So what's flying folks? Good things I hope!
Yes, I'm getting better with journal posting...this time I only let a month pass by before posting!
I'm really trying to find interesting things to talk about, and most people here to, but honestly....my life is quite boring. I'm a boring, dull person.
But hey, I try, okay? LEAVE ME ALONE!!
Anyway, in case some of you didn't know, Disney's The Princess And The Frog is already coming out on DVD and Blu ray on March 16th. Wow, that was fast.
I wasn't expecting it to come out on DVD until at least after Memorial Day.
But I'm sure the marketing people know what they're doing.
If you want to find out more about the DVD release and what's on it, you can go here:[link]
As well as here:[link]
So far, it looks like there are some wonderful extras on the DVD, and even the music video of "Never Knew I Needed" by Ne-Yo, which I love!
So yeah, check it out when you have the chance, okay?
I recently got to see the movie Alice In Wonderland. Alright, first and foremost, it wasn't that bad of a movie, really. The scenes and settings were spectacular, and I just LOVED most of the costumes! But that's when it stops there....the storyline and plot just seemed a little flat, with no real substance except "Alice must save Wonderland, even though she has no idea who we are!" thing going on. I wanted to know more about Alice's life after coming from Wonderland the first time, and how Wonderland came about, and what happened between the Red and White Queen. The 3D effects I found kind of distracting too, and I didn't like the fact that the theater I saw it in didn't give you the option of seeing it in regular or 3D....they forced you to pay the extra $2 to see it only in 3D.
But in all, it wasn't TOO bad of a movie...it just needed more story and less flash, that's all.
I also got to see Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. I enjoyed this much more than Alice In Wonderland. It was very, VERY different from the book, but I actually thought that was okay. The movie stood on it's own, and luckily it kept the basic idea and story of Percy Jackson. Many people have complained that Percy Jackson was a "copy-cat" and knock-off of Harry Potter, and honestly.......the only similarities I see are the fact that it involves a smart girl, the "prophesied" boy, and the goofy best friend. Other than that, they both are different stories, and very much stand on their own. I don't see any reason to like one more than the other. Even though it wasn't the best, I enjoyed the movie, but if you want to TRUE essence of Percy Jackson and what it's about, I suggest the books, just like Harry Potter.
Alright, I think it's time for me to get just a little bit serious here....but no worries, nothing "bad" or sad. From ever since I've signed up here, I was so glad to make so many friends, and so glad to find some of my long time friend here too, like KittyOcean and SailorEnergy (Jeffery). But sadly, over time, I've lost some friends too....friends that I thought were the most awesome, but somehow...I've lost contact with them. I don't hear from them anymore, and it just left me thinking and wondering if I did or said anything wrong. Are they ignoring me? Are they busy? After some investigation and reading post, I've come to realize that there is a BIG problem going on here....a problem called ignoring. I know life is busy and hectic...especially in these times when finding work is so important, and finishing school is a means of a better life, but I honestly don't think it takes too long to give a simple "Hey, just noting you to let you know I'm alive, but busy. We'll talk later". Growing up, I've learned just how powerful words are, learned just how a single word can make you feel like the you can take on the world, and how a single word...or LACK of a single word, can crush your heart. Giving someone acknowledgment can brighten up a person's day, can make them feel like someone actually cares about them and that they are not alone, even through the internet. I work with children, and I've seen for myself how just a little hug, a smile, a pat on the shoulder of acknowledgment can make a child the best she or he can be for the rest of the day. When you brush off a child or a person..ignore them, you make them feel like crap, and try to teach a lesson to a child or try to talk to someone when they feel like crap....you can't.
Even when someone says something to you that you didn't like, I personally don't feel you should ignore them...talk to them, tell them how much they hurt you, and if they are nasty about it...THAT'S when you break ties, not just ignore to be mean or snobby. I made one friend here....I'm not mentioning any names....and at first, we were great friends, and even though we had our differences in things, we agreed to disagree and moved on. Then...this person just disappeared on me. No explanation, no IM's...nothing. It's been months now, and I've since then let go and moved on, as this person obviously did. But I don't bear any grudge or animosity...that's life, things happen, and life gets hectic, and we can't always keep in contact with our friends, even through the internet.....not unless we want to. Obviously I wasn't in this person's "circle of friends". But it's all good. I've met and made lots more friends than I've lost, and I'm okay with it.
So anyway, my point is...please don't ignore. There's no way that your life is so busy that you can't take two seconds to say "Hey, how are you? I'll write more later on, okay?". Take the initiative to say something...perhaps that person is waiting to hear from you. You never know.
Alright enough of that.
I just had to get that off my chest.
Alright, if you guys missed it on my last journal, I mentioned I was looking for fanart for my latest story, Angel Beat, and I gave descriptions of my main characters:
Aiko: 13 years old, about 5 feet, with dark brown skin. Her hair is dark brown, curly, and in low pigtails, and her hair is a little bit past her shoulders. She has dark brown eyes, and dimples on both cheeks. For her style of clothing, she usually likes wearing jeans shorts, tee-shirts, or tank tops in the latest fashion. She love ballet.
And here is the description of Jahmiel, the angel that was to take her soul:
Jahmiel: Light brown hair (almost blonde, but not quite) with a bang, and in a long pony-tail that almost to the middle of his back. He has slightly tanned skin (peach-tone) and deep blue eyes. In neutral form, his wings are white. He has a golden chest armour, and golden protection armour on his elbows, arms, and shins. He looks between 14 and 15 years old, but is actually almost 600.
I'm still looking for fanart of my older original novel too, The Dark Fires Of Cyphyrus, and you can drop by my Dark Fires folder to see descriptions of the girls.
Another announcement I made was that I'm looking for someone to do a pic of Tilly...who is the daughter of my Sailor Moon OC Sailor Sirius and Yaten/Sailor Star Healer, and Nichole, who is the creation of Sonicshadowlover13: [link]
is the daughter of Tiana and Naveen.
I wanted this pic because I just thought it would be cute to have a pic similar to the ones where their moms have met, here:[link]
For a reference, here's a totally cute pic of Nichole here:[link]
....And one for Tilly here:[link]
Like I said before, someone was supposed to do this pic, but that was months and months ago, and I never heard back from this person.
Please contact me if you would like to do this pic.
Well, that's all for now. Please continue to enjoy my gallery, and I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
