hello there internet :)

i know, i know, it's been ages, and i'm sorry about the large gap in between posts, but unfortunately it was for a few personal, irritating reasons. (and just may i say, for the lawyer who is currently stalking my LJ? eat me. no, srsly, kiss my ass and find someone else to bother. i'm through being concerned over your problems. eat a bag of dicks.)

so anyway, in all better news, things have been pretty well for me :) i'll recap later, this post happens to be for the purpose of a proposal of sorts.

most of you who know me, also know that i avoid doing commissions at all costs. not because i hate them, per se, i actually quite enjoying drawing for others, but because i feel bad charging for it and can be fairly lame when it comes to finishing them. now i know, boo hoo, what an issue, but srsly, i have a hard time with this sometimes, so therefore i avoid it.

that being said, one of my oldest and most bestest friends is going through horrible financial issues right now, and nothing seems to be getting any better anytime soon :( she lost her job last year, is in debt up to her ears, shares the deed of a house with a husband she's trying to divorce who also has no job and no money, and she's trying to be in school at the same time.
yikes.
i hate seeing what life is doing to her right now, especially since i've been so blessed recently. tho despite being poor myself, i don't have a money sucking anchor of a husband, crazy debt or a severely low paying job like she does. she's living with my mother, the poor thing.

anyway, tl;dr, i'm going to try doing what i can by seeing if there is any interest in art commissions out there. i'm talking to all my fellow fangirls out there in LJ land, would any of you be interested in commissioning me for art? i could do sketches, inked, full color, multiple characters (not so great with backgrounds), multiple fandoms, slash, fluff, (any nc-17 stuff would have to be negotiated to see if i can do it, but you're welcome to ask) and original characters with good descriptions/references. srsly, try me.

is there any interest at all? i'm also willing to offer prints of any of my existing stuff. i have art throughout a few different fandoms of supernatural, fullmetal alchemist, sailor moon, and a ton of original angel characters.

if there IS an interest, i can lay out pricing and reasonable timelines for both the drawings and the prints, but i'd like to know i could actually pull this off reasonably. I really, REALLY want to help my friend, but without commissions, i don't have much to give :( i don't mean to use the sympathy card, if really, this is the first time i've ever truly asked, but it really is for a friend in need. i think that's worth a little expended effort on my behalf.

what say you? commission me so i can help my friend? anyone? :3
oatmeal_queen: (famous artist i am not)
geezus i need therapy x_x disappointing doesn't even begin to describe this crap lately.

Tomorrow is going to be awesome. i so declare it. (gawd it better be. pleeeeeez be)
new body, new home, new relationship, new life, and now a new job. i really am starting over. wth.

but hey, i'm drawing again. woo!

wedding is in 19 days. eeeeeek.
oatmeal_queen: (patrick stewart squee)
gah, falling behind. DEAR MAY, WHY SO BUSY. yikes.

so, in ironic news, after fighting with the apartment office and being obnoxiously belittled by the suits who think i don't know my ass from my elbow, i have air conditioning. \o/
which, of course, means that the entirety of this week was a balmy 60 degrees or so, and i never once turned it on.
of course.
but, as M reassures me, its the principle of the thing, and i don't regret putting my foot down. they're doing the second bed bug spray this weekend and all my crap is moved all over the place again so that they can get it over with. if this happens again though, my neighbors are getting an H2SO4 care package. complete with bow. cause i'm sweet like that.

In awesometime news, things aren't sucking as much anymore. WHICH IS GREAT, LEMME TELL YOU.

I took my mother to King's Dominion over the weekend for a nice change of pace to mother's day and had the most amazing time in the history of amazing. no, really, i can challenge this. For those of you who know me, or have been following along with my recent surgery and weight loss struggles, one of the biggest things i've wanted to be able to do is ride as many roller coasters as i can. not because i just barely fit in them and can, but because of the strength of my courage. and last weekend? there wasn't a single coaster i didn't fit in. so i got to pick them according to whether or not i'd chicken out instead of the size of my ass.

it was, in short, UNBELIEVABLE. i was beside myself at just how easy it was to fit in and just be normal, for once in my life. i loved it so damn much, and was grateful that i made it through the entire day without once bawling like a little girl when i found out (at least til i got home, lol. stupid chick flick moments) after all the years of going with M and her family to amusement parks and just wishing and hoping that i could ride everything with her without having to do that horrifying walk of shame, i finally got to do EXACTLY THAT.

and there are no words to describe how grateful i am. if i never lose another pound, i will be happy being just...normal sized, for the rest of my life. i don't wanna be a stick, i just want to blend. and i did, and it was wonderful. no one stared at me, barely anyone even knew i was standing there and i LOVED IT. <3

aaaaaand finally, in other news:
I'm going to London.
TONIGHT.
sweet fancy moses.
if anyone else is going to be attending Asylum 4 this weekend, well, APPARENTLY SO AM I. AGAIN. last minute like whoah. but feel free to chat it up if you see me there! i'll be that weirdo in the blue and brown bunnyhat, just like last year ^___^ probably running around helping staff <3

hopefully, my art will be there too, but that depends on whether or not they listened to me this time about printers screwing things up. Cause that never happens, amirite?

wdghjklghlqeg i'm so not ready for this x_x FLYING. DO NOT WANT.

AND OF COURSE I'M MISSING THE SPN SEASON FINALE. OF COURSE. DAMNITALL.
anyone who spoils me gets stabbed, i'm not even kidding.

i have a ton of replies to leave for the kittenCas!fic i wrote for the Dean/Cas exchange (yeah, that was totally me. i'm not ashamed, i can admit it) buuuuut slightly distracted. long work days and crazy tiems had to make up for the time i'm taking off, so yeah. internet, que?
i'll get around to it, promise. :)

cause i'm leeeeeavin, on a jet plane. i don't know when i'll be back again...(monday, actually.)
oatmeal_queen: (Izma strangle)
Update on the AC situation is sort of in limbo.
Not because i didn't go to the office or anything, but because i'm waiting to see if what they told me today is Actually What They Mean To Do.

of which, i've been duped before. )

In other news, Iron Man 2 thursday midnight showing tickets for me and M, GOT. friday morning is gonna suuuuck, but i don't care XD i need more Stark in my life.

also, apparently i wasn't as done with the asylum commissions as i thought? x_x LAST MINUTE GUESTS AHOY. at least it's an easy one tho, so i know what i'm doing all of tonight. possible change of plans for next weekend too...tho not completely certain yet. May is gonna be the death of me.

I'm thinking i'm gonna do King's Dominion this weekend hell or high water. Cause i really do just wanna go, and i wanna do something with my mom for mother's day since i can't remember the last time we did something that wasn't church XP we'll see how things pan out with M's poor mama. and with poor M too, actually, since she is very sick :( *gives her tea and kittens*

On monday night i dreamed about tornadoes at my grandmother's house. which i didn't really think much of, cause well, (1) dream, and (b) my grandparents living in upstate new york. like, syracuse area upstate new york.
so i get an email from my mother last night to let me know that all of the great big willow trees are down at my grandparents place along with a bit more damage too cause of a freak mini tornado disaster that nearly took out their house.
.____. que?

my life is so weird.
but it better be well air-conditioned when i get home 8|
oatmeal_queen: (raphael)
*sigh*

so this week wasn't so hot afterall. It was a decent hope? I guess? MEH.

Still working my ass off and still stuck with an obnoxious deadline for these convention pics. it looks like i won't get to go to England this year tho :( woe. there's still a chance for Germany, but my optimism stopped a week ago. if anything, i'll be making an impossible deadline that neither i nor my friends thought i could make, and that's worth something at least.
that, and even if i don't get to cross the Big Blue, i'll still get paid. score.
tho i would have loved to see my friends again ;__; (no, actors are not friends, i mean other fans i met last year)

although, M is right. As nice as these guys are, they are easily distracted with everything else going on with the con and working with them for art is a PAIN and an organizational nightmare. i am such a glutton for punishment, ngl, otherwise why the hell else would i be doing this x_x art doesn't just pop out of my hand in a few minutes, fully colored and print-ready. IT TAKES SOME TIME.
but they really are nice guys, so its hard to stay mad. i'll remain detachedly irritated til its done then.

They did offer for me to come to the con in October, which would be cool, but i'm gonna be down in the middle of the grand canyon by then. so no dice.

the internet in my apartment is finally back up to working order, as it has been slow and annoying all damn week until last night. my stupid computer couldn't find the network for the life of him until i pulled out my laptop to see if it was perhaps the router. the laptop found it instantly, and suddenly my desktop got jealous and found it too! x_x wtf desktop.
so that's one less annoying thing.
after this week is done tho, i think i'm gonna stay off of my home computer after work for a few days or so to detox. stuffing my face in my sketchbook sounds like an awesome idea, especially since i still have concepts to do for [livejournal.com profile] psychosako, among other things. my poor eyes need to stare at something that isn't a computer monitor, kthnx.

sooooo many things have been niggling at me for the past week and a half to sit myself down and start writing about angels again. srsly. it's like i wake up with it and go to sleep with it now, and its beginning to get bloody persistent. the only problem with that, is that if i do go back into writing The Story again, that'll be it. It'll be all-time-consuming and i won't wanna do much else, such as previous writing experience has taught me.
if anything tho, i need to outline that bitch from the beginning. reorganize and put some kind of order into it to make some sense out of the convoluted. my writing style has changed a GREAT DEAL since we first started it, so there's a whole friggen lot of it that'll need rewrites. possibly the whole thing. not that i mind, but that's a lot of words.

inspiration is a double-edged sword, yo.

it's SPFNthursday! WOO!
oatmeal_queen: (suck at photoshop)
So this week is actually shaping up to be better than last. thankyou, whatever deity may be out there, cause srsly, i couldn't take another train wreck like that.

my apartment is back to...i wanna say decent working order? i guess? the complex was apparently under the assumption that if you had your place sprayed for bugs once, having moved everything you own away from the walls and into the middle of the damn room, you would then of course KEEP IT ALL THERE FOR THREE WEEKS FOR WHEN THEY COME BACK.
which is ludicrous. srsly. i live in a one bedroom place with a decent amount of belongings, and there's no way in hell i could live that way for three weeks. fuck that. and i told them this, since they neglected to give me any kind of information after it was done as to whether or not i had the all clear. assholes. your wormy apologies make nothing better, especially since all of the bugs came from my stupid neighbors who brought them in then had the audacity to complain about it.
my ratties and my fish are still over at M's place and i miss them @.@

they finally fixed the ceiling fan-o-death in my breakfast nook (no, really, it sounded like the kind of fan you'd hear at the end of a horror movie where the protagonist is trying his damnedest to knock the killer into it and save the world. loud metal on metal screeching, it was amazingly terrifying.) but my dishwasher apparently needs a part ordered so that it drains correctly, and is not fixed yet. i'll take what i can get at this point.

the commissions i'm doing for this year's Asylum conventions* (note the plural) are NEARLY DONE OMGYAY. even with all the crap going on, i still managed to work my ass off for this crazy deadline and i cannot wait til i get through it. SO.CLOSE.NGGGGGGHHHH.
my writing muse has been niggling at the back of my head this whole time tho, and i fear the day she becomes impossible to ignore. one more week, that's all i ask, then i'll slash things, i promise.

my awesome boyfriend gave me Left 4 Dead 2 and i can't even touch it yet cause of all the crap i have due. ;___; May is gonna be nutz.

got an email from the guys who're sending me my first issue of the Last Unicorn comic, apologizing cause its late in coming. of which, i'm ok with this, cause i forgot i pre-ordered it to begin with. so yay for things i forgot to be annoyed with!

'Dirty Jobs' is an odd show to listen to at work more than watch. At least i have a decent constitution and am entertained enough to keep playing them tho, cause damn...ew.
but i ran out of mythbusters.

its almost May! gah, there really aren't enough non-sleeping hours in the day.
cheers to a better week.

oh, and amusing work convo is amusing. )
oatmeal_queen: (captain apocolypse)
For all the Supernatural nerds on my f-list...
this isn't really a spoiler, although the most recent episode kinda made me notice this more than before...(thanks M)

Do the angels feel like Turks to anyone else? I mean, the suits, the weapons, how they all seem to be body guards...Public Safety Division of Heaven? y/n?

Just sayin.
I love when my nerdoms collide. X)

SO MUCH DRAWING GOING ON RIGHT NOW, I DON'T EVEN KNOW.
this commission is going to be the death of me x__x
oh, and in conclusion:
[livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws! you are amazing and i want your babies.

this is what happens when i don't get sleep.
oatmeal_queen: (omgwtfCAT)
!!!!!!!

i was on fandom!secrets. O: wts?




*sniffles* My day, it has been made.

now if only my drawing muse was still around to enjoy this...*sets out cheese*

thankyou to [livejournal.com profile] simithedemon for letting me know. see how quickly i rush to nerd of this inspiring news?
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
pardon the spamming ^^;

SO, if you recall this entry: Brass and Feathers Lineart which was posted awhile back for the Dean/Cas Fusion challenge that i totally didn't make the deadline for... then you'll perhaps know what the hell it is i'm posting. huzzah!
if not? oh well. tl;dr steampunk supernatural.

Everything from the lineart still applies to the color. I'm still not an engineer (despite best efforts), i still couldn't tell you how any of the doodads or widgets work in this pic, and all i did was giggle furiously while doodling everything that makes no sense. take that.
oh, but its colored 8D
FINALLY. TAKE THAT LACK OF PRODUCTIVITY.

despite the migraine, the entire thing was amazingly fun to do. i won't completely swear of backgrounds yet, but let me tell you aspiring artists, they suck. and coloring them effectively sucks more. stoopid clouds.

Mediums: pencil and sepia ink, copic markers, white gel pen, and a little touch of photoshop to fix the damn clouds and add a swanky border.

Anywho, Art. )

Also! as an added bonus (pffft) if anyone was interested, i took a few shots of this picture while it was a WIP. forgive the crudeness, i used a digital camera to take them so some aren't straight or color corrected, but you get the basic idea :3 i just figured i'd share in case anyone wanted to see how annoying (and awesome) it is to color things by hand X)
Brass and Feathers 4 shot WIP

thankyou guys for all the love and support with this pic :D it srsly means the world to me to have such an amazing audience :3 keeps my inspiration flowing <3
oatmeal_queen: (dangerous art)
Well hi there 2010 :3

and as an added bonus, something to remind myself that the stuff i drew this year didn't suck even half as much as a few years ago.

cut for my sanity and your browsers )
oatmeal_queen: (sleepy chibiusa)
As it seems to be my tradition (despite nearly forgetting this year, ack) I finally got around to finishing my end of year holiday pic :D as every year, sorry for the spamming!

i actually had a REALLY good idea for both a funny and/or serious pic that i could do for the holidays this year, but i seem to be completely cursed into doing nothing but nauseatingly cute. x_x not that i'm complaining, but i really did try to do something different, i swear.

Thus, Castiel is my victim this year. and he's chibi, of course. for those on my f-list that don't know, he's the big eyed, stare-face angel from Supernatural. :3

everyone else? hopefully you can just tell X)

as always, regardless of what you celebrate, where you are in the world or who you're with, i hope EVERYONE has the most fabulous of holidays. i love you all and continue to appreciate your support for yet another year gone. to new and old friends, to new and old obsessions, to finding that one small space in the universe where you aren't so insignificant. thanks you guys, for making me feel so awesome so often <3

This took WAY too long for how much i really don't like how it turned out >:[
but oh well. i went too far to just scrap the whole thing so i at least finished, despite the fact that it wasn't how i pictured.
bah.
but after seeing the episode where Gabriel shows up (woo!) this got stuck in my head and i had to draw it. yes, there are a MILLION other things i should be working on right now, but it wouldn't let me go, i swear.

regardless, i hope people can at least tell who they are (spn people, that is) and why i thought it would be amazingly badass to draw them this way. (despite, y'know, FAILING at it)

NOTE: i have NOT included all angels, i know. this is missing both Zachariah and Azazel. cause I'm lazy.

thanks for looking! and sorry bout the mess XP i'm gonna try this kinda thing again sometime and get it to work. constructive criticism is always appreciated and comments are love <3

The lineup )
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
So i was actually working on this picture for the Dean/Cas Fusion challenge even before i had the thing claimed. no, srsly. someone suggested a Dean/Castiel Steampunk in that big ol list, and i was all 'screw it, if i don't claim it in time, i'm drawing it anyway 8D'
so...i did, lol.

HOWEVER, i don't think i'm gonna have the time to color it before the deadline, since i have a lot of other things to do before nekocon, so i at least wanted to post the lineart.
OMG BACKGROUND. wtf. i took from a great deal of sources and my own reference material for costumes along with airship pics, steampunked nerf guns, different classes of a gentleman vs a mechanic, yadda yadda gears 'n shit.

i had way too much fun with this X) (tho, truly, inking it was a bitch, gawd)

PLEASE NOTE: I AM BY NO MEANS AN ENGINEER
so for the guns, the car (and how no one is sitting in that backseat) and the wings, don't ask me how they work or whether or not they function cause i haven't got a bloody clue. tho i could prolly redraw Castiel's wings stretched out if i wanted to, i don't think i could give you any kind of schematic. 2d pic, s'all.

yes, the brown ink is true to the original and completely on purpose for effect. Sepia brush pens ftw. i know this looks like a great big mess of lines right now, but once i get a chance to color it (AND I AM DOING SO) it will make more sense, lol.
oh, and you don't have to mention the clouds, i've already been mocked thoroughly by my art buddies for inking them e_e oops. heres hoping some color will make them look less cartoony?

all dressed up and nowhere to drive )
oatmeal_queen: (kitty sit and twitch)
Oog this week X__x

so far, i'm halfway through my first week of being officially back to work. full days and everything. hasn't been as difficult as i thought it was going to be, though there's been some juggling about what to do with figuring out the protein shakes i need to get in, along with taking lunch everyday. i never did that before, but hey, whatever's easy on the wallet, right?

on the other hand, because of all the protein i've been taking in (not to mention the still healing thing) i can only go for about two hours before i HAVE TO GET UP and walk around or something. I used to be able to go a full day without getting up from my desk for anything aside from food or bathroom. it's weird actually having energy. totally not angry about this, tho i gotta make sure i still get my work done in the process, lol.

eating is still weird. but peanut butter no longer hates me. HUZZAH.

Zombieland is my new favorite movie. no, srsly. totally gonna be a zombie for Halloween X3

was having kind of a blah day today which ended with me picking up my mail and finding a bill for the hospital that's around $600 :( which, unfortunately i knew was coming, it just wasn't nice to see.
HOWEVER, i then proceeded to open the rest of my mail which included a check from my insurance for the short term disability for work (SCORE) along with a letter from where i bought my car telling me they got my final payment.
the car, my Gabe, he's officially all mine.
8D
OH HAI SILVER LINING
that, and hanging out with friends tonight cheered me up immensely. if only my scar hadn't been hurting all stupid day. how very harry potter of me.

despite everything tho, i've been in pretty high spirits throughout everything. i have my bad days, but i've been more positive lately than i have in YEARS. <3

hurray for thursday! and for the weekend, looking forward to hanging with moar friends and being outdoorsy. should prove interesting, especially since i'm GETTING A PUMPKIN. WOO!
*dances* it's that time of year again!! *gleeeeee*

now if only this friggen Steampunk picture i've been drawing for the Dean/Cas fusion thinger would just ink it's own damn self e__e as much as i missed being a detail whore and have been having way too much fun steampunking the Imapala...aaauuuggghhh innnkkkinnnggg

speaking of steampunk, i've got a costume pulled together for Nekocon that i'm totally gonna sport. 8D stupid, nerdy excited doesn't even begin to cover it.
oatmeal_queen: (do not feed me)
oh hai gaiz! :D

sorry for the internet silence lately. i didn't mean to worry anyone, I've just had a week of no internet (oh the horrors), and have been trying to get myself to do other things with the time i have off from work. not that i can do much, but it's the principle of the thing. of which, i actually go back to work next wednesday ^_^ not a bad thing, i'm kinda looking forward to rejoining the rest of the world. and feeling better, that would be awesome too.

still healing, still getting used to all this new stuff and goings on with me. my brain and my body aren't all too happy with each other right now, but we're workin on it. sleeping still kinda sux mainly because i sleep mostly on my stomach, and seeing as there's a great big incision there, that's kinda not happening yet. tho my staples are out, and they told me that everything is looking great :3 so yay! no infections plz k thnx. they also told me i had already lost 13 lbs, but that was last thursday so i haven't a clue about now.

i stopped taking the pain meds two days ago, so i can officially drive again *glee*

eating is...weird. my meals are very small and are limited to things that can be thoroughly turned to mush before swallowed. no sugar. i'm on a timed schedule to help me with everything since i don't really get hungry yet, and i'm in almost a constant state of drinking. otherwise, it's not too bad. i started out thinking i would be hungrier with so little, but my stomach really IS that small now. bizarre.
eating out isn't so hard either. i sure as shit spend less.

but all in all i'm ok :3 i get exhausted really quickly, unfortunately, because i'm still not yet used to how little fuel i'm taking in. i'm also tired most of the time simply because sleeping is such a chore. laughing and sneezing don't hurt as bad as they did before (srsly, first time i sneezed after surgery, i was in tears, omg) tho i still have to hold my stomach when doing so, lol. each day is better than the one before, so that's a plus.

i've had a shitload of support. from both family and my friends and i love you all for it and cannot thankyou all enough. for those who came long distances to see me right up with those who are down the road and haven't stopped coming, i <3 u guys so fucking much.

the next few months are gonna be interesting.

on the plus side, i've found some mojo for drawing/coloring and FINALLY finished with [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who's bday present (woo!) apologies for it being so late darlin! but a very merry belated birthday to you <3 hope you likes ^__^
warning, snuggling angel/man love. you heard me.
HERE TRACE, HAVE ART )

ohhhh, also also, so, there was this fantastic fic i read in the renegade angel exchange on the dean/cas comm that was incredibly impactful to me and inspired a picture that forced me to do *gasp* a background AND perspective. WHUT.
the fic is called In the Silence After, is an apocalypse fic, and is gut-wrenchingly sad, but VERY well written. (dunno who wrote it yet!) i love this kind of inspiration.

so the pic actually came out kinda awesome and i was really proud of it what with the hatching fun tiems and all. BUT. EVEN BETTER. [livejournal.com profile] aesc agreed to do a collab with me on it and proceeded to work her magic and make it SO MUCH MORE AWESOME.
She posted it in her journal here
(sorry for leeching your link hon) and i srsly love what an amazing job she did. I LOVE COLLABS. SO.MUCH.FUN.

oh, and for the record? I love my show. srsly, srsly gaiz, apocalypse and sorta!zombies ftw. now one of my fav episodes and it was written by the creator of The Tic. I LOVE THIS. (SO MANY L4D REFS. I THINK BEN EDLUND PLAYS IT. gawd i miss that game ;.;)

and damnit [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia, why'd i listen to you and watch Glee? cause now i can't.friggen.stop o_o
oatmeal_queen: (may i never be...)
the obligatory 'night before' post, i guess.
wow, that kinda rushed up on me. yikes.

So tomorrow i go into the hospital for an open RNY surgical procedure (aka, gastric bypass). i'll be there for three days, two nights, so long as everything comes out ok and i'm doing ok. then i come home and will be off work having the crappiest three week vacation in the history of ever.
its gonna hurt, i have no allusions to think otherwise. but hey, getting shot would be worse. (i assume)

my mother is coming to stay with me til sunday, which has its pluses and minuses really x_x i love that i'll have someone to help me that i trust (and don't feel so bad asking for help) but on the other hand...it's my mother. she can't help but send my anxiety through the roof, it never fails, and she's going to bend over backwards to make sure everything is done according to her methods of healing. which is gonna drive me batshit by friday, i'm betting. drugs or not.

but anyway, i'm ok. :3 am keeping positive, and not really planning things to a tee cause really, it's easier if i don't. nothing's going to go right to plan, and that's ok. i'll work with whatever. i've been very VERY lucky that i have some of the best friends a human could ever ask for <3 srsly, there's no way in hell i would have gotten through this month without an ulcer or a hemorrhage or something if not for my buddies, and i love you guys so fucking much because of that. *gush*
[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar deserves a fucking medal for dealing with my crappy moods. srsly.
if i don't make it, you guys get first dibs to pillage my shit. tho cremate me with my markers, damnit.

i'm pretty sure i'll make it through ok. i've got a good Doc, all the tests say i'm 100% healthy (which i totally didn't believe, lol, but someone with a doctorate says so, it must be true). i'm young and i do pretty good with teh healing from past experience (considering how accident prone i am). i really do think i'm gonna be ok :3

but don't get me wrong, there will be plenty of bitching to come.

tl;dr, this month sucked, surgery is soon, and i'll come back online next week and let everyone know i'm still alive X) promise.

and i have cleverly ended this otherwise bland and depressing post with random art, just to fool you! (warning, kinda big and cartoony)
HA, TAKE THAT )

anywho, i'm gonna spend the rest of the evening distracting myself, pretending to be productive and preparing for when my mother arrives x_x SO MUCH FUN, I TELL YOU.

Everyone stay classy til i get back. <3
i mean it, i expect the awesome to wait til i return. e.e

Spent the 4th of July with [livejournal.com profile] psychosako and our Bellydancing troupe. we were surrounded by people setting off fireworks for like, miles around. yummy food, awesome people. no crowded, crazy DC metro.
:D

i signed up to do the Dean/Cas anonymous fic exchange, and of COURSE they gave me someone who was really awesome to write for that i am INCREDIBLY INTIMIDATED BY. gawdamnitall.
gonna do it anyway. as soon as i grow some balls.
D:

Stein played with my desktop for a bit (cleaned it mostly) and i can at least play L4D again with only the slightest bit of hiccups. as opposed to how bad it was before.
i keel zombays! and asplode ma teemates!
:D

i haven't been able to draw all weekend -.- as much as i wanted to. even writing has been sparse. i think i sapped out my muse. *slaps her cheek*
D:

My little brother's fiancé (my soon to be sister in law) called me tonight to confirm the details for their engagement party two weeks from now. coo, family weekend it is.
then she asked me to be a bridesmaid ;___;
*sniffs* uh...YES.
:D

chipped a DAMN TOOTH. on potato chips DX
aaaarrrrrggggghhhhh so.not.cool.
D:

COPIC CAME OUT WITH 12 NEW MARKERS.
*FLAIL*


I know I'm a year late, but... )
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
lol, i suck.
so my weekend basically consisted of me switching between being stunted for drawing, to being stunted for writing. i swear i can't have one with the other XP
that, and i totally marathoned myself out after the whole 45k words in a single weekend thing. yikes.
i'm not blaming that for my being sick or anything, but i think i rockem sockemed my muse around just a bit. sorry bout that darlin

thankfully, i am feeling MUCH better! woo! and am glad to be going back to work after missing most of last week and feeling like a LUMP. like a stuffed up, grumpy achy freezing lump.
still can't get myself to eat all that much tho. weird.

and i also drew things! wewt. scoured through all my netflix movies in a day along with the new Friday The 13th and the first Starship Troopers. SHUTUP, i love that movie! i can't recall the last time i went movie shopping, so that was fun :3

not that i'm insinuating that anything doodled was good at all, but it was fun and good practice.
i seem to be able to draw nothing anatomically correct atm aside from chibis tho (which is ironic, and counter productive when you think about it) but oh well.
supernatural scribbles, fyi. two of them are based off of that crazy long story i did.

here, have some art )

ok, bed for reals now. not that i haven't been sleeping recently like i was preparing for the spring, but sleep is good.
oatmeal_queen: (spn - dean snore)
hello to new people!! you guys are in for a very boring time, sorry bout that XD i'm really not that interesting, promise.

I just slept for about twelve hours x__x
anyone know what day it is? i lost track last week.

my room is an amazing mess *laughs* it looks like i got home from vacation and just exploded.
feels like it too.

gonna have to go out eventually today and get some food, seeing as i have none. not that i'm really all that hungry. going for five days while barely eating and running all over the place can do that to you, lol. i told myself before the trip that all that dieting was so that i could eat whatever in the UK and enjoy myself, right?
totally lost five pounds while i was there. no wonder the plane seat was more comfortable on the way back. oops?

ugh, i need to start swearing off large fluffy kitties q.q my poor eyes and lungs.

Also need to go out and find myself a good 11x14 frame. i'm so proud of this picture, and that's kinda rare for me. not so much because i think it was done well, as to what it now represents to me <3 This is the picture that will be sent out to every one of the Asylum Attendees/Guests (or so i'm told, here's hoping) as it was supposed to be in the registration packets to begin with. Stupid printer was stupid, which is why they didn't arrive in time.

Here it is, all signed and stuff, if anyone is interested )

I still can't stop smiling. it's making my face hurt but i don't care XD
now for some small shopping, lotso cleaning, and writing. probably not in that order.
