Busy Problems

Oops, well Gen you are a total fail with being late with everything, even updating your easy-to-update livejournal.
But, things have been rather hectic. I have precisly four more days intill all my coursework needs to be handed in and I'm extremely paranoid and extremely busy...no shit. I'm just really nervous and hoping I have everything done. I was like this a few months ago with my first hand-in, it's going to take a long time to get used to.

But, things at home haven't been great either. And I don't think this is the sort of place where I should go into detail, I'll just write about it whilst still being quiet about it. Things with family, seems broken apart and rumours which really had me upset recently. It's hard to know who to believe and I always wondered if this is what I really deserved. A broken family, a condition which ruined my previous aspiration, friend problems throughout high school and the not-going-to-Germany problem - I was really looking forward to going to Germany this year to see Marie..but next year I'll make sure it happens.

There is so much to balance whilst I have to stay top-notch in University too. It's getting hard and I may talk with my tutors to tell them what has been happening and that such things might affect my work. I've never sought help for it before, but maybe it's about time I did? It might really help and something might be done, I just need to give them a chance.

BOOM

I'm about up to here with youtube right now. Ever since companies started moaning and then google buying it, it's the worse site ever to use for hobbies or anything else. Why do people have to bitch and whine about the smallest thing? I'm getting sick of it.

I got my first strike on a Birthday WORM I uploaded, so now I have to upload that elsewhere for the birthday girl to download herself. I found out that Avec Entertainment were the ones who claimed on it, a Japanese based company, and one of the editors in that WORM used a song sung by Alan, and she was on their clients list.

This is just stupid. It's not like anyone makes any money from using a song alongside a video. It's a hobbie, just like when people dancing to fucking dance music or whatever the hell you want to call it. Do they get bashed too!? I don't think so..

If I get two more strikes my account is likely to get suspended. I've had that account for..what 3/4 years now? And it means a lot. I have two videos left in the copyright ID matches section and those two videos mean a lot to me. But the only way I'll be sure not to get another strike is if I delete them - and it's hard.

Stupid screwtube, stupid whiny companies.

Enchanted..and work continues.

So it's already Tuesday, seems like this year is going fast for me and it's actually quite frightening. But, I guess I have to be ready for anything I suppose. I had a few bad points about yesterday. I just went to bed feeling rather glum although I did manage to upload BabyFantasiaxx's birthday WORM at last. Everyone did amazing in it and you can watch it right here:

Watch Here

But right now I'm sitting in Uni and did non-stop research and development work. I did some print outs. I just need to keep to my timetable and everything will go smoothly.
I also just finished eating a Chicken Piri Piri Fajita (sp) Wrap, it was extremely spicy and my head almost blew off, but the thing is, I normally can handle most spicy food. That wrap was lethal!

Urg..I'm also anticipating Final Fantasy XIII Versus, I was thinking about it today and wondering when it was going to come out.

Current LJ Plans

Well I have said on several occasions about icon batches, and yes..I'm exceptionally slow when it comes to icon batches but I really want to get some out there. I do have a Genesis one which is all fanart (which belongs to their respected artists) which I gathered during my obsessive fanart raids across the world of the internet.

Literally across the world, I ain't kidding. I was typing stuff in JAPANESE to find some of the epic stuff I found. Now that's called dedication my friend.

So, when will you expect to see some icon batches coming up?

I have no idea really, since these last 2 weeks are going to be hectic but I will need time to unwind right? Gen could spend that on actually finishing off some of these batches. So, you might see them soon, or your might not. Whether you care or not, I don't mind.

All Done

So my presentation a few days ago went very well and I got a lot go positive feedback for my typography animation. I'm thinking about uploading it onto my youtube channel but I'm still very consious of it since it was my first time using Flash when I am more comfortable with programs like After Effects and Sony Vegas Pro.

But..I'll think about it.

My next project which I have been assigned it to do anything I want to prove to them why I should continue the course into next year. I was really stuck for ideas first. I wanted to do an animation with a cartoon character I created ages ago but 2 weeks wouldn't have been enough time. Then I thought about doing a boring typography poster based on me but then I was like..."uh not interesting enough" lol

But my final idea was a dramatic cheesy movie trailer with Sony Vegas and After Effects whilst asking my brother to voice-over it (He can to the dramatic X-Factor commentor voice due to his love of voice-acting) - and that's what I'm going to go with. They said it didn't have to be epic because we only had 2 weeks for it and it was to convey a message basically. During those 2 weeks I have to go over my other coursework and get everything done to hand it all in in May.

This next 2 weeks is going to be busy busy busy..and I'm nervous as hell.

Presentation

Uh, kinda suck about not updating for a few days again but don't shoot me - not like everyone in the world reads these things anyway..

But, I got a presentation today about my typography animation and right now I'm sitting in my studio waiting because I arrived here early. I'm sort of nervous but then again I can't wait to get it over and done with and to see everyone else's so I can move onto the next project - which looks rather fun.

I really need to start shipping out my icon batches too, but..I'm too lazy to complete my sets. Also got a lot of fandoms to catch up with. Oh lawd, I'm dead.

Writer's Block: The long and winding road

Are there any difficult events in your past that made you a stronger person today? If you could go back and erase them, would you?

Yeah, quite a few of them which is surprising to fit them all in 19 years. But, I think everything that happened has made me stronger about "myself. I had some tough times during my last years of high school. My best friends getting into some terrible things which turned me more into a solitary person. But, although I was suffering with depression, I learned more about myself and my creative side. This made me concentrate on things which were important. After that, I kept close to the friends that stood by me and I got to know them better than before because I knew myself better. Which made me learn that to know others you need to understand yourself. Might sound like a confusing concept but it worked for me. Also, the other things that happened has made me go through some stressful times - and it still is stressful but I don't want to get bogged down about it. I was to come out on top because I know it will make me a better person.

Of course, there is times where I wish certain things didn't happen but in my eyes everything seems to happen for one reason or another. It's how life goes. It isn't meant to be covered in cotton candy!

Typography, Pasta and Dissidia

I finally finished my Typography Animation for my Semester Two project - I really hope it is able to keep the grade I'm predicted. I have a presentation next Tuesday but considering I'm going to have transport issues that day I will have to change it. But, a lot of my classmates haven't even done 10 seconds of the animation yet and you need at least 15 seconds to be in the good eyes of the tutors. At least I've actually finished it I guess but I'll probably use the remaining time before the full hand-in in May to correct mistakes and add things to it to be completely comfortable to it. Alongside that, I just need to create the concept sheets and finish off some sketches and do a little research. I'm kind of working backwards but I really wanted that animation done so I didn't have to panic.

I've had pasta for at least three days in a row this week from the University Canteen, all being a different flavour each day. I guess this makes me a pasta addict? Or is it just that the canteen doesn't offer anything better? I dunno.

On another note, I bought Dissidia 012 Duodecim about a week ago and it's been keeping me occupied on long journeys. Its a definite improvement from the last game but I wish they did more to the World Map. Some more DLC's are coming up this month and they don't seem THAT expensive at all. I don't know why everyone is complaining about DLC's for some reason. Don't people want to add extra stuff to their games? I guess one reason is allowing people to download new "characters" to the game but is that possible? Probably..who knows. Enix might surprise us.

Writer's Block: Making a better day

If you were given one magic wish to improve the world, for what would you wish?

I would wish for everyone to have the access to clean, healthy water. With that people will probably have improved health and be able to grow healthy crops for food etc. And also be able to bath/shower in a comfortable enviroment. It is one thing which will promote the growth of a society - it's the essential ingrediant for life.
