode 17-20. Zatch bell is so strange, but I love it anyway…Well, I love One Piece to, so I’m not that surprised.
So in honor to my nerdiness you get opening them songs!

TMNT 2003 opening

Zatch bell English opening

And the first Japanese Zatch bell opening

It’s such a strange show…but I luv it!

Life sucks right now.

So, on Monday I went in and got my tonsils out. It's alright I guess, the pain isn't to horrible or anything. My only problem is, is that I can't eat ANYTHING! If I swallow anything other than water it hurts like crap! I'm guessing it's from the scabs at the back of my throat (which gives a horrible taste in my mouth, but that would be just FINE if I could eat). All the medicine makes me sick also. The liquid loratab tasted that rotten ramen and looks like urine, the anibiotic fills my mouth and I can barely swallow it all. The swish and swallow stuff is the only one that tastes relatively ok, but it leaves my mouth all gritty. XP I hope in about two days most of my pain + my scabs will be gone. The nurses said that at about day 5 the scabs will fall off. It's day 4 right now, so....yeah I'm hoping! ( I want to eat soooooooooo bad without it hurting! T^T

Now on a happier note. When I was at the hospital right after I got the iv put in my mom told me that my dad did order a pen tablet. I dunno when it's going to get here, but one was ordered! I hope it's not to much longer. I'm itching to start using it and putting some art up again! I've got to figure out how to use all the tools and stuff on the programs I have. O_o Hmmm....well that'll happen in time right!? I guess I should stop boring you now and give you a video. That's probably what you all get on to see anyway. My life isn't really that interesting.

So, I'm leaving you with...Some speedpaint vids! I love them, yeah that's kinda weird I know. It just makes me hope that I'll be that good someday.

This one is done with the program Pixia.

and this one is done on paint tool sai.

*sigh* I hope I can be that good someday....

I'm back!

Yes, most of you don't care, but I've been at girls camp for the past while, and now I'm back! WOoT! Let's see if I'll start drawing stuff that I can actually put up now. I draw everyday but only in my journal, so hopefully I'll start drawing actual inspired stuff now. Also, hopefully I'll get a tablet in two months for my birfday. I should probably start practicing my digital art skills right? (Ha, skills that I don't have! XD)

Well...yeah that's all I basically had to say, so now I leave you with my favorite vocaloid song at the moment. I LUVLES Gakupo!!! Right now at the moment he's past Len on my fav list! So here we are Dancing Samurai my Kamui Gakupo
