Thank you!

Thank you for the birthday wishes!
Today I went to the Saint James Art Fair. They have it every year on around my birthday. Last year I couldn't go because it was raining. This year the weather was nice though it did rain a little. We got there a little late so I didn't have time to check out most of the booths.
I did get some things. I got two necklaces, a jewelry box and a framed of a itched fossil carving. It looks like ivory but its not. Its a fossil of mammoth. There was one booth in particular that I wanted to buy from but I couldn't find it. I see him every time I visit the fair. He makes these blow glass jewelry they're really pretty.
Well maybe next year. And there's the Harvest Homecoming Fair. They have some nice stuff though its mostly local handcrafts and its smaller than Saint James Fair.
With my birthday money I got a new Wacom Tablet. The one I have still works but its worn down. The surface is mostly scratch up and its not smooth anymore. So I thought it would be a good idea to get a new one. The drawing here was something I made when I was testing out the tablet.
I got a Venice masquerade mask from my brother and his girlfriend. It looks like a plague doctors mask but its gold and not that creepy looking. But my brother's girlfriend Sara said it freaked the cat out when she tried it on XD
A few days ago I bought a velvet hooded cloak from a new age shop so I want to make a costume using the mask and cloak

So hope you all have a good day and good night!

Rule two: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write eleven new ones.
Rule three: Tag as many people as possible and let them know you tagged them!!

1. If you could live in an anime universe, which would you choose? (Not your favorite anime necessarily)
Somewhere safe where I won't likely be killed by monsters or demons...Oh hell I'd live in the Pokemon world. So I can have real live Pokemon who wouldn't?

2. Should a fictional character you hate show up at your door one day, who would it be and how would you react?
Okay I don't have any character I hate right now except for the ones that practically everyone hates but there is this one character at the moment. I'm in a middle of watching Revolutionary Girl Utena on Hulu. I haven't finished watching it but right now there are two characters I hate Saionji and Touga. If either of them showed up at my door I get a stock stuffed with soup cans and throw it at their heads

3. Say you have to live for a month with a fictional character of your choosing. Who is it, and how would you imagine life with them?
I want to hang out with Cecil Palmer from Welcome to Night Vale. I think it would be fun and interesting to hang out with him. And I would listen to him gush over Carlos X3

4. If you can remember, what was the first "ship" you had from a fictional series (book, tv show, whatever)? (For example, mine was either Jimmy Neutron x Cindy Vortex or Kim Possible x Ron Stoppable)
I think my first ship was Grimmjow and Orihime. Technically a crack pairing but I got really into it for awhile after seeing fanart of them together. And then OrihimeXUlquiorra. For a while I was really into crack pairings from my favorite shows but right now I don't really ship anyone except there are some canon ships I like

5. What is your favorite fictional series (as stated previously, can be anything)?
Welcome to Night Vale. God I love it. I have a T shirt. I want to draw fanart and I want to talk to other fans and discuss headcanons and stuff. AAAAhhhh

6. What was your proudest moment in life?
Umm I would say getting a job or more like earning money where I can buy stuff for myself. I can't really support myself right now...

7. If you could design your class schedule to appeal to your interests, what would your classes be?
Art classes mainly and maybe literature that only talks about the genres I like
And mythology! A mythology class that doesn't mainly discuss Greek and Roman mythology. I took one in high school and they only offer like lessons for one semester and it was mostly Greek and Roman myths and I wished we learned about other myths like Celtic or Egyptian

8. How have you decorated your room? What's on the walls, the floors, your bed? What do these things say about you?
A full framed copy of Midsummer Eve by Edward Robert Hughes . Wall decorations of fairies by Amy Brown. Some art decorations I got from art fairs and a canvas print of the White Fairy by Trudi Finch. I guess this says I love art and fairies :D

9. What is something you often say, like your catchphrase? (Example: Mine is probably "Unnecessary" or "Evidently" or "I am trash" xD)
I say dammit under my breath when I'm frustrated XD

10. What is one label you would apply to yourself?

Dancing Groot

So last week I saw Guardians of the Galaxy and its awesome!

My favorite part is dancing baby Groot!

Well I hope this doesn't spoil the movie to anyone who hasn't seen the movie yet. But then I already seen the gifs of this part before I saw the movie. And I still enjoyed the movie anyway.
Usually spoilers ruins it for me. Well it not really ruins it but I feel like I would like the story better if I wasn't spoiled about certain parts of the story thats suppose to leave an impact. EX: When Hans turned out to be a bad guy in the movie Frozen

So today I bought a new tv for mom well its for all of us since set in the living room and she gave me the old one. Now I'm almost broke @[email protected];
The new one is a smart tv and its really nice. The one in my room (my new tv) is not. I'll probably save up for a smart tv for myself since they appear to have better picture quality.

Oh and has anyone seen the new curve TV? They're amazing! If your in a corner of the room and look at it it feels like your viewing it from the center. And they're like 9000 dollars. They're great but I'm not gonna save up for it that would take me years...

There's another movie I watched recently its called Belle. Its wonderful.

Now there are things I need to check off my list. Read people's posts, work on my comic, go through the recordings thats been piling up in my DVR. I have 10 episodes of Perception, 3 Rizzoli & Isles, and 8 Defiance. Gosh the more I put off watching my shows the more it piles up. Looks like I'll be marathoning for about two weeks XD

Had a little scare (haha)

Had a little scare today at the bookstore.
I was in Barnes and Noble browsing the teen section and I saw tap on the floor making a shape of a body. You know like you see in movies in crime scenes.
Nothing else seem weird and everyone was acting normal and no police officers in sight and then I saw another body tape marked on the floor and that freaked me out!
And then I saw a life sized cardboard of James Patterson.
So it was an advertizement thing hahaha
I should have known better. I have watched several crime drama tv shows so I have some understanding of how it works. There would have been cops and people wouldn't be calm and mingling about.
Never read his books though


I don't seem to drop by on theO much. I really went into the 31 day art challenge and tried to submit them on time.
Next time I go into another month long art challenge I'll prepare rough sketches in advance before the beginning of the month or take my time and submit a couple of illustrations a day. Before I tried to draw a couple of completed pieces in advance and then submit them but it felt like I was getting behind and it made me frustrated. There were some pieces I was trying to finish last minute and they end up not the way I planned
My right arm's not hurting now but gonna take it easy from drawing or sitting at the computer for too long.
I also want to work on PGR post. I know what to do. I might have it up in a few days or before the end of the week hopefully.
And since I've been working on the projects for a whole month my DVR box is almost full. There are episodes of shows that I recorded Sci Fy Defiance, Perception, Rizzoli and Isles (I've been holding on that one for a long time because I was upset when Lee Thompson Young died)

Oh and I did something very stupid a few days ago. I misplaced my cable remote and I found it in the washing machine. It was tangled in the bed sheets. I did not look properly
Very stupid of me
Its sort of works now some of the buttons aren't working like the Exit button
