*cough* Anyway... this is just a post to 1) explain a couple things about myself, and 2) why I never post anything nowadays.
First off, I generally add people as my friends because I see everyone as a good person (cept those that I added because they're psychos and they fascinate me *points to Styx*) and unless they say they want me to go away or they don't like me, I don't see a reason not to view them as a friend. I never really ask anything from any of them besides tips, all I really want is them tolerating my existence. Everyone I've met on DA is great and their art is amazing, and I just watch every pic come in with a grin on my face. Thank you, everyone who's added me back as a friend! And to those who respond to my deviations/comments/whatever, thanks a ton! I love you all!!!!
And second, the reason why I don't update often. Well, basically, that comes into three problems. First, lack of material. I'm a very lazy person and when I get frustrated with pics I generally am a quitter. I know I should just press through, but I can't. Sorry, but hey, at least you guys don't hafta suffer my shitty art!
Second, no scanner. I had one once, but lucky me, I'm the guy who got the scanner with a factory flaw. After about a month, it said to flick a switch that the company normally has installed on it so that it would work, but mine had no such switch, just the message and it wouldn't work. Blargh. And me and my family is frickin poor, so I can't just go buy a new 50 dollar one. Saving money up for it as I type.
And finally, no other resources. I don't have a tablet, so can't do that. Don't have a scanner, as said. No skill WHATSOEVER with a mouse, not at all. And the one thing I can doodle with, pencil, involves a scanner. And the only scanner I was able to use (the school scanner) I've lost my privledges to. Basically last year, I was in a computer programming class, and it had privledges to scan pictures and I abused those for my crappy art. Well, summer came, all the computer stuff was reset, no privledges for that yet.
So until I either get a new scanner or learn to computer draw, no art from me. That sucks too. I've been making a list of people I wanted to doodle piccies for/of because they're so kind and respectful to me, even if I don't deserve their attention.
I'm so sorry!!!!
Oh yeah, and might as well make a brief summary of the summer. School got out around May, went to California and hung out with my bestest buddy in the whole wide world Goth Vee, bugged the hell out of him while I was there (even though he'd deny it) went home and sat around till school started. School started, and now my current classes and my opinions of them are listed below (yes, I know nobody cares, but this is my first post in about 4 months, gotta do something)
Foods/Fashion: Interesting class, and a nice teacher. Couple okay guys and girls in there too (as in nice, ya pervs :3 )
English: Okay, so far. The teacher, who is also my school principle, is an interesting fellow, and terrified to death of mice. I know a couple DA artists I really aughta introduce him to... *devilish grin*
Government and Law: The subject itself is boring as hell, but the teacher makes it all worthwhile. The teacher has very few people call him by his last name, as most kids do, but everyone knows him as Russ. Great guy, fun to talk to, always ready to laugh with everyone but knows when the joke's just gotten too stupid. He's also tolerant of all types of people, and I bet he suspects that I'm odd (I'm a bisexual transgender) but we get along great. Though the class is a bit homocidal and half of them have made death threats on my life.
AutoCAD: In a word, dull. The teacher is the quiet, always smiling type that seems to be thinking "humor the retarded kids, their questions are all due to ignorance" because if you ask him a simple question he gives a long speech only vaguely connected to the question as an answer. Eh.
House Construction: HOT HEAVY MANUAL LABOR. ARRRRRGH!!! Got transferred into that class a couple days ago (my previous class, Broadcasting, had a teacher who seems to take every oppurtunity to send me to the school counsaler. I hand him a DVD he's about to reach for anyway, trying to be helpful, and he sends me to the counselar to find a different class. Construction was my only choice) and my only experience has been with shoveling dirt around a house. In sandals. Growf.
Lunch!: Not a subject, but the best time of the day. Happy happy joy joy happy happy joy joy!
Teacher's Aid: Ah yes, a job I'm suited for. Organizing books in the elementary school library. I love little kids (most of the time) and I love books, the librarian is the same one who was there when I was a kid (over ten years ago...
) and I get to look at books with info of different animals! Squeal!
And finally, Drama and Debate: Ironically my fave class. Half because it's taught by the same teacher as my Government and Law class (see above) and half because I just like to act a bit. I'm more of a story writer than a drawer (just too shy to post most of my writings) so I can invision dialouge and actions enjoyably. And while I'm generally very subserviant, and break under pressure like sticks of cotton candy, I can debate about joining a debate team for an hour when I want to. The only problem is that my class is full of perverts. How many times to I need to see men pantomiming humping an animal? (Welcome to my town, full of homophobic redneck goat molesters. There's even a guy who was spotted mounting a sheep in his feilds and when someone teases him about it, he says *in southern accent* "Don't knock it till ya try it!" .......... I need to get out of here)
That pretty much sums it up. Sorry if everyone fell asleep half way through (or even at the beginning) of this. But thanks for glancing at it if ya did! I'll do another post in a few months!
