And be nice or this guy ^ will eat you.
Okay, so maybe that was an exaggeration considering the fact that I'd never totally disappeared. Anyway, I moved into a new house a month ago and we didn't have wi-fi there until last night, which is why I haven't been active in a while. The house is awesome, I've got wild turkeys I can shoot, basketball-playing neighbors to hang out with, and an amusement park in my backyard, with rollercoasters and everything (I found a bunch of cell phones and stuff underneath a couple where people dropped them on the ride ).
Random yet important news: my chia pet is done growing. I named it Billy the Bird. It's quite hairy. I dropped him off of a balcony though, so he's starting to grow bald. Poor Billy.
I'm reading the Aeneid in school right now. The translation sucks majorly and makes a cool story totally boring. Trust me, I've read it in the original Latin, so I know that it's the translation's fault. I'm also reading Dante's La Divina Comedia in the original Italian. It's pretty good too, also butchered by horrible translations. That's on my own though, not for school.
Oh, and I totally sabotaged a famous author's Youtube video. He did a thing where people could ask questions and he would randomly draw 20 of them out of a hat to answer in a video. So I asked what the weirdest name Crayola's named a crayon color, and guess what? It got picked. Among all of the other boring questions like, "Where do you get your inspiration?" or "How much research do you put into your work?" Lame-o. What's even more lame is that his answer was black. Three-time NYT Bestseller, people, and all he could come up with was black. (That's not the first time I've been a dork and been weird for contests and stuff. I also did a Q&A contest thing with a famous guitarist and asked what their favorite super villain was [I know, dumb question, the answer was Poison by the way. I'm not sure if they were referring to Poison Ivy or Venom though.] and I won a poetry contest held by a famous author by writing a poem about why pirates wear such huge floppy hats. I won the first draft of her new book, which is totally worthless. :/)
Also having to do with writing, I just reached 30,000 words on a book I'm writing. I'm only about a third of the way through the story, though, so it's gonna be a lot longer. Meanwhile I've made a bunch of friends on wattpad from uploading chapters and my professional-editor grandma is fixing up what I have so far.
Guess what? I got all As on my report card!! Ok, not really. I got a B- in Physics. But everything else: A. Woo-hoo!
Ok, that's it I think.
P.S. Has anyone tried those new Lays chip flavors? Like, the Chicken&Waffles flavor and stuff? Ewwwww!!!
Ok, so the blog title isn't technically true. I've drawn before, but never tried to actually be good. I mostly just stuck to stick figures (>-lo or >+o or whatever) but a couple days ago my brother dared me to draw a better picture than him, so I tried. Luckily he let me choose what to draw, so me with my affinity for historical naval warfare chose an 18th century British Man-o'-war. I didn't spend that much time on it and it kind of sucks, but mine was unanimously voted the best anyway (ok, so there were only two people voting, but it sounds better to say unanimous anyway. )
Since then, I've kind of been obsessed with pencil drawing. I'll post the pictures, but they're hard to see because my scanner is broken so I used a regular webcam. I'll just put em up in order of how much time I spent on them.
You can tell I'm into drawing old-fasioned modes of transportation.
That british man o war mentioned eariler
An old biplane with a couple random dudes in it.
Some old steam train I found on the internet.
Finally, the one that took forever because of my stupid perspective-messing-uping and re-doing, some guy in battle armor riding a horse also in battle armor while trying to kill another guy with his sword (the other guy is kind of hard to see because of the crappy image quality.)
So yeah, I'm not very good yet, but I'll get there someday. Maybe we'll learn how to draw in art class once we're done with stained glass. I hope not.
Oh, about Christmas. I spent the last few days with family, it was really fun cuz I have the best family in the world. Got some presents too, I love a cute scuddie I got with little monsters on it. I'll be wearing it like, every day from now on. Also got the entire 3 disc collection set of the Mummy series (Mummy, Mummy Returns, and Scorpion King) Watched the third one for the first time today, wasn't that great a movie. :/ There was also some Pillar and Decyfer Down cds, an Ensiferum cd, and the Soul Eater s2 soundtrack. Oh and I got an awesome green tshirt with a proverb on it. I think that's it... wait, no. I got a Thousand Foot Krutch (my favorite band) poster. It's so huge though, it's gonna take up the entire wall when I put it up.
Now it's you people's turn to tell me how your Christmases are going.
One more thing (which will take a minute). Some of you know that I'm trying to write a book, but I'm only a couple hundred pages into it. I can't decide where to go with the story though, trying to decide between two options. So if you don't mind reading them both and telling me which you like best, I would really appreciate it.
So far there's a Russian who's a fugitive in America (he's the bad guy) and he just fled back to his home country and built a modern version of Tesla's Teleforce/Death Ray (google it if you're for some reason interested in the actual version of the Teleforce.) Then, of course, there's the main character who's trying to stop him (he already did once, which is why the bad guy fled to Russia).
Ok, so the options. The thing is, when the bad guy flees to Russia no one knows where he went, so I need a way to get the main character find him and get involved so he can stop him. Option 1: The bad guy tries out his new weapon and the main character notices that a large number of people have died by disintegrating and/or melting (you kind of have to know Tesla's science to understand that) and he makes the connection and goes to stop him himself. Option 2: The Russian guy wants revenge for having been stopped the first time, so he kidnaps the main character and his girlfriend, who both later escape (or maybe just one of them, depends what mood I'm in when I type it) and stop him that way.
So, please let me know what you think.
Hey I needed a new blog so I just decided to type this up. Probably not going to have anything interesting.
So, how is everybody? How was your Thanksgivings (if your American and stuffs, I guess.)?
Oh, by the way, if anyone knows what this image is supposed to be, you get a million imaginary dollars.
Sorry that was so large.
Anyway, sorry I haven't been active recently. The main reason was laptop issued. It kept breaking because some inner cord kept coming loose and it was really obnoxious. But my grandmother gave me her old one and I'm suffering through the cigarette and pasta smell to use it. It's actually pretty good quality, other than its complete inability to stream video. :/ Uh... more reasons I haven't been active lately. Right. Well, I did this thing called NaNoWriMo this year (a few other users have mentioned to me that they were participating too???) so that took up a large part of my time. It's where you gotta write a 50 k novel in the month of November. I also did cover designing for people who couldn't do it themselves, which was hit and miss ability-wise (if you're interested you can see most of them here.) Some of them suck, a few of them not so much, and some are neutral.
My birthday is tomorrow. Whoopie, 15 years old. That's gonna be fun, going to the zoo for some Christmas lights display thing. We're also going (completely unrelated to my birthday) to a concert in a week or so for one of my favorite bands, Family Force 5! I cheer inwardly whenever I think about it (!!!)
I also got a haircut for the first time in my life. My hair grows at an extremely slow pace, it's sooooo weird. But now I'm kinda funny looking with a nineties style that I sort of hate.
Let's see, what else is new? Umm... my favorite band is coming out with a remix CD tomorrow. Considering they remixed almost all of the worst songs by them imo hopefully they'll be better this time (the one I heard already is really good, especially since it has a Family Force 5 person singing in it (see above my love of that band) here's the link to the song if you're interested, most of you probably aren't into that kind of music though.)
I have a persona project coming up in school. I have to get up in front of the class all by myself and pretend to be Zeus for about five minutes. If anyone has any interesting ideas of what I should fill that time with, let me know. All I can think of is stalling by pointing to everyone one at a time and being like "I'm better than you, and you, I'm better than you, oh, I am so better than you." Then once I point to everybody I'll be like "And I can zap you all to death if I wanted to. So ha!" Unfortunately my teacher hates stuff like that and I already lost points for trying to name the essay version of this "Best Essay Ever." I guess he just doesn't understand true talent.
So did anyone get any good Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals? I forgot to go shopping. Ah well.
I was supposed to be studying for exams a couple days ago but I did this instead.
I've taken up enough of your time, c ya
