Best b-day present EVER!!!

If you do not know yet from my earier art post I got a tablet for my b-day! I'm so happy and excited! I have no idea what I'm going draw. I have no good ideas for pictures. I've lately been using older pics and redoing them. I hope one day I'll be good enough that I can do some speed paints. I love watching speed paints. I want to be able to join those people in the world of showing what I can do. *sigh* One day...once I know how to work/color well. Until then, enjoy this song!

Brand new world by V6

Stupid loading bar!

You know those times when you fall behind in an anime or tv series and you're trying to catch up, but the episode just won't load fast enough? Well, that is my story at this exact moment! I'm four episodes behind in Fairy tail and my computer won't load the episode fast enough! Probably doesn't help that I'm also downloading an episode of another anime.... So I was sitting there banging my head against my desk thinking 'What am I going to do now that I actually have to WAIT?' And that's when it hit me. 'Post something on theO and melt everyone's brains that actually read these things!' And so that is what I am doing.....yeah....actually that's really all I wanted to do....just say that I'm not used to waiting for videos to load and that's what I'm having to do right now....so....yeah....

Enjoy this opening song that I can't wait for the full version to come out! WOoT! Go Fairy Tail!

The video is mirrored because the opening is copyrighted.....but it's the song I really care about.

A small Manti vacation

You know....Manti isn't really the best place to go on vacation. I'm here at this exact moment visiting Captain Ronnie and in the end I've resorted on getting on her laptop and typing up this post because I can't really sumbit art without a camera or a scanner both of which I don't have in my possesion... Also...I can't sleep very well because her grandma doesn't have any air conditioning, but all in all it's very enjoyable. So far...I've...drawn and visited...Yeah as you can tell....not much to do in Manti. Ronnie could tell you that herself. Go and ask her if you feel like it. So....since I can't really say more I'll leave you with this music video!

If I had you by Adam Lambert. Good song, I love it!

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!
