the valiant return

SO I'm back in the UK and have been since Monday, but have otherwise been occupied by the lovely company of [livejournal.com profile] ormery for the since Tuesday and today [livejournal.com profile] countersparking has joined the ranks too. We spent the evening eating takeout, watching movies and giggling over stupid things like this, and I have to say it's good to be back with my buddies from the UK. I'll miss all my Americano ones too though (seriously, omg you guys COME MOVE TO THE UK SO WE CAN HANG OUT ;__;) and want to thank everyone I stayed with and met whilst I was out there for showing me such a great time. It means a lot to me <3

Still a little bit jetlagged and missing the heat of Bermuda--it is so cold in england right now I don't even 8(--but it's certainly nice to be back! My mother redecorated my room whilst I was gone too and I now have an ACTUAL BOOKCASE INSTEAD OF A SHELF ON CINDER BLOCKS AND A PRETTY NEW COLOUR FOR MY ROOM which actually is a light shade of Tommy green and white. I'm thinking about putting a big orange arrow made from paper over my bed because it would suit this room and would amuse me endlessly. I'm just hoping my boss doesn't decide to call me tomorrow about coming back to work, since I'm reaaally not ready to GO back. Not for what I was getting for the work I was doing. I'd rather sell all my stuff, which, so it happens, I'm planning on doing but. HRHGHN.

And now that my 'vacation' stint is over, it's time to get back to University preparations--concept and story art for my final film (I'm going to try and do a drawing/painting a day once Squeak and Maria leave up until the point of going back to Uni, if not more) and another dissertation chapter to do which means getting out all my Miyazaki books and reading them over again, which isn't a biiiig deal. But I really should start so I don't fall into the constant trap that I seem to do by putting it off till tomorrow and then when tomorrow is the deadline I end up hating myself for not following through with the work. I AM SUCH A MODEL STUDENT YOU GUYS!!!

And on top of that I've some how been put in charge in organizing all the bills and internet and stuff for the new house and I'm trying to work it out. Gonna get [livejournal.com profile] peypea help me out next week, but MAN that is one thing I miss about living in dorms already. That shit is already done. Sob.

BUT YEAH. HI ENGLAND. YOU ARE COLD AND FULL OF RESPONSIBILITIES BUT I GUESS YOU ARE OKAY TOO.

ahaha i'm also jetlagged and my parents are taking us away for the weekend to.... wait for it.....


...... Newport. ._. I'm not at all sure why they think it's such a good idea :s but they say it's a central location for places they want to go and they want to drive past our new house >>;;

I'm in that situation about uni work too ;A; I think i've got a new dissertation idea down though. Maybe. I need to email Matt and see what he says ;A; And I have lots of drawing to do ;A; I think that one of the kids at camp stole my sketch book with all my concept art in, and I am so pissed >( I had a lot of crap in it, but there were things I wanted ;A;

And you do know that I will help you with the bills and stuff, right? The minute I am back on sunday/monday I will be ready to sort this stuff out if you want me too :3

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 11:15 am (UTC)(link)
Feeling jetlagged is always the worst because you feel all zombified. :I

...but lmfao. BEST LOCATION FOR VACATIONING EVER. gdjdfmhn

What's the new idea? --and omfg YOU NEED TO BEAT THAT KID UP!!!

Yeah I know! But it's harder to do over phone unless you're sitting with us and skyping or something. We'll figure it out!

[identity profile] silverbrumby123.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I REALLY WISH I'D GIVEN INTO THE URGES AND WHACKED HER ONE!!

Yeah, I feel very zombiefied right now ;A;

I was thinking about looking into conversion from book to animated film, and why people feel the need to retell a story into a different medium and something like that XD;;

I have no idea what texts to get research from though, but I am thinking about doing How to train your dragon and Charlottes web for my book to movie examples

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 12:15 pm (UTC)(link)
LMFAO. Yeah seriously? You don't take that shit from university students and get away with it. B|

I'm not sure you can stretch that into 10,000 words. I mean, a lot of the time, the movies are modified so they suit bigger audiences, not just the fans? IDK it could be interesting. See what Matt says? As for research I have no idea where you'd find that. I'm sure there are from book to screen books but I can't think of any specific ones.

[identity profile] silverbrumby123.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 12:18 pm (UTC)(link)
well, we'll see :s I already have an online article about the making of charlottes web and it has some stuff about the author and how they worked together! The wizard of earthsea might also be a good one to look at, as there was a pretty good article about that recently too! I think if I find the right thing to look at I could stretch it into 10,00 words, but I really need to sit and plan it out and stuff.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Well if you think you can make it work then I say go for it. I'd make a essay plan and sent it to Matthew first and see what he thinks.

[identity profile] attilatehbun.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
stupid things like this

I find this unaccountably traumatizing.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)

[identity profile] attilatehbun.livejournal.com 2010-08-20 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Somehow this does not surprise me.
