Normally I ignore these things, otherwise you'd see me journalling about it every week or two. But its been ages since I last participated and I suppose I need a new journal. So why not
Though I really don't expect anyone to read it all, but there are probably some people can relate to.
Though I love looking at Final Fantasy fan-art (and I would love drawing it as often too if it weren't for anatomy issues that discourage me from doing it more regularly) the truth is I've played very little Final Fantasy and am pretty sucky at RPG games in general and would much rather play something like Mario
But I do very much admire Final Fantasy's beautiful and inspiring characters and environments...just from an artistic viewpoint.
When I was a kid, and even to an extent now I was mesmerized by anything that was round, colourful or could spin, like a fly is drawn to a bug-zapper light
this probably is why I got interested in space from as young as 8. But even so - my favourite toys were things that fit this criteria - marbles, bouncy-balls, pinwheels, bubbles, spinning-tops, balloons and so on all made me much happier than action figures, cars or other stereotypical boys toys
I'm 22 and still can't drive...I got as far as a few hours of practicing and that was a few years ago already. To be honest - driving and owning a car dosn't interest me the slightest. I don't have anyone to see, don't have anywhere to be...a Car to me would just be a really big, expensive paperweight for most of the time, not to mention the concept of me being behind the wheel on a road full of other drivers fills me with terror...I can barely handle a bumper-car at an amusement park. But believe it or not, if I must
own and use a vehicle I'd prefer a motorbike, even then I'm concered about the danger of a crash
I'm still pretty afraid of the dark...blame numerous dark-related traumatic moments I had throughout my childhood years, and an overly vivid imagination that isn't always as bright and pleasing as what I show through my art. I still sleep with the door slightly open a bit since I don't like feeling enclosed alone in a dark room
According to the doctor's, my taste buds didn't devlop properly so this means I have the picky but simple diet and fussy nature of a little kid. Many normal foods taste rotten to me, I often only like the very basics - french fries, chicken nuggets, cheese pizza, spaghetti etc are like the only hot foods I eat. I know, not a very healthy diet - but everything else makes me wanna puke...it kinda sucks since I'm always out of place when people are having dinner and usually just find something to snack on
In high school I got kicked out of class practically every day. I wouldn't say I was a "bad kid" - just very disruptive with my random noises, talking over the teacher, throwing stuff across the room or drawing when I should have been doing my work. Still got alright grades on everything but maths though, so I didn't think it mattered, I actually pitied the students who spent all their time studying, but had no respect for the stupid kids either, there needs to be a happy medium I say
My hair isn't naturally blonde
its brown, but that's still better than when I was a kid where I was a red head! I got made fun of for it a lot actually, I guess society just dosn't like red hair, even I having had it know what an undesireble feature that is...lucky when I hit my teens it darkened to brown
I still prefer animation over live-action both on TV and the movies. I am disappointed that so many of today's new cartoons suck both in animation style and weak humour due to everything having to be done so sensitivly and politically correct these days. But overall I'm more inclined to watch cartoons over live-action stuff so long as the cartoons are good quality
I type with my index fingers only and still don't have any knowledge of computers that extend beyond Photoshop or 3D stuff. To be honest, if I didn't love digital art and dA so much I could easily last weeks without e'm since I use them for little else...I didn't start using the computer daily until 2006 (when I joined dA) before then I lasted many years just fine without touching computers for days or weeks at a time, now they sadly consume me
In case you havn't noticed by now - I feel the need to explain everything in detail. I'm like this in real life too and sometimes people find it anoying. But I see it as a sign of good English skills since I use metaphors and such a lot to explain things further too
