And meme from [livejournal.com profile] anzupeach 

- Leave me a comment if you want to do the meme.
- I will reply with 6 of your icons and then you have to post this up and describe them!

1. This is Ritsuka from Loveless, a lovely little manga/anime that is really far too confusing to follow. But, Ritsuka is awesome and gets this look a lot. This is my "I hate everything" icon that really just amuses me.

2. Wolfram from Kyo Kara Maou. He's a demon who accidentally gets engaged to the new demon king (a kid from our world). One of my favourite series and he's a big reason why. He just makes the most wonderful facial expressions!

3. Don't remember when I got this, but it was just so perfect. It pretty much describes my writing process. I open a blank document and the proceed to do everything but actually write.

4. McKay is just awesome! Of course he can divide by zero. He's probably my favourite part of SGA, even though I stopped watching at season 3.

5. I made this icon out of a photomanipulation I did since I figured I needed something for when I was posting about a particular story. This is Liam McBane, the main character from my NaNo, and his dragon, Nina.

6. Ah, "to Castle Buttsex". Axel/Roxas was one of my big pairings back in the day. Still is, though I don't read fanfic for it anymore. This icon was saved purely for the lawlz!

Wow. I haven't updated since November. I suck. Well, things are going pretty good. Christmas was really nice. Had lots of fun being back home. I got a new camera from Grandma and Dad gave me money for a Wii. I bought myself EA Sport Active and have been using it everyday. It's a really good workout. I felt so sore after the first time I used it, but I'm getting used to it now.

In other news, Mom's house is currently demolished. She's having it re-done into two houses. This has been years coming, so it's nice to finally see some progress. So far the old house is gone and I think Mom said they had the new foundation in. It should be done before I finish school, so I'll come back to a brand new house! With insulation! I swear, that's the best part of this. Now I won't freeze my ass off in winter.

Speaking of school, I'm in my final semester. As long as I pass all my classes, I'm going to be graduating in June. It'll be nice to finally have it done, but it's still going to be weird going back home after living away for five years. Next year I'm hopefully going to be going to Mount Royal for my Child and Youth Care Counseling Diploma. It seems like a good program and is pretty much exactly what I want to do (work with kids in a school setting).

And that's pretty much my life. I've barely done any writing since NaNo, but I'm hoping I'm going to have a chance to finish the story up over reading week. Then I can edit it and I'll start posting it here.

Oh! I almost forgot. Not sure if anyone reading this knows, but I make custom My Little Ponies. I kinda have a lot of them, so I need to sell them. So... here's my deviantART journal explaining all about how to buy them. I also take commissions, if anyone would like their own, personal pony. For either, you can contact me through deviantART (if you have an account), leave a comment here, or PM me.

Wrote a final and handed in a paper today. Now I just have exam week left. I have one on the 9th, one on the 12th, and then I'm home on the 12th.

On the NaNo front, I'm really going to have to push out some writing to make the deadline. But I'm hopeful!

34912 / 50000 words. 70% done!

Slowly, slowly getting there. It turned a lot more serious than I had originally planned. It was supposed to be a light urban fantasy, and now I'm getting into all sorts of dark emotions. I kinda like it!

In other news, I have a 10 page paper due Thursday and a final exam the same day. Not sure how much NaNo I'll get done, but I think I should be able to include my essay in the word count. Please?

23435 / 50000 words. 47% done!

Almost halfway! And I'm finally getting some plot introduced. Yay! Yay for plot taking half the freaking story to get there.

I'm also a few days behind, but I'm managing to not fall any further behind, which is a good thing. Especially with an essay this week, and another one and a final exam next week. Then I get four days to catch up before the month ends. Go me!

13546 / 50000 words. 27% done!

So, I'm a bit behind. I was doing really well, until I realized that I still have two essay to write and a final to study for. At least I've finally started to introduce plot!
Yeah, I'm doing NaNo again this year. So far so good. I'm at 2497 words, which is more than I wrote in total last year. Luckily I have until the 19th before anything is due, at which point I have an essay that week and an essay and a final the week after, but whatever. I'm going to be happy just to get anything written, really.

After it's all done, I might upload the story for people to read. It's going to need some major edits though. Serious, serious editing!

Saw this in someone's signature on a forum. It amuses me!

So, I've been exploring around the My Little Pony world and I've found two ponies I want.

The Junko Mizuno Designer MLP



and the Blue Collector Art Pony



They're beautiful and I wants them. Unfortunately, while the ponies themselves aren't that expensive ($16 and $9) the shipping is killing me. It would be $22 to have them shipped to Canada.  There are times I wish I lived in the US, if only so it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg just to get a package delivered. Ah well. I have a birthday coming up, so maybe I'll get enough money to pay for shipping.
We've restarted this blog group thing. This week there was a choice of two topics. I picked the second.

Describe a time in your life when you had to say goodbye. Was it to a person? A place? A community? Was it easy to say, or hard? Was it a sad farewell, or were you happy to say it?

Hasn't happened yet, but next year I'm going to have to say goodbye to my university friends. It's not going to be a happy time. Especially saying goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] morgie39. We've been together since first year. We were randomly assigned as roommates and now she's one of my best friends. We've lived together for three years and are living together again next year. I expect lots and lots of tears when I have to say goodbye to her after graduation. At least there's still deviantart, where we can keep in contact (as it slowly eats our live). And who knows, maybe we'll end up going to the same grad school, in which case the goodbye at the end of that will be even worse.

Not that I'm not going to miss everyone else. I suspect tears all over, so pack the Kleenex mom!

I am currently lacking in a job and needing money. I'm also bored out of my mind. So, I thought I'd offer commissions for custom My Little Ponies. Please note, all prices are in Canadian.

COST:
Basic Custom - $20
- Includes 1-2 hair colours
- Simple symbol (painted or sticker or transfer, depending on what you want/what I can find)
- Optional body dye

Added features
- Gradient dye - $1 (no cost for painted gradient, only dyed)
- Additional hair colour - $1 per colour
- More complicated symbol (ex. glitter, gems) - $1
- Wings - $1 (angel), $2 (butterfly)

If you think of anything else you want, just ask and I'll let you know how much it would cost.

TIME:
I'll do my best to finish quickly, but depending on how complicated your request is and what's going on in my life, it could take up to a month. I'm also reliant on Canada Post to get me my supplies (hair and dye) quickly, so factor that in too. For a relatively simple request, it could take as little as a few days to make.

SHIPPING:
- Shipping in Canada will probably be around $10
- Shipping to the US will be about $15

PAYMENT:
- Full payment is due by Paypal before work is started

If you are interested just comment and say that you'd like to reserve a spot. Once you do that, I'll send you a big long form of stuff I need to know for your pony. I don't want to stretch myself too thin, so I'm only taking the first two.

Yay! Nutrisystem is working really well. I've lost 5lb in the past just-over-a-week. I'm pretty sure that's mostly from not drinking pop, but still. Yay!




In other news, still no job. I'm starting to get pretty depressed about it. At least I don't own any money on my credit card, so I don't have to worry about paying that off. It'd still be nice to have a job though. I'd take almost anything at this point, even fast food.

Woke up today to find cat vomit on the stairs. Joy. Turns out one of them ate my headphones. Guess it didn't agree with them. On the plus side, it gave me an excuse to buy new headphones. London Drugs had some SkullCandy ones on sale. I've been wanting those for a while now, so this was a good chance to get them.

Today I also went to the job fair. It was okay. Huge line, but it moved quickly. There weren't many places there that I'd work for. A lot of outdoor work. But I put in my resume at a few. Hopefully I'll get a few interviews and get a job soon. I have a grand total of $1.11 to my name, so...yeah. Need a job.

So, back in Calgary. Been here for a week now, but I've been busy unpacking and relaxing. The move went well. All our stuff got thrown out or stored. Morgan and I are going to be living together next year in a two-person place, which will be really nice. No more random roommates who I'll want to kill!

Right now I'm housesitting for dad. I have the house all to myself! Which is great, until I watch horror movies and can't sleep. I also just completed my standard first aid course. I am now certified to save lives. Hopefully I'll never need any of it.

And I've restarted Nutrisystem. I just got my first order today. Now, I know the program's good, but I really hate that they substitute stuff. All of my desserts/snacks got cut out and replaced with 25 bags of Nacho Crisps, which I'm not super fond of. Luckily, they're sending the stuff I actually ordered free of charge.But, if anyone wants Nacho Crips or Chicken Noodle soup, just ask. I've got plenty. Now I just have to put it all away.

Oh, and I have a dreamwidth account.  allykatb It's pretty much exactly the same as everything on lj. Actually, it is exactly the same. Everything'll be crossposted for now.

Anyways, that's all in my life. Hopefully I'll be getting a job soon and then I'll have money to actually do stuff.
