   Brace for Impact
Still following the weather reports, I was still curious about the effect this Hurricane will have before touching down on the Texas/Louisiana border. Apparently, the storm itself had shifted eastward sooner than expected. My biggest concern, however, was for the remaining Galveston residents, including the mayor, who either chose to remain in town or were forced to ride out the storm. Even when Rita starts to lose steam, she would still be at a category-4. I could only hope for the best.

I called my mother to see if she was okay since I haven't received a call regarding my pop's condition. When she did tell me about it, it probably came to no surprise. He is still brain dead and nothing has change. Now it appears that members of his family will have to make a decision that will eventually determine the outcome of his condition. I wanted to call my sister from then on; my mother said she was under more than her fair share of turbulent stress. The story of my life...

I probably won't be available until Monday or Tuesday regarding on how the weekend plays out. Although the county where I live in won't be permenately affected by Rita, I'm still keeping my eyes open. I pray for the most sheer luck ever given. Signing off!

   Rita wears in her ugly head, it's not even funny.
In fact, it sounds treacherous when you really think about it. Of course, living in the middle of Texas, the matter has been taken very seriously. I honestly don't blame the Texas Governor to call for mandatory evacuation of Galveston, along w/ southern parts of Houston and Corpis Christi; Any region of the Gulf Coast would react in a cautious manner ever since Katrina ravished Louisiana and Mississippi into shambles.

The news reports about the hurricane varied as the days went by. At first, it was believed that Rita was at a category-5 rating last night, and it was due westward directly into Galveston. Today, I heard that that it was down to a category-4 passing through the region that crosses between Texas and Louisiana. Thankfully, the evacuation of Galveston was immediately underway two days ago considering that it was effective by a no name hurricane in 1900.

Note: If it is a little too much to go after, then I suggest that you rest before continue reading.

The city that I am in now, Waco is the name, is set to feel the effects of the upcoming hurricane. I wasn't taking my eyes off the reports ever since the news came out. I need to be prepared for anything; in fact, make it everyone in the central part of Texas. This is a serious matter that I am not taken lightly. I'm planning on stocking in whatever I can in case the power goes off. Yet again, you'll never know.

I'll keep you posted on how the situation is going tomorrow. Signing off.

   Clearing up
My sinus had almost cleared up by the time the day started, so yes, I am doing okay. I've been busy for quite awhile focusing on certain assignments. Previously, I was in the library drafting several journal essays for the Humanities course that I had assigned for. It is the least stressful course I have to tread over because I feel that I could gain plenty of knowledge from that particular course.

I haven't talked about this last week, but this past Wedensday, I received a call from back home that apparently was not good news. My mother, who was close to breaking down when she called, told me that my sister's father (supposively my father as well) had suffered a stroke and was pronounced as brain dead. The tone of my mother's voice alone alarmed me.

I remember having missed emotions about the news as she explained what was going on. I felt concerned about the man's health and yes, he is in my prayers. On the other hand, I felt quite numb about it because I grew up my whole life assuming that I didn't have a father. Of course, this man was like a father to my sister and I at least for a time being, but I never saw in his eyes a connection between us. I saw him more as a visitor who occasionally babysits the kids within the neighborhood, never as my actual father. I didn't react in a gloomy manner to the point of breaking down, just mixed emotions. I was more concerned about my sister, generally because the man was more of a father to her than myself, at least. I don't know if there is really an connection between us. Even if there was, if he were to die today, I wouldn't have been able to say my peace w/ him. That is the only thing I'm concerned about.

Well, that is about it.I'll see you guys later.

I felt ill yesterday because my sinus came up again. I hate it when this happens. Just when I am working on certain assignments, the sinus have to come intervene w/ my plans. It is starting to clear up a bit, but I'll have to rest up before I do anything else. I tried to sleep last night, only to wake up four hours later. That is how much it was bothering me.

I'm planning on drawing for quite some time after 3D modeling so that I could get this sinus out of my head, or maybe perhaps I should take a rest. I don't know. Decisions.

   New theme, paisanos!
Last week, I've mentioned that I wanted to have a different theme this time around, so I decided to have a FLCL theme. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it. On the other hand, I wish to do more to improve the look of the site, so that it could stand out from the rest. I like it the way it is, though.

Yesterday, I was busy laying out a character that I had sketched before scanning in Flash. Basicially, it is a methodical procedure that requires sheer disassembling and reassembling (relax, this is not ER, folks). I took the character piece by piece by drawing each part in separate layers. In this way, the character is able to have mobility once the figures are converted to symbols. I enjoy it.

And that is where we stand, folks. Enjoy the new theme!

   Quick notice

I wish to give notice to everyone about the current situation w/ the victims of Hurricane Katrina. It has been two long weeks of desolation and hardship for these individuals who had lost everything that they owned, so I wish to give my consideration and admiration for them. They are all in my prayers.

Maybe I should've posted this yesterday when I was at the recreational center, but this past weekend, I felt in my heart to distribute a few past items of clothing and a pair of shoes, which are basically items that either I no longer needed or just didn't want hanging around. The recreational center was considering delivering goods to the sheltered victims of Katrina, so it was a very appropiate time. I also give a few canned goods for delivery. Probably wasn't much, but I wanted to give as much as I could as long as I contributed, and that is what is important to me.

I feel that Katrina was not only a reminder of how much life is taken for granted, but it has also taught me the true nature of humanity. Furthermore, not that I am pointing the finger at anyone, but I feel that the storm might've also united many individuals in the U.S. despite the exposure of the vunerability of our government. I didn't have money to give away, but at least I can say, "I've contributed." It is always important to give back and never lose touch of my background, but most of all, this past chain of event remind me to appreciate the people closest to me even more. I wish to call my mother and tell how much I love her yet I don't have the words to explain how I do. I'll find a way, though, no matter how long it takes.

Big shout-outs to YokoBandit and inuyasha311 for the creation of the banner, and huge props for Yoko for spreading the word. Thank you all very much! Signing off.

Here is yet another web comic, and this time, it becomes even more outrageous.



Edit: A little slip-up w/ the code yesterday. I had to leave the computer a little earlier than attended. My apologies.

   Why does this look like I'm petrified?
Probably my 3-D modeling course. The instructor for the course isn't cutting his students, including moi, any slack, not that I was expecting any. It frustrated me throughout the first week, and I feared it was bound to be worse the following week. The course discourages to the point I'd actually emailed a message to the instructor commenting on how I viewed my progress. It is a difficult course as I expected it to be, maybe twice as difficult, but I'll just have to pull through it in the long haul and not think about it as much. *phew* Got that out of the way.

   Possible new theme
The Excel theme was great throughout the summer, although I was actually about to change the theme mid-summer. I don't know if I want to let it go right now, but yet again, I am looking forward to create the new theme for my account. I am shooting for a FLCL theme since it is one of the most hilarious animes/mangas ever. However, I wish to keep the recent theme for at least one more week before changing my account. I shall keep you guys posted in the meantime.

Note: I failed to remind you guys Friday, but I had a new piece of fan art submitted already. If you have the time, it will be nice to check it out.

   Dragging the weight
Some vision in the mirror tells me that this is one college semester that I had to fight in order to receive any credit. It is not the amount of assignments offered by each course, just how those courses operate and the matter of their purposes are all the qualities that is bound to kill me (not literally). I'll just take it one at a time, and besides, I needed to start practicing on my planning manual, anyway.

I just begun to plan out my days and what I wish to do on the specific days. Therefore, I won't have to worry about losing track in any course assignment. Here is another plus, it offers a definite breather or two.

Well, that is where we stand at this time, folks!
