Hiatus over and updates

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 9, 2012, 3:45 PM
wordcount:
12,500


It was technically over like 3 days ago... but I'm too lazy to post journals with school and NaNo and all.

Anyways, updates! First off sorry for the art spam on both accounts the last few days. I have several other projects in the works that I'm not even sharing at all yet and I've been freakishly art busy at school which is weird since I'm not even in an art class xD.

And speaking of school art projects... My digital photography teacher badly wants me to enter the Doodle 4 Google contest next spring. She says I have a really good chance to win and she wants me to take the whole 2 months to make a huge elaborate entry so I do win. It's mostly because she wants the $50,000 prize that goes to your school for a technology upgrade.... xD. But I'm really excited to work on that, I just have to wait until the theme is announced in January. :la:

I'm also in band now playing the xylophone and chimes... all at once. I've never played either and I have to figure out the best technique and way to play them in 3 weeks and know the music to 3-4 songs and be able to play with the rest of the band... and one of the weeks is thanksgiving break ._. It'll be interesting but fun.  :shifty:

Also on the music run I'm going to go out singing at a few local restaurants to earn money this winter in the form of tips. Especially with Christmas music~ It'll be lots of fun and I know a few places to go try :) I just need a piano player that I can work with for a few hours to play the music xD and stuff... It'll be good though and a way to make some Christmas money. :nod:

Here's a few dA related things on my agenda:
1) Do the feature for all the prize donators and contest winners soon.
2) Clean out my room and upload some pictures of some really cool items for sale.
3) Get pictures of more of my other random and finished art projects from school.
4) Post my top secret article on November 20th fir projecteducate
5) Possibly write and post another article during that week for them.

As to 5... I need ideas from you guys. What leadership topic would you like me to related to dA for them? I've done the lost art of friendship for you guys in relation to being a good watcher/friend. The top secret one is about finding purpose to create mastery in art. What topic would you like me to go more in depth into and explain in a dA related article? I mean there's conflict resolution, personality types, PDCA (plan do check adjust) to improve faster in art, etc. So many ideas, but what would you guys like and what do you think would most benefit the community?

Health update, I'm still mysteriously sick with these weird pain bouts. I'm going to the doctor on Tuesday and we're going to try and figure this mess out. I'm starting to fell gall pain again, on top of this new mystery pain, even though it's out but apparently stones and other issues can flair up in the duct that's left behind from the gall bladder being removed. I don't know what to think but I just want the nightmare to be over soon  so I can do things and be normal soon. :(

Lastly sorry for flaring up any political issues. Just agree to disagree and let's leave it all at that :)

Hope ya'll have a nice weekend!

AJ

Good luck on Tuesday, I hope you'll be able to get answers soon.

Playing the xylophone and chimes at the same time sounds... difficult XD

Articles idk, personality types sounds super interesting (psychology, YES) but this is an art site so XD hmmm improvement's always a good topic to cover. (Though I always seem to get hung up on reading stuff on how to improve... AND NOT DRAWING ANYTHING BECAUSE I'M READING orz)

I really hope the doctor will be able to tell you what's wrong, must be frustrating =/
The Doodle 4 google sounds like fun, best of luck with that :D
And about the article.... personalities seems like fun, not necesarily the most useful (art wise) but definately fun!

Sounds... interesting XD
It's hard to say whether or not it's tasty without having tasted it
But it still sounds like just a little variation on a hotdog in a bun ;p
