Oddly enough, it looks as though I update this about twice a month... not bad for someone who doesn't keep these things well! Let's see... what's been happening...

Well, I have a new job! I work for a psychiatrist as his receptionist. It's basically a medical records job plus checking in patients for their visits... and marketing..... and billing and insurance.

It's a lot. But it pays well! 14/hr right now, then in a month or two I'll be up to 15/hr, not bad! The doc is kinda hard to work for. He's a SEVERE micro-manager who changes his mind from one moment to the next on what he wants. No joke, he'll ask me to do something, I'll do said task immediately and he'll ask me as I'm doing it, WHY I'm doing it or he'll say I shouldn't do it! Strange...

But he's a nice guy overall and it's a good stable job, so I'm happy. =) The nurse is a pretty cool guy, we have a lot in common and get along very well. All in all, things are good! Hopefully I'll get a paycheck soon. I just started, and it's always hard waiting for that first paycheck.

Everything else sort of got put on hold because of this. Knitting has all but halted, not much time for games though we just got Little Bit Planet 2. It's awesome! We got the collectors edition so I have an OFFICIAL Sack Boy plush. ^^ He is very cute! Hrm... what else?

Can't think of anything. Perhaps now that income is to be had, I will do more with myself and have more to talk about. Until then, toodles!

Nothing as cool as being a clothing model. I recently downloaded ZBrush, a 3D modeling program, to just dink around with. It's fun!

I started by watching a couple youtube videos about how to use the stupid thing, cause I couldn't figure it out on my own for the life of me. Once I learned how to create the initial poly-skin, it's been pretty smooth sailing!

Oddly enough, I'm finding 3D modeling easier than drawing 2D characters... for some reason I can more easily sculpt a realistic looking body than draw one. Probably has to do with the fact that, you know, we see things in 3D and I see bodies/people more often than I see cartoon characters or drawings of people.

The program itself is sweet and actually really easy to use. I really only use 3 or 4 brush types so far but I'm far from finished. I've got a basic body done... I'm afraid to start the face. I've NEVER been good with faces... or hands. I almost had the feet but those got warped somehow and now they're kinda flipper like lol!

Either way, I plan to have a neato model done eventually... perhaps my dA account will be resurrected?

Yup, the holidays are here! At least, they are in the retail sector as I'm sure you've noticed. The Xmas decorations are up, the Hickory Farms kiosk is now open and I've been bumped up to working 5 days a week. It's great because that means more money for me but it's also the end to my lazy days at home doing absolutely nothing. =P Sadness.

But more money means bills get payed and it's always great to pay the bills right? Especially since I now have a new bill because my student loans have to be repaid due to non-attendance. Damn that non-resident tuition!

Irvine Valley College Tuition (4-year college)
Non-Resident CA: $243 per credit
Resident CA: $26 per credit

I kid you not! It's way cheap to go to school here, I just have to gain residency. Come next August I am SO back in school and getting that Japanese degree. =D I can't wait!

So I logged on today thinking "This would be a good time to make another entry!" and low and behold, the theme I chose changed and now looks very bad. X.X So after I post this I'm going to fix it and choose a new one (which is too bad because I REALLY liked the old one!)

I got a job! Huzzah! You know those people flying little toy copters in the malls? That's me! Of course, my copters are 1337 compared to the other ones. Technically, I work for a toy company that sends reps out to demo their toys. That's what I do. But our company has exclusive contracts and right now I work at a Brookstone. If they're selling it at Brookstone you KNOW it's quality, right?

It's a fun job, probably the funnest I've ever had! Ok, so cake decorating is the funnest, but this one is a close second for sure. It's hard in it's own right, I'm standing all day and yelling at people to "Hey, check this out! Isn't it cool?" but that isn't exactly strenuous... except on my throat. I tend not to have a voice at the end of the day. But that's ok, cause it's a friggin AWESOME job! I have fun, get paid hourly AND get commission off of every copter sold the day I work. 3 days a week works out to the same as working 5! Awesome...

Anywho, time to go change the background... oh yah. Nobody has this page. Who should get it? I know one or two people for sure... 3 actually. You guys will hear about this soon, I promise!

...Mostly because I often start things that I don't finish. That's not to say that I don't INTEND to follow through with this, just that it may not come to fruition. This is intended to replace my Facebook account so I have a place to speak freely, share neato things and not be harassed, flamed or generally annoyed by those I don't wish to speak to. So to you who got this URL from me, HUZZAH! You have been considered a true friend or, at the very least, a reasonable person (which isn't that bad in my opinion as reasonable people are very hard to find).
