Scrapin' Paint From Our Bones






January 22nd, 2009

Instead of a vacation...

I think I'm going to buy myself something nice.

Here's what I'm thinking. Help me decide ~Collapse )

The other option I have is, of course, to invest in a new(ish) car. It'd be nice to have, but it would be a pretty large investment to get a decent car.

And I really don't want to deal with car payments and paying for gas.

Ugh. A lot of stress. A lot. I think that's why my skin is breaking out so bad, from all the stress and the worrying and the lack of being able to do anything about it.

I have a whole bunch of personal issues that I'm dealing with that I don't want to go into (but you'll know what I'm talking about if you know about said issues, and if you want to know more, let me know), but that's not even nearly so bad as my financial situation.

I'm seriously at rock bottom, so far as money goes. If I didn't have my parents to lean against, I'd be living in my car. And my car would not be moving, since I'd have no money to put gas into it.

I need to find another job, but the prospect of actually getting out there and doing what I need to do to get a new job is kind of ... intimidating. It's just something I'm not looking forward to. It would have been so much easier just 3 years ago. -_-

I was thinking of re-applying at UPS, but for some reason their website won't let me re-apply, even though it was about a year ago when I applied last. I'll call them up.

The good news this week?


The seventh and final season starts on Thursday, and I'm going to be making a point of having Scrubs Night, which also doubles as Firefly Night, and there are going to be as many people there as want to come.

It'll be fantastic. :D

October 13th, 2007

There are some new Coheed and Cambria songs posted on their MySpace page which are, overall, totally and incredibly fantastic.

The new CD is called Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV: Volume 2 - No World For Tomorrow.

(This is, of course, contrasted with Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV: Volume 1 - From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness.)

Anyways, unless they've changed it since I last looked, there are the two on MySpace (The Running Free and Gravemakers and Gunslingers) but there's also a third song called The Hound (Of Blood and Rank) that has been floating around the torrent sites and I think the original version is on YouTube.

So, these songs being as awesome as they are, they have -- like many Coheed songs before -- inspired me to brainstorm, and this time I'm drifting back towards Anathema Complex.

(Though there is a steampunk-themed space adventure in the works, but that will be discussed at length after I've come up with some more stuff.)

Anathema Complex thoughts under here -- possible spoilers, if you careCollapse )

Chasing Winter

Something I wrote up for my creative writing class. It's inspired by a story I'm storming up in my mind.

I've got to run to class now, so I'll write more about it later.

Chasing WinterCollapse )

Bad news, everybody!

Hot Asian Girl is apparently a huge whore who has cheated on everyone she's dated.

And currently, even as she was dumped by her ex-boyfriend for cheating on him, she wants to get back with him ... yet she's still sleeping with some other dude.


I'm staying far, far away.

Always Sunny in Philadelphia is kind of a fantastic show. Thank you DVR for letting me partake. :D

It's a bit cheesy -- and really? That's fine. Part of the appeal, I suppose. There are some parts that just kind of kill me. Could it be my replacement for Scrubs?

Possibly. Possibly.

Oh, also: I had posted what I thought was my latest version of my Kasrkins at first glance, but then I realized I didn't have the latest version at work.

So now that I'm at home, here's the latest version:

did somebody take your tongue?

List ten things that have recently made you happy, then tag ten people to do the same.

1. Friends from the Cafe.
2. Wonderful, hilarious drama at school.
3. Wonderful, hilarious drama on The Real World (I have a problem, alright?)
4. New DVR -- it's a little fantastic.
5. Halo 3
6. Finding out that Hot Asian Girl is now single. (\o/)
7. A full tank of gas.
8. Buying a new, fresh sketchbook.
9. Exercise.
10. Finding the ability to -- for a short time -- disconnect myself from the world around me and live as myself, not worrying about what others think of me and finding solace in my solidarity.

(PS: I could probably pretty easily make a list of things that make me sad, as well.)

I tag....

1. archeon

I don't really feel like making this lengthy narrative, so I'm going to make a list.

Lists are more fun, anyways.

  • Beat Halo 3. Too short, but good. Things were resolved.

  • Steampunk for Halloween. It's going to be fantastic.

  • Related: Can't get enough Abney Park.

  • We have DVR now. Which means I can record a ridiculous amount of television, which I will happily soak in. 'Twill be the end of me.

  • Cigarette consumption is down, though it sucks. I'm going to give tomorrow a try and not smoking ... Though right now I really feel like I need at least one.

  • Exercising is leveling off at every other day, as opposed to every day. I think that's better overall, and plus -- it's too easy to let myself down if I commit to doing it every day, since I know I won't do it every day.

  • Still single. Details on that ... ? Outlook hazy. I suppose it'd help to decide what it is exactly that I want.

  • Debating between getting money and buying a new computer, or saving for my global trip I want to take next spring.

  • Anathema Complex still in limbo. Chasing Winter ... still in limbo.

  • Going to start committing 1 hour a night to drawing a comic. One night to Anathema, one night to Winter.

  • Hormones control my actions. I need to find that part of my body and cut it out, with extreme prejudice.

  • I need more Apoptygma Berzerk.

I want to go to Chicago this weekend. Probably on Saturday. Just for the day, maybe leave early afternoon, come back, oh, around 8-ish?

Anyone interested in meeting me up down there or going with? :D

Also, I need to get on the whole comic thing. I'm not sure what's going on with my domain name. I need to smooth that out and find my PHP script again, and make sure it all works like it's supposed to.

Then I need to register www.chasingwinter.com.

Finally: I need to get as good at drawing as this guy.
