I always like the New Year, even though most magazines and things tell you - you don't have to wait until the new year to start new things or start anew, the new year
somehow has that nice new feeling. I'm trying to clean up, neaten up etc.

I thought a lot about this past year, I almost can't remember back to the beginning of January. I was really anxious about turning 20 but it wasn't so bad, even though
through this year wherever I went when I ordered a drink I didn't know was alcoholic but happened to be so, I got shot down instantly, it's a couple months until I'm 21 and
I wonder when I'll stop be instantly shot down and perhaps carded instead. They could at least pretend I look old enough.

I wonder if there is something older people wear. Anyway.

I think this year I quit Atlantica and couldn't really get into Vindictus, I played sims3 for a while and even purchased latenight, but I sort of got tired of it. My friend from high school
used to say every time he played he felt like he should work on his own life, which I didn't understand when he told me, but now when I play sims3 I definitely feel like I should
at least put that much effort into my own life, even if the reward system isn't so easily seen, and I can't cheat code myself more money.

I think changes don't happen very quickly, I wanted to start writing more when I quit but it took me a while to start making myself do things I had gotten too lazy to do.
Over the break I really slacked on my healthy eating, but I kept up most of my exercise.

From the time I posted the first video I have gotten a lot stronger and been able to do more of her 550 rep exercise. So that has been cool.

I know a lot of people will just straight ignore posts like these, but if you've read this far, and what not, I think the end of the year is always good to see what you've done over the year.
I think this year I tried that and it literally took me an entire year to go one step but even if I didn't achieve some great leap forward for my life I think I made a lot of small steps that will help me
over the next year.

Even though I don't play AO anymore or Vindictus I like that people still come onto the forum even if just to post a sentence. I don't really feel like anyone will flame my posts
even if they're not interesting and a little narcissistic, but sometimes I like to read about the other people's lives and see what they're up to beyond what anime you're watching.

Normally in the beginning of the year I make those resolution lists but I think I haven't reworked what I'm really aiming for. To be honest, it would be nice if grades really were the end game, if just
reading, studyign, showing up to class etc. could make someone happy. I was going to put try a little harder in school. but I'm really trying to write so I don't have to find my self worth in a grade.

Anyway, that was a little of my pre new year thoughts.

Winter quarter won't be so bad as it normally is, normally its dark and depressing and then you get like a small break and it's spring quarter. But this spring quarter i'll be studying abroad in Japan.
I should feel more excited but I guess I'll be more excited when it gets there.

Next year what I really want is to push myself more. It's this feeling I have when I get on the bike, even for only 30 minutes. I used to do an hour but with 30 minutes I really really talk myself
down every second, to push myself when the song gets to a certain time, to do a certain amount of cycles. Every time I'm seriously tired, I can't breathe, my stomach feels hollow - but I manage
to start up again and push myself again, I get this really nice feeling of overcoming my own negativity. That I'm too tired to do it, or I can't do it. Some days when I lounged around all night I say okay
I'll just get on and pedal, don't need to push yourself, but just getting up and playing the mental tug-of-war with yourself, to me has been something maybe I've been too lazy to do over the year.

Sometimes I lay in bed and I don't want to get up because it's cold or I feel like I'm tired, but I know I can.

I was talking to my friend the other day about how when we sit around it's like there's nothing to do, so I just sleep for hours. But when you start to work on things, it feels like suddenly there is too much to do. It's like how I approached most of my papers last quarter, and for most of them, didn't do so well. I told Aoto it was like I was standing at the foot of a large mountain and I felt like
I couldn't do it, like once I started climbing I'd have to keep going and it wasn't going to be enjoyable, so all week I just pace around the mountain base not wanting to look up. But the night before my paper I'm always like, okay I either write this or I fail the class.

I guess that's sort of weird, but that's sort of what I'll try this year. To limit my sleeping, and pacing myself to work on the things I need to get done.

Anyway, I think I tried to end this post a while ago and failed.

If anyone else wants to post something similar I'd read it. kiss

Hope everyone has a good new year.

chinese new years is early this year! $$$

actually yea i start next week, but since its winter its a super short semester

classes were full in about 5 seconds and i didnt get any at first so i spent the next 5 minutes or so refreshing to see if anyone dropped any and i ended up getting a beginning drawing class and an online bio class

the bio class is kind of meh but i didnt want to get by with just 1 class. i can't really complain cause i got at least 1 class i wanted to do and its a suprisingly long class, like 4 hours 4/5 days a week

edit: yumi come online once and help me make a dg staff
edit2: nm yuki can make dg now, here was the result

What sort of drawing class? The thing about community college is all the classes you can't take at like Davis. I did a pottery class before and it was a lot of fun. Davis does have art classes, but I don't know - I wanted to do sculpture for a while but my arms got tired doing pottery so maybe not >.>

Fansub had this old series called Starry Sky, it was so bad ha. I liked the name but the whole thing was terrible. And I tried to watch this movie Luops = something, and that was ... I don't know felt like
I was missing something.

Seriously everyone seems to be enjoying themselves ha.

I've only been snowboarding once and I almost broke my neck and spent like 20 minutes stuck in a hole next to a tree >.>

its a beginning drawing class, but i've been drawing for awhile now so i kind of have an edge. however i never learned the basics, they never taught it to me so i ended up developing my own skills.
im pretty much here to get back into drawing and learn the basics, so far i make everyone's work look like its been done by a 5 year old

for example we did ellipses (circles at an angle) today and had a sketching session for it + crosshatching (form of shading)
it was around 1.5 hours i think for the session and i had it all done pretty much, could photo it if others want to see later; left my sketchpad in lockers
after we finish we go around to see what every else did and in the process of doing so i was like 'wow, this is community college level shit'

it almost all looked like it was drawn by little kids, exception of a few. my work stood out like some picasso shit. anyways enjoy the update, haven't even had a chance to do much else lately
I didn't realize 2 classes during the type of winter session this school has is so much work. its only 6 weeks so everything is fast tracked
my drawing class is pretty easy but i have an online bio class thats raping me, back to studying / doing a fuckload of homework T__________________T

Yeah short term classes can be bad cause once you get behind it gets to be an incredible amount of work.

You should show up some pictures if you have time to do some uploading stuff.

Time to read a lot of ... interesting stuff. Actually the beginning of the quarter won't be so bad since I've read a lot of the stuff for other English classes.

>.>

I need to start time blocking my days on days when I need to do serious reading. Sad

It's pretty interesting how drawing classes don't really teach you much nowadays~~ I never really improved much during my times in such, and ended up learning everything on my own to this day. That was junior high that time, and I was one of the first boys to get a grade A in art in many years~~ Nowadays I volunteer to go back to junior high to teach about drawing etc. mostly the art of Comics, such as prioritization, dynamic angles, motion and effects~

Right now, I have all the basic skills, all that's left is to learn it into muscle memory so I don't get stumped when I draw...

If you want true artists, go check on a real art school~~ My highschool is one of the three high schools that specialize in art. Every kinds of art fields are taken into account~
My skills compared to these students are like an amateur vs. grand artist. I felt like shit when I looked at how good they were, and looked back at my A, not so tough now aren't I? XD

Examples:
One -A painting ordered for a hospital, children's section. Made by our school.
Two ~A hand-drawn one, I admire this one due to the effort spent on it, using only a pencil.

Also, I second Yumi, you should post your stuff here too~~ we wanna see 8D
