First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^___^

Yeah, two weeks late, but who cares?!

This is the first time I've really felt like it was a new year. The year transition is always a weird time for me. It just seems to come so quickly, now! It's the end of most of the festivities and I usually find January to be the bleakest month of the year. 8/ Anyone else feel this way? We take down all the beautiful Christmas stuff, and then it really IS the dead of winter. We don't get a spark of YAY until Valentines Day. o_. Which is part of why the end of the year is so weird for me- everything just starts all over again before you can really think about it. Am I making sense?

...Anyway. So, I made a new year resolution for 2K9: To be more outgoing. I've been mostly hiding away in the little box my school career has imprisoned me in, and I've become rather shy, believe it or not. Well, it's shown in my art habits- I had become a lot more introverted in my art, too.

So my new year res here is for that to change. Sure it's easy to say that NOW when I'm NOT in school, but, we'll see, I guess. I feel confident this year because I kept my resolution for 2K8: To read 12 or more books. Might sound easy, but if you had no free time like me, you'd know how hard it is to find time to sit down with a book. Which I rarely got to- and then I discovered the audiobook. :D Now I can enjoy all those books I've wanted to AND do my art homework. Two birds with one stone! Haha. So with the help of audiobooks, I enjoyed up to 21 books! David and Leigh Eddings' Belgariad, and Malloreon series was among them. :3 If you're looking for an unappreciated book series, THAT would be it. HIGHLY recommended!

Moving on. So, I uploaded something. Next on my to-do list is to put up stuff I've done in school. Part of why I haven't yet is because we have a small scanner- and I have big projects. That keep me up. 24/7. And- I have been introverted about my art. So, if I haven't been too busy to find a big scanner, I've been too shy. Well, that's gonna change, too. I have a LOT of art to put up, but I don't plan to do it all at once. o.O I have other plans on my to-do list, but I won't put it all here. O.o

So, one topic that's been on my mind that's hard to explain to people is my character Guya. She's officially been living in my head for almost 14 years. O_O That's.... insane. One thing that REALLY bugs me is that everything I come up with on my own either has already been done, is being done, or will be done 3-5 years after I think of it. o.O It's a curse, I tells you! Well, Guya is and is NOT a prime example of this. Contrary to popular belief, it's not pronounced "Goo-ya". It's closer to "Gaia". I was 10 when a little lioness cub popped into my head- and after weeks of trying to think of a name, "Guya" just hit me, out of nowhere! It wasn't until high school that I learned about the Greek mythological figure Gaia. I shrugged it off- the ancient Greeks thought of everything. :P But there was more. Guya just hung out in my head on her own for 2 1/2 years or so before Oryan came into the picture. Oryan is actually pronounced "Orion", but, unlike Guya, he WAS deliberately named after the constellation- which I learned of when I watched Men in Black. :3 It just sounded like a cool name to me. Oryan first formed when I tried to practice drawing how a cat's body twists when it falls- I was using a cat care book for reference. Only, I tried drawing a lion cub instead of a cat. One really neat pose stood out to me, but then I was about to trash it before I felt Guya in the recesses of my mind say "Don't!" One of the first times one of my original characters ever spoke to me. So I asked her "Why not? It's just a drawing. And a bad one, too." She responded "He's my friend!" ---Now THAT was weird. "He? Who is he?" ---So she told me more about this mysterious lion cub that showed up on paper to me. Together, we discussed how they met and literally shaped their story on THAT sketch. Why was he falling? Did he live...? One thing lead to another and their story took off in my head. It was winter when this happened. Later that week I was watching Men in Black. Orion just stuck when I heard it. And the constellation was out. So, we (me and Guya) just went with it. It just sounded like an awesome name for a lion. He liked it, too! Oryan, my fallen star. Only I spelled his name differently, to make him unique. So yes, it's "Orion", not "Or-yen". o.O It just sounded so good: Guya and Oryan. Gaia and Orion. Union between Earth and Sky. Such a pair!

Fast forward some- high school, I read about Gaia. In early college, I learned that Orion, the hunter, had upset the goddess Gaia by over-hunting. So, she siced a giant scorpion, Scorpio, after him. Zeus decided to protect Orion by having him set before Scorpio ever came out, so they can never be seen in the night sky together. The milky way is supposed to be the poison from the tip of Scorpio's tail, still stretching across the heavens in search of Orion to this day. So, little fun fact- in mythology, they were enemies. In my head, they're best friends. o.O

But- is Guya purely original? I mean, I did come up with it on my own. Well, I just realized something. A little trick. What separates Guya from Gaia is the "y" sound. It's not "Goo-ya", but it's not really "Gaia", either. I ALWAYS pronounced it with a "y". So, if anything, it's more like "Gai-ya". Gai- and ya. Not "Gai-ah"; it's "Gai-YA". :3 So- that's original enough for me. :D There's Gaia, and then there's Guya. There IS a difference. :3

And I had to stop. @_@ (Note, this is more a review on why I stopped reading Breaking Dawn-- spoilers abound. You've been warned o_O )

....I had to stop reading this. Well, actually, I've been listening to the audio book since I am too busy to read for fun, so technically, I had to stop listening to this. @_@ I'm sorry but the whole imprinting on children thing.... makes me want to retch. My stomach lurches just thinking about it. I know, I know, it's the whole Protector deal but.... still- it'd eventually be like marrying your uncle or something. o_O Just... Geh. My issues were this was more like an epilogue story. There were no villians to really drive the plot, the first few chapters were the adventures in Vampy-boy and Emo-girl's sex life on a magical little island far far away where no one can hear you *beepbeepbeep* -republican!-*beepbeepbeeeeep!* (cookies to whoever gets that reference!) ----And while Meyer didn't totally go romance novel on us, thank God, the mental images still won't go away... And from there I was able to figure the rest out. I was like "Let me guess: they's gonna has a babie yes. Even tho that doesn't make a lot of sense that vampygirls are infertile and vampyboys aren't. And thens Bella ish gonna has some sortsa abnormal preggyness, yes. Baby gonna prolly reach maturity faster and be flawless yes. And..... What about Jacob? ......*ponderponderponder-REALIZE* ....Don't wanna think about it." A few peeks at some Amazon.com reviews confirmed my fears. 8/

So--- I couldn't bring myself to finish this. Sickeningly predictable, and man do I mean sickeningly, no driven plot since the villains were wiped out prematurely, annnd.... yeah. Oh, and the message was awful, too. Maybe I've been spoiled by other books like The Giver, Potter, David Eddings, (heh, these books kinda center on choices as their themes, don't they?) but to me, books need a GOOD message to deliver. In all my writing classes, I had to deliver a message or drive a point home, regardless of if it were a ceative writing assignment or an essay- and I have read several essays (Plato's cave allegory, Jonathan Swift's Modest Proposal being some of my favs) which also have a message- I am digressing a little, but my point is when you write or tell a story, there is something you want to communicate, entertainingly or not. This series, if it did have a message, and I indeed think it did, it's a bad one: You are nothing without your man. Regardless of if he talks down to you or mistreats you, you need a man to be happy. Growing up and aging is the worst thing that can happen to you unless sex is involved. Forget learning to be yourself and face some alone time before you're ready for an intense relationship, forget perusing an education, in the end, all you need is your man, to be married at 18, and a baby. Yep.

I think not. If I had a little sister in high school, I wouldn't want her reading this. o_O She could read it after a few years of college and a reality check, but..... egads.

Maybe I am being too harsh, too judgmental, and taking this too seriously- it's fiction after all. Pure entertainment. I get that. I DO plan to read more, but not now. I'll wait. When I first started this series, I liked the first book. It was the adventures of Vampyboy and Emogirl. Cute. Interesting. I thought some people were either too generous or too harsh in their reviews. But from book 2 (which was exciting at points but I wanted to SLAP Edward!) on.... I wanted to hit my head. Repeatedly. What ultimately turned me off though was the imprinting on babies/toddlers thing. *puke* I know the other side of the argument but still...

I'm more reviewing on the series as a whole, but I'm also leaving stuff out. Like how I wanted to STRANGLE Jacob after a while! "I'll never hurt you Bella- *hurts*" then he comes crawling back with his tail between his legs- then it's "I promised I'd never hurt you--*hurts, insults her friends, betrays trust, hurts again, is a total *******, forced tongue kiss/ASSAULT!, etc*-- Dude, did anyone else notice a pattern going on here?! He's one of those guys who keeps backstabbing you then comes crawling back all apologetic, which is probably fake, meaningless, and just good acting skills on his part, and he then goes on and hurts you again. And some people says he treats Bella like a girl!? Sorry but if a guy treated me like this, I wouldn't let him repeat offenses- he'd be out of my life the FIRST time he screwed me over. If not the first, definately the second, with a restraining order stapled to his forehead. Gals, don't put up with that! o_O Have some more respect for yourself- or you'll be a doormat! Sorry Jacob lovers, but.... that's how I feel. I liked him at first, really, I did, but after he became a werewolf and his personality pretty much changed, I just wanted to kick him! I shoulda saved that rant for a review on Eclipse but... I had to get it out. *steps off the soap box*

Hoooooooooboy.

It's been a while since I updated, so I thought I would. Just to let you all know I'm alive and kicking. :-P

So! Updates in my life? Starting a new semester at school, and I'm OH SO CLOSE to getting a B.F.A in Illustration! Kinda ironic for the lack of uploads, right? ^^; I actually do have a portfolio going, but not much time to photograph my work and put it up here. :/ They make me work big-I wish I had a bigger scanner.... Anyway, I -do- plan on putting some school-art up. GOOD NEWS is I'm finally getting more inspired to draw for fun! :D I haven't been lately because of--- a lot of things. o_O But it's coming back to me. I can feel it.

Bad news (sorta)- I still, as of now, technically have two years left until I graduate. ;_; *sigh* I am actually 9 classes away from my degree. 9 stinkin' classes! 4 of which I am taking now! BUT- the other three are Illustration classes, and they can't be taken simultaneously. I am taking Illustration 1 now- then I2 in Spring, then Advanced Illustration 1&2 await me in Fall '09 and Spring '10. :/ So near, yet so far. ;_; I got light headed when I learned this. -_-; I've come a long way, and I still have some ways to go... If I knew what classes at LBCC weren't transferable, I would have saved some time. :/ Oh well. At least I have more experience under my belt.

And- these extra 2 years do gave me some time to look into a credential, I could save time with that instead of waiting two years to graduate, THEN work on it. O_o;;

Anyway, right now I'm taking Illustration 1, Art History, Yoga because my back is killing me, Watercolor and Anatomy for the Artist- yay muscles! o.O So, fwee.

Next semester I am looking at Illustration 2, Production for Fine arts.... and, not needed for an Illustration major but, I want Character Design! :3 I am also going to submit my portfolio. >.>  

I thought I'd be done sooner, but... :/ It looks like God has other plans. And I think I have an idea why He wants me to wait.

OH! In other news- Next month, Brae and I are approaching our.... *drum roll* 2nd Anniversary! <3 I'm SO excited! :D I can't wait. Oh! Did I ever post about last years anniversary? THAT was a day to remember- everything that could go wrong DID go wrong- in the funny Malcolm in the Middle sort of way. O_O We can laugh at it now, though. But I will share that story for another time- I wish to do it justice. *snerks*

Anyway, that's all for now, I guess. ^^; Still alive, and still busy!

Yep. I've been 23 for a little over a month now. And as time has passed, I've found more and more little reminders of my age.

You know you're getting on in age when ideal birthday/Christmas/whatever gifts involve things like DENTIST TRIPS (Lislis no has health care anymore :( ), and things you can use to make food with like blenders (I wanna make milkshakes, smoothies and ice blends! :9 Blame Brae for teaching me. :P) ) and other goodies rather than things like manga, books, and DVDs. o.O

Yeeup. Growing up. Gettin' old.

OH! I'm learning more and more cooking tricks everyday. :3 I can make stir-frys, pasta, veggie burgers, all sortsa fun stuff. ^_^ Bwahaha! Though I still pride myself in my specialty: Tea and cookies.

Only bad thing... I miss my Brae! ;_; ...The crazy thing is- we're approaching 2 years together. O_O Wow...

Nuff babble for now. ^^;

Holy Karp, I've been a very busy Lislis lately!

First, I want to apologize for the long hiatus. Not like I can promise that it won't happen again ^^; But I CAN promise change. Ah, sometimes, change is a good thing. I am taking the opportunity to update this thing now to 1. let you know that I am alive and 2. I DO plan to upload more art. Yep. If I don't update now, I'd have to wait another week- and I've been through this before. =P

Okay! So- where on earth have I been?! At school. =p I completed my first semester at the Cal State with flying colors. :3 My one year anniversary with my Love was a funny story (we can laugh at it now) since Murphy's Law follows me EVERYWHERE, and it did so especially that night. My car ran out of gas, I borrowed his dad's car, we used google maps, got lost and we were almost an hour late for the play (We were going to see My Fair Lady at a dinner theater- so we didn't eat and we were starving. X_X ) What's funny now is we already passed the year and a half mark. O_O Where does time go?

Really, where does the time go? Already, we're down to the last month of Spring semester at the Cal State- and finals crunch time is.... quite literally starting to crunch down on me! D: Three papers due Wednesday, one BIG ONE due Thursday, a class to teach, and that, friends, is the tip of the iceberg! Though, I DO enjoy volunteering at the homeless shelter. <3 (In fact, that is what my report that's due on Thursday is on!) It's such an amazing experience. And humbling, in a good way.

Now. I think I've updated ya enough on my life. =P Now for my blue-prints for world domination! >3 ...*ahem!* Uh, I mean, now for my artist plans. ^^;

I FINALLY have PHOTOSHOP! YAAAY! Photoshop CS3. (And a good thing, too, it's saved my skin in one of my classes!) My Love, Brae, had a little 'talk' with Windows Vista on my laptop- and now Photoshop finally works. Which is why I celebrated by coloring the Glomp picture. :3 *points to it* Prettie?! =D I think I just fell even more in Love. <3

.... ^^; Anyway. Now that I have Photoshop, I can actually color stuff and still have time for school. YATTA! :D Now- as for this-- PLANS. Plans plans plans. Yis....

First- I wanna new Deviant name. But I don't want to delete this account, move all my art or whatever. Yourcommentsallmeanjustthatmuchtome. ^^; So- is there a way I can do this? Change my user name? If not- I GUESS I could keep HuntressGuya (since there is a neat story and coincidence to it) but... If I could change it, it'd either be along the lines of "Lislis" "Teh Lislis" or the name for my studio which I am considering. I use it in one of my stories- Kyrie. (Pronounced "Keer-e-ay", not "Keer-ee") It's really pretty sounding. :3 But I think "Kyrie Kreations" just sounds... hokey. =P I dunno, Studio Kyrie? Kyrie Studio? Kyrie Produtions? What do you think? o.o I can settle with HuntressGuya for now but... mrow. Other changes- more uploads, more colors, more yay! :D

I am also considering making a serious portfolio account. Or turning this into one.

If not, I do have plans set for a portfolio website. Yep. I just need to title it. My hiatus has not gone to waste, I do have stuff gathered up for it.

Anyway--- I've got reports to outline, stuff to print and then some. @_@ Like I said- I've been busy. But I shall try not to neglect this place for so long. Just-- don't expect much life from me until after finals. ^^;

Ooookay, so I figured I was due for a journal update ^^; So here it is!

Hey friends, sorry for the art hiatus, but I am letting you know that I am still here, I still exist, and I am still drawing. To say "I've had a lot on my hands" would be a lie, but so would saying "I've had nothing but free-time!" because I haven't o.0 Well, one thing is for sure, I will be having my hands full soon enough! :P Recently, I have been kinda busy- it's been a pretty exciting year thus far-

Graduation, teaching, stuff, and now for the next chapter in the Life of Teh Lislis:

NEW SCHOOL!

That's right, I am FINALLY going to Cal State Long Beach. Finally. I've worked hard and I'm finally there. Only to work harder. o.0 But it's worth it. I think. XD

Really though, I am blessed :)

Oh! I also got a new laptop!

And, more exciting news.... October the 15th will be my One year Anniversary with Brae! yes! It's only weeks away and we STILL don't know what we're gonna do or what to get each other, but! We're both excited. :D (technically, I should say it's Oct. 17th because that's when it finally set in my brain: "I am in a relationship! O_O " but..... :D

So yes. A whole year. Wow. :3 I'm psyched.

So that's Lislis' life as of now. Starting school and finally being able to say to my friends "See you at school!" is a good feeling. Only one thing is missing, and it's seeing my Love as often as I'd like. :/ But hey, I'm prepared to tough it out. I'm happy to be where I am. <3

I really wish I could say more. o.o But words seem to escape me as of now....

I might be getting a laptop soon!

Thing is, I'm rather savvy on old technology- but, not so much on the new. I'm a n00b as far as new computers are concerned.

So. Folks. Help me out here. ^^; What should I look for?

I already have a vague idea. Well, here's what I'm gonna need for school:

1. Must be Art Friendly- something I can do art on. (Must hold art programs: Adobe, photoshop, etc!) For this reason, I know macs are VERY good but... I'll be honest. I don't like them very much. ^^; I'm used to PC's. I wish there was like a combo of mac and PC. :P
2. Reasonable size- something I can carry around campus and not get weighed down. :P

I've done some browsing and I can't seem to find a laptop that doesn't have Windows Vista on it- I'm not complaining about it, but I have heard a lot of people don't like Windows Vista. Maybe because they're used to Windos XP? I think I could live with it as long as it's art friendly- and from what I've seen so far it seems to be. (Well, it's very mac-esque) Still, I like Windos XP- I'm used to it, but it isn't very art friendly for me. :/

Again, I'm a n00b to new computers. :P But some features I like thus far on the laptops I've looked at are the ability to play and write DVDs and CDs :3 Yee. I like this because-- I wanna make AMV's. I've had dreams of them dacing in my head and I wanna make them and get them outta my system. XD Been wanting to since high school! No joke! So- as far as AMV's go- what programs should I look for? Would they already come with the laptop? Another feature I've seen is wireless internet.... though that's sorta a new concept to me too. Man, I feel old. o.0 Whatelse... Ah, some also come with a built in webcam and mic, but, I really don't care for either. :P I have a mic, and I don't care for webcams.

So... yeah. I need a laptop for school. Gotta be art friendly (macs are). But also must be something I can work with for reports and communications (PC's- which is what I am used to).

If you're savvy on the latest laptops, a few tips would be nice. Thanks!

Eeeeehehee....I've been bad. ^^;

It's as if I've vanished off the face of the earth, isn't it? Well, the good news (or bad news depending upon how you look at it o.0 ) is that I havn't- that's right, I'm still here. And I've enjoyed my month-long break. ^_^ Now, however, I feel refreshed and ready to get this show on the road and start teaching again. :P

So! What have I been up to? Well, I graduated as May ended, and enjoyed a decent June. :P I also attended my orientation at my new school and registered for my classes! ^_^ YATTA! June came and went, going both too fast and too slow for me at the same time. :P Bla.

I must apologise for my lack of uploads. Again this page has been in some sort of coma. o.o I just got busy with birthdays, graduations, and other festivities here and there.

Blah- I dun really know where I am going with this. XD Just letting you all know that I LIVE! Bwa!

And am looking forward to the rest of July. :3 Teaching, Harry Potter, friends... yee. And by the middle of this month, I'll have been in a relationship for 9 months! O_O Not sure why that surprises me- I've been friends with him for almost 5 years prior. XD Yee. Whatelse? Ah...Not looking forward to August- it usually gets too hot in August. I dunno why, but August is like my least favorite month. o.o Man the year is pressing on though..

Oh! I know what I can ramble about! :D

Yanno what I miss? Christmas. XD What? It's July and I am thinking about CHRISTMAS?! ^^;; Well. I've been humming christmas carols to myself (especially Muppet ones-- "It's in the singing of a street corner choir, it's going home and getting warm by the fire..." -Kudos and cookies to who can guess what those lyrics are from) and on my friend's birthday, I learned I wasn't alone in thinking about Christmas. XD Soon I got people to join me in carols :3 CHRISTMAS IN JULY! BWAHAHA!

...No, really, I think it's a good idea! :3 Not presents or nothing- just get together with your friends and do something summer-ish! Like go to the beach and throw a bon-fire and make smores! Or... something! ^-^

Well, the reason Christmas popped into my head was because I realised that I think I like winter more than summer. o.o Summer is... hot. Winter may be cold, but it kinda forces you to get all lovey-dovey and bundle up with friends- start fire places, drink hot cider.... ^-^ The whole atmosphere of it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. ^_^ Not to mention remembering last year's christmas season, of 2006- it had to have been one of the best in my life. Nothing could beat sharing Disneyland, fireworks, that outdoor street fair and ice skating with my Love- and nothing could beat the gift exchange party with my friends, either! <3 Yeah, now I feel that warm fluffy feeling again... ^^; Meh. I still think Spring is my favorite season. :3 I love Spring- watching the transition from winter to Spring (with all the rain) is awesome for me- I LOVE RAIN! And miss it, too.

Eh, enough rambling for now. ^^; Got stuff to do...

Why is it that when I plan to update more, I end up updating LESS?!

Hmm. o.0

WELL! Updates in my life so far? Weeellll......

OMGIMSOEXCITEDICAN'TBELIEVEIT'SALMOSTMAY!!! O_O! :D! *happy dance!*

So what's the big deal about May?! Well, apart from the fact that it's now Spring, and Spring is my FAVORITE season!

A lot of awesome things are going on in my life. :D

1. Me and my 4th Wifey are GRADUATING! Her on May 12th, and me on May 31st! *SQUEE!* I'm getting an A.A in Liberal Arts and am *FINALLY* transfering to CSULB! HUZZAH!
2. My birffday- but that to me is no big deal, I'm turning 22. ._.;
3. My 1st Wifey's birffday is right after mine! :D
4. PIRATES!

...And right after graduation, this spring is going to lead off into an AWESOME summer :3 And I'm taking a break at long last from school. <3 Just for summer- and then I can start my new life at CSULB. At long last. I finally get to transfer.

So! What's upcoming this summer?

1. Another of my friends birthdays!
2. ANIME EXPO! *omgIcan'twait!*
3. Weird Al in concert! *happy*
4. SIMPSON'S MOVIE!
5. Order of the Pheonix! :3
6. And the big one.... HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS!

....This is going to be one heck of a summer to remember. <3

And the best part is-- *glomps Brae* Someone to share it with. ^__^ <3

Seriously though, all these awesome things are NOTHING in comparison to what's really important to me- the people, my friends, and my Love, who make my life what it is.

So much for doing a Happy New Year post! Well, this sorta counts, it's my first post of 2007! :3

Wow, even I'm marveling at the fact that I'm finally posting something. :o

Egads, I almost don't know what to say. Well, I'll start with an update on my life since I left. :P Disney World was great, I was happy to see my brother and be with my family- however humble in size that it is, it's still my family. Speaking of family, I consider my FRIENDS to be blood in their own way, and spending some of my holidays with them was just as awesome! After I got back from Disney World, (and going on a mini-adventure through the Carolina's with my dad looking for the graves of ancestors), nothing- no Disney World trip or any material thing in the world could be greater than to finally be in the arms of my Love- who I sorely missed.

So after I celebrated the birthdays of some friends and got situated in my new semester, as well as got back to teaching AND learned that I'm getting my AA in Liberal Arts (I HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE! YATTA!), I can say this years been pretty decent thus far. :3

Okay, ENOUGH BORING STUFF! XD

SO! Here's my Resolutions!

1. READ more!
2. Art more!
and 3! I dun like art thiefs. I really don't. But what I also don't like is when artists have to defile their own work with BIIIIIG ugly watermarks. Hate art thiefs though I do, ruining art isn't the answer. I believe art is meant to be seen. So, here is MY resolution on that issue: Art Thieves, I'm NOT going to desecrate my work-- just for you. You're not worth it. :P I'll sign my work and that's that. :3 If it's stolen, I'll know it's mine and so will anyone who knows me. >P

Another update: This week was not easy. @_@ I've had a VERY bad flu that I'm getting over. I'm talking fever, faint, weakness, dehydrated, it was NOT fun. I was miserable. ;_; Though I'm proud of myself- even though I felt like curling up in a ball and crying from pain, I was still able to put on an act, do school work, teach, and be social- and no one woulda known- well, untill late Saturday-Monday when the flu took it's toll on me. @_@; I didn't know what I had untill things got REALLY ugly on Tuesday. But I went to the doctor (a blood test told them it was a bacterial infection ;_; ) and got treated - and I feel better now than I have all month, so that's good! :3 Stomach still being...grr- but that, too, will go away.

On the plus side, my appetiet is back in full force. >D

So. What else.

I've taken a moment to look at my life, lately. I mean to really look at it.

It's changed. It's changed so much- no, I have changed so much. o.0 It's...weird! Well, I may not like change, but--- sometimes, change is good. I changed as a teen, and now, at the dawn of my adult life, change is hitting yet again.

And my situation will soon change, as I know I'll be transferring to a Cal State finally, and take on many more challenges. My situation has actually been slowly changing for a while. I mean, I never thought I'd EVER find myself in a relationship! (I never really cared.) That should speak for itself! XD

But I'm happy. ^_^ Getting a degree. Then I'll have a year and a half to two years left in college and I'll have a BA! And all that good stuff. :3

So. Enough boring rambles. :P Just thought I'd say what's been on my agenda thus far. Later I might ramble about what's been on my mind. Scary, a look into my head. o.0 Heh. Off I go.... need sleep! *snooz*

Time is NOT on my side. It hasn't been ever since..... Since I don't know anymore! AAAH! As I speak, I should be studying for finals. But, I feel restless. I want to change this place- really badly. Infact, I've got a good mind to just delete this whole thing and start over. It's driving me that insane.

What I would LIKE to do-- but God knows I don't have time to even count my fingers these days-- is delete some stuff on here and move a bunch of other stuff to my scraps-- and upload COMPLETE work! I've actually been considering making a new account for complete work and just let this be like an online sketchbook of sorts.

So much to do, so little time.

My last final is Algebra- and that's on the 21st. They'd make us test on Christmas Day itself if it was legal. The studying for the finals I will take tomorrow morning, the morning after and this Thursday have literally left me with no time for art-- let alone Christmas shopping. -_- I feel so..........

Well, at least school is almost over. Even if this is the most unaccomplished I've ever felt.

After Christmas, once I get back from my trip to Florida (I hate airplanes! ;_; ) to visit my brother though, I have PLANS for this place!

Consider it my New Year's resolution.

I still wanted to make changes on here BEFORE the Finals time crunch, but when am I NOT in a time crunch? Well. It wasn't meant to be. But mark my words--- Some changes WILL be done! BWAH.  Till then, I'll have to bear with the stressing out for the next three long days- then I owe some time to friends and family and my Love-- and then I will be back on here and with a vengence! >3

Untill then, Happy Christmas to all and to all a Good Night! Wish I coulda posted something a little more sentimental and special, but... this is on my mind at the moment. And has been on my mind a good chunk of this month. :P

...It's amazing to be alive, right now...

It's like I'm falling upwards, somehow. It's as if found something that no one can touch- but angels can hold.

Happy is the tip of the iceberg.

So now it is officially Fall. I've never been a big fan of this season because I've always loved Spring more, but this year after such a brutal hot summer, it's VERY welcome. Okay, I will admit I do like SOME aspects of fall- I like the feel in the air- the cooler temperature is a nice change, and I like the yellowing leaves, I like seeing the leaves fall from the trees in parks and stuff- and I LOVE the Halloween feel. I do have fond memories of reading Edgar Allen Poe in school and stuff. So fall is a pretty neat season.... but in comparison to spring... I like spring more. Right now though, Spring is kinda out of my mind. :P I'm enjoying the Autumn breeze and the smell of pumpkin seeds roasting. Yum. Hey, coldstone should have their pumpkin ice cream out by now.... hopefully. XD

So enough rambling on and on about seasons!

An update with life? Why not.

So the school semester is growing more intense. It feels like there's a test or two every week now- maybe because there IS. GAH. Heck, the only reason I'm up at this hour is because I am single-handedly working on a group project of sorts :P And am suffering writers block in the subject. So here I am writing a blog, because for some reason, I'm more likely to stay up all night typing things I like than things I don't really care for. o.0

Anyway. A little something has been on my mind as the new month dawns. Danger seems to be cropping up everywhere these days. o.0 I mean, not too long ago someone got raped at my school during broad daylight! And the crime rate has gone up in my hometown to boot.... JOY. o.0 So it feels like everyday more and more dangers crop up. o_o And truth be told, you never know what will happen- tomorrow is never promised. I'm full aware that I could croak anyday.............................. Which is why I love and appreciate every living moment I have here. Even the boring ones. Even the times when I'm angry. I appreciate being alive.

So let's face it. Tomorrow is never promised, but that does not mean you should be afraid to live. I'm scared of flying, but I still went to Colorado this summer. Why? Because I can't be afraid to face the world.

Because honestly, what life is there worth living is it's only a half life? I'd rather risk going out into the world- facing traffic day in and day out to get an education and work and teach and be with friends- than hide in my little Hobbit Hole and never see daylight. Why? Because it's worth it! Quantity of life is NOTHING when you look at quality.

In NO way am I saying you should be a stupid risk taker. Be brave when you have to be. There are basic every day risks we all must take- the risk to eat, the risk to get somewhere-- but don't go LOOKING for trouble. Caution is good, but foolhardyness, and paranoia are not. Live with caution. Take things with a grain of salt. But don't fear life. You can lock yourself up and watch the news and live under your own iron fist of fear. A wise person once told me that baboons build their own cages. You don't have to do that. There's a whole world out there- both wonderful and frightening- among other things- and it's waiting for you.

Bad things happen. Some happen out of consequences of our bad choices- and some happen that you have no control of. There are school shootings. There are psychos out there. Stray bullets do fly. Drunks go for joy rides (and so do some high people). People are perverts. Accidents happen. War. We live in a fallen world.

But you can't hide your life away. Live on!

That's basically what's been on my mind today. ^_^ And I will conclude with some lyrics:

Now is the time to seize the day
Send out the call and join the fray
Wrongs will be righted
If we're united
Let us seize the day

There are times when the winds of change and chance must blow by. That includes this gallery. As my time is limited, I've never had a chance to give this gallery the justice it deserves as far as my uploads are conscerned. I have several plans in mind on what to do with this place, but my main goal in the long run is that I want to upload more... complete work. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my sketches. XD I see more power in a sketch than I do in a painting sometimes. O_o I'm just weird that way. ^_^

But. It's not that I feel inferior as an artist that 90% of anything I have up here are sketches-- it's just, I feel that it's time for a change, and I want to prove to myself that I can go beyond the distance. And I need a change in scenary. BIG TIME. I've worked very hard and am so near, yet so far from affording my own laptop and art tablet- when that day comes, I'll get to teach myself digital shading. I had a taste for digital art (got an A in that class to boot!) and am determined to master it! Untill that glorious day when I can afford such spoils, I'll continue to work with my preferred traditional mediums. The cons of traditional art is time. This means less uploads... but, my upload rate has gone down anyway. x.x; I've been too busy to do a lot of things I want to. ;_;

I've got a few plans lined up here and there, not sure what I will decide on yet, BUT! I do have some serious goals. Patience, friends, all will be revealed in good time. ^_^

Now, while I am on the topic of affording a laptop... I need adivce.

Apple or PC?

Apple, as I learned in the digital art class I took, are PERFECT for art programs! They can be so spiffy! Just one problem though that I absolutely HATE about Apples though are.... you can't right click!!! THAT drives me CRAZY! D: I'd prefer a PC for that reason. I'm so used to them. o.0 But.... Art! Well... I hope it can play DVD's as well. ^^;;; Then again, we already have 2 PCs at home. But. It'd be my laptop and--- well. Because I want it more for art than anything else, Apple is the way to go... but the no right click thing REALLY irks me.... Merrrr. Advice? Please?

Anyway. Got some plans layed out. >3 Just letting you know to expect changes.

All week, I've been hit with some kinda happyness spell. I can't explain it. but... I just feel so...HAPPY. I haven't felt this happy in so long! :O Not that I'm complaining! XD I'm not! I just want to know why all of a sudden I feel so at peace with the world. O_O I mean, really! This is insane! Was it something I ate? XD I laugh, but I can't help but laugh! I think I have a screw loose or something, because I honestly can't remember the last time I felt this way- if I ever have to begin with. Alls I know is that the world may suck, but oh well, I feel nothing but pure, untainted peace of mind. I'm really, truly, very happy. And I have no idea why. Why should I be? XD?

Okay. Yesterday is proof there's something wrong with me. o.0 See, up to this point I refused to buy my college algebra book from the campus bookstore because it was $122 new and there's no used books for sale- so I bought it off Amazon.com for $80. Problem is, my math test was TODAY, and the book STILL hadn't arrived yet! (and knowing Murphy's Law, it'll come today, I just know it. XD) So that meant I had all this math homework piled up all at once and I had to cough up $122... $150 if I wanted the solutions manuel. So.... There I was, with 6 sections worth of my least favorite subject to do-- and to top it off, I was hit HARD with this cold from HELL yesterday! I mean, it's as if I got the freaking plague or something!

So. I was like "Cold of Doom? 6 sections of Math homework? Big test tomorrow? Going to be $150 poorer? OKAY! :D Bring it on!"

So 3 hours and a kleenex box later, and $150 poorer, I am like halfway done with my homework already before I have to stop to finish Statistics homework and eat a small dinner thing and go to class from 5:30 to 7:00. Then hours later, I finish the rest of my math. All 13 pages of it.

But my good mood never left. It's not even optimism I feel. It's just pure contentedness. Warm and fuzzy. As if nothing can go wrong or spoil my mood no matter how much I know I am jynxing it right now. XD MREE! It's like I'm walking on air. But better. Way better. And finishing all my homework and just walking out of my first math test only make me feel even BETTER!

Physically, I'm miserable. But my spirit is so high right now, I don't care. My chest hurts a little, I feel weak, I keep coughing and sneezing, but! It's such a nice day. :D I miss the clouds, but oh well. ^_^

Seriously, what is wrong with me? I'm completely spazzed by this, and being spazzed is only strengthing my mood by adding amuzement into the mix. It's as if I've drank a whole vat of Felix Felicious (for any of you Harry Potter fans out there X3 ) but better, even if things blow up in my face. o.0 Anyone else ever felt unexplainably, terminally HAPPY? O.o

Either way. I feel like just about nothing can ruin my mood. I'm on top of the world. <3

Been a while since one of these kinda journal entries, ne? :D

Have a nice day!

Ah, it's that unfortunate time of the year again: Back to School! X_x

So, to "celebrate" today being the first day of college...

College Kids by Reliant K

Someone please save us, us college kids!
What my parents told me is what I did
They said go to school and be a college kid
But in the end I question why I did

T'm poor, I'm starving, I'm flat broke, I've got no cash to spend
Sell all my books for front row tickets to dave matthews band
My girlfriend's at another school, i know this year will test her
I called, found out she had three other boyfriends last semester

And that's why I say
Oh no!  not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it university
No!  Arts and crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree!

80 grand later I found out that all that I had learned
Is that you should show up to take your finals and your midterms
The party scene is kinda mean, I think it's sick and twisted
The navy showed up at my dorm and claimed that I enlisted

And that's why I say:
Oh no!  Not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it university
No!  Arts and crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree

Don't get excited.  She'll say "no" without a doubt you see
And I've decided college girls just won't go out with me
They make me nervous and they always catch me off my guard
Like cell phone services I drop out cause college is too hard

It's time to call my father
Cause it's his alma mater
ood grades aren't what they seem
I think he knows the dean
It's time to call my father
Cause it's his alma mater
He says he's proud of me
But college always was his dream
And I would always say it's not for me

Oh no!  Not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it university
No!  Arts and crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree

Someone please save us, us college kids!
What my parents told me is what I did
They said go to school and be a college kid
But in the end I question why I did

Do what will make you happy
Do what you feel is right
Only but one thing matters
Learn how to live your life

[in background:]
(phi, beta, delta, cappa
Someone please save us, us college kids!
What my parents told me is what I did
They said go to school and be a college kid
But in the end I question why I did)

Do what will make God happy
Do what you feel is right
Only but one thing matters
Learn how to live your life

This is what I wrote in response to a survey on MySpace asking what my headline on my profile means. I liked what I wrote so much I thought I'd post it up here to make up for the sad cat story. This is my advice to everyone- What I mean by "Never be afraid to be yourself!"

Question: What does your MySpace headline mean?

Answer: At first I thought this was asking what my name meant. O_o But since it's my headline, it means what it says: Never be afraid to be yourself. I learned a long time ago that a way (not THE way, but it's a good step!) to find peace of mind and be comfterable with yourself is if you turn a deaf ear to peer pressure and realize that you are who you want to be. If you don't want to do something that others are pressuring you to do, then simply don't. Even if you're curious about something, but something deep inside you tells you not to do it, then don't. Maturity isn't acting all full of yourself and putting/caking on make-up and dressing up and conforming to whatever the hell it is people want you to do, it's knowing that you're mature enough to ABSTAIN from the norm, and be yourself. ^_^ People tell me "You don't dress up, you don't wear make up, you don't do this or do that, you are such a kid!" and I say "Well, maybe I am. So what? :D I'm me and I live to the beat of my own drum. Nothing wrong with being young at heart." So yeah... that's my advice to folks, especially those with low self-esteem. You, ulitmately, decide who you are and, only you, and you alone can permit outside influences to affect how you'll turn out. If some peers think you're not cool because you won't "party" with them and get drunk, then so be it. Real friends won't sucker you into consuming substances that will influence you to make a fool out of yourself while you get sick so they can laugh at you when you're at your weakest, as drinking and drug "friends" do. Once you find real friends, you're set, and to do that, be a freind yourself. Be genuine. ^_^ So go ahead and dance like no one's watching! You were born an original, don't die a copy.

This entry is a re-post of an incident that happened last year. It has now been exactly over a year since then, and in the critter's memory, I've decided to re-post this. This is one story that NEEDS to be heard.

Hee. It was a LONG 24 hours..... Where do I begin? I have to get this off my chest, though I warn readers, this isn't gonna be pretty. But I am posting it on my sheezyart, deviantart and LJ because I think it should be heard. Some of you might think I'm a sap, or I'm weak, some might think I'm immature and need to grow up, and others will think because it's not a human life it won't matter. But since when have I ever really gave a damn about what people think about my moral choices? I will say now that I was merely fulfilling my honorbound duty to be a shepard to a creature in need and while there was nothing I could do, I am glad I was able to atleast do something. With that said....

Sleeping in is a bummer when you have plans for a day. It throws everything off- so I got up late, did a few chores around the home, hoped in the car and battled the afterschool traffic out of my hometown. That was exactly 24 hours ago. I had a lot to do- pick up friend, get gas, visit 'work', go to my online class oriantation at 5:00, buy groceries because I had not yet had a chance to do that.... Yep. Busy day. Well, I made it to my friend's apartment, and I was just let in and was heading towards the stairs when something caught my eye: A black cat laying in the middle of a walkway. Now, feral cats usually don't lay in the middle of walkways. So I figured it was someone's pet and ignored it completely. I headed up the stairs when I heard a loud, urgent sounding "meow!". I paused and looked back at the cat. It meowed at me more, sounding more urgent. One good look told me this cat was definately not someone's pet; it had a cobweb on it's face, it's hips were sunken in and it looked very malneutritioned. It meowed more urgently at me. I meowed back and it's calls softened a little. It didn't look so hot, so I went down to examine it and it tried to get up and move, but walked lopsided in a circle and collapsed. For a moment there, I thought it had a broken leg, but I could almost literally see the bones under the cat's pelt and I saw no break anywhere. I let it take in my scent before I scratched it's head and went up to get my friends.

"Guys, we've got a sick cat downstairs..." I announced. After pratically an hour of delaying, I finally got two others (Ruka and Sharky ^.^ you two were SAINTS.) to go with me to take the cat to the nearest vet to see what was wrong with it and what we could do... I suspected it had worms at first.... I wish. Well. The vet looked at it. It was a girl, and she was dying of kidney failure. Our options:

1. Take her home and let her die slowly and painfully
2. Euthanize her for $200
3. Treat her for $1,200... or so I thought. If we could actually get that kidney removed for that much, I'd do it. Well, it turned out, that was the price just to hook her up to the IV. >.O; Ackakyakslfdpfk;adkfaspff!

But I didn't have time to stay. I had to hurry, I was already 20 minutes late for my orientation meeting to my online class. Well, I got there, talked to the teacher, met a girl who worked at a vet who could take care of the cat for cheaper prices and I took her up on that offer. After the oriantation, I bought my ridicoulusly overpriced text book, and hurried to pick up my friends and the cat. If she was so dehydrated, the vet could have AT LEAST injected water in her. But NOOO. I was vaugly reminded of why I LOATHE vets.... Freakin' extort money from people trying to save a family member/ possible family member... >.< What I don't get is why is it that it costed me $300 to save my cat Booger when he had that high fever, and yet there are clinics out there who GLADLY kill babies for free and the person getting an abortion gets all the anesthetics they need for free? It costs prettymuch an arm and a leg to save an animal (or to send it into the next world the nice way), and yet there's next to no pricetag to slay a child? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?!

Anyway. Sorry. I just see something messed up. -_-; So. I picked up my friends and the cat and went back to the apartment. I decided to stay the night so if the cat made it through the night, I'd be able to take it to the discount vet.... Or, well, if she didn't make it, at least she wouldn't die alone.... Ruka wanted to name her Elphaba, but after a while, I thought Amy suited her better, after the Evanescence singer, mainly because this was the bravest cat I had ever met. To call for help like that and not panic in the car was courage. So, I got us back to the apartment, and Ruka handed Elphaba/Amy to me (we wrapped her in a towel) and I cradeled her untill she wanted down. She didn't want to lay on the towel, so I just let her rest under it. She seemed to have lost the will to live, and she had lost her appetiete completely. I couldn't leave, she was definately dying. So I stayed by her side, held her paw, and talked to her. Every hour or so I got up to wash my hands, and each time I left her side, she started to meow. Each time I came back, I rubbed her freezing ears warm, petted her and held on to her paw. This was too painful to watch, and my friends thought so too. When they looked away, I did not. This cat's last request was to not be alone, and I was going to do what I could for her untill the end.

Hours passed. She layed there, never blinking. Slowly, but steadily, her body heat diminished, her breathing became irregular and her heart beat slowed down. A normal cat's heartbeat is FAST, but her's was alarmingly slow. After midnight I couldn't stand it anymore. This creature did NOT deserve to die like this, slowly and painfully. I was wishing I had just coughed up the $200 and ended her pain... but it was too late. We called animal control and asked if they could take her and euthanize her for us, but let me just say this... Animal Control needs to die. They need to boil in their own excrements, choke on snot, and die. Here is how our conversation went:

Me: *dials*
Phone: *ring* *ring* *ring* Then, a recording answers that sounds STARTELINGLY like Vincent Price. (If you've ever seen the Simpsons joke, that should give you an idea of what the recording sounded like.) O_O; Well... at least they were honest. o.0 I passed the phone around to my friends and we agreed, it was CREEPY. So, I

Voice: If you would like to adopt a pet, press 1. if you would.... (etc) Finally, if there is any other conscern, press 4
Me: *press*

So I got the fire department. O_o; Then they got someone at animal control to talk to me... The conversation went as follows:

Me: We've got a dying cat here. Is there anyway you can pick her up or we can come to you so you can euthanize her?

Animal Control: What kind of cat is it?

Me: A black cat. o.o

AC: Is it yours?

Me: No. We found her, and she's not going to last long. She is slowly dying as we speak, and we want to put her to sleep so she won't suffer anymore. The vet was charging us $200 to put it down, so we have no choice-

AC: Why were they charging $200? And I thought we were pricey.

Me: Look. Can you take care of her or not? I'll take her down there if nessicary.

AC: We can't. We can pick up in the morning though, no problem. What kind of cat is it? Is it a friendly cat?

Me: What?

AC: It's not agressive is it?

Me: No. o.< She can barely move.

AC: Okay, so we won't have to bring the chains or put it on a rod or anything?

Me: O_O NO. *thinking: Put her on a rod? What the fuck</B> do they mean by that?!* Look pal! She's DYING. Her body temperature is like, GONE. Her breathing is irregular, she has a SLOW heartbeat. I don't think you'll need to brign in the freakin' Marines to give her an injection! >.<;;;

AC: ....So it's not dangerous?

Me: *wishes the celphone had a cord so she could wrap it around her neck* No. She's not. In this condition, she's kinda helpless. She can't even contract her claws. So. Can we put her to sleep? She's dying, I'll pay up if you want me to. Name your price.

AC: We can pick it up in the morning no problem. Call the animal hospital in Norwalk if you need to.

Me: =.= *groans*...

I swear. You can only take so much stupidity....! Well. I stayed with the cat untill the end. At around 3:00 am she was gasping for air, which went on for a long 45 minutes before she drew her last breath. We layed her to rest temporarily on and below two towels. At 8 am (after sleeping near a complete health hazard) we called animal control to pick up the dead cat. "Okay, we'll send someone over" An hour and a half later, we tried again. "okay, we'll send someone over" ANOTHER #$¦amp;~@! hour and a half "Okay, we'll send someone over, but you'll have to wait a while and it'll be $60 at the door.

It was then that I nearly shouted at the person (the same one I talked to at 8 am) and I was about to tell her to go suck on a used tampon and die (Let's just say I can become VERY vulgar to people I don't like.... ESPECIALLY in the morning.) Finally I came to a compromise. I'd drop the dead cat off and she then proceeded to give me PERFECT, detailed directions on how to get to the Animal Control center. I swear to God, if we got sick/some kinda disease, I'm gonna march down there and kick someone in the crotch! (with steel-toed boots!!) >.< So, while everyone else was asleep at nearly 11:00 in the @#$ morning, Sharky and I proceeded to carry the dead cat (which had clearly hit rigormortis) to my car and drive to the Animal Control to drop it off. >.o Luckily for them, they didn't make me cough up the 20 dollars (or else I otherwise would have wretched on someone's feet and NOT been sorry for it.)

So.... I'm home. I THROUGHLY disinfected myself (I prettymuch had to Nuke my entire existance- attack my car with Lysol, throw my clothes into the washer, take a gazillion showers....

Oy. I really do wish I could have saved that cat. I hate watching things die... it's not the first time I saw something/someone die, and I doubt it'll be the last. I know. Death is a part of life, don't bother nagging me about it. Yes, I know I am a hippie. And no, I hate hamburgers because beef tastes like leather.... which makes me sick to my stomach when I walk into a leather shop. I can NOT stand the smell. >.< No, I'm not a vegan (I'd rather DIE than give up icecream), nor am I a vegetarian because I respect the food chain. I just wish I could have done more to save the poor thing, especially since I've been wanting a girl cat for a while... But in her last hours, I take comfort in knowing I did what I could to keep her feeling warm, comfterble and cared for. Caring is one of the strongest powers I know of... And I'm glad I was able to hold the cat's paw as she drew her last breath, and that she didn't die alone on the pavement. I did what I could.... I tried. And now.... I need sleep, ice cream, and maybe another shower.... and I have chores to do. ._.;

*crash*

And now for the epilogue! That night after I posted this (almost 24 hours after I called the animal shelter to see if they'd let me take the cat over to have her euthanised, I got a call from the idiot I talked to earlier (the one who was like "derr is it a nice cat? *slaps her chest to imitate the guy she spoke to*" ) telling me that NOW they were sending someone over- It took all my willpower to stop myself from cussing him out and I told him to cancel it, as the cat already died- SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY when she could have been spared that end if they had simply helped me out by euthanising her. -_- Idiots should NOT be allowed to breed...

*********UPDATE!**********
I've been so selfish. It's not just me that needs prayer- but the teacher and his family who need it more. The teacher's 18 year old son recently had a tumor removed, but they were only able to take out 80-90% of it- and what's left is still malignant. So if you add -anything- to your prayers- let it be that. Thank you.

Hey all!

Lislis is in a Finals time crunch right now- My Finals for both Math and Poli Sci are on the 31st. Now, amongst all my other classes, MATH worries me the most. Sure the teacher is being as COOL as it gets- he's grading on a curve, the Final is multiple choice and all that good stuff.... BUT! Intermediate Algebra is the JEEVES of my academic career. I've been taking the same class now for 3 semesters...this is my 4th...I'm almost ready to throw in the towel and give up hope.... Key word: Almost. ....I NEED TO PASS IT. DESPRATELY. D: So! This is my prayer request. ^^; My test scores are as follows:

Big Quizzes: Don't ask. For the love of shiney objects, don't ask!!

Exam 1: DIED!

Exam 2: I thought it was a C-... it was a D. -_-;;

Exam 3: B!!!!! (The good news is, I PASSED this one! :D! I did better than I expected! THE BAD NEWS IS: I'm still not passing the class! I MUST PASS THE FINAL!)

Final: *gulps* The final is cut and paste from all three Exams (or so I think/hope), and the score I get on THAT will replace my worst grade.... So.

This is where you come in. Just utter a prayer for me. That's all... And if you don't believe in prayer... then at least HOPE for me. Please? Prettie please? Prettie, shiney please with a cherry on top?? And a blue-eyed kitten? I'm not asking much- just a little confidence and enough of it to
1. Stay focused
2. NOT TO PRESSURE MYSELF. I mean, no pressure or nothin', but this next test really does determine if I can get into a Cal State or not. And if I fail, I will NEVER hear the end of it from dad. ;_; All this "I didn't think you'd do it" "you shoulda dropped when you had the chance" WON'T HELP ME. AAH! I wanna tune that OUT of my head. Out, out, out, out, OUT! >.<
3. CONFIDENCE. I wanna replace those worries I mentioned in 2 with thoughts like "I WILL MAKE IT!" and "I'll get my C or better and SHOVE IT IN DAD'S FACE! HAHAHAHA!" and "Look out Cal State, Lislis is getting her foot in the DOOR!" and all that jazz. :D I wanna keep those thoughts in my head. It's how I survived High School, and if I can keep that spark of confidence, I KNOW I'll transfer. I just know it.

But my brain is teetering on the brink of confidence and anxiety and destruction.

So please. Add that to your prayers. I would grately, GRATELY appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. This is the only class I'm really struggeling with, and it's been a LONG battle, believe me. So all I need now, is a little bit of confidence. Thank you.
