I've always wanted to use the word folks...it's a good word.

So as to the /great/ news...my hard drive is gone : D ... well I have a new one now hence the current use of the computer, but everything on my old hard drive is gone, it was completely shot.  Which means that I didn't only lose probably $100 worth of music (because I'm a good child and I pay for most music), but I also lost adobe photoshop and all the art that I had been working on.  The worst is probably the loss of the 300+ photographs from my trip to Yellowstone since I actually liked those...but I'm currently in the process of locating adobe photoshop, it's SOMEWHERE in my house, in various pieces (I need all of the discs + the license code thing) so..good fun.


That, ladies and gentlemen (and by that I mean the 1-4 people that will actually read this), is the reason that I won't have any art submissions any time soon.

good day : D

march!

So I'm off to Yellowstone on monday at 3:30 am - super fun - for two weeks.  Hopefully when I am back I'll have immensely exciting photographs to upload...like a bison :]  I bought a camera and it is adorable : D I had to buy one of those obnoxious tiny cameras because I can't fit a huge Nikon camera in my coat pocket...but sub-compact cameras have become so immensely adorable that I suppose they aren't so obnoxious anymore....:]
But then of course nearly the moment I come back home I am off to New York, Connecticut and western Mass to look at colleges...10 colleges/5 days xP I'm gonna die.......
As to art..I think I will be able to draw more this spring..so finally I'll have something to submit.  I just finished an independent project in collage so I may submit a photograph of the finished pieces.....

blahhh....
au revoir : D

I said before I was going to try to start a website/blog (mostly just for art) so I started one of those blogspot-blog-things...We'll see how it works, I'm not really going to mess around with the layout quite yet, it'll be more of a vacation project for March.  So...here's the link, have fun xP.

are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

blahh..I've had the nagging feeling that I need to update DA..

So I don't quite have anything complete to submit, lots of half-done drawings that will eventually be here, but at the moment nothing ;P I'm not sure when I'll get around to submitting anything, in the next month I have to 1) Study for/Take the SATs & ACTs 2) Research Colleges 3) Not fail math/french 4) Start an art portfolio for college...and after that I'm off to Yellowstone for two weeks for school.  The point of the trip is digital photography, so if I photograph anything decent I may submit it here ;D  Ugh, so until then I'm not sure how much art I will actually be able to submit, but I have a few things in mind to finish in the next few months.  One of which is to start a website/blog/whatever I can find...to practice webdesign (so if you know any good, *free* domains tell me : D).  I am also ever seeking ideas for something to draw since my imagination is quite limited at the moment..

I wanted to try this 25 things thing from :iconyil3e:'s journal, but I'm pretty sure I won't get to 25 ;D
1. I constantly talk to myself in french...though since my french skills are immensely limited, none of it really makes sense and I probably sound like a mental case
2. I'm pretty sure I've watched monty python and the holy grail way too many times this week
3. I have a life plan to trick a wealthy scottish musician guy (right now that's guy berryman, but I'm undecided) into marrying me and moving to Scotland ;D it will probably end in divorce..but I really want to go to Scotland...
4. I find rainy days are intensely awesome, it is not emo. just because I appreciate not being fried by the sun everyday : D
5. See I made it all the way to five, that's pretty interesting..
6. I had to retype the previous sentence several times because I spelled all the words wrong..

c'est super chouette

sorry for the sudden huge amount of deviations....: P

today reminded me of why j'adore the winter
x) school was cancelled x)
so that was my motivation to throw tons of old art at everyone all at one time

j'ai disparu!

except not really cause I'm still here.
I have no idea what to draw/paint/whatever ]: and I've been working on the same drawing for like three weeks.  And I started a painting of Alex Hua Tian,but then I ran out of neutral tint paint and I haven't been able to buy any ]: so it's pretty sad.
BUT...I have a scanner now :]...it's really awful, but it works : D

so anyway...francais 4H is murdering me, and now we're learning "street french", but I have the sad feeling that it's probably the equivalent of walking up to someone and saying "'sup bro" er something really odd like that.

c'est tout.

I need art ideas D:

plaide

another attempt at a deviantART account...
I was feeling quite fond of tartan patterns today hence the username plaide (which apparently is the gaelic form of plaid...you see..I learned something today)

so I created this account then realized that the computer that is connected to my scanner is dead.  Lovely.  So as to the actual submitting of art which will eventually be created...well that will just have to wait.  But it all works out well in the end because in the end it results in a new laptop pour moi.  Which is always nice, because my current laptop doesn't really have enough space for my school work and art, as well as the fact that it is kind of dying.  But my scanner probably won't be working again until august.  I dunno...I'll figure something out.
