Okay. So, this morning, there is a delay due to snow and such. So, time for an update on me about stuff and things ^^
Key: A = Art, R = Religion, L = Life, F = Family, S = School, C = College related
(A) I'm kind of in an... Art block again ^^; It's not so bad that I cannot draw. Its kind of a... Block on new ideas ^^; I just repeat what I've done before or feed off of ideas directly given to me by others. I need some originality ^^;
(A) Also, I'm thinking of doing more animations. But instead of my first one, they'll actually be good XP
(A) One more thing: If you wonder why I never color my traditional pics, let me say so right now: I'm partially color blind, ok? I mix up colors that are somewhat similar, so I think someone's unnatural hair color is a natural one ^^; (Not with such extreme colors with like pink and blue, but I mistook a lime green hair color with blonde ^^;)
(R (Feel free to skip all R sections)) Just to re-establish: I am fully Roman Catholic in my religion. Albeit my political views are a bit more... Liberal than some of the stereotypical redneck ultra conservative Catholics. If I were like that, I'd hate myself (more than I do now ^^;)
(R, L, F) So... Me and my brother are constantly fighting whenever one of us brings up religion ^^; I try to defend my God, but I can't. He says my God is simply an unjust and jealous prick who will kill with no good reason. I know He is not, but its hard when he pulls up the entirety of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Joshua, and Job on me ^^; Can someone out there who is Catholic, some other kind of Christian, or someone who even shares those books in common in our faith books, like my Jewish and Islam brothers, help me prove to him that our God is a good God who has His reasons for His actions? ^^;
(A, R) Anyways... I'm going to do something. I'm going to make a second account. Where I shall post only religious art, such a new comic I'm planning for Lent, based on Jesus' life, and fan art for my patron saint Cecilia, the patron saint of music. If you're curious, ask me about it later, because I have not done so yet.
(S) So in school, I'm doing quite well. Its been a bit stressful because now they're throwing stuff at us nonstop and a lot. In the last 2 weeks I've had several essay like assignments, a research project on the book of Psalms, and a rejected research topic. So, I wanted to, for psychology, do a research paper on the phenomenon of telepathy. My teacher, after a few days of wasted research, told me to switch topics, because there isn't enough information to prove telepathy exists. I was all like: >-< I exist, but whatever.
(L, F, S) So, now I'm behind, and I'm doing research on the cognitive abilities of peoples with Aspergers, relative to 'normal' (hate that word) peoples. BUT, according to the DSM-5, it no longer exists as a diagnosable condition. >.< Me and my sister now are only diagnosed according to a no longer existing condition...
(C) Colleges are killing me! Colleges are flooding my inbox, 99% of them are ones I've either never heard of or don't care about. Recently, they're all liek: 2 DAIS TO APPLAY TO TEH UNIVERSETEAH11!!11, MIDNITE APPLICATION DOO!!11!! lOOKY HEAR!! I just... Want to slap everyone who sends me an email like that. UNIVERSITIES! THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST, BUT IF I DIDN'T MAKE ANY ATTEMPT TO APPLY BEFORE NOW, I'M NOT GOING TO, OKAY?!?!?! Ok...
(C) So, for the colleges that are interested in me, here are their current statuses. Accepted in to: UMassD and UMassB, Harvard interviewed me, Tufts wants to interview me tomorrow, and nothing from the rest of them as of current. Scolarships are going well as well. Nothing yet, unless I go to UMassD, but if Harvard wants me, UMassD is only an option to consider as back up ^^; But, I'm panicking. I have deadlines to send expensive initial fees if I want to go. I need to decide immediately, or I will end up letting opportunities close for me forever. And, I'm not exactly rich; I can't afford to pay a college money just to have it stay open as an option and end up not choosing it. Someone in college, done with college, or something about college, please help me decide ^^;
(F, S) So... A recent event where I hit rock bottom once again. My mom's birthday was on Sunday. My bank account is at -$200, thanks to a certain ****... So... I couldn't get the woman who gave birth to me and raised me a decent birthday present. So, I made her a cake. When it was almost done, I stepped out for a minute to help my mom with something, and then I heard the cake drop. My stepdad started yelling at my little sister who happened to be close by. Then, my mom came in to defend her, and started yelling at and blaming her for her cake being on the floor. Then, when I tried to defend her, he went on to me. I kept trying to get it in to his head that HE was the one who dropped it on to the floor, because he didn't pay attention to the fact there was a HOT cake on the stove cooling. He just kept on yelling and cursing at me, and everyone else. Stuff happened, and I... Almost did unforgiveable acts to myself later that night >_< But, I didn't. And, last night I made her a better cake, and gave her the proper night she deserved.
(End) So, there's some stuff. There are details I'm probably leaving out, but this took all of the delay to type, so... ^^; Byee. I've got a swim meet today. My last swim meet as a high school student. Wish us luck. I'm out ^^
P.S.: If I owe you art stuff, thanks for reading the entire thing, and remind me ^^
