I got in a car wreck this morning.... I'm okay, just some bruises, but my poor car is all smashed in the front.  Not a good day.

Why, LJ?

Jan. 22nd, 2008 | 07:14 pm

 These harajuku doll things promoting HP and Gwen Stefani are really annoying!   Mostly because  Gwen is really annoying.  I know that other subcultures go mainstream every now and then, and the people originally into them don't like it, but really, now, when did J-fashion become cool?  Or rather, when did the idea of it become cool, because Harajuku Gwen is not really harajuku fashion.  Even her smelly perfume is insulting, using the same font that "L" from Death Note uses (yep, her scent is called L, too).  It's awfully hard to ignore mainstream culture with harajuku advertisements dancing around LJ.

Mmm, stuff

I'm back in school... my art class got cancelled, so I got into another one, then it was cancelled, too, so no art class for me.  I am taking govt II, comp and rhet II, us history II, and interpersonal communication (this one is mostly on-line).  

Other than school, I've been making stuff- new doll clothes, mostly, and a mini clay baby I plan to sell on ebay.  And just this morning, I managed some decent onigiri (rice balls).  

Kaesu's new eyes came today; they're green hazel, glastic- all pretty and shiny.  I haven't put them in yet.

I'm feeling about zero motivation to write, so I'll just end this now, before I start using texting language.

I'm last minute-ing everyone's presents again this year; all hand made stuff.  Somehow I can't remember from one year to another how stressful it is to still have plushies to sew on Christmas Eve morning.  But all is well, because we have a tree, and it's GREEN!!!!  Mom took the scary shiny one to work, so we have a nice, pretty, real one.

When did my life get so busy?  I used to have all kinds of free time, but lately stuff has just been piling up.  I've got a few projects due in classes, finals next week, a funeral tomorrow, and a couple social engagements after all that (but before Christmas).  And I've still got to clean my room sometime soon, so I can put up my 2 ft fake tree.  It has to go up because the family tree this year is going to be one of those tacky aluminum monstrosities, complete with color wheel.  I don't want a shiny tree of doom!!!

Then I've also got to get 100 paper cranes folded by next semester for art club, and I've barely started on Christmas presents, and I really need to make some winter loli clothes (so I can look cute without freezing), and also some winter clothes for Kaesu (msd size bjd) so he doesn't look like he's freezing.  Can't I just curl up somewhere warm and sleep 'till May?

The end of summer...

...needs to hurry up and get here already.  The a/c is out yet again and it's effin' hot.  I started school last week at the prestigious Kingwood College campus :) , where I have no friends and a few acquaintances from church and high school.  I miss TAMUG anime club and living away from home.  Art and psychology seem like they'll be interesting classes, while government, micro computer app, and possibly english will test my will to live (at least academically speaking).  On the up side of life, I finally ordered a bjd (ball jointed doll, for those unaware).  It's a white, 43 cm, elf eared boy from the Bobobie company in China.  At $174 (for doll, eyes, face up, boots, and shipping), he's quite affordable for a doll of this kind.  I've already made him an outfit and wig, though I've sort of been neglecting my own clothes.  I do plan to at least have a skirt and a few accessories whipped up before Tuesday, though.  It's too hot to move, but I suppose I should get a little laundry done today, and a cool shower is definitely in order.

1st entry

Well, I think it's about time I made an entry here, so here it is. It seems like I always start journals with a negative topic, so in keeping with tradition I have a nice rant about the tragedy of being a misunderstood artist. I suppose it really isn't quite that dramatic, but my mom sort of commissioned me to draw a picture of her with Jesus. By "sort of" I mean all I get out of it is the right to use her photoshop software. Anyway, she's wanting me to draw all these preliminary pictures of her face and different hairstyles, and then fix any flaws she finds with them. This is completely frustrating as it is so different from the way I usually work. Typically I might make a stick figure sketch to see if a certain pose will work, but then I go right to drawing the finished piece. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I see no need for even drawing basic shapes first. All this pre-drawing is making me crazy. I don't find the subject very interesting (I mostly draw anime, and recently started drawing J-rockers) so I would really like to just hurry and get it over with. There are such nicer things I want to do. I already have plans to make Malice Mizer chibis at a tea party, and another picture with Gackt-era MM and butterflies :D.
