Must be time for the fraternity/sorority rushes again...
Because I just heard the prep squad (aka cheerleaders... I'm sorry if I offend anyone, but I was a cheerleader once, and I know how they act firsthand... let's just say I'm glad I got out when I did) and a guy doing a bad imitation of a bark... I swear he sounded like a monkey. And I've gone to the zoo enough times to know what a monkey sounds like. Hell, there are days I think I live in a zoo... but that's mostly my brother's fault.
So... got my biology test back... and I made an 83.75%!!! Go me! Couple that with the fact that I updated the comic today, and I'm doing good so far.
Seriously, I think I need to change my updation schedual to Mondays instead of Saturday or Sunday. I seem to be updating on Mondays more often... granted two weeks in a row isn't exactly often, but it's the beginning of a trend. But there is faster internet here, and that's always good.
Updated my drawings in my photobucket to included the mermaid filler and the Sunny in Gothic Lolita clothing from the comic, and the Tinkerbell of Death that my mom commissioned. Actually, I colored that last night, and mom decided to color it herself because she didn't like my coloring job. Said I should have made the pleats in the skirt a darker red, then didn't like it when I told her if I made them any darker, they would have been black. If they hadn't been black, then they would have been so dark they would have blended, and she would have looked like she was in a black blob, instead of what she is wearing. So Mom's going to color her version herself.
Okay, people, I have a question. This is for my speech I have to give in two weeks over the anime culture. So here goes:
1) What do you think is the best part about the growth of the anime culture? Is it the people you can meet? Or the entertainment value? Or is it something else?
If you can answer this, I would really appriciate it! Thanks! Ja ne, minna-san! Solaris out!

Convention details ironed out
-Where I'm staying (At my mom's boyfriend's house)
-Who I'm going as (Sakura from Naruto one day, Yohji from Weiss another)
Details not ironed out:
-Costume (need to get the fabric, the wig, and the headband)
-If my friend is going with me
Okay. There are the plans and fun stuff. I'm registered and I know some of the details... like we don't have a skit, but we are cosplaying. And I don't have to crossdress, if I don't want to. Fun stuff.
Updation on the comic tomorrow or Monday. I've decided to start toning mainly with the computer. Saves a little trouble. So please be patient!
That's all I have to say. Ja, minna-san! Solaris out!

I didn't get my skittle high, but maybe today, huh? As it was, I was bouncing off the walls. I got Gravitation EX (good book, can't wait for volume two!) and to make everything better, Loveless 4 and Gorgeous Carat 4 are out too! Now, GC, that's the last of the series, and I still need to get volume three, but I can wait a bit on that.
Next, go check out the newest post about the Anime Tour for the Cure scam. In case you haven't been keeping up with it, so far Adam has endured uncooperative con organizers, a company (Anime FF) that has has completely vanished from the face of the internet, e-mails that bounce right back, and not being able to get the company to pony up the prizes for the art contest, among other things. The newest ordeal: a pre-Valentine's day voicemail basically saying 'you are so sued'.
Why do people do these things? All it does is make you look immature and foolish, and it's not honorable... yes, until this is over, I will be a veritable fount of the Bushido code of honor. These people (the AnimeFF folks) should accept responsiblility and do what they promised. But there is something definitely worth a watch in the newest post (the one about the "Valnetine message"). I swear, I watched it before oral communications, and I think I may find the link to that, and send it to my boyfriend.
Well, nothing else I can say. Laters, minna-san. Solaris out!

Okay, people, I need skittles...
There is a reason for the crazy subject line. I actually do need some skittles; I feel the need to be HYPER!
What it is, is that if I get my hands on skittles, I am pretty sure to eat the whole bag... except for the tropical flavor because some of those are just kinda grody... but I like the sour skittles and the smoothie mix! ^_____^ But the point of this is that if I get my hands on a bag of skittles, I'm most likely going to eat them all, and the rush of sugar gets me hyper and I get to writing then. Seriously! I did that with a comic once, and it turned out okay. Only problem is that I scare people when I'm on what one of my friends calls 'skittle high'.
Skittles: my anti-drug. Because crack doesn't help you write anything halfway sensible... or legible.
So... yeah. Thank god tomorrow's Friday, I'm ready for the weekend. And! Today I get to go to the mall! And if they have Gravitation EX out at Barnes and Noble's I'm gonna get that! ^____^ Yay for sequels! Ooh, but I have to make sure I have enough money to get Loveless 3 when it comes out... and still get the fabric for the cosplay I want to do for convention... but that's not for a while, so I'm gonna be all right.
...I really need some skittles.
Ja ne, minna-san. Solaris out!

Happy Valentines Day!
Just wanted to update and wish everyone a happy Valentine's day!... or single's awareness day, or anti-valentine day, or whatever you so choose to celebrate. And now for some announcements:
I've decided to extend the contest for another week. I've had a lot of drama to deal with lately and I just don't think the time has been any better for anyone else. So here's what I'm going to do: New deadline- February 21st. Exatly one week from today. Contest ends at 11:59 PM that night, all submissions for banner design must be in by then. Please, send in descriptions, sketches, whatever floats your boat! Just remember no hentai. I absolutely refuse to draw that, especially considering that isn't what this is all about.
Next, I may be able to post a valentine's day special soon. Just a one page comic, about four panels, and I got the idea in Philosophy, of all places! --' I have mental issues, obviously. And I'd love to hear what people would like to see as future fillers. As demonstrated by the mermaids, I'm still playing around with styles and such on paintshop. Fillers are a good way to practice on that.
Okay, last harp about the comic. Anyone understand HTML? Well enough to help me create a character page? See, this comic has about 14 to 16 people already... and that's with just eight chapters scripted. Normally you don't see that many people in my work, and it's got to be confusing. So, anyone who can help me out here... well, I can't pay you, POOR college student. But I can credit you on the page. ^_^' Small help, I know. But I'm really going to start advertising this thing soon. Comicgenesis, maybe? Blurb in e-mail signatures? Something... anyway, I still think word of mouth, or in this case, computer, is the best advertisment one can get, and it's free for the most part, which really helps me out. I actually had to get my mom to pay my convention registration fee...
Oh! That's a point I need to make. I'm going to be at MidSouth Con this year. Yes, I realize that it's mostly sci-fi, but consider that I can't drive, have little money, and am a member of my college's anime club, and it all seems so reasonable. So, anyone else going? ^_^ I'll be able to get back to you later on who I'm cosplaying as, it just depends on when I get an answer of who they still need for their Naruto skit they were planning... I actually think I could go as a decent Tenten... Just have to straighten/darken my hair and that's pretty well it. But I'm pretty sure I'm going as that one day, and if my friend Noura gets to go, we were going to do a Weiss cosplay one day. A little crimp to my Cagalli wig and I could do a decent Yohji... And she's a major Aya fan, so she wanted to go as him. So, yeah. ^_^ Can you tell I'm excited over my first con?
So, hope everyone has a great day. Ja ne, minna-san! Solaris out!

Not even noon and Murphy's law is really kicking in...
So, I had a test in Biology today. First test in there, there's bound to be some problems, right? Well, they were there.
The test form I had was missing a page. So I had to wait to get that so I could finish. I had the whole damn first page answered before I noticed it, and by the time the people with the same test form as me got the page, I had already gotten to question 67 of an 85-question test. But then I read fast and write/bubble in the stupid answers faster. So, I got out of there pretty fast, and I think I did good. We'll see in a few days. Plus I have to do the take home test for Oral Comm. and I really should get on my second biology in the news report... I'll get that article on Wednesday, and type it Thursday... and then I can't forget to outline my paper for Composition II tonight... ugh... and on top of all this I still have to find time to update and play around on photoshop so I can finish the filler pic... and I really wanted to update today, I still have to erase the penciled words from the bubbles and everything... damn... I need an assistant... Ah well, I just have to adjust to this. No big.
So... comic... yeah... I got an apology page done, and ready to upload, then I have to finish up the two pages I meant to update Saturday and couldn't because I had company...
Oh, yeah, more news. I now have a MySpace account. Nothing special at the moment, but it's for the comic mostly. That will be where you will find more news on update scheduals and potential crap that could and probably will happen (most of it bad, since ol' Murphy seems to have a strange fondness for my suffering in particular... CURSE YOU MURPHY!!!). This will still be an authority, since I'm sort of reluctant to switch to MySpace entirely, but I hope I can gradually wean myself away from complaining/crowing about my comic here. It's not helping anyone's mental health. And you can find me there under Sakura Haruhana.
Okay... nothing else to say. Going to check on fanfictions and maybe beat my brains out over cl101. In case you wonder, I'm still looking for banner ideas. The contest ends on the 14th of this month... THAT'S WEDNESDAY, in case you don't know. Though if you have a significant other, I would hope to hell you remember. ><* So far I have two ideas, both from my significant other, so if you got an idea, ya may wanna get it in... SOON! Send ideas my way through PM here if you wanna, or e-mail me at lunarepilogue at yahoo.com. Arigatou, minna-san! Laters! Solaris out!

Well, thanks to some drama at the library, everyone was pretty well evicted, so I just moved to the student union to type this before I have to go to class. About thirty minutes until class starts, but I have to be out of here a little early if I want to get my usual seat. So, anyway...
It's cold here, and it snowed a little this morning, but it didn't stick. Feels like it ought to snow some more though. I'm not praying for it to snow or not to. Gotta wonder how to put that a little easier... Ah well.
So, yeah, the drama at the library... I was lucky it didn't cut off a download I was working on (speaking of, I have to get my unit two notes for biology downloaded while I'm here. May as well...), and I dunno what happened, just that all of the sudden the damn alarms started blaring and we were all being told to get out. Whatever. I'll find out the details some other time.
Anyone seen 'Little Miss Sunshine' yet? That movie is so wrong on so many levels... but still funny. Ooh, I have to get the take home test on that from Oral communications too. See? Isn't this useful? Better than a planner, I would never look at that. But... yeah, we finished that movie today. So wrong but definitly worth a watch. And believe me, if I pay attention to live action American cinema for a change, you know it has something.
Okay, last thing and then I'm gone for the day. Thanks to the people who commented. I just got a chance to check them today, and it really makes me feel much better. Now the only thing I have to do is update on the situation. About lunchtime that day, I got another text from him, saying he should thank me because he only cared about P--- and L---, another old friend. Well, mom, being sick of the text battle, took my phone, and texted him back saying "if that's the case, then why don't you leave her alone?" and signed her name. Took her five minutes to type two lines of text, but that's not the issue. Five minutes later, he texts her back saying "who is this? If you tell me who you are, I'll delete her number from my phone and never contact her again". Well, I don't see what it matters, but mom had me text back "this is her mom". I mean, really! What business of his is it who is telling him to leave me alone? It really shouldn't matter, he should just let me be, anyway! Plus, my old neighbor (next door from the house I moved from, I mean), well, her nephew manages the Hastings in my town, so if he kept harassing us, we could go to them and explain the situation. Mom actually said if he kept torturing me she would. So now I'm free of one ex-aniki, and I only have to warn Noura about what's going on. I have to call her soon anyway to see if she's going to go to the convention with me.
So, that's all I know right now, besides the fact that it's Friday and I'm ready for the weekend! Ja ne, minna-san! Have a lovely weekend (yanno, just in case I don't get online this weekend)! Solaris out!

Guys, I dunno what to do...
Anyone remember the post from a few weeks ago? The one about the fight I had with my ex-aniki? Well, it's been a glorious few weeks, some ups some downs but mostly ups since he hasn't been talking to me. Then, about 8:05 this morning, I got a text message.
-"Hey. are u still mad."
Not even a question really. Even my mom knows I'm still mad. But I decided I'd try to be civil and replied that I wasn't as mad, but I wasn't ever riding with him again. Five minutes later, and in class, I got a reply.
-"I went overboard. u should have left P--- alone."
So apparently it's still my fault in his eyes, and this is one thing I refuse to take the blame for. I think I was fully justified in getting mad, and I won't be letting myself get blamed for this one. So I told him not to start with me this morning, I'm not apologizing, and reminded him that if he got caught we would have gotten the worst of it as the legal adults there that night. Again with the reply:
-"P--- would never let us get hurt or arrested. he would take it."
That's awfully noble, but it wouldn't work, and I told him. We would have been held, charges would probably have been pressed, and we most likely would have been banned from Hastings. Clever retort?
-"P--- isnt like that. he would put his life on the line to protect us. he is gonna be 18 in a month and we will join the national guard together"
Still doesn't change the fact that we were legally responsible for anything that happened! He could have protested our innocence until the sun set in the east and we still would have gotten the worst of it. And finally, his reply:
-"Today isnt the day to mess with me or P---. think about it. 2/8/07 the second year. i wont go easy on anyone who dares defy me or him."
Well, lah-dee-dah! I hate it for him that his mom died on this day last year, but I will not apologize for defending my morals! I don't care what day it is, and if that seems cold and heartless, well, I just can be that way, and I feel perfectly justified in it! So here, word for word, is my last text to him.
-Then leave me alone. I'm tired of always being in the wrong. This is one thing I refuse to let myself be blamed for. But I'm sure C--- told you that.-
So that should end that. I'm never talking to him again, and I just finished deleting all of his texts to me. I figure since I have them all word for word here, and I'm saving this to a document, I can get them off my phone so they don't clutter up my inbox. I'll probably save my replies to the document too, just so I can get those gone. But this... it's too much.
I just got off the phone with another friend a few minutes ago, and she says I'm in the right on this. My mom said I was in the right, when I decided to never talk to him again, and I bet that this will just cement that idea in her mind. But that's two people that could possibly be biased in my favor. So, please, if you read this post, look at it objectively and tell me what you think of this situation, and what I should do now. I've never had a fight like this that I came out of without swallowing my pride and being the first to apologize, and I don't want to continue that trend now. I mean, I'm in college, and I figure that if there's anytime to make a new start, it's here and now. So please... just give me your opinions. Ja ne, minna-san. Solaris out.

Bulletin! Important update!
Not really, but it got you to pay attention, didn't it? ^_^
I'm really hyper right now. I blame the strawberry-kiwi juice... yums. That, and the cherry toster strudel I had this morning. That icing is sugar to teh nth powah! ^____^
Okay, and I got out of my biology lab almost an hour early. Whole damn thing takes just short of two hours on Tuesday, my group finished their experiment early and we wrote out the lab report in a little over twenty minutes, because we just rock like that. So I got out early, came to the student union, and will probably remain here until 1:45, because I will be damned if I go back out into the cold before I have to. I mean, ish freezing out there.
I got a new phone! Yay! And it's a camera phone. THANK YOU EXCESS FINANCIAL AID! Now I just have to put some of that money toward my convention registration, and a new phone card... but that's not too bad, just 40 for the convention (I'll probably use some of my christmas money for that) and it depends on how many minutes I buy for the phone. Shouldn't be more than 150 bucks, and that's at the outside.
Oh, the joys of budgeting.
Well, I'm going to get gone now. Laters, minna-san! Solaris out!

Pages (18): [ First ][ Previous ] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 [ Next ] [ Last ]
There was no comic update this weekend. Yeah, I know, boo, Solaris, boo! But it wasn't my idea! I was sick and in bed much of the weekend, I only felt good enough to go out and get groceries (okay, and a new book... but that's something that doesn't require much movement!) on Saturday night, and Sunday was another sleep in day... so yeah. This week's update will be the two pages I should have posted this week, plus a filler to apologize.
So that's all I came to say. Laters, minna-san. Solaris out!
