Hallowe'enie! Passing classes! NaNoWriMo!

I found out today, much to my utmost joy, I actually AM passing Business Management!
I did the math - i had a 50, right on! five-o-n'-go! Hahaha! YES!

But then I did my lab, got perfect, and now my mark is a 52% ;D So excited, hurr. I should actually show up and do shit more often, lol!

But anyways, Hallowe'en pub is tomorrow, and I'm so excited. This was my favourite pub last year, and I'm totally looking forward to going again this year.

I'm either dressing in my Ninja costume (which I'm pretty sure you've all seen before, it's the one with the red kimono thing over top), oooor (and this one is more likely), my steampunk outfit. HURR.


This isn't the one I sewed together myself - that one is still a WIP. This is the one assembled from random articles of clothing I've been picking up at second hand stores and from around my house. I'm a little upset, though - two of my belts for this went missing. The shirt I spent hours chopping and re-sewing and dying went missing. My elbow-length lace glove(s) went missing. My fingerless black gloves went missing. the choker I hand-made went missing. I broke the thread holding up the gathers in the skirt (in the pictures I subbed in an old belt to hold it up, don't like it as much, but meh, it'll do). Various other parts were missing, too. So I'm pretty frustrated with it, it doesn't look as complete as I hoped.

But, alas, Joscelyn and Annemarie and I are all jumpin' in my Kabooki Justice tonight and motoring it off to Value Village, so we can find Annemarie a costume. I'll be picking up whatever odds and ends I can use while we're there. (btw, just in case you're behind on the times, Kabooki Justice is my car's name.)

Also, NaNoWriMo soon. Hmmm. I have a deillema here.

I can either...

1) Get started and finished on my Plant ID II final project before November (it's due at the end of Nov.) oooor
2) finish working out my plot kinks and name my characters and get my story plans all ready for NaNo.

...I don't think I'll have time for both. The reason I'm having trouble choosing is simple.
If I don't get my Plant ID II project done before november, It'll take away from precious novelling time and I will probably fail NaNoWriMo.
If I don't get my story plans done before I start, I'll get stuck in a really, really big rut (like I always do when I rush to start my not-very-well-thought-out-stories-where-my-characters-still-don't-have-names) and I won't finish.

It's really hard to decide - either way seems to lead to imminent failure of my novel, but I have this feeling that if I pick one and at least do one, I might be able to scrape by and make it through NaNoWriMo. I had to drop the story last year for Plant ID I, and I don't wanna do it again. HURR. What to do, what to do....

The baby is a girl, her name is Bridget Dawn Lammers~ I'M SO EXCITED OMG

She had the baby around... 10 I think? I got the call at about 11 that it was born, so...

I wanted to drive off right then and there and go see it, but I had to finish my weeds project (day late, but teach said he wouldn't dock anything because family comes first!), now I'm going for lunch then to go to class then to write a midterm. Then I'm skipping out on the lab-bit of Landscape Design II to go home, then to London, to see the baby!


(Oh, wait, I'm the uncle, not the aunt. I almost forgot. In that case...)

EDIT: Totally epic passed the greenhouse test... totally epic failed the Landscape Design midterm. And that's supposed to be my good class?! Ah well.

Too many things going on in my head

1. Jessie is having her baby. EXCITEMENT.
2. This project was due three hours ago, and I'm not quite done yet - giving up for tonight. EXHAUSTION.
3. Too many things to record, and they won't take long, but they still take time DX ANNOYANCE.
4. Too many tests to study for. A midterm tomorrow, two midterms on friday and a test. Too busy with projects to study. STRESSED.
5. Still haven't started my crop in greenhouse... -sigh- DEPRESSED.
6. Need to get that layout for my aunt's website done BEFORE saturday morning. Not gonna happen. WORRIED.
7. Got to sleep in today; it felt really, really, good. RESTED.
8. Too much sugar. ANXIOUS/AWAKE
10. Found some names for characters in my NaNoWriMo novel. RELIEVED.

Anyways, all in all, I'm just really messed up in the head right now, and not in my usual way. So much stress. Last night it got to the point where I had trouble breathing. I told Luke that on Skype, he made me join a voice chat to calm me down. It didn't help much, but the beer I had while joking and distracting myself really did.


In the mean time, aside from teh fact I'm going to be an aunt, my SUPER SECRET PROJECT IS GONNA BE UNDERWAY SOON, since the teaser scripting is done. Just need to finish up the casting, send teh editor teh musics, and get everyone's lines in. Gawsh I'm excited.

Combine those two things with the song I'm about to post, and you've got the only three, meagre things that have been stopping me from throwing myself out the window.

This song is Christian rock, song is "I Can't Do This" by Plumb. Gosh, she's amazing.
And the whole first verse - as soon as I heard it - just smacked me like a brick. THE WHOLE FIRST VERSE IS LIKE, MY PAST THREE WEEKS IN A NUTSHELL. HURR.

But I do like that song. ;_;

YAY! :D NaNo plans!~

Now that my school work load has lightened considerably, I'll be devoting my free time to working on my duct tape Akatsuki cloak, scripting MY SOOPER SECRET PROJECT I CAN'T TELL YOU GUYS ABOUT YET UNTIL I GET A TEASER DONE, recording auditions and lines, but most of all... plans for NaNoWriMo '09!

Man I'm excited. I took a really basic, simple, generic idea, and pimped it out. At least, that's what I think I've done with it. It probably sucks, at least, as is, it does suck. But when I get all my little plot kinks and holes and loop holes ironed out, I'm gonna have a pretty solid idea. I already have my characters pretty much all made and ready to go; might throw in a few more, one or two still need some work, but for the most part my main cast is good to go. Well, everyone still needs names... hurr... but that will come with time. ...I hope.

Regardless, I'm excited to start writing again. :3 I haven't written a real story in AGES. Probably since about last November! Hahaha. I'm such a loser. ;_;

But anywho, yes. My list of things to do this week:

- Audition for the Naruto Abridged movie thing
- Nursery project (due today!)
- NaNoWriMo plans
- More auditions for sandersthepimp (I'm already his Revy, Rem, and Chinglish...)

...Shit! Will add more to list when I'm not late for class. As in, lost track of time from blogging. Gotta go. Will edit and finish later. Bye!

4 down...

4 of 7 midterms/tests done
0 of 2 projects handed in

The rest of this week is still looking crazy, but I'm managing to survive.

It's moments as stressful as this one that I'm reminded that I STILL haven't started to script my ... series yet. (It's a surprise, you'll have to wait and see!)
Which, of course, just brings me more stress. Because I want to do it, but as it stands, I cannot. I have to wait. But I don't want to wait. And I still have to finish casting. Huuu.

Also, I need to go to bed early tonight, especially if I'm going to pub tomorrow. (That's right - no matter how stressed and anxious and frustrated I get, there's always time for dressing like a fool, drinking like a fool, acting like a fool, and feeling like a million bucks.)

But for now, I've got class. Toodles.

Busy, busy week...

2 tests down, 5 to go.
1 project handed in, indeterminable amount to go. (at LEAST one... maybe two? Pah, I don't know.)

So yeah, this week is gonna suck. I've slowed down on my voice auditions for the time being, and instead, threw together a demo reel. I forgot to throw in my Tayuya (Naruto) clips, and also forgot my White Rabbit (Alic in Wonderland (Yes, this one is spelt Alic.)) But oh well. Here's my demo reel.

If you don't think my Revy sounds like me, have fun listening to half the other shit I've been up to. XD YOU WILL BE EVEN MOAR "THAT'S NOT YOU!" ...but it is me. HURR.

So yeah. Looking, now, at how many of those are marked as "Casted", I'm actually taking great pride in this hobby. :D
I just found out now I lost out on the main character role from Bastard!, but that's okay. Obviously I wasn't casted because I wouldn't be able to do it effectively. XD Fine by me!~ i'm looking forward to the fandub, looks like an awesome cast.

But I digress; as I was saying, I like this little... talent? hobby? skill? pasttime? ...Whatever it is, I like it. I truly enjoy doing amateur voice acting. :D

Thursday, October 8, 2009



-ahem- But moving back to lowercase here, I'm seriously all rip-roarin' ready to go. I've already got a few major things out of the way, and plans to get the next few major things out of the way. It's actually... exciting. Knowing that, for once, my procrastination is being SLAIN.

Basically, what happened, is that my work load almost gave me a mental breakdown. I was so stressed - I couldn't/wouldn't sleep, I either ate too much or not at all, I couldn't stay awake in classes to save the life of me (the most frustrating thing), my cold starting coming back, I had constant headaches, etc., etc., etc..

But this week, on monday, I was like, "Today is going to be the first monday I'm NOT going to skip. I hate having to catch up." And I didn't skip ANYTHING! Neither with tuesday! I didn't sleep well on tuesday night though, so after Weed Sci on wednesday I went back to bed and just skipped Business Management's lab. Not a big deal.

But after that, I realized something; "If I've got the urge NOT to fall behind, why did I let myself fall behind in the first place?" I also realized, "Why the hell am I so concerned over keeping up when I'm doing nothing to actually keep up?!"

So, I got my ass in gear. The assignment I had due weeks ago - worth 5% of my final mark - is done. The assignment that takes 2 weeks for the seeds to dry that's DUE in two weeks is done - my seeds are drying happily in the greenhouse.

I finally mustered all the patience I could to sit in Barb's office and wait for her ot be not-busy so I could reinstate myself into Ridgetown college, and it went smooth and quick. I'm now officially a student at Ridgetown. ...Again.

Three most major things, done and gone.

Today I have some pictures and a rough landscape plan due for landscaping, but I haven't been able to get the pictures or the measurements, on account of the lawn I plan on doing for this project is all the fucking way in Wyoming. Huhn. I'll have to talk to teacher about getting it in on Monday's lecture period. Hurr.

Anyway, to spare you a lot of TL;DR details, here's my list (no particular order).

School Work
- Pictures/measurements of landscape to be landscaped (lol)
- Growing schedule for snap dragons
- Collect seeds for Nursery project
- Business plan for Marketing
- Weed pictures for final Weed Sci project (planned outing tonight)
- Reinstate/re-register self.
- Catch up on business notes
- Study for Plant ID
- Catch up on Greenhouse Management reading

- Layout for business' website

Voice acting crap
- Gundam 00 auditions (need to re-watch some)
- Haruhi Suzumiya auditions (need to actually watch first)
- Ouran auditions
- More Naruto Uncut auditions
- Naruto Shippuden Paradoxical auditions
- GoldenOtaku's Naruto auditions
- ZoidsBN's Romeo x Juliet auditions (need to actually watch first)
- Utawarerumono auditions (need to actually watch first)

I want to learn to play bass.

It's something I've been mulling over for a while now, but... I think I've come to a conclusion. I think I want to learn to play the bass guitar. I mentioned it to an electric guitar-playing friend of mine, and he said, "That's awesome. If you could learn to play this I would officially love you."

Of course, he linked me to a video, and as soon as I watched all nine glorious seconds of it, I met his challenege. No, I don't want Nicholai to fall in love with me. Because I have already fallen in love. ...With the clip he linked me to.

Here's the vid.

So, yeah - not huge on GazettE myself, but HOLY SHIT CAN REITA PLAY. I want to play like that. I want to tear out sweet bass solos like that. H'omg. So, I'm asking for a used bass guitar for christmas, and my friend Rebecca says she's gonna get me "Bass for Dummies" for christmas. XD LMAO.

But moving along, donated blood today, so I'm in an odd mood.

Moving along from that, I made an AMV the other day but forgot to tell you guys.

Here it is.

My first AMV ever. EVER. wtf.

Don't fuck with me.

Video explains it all. Please watch, I worked hard on this.

And yes, that is me voicing Revy ;D
