I haven't been on Lj for a while. So far I've been pretty busy since my last post. Work is going alright though I'm looking for a better job that is oriented to my career. I bought a new car since the other one was giving me too much trouble and it was just money being wasted. The last "event" that cause me to choose to get a new car was the fact that my car died on the L street exit from the 5 and it went straight to a pole. Luckily, it completely stopped right before the pole and gave me just enough space for the incoming cars to pass by. There has been a lot of accidents in that area, so a random tow truck offered to take the car to my house (about two blocks away)
The new car is great, its simple, nothing really fancy. It has a lot of potential for road trips and great for outings with the group ^^
I graduate this May =D yey!
but its very "mada mada dame" Not good enough, so I've been looking at grad. studies. I found a good one at the company I want to work for; Scripps Research Institute. They offer a PHD program, I'm guessing you get to work with them afterwards which is perfect. The only catch is that there are only 40 seats a year and they wont have the next orientation till August 2010... That's a year of waiting... so what to do in that time. I have no idea. Its a big blank that needs to be filled... feels wasted. Then there is the chance that I won't get in. Its risky.
I will be working on the comics, of course, that won't change for anything. I've been doing a lot of writing and I am happy with everyone's progress. We really want to see our anthology complete and everyone has been very supportive. I want to be able to help everyone with this project.
Aside from the times I'm busy, which I try to be most of the time, life is a constant roller coaster of ups and downs. After classes started I haven't been able to see and hang out with a lot of my friends but I knew it would happen. More responsibilities require some sacrifices but summer is right around the corner and I will definitely make all kinds of plans to see all of my friends again.
Talking about plans, I have some ideas floating about:
I was talking to Jill about a girls night out. The only problem was there wasn't that many girls to gather XD
I'm sure it will work out somehow. I also wanted to do one with the Biochem. class, its the least for two years studying together. That one may be tricky cause I didn't speak up in class much.
Once it gets warmer I want to plan out a bonfire again =D The last one was so great...except for my car tire exploding XD
I also wanted to go to the drive in with a group and take some chairs. The new car is a hatchback, so we can open the back and have a little picnic while watching some movies =D
Comic con is always great, I will be there everyday this year as a volunteer. We decided not to advertise during this year's comic con... but if we can finish the anthology and send it to copyrights on time then we may pass out some fryers outside of comic con. We are aiming for next year! Twitchy is aiming for... mmm about a week from now or so XD It already looks great and I'm sure it will be successful.
I'm working on three stories and two of the artists working with me, SC and J, went to the Philippines for a month. I have all the scripts and started planning out all my panels for the first issue along with some modifications but we won't start the actual boards till SC and J return. The best one so far is Harbinger, the others need some work. I also wrote some short story ideas and finished one short story. mmmm... I really don't plan to make them actual book stories so I typed them in script. I don't think I'll have time for book form for a while.
I finished watching Clover and Honey II and it kinda hits a sensitive area inside of me but it can't be helped that's how life is. Too bad that in reality it gets even more painful and complicated because your feelings are used and played with. I haven't meet a guy who turned me down as respectful as Mayama would. Then again, he does kinda hold back Yamada for a long time. note: this doesn't have a happy ending, just a reality check.
Which I got one recently...aside from it. I wonder if I'm cruel to some of my friends but I wouldn't want them to feel played with, like I have.
wow this had nothing to do with the Pillow Fight day. Jill, Twitchy, Luis, Brian, little Ben and I went to Horton plaza for a pillow fight. It was fun =D
