good things

Thu Jun 3, 2004, 3:46 AM
Yes. Good things.  These do not include catching up with my devwatch, but I'll get round to that at some point.

However:
:bulletpurple: I have figured out how to make the macro function on my digital camera work properly so there will be pretty rose pictures soon :) (feeling very stupid as a result)
:bulletpurple: exams are over :boogie:
:bulletpurple: I'm going home for the weekend and catching up with so many friends I ran out of meals to meet them for :hug:
:bulletpurple: the weather's still reasonable! :sun:
:bulletpurple: I went to a fantastic show at the theatre last night :dance:

Stuff. Yes.
My life has currently been taken over by exams, and since I haven't been particularly active on here anyway, due to a desire to write good comments coupled with a lack of energy to write said comments, my new deviations list is currently 900... I'm expecting it to hit 4 figures by the time I surface from exams.

I haven't figured out how I'll do it, but I do plan to try and catch up over the summer... we shall see. I might just give up and start again, but I don't want to do that if I can help it cause i've been filtering as they come through and there are some great pieces in there I might miss if I started clean.  

*yawn*

Exams. Bleurgh.

10 days...

Glass

Sat May 8, 2004, 4:13 PM
I have just realised. I need to start painting glass again. This will help my mood, as I keep wanting to do creative things, but not in front of a computer.  There are two problems: Lack of glass (easily solved, I'll go into town tomorrow)... and no-one to paint for.

So, any suggestions for people I might paint glass for? I tend to paint those flat clip-frames, although if charity shops are open I could buy some random glasses too...
Most of my housemates already have them (from last year's revision session or birthdays...) and so now I'm stuck.  

Suggestions please!

Going Under

Tue Apr 27, 2004, 2:01 AM
So, I've been building up unlooked at deviations again.

Thanks to my subscription, I've been trying to filter them, but even so I currently have 550 unlooked at... and because it's exam time, I have even less time.

So, apologies to everyone that I haven't been commenting, but it's gonna be a little while cause nothing's going to happen till after my exams finish and I get a bit of a break.

*returns to the hated world of background reading and revision*

At last!

Sat Jan 24, 2004, 5:48 AM
At last, I've managed to clear out all my deviations.  So now hopefully I'll be able to get round and submit some new stuff, I've got a couple of sets of photos to play around with and put up...

And on the note of photos, s33r and I went to Australia for Christmas.  We were looking at our photos, which were all taken with my new digital camera, and realised that we don't always know who took what... so, we've created a new account for the ones we argue over...

fluffles - check it out :)

That's about all I wanted to say, for now at least...

I gotta little star by my name, look!  Isn't it cool! I get big thumbnails and everything!

This is gonna make my job of catching up so much easier....

*huggles* s33r :hug:
I've been meaning to write this for a while. I'm aware that I've been incredibly inactive on this site for several weeks now. I simply don't have the time at the moment to keep up with my uni life, let alone anything else.  I wanted you all to know I haven't forgotten, I just haven't had a chance to look, and I want to be able to give more than just 'that's pretty' in a comment, because I know it means so much more to me when I get more substantial comments - although the 'that's pretty' sort are nice too :).  

I *will* eventually catch up, but it may take a while.  You never know, I might even get a chance to play with some of my own artwork and submit as well!

In the meantime, deadlines call.  I'm sure you know the feeling.

Check out this entry for a list of people that deserve a look.

:heart:s33r:heart:
I have to say thankie muchly to maxine who took the photo, and narflet who made it into the fantastic wallpaper you see now as my webcam picture :) isn't it great!  
-----------------------
Apologies to everyone who's work I haven't been commenting on. I'm finding it difficult to find the time to keep up at the moment, but hopefully I'll catch up next month. I'll try, at least... I haven't forgotten you all!

Either gorgeous photos or comedy hamsters, 'tis well worth checking out :)

All the people below are people that I have on my devwatch, who I think deserve some recognition.  Some are already well known among many of the deviants, and some are not at all.  They all deserve a mention, so if you haven't seen them go check them out :)

Ok, I figured it was time for a new post. I want to draw your attention to my fiance, s33r.  He has some great photography in his gallery - s33r.deviantart.com/thumbnails - and deserves some attention. I admit, some of his stuff where he's trying things out is not the world's best, but everyone has to learn - so please, go give him a look, give him some advice, let him know what you think!  In particular, some of my favourites:
www.deviantart.com/deviation/1… - Bristol Sunrise
www.deviantart.com/deviation/8… - Dust Storm
www.deviantart.com/deviation/5… - Water Drops
www.deviantart.com/deviation/6… - Close To Happiness


This is something I've been meaning to do for a while, as I think there are several people out there that deserve a bit more notice taking of them.  So, take a look at my first pick! :)

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

-William H. Davies

I've been taking a lot more time to stand and stare recently.  I've also smiled a lot more recently. I've seemed to find this inner peace/happiness that's giving me an everlasting optimism and happiness.  I don't know how, where or what it came from.  All I know is that I'm feeling different, happier, settled, and I regularly take the time to stand and stare at beauty I wouldn't have noticed a few weeks ago.  

Life is good :)

I've got some pictures on my digital camera.  I took them the other day as a break from essay writing... and now I can't find the cable so I can't upload them... GRRR I want my pictures! And I want them off the camera so I can take some more...!  Dammit, why can't my cable be where I'm sure I would've put it - somewhere sensible and obvious!

UPDATE: 5 minutes later...

I had put it somewhere sensible... of course, that ultimately meant it ended up down the back of my desk... so now I have it :) and I can upload my pictures!

:heart: s33r
Well, it's now 2003, and I am now 20 years old.  No, that's not twenty, it's twenteen... I like being a teenager too much to stop just yet ;)

Someone asked me at about 1am this morning about my new years resolutions.  It's not something I tend to do... I mean, sure I make resolutions, but not necessarily at new year.  Anyway, recent resolutions are - to try and say more in comments than just 'that's a nice picture', because it means more to me if someone says why it's nice, or how it could be better, and so it's only fair if I do the same for other people.  Also, to try and sort things out in my love life (it's pretty good really, just some things I need to sort out for myself).  Last of all, to try and save up some money, to go on holiday with.  I never have any money, because I always spend it.  So, I intend to try and get a part time job, and to not spend all my money.  Wish me luck.  I had a conversation with my grandad the other day, and money came up.  He said he'd have to try and think of a way of helping me save some of my money, and should he patent it... I said, if it works, he should definitely patent it! So, we shall see. To be fair, if I'm determined enough I usually manage things, and I'm pretty determined this time.  
As far as uni is concerned, the sort of 'I will do my work early and not end up writing essays at 3am the morning before they're due in' resolution - I don't make those, cause I know I'll break them.  I simply don't seem to manage it.  Even when I think yeah, I'll get it done now, a week before time, I still seem to end up writing essays at the last minute.  I guess it's just the way I work - under pressure.  As long as I get my notes done before the library shuts, I'll be fine...

One more thing to say.... Giz, I love you :heart:

So, here's to 2003, let's all make it a good one!
Looky look look, I've posted some more pictures! Now there's something unexpected for you ;)

I need sleep.... too many late nights and early mornings recently... roll on the lie-in tomorrow! :)
COMMENT, D*MN YOU, COMMENT!

No-one ever comments... I like to know what people think of my work, whether it's good, bad or indifferent... and if no-one comments then I can't know.
ooo lookie, I actually put some stuff up :) I don't have much to put up, as Giz is much more of a photographer than me at the moment, I don't have so much time... but I do like to play around with pictures and stuff so I've put a couple of those up as well as a couple of pictures I took :) that I finally got round to scanning in!

So yeah, enjoy, comment (constructive criticism is read and appreciated... destructive criticism is *not*), laugh, and be happy!  Cause I'm in a great mood :D
