I never thought I would miss the insanity that is Pratt but I genuinely do. I feel so unproductive here (though I am working on a side project for BW so that's good). It's been a month and I've been given a total of ONE real project and a bunch of vague directions for projects that will be done in the future. It makes it difficult to WANT to do anything, too. Speaking of assignments, the one that I do have is a group project (which is good for a first project because I'd be lost without Manuela and her amazing patience when it comes to explaining shit to me in a mix of Italian and broken English) and we JUST got a typed brief today.

When I got to class Silvia, the girl who wants to go to Pratt next semester, came over and we talked briefly. She asked me if I'd read New Moon. Kind of random. I guess it was because Twilight is a huge thing in the US for certain age groups. Or I give off a vibe that reels lovers of the Sparklepire.

Uploaded photos to photobucket and will post them tomorrow. Promise. Tweet me if I don't, 'kay? *expects Erica, Amanda and Nicole to respond alla Pee Wee's Playhouse*


Random observation: You tweet once using the word "vegan" and all of a sudden you're followed by one on Twitter.

'Cause I finally uploaded it onto youtube: PEEP WARS!

Apologies to those who subscribe to Badgerstaff Wheneverly Blog's RSS feed Whenevs for what is essentially the same post as this.

Also, despite sleeping relatively well the last two nights, I'm back to being unable to fall asleep despite the new mattress. I blame having slept in till 3 PM today. Need to get this whole sleep schedule business down...blargle.

Have the glasses. They're weird and give me a headache (which is because I'm not used to them). I'd post a picture of me with them on but I have yet to get a good picture (using photobooth) and I'm insecure like that.

Mum and I have made two cakes in order to use two different types of icing. We made the marshmallow fondant and are going to "ice" the cake once she's done with a shower and then we're going to do the pudding frosting tomorrow if there's time. I've decided that this weekend I'm going to relax at least a bit (even though I can't stop thinking about those various projects that are starting this week) and whatnot.

I've been feeling really bad about not getting Badgerstaff Wheneverly stuff up or edited. If I'm honest, I haven't had time to sit down and thoroughly cut the footage, or even film my own. I feel too weird doing it in my dorm and I don't have a camera so I'd either have to rent one or borrow one from a friend (hey Michele! Wanna do some filming? We can have footage editing parties, you doing IchiP and me doing BW!). So yeah, I suck and am stressed with school (not as much right now because we're doing new projects, not finishing any) so while I feel bad, I've got to prioritize.

Also, my Peep War final for After Effects is a go! That's right, stop motion animated Peeps fighting to the death to Princes of the Universe by Queen. Now I need to find Peeps when it isn't Easter or I'll just make Peep-like creatures out of Play-Dough.


ETA: Marshmallow Fondant Experiment failed. We didn't put in enough confectioner's sugar and it was WAY too sticky. We have since decided that perhaps buying fondant ready-made is a better option, or maybe just trying one that doesn't involve marshmallows. Pudding Frosting Experiment is a go when I return in Thanksgiving.

Progress on the Twilight Collab Vlog is somewhat slow. Mostly because I keep on needing to move files from my harddrive to an external harddrive because I was stupid and didn't just work off one in the first place. Now every time I render it's telling me there isn't enough drive space and I need to clear more files. That part is quite unfun. The fun bits happen when I put the different clips together. Keep in mind, my lovely collaborators, that not all of your footage will be used. I'll be trying to keep the camera time even among us and I'm still wondering if I will use background music or not. Right now I have a pretty sweet intro (if I do say so myself) with music that has NOTHING to do with the story but I want to have some songs that are appropriate, however I can't think of how to get them in there without them overpowering the snark.

Work-wise, I have this weekend off and am hopefully heading to NJ to hang with some friends. I'm still not 100% that I can go but I really hope that it all works out and that I will be there. Heaven knows you'll need emotional support for the Avatar finale watching. :-P

Speaking of friends...IchiP! Yeah, I'm looking at you! When the hell are you going to edit that interview thing? You don't even have to put it on youtube. I just wanna see it. *hint hint*

I want something to eat. Preferably chocolatey. And maybe some tea. I am a tea addict.

SPARKLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saw HP5 with Cara and her mummy after work and had dinner after, then infiltrated one of the elementary school's playgrounds for funsies. Twas a nice night. Unfortunately, it means I have again missed my Gramma's daily call whilst my parents are away and have to call her tomorrow or fear her wrath.

Possible spoilers but not really since you've probably read the book and whatnot )


For SBMBers, new and old, in case you don't frequent the boards, I want to put together an HP themed BW for the 21st (or a day or two after) but need stuff from you. Send pictures of you in costume, fanfic, stories that actually have nothing to do with HP, whatever. Just send me stuff pleasethanks! I'll get the other BW out soon. It was supposed to be ready for Wednesday but life got in the way of me getting it all put together. Sorry! The best way to motivate me is through feedback and submissions. And chocolate. And pretty boys. And ponies (or unicorns, I'm not too picky). So motivate me!
