Random happenings + Balloon ride!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 20, 2009, 12:38 PM

:bulletyellow: Commission Info      


I guess I should aim for a slightly less Muse themed journal today. The last one was borderline psychotic !

So in other news; I finished Uni - WOOOOOOO! Thank fuck for that! So you'll be seeing muuuuch more art and commissions from me. Life shall be meandering on for me whilst I decide what I'm gonna do. I have no set plan, I'm happy right now and thankfully employed! XD So we'll see what happens! 8D Hopefully a little travelling if I'm lucky. *3*

Time for some accounts of the random happenings in my life. Cause you obviously want to know! XD

I went on a hot air balloon flight! It was EPIC. My friend / "heteral life partener" kittykitt :lol: was 21 back in february and my present to her was this balloon ride. We had to wait until they actually started flying but it was awesome!

Say hello to the lovely English countryside! It was so much fun and the weather was uncharacteristicly glorious. Although that flame was freaking hot! I swear you had to be in the basket to realise just how hot it got. But it was still epic.

I had an entertaining time at work this afternoon too. I was updating our promotions board - something I do most weeks. If there's ever any kids around in the store they usually have a nosey and see what I'm up to, faffing about in the window. lol. Today there was a little girl who claimed her spot next to me and chattered on, eventually helping herself to some markers and joining in. I'm not that great with kids but she was an awesome little dude!

We all agreed that she was hella' better than me. I was kind of sad to have to clean it off. But at least I got a picture! lol.

Anyway I guess that's enough babbling and picture spamming :B More art coming soooooon!
Much love guys :heart:

Woohoo for freedom... Although i have bee having thoughts of returning to uni to do something new and different... I miss the madness and pressure, but only after i have finished writing my book and been told i am poo and should never write again...

Balloon rides = Awesomecore, ever thought of jumping out of a plane with a glorified binbag on your back?

Aaaaand have you seen revenge of the fallen yet?

I said to Amy as soon as we were done - sky diving next! I even perused prices :B I'm sure I will one day.

Yup, I went to see it last night. DAMN it was long! Wasn't as good as the first - naturally, but I've seen a lot worse so... XD

Huh. Thinking of going back to uni then? ;3

I got very annoyed at T2, very annoyed with the mistreatment of Arcee... but it did make me get all teary during a certain part in the forest that i won't mention for fear of spoiling it for other reading this... ahem...

I'm looking into doing the full skydiving training thing so i can teach other people how to safely jump out of a plane...

Yeah uni for me first time round was a bit of wasted time, all i learnt was that i don't like animating that much (I probably would have loved it given better tutors) So i don't know what I would do, but it would be something varied and interesting... even though part of me wants to do a masters in digital media... I still love the arts even though they no longer seem to love me that much.

Congratulations on finishing Uni - did you get the grade you wanted? Was it a Degree?
Take some time to figure out what you want to do - I only got a clue as to what I wanted at 34 years old and I look after my young daughter now so have no time to do any art!!! She is great though.

Thank you. I don't know my grade yet, It was a foundation degree.

I'm glad she's great! and yes, I'll be taking my time ;3

Foundation eh? I thought, going by your art, it was degree level. Sure to get a distinction..

So are you perhaps destined for the illustration route or are you going to become a director like Hayao Miyazaki and do an english version of Spirited away...:-) or work on computer games like Ico ? yeah yeah :clap: Sorry, got a bit carried away there..
