I am done.

I'm officially on break now.

Granted my last class was yesterday, but I just sent off my design project that I believe I had until tonight to finish up and e-mail in to my teacher.

I just uploaded it to Google Docs to share since I spent so much time on it and think I did rather well. I still have a bit to learn, and I realized that I can't really make anything 'solid' until I get the paid for version of SketchUp. Yep, I'm living the Google life right now. :)

Well here is the link.  Lake House

Let me know how it works or doesn't work for you and I'll try and fix it.

It's going up on Facebook next. :D

So, world. How have you been since I've been gone? :)

I tried my hand at a fractal last night to just start getting back into the grove of things, and the bloody thing took 6 hours to render. That is what I get for using someone else's parms.

Well I was going to post that tonight. But I can put it off until tomorrow. Don't know about that yet.

As you can see, it's well after sunset on Friday night and I'm still on line. It's the home work excuse. I'm sure she is just about to realize that I'm done and is going to tell me to get off. My luck she woke up a few mins ago.

Well I have fractals to make. Photos to take. A story to start writing, and a friend to visit on my B-day. Yep. I'm aging again. It's on the 12th of Jan. I'm heading out to Long Island to see him.

I made a great new friend at school this semester too. I was aiming for boyfriend, but his wife had something to say about that. So we are just friends. I'm going to try and keep in touch with this one. He's a nice guy and we have fun together.

Ok. Off to share link with Facebook before I push my luck here.

Take care. Happy New Year and all those other holidays you celebrate. :D

Goodread Account

I’ve gone and joined another site. Like I need to. Well I just might. I need feed back and I think I might get it here. Get a few ideas for short stories until I start my newest ‘novel’ or to help me get through a writer’s block once I have started.

Well here is the link to my profile. I will still post the links here to any stories that I post there so you can find it. But there will be things that I will only write there, like how all my photo work and fractals live over at Deviantart.

Now how I got here is interesting. I found a free M/M story in iBooks, downloaded it, read, and started talking with the writer. He then pointed me here, as well as another site for really publishing my work, but I didn’t feel ready for that one yet. So I’ll live at Goodreads for a bit, get my writing more under control and join some writer’s groups and do what I can while I’m off from school, for two or so months. I’m also going to see about redrawing a few things in autocad for practice. But I’m off topic.

School will be out in 3 weeks and at that time, my on like active will spike. Over at DA (Deviantart), and Goodreads. So this could be good. I feel like writing something new.  :)

If you have an account over there, do look me up and talk to me for the love of everything green on this floating space rock.

BTW, I will be posting a permanent link on my page/blog.

Some Shots

Here are some shots of my ... finished model. :)

I would have liked to have the 3D version for you to look at, but once I added the water, the trees on the side and the green roof top, it was too big. There is this 10meg limit and I'm well over it with all the extra greenary.

So I took some shots.

The presentaion went well. It was on Wednesday btw. I just have to make my floor plans bigger and to draw my sections. I need at least one section to keep my grade out of the B zone. He liked what I came up with. I just made one mistake. I printed out the type of stone that I wanted to use on the outside of the building, but he didn't like that. I should have showen these pics on the computer instead to show the white stone against the blue glass even is I said it was meant to be clear. I can still change that part on my drawn elevations. Make it a nice blue tint. :D

I added in the water fountains near the end when I was reading over what was needed in my project. I have two since I have such a large space between the two areas out front. At first I thought that it was bad thing that I had that big of a space, but now I see that they could have tables and chairs out there for some kind of out door event. :) I'll write that in some where. :D

I am very disapointed with myself for not remembering how to use auto cad. I just need to stop using something and it gets pushed aside, if not out of my head, in favor of new knowlage. :(

Why do I bring up auto cad? I was thinking of saving some time by doing my floor plans in there, but I quickly found out that I don't remember as much as I should have and now, I just feel lost and not want to use it. Which is not good since I need to use this program. But the thing is once I start to work with it, it will be ok. The knowlage will be back and in constant use. I was already thinking that I needed to take some auto cad classes anyway, I just need to start back over again. It could be a good thing. :) So you know what I'm doing this summer. It's too late to file fin aid for a different school this winter.

Now, as for my day, I went to school, got some home work done. Picked up my skectch book and went to get some pictures scanned. Then after waiting in line, twice, scaning my documents without problems and saving them in the format that I really wanted, all got shot down when they tried to charge me $10 for just one pic to be copied to my thumb drive. $10 to move a file off a computer unto a thumb drive that I came with. $10 per coloured scanned. $10!

I told her she could keep them and walked out. I don't care if I acted or sounded like me mother at the time. $10 to give me the scan of a pic that I made and scanned myself. Each. I fougot that part. Each. I had 6 scans. Three were in colour, and I wasn't going to spend over $30 for my own stuff to be given to me.

I went to another place that was close by that I knew about, but they don't open on the weekend. I was on my way to the next place, that was as short bus ride away, but I was just hungry and went home instead.

For some reason I've been skipping meals lately and I'm not all that sure why.

Ok, I'm going to read something and lay down. It's 1am and I've been up since 9:30am.

Work In Progress.

I got a late start on this. It's for my Design class and it's due on Wednesday. I did this from memory, but I still have a few more windows to go and I have to put in stairs, an elevator and wheel chair ramp along with all the doors into and out of this building.

Then if I have time, I have the rest of the site to put on here. Plant boxes, benences and lights.

Can someone tell me how to put in a revolving door?

Oh, if you click on my name here, you should go to a page where you turn the building around and see a 360 of the building. :)

I really can't remember....

What I wrote about in my posts.

I just know that I'm at school hours after I wanted to be, but thanks to my 10 am alarm I made it here before noon. I just wish it wasn't so cold. At least I'll be inside tomorrow when it will be snowing I hear.

Well I'm here and so are the HAVC people. They seem to be missing a piece. They just broke for lunch and it just reminds me that I'm hungry but I don't really have time to get food and eat. :(.

Well see ya. I'm going to try an draw something.

October 26, 2011

Can’t do it now.. so tired, ….

and I have to be up early tomorrow.

The only thing about yesterday is that a black guy crossed the street sooner than he wanted to, to talk to me and get my number. All because of my big hair. Smile 

I was running late for school, so I told him I couldn’t stop. I wish it was someone that was more my type.Sad smile

ok… I guess I’m writing now.

Now before I switched over to today, I have to say that my rendering teacher thinks that I’m improving. I feel like I’ve said this. Odd. Well we did colours yesterday and other than not saturating the colour in the space I gave it enough, he liked it. Smile 

Now for today. I got one of four pages completed. Which is just as well since he gave me another section to draw. If I drew anymore I would have had to start back over. But I think that he gave me something else to do because I hadn’t gone that far in drafting up my other wall section.

I got up a little later than I did the day before since I didn’t really know what to do, and then I got lost in reading something that I found on line. Very not school related. So that would be why I only got One sheet done.

Last night I bought some grapes for two dollars that I got from this guy at school. I sell school supplies in my free time. Open-mouthed smile Not really. I got something called Friskit or something like paper. It cost me $13 for two yards I think. That is 6 feet by the way. So if anyone wants some in the class I’ll gladly give them some for a small money exchange. The trace paper I have anyone can have for free. Smile 

So I get home with my grapes last night and my mom eats almost all of them, so today on my way home again, I checked my pockets and found two more dollars so I got another bag. This time black seedless. Yesterday it was read seedless. That was a nice ‘invention’. You know people created the seedless grape right?

Oh, I seem to be now posting my poems over on DA now. They are well received it seems. I should post a fractal before I crawl into bed.

One last thing before I get off again. I got our optimum account fixed so now we have the optimum app on all our Apple products. We can watch live tv. scroll through a nice looking tv guide. Set up things to be recorded and watch On Demand shows/Movies. It also acts as I remote for the cable box. Smile 

Ok, that’s it. I’m out of here. Sleep well everyone.

October 25, 2011

I’m back again.

I remembered my mom.

She went to Canada 3 weeks back. I know I said something about it.

Well she came back Sunday morning. She brought back stuff with her too. Stuff to knit with. It seems to be hard to find what she likes here, but found it easy enough up there.

She had fun. Everything seemed to have worked out well for her, even if she forgot what day she booked her trip to Toronto for. Smile 

Let’s see?

I don’t want to talk about school. I might be getting betting better with my rendering class. My teacher seems to think so. I think that I might have felt differently if I was giving it more time. But with my detailing class, that’s not going to happen. I’m trying to read over and do some home work on my book class. Because of how my ‘well’ my first project went over with my design class, I think I should do good there. And I think I have more free time, or will have more free time, since I’m going to do the next project, or I’m going to try and do my next project in AutoCad.

I haven’t touched the program since the end of my AutoCad class last semester. I think I should have signed up to take another AutoCad class during the summer. I think I need to have reason or a plan really, before I open AutoCad. I’ll see if I could do something for the winter break at another school. I need to get that list of schools I can move credits from and to. Smile 

As for today, I got up at 7:30ap. But after waking up, taking a bath, getting something to eat, then hanging out on line checking mail and DA comments and stuff, It was after 9:30 by the time I left the house. When I got the shuttle, I ended up just missing the train so I had to wait for the next one. By the time I made it to the next station to transfer and have the train show up, it was like 9:56am.

I seem to just back petal and not get very far. I spent most of the day just doing research and trying not to fall asleep and getting some lunch.

Then I worked on darkening what I had gotten done and put in the dimension lines and more or less just prepping it for when I had to my lettering. I just ran into a block with doing my windows. I wish I had gotten that done, so I could work on my other two sheets tomorrow and look like I was finished instead of just passing the half way mark.

Oh, my class had to do two wall sections of this old brick city home. I did one section through a fireplace/chimney and the other had to go through the fright of the building. The one going through the front of the building is the one giving me hard ache right now.

So I’m off to bed. Later than I would have liked, but I’ll just get up at 8:30 instead and save breakfast for a take out affair since I only have cereal in the house. I could make some quick oatmeal. I’ll see.

Well that’s it.

Oh, no it isn’t. Just remembered.

My Inuyasha FanFic Is Now Finished!

Yeah. How could I have forgotten to tell you that? It finished it a while ago too. I ended on chapter 91. I somehow seemed to have ended it on a slight cliffhanger. I didn’t see it that, but one of my readers did. Now I’ve posted all chapters on DA and I’m still updating over on my Scribd account. I even made a cover for it, but I’m waiting for official permission from the owners of the bits I used to make it.

I have one. One other person seemed to have fallen off the face of DA, so I’m waiting for the last person to get back to me. Once I get the ok, I’ll work and putting them all together with the cover and book mark each chapter in a pdf file. Smile 

Ok, I have more, but I have to at least start laying down now. Smile 

Night. See ya tomorrow. I’ll let you know about the blow out from today and the rest of my day from today.

October 24, 2011

Not as early as I would have liked, but still good. I am now face to face with what I don't like about morning rus hour. Crowds and coffee. :(

Way Over Due

What was the last thing I wrote here? I don't know smile

I do know it’s been at least a week.

And even then I’m sure I held a few things back.

Like three weeks back or so I got my brother to take me into school for just after 8am. I’ve been measuring my other days by that, but I haven’t come close to that on my own. On a few days I was only there for like two hours.

Oh, I finished my first project for one of my classes and made a very bad model to go along with it. It wasn’t meant to be a sturdy as the others since I was trying to show how it would travel and come apart since I thought that was one of the selling points.

The teacher will be posting it, along with a pic of me that I’m sure I’m going to hate, and I’ll just point you there and you can see the others that were submitted at the same time. Now I think, as of presentation day, I had the most complete project and viable concept. Now I have work on the next one. A comuntiy center. You would think it wouldn’t be that hard. But I have a few things against me.

One, I don’t think I’ve really been in one. And two, I think we should stay a little away from making just a box of a building.

My other class that I was going in early for just … lets just say that teacher I was happy with for a most of last week.

Now it get interesting.

You saw my pic below right? The one of my grade in my only book class. I was feeling really happy with that class until my sister sent me a text to tell me that Nika wasn’t home yet. When she texted me that, It was already after 7pm.

So when class was over I was texting back and forth with her to find out what happened what was done and who was contacted.

In short, Nika never came home. No one she knew, from her friends to the girl next door, haven’t seen so the cops were called to help find her.

Then I get home  about 20 mins before the cops come back again and ask for something for the scent dogs to help find her. I came home to find her mother crying in bed, but when the cops came back, she had already left the apt to ‘look around’. She couldn’t stay still any longer.

Then a little after 10 pm, an hour after I got home, Nika rings the bell to come in. I thought that maybe the cops found her and let her buzz the bell. But no. She came walking in on her own looking tired.

When she rang the bell, her mother was on the phone, so we told her that she was home. Then the cops called her, and they came over to see her and find out what was going one and to return the pillow case.

At this point, we find out that she took the bus and got lost. You would think, oh well, that kinda understandable. But here is where it’s wrong.

One, she takes the train home. Two, she doesn’t know how the bus home and never have. Three, her mother asked her if she wanted to be showen how to get home by bus. She told her no, without even thinking about it the night before.

She told them, in such a way, that she got lost, that they didn’t believe her. This is when I find out that the night before another 11 year old girl was kidnapped and that they had called in extra people to help find her. They were searching parks and brought in the scent dogs. I don’t think I really knew what they had come before for, until then. Still. There was no look of guilt on this girl’s face at all.

The real story? Shifty Still not sure. She got on a B12, that doesn’t come anywhere near where we live, ended up on the G or E train some how, made her way on to a 2,3 train, that she should have taken hours before, and made it home, with a lot of walking in between.

Well, We had everyone that knew her, or my mom calling, when she was missing, then it spread just as fast once she was home.

The next day I went to school, but she was ‘sick’ and her mom called 911 and an ambulance came for her. Good Grief! What made that so perfect? At the start of the week if not the week before, a social worker came looking for her and her mom because she had missed so many days of school for the semester/school year.

We told them that this was going to happen. That she just can’t not go to school. That she had to go to sleep on time so she could wake up to go school. But no. And then her mother doesn’t push her to go to school anyway to teach her to go to bed on time.

Speaking of which. I have to be in bed too. I have to make up for not getting to school on Saturday. I didn’t have a class. I just go in for a few hours to draw and get my sketch book to do my home work for Monday’s class.

So I’m expecting to come home and find the social worker here one night and she will be surprised to see how much… input we really have with raising Nika.

I don’t know what else to say right now. But I’m sure I’ll think of something tomorrow. I’ll try again to add on to this in a new entry and let you know how my day went.

October 14, 2011

I was told that my OSHA exams were going to easy. That I didn't even need the book since he will give hand outs.

I think he changed it up this semester. I saw questions that we hadn't seen yet never mind answered. There was 6 or so of us, and I took my dear time to answere the questioons and I finished with the last person in the class with me, other than the teacher of course, less than an hour later. Later. Falling asleep here.

October 09, 2011

Seeking model project update... My hands hurt from cutting through a lot of sticks. I have started on my insulated canvas walls. I almost wish I had real canvas, but I'm using paper intead. I have the velcro. But I need some netting. Does anyone have any to give me?

October 08, 2011

So tired

Today I had my 9am to 3pm make up class.

We were there until 2:30pm really. It looked liked everyone made it. It was only like 7 of us. Oh... I remember. There was suppose to be one other guy. But he already said that he finished work at like 3am and 9am was to early for him to come in for class.

Well we broke for lunch and everyone went across the street to get subway. :) I got to use my subway card for all but one. I remembered after the first guy left. :)

It was a rather nice class even if I was falling asleep in parts. It's from 9am. I had my alarm go off at 7, then I couldn't get up until 15 mins later. I got my bath then I looked for something to wear. I tired on stuff and changed twice. In the end I wore a big red sweater thing, and I loosely call it a sweater, and packed a short sleeve shirt for when I left school since it was going to get really warm later.

My only problem was that the short shelved shirt was also shorter in length than I would have liked. I wore tights/leggings today to make sure my legs were warm on my way into class. I'm almost not worried about my ass being seen, but not my middle. So I walked around with in 80 degree weather with my fleece on and zipped up to just above my belly button while walking with my big sketch book, bag of scales and triangles and tools, then everything I got from the story to start my model and lastly by school bag.

At least I didn't have that big book from the class on me. I left it in my locker. I didn't want to lug that around with me. If I feel like I could stay up long enough to read it at home, I'll take it, but right now, I don't think that is going to happen. If I read it at all before our exam, this Thursday, it will be while I'm at school.

So I got home, stripped down, changed over to something lighter since I'm so hot, and see that the room needs some cleaning. My brother was here last night and he kicked/knocked some stuff onto the floor, and I have clothes left all over from the past two days. So I do some cleaning, but ended up eating a little of the sub that I packed from lunch and then fell asleep before I finish cleaning.

Now I'm up and watching my Chopped eps that the dvr recorded. It was only suppose to have one ep per week, which I would leave for mom to watch when she get's back, but I it looks like it's just taping all eps as they air. So I'm picking out the ones that we have already been seen and leaving the new ones for her.

Well time to do something for a bit.

October 06, 2011

I had a late start today. I just had to sleep in. I can not be sleep deprived. When I was tired from working two jobs, 8 hours each, I gave up dinner for sleep. Today I just needed to stay in for an extra hour.. Or two. I was there by 11. I woke up before 10. I was in the shower by that time.

Well I got my site plan done. Tomorrow is my last drawing class for my em shelter. When school closes, I'll ge getting my things to make my model. I would like to put it together at school, but ... But what? I'm taking the other drawing home to draw on my table top that I'm piuttingon my mom's bed... I'll see. Either which way, I'm get the parts tomorrow and I have a whole day, 9-3 make up class, so, I'm not drawing anything at school Satuday. :(

The weather has taken a dive and people are getting sick all around me at school. I'm still in good health, just cramps at the moment.

Well, Imm almost home. On th S. I got out early today. Later people. :)

October 04, 2011

Second Chance

Well, after hurting my eyes again for the second day in a row, I got some good news.

I made a slight mistake with how wide my bathroom is on the second floor, but I can fix it. I'm sure I can. I'm allowed to move walls. :)

Well, about the second chance thing.

My teacher for my Detailing 2 class said that we can correct/finish our work from these past 3 weeks and present a complete(ish) work next week. I'll will have time, more time than I did last week anyway. Tomorrow is my last day to finish up drawings for my other 'design' class. I have to get as much as I can do so that by the time the class is over he can approve them so I can start my model.

Yep, I said model.

I have to make a model.

Paper fear me like you have feared no one before.

... Me? Make a model? I have never made a model before. But in all honestly, I don't think that it will be that bad. I have something rather simple to make this time around.

More pictures to post.

When I get around to it.

I'm going to be crashing soon. I'll be up at 7:30 again today. I think I'll bye breakfast today. I still have alot to do for my class tomorrow. One elevation, two sections, and one 'sub floor' plan.

Just leaving the house. An hour later than yesterday, but I will still get there in good time.

I told some one that I spent 13 hours at school yesterday, 3.5 of them for a class. It looks like today will be more of the same.


October 02, 2011

Ok. How cold is it up there? It's like 53 here. I'm staying in bed till noon. Later.

Nearing The Weekend

Well for the whole week I have been getting to school between 12pm and 2pm and drawing. Until yesterday it was for one class, which I didn't finish by the way. But besides not finishing, he didn't seem other wise displeased by it.

From yesterday I started on the other class that I have a very large amount of drawing to do for. I showed up around 2 today because I didn't have a class tonight. It was canceled. I have yet to read anything and I've got 4 chapters and questions for each chapter to complete. :(

Tomorrow I'm going back in and working on what I left off on. I think I an really going to have most of it done tomorrow, so I can switch back to the other one before I leave. The other one I'm hating. The one I have to start on. I hate stairs. Hate them. But I have to design some in the craftsman style.

I have to get there before 12 tomorrow because the school closes early on Friday, and they will not be open on Saturday. So I can't do any morning drawing. This is when I'll be doing my third drawing class work. Perspective, angle, shadows, and entourage times 2. I have to do over what I did last week. My angles/perspectives were off for some things.

Well, besides drawing and getting..'lead' on my hands, I got a new bag to hold my stuff in. The last one had holes in it and my lead holder almost fell out. Odd name. It's a mechanical pencil for architects. :) I shared my coupons for subway and Burger King. Yesterday I got a 6" sub, drink and chips for $3. Today I got a foot long for $4.70 or so. Under $5. Tomorrow I'm going to use my last $1.99 coupon. I will pay $3 after taxes but it's still great.

I also walked into a class I already took to see what was going on to rest my eyes. I'm going to need glasses soon. Since the end of last semester I knew it was going to happen. I can see, I just can't look at somethings for long and using the scales, you call them rulers, tend to make it worst.

Either way, I think the class sizes are down. But in most of our classes we hear all our teachers saying that we are their biggest class ever. We ranged between 12 and 19. I had my first small class this semester. In Rendering Class with the angles shadows and such. We have 7 people. The class I hung out in had 6.

Anyway, I'm home now. I'll have to get up at 10 so I can be out by or before 12pm. I will need the whole afternoon to make it look like I worked on the something. next week I'll have to start showing up at the school at 10 am or earlier. Not looking forward to that. ... I stayed back to school didn't I?

Skype. I'm on skype. I was checking it out for my mom since she is going to Canada tomorrow, and with calling people she needs a cheep way to do it and AT&T doesn't do cheep for Canada never mind roaming. I wish there was a way to turn off 3G like how you can turn off wireless.

Well I got her an account and I'll remind her about putting money on it before she leaves. I'll have to have my skype while she's gone so she can call the 'house'. She is also taking the iPad with her. So no more school access for me. I need to get some songs to add to my play list now.

A whole month! :( Yes I'm upset about loosing the iPad for that long. It's great for research. :(

September 26, 2011

Now I'm on my way home to do it again it again tomorrow.

New Last Stop Over the weekend.

The Q is acting odd. I left home alittle later than I wanted. Remembered that trains run at different times on the weekend and now the trains that I chose are acting odd. I'll get to school in time to collect my sketch book and nothing else.

September 24, 2011

Interesting… afternoon

I have no real right to call it an interesting day since the morning only saw my sleeping until 10am when my alarm went off for me to take my pill, which I ended up taking 2 hours later than I should have.

Either which way. You know of my plan to get to school and how that went south.

The interesting part starts when I went to exchange my new sketch pad that I got from the art store for $16. Lucky me I still had my receipt in my little purse, so it was ok to exchange it. I also looked at some colour pencils. The expensive kind. I had already gotten some, but they weren’t good enough.

While I was giving the attendant a headache over the ones I wanted to take or, and needed, another person from my school showed up to get something also.

I ended up getting a refund on the $16 on my credit card and paid for the odd bits I picked up with cash. I had money on me. I thought I might have had some. I just didn’t look to make sure I still had it for when I need it. Now I have to go forget again. Smile 

Well after that, there was the other colour pencils that I had to return to OfficeMax, but on my way there I decided to swing by Walgreen to see if they had their ink refilling machine fixed. But on my way there, I decided to swing by this indoor market to get some raisin bread, but when I got there, I didn’t see the market. They seemed to have been moved to Sundays. Today it was some kind of rally to get Trader Joe’s to pay farmers 1 cent more per pound for their veggies.

They seem to be one of the last hold outs to this … plan. Other stores have already agreed and are doing it. They were to even have a march at 4pm. I didn’t plan on being in town that long and I don’t really march on anything. I thought it was something that I they would have been doing already if not one of the first, so I signed my name to something that they had there, and wished them luck before moving on.

On my way to Walgreen again, after a 2 block detour, I ran into or should I say saw a peaceful march. I wanted to cross the street, but the light was against me. So I stood still and they quietly marched past me. After they left, I kinda wished that I took a pic of them. It was something about Yemen. 

Then I just made my way back the way I came, and onward to Walgreen. There I was told no, to the only question I had for them and should have left, but I stayed to look at the 50% off cart that was right in front of that counter.

It mostly looked like stuff for the Wii, but I was hoping to find something interesting. What I got was a guy wanting to hold my hand. Odd I know. He was nice. It started out with wanting to see how long my fingers were and how big my hand was and we matched palms and ended up lacing our fingers a few times.

It was odd, like I said, but also nice. He was nice. I know I said that before. Well he complemented me on my fingers and hands, and just before he left, he asked me what perfume I was wearing. I know, old line, but we were quite close, he would have been able to smell it on me.

I was thrown and came back with and old and normally right answer. I don’t wear any. It was afterwards that I realize that I did put some on, but I haven’t a clue what the name of it is. I just took one that my mom had. I’ll have to take the bottle with me when it’s out to replace it. Smile 

Well I ended up walk out of the building with him and as luck would have, we were kinda going in the same direction. He was going to the long island rail road and I was headed to BestBuy and office max.

Just before we parted ways, he asked for my number. I am shocked once again and told him that I would be busy with school. As we parted ways I regretted not giving him my number or getting his.

He was nice. We could have been friends. Talk to each other once a month or something. We got along well. Now I want it to be known that I highly commend him for taking a chance and talking to me the way he did. It worked. It honestly did. I was just so surprised at someone talking to me, and in such a nice way, that I reacted poorly.

I wish he had asked for my number again. I would like to think that I would have given it for him. That way once he got back from Long Island he could at least have told me how helping his friends move turned out.

Well I’m never going to see him again. That is one of the down sides of living in such a big place. If this was back home, we would have just said where we could have been found before running off to where we were going, and just asking around would have gotten us to find the other person again.

I also feel bad that I don’t remember his name. I was just really embarrassed that my nails weren’t as clean as they could be. But I was very happy that he didn’t seem to notice.

So I walk on. All the time thinking that I could go and catch up with him, but I still had this wild notion that I would be able to still use my transfer to get back home.

I go up to BestBuy, and pay them before walking back out and going to OfficeMax that was down stairs. I ran into a few little issues. Well I didn’t. The lady doing the return kept hitting the wrong button which would have her re-entering the barcode number and my card’s number a number of times before she got it right.

Then I walked over to bus stop and waited for the bus to show up, which wasn’t long. We were almost waiting for the same light at different corners. I got to the bus stop just in time.

The rest of my trip was mundane. Then I checked my mail after getting home and eating some left over. Chase took $12 out of my account for some fee that I don’t know about, since I haven’t used in over a week since I was down to $11.09. So I moved $20 over from my savings. I hope that saved me from any penalties. I was only in the negative for 91 cents.

But this is Chase we are talking about. So after I moved the money, I sent them an e-mailing asking what the $12 fee was for and if I had to pay an over drawn fee on 91 cents.

The over draw happened at 6 something this morning, so since a whole day didn’t go by before I fixed it, I hope that means a no, but I won’t know for a while.

Now I’m going to give my attention over completely to watching Star Trek on BBC American. Smile 

Yeah. We got it and new ep of Dr. Who tonight.

Almost 2 pm

See what time I got there? Do you see?!.. :( at least I got my sketch pad.

I'll just have to make up my mind to get here before noon for the whole week to get me drawings done on time.

Going Home In The Rain

Rainy days make me sleepy, but I had to go to school. I was suppose to be there drawing yesterday, Wed morning really, but I wasn't feeling well.

Well I got about an hour of drawing in before 5 when they said they would be closing. I will have to get here like 11am tomorow. They close at 2 and if anything, I need my sketch pad from my locker so I can do my home work for Monday's class. So much drawing. :(

I was crying last semester that I had two drawing class, and now I have 3. :( I'm Insane.

The Week Is Over...

As in I don't have class on Fridays. Which is great for when you need time to do your projects.

I have three 'drawing' classes and one book/reading class this semester. There was a slight hiccup with one of them. They had me written down for design 2 class and I had never laid eyes on the first one yet. It turned out to be a good thing that class one and two were combined this semester.

I have something of a drawing to post from my first class, just hate showing how bad it is. My first teacher doesn't think that drawing, in and of itself, is talent. The talent comes from choosing what to draw and how you want to draw it. Since I still suck at drawing, I don't really believe him.

Since I didn't have a class today, I made myself write on the last chapter of 'Together'. I wrote just over 3 pages in one go. Before I went to bed, I fought the urge to end the chapter there and start a new one.


Since there will be no extra chapters, it will be about 7 or so pages by the time I'm done. I had one page finished when school started, and I hadn't touched it since I posted the last chapter last week. So now I'm up to 4 pages. I should have it finished by the end of next week. That reminds me. I have to go post the next chapter over at FF . net. I'm behind there. I wanted to post every other day or so there. So I'm back by 5 or so chapters.

I'm rendering now, like I was doing last night. I said that I was going to try for this week's fractal contest over at DA. Two weeks back I had made three to pick from, but I forgot about the dead line and didn't post anything in the end. I'll set an alarm this time to make sure I don't miss it. :)

I just got back from BestBuy. I went to take back a keyboard that my mom spilled water into. I found the last one to exchange it for, but I didn't have my photo ID on me, so I couldn't leave with it. So I have to be there by noon to get it, or it goes back on the shelf.

Well here is to the weekend and the homework it brings.

Oh, my brother is back for a while, so he wants to go out with me. So I think I'll be out a bit Sunday night watching a movie with him. It's only because he won't be here for 3 years when he leaves again in a few weeks.

Later people.

My Laugh for the day.

This video cycling screen saver is on my mom’s side of the computer, and like always, she just walked away from it.

Well the screen saver comes up and I saw this, and just laughed. :) It was just funny to me. And it’s sweet enough that a lot of people would like it.


Yeah It’s Been A while.

Firstly, I didn’t loose power, or got flooded, or was scared out of my wits by the high winds.

Secondly, I barely felt the earthquake. It was all the way down in VA, but I did feel it. It was news even though half of us didn’t feel it at all. I just wish I heard some news coming out of that state as to how bad it was for them. For me it was a wobble.

A wobble that I hoped didn’t mark the lack of will the building had to keep standing. I got my attention because my bed felt like it was imitating water. I got up, and put something on incase I had to run out, but as I finished, it stopped.

Then I forgot about it until the lady from next door came over making noise like the world as at an end and complaining that she can’t reach anyone on the phone.

I called my mom and it said that the network was busy. So I told her that, and went back to watching tv. She continued to go on and on over it. I tried to block her out as much as I could.

Thirdly, said woman came over, caused issues, then threatened her kid over something, and that just sent my other two sisters over it. Even my mother told her that if she hit that child for asking to play with my niece, she would hit her.

There was so much screaming going on in here. I wouldn’t be surprise if the other apts stopped and paid attention to what was going on over here. And then, one of my sisters, who really, really doesn’t like anyone beating kids at all, was really, really not happy with what she was saying so she called the cops on her.

Mom did not like that at all. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so upset ever. She didn’t think that the lady (K) would have really hurt the girl. The cops showed up. K called another (friend), and she called mom, and mom goes on a titrate again, so the sister that called the cops went out and said something to kinda make it go away. They just told her she shouldn’t be making such calls when the city was getting ready for the storm.

Oh… fourth adventurer, I went out in the ‘storm’ before it really hit. I went to and old school friend in his new place. So new it only had pop corn and liquor in his pantry. Smile and he expected to cook me lunch. Well he did mange something with a box of pasta, some box of crushed tomatoes and a brussels sprouts. Smile It was good, but I think next time we will eat out. Smile 

We then walked home in the rain. It wasn’t raining when I told him I was heading out, but he said that he wanted to walk me home and he felt like getting out. After he fixed his bed with way too many covers and took a bath, it had started to rain. I’m glad that I brought my big umbrella. Smile 

Well have to give the desktop up.

Later. Smile

Oh, one last thing. I’m like a chapter away from finally ending my Inuyasha yaoi fanfic. Smile Three years. I have been at this for over there years.

I’m posting chapter 81 tonight over at

New Dish

The picture does not do it justice. :( I looked much n better.

I’ve Screwed Up My VS for Win7

If you don’t know what that is, that you may not get the rest of this post.

I, who should be asleep, or reading over a chapter that I have to post later, decided to go and mess with my visual style on my windows 7 desktop.

I tried to install a third party version, one that was made by someone else besides Microsoft, and it didn’t work. Then I saw other folders in there that I thought I left there from another time I was messing with the skins on here, so I got ride of them, but I moved Aero around too much, because I didn’t know what it was, and now it won’t work.

The Aero VS that is. And since that is the only one I seem to be able access, I went and got windowblinds to help patch this. The whole system can’t use the VS now.

So I’ll be looking for a Aero look alike for my mom’s profile on this computer so she doesn’t know something is off.

So what else have I been up to?

Well I added a new little thing on this page. It’s a slide show of all my picture art over at Deviantart. You can make it go full screen and it will take over you whole desktop, which I thought was neat. Smile

I also added ‘A Word A Day’ over on my stories site that I just got back.

Other news. My mom has just started to watch church every day on the computer. ‘Our’ with bad mics. They hit a note and it’s a 10 year old went happy on a chalk board. And to top that off, she’s going deaf and has the speakers up to loud. She refuses to use any kind of head phones. Yesterday you could hear it through out the whole apt through two doors.

And she actually fell asleep, but woke up angry at me for turning it off when she woke up more than 30 mins later. She then fell asleep 5 mins later and woke up again to complain that I didn’t that screeching racket back on. I told her she fell asleep and she didn’t believe me or was just upset that I refused to do it.

What else? Oh, I think I have a new friend. He lives over in Long Island. We of course met on DA. I don’t go out. Without school, I stay up way to late, go to sleep anywhere between 4am and 1pm and then wake up about 8 hours later.

I’ve actually gotten out a hand full of times in the last month, and I found out that I have cavaties again. Sad smile that ruined a already lack luster day. So now my sister, the one with the job in a dental office, is now planning a trip out to Long Island to see the only dentist that she use to work for and trust it seems. It’s set for August some time. …

Oh, I forgot t say. Last week some bold man walked into my sister’s dental office, made his way to the closets and stole two hangs, one of which was my sister’s and took the wallets and purses from the others.

Yes there is a front desk, and yes people were there, with their backs turned to the door. And yes, they have cams there, but they must be in very bad places since they had to use the cams from the lobby to get a pic of the guy’s face. Which weren’t as good as theirs. This is why she came home after 11pm that night. One of the main reasons why, was because she had to help the other girl, who can’t talk to anyone it seems, who lost over $100.

On the bright side, my sister had a reason to take out her iPad out of her bag that day, so she still has that. But the bag that she got to hold the iPad and her phone and stuff, which cost her $150 is gone.

What else?

I should try and get some pics of Nika. She’s growing up and washing her clothes on her. Which makes me wonder why my mom is still having issues with her going outside to play by herself.

She has to put her clothes in a bag. Put that bag in a cart. Push that cart up to the top of the block, turn and go two shops in, and then do the whole holding and putting in detergent and the money bit and then there is the moving it to the dryer and then home 40 mins after that. Most of the time she is out of apt and much further away than if she was just playing outside.

But the news from the the other day didn’t help calm her fears much, but I told her that she can’t keep Nika in side all the time. BTW, most of us are Vitamin D deficient. I might be, but it’s documented that my mom and my other sister is.

Ok, I think I’ll end this here. E-mail jhoyelba at If you feel like it. I can’t talk back to anyone via the comment thing here.
