Oh hey there. Oh my. It's going on week 9 at school. I'm going slightly crazy. I have to write a 3-5 page MLA paper on The Amazing Adventures of Kavelier and Clay for Wednesday and I am just completely distracted and the internet is just so shiny. Everything else for most of my other classes is coming along swimmingly. But not American Literature. I just need to not get an F in the class. The last 3 quarters have been blessedly wonderful in that I haven't failed anything miserably in a long time.

I finished, for the most part, my flash portfolio. I really like it. Flash is actually kind of fun/very smooth to work with once you can figure out all the kinks in your timeline. The portfolio is over here: Thoughts or opinions?

And I also have updated and remembered about my account. My last public entry was like more than a year ago and talked about crazy nonsense. Which isn't much different than this, really. Oh well.

While looking for a photo reference for Intermediate Illustration (for an illustration featuring famous hair) today I stumbled a quote from Tom Cruise.

"On the discovery of the pregnancy; "Oh, I—I looked at her. And I went, 'You’re gonna tell me if you're pregnant, aren't you?' It was a moment where… It was one of those things. And I knew at that moment she was pregnant. ’Cuz I notice things in people.”

Because he notices things? Freaking LOL. And yes, I realize that this is over 2 years old, but crazy things are still funny years later.

I'm doing an illustration of either Katie Holmes or Suri Cruise, I think, for the assignment.
01) Twitter! (
Updating is quite addictive, especially since I figured out how to do it via my phone. I don't update nearly as much as I change my facebook status, but I think I change it about once a week. If you're over there, feel free to follow me as I complain about school and boys and say random crap that comes to my head.

02) Tumblr! (
I'm starting a random design blog called "Feeding Dynamite to Sharks" over here! If I can actually update it, I think it'll be super fun and a good exercise in terminology. Not exactly the most professional thing ever, but I don't give a fug.

I'm in a computer classroom at school and the Macs in here have Firefox 3.0 which is super funky. I don't know if I like it or will update to it on my Windows laptop when I get to it.

School is very cold today and I wish I had plans tonight. Blah.

ETA: I watched The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning and it made me cry. I'm such a baby about Disney movies, lol. The animation is quite lovely and it's a fun movie. I still wanna know how the DNA of two red-headed mermaids resulted in only one red-headed offspring out of seven. Remembering from Bio in high school, that's not exactly how it usually works, is it? But then again, mermaids and animated cartoons are not exactly rabbits or pea plants a la Mendel.
Just a quick meme before I get dressed for work!

_ Pick your birth month.
_ Strike out anything that doesn't apply to you.
_ Bold (or italicize) the five-ten that best apply to you.
_ Copy to your own journal, with all twelve months under a lj-cut.

DECEMBER: Loyal and generous. Sexy. Patriotic. Active in games and interactions. Impatient and hasty. Ambitious. Influential in organizations. Fun to be with. Loves to socialize. Loves praises. Loves attention. Loves to be loved. Honest and trustworthy. Not pretending. Short tempered. Changing personality. Not egotistic. Take high pride in oneself. Hates restrictions. Loves to joke. Good sense of humor. Logical.

Most of it is true and the stuff I crossed out is slightly true. It's just not as true as the others.

the other months )
01. I was going to start reading Twilight but I absolutely cannot get passed the first page. It is somewhat atrocious, but I cannot put my finger on why. I've had the book for at least a year. The movie comes out this year and if I cared about Edward/Bella, etc. I would totally want to see it... but I honestly just don't care. Maybe she's too emo? It just seems retarded from page one. Who really wants a sparkly boy any way? And werewolves are probably sexier.

02. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince HD Trailer!!! This movie looks so made of win. I imagine the scene in the cave... at the end is going to be heartbreaking. I actually have the book sitting on my lap now and I'm probably going to read it... after...

03. I finish re-reading the Nightworld books by L.J. Smith! Or Ljane? Whichever. But any way, I've been reading them since I came home from Florida last month. I'm almost done with Huntress now and there's only a few more to go. And then like 10 years until Strange Fate, which according to her Amazon blog is going to be at least 700 pages long, but it will be worth it. Or not really? I have mixed feelings about the stories she's been posting on her website. I'm glad that she's writing, but the stories are um, blahness. And a second Vampire Diaries trilogy about Damon? I just don't know how I feel about that. I'm kinda done with Dark Reunion. Let people die, you know?

04. I am in love with Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog! I only wish that it had been online for longer. I definitely want to buy it when it comes out on DVD and yay for a possible 4th part! Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion absolutely rocked in it!

05. The Dark Knight was awesome and at the same time dark and dismal. Heath Ledger was seriously hardcore as the Joker and it's going to be hard to fill his shoes. The whole Harvey Dent storyline was wasted, but there was excellent foreshadowing for the next villianess.

06. I don't remember what the other things were that I wanted to write about. I know that it's been a long time since I've posted. And I haven't posted regarding fandom in forever. I guess it's getting really good lately and soonish.

07. I started up at school in Pittsburgh, which is making me crazy busy but it's good. I have like 2 years left and I just wanna get done and get a real job. Other than that life is basically work and hanging out. It's all good. :)
So, finally, I received news from my school about whether or not I would be receiving my Associate's Degree. And despite getting a D in my Speech class, I am getting my degree!!! YAY! I am so happy about it. I won't have to rewrite my resume and make crap up about why I've been in community college for 3 and a half years.

I start at the Art Institute in July and hopefully most, if not all of my credits will transfer.

4 days til I leave the cold for the Sunshine State!!! <3

It's really cold here in PA. A week ago, I went out shopping in sandals and no coat and I was fine and now it's like pre-snow weather. Hate it!

Love this video!!! Very good for designers...

8 days til I leave!!! <3
Happy New Year! Some things of importance:

01. I want to post at least once a month in 2008 (So I don't have to say every time, "Hi my name is Steph and I am alive!"). This is that post.

02. I'm leaving for Florida in 22 days! I didn't get a Professional Internship, but I'm going to try again for the fall. I think I got really close last time, so I've just got to spiff up the Portfolio and try again. I am going this time for the Spring 08 program in Merchandise. If you come to Disney World, I'll hopefully be at one of the gift shops. So exciting!

03. I finished a version of my online portfolio, for a web design class. It looks like shit in Firefox, but I want to fix it up.

04. I hope everyone is good and safe and starts their year off well!!! Happy 2008! :D
For the past 3 weeks I've been working on getting an internship with Disney; this time a professional one. I've had a couple interviews and I hope things go well. I probably won't know until late November for sure.

In other news, I've just realized (with this entry) that I don't know how to blog any more.
Writing an Artist's Statement is hard! Oh phooey! :(

Art Meme.
THE FIRST 10 PEOPLE WHO RESPOND TO THIS JOURNAL ENTRY WILL GET A FREE SKETCH preferrably human (but not porn)... animals require way too much research for me right now for free sketches.

The fine print:
a) If you make a request, you must duplicate the offer in your own journal. It shouldn't be too hard if you really half-ass it.
b) Don't be shy in your request, but do understand it will probably be just a loose pencil drawing.
c) You might get your sketches ages from now, but you will get it eventually.
A note before you start reading this: This entry is really long. I mean really long. Like it took me 3 hours to write, based on notes I took while watching the show. So this is all about the experience from last night and me remembering it, until I have a chance to rewatch the finale (working on that now). I talk about everything that happened. So if you didn't see the whole thing, and you read this, you're screwed (unless you don't care; then by all means continue). Any way, happy reading. :D

First, before watching the show I had this theory about Seasone 3 )

So then the Season 02 Finale came on... )

The whole thing freaked me out.

So how about last night's Lost? spoilers )

And there's an Anonymous Icon Truth Meme. I'm on page 5 of the comments, if you'd like to tell me how you feel about my journal. Constructive crit is welcome. :D
So, I've participated in [ profile] the_lj_reboot and made myself a snazzy layout using only CSS to modify it! Sailor Moon is love.

As for the design, I was (and am) in a rut artistically, but I fell in love with the image. So that got me started. And then I made the background pattern. I knew I wanted something that was more minimalist, so I stuck with a white background and a teal-green color scheme.

Coding the stylesheet was a bit tough. I had I think 3 going at the same time, before I figured out what the problem was and then I figured it out, finally. So I suppose that was my process, in a nutshell. :D

The tutorials by [ profile] grrliz for making CSS layouts are wonderfully helpful. Check them out if you want to make a loverly layouts! :)

ETA: I thought I should mention that IE hates this layout. Firefox is constantly making love to it though.
