No, my account has not been hacked or anything like that.
I just started to play this game. It's the first that I have ever seen that had a text your friend choice. :)
I might hold on to this game for a while, but I won't play it as much as I use to play My Town Two.
Yes, this is what I'm doing when I'm sick. Trying to breath, sneezing my brains out, playing games and watching movies on Netflix. I did the sleeping thing earlier. I slept the who day away once I was able to breath. I'm so happy I had those Breath Right strips.
She told us that we were going to have one 3 weeks ago before the storm, but I was hoping that she forgot when she didn't say anything about it last week. Nope we got it today. I barely looked at the document she took the words from.
My only issue was my decision not to cast shadows from the 'trees' in the bottom one. The reason I decided no to is because they kind didn't have a mass. Yes I gave them a colour and shades, but that is all I decided to give them in the end. It took me hours.
I used graphite pencils, coloured pencils, a wood-less brand, and then the squares connecting all three are done in pastels.
When I was done I placed it in the office and had it propped up in a chair so that everyone could see it. :)
As for my train project for Design class, I got back an e-mail from the teacher that I did well even though I didn't send a model. I'm going to still work on it, but just not as hard as I was going. In fact I took today off. Yesterday I had my last finial exam for NYC Building Codes. I felt like I glided through that one rather well. Besides reading one question wrong and spending a while looking for the answer I'm very happy with what I handed in. I may get an A from it. I hope to just get a B in that class. I don't want to see another C. :(
Now it's time for me to look over my story that I had to stop for school. I should be getting some kind of job this summer and I get some time in with my writing before that stops me.
Not this Thursday, but last week Thursday I went to a funral. My aunt Phillys passed a few days before. It turned out to be a good thing that I didn't have class that day. It was postponed for two weeks.
Either way, early in the week, if not on the weekend, we had gotten a call from my cousin calling to say that was in the hospital and that it didn't look good. She called in alot of people/family members. I was one of the few who didn't go. But I sent my well wishes that it wasn't so bad. As it turned out I was wrong. After not going to the hospital, I had to go to the funeral, even if I didn't want to be there.
Turns out I had walked pass this church like two years ago when Tanzi was still living in Seattle, but came to the East cost to see poetry reading and invited me along with Hayden, then found a friend who tried to get us to go with her to the club. Since it was a Friday night, that was a big no go, since I was already pushing it by being out at all after dark on a Friday night.
So the church. I was told it was a funeral. A funeral to me includes the burning part, but it doesn't seem to work that way up here, or it didn't that day. Her immediate family was the most moved of course. He kids were crying alot and a pretty full church turned up. I would saw to wish her off, but I have mostly been raised to believe that the dead can't hear you and anything you do for them after they have past, is entirely for the living.
Here they talked as if she could hear them and was already in heaven and then the 5, do you hear 5, pastors of the/her church preceded to laid it into you that you had to be saved if you wanted to see her again. Since one of her sons wasn't all that into the church it was actually aimed at him a few times. I thought that was tactless. It didn't help that he was crying most of the time over her death either.
Her other son flew up from FL. I didn't even know he had moved out of the state. My brother also flew in from Hawaii with his wife. I didn't expect him to fly in but he did grow up with her more than I did. He arrived in full military dress. I for some reason thought that he came right from the airport like that. It turns out that he came in very casual dress a few hours earlier, not knowing he was suppose to be dressed in his best. So he was sent home to change and showed back up just in time for the near ending and the food afterwards.
Now considering that the service was like 4 hours long... noise, lights, preaching that could be called noise, and a few bits of other people talking that was a different voice to hear, it was a wonder he came back at all. I wouldn't be surprised if he called first to make sure it was still going before he arrived.
The food wasn't all that great, but I got a very cream-less, butter-less, milk-less pate. I talked with my father, and got the phone number of the son who had moved out of state. For some reason he was talking to me about moving down south. I would have to take a few classes to do that. Different climate so some rules will change.
Well when we got finally got back home around midnight, we realized that my sister Philly had been locked out. We all went to the service and she is the only that didn't have keys. If we had remembered we would have lift some keys with someone for her. She waited over at friends apt until we got back.
The next day my aunt was buried. In New Jersey. Either it was cheaper to bury her out there, or the ones around here are full.
Now let it be known, that I don't dislike my aunt. For the most part she was very nice to me. I just never saw that much of her. I was and still not very big on family get togethers.
Which doesn't bode well for me since I have a family wedding to attend to in Canada in July. I'll be up there for a whole week. As if the event itself wasn't enough of an event for me.
Well see yeah next update. I should be this week coming. I was planing on doing it now, but I was suppose to write this up like 4 hours ago, but like most of my life for the past 3 months, I got caught up in something else and didn't do what I was suppose to be doing.
I have run out of time. I need to get some projects done in the next few days. So I'm off to do that. If you swing by my face book. I think I have link, you will see the pics of my projects there. I'll try and post them here in bit.
We got here at 9:15am or so. Nika has ben sleeping for most of the time. It's when we had to move due to a leaking celling, that Jhodie decided to join her. It is now 12:20 something and we are waiting for our housing interview. We are looking for a bigger place. My sister thinks that they lied when they said the place was new construction once we got here.
The fire department said the building is over capacity by 6000 people. There are about 17,000 people in here right now.
-- There were another 1000 so on the outside with me trying to get in. 100 or so went up on the external balany and looked in on the warm people and the band playing in the lobby. :)
If you weren't inside when the doors were closed, you weren't getting in that night. For them to allow anyone in, other than people working that night, the building would have to come down to the buildings rated capacity, and then loose about half of what was left.
That wasn't going to happen in the next two hours that the party would be on for on the inside. So I was just going to leave the only person who was there for me to meet. Tanzi. :)
Well she was tried, so she walked me home and talked about a few things. My house isn't that far away.
We are going to try for a day time movie next weekend or something.
There should be a picture below showing you some ear buds that I got like 3 days ago. I hated them. They hurt my ears, always felt like they were falling out, even after I jammed them in there and the sound was all base. You couldn't really hear the singer most of the time. So on the second day I got some $1.99 ones until I could get them exchanged. Amazing they fit my ears much better.
But anyway. Today I took those things back and the guy agreed to change them for $10 ones since I didn't have the box the others came in. I didn't want to try the Coby for some reason. Like I had some kind of bad suppressed memory, so I ended up picking these.
They are great. They fit into your (my) ears really well. Nice soft tips and I got the different sizes. The other one said that they had, but none were in the box.
Well, they fit in your ear so well, that they dim most of the noise around you, so if you just want to mute some of the racket around you but still here what is going on, these are good. I wanted red since I had kinda put myself out on that limb with the other ear buds, so this is what mine really look like. Now since they are Gumy, the colour is Raspberry Red. :)
Since they are only $10 I think I may now have a buy worthy brand. :) Now to see how long they last. The ones that I'm replacing lasted me for over a year and a half. I think I got them when I came back from Philly. I also think they were $20 and I got them at Radio Shack.
I got tired of signing out of my Google account that was attached to my blog and into the one for my mail, so I invited myself to co author on all my blogs. I can't change what I posted in the other account, and I might not be able to do it the same from the other side, but at least I can blog now.
This two google account thing goes back like 5 years almost. I didn't know that they were all linked or I might not have made them separate.
Either way. I was very happy to see my first exam score today. I wasn't happy with myself when I was done taking it. But now I know I had like the second highest. But what can I say? We only have 10 people in my class. :) One of the smallest classes I've been in since starting this school.
Oh, my name is on the graduation list for some reason. Since I have to come back for one lass next semester, I was surprise to fine it on there.
So unless I really mess up, or can't get the money for that last semester. since my finaid via PEL run out this semester, I'll have my Associate Degree in Architecture.
I will have my piece of paper soon it seems. Do I feel like I've really accomplished something? No? Do I feel ready to join the field? No. But I still have to do it.
I have been doing well in my Rending class. I'll have few more drawings to post soon. Like the last two, they will over at DA (deviantart) I only had like two to post last time, but I will have three if I scan them this week. 4 if I wait until next week. I was slightly impressed that I'm doing so well.
You forgot that my blogs did 180 turns didn't you?:)
Well my first project for design class wasn't that great. You saw something it below. I need to finish my floor plans, do two sections and make a touchable model. The digital thing you see there, is just to sow the sides of the buildings/elevation. And roof top view.
So it's incomplete, and I was thinking of getting it ready to show this week, but I couldn't find alot of what I wanted to make it with or from. We were told to make it 1/8" scale, but I'm having a hard time finding model things that are that small. So I will have to order them on line so there is no where I can get it done when I first wanted. So I will just have to turn it in one week from the end of the semester since my finial project is due at the end of the semester.
Ok, I have to go do something. ... android related.
I know, I've been awall, but I haven't had much drive to do much. As my first project for my Design 2 class will prove. I'm so behind in doing that. But I wasn't feeling well and my mom got a new computer and that had to get set up before I could use it.
I felt like I was a little a head of some of the other students, but when I was working on it in Autocad to get my floor plans as done as I could before getting parts for and working on my model, I realize that my building is bigger than the lot it's suppose to sit on. I don't know if I can fix it before then. So I'm ready to fudge one or two things so that it isn't seen. I'll loose a point, or 5 over it, but I'll still have a good grade for it and I'll have the other two projects to help cover it for my over all grade.
In other school news, I had a driver. His wife called me the other woman, playfully, but we were just friends. Well I would like to think so. We laughed, helped each other out with school work. We had health juices together. We talked about stuff and he gave me rides home.
That was last semester. He has slowly been disappearing from school and my life. I haven't seen him in a week now. I don't take it personally. He has a demanding job, and a life. I just wish for a text telling me what is going on other then having to text him myself to find out and feel like I'm butting in. I guess I can't keep many 'friends' for long.
My other classes are going fine, and I don't expect to have issues with them. If I hadn't dropped a class three semesters ago this would have been my last semester. And it would have worked out with my finaid too, but as it stands, that kinda ends this semester. So I will have to do something to earn money for my last 'semester'. It feels odd calling it that since I'll just be doing one or two classes. If I have the money I'll take an extra class,
Ok. None school wise.
I started writing another story before school started, and I'm still kinda at it. I'm at a stand still now. For a number of reasons, but I haven't stopped. Just paused.
I've posted the complete pdf's of two of my stories over at DA. (Deviantart)
My sleeping is shot. I've been going to sleep at sunrise since school started. I've managed to survive, but I'm going to work and get that under control so I can go into school early and do some reading home work and drawings before class starts. I may be staying up that late, but I know that anything I do after 2am isn't worth dirt and doing stuff over twice because of dumb mistakes sucks. Btw, this is the first time I've made a building too big. So I don't know if there is a fault outside of myself or if I'm over looking something.
I found a new anime to watch. Natsume Yujin-cho. I found it on Crunchyroll.com. It's like xXxHolic. As in there is a boy that see's demons.From there it's a new story. Here is a link so you can look at it yourself. http://www.crunchyroll.com/natsume-yujin-cho
One reason why I've dragged myself here is because an old friend called me up. I'm surprised and happy that we are still calling up each other. I'll have to call her up first one of these times. I think about her but I just feel like I have nothing to talk to her about. Yet when she called me we did. Oh well.
Ok, that should be enough for now.
Oh, I have to look for model parts and a book, and .. there was something else.....
