What's up again everyone!
I figured enough time has passed before I finally get off my lazy butt and let you guys know what's going on...although with my new job, being in charge of ten to fifteen children in a classroom, I can hardly find the time to be lazy.
Anyway, I wanted to let you guys know that I'm here, and even though I'm not on as much as I would like and don't have much art, I'm still very much a part of this community, and it's going to be hard to get rid of me.
Alright, first things first, I'm sure you all know by now about the tragic, untimely passing of the actor Heath Ledger. If some of you don't know, he was the Australian actor that played in the contraversial movie Brokeback Mountain, as well as acting in 10 Things I Hate About You, The Order, and The Patriot. Although he was young, he was extremely talented and I'm very sure he wanted to be taken seriously and not just wanted for his looks. The cause of his death and the circumstances are still being investigated. All I can say is that most young people today believe that being "rich and famous" is the answer to life's problems, but sadly, as you can see by not just Heath's death, but other young Hollywood actors and singers that have died young, it is not, and that fame is very much a double-edged sword. I won't go into a long rant in this, because I'm sure you young people out there will learn lesson from this tragedy...all I'm saying is that Heath, I hope that your soul is at rest, and whatever caused your unhappiness and pain is all gone now, and you're with the Lord.
In tribute, I'm sure you'll all enjoy the trailer for one of his last films, Batman: The Dark Knight. It's said to be the more darker of the Batman movies, and so far, it looks good: [link]
Alright, besides that, there's another trailer that I'm sure you all seen or heard about before, but I just couldn't resist for those who don't know yet...Indiana Jones is back, and this time, the awesomely cute Shia LeBeouf is starring with him in it, as probably his son. Check it out:[link]
And last but not least, I just couldn't resist showing you all this trailer for a Chinese movie called CJ7, from the makers of the hit Shaolin Soccer. It was just TOO cute!
Please check it out and tell me you haven't fallen in love with it:[link]
I'm SO going to see it.
Speaking of seeing movies, I recently saw The Spiderwick Chronicles. I have to say honestly it was a little more darker that I thought it would be, since it was based on a children's series, but still, it was very well done, entertaining, and the special effects groundbreaking. My only pet peeve is the fact that they used the one actor to play twins (he was the one that was in the movie Finding Neverland with Johnny Depp). What, were they trying to save money or something so that they couldn't hire REAL twin boys?
Ah well. Anyway, it was a good movie, and I'd see it again.
Things are moving along slowly for me. I have an interview on the 26th to get my apartment. Please wish me luck everyone. If everything goes well, I can finally get my own place again, and not have to hear my mother yelling at me and my sister hogging the only computer in the house.
My new job is okay...it just gets a bit confusing with all those kids and how the classroom is mixed-age. As a bit of advice to those going into teaching...you should NEVER mix 7 year olds with with 9 and 10 year olds..or older.
Well, that's about it for now right now. I was hoping to have some new Dark Fires pics for you all to see, but.....no one offered, even though I did post that I was looking for anyone doing commissions or requests. I guess I must have bored everyone.
*sighs* I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
For me...well, let's just say if I had a boyfriend, it would have been much better.
Well, take care all, and be certain that I'll be back.
