A New Start?

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 8, 2011, 1:06 PM


There are times in your life when you simply have to sit back, take a break, and do some deep thinking.

For me, this is one of those times.

My year at Missouri State was pretty much a failure, in my eyes, at least.  I made some great friends, but am only one step closer to discovering what I really want to do with my life.

That one step was discovering that I don't want to teach.  I find there's no point in trying to teach someone who has no interest in what you're saying.

I love museums.  So maybe a degree in museum studies?

That's my new goal.

Last month, my parents took me out to dinner to ask what I was doing with my life.

"My biggest fear is waking up in twenty years and realizing I've wasted my life doing something I don't care about."

What do I care about?  A lot of things.  What do I care about enough to spend the rest of my life with it?  I have no idea.  My life so far is pretty basic... I pick something up, I get bored and throw it away.

What I need is a career counselor.  Someone to help me discover what I really love.

For now, I'm taking a break from college (though a chance at a couple of classes at community college wouldn't be bad) to discover myself, get a job, and think further about this move to Colorado.

And perhaps a new start on dA.  We'll see.

The Adventure of the Infected Tooth

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 13, 2010, 8:11 PM


Started Friday morning:

I went to the ER last night, the first time I have ever gone for myself (that I can remember; I assume my parents took me after I fell off a chair and broke my collarbone at 18 months of age).

Why?  Because the left side of my face is swollen up to my lower eyelid.

Monday night is when I first noticed the pain.  It was confined to a specific tooth then, and from experience I realized it was infected.

The pain kept me up all night.

Tuesday I noticed the swelling.  The pain had spread to the canine next to the incisor.  I called the dentist, but the earliest they could get me in was Friday.

Wednesday I saw the doctor at the school clinic.  He prescribed antibiotics and Tylenol 3 (tylenol with codeine).

Thursday I was so swollen, so miserable that I asked Sister M to take me to the ER.  They could not do much.  Prescribed me some Vicodin and gave me a shot of antibiotics.

I'm allergic to penicillin and sulfa drugs, so that really limits antibiotic options.  Basically the only thing they could give me was Cleocin.

I'm finishing this post now, on Saturday evening.

Friday, despite getting a shot of antibiotics, the swelling was worse.  I did not leave my room except to head to the dentist, at which point I kept the left side of my face covered with a cold compress.

The dentist took X-rays, did a quick examination, and said I needed to see an endodontist, a root canal specialist.  So M took me over there while I got bitchy because the vicodin was wearing off.

I won't go into what Dr. N (the endodontist) did, because it's not pretty to think about, but he was all kinds of awesome and I'm really grateful to M for being there with me and rubbing my shins while he shot me up with novocaine.

Once the procedure was over, we went back to the ER, where people stared at me.

In the ER, I got blood drawn, IV antibiotics, morphine, a hospital gown, and a CT scan.  I was admitted to the hospital and spoke with the maxillo-facial-something-or-other doctor on call (Dr. A), who declared that I would need a minor operation in order to continue what Dr. N had started.  Up to the OR I went, where there was a pretty cute OR nurse who let me hold his hand after I woke up. :)

Chilled in the recovery room, then got moved to an actual room, where M joined me.

I get to see both Drs. A and N Monday, then if Dr. N thinks the swelling has gone down I will have a root canal Wednesday.

Here is a picture of me as of writing this: dailybooth.com/katzpotter/1017…

So that's what I did this week!  Hope your week was better!

I'm Avoiding Papers

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 7, 2010, 7:36 PM


Which would be why I'm updating my journal.

Look you guys!  A new CSS!

Variation of my Colts and baseball CSS's.

(If anyone can help me a) center the header image and b)do something about the width on my profile I would really appreciate it.)

SO ANYWAYS.  MUCH HAS HAPPENED.

I dedicated an entire week of my Tumblr to Roy Mustang.  Oh yes.

We figured out why I was so depressed and suicidal!  It was the clonazepam.  I'm much better now.

I'm crazy active on my Tumblr, so if you ever need something, don't hesitate to drop a message in my ask box.

I'm completely rewriting my crackfic!  It's better, stronger, faster, and less Mary Sue with even more fandoms!

I've been doing okay school-wise.  Midterms are coming up, which I am less than excited about, but on Wednesday I get to go home and see my kitty. :heart:

If I get a chance over break, I will take pictures of the results of figure drawing class and post them.

Also upcoming: Drawings of crackfic characters, anime characters, and FMA plushie keychains!  Thinking about making some Soul Eater keychains, too.

Want to know what I've been knitting?  Look over to your left, there's a link to my knitting tumblr!

Joined the anime club.  Also people on tumblr got me addicted to Soul Eater and Durarara!!.  I have this spiffy 101 Classics app for my iPod Touch so I can read in bed before I sleep without disturbing the roomie.  I've worked my way through Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, and Mansfield Park, and now I'm taking a break from Austen and reading A Study In Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Am I using Robert Downey Jr. as my mental Sherlock Holmes?

You betcha. ;)

So the Cardinals did not get to the postseason, and though I'm glad Scott Rolen got to the postseason, I was even gladder to hear that Roy Hallady and the Phillies shut the Reds out yesterday.  Yes, I am absolutely still grumpy about the "little bitches" and subsequent brawl that ended our backup catcher's career and messed up Carpenter's mojo.  Jose Cueto fights like a girl.  A whiny little girl.  I wish LaRue would press charges, but that's unlikely.

And the Colts are... eh.  Not quite the Colts we had last season.

SO THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON.  I'm going to go write this paper now.  Ugh.

I apologise for my inactivity lately...

I am all moved in at Missouri State University and classes are going well so far...

However, I'm an emotional wreck.  I don't really feel like going into it; suffice to say I'm lonely, homesick, depressed, and feeling like I don't fit in anywhere.

Hopefully as the semester goes on I'll get more acclimated, but right now every night I just want to curl up in my bed and cry and hope I don't wake up the next morning.

I don't really like interacting with people when I'm like this, so I've been avoiding dAmn and any obligations to... well, everyone.

So yeah.  Uberdepressed.  Feeling lonely, rejected.

Y'all, I AM DISAPPOINT.

There were like seven Edward Elrics at AnimeStL (aka ASTL), including a Loli!Girl!Ed, but not ONCE did I see someone in military uniform.  I TELL YOU I AM DISAPPOINT.

However there was a Sailor Moon and a Goku and some Saiyan (sp?) chicks!  And you know, a crapton of Ls and other Death Note characters.

AND SO I am going to make my Miniskirt Army cosplay before Natsucon!  YUS. [determinedface]

...Right after I finish all this knitting.

I am like a knitting FIEND.  Fear my needles!

(Also Draco now officially knits in my crackfic.  Muahaha.)

Find me on Ravelry, you guys!  I'm "katzpotter."  Make sure you tell me you're from DevArt though, 'kay? :D

Anyways I sort of went FMA-crazy at the con and bought a Riza phonecharm, a big ol' FMA poster, a Roy button, and then afterward I sort of um... splurged on a Roy messenger bag.

...yeah.

ALSO WE HAD A TORNADO.

ACTUALLY MAKE THAT TWO.  I just checked the NWS office's site and we had two z0mg y'all.  www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=04_24_…

IT'S NOT THAT I DON'T LIKE YOU (OC MEME)

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 1, 2010, 12:13 PM


IF YOU LOVE ME (OR EMILY AND HUGHES) YOU WILL GIVE ME LLAMAS.

Dude, being 21... feels the same as 20, lol.

P.S. I wish I had a GaGa avatar.

Annnywayyyyys I borrowed this from :iconsilver-eyes-blue: because after I saw it Em and Hughes demanded to do it.

Rules for the OC Quiz:
1) Choose 1 OC to do this tag with. (Do it again if you wish to do more) --> Okay, I am doing 2, shoot me. XD
2) Your OC must answer every question as truthfully as possible.
3) Call this: : "OC's"(...fill in OC's name) Quiz.
4) When you're done, tag as many people as you like.
5) Have Fun!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


1)What is your real name and nickname?
E: My full name is Emily Noelle Malfoy. People call me Em, Emmy, or Emily.  Papa calls me his little Spitfire, and Hughes likes to call me Sugarbritches... or LeeLee.
H: I'm Hughes Roy Mustang, and uh, Em calls me Sparky.  Or Sparkyboy.

2)Interesting. What is your current age?
E: I'm eighteen.
H: I turn 22 in May.

3)What's your favourite food?
E: Mm, strawberries.
H: Emily makes a mean devil's food cake. But oh man, Gracia Hughes's apple pie...

4)And your favourite drink?
E: Tea.
H: Scotch.  I mean, er, water's good too?

5)Confession time!! Who's your crush/lover?
E: Alex.
H: WHAT.  I thought you loved me!
E: Ahahaha April Fool's!  It's you, silly.
H: *pouts*

6)Awww! Have you two kissed yet?
E: Er, yeah.
H: I kiss her every chance I get, which is unfortunately not nearly often enough.
E: Needy git.
H: I just love you so much!
E: Shove off.

7)What's your favourite colour?
E: Pink!
H: Purple.  Dad says I'm way too much like the man I'm named after, Maes Hughes.

8)What is your biggest fear?
E: Rejection, losing my family.
H: To lose my family.

9)Do you have any siblings?
E: Yes.  My brother Scorpius and the twins, Audrey and Cassidy.
H: My brother Alex and sister Maria.

10)Who is your hero?
E: Grampa Sev, and Mama.
H: I dunno?  Mom and Dad are pretty awesome, and so's my Aunt Kit.

11)Who is your worst enemy?
E: I don't really have enemies, I don't think?  Maybe Flint and Goyle.
H: I don't have enemies either, except, y'know, homunculi.  And I'm pretty sure Olivia Armstrong doesn't like me much.

12)What would you do if your hero and worst enemy got together?
E: It would never happen.
H: I'd probably set his hair on fire.  That would snap Dad out of whatever funk he's in.

13)What would you do if you met your creator?
E: Thank her for making me so darned awesome.
H: *rolls eyes*  You aren't that awesome.
E: Shut up, Hughes.

15)What is your worst nightmare?
E: *blushes* Er... Hughes... dying....
H: Awww! *kisses her* You're so cute when you blush.  Uh, mine would be Em getting hurt, or dying, or... you know.

16)What is your lifelong dream?
E: To be awesome.  And have a loving family.
H: I dunno, I guess to have a family like the one I have.  Being Fuhrer isn't as important as I used to think it was.

17)What would you do if your lifelong dream came true?
E: Be happy?
H: I think I'd be content with my life.

18)Where is your favourite place to relax?
E: In the garden, or the library.
H: If I said it's wherever you are, would you smack me for being sappy and cliche?
E: Probably.

19)What do you spend most of your time doing?
E: Right now, studying for NEWTs.
H: I should be doing college stuff too, but... Dad's making me take care of Kit.

20)Done! Tag whoever you want!
E: Finally.  I do have a life you know.
H: *rolls eyes* Yeah, with your schoolbooks.  Sometimes I think you like them more than you like me.
E: Sometimes I do.
H: *looks wounded*
E: *sigh* Come on, you can help me study.

Kiriban Approaching + RANDOM

Just like the title says, my kiriban is approaching in less that 800 pageviews!

20k darlings!

Whoever catches it and notes me the screenshot first will get a plushie!

IN OTHER NEWS, we have six cats now.

One is named Molly, but we call her MollyWobbles.  LolHPnerdfun.

ALSO EVAN LYSACEK IS FULL OF WINZ0RZ.  And his legs, rowr.

Anyways, uh... not much art going on, I mean... yeah I'm doing stuff for school but nothing I'd put on here.  Still working on lineart for those sketches in my scraps though.

I have a formspring!  Ask questions!  Please!  I get bored! www.formspring.me/KatzPotter

Alsoalso, my brain goes funny places at night.  Like Draco, knitting.

SO I PROPOSE A THINGY.  YOU DRAW ME DRACO KNITTING, AND I MAKE YOU A PLUSHIE OR ART OR SOMETHING.  If I get a bunch of people drawing me Draco knitting (I doubt this will happen) then I will draw a name out of my awesome hat of awesome.

THEN AGAIN MY TWENTY-FIRST (DO YOU HEAR ME I WILL BE TWENTY-ONE) IS COMING UP IN 27 DAYS (March 20) AND Y'ALL KNOW YOU WANNA DRAW ME GIFT ART, RIGHT?  RIIIIIIGHT?

So, y'know, you can draw me Draco, Draco knitting, OR you can draw me Emily and Hughes.

Who are Emily and Hughes, you ask?

I'm so glad you did!

Emily And Hughes 1----------Christmas 2014, "Penny For Your Thoughts"--------
"Penny for your thoughts?"
"We haven't got pennies, Hughes," Emily told him, looking up from Hogwarts, A History.  "We have Knuts."
"Well, wait… you mean…"  He stared at her, an odd expression on his face.
"Oh get your mind out of the gutter!  Kay-ehn-you-tee," she spelled.  "Knut.  The 'k' is silent.  Like 'know,' y'know?  Honestly."  She turned back to her book.  "I was thinking Mama and Papa should stop arguing so much.  They're making the twins cry."
"What are they arguing about now?"  He sat down, his dark blue eyes on her.
'Me,' she thought, but didn't want to say so.  "Mama wants to go teach at Hogwarts, but Papa doesn't want her to.  She says the old Potions professor didn't know what he was doing, that the kids are doing really badly.  She says some
  EDUMACATE YOURSELF, BBS.

ALSO LOOK GIFT ART OF EM AND HUGHES.
Emily n Hughes for katzypotter by ladysugarquill

SO GO, GO, GO.

Also here is an example of how very special my brain gets.  Follow up to Draco knitting was Hughes knitting.

Em: *comes home to find Hughes and Cass on the couch* Hey Cass, what're you doing here?
Cass: What, I can't spend quality time with my brother-in-law?
Em: *stink-eye*
Hughes: All right, all right!  She was teaching me.
Em: Teaching you /what/, exactly?
*Hughes and Cass exchange glances*
Hughes: Er... to knit.
Em: I beg your pardon?
Hughes: To knit. *brings out very very pathetic looking scarf*
Em: Bwahahahaha. *laughsnort*
Cass: You know, the snorting is really very unattractive.
Em: Knitting!  Bahahahahaha! * snort, cough, choke, roffles*
Em: I'm out working my butt off for Captain FlirtIsMyMiddleName Harkness, and you're here at home KNITTING? :lol: That is the lamest thing I have ever heard.
Hughes: *pout*
Em: Why don't you come to work with me for a day, you can *snort* teach the Weevils how to *snort* knit.


IN CONCLUSION: Random journal written at 4:15am is random and sliiiightly crazy.

P.S. Extra points for Draco knitting naked.

I'm sitting in the caf at school.  I've got 20 minutes before I need to head off to my next class, so I thought I'd give y'all an update.

DevArtwise:

Both stlouisdeviants and :dAmnHomework: are now groups, so join if either piques your interest!  I've been meaning to work on those sketches I uploaded but I am sort of horrible at tracing lines on the computer.  If you have tips, please share them. :)

Onlinewise:

I have a Tumblr!  The link's over there on the left.

I also have a FormSpring, so if you ever wanted to ask me something but were afraid to, now you can! :dummy:  FORMSPRING.ME!

I will also be live-tweeting the SuperBowl.

Ficwise:

Kind of on hold due to school; trying to come up with some more ideas for the kids' school years.  Etlu-Yume currently have a plot in the works, but I'm hoping to get some more characterization for the kids in before that.

Uhm, I dunno if any of you watchers know who Emily and Hughes are, but they've sort of... taken over my head.  I never know what will trigger them; last night it was a song (it usually is music) and then they keep me up writing them.

I swear I'm not crazy.

Meet Em and Hughes!  New bits added whenever they start talking in my head! Emily And Hughes 1----------Christmas 2014, "Penny For Your Thoughts"--------

"We haven't got pennies, Hughes," Emily told him, looking up from Hogwarts, A History.  "We have Knuts."
"Well, wait… you mean…"  He stared at her, an odd expression on his face.
"Oh get your mind out of the gutter!  Kay-ehn-you-tee," she spelled.  "Knut.  The 'k' is silent.  Like 'know,' y'know?  Honestly."  She turned back to her book.  "I was thinking Mama and Papa should stop arguing so much.  They're making the twins cry."
"What are they arguing about now?"  He sat down, his dark blue eyes on her.
'Me,' she thought, but didn't want to say so.  "Mama wants to go teach at Hogwarts, but Papa doesn't want her to.  She says the old Potions professor didn't know what he was doing, that the kids are doing really badly.  She says some


Schoolwise:

So far so good! *knocks on wood*

Lifewise:

Dad is going to Indianapolis for the SuperBowl and he is not taking me. :|

Life is slowly mending.  I still get depressed about Muffin, but the addition of a new little furball has helped.

Yup, we got another kitten.  Her name is Molly and she's a dilute tortie with a broad face and crazysoft fur.  She's playful, talkative, and is loving all the attention we give her.  We got her from the Humane Society, who were (and always have been) awesome to us.  They're the ones that helped out with Muffin.

So yeah, that's it for right now.

GO COLTS!!!!

School started up on Tuesday.  I think it'll be interesting.

Mondays and Wednesdays I have Design II in the morning and Computer Art Studio in the afternoon.

Tuesdays and Thursdays I have Human Growth and Development in the morning and Biology I in the afternoon, with a lab on Tuesdays.

---------------

Sorry I didn't warn y'all that I'd be uploading a bunch of stuff, but, uh, I didn't know that I was going to until I started doing it.  >.>;

If you watch my scraps you'll probably notice that I uploaded a bunch of bad-quality pictures of a little black kitten.

Normally I wouldn't treat my scrapbook like a facebook photo album, but I have a reason.

If you chat with me on dAmn you might have noticed that I've been really down since Friday.  I might have told you why.

For those of you who don't know...

Last Friday, January 15, 2010, to top off an already-bad week, that little kitten, five-month-old Muffin, died.

Here's how it went down.

Around the beginning of the year, Muffin started to get bloated.  At first we weren't overly concerned, but when it did not go away by the 6th, and in fact got worse, I took her in to the vet.

They thought it might be an infection, or perhaps an allergic reaction, and sent us home with amoxicillin (for pets), orders to get children's benadryl, and instructions to call if it got worse or go to the emergency clinic.

Muffin was in pain, and did not appreciate the cherry-flavoured benadryl.  We gave up on that pretty fast, especially since she totally freaked and went all foamy.  We had better luck with the amoxicillin.  Half a milliliter, twice a day, and though we had to hold her down, she took it.

And she seemed to be getting better, for a couple days.

Then it was back to the bloat.  We'd just had her spayed at the end of November, so there was no way she was pregnant.

Thursday I called the vet.  He said I should probably bring her in, so I made an appointment for nine-thirty the next day.

The vet poked and prodded.  Muffin was feeling better than she had the previous Wednesday; she got up and walked around.  The vet consulted with one of the other vets, then took the kitten back to draw some fluid.

When she came back, the world collapsed.

It was FIP, or feline infectious peritonitus.  It's fatal, because there's no cure.  Here's the Wiki article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_i… .  Basically, the organs shut down and the cat stops eating and... well, you can figure it out.

I called my mother at work.  She talked to the vet, and made the decision.  Muffin was her cat, after all.  Taking her home would make it worse when the time finally came, and she'd already stopped eating as much and was losing weight.  She'd always been kind of scrawny.

We were both crying.  As the vet talked to Mom, I sat on the floor and Muffin crawled into my lap.

I spoke with the vet tech and the lady at the front desk, making arrangements.

And I stayed with her to the end.

She was purring.

So.

Rest in peace, Muffin.  You were - and still are - very, very loved.

Life

So Jason and I broke up.  It was pretty mutual, I'd been planning on breaking up with him but he got to it first.  What really irks me is that he did it via text.

I've recently become obsessed with A Very Potter Musical.  If you don't know what that is, go and educate yourself immediately.  Short and simple, it's a Harry Potter parody in the form of a musical. GO HERE: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmwM_A…

School starts for me on Monday, and we're taking my sister and her stuff down to southwest Missouri later today.

I've been having crazy dreams still, just haven't written them down.  One I can think of could be made into a really cracky scifi movie.  It had to do with fuses, rocket ships, explosions, strange baby aliens, a corrupted scientist, sparkles (no really), and yeah.

Recently finished The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan.  It was pretty good.  Zombies.

Also, HBP = WIN.

On to the Feature Meme!

Feature Meme

This is a really nice and simple meme. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art and cosplay around for everyone!

RULES AND SUCH:
1) Be one of the first 18 people to comment on this journal entry (and to say you want to be featured), and I will add you to the Featured List!

2) For each of the 18 first people answering this journal, I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list, along with a reason why I like them. (Or no reason, because I am lazy.)

3) If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place, completing the list with 17 other people.
