Goodbye, cheers, you know the rest.

Hi everybody!
I've come to the conclusion that I can't keep 3 blogs at the same time, so I'm dropping one of them.  Guess which one gets to go?
So yeah, sorry if it comes as a disappointment (well, it probably won't because I've procrastinated so much that I hardly exist, I'm sure), but I'm not going to keep this blog up.  The only reason it's going to take up space on the web is because somebody linked to me in their blog, and I don't want that to be an empty link.  Not that anyone sans me goes around looking at people's blog histories or anything...
Oh, and you'll eventually notice that my twitter account was closed.  Don't fret, I did it.  There's a good reason for it, too.  For the sake of keeping everyone's holidays merry and bright, I won't explain.
Hope that suffices.  Goodbye, the three of you that didn't just up and quit following like I'd thought you might...  And best of luck to you all.

A Cold, Three Essays and a Vlog

I'm still sick.  And I have finals tomorrow.  And three essays to write right now.  ...And I'm procrastinating.

I'm gonna start a vlog!!!  Maybe.  I'm really hopeful, though, because I might be able to convince meowspots (whose real name is NOT meowspots, but I don't really like divulging real names online because my parents don't like it and I don't like being punished by them) to do a vlog with just me and not with nockets as well...  Because if we include nockets, she'll be punished just about every time she participates.  And... then she'd leave.
She's not terribly dependable that way.

So I'm still debating who to draw, and I'm thinking maybe I could try to do a collage-montage...  haha that rhymed.
Ooh, that kind of makes me sound like a noob, doesn't it?  Or a quintessential blonde.  I'm not a blonde.  I might be a noob.
Anyway.  Drawing.  I really like following greg's blog because I like art blogs!!!  So...  Maybe that's what this should be.  Maybe eventually my scanner will stop being connected to the off-limits computer and start being connected to mine, and then I'll be able to put my artwork on here without so much hassle and fuss.

I like procrastinating, but I really should stop.

Excuses, excuses...

I am alive, I've just been sick.
Very sick.
The kind of sick that makes you stay home wrapped in a blanket with a mug of tea in your hands.  Yeeeeah.  That kind of sick.  It has something to do with the wind.
Honestly, I think I'm just allergic to moving air.  Whenever the winds come, I get sick like this.

ANYWAY.  I think I'm going to draw someone else.
NOT for fame.  Just for fun.  And I like seeing people get all happy when they know they've had a portrait done.  Of them.  I dunno who to draw, though.  Guess I'll go filter through youtube and get distracted some more...

So, that was a poor excuse for not posting lately, but it's an excuse all the same.  Hope you like excuses, because that's...  kind of what I wrote.

I think I'll be sane later in the week, and I'll post something intelligible then.

Foot-in-Mouth Disease

I think I come across as heartless or uncaring by the things I say.  I really don't mean to...  Well, most of the time.
But I guess it's something I ought to work on.
See, I found an old friend on facebook (gasp, shocking, I know), and I realized that out of the three friends he had on fb that were from our middle school, I was the only one whose profile picture was not of a dog.  So I mentioned it to him.
And then I realized that those two people were in cahoots and both of their dogs died recently, so they were putting their dogs' pictures up in rememberance.
I dunno, it felt about the same as sitting in church and saying something that I had no idea was terribly wrong until everyone turns to stare at me.  That has happened before.  But then earlier today, I watched as someone ran up the street a little strangely and I mentioned it to my mom, and then she pointed out how the woman had a mechanical leg.
Open mouth, switch feet?

Digging up the Present

I've been going over my old blog, weeding out the stuff I don't want the public to see, making public the stuff that's important, and deciding what all basically should be worth keeping. And I've discovered that up until my 'friends-only' phase, my blog had been about my current Ex. Not partially about, not even mostly about, but just around 100% completely about him.
Now, I know technically 100% is impossible, but it sure came close, and that makes me realize just how... Oh, I don't know, how lame I am, maybe? Back then, I was boring. Now, I'm still boring. Guess what, when I go off to college/university/whatever my now-diverse audience wants to call it, I'm still gonna ba *gasp* boring. And, apparently, predictable.

...I wonder if that's everyone else's perception, or just mine. Often one's view of him- or herself is obfuscated, or at least different from the perception of others, so maybe... Maybe what I see in myself really isn't what's there.

How's that for being unnecessarily deep?

Following the Times...

It's already beginning to feel like Christmas where I am...  But that's probably thanks to how little our weather changes throughout the year.  Today they've predicted rain, and having slept in, it just feels like a nice change of pace.  Something like Christmas.

But that's not what I was blogging about, or trying to.  I came to talk about...  Elections.
You know, those irritating every-four-year deals that turn even the best of friends into bloodthirsty enemies?  I'm talking about it because I'm tired of it.

It's all over the internet, almost every english-speaking country ragging it out amongst themselves about who's going to win and who should win and let's be as liberal as possible and let's beat up as many liberals as possible and why can't the US be socialist and why can't they just follow their constitution and why on earth would anyone vote for Palin and who in their right mind would want an extreme left wing in office and I am SO DOGGONE TIRED OF IT!  People, while they may not have been exactly nice to each other before, are so completely angry at everyone with differing views at election time, it drives me nuts.

You can see this in any forum, on any site, even on Twitter, for goodness' sake, and so many sites are slanted or biassed that it only makes things worse!  I can't wait for this to be over with.  I can't wait for people to stop feeling like they must debate every... single... issue.

See the Drawing? Lookit, it's there! Finally!

Well, well, well.  It's finished (finally).  Well, not finally, since it was done last thursday, but it's been scanned in finally.  Though, I hate the quality our scanner gave it, because it seems to like leaving a lot a lot a LOT of shading out, which both irks and terrifies me because I'll never get any portraits put on my computer correctly.  All right, not to worry, I have a wacom pad!!!
No, I guess it isn't the same, is it?

Alright.  No, this is not an excuse for vanity.  teehee.  It's an excuse for the excercising of my artistic abilities!!!  I actually was tutored by a portrait artist while I drew this, which was pretty darn cool.
I'm so lame, even my colorful vocabulary is dull.  >.<
Anywho, I promised I'd post this, and here it is, so now I get to email the guy (apparently) and let him know.

As you probably can't tell, I've actually been doing okay lately, work-wise.  All I have left for today is a short story and I'm home free to either paint, build the eiffel tower, or watch Pride and Prejudice again for the zillionth time.  Oh, that's right, or I'll continue throwing my room away.

My room is bleak.  I'm tossing EVERYTHING so that I can get new furniture, new paint maybe, new, well, everything.  Basically, a drawn-out switcheroo.

So anyway, this is just a quick update to let you know that I am alive.  Perhaps I should let my other blog in on this information, too.

Please keep the internet away from me... Please???

I feel like I should highlight on one of the little 'issues' mentioned in my last post.
Because I am addicted to the YouTube community (and very much a wallflower when it comes to vlogs, thanks to my mom's rules...  ahem), I do not have 'big' issues getting essays in on time...  Not even 'major' issues getting essays in on time.  I have seriously mind-boggling issues with getting essays in on time.
It does not, repeat DOES NOT, take 4 hours to write 700 words.  And yet, today I am inexplicably drawn to, well, draw.
Thanks to twitter.
No thanks to my homework.
See, to line it all up just right, I shot a glance at twitter while trying to work (sort of), saw that someone drew rohan, and was all, "oooh okay, let's procrastinate some more."  I looked.
Got inspired.
Started drawing, you guessed it, same person.  It will be posted here shortly after I'm done if it's to my liking.
But, see, I've been doing that instead of my government essay all day today.  And my essay kind of proves that.  I'm only up to about 400 words...  And I usually hit over the maximum word limit early on.  And there's my sketchbook, next to my folders, calling out my name, telling me to keep drawing, because pencils and paper are the loves of my life.
And now, to top it off, I'm blogging about being addicted to procrastinating by watching/reading YouTube vloggers' blogs, twitters, and channels.
Thank you world, I think I won some kind of award today.

Uhm...  Scratch that, I haven't posted a thing since... since... since...  since I found all of robofillet's stuff, actually.  Kept me occupied for a while.
Soooo...  I have another blog.  I mentioned that before.  And I have a friend on there, he always reads said blog (or at least makes out that he does).  That one I always post to (because of said friend), unless (of course) I'm too busy watching *cough* robofillet, littleradge, or hayley g hoover.
Consequentially, I have serious issues getting my essays in on time.
Now, with that said, I actually am in the middle of making applesauce.  Seriously.

Alrighty. I am a 17-year-old teen from the US of A, a Christian, and a homeschooled archer. My name is a difficult matter to settle, in that from the one lengthly role-play I spend much of my time participating in, I've accumulated too many false names to count. That said, I usually go by either Claidi or Shinsei, though amongst my friends on neopets (sigh, yes, it's true), I also go by Star or Raine. I'm going to have to say 'Raine' is my favourite, but Claidi is the most common.
Enough about names. What am I doing here? Well... I'm not really here to blog, since I'm already an avid livejournal user. I think I'm here to kick back and post whatever lot of random nonsensical stuff ends up in my head that I don't feel like putting on my blog. And, should I figure this site out in the next 45 minutes, I'll put up a link to said blog. It's private, though, so you'll have to request to friend me... But yeah, the blog's gone interesting ever since it went private, so by all means, say 'friend me' like good little lads and lassies y'all are.
Aaaand that's why I'm not moving to Texas anytime soon.
Moving on.
This will probably be my creative site, where I'll put random junk (like artwork, maybe videos, or some stories I've been starting, seeing that I never finish any of them...). It's all for your entertainment.
