ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (hbic)
And it only took me a little over two weeks to let you know that. Thanks to everyone who comforted me on my last entry btw! ♥ Grad school's been fun so far, though I still get the nerves and a heaving fit at least an hour before leaving from work to go to class, but it's cool, it's cool.

I'm doing pretty well and getting good grades (surprisingly really good grades o_o) on my case studies for Marketing class, but doing rather poorly in socializing with my Marketing classmates. (Seriously, though, how does one go about initiating contact and properly responding to small talk? I fucking hate small talk. Also, I swear my classmates must think I only speak when there are grades involved.)

Advanced Academic Writing class, on the other hand, well. It still frustrates me at moment that I hadn't been exempted from this class, especially since all the concepts being discussed so far (and most likely everything that will be discussed later) are concepts I'd learned about during my freshman year as an undergrad and even taught twice after I'd graduated from college, but I figured I could use the review and the practice, especially since I pretty much suck at keeping my focus during actual writing. (HELLO, EVIDENCE RIGHT HERE.)


Also, still need serious intervention on my procrastination tactics.


I'm still pretty much at the mercy of Avengers fandom, but I haven't been doing anything but reading Bucky/Steve fic and doodling Thor/Loki things when I'm bored at work lately. I have finished my line art for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb and, uh, posted these two pieces:


Fandom: The Avengers, Brave
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Princess Merida
Rating: G
Warnings: Crack?

{ I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! }


Fandom: Thor, The Avengers, X-Men: First Class
Pairing/Characters: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Thor/Loki
Rating: G
Warnings: So much crack. 8|

{ WHAT-- }
Are you sensing a pattern with my posts here? Shh, just ignore it.


Anyway, I'm on leave today because my dad just lost his job and is out with my mum renewing their broker's and CPA licenses, and I was asked to babysit my little brothers (one of whom is currently suffering from a really bad tummy), soooo I'll just be forcing myself to finish my goddamn case study for tomorrow (seriously, Gin, it's just definitions this time--fucking type the shit down already!) and hopefully I'll have time to doodle before the folks get home and Mum lords over my actions again. XD


PS. SUITS IS BACK HNGHHRHGHHH. One of my RL friends had been going all "TEAM PARALEGAL!" on Twitter yesterday, and I couldn't help myself, I had to raise the flag for Team Harvey, and he was all, "...well damn. Now that would be a twist." YEP. IF ONLY. But, eeee, Suits!

Hi, I have been abducted by the Avengers fandom but will probably be back soon--monogamy not promised. I have [livejournal.com profile] hs_merlin and [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin to get all jiggy with, as long as long-overdue fills for previous requests as usual (I know you guys are getting tired of my lameness already ;;), and--well. Merlin and Arthur, Bradley and Colin. ALL MY FUCKING FEELINGS THAT NO SUPERHERO TEAM CAN SIMPLY BLOW AWAY, PERFECT BOTTOMS AND CHRIS EVANS' FACE (AND HIS EVERYTHING--seriously. I had never liked a blond and blue-eyed boy-next-door type until Bradley Fucking James, and now there's two of them what the fuck) BE DAMNED.

In other news, I'm starting with grad school next week! This is exciting and fucking scary at the same time, not to mention how I'll have to endure limiting my daily budget even further now that my school fees have temporarily crippled my finances. Good news is the big boss at the office told me last week that he's spoken to the president of the corporation about possibly giving me a huge promotion halfway through my studies? And the president said yes, so. Hopefully that will srzfax truly happen for real face. But right now I'd be happy with a decent percentage of that annual raise. oAo /claws at

Anyway, I went to karaoke with office mates late last night and am currently functioning on autopilot so, uh, thank fuck my work requires mostly mechanical functions only. I love graphic desiiiiiiiign.


Do I want to draw fan art of those two dudes from the "Call Me Maybe" MV? Yes, I do.

ETA. YOU GUYS. I'm browsing through my f-list for the first time in two weeks (/cliiiing) and I am liking that I'm seeing a shit tonne of Avengers around. I thought things would have blown over by now, but ugh--this is a legit crazy-good-crazy ass fandom now, isn't it? Well, okay, it has been for a while before the movie even premiered, but ughhhh <3333333~~~~ &butt_hearts; FOR EVERYONE!!1 ;A;

ETA2. I've been terribly busy as usual and haven't had time to READ ALL THE FIC!!! *A* at all, soooo if you guys can rec me some that'd be awesome. o: Pairings I like are Thor/Loki (★★!), Tony/Steve, Bucky/Steve (★★★!!11), a bit of Steve/Peggy (FEELS ;___;) and Tony/Pepper, Clint/Natasha, and I might be swayed towards Bruce/Natasha too actually. Bonus non-romantic Science Bros are good, too. UGH IDK THIS FANDOM REALLY EXCITES ME?

A friending meme happened sometime last week--and you know how weak I am for those things (SO WEAK)--and I made new friends, but haven't made a proper welcome post yet, so...

OHAI NEW FRIENDS HIII!


I'm Ginny: fandom addict, communication & media studies freak, random artist, wannabe rock star, [[livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka's] dragonpie, rainbow cadet.

Posting here will be sporadic because life is crazy and I can only manage my time so much, but I do constantly check my f-list and comment when I can. Tumblr also makes it easier to spazz-blog with only half a mind present, so you'll see more of me there, my love-hate relationship with it and all. I'm also on Twitter, though I usually log on there only on my mobile (for some reason, I enjoy tweeting more on mobile).

Here, have Bradley's face!



BULLETS!

All the bosses are out of the office today, so I'm spending half my time re-layouting campaign designs for other materials and the other half trying to plot out what I'll be doing for my [livejournal.com profile] hs_merlin project. AH LAHV HIGH SCHOOL BOYS. Um. Yeah.

The other night I watched Parked. I broke. But it was really beautiful! But thinking about particular scenes still does terrible things to my feelings. ;_;

Have you guys read A Dabba Doo Time (You’ll Have A Gay Old Time) on [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games? Voting for it ended yesterday, I think, but it isn't too late to enjoy it in its pure ingenuity and cracktastic glory. Check out [livejournal.com profile] lil_lollypop36's art for it, too! :D

Ah, but I should finish my piece for [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot's Celtic Project soon. Going on vacation with my family and relatives from my mum's side this weekend, so I'll probably be spending most of it in the cabin doing just this. Socializing? What socializing? I'll do that when there's food.

Kind of excited for this!

The Official Website of DOKISSATEN MAID & BUTLER CAFÉ is now open!

This is only the beginning. From now on, we will be regularly updating our new home with news, events, pictures, downloadable goodies, and character profiles of our meidos and butlers. And don’t forget the upcoming 4koma and manga!

WELL. COUNTDOWN FAIL. XD I've been so busy panicking over my [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games submission that I had not been able to make time for an update yesterday. Ah, but at least I managed to finish my entry even if it took me until the last minute of the deadline to submit everything. D8 Although I just looked at my work again, and I could have done so many things so much better still. Curse you RL-defined time restrictions! (Also, to [livejournal.com profile] moiraes's point about how one should never look at their work again after submission, curse you bad habit of mine!)

I still haven't signed up for [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends and I'm starting to think I won't be at all. I'll have to be dealing with grad school soon enough, and I'm not sure how well I'll be able to manage my time when that happens. But we'll see. Artist sign ups remain open until April 1st, and I can be so weak for you, fandom.

--Just went to turn down the air conditioning in my brothers' room, and I stepped on their Buzz Lightyear on the way out and slammed one of their drawers on my fingers in the process. OH I AM IN PAIN I AM IN SO. MUCH. OIANIN.. ffs.

TWO DAYS until we launch our official website. For now, please check the following out for updates:

If Shiki ^ were into girls, I'd totally date him. :P



[Error: unknown template qotd]

I don't know who mine is (my RL friends who know JE used to say I look like a RyoKame lovechild o_o), but look what I came across as I was checking my f-list last night:


8DDD;;;


Obviously they're both awesome dudes, too. EDIT. Find out just how awesome Yara is here! (I hope you don't mind me including a bit of your post in the screencap, [livejournal.com profile] yararanger! HEART_BEAN HUGS FOR MY SWEET POTATO just because. ♥)

My body kind of shut off on me at approximately 3 o'clock this afternoon. Too much work, not enough sleep (stayed up all night reading [livejournal.com profile] cruentum's Edit the Sad Parts (beautiful, beautiful fic ;_;)), obvious reasons. Tonight I pledge to finish my [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games piece and sleep before midnight. Yes.

Chatted with my friend [livejournal.com profile] strawberrychainsaw about ~things~ today, and she told me re: last night's LJ post to "CONFESS GIN CONFESS!!!" while waving a hypothetical Bible at my face. XDD Yeaaaah, that's not happening though.

Random realisation of the day: If [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate and I swapped brains it wouldn't make that big of a difference. Her brain + my brain = no more feeling like such lonely weirdos, wot.


i just want to walk beside them forever with a blower in each of my hands.

HAPPY DRAGON YEAR, EVERYONE! :D


I take special pride in having been born a(n earth) dragon because, HELLO, LEGENDARY MYSTICAL CREATURE. 8D Also I like to imagine being under Merlin's command. ;) My CNY resolutions: work much much harder for the things that truly matter, establish a much much stronger relationship with the people I love (read: talk more openly with them and stop being such an emotionally-constipated freak), and be braver. I can do this.

Anyway! Today is a holiday, but I'm still feeling pretty damn tired and I wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow. And the rest of the week. If I can have my way, I'll just isolate myself in a room for days and read all the fic and draw all the art and just sleep and nibble on choice snacks in between. But for now I have to work my ten-and-a-half-hour day, finish design commissions, and accomplish my grad school application.

I am actually also planning on trying for a scholarship to Central European University next year. Their gender studies program looks promising, I can possibly specialize in queer theory if I want to, and I've heard good things about the school, so... Lol. STUDYING: IT TURNS ME ON.


In other news, lookit! We have a new puppy:



Named him Blond Junno after this idiot, but hey_cee@Twitter calls him "BJ" so we can pretend that he's also called "Bradley James". XD He's a two-month-old golden retriever and labrador mix, adorably round and at the moment nearly smaller than legos. He's only been with us a week (I shall miss him during the days that I am not at home), but he's already just as much a part of the family as these two rascals, who have a love/terrified-of relationship with him right now. It's very amusing to watch.

Speaking of watching things, I still cannot relate to everyone's Reichenbach feels because MURPHY D8 (aka work, more work, most? And my room being taken away from me because of my great aunts and uncles visiting again. Why'd I decide to go back to living with my grandfolks again? Lol my life. I did manage to go out with friends at some point, which... awesome.) I got to watch the latest episode of Glee on TV this morning, though. Which TOTALLY NOT THE SAME THING, but I just had to say: can they just stick to performing musical numbers, please? Because they're actually still good with those.

Oh, and I've been reading the Hunger Games trilogy so I won't be a total n00b while watching the movie in March April. I've been hearing a bit of disappointment from some people about the final book, but for now I'm quite enjoying what I'm reading, though I suppose I can do without the excessive romance. Ah well, whatevs. Dystopian fiction is like fodder to me.


Also, lmao, the shit fans notice:

Fifth day of the new year from the future, hello!

Pre-grad school woes here. )




I'm not sure how many of you have heard of Sendong (international name: Washi), the typhoon that took the lives of over 1,000 people and the homes of thousands more here in our country. The place where disaster hit is very far away from where I or any of my loved ones live, but watching and reading the news about it had been sickeningly devastating nonetheless, and still is.

To be honest--and I feel a little ashamed to say this now--I had not been expecting there to be any fandom relief efforts here on LJ for the victims of the typhoon, so it was a pleasant surprise when I found out that there are actually two ongoing at the moment:


[livejournal.com profile] help_pilipinas has offerings from writers and artists from the Johnny's Entertainment fandom. Offering posts are already closed for this auction, as they have started with bidding on January 1st and will be ending the round on the 16th. If you're a JE fan and would like to donate, and receive a fanwork featuring your favourite idol, pairing or group in return, then head on over to this community now.


[livejournal.com profile] help_mindanao caters to all fandoms and features offerings for even non-fandom items. Auction posts have been up since December 30 and will remain open until January 20. You can still offer fanworks and other items here. Read their FAQ here.
I was not able to make it to the offering of [livejournal.com profile] help_pilipinas, but you can find my thread in [livejournal.com profile] help_mindanao here, here, and here. I was not planning on offering anything for the auctions, since I usually take too long to finish my piece (I still owe [livejournal.com profile] rheasilvia and [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka theirs), but because there has only been a small amount of offerings for this auction, I've decided to put up my own as well.

If you are willing to wait for your artwork to be turned over, you can bid on my art. But what I think would really help at this point is if we can get more offerings and promotion for the project.

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps in any way they can!




I had a blast participating in [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays again this year (though I still need to read all the fic D8)! Can you guess which work is mine? ;D

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] hungerpunch! ILU, LO. KEEP ROCKING. ♥

I was not planning on offering anything for the auctions, since I usually take too long to finish my piece (I still owe [livejournal.com profile] rheasilvia and [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka theirs), but because there has only been a small amount of offerings for this auction, I've decided to put up my own as well.

If you are willing to wait for your artwork to be turned over, you can bid on my art. But what I think would really help at this point is if we can get more offerings and promotion for the project.

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps in any way they can!




I had a blast participating in [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays again this year (though I still need to read all the fic D8)! Can you guess which work is mine? ;D

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] hungerpunch! ILU, LO. KEEP ROCKING. ♥
ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (not happy)


Hi, Livejournal friends-list. I am avoiding you and Tumblr like I plague for the next two hours, because I have yet to watch Merlin 4x02 and my Internet has decided to take its sweet little time in getting it to me and--hello, is this for real? Do I actually care about being spoiled for once? Oh, show, the ways you change me!

So, ah, instead I am going bleed my ass off trying to finish as much of this freelance project as I can because, well, money, money, money, Ginny needs more money, really. It is during times like this that I am very glad that I had chosen design as a career, because if illustrating had given me this much excruciating pain, I probably wouldn't be drawing fan art anymore. But I would love to be paid for illustrations anyway. ;;

Also: *hugs all the NEWS fans* I know you guys have heard this countless times already since yesterday, but we know how you feel. We've been there and it hurts like a fucking bitch, and it will make you feel like you just want to leave (like I have and have actually done) or just cry in mourning endlessly, but you mustn't blame anyone and you must never lose the love you have for the boys (I still love KAT-TUN, each and every one of them, endlessly) and give yourself time to be happy for them, for having the courage to do what they think is best for themselves, and remember that these boys do care about each other and while they may be feeling the same pain that you are right now, times a hundred, this is a decision they all share and have understood and they are happy for those who have chosen to do what they had to and they will remain in each others hearts and always wish all the good things for each other, no matter how far apart they are.

That was a long sentence, um, but like [livejournal.com profile] ryogrande said in her own LJ, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy (despite the image above) and I hope you guys just stay strong and keep the faith, きっと大丈夫, がんばれ, etc etc etc. ♥

Woke up with a horrible back ache today, and it's making designing 23532975 projects a living hell with how fucked my sense of coordination seems to be all of a sudden, and I can't even keep my back straight for more than a minute. /KRAI

At least I can relax a bit with friends later when we visit Little Tokyo for some noms and happy tiemz. (Already warned them about my incapacity to handle things with care at the moment and apologised in advance about whatever substances I splatter onto their skin later. With the promise to lick them off ever so softly, of course.)

Anyway, I just really wanted to greet [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce a

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILYYYYY!


because I love you and wish you all the good things in the world including my pants and our plans on eloping and swimming in written and illustrated pornage together for the rest of our lives. :'3



P.S. Friends from affected areas in the UK! I hope you're all staying safe. D: *SENDS LOVE*
