Listening to: T. A. T. U. - Show Me Love
Ugh. I havent updated this journal in forever.
How is my life? Seriously, it majorly blows. Im trying to work through a few of my bad situations -- financial wise and with a friends mother. Ive been working on getting my act together and had spent my entire Spring Break just cleaning the house and getting things done. Having my environment cleaner has helped me a lot with my thoughts. For some odd reason, Im thinking better.
I once had a few walls full of Anime pictures and a gigantic Japanese Animation sign taped to my back wall (it went right across the entire section). Ive taken the bloody thing off my wall several times, -- it has been there for well over a decade, -- but my walls always looked empty afterwards, so it always ended back up right after. This time however, I took everything down, and felt cleaner. Less Cluttered. It was a new perspective I never had before, and am now grateful for having.
Classes havent been going well. Ive slacked off too many times already. I still have a chance to make it up, but Im already thinking about dropping a class. I hope I dont have to take another semester at community college, and I sincerely doubt my father would enjoy it much either. I am also worried about how I am to pay for my University fees, as Ive stupidly spent up all my savings. Another thing, my car is in need of repairs, and I am reluctant to tell my father for fear of his wrath. His anger isnt a pretty thing and tends to put a big damper on my self-esteem. A slow as my esteem is already, Im working hard to have more confidence in myself.
My doll making is turning out great. I hadnt had much time to work on it like I would like, but I am ecstatic with my improvements. I may have to re-do the legs because Ill need the legs to be hollowed-out at the thighs. This way the figure will be able to balance well when standing and holding poses. I do not believe Ill be able to hollow-out the solid legs I have now. So the idea is to use un-backed Sculptey in the middle of the Paperclay that way the mushy material will come out well with the Paperclay is dried. All in all, Im positive Ill have the legs done right this time around.
In sewing, Ive started to make little doll messenger bags to be sold for $20 USD apiece. I now have enough material to make quite a few. I should hope this would add some much needed income into my savings. I just need to put aside some time to make them. Though, when I do have the time to spare, it is usually ends up with my face in a book or on the computer screen reading fan fiction.
The latest fan fics Ive read are two very great stories from Elpin. They were found on Fanfiction.net. Not that I ever leave outside the place. Very rarely do I do. Anyway, I spent all of yesterday and then in my biology class (Bad Michi!) today reading both A Gentleman's Gentleman and Branded For You. Both of these stories are very good, and I recommend them if they follow you brand of interests. **enter goofy grin here** Of both, I really liked Branded for You. Ive always enjoyed the triad coupling of Harry/Severus/Draco. The dynamics is very intriguing and very rarely do I find someone that can build a plausible plotline and still keep the characters within their character (No OOCness).
Well, that is it. This silly journal is now up-to-date.
