Ahahaha a prime example of my chuunibyou days
I discovered how to make a Photoshop brush that behaves almost exactly the same way oils do. To download the thing click here.
It’s a Tool (Smudge) so you should load it into Tool Presets. And also play around with Strength to find what percentage works best for you.
If you can’t install it properly, you can find a tutorial on how to make it here.
Preeeettyy much played Dragon Nest all day. Broken up with some cookie clicker and the new episode of Noragami. Annnd answering emails. Also ate one of the nikuman I got when we went to the oriental market on Saturday…or was it Sunday? I dunno. But that was a thing. Wah.
So…yeah…really nothing much else to say. Suki was at work all day, Kyo-kun left somewhere and got back around midnight. Not much goin on. Halfway through the last level cap though…!
Ahaha so I forgot Friday was a thing apparently. Well here it is.
Hm…right, ceramics. Finished glazing my cups and glazed a few bowls. Class was over quickly, but I planned on returning to finish drimmeling off the glaze that dripped from the cups I fired earlier…buuut that didn’t happen.
Went to the photo lab to meet with a kouhai who asked me to show her how to use the mount…ing…machine…thing. Adhesive machine? Something like that. She wasn’t there so I started getting ready to print. Buuuut it turns out the server was dead soooo no printing for anyone. Met up with the kouhai and showed her how to machine since she had apparently printed everything on Friday even though we still had two class days after that like ?!?!?!?? Tonikaku, we told sensei, who was actually at a conference out of state with out tech guy who manages the servers (who told us the servers were dead), and so she reluctantly moved our due date to Wednesday instead of Monday, whoo~ Since the lab would be closed all spring break until the Sunday before we get back…and even then it’s only open from 1p-11p soooo yeh not happening.
After that, tried to sew some but the sewing machines left out were the old ones and they were being gross and uncooperative soooo that didn’t happen because I’d rather turn my piece in late and it not be half crappily done…And by then it was about time to meet up with Jisu-san for lunch, so I took the camera bag and my figure sketchbook and hauled everything over to the village.
As expected, the food wasn’t the best. Also Jisu-san and Kurisu-san showed up with two other people, presumably from K-club. They seemed pretty nice though.
After that, headed home to pack but ran into Yaya and Wei-san and an acquaintance of Yaya’s talking outside Wei-san’s place…so I stayed a bit to chat as well. Somehow it came up that Yaya was leaving today so she offered to take me in place of Wei-san, which I eventually agreed to. When we all parted ways, Yaya said she wanted to go eat, so I accompanied her for sushi and boba tea. I actually paid for it this time, as payback for when I forgot my wallet the other day when we went to buy a teakettle and ended up also buying sheets and snacks ahaha. We were going to leave about five or six, but that turned into seven and by then Yaya’s mom didn’t want her leaving “so late.” Soooo after I had already packed up everything I was informed that we would not be leaving until five in the morning…but then we went to eat again so I suppose it’s kai, ha. We went to the usual Italian place. I put my leftovers in the freezer hoping they will keep until I return. l’D Annnd pretty much just went to sleep after I got back. Everything was packed so there wasn’t really anything else to do.
Woke up at five-ish as planned buuuut well let’s just say Yaya ended up sleeping until nine. We hit the road around ten. Traffic was bad so even though we took the toll road it still took us a good three hours. Stopped for food once we hit my city, she dropped me off, and then we parted ways. It was raining, which was a bit annoying, but watevs.
Hm…Suki and Kyo-kun were both there, since it was Saturday. Hmm…we didn’t do much but also did a lot at the same time…? Maa, it was a nice change of pace. Suki and Kyo were making tacos shortly after I got there. Flute-kun came over for a bit and we watched a movie called VHS. Ahaha it was creepy yesgood. Also started a documentary but…stopped. Ahaha. Also cookie clicker. That happened. Theennn sleep around….one or two…?
Woke up~ I was the first to wake up even though it was after noon. I guess it was technically only after eleven, but due to DST it was…after noon. Set up Chiyuki and did some laundry.
Kyo-kun left, Suki made us a couple bb pancakes and then we went to the gym for yoga class. I knew I didn’t like yoga, but sometimes doing things with friends is more fun, and I hadn’t done it in a long time so, hey, maybe it’ll be different now yeah nope. Still don’t like yoga, haha. I’ve always been pretty flexible, so none of the poses are really difficult for me - I didn’t even break a single sweat. Also it’s so slow it’s…frustrating, I guess? And it puts me to sleep, but only after. Like, no, I don’t need any more help feeling tired, that’s just a constant feeling for me, thx. I mean, I can see how people like it, it’s just not for me. I’ll keep going to the gym with Suki though. I’ll just ded on the treadmill and then sauna wah there’s a sauna much excite I’ve never been in one before~
Signing up for the free 7-day pass was a little…wah. The lady in front told me I had to talk to some…someone, but that person was out when we got there. So I went to the yoga class and came back after when Suki and two of her friends hit the pool…I thought we were just doing yoga so I didn’t bring my swimsuit
also haven’t shaved my legs since October probs ahahaha. So I went to talk to the person, and it turns out he was…hm…one of those socially intimidating people. Like, you know, they’re intimidating because they’re so…um…c…charismatic, yeah. Like Red-kun. But this guy was around my age I guess because he was kind of easy to talk to. Also he kept almost constant eye contact but it wasn’t creepy like usual. I tried to look away but I didn’t want him to feel like I was ignoring him…?!?! Both his ears were pierced so I found myself staring at the diamond studs a lot ahahaha. I also started wondering why I wasn’t as uncomfortable as usual thinking like, maybe’s he’s gay, but he doesn’t have gay face but, omg, you can’t just think someone’s not gay because they don’t look gay and etc.
He started asking about my goals and such and I was like ooooooh man how am I going to tell him I don’t want to be set up on this big ordeal (he was talking about training regimes and trainer meet ups and aaaahhh) BUT he eventually asked where I go to school (THANK JESUS I WROTE THAT I WAS A STUDENT) and so I told him and he was like “woh. that’s a good school. wat’re you doin back here?” And I was laik, “sprang brak,” and he was laik, “Aaaa, y u no say so?” and I was like ahahahahaha how do I seem like I’m interested in a membership without actually being interested in a membership so I quickly, “Yeah, I’ll be graduating in May and I was thinking of moving back here so that’s why I’m looking at gyms [internal nervous laughter please buy that it’s not entirely a lie ahahaha].” So…yeah, it ended seamlessly shortly after. He just gave me his card and said that I’ve spoken with him whenever I wanna come back. Ahahaha. Maybe one day I, too, can has charisma.
Aaaaaafter that. To-san had called while I was in yoga class, so I called him back and that went marvelously as usual. Met up with Suki-tachi shortly after and then Suki and I left to IHOP, whoo~
Met up with Momo-san at IHOP…well, we were there first and she joined us after. Split some crepes and an appetizer basket wiv Suki. Talked about some drama amogst their other friends. Then left for Suki’s place again.
Suki took a shower aaaannnddd I played Dragon Nest, awww yeh.
Then went back to IHOP, met up with Momo-san from earlier and we came with another friend who is Suki’s neighbor wah. Had an ice cream sundae but they totes skimped on the fudge bubuuu. We talked there for a while then headed back to Suki’s.
Aaaannnd bedtime after some passive-aggressive cleaning on Suki’s part and some derpin around on my part woop woop.
So today was my last real day of school before spring break. Finally decided I’d give in and head home for a bit so I asked Wei-san if I could hitch a ride back with him. He agreed, so I guess I’m going back Friday. Still not sure where I’ll end up though…Kono toki ni, takusan furusato ni tsundeiru tomodachi ga hosii…onna no. Mou. Doko ni neru kanaaaaa…
My burn’s looking better. The toasted skin is peeling off to reveal skin that is less red and more normal coloured, whoo! Aaaaalso I had an allergic reaction to the gauze I used yesterday soooo there’s a rash there now on top of it, as if it wasn’t itchy enough already…
Sculpture today. Had a lot of demos and sensei looked at sketches. He liked one of the ones I liked the least, of course. l’D Then went to lunch with Jisu-san. Aa! Kono aida 「daisuki」 tte…bikkurishita! Mochiron, tomo-suki desu kedooo waaahhh bikkurishitaaaa…!
Then figure. I actually drew something I didn’t hate, uwah yay~ I also got straight As on the skeleton feet *-*! They’re probably the first As I’ve gotten in a drawing class I think. Aaaaand they’re not happening again, haha. I still got Cs on the feet muscles drawings. Also sensei gave us homework over break, ew. Also drawing I sensei came in and watched over us for the last part of class since figure sensei had to catch a plane to go to a funeral u.u
Painting…did nothing. I don’t have a frame to stretch or an idea to discuss even…Went to the lab to try and find something for a bit but to no avail. Went back to class for about half an hour and then everyone headed out so I did, too. Walked over to Yaya’s. We had an NSCS meeting. There was pizza~ And after we went to the grocery store because they were having a deal on kettles aaah~ it was only $7 and it’s waayyyy better than that WalMart one I bought for a similar price. Stainless steel, bigger, and a button to release the spout cover so I don’t burn my hands, uwah~ I feel like a shufu steaking out sales ahaha~ Also bought some microfiber sheets for the bed. Hnnggg they’re so soft and smooth~ Aaaand only $17 what a steal wah~ I love that place they always have such good deals. It’s where I got my rice cooker. And my bathroom scale.
Then~ Went home. Checked dash. Watched the new Kill la Kill…and…now I should order stuff off Amazon but I won’t be here to get it maybe I should wait til I get back…wah. I still have to pack…I should prolly check the weather…
Waah was deathly afreid of the ceramics class this mourning uguu. But sensei just responded to my email saying that accidents happen and he’s sorry I was tasked with the clean up because glaze EVERYWHERE. Wah.
Got cups out of the cone 10 kiln. Every single one fused to the disk D:! Mendokusaaaiiii. As if I didn’t have enough to do already. I didn’t know iron ran so much grah. Spent the rest of class dremmeling off the excesses <.<
Photo…we didn’t have a midterm today. Not complaining. I was bored so I printed my 8 prints I think I’m going to use. I actually got two out of those ~40 I shot yesterday, awww yeh.
Yaya wanted Thai food so that happened. Except this time they were really slow and out of soup so they gave us this salad thing with peanuts on it for godknowwot reason. Didn’t eat it of course. But it’s kai I had Thai tea and green curry and yes good lD
Fabrics class…almost finished sewing, grah. The bobbin ran out of thread three times D:! I’ll prolly work on it tomorrow after classes. Went to jr. ceramics sensei’s gallery talk after that. It was interesting~ Then worked on Baku and stuff for tomorrow. Jr. ceramics sensei came in the metal shop to use the sandblaster (or something) and he commented on how nice Baku looked uwu specifically how clean the surface was comparing it to others’. I’ve been getting quite a few compliments on my clean surfaces on my 3D work this semester. I thought I was a minimalist out of lazyness for a while but maybe I actually just like simple, clean things. That’s prolly why I like making logos, too, ahaha.
Tonikaku. Made a quick stop to the library before heading home because metal sensei wanted us to bring a book tomorrow. Aaaannnnd finished my green tea aisu…and now…bed time.
Also I don’t know if I wrote this but Hana-chan’s parents sent me a care package a few days ago yaaay~ So I can now live off of kit-kats and twizzlers yesssss.
You’ve no idea how long I’ve been waiting to use that title.
I mean, I guess you have but no.
I named 2nd metal sculpture Baku. I dunno why it just seems to fit him.
Soooo as usual I spent the morning sleeping and then trying to drag myself out of bed to be productive. Didn’t work until like I dunno…five I suppose. But then everything was kind of frozen the fawk over. So I went over to Yaya’s and we watched Katanagatari and Atlantis and I finally saw Treasure Planet for the first time whoo! The hype for that movie has been building up for me since I first saw its previews when it first came out…and it was def worth it uguuu. Kinda reminded me of Brave, but with a father(-figure) and son. Uwah. Such greatsies. Also my 8 AM was canceled tomorrow so I stayed over there til like one and then came back and knocked the fawk out.
No ceramics, sadness. So started the day with photo. Got our new project which is…well we all for fortune cookies and we have to make a series based on our fortunes super coolsies. Worked on Baku all through lunch because Jisu-san was studying. Then fabric…worked a lot on fabric, wah. Theeennn…more sanding Baku. Brief break for ASA meeting. Maru-kouhai-chan-san told me we were having meetings every other week now, when I asked if the meeting last week had been canceled, and then I was added to the mailing list so hopefully I’ll get those now, wah. Then moar Baku time until like…I dunno ten-ish. Then went home and worked on those feet drawings until like two. And then sleep.
So much ded today. I fell asleep in Figure and almost in metal which would have been bad because demos of gun blue wah ;o;! Had crit in painting….almost…done…I think…wah. Sensei wants us to get canvases and new subject materials by Thursday @_@!
Did some photo stuff after that on m way to dinner. 1. Actually ate dinner for once and 2. ate alone next to some noisy people wah. Then…the cold trek back to the art building. It’s been pretty cold lately. No complaints here. None at all. Bring it on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.
Worked on ceramics for a bit. FINALLY trimmed the last of my bowls and then was going to FINALLY finish glazing cups for cone ten firing buuuuuuut that didn’t end well. I mean I guess I’m just physically exhausted because I felt pretty awake but I tried to life one of the glaze buckets to put back on the shelf aaaaand we didn’t make it. Soooo there was about five gallons of toxic glaze all over the everything. And I’m just standing there freaking the fuq out like hokaiomgwatdowaahhh
Imean clean it up yes clean
wait but I have to tell someone we’re out of iron saturate wah
textingtei-sempai for labtech’s number WAIT WAH NO wHY wasthatmyfirstthought
right look for phone numbers on the kiln sheets
yep not there
op but there’sthe number for lab tech’s prodigy-good-at-everything
boyfrand should I
Burea-san yes good text her maybeshewillknowthings
texting yes good now start clean with wat with sponges? hokai yes good like scrubbing the decks with a toothbrush
also finish glazing cup and put away glazes? sure why not
aaaaah Burea-san has come to my rescue yay I am saved
"Ooooohhhhh….I’m going to find a custodian."
Right. We have those. And they have mops. And things…that…clean floors and…other various things yes good right you do that and I will…keep sponging stuff yes.
So I calmed down by that point. I think that the fact that my first thought was literally to deal with it by myself says a lot about me. I absolutely hate relying on other people. I don’t even think about it. Also I’ve legit like never ever messed anything up relatively badly before college so I totes have no idea how to deal with stuff like this. Warui gekusei ni natta ;_; I never had to rely on anyone before except for stuff I wasn’t expected to do like keep a roof over my head of course. Even now…well my text to Burea-san went along the lines of, “Hey yo I wrecked all the shit, think it’s be totes kai if I just clean it up?” wtf is wrong with me oh right raised in isolation from the world.
Needless to say I didn’t finish glazing my cups…I stayed and helped the custodian clean the everything for the next 1.5 hours until the building closed (he was done at that point). He took care of the floor with a mop (which was the majority of it) and I cleaned the tables and chairs and stuff. And after he was done with the floor (“It’s ready, ma’am!” wah such cutsies) I finished up the…everything around it ahahahaha. I also cleaned the floor by the wheels a bit because uguuu GHIBLI MOVIES TAUGHT ME THAT CLEANING MAKES PEOPLE LIKE YOU DO NOT BE ANGRY WITH ME WAH I AM THE SORRIES mai arms are the weaks and frails for I am a stick who has only lifted tablet pens uguu ;^;! My hands are stained red to prove it…!
ALSO IT WAS FREE PANCAKE DAY AND NO ONE WOULD GO WITH ME SO I DID NOT GET FREE PANCAKES AND wah today was just very sort of sad making. u.u
And even after all this I still don’t get to sleep on time ahahaha.
