Hey guys, me again!
Just letting everyone know that...NO, I'm not dead, and no, I haven't forgotten to update my journal. It's just been hectic with going to college and working, so I don't have that much time. And when I do, I spend it sleeping.
So anyway, college is going okay so far. I did hit one bump though...I failed my second math test, but it should be okay, my average for the class is a B- so far, and I still have a third test, quizzes, and the final to pass, so I'm good. I've already made arrangements for tutoring...which I should have done in the first place, I know...so there's no way I'm failing another test.
I also got a B on my history mid-term paper, so I'm WAY happy for that!
Thank you all for the encouragements in going back to college. I know I can do this.
Also, thank you all for the birthday wishes, those of you who sent them! I really appreciate it. It's so nice to know that you're remembered and loved by friends, ne?
My birthday was pretty quiet, but I didn't mind. At my age, the "magic" of birthdays of long passed. I can't believe that when I was little, I used to WISH that birthdays would hurry up so I can get older. Now I can't believe how fast they come.
Ahh well, such is life.
So, I'm still continuing my original story, An Angel's Prayer, and again, thank you all, those of you who were kind, mature, respectful, and courteous enough to read and comment on the story. You have no idea how much that means to me, and how important it is that people give me their honest opinions. My biggest dream is to be an established, published author and even write screenplays for movies one day, and there's no words to describe how important feedback is. Thank you, those of you who read commented. You've truly showed that there are respectful people here on Deviant Art, unlike some jerks I've run into. I admit, there were times I've wanted to leave because of the silence on my stories, but I've also met some wonderful friends here, some amazing people. there's no way I can give up the good people and good stuff here just because of a few a$$hole, snooty artists.
So, again....thank you, my friends. You know who you are.
I'm still looking for anyone who is doing commissions. Just because I can't draw to save my life, doesn't mean I don't want amazing, quality artwork of my characters! So please, note me and we'll talk, okay? Please.
Anyway, there isn't much else new with me. I guess I'll leave you with a couple of movie trailer that I LOVED and thought you might find interesting. The first is The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn. I've always loved hearing about Tintin when I was growing up in New York, and I thought it was awesome they finally came out with the movie version. I'll definitely be seeing this. Check it out:[link]
The next is ParaNorman, coming from the makers of Coraline. Now if you've seen Coraline, you have to know it was a fantastic movie with a nod to the "stop motion movie" days. The new movie seems to push the envelope even further. Take a look for yourself.[link]
And last but not least, a tale from one of the many stories of Dr, Seuss....The Lorax. Now, even though I wasn't a big fan of The Cat In The Hat, or How The Gringe Stole Christmas movies, I did enjoy Hortan Hears A Who, and I hope this movie draws from that. See for yourself.[link]
I hope you enjoyed those and I helped make you interested in movies.
Have a safe and wonderful Halloween everyone, and take care!
