What's happened since then? I've gotten a lot busier. I also bought myself a bass for my birthday, a Fender Affinity Jazz Bass, it's neat but I can't really play it yet. Looking into lessons, but I haven't found anyone yet. Plus 3 AP classes, an involved engineering course, and student council with an inept advisor yields me being braindead most of the time. Yeah that's it. I need to do some art asap, I've got Thurs and Fri off but have 2 doc appts on Thurs... Dentist and general, gener
With Christmas in less than a week, and since I've got a lot of time on my hands right now, I thought I'd write you all something to waste some time on. Since nobody told me what they wanted me to talk about on my last blog [except for some bizarre Engrish rock crusher comment...], I still haven't got any ideas. But anyway. There are a number of presents under the tree and none of them are for me; this is presumably due to the fact that I have wrapped all but one of the presents... That is, an
I've been up to a lot of naught lately. News: Our washing machine is DEAD. So we can't have the new one delivered until Dec. 10 so we've got to go to the laundromat a few times before then... Plus the new one is way better and cost half as much as the original. Never buy a GE appliance. Oh, and I can't take it apart. :( Thanksgiving was suckish. Nothing to report. I decided to make each of my cousins a papercraft thingy for Xmas. Three of them are simple Cubeecrafts (Darth Vader, LongCat,
So for AP Lit we have to read novels outside of class and write a one page analysis on each one. My first one was 'The Scarlet Letter' which was an okay book. The second one, 'Sense and Sensibility', I absolutely hated and actually have not finished even though the paper's due on Friday (thank goodness for Sparknotes). Anyway, I'm trying to decide on the next one. It preferably has to be short or a quick read, which is why I'm looking at plays mostly. My list consists of King Lear, Much Ado abou
I've been thinking about changing my display name from hawkxs to Hawk. (Although I haven't even checked if it's available...) How do you feel about this? (if you even care). Dang, it has two posts but was last active over three years ago... http://forum.tip.it/user/87511-hawk/ Second thing. Random real life type I-want-a-boyfriend stuff. There's a guy I like blah blah blah. Except I'm too chicken to ask him out because I've never done this before and don't have the slightest idea what to do. T

My last day of school is this Friday, the 11th; it's a half-day. Not looking forward to exams but looking forward to being done for the summer. Although I won't really be, as I've got AP Bio and Calc work to do over the summer, and I'm trying to test out of English 11... But at least there's no getting up at 5:30 anymore. I've got a half-finished something Deity Link papercraft on my desk, he's only legs at the moment, and I hope to finish building him soon. I'd also like to go to my local zoo
The end of next week marks the start of spring break for me. I'm going to Chicago, home of many LEGO stores. In lieu of Easter junk, my parents have offered to buy me something there; I have gladly agreed. I want to buy a pound of Lego bricks. In case you're wondering about my random absences, I joined the school soccer team this year and it's taking a lot of my time. Not much else to say.
I bought LEGO Rock Band for the DS yesterday and it's pretty epic, especially since it was only $20. The songs are kind of lame, and they're shortened but it's good value. Plus you can play it on the DSi... which is why I bought it. The epic book is the Ultimate LEGO Minifig Sticker Collection ( http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Sticker-Collection-Minifigure-COLLECTIONS/dp/0756659841 ) It is basically fiftysome pages of minifig stickers and it includes some older styles and licensed lines (Umbrid
My school has an on-going 'EDP' (Educational Development Plan) thing where each year you work on a different aspect of preparing you to go into the workforce/to college. For sophomores, this is a 'Life Timeline'... You have to plan out, starting Junior year and go ten years into the future. They gave us 3 lab days with a total of 10 days until it is due. We have to include what colleges we apply to, how much they cost, any jobs we have, how much we make, hobbies/activities, where we are living,
I decided I will start reviewing random things that I have purchased that I think people might possibly care to read. I shall start with the Nintendo DSi and some of its accessories and games. Nintendo DSi I give it a 9/10. It serves its purpose as a game-playing device, and does more than that. I know people scoff at the .2mpx cameras and sometimes at the Nintendo name, but it's surely worth the $169.99 US for it, especially if it's your first time with a Nintendo portable, or any portable.
Well. I'll start off with a list of things I want to accomplish and some detail-type things along with that. 1. Get mah license. Shan't be hard, as long as I pass my test. So that's to be done in February. 2. Be more active in Falador and TET. I need ideas for both. If you have something you think would make an awesome event or an awesome RP, PM me. 3. Get a job. (See below) 4. Not get seriously injured. 5. I guess that's pretty much it. Regarding a job. This is what I'd like to do: Sell po
There is now a group on DeviantART for anyone who happens to have a DA account to join. It is #Tip-It-Artists. If your DA isn't some obvious variation on your TIF account I'd ask that you proclaim yourself in your request to join. Everyone is automatically a contributor, if you'd like to sign on as a co-founder (aka admin), then do that. (You may or may not end up as a co-founder, we'll decide based on your contributions to TIF and the like.) I got new goalie skates yesterday as we were about
It's nearly noon and I haven't anything else to do, except try a bronze dragon (did earlier but I set it up wrong so it fell off the page) and do my daily Wii Fit thing. :P No school because 'it's a blizzard out there'... They actually called school yesterday, which was nice so I didn't have to get up at 5:30. I'm working on some armor concept art for quelmotz's firemaking suggestion: http://forum.tip.it/topic/252019-reviving-firemaking-ash-equipment-charms-and-more/ Take a look and leave your
Yep, today was a snow day, and so is tomorrow! We got like a foot of slush/rain/snow today, and we're going to have 50mph sustained winds tonight and tomorrow plus another foot of snow tomorrow! This means I got a ton of concept art done today! All that needs to be done atm is some ash armor, and I'm going to work on that before I go to bed in a bit. I also drew this epic blue dragon today. Go look at my gallery to find it since I'm out of time. All for today. Thanks for reading.
Have a stupid project/presentation on a gluten free diet due on Friday. Seriously. She expects us to have a nice poster and a 4-5 minute presentation about our diet by Friday. She gave us like 1 1/2 hours in class to research and wouldn't let us print anything out. We had crappy art supplies and not even legit poster board. As a result, I have to use my seminar tomorrow to work with my partner on it. And bring in my own scissors, glue, markers, and colored pencils to make it look half-decent. An
I did the Fri-Sat bit of the Thanksgiving Clue thing. I was locked out of our other computer by my father, who probably did it on accident, or is running a stupid virus scan (we have Norton... which sucks and takes hours to scan) I will be going to see New Moon tomorrow at 11... Currently listening to Muse! Working on an art history project about Il Cavello/The American Horse... How do you 'describe the appearance of the artwork using the elements and principles of design' when it's a 24' horse
My keyboard just kind of randomly stopped half-working. So now I shall post what I was going to post. Had thanksgiving dinner with some family yesterday; learned a random dice game I'm not sure of the name of. Involves 6d6 and random scoring rules. Will be baking pies today (for thanksgiving mk ii) and with some luck getting out some Christmas decorations and wrapping some presents. Made some fonts I was going to try out but then the keyboard died so I didn't do that. May do that later. Goin
Is ayoe reading y log? rap this is ad.... y whole otto row of keys is ot working suddenly.... Will postpone the rest of this entry until further otie. Thank goodness for Firefox i -browser spellchecker.
Been doing a lot of nothing lately. I've kind of been working on concept art for zaaps1, you can see it in my gallery if you want to. Today I made oatmeal scotchies and no-bake cookies, first attempt at using a stove in a while. WE GOT A NEW TOASTER IN THE MAIL RANDOMLY YESTERDAY! Our prior toaster was burning everything, and had been for a while, yet we had not replaced it. I was honestly going to go to Target on Black Friday at 4AM for a $3 toaster, it was that bad. But the place where my da

Any other details I should include?
Going to be working on some concept art for zaaps1's Divinite Mining/Smithing Revival idea. I've got the basics down, we'll be working to create some awesome armor and weapons, and some cool-looking accessories for the set. Basically the suggestion adds a new metal to the list, Divinite. The way you get to mine it is really complicated and to smith it is even more so. Obviously high levels are required. But the items will look epic. The description of each is already great, and I'm glad I get
We've got the potential for some new blood in Falador, you'll like it when it comes, I'm looking forward to it. For some reason at the moment I really suck at Guitar Hero, my fingers aren't bending the right way at the moment. I'm going to miss a Pre-Calc test on Monday because I have a doctor's appointment I wasn't told about until today which sucks. I really love the bari sax. Yeah not much going on. I need to make a Chucks sig. I need to find a proper picture first.
Made myself a sig for the SOTW 15, I quite like it, planning on using it. I highly recommend joining the Falador Library, there's a pile of good stuff going on right now in there. Planning on 'getting' my original sig back from kenshinjapan, we had switched for the sig/personality switch thread on the old forums but it hasn't been reposted. I liked my little navigational sig... :lol:
