Why can't I be good at titles? I think I complain about this every time I write a journal.
Anyway, I did a few things this week and I figured it justified a journal entry. (I used to write one of these every day, sometimes multiple. Now it's lucky if I write once a week.)
First off, my parents went on a trip to a car race in Kentucky last week. The company my dad works for was sponsoring a racer and my dad was invited to go. The hotel and everything would be paid for, all he had to do was get there. So he an my mom went. They looks at some historical sites, some horses(either race or show horses), went to Nauvoo, and the race, fun stuff.
While they did that. We were left home alone to fend for ourselves. We got $50 in grocery money. We didn't die or anything, so that's good.
Monday, I went to a youth conference with my cousin. She invited me to go with her because her ward doesn't have very many active youth. She would have been the only girl going while there were four boys. Not exactly the most favorable situation. So we went to Utah State University for a couple days. We stayed in the dorms there, did some activities, fun stuff. We also went on a hike to the Wind Caves, canoeing, made s'mores(my jacket smelled very much like a campfire after that), and went boating. All fun stuff. On the hike, a couple of the boys freaked out cuz they saw a baby rattlesnake. It disappeared before anyone else showed up though. But throughout the rest of the trip, they kept insisting that they almost died. I did see a blow snake on the same hike a few minutes later. Climbed a rock wall and discovered that it's kind scary to slip and not feel the rope keep you securely in place like when you have a belayer. It's still safe, but it felt scary. You can't just lean back and take a break either. Whatever, it was fun. When we went boating, the boat actually didn't work. So we hung around there for awhile and did whatever. Somehow, i ended up with a guitar and started playing with it. I have no idea how to play guitar. But I managed to figure out how to play ode to joy and Brothers(from FMA) on it. I was proud of myself.
We were supposed to head home around 2, but that's when we finally got the boat to work again, so we decided to stick around until 5. I just sat on the boat and enjoyed the wind. Got home around 8:30-ish pm on Wednesday.
Now I'm home and lazy again. I decided I want to make another shimeji. I started working on one for my OC, Jian. I drew one picture, but didn't really liked how it looked, then stopped. XD I still wanna do it though. But I gotta figure out what style I want to draw it. Also, I need to figure out a new way to work. I got my own computer, so I don't use the family one anymore. Only problem is that I don't really have a 'desk' of sorta anymore. So working with both the computer and the tablet on my lap has been rather difficult. So I need to sort that out. I'm even less likely to work on art than I was before... Anyway, I'll make do with what I have. Somehow.
Maybe I could take point commissions for shimejis? I did that Raimundo one before. I could do some for the other monks. Maybe a Twilight Princess Link I'll be satisfied with(didn't like many of the ones I found). Maybe some Dishonored shimejis? I don't know.
Anyway, that's all for now.
