Life is good.

... but next year...
probably not.
I've signed up for some hard classes and am opting out of a trimester of band *sniffle*.
But i'll be in Drawing and Painting 1 instead.
Which totally is going to be my favoritest class ever, I can tell.

Ah, CalArts, why are you so elusive?
My life drawing sucks right now.
Nobody gives a crap if you can draw manga well in your college portfolio.
I'd better pick up the slack if I ever want to get to Valencia.
I hope they allow mini fridges in the dorm rooms.
As you all know, i'm a milkaholic.
A glass at breakfast, 2 cartons at lunch, a glass after school, 3 or 4 glasses at dinner, a glass or 2 before bed...


that's my rant of the day. Your thoughts?

Time Machine: Sagwa, Big Comfy Couch, and Land before Time

If you haven't seen Sagwa, I feel bad for you.

The offical tagline is "Sagwa: the Chinese Siamese Cat."
'Splain it to me, Lucy.

Long story short, Sagwa (the Chinese Siamese cat) and her family are the official writers for the emperor. Who is fat. And apparently can't write.
You know what? Let's just move on.
Next up is Big Comfy Couch!

this was my absolute favorite show when I was a kid. I even had a Molly doll (which I just dug out of the basement, for old times' sake.)

It always perturbed me that I couldn't do the clock rug stretch.

And, finally...

ta da! The Land Before Time!
I abused this video when I was little. Cera (the yellow one) was my imaginary friend.

This was my favorite song:
Peaceful Valley (from Land Before Time 2)
Well, it's still a good song.

Did I jog any memories?

I didn't think we got that much snow when I woke up this morning,
but it's been snowing all day and hasn't let up.
My sister and I have been playing on her old Webkinz account all morning.

Me: SparklePrincess won't play air hockey with you!
My Sister: Loser!
My Sister: Friend her. Then she'll play with me! MWAHAHA!


so. How's your snow day going?

tweet! tweet!

I was going to write a post about Twitter, but I forgot what I was going to say.
Hang on just a sec...
aha! found it!

The news talks about Twitter like it's the root of all evil/teenage angst/global warming.
Here's a newsflash, guys:
the only people who use twitter are adults!
How may high schoolers do you know with a Twitter?
I'll wait while you count.
Zero, huh?
No way!
Me too!
What an interesting little kawinky-dink we have here!

Still not convinced?
Let's look at who gets in trouble using Twitter.

- politicians
- celebrities
- bank robbers who tweet about robbing a bank
- jurors with a gag order tweeting about the trial

noticing a theme here?
all seemingly responsible adults.
*shakes head*
I can only hope i'm more sensitive to the fact that ANYONE CAN READ YOUR POSTS ONLINE.
Speaking of which...

hello, random stranger who has stumbled upon my blog!
perhaps you were searching for a) something exciting to read, or you thought b) this was a good source for your 5 page report due Monday, or you're c) just a creeper from my school who is hoping that you can smell me through the monitor.

( if you're c, please, GO AWAY!)
(right now I smell like green tea, for all my creeper friends out there.)
( on second thought, I probably shouldn't be encouraging these disturbing habits. forget I said that.)

don't be a stranger! Leave a comment!

EDIT: and thus, I have been proven wrong. Thanks to Greased Lightnin'.

- no clue. If you know, post!

On Location: @ the library

* inhales deeply *

I love the library.
It smells like books.
you know what one of my favorite smells in the world is?
the smell of gasoline.
( i'm not crazy! i promise! )
it might just be because I love flying,
and when I fly charter,
we always have to wait outside while they refuel.
I guess gasoline smells like adventure.


all the gasoline has obviously gone to my head.

my other favorite smell is the smell of vanilla and brown sugar.
Luckily, they sell it by the gallon at Bath and Body Works.
I'll admit it: i'm a Bath and Body Worksaholic.
they just have too many good sales!
it doesn't help that I got nearly $50 dollars in giftcards to go there for Christmas, either.

I also like the smell of cucumber in the summer.
it feels weird smelling like a cucumber in the winter.
quite frankly, it's weird to smell like a cucumber any time of the year.
Whose idea was it to make body lotion smell like food, anyway?
Now, cookies and stuff, I can understand... but cucumbers? and bananas?

I think I would go crazy if I smelled like a banana.

Curse you, newfangled technology!

the color changer on Blogger isn't working.
In other words, i'm stuck with this pukey green background for now.

EDIT: it works now.


I saw Percy Jackson the other day.
It was pretty good.
Most elements were faithful to the book, EDIT: Lies! I had not read the book in years, so my memory was a bit bejumbled. The movie was WRONG! ALL WRONG! SO HORRIBLY, MIND NUMBINGLY, HILARIOUSLY WRONG! except everyone was older. And they all drove (not well, but that's beside the point). And instead of being merely sucked in by the video games at the Lotus Casino, they got drugged.

Which was pretty funny, actually.

Yeah. I'm a cheater.

I have a little secret to share.
Okay, not really.
Sort of.
I stole the post style from my friend's blog.
Because it's cool.
((think of it as payback for ripping off my notebook cover in 4th grade.))
You can find hers here... over here!

Anyways, about me...

i'm a girl.
i wear glasses.
i have brown hair that is rather shaggy at the moment. ( i need a haircut.)
i am short.
i am not capitalizing the i's because they look cooler lower case.
i'm hoping to go to CalArts and get a BFA in Character Animation, but we'll see...

here's my DeviantArt. here
not much to see at the moment...

i'm planning on posting here (almost) every day.
Some days (like today) i'll have a bajillion posts.
some days might be long rants.
others, just pictures.

care to join me on my adventure?


don't be a stranger!
