Um. Yes. I did have to look up how to spell onomatopoeia because I forgot how. I'm sure I will forget how again. Pretty damn soon too. It's not that much of a surprise.


Anyway, I have found that I am actually very productive when I find that I cannot sleep. Most of the time, I'll just try to lie in bed and force myself to sleep, mostly because I'll have important things to do the next day and being tired isn't really an option. However, on rare occasions when I cannot sleep on a weekend night and decide NOT to just lie in bed and force myself to sleep, I get REALLY productive. I was tired at about 10 last night (I know that's early, but I'll get to why later) and everybody was going to bed... It is now 6.30 in the morning and I have successfully finished and submitted all my homework, scrubbed my converse to brand-new-ish (just gotta let them dry), and brushed the hell out of my dog because she is shedding at a rate of 47 dust bunnies per minute... and now I'm actually making a journal post! Wow. That last one is amazing, isn't guys? Especially since probably half of you thought I was dead (with exception to my mando sketch up).
I'm kinda hungry right now. But the house is too quiet to make food and there isn't anything good that I can just pick up and bring to my room or anything... Sucks. I really want food. There's pizza in the fridge too! But I don't like eating cold pizza (DON'T HATE ME!!). I like to put it in the toaster so it doesn't get all soft (or if too long, hard as a rock) and has that nice crisp to it.


THE BIG NEWS:
I GOT A JOB!!

So I was hired on in contractor position through TEKsystems to work for WHOLE FOODS MARKET as a web developer working on the main site! I absolutely LOVE my job. The work environment is beautiful, friendly, and welcoming, the people are outstandingly awesome, and the work I'm doing is satisfying.


In other news, I'm going to Comicpalooza in Houston this May! That's going to be an exciting Convention. Boyfriend and I are going to be rooming with peoples of awesomeness as well. Hopefully, I'll be able to add more to my new Steampunk soon as well. Maybe I'll start posting pictures of it as soon as I'm happy enough with it. Otherwise, it feels way too incomplete at the moment. In news of cosplay and conventions, we just had an "armor party" at those peoples of awesomeness' house and made some cool pulls of mando helmets. I've also decided I need to work on sculpting a helmet for a Silence (Doctor Who) cosplay. I will stand in corners and bump into people and be weird and be the Awkward Silence. (And I may be making a mold of the Silence helmet if it turns out well enough. I'll update ya'll later on that.)
I think that's about it for now. So I may drop off the face of the Earth again. Sorry in advance. There's a lot of stuff to do.
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: The Sound Of Everyone In The House Being Asleep
  • Reading: How-Tos on Helmet Building
  • Watching: My Life Pass Me By...
  • Playing: The "OMG I'm Failing Classes & Mom's Pissed" Game
  • Eating: Nothing. I'm hungry. Bring me food.
  • Drinking: Nothing. I want a milkshake.
Okay! First off, apologies for being such a lazy f.ck (yes, I just censored myself.) I've just had a lot on my plate. I have my online classes at Texas State University (working on a Masters in Educational Technology). I've been obsessed with League of Legends (as I have been for the past few months). And then the rest of my time seems to be taken up with ANOTHER story. Yes, another one. As if I don't already have two others that I should be working on. This one, I call Lives and Lies of Past and Present. I started it because I had a nightmare (which have been growing more frequent). Actually, almost exactly what happened in my nightmare has been included in my story. This story is a horror/murder mystery. I have three chapters done (roughly) and I think I may post them soon. 
I haven't technically stopped with the HLOI series or the Ask Nox series (and definitely haven't stopped with any of my other stories), it's just that I haven't made any progress on them either. If there's anything that you've been dying waiting for, note me and I'll try to publish it ASAP, because I hate cliffhangers too. And I'm so bogged down that I probably won't even try to edit before publishing which means it will go up quick and get redone later. Also, I think a lot of my first HLOI are pretty cr.ppy, so I may redo them with some nice imagery and they'll look a lot better. And dA has the ability to let me update them and check whether or not I want the update to republish them (so all comments and favs stay, but it notifies watchers again (at least, if I remember correctly, dA has this feature...)). 
Anyway, wish me luck! Or not, I can't really tell you what to do or how to live your life... not yet anyway, but I will one day rule this world. Just watch me!

Other news: I recently jumped into Attack on Titan (it's awesome, go watch/read it). Watched all of season one on Netflix in a single sitting. The next day I caught myself up on the manga (in a single sitting). 
I'm preparing to go to All-Con (Dallas, TX, March 13th-16th). I have a "Casual Harley" cosplay nearly complete. My steampunk is getting much closer to completion (I need to dye some skirts and [fabric] paint a black utility belt brown. My friends are also getting married there. Big Star Wars fans, they're having a Star Wars wedding. He will be in his Boba Fett (501st Legion approved--100% screen accurate) and she will be in her Boushh (also 501st Legion approved--100% screen accurate) (if you don't know, those are the Bounty Hunters). And I think that's awesome. I'm proud of them and wish them the best in life. They're good people and they deserve it and each other. :heart:
I have a mango. Her name is July (yes, like the month. yes, I know it's currently February).
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Birds Chirping
  • Reading: Neglected Comments and Deviations in My Inbox
  • Watching: ATTACK ON TITAN
  • Playing: The "Make Mom Think You're Doing Homework" Game
  • Eating: Bottlecaps, Runts, and Gobstoppers (Yay Wonka!)
  • Drinking: Diet Cherry 7Up
It's been a bit, but as you may be able to tell by my last Healthy Levels of Insanity post, I have gotten my Photoshop back up and running! Yay! There are still a few other things I need to redo, such as my collection of text fonts (which disappeared once I installed my new hard drive (old hard drive broke when I dropped my laptop and the laptop before that had its mother board go kaput). Anyway, as well, my new gaming computer (a good desktop computer) is working!! That's a HUGE yay! Now, I've been obsessed with League of Legends and I've had the chance to download Left 4 Dead 2 (it was free on Steam). 
My Christmas went alright. It was a small one; just spent it with my family. Same with New Years, which is a little boring in my household. All we do is stay up until midnight (family almost missed it too, we were just watching TV and said "Hey, look! The clock says it's midnight! Happy New Year!... Go to bed.") Winter break is just an excuse for me to sleep in, really. 
Since winter break is the end of the fall semester, that brings us to the topic of school. I did FANTASTIC this past semester. I made all A's in my three graduate courses. I'm set to go another three courses this coming semester. Wish me luck! And I wish all students reading this luck on their coming semesters as well. 

Today, I put up all the Christmas decorations. I had to carry several heavy boxes up into the attic by myself on a rickety ladder/stair thing. After that, I vacuumed and now I'm relaxing 'til Dad comes home. I'm drinking diet orange Sunkist, eating goldfish, and watching Game of Thrones. Just started the first episode. 

Another amazing thing... Boyfriend told me he loves me. I've known I've been falling for him for a while, so I was indescribably happy when he said it (so of course I replied likewise). 

-100 TRUTHS-

STOLEN FROM:
RAE8892


001. Real Name: Nope. Sorry. Does not compute. I might give it to ya'll one day, but that's not today. Maybe I should change the name of this meme to 99 Truths. Obviously, I'm a horrible liar. My pants are in flames.

002. Nickname[s]: I'll go by Nox, Noxx, or Noxxy. For the most part anyway. Other nicknames are not included because of the above question's invalidity. Let's change that to 98 Truths.

003. Zodiac Sign: Libra. My birthday is Sept. 27. That is true. I've said it many times.

004. Male Or Female: Female, but sometimes I get angry about that...

005. Elementary school: What about it? I went to a lot of them. By the time I was in 9th Grade, I had been to 9 different schools. Such a bad kid I was.

006. Middle School: Disgusting. It's that preteen time when everybody should have just learned to shut the fuck up and get over themselves.

007. High School: I went to one high school. Surprisingly, my family didn't decide to uproot everybody and move AGAIN, like every other time. It's not really their fault. My dad was in the military.

008. Hair Color: Chestnut brown with natural red and blonde highlights that you can only see in the sun.

009. Long Or Short: People say my hair is long, but really, I'd say it's medium length. If you're still talking about hair. Otherwise, I'm tall (not long).

010. Loud Or Quiet: With people I don't know/don't like: It's like I'm a ghost. Otherwise, with friends, I'm fucking loud. Somebody shut me up.

011. Sweats Or Jeans: Jeans. They won't fall off my hips. I never liked sweats. They're just seemingly lazy.

012. Phone Or Camera: Camera? I don't talk to people much. If anything, I'm always on my laptop. No need for a phone, almost.

013. Health Freak: I ate an entire tub of ice cream. It was fucking delicious.

014. Drink Or Smoke: I just know once I move out of my parents house, I'm going to be slightly alcoholic. I LIKE it. That's probably not a good thing.

015. Do You Have A Crush On Someone: Boyfriend. He just gets more perfect every time I see him.

016. Sexual orientation: Bisexual. Like a 70%/30% to Men/Women. Ladies are prettier, but I'm more sexually attracted to men.

017. Piercings: One in each ear. I'm hoping to get a second set some time in my life.

018. Tattoos: None yet. I haven't decided what I want to get or where. So I'll wait until I find something so perfect, I'll want it always.

HAVE YOU EVER [BEEN IN]:

019. Airplane: Yes. Several times, but none recently. Came with flying to England when I was young because my dad was stationed there.

020. Car Accident: Yes. Unfortunately, it wrecked my car. (It wasn't my fault and nobody disagreed. He ran a red.)

021. Fist Fight: Um... Only if you count sparring in Karate class when I was like 12.

FIRSTS:

022. First piercing: My ears.

023. First Best Friend : Ever? Kimberly. From Elementary school. Sadly, we lost touch after we both moved.

024. First Instrument played: An electric keyboard? I was really little and I'm not sure if that counts as "playing".

025. First award: I don't remember. I'll say my birth certificate. Congrats to me, I made it out of the womb!

026. First Crush: My first big real crush was on a guy named Michael in 8th grade. He was an asshole, it turns out. I hated 8th grade and never saw those people again. Mainly, because it was my only year at a private school, I was the outcast, and I decided to go back into public school. (I only went because my mom was a 1st grade teacher there.)

027. First Language: English

028. First Big Vacation: My family went to Disney World and Universal Studios like seven or eight years ago. I'm dying to go back again. They didn't have the Harry Potter theme park. D:

Adventures at Alamo City Con

So, this past weekend, on Friday and Saturday (unfortunately, not Sunday because Boyfriend had work and I wouldn't go by myself), I went to the Alamo City Comic Convention in San Antonio! It was a blast! I got to see a bunch of awesome friends and make a few new ones. I shared my idea of creating a Steampunk Harley Quinn as well. My friends even offered advice and some help with it! I really admire these people too (they're awesome), so it's so great to receive such positive attitudes from them all the time.
Not to mention, I got a chance to hear about my friends' wedding plans! He proposed to her at the Space City Con while he was in full Boba Fett (the Mandalorian Bounty Hunter) and she was in full Boushh (Leia's Bounty Hunter disguise). I only saw the pictures, but it was beautiful!! :heart: (And mind you, these cosplays are 100% legit and screen accurate, approved by the 501st Legion.) Their wedding will be at another con in Texas during August, I think. I'm excited for them.
Back to the Alamo City Con! I bought so many freaking posters! I'm running out of room on my walls now and I'm hanging them from my ceiling too. My room is AWESOME. Be jealous. I have Harley Quinn posters, Batman posters, Raven (from Teen Titans), Supernatural, Zombies, Doctor Who (of course), Lord of the Rings, and a shit ton more. I'm not even able to count how many thumb tacks I've put in my walls; I'm guestimating around 200+. I freaking LOVE posters and decorations. It's hard for me not to spend $300+ on them...
I also bought my first ever real comic books! (Not manga or just graphic novels, real comic books.) I bought three of The New 52! (They're the new series coming out.) I bought Harley's, the Joker's, and Poison Ivy's. I feel like a real nerd now. =P I have comic books.
Back to conventions: I really want to do a lot of different cosplays right now. I'm working on getting a job to afford these cosplays. I mean a real job, not teaching children at a child development center how to be demented (though the demented part is not part of the job description). I mean a career job. One in which they hire me because I have a Bachelor's of Computer Science and so many credit hours towards a Master's Degree. So the cosplays I really wanna do now are:
  • General Steampunk
  • Steampunk Harley Quinn
  • River Song
  • Raven (Comic Book Style)
  • Rangiku Matsumoto (Group Bleach Cosplay)
  • Imperial Officer (Star Wars; I want to join the 501st)
  • TK (Trooper Knight/Shiny Stormtrooper)
  • A shit ton more

Good luck to me and my bank account, right? The Stormtroopers (to be 501st legit) cost around $1000 to complete helmet, armor, boots, and underarmor. Plus the cost of every mistake I'm going to make.
Oh! And Boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon. I'm looking for any good Green Lantern gifts to get him. I've already got two gifts, but I feel like they could be expected and I was hoping to find something that could really blow him away; something he could get really excited about. It's difficult within my price range.
ANOTHER QUIZ FROM A TO Z
S T O L E N   F R O M
themeepynerd


A. WHY MY LAST RELATIONSHIP ENDED:
Oh, dear, rather personal. But I'll answer it because I'm the one who decided to take this quiz thingy. Okay, so my LAST relationship (not the one with Boyfriend) was unfortunately rather horrible. To make it short, it was an unhealthy relationship and I ended it. Should have ended it much sooner than I did, but it was my first real relationship and I had been in it so long that I didn't even realize the problem.

B. FAVORITE BAND:
That is way too hard to say. It changes frequently. But for the most part, it's almost always Disturbed that comes out on top. Otherwise, some others might include Rob Zombie, Red, AFI, Avenged Sevenfold, Thousand Foot Krutch, et cetera. That's my type of music.

C. WHO I LIKE AND WHY I LIKE THEM:
Boyfriend!! :heart: I like Boyfriend. He's awesome. Very nerdy, dorky, friendly, accepting, and quite handsome. Hehe. And he's a total sweetheart. We get along exquisitely.

D. HARDEST THING I'VE EVER BEEN THROUGH:
I don't go through many tough things. I intentionally keep myself out of those. Surprising to me, my last relationship (before Boyfriend) was not the hardest thing I have ever been through. Actually, the hardest thing I ever had to go through was a betrayal from two people who I thought were my best friends. It wasn't as bad as it sounds. They just kind of turned their back on me. What happened was that I had been the first to have an extravagant party--it was my quinceanera (15th b-day), while they were waiting on their Sweet Sixteenths. Anyway, I'm sure it was just jealousy and immaturity, but they started acting like bitches to me, no matter how nice I tried to be to see if it would lessen their sour moods. I ended up talking to my mom about it a while later and she ended up talking to their parents. They were being stupid. And eventually, they cut it out, but by then it was too late and I just moved on and made new friends. I'm glad it happened though. I got to meet a wonderful group of outcast friends and was much happier with them. And I think I learned a lesson from it. They're loss.

E. MY BEST FRIEND(S):
They're those new friends I made after that incident. I let loose my dork-side and became much happier for it. They mean a lot to me.

F. MY FAVORITE MOVIE:
This is another tough one. I do always love ZombieLand and Shawn of the Dead. Zombie movies are some of my favorite. Warm Bodies was good too. There are others like Matilda (one of my first favorites), Avengers (I love superheroes), the Harry Potter movies (Can't get enough of Harry Potter), et cetera. I can never answer these questions with just one answer.

G. SEXUAL ORIENTATION:
Bisexual. Like 70 - 30 ish more towards guys, but there are just some beautiful women in the world.

H. DO I SMOKE/DRINK?
I drink. Not beer. Beer is gross. But I like wine, hard liquors, and mixed drinks (and definitely jell-O shots). However, I don't care much for tequila. The occasional margarita is still nice though.

I. HAVE ANY TATTOOS OR PIERCINGS?
I have my ears pierced, but that's it so far. I do want a tattoo though. I have trouble deciding on which and where and when though. I have plenty of time for that later. I also want to pierce my ears a second time or get a cuff on one of my ears.

J. WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I GET OLDER.
Well, I have a degree in computer science that I'd like to use. I haven't decided on my dream job in this field though. There's too much to choose from. I've been applying though. As for a side job though, I've always wanted to have some of my stories published... I'd have to finish them though.

K. RELATIONSHIP WITH MY PARENTS.
I'm the favorite. I'm smart, kind, and everything that a parent would want their child to be... except for modest, if you can't tell. The only problem is that I'm lazy and have trouble getting work done.

L. ONE OF MY INSECURITIES.
I'm insecure about my weight. And I fear I annoy people with my dorky childishness.

M. VIRGIN OR NOT?
Nope, very much not.

N. FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP AT?
Amazon. It has everything and I don't have to put on clothes to shop.

O. MY EYE COLOR:
Brown. Though in the sun, they look like gold and honey.

P. WHY I HATE SCHOOL:
I've been at it for too long. I'm so tired of it. I hate homework. I don't find the degree worth the trouble. I don't see how it will make anything better.

Q. RELATIONSHIP STATUS AS OF RIGHT NOW.
I have Boyfriend. :heart:

R. FAVOURITE SONG AT THE MOMENT:
Right now... Scream by Avenged Sevenfold.

S. A RANDOM FACT ABOUT MYSELF:
I hate studying.

T. AGE I GET MISTAKEN FOR:
People don't mistake me for anything. When I was 12, I was mistaken for 18, but that doesn't happen any more, thankfully.

U. WHERE I WANT TO BE RIGHT NOW:
Where I am. I just want Boyfriend with me. I'm alone in the house, watching Trigun, in my pajamas.

V. LAST TIME I CRIED:
Watching a movie. Sometimes, they just make me cry. I'm kinda easy with that.

W. CONCERTS I'VE BEEN TO:
I've been to a Ludo concert and a Carrie Underwood concert. I don't normally go to concerts.

X. MY FANDOM:
I'd have to say the Supernatural fandom is the one I'm most involved in.

Y. DO I WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE?
Not any more. I want to be done.

Z. HOW ARE YOU?
Fantastic. Watching Trigun. It was a sad episode.


On a completely different note, I had deleted my Tumblr a while ago and now I've reformed it new. It's just funny stuff and SuperWhoLock stuff. If you'd like to follow, I'm here. And if ya'll know any good people to follow, please let me know. I'm having trouble finding good blogs with funny/interesting/fandom-related posts.

12 Jell-O Shots & A 6-Pack Later...
Y E A H
I T   W A S   A   G O O D   N I G H T


I went to an awesome little Halloween party last night. There was so much alcohol... but of course, my main focus was on the Jell-O shots. They were GOOD. And fun. Luckily, I don't get stupid (thus far) when I am drunk. The red ones were Strawberry Banana Jell-O with Whipped Vodka. The orange ones were orange Jell-O with orange flavored vodka. The purple ones were grape Jell-O with grape flavored rum. And the green ones were lime Jell-O with tequila. Though I don't really care for tequila. I had about 12 of an assorted variety. I honestly lost count though. I think it's 12, but it could be between 11 and 14. Then I also had a six pack of Mike's hard lemonade. Actually, the last bottle of that was the Mike's margaritas because we couldn't find my last bottle of the lemonade. I also had tastes of something that strongly resembled motor oil, chocolate vodka (YUM), and pineapple infusion Bacardi Rum. Easy to calculate, I was well above the legal alcohol content for driving. Don't worry, I would never drive drunk. Boyfriend drove me home. And because I spent my time with wonderful people, they gave me advice for how not to have a horrible hangover:
  • Drink lots of water. You're dehydrated.
  • Eat something with carbs, like bread or a bagael.
  • Also, something salty will help as well.
  • Take some ibuprofen (acetaminophen won't help).
  • Go to sleep and sleep well.


The people I partied with are amazing and wonderful. They are members of the 501st Legion (big and official Star Wars cosplay group). Boyfriend is a member of the 501st (as a TD and Vader) and that's how he knows them and I've met them at cons and at social gatherings that he's brought me to. They are so open and friendly and really good people. We played Cards Against Humanity (basically a very inappropriate version of Apples to Apples) and if you've never played it and have a twisted sense of humor, this game is just perfect for you. Now if you have played it before, you will understand why this game is perfect for when you are drunk. Think it's funny sober? Well, you're going to fall on the floor (out of hilarity, not because you're that stupid-ass drunk).

Hooray for me, my dad was able to fix my craptop. I have a new hard drive. The majority of the files that I really wanted saved have been saved. So my background/layout for my HLOI is safe! My progress on both Z for Zombie and The Vampires' Secret have been saved! However, I have lost all my originals for my Misadventures. The fonts I had loaded onto my craptop are lost. And since it is a new hard drive, I no longer have the Adobe products, so no Photoshop for a while. My dad is working on getting CS3 installed for me, though I have no idea when.

Unfortunately, my Grandma is not doing very well at the moment and my mom has been spending a lot of time in San Angelo, taking good care of her. I'm glad my mom is getting to spend some quality time with her Mama. They're having fun, but at the same time, it is serious business getting to the doctor's appointments and scheduling tests and making sure my Grandma is healthy and comfortable. She may be an old lady (85), but she parties more than everybody else in the family put together!

I may want to start drawing again. It's been a while since I actually drew anything. It's just that I still need a lot of practice, but at the same time, I'm very OCD and a bit of a perfectionist, so I tend to get discouraged and give up on them a lot. It's a bad habit, I know, and it's my own fault. You can't be immediately good at everything. So if I start posting crappy drawings, sorry. I think I may do a doodle dump of a bunch of old incomplete work. I've been wanting to for a while. Unfortunately, I have homework to do, so this may take a while.

I DROPPED MY STUPID PIECE OF SHIT LAPTOP!!

I feel like an idiot. I hated that thing, but I never wanted it to die!! I was just sitting on the couch when the Netflix movie ended and I needed to get the Wii-mote, which was out of arms length. So I put the craptop on the couch's arm rest (which my mom has told me not to do for the past three years, but nothing bad has ever happened) and leaned over to grab the Wii-mote. Guess what. It freakin' slid off the arm rest and clattered with a big crash on the hard wood floor. (It even woke my dad up. I was in the living room and the master bed is right next to it.)
Well, I didn't think anything was wrong with it. It worked fine as I watched yet another Batman movie on Netflix, just going along. Then it was time for bed and I carried it upstairs. Still nothing was wrong... Until I decided I wanted to post a comment on one of my class forums. When I went to open Firefox through the start menu. It froze. I still thought nothing of it. So I manually turned it off (couldn't really go through the start menu to shut down). Then it wouldn't start right. It could only make it to the start up window. Nothing. Nothing further. Repairs wouldn't work either. It just sat there... I FREAKING BROKE THE HARD DRIVE!! (Boyfriend did a diagnostic test. He works on the Geek Squad team.)

Now none of this would be so horrible, but the week beforehand, the motherboard in my gaming computer started dying. (Thankfully, Boyfriend has spare parts. He confirmed today that it was definitely the motherboard, as I assumed. That can be fixed.) However, I didn't back up the new HLOI appearance. (Stupid me, I know.) And some of my progress on my Z for Zombie has been lost, but not too much, so it's not a horrible set back. Another problem is that my gaming computer does not have any Adobe products. No Photoshop. I should be able to recover my story The Vampires' Secret because I have that one saved on multiple hard drives.
So good luck to me and my everlasting bad luck with technology this month...

Yes, though I don't always understand why. They're just brown.

A healthy median. Either extreme is too much for me.

ANOTHER ME JOURNAL


SIGNING OVER MY GROUP
Okay, so I have officially signed over my "Founder-ship" of my group, TheLaziestArtist, to fallowsingerwolf. I've been very lazy with TheLaziestArtist. I'm sure fallowsingerwolf will be a wonderful Founder. She's been contributing to it way more than I have, and thus the reason I have appointed her my successor. So congrats to fallowsingerwolf on becoming the new Founder! I'm still an admin in it, but after a while, I may just demote myself to a regular member. Then I may make a new group dedicated to something else... No idea on what that is yet though...

PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP EXPIRED
Okay, so as you've probably been able to tell by my skinless journals, my premium membership expired a little while ago. No biggie. Just informing you. That means no more polls though. And no more journal skins, which may make it harder to remind you of my contests (I usually kept a link to them in the side menu bar of my journals). Right now there are two going on: My Zombification Contest and The Contest Contest. Please participate. In other news, I've been on deviantART for a year now!! Yay! I marked it because I received my premium (from anonymous that I'd like to thank again) near the beginning of my deviantART membership and now it's ended. Hurrah!

I TURNED 21 TWO WEEKS AGO
Forgot to mention it in my last "me" post. I turned 21 on Friday, September 27th while I was on the cruise and ported in Cozumel, Mexico... so yeah, my birthday was awesome to say the least. I had two martinis, some wine, and a pina colada. I was also playing on the cruise ship's slot machines and casino. It was fun. I lost $30. So now it's either cheap wine or expensive hard liquor. And I prefer rum over vodka. I like mojitos too. I don't care for beer. It's too bitter.

HOMEWORK IS EVIL
Yeah. I'm still in school and I still have homework. It is very much evil. I hate writing essays. They're evil.

CONTEST BRAINSTORM
I T ' S   A   C O N T E S T
FOR BRAINSTORMING CONTESTS



I like doing contests. In fact, I put all my dA points (from donations and stuff) towards funding contests. The problem is not that I don't have enough ideas for contests (because, with my mind, it'd be weird to think that I don't), but I just really wanna know what you guys would think would make a great contest and which ones you would be interested in doing. I bet a lot of you guys have ideas for contests, but maybe don't have a group to apply them to or don't have the points to fund it with... well, I do. And you can share... for a prize too!! This one's easy. And I'll give you credit if I use your idea.

I WAS ON A FREAKIN' CRUISE

Like Hell, I'd apologize for that. I was on a splendid cruise from the 22nd of September to the 29th of September. An entire week in and on the fanciest, most decadent place I have ever been, and it was awesome. It was me and my mum (and my Tia (Aunt), but we're not speaking of her (big fight/drama)) and we had such a blast. It was a Carribean Cruise on the Carnival Magic (yes, the one with the disastrous reputation, so it was relatively cheap). We went to Jamaica (Montego Bay), Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman), and Mexico (Cozumel). I high recommend this trip. Just don't forget the sunscreen. Sunburn is easy. And I don't burn... There will be pictures to show later. I'll post a few once I get organized. Right now, I'm busy with catching up on my school work.

RAFFLE TIME

As I promised, there are five winners of the RAFFLE TIME raffle! Your winners are (in no particular order):
:bulletgreen: psto1464
   :bulletgreen: Algophobic
       :bulletgreen: CaptainBeckhurst
           :bulletgreen: Airship-Seamstress
               :bulletgreen: Louddinosaur
Congratulations, you all have won 20 points and a llama badge (if you have not already received one from me)!

WHILE I WAS AWAY

I went on a cruise, as I just mentioned. I got sunburn for the first time in history. Not bad though, it doesn't hurt (never did), but it is peeling and freaking me out. I have enough worries with making sure I don't decay as Queen Z, I don't need sunburn peeling. Speaking of my Z-minions, yes, it was us who shut down the government. It's my first strike in this apocalypse take over. So a congrats to us is in order. Thank you, thank you. And, Survivors... Run.
On another note, yeah, I did run out of my premium. It's okay though. HLOI, Misadventures, and Ask Nox will all carry on. Speaking of Carry On (My Wayward Son), is anybody excited for the new season of Supernatural coming up soon? What about Series 3 of Sherlock? How about American Horror Story's Season 3? With Witches!! And nobody can forget Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary!!! Yay! I'm excited.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to post much this week either. I'm going to the Fandays Convention in Dallas tomorrow (and all weekend) with Boyfriend!! I'm going as River Song (outfit from Let's Kill Hitler). Boyfriend is going as the Fifth Doctor. It's gonna be awesome and there are some amazing people showing up there. Check it out.
Then I will be completely restrained, tied to a chair, kicking and screaming, and suffering because I'll be forced to do my homework... like the stuff I'm not doing right now that I should be...

STOP! RAFFLE TIME!

RAFFLE TIME


It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.

RAFFLE RULES

  1. You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
  2. You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
  3. You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
  4. You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.


Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)

RAFFLE PRIZES

  • There will be FIVE Raffle Winners!
  • Each will win 20 points :points: and one llama (if you have not already received one from me).

I KISSED A GIRL AND I LIKED IT!!

Thu Sep 5, 2013, 2:02 PM


YES!! I kissed a girl and I liked it! Not recently though. I'm not sure if that would make Boyfriend mad or happy... Either way, *I* would consider it cheating. Even if he openly stated it wouldn't really matter to him and I'd get a free pass if it was with a girl. I think he just likes imagining it (and apparently threesomes, but isn't that every little boy's wish? I did honestly tell him that if a perfect opportunity came, I might grant his wish anyway. I'm a freaking genie... slash Zombie Queen.). So, Boyfriend and I are fantastic. But ya'll are probably tired of hearing me gloat on and on about him and rather me post some more HLOI and Misadventures (which, unfortunately, I don't have any and I'm at school so I can't make any), so let's move on.

I have now started playing League of Legends (is free). My username is NoxSatuKeir. NO WAY!! Right? Same goes for my XBOX LIVE profile name. Both of which you can friend me on. Anyway, I've only been playing this for a few days now and I'm still not very good at it. I'm learning though. I feel proud of myself.

Currently, I am sitting in the computer lab on campus (I go to school still) completely bored out of my mind because I've already done all possible homework. My home has been refunctioned as a prison. My mom is the warden. The downstairs cell block has been refitted to be the homework area. It is maximum security with full time supervision. I cannot get off task. There is always more work to be done. No matter how insignificant and ridiculous. Upstairs is my private cell (bedroom) where I may only proceed to when it's lights out. Alas, there are prison breaks (masterminded by Boyfriend), but eventually, I will be apprehended and arrested for homework negligence. Recreational time is very limited and very little can be done during that time. Prison food is gross; the warden (my mom) is a horrible cook. And what was my crime? Why am I sentenced to life (really just this semester)? Because I failed a class last semester (retaking it this semester) and lost my financial aid. Ladies and gentlemen, don't be like me. Stay in school, go to class, and most importantly, do your homework.

Unfortunately, my Advanced Weaponry Team has suffered a drastic drawback to their progress... one of the biochemical weapons exploded in their laboratory the other day and some of my most brilliant scientists' minds have degenerated to a primitive instinctual state. I guess, if I wanted to simply infect the world and turn every living being into an idiot (not that it'd be a big change from now), those zombies would do well, but no. I want a civilization of an immortal race--to build the world up from the graves of our predecessors and create a new age with me as the Queen Z. Speaking of predecessors, I have another team of scientists working on raising those who are already dead. This has not been a possibility yet. We are hopeful for our success. Wish us luck.

I'm also considering possible contests for my groups. I know I haven't done much with them for a long time, and I'm sorry. For InsanityInspires I'd like to have a "Zombification" Contest. The idea: Zombify something--a person, an animal, a mutated species, even Zombify a city. Show me your Zombie Apocalypse. (I'll get wonderful ideas for my future military creations.) I think the deadline should be around mid-November. More details soon.

Queen of the Undead

QUEEN OF THE UNDEAD

I S   A   D I F F I C U L T   P O S I T I O N


I apologizing for not reaching out to you, My Minions. I do love you. I have just been busy amassing my large armies of infected. The time of the Queen's Apocalypse is nearly upon us. My Undead Generals and I have begun strategizing our points of interest for primary and secondary attack. The Medical Team has also been developing new methods for infecting both live and deceased subjects as well as mutating the virus to include special abilities and reduce the rate of decomposition. My Weapons and Defensive Administration Corps has begun arming my ranks. My Personal Guard has also been reinforced.
On another note, my niece and nephew had been staying with me for several weeks. They really do keep me busy. My sister also just came for the weekend and I spent a fair amount of time with her. I don't see her very often, so it was nice. She is moving to New Jersey now. She and her husband now own a bakery there. I had a fun few days.
Then there is also the matter of school. It has begun. I am actually sitting in a computer lab on campus writing this because my class is in an hour and I don't have much to do. The humans here have no idea that I will, very soon, become their queen. This is also an experiment with my Medical Team's odorless gas infection method. So far, no results. Not even a slight reaction. The concentration may be too small.
Also, Boyfriend is awesome. My for-cover-only (because Queen of the Undead is not a legal status) parental guardians have approved my trip to the Fandays Convention in Dallas October 4th - 6th with Boyfriend. We will be staying in a hotel. It is a miracle that the parental guardians approved without threat to their living status.
