End Me.

Having recently started my third term of school, I've leaped back in to my daily routines rather ineffectively. This morning, I awoke an hour later than I should have (7:10AM rather than 6:10AM) and had to rush to get myself ready for school. In this time I entirely forgot about many things and ended up forgetting to both drink and eat, which I am required to do when taking my meds. Needless to say, about half an hour upon arriving at school I began to get nauseous and spent half the day queasy and not willing to do any work.

The one good thing to come of today and the past few days is that I have at least got back in to a reasonable reading routine. Having not read a word of a book for three weeks, it's really quite nice to pick up my crime thriller Dr. Death and read about the ethical tightropes the characters walk upon the subject of assisted suicide.
   On the matter of reading, I also last night messaged my town council to sign me up to the online eBook selection which requires a valid library card number. So now, I have leased one three week book titled The Eye Collector, a crime thriller (as usual) and intend to read it alongside Scaredy Cat upon finishing Dr. Death.

Drawing has come naturally to me these past few days also, and I've mostly done simple, small sketches on my blue notepaper that sits beside my computer atop my desk. I've created a new OC, so far nameless, who vaguely resembles 2D from Gorillaz in aspects of their design, includig the blacked out eyes.

Writing has been painfully slow for me and I haven't opened my fanfiction (though it's not really a fanfiction, it just takes the basis of a movie and uses it) for this entire week so far, too stressed about upcoming exams in school. Mock exams are nearing, in week five, and I'm terrified of them. Even more so because I don't think I'm going to be able to pass the year, as I have very few credits logged from my assignments. This could however just be because my English teacher never freaking puts them on my account and as such they don't get sent to NZQA. I'm hoping that the end of year externals give me enough credits (I get about 15 per class, some of them only 10, with 5 classes. Worst case scenario, 30 credits.)

Anyhow, that'll be all for today as I am terribly bored and intend on listening to music and dying for the next hour until bed time.

School And Dump

Today marks my final day as a free person, and in about eight minutes my bed will call for me, I'll read, I'll sleep, and I'll go to school for the first time in two weeks upon waking.

Realising suddenly I had homework, today became a mad rush to finish the Static Image I had due for English tomorrow. I did so on my iPad, so it's terribly done and has no pressure sensitivity.

As you can see, it's a clear reference to Hannibal Rising, both book and movie form. It was for an assignment titled "Static Image" in which one must choose an important quote or theme from a text (including movies, poems etc.) and display this text and its background in symbolism. You can probably get the gist of the image just by looking at it, but yeah everything means something and most of it was just making fun of the assignment because for some reason in English everything has to be a representation of something deeper.


I also drew two Pokemon pictures, and while one is clearly better than the other (*cough cough* the Mimikyu *cough cough*) I still love both of my babies. 

But yeah anyhow off to bed...

Mission Impossible: Being Productive

 Second to last day of the holidays. Things accomplished:
  • Level 152 on Maplestory, Bishop. 
  • Spend 22.34NZD on NX for said Maplestory character (Probably a bad idea but eh I'm 16 let me live)
Things I probably should have accomplished:
  • Homework finished. I have 2 things due first day back, and an exam paper.
  • Taking my meds. It's a bit late for that now.
  • Feeding my fish. Probably didn't do that because, y'know, forgot my meds and was a nauseous mess all day.
  • Written fanfic (sounds dumb but I swear it's not stupid 12 year old shit. I'm lit I promise.)
Most importantly, I probably should get on to my Russian studies. Been kinda slacking on that. Oops.

Regardless, the reason I accomplished so little and that which I did accomplish were completely trivial game-based achievements (or money spending oops) is that I, last night, had the worst sleep known to man. I went to bed at say 11pm like usual for a holiday night, but found myself tossing and turning unable to sleep for a good hour before I figured out what was wrong. My duvet inside had all piled up at the end, and the sheet between me and it had ridden up and bunched together. Of course, at this point, I'm hella tired and just want to die so I curl up in a ball and suffer in the cold for another good hour before rolling on to my back and dozing off at say 1.30AM.
   Hooo boy but that isn't the end of it all, oh no. My mum got up to go to the weekend market (she sells baking and jams and stuff there each Saturday) at around 5:40AM and woke me up. So I got what, 4:10 hours of sleep? Pretty shit sleep no less, no cool dreams about hot cannibals or any of that steamy shit. Just blackness. Even better, it turned out it was raining so she didn't even go to the fucking market and just went back to bed. But I was already wide fucking awake at this point, and just decided to sit on my phone for a couple of hours before drawling myself out from under my bunched up, mess of a fucking duvet.

So yeah, 23/07/16 ended up not such a good day. There's still time. There's still like 5 hours left. I might actually do my homework or something who knows.

Probably not tho don't get ur hopes up.

Cyrillic Problems

 For the past hour and a half I have been relentlessly practicing my otherwise god awful Cyrillic script. As I do intend to study in Russia in the coming future as a university student, it is only reasonable that I learn Russian, which I have been doing for some months now. However, the one thing that ties me up in a knot of "I-give-the-fuck-up" is their damned handwriting.

It annoys me that their first graders can pick it up without a second glance and become masterful artists with a calligraphy pen, but I can't even form the word люблю (love/like) without it looking like a jumbled mess. I suppose I should probably print some of their worksheets out that they teach their native students with.

In fact, you know what, in case any of you are suffering the same linguistic troubles, here's a nice pdf document to practice your Cyrillic script:

If anyone wants, we can compare shitty Russian notes and cry about our choice in linguistic study.
