I’ve been nudged. By rights, I should have been punched, considering the way I’ve been slacking over here. More than half a year has already past since I posted here. It never seemed that long to me, since I have been lurking around in various places on my f-list. But I guess a sign of life would be nice to some.

Well. I haven’t really been doing much other than being a mom and being a student. Exciting things don’t happen to people like me. In fact, my life has been really boring and uneventful.
A short while ago I read through some of my old entries, rifling through my writing projects. I miss writing (for myself and for the simple pleasure of writing) more than I thought I would. Perhaps I’ll continue some things in the summer holidays.
Another thing I should really work on some more is my community. I haven’t posted a photoshop tutorial in ages, and I said I’d post one around Easter time. *blush* It’s to be a tutorial on how to make a space scene, planets, star field and nebula included. -.-
I’m an idiot to have put a deadline on that.
But there you go. Viva la slackarina!

I hope that everyone has been having a good time. See you around, everybody!

And before I forget:
Someone gave me some hugs. Thanks stranger!

James Oliver Rigney aka Robert Jordan died. He's been ill for quite a while now, but apparently he never recovered properly.
I've read many of his books. In fact, his The Wheel of Time series was what made me start reading English novels with a passion when I was 19. It's a shame that he has passed away now. It would have been nice to see what he would or might have come up with in future projects.

R.I.P. Mr. Rigney.

first off, I have another newbie on my f-list. welcome to kandi_hearts, a young woman (I think it's a she) who I met over at my community.
Nice to meet you! I hope to be getting to know you better soon.

And then I found a fun meme-thing via qfemale. It means nothing.

And someone gave me more hugs, too!
Thank you very much, stranger! =D

Other than that, not much worth talking about is going on, even though things are fairly busy.

I hope that all of you are doing fine, and that you and yours are well.
A lovely day/night/evening/etc. to everyone!

I was working on a tutorial, and ended up with an interesting background. I used that as a base for textures... or bases/background graphics etc.
I hope you like them.
These textures are large. If you'd like to use these for icon-making, you'll have to crop them yourself. =P

I’m so rude!
I should have done this days ago.
There’s a new member on my f-list, and what’s really special about him is that he lives in the same city as I do! We met over at my community, and I don’t think we know each other personally at all. Coincidences, ne?
Anyway. The young man seems to be a multi-lingual multi-talent who’s into TV shows and icon-making. But I don’t know much about him yet, hehe.
Welcome, mr_spiddy!
I hope you’ll like it here. I haven’t been very active at my journal of late, nor have I been very active over at my f-list of late either. *blushes*
My journal is full of junk. Hardly anything sensible can be found here, and most of my entries are a random mumbo-jumbo of musings.
I hope they won’t scare you away. =P

A brief update before I have to run off to classes.
I would like to introduce someone new on my f-list, and wish her welcome to my journal.
For once, I’m certain it’s a she, hehe. She is a huge fangirl of the Asian pop/music culture. (I’m not sure about the exactness of this statement) and she’s learning Japanese… or about to start.
Other than that, she’s also into icon-making, and very good at her craft.
Welcome x_shock_me_x! I hope you’ll like it here, though you will likely not find much sensible at my journal. =P

Ok. What’s new?
I won at an icon-test, hehe. The best one ever! You can find my winning icons and the banners in my profile, if you’d like to check them out.
Yeah. Since my icons in the other tests I’ve joined hardly got any voices, I thought I’d take my lack of skill to a place where I was bound to be voted for: worst_icontest, where the worst of the worst are voted for. So yay for me! Joined first time and won two awards.

Dear HP fans
Please don’t hate me to death for mutilating Hermione as I did.

I also joined Deviant Art and uploaded some wallpapers. Some fake Matrix-code ones in different colors, and the alien one you can see in my new layout.
You can go check, if you like, and tell my how bad the font is I chose. >.<

Anyway. I need to be off now.
Brain-fodder is calling.
Have a nice day, everyone!

I just found a sweet little meme!
Lots of fun, so join in if you like:
You get to post 12 of your favourite icons which you have made, and shamelessly pimp yourself or spread the icon-love. Whichever way you like!

Just thought I’d mention it before I run off to procrastinate study again.

You Are Austin
A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. You're totally weird and very proud of it. Artistic and freaky, you still seem to fit in... in your own strange way. Famous Austin residents: Lance Armstrong, Sandra Bullock, Andy Roddick

I think it's about time I posted something sensible here soon. Either I have too much time or my reasons to rant have suddenly vanished...
Or maybe I'm simply lazy.

Knowing me, the latter is quite likely.

Both memes pilfered from lizphairrulz 

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.




If you've seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 movies on this list. Copy this list, paste it as an entry in your LJ. Then, put x's next to the movies you've seen, add them up. Have fun!

I think I know who you are, but I can’t be certain. Know this:
I love you!
You are such a darling for giving me all those hugs. ^_^
I’m going to spread some love now, too.

(Maybe it's even more than one person - one can never know. *hugs them all back*)

But before I go, I have some super long memes for you. I will definitely not blame you if you don’t read or reply, hehe.
I don’t think I’d read everything if you posted all this either. =P

I guess I should go and get a life. I really need one…

A meme pilfered from arrietty 
We all have things about our friends that make us slightly envious.

Not in a bad way, but in a ‘Wow! I wish I had that person’s hair/eyes/money/relationship/toenails/whatever/

So tell me what about me makes you envy me… then post this in your blog and see what makes me envious of you.

Welcome to a young lady (I’m assuming she’s a she. Slap me if I’m wrong) I met over at my shiny new comm.! She has many interests, most of which I don’t have the slightest clue of – yet Tolkien and gory toons are amongst them. She also seems to be into photoshopping, and even won an award for one of her icons.
Welcome fleur_de_mort!
Most of my posts are public, and all of them are full of mush and randomness.
I hope you’ll find things of interest over here all the same. =D

Ok. That said, let’s get ready to bash…

*roars* I have conquered the fires of fever! *thumps chest*
The battle was long and hard, but I was victorious all the same. My head doesn’t hurt anymore, nor do my eyes. Yay!
Well. My throat feels worse than before, though, and so do my ears. A trip to the doc is in need, and it’s about time they opened up their practices again. I wonder what kind of foul brews I’ll be forced to swallow in order to get better.

To the point of this post.
Another intro to make. A young man from Texas with a very unusual pseudonym. I always read “lip hair rulz” but the “z” distracts me, and tells me that I’m totally wrong.
Welcome to lizphairrulz, fan of music and video-games. *squeeeee* Yay for tunes and games.
Hope you’ll find things of interest over here.

Ok. Anyway. I’m off to read netaria’s latest rant on writing, and then I’m finally gonna catch up on all those to_boldly_nano challenges. I’m way too far behind.
Sorry if I haven’t been commenting on journals lately. If you’ve been keeping track of mine, you’ll know why.
If not, then I won’t have to ask your forgiveness. *coughsnickerscoughcough*

A lovely day/night/morning/afternoon/evening to all of you, depending on where you are in the world.

Hello everybody.
I have an introduction to make.
Welcome to a new member on my f-list, an extremely hot-looking young man (if I may go by his usericons) with a sweet sense of humor:
He says he's quirky, I say he's charming, and I can't take my eyes off of his layout. Lots of sexy-ness going on over there. *screams*

Welcome, sir. I hope you'll like it here, and that you'll find a few things of interest every now and then. ;)

And then I would like to add some special thanks to the thoughtful comments I received recently, when I was feeling like poop. Thank you, my darlings, for your sweet words. They made me smile. I managed to break the fever thrice now, but the bitch is stubborn and keeps coming back. Ah well. It will pass, though.

*huggles to all of you*

I'm off to bed again.

Happy Easter to my f-list and all other viewers of my journal.
I was thinking about posting a fancy pic for you (one I didn't make myself, since that would end in the usual disaster) but I can't be bothered to look for one right now. Pray, forgive me.
My eyes are on fire, my ears are full of red-hot needles, my throat is full of rocks, my head is swimming in feces. In short, I have another fever coming in/on/under/whatever. *wallows in self-pity*
Yeah. Serves me right for being such a snarky cow, no? =P
Health and happiness and fun and joy to all of you.

The first time I watched this commercial here, I laughed till I cried. I was pregnant and in hospital, it was well past midnight, and my mind was in a fog. I think if I'd been fully awake, I wouldn't have found it half as funny.

What Type of Killer Are You? [cool pictures]

You are a Samurai.
You are full of honour and value respect. You are not really the stereotypical hero, but you do fight for good. Just in your own way. For you, it is most certainly okay to kill an evil person, if it is for justice and peace. You also don't belive in mourning all the time and think that once you've hit a bad stage in life you just have to get up again. It's pointless to concentrate on emotional pain and better to just get on with everything. You also are a down to earth type of person and think before you act. Impulsive people may annoy you somewhat.

Main weapon: Sword
Quote:"Always do the right thing. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest" -Mark Twain

What Dark Word Represents You? [anime pics]

Your word is: Hate. Your heart has been turned to black since you haven't experienced love, or maybe you felt love but got none in return. So if no one else is willing to like you, then why like them? You are now a very bitter soul, trying to find a place and perhaps someone who can co-exist with you. That can be a problem since you tend to keep away from most people and be rude, but maybe someday you will be okay again.

What Power is Compatible With You? [beautiful anime pictures + 12 detailed results]

~*~Result nr 1~*~

Your power is: Clairvoyance

Explanation: Your power is that you can look into the future and see what is coming. How far and long you can look is all depending on your skill level. This can, as all powers, be used in both evil and good. Even if it may seem like a boring ability it is a huge responsibility for the carrier, becase they are constantly tempted with doing the wrongs deeds (e.g. cheat on a test). It takes high morals to not be brought down with it.
Therefor you fit with this power quite well. You take responsibility and do what is the right thing to do. This does not make you a saint, since you're only human after all. But it makes a trustworthy person and you are loyal to camrades and/or team mates. In school you were probably a good student. If you were social varies from person to person, but most clairvoyant people tend to prefer their own company or that of close friends and family. That is because you are wise and knows how to treasure the reliable in your life, since you know popularity can be a false element. You are also not that big on taking risks and prefer what is already explored. That is because you don't like suprises, they can turn out bad and then you won't be in control.
Negative aspects: Since you're always doing the right thing and being trustworthy all the time you can become frustrated. Also, all that you carry on your shoulders may stress you out. You need to relax to be in good mental shape.
