Get to know me

Re-newing my love of reading.

April 18, 2012

  I went to My friend Grant's Capstone yesterday. There were like 5 Seniors there. Basically for an English degree you have to take two books and compare them in a 15 page paper and then create a visual presentation (powerpoint) about it. I went to support Grant. I know he was nervous about it, and I went there as the great friend I was. Each person Had a really unique view about the books they chose. I felt really bad, because there was a girl who chose to compare the novels of Gormaghast, with Lord of the rings, and I pre-judged her. Of course I didn't say anything outloud, but I still felt bad for even thinking it, you really can't judge a book by its cover. (See what I did there?)
   So, after getting through the first four, we got to Grant's powerpoint, which I knew was going to be amazing because I had stayed up with him one night while he worked on it. Comparing Marat/Sade and V for Vendetta and how we need revolution to get rid of our government masters. However, they had given everyone else so much time, and then cut Grant's presentation to the quick saying there wasn't enough time left. He was already nervous in the first place, and then They were rushing him, plus he was reading to a professor that was constantly checking the time, like his circumstances, were just so unfair !! I went to congratulate him, and he told me to shut up. Usually, I just ignore him, because he's a ticking time bomb, and I'm used to him blowing up at me, sure it makes me sad, but I get over it, but I guess it was just one time too many, because I haven't talked to him since then.
 However, on my way to class there was a table with a sign that read free stuff on it, and there a bunch of old books. So I decided to pick up this one with a plain red cover. It's called The professor of Desire by Phillip Roth.
 I'm looking forward to reading it, as soon as I'm done with all my History makeup hmwk.  Here's what's left and how I plan on tackling it. 

Tonight: I will read Strayer Ch 23 and Reilly pg.981-1002
Thursday: I will read Strayer Ch 20 + 19
Friday: I will read Strayer Ch 18 + Reilly pg. 802-825
Saturday: I will read Reilly pg. 670-709 + Strayer Ch 16
Sunday: I will read Strayer Ch 15 + Reilly pg. 620-635 + pg. 670-689

 And my catch up work will be completed!! I already Did my math hmwk due on Monday, and I'm on my second draft of my persuasive speech, and my phone bill is paid, Once I'm done There will be this humongous weight lifted off my shoulders! Just imagine the free time. LOL.

Doodles #1

April 17, 2012

 Usually I actually take notes during class, but as my birthday comes closer (3 months away) my excitement grows for my birthday present to myself. I’m by no means an artist but I have always liked to draw. Sometimes they come out really good and sometimes I look down at what comes out of my pen with a furrowed brow and wtf on my lips. 
 As it nears, I am beginning to re-think the design of my wings, whether I want color or not, how big or small and even the location!! The final design of my wings eludes me and lures me down many different roads as you can see from my doodles…

Damn Technology.

April 11, 2012

This isn't really a blog entry. More of a rant!!! I went downstairs to a classroom in my school to plug up my laptop to the projector to watch a movie. Because my homework done and I deserved it. Only to get down there with the old laptop and have absolutely no picture, no display. So I switched to the new laptop and instanly got a display. Hoever, I needed the internet to watch the movie and couldn't do it. So the old laptop had internet no picture. The new laptop had picture no internet. Gah! I just couldn't win!! It pissed me off so so bad.

New Boxies!!!

April 10, 2012

 I was working the third shift all Easter weekend which wasn't bad, I made ok tips, but it was slow, so during the down time, I made another pair of boxies. I was going to turn these into the secret project I was telling you about but didn't have the right yarn so I decided to just make them into bumblebees with no bows. So here are some pictures of the finished product and before work in progress Wednesdays too!! As you can see by the formatting It makes a lot more sense right? Well... That's because my dad found a laptop for me to use while I'm getting mine fixed, but If I have to tell the truth, I'm already falling in love with it!!
  So there they are!! Cute adorable and super useful. I love having my fingers free! They've been added to the shop as well as my other two designs. I am currently re-working things here so don't be surprised if things look a little different every time you come visit. Be sure to look out for the re-designs soon!!! The completed design and revamp of the shop and blog, I am hoping to have completed by the middle to the end of summer.
  Even though, this Summer I plan on getting my driver's license AND My STNA license. I am very excited about this turn of events! I feel like I will finally be on the right track, especially after the semester is over and I can relax a little. 

Mistress Out,

an important example of why I need a new laptop asap, written by my useless at creating good blog entries with pictures tablet.

 If you guys haven't introverted, this chick has been busy. This is my easter break, granted I go back tomorrow but It has been a blast, no homework nothing school related for 4 whole days! It was glorious. I completed seasons 1 and two of vampire diaries, and am only 16 episodes away from being caught up. Got my creative juices flowing and created some new items for the shop. (gasp and surprise all around) Yes, I said the shop. For those who thought she was dead, and's not dead just simply resting.
  Although speaking of dead, where has Sandy run off too? Went to see if she updated her page and suddenly it doesn't exist? When to read up on For and her blog is suddenly invited readers only? What is going on ladies?? Why am I so out of the loop?? I started creating a line of fingerless mittens called Boxies,. I can't wait to start showing you guys the character ones I created. They are so adorable. In the meanwhile though, I have updated the shop with the regular boxies, and the bow bodies. Here are  some photos!

I need a laptop short and smart. Here is my handle ihere is my clout.

April 7, 2012

 So, there are several reasons why I haven't been updating as often as before. One, My laptop,. which is what I blog from usually, But as you can tell from a few posts ago that my lapops keyboard is ruined, totally janky. You would be so surprised how many words actually use the keys A,C,Delete and backspace. Two, My homework load on top of work on top of trying to keep up with family drama is totally draining me.
  So to help me with fixing these dilemnas. I decided a laptop that would actually work would be key. Originally I just needed to change the keyboard. But now, I have a bi-Partisan harddrive with two operating systems. Windows and Linux. Windows stopped working and so I installed LInux Mint 10 and then fell in love and that was all I used while My windows gathered dust.  Now, I guess Windows is jealous because my linux section wont even load, which SUCKS! I don't want to use Windows anymore, so now I may need to either just lear/reboot everything and then install the new keyboard... Or I could just be totally selfish and buy myself a new laptop for my birthday which is in 3 months and 15 days.
 I thought I would show you guys a list of laptops that I'm interested in and then maybe you can help me make the decision.... So the laptop I have now is an Acer, its a netbook, with a webcame and a 10 inch screen. I want something similar. So here are some of my picks.
ASUS Eee PC X101CH - Atom 1.6 GHz - 1 GB Ram
Asus Eee PC White $183

Sony VAIO YB Series VPC-YB35KX/P - E-450 1.65 GHz - 4 GB Ram
Sony Vaio Y PC $420

HP Mini 210-4150NR 10.1-Inch Netbook (Charcoal Gray)
Hp Mini $298

 These are the one's I'm looking into maybe I'll get it duringthe summer when I have more time.

Mistress Out,

When you meet a Wolf-man and all you have is a tablet.

April 4, 2012

So, as a master blogger I fail miserably. I tried to make a schedule that would fit school, work and blogging together in this perfect harmony but it literally seems like there is no way I can do that, everything seems to fall apart.  I haven't been blogging because it is way too much of a hassle right now. My actual laptop keyboard is dead beyond repair. It's missing two ridiculously important keys right now which makes it a hassle to type. I'm working off my table now, but it makes a hassle to upload photos even if the pictures are on the HARD DRIVE, It's seriously pushing my buttons.
 I was totally show off these incredibly nerdy model kits I found at a hobby shop while we were waiting to get the car fixed. AAA will definitely be getting a howler on Monday! I am not sure if I have shared this or not but I adore old scary movies. When I say old, I mean old. Vincent Price, The mummy, the wolf man, creature from the black lagoon, the original Dracula. That kind of jazz. So when I was walking Down the aisle and discovered these goodies I was totally ready to upload these pictures and make a whole blog entry2 out if it, but apparently my tablet had other plans.
 I found model kits of the following: Star geek's enterprise ( I nearly hyperventilated, I-m almost certain people outside the store could hear me!!  They also had mobile gundams. Big and small. Bandanas'. Vampire van and barnabas and the wolf man from Dark Shadows, which is one of my favorite "adult" shows ever!! I can remember watching it when I was little watching it with my uncle tori as we eat our super buttery and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches.

Mistress Out,
