I am reading about historical linguistics online (instead of doing my homework oops) and it is legitimately bringing tears to my eyes
In this moment, I have absolutely no second thoughts about my planned choice of major. This is way more exciting to me than it probably should be god I can't handle
With history homework it's so easy to go off on these rabbit trails though. So many clues as to how my favourite languages were formed ;~;
it'd be a really relaxing summer class, too bad that's not an option even >:|
it will be faster in the long run but LOL god, what even
idk what comes over me
(adhd that's what)
(also I'm really hoping my harddrive is not failing again... my cursor was lagging earlier and IDK if it was just firefox being an ass with my RAM, or if it was Actual Problems
backing up everything just in case! Slightly tempted to invest in a new PC; this toshiba laptop is a piece o' junq)
Times like these, living in Minnesota is cool (I actually found it on Amazon.de, and realized the shop who was selling it was like 2 miles away loool, so I just went there the next day instead of paying $20 shipping... THEY WEREN'T EVEN SHIPPING FROM EUROPE, golly)!
This book is making me crey like a babby btw :C
Don't tie them up and put them on your boat"

I totally bonded with this girl in there the other day too over Parks and Rec. Lecture was about the Vikings and I was telling her after class that were I a less shy person, I would have quipped "DANMARK ØDELÆGGER ALLE" and she totally got it LOOOOOL
if you do not understand the reference you are not of the chosen ones
Yeah so during the break during Critical Thinking tonight my friend and I just left and went to the opening night of the MCTC Theatre production of Rocky Horror Picture Show (MY OTHER FRIEND WAS IN IT OKAY WE PROMISED HER WE'D GO!!! also in critical thinking we spend way too much time going over what we read in the book and it's like OKAY SHE'S A GOOD PROF OTHERWISE BUT THIS IS COLLEGE I WOULDN'T MIND THE ASSUMPTION THAT WE ACTUALLY DO OUR READING ASSIGNMENTS, when i come to class I want to learn something new :/// )
Anyway at the show they had audience members planted to shout the obscenities lmao THEY REALLY GIVE U DA WHOLE EXPERIENCE
Sans the toast. The program said, and I quote "I... ask you not to throw rice, toast, or other paraphernalia at the actors" ok thanks for telling me i would have never guessed that that was um idk a HORRIBLE IDEA
gotta cover your bases i guess though, after all, not everyone is as classy as I
I forgot to turn in my critical thinking homework in person though... better type that shit up and dropbox it before the e-dropbox closes lol RESPONSIBLE COLLEGE STUDENT! no but i get A's tho <:J
Bringin' dishonour to the honour society
also yeah my fren, who I also take french with, is convinced that "Tu quoque" is secretly french, and is a question.
omg i am so glad I find people I can laugh at stupid shit that makes no sense with
god i never want to leave college, it's da best place in the world
i require all the middle eastern and indian pop music
If you're running Windows 7 64bit it runs a lot smoother, with fewer hangups than regular firefox. and it doesn't pull dumb shenanigans in task manager/have a useless adblock like chrome :>
I LOVE IT.
ok resolutions time!
These were my resolutions for 2011:( Read more...Collapse )
2011 was a good year for art I think, especially since I could just sit down and draw 24/7 most of the year. I think my biggest improvement was in construction, secondly, in colour. I switched from using multiply layers to the overlay technique, or just straight up hand-picking the colours, depending on the technique I was using
The tip to use 3D shapes to construct (obvious as it seems, I wasn't -really- doing it) helped with my solidity and hopefully I can continue that even as I branch away from Disney... it doesn't come naturally at all sob.
For the new year, here's what I want to work on:
Economy of line. when I do quick sketches, they're really scratchy and flat. I want to develop more confidence and a better understanding of structure, so it follows I should:
Be a creep, do more gesture of people IRL. And go to life drawing co-ops at MCAD.
Work with perspective. It intimidates the crap out of me but until I learn it I can't always express the ~pictures in my head~, which brings me to:
Stop being intimidated and do full pieces when the inspiration comes for it. If they really turn out bad, I can re-do them when I develop more skill
Thumbnail more. I hate planning, and when I do thumbnail I do like 3 and call it a day. This should change but oh god it's so boring
Non art related: obvious things like, be healthier, keep doing well in school etc etc MAYBE SAVE FOR ITALY LOL
IDK, happy new year flist!
