WOAH HI THERE LIVEJOURNAL

It has been one of those months that I kept meaning to update LJ but updating LJ would mean I would have to blither on about what has happened in my life, so I don't because I can't be assed to write a super long entry, which just makes it worse because it means I don't update it more and it makes the subsequent LJ entry longer.

SO WE ARE STICKING TO BULLET POINTS FOR NOW and I'm going to post more substantial posts in the future I promise.

THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO ME SINCE I LAST WAS SEEN IN THESE HERE PARTS:-

• Dyed my forever blonde bit of my hair, blue. (pic here)
• Had an awesome halloween at home with [livejournal.com profile] peypea and [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon where much candy corn and rocky horror was had
• Sold my Kingdom Hearts Keyblades for £145. Fuck YES.
• Finished an art commission for [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin that I've been trying to finish for months! Was super proud of it. (it is here)
• Got pissed off at THE DICKS AT DeviantArt, and made a Tumblr to spam with my art instead and to further increase my closet hipster status (which is here)
• Had a break down about university ONLY A MONTH IN (THAT'S A NEW RECORD!)
• Started playing Crowley from Supernatural over at Dear_mun (and I'm probably apping him at [livejournal.com profile] theposthumans)
• Got mild case of flu/really bad cold, which mixed with my anxiety made for the perfect conditions for doing university work (not really)
• Got a load of Christmas shopping done YES I AM EARLY THIS YEAR
• AQUIRED GUINEA PIGS not here, but at my parent's house. They are two boys, and my sister named hers Diego and mine is called Napoleon and is a rosette so has constant bedhead AND HE IS ADORBS (here is a picture Napoleon is the fluffy one)
• Due to cold, had lots of spare time on hands where brain would really only work with watching things. So finished three seasons of The Venture Bros. and Misfits.
• WENT TO SEE THE DOCTOR WHO CAST turn on the Cardiff Christmas lights. IT WAS FAB and fucking cold.
• Was told by my dad that I could use some of my Bermuda savings account to pay for a new laptop since mine is pretty much on its last legs, SO I COULD HAVE A MAC WITHIN THE MONTH SCREAMS.
• Had a counselling review session, and was booked for another six weeks, but I'm showing a LOT of improvement, so we know it's been helping me.
• Made apple cake from the apple tree in our flat's garden. It's fucking delicious.


AND I THINK THAT'S IT. There was some stuff I wanted to go into detail about but whatever, I don't want to be here all evening.

But auugh I am so behind with work. Thanks to procrastination and those couple of days I was really sick I've been thrown off track. I NEED TO GET BACK ON TRACK AND STOP GETTING DISTRACTED but I'm working on my grad film tumblr so I need access to internet otherwise I can't do work. And the temptation to look to see who is on AIM or check my flist IS TOO GREAT. Man I suck at this.

BUT YEAH.


SUP WITH YOU GUYS.

Your hair looks super fab. I am just sayin'. Yes, I still read your lj, I am crap at commenting

There was a point where I thought I'd lost my job because I did something stupid, but they let me "unresign" so I still have a job. Life is good.

The end.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you! I'm enjoying the change :) I STILL READ YOURS TOO and I am crap at commenting also

OH well that was good of them to let you unresign! \o/

Awwww your hair is super cute!

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE COMMISH

ALSO, MWAHAHA JOIN THE MAC CLUB

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
FF THANKS. I am enjoying it while I can, since I have to wash it out for a family picture soon 8( Not that it's really washing out very well.

NO PROBLEM. I'M GLAD YOU LIKED IT \o\ Sorry it took me so fdkjsgnking long!

I WANT TO BUT IT'S ALSO A LOT OF MONEY AND I AM NOT SURE IF I WANT TO PART WITH IT AND LOSE MY WINDOWS ONLY PROGRAMS THAT I LOVE 8( I probably will be getting a pro though.

[identity profile] lynxgriffin.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
That is okay, still looks fun! o/

IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU; EVERYONE HAS DIFFERENT COMPUTER NEEDS AND WANTS. I just likes my mac and I don't think I'll get a PC again unless I need to for software purposes. XD

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
I am mostly sold on the fact they are pretty beautiful, and a mac is generally better for artists. But, that said, Paintool Sai is a regular program of mine now, and there isn't any installation for a mac, so I'm torn. I'm hoping to have my PC still in working condition, so i can switch it over for a while since I wont have enough memory for a windows partition, but I'm pretty sure the PLUSES outweigh the AAA

[identity profile] lynxgriffin.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
They are pretty, they are useful for artist-types, and they have pretty good real-person support with little worry about viruses. (And huh, never heard of that program.)

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 11:22 am (UTC)(link)
Painttool SAI was what I did your commission on, and is generally a lot smoother with line-work than photoshop, and you can do a lot more with it like undoing more than once. It also has it's limitations too, but yeah. No viruses would be amazing, but I love that program hard. Here's hoping my PC holds out for a couple more years for that.

[identity profile] lynxgriffin.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 05:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Ooooh, I sees. :Oa If you need something mac-working that sounds similar to that, you should try Sketchbook Pro (unless you already have it.) It's what I generally use when doing the initial drawing on the comp now. The linework is smoother than in PS, you can undo lots at once, you can use ellipses and ruler tools much easier, and you can draw in symmetry, which I've found really useful in some situations. I'm sure there's a free copy of SBP floating around somewhere, but I ended up buying mine 'cause it was pretty cheap as far as drawing programs go (about $100).

I've heard of it, but I don't have it since I don't have a Mac yet xD I'm definitely going to look into getting a copy of it though, because I remember squeak using it and singing it's praises. Thanks Lynx <3

Omg your blue streak is TERRIFIC I love it. And if you're in to Rocky Horror then might I recommend a particularly fine live cast recording on Spotify with Jason Donovan (!!!) as Frank and Nicholas Parsons as the Narrator? Search for it, it's ridiculously good!

And aw aw aw your guinea pigs are adorbs /delights over them

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
THANK YOU SHAZINATOR. Oh I don't have a Spotify account :( BUT THANK YOU.

fff I KNOW RIGHT. I have yet to meet them because I haven't been home yet, but every time my sister posts a new picture of Napoleon I pre much die squeeing

[identity profile] scissorbite.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 05:36 pm (UTC)(link)
OH that is a shame! I was totally going to download Jason Donovan's Sweet Transvestite from Spotify anyway so I will post you a download link if I get around to doing so because it's FABULOUS

ahahaha and also that is a great name choice. The history geek in me is telling off the Disney geek for thinking of Napoleon from The Aristocats (MY FAVOURITE ANIMATED DOG EVER and I don't say that lightly) rather than Napoleon Bonaparte OH WELL

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
omg that icon.

OUH well I would be interested in that being thrown my way in any case! If you don't get around to it, it's no biggy!

His name is Polo for short :> and ffff yes, his name is Bonaparte because he likes EXPLORING AND TAKING OVER THINGS, and also Napoleon is a ridiculous name for a guinea pig. He was almost called Cornelius and Feliciano too, but the nickname Polo was TOO GREAT.

Wow, your hair looks so lovely! The blue is awesome. :D

AND IT IS GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN. As for me, I really need to find myself an internship since the place I wanted turned me down. That's pretty much all.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
THANKS. I'm enjoying it a lot :D


I KNOW IT'S BEEN SO LONG HATI THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Aww that sucks. I know how that feels 8( I'm sure you'll get something!

YOU'RE WELCOME. As you should. <3


NEVER WAIT SO LONG AGAIN. And I know, it just sucks I didn't get the one I really wanted but I'm sure I'll be fine.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-11-19 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
