Project For Awesome <3

This inspirational event has led to much emotion.
I am so glad at what a wonderful community I’m part of.
I will definitely make a video for it next year.
Such a great cause.
I will also try to donate to it.
Also, planning is required for the late night.
I need sleep!

Best wishes.

12 days to Doctor Who

DSC_0030I has red hair!
I’m currently watching Doctor Who and now I feel sad. 12 days to go!

Ummm…. Writing… Stuff… Hmmm… 

I played a large portion of Portal 2 yesterday. I wanted to replay it, so I did in one day.

Brain blank.
Goodbye.

Thank you, subconscious

Some time ago, I had a dream about a person.
It was rather odd. I was at my school and there this person was.
He was an interesting character. I still marvel at what a complex personality my mind created. I had a strong friendship with this person. My subconscious created a person that I could relate to. Someone I viewed as a strong friend. Someone who doesn’t exist. 
This muddled my head up for a while. It led to many speculations on what reality and what is the dreamt up world. Who is to say that this friend of mine doesn’t exist.
Perhaps he is not of the physical world, but he exists in my head.
I can naturally assume that you, as my reader, must think I am mentally ill at this moment. I have a friend who exists in my head? Isn’t that a sign of insanity? Perhaps it is. Well, I welcome insanity. It seems to make life more fun. More interesting.
I just have a lot of speculation on this matter at the moment.
I forgot about Alexo for a long time, but the memory of this artificially created personality surfaced in my thoughts again just recently. I must seem incredibly silly.
Why did I create this person?
Was he supposed to go into a book? Will his character surface at some point in my life? What is his purpose to my mind?
Here I sit, speculating over a figment of my imagination.
What is my life?
Friends that don’t exist. Why?
Am I creating scenarios in my head so as not to endure through real life ones and face heartache? Is my brain a coward to the real world?
So many questions that lie without answers all as a result of someone who doesn’t even exist.

Goodbye

-sigh of relief-

Well, this is odd.
I have ended my first year of high school. What a baffling concept.
I must have just gotten so used to being a Grade 8 that it seems surreal to be free from it now. It feels many years have passed since I first walked through the Grade 8 gate. I remember the shock of it all. Everything seemed big and confusing and unnatural. Now I can casually enter that gate without any of the nervousness I felt. Funny how much life changes.
I plan on doing something – just a little something- about 2011. It has been a turning point in my life in so many ways. 2011 has been the epicenter of the awesome that my life shall embrace. Also, epicenter has “epic” in it. I like that.
I know that Grade 8 is still a small grade to accomplish in high school, but it has been the beginning of high school, apparently the best years of one’s life.
I discovered so much in life and I was shown so much of the hidden awesome that I had been missing out on for so long due to being held hostage in a world that bred worldsuck.
Leaving my primary school was one of the best things that has happened to me for a long time. Sure, it may not have been a terrible school and I think I received a decent education there, but socially, I was in a nest of cruel hearted, disgusting excuses for human beings.
I don’t know what it was, but that school was a carrier of the mean disease. I am aware that saying “mean” seems puerile and odd, but that is plainly what they were.
I thank whatever great being that is potentially nonexistent for bestowing unto me the gift of freedom from the mean virus.

But now I move on.
My current school is wonderful. Sure, there are still mean people, but they are fewer and further between. They have no ability of spreading the mean virus. I have also found myself living in a small bubble-universe that sits on the outer edge of the main soul of my school in which I have marvelous adventures in the mind. My little world contains YouTube, Nerdfighters, Charlie McDonnell, all of my friends, the most awesome people I know, my amazing parents – without whom I could never have survived the world of hate I used to belong to – and much Doctor Who.

Umm, I lost my train of thought on this now so I’ll end it here.

Time to write a blog, it seems

So, I would give this post a proper title, with the intent on actually sticking to that topic, but I suffer from a little something called Popcorn Brain, and am unable to keep to a topic.

I return to school tomorrow to receive my report card. Then I am free.
The end of this year has been both feared and sought after.
I have so much I wish to do over the holidays and I can’t wait to get started.
I should also have red hair by Sunday, so that’s a thing.

I must go now.
It be late.
I be tired.

YO.

Okay, byeeeee

The Past

Have you ever looked back at things you wrote when you were younger?
Whenever I do, I can’t help but think how juvenile everything I said was.

I guess, it’s just how life goes.
When I read this in the future, I’ll wonder what was happening in my head. I will question my motives. I will marvel in a world of confusion at how weird I was.
Well, this is to you, me from the future.

Hi.
I know what you’re probably thinking. I seem so silly. I have such a weak vocabulary in comparison to yourself. I am inexperienced in life and I seem… odd?
I can only hope that you are a Nerdfighter still. I don’t know how much you like Chameleon Circuit or Charlie now. You’ll probably read this a few times over the years and I’m sure you will be able to mark your way through life, watching yourself change and grow as an individual. I am interested in going that way, seeing that path. I wonder what I will be like at 16. Will I go to university? What will the life of 21 year old Sinead hold? Will I still have the friends I had at 14 when I am 25? What profession will I be in at 30? Will I have books published? What location will I occupy at 32? Where will I be living? Will I still have an interest in the internet? Or drawing? Writing? What if I spend the rest of my days doing menial tasks, wasting away in an office? Will I ever be a professional vlogger? Will I ever become so good at video making that I’ll earn money from it?
There are so many questions, but I prefer not to dwell in the past or future, but rather focus on the present. I can’t change the past and I don’t know what colour bricks lay my path for the future. So, let me enjoy the present.
Thank you.

This has changed from a letter to myself to a random jumble of questions about my future.

Hatsune Miku

I am amazed.
Our world is changing in ways one would never even imagine.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTXO7KGHtjI
That video is to what I am referring.


How can a singer -a pop star- be an anime character?
A series of lights are projected onto glass panels, creating an effect of 3 dimensionality.
How does she sing?
Her voice is created using electronically generated sounds, imitating voice and sound.
She is , in essence, a hologram.
I don’t fully grasp the concept of dancing around to a hologram. I think it fascinating, yes, but it is also incredibly terrifying. I can feel myself becoming obsolete, as one with an aspiration to entertain via music or literature. Robotics will take the lead in modern society and humans will just be the things that got them started, only to become the wastes or space, taking up their precious time and space.
What does the future of humanity hold?
Will we have any use in a 100 years time?
How great will the advances of robotics be by then?

I both adore and abhor this concept.

I am honestly one who enjoys anime and manga, but I don’t think that our musical entertainment should be taken by it. I would much rather listen to music created by the voicebox of a living, breathing human (though, not all of them) than anything generated by a computer.
Some music does work better if generated by electronics, like dubstep, for example. That, however is not anything that involves actual singing.
I also don’t think that people sound better when they auto-tune themselves. It is just fake and annoying. All I can think it, “That isn’t your voice. That is a computer.”

These are just some opinions about this matter from me.

Goodbye and DFTBA

Chair = Murder Weapon

Dear Stupid People Of The World,

This is coming to you from someone who actually thinks before they speak.
Don’t go around saying something and getting someone’s hopes up and then crush them like a burnt leaf to ash. Think about the consequences of your actions.
Also, don’t put that thing in your mouth. It may kill you.
You can’t do something and then just expect it to vanish when you wish so. You have a certain responsibility in life and you must be aware of it.
I am angry. If you’ve been stupid or thoughtless, I am angry at you. If you’ve done something big and important before thinking of the consequences, I am angry at you.
Also, if you’re not one for thinking, I will set the zombies on you and they shall devour your innards.
Or I will kill you with a tray. I will hack at your neck with the thin bits until the blood flows across the canteen floor.
Actually, death by chair seems best. Death by chair it shall be.
Please, go die in a hole if you are that ignorant and stupid that you mess with the lives of others either mentally or physically.

Sincerely,
someone with a brain. (not to be eaten. Take theirs, they don’t use theirs anyway)

I apologise for the anger and violence witnessed in some segments of this post.
I was angry at one person in particular and the anger at the other stupid people rose to the top.
Dearest reader, that anger was not aimed at you.

Goodbye.

Fake Glasses Girl

The school term. It be over…
Nearly.
I return for one day next Friday to receive my report card and enjoy a day of spending money for a market day.
Also, don’t forget community service this coming week. That’s always a joy… right?

Hehe, I have a new message tone on my phone that makes me laugh.
Whenever I get a message from an angry Nimisha, this noise plays. I am supposed to feel sympathy for her for a story I shall elaborate on shortly, but when this noise plays, I just burst out laughing.
The story of her anger.
Fake glasses girl is her name. I don’t know her real name.
Nimisha went to school with her last year. She is still forced to see this girl very often.
Her name is Fake Glasses Girl because she spent R5000 on a pair of fake glasses to be a stupid poser freak. She also said that Charlie was gay. She is a constant torment on Nimisha’s life and tonight I was notified of Nimisha’s forced presence at this person’s party. And SMS from a distraught Nimisha read, “There are sluts all over the place… wearing fake glasses.” Pity her soul. 

Well, that’s a story about the mortal enemy of my friend. My poor, poor friend.

Noting the existence of nothing

Okay, so I mentioned that collab I’m in in my last post. Now I tell everyone about it.

http://www.youtube.com/user/nothingcollab

Claudy, Sinead and Mareike. Three teens from around the world (The UK, South Africa and Germany) vlog about their lives. We are going to form a friendship that will last over the sea. I think we will enjoy this thoroughly and it will be very cool(like).

Also, have my main channel.
http://www.youtube.com/user/zoemew 

Yeah, I’m so groovy I get to say “here’s my main channel” now. I have a main and second channel now. Channels are cool.

Can you tell I’m excited for this?

 

Also, Nathan’s theory on nuclear power. Just for the lols.

This shall be no different.
Exams began. Some stress included.
I have a collab now. Collabs are cool.

You are a melon.
I made a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUcCOX19h-s&feature=feedlik

They must be rather happy with us. We spent $42. The perfect number. ^_^

Errm. Uhh. What else???

I have friends from all over the world now.
And a 16 year old girl from Sweden owns me, apparently.
I am also one of the Doctor’s children and I’m the sister of the Ungodly Deity.
I follow the Shrine of the Ungodly Deity.
I am part of the Pure Embodiment of Awesome group on Facebook.
I have made my first friend on Facebook that I’ve never met in real life.
She’s in my collab. ^_^

I gained a friendship with Wheezy Waiter on YouTube. That was cool(like).
I also have a Wall Of Stuff.
Uhh, what else?

I also emailed Charlie twice. Not some stalkery way, though. I suggested a video idea and I sent him a picture that Nimisha and I drew of Sons of Admirals. It’s really funny:
SonsofAdmirals...SortOf

Oh, a new girl at our school, Lindsey, is American, knows about Charlie, is a Nerdfighter, is totally awesome, can draw and seems reall cool. She is now a friend.
I should make a post explaining my friends. It may take a while.
I made lots of friends.
Also, my blog/vlog about 2011 is going to be epic. This year was a fantastic turning point in my life. I am so incredibly glad that this year happened.

Procrastination Ends… tomorrow

I should be labelled a Professional Procrastinator.
Here are my main methods of procrastination (in no particular order):

  • Watching YouTube videos.
  • Cleaning random things (cleaning earphones; removing old glue from glue bottles/tubes; cleaning my phone or glasses etc.)
  • Taking photos of things
  • Writing lists like this
  • More internet things (check email or twitter or Facebook)
  • Drawing
  • Staring idly into space
  • Thinking about things I’ve already pondered about
  • Learning random stuff (juggling; sign language; video editing; playing instruments I don’t even own etc.)

That’s about it, although there are plenty of them I have not discussed. And now I resume studying.

About Me

They tell you to say something about yourself all over the internet. Well, on the awesomeness of Nerdfighters, this is me.

I am of the age 42 divided by 6 multiplied by 2.
I exist on both Gallifrey and in Nerdfighteria. I am also forced to occupy some space on Earth in which I partake in a common education system.
I will occasionally turn on a camera with hopes of creating a video blog, without much luck. I also do the written blog thing sometimes.
I don't really enjoy leaving my house, besides the mental way, by connecting with this world of awesome known as the internet, particularly YouTube and Nerdfighteria.
Despite going by the name zoemew (Zoe, an awesome name, but not my own, plus Mew, the sound of small felines and the 151st Pokemon), people in the physical world (that I still believe is all a computer generated dream) insist on referring to me as Sinead.
Also, I like using brackets and I find objects with which we scribble shapes known as words extraordinarily fascinating. Also, I get extremely annoyed with people who abuse the English language. if you pronounce the "t" in often, you lose many points, just so you know.
I won't make this too long, but congratulations to you if you've read this all through, instead of TL;DRing it. Thanks for that.
Now a sentence happens. Did you know that reading this only wastes time in your life that you could use on watching a YouTube video? It's a pleasure.


Well, there is a brief overview of zoemew as just written on Nerdfighters.

NaNoWriMo

So it started 3 days ago. I have written so few words I doubt I will win this year. At least I’m on a Young Writers account still so I can choose my wordcount. I have aimed for a (wishfully thought) 20 000 word story. I can see myself only completing half of that.

Ugh!

Exams come soon as well. I need to focus on those much more than my NaNoWriMo story. I haven’t vlogged in forever. Life is confusing.

He’s the dead one, but he isn’t dead.

This heading is a line of pure brilliance from a story written by the 12 year old version of a close friend of mine, Claudia, in a book she attempted to write and is now attemting to remake it.

As nice as Summer is, I have some things I really don’t like about it:

  1. Ants
  2. Extreme heat
  3. Being unable to drink hot tea for fear of melting
  4. ANTS
  5. Other bugs
  6. Being unable to dress with long clothing for extended periods of time
  7. THE FREAKING ANTS
  8. Not even the cold, fresh water stays cold for long
  9. Exams happen
  10. You are expected to visit friends more, meaning less internet time (oh wait, I don’t care)
  11. You guessed it, the ants.

Anything remotely sweet seeming becomes overloaded and now, in my annoyance, every little tickle I feel, I think there are ants covering my body. *shudder*

I am already not the biggest fan of bugs, but when it come to the ants, I kinda freak out.

Also, on the extreme heat thing. I live in South Africa, so it gets really hot. We are currently in the middle of a heat wave, making all the more uncomfortable. We are also in desperate need of rain. Please let it rain soon.

Okay, Summer rant over!
Back to the interesting things.

Did you know that I am a professional procrastinator?
I meant to tell you a month ago but never got round to saying so. Well, finally, I fought my procrastination and, firstly) I made a blog AND a vlog (coming soon) and secondly) I worked on studying for my upcoming exams that I am SO looking forward to.
(If you didn’t recognise the sarcasm in the previous statement, here is me pointing it out to you)

So, yeah.

I won’t make this too long for your sake –ohmygodthere’sabugonmyshoulder!!
It’s okay, I flicked it off, but I think it was biting me.

Have something enlightening to think about

“As I type this, I grow closer to death. We constantly run along this thin, short path that is life. I must question this as I write, however, as we are constantly fixated on what is to come. The end. The darkness. The final moment. We unfortunately lose the thought of the middle, the highlight that has yet to come… living. The life that has yet to be lived. A thousand laughs to be shared. A thousand tears to be shed. A thousand thoughts to be construed. And so many heartbeats.
I refuse to give in to the overbearing, looming destiny we all have to endure through. I shall rather experience the full potential life has to give to me. This opportunity, this advantage, this gift. This life is not a given right, as said before. I have no superiority because of my life. I should use it with care and cherish every waking moment. I need to see what I should see and experience all the joys, pleasures and excitements that life has to offer and I shall never turn away a life-changing opportunity because of someone else. I believe that the universe has its own cryptic ways of communicating its lessons to us. They may be truly awful and may take great periods of time to understand and reach, but I’m still young and I’m sure I’ll learn what I must in due time.
I have so many seconds to live. I have so many moments to experience. They may appear negative or embarrassing or saddening, but, over time, all lingering negativity will fade and I will be revealed to have had a fairly good life. May the odds always be in my favour through everything I have to still experience. I have so much life left to live before the inevitable end, but I am not afraid.
So many years, so many tears, so much love and so much to love. Let me dance my way through life with grace and beauty and may I come out the other side mostly unscathed, but let me have some battle wounds to share with the next generation.
This isn’t the end, or even the beginning of the end. It is merely the beginning of the adventure of life. “

I just thought I should share some of my thoughts on life with you.

I now think in portals.

Okay, so I did actually go to Rage, so that was nice.
I did not, however, find Portal 2 though. I, instead, found it at a Look & Listen at Hyde Park.
I have been playing it constantly since I bought it on Saturday.
I had a party of a friend to attend before I could play any Portal so, naturally, I wished the party to end every second it persisted in lasting. We just sat there and watched Red for the entirety of the thing and I was lucky enough for my lovely, game enjoying parents to collect me 15 minutes early. Hooray for me then.
And as the title of this post says, I now think in portals. Portals even appeared in my strange dreams last night. I don’t remember much but I do remember a bit about Charlie, so that was nice.
On the topic of Charlie, I’m actually writing this post because of my brains persistence of filtering said British vlogger into my every waking thought. I think my head is saying, “Insert Charlie into ALL the thoughts” as is the internet meme.
I am in disbelief at how my life has changed so drastically between June and now. Though it is a rather long period of time to the close minded, it’s actually really short. My entire life has changed. My tastes in music have changed. My friends have changed. My internet life has expanded so dramatically. Additionally, many of my thoughts are occupied by one of the oddest things me from a year ago would perceive it as. A boy. Particularly, a boy who I have never actually met IRL. Charlie. *sigh*
How have I come to a state in my life in which I spend nearly every waking moment thinking about a person I’ve never actually met. It’s worse than a celebrity crush because he’s not overly famous. He is simply a 21 year old (as of Saturday) with a camera and some truly groovy ideas (littleradge would be proud).
Aside from the fact that I’ve formed a crush on a near-stranger, my views on life have changed recently. For example, glasses. I wanted contact lenses before because I didn’t really want to wear glasses because I thought I looked bad in them. And I never would have considered nerdy glasses. But after joining Nerfighters I have realised the pure awesomeness that sits behind those glass plates enshrouded in plastic or metal.
Another example, I felt so much more inspired in life after finding the phrase DFTBA. I never thought about how important it is to just simply be awesome. So don’t ever, ever, ever forget to be awesome. That’s why I wear in on my wrist. See it here:
100_0220 
So, really, I have to say a few thanks.
Thanks to the vlogbrothers. Without them, my life would be empty and I would never have found the pure pride in nerdyness that I now have.
http://www.youtube.com/user/vlogbrothers

Thank you to Charlie for giving me so many laughs and much learningness in your Fun Science videos. Also, thanks for giving me Chameleon Circuit. I would have no musical interest without it.
http://www.youtube.com/user/charlieissocoollike 

Thanks to Chameleon Circuit in general, for producing the most awesome music on the planet!
http://www.youtube.com/user/nerimon 
http://www.youtube.com/user/littleradge?blend=1&ob=4 
http://www.youtube.com/user/eddplant?blend=1&ob=4 
http://www.youtube.com/user/michaelaranda?blend=1&ob=4 

And yes, I am just linking a bunch of Youtubers, but without the Youtube, I wouldn’t be anywhere near as happy as I am. I also don’t think I’d be the same person as I am without the Youtube.

I think I generally have to thank the BBC and all the creators of Doctor Who for all of the above, though.
I mean, I found Charlie because of his video about Fish Custard. I found the vlogbrothers because KristinDotCom mentioned DFTBA in one of her videos causing me to search it and find the Nerdfighters. So basically, thanks KristinDotCom. Thanks for nearly my entire life. And I found her because of a Sims 3/ Doctor Who video she made that included Chameleon Circuit, leading me to watch the rest of her vids. Wow, that’s quite a trail. 
http://www.youtube.com/user/KristinDotCom 

So, basically, Doctor Who gave me my life. Funny how it all links back to Doctor Who, isn’t it?

And that must be the end now.
f you read all of that, congratulations. I’m not even ever going to read that, so really, congratulations if you did. If you didn’t, I won’t hold it against you.

Destroy ALL the things!

I hate technology.

I just finished a whole hour to two hours of work on my latest vlog, wishing Charlie a happy birthday when Movie Maker decided to crash and obliterate all my work. All that video recording was for nothing now because I refuse to restart that now. The camerawork done by a friend of mine was already bad and the sound cut off the end of what people were saying and my own beginning part was really bad. It’s dark and I’m too quiet.
Sad.

Additionally, to worsen my mood, I feel as though I’m coughing up a lung. This is worrying my parents, nearly preventing me from going to the thing I’ve been looking forward to all of September. Rage. Games, consoles, tech, computery stuff, nerd stuff. Awesomeness in one, basically. And now my chance of going have been slimmed.

The rest of my day was actually quite pleasant. It’s break-up day for all the governmental South African schools, so I have a week to chill now. Then it’s fourth term, in which I have finals, lots of work and much upsetness in general.
Because of break-up day, I went home with Giulia and we began watching Across The Universe, which was interesting. Oh, and she wants me to marry her 12 year old brother, an occurrence that will never happen. She’s so weird.

Tomorrow is Doctor Who!

This week is never-ending. I can’t even remember when Monday happened.

Now to go read the Hunger Games and hold a terrible grudge on everything again.

It’s almost over!

September. Doctor Who. School term. Charlie’s year of 20.

I need to still finish my birthday video for him. Ahh. He’s 21 on the 1st of October.

I’m currently reading this thing:
hunger games 
The Hunger Games is a great page turner that I have not been able to put down since I began it yesterday. Despite the slight disturbing post apocalyptic atmosphere in which teenagers are pressured to participate in a game in which they must kill each other on national television, it is thrilling and brilliant. I will definitely continue the trilogy.

Yet another day of absence for me as I am ill.

I am sitting at the edge of my metaphorical seat in desperation for the finale episode of Doctor Who coming this Saturday.
Gosh, Saturday is going to be such a busy day for me.
I have to get my passport really early in the morning from the home affairs office. Then I’m going to Rage, a video games and computer convention for which I am extremely excited. Then I shall attend the joint birthday party of two friends from school. I also need to post my birthday video for Charlieissocoollike. I would also like to see some of the live streaming from StickAid to see Charlie live. Then I still need to see Doctor Who somewhere in that busy schedule.

Now to watch a large amount of Youtube videos just to finish off my day. I have recently found wheezywaiter and have become hooked on his comedy. So fascinating.

And another thing, I fecently forgot how to spell decision. That is the brilliance of my friends and I.

Aah! Another thing! Over this 10 day holiday I have to make a poster about war and because I’m such a nerd, I’m doing my project on the war against the Doctor.

Hello Mrs. Paper Cat.

So, I seem to be bored.
Or I’ve had a massive intake of sugar.
I think it’s both.
Just look at what I have posted to Facebook recently.
“Don't you think the tissue is making sense, Mr. Ukulele mug? Paint and highlighters are such pretty flavours.”
“‎80% on a cycle test. The kettle fairies will be proud. Stormaggedon and the art gallery are in much agreement on the creation of purple. Why, thank you Mr. Circle-Box.”
WORDS OF WISDOM

So…
Ginger or red???

Medicine is funny. It sings funny pencils about cat mugs and eating cupboards. Pencils are friends, not food.
Smile, smile smile…
Hello! It’s Miss Paperclip! She says the rain is very dry today. Don’t you agree?
No, that is not a worm on my pencil. It’s a pencil on my worm.

Let’s go outside and think in the box, shall we?

And that concludes a short session of my insanity.
Will this week ever end? Will x fall in love with y? Stay tuned till next time to find out all about our drastic tales.

On a side note, I am really, really, REALLY looking forward to Doctor Who on Saturday because we finally know whether the Doctor dies or not.
Saturday, why are you so evasive?
I still need to make Charlie’s birthday video.

MUST BUY PORTAL 2!

Ok, so as not to bore you (ha!), I’ll say goodbye now since I could carry on all night.

Picture time!

Hi, I haven’t posted in a little while.
This post is coming in a written part and some pictures will follow.
Firstly, I’m sick. I’ve been coughing and my lungs are sore.
Secondly, I am getting a proper ukulele soon which makes me a happy cat.
Thirdly, today is Doctor Who Saturday, which makes me an even happier cat.
I have decided on several things as well recently.
For example, my hair colour over December. This red that belonged to Charlieissocoollike:
charlie's hairIt’s such an awesome colour.
Another decision is this: I want to play the game Portal 2. It looks awesome. Time to start looking for it.
More decisions, ah! I’m glad that we’re moving to Germany now. (Oh by the way, we’re moving to Germany) The motivation for this is that I’ll be closer to the UK and I’ll be able to find more Whovians and Nerdfighters.
Okay, enough decisions for today. More random happy items and stuff.
Have I mentioned that Chameleon Circuit is AWESOME??? Well, they are!
In other news, I found a Star Wars LEGO book yesterday at the local bookshop. It has LEGO blocks in it and you can build a little Clone Wars era clone and a battle droid and some cute little spaceships and tanks. I have built 2 of them.
100_0076Here they are among my Doctor Who and my drawing books and stuff.
I also took a little collection of photographs with my new camera, so here they are:
100_0066100_0080
100_0081100_0089100_0091100_0092100_0093100_0094100_0107100_0112100_0113100_0114100_0117100_0120100_0122100_0130100_0168100_0170100_0171Yes, it’s all very random, just like me.

So I think that concludes today’s blog post. I hope to soon have vlogs as well.

Today is Christmas.

I have officially reinstated today as Christmas.
My Chameleon Circuit CDs and T-shirt arrived along with my DFTBA wristband. I also got a camera, with which I took this picture:
100_0006
I am currently wearing my Still Got Legs T-shirt as well.
I also got a ukulele! Sure, it’s not the best ukulele in the world, but it’s a temporary one. It also has some whacky, awesome Engrish on it. The above picture is of this awesome musical instrument.
I am very happy.
Additionally, I have some friends over today to sleep over and watch some awesome movies. Two of which are already here.
Gotta go and have some fun now!

Parktown Politics

For English, on the topic of fairy-tales, we had to make little TV show interviews for our class. On the whole it was funny, but what added to the hilarity of the situation was that, since we had to choose an existing character and bring them to life, some people were placed in odd situations. For example, I was Gretel from Hansel and Gretel. Then, a friend of mine played the witch that Gretel kills in an oven. So, basically, I pushed my friend into an oven. Another hilarious example was that my friend Claudia played Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. Then, another girl played the prince that Cinderella married who was now divorced due to Jack stealing Cinderella away from him/her (just for context, I am at an all-girls school). When she said that we all looked at Claudia and she just shrunk away into her table, seemingly guilty for something she hadn’t done. So that is the politics of my school.

I am finally expanding my social life by about a centimetre. I am having a sleep over with my friends, but nothing all weird and girly like one would expect. Rather, we are going to chill in the lounge and watch awesome movies. I’m really excited. Unfortunately, I have SO many projects to complete/work on before then.

I am glad to say that we have ordered the Chameleon Circuit albums from DFTBA records and I am waiting in hope for the day to come. Since I ordered it over a week  ago and the orders out of the USA take between 14 and 30 days, I have less than a month now before I see the CD’s, a Still Got Legs T-shirt and a DFTBA wristband. Yay!

Oh, by the way, I’m currently writing a book. I think it’ll be great, when finished, whenever that will be. It’s called The Secret Diary Of A Spontaneous Shape-Shifter. So excited for it to be finished. But no spoilers just yet.

I am currently reading I Am Number Four and as good as the story is, the writing is not that good. I always love a good Sci-fi, but lets be realistic now. A planet 5 times smaller than Earth has huge people larger than humans and their planet is twice as big as the main characters home planet. Oh and apparently, this author does not realise how BIG the universe is and seems to believe that there are only 18 life sustaining planets in the ENTIRE universe. C’mon, let’s be realistic here. How is that possible? But besides that, I think it’s quite okay and it’s an easy read. I definitely won’t recommend it to someone who is looking for a long, challenging read though. 

That’s it for this evening.
4 days to the next episode of Doctor Who. The previous two have been great, by the way.

I can’t think of a proper title.

I haven’t posted in a while.
I have been working on my art and culture project. We have to make a stop-motion music video for a song of our choice and I have been working hard on that. I had to sculpt clay people and create backgrounds. This is a lot of work. I don’t see myself becoming a sculptor when I am older.

I have only 5 days to wait before I can see more of Doctor Who! I am really excited for that. The upcoming episode, Let’s Kill Hitler seems really interesting, from what I have gathered of the storyline, so far. From all the little clips and interviews with the actors and actresses, I have gathered a small portion of what is going to happen. Unfortunately, I haven’t been so lucky with any other episodes.

I am currently hoping that my wonderful mother will order the Chameleon Circuit albums. Then I have to wait between 14 and 30 days. Ugh!

For school today we had to do class dances. They were frustrating and we were unnecessarily shouted at. Damn school, but I won’t go on about that.

Oh, have I mentioned? 5 MORE DAYS!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, that’s that then.

<insert cat here>

I have 18 days to wait until Doctor Who returns to my screen and this will create a very happy Sinead.
I have only 3 days, however, to wait until I can see my parents again after their trip to Germany.
I have realised why August sucks.
-We have school projects.
-You wait for lots of stuff. It's like this month is just there to fill time and make you wait.
-Its still too cold to go out, but it gets too warm to stay indoors all the time.
-The winter flu still sticks around.   
-Its windy.
-Summer is still just around the corner.
-Its either too dry or it rains so much, you’re swimming.

As you may have gathered, I don’t really like August.

So I have now decided I shall also start vlogging (video blogging), but I need a proper camera first.
I have also decided I want a ukulele and I will learn how to play my first musical instrument,
I have ALSO decided I shall be dyeing my hair over the December holidays. I just have to think about what colour. I’m trying to decide between ginger and blood-red.
Ginger because it works with my freckles, and blood-red because it’s cool.
Hmmm…

I think that’s it.

Look out for the bleh bleh bleh!

Yeah, that’s from Charlie the Unicorn, a current crazy internet craze of mine.
The full intent of this post was not, in fact, for the confusion of my readers. I was however intent on expressing a poem I recently wrote for school. We are working on personification.
The Moon.
I feel like a feather
While I swim up in space.
I express my emotions
as I cry out my light.

I love the attention,
as people gaze at my pale, freckled face.
I love the appreciation,
for my white-blonde waves of bright hair.

I am loyal to Earth,
so I follow it around,
wherever it takes me,
I stay by its side.

We ski between planets,
and up through the sky,
we go all places together,
I feel drawn to Earth.

I feel so powerful,
standing in the sky
bending in the heavens,
causing oceans to collide.

I am the moon,
so great and bright,
a shiny white marble,
illuminating the sky.

I fly in orbit,
across the blue,
I replace the sun,
as I chase down the night.

I am the moon.

 

So, yeah, that was the moon, in all her glory. In a poem.
I am feeling sad this week. My parents are in Germany for this week and next. I miss them.

I also still have 24 days to wait until I can cheer myself up with some of the best: Doctor Who.
That’s sad.

That’s it, I guess.

Sucker Punch is awesome because I dream of pac-man

(^ N reference)

I have much sad in me today.
Parents are in Germany and this is the beginning of a two week period of sad, sad and more sad.

I don’t think I shall be saying much today.

That’s about it.

Why do we wait so long???

Okay, the wait needs to end now.
I am having serious Doctor Who withdrawals.
I even had a dream about it the other night.
Please, someone make this wait END ALREADY!
My weeks feel incomplete without the Doctor on my screens and I have out-watched my season 5 DVD already. This is truly AWFUL!
*exasperated sigh of suspense*
(Oh wow, I just had a serious moment of Deja Vu, that was WEIRD)
Oh, damn, I just lost the game!
Okay, it’s noon on a Sunday and it’s sunny, I should be outside now.
Bye
S

Oh, hi there, this is a blog post, as you know.

Yeah, not much to say really. I have done just about nothing in the past few days that can be mentioned with any interest.
Basically, school, work and stuff, get angry with humans, express love for cats and laugh with certain friends.
Oh, and get upset about having Zulu twice in one week, a subject I currently despise at school as I have never spoken a word of it in my life before. Oh, and we now have to act out some stupid skit for this subject, despite the painfully obvious fact that it doesn’t even count towards our grades. At all! Now the teacher wants us to do some whacked up “professional” acting thingy-ma-bobby for a subject that will in NO way benefit our school careers.
I am only getting out of this okay because the other three of five members of my group already speak the language.
More on the projects topic. We have to do a stop-motion animation music video for a song of our choice. Working with N, we have chosen aforementioned the Sweet Dream (are made of this)  Emily Browning cover for the most underrated movie ever, Sucker Punch.
I think that will be a fun project.
I was supposed to get an early night tonight. Oh well, so much for that.
I am quite tired though.
Um, thinking, thinking, thinking. What was I gonna say.
Oh, yeah. I think I mentioned this before in previous posts, but my friend Claudia and I have decided to create a geeky and AWESOME T-shirt brand called G-SiC. or just SiC. This being a play on the beginning letters of our names, “Si” from Sinead and “C” from Claudia (pronounced Cloud – ia [I had to include that]). Oh, and the G is from our very artistic friend (much like ourselves) Giulia (pronounced like Julia, to those unsure of her name) who would help with some designs for T-shirts. We are also gaining ideas from N who has come up with the whackest stuff. For example, she says, “Sucker Punch is awesome because I dream of Pac-Man ( a mix up of some of her FB statuses). Also, while playing hangman (I know, random) we had some letters on the side being NSM, and I said they looked like direction, like SSW or something. She then proceeded to exclaim, “It’s North-South-Monkey!”. I nearly died laughing. We had some other hang-man inspirations like, “Ear My Fry" (Its a long and complicated story regarding reading set-work for English) and “Pucker Sunch and Woctor Do” (Sucker Punch and Doctor Who!). We also have one that kills us every time. She gets Capri-Sun juice thingies (for lack of a better word) and on the front it says, “For Active Kids” and then a bit lower it says, “Orange and other fruits”, but my mind went ballistic and read, “For Active Kids and other fruits” leading to the question of, “How Are They Linked???”, but that is just the vocal point o the hilarity of the whole conundrum, despite it’s lack of even being a conundrum (dunno why I said that in the first place) (and yes, this is a strange tangent I’m going on, isn’t it). After reading my previous in-bracket comments I think of how I should make foot-notes in books, which leads my memory on a trail including N, where I mentioned the foot-noted in the book I’m reading (Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman). My mind goes on the weirdest tangents, I know. But, back to the whole “Active kids and other fruits” (hahaha) thing, I then think of a newer rendition of it. “For active fruits and other kids”, because that just throws all sense of sanity out the brick wall, because windows are too mainsteam, as Hipster Kitty says (if you don’t know what that is, Google it!)
Aw, I just lost the game, and this whole post was meant to be a distraction. If you don’t know what that is, Google that as well, or don’t, for some mental stability and reassuring sanity.
And, yes, this IS what you get when I say there isn’t much to say, at 1:25 AM.
My poor spellcheck feels so helpless today, with all the weird words I have invented here. (Also, SHAME ON YOU, SPELLCHECK, for not knowing the surnames Pratchett and Gaiman!)
I shall now type really fast:
fusgholbndsh8yugnrtjkghfnejiwgtoinmvgfdkj;omvkfhdnjdj
and that is what you get from that!
Ain’t it a masterpiece.
Woo, that was fun!
Despite all my crazy typings, and I know that isn’t a word, but whatever, I haven’t even gone onto all the stuff I found on StumbleUpon. My internet life is SO busy! But it isn’t really.
Argh, why are computers SO SLOW???????????????????
I now have one of my parent’s metal songs stuck in my head. Isn’t it weird that the parents love metal and the teenager doesn’t. Well, that’s just my family.
I now have a fringe and it looks kinda anime, which is AWESOME.
Also, on the topic of awesome, I was on Youtube, and as I mentioned before a person did a Doctor Who, Sims 3, Chameleon Circuit mix, that person is a Norwegian girl who I found the whole Nerdfighters from. And the urban dictionary definition of Nerdfighters is, “People who instead of being made up of cells and organs and stuff are actually made out of awesome.” and I like that.
So I am now a Nerdfighter. Oh, btw, they were invented (is that the word? Maybe founded? No, I don’t know! WHY IS THIS SO CONFUSING???!!! created? started? Okay, well, anyway) by the vlogbrothers on Youtube and the nerdfighters website address is nerdfighters.ning.com and anyone can join, isn’t that awesome. You just have to be awesome, and believe you are awesome (which you should anyway) to join.
Damn, I just lost the game again!
Okay, you are probably tired of reading now or you just TLDR’d this post.
I should probably end this off now.
Bye then

<insert witty title here>

Sleep. Need. Uh. School. Late. WHY?
As you can tell I am slightly (just extremely very) tired and have had little sleep recently. I guess I should be asleep right now but I wanted to make this post first. Then I’ll go sleep.

I started my third term of school, Grade 8, yesterday and I feel this week has been excruciatingly SLOW. I feel a week has passed yet has only been two days. The universe doesn’t like me. To make matters worse, because of how out school works, the Grade 8’s and 9’s have half a year of French and half a year of Zulu (an African language I have never learnt/spoken before). I am now on the latter. I learnt some phrases yesterday, but I I can’t, for the life of me, remember how they went. I am not supposed to be forced into learning a language like this. I will rather choose a language I want to speak and learn it by myself, like I’m doing with sign language. I have actually gotten pretty far with sign language, for a hearing person who has only done about an hour or two of learning.
Another downer of this week is that, to make up for two missed days of school, we have to end at 3:10 PM instead of 2:15 PM as usual. This is a whole other lesson of the day. I have to go through 11 more days of this. I don’t see I’m going to like it very much. Ugh!
Another downer. My parents leave for Germany next Friday, leaving me parentless for 2 weeks. At least I have my grandfather to look after me.
This week so far has also seemed to be quite bad for other people as well. Our car wouldn’t start this afternoon when my parents left work to fetch me from school, a family friend’s 2 month old kitten died suddenly of liver failure, everyone’s exhausted, it just isn’t a good week. I wonder who’s broken a mirror recently.
Oh, an d all my muscles are sore after ice-skating with J and friends for her birthday on Saturday. My knee also hurts as I fell quite bad on the ice. Ouch.

Okay, before I pass out on my laptop, I’m going to sleep.
Goodnight.

Time Travel and Stuff

I have recently been thinking about time travel. Of course this all corresponds to that brilliant thing I love so much, Doctor Who. I think, if we had to travel in time, we would alter the events of everything, even by just standing in a certain place or looking at a rock, or something. There is no way to escape changing the past, no matter how hard you try. Say, you go back to the time of horse-drawn carriages and cobblestones and stuff and you kick a rock across the street, you could have just moved a rock that tripped a horse, thus causing a fatal accident to whoever was inside. So, if that all happens by kicking a little rock, think about something more, like killing someone who wasn’t supposed to die (like the whole example of killing Hitler as a child). There is also a paradox linked to that. If you don’t know what paradoxes are, look it up or get an example here. The Grandfather Paradox is its name. Basically, if you had to travel in time and kill your grandfather (I really don’t know why you’re killing your grandpa anyway, but lets say you do) before your mum or dad was born, your whole time stream is erased, thus erasing you from history. Unfortunately, and this is where it gets confusing and extremely complicated, with your time stream being erased, you couldn’t have existed to kill your grandad in the first place. This means he now hasn’t died, leaving you time stream available to exist again. THIS means you have the ability to kill him again (well, not again, but in the first place), starting the WHOLE cycle over again. He dies, you don’t exist, he can’t have died, you live, he dies. I know, CONFUSING. There are other paradoxes with time travel as well, but I can’t remember them right now. I’m tired, OKAY? Look them up!

Ok, now I have gone on a nice long tangent about time travel for you to mull over, I shall move to the boring stuff. Oh, wait, I can’t actually think of anything boring right now.
I shall now give a quote from Doctor Who:
“Didn't anyone ever tell you? There's one thing you never put in a trap—if you're smart, if you value your continued existence, if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow—there's one thing you never ever put in a trap.
Me.” –The Doctor Season 5 Episode 4 Time of Angels.
Epic quote.
And there is an epic song that goes with that epic man.
I am the Doctor – Murray Gold.
Search it.

So, this blog post has taken 13 hours to write due to a power failure at about 3:30 AM in which I had to shut down my laptop. It was awful. I was like, “Um, hello, I’m still busy writing here!! I need the internet! Ugh!”

Today, having woken up at about 12:00AM, I got very little done. I did, however, manage to make a birthday card for my young friend, J, who has been mentioned before.
I also started working on the stencil for my TARDIS canvas which will look a bit like this:
Photo0053This is my Raygun Robyn messenger bag birthday present.
I think that’s it for now
Oh, besides the nearly finished picture I’m working on. Babydoll from Sucker Punch. She just needs the rest of the background, an arm and a face.

Laughing, disbelief and life in general

Lets start with the laughing part.
My friend N visited, although I may have already mentioned that. I was invited to my seemingly distant younger (sister-like) friend J’s birthday party, which came as a surprise to me as I haven’t received an invitation from her to this special occasion in quite a few years. So, yes, I am going ice skating at who-knows-where on Saturday. I can prepare myself for pain and wet jeans.
I am also going to South Africa’s version of comic-con on Saturday, called ICON. I think that could be kinda fun, and I’m hoping to find something Doctor Who related.
I am also trying out drawing a picture from my new favourite movie Sucker Punch, which is AWESOME, by the way. I will post the picture when finished.
This is the picture I am drawing from:
Babydoll Sucker Punch(In grayscale to get all the shading right)
Oh, and the “Life of Zoe” think has been shortened down to Zoe, but I have my doubs about it happening at all. Hmm…
Some more stuff to make me laugh recently, I found some vids on Youtube called the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, and the name just about explains it. Basically, two Scottish guys animate cute little sketches and songs with sock puppets. I found it through the Doctor Who fan page on FB.
And now for the disbelief, I’ll start light.
Why in the name of TARDIS are they making an ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE????????
I know, right? SERIOUSLY? A movie for some stupid, pointless application for Smartphones? SERIOUSLY? Where will any storyline come from THAT? All that EVER happens is you throw birds at pigs! But, it has been confirmed, a full film time animated movie will be shown to our poor, unsuspecting planet. Why on Gallifrey would they waste precious time and money on animating THAT, when they could put it to something with more purpose, and awesomeness, like Doctor Who, or improving Torchwood (by removing America). I really don’t believe these people. Seriously?
Our planet is insane.
So, as you may have gathered, I am in disbelief at the general population of our planet. It would seem that I am also disbelieving towards much of my generation, seeing the stuff they watch, the music they listen to and all the things they do.
But I shan’t elaborate further.

Oh, and I tried to paint little Union Jacks on my mails in nail polish. It turns out, it’s harder than it seems.

Mmm, tea. I love tea. It’s so soothing and relaxing. And warm for winter chills.

I think that’s the end now.

Cats

I have recently come to realise I have potential to grow into a crazy cat lady. I have always been absolutely in love with our adorable feline friends and I have noticed recently how much I like cats in comparison to others.
You see, certain friends of mine say they love cats, but they just love them for the cuteness, and they will squeal with delight at the sight of a cat or kitten.
I, however, feel I have certain characteristics in my personality that resemble that of a cat. For example, I am rather independent and will try to rely on no-one, just like cats. Sure, I like when people spend time with me, or maybe relaxing for some time, while someone looks after me, but I am generally quite independent. I also seem to shroud many of my emotions and feelings from others, until I really get to know them. I think they then feel as though I don’t want any sort of relationship with them, when I am actually just trying to build up trust, so I don’t get hurt. It is really just a defence mechanism. I also seem to get lost in my mind often and so I often appear distant and as though I repel any sort of deep conversations, but I am really just lost in my thoughts. I often see cats doing the same, gazing into space, often seeming unkind showing a face lost in thought. Of course, they may attack if their thoughts are disturbed, but wouldn’t anyone?
So, I have cat characteristics.
I guess, I can blame it on living with cats since I was a baby. I have had many cats in my life and I currently reside with a mildly insane, large, black and white Frank and a small, also seemingly insane, black and white Cleo.

We also have another pet in our odd family. This one is quite different to the other two


IMAG0006The Dude – he has grown a considerable amount since this picture was taken. He is now bigger than my hand!

Okay, now you’ve seen my pets, I must depart as I am awaiting the arrival of a friend, due to be here any minute now.

Some stuff, or something.

So, I am currently awake at 2:45AM and not tired, probably due to the fact that I woke up at 2:00PM today, and I now feel inspired to start a comic book series, written and illustrated by ME. I have high hopes for it. I think I’m gonna name it “The Life of Zoe”. Yes, I know, it’s not a very imaginative name, so i may change it. Hmmm…

On another topic, I recently found some stuff I quite enjoy. The stuff I mention is the brilliant music from the “Trock” (Timelord Rock) band, Chameleon Circuit. Now, this stuff, as it’s genre name suggests, is a bit (actually, a lot) related to Doctor Who (which I love dearly). I have listened to quite a lot of this stuff recently, as I am now following one of the band members on Twitter and Youtube. The young man in question goes by the name Charlieissocoollike, his real name being Charlie McDonnell. I first started following him when I came across a video of him explaining Doctor Who to the unknowing portion of the internet’s population. Then I just found more random Vlog (Video Blog) posts of his and then, before I knew it I was subscribed. I think he’s quite cool(like?), and he does some funny stuff, like paint himself purple or try to eat fish fingers and custard (from Doctor Who)(second video of his I saw) and he also says some funny stuff. But, best of all, he writes and sings songs, mostly in the band and sometimes alone. Some of his solo songs have been included in either of their albums (second one still due to be released), which I have asked my oh, so wonderful parents to import as we can’t buy them in SA. But, yeah, I have a new favourite band, which is another favourite of mine that is British. I have a new British obsession. I seem to have lost a lot of interest in the USA.
Something I found quite amusing recently on YouTube, was a video that someone made that included The Sims 3, Doctor Who and Chameleon Circuit playing in the background. I was convinced the creator of the video had read my mind, three of my favourite things in one video. Sure, the editing was bad and the quality could have been better, but it was still a cool find to make.

So, after much nagging from my mother, I have finally made arrangements to see a friend over the holidays. Crazy N is visiting on Friday. I think Mom just worries I’ll go insane, cooped up at home all three weeks I’m on holiday. At least I’m seeing SOME friends, unlike C, who doesn’t EVER respond. But it’s okay.

I recently watched the movie Sucker Punch and I think I have found a new type of movie that I LOVE! I thought it was awesome and some of the camera work and animations were just amazing. I love comic-book/video-game style movies. They are just phenomenally brilliant. So, I need to find more.

Okay, I think any more typing and my fingers will fall off, mostly due to the cold as it is 3:00 AM now. Wow, 15 minutes just to type all of the above.
Okay, I have to go now, before I lose a finger.
Bye

PS: SHIVER!!! Brrrr…

The Sims 3

Another favourite of mine.
This is a simulated reality game in which one controls one or many members of a family/household in their general daily activities. This is the third version of the game, with better graphics and more available to be done than the first two versions.
Each sim (simulated being) has a plumbob above their head, indicating they are the selected character and the plumbob is the game’s general logo.
Here is a plumbob:
Simple_Plumbob_by_sk8_element
Here is a screenshot from the game:
cats
Here is the CD cover:
881085-61n2m8x8hxl._ss500__super

Now, I am currently playing the console (Xbox 360) version because my computer can’t play it without glitching and dying out on me, so I am stuck with the console one.
It is rather different to the PC one but it’ll have to do.
Currently, I am playing a family of blue twin sisters and the daughter of one ( father is random) while the other twin is currently pregnant. And, yes, I did say they are blue. Haha. My father thinks I am mad for not using any money cheats on this game since I am fighting with having only about 10 thousand Simoleons (the sim currency) and I do think it is quite ridiculous trying to survive with a maximum of 10 grand. I don’t know how they survive.
In general, the sims live generally normal lives, just like humans, but some truly absurd things can happen to them, for example, they get ghosts.
Despite the original game, there are also expansion packs available with more possibilities and opportunities like travel:

What a week!

The heading is a lie.

My week has been so far from eventful that the power of the uneventfulness (what power?) could cause a supernova, thus creating a black hole, sucking out all eventfulness in the world, and yes, I know that eventfulness is not a word, but who cares anyway.
I’m not saying I didn’t like this past week, I did, really, but I just have to let my readers (what readers?) know about how TOTALLY UNEVENTFUL my week  has been. So, to anyone who actually reads this blog voluntarily (besides myself) you now know of the winter holidays and how they lack activity.

*I partially blame my friend Claudia for that because someone doesn’t know how to respond to two texts and FB messages*

On another topic, to anyone still left reading after that whole conundrum of WTFness, I think I am still completely flabbergasted by the insanity of Monty Python’s ‘And Now For Something Completely Different’ and it’s extreme Britishness.
(And I thought the ASDF movies were insane!!!)
(And yes, I did just almost forget how to spell ASDF)

{N and I played a fun game recently at school (while we were supposed to be studying for our exams) which, without much purpose (besides much laughter) entails drawing the following:                                      
*an island
*ocean waves around
*a sailor in a boat
*some palm trees
*some hula girls with skirts
*an erupting volcano
*the sun
*the word hawaii

The catch is: YOU HAVE TO DO IT WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED!!!
It’s REALLY funny afterwards.}

Yes, ^^that was extremely random. I just had to put it in there. hahaha.

Some more drawing have erupted from my pens and pencils.

A flower thing                          A rose                                  A sims/anime mash-up

Yeah, I think that’s it.
