So my little bro's bday was last Friday, and since he was turning (anything but sweet) 16, I decided to sneakily ask him what his fave animu character was, and make him a card. (Also I finally learned how to embed dA pics to save time! *huzzah*)

Have some Alucard-card! :D

Probably the most terrifying birthday card ever... )

Remember that rant from last week about how I hate my workplace?
Round 2... )

So you know I scored that job a month and a bit ago, right? I pretty much hate it.

I thought it would take me some time to adjust and everything, and I'm an optimist at heart, but I really don't like this job. There are several reasons for this, of which I shall list below:

Continued rantage... )

So I've been thinking about it for a little while, but I think (despite trying to save up for a USA holiday) that I want to use some of my xmas money to buy myself a graphics tablet. I love my marker pens, but I want to have a stab at drawing and painting digitally (it would make my problem of going outside the lines so much easier to fix).

So are there any tablets (or brands) that you can recommend?

Title: Intoxication
Rating: T
Warnings: Spoilers for Fai's past.
Summary: Written for the remix challenge over on the [community profile] kurofai comm. My assigned author was [personal profile] uakari and the fic I chose to remix was the brilliant Toasty. The original concept was that it was Kurogane getting drunk instead of Fai, and it was set in Outo, so I took that and somehow this came out. I hope you enjoy it!

And thanks also to [personal profile] mikkeneko for starting this wonderful remix idea!

The noises that could be heard from the outside suggested they were entertaining a group of rowdy felines... )

Because the weather is so crappy here right now (winter is coming lololol), I decided to use as many bright colours as possible and draw Chii for one of my friend's birthdays. Enjoy the imaginary sunshine!

Chiiiiiii... )

So it's only a part time, three nights a week at most deal, but I got a job! Yay, sweet money!

It's basically waitressing at this fairly posh pub-that-is-pretty-much-a-restaurant in my town, doing the usual stuff only the dishes are stuff like venison meatballs, rabbit and pheasant. O.o

Though I must admit, my boss seems pretty nice and I didn't have a single horrible customer on my (nerve-wracking) first night, which was also a trial to see if I'd get the job. I did feel a little teary-eyed when I made mistakes, but I am very self-critical at times.

I may have to get a day job, however, just to make more money, and also to rid myself of the creeping boredom coming from suddenly not being at uni this year and running out of things to do. It's not procrastination if there's no work to be done! Although I am going to be applying for PhDs soon, so that'll be something exciting to procrastinate from! XD

At least with this it means I don't have to stress as much about finding a job, and I can concentrate more on making myself sound good enough to get a PhD (ah, why do I have so little research experience?), and I can also start saving up to go back to the USA (finally!) which was my real reason for looking for a job for this year in the first place.

Yay! Employment! It's been a while, so it's nice to get back into the bustle of work. :D

This is it, the last little segment of this staggeringly long fic! I never imagined it would turn out this long, I just started out writing and ended up with nearly 20,000 words (*le gasp*)- that's very nearly three times the length of my previous fic. Don't think I'll be doing this again for a while, but it was great fun to write! Hope you've enjoyed it! :D

Chapter 6 is over here!

You gave me a piece of advice, so it's only fair I return the favour... )
