Man, it's been a while since I've actually used Livejournal for, you know, blogging. I'm more obsessed with Tumblr at the moment but of course because I'm a social media whore I need to be up to date with LJ too. Although I use it for communities only anyway...

Not much has been happening and everything has been happening too fast at the same time. These years are crazy and I have no idea what the future holds in store for me. I guess I just have to follow the ride.

Were it not for the arts I'd go crazy.

I miss singing. I used to be able to sing well before I got sick last March (a year ago). Now I'm perpetually congested and nothing is clearing it up, so my breathing is messed up. Hopefully it's not permanent.

 I haven't posted here in a while. It's not like I have anything to post about, anyway.

Made these yesterday.

All they did was remind me that I needed to be working in Photoshop a LOT more. 

I've also been really addicted to Nneka's music lately. She's fantastic.

Aaaand... that's all.
8th-Aug-2009 10:03 pm - SYTYCD Finale Icons
elissa 1
So I stumbled upon a motherlode of (annoyingly tagged) HD SYTYCD finale photos and decided to go crazy icon-making. Was trying out new techniques with these so I apologize for the crappiness. ;D

- Comments are really appreciated! Hugs for anyone who comments or gives me suggestions on how to improve my icon-making. ^___^

This is such an amazing version of the song. <3 Everything Zero 7 and Sia do is amazing, though. 

In SYTYCD news, I'm happy with the Top 4. I'd be fine with anyone winning but I'm going to try and vote for Jeanine. I think I'd be the happiest if she won. =P I've gotta say, though -- I miss Seasons 2 & 3. And when the show was actually REALLY good. =/ S5 is a step in the right direction, though. We'll see how it goes from there!

Any of you with last.fm, add me on last.fm.com/user/rhapsodyx3 . ^________^

She should go acoustic more often; she sounds spectacular. o____O Underneath all the electronic effects she really has an awesome voice!

I'm posting this from my new blue Asus F6V laptop! *dances* It's so pretty, haha! I love it. I've been messing around with it for a while now, uploading programs and stuff. <3

Anyway, have a good day, anyone reading this!

26th-Jul-2009 06:55 pm - new layout woo
elissa 1
I got this new layout (dodoki.livejournal.com) today! The advertisement ruins it all, but it's alright. Too lazy to get a new one. =P And it's a freaking awesome layout, just the ad kinda looks out of place, haha. It's a Cloud layout because I'm going to finally continue playing Final Fantasy 7, which takes forever, so wish me luck! ^____^

I HATE being stuck here for the summer. I need to go somewhere else, ugh. I mean, it's nice to relax and all but there's absolutely nothing to do here. (partly why I'm starting FF7 back up again, yay!)

Anyway, I have a terrible headache right now. I hate migraines. >_______< They need to find an Insta!Cure for migraines. As well as AIDS and stuff like that, but migraines for sure. =D

I love Sia n____n She's pretty much the coolest person ever and makes freaking amazing music. <3

I've been working on my blending! I think I'm getting a *bit* better. Slowly but surely, yeah? It's nice to get back in the swing of things ^___^

Here are some new blends:

So I got a R4 for my DS! Now I can get all the games I want for free, illegally. :3 The utter joy! I'm such a thief, lol. It's okay, cause I love Nintendo, and my love makes up for the illegal-ness of the R4. x3 Or I'll keep telling myself that! Anyway, I've got so many games now... more than I can handle! I'll be done with them all in twenty years or so, LOL. The DS has such an extensive library of games; so many games are freaking amazing. Right now I'm working my way through Drawn to Life and LoZ - Phantom Hourglass, both amazing games. But by far, my favorite DS games are TWEWY and the Ace Attorney series. Freaking amazing. <3

I also downloaded the America's Next Top Model game for the lulz, and it was freaking TERRIBLE. One of the worst games I've every played. You basically cycle between "eat fruit - practice aspect of modeling - eat fruit -practice aspect of modeling - speak with random model accidentally, who I think is the only other model in the house LOL - eat fruit - go to judging panel and make it through, because you can't get eliminated." It's SO repetitive. There's no challenge, it's just the same stuff over and over and over again. I was bored five minutes into it. The sad thing is that if a lot more work was put into the game, and if there was a lot more to do, it could have been an incredible game. But sadly there's nothing to do and it looks thrown together in five minutes. Actually, now that I think of it, it doesn't even resemble ANTM at all. *sigh* I love the show as well, so I was really hoping for it to be a good game. Ah well!

I'M SICK ON SUMMER VACATION! >___________< The days I'm sick should not count as summer vacation! Ugh. ;___; I hate runny noses so much. I don't need this much mucus, nose. Stop making so much, kay and thanks. T__T Oh well, hopefully it will go away soon! ^__^ It's not that bad, haha.

Also, I'm trying to learn Japanese via My Japanese Coach on DS, HAHAHA!! I'm really ~*~dame~*~ at it, though. Dame = bad. xDD
2nd-Jul-2009 11:09 pm - My TWEWY altered book
elissa 1
So I altered a book to a TWEWY theme for an art project. It's finally done, and here are photos of all the pages! ^___^
You'll have to excuse my fingers in a lot of the photos, haha. I had to hold the pages down. xD

The cover:

(inside cover says "~ THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU" )

The page in between the two photos is a "window", it flips and covers one of the photos with blue transparent material while revealing the other.

Yay for unrelated pockets! This pocket actually contains printouts of pins, hahaha.

The text says "Give away what you need". ^____^

I messed up this page with the quote at the top. Ughhh. >____> The text says "I do not get people."

(This is a window as well. I like the text on these pages quite a bit. :3 )

I suppose you could tell me that this page is unrelated, but I was just having so much fun cutting up magazines! xD I think it gives off a TWEWY-esque feeling, so it's all good. ^_____^

And finally, the back cover:

Ahhh, these photos make the book look really really gross. Ah well. I'm not the best artist anyway. x3 Anyway, hope you guys liked my altered book! It was a lot of fun to make. >w< If you want bigger versions of the pictures, I can link you, but I don't see why you would want to see this crap in any more pixels than I've already showed you, LOL.

Wow, it's been almost a month since I last posted here. o__o I've been really busy, ten million buckets of schoolwork and all. We had the most insane math final - it was five hours long and extremely difficult. >___> I wanted to get up, trash the test, and just walk out though. I think I barely passed, but we'll see.

Anyway, school is over! I would add so many more exclamation points to the last sentence, but I think that'd be annoying to anyone reading, haha. My middle school goes until 9th grade, first year of high school, so at the end of 9th grade we have a graduation commemorating our completion of our time at the school and our parting of ways. Now everyone goes to different boarding schools / high schools all around the world. It's bittersweet. Bitter in that I'm leaving a lot of my friends, sweet in that I'm moving on to new things and moving up in the world. I'm really excited to experience new places, meet new people, more stuff like that. Graduation was alright; it felt amazing walking across the stage, but the rest of it was blah. The afterparty sucked, though. There wasn't even a "Congratulations Class of 2009" cake! When do afterparties not have cake? They threw shawarmas at us, though. >_____< Haha, it was nice spending time with people I might not see again though, haha.

So now it's summer vacation! My brother is here and my sister is coming tomorrow, so I'm really happy. =D Now I'm really relaxed, really relieved that school is finally over and that I'm done with that stupid four/five-hour long math final. xD;; It's going to be a really nice summer, although I'm stuck here in the intense heat. Seriously, I called the weather robot yesterday and it told me that the weather outside was 115 degrees F. It'll only get hotter from now as well. *sigh* Oh disgusting Saudi heat, how I detest thee! ^__^ Ah, well. We might go somewhere for a week or so but the majority of my time this vacation will be here, I think. Still, it's nice to get a break from school and there's a lot to do here (until all my friends leave LOL)!

Anyway! That's enough writing for now! *dances around*
