Visit (by Rachel Ries)

Pandora Radio is one of the best things ever happened to man. Especially all the deep, expressive music I listen to when I type in 'Muse.' Almost everything on there I like. Regina Spektor is lovely too.

If you haven't already, please see Paper Dreams. I'll be sure to put up photos this week, as well as convince my mother to set up a PayPal. I'm also considering offering commissions too, but I have yet to stabilize my inconsistent style. Still, whatever helps to get that $200 by May. And if not $200, then $100.

I thank my very special friend that has donated a stack of beautiful pastel paper to use and also sponsored me ten cranes. And for my other wonderful friends that have sponsored 3 cranes. This I thank from the bottom of my heart deeply.

Origami paper

Yesterday I slept in just a bit too late, so I quickly dressed and shot out the door.

It was only in the middle of my Pre-Cal Test that I realized that my shirt was on backwards. No wonder the collar had seemed so high.

Anyways, I’m actually thinking about opening commissions to the public. I have yet to fully convince my mother to get a PayPal… I need money for a mission trip this summer with my church youth group.

To fundraise I’m thinking of folding 1000 paper cranes. The idea is that someone sponsors me $0.25 per paper crane and they get to sign the origami paper. Maybe they should put a wish in there too, so it’s not just a signature. Though I may have to raise it to $0.50 for good quality origami paper, which is pretty expensive.

Just a bit of digital art, done with my brother’s tablet. Without his permission. But when the cat is away, the mice will play. I really do want a tablet of my own.

Yesterday I was just browsing online and I found a “How to do your own emo haircut” video. Might just try that some day soon.

Some recent artwork + sushi

I assume you all know where my deviantart is…

So I will spare the linking for this one blog post.

Went to go eat sushi yesterday for my birthday. It was absolutely delicious, but for the wasabi under each slice of raw fish. And then the staff gave me a bowl of green tea ice cream with a candle stuck on top and they sang “Happy Birthday” (in English). Kind of embarrassing, but luckily there weren’t that many people in the restaurant.

And my lovely mother and sister gave me a bookmark (sister), a collage (sister), a watercolor painting (mother + sister), 3 flesh-toned copics, and a journal with handmade paper. Over all, not bad!

I'm Alive

Well, barely alive.

Schoolwork is overwhelming. As well as violin and piano.

The internet is my escape. That is, before I pass out from exhaustion. I hardly even have time to draw anymore - and I probably won't until (in the very best situation) mid-March.

Everyone else hanging in there?

Some doodles and things on deviantArt. Each picture is linked.

-- Personality Disorders --

Took this test since I saw it on [personal profile] xxxrushi's blog on dreamwidth. But his is hidden, though, so you can't see the results.

Schizotypal, antisocial, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive.

This is not depressing at all.

If anyone takes this, I'd love to see your results. Unless of course, if it's too depressing. *sigh*

Two things that make me excited as of today

1. First, Bleach episode 308 just rocked my world. Rangiku’s crying was about to make me cry too until Epic Ichigo came along and ruined the moment. And have you noticed? Aizen seems to get more and more feminine as he evolves. As someone I know says, Aizen’s become so powerful that his eyebrows merged together into a jewel on his head.
See? Except this picture isn’t as feminine or purple as it is in the anime, XD.

2. My order came in today! Realies by Lee Si Young. A great Korean manhwa containing 3 stories: “How Martians conquered the Earth,” “Is it really impossible?” and “Science Fiction Story.” I think I’ve mentioned it once in my previous posts. I really wish the author would’ve made a second volume. Maybe if I contact the author he/she will. I think it’s a he though…
There’s a chance that there’s no school tomorrow! Even if I do have to go, I won’t be so sad because I’ve got my Realies…. Mwehehe!

Superbowl Sunday

I never really was into football.

And now that everyone is making such a big deal about it this year, with all the snow and all...

I still don't care.
Well, maybe I'll watch the commercials, but I don't care.

You know what's really sad?

I work really hard on my artwork. I really do. And I'm pretty satisfied with the feedback I get.

But I only create one tutorial on how to color, and that gets a 125 faves, as of now. And the picture that I did it over only gets 9.

Really, deviantArt? I give you my all, my hard work, and you return saying that deviantArtists are selfish, caring only about themselves. They only want to know how to get better, to earn that fame.

I know this rant is probably selfishness on my part, but really it shows you how depressing it is. Undoubtedly one of the most depressing things that I've ever experienced.

Let me go cry in my corner...
