Recollections and the future...  
This picture is from the collage on my bedroom wall, it's from my college graduation. Lauren, Val, Sarah, and me.. Sometimes I wish that I could go back to that college time, because in a lot of ways it was really great. It also had it's own problems too of course, but oh, the college life was nice. I really miss Lauren and co~ I have so many great memories in Arizona. And really, life in general. My life is full of great memories. I'm sure that there are many more in store. I'm not even a quarter of the way into life, after all! (And even less in if I can manage to live forever, like I want to ^^-- がんばるニャ!)

I really, really love the weekend! Especially when the weather is so gorgeous. =^o^= It's still pretty hot, but I got up only a little bit late (8) and made breakfast, got ready, and then took a short walk in the sun. Then came back to work on manga in the sunlight pouring in my bedroom window. Yesterday, I bought a nice soft, oh-so-comfy desk chair for really cheap from the used shop on the way home from getting my stitches taken out, and I rolled it home and have since fallen in love with it. It's so comfortable, it's perfect! I rearranged my room also, and I love it! Eventually I'll move my bed out of the little room into the bigger one (I have 2) and use this one for an art studio. It will be really, really great! There's so many more things that I need to collect though, before I can make it a reality! (It's just a matter of money. ^^) But Mew-chan and I are planning to start some kind of anime-store and maybe I can use my cut of the proceeds to furniture my bedroom, studio, and the living room downstairs. =^-^=

I walked to get Nessie some more cat food last night, and I had a really, really great idea for a yuri story. I was working on one already, but I think that this one will work really nice, so I'm going to follow-up on it today. I noticed that mood-music really helps though, to get the feeling that I want to out of writing. Actually, not the writing so much, but the visuals. I need that mood that the music gives me to be able to put the right spin on things, so to speak. I'm not sure if that makes sense. Well, the song that inspired me so much was Cora Corman's (Haley Bennet) Buddha's Delight, from the movie (one of my favorite) Music and Lyrics. That might hint as to what kind of opening scene there might be, lol. ^.~

Career meme

Sounds like a great day.

Here it's among the first 秋晴れ weather, sky is bright blue shining through my window, and I have old music on, burning some incense from 日光東照宮, drinking coffee, and studying stuff. My absolutely favorite sort of Saturday. Later I will go out to the coffeehouse and read more novels.

I need to be doing some art myself, doing a silk-screening "how to" thing for some people next weekend so I should come up with a design I want to put on my own shirts. Probably something with my avatar from LJ, maybe. Dunno.

Having a studio sounds great. My house is pretty open plan, but I have my desk all set up in the front by the wall of total windows (where people walk by) and I do love it, just sit down and everything is all ready to go (well, once I toss the cat off :))

Cheers, and well met! I happened to come across your LJ here whilst randomly browsing Gaia.

I also see that you too are named Jamie. How about that! ^_^

Man, I can't wait to be out of college. I am getting tired of all the studying, papers, boring lectures, and exams. But, I shall be graduating in May, so that makes me happy. I'll just have to keep working toward that day.
Hopefully after I graduate I will be getting ready for a full year in Japan, maybe longer if I like the program... It all depends on what I want to do for graduate school.
Good luck with your manga writing.

Haha, I took that career test and wasn't really interested in any of the top 10 suggestions that popped up, makes me wonder XD Nessie is looking cuter by the day, love your pics of her <3

that meme's quiz is so unreliable sometimes though. It told me I should be a graphic designer. I laughed.

Man, now I wish I had looked at more of my results after the top 10 but I was distracted and closed the page really fast. Some of them are really funny... XD

Erin said she finished the book! Hooo!
