Well I recently moved from a small independent flat to a dorm flat and one of my flatmates (whom I couldn't choose) is pure evil. Maybe not that bad but there is a lot of bickering and every god damn thing bothers her. I have so far overlooked many of her shortcomings in keeping the place clean and having friends over at odd times because I want no drama, I'm pretty tolerant and I expected the same from her. But no, she has to put on a rant about having to clean up after me and me having sound from the loudspeakers of my laptop while cooking in the kitchen etc. and how all that shows I have no respect for her. Bitch, I have done your dishes and picked your hair from the drain and washed off that weird sticky shit you spilt on the floor so many times after your drunk spoiled ass went to sleep I don't think you have the right to treat me like shit because I left a used teabag on the table overnight. Maybe it's a pot calling the kettle black thing but the air is toxic here and it's not doing anything good for my motivation to do anything and I just want to get out of here but it's still Tuesday. Am I really supposed to last till May?

I've got two roomates/flatmates/whatever the word is, but after 3 weeks I can't say any of us have spoken more than 5 sentences to each other. We mostly keep to ourselves. I gotta break the ice or something cause I don't think I can stand a year of this.
It's just so boring.
Psycho - Think of a time all of you will be available and offer to go out for a meal or a drink. Don't say "it's because we don't talk to each other" either... that shit comes off as weird and desperate, just offer to have a meal.
Has always worked for my flatmates when I move to a new place.
Nofu: That shit has to stop, tell her what you just said (but do it politely at first), sounds like she doesn't know what she's doing and is ignorantly hypocritical about it.
Nofu I've had the same shit from my partner, he seems to get his knickers in a twist when I don't put teabags in the bin but he'll happily leave a pile of them by the sink for me to deal with because he can't be arsed. It's hard getting used to living with someone. It does sound like you'd have to have it out with her and point out how she's been acting, she might just not be aware how she's coming across, and if she is then you need to say your piece otherwise it won't change. Hope it works out.
Well that's kinda the thing. I never pointed that out before that mad evening and when I tried pointing all those things out then, she was going all like I'm trying to divert the problem and calling the other roommate for assistance, "like, for gods sake say something". Btw, the other roommate has no beef with me and I understand her desire to stay out of it. Now I feel like bringing anything up will just be pouring oil on fire. I'm just hoping things will chill out in a while because right now we're not talking at all and if we do happen to pass by it's in disdainful silence. Also being anally neat like we're doing right now is straining.
I'm hungry, but I don't want to go get food. Blah.
I finished the FAS and got my certificate (see Art Discussion forum for scan http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=225379 ), and I've started my next tech certificate.
My wireless insulin pump stopped working for me and now I've got to go beack to being connected to a pump. It's a pain, but going back to injects would be worse.
My friend misread what he owed to the court and has to pull $2300 to them by October, which sucks for him, but damn he should called them to see the balance and paid it the first time!
My friends are illogical sometimes, but I accept that in them.
Just scratched my forehead.
I drew a picture of Stitch chewing on The Maxx' back that came out pretty good, colored and all.
Started painting on my Iphone * Android tablet to get used to using the computer wacom. I drew a cherry, a yellow apple, and a tomato-cshould used ref for them all but I was doing this stuff on the fly.
Got a mild cold, and trying to prevent a full blown.

On my way home from uni yesterday I saw a teenager with his headphones on listening to rock music, I can tell he was listening to rock music because he had his skateboard in his hands and was playing it like an air guitar. Haha.
He was really getting into it too, puckered face and furrowed brow with his mouth beckoning the words and spinning on the spot as he walked home, +100 respect for doing that in public.
Nofu Oh I see, well at least it's out, I hope it does blow over for you soon, at least you're not living with them forever.
Blighted Haha that's brilliant! I was only chatting to my friend the other day about listening to Rodrigo and Gabriela on her way to work and in her head she's salsa-ing down the road putting on her best moves when in reality she's just trudging along looking mildly pissed off lol.
Well I really have to get on with a commission...9 people to caricature, deadline is a month and I've only just started..he gave me the commission 2 months ago. I am so lazy when it comes to getting started on projects, for instance instead of drawing all day last friday (which is why I booked the day off) I watched practically half a series of Grey's Anatomy because Patrick Dempsey is much prettier to look at and more interesting. I shouldn't moan, I love doing caricatures and I love the reaction when I get it right but it's always the way when you have to do something.
I'm going to go and look at some inspiration and then maybe draw some gestures and people from the WDELL thread.
My cat gets real jealous of my sketchbook's place in my lap. If I don't heed her cries for attention, she will jump up and butt the book out of my hands with her head, or else curl up on top of it. If I'm drawing in bed, she will attack my pencil, which I usually surrender to her as I can just pull out a new one, but of course she's only interested in the one that's making those nice, scratchy noises. If I don't stop drawing to pet her face for at least 30 minutes, I am punished with the claws. It's my own fault for spoiling her rotten, and treating her like a baby princess for so long. Sometimes I laugh when I think about what cats must think of us, especially my cat. "ok, so here's this giant creature that could totally crush me or chase me off, but instead it wants to pamper me for no logical reason and feed me and make me fat and lazy. Well, that's ok I guess!"
so there is this girl i like and i am waiting for the right moment to ask her out and
i am hoping she doesnt have a boyfriend already.
he hard part is i am too much of a coward at certain times so i shall wait for the right moment and
psyche myself into having the courage and not cowering in fear!! if there is no right moment...i'll just stay forever alone -.-
Today I met a puppy! She was tiny and adorable!
^ Is that just vaporized tobacco? I don't understand why anyone would rather smoke cigarettes (or anything actually) as opposed to vaporizing it, given the health risks of smoking. I don't quite understand why someone would want to use tobacco at all to begin with, but that's a whole other thing...
Jake Yes, I think it is, it's got something called glycosomething, the vapour is definitely nicer to smoke, I don't like being addicted to tobacco but when I'm drinking I can't help myself. I guess it's because I grew up watching my mum and dad smoke and it just seemed normal to me then it turned into a social thing at college and now it's a habit of one or two a day, not good. The great thing about e-cigs is that you can control the nicotine levels so you can ween yourself off and also the flavours are so cool, like black cherry, lemon meringue even chicken and you can mix your own flavours
Parsakoira Aw, sorry just keep at it, don't get disheartened
Both my parents smoked.
And, I tried smoking at around age 10 or 11-- never found any appeal.
God! I love drinkin'!
(At a responsible level, at appropriate times, of course. . .)
Don`t drink, don`t do drugs.
But man, do I love my morning cup of coffee and a smoke. Going through a pack a day, tho. Have no intention of smoking for the rest of my life, but for now...yea, OK, I admit, I`m addicted. And when I quit, it will have to be "cold turkey" style. No e-cigs here. But then again, this is the armpit of Europe, what would you expect?
On another note - I f#"%@! suck at making illustrations. I totally don`t get the shape of the body, and I`m having super hard time not only rotating it it space, but also keeping the proportions and symmetry of it while doing so. Ending in herp-derp looking characters. And they all look so...cute? Gawd...-___-`
Totally am hating myself and the rest of the world ATM.
Must eat something.
In a few weeks I can legally drink in the US, but I've never liked the taste of alcohol to begin with. I'm a boring person.
Those e-cigarette things made me scratch my head when I first saw them. They sound like something from a parody of science fiction.
Just noticed the Banner for the Seven dollar sale for the Art Department videos has finally been replaced nearly two months after it was advertised to finish. Does that mean that CA finally has enough money to get 4.0 out the door?
OniRem, don't wait for the "right moment". Whenever she is free, tell her you like her and then ask her if she can go out with you sometime. If she rejects, that's okay, you can still ask her again eventually.
Speaking of mine, I fell for a friend whom I have known casually for three years. All I knew was that we were very comfortable around each other. Ironic that the first conversation we had together was actually an aggressive fight. Who would have guessed that something like this would happen between us? (:
Well, i just hope it will go smoother than that ... -.-
I dont know how guys approach the ladies to ask them out, but I am just gonna suck it up and approach her when she is by herself and just ask her.
and after this is all over and whatever the her answer is,
I am gonna go drop dead somewhere!
I once went to Barnes and Nobles and asked a fat woman who works there if there were any animal anatomy books, her first response was "ew". My first impression on her comment was me thinking why she was having nasty fantasies about the stuff she eats. Then another clerk stepped in, she wasn't as fat, and she laughed a bit. Then she told me where the hundred dollar veterinarian textbooks are. These people live in a small bubble.

The only thing I hate about buying used books is how the previous owners of non-fiction texts usually mark it up from whenever they used them for a report or something.
Get a notepad, don't ruin the book! Why do people do that?
The clerk asked if I was going to use the Great Depression book I bought for an "art project" or something. (I wear my SCAD ID around my neck when I'm out and about.)
Uh...I guess? As research.
I can't shake the feeling that he thinks I'm gonna tear it apart to make a weird sculpture out of it or something.

Been trying to get on with a caricature commission but I keep swinging between an unconvincing "I can do this, I can do this" to a more convincing " I suck! I should give up drawing"
I hate this crisis of confidence period, I think it's because I'm mainly problem solving which is frustrating and I'm on a deadline which sucks. I'm going to have a break from doing commissions after this..no..no more...for a while.
