Pixel aaaart. Because it’d be super cool if I could make a video game. Not happening anytime soon, but y’know.
Shamelessly ripped from Dawn’s pixel in Pokemon DPPt.
Also, this is the actual, un-enlarged image.
This was supposed to be an image, but it got too large, so I separated it, which, I suppose, is a good thing because it could be an indicator that my life has been pretty freakin’ awesome this year.
OH! Wait. Also. This is going to be a long post that’s largely for my personal satisfaction, so I’m gonna put most of it under the cut. If you’re into reading about personal mush and checking out some semi-shitty sketches, then feel free to proceed. If not, skip.
Back to tumbling!
Wow, it’s been a while, but I’m finally home and finals-free. Yessss.
Anyways, drawing based on my first meteor shower. Of course, my first meteor shower was in the winter, so instead of lounging leisurely in the grass, I was butt numb because it was below freezing. Also, the lighting’s off. But I digress.
I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress this year. My style’s different, I identified a lot of my weak spots (same face syndrome, not drawing the entire body, and perspective), and I worked on things that I’ve never done before (colors and backgrounds). Iunno. It’s been a really good year. C:
Look at all you cuties!
If you got accepted, congrats! I look forward to seeing your adorable faces next year.
If you got deferred, no worries. Just make sure to keep working hard and to continue to show interest in Wellesley, and you’ll be fine. You’re awesome people, and the admissions office sees something special in you.
To those who were rejected, don’t despair. You’re all phenomenal, and you’ll go on to do phenomenal things. I promise that college will be great no matter where you go, and if your college of choice doesn’t end up meeting your expectations, that’s fine too; you can always transfer.
Bottom line, guys: Take this time to celebrate yourself regardless of your admissions results. You’ve all worked really hard, and you should be proud of your accomplishments (haha, so cheesy but true nonetheless).
Time to rebuild my social life. And study for finals. Y’know. That too.
They’re both really awesome schools in the Chicago area. :D They’re both really intense; UChicago has a reputation for being more intense than Northwestern. UChicago’s very urban and science-focused. Northwestern’s in a college town (Evanston) and is science-y but also has a rockin’ journalism program. I have friends in both schools, and they all seem to be pretty happy! Personally, I like Northwestern better because of sentimentality (I went to summer camp there for a couple years), but honestly, they’re both great schools with really strong academics! If you want a more in-depth explanation of the schools, feel free to shoot me another message. I have an obscenely extensive knowledge of colleges/universities. OTL Another great thing to do would be to find a current student from either of these schools and asking them about the social climate and that kind of stuff because I can give you my first impressions, but I can’t give you the dirty details. C: Hope that helps!
1) think about what needs doing next and just pick something
2) don’t tell anyone in detail what you’re going to do or else you get the same satisfaction triggered in your brain and it makes you a lot less likely to do it (google this if you don’t believe it)
3) go fuckin do it
4) come back and show everyone
I log into tumblr and see this.
Happy Hell Week, everyone. Back to work.
And I do mean everyone.
SO, I have been seeing a lot of posts about URLs recently and I think that I want to try something like this…
What I’m going to do is if you reblog this post, I’ll catalog your URL in this notebook and send you a message giving you a suggestion for a good book, song and show based on what I can tell from your blog.
If your blog’s awesome, I’ll follow and maybe send you all three.
Also if you don’t reblog this by December 10th then you will have to wait until 2013 for me to restart this notebook cataloging cause I do need to catch up with all the stuff. THIS POST’S DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 10TH! but I promise I will start it up again once it’s 2013.
