Since my last update:
- I've turned 24 years old a week ago on Sunday and had an ok time.
- I've been to the London Expo, had some super fun times and intend to do a spam of photos eventually.
- Went to the hospital to have a camera up my butt to check if my insides are falling apart or not (they're still good \o/).
- Sort-of-started on NaNoWriMo but have yet to make an official start online, plus I have to change my profile since I changed my story line and title at the very last minute - going from lesbian romance between a vampire and a ghost to a weird fantasy/science fiction that has more angst than a stereotype of an mid-2000s emo kid - full of magic and superheros... yup :I
- Completed level one on my maths program. Now I have to wait a month to get my certificate before I can continue on to level two and get a basic GCSE equivalent grade to prove I know what numbers are.
- And enjoyed Halloween by watching a ton of movies and putting on a furry hat that someone gave me ages ago.
In other news, I've been getting hooked on a band called Steam Powered Giraffe. They sound like fun and some of their songs are nice... but in reality I can't stop listening to their cover of 'I Love It', plus their face paint and costume -HOLY HELL I WANT THEIR CLOTHES. erm. yes. that's about it. I'll probably get round to updating with a Expo spam soon :]
Fire Fire is my second most-listened-to track.

Still unemployed and lost on what to do for the future - although with Christmas coming up I've been applying to a lot of Christmas temp jobs, so who knows.
I have about 50 story ideas from novels to comics floating in my head and on hundreds of loose pieces of paper in a folder, and yet I have about zero concentration to do anything productive. With that being said, I did enter a short story for Diva magazine last month - but it ended up sucking because I had to edited down to 750 words and got a bit too egar by emailing it before I could fix it up better :I oops. Still, I wanted to do it just so I could show myself that I am capable of completing tasks... even if the motivation was £75 depending on if they printed it in their mag or not.
Also, I had to take my mum to the hospital last night and the entire day today - going through three changes in prescription, suggesting my Mum had a clot or DVT (deep vein thrombosis) - then to cellulitis and finally a reaction to my mum's heart condition. Ultimately we're hoping that the anti-biotics will work by Friday or else she'll have to be put on a drip. In addition to that, I have to go back to the hospital for my yearly check up and tell her about the gut bleeding stuff and the future colonoscopy at the end of the month. yippie.
I'm just feeling a little tired about the whole thing and I've drifted off to sleep at least twice, so I apologize for any grammar and spelling mistakes in this post...
When in doubt. post up a singing puppy.
Hope everybody is well, and as usual I'll try and update more :D

I had just written a long-ass entry for my new update and LJ just jerk to another page randomly. When I hit the back button, the whole post was completely gone >:[[[
I've just about had enough of your crap LJ. I swear, every time I attempt to make a post the site is either down or glitched. It only works when I'm in lurkers mode :|
I'm just a bit pissy since I was actually in a good mood when I was writing that post. Granted it was about nothing new, apart from signing up for a Maths GCSE course to improve my grade and being rejected for being too stupid \o/, it was a nice and lengthy post written in good humor, and now I just can't be bothered.
Aside from re-watching/catching up with House MD, I've been giggling over The Most Popular Girls in School series.
- Current Mood: annoyed
- Current Music:'Get Happy' -
New years resolutions:
- Give up coffee for 3 months (1 month at least).
- Sign up for a maths course and redo my Maths GCSEs.
- Finish writing the book I've been working on since god-knows-when.
I should get my art blog back up again, I was in a bit of a mood when I deleted it all <.< I've been feeling depressed lately but thankfully it's been manageable and I'm starting to get some stuff done. I'm attempting to clear out my mother's stuff (I swear if it wasn't for the rest of us living in the same house, I have a feeling the woman would have gone full hoarder mode years ago. :/ ) - so far I've managed to clear out about two large piles of magazines and started sorting out the board games to take to the charity shop. She was a bit reluctant about getting rid of the mags, but once I pointed out that most of it was either torn apart or water damaged she agreed to chucking them out.
I was suppose to be going out on New Years but the phone calls for plans never came and I could not be bothered to call lol. For the most part I've been feeling pretty numb to everything lately - not in a sad way (though like I've said before; I have been feeling depressed recently, it's just not been the kind of depressed where I can't get my shit together or end up feeling to bad to live etc...) - just basically feeling unenthusiastic for life. Eh, I can only keep on plodding along til something happens :)

I know I haven't been updating much, but oddly enough whenever I had thought about updating LJ was down o_o Just a weird coincidence lol.
Life continues to be between meh to sucky in the sense that I feel like I'm going no where in life - but I'm still being optimistic, mainly because the other option involves me lying in a ditch and drowning in a pool of my own tears and disappointment. My motivation to write or to draw something other than fanart has pretty much halted, but I'm working on that.
In unrelated news - I've invested myself in a series called Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica - so far I'm up to episode 7. I thought it was going to be a cute show, until it git dark and depressing with a creepy bunnycat walking around... but it's still pretty interesting to watch.
And other times I've been occasionally ambitious and started writing and re-writing my novel that I've been on and off about writing :I My graphic novel is in a toilet of failure and thus I've abandoned it like the heartless creature that I am in my worst moments. I've got plans for other stories but I can't see myself being committed to them. This is what I've become - the heart breaker of my own ideas. I start off thinking "Yeah! I can do this. Lets get this baby made and done." Then over time I get either distracted by life or bored to tears with the convincing idea that everything I do is shit and will result in failure. Then I give it one last push of motivation before giving up and saying "I'M DONE", throwing the towel in before moving onto the next seemingly better project.
Still I'm keeping hopeful that I'll find the right story with the right kind of motivation to go behind it
I've also been volunteering for quite sometime now at two charity shops. The one that I've been working at the longest is the Salvation Army - which I had my doubts about working there since there have been anti-LGBTQ incidents involved with them, mostly refusing shelter (although I think those reports took place in America, but it wouldn't surprise me if the same thing has happened in the UK) - but the place I work at genuinely helps everyone out regardless of sexuality/gender/etc... Although the branch I work at doesn't specialize in shelters, just emergency food packages and sleeping bags/kits for the homeless, the Captain in charge does help people to find nearby shelters and organizations to send them to with his contacts. That being said, the only thing I'm allow to do is help manage the shop that helps to fund for the items above. Still I've made a few friends and learnt about retail (now to actually get a job ha ha).
I'm just in a good mood because I have a cheese sandwich and I'm reading Adventure Time theories whilst listening through my music files and cleaning out my files 8]
and now to end this post with a work of art cereal commercial.

Hope everyone has a good day/night 8D

I swear I actually forgot it was my birthday this morning, it doesn't help that I already forget how old I am. Lol, I'll probably keep thinking I'm 21-ish until I'm 30 ha ha ha.
It's been a good day today :) I'm a bit sad that I couldn't go to the London Excel Convention today (although it's probably wise not to go since I'm already running low on money and a con would probably help me make impractical decisions to buy everything :I), but I had a nice meal with the family and hung out with Roisin for a little bit before going back home to watch the Hunger Games (Because it's totally a cheerful movie :x... totally).
Tomorrow me and Roisin are going to the fun fair for her birthday :3 Hopefully the weather won't be too crappy for the day, although the cold snap started today :I Winter is finally here~
I've got two outfits planned for Halloween >D Killer Panda or Kiki from Kiki's Delivery service... although it might change depending on my mood and the weather outside.
