The important part for this website is up here, heh. I don't think my return is going to happen afterall- I thought the rut might give me motivation to come back, and it would've worked, but i'm two days in and I realise I don't have time for something like this at the moment. If I get a handle on things, maybe then. But right now Casti is a low priority and I really wish he wasn't.
Another thing; if i'm friends with you on skype and i'm online, don't be afraid to talk to me because of these or the fact that i'm in year 12. I still love a lot of this community and I miss some of you. As it is I probably shouldn't be chatting online but that's not gonna stop me, because most of you seem more understanding than people do around here.
My original post here was much longer but I accidentally pressed back and it's gone, probably for the best. But now I have to go do homework and rearrange my room.
I'm 2 days into Year 12 and I cannot handle it.
How has anyone done this and survived?
I like how the lady at the seminar mentions things like how "it's not the end of the world" despite always being taught otherwise, and then talks about how the HSC has resulted in students being diagnosed with depression and anxiety, in percentages that rise every year along with rates of suicide.
And yet she then continues to turn the conversation around to the parents, because clearly they're the ones at risk and in trouble.
I want to stay home on my birthday, stay away from school and from everyone and anyone. I want to forget that it's my sister's birthday today.
I don't want to decide on my major work for art and I don't want to write 5 essays for english about 3 texts later in the year and I don't want to be told that I must never drop a subject despite how much I struggle at IPT, and then be told that the subject I want to pick up is very difficult and I probably won't be able to handle it.
I overthink everything and I think, yet again, that's what's wrong with me. But i'm also burned out; 5 years of working that doesn't matter but when older students tell you that you never listen, because the teachers and parents never mention that.
Surely some other students feel like this? But they never show it. Few agree with me. And I don't think anyone else spent the seminar biting their tongue to stop themselves from tearing up- I don't even know why that happened, but I just found the whole situation confronting and upsetting.
Granted, there have been occasions when I feel alright. I feel comfortable in art and alright in ancient. The rest of the time I feel....not sure how to describe it. Melancholy is the closest thing I suppose. And the school can honk all it wants about being 'supportive' and 'connected' but i'm not venting this shit to some teacher, ever.
Oh and it's going to be 40 degrees tomorrow!
Kinda weird that between this update and the last one was my last birthday...I need to use this blog more. TEF is a safe place for me to vent or rave or whatever- tumblr originally was too, but....adding real-life friends got rid of that. I'm not happy on another forum that i've been on for years and am starting to feel out of place and bored with it all, plus I don't talk to anyone there except for one person who doesn't seem to catch up with me much anyway. The other places I could talk about my problems or...whatever makes my day nice, well, I get concerned that no one wants to hear it and shutup.
The best part about this blog is that no one has to read or comment it, hah. I just like to put what's in my head down on paper, but that's not a good idea anymore cause...where am I gonna hide that? So I figure it's better to type it.
I'm in the last week of holidays and then I start Year 12 next Tuesday.....which is a very scary thought. I'm going to be 17 in 27 days....almost an adult. I don't have my L plates, I'm too scared to drive to even try....I still feel like a child. Well, actually, in the past two years I've felt a distinctive change and feel more like a teenager than ever. But i'm almost legally an adult and that terrifies me. I'm too...immature, ignorant, to be an adult.
I think part of being a teenager must be some instinctive reaction to your parents, to find them irritating and annoying when they weren't before. Because i'm starting to act a bit like my sister. I hope that's not true but sometimes, after I get pissed off with my mum, I think that. But there are things she does that get on my nerves and after an hour i'll be back to normal and i'll feel weird about it. I've noticed that as a child I completely believed everything she said and always took her opinions as my own....and now she hates it when I think otherwise. She can keep her values and i'll make my own.
The weirdest part about all of that is that I don't know my Dad well enough to tell if we have conflicting values. That also scares me. But maybe it's better that way?
On a less serious note, I have no idea what to do for my birthday. Originally the idea was lazer tag or paintball because that sounds like a lot of fun except either option, plus the people i'd want to invite, for 2 hours all wound up to about $200+. Aaaand that's a big no-no. I'd consider a movie night but I did those for like 5 years in a row, plus I have more people i'd invite this year than I have in a long time, which doesn't work very well in a small house like mine.
I'm pretty healthy physically, or at least I think I am. Not fit. Neeever fit. I find it funny that my new year's resolution always tends to be "I'll do exercise this year". That went well for two months. And now i'm back to being asthmatic because my special medication for it has run out aaand we're too lazy to get a doctor's appointment. I also need one of those because(oh the joys of growing up...) my uterus is murdering me more often than it needs to.
This is turning into a long rant, isn't it?
I've started watching and reading a lot more tv shows, fanfics and books. Mostly things I was into in the past after my passion for them is revived. It's nice and it gives me something to do but most days i'm bored now- and yet, aside from one person, when a real life friend offers a social outing i'm almost always tempted to turn it down. And then have to make excuses because I feel bad.
I've been thinking about starting a dream journal- maybe even attempting lucid dreaming. I'm too scared to really give it a shot because of all the things i've heard about sleep paralysis but...maybe one day. Tbh the idea of lucid dreaming has only started truely appealing to me today after I had a lovely dream last night and really want to revisit it- I rarely remembers dreams anymore, maybe once every two months at best, but last night I remember sitting somewhere warm and sunny and talking to a blonde girl who gave me butterflies every time she said something. It was really nice and very dreamy, which is a change- most of my dreams involve something exploding or something very weird happening. It might have been influenced by reading a webcomic I just started but....whether or not that's true, it was a really great dream.
And yet I can't tell anyone IRL about that dream. Or I could. But I don't want to. I'd like to revisit that dream and if I understand lucid dreaming i'd be able to influence the dream enough to understand it better.
The only other dreams I can really remember were nightmares- most of them seem pretty funny now. I had a horrible one about Elmo once, not lying. Well....they go on a scale from funny to messed up. On the other end of the scale, I had a dream a long time ago that I lived in a world that was in black-and-white, and...my dad was trying to kill me? Weird shit.
Another thing that concerns me at the moment is what I wanna do out of high school. I want to learn Spanish and get a job, during a gap year....but after that is what scares me. What am I going to do in University? I have no plans- for a while I thought maybe looking into librarianship. But like any other university course i've looked into i'm very half-hearted about it.
Oh, one last thing. I cooked pancakes today. It was very windy and normally I sleep in till like....midday but I got woken up at 10:30 when my window was slammed shut. Couldn't go back to sleep because I moved into my sister's room a few months ago and it's very, very bright in the morning....so I thought i'd get up. Suddenly felt like pancakes. Made pancakes while listening to Gorillaz at a volume that probably damaged my ears. Watched Daria. It was pretty good.
And tomorrow i'm off to a sleepover that I feel like I was guilt-tripped into because some friends don't understand that I don't like sleepovers.
Thought I may as well update this again; it's been a while.
I feel bad for going inactive since school has started but I can't really help it. I'm currently at home sick with a virus which is why I have time to type this up. I have a job too now, although it's possible I might be getting fired this week.
11 days until my 16th birthday. Going horse riding. Blah blah blah.
Not sure what you're supposed to do when you have a character that you've never properly rped, but always have mental situations for them set up in your head. And you can't draw them very well. Sigh. He was supposed to be a scary figure but has turned into something that only I liked and then threw off the playing board. Oh well.
Stupid rp characters and their stupid way of being so underwhelming to everyone but yourself.
It's been a few months since I got my new computer. It is...so amazing. I have so many games now that I couldn't play before. I've almost finished Mass Effect and I swear it's made me come the closest to crying, closer than Dragon Age or any other game i've played. ~SO AMAZING~
What else...well, i've started thinking about the future more, what job I want to do. Originally I thought programmer, but i've discovered I hate programming! And then I thought concept artist but I think that job is a bit too up-in-the-air to make me comfortable. But then I remembered an exhibition I went to as a kid, about animatronics, and.....yeah. I'm looking at the makeup/prosthetics industry at the moment. It'd be nice but it's a long shot.
I cooked for the first time on my own today! I had cravings for damper(which is pretty much just...quick bread. It's an old Australian thing) so I stopped being afraid of the oven and made some!
GETTING MY NEW COMPUTER BACK TOMORROW
I CAN'T WAIT!!!!1
TEF should run very very nicely on it. If it doesn't i'm gonna flip my shit. BUT ANYWAY. Aaaagahaghga amazing new computer on the way!
Feeling better, currently on holidays! I've finally gotten my wish of getting a new computer; it's a million times better than the one i'm currently using until I can get it back from my Dad's house. Skyrim looks awesome on it, and I can't wait to install everything else onto it. Windows 7 is WONDERFUL. So is having a 64 bit system.
I'm a bit slow roleplaying wise at the moment, not just here. On all of my forums i'm fairly certain I haven't made a new rp post in over a month...maybe a bit more recently here, I dunno. Brynhried is currently in storage, Toltecatl is supposed to have more active forest time but i'm kind of failing with that idea, and Sorrel is...sick and infected and nothing is happening with her besides that. Ehh. I have a bunch of ideas for my characters but no one to hear them out, or no one who is here with me enough to pull them through. BUGGER.
THG was pretty good. I haven't read the books in years and must remember to do so. Gonna look at seeing Titanic 3D. Maybe go horse riding, idk, that's pretty expensive. Going to the easter show in 3 days, which is a big upside; something to do! I've already wasted half of my holidays.
Oh and Gorillaz are finished. Just found out the other day. Pretty heartbreaking for me.
The rain is buggering up my schedual, and apparently it is literally going to rain for the rest of the month. What a butt.
I saw The Artist yesterday, which was pretty amazing. Turned out to be a lot more serious then I thought it would. I didn't like how there was sound suddenly in the beginning of the movie but ehh. It was really nice.
So sick of the weather, and my school work. I'm struggiling to get started.
One month later and hellooooo!
I'm feeling a lot better about my art this year. I'm also trying to experiment more, rather than focus extremely on anatomy, which i'm still buggered with.
and i'm sticking to my new year's resolution! Today I managed to jog 5 laps without stopping; when I started, I could only do 1/2 a lap without having to take a break. Definitely making good progress, and it always makes me feel better!
DO YOU LIKE MY GIFS. They are wonderful!
Happy Australia day! I'm about to go to a barbeque. I just saw Tintin; SO MUCH UNCANNY VALLEY
Added that thingamabob for fun; theres a test on this website > http://www.personaldna.com/
and it's pretty cool.
My phone accidentally fell in the toilet today. I was laughing about it for ages but I really do hope it still works after giving it the metho + rice bath treatment. Went for a run with my friend which turned into 3 hours of chatting and prank calling people from school. Tried to climb a tree which I haven't done since I was really little, ended up freaking out when I couldn't move(I was only a metre off the ground, hehe).
I feel kinda guilty for something really stupid. My mum got me skyrim for christmas after I asked for it.....but I'm not excited anymore. In fact, all I want to do is play Maplestory, a game I haven't touched in over 3 years. Of course my sister is too much of a bitch and too possessive to let me do what I want with this computer, even though she doesn't even use it anymore. She has her own stinking laptop! She thinks i'm really stupid. Of course she does.
I wish I had a job. I'd buy my own laptop- i'd fix this computer up however I could, but i'm not allowed. SO a new one will have to do.
...buuuut I don't have a job. So i'm stuck. bleh
Wooo! Updated with a code for ponies from Vee and Unplugged.
My new years resolution is going well; i'm eating less crap gradually, eating more fruit and exercising a LOT more than I used to. The best part is I kinda enjoy it, maybe not when i'm out there jogging, but when I come back home and I feel tired out....but it's good, because I know that i've actually done something to feel tired. I feel tired 90% of the day for no good reason.
I saw Happy Feet 2 the other day. It was alright, pretty much the same quality as the first one. Why did he call his son Eric? That is the wierdest name for a penguin. I basically went for the dancing and singing penguins because that's always good. And the night after that I went and saw Fleet Foxes live at the Opera House, which was really amazing too.
Buuut a bad part of this week I guess is the fact that one of my friends on another forum is blatantly ignoring me yet again. I don't know what to do anymore; maybe she doesn't know, but I feel like it's really taxing on our friendship. She didn't even notice the christmas present I drew for her.
Oh well. Atleast things are getting better here on TEF. I feel like Sorrel is a much fuller character now, Brynhried too, although Totlecatl needs some work(and activity!). I also feel I should delve into her past a bit more, see where she lies and things are wrong in her memory. Because she did that; she twisted what she remembers so that she feels better about it.
Boop yer nose.
I've had a pretty bad day today. My best friend has been pretty rude to me lately, lying to me over some really dumb stuff. My IT teacher expects me to go the this conference thing at a university even though I already said I don't really want to, mainly because the only other person going is 1 guy in my class. I found out today that he likes me, or atleast, i'm fairly certain he does. I don't like him back though....
I did beat him, and everyone else in my class, in Halo again through. 27 kills. I always
beat them haha. And they're all boys. So that made me feel a bit better.
I also decided that i'm gonna start watching Cowboy Bebop. I really don't like anime as a rule, but idk, this looks okay. But I've been feeling very up and down today- very angry when I left school, and now just...upset.
Exacly a week until my birthday! I'm going with a bunch of friends- all dressed up too- to go see Rocky Horror at a cinema. It's gonna be funnnnn.
We're doing graffiti/'street art' in my art class at the moment. I can't take it very seriously, 'cause I find it pretty difficult to understand. But for our work in class we get to make our own motif using word/s and an animal motif. I drew a red stag today, and I think it looks alright, but I couldn't figure out how to do the feet/what the hooves looked like, so I just drew stilt legs....which then turned into smokey whisps and by the end i'd added a whole lot of nature growing on his antlers and symbolism and weeeee flower power.
Would anyone like to see it?
WELL i'm in the clear now. I'm back for good. Mum got me a whole lot of nice things, including a Day of the Dead charm that is now on my door. It feels very nice to have everything organised again.
I had a much longer absense than I expected because the computer was taken to Dad's house, and I spent extra time over there, and even then I had limited time on it. When I came home for a short break...I couldn't take it with me. Thus, almost 2 weeks without a computer. It was surprizingly pleasant though. I'm sorry to say that I contemplated a lot of things....considering leaving several sites, for one. But not TEF; i've just gotten started again, and i've finally started making friends.
The rut was the first time i've had a lot of fun here. For me, it was a huge success (as for the IC results, i'm not sure. I do want another character; she's in my head as it is. I'd also like Sorrel to have another fawn. But contact has always been an issue for me and i'm not sure how to talk to certain people).
America, or atleast New York, sounds heavenly. I'd love to go there one day.
Just a heads up that...from the 1st of October to around the 7th? I probably won't be on here very much. My mum is going to America and i'm being thrown around a lot of places, mainly my Dad's house.
Other stuff....i'm going to be making a development blog soon, for the ideas in my head. It may result in a character or it may not. Just...a storage for my ideas and current interests?
I'm glad i've updated my characters. Brynhried still needs a bit of work, I need to focus on the fact that he has been raised to be quite violent but still fights it. Totlecatl isn't such a villain, and Sorrel is....getting there.
I'd kill for more rps.
Lol hi, 7 months later.
I've updated my bios and stuuuuff. Totlecatl is nice and new, not so cliche-y anymore hopefully.
I like tumblr. Who has tumblr here? Tumblr is gewd.
Also, I can't figure out how to get those tiny little music players everyone has now. Where its just a play button, not the whole mixpod shizzam?
Long time no see, whoever even reads these posts!
I'm a little tired of this. Dropping out of here, then fruitlessly reappearing for a month, then disappearing again. I love my characters but....I never do anything with them. I've stopped actually using the game, because I find it too much trouble. I don't know many people here, and I don't think i've ever finished a roleplay on here.
I do love some things about this place. And my characters make sense here. If I dragged Brynhried off to some other site...it just wouldn't work.
I wish I could do more.
MUMS BIRTHDAY TODAY. But i'm angry, a little.
My newest obsession is the band Gorillaz, yah? Soooo when I happened to see that they were playing in Sydney next month I FREAKED!!!! and went on teh interwebs to check the prices and seating and blah blah
I called Mum over all happy and '8D' faced. And all she could say was 'YOU'RE NOT GOING'.
SO MUCH FOR MY FIRST CONCERT
Atleast I got my commissions of Sorrel and Brynhried a few days ago.
Finished all my yearlie tests- got 50% on maths, don't know the results of the others.
I'm gonna tell Mum tomorrow just before she leaves for work...she's gonna be so mad!
I'm staying home tomorrow because:
I woke up this morning with a loud buzzing in my left ear. I ignored it but when I got out of bed I pretty much couldn't stand up, I was very dizzy and disoriented. I had a shower, washed my hair and tried to clean out my ears, had ear drops, etc.
I posted on a number of forums about it and the answer was all the same; I had something just like that, it was an ear infection.
Sooo I went to the doctor, and guess what? I have an ear infection. 3 tablets a day and it should be gone soon....but if I walk around too much I get extremely nauseous. Almost threw up several times today just from walking.
So yeah, staying home tomorrow, otherwise i'd be staggering my way to school.
Ooooh halloween lD
My beach party went really well...the weather cleared up just in time and it was so sunny I got sunburnt xD I have a funny stripe between where my boardshorts and rashie were.
Brynhried's bio is up....excited to start rping him!
I also finished my study today 8D
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW and that's just one of the reasons why I might disappear for 1 or 2 days....
a. I have to study for my yearlies....I should of started last week and now I realise I might not get enough in. So i've got the day off today to catch up but I still need to take the hours I spend on here and use them for study instead. This is the most likely reason.
b. I've got PARTIES. A lot of them. I have my birthday tomorrow, so i'll probably be going out for dinner or something. The day after that my friends are throwing me a little party at school before we go to a cafe for my friends late birthday party too.....then the day after that we have my offical birthday party at the beach....if it doesn't rain that is!
So yeah. I'm super stressed about exams but this birthday spree counters it!
6 DAYS 8D! So excited~
I finally finished my first TEF plot story thingo. There was more to it but it didn't actually fit with my chosen ending. So yeah.
SOMEONE needs to show him around the forest.
I'll hopefully get his bio up on the weekend, which will make the whole story very clear if it doesn't make sense. Plus his personality and all that.
GAH IRL. I've got my yearlies coming up and the English one is a week early for some stupid reason, and my Mum threw out the essay I need to look over. Aaaand that was the first essay I ever wrote, too. :/
ENOUGH IRL news. BASICALLY. Brynhried needs friends/a friend.
Counting down the days~ The beach party is a-okay, so I can't wait to take a party of friends there and dig a giant ditch in the middle of the sand. For no reason at all lp
Moved on from TF2...my obsessions pass quickly...and now my sister finally installed Mirrors Edge, so i'm playing that. It makes me feel sick all the time though, all the movement and falling and shaking, so I don't play it for long.
I've been feeling sick besides that....my legs are in a really bad state, with Spring here, or as I know it, Eczema season. I'm wearing bandages to school, which should fix it up, and it also gives me an opportunity to make up a funny excuse as to why my legs are such a mess.
I think i've got a stomach bug too, but I blaim Mirror's Edge for that. I'm also a lot more tired than usual...which is odd.
But w/e, I feel happy. I'm reading the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy and I finished the first section/160 pages in 3 hours.
16 DAYS 'TILL MY BIRTHDAY.
The wierd thing is I share my birthday with Bill Gates.
I also know a few people who are 2 days older than me, 1 day younger and 3 days younger.
My muse is sloooowly rising from the grave. I even managed to make 2 posts today on other forums. AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT!
I'm getting back in TF2 for some reason. I had a random desire to play it and it had a patch...which added on offline practice, which I always wanted. SO. WIN. I don't have to fail with my laggyness with real online people.
NOW FOR PROPER TEF NEWS. Looks like no one needs a fawn, so i'm probably going to go ahead and release this character i'm making up on Halloween. I've already picked out her TV Trope and Beserker Button and all that....I also despirately need to update my character bios. They're so ooollld and gross.
Yesterday I saw the Owls of Gahootyhoo Guardians movie...it was pretty good! Lovely CGI. But it was rather confusing too: I couldn't understand a few of the names.
Besides that, my game doesn't lag anymore lD I turned down the settings a little and it works fine now. Durrrr should of thought of that earlier.
I also have a new mini character walking around on this pictogram
. I'm trying to decide on her antlers, personality and name. I'm heavily leaning towards Venetian Carnival antlers, but the name is still up in the air along with personality.
I'm set on her not being an evil character, however. At the moment, she's just a cheeky, affectionate and perhaps silly little doe.
Back from Dads house! We went fishing twice but caught nothing....went to the Club for dinner, basically stayed home and relaxed. It was okay~
Going to my Dad's house for about 4 days! I'm leaving this afternoon and coming back on Sunday afternoon. See you all <3
Today I started lining and colouring what was going to be Sorrel's new ref....I had ideas and everything, but I can never get designs on this place just right. They're either boring or too busy, or just plain ugly. I made myself feel bad when I looked through art on here....I don't get how you all make such pretty characters! I've been moping around a bit, comparing the designs, and now i've just bluntly closed Photoshop and put the tablet away.
Sighhhh. I'll probably poke someone for a commission instead. I'm usually proud of my art but not here. Here it just makes me feel physically sick because I get so worked up, as dumb as that sounds.
School's finished for two weeks...3rd term holidays, hoorah! I'd enjoy going in the game buuut it appears I have a lag problem or something, 'cause everytime I or someone else calls or does 1 or 2 specific actions my game freezes up for about 10-30 seconds, but never any other time.
I'm also very bad at picking people out by their pictograms, so I have no idea who i'm playing with, or if they're in the rut or not. Soo I don't know how to put that into play- again, I need to use MSN or Skype more so I can actually rp. Give me your addresses people! I'd love to actually rp Sorrel for once.
HEEE-LOOOOO TEF! Long time, no see. Lifes been busy and i've been rather uninterested in my deer for the past months. Aaaah but I feel so super-special awesome today, I just had to tell you all about it.
I can see theres been/still is drama happening on here. <3 This place has so much more emotion than other roleplay sites i'm on, it's amazing. I read through pages of it and at first, I thought 'Wow....who gets worked up like this over deer? :/' but, it's amazing the effort you guys put into this place. Some things still irk me but, i'm impressed overall.
Back onto my super-special-awesome. My life is great. Perhaps boring at times, but theres nothing to push me off at the moment besides a small Metalwork worksheet to do. But who cares- i'm not doing Tec next year! Ahh, some time to relax.
I love my friends, however annoying or upsetting they can be at times. Schoolwork gives me something to do and think about however much I hate it. My parents- I don't know where i'd be without them.
My time roleplaying, considering I kicked it off early, has changed me. I can think more openly, think differently. I have more skills on the computer. I have friends on here. There is drama all the time, and of course at the moment i'm particularly annoyed and worried at the fact that I feel my old rp friends are ignoring me.
But sometimes I just forget about it all and feel happy :]
Go give someone a hug~
End my happy daisy phase for now. I'm going to look back on this and think i'm a complete idiot! But NYEH, future me.
My muse is steadily coming back! I'll try to work on the next piece of Father, but it's going to be a while before it's up, sorry for those who do read it <3 But schoolwork comes first....despite my habits....the only thing I got done today was finishing off my history book work. I still have to do a lot of maths study if I want to pass the next test(ON GRADIENTS. I HATE THEM) aaand I still haven't touched my art project.
I hate school. My friends love it because of all the social shit but i'm rather antisocial, ever since I started rping. It's not that bad though....I hate school altogether asides the fact that it's an easy way to see friends. Otherwise, i'd never be bothered to organise a day out or something. So I can thank school for that...and knowledge and skills. But thats what it's there for, right? Not to be enjoyed, in the end.
I should stop blabbering and get off the computer :u
My muse is on an all-time low, just as school starts today. Greeeeaat. Wasn't that bad afterall; I hyperventilated a bit yesterday, things didn't look to good, but hey! I didn't have to do any actual school work; I had school service! Running errands around the school...including delivering pants to a kid who'd wet his own...irejkdhgf gross. Thank god he'd moved classrooms and we didn't know how to find him.
Today was alright. People like my new haircut, and I feel more confident, which is a really good thing for me. But i'm still freaking out over my art project, and the fact that I missed everything today.
Copy pasta'd from my facebook;
ALRIGHT. Recount of Melbourne.
was the flight down there. Involved waking up at 5:something which was pretty bad. Everything was cooooooooo-l until the plane began descending and my head felt like it was going to explode. As in, someone was hammering my head open. Fun! Hearing was wierd for the entire trip 'cause of this. THE APA...RTMENT WAS PRETTY COOL. We had stairs
I like stairs.
Sooo uhh, got unpacked, then we went to this Greek restaurant called Stalactites; the building had them on the roof made of plaster. Lamb Giro was really nice.
THEN we wandered around and went into the Melbourne Museum. There was an exhibition on about the Titanic, but the current session was full so we got tickets for the next session and wandered around a bit. Dinosaurs, mind......human body, I think? I freaked out a bit in there; they had a video running showing an autopsy or w/e it's called.
The Titanic thing was awesome. Kerry would of liked it? Everyone was given a card at the beginning, and it had the details about a person who was actually on the real Titanic. Went through the story, the exhibition got significantly colder the further it went. There were plates and furniture and even a shirt from the ship. Some had pictures from where they were found on the sea floor. And at the end, you had to see if your person died or lived. I lived! So did my two sons :U I was third class
I don't remember what else happened on that day soo yeah
I think this was the day we discovered Minotaur?
Minotaur is basically the equivalent of Supanova, but a shop. And less weeaboo. DFLJHLS HNNNG it was pretty darn awesome. They had Doctor Who, Supernatural, Marvel, DC, Anime, Manga and just general nerdy stuff. Somehow they had the 2nd volume of Wolf's Rain so I gave in to my inner touch of weeaboo and bought it. MUCH LOVE.
Then came the whole reason we went to Melbourne. THE TIM BURTON EXHIBITION. The first thing shown was Edward Scissorhands stuff; they had his costume, a stag topiary(sp?) and one of his hands. 6 scissor fingers! Then was something about his chronology of films, and artwork, sketches and sculptures.
They had one of 'robot boy', which looks exacly like this:
The eyes flicker and the lid on the head opens slowly....then shuts really fast and scares the crap out of people. Certainly worked on me.
There were walls for most of/all the movies he made. There were the real puppets from Corpse Bride, Jack Skellington's heads with different expressions, figures from Vincent and Frankenweenie, the dresses of Alice, The Mad Hatter and the White Queen, The Mad Hatter's Hat, Willy Wonka's bracers, the freaky lollipop kid things from Willy Wonka, lots of Stainboy figurines
(including a house diahrama...I know I spelt that wrong :l showing blood stains all over the rug and walls of a house near a christmas tree, and some poor dead guy's feet and legs. A little kid asked his Mum what they were xD)
There was also this wierd tent with cartoon-y pastel monster drawings all lit up, and if you looked through their eyes you'd see a figurine or artwork. I didn't, 'cause there was a breeze coming through all of the eyeholes that freaked me out xD There was a big puppet of Oogie Boogie and a carousel playing eerie music. There wasn't much in the shop, so I just got a poster, although I would of bought an Emily figurine if they were in stock. I'd explain more about the exhibition but this is already really huge!
After that, we looked around the rest of the museum, which had this thing called 'Screenworld'. Stuff on photography, film, lighting tecniques, gaming and tv. There was a little screen showing all different memes which was pretty funny!
Then a Ty the Tasmanian Tiger carousel with strobe lighting:
so it looked like it wasn't moving, but the little figures were.
Then a room with a light and a smoke machine, so the light made wierd shapes like a wave, that you could walk through. Hard to explain.
THEENNN we went to a gallery? The European Masters was on exhibition or something...I have no clue how galleries work so yeah. I bought a little poster of one of the artworks.
For Dinner we went to a Chinese restaurant and yeah, ate food. GEE HMMM YOU NEVER EAT FOOD AT A RESTAUARANT. But yeah, that was nice.
We had to get out of the flat before 10:00, but left our bags in the flat so we could walk around, since the plane was at 7:30. Went back to the gallery, looked at shops, went back to Minotaur, looked at a goth shop(much to my disapproval -100) and cafes and things. I've forgotten a lot of details here, so spare me xD
The plane wasn't as bad as the one coming in for me, but it felt like my ears were being attacked by bull ants, BULL ANTS ON FIRE! That was my first plane i'd been on at night, so that was neat. And it had tv screens that worked for the first 30 minutes of the flight.
OH I ALMOST FORGOT. We went to the markets. Which was really awesome. Like, Paddy's Markets with less people and better toilets. According to someone else 'cause I haven't been there in a while. Me and Erin found lots of Chinglish toys, like DORA THE SUPERIOR, and GAOL (for you noobs, thats Jail) ANGER (for those who do not speak Chinglish, this was POWER RANGERS) and a Spiderman toy that read something like: THE BEST CHILD FOR YOUR TOY. PROVIDES INFINITE PLEASURE. Ohh and Mum was cacking herself over 'BENIGN GIRL'.
At the end of it all, I came back with a packet of giant malteasers from the Market, a Poster and some little panphlets from the Tim Burton exhibition, a poster of a painting from the European Masters and one massive ear problem thing.
SUCKS FOR EVERYONE ELSE! It was great fun~
Going to Melbourne tomorrow for 3 days! See you guys! I'll tell you all about the Tim Burton exhibition when I get back ; ]
Got my haircut yesterday...and I feel kinda better about it! I never hated my hair 100% but I was definitely unhappy about it. Now, it looks nice. My fringe is actually noticeable 'cause I got a decent hairdresser. Now I can actually brush it without pulling my scalp off from huge knots.
I've been obsessing over the Percy Jackson books for the past couple of weeks, and since the books are short and addictive, I bought #4 yesterday and finished it in a few hours. Percybeth moments = <3 Can't wait to get the final book, although i've already spoiled it for myself and googled the ending.
ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO HOW I SHOULD MAKE A FREYJA-DEER? Freyja is my mascot; she's shown in my avatar and in her actual chimera animal thingy form at the top of this blog. I'll probably make her an OOC deer, so I can just run around and not worry about SRS BUZNESS. Might go on my 2nd account.
And I swear i'm working on the next piece for Father. Sorta. /braindead.
My head....excuse me while I fall asleep on the keyboard.
The latest i've ever stayed awake for a sleepover was last night...until 5 in the morning. I got maybe 3 hours sleep. Ughmrkmdsjdh
But atleast we got through a whole bunch of movies
More DA~ Lots of fun, murdering dragons and cultists!
Going to a sleepover tonight for a Tim Burton marathon~
Same as below pretty much...played a lot of Dragon Age before my sister kicked me off. I'm going to a sleepover Tim Burton marathon in 2 days! Can't wait.
Just finished watching Space Chimps....worst movie i've seen in a long time.
Aaaand that's it for today! Updated the roleplay updates a little.
Had a long day of computer-ing....I should get off now before my head explodes but nyeeh, I fixed Steam and Dragon Age today and I played a lot of both of those. Finally, my add ons work again! Now I can see my golem guy, and I have the Blood Armour add-on. Today I killed a f*cking tough, huge dragon: one of these buggers
and I feel great about it! Hooray for elves~
But now i'm up to the really tough bit; the Gauntlet :U Hooray for characters being haunted by their dead parents.
