Well, its been a while, hasn't it? I've drawn a lot, since the last time I've posted, but none of its been worth an upload here. I've grown a lot too. Got married. Bought a house. Got a few raises, a few promotions. Yeeeeeaaaah. I'm still here. Still not very good at journal updates either lol. But not dead :)

Maybe, just maybe, I'll start uploading some of whats been drawn over the past few years. We'll see.

Why is it this kind of thing is what it takes to make me do a journal post for the first time in *checks* almost 2 years? *sigh*

Rules:
1. You must post these rules (very, VERY Important )
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create ten new
questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal. - NAH
4. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him. - NAH
5. No tag backs
6. No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this."
You legitimately (AKA, really, truly with all honesty) have to tag 10 people - NAH

Well, Its been another 4 months since I've made a journal post. There's so much that happened that well, meh, don't have the time to give a proper update.

To the point:

DA, I never thought you'd top mudkips. Really, I thought you'd gone as far as could be, but you've out done yourself this time. My hat is off to you, you deviously minded admins you.

On a related note, I think I'm the only person on my watchlist who knows what the hell "Team Seeker" is a reference too, and on top of that is quite happy to have that avatar. ^_^


Oh yeah, Llama! Give me Llamas!


On an art note: i just finished up a sketch while at a car shop. I'll be inking then uploading today/tomorrow. Got inspired by another deviants work, but I can't find the link, so I'm gonna feel bad about that.

Also working on (dear god) some fanfics. Horrible me, teasing you all with the possibility of shitty writing ;)

You aren't all that comfortable. But your morphine drip is the sh*t.

So. Long time no talk. Haven't been updating this here Journal in forever (ie, when I got a job something like 5 months back). Jobs going great. Love the people I work with, love most of what I do, and after today, man do I love the Health Benifits.

Why Bru, what happend? you ask. Well, in short, I had the worlds Nastiest Stomach Virus (tm). Damn thing had me puking bout every 15-20 minutes this morning. The doctor had a cow when I told her I'd already thrown up about 12 times before I got to the hospital. Impressive, to say the least.

They took my blood, hooked me up to an IV (I still hate needles, it seems), and then pumped me full of something that took out the nausea I'd been feeling, and some Morphine for the pain from all the puking. Let me tell you, Morphine is awesome. I can see how people get addicted to that stuff. One minute your like "F*cking ow...." then you're on cloud nine.

5 hours later I'm let out of the hospital, with a prescription and a precaution: don't eat at the chinese place you got diner from last night ever again! The doc wasn't 100% sure if it was food poisioning or a nasty virus, but either way, Bleh!

I had to go to 2 stores before I found a CVS with a 24 hour Pharmacy. I'm on a liquid diet the next few days. So no big meal tomorrow for Christmas with my girlfriends family. Bah Humbug.

On a serious note, I'm going to be fine, and I wasn't in the hospital over night on Christmas Eve, so I shouldn't complain. Much.

On a bright note, I'll be posting more of the art I've done over the past few months. Got me a backlog, to say the least.

In Any Case,,,


Merry Christmas to all, and to all, A good night!

2 years ago today, 32 of my classmates were gunned down in cold blood. I usually dont think about it, but I've had one too many drinks tonight to not think about what happened.


To Absent Friends.


Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

So i just found out in my Net Law course today that the Recording Industry in Ireland of all places, are telling ISP's who can access the internet. They will supply ISP's with the names of ppl that download illegally, and then the ISP's will cut off the persons access to the internet unless they stop. So far, one ISP in Ireland has agreed.


Now, whether or not you agree with file sharing is not the point. My issue is this: a private company is regulating access to the internet.  They are saying who can go online, and who cant, and thats just wrong.

So, this is the start of Blackout Week for Ireland. This article explains whats going on far better then I can:

www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/i…

and this is one of the sites about the movement of protest:
blackoutireland.com/




bascially, just change your profile pictures to black. Myself, I've added "blackout Ireland" to mine so ppl get the point.



WHy does this matter to you or me, if we're not in Ireland? If they can get away with it there, they can get away with it anywhere....

I haven't had a post in this thing since September, and what to I post? An update on life, my relationships, the evil professor i have that gave me whats amounted to 35 hours of work for 3 assignements before the semester starts, or that badass job I signed up for after I graduate?

Fat chance. No, its this thing my friend :iconkurohanetenshin: had in his journal. And I just know I'm going to regret this, I really do....

The rule is:
Leave a comment and...
1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you which song or movie you remind me of.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wondered about you.
8. I'll tell you my favorite thing about you.
9. I'll tell you my least favorite thing about you.
10. If you play, you MUST post this on yours



if you comment, believe me, I will find you and do this unto you as well ^_^

Hot damn, has it been a long ass time since I've done anything with my page.

*whistles*

right, been busy as a mother f*cker the past months. Spent all summer in DC working for Fr*ddie M*c. Not a bad place to work actually.

Spent the past few weeks getting back into the groove of things in school, and running my ass of trying to get a job. I think I'll have a few interviews lined up in a week or two.

I've also got a 6 month anniversery comming up, and I gotta figure out what to do about that. Not to mention getting ready for AnimeFest sometime next month, and NekoCon in November. Oh, and theres that whole election thing in two months....Times are busy, no?

Anywho, I am alive, and I am drawing again! my art funk is ended! now I just have to get time to make sure I can draw more >.>

Yes, yes, the rumors are true, I am indeed alive. I've been busy as hell, with projects and what not. And trying to find a job. If things go right, I'll be staying with my aunt this summer, up in DC. Should be great. Specialy since my girlfriend is on the other side of the city.
(yes, girlfriend. I did say I'd been busy :D)

As for art:
I've been doodling here and htere, but not all that much worth scanning im afraid.  Tonite tho, I pretty much wrapped up everything I've been working on for the semester. So I rewarded myself with the Naruto Shippuden movie. Good stuff, that. Laughed my ass off at parts. And well, it was inspirational, to say the least.

There will be more to come in teh next week or 2, i think. I'm in that artsy mood. Plus I've got something I've been working on (commissioned stuff) that I can't post till after I've got approval from the guy who commissioned me (nice guy, him).

SO yeah, thatslife :D

Hi there, Long time no talk. I sincearly hope everyone elses 4th of July (for those of you in the states) is going better then mine. Not to bitch too much, but ah, hell, its been a shitty day. Had to be at work at 5am. Opening on my own. Busy the entire time. Usually, I get 45 min worth of break time. None today. 8 and a half hours on my feet straight. Get home and relax a little bit. That was the best part of the day. I go to my grandmothers to celebrate the 4th before going to bed early for work tomorrow. Should be fun right? Nope. Cause right now, my Mom's in the Hospital, with at least a broken arm, possibly more, and I'm stuck at home because no one can come in for me tomorrow, and theres nothing I can do for my Mom. So, verdict is, really fucking shitty day. Hope y'alls is better.

Happy 4th of July

Well, schools out. Grades were great. Ended kinda...slow. I had about 2 weeks worth of vacation at College...most of which was spent with one of my friends (Me and her were among the few people who stayed till the end of exam week).

Now that its over, I get to look for a job. I should be working at Cracker Barrel this summer, as either a bus boy or waiter. My cousin is trying to hook me up there, so I've got my fingers crossed. I also plan to go on a few small day trip thingies, some on my own, a few with a friend of mine. We'll see how that goes *fingers crossed*

Lets see, other business.....oh yeah, art stuff! I plan to draw some more stuff this summer (surprise) and hopefully it will all be "safe" for DevArt. And speaking of art, I've got a kirriban set for 3000 page views. First person to get it gets a drawing. :)

anywho, thats about it as is. I'll keep ya updated if things change.

Right, some of you may know that I go to Virginia Tech. If you've seen the news, then you know that this morning, about 22 people were confirmed to have been shot and killed (tho some sources are saying its 32). The biggest shooting on a school. Bigger then everything else. Yeah. I just wanted to get it out there that I'm ok. Far as I know, my friends are fine too. I wasnt near the place when the shooting started, so yeah. I'm fine, at least physically. I'm more then a lil moody, and shaken, but I'll be ok. So don't worry bout me. If you're gonna pray or anything like that, pray for those who aren't quite so lucky as me.

right, here goes: Here are the rules:

The player of this "game" starts with the topic "6 weird habits/things about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 weird habits/things as well as stating the rules clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their devpage comments and tell them to read yours.... "
