Are you a deviant?

Hello there.
Just inserting another plug here for my DeviantArt page...

Drawings ahoy!

it's a bit bland and lifeless at the moment, but i'm working on some Haunted Mansion paintings that should liven things up a bit.

(get it? Liven? Dead? HAHAHAHAHA)

So! Anyway! Friend me, follow me, leave me a comment!

Much love,

Something's broken, and something's blue.

the sky is blue.
I've been having an interesting third trimester.
I have classes with friends- which is good-
but I also have to juggle friends and different groups.
So, i'd just like to say i'm sorry.
(you know who you are.)
I just have trouble with telling people "no" sometimes...
actually, all of the time.
but that's no excuse.
So. Yeah.

Most (well, probably all) of you know by now that my finger has been broken for a week.
It's a gigantic pain, but at least all I have is a splint and not a cast.
So I can still sort of play percussion in class with that hand.
One of these days, when I have time to burn, i'll write down everything I have to share about percussion and drumline.
That day, however, is not today...

Keep moving forward!

"Why would you jump out of a perfectly functioning plane? You would be risking your life by hoping that your parachute - which may or may not work - deploys when you pull the string. A much safer option would be staying on the plane, which you know is functioning properly because you are not plummeting to your doom."

- my History student teacher, on the subject of skydiving

Hanging in there...

i'm having a crap type of day.
You don't want to hear about that, though, do you?
Let's talk about happy things instead, like ponies.

well, not that pony specifically.
speaking of toy ponies... i'm excited for Toy Story 3.

(okay, that was a lousy transition, but I had to think of something!)

Jessie has always been one of my favorite Disney/Pixar characters.
I just rewatched Toy Story 2, and she has the hyperness equivalent of feeding a squirrel a Pop Tart.

If there's a midnight showing, i'm THERE!

By the way, in case you were wondering, my favorite Disney/Pixar characters are (in no particular order):

Figment (from Journey into Imagination)
Kevin (from UP)
Lilo & Stitch
Jack Sparrow
Kida (from Atlantis)
Prince Naveen (from Princess and the Frog)


- me, realizing that finals are in 5 days

Today is a good day, luvs.

I am happy.
Wind Ensemble auditions are over.
I got a 101% on my Bio test for the second time in a row.
It was 54 degrees and sunny.
Actually, it's somewhat ironic how much I obsess over grades,
seeing as how all i really want to do
is be a storyboard artist at an animation studio.
More specifically,
i'd like to steal Bob Petersen's job.

(You have been warned, Bob Petersen. Beware.
I am coming for you.)

CalArts is like the Holy Grail of animation schools.
A degree in Character Animation from there is like
having a ginormous shiny gold star sticker and a $500 dollar bill on your resume.
But it's so far away...
(only 24 hours driving time, though, kiddies! No worries! I'll come back to visit!)
that is, if I get in.
Out of a pool of 2,000 applicants, they take 200.

Sometimes less.


Well, isn't that just a great way to put a damper on the day?
At least I have art next trimester.

Shameless Plug Day!

Yes, all you creepy stalker kids out there, it's time for the return of SHAMELESS PLUG DAY! Where everything I love gets... well, you know. Shamelessly plugged.

That sounded really weird.
Or, I suppose, looks really weird typed out.
It was better in my head.
