We got Lost...

I just realized that we can upload videos on here... Daniel and I need to do video blogs more often, I think we're interesting anyway.

And yeah I know this is a youtube video but I'm going to get my own camera soon so prepare for video madness!


String me up and call me Sally!

I'm listening to: S.O.S.- Jonas Brothers

I got my third hole re-pierced today, they closed up sometime last summer and I missed them so yup they're back. I still want to get a tattoo. I think my first will be my evasion skill from wow. Dorky but I want it on the bottom of my heel. Here's what it looks like in case anyone wants to see.


Other than that not much went on today, Michael's friend Brian is going to help me take my moped to get fixed tomorrow morning so hopefully that won't be too big of a deal.

I took a picture. It's not a good one though.

So yup enjoy.

Pennies? In my pocket?

Feed the hampster, spin the wheel!

I'm listening to: Vanessa Carlton- White Houses

I'm currently making it a goal to be reading one book and working on one drawing or painting, or story even, at all times. I think it's a good goal cause it'll be an easy one to keep up with as I never said I'll have to be done with it at any particular time. Something else I thought might be good to get my creative juices going would be to have someone else give me some words... anything really you know like you'd do in classes for starting a story or something. For instance you'd say something like, 'a man holding something' or 'an unusual dinner' or whatever. So yeah, leave me comments with something!

Life in a bag.

This is the blog.

I'm listening to: The Last Goodnight- Pictures of You

Stuff's going okay lately. Job's moving along smoothly, I'm in debt still but I'm working on that... slowly but surely I'm going to make this work. Starting this next paycheck I'm just going to have to write down EVERYTHING I buy and keep to my budget.

I will make this work.

Determined like the dead.

Living with me!

I'm listening to: 2BA Master- Double Trouble
team rocket

Daniel asked me to draw him a picture of himself as a pokemon trainer... it's kinda going slow. I'm not sure how to make it look like him and not just some random anime kid cause I want to keep to the original pokemon style not my own. I drew a few thumbnails and a full sized sketch but I'm not sure if I like it now. I guess I'll just keep going with it and then if I hate it I'll just go with another one of my ideas. I'll upload pictures when I get my scanner back from Michael. Speaking of I need to redownload photoshop... I'll get on that soon.

I've started getting some of the stuff that I wanted for my apartment! *joy!* Best part is all of it was on sale and everyone knows how much I love sales. <3

Anyway.. that was pretty much all I wanted to say. That and I've updated my wish list if anyone is still keeping up with that.

Time? My clock is broken...

More than meets the eye!

I'm listening to: Gym Class Heros- Clothes Off!

Okay so I've got mobot working now! Yays! Um.. that was pretty much it. I want to upload pics. I need a new camera cord. =/ I'll do that tomorrow.

EDIT- I got a cord today so here are the pics.
me and mobotmobot

Rolling out!

But the goblins are magic!

I'm listening to: Aly & AJ- Potential Breakup Song

The surprise party for Michael went pretty well, I managed to keep it a secret till the end which if anyone who knows me is reading this knows was REALLY hard for me. Anyway we had a pretty good sized group together and other than the bill being ridiculously expensive everything was right on track.

The rest of this week is going to be complete torture for me, till Friday anyway, then I get two nice fat checks. I found out I'll be moving into my apartment right before my birthday, unless the people who put an offer on our house change their mind that is. Either way I'm starting to save up so I'll have a few months rent stored away.

Hopefully I'll still have enough for my plane ticket, I still REALLY want to go to Germany. I guess that's just another thing to put away for. I guess I should learn some German...

Planning like a partridge.


So I was feeling poetic...

I wrote this on August 2, 2007 but I had no internet access so here it goes.

I'm listening to: Placebo- Sleeping with Ghosts

I got to fly first class for the first time today. It was kind of interesting sitting back in that huge plush chair with all the business men wondering why I was there. I felt very conspicuous there in my hoodie and jeans watching all the other passengers file past me to the back of the plane. I halfway think they may have made a mistake on my ticket but I didn't say anything and neither did they. And now after close to seven hours of travel and waiting I'm driving through the hills of Kansas, the rain is lightly spraying our windows ignoring the sun that's shinning so brightly behind me. I've already met up with some of my relatives though to be honest I only remember one of their names, our drive is silent though not uncomfortable. I'm quite content to sit in the back seat with my laptop typing out my thoughts and listening to my music but finally arriving at our destination wouldn't be unwelcome either. I'm feeling deep, slightly sad, content and glad for my friends and relationships.

I love traveling, the very act of it instills some sort of purpose to my life. When I'm traversing through cities, states, countries that I have never seen and have never seen me I feel more alive, different and filled with the idea that I can be whomever I want for the time that I'm there. Sometimes I pretend to be an obscure celebrity of some sort, someone who's working their way up, married, foreign, a novelist, animator. Whatever takes my fancy at the time. Not that I ever tell anyone anything different than what I am. It's a sort of internal acting that I take up, an attitude I try to project, a look maybe, nothing more.

But apart from that all is well, it hasn't been a hard day and we'll soon be with the rest of my family and I can rest and get a good meal in. What I'm more excited about than the reunion is actually going home, I have my reasons. I do think that the weekend will be good though hopefully I'll have more stories to tell about it.

What's a Lumox? I'll be one I guess.
