three weeks into school and i've basically been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. have a first solid draft done for my sr. film, gotten back into the grove of the film store, have another interview for barnes and noble in the morning, have a meeting for 'serious fest' tonight, which is always good times, and i'm now officially a member of the conduct board.

had my first appeals meeting today, and where i'm not really allowed to say anything, i will say that doing the right thing has never sucked so bad.

Real life has been... interesting lately. Interesting in that not fun don't really want to talk about it kind of way. Crummy few weeks, and not just for me (I'm looking at you Becka) and just when I was getting really down I get this from my sister Val -

click for crackCollapse )
best gift ever. makes life better, knowing I've completely corrupted my sister with Harry Potter (should have listened to me years ago on that one Val). I've got to convince her to start putting hp art for people to see (coughcoughhintcough)

I have no clue what to say about the current LJ going ons, but feel as though they are worth mentioning. I'm going to wait the whole thing out for a few more weeks and see what, if anything happens next before even attempting to weigh in on everything and/or move.

So, I finished reading on Saturday, but I'm still sorting through how I feel about DH. I want to sort out all my thoughts properly before I go into them, but in the meantime, I have a happy spoiler-y thing Becka-Becka sent to me.

spoiler under here, so val, you stay away till you are done!Collapse )

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.)

Reasons I still love Buffalo NY #152

Last October there was that GIANT snowstorm that killed just about everything. People are still cleaning up tree branches. Now, some 9 odd months later, Buffalo area hospitals are in the midst of a minor baby boom. Nurses have even taken to sending little trees home with the families to plant so they remember where their baby came from. Kudos, Buffalo, for getting your freak on.

Not having classes today was probably the best thing ever. Not that my Tuesday class isn’t interesting (well, the subject matter, not the teacher) but it gave me some good harass the internet time.

A few days back we had a snow day, which for some reason made me want to color things. I didn’t have a coloring book (yes I have crayons ready to go at any time and I’m not ashamed of it) and that got me a little down. Instead I pulled out some old sketchbooks looking for things to color. It was then I realized just how often I doodle Percy and Oliver while in class.
I guess it explains some of the weird looks I get from the people sitting around me. So here are a few of my favorite drawn in class p/o sketches. (one or two not really work safe)

doodles!Collapse )

I really should be spending more time working on my jr. production. I’m actually getting a bit freaked out about finishing on time. I’ve only got a few months left and am not nearly as far along as I should be. I’ve drawn a bit of it already and done a little scanning and timing, but that just has me more nervous. So far I have the basics done out of what I’m thinking is a 5-6 minute film.

So under the happy cut is the 30 seconds I’ve timed out. It is a little weird because of compression, but if you have the time I would love it if you guys could tell me if notice anything funky in the movement, I’m really feeling like I need outside opinions. I know what it looks like in my head, so of course I always miss the little things.

show!Collapse )

I’ve been having all sorts of weird fandom related dreams lately, but that’s something I should save for another post. This one is plenty long enough already.
