Subject:Oops
Time:10:35 pm.
Mood: discontent.
So I totally forgot I had this thing.

... And yet I don't want to write about drama in here.

...

... So much for an entry.

Subject:Woah
Time:1:17 pm.
Mood: awake.
Just got back from Florida, MA, and Maine.

A french cab driver hit on me on the cab ride home.
... I never get hit-on.

Note to self: Either start jogging or pick up bellydancing again.

Oh, Mom. Why did you have to leave me with dirty dishes/pans/coffee maker 2-weeks-old?! T_T

Subject:A Post About Coffee
Time:3:36 pm.
Mood: amused.
I love coffee.

Close friends state that coffee slows down one's metabolism and that the energy boost isn't worth the following crash. I vaguely recall a blurb on how coffee affects your liver or kidneys or some vital organ, but I apparently wasn't listening.

The fact of the matter is that people consider caffeine a drug or an abusive substance, like marijuana, alcohol, cigarettes, etc. If you don't drink and don't smoke, people expect that you aren't a big caffeine-consumer.

Well, here's some odd news that has questionable credentials:
Coffee may be kinda good for you!

  • Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes!
  • Coffee boosts your mood!
  • Coffee increases mental agility + physical performance!
  • Coffee protects against Parkinson's disease!
  • Coffee defends against liver and colon cancer!

    Subject:More Shallow Ranting
    Time:11:05 am.
    Mood: angry.
    June 6th- I bleach the hell out of my hair after getting a smexy hair cut. (The hair dresser said I had beautiful color as she cut my hair. That was my original dyed color.)
    June 7th- I use blonde dye (dollar store!) and it comes out great. Uneven, but great.
    June 9th- I dye my hair purple and blue. It looks FUCKING AWESOME. I am pleased beyond anything.
    June 12th- The blue faded almost completely.
    June 14th- I contemplate either dying my hair completely magenta or completely brown. Friend says brown.
    June 17th- I buy Revlon High Dimension 61- Light Cool Brown. I dye my hair once more.
    Now- My hair is ash-olive. Not brown. Not blonde. The color of baby poo with a consistency like cotton balls.

    Total spending: $24+$18+$1+$0+$0+$11= $54

    All this only to have my hair look like SHIT. >.< FUCK.

    Subject:Dear Artist
    Time:7:48 am.
    Mood: kinda bitchy.
    I want to make an entry for the artists who get discouraged.

    I want to tell you that you've progressed over time and your skills have become closer to an accurate expression of your skill. Does that mean you've reached your goals? Of course not. It just means that you have gotten better and that you should keep going! I know it gets tough when you're exposed to awesome talent from all ages and backgrounds on a daily frikken basis, but look what you've done and where you've come from! Think about what makes you happy about creating art, what gets you inspired. Think about the "chicken soup" of your work-- the same concepts you return to when you want to remember a time in your life when drawing was fun. Put on some inspirational music, or music you associate with doodling. Draw other characters or revise older pictures. Don't draw to make a masterpiece-- draw to make yourself smile! Don't draw to impress-- draw to express or to entertain. Have fun with it!

    Why am I going into this motivational speech? Because sometimes, we meet a harsh, unwanted, overly negative critique that brings us to the point of wanting to give up. (Sometimes we are our own worst critics. Sometimes it's someone who means a lot to us who doesn't know how much they hurt us with these raw, thoughtless criticisms.) We'll grow thicker skin and we'll be able to take these comments and either work with them or ignore them-- but often times, that comes later. For now.... just try to remember what I said. Find the enjoyment in your art.

    ... And, if it will really make you feel better, just hold a grudge against that person and don't show them any more of your art. They're a bastard anyway. They don't deserve to see your awesomeness. Fuck 'em. XD

    Time:5:19 pm.
    Mood: blah.
    I think I want to bleach my hair all blonde again.

    See, redheads tend to be kinda badass or at least spunky and bold. I don't stand out that much. =\

    Anyway...

    Subject:MSHBTM- Part Two!
    Time:9:29 am.
    Mood: productive.
    1. Comment here and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and draw a picture using the mighty MS Paint.
    2. You have no say in what I draw for you, or in how much it will suck!
    3. Put this in your journal along with the pictures people drew for you.

    Subject:Miss Su Has Bad Time Management
    Time:9:08 am.
    Mood: stupid.
    So I have a notebook with a list of To-Do stuff literally on my lap, yet I just wasted half an hour on blog quizzes! Go me!

    Waste of timeCollapse )

    Subject:Damn you, registration
    Time:3:42 pm.
    Mood: bitchy.
    AI desperately needs an online registration for classes because this 8 am Monday morning line bs is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and overall yucky!! SFSU at least had that awesome organized system of signing up for classes! You'd think with all these intellectuals and programmers and web designers working in the school and graduating from the school, we'd have an online system set up by now!! I know that all the AI's need to be synchronized and whatnot, but you'd think they'd get their act together!

    ... All bitchin' aside, I'm pretty good. Really stressed, mind you, but delightful nonetheless.

    Subject:The Letter 'S'
    Time:4:51 pm.
    Mood: blah.
    This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why.
    mortono assigned me the letter S.

    1. Su- My name.
    2. Scorpio- My sign.
    3. Soliloquy- "It is a dramatic convention that soliloquies and asides cannot be heard or noticed by the other characters, even if they are delivered in their plain view." (Wikipedia.)
    4. Stereophonics- Cool band. 'Sploding cars that rotate in the sky filled with sad clowns. Need I say more?
    5. Serendipity- Often associated with magic and whimsy. Also the title of both a John Cusack film and a cartoon about a pink dinosaur.
    6. Sagacity- A cool way of saying "common sense".
    7. Seventh Guest- I miss that game.
    8. Spice Girls- I may or may not know every song by heart.
    9. Savage Garden- ... I should stop with the music groups right about now.
    10. Sketch- Something I love to do.

    Subject:Calendar
    Time:5:19 pm.
    Mood: stupid.
    Does anyone have a calendar for AI?

    I need to know the concrete, exact dates of summer vacation, including information on what days we need to sign up for classes and other really important dates. Where should I normally look for this information?

    Subject:Insecurities
    Time:10:41 pm.
    Mood: crappy.
    I'm pretty Goddamn insecure right now.

    I'm in quarter two and I've plopped myself into that Survey of the Game Industry class. I know it's only been two weeks in, but as I look around the class, I sink into myself. I realize I'm not a gamer. I've played the old Nintendo and SNES games, but I never got into the whole Final Fantasy thing. I somehow completely avoided Playstation, Dreamcast, etc. and jumped over to N64. After all of four or five N64 games, I latched onto Xbox-- Morrowind, Prince of Persia, Fable, and Def Jam: Fight for NY. Somewhere in there, I just about mastered The Sims and toyed with Sims 2. First-person shooters never really interested me. Actually, not only do I not actively go around buying/borrowing games to play, but I also don't play the ones I own.

    Where does the time go?

    Oh, that's right. Sleep. Writing. Text-based roleplay. Drawing. More sleep. Family/social life. Homework. More sleep.

    Gosh, where was I going with this?

    Oh, right.

    I don't know if I should be in the whole game design thing. I want to design characters. That is my set goal. However, I could do that in just normal animation too, right? So... what's the difference? Why do I want to be in game art instead of animation? Is there a test I could take to see which is better suited for me? I mean, either way, I obviously have to go through the whole training, and that is what's ultimately going to get me ready for the job market...

    Gosh. I dunno. I just know that I feel like I don't belong in my Survey of the Game Industry class and that I can actually hold my head up in Image Manipulation. I may be able to find a solution merely by catching up on one or two popular games or just picking up W.O.W., but, for now, I just want to hide and apologize for seeming like I belong.

    Subject:Digilocket
    Time:8:00 pm.
    Mood: sick.
    Has anyone created the digital locket yet?
    I'm sure it's been done, but gosh... Are they expensive?
    I have a thing for lockets. I love 'em. But it'd be awesome if you could store a whole short slideshow or just a little photo album in there.

    Subject:Get Down With The Sickness
    Time:6:30 pm.
    Mood: nauseated but happy.
    Thursday night was the best start of a vacation ever.
    Friday was a highly productive day of cleaning and ignored minor symptoms of an oncoming cold. By nightfall, however, I had the coughing, congestion, the lump in the throat... Today, it all escalated to a fever, chills, and full-on sickness.

    For someone so happy, I am undeniably ill.

    Happy vacation!

    Subject:Disheveled Chaos
    Time:12:30 am.
    Mood: stressed.
    Stress over last-minute finals. Stress over personal life.
    Stress over wondering how I'm ever going to survive the break without going mad.
    Stress over owning many of The Sims expansion packs, having lost the packaging and serial numbers and thus having no way of reinstalling them.
    Stress over my mp3 player not working.

    No meditation or sleep can straighten me out right now. I'm at the mercy of time.

    Subject:Cheesetastic!
    Time:10:36 pm.
    Mood: silly.
    Is it rebellious mocking silly of me to intentionally toss a cheesy moment into my behavior or into an essay?

    Actual title: "Video Games and You"
    Tempting title: "Video Games and YOU! *Insert clipart of a thumbs-up.*"
    Desired title: "ZOMFGUH LIEK GAMEZ&U XD <3 whee!"

    I made the mistake of sleeping in until noon and then taking a nap from one to 5.
    It may be a while before I get some Z's.

    I... guess I'll study...

    Subject:Uncertain Mutt
    Time:3:57 am.
    Mood: confused.
    Okay. Yeah, yeah. Almost 4 now. I just spent some time tweaking the smexiness of ze journal and all that.

    And then I got tuh thinkin'....

    I've been thinking about my direction in life, career goals and whatnot, and I wonder where I really belong. I'm too lazy/cheap to be a gamer. I'm too lazy/cheap/afraid-of-the-competition for fashion. I don't want to learn more about film-making or the art of cinematography, so animation isn't looking too hot. I know I like to draw characters, design outfits/weaponry, and I love writing fictional shtuffs... So I'm kinda left not knowing exactly what field in which I belong.

    Blah. More of the whole "discover yourself! <3" bs. x_x Insta-doom.

    Too... lazy... to... continue... entry...

    Subject:Beginning of the End
    Time:2:52 am.
    Mood: tired.
    It's nearly 3 AM and I truly hope you aren't looking for an in-depth generalization of my person or its function in life. Instead of describing myself (or attempting to, at least), I intend to vaguely point out my current status to break the ice.

    Here comes week 11 finals. Your Monday will serve as my Sunday. As per usual, I will sleep in only to store the energy to passively try to finish whatever I can before Tuesday comes around. Meanwhile, personal distractions such as adorable over-achieving little emo bois and girlscout cookies will distort my perception of time and priority.

    Ah well.

    Onward!

    Su.
