Thinking about attempting to become an Utaite or a fan-cover-artist online.

I managed to make a pop filter outta stuff I had at home. I think mom had a few karaoke mics stashed away somewhere...hope they still work and can connect to my laptop. Online people say that "Blue" brand mics are the best...most say the Yeti or Snowball or whatnot are the best for novices...unfortunately, Blue brand stuff doesn't seem to be offered on this side of the country and the cheapest one is $70 online before shipping. 

Hmm...I've never tried to use audio programs...I can't even make AMVs or whatnot 'cuz I never bothered to learn how to use moviemaker etc.

Anyway, just a thought. I might attempt something and not say anything. Probably won't even have the guts to post it.

Well then, I guess this is just my journal to say I'm not dead.
Lemons by saphsoul
Lemons
After watching Kuroko S1 ep 17 I thought: "those lemons look good" And the recipe was so easy too.

17 hours later they're a hit. oh gosh, they are so tasty.

Directions:
1) Wash lemons really well (you'll be eating the rinds too)
2) Slice the lemons as thinly as possible...to the point they are translucent if you must.
3) Layer the lemon slices. 1 layer on the bottom of a container, cover in a few spoonfuls of honey, next layer, repeat. The lemons shouldn't be swimming in honey but there should be enough to coat all the lemon slices.
4) Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.

I can't give you an exact number of hours to leave them because I've seen posts that say 6 hours all the way to posts saying 24 hours or more. I left mine in the fridge for 17-ish hours and they were good. I can only imagine that the longer you leave them to marinate the better because the lemons only get sweeter.

*note, I did not add any water to the stuff. Literally it's just lemons and honey. The acidity of the lemons reacts with the honey and I guess it sorta breaks down the honey to turn it all liquidy. The honey will turn to liquid...like, juice liquid. Not sure if that's cuz a lot of lemon juice leaves the lemons or what, but regardless the juice is to die for.

So...haven't really been on DA much.

Tumblr is a lot of fun but I find DA is still more personal. Tumblr's where I go to creep other people but I still feel like DA's where I can express more of myself.

Sorry for the lack of art...lost my phone cable so even though I got new pictures of new arts and crafts I can't upload them just yet.

And to my friends that use my DA as a way to keep up with my boring life here's what's happening:

Work.

That is all.

Well...if you all want details I'm working part time now...some days I hate it, other days I don't mind. I never thought I'd miss student life so much. I'm starting to think even Midterms would be a blessing if they were all I had to worry about.

Good news: my university institution finally got back to me and gave me a straight answer about applying to return and such...about darn time after wasting 3 semesters of my life...a year and a half down the drain. They took a year and a half of my life because none of the admin would give me a straight "yes/no" whether my degree existed or not. As if funeral arrangements and getting my life (yes, I have this) together wasn't enough. Stupid university people.

Seriously, I think that a university degree doesn't prove how smart you are, it just gives you the authority to screw everyone else over. A friend of mine is pregnant and she's trying to book her checkups and such and the receptionists are all like "This appointment has to be done exactly 3 days before the next one...if you miss it then the results have to be handed in 24 hours after the appointment...also, you have to time both appointments to fall within your 10th-13th week of pregnancy or it all goes out the window. By the way, we are booked solid for the next 4 weeks, if you want an appointment within these weeks you should have booked it 6 months in advance." To make her feel better I summed it up: "PhD means you can make up your own hours of operation, make sure to be unavailable when the average person has a day off, screw the general public over and get paid for it. Also, from the way they just told you to book in advance you'd have to have booked your prenatal care/ultrasound before you found out you were pregnant...or before you even conceived. What a crappy system." The university admin sound very much like that to me right now, wasting a year and a half of my life all because they wouldn't answer a yes/no question.

Anyway, to my friends at the University: I'll be back soon...I won't be able to graduate with all of you...but if I work my butt off maybe I can come close.

I miss you all and I wanna hang out again, you know, dinner at Tim's, cooking curry together, walking to church, gaming on Saturdays etc. I miss it all.

RWBY Rune Rayne  motion lineart by saphsoul
RWBY Rune Rayne motion lineart
Ok...so the idea for this weapon has been in my head for the longest time...years in fact.

The character is actually just extra. heh heh. 

This is the first time I've ever tried to pose a character in motion (^^' phails, right?) and right now I'm a little proud of it...the next time I look at it I'll probably be all "OMIGOSH it's hideous--why did I ever think to post it-it deserves to burn!" but in this moment of pride I'll post it. Unfortunately, since it's my first motion based drawing I have no clue how to draw clothes on the thing...*cries*

Anyway, this weapon has been in my head for the longest time but I never knew how to draw it. Seriously, whenever I had an OC that needed a bladed weapon it was always this and a scythe.

It took Monty Oum's RWBY to finally bring this thing outta my head and onto paper...so thanks, Monty.

Anyway, here's some brief outline notes about this OC...and no, I am in no way affiliated with Rooster Teeth or the amazing Monty Oum. They can art...I can't.

So this is one of the OCs I made for a team in RWBY. It looks like Monty really likes adding guns to his weapons...the sniper scythe (coolest thing ever btw) and the shotgun fists...of course, he does have characters that seem to rely on blades only like Jaune and Pyrrah (to my knowledge). Anyway, I won't bore the internet with too much, but I created my team to be bladed weapons only...so...yeah...not very smart I guess heh heh.

I really don't care.

About the translation you saw. Keep in mind that translators, even the ones working for big companies, still make mistakes. If we want to know what was really said, we go to the original RAWs from Japan, unaltered, and learn how to read and understand it fully.

I just told off someone who made a big FAQ list. Made me really angry. Anyway, I wrote down what I wanted to say in a comment there.


Here it is above. I'm not saying I support or deny what is said, I'm just against the way this person chose to say it. I mean, people are entitled to their own opinion and getting all mad about it and being in your face about things really gives fans a bad name and makes you look really immature.

This is a work of fiction so why are people getting all mad at each other?

Hello! I love Onegai Oboete NeilxFeldt story of yours. When will you update? I've seen it before in fanfiction.net I think. I just want to know what happens to them... because I ship them so hard. >u<

Thank you.

I've been meaning to work on stuff like that, but I've been very busy. Apparently, life and creativity hate each other and are always competing to see which one gets my attention.

I don't like un-inspired stories, so whenever I get the urge/inspiration to write again, I'll post more.

Thanks for the comment and I'm sorry for not giving you a proper answer. I don't know when the next chapter will be out.
