Funny, finding myself back on the internet just as most of my f-list leaves.
Real life has been less than kind to me and mine lately, but eh, I’m not the only one, and I don’t have the worst of it, so who am I to complain, right?
Spent the last few weeks beefing up my portfolio and diving into a massive amount of research for my senior film, yay pre-production. It has taken way a lot of internet time I was hoping to gain back after last semester. But I figure, if I want to do something I gotta throw everything I have into it, even if it means I only update this thing once every hundred years or so.
Other than my massive writers block I’m super excited to get started, I’m even learning some new animation programs. By this time next year I’ll have my own hand made Saturday morning cartoon! I swear I’m not an eight year old.
but all and all I my life isn’t all that exciting, I wish I had a new story to tell once and a while, but it seems I’ve become more suited to collecting the stories of others than having my own. I really need to go out and have some crazy adventure. Instead recently I’ve been catching up on my Harry Potter. I’ve read through to HBP, going to finish sometime early tomorrow. It is one tradition I’m going to miss.
It’s really almost surreal, that 7 is coming in the blink of an eye. It’s gotten me thinking a lot about what HP and its fandom really mean to me.( Lengthy ramblings about Harry, fandom and the last 7 years of my life (no spoilers)Collapse )
Thanks for humoring me! Now for the few people still online I have some pre-book excitement doodles to share. I don't think I spent more than 15 minutes on any of these, but enjoy?( HP doodles (still no spoilers/image heavy)Collapse )
I would like to echo the sentiments of many others, giving a thank you to fandom because you are always there when I feel like I'm going mad, when I desperately need a smile, or even just when I'm bored between classes. Fandom, I love you, you all mean the world to me.
(ah! between the time I started uploading stuff and now there has been all sorts of posts about the recent LJ going ons that have started to pop up. I'm not sure what is going to happen, especially with so many people away from their journals avoiding spoilers and the likes, but I guess I'm off to set up GJ and JF accounts just in case. oh internet drama, it has been too long.)
