Well then~

Wow things have been crazy lately. My surgeries didn't happen. But looking into some specialists that will actually try to help me. I have some pictures to upload from my tattooing. Gonna try getting back into the everyday blog thing. It was good for me and I am disappointed in myself for not keeping up with it. So hoping to start again soon.

The whole point of me doing the sketch blog was to help me get used to drawing everyday for when I become a tattoo artist and or work full time as a mangaka. Anyways lets get to the good stuff then shall we!
   Ok so the first is to prove that its straight and the second is to show whats actually written: 'I am the Emperors dog at Kew, pray tell me sir, whose dog are you?' The writing is fairly small and I had a good time doing it! Curtis sat well for it.

 This tattoo was alot of fun to do! Its for her daughter. Its not going to be colored but I think it looks good in black and white. It was her first and she was one of my best customers to this day. I look forward to any touch-ups or new ones from her.

 This was another for a daughter. Actually both women are friends. There is no black in this tattoo. The lines are a dark navy blue. Definitely good practice for coloring in. Apparently the lines hurt her more the coloring. Most find it opposite but meh. She was fun to tattoo as well.

I have several more tattoos lined up to be done when I finish my work at the county by then I am hoping to start saving for a really nice machine or some more colors of ink or maybe a thermal machine to save me some time with the stencils lol.

Alot has happened recently in my life. Things weren't working out with Richard and I so we are now just best friends. Reminds me of the Wonder Girls song~ Although I do have my visa to move to England I plan on using the money I had saved to further my tattooing career, emergency funding for my new car named Sousuke and most likely move into my own place (with some roomates to help with rent) in Leduc or Edmonton. Its amazing the amount of self confidence I am felling now. Doing things for myself and working hard for no one but me. Such an amazing feeling. Just wished I could have had that operation so I could go back to the gym and make myself feel good on the outside as well. Although the lower stress amount has made me lose some weight I still dont feel comfortable in my own skin. I know I will never be a thin model but I don't want to be. I know I would be happiest as a toned curvy girl so thats my aim. Looking at a size 10-12 ... im a 15-16 atm so Im getting there!

Anyways got some more stuff to get done tonight so goodnight world! Love ya!

Alright some good news! Got a call from the doctors and my new surgery date is September 27! Woo. Still its quite some time for me not to be working as much as I need too. Also Isaac and I made up and I was invited to his birthday party/dinner thing. SOOOO excited. I also may be seeing Jess this weekend. Sucky part is having to work when I shouldn't be. The extra money would be nice to hang out with peeps though.

Its also Richards 31st birthday on the 20th of August. I will have to work but I hope to spend some time with him on his day. Which is gonna be hectic because Isaac's 24th Birthday is the 19th of August.... so late night with him then work in the afternoon then late night with Richard and uhhg. I also have to get the window finished painted at work for the breast cancer pinkest town thingy. SO BUSY. Also have so many tattoos to do and finish (shout out to Brad, Lindi and Jessica). And paintings to finish and art and my blog sketches and manga im working on and my roleplay with Isaac and some tattoo art and *dies. So much to do .... Well before and recovery time after the surgery should give me some time to finish most of it. Anyways need to do some translating and editing and bed for work tomorrow which is earlier then normal for me.

P.S. The Calmar Esso now has Pocky! The chocolate an strawberry ones. So excited. If they sell well they will continue to get them. This is good news for all the Japanese snack fans in Calmar.

Anywho, goodnight world! Love ya <3

Lyrics Translated 1

이보람(Lee Boram)&미노(Mino)- 두바보(Two Fools) 

i love this song. its amazing and the vocals are magical. I will post the video below. Enjoy. This song holds value to me <3

English Translation

Because of loving you
The words are lingering in my mouth again today, loving you
Those words that I say when I turn around alone
Sometimes like an old friend, sometimes like a lover
You are right by me, loving you

The love that everyone else has, is a bit different for me
I have a love that I can’t even express
I only say it in my heart
I only touch it in my thoughts
I circle around his whereabouts and just turn around and go home
Living like this isn’t that bad
There’s no need to be hurt over any breakups
But sometimes it’s so hard because it’s not want it seems
It’s too much to circle around you anymore

Because of loving you
The words are lingering in my mouth again today, loving you
Those words that I say when I turn around alone
Sometimes like an old friend, sometimes like a lover
You are right by me, loving you

You still haven’t figured it out
Not matter how much I try, you don’t know
Even when I loudly laugh and do things for you
You just thanks me with a crinkle of your eyes
Because I’m a wordless fool, I live like this
But I’m like this because I’m afraid I won’t ever see him again
And I’m worried that this will just end as a one-sided love
I’m such a mess these days

Because of loving you
The words are lingering in my mouth again today, loving you
Those words that I say when I turn around alone
Sometimes like an old friend, sometimes like a lover
You are right by me, loving you

This love that always has me sighing and yearning is so frustrating
I don’t think I should let you go like this
Since long ago, I was one step behind you, always behind you like a scarecrow
Even when I’m next to you, even when I’m close
I can’t touch you, loving you

When I see you smile, it hurts because you are not mine
Even though I’m always next to you, it makes me sad because I’m alone
When can I stand next to you?
When can I smile at you?
From the start, I messed this love up
With that spot next to you being empty, I walk behind you so you won’t notice, I locked the door
My love has become a mess

Hangul Lyrics

because of loving u
오늘도 입가에 맴돈 말 loving u
돌아서면 혼자 하는 그말
내 오랜 친구로 때론 연인처럼 내곁에 있는 너 loving u

남들 다하는 사랑이 나만 조금 달라요
표현하지도 못하는 사랑을 하며 살아요
마음으로만 말하고 생각으로만 만지고
주위를 맴돌다가 돌아서버리고 말아요
이렇게 사는 것도 나쁘지는 않겠죠
가슴 아픈 이별 따위에 아파할일도 없겠죠
이게 참 힘드네요 생각같지 않아서
더 이상 그대를 맴돌기가 벅차요

because of loving u
오늘도 입가에 맴돈 말 loving u
돌아서면 혼자 하는 그말
내 오랜 친구로 때론 연인처럼 내곁에 있는 너 loving u

아직도 그대는 눈치 채지 못했죠
아무리 노력을 해도 알아주지도 않아요
큰소리로 웃고 그댈 먼저 챙겨도 고맙다는 눈인사만 건네 버리고 마네요
말 못하는 바보라서 이러고 살아요
두 번 다시는 못 볼까봐 두려워서 이래요
혼자하다 말아버리는 사랑이 될까 겁나요
요즘 정말 내 꼴이 말이 아니네요

because of loving u
오늘도 입가에 맴돈 말 loving u
돌아서면 혼자 하는 그말
내 오랜 친구로 때론 연인처럼 내곁에 있는 너 loving u

늘 한숨만 쉬고 또 그리워하는
이 사랑이 답답해
이대로 널 보내면 안될것 같아…이렇게
니 한걸음 뒤에
오래전부터 난 항상 너의 뒤에
허수아비처럼 서있었어
니 옆에 있어도 가까이 있어도 만질수 없는 너 loving u

웃는 모습을 볼 때마다 내 것이 아니라 아파요
항상 옆에 있어도 혼자란 생각에 슬프죠
언제쯤이면 그대 옆에 함께 설수 있나요
언제쯤이면 그대를 보며 웃어 볼 수 있나요
시작부터 사랑이란 걸 모두 망쳐버렸죠
옆자리를 비워둔 채로 그대 뒤를 걷네요
알아채지도 못하게 문을 잠궈 버렸죠
미치도록 내 사랑은 엉망이 됐네요

Sketch 78 - TATTOOS!!

Sooo been so busy with art and tattoos that I haven't been able to post. But now I have 4 to show (2 unfinished). So here we go!

First up is the tattoo on my sister Kayla. Its 2 hearts on her wrist for her grandma and her. Her grandma has passed on and she wanted a reminder. I has happy to take her tattoo virginity for such a lovely tattoo.
This is a similar rose tattoo to the two yellow ones I did on the mother daughter pair. The lady loved it so much that I changed it up a bit and made it a different color. She surprisingly sat really still for it being on the foot. I was impressed and the tip was nice too. Thank you!

This one isn't finished yet but we got the outline done. Its her daughters name down her spine. We are hoping for maybe thursday to finish it. It will be colorful and pretty. I cant wait to finish this one. Also a tattoo virgin that I've taken!
And I just finished the line work for this one today. Holly hanners this girl jumped all over the place. The lines aren't too bad considering so Im proud of it. Cant wait to see it finished. It will be filled in black and the red stars are actually the UV invisible ink. For some reason the UV ink likes to make everyone bleed more then usual. Oh well. We are both very happy and this was again another virgin tattoo!

So yes I hope you all enjoyed those. Gonna post the other painting I've been working on soon. Hoping it will be finished tomorrow before I go out with Curtis in the evening. So off to get my pills with the extra money I got.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 77 - Hot Steps

Been doing some painting recently and its so nice to do some traditional work again. Although the sad part is I don't get to keep the originals *cry*. So this one is a picture of Isaac's sister Emily. She doesn't dance anymore so I was commissioned to do a picture for her. I absolutely love how it turned out. I am impressed with myself. So now I have to finish Warren's birthday picture and then get some tattoo sketches drawn up for Saturday, possibly doing 3-4 on Saturday and the window painting that I didn't do today to do tomorrow at the Esso. SOOO BUSY. But its nice because its not stuff thats hurting my side too much.

Also I did Kayla's tattoo today instead. We were messing about and LA Ink came on TV and I was all like ... "lets do yours. RIGHT NOW :D" and shes all like "OMG ok!" and yeah. She squealed she was so happy haha. So after this crazy weekend I still have to work the holiday Monday. At least they were nice enough to pay us a day early so I can put my check in the bank and finally pay my bills. Been stretching my money out as long as I can because I cant work as much from my pain. Anyways should probably get more painting done.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 76 - Bear

Calico Cat, Bear. I have a customer that wants her deceased Calico named Bear tattoo'd. I haven't done a realism animal yet. Kinda nervous seeing as animals aren't my strong point and it will be in color. But it will be fairly small. I just hope it will turn out for the customer!

Interesting last few days. The pains in my side are getting more and more unbearable. I hope the new day for my surgery will come soon! Tired of all these tests. In a big art mood right now So I am taking the opportunity to fully use it! I will be using my spare needles tomorrow to tattoo my sister Kayla on her wrist. Super excited for that. I also have several interested in Commissions not to mention the ones I have to still finish! Now I also have to paint the windows at work with a design I made all in Pink! Its for the 'Pinkest City in Alberta' contest for breast cancer. So yeah wow hectic! Even though I wont be doing much physically I am super swamped for time. Its nice to be busy again though and the extra little trickles of income really help when I can't work full time...barely even part-time. Anyways! Enough chit-chat, off to continue drawing!

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 75 - My Magic

Felt like drawing my character Purtalic. Really miss my friend MBJ. I have been trying to get a hold of her for a while now. I guess she must be busy. Today was a sort of relaxing day. Company came over and things got a tad lively. Not much to say. In a drawing mood and a gaming mood but with company over its extremely hard to do either.... Not looking forward to my imminent death tomorrow. I have to work 8 hours tomorrow and Sunday. Yesterday I worked 3 hours and was in extreme pain, because they cant just let me work the counter. Its stocking and magazines and bending and just everything to make my side turn into an inferno. So wanted to draw something soothing.

Not sure what I will do for the rest of the night. Have a major headache from the dogs not listening and not in the mood to socialize. Also getting depressed lately. Feel horrible about myself, for things that are happening. Too much thinking and worrying and I am bringing myself down. I have friends in trouble and I don't know how to help them.

Well enough for my depressing rantings. Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 74 - Party Voices

So yeah last night I was MIA because my friend Curtis and I when out to the pub/club last night. It was fun! Although I would like to take him on a weekend when its a bit more busy. They did however have Karoke night, and I must say Curtis has some amazing vocals. It was like they were playing the real song. They also had Richard and my song. At some point I got hungry so we asked where a good place to eat was, and the bouncer told us about a donair place 8 blocks away so we went. He sang in accapella to me the whole way there .... and back once we found out the shop was closed. It was a good time and I plan to to it again some time!

Anyways Im very sore from the 3 hours of work I did do today so I am off. Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 73 - I Don't Blame You

Portal (the game) and oxycodine (Perkaset) .... equals me really high. That game is so awesome. So went to the doctors today and yeah. Seems I will be on more painkillers for the next couple of months. My surgery has been postponed because of the infection. This really sucks. But I had some awesome friends to cheer me up today.

Gonna keep this short because I decided If I have to live through this pain more and more and I cant work full time might as well get some more hours at my part time work. Short shifts and decent enough pay. I need the spending money for stuffs, fragapalooza and bills so yeah. Hoping It wont be too busy while I'm working so I don't need to waste a pill for a few hours of work and then be sick or high and get fired. But yeah, time for bed.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 72 - Lost In Your Eyes

Feels good to draw on my tablet again. Been having fun with Kayla and her fiance Cory. The princess party for my niece's 4th birthday party was actually a lot of fun. I did a lot of  face painting and the kids were so cute in their big poofy dresses and bows.

Friday night/Saturday morning I had to go to the hospital again from over exertion at the 2012 Magic the Gathering draft tournament. I got alittle more excited then I should have over some cards I got and had to go because I was in so much pain. Turns out I have a severe bladder infection which can and probably will prevent my surgery on the 20th from happening. Ive been waiting a long time for this surgery and I really don't want to be in pain anymore. It hurts to get up in the morning.

Tomorrow I go to the doctor and get tested again for the infection. Hoping all is good. If not I really hate these pills I am on. The antibiotics I got are apparently so strong that I cannot go outside in the sun for a lengthy period of time while on them. It increases the chance of getting a sunburn. I get so dizzy and nauseous from them as well. So i should get to bed because I will need a shower in the morning. It is very humid here and we are not used to it! Sweating like crazy.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Friday, July 15, 2011


I'm alive! and I fixed my tablet with some glue, duct tape and love. It works again! I will start up my sketches again on Monday because I wont be home this weekend though I really don't want to go because it will be very depressing for me.

Today is an exciting day however. Its the 2012 Magic the Gathering draft tournament at Bazinga Comics and my sister Kayla is coming back home from Newfoundland with her fiance Cory and their dog Lady. Im SOOOOOOO excited!!! All of this and I can still barely move from the pain which is spreading to the left side, lower back and right thigh now. I have 3 painkillers left and not sure how I'm gonna survive this weekend and week until my surgery. At lest my work is being understanding and considerate.

I have also made some new friends at Bazinga. I wanna give a shout out to Warren (the owner) for being so awesome and cool, Isaac, Ryan, Jameson, Byran, Zack, Matt, and many more that I have yet to remember names to faces (sorry guys!). Its also gotten me closer with old friends I lost contact with; Bradley, Cynthia and Marie. Isaac and I are becoming really close friends, so if you guys hear me mention him a lot you know why haha. Well off to do some more cleaning before the tournament if I can.

It so nice to be back! Bubyes for now world! Love ya <3

R.I.P. Tablet

Raining today so no work. Decided to get some drawing done until I took out my tablet. It is broken and wont turn on. I cried. Then looked at how much the upgrade is. I cried again. Sooooo expensive. So back to paper and pencil until I can get/afford a new one.

One of my guild mates suggested I ask for donations towards a new one or if any fans have a new/used one they would like to donate. The one I am looking at is the Intuos 4 but anything right now would be great.

I don't like to be a charity case.

Anyways I hope the rain lets up soon. Love you all!

Sketch 71 - More Tattoos!

 Had alot of fun doing these. Inside the stars on her hand and the little stars on her wrist (to break apart the names) I used my new invisible UV tattoo ink. At first we didn't think it worked until I brought out my blacklight bulb and holly man it was so cool! I think I might try to give myself a face tattoo with this ink. All in all she says she really loves them and I am proud of them. First time doing writing that small and on a wrist. BTW the names are all of her pets.

Tomorrows sketch will be probably of the lady above. While at her house I saw the most amazing thing. So I will draw that! In other news. My mom has been watching me play around with all these cards (Magic the gathering) and started asking me questions. When I asked if she would like to get her own decks and play she was excited and bought a lot of cards! Lucky her managed to get so many rare cards in random booster packs including the original Tezzereth Plainswalker! So I ended up making her a deck from her cards and play/instructed her on the basics of the game in play . . . she BEAT the shit outta me lol. VERY proud of her and tonight she asked to play me again and seemed upset that we haven't played for a few nights!

Some bad news. I tried to run my computer after work today and it just lagged horribly. I check it out and find I only have 2GB of hard drive space left lol. So yeah, ran out and got a 500gb portable HD. Sadly, my computer atm is only 250GB and this back-up is 500GB lol . . . oh well.

Well I am off to bed because I have work tomorrow and mom wants to play a game before I have to go to work. Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Sketch 70 - Magic and Books

Looking forward to playing Magic today. Got the day off so going to use that. I also need to pick up my new UV invisible ink I ordered. Looking forward to it. Now to get a black light so I can see what I'm tattooing lol. Also plan on giving a tattoo at some point today. Uhhg busy day again.

Also wanted to mention I got an e-book reader. The Chapters Kobo. I love it. It came pre-loaded with 100 classics that I intend to read at some point. I have about 130 books/manga on it atm so YAY.

Hmm not much else. Not sure when I will be home and how tired I will be tonight so I am posting now and if anything interesting happens I will talk about it in tomorrows blog.

Bubyes world! Love ya <3

OMG I am still alive!!!

Sorry everyone for my absence! I have been so stressed lately due to everything catching up with me. Stuff is happening at work, ended up killing my laptop keyboard . . . you have no idea how hard it is to type right now. My space bar, C, V and ALT keys are pretty much stuck because I spilled a form of chinese sweet and sour sauce on them and yeah . . . very upset about that.

Updates will start again tomorrow! I got alot of work done on the wallpaper I promised everyone and some commissions yesturday so things should start to move along. On another note, I got back into playing Magic the Gathering thanks to Brad. I had to re-make my decks and he came over to help me play test them . . . and kicked my ass in both games using my decks! LOL oh well. Second game he just got lucky with his first had. Had a low cost poison creature at the start and ended me before I could get more then my wall (0/6 defensive) and an artifact creature cat out near the end. So yeah need more practice. That and I amused to playing 3+ so thats how I build my decks. Need to re-work for one-on-one.

Anyways! New sketch tomorrow hope you look forward to it! Love ya <3

Sketch 70 - Tattoos Complete!

Cleaning all day yesterday and this morning to prepare for doing these two tattoos! Mother and daughter yellow rose tattoos. I'm quite impressed with myself. This was Shelby's (in pink) first tattoo and did well for it being on the top of her foot! Although the jumping made me mess up a bit, it turned out great considering. Will need some touch ups later down the road to fix the line and the color if needed.

Thought I would post these as my sketch for today because I basically spent the whole day doing the tattoos. Hope you enjoy! I know Cheryl (black) and Shelby (pink) loved them. Anyways I need to be up early tomorrow to take my mom to work so I can take the car for tomorrow because my ride will be going the the doctors. So . . .

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Double Sketch Tomorrow

Such a long day that I will have to do a double sketch tomorrow. And one will be a hand drawn one done while I'm at work.

Some people really are just stupid. If you cant back up with a trailer then why are you driving with one and if you can't read signs placed ON the road, then you shouldn't be driving or be heading to the eye doctors.

Today wasn't busy for me, but stupid people in big trucks thinking they can cut in front of big machinery were still out there. Think people!

Anyways off to bed. Goodnight world. Love ya <3 expect a better post tomorrow!

Sketch 68 - Kang DaeSung

Daesung . . . what have you gotten yourself into? I have been following the story of his recent car accident to which someone has died. There are so many rumors going around and news stories twisting things before official ruling has been made. As it stands from what I understand is that Daesung was driving at 1:30 am when coming over a hill he ran over a previously fallen motorcyclist and crashed into the back of a taxi that had stopped to help the victim. The taxi driver has released a Q and A to which he explains that Daesung may be wrongfully charged and is being blamed for everything.

Here is a site I have been using too keep up on the news:

As for work today. What is with the wind this year? Seriously. Like tornado strong winds enough to blow me off my feet which almost happened several times today. Surprised Margaret wasn't carried off with how small she is. I ended up with further sunburns on my hands, a spider bite on my ankle, scratched eyes from the dirt, bloody nose from blowing out mud and powdered cement in my hair which is VERY hard to get out. Also blisters on my hands from trying to keep my stop sign pointing towards on-coming traffic and flying either out of my hands or into my face more then it had already. Hopefully it will rain and help with the dust and calm the wind down a bit.

Anyways! Goodnight world. Love ya <3

Sketch 67 - Hope Adams

Not bad for Lucifer's daughter eh? Hope Adams is a character created by the amazing author Kelley Armstrong. Currently reading Living With The Dead. Sooooo good. I will admit when this character first appeared in the series it took me a while to process what she looked like. I wasn't used to reading stories where the main character was Indian (India). Armstrong first describes her as a Bollywood princess. But after finishing Personal Demon and now reading this one, I've come to really like Hope. This is what I picture her to be. She's suppose to be exotic sexy but can totally rock the t-shirt and jeans with black curls that hang to her middle back. So yeah!

Anyways Most of you can tell I got alot of reading done at work. Its so windy out where we are working Its hard to do anything without getting covered in dirt or having stuff blown away. My hands are also very burnt and sore so I'm off to go soak them before bed.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 66 - Butterfly

Back to work with the county. I do really enjoy that job. Especially now that most of the irate drivers have been told off from last week and everyone today was quite nice and understanding about the work we were doing. At least on my side it was. I remember how bad it was at the intersection last week. Holy man. Anyways during the times there was no one around because we were working on a road out in the middle of no-where, I found an amazing looking butterfly that was having troubles flying in the wind on the open roads. I managed to hold it and bring it to the long grass where it got its bearings and flew off. Below is a picture of it, mind you mine had a bright red dot on the middle of the bottom part of the tails. It is a Giant Swallowtail Butterfly or an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
Anyways it was a good day and I'm happy to be back to work at this job. Anyways I need a shower from the wind giving me a dirt tan. Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 65 - Long Day

Blast from the past. This is a character design that no one has seen on the internet before so here you go. Work was everything today from bored out of my mind, to pleasant, bad weather, angry drivers, really pissed off drivers to the point of driving past me and racing through a construction zone.

Very tired. So I will post this treat for you . I think I drew it back in 2007? Was gonna be for Pyowaan but not sure any more. See you all tomorrow!

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 64 - hello

My new/old hairstyle. Went back to this style. Wanted something quick tonight but ended spending more time on this then I had planned for. For Those wondering its Purtalic written in katakana (Japanese), then Tamakai in kanji (Japanese), my English name and then my English name in Korean.

Work today was short due to the rain. Spent a good portion of the morning playing fetch with a black Labrador that decided it was gonna be my friend. It also showed me how STUPID people can really be. We have construction ahead signs and detour signs everywhere and they drive up to me "whats going on?" "ummm . . . road construction . . . . need you to turn around and take the detour" like seriously . . . . I get a whole summer of that and "Why are you doing this road? I NEED to get to this place. Its an emergency (like registration at rabbit hill...)" oh well! Pay is great! 22 hours and its the same paycheck I got working 2 weeks at the bingo hall <3

Anyways bed time! Goodnight world. Love ya <3

Sketch 63 - tyrannosauruslexxx

British youtuber tyrannosauruslexxx . . . gorgeous lady with a wonderful voice when she does sing. It's a shame she doesn't vlog much anymore because of university. She is such a wonderful person and I really like watching her videos no matter the topic. Most of the time she just talks about random stuff but its still so interesting. I look forward to more videos! . . . please? lol

Not much to say about today except cut my hair (different fringe style) and dyed it a darker auburn. See how this color and style work for me. Should I update my profile pic with a new one? Might have to actually put make-up on for once . . .

Kinda nervous about tomorrow, we start construction tomorrow and it will be my first day flagging. Margaret said she would be there to help me for a bit which helps settle my nerves a tad. Also got some chicken for lunch tomorrow which I am gonna make into a sandwich! NOM NOM.

Anyways need sleep! So tired lol. Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 62 - FLuffeeTalks

Canadian comedian FLuffeeTalks is a vlogger who turns his vlogging into a show like Ray. Although unlike Ray, FLuffee talks about obscure news and viral videos. I would definitely say this is NOT for kids. Some of the news topics are a bit disturbing for younger viewers so yeah . . . Other then that he is frikken hilarious and I love his videos. On top of that he's not bad on the eyes ^_' If your reading this Fluffee I'm a huge fan from Edmonton!

Alright today I update the music of the week tab. Usually its only one song to maybe two but today will be 4! I just can't decide! Two will be k-pop, one English k-pop and one T-pop.

The two kpop ones are for SiStar씨스타19 - MaBoy and the new group Swincle (스윙클) - Shake Ur Body. SiStar's song and video . . . wholy cow those girls can move. Their dance is so hypnotic and sexy in a very innocent way. The new group Swincle . . . at first I was all like "uhhg new girl group" then the music actually started and I was pulled in. The song is so catchy and I am a new fan! Great vocals and the girls are gorgeous and not too thin. Definitely give them a go!

The English kpop song is from missA. Now Its hit and miss with me and this group. I loved their hit songs Good Girl Bad Girl and Breathe but the rest suck . . . until this song. They released a full English song and it's really good! For only 2 of them being semi-fluent in English their pronunciation is amazing. The song is really catchy and the lyrics actually make sense.

The Tpop song. For those that don't know what Tpop stands for, it is Taiwanese pop music. Sorta started getting into a few artists awhile back, but recently I fell for Min. Now I am not sure exactly how old this boy is (maybe 10-14?) but he is so ADORABLE. P.O.I. is featured as well and his debut song Connect is so good. I love it and can't wait for more from him. Also been getting into a group called KOTIC that are pretty good as well.

Anyways goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 61 - nerimon

So nerimon a.k.a. Alex Day is Charlies flat mate. He is a funny sod and quite worth the watch and sub! Honestly I prefer Alex's singing compared to Charlie's better, but I do prefer Charlie's videos. Both are musicians and very funny. Although he might think he is going to be selling out by reading more of the twilight series, I think its not a sell out. A lot of his fans aren't twilight fans and loved watching him read and tear it apart. It was an interesting take on the book from a male-nonfan. I would be delighted if he started to read new moon. And so would a lot of his viewers. Oh well, either way I will continue to support him!

So not much to say for today. Did dishes and laundry and that's about it . . . lol. Dishes took about 5 hours to complete which is why I am now on the hunt for a cheap or free dishwasher so I can stop being one lol. My hands are so sore from all the soap, hot water and scrubbing. Anyways I'm off to enjoy the rest of my night relaxing. Tomorrow will be another Canadian vlogger who reviews obscure current events.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 60 - charlieissocoollike

YouTube sensation charlieissocoollike is an English vlogger whom I stumbled upon by accident. It took me about a month to catch up with all of his videos (about 1-2 hours a day). The only complaint I have for his recent work is there isn't a lot of it! I understand that being an internet celeb keeps him busy along with his music endeavors but I think I can speak for all of his fans when I say PLEASE make at lest 2 video's a month? preferably more lol. WE LUV YOU!!!

So turns out I had the weekend off as well. A lot has been going on with the other job. I don't need to work there anymore and it could possibly endanger myself and or my crew and motorists by working this second job. something will get worked out though. Not much to say today. Although I think I finally found a new Chinese teacher.  Lanying Liu seems to understand my situation and work schedule. Hopefully things will work out with her.

Tomorrow should be a busy day for me. Most people who know about charlie, know about his partner in crime . . . which will be tomorrow's sketch. Time to do some work so ttyl.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

See you all tomorrow with a British youtuber

Sketch 59 - Hey Nadine

Oh yeah! Representing! Canadian vlogger Hey Nadine. She does alot of music videos on that channel now and kinda moved her vlogging to her side channel. I started watching Nadine after I found her Warcraft videos. She travels a lot and seems like a genuinely nice and awesome person. One day I would like to meet her and all the other vloggers but I doubt I will lol. So many things I want to do before I die.

Not much to say about today. Another full day of garbage pick-up. Although Monica entertained us as usual with her crazy awesome self. On the way home however, Margret and I saw an accident happen. Was kinda scary! A red truck with a family (mom,dad,2 kids) was making a left turn like they were allowed to and some idiot in a grey truck sped through the red light. It happened so fast but it looked like the grey truck driver was distracted, maybe with a cell phone? Anyways it smashed right into the side of the red truck sending bits flying and the truck spinning off towards the major highway. Everyone seemed alright though which was good. Hope that grey truck driver got a severe punishment!

Anyways need to be up early for tomorrow so Goodnight World! Love ya <3

Sketch 58 - Wheezy Waiter

Team beard! Actually . . . drawing facial hair is a pain in the ass, no offense Craig! If he see's this, I hope you like it!  So yeah, I found Wheezy Waiter from watching MEEKAKITTY. Craig is really awesome to watch. He puts so much effort into his videos and you can tell he has a lot of fun. He seems to have a lot of confidence which I admire. Eventually I will start my vlog. This whole blog thing is helping me though. I can be personal and not have to be self conscious of myself. Like how some people can't say what they want to but have no problem writing in on paper. Actually today's episode of Explosion Wednesday (not sure if its a thing yet) scared the bejeebus outta me. Keep on rockin wheezy! We all love you.

Alright! Today . . . wow what a day . . . Barely did ANYTHING but so much happened its unreal lol. So tired too. I got to detail a huge road grader today. OMG that cabin got so hot my shirt was sticking to me after I was done and I was in the shade! I do not know how they can work in that thing for hours. After Monica and I were finished cleaning it, the driver was all like "this isn't mine . . . its too clean" lol. Made me feel good at least. Then had some flagging lessons and yeah whole monkey fingering a coconut the mosquitos. I swear I am gonna bathe in bug spray.

Lunch was fun. Was a county luncheon where the social club hosted a BBQ. I had the chance to catch up with an old friend Patricia. I haven't seen her for at least 6-7 years so it was nice to talk for abit. After lunch we did more garbage pickup on 5th street and thats when things started to get really good. Here I am working and I find a cut/torn piece of glove. It was only the first two fingers and the thumb cut in a diagonal. So I thought nothing of it and picked it up with the pincher and noticed it was kinda heavy. Now if it was windy like it has been I would have loved the weight, but there wasn't any wind today and was so hot I didn't want to be carrying any extra that I didn't need too. So looking in the finger holes for a rock, instead I find white . . . of a severed thumb! Man it was so gross. It was fairly old and you could tell it had been through the winter so I just tossed it in my garbage bag.

I wanted to mention something funny that happened at the dump with Monica but I think I will keep that an inside joke between Margaret, Monica and I. When I came home I checked my email and I recieved my first blog related mail from a random person. Although it a failed attempt at trolling was still hate mail. Saying that I'm being a whore drawing youtubers to gain page views. Then at the end added that the drawing were awesome though . . . so yeah lol whatever. Honestly I got more page views when I was drawing my own characters. Oh well. I have my flagging test tomorrow so I will stop today's here.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 57 - MEEKAKITTY

So youtube vlogger #2 is MEEKAKITTY. I found her through Ray. Her video's always make me smile. She is gorgeous, geeky in the best possible way and has this unique air about her that just makes you fall for her charm. Plus she is a natural red head!

Back to work today. Monnica and I have this pine-cone war going on. Its something to pass the time. Nothing really interesting happened except me being so very tired. Which is the reason this blog will be short. Tomorrow is a company BBQ so I will have something more to write about tomorrow.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

P.S. to all of those who are beard lovers . . . prepare yourselves for tomorrow! I have set my anti-eagle barrier set up just in case.

Sketch 56 - Ray William Johnson

So anyone know of Ray William Johnson ? I had a request to do my favorite youtube vloggers so I decided to start with the very first one I ever started to follow! His comedy vlog =3 is frikken hilarious and fell in love just after a few episodes. It can be a tad controversial at times, so if you are easily offended this may not be for you. If he ends up seeing this I hope he likes it. I'm proud to be one of your many fans!

So new video for today. Actually I am going to post two videos because I can't deside. Aziatix released their new single, Cold, and I am addicted already. Aziatix is a group of Korean music artists who came to the USA to study and formed a group. So far they are awesome and climbing the charts fairly quick! They sing in English so for those who don't like k-pop here is a treat for you.

The second video is Jay Park's new single Tonight. I love this song. Been playing it over and over. My cousin Alex might kill me for this but I think Jay looks a LOT like him. Or the other way around. Either way they look similar. Alex is like the buffer, less skrawny version. However, I'm sure Alex isn't a B-Boy like Jay. Much love!

Today has been interesting. Managed to spend a good $400.00 today. More good and bad news from the doctors. Gave a friend some tattoo pointers. Got a few new awesome Magic the gathering cards from a visit from Brad and the new comic shop in Leduc (where the DQ used to be behind the PetroCan). Went to see my trainer and caught up abit. Then got 2 new books at Chapters for almost free from my rewards card. Just had to pay the tax lol. Speaking of taxes.... I have plans to get mine out soon! Hopefully I get a nice return like my sister.

Anyways . . . goodnight world! Back to work tomorrow. Love ya <3

Getting Better!

So decided to test my pain tolerance today by doing some light housework and its going well so far. I finished off the day with more lessons and playing around with minecraft. I was getting frustrated because my builds just aren't working the way I want them to. So yeah.

Might try playing abit of Magicka before bed. Tomorrow will be a very art day. Hoping to get alot of my art work caught up. Tonight will be short so I will see you all tomorrow!

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

R and R

Not much to say. Been doing a lot of resting yesterday and today. Trying to get better so I can go back to work. So far I have lasted the whole day without any painkillers and as long as I take things slow it isnt more then a discomfort then a pain.

I'm sorry for not posting yesterday, but blogger was having maintenance which was scheduled for only an hour and ended up being the whole day . . .
So yeah . . . Not sure if I mentioned before that I have problems speaking Korean or not, but I do. Recently, (thanks to I found a website that is helping me which my pronunciation of Korean. He is a really good teacher! There a few rules that I didn't know about from teaching myself that are really helping me understand why Koreans laugh at me when I try to speak their language. Also had another Chinese lesson today. Was short. But the company I am trying to learn it with is introducing me to a new teacher seeing as my original one had to leave because his sister had passed. The one I met today was harsh and had no sense of humor. Class wasn't fun and I don't remember hardly any of it because I became uninterested. Oh well.

Anyways gonna try doing some light housework and see how much I can do without causing pain. Well goodnight world! Love ya <3

From the Inside

Alright! Today was scary, painful and . . . interesting to say the least. Woke up this morning with stronger then normal pain in my side for hardly doing anything. I didn't really think anything of it until the ride to work when it continued to flare up and cause me brief moments of agony. So like I normally do, I took an Advil. The Advil seemed to have worked ... while I was stationary. We went out after some pointless discussions and started to do our work. The pain started to come back again but it was dull and manageable. However, after a good hour or two I was in so much pain that I was in tears and out of breath.

Margaret and Monica told our boss and he was kind enough to drive me home and give me necessary time off (he told me not to think about coming back until Monday lol) So I spent the next couple of hours at home resting until my mum arrived. I then drove her to work and then myself to the Leduc ER. Now I have only been to the Leduc hospital for shots and bloodwork. I have always gone to Devon for emergencies because its closer. Today I will not go to Devon for the ER of my own choice ever again. My last encounters with that hospital were horrible. They never gave me the time of day and even after telling them my symptoms that did a quick look and told me what I was feeling was wrong. Leduc on the other hand treated me with respect and did extra tests baised on what I had explained my symptoms to be. And I can honestly say I had fun for a bit at the hospital. I had to go for an ultrasound and they brought me a wheel chair and she wheeled me in a fun fast way through the halls to the ultrasound room. Me pushing my IV trolly thing along with us.

Oh man and they gave a full bag of Morphine, then some liquid gravol because I was very nauseous from the large dose of morphine. lol I slept for a while in that room. All those drugs making me drowsy. Well anyways after all is said and done I have 3 bruises and some pain, but I got a prescription and a decent time. I also want to thank Doreen and Luke for picking me up because the hospital wasn't gonna let me leave and drive home with all that morphine in my system! Well sleep is cathing up with me so I will go to bed.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

One Week Sketch Hiatus

I am really sorry to do this. My new job is draining me of all my energy. My crew says it will take about a week to get used to the work. So I will post written updates for a week and continue with the sketches next Monday. Again I am really sorry! Please be patient with me. Once I get going with this job I will be able to afford to make this blog a bit more interesting!

Sooooo. I have been having a wonderful first couple of days. Monica and Margaret are so awesome to work with and I'm slowly getting to know the rest of the crew. Everyone is so down-to-earth and friendly like they ahve known each other since high school but only just met. It's a wonderful work environment where people can be themselves without having to try so hard to fit in.

In my construction crew Margaret and I are Flaggers. We are the people who stand with the stop/slow signs and guide people through the construction zones. Monica is a Packer, she runs the machinery that packs the soil to later be paved for the new roads and or fixing of the roads. However, the contruction season doesn't start till after the long weekend so we are cleaning up Nisku with garbage pick-up duty. Let me tell you, it's not an amazingly easy or fun job but working with Monica and Margaret makes the time go by fast and fairly fun.

Haha today we did alot of ditches with waters drains and tons of mud. Several times both of us nearly fell face first into the mud after slipping it in. Poor Monica drenched her foot thinking a patch of rocky soil looked solid and sank down to the middle of her calf! We both had a good laugh.

Anyways time for some relaxing while I eat and then making my food for tomorrow! Goodnight world, love ya <3

Sketch 55 - An Angel Among Us

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! So yeah I'm sorry this is an older sketch but its one that most haven't seen. Its the original concept sketch for Nanako in my Pyowaan story. She is a fire angel and unlike her friend Anna who actually starts with the angels, she starts in the desserts and lives among the villages of anthro races until she is reunited with her friends.

So my new job starts tomorrow. I have to get up before 6am uhhg. Oh well the pay is well worth it and getting up that early will hopefully make the day go by faster. I want to give a shout out to a new friend of mine Jake Bailey who has lent me his Japanese copy of Legend of Dragoon game (which ive mentioned in a previous post that I have been wanting to play again!). So cool! Now I don't have to by it and I can refine my Japanese reading abilities while playing. He has also lent me a Japanese PSP game called Monster Hunter Portable, which as he warned me is very addictive! By looking at the back and seeing the graphics for a hand held it looks frikken amazing!

Anyways it is getting late and I need to make my lunch for tomorrow and get to bed. Good night world! Love you <3

Sketch 54 - New Job Soon

Can anyone tell I'm excited for my new job? I did this on my self made 10 minute break at my current job. Uhhg did an 11 hour shift today and I am exhausted. I HATE that shift. So tired and exhausted I didnt even get a sketch done for yesterday. Mother's day is tomorrow (technically today seeing as I'm posting after 12). I got my mom a card, her favorite perfume and a genuine pearl necklace (and no thinking dirty!). All mothers deserve pearls at some point.

So yeah another 10 hour shift tomorrow that I am dreading and then I start my new job on Monday! YAY! But my first day will be 10 hours as well but almost double the pay so I don't care. Anyways I have little time to sleep so goodnight world! Love ya <3

Friday, May 06, 2011

Sketch 53 - YAY!

OMG! YAY! lol so I found out today that my symptoms are NOT cancer. However the alternative isn't much better. Oh well. So I have decided on the higher paying job. Although I will still be helping put at night until they can replace me at the job I am at so for a week or so expect some late sketches. Sorry!

What caused this pain I have been having was the birth control pill I was on (Yasmin) I think produced too many hormones causing problems for me. So now the treatment is . . . more birth control! lol however a smaller dose.  

I also wanna give a shout out to my ex husband who is now a father to a healthy baby boy named Evander. Congratulations you two! I hope to see pictures soon.

Anyways up early for interview/paperwork tomorrow so Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Sketch 52 - Eat Your Kimchi!

YAY!!! Finally done. Martina, Simon and Spudgy. Although I still don't like how Spudgy turned out. I'm not very good at drawing animals. Quite proud of this one. Worked on it most of the day while watching their videos. I hope they like it! Finally into 2011 videos I think... Martina likes pink and bacon so I made her a shirt with both. Her shirt says 'Bacon Love' with a heart made of bacon and Simon's shirt is a Shazaam! shirt. I know he has a tattoo but its like 1am and I need to get to bed. Not that I will actually be able to sleep.

I still stand by my vote to abolish guilt trips. I loath them. My family has mastered the art to the point they don't even realize they are doing it anymore. I have a huge decision to make regarding my job, that really should be no decision at all. If I was currently employed anywhere else that I'm not at the moment then everyone would be pushing me forward. Tomorrow I find out (hopefully) exactly whats wrong with me medically and I can go from there. Hopefully the hiring person will give me a bit more time to make said decision. I am in so much pain both in body and mind right now. My side today felt like it was gonna rip open and now my emotions and head feel like exploding into a meltdown of epic proportions. I want to just give up, but I wont and can't.

Time to go attempt to sleep and or just rest. LOL I think my tear ducts actually ran out if that's possible. Nice thing about crying is it reduces stress and is great for your skin. My cheeks are so soft. Anyways . . . Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 51 - Simon, Martina and Spudgy

Simon, Martina and Spudgy from Eat Your Kimchi. I have been loving their videos. Such an amazing couple. They are Canadians who moved to Korea to teach and vloged about it every day. To me they are such an inspiration. I actually have my TESOL certificates and tried to teach in Japan. However I got turned down for all the paid teaching jobs in Japan because I had no experience and or early childhood development certification. Outside of their jobs I just love watching their videos. Martina and Simon have such wonderful personalities and make an amazing couple. Spudgy the dog is adorable in an odd way haha! Also very jealous because they got to meet almost all of my favorite kpop stars including BigBang. Man if it was me I would glomp Daesung!

So today is just the line work. Its a huge piece but I have some of the color done already so to finish for tomorrow's blog will be fast (hoping). I'm actually really proud of this. For a sketchier full sized picture it turned out great...except for Spudgy because I suck at drawing animals (forgive me!)

In other news, I'm getting nervous for Thursday. I've been getting more frequent pains in my side and its getting harder to do things without writhing in pain on the floor. It's starting to scare me and honestly I'm scared to find out exactly what it is and what the outcome and treatments will include. I have a lot planned for my future ...

Anyways! Conservatives won the election in Canada so .... nothing will change! Not so bad I suppose but whatever. Getting sleepy so Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 50 - Bring On the Headcrabs!

Gordon Freeman. The coolest video game character / geek 3\/4R (ever)!!! I got a request to draw him a couple days ago but couldn't remember who he meant. I personally have never played this game but have watched others play through both one and two. They are amazingly scary and fun! Good times. Hahaha I remember the day my bf at the time Jacob was playing and I was watching and he was strolling around this city exploring and found a crawl space that had a medic pack in it. So he started to crawl through it with the flashlight (in the game) off until we started hearing noises. He turns on the flashlight and right there is a head crab! LOL we both screamed and jumped and frantically started to kill it. Man we laughed so hard after that.

Not going to go into details just yet, but I received a call back about my test results and they did not have good news for me. Very sad but nothing is concrete at the moment and I will not post more then this until I find out for sure. So lets all pray they are wrong! Because we all know doctors can be wrong.

Speaking of games. Richard and I get a long weekend together and my steam is finally working again and his computer.... down for the count. There is a higher power out there that does not want us playing Borderlands I swear! Anyways I'm sorry to my guild mates for this afternoon, love you guys!

Anyways I'm off for the night, goodnight! Love ya world <3

Sketch 49 - You Wish...

... you were this pretty! I love Siberian tigers. They are amazing creatures. I was hoping to hear back from a couple I have recently fell in love with  so I could draw their picture for today but maybe it will be for tomorrow. Mind you I really shouldn't get my hopes up because they are so popular that they met almost all my favorite kpop idols (~jealous~).

Today I basically did some translations and relaxed while watching the you tube videos of the couple listed above. Also got some laundry done. Actually while typing this Richard was looking at the TRON and Daft Punk headphones that just came out by Monster. Man they look so cool! I wouldn't mind a pair (and same for him) when we can get our finances in order/ goals achieved lol.

So big news in Canada. Tomorrow (which actually in the time of posting this is today) is our Federal elections. This should be big news but really isn't to most. I'm not sure who I'm gonna vote for. Definitely not the liberals but I'm torn between the Conservatives and the NDP.  The NDP or New Democratic Party offers change but said change usually consists of raising taxes to help pay for it while the conservatives are basically just gonna work to improve what we already have. Now the way an election is won in Canada is strange. You don't necessarily win by the amount of votes. In federal elections, Canadians vote for members of parliament. The leader of the party with the most members elected (there are 308 seats) then becomes the prime minister. The current Conservative minority government has 143 seats and is headed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Since we do not directly elect the prime minister, Canadians must consider the impact of our votes on multiple levels. It doesn’t take a majority to rule or to win an election in Canada. If you’ve got six candidates running, you don’t need 50 percent of the vote to win. Simply the one who has the highest percentage wins. In doing so our elections tend to take less time and are more fluid then presidential elections in the states.

Anyways that's enough of that boring talk and I am off to bed! Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 48 - Amy

Meet Amy. A random bunny girl. Don't really have a thing for her or not sure I can use her as a character but we will see. I went through some serious artist block drawing this one.

So today I got paid YAY! Then went and paid the people I needed to pay haha. Also gave Andy his Easter chocolates and got a practice session with a standard vehicle. Which I must say I did fairly well until I 'kangaroo'd' at a busy intersection in town and stalled out. Nerves got to me I guess. Oh well more practice to come I'm sure. Need to get this down pat if I am to survive on English roads. Mind you over there I could chalk it up to driving on the wrong side of the road that I am used to.

So Richard put his new 1 TB hard drive in today. He needs the space for all of his games and stuff on steam. I'm happy for him! When I finally cross the pond I would like to maybe look into getting a decent desktop. I love my Alienware but its getting dated and you can't upgrade them easily like a desktop. Anyways....

I have been getting into some Tpop recently to go along with my mass collection of Jpop and Kpop. Speaking of which my Big Bang CD finally arrived! OMG its so amazing and the case was so cool. But back on track, I really need to learn Taiwanese... I sorta started on my own awhile back but I didn't get too far. I only know like 3 people from Taiwan and we don't keep in touch a lot so it was hard to ask questions and get a good response. Maybe I should pick it up again seeing as I'm not getting far with Chinese at the moment.

Goodnight world! Love ya <3

Sketch 47 - Hang over

I don't drink very often but when my cousin came down and offered a night of drinking I couldn't resist! We were having so much fun with the hard liquor then he wanted a beer. Now my cousin could be classified as a professional drinker... where as myself who tried to keep up with him... not so much! I think I held up good though! That beer though killed me. First time I have ever vomited after drinking and its not an experience I plan to duplicate lol. Was even worse the fact I had to work at 3 till 11. However, my boss was kind enough to cover for me until 5 to let me go home and get some sleep and shower which I cannot thank her enough for!

I wanna thank everyone for the continued support. Seeing the numbers climb like this is amazing. Makes me happy to know that people may or may not be interested in my day to day life. Work on the wallpaper will resume tomorrow. So I hope you will look forward to it! Oh a shot out to Braxus, your picture will be finished this weekend!

Well not to work on todays sketch lol See you again soon!

Lova ya world!

Sketch 46 - Sophie

Its funny how this character came to be. I received an anthro commission and Rich and I were talking about the art form and how you hardly ever see a reptilian or dragon anthro so I decided to give it a shot and thats how Sophie was created! Now I'm gonna ask everyone out there what colors she should be!

Went for my blood work today. 6 vials of blood for like 12 tests uhhg. lol. I don't hate needles but I hate the feeling of my blood leaving my body through a needle. Apparently it happens a bit. I am posting early tonight because I will be hanging out with Alex again tonight before he leaves for British Columbia again. And I would like to have a drink or two without having to worry about driving home. So I will be off to work then a good night.

Love ya <3

P.S. I have a deal going on for my CG commissions. Send me an email ( or FB message or twitter message if your interested! I am only opening 5 spots with one already taken.

Sketch 45 - Mwah!

Ah perspective... thy enemy. It didnt turn out too bad i suppose. So its Rich and I kissing on a walk. Today has been a wonderful day~

First I woke up to my mum telling I actually had to work 6-10 instead of 3-10. Then I finished my book I got for Easter. I LOVE IT!!!!! Kelley Armstrong is such an amazing writer! Cannot wait for the 2nd to come out. For those who don't know what I'm talking about. I received Kelley Armstrong's novel The Gathering for Easter its the first book of the second trilogy in the young adult series The Darkest Powers she is working on. There are a lot of references to the Women of the Otherworld series and the first trilogy in The Gathering and it was awesome to read throughout all the conspiracies and what not. Anyways I then jumped on the computer and started translating my videos and noticed the new SNSD/Girls Generation Japanese song Taxi had the Dance MV out! It's so AMAZING and the girls sound perfect and look drop dead gorgeous. After that I remembered to check my emails and send off a few emails.

After sending off the one to skin candy (who does the ink I use for tattoos) about the white having the same reaction on everyone I use it on they offered to replace it with a new one, which I was shocked but very pleased with. And they answered my email in no word of a lie 5 minutes. Shortly after batting emails back and forth with skin candy I received 2 emails from steam saying they gave me back my account FINALLY. Then at work I got my cash out done early and nearly balanced! but it doesn't end there!

I get home to talk to Richard and the Skype quality was superb and he was amazing. but then I started getting pains and looking at the clock I realize I have to be up in less than 6 hours so off to bed! Goodnight world! Love ya <3

P.S. I wanna give a shout out to my sister, Shelina. It's her 21st birthday today ( the 27th of April). We may not get along at the best of times but still love you. Happy birthday lil sis.
