Are you Ready for Some AIRPLANES?!

11 Jul

Tomorrow, my mom and I are going out to AL! The plane is departing at 7:00am from a nearby airport, then we land in Dallas around 12:00pm (Local time), have a two hour layover, and I think we get to AL around 4:00 or 5:00…I don’t remember which. It’s not the first time I’ve been on a plane, so no worries. 😛

 

Although, getting to the airport by 6:00am means I’ll have to wake up at 5:00amish… D: Not looking forward to that. But I’ll be hitting the hay probably around 9:30-10 tonight, so I should be able to catch some sleep, and then sleep on the plane as well. I’m bringing my Nook along as well, so I’ll probably make a mid-flight post or something.

 

I’m also bringing my sketchbook, so I’ll try and do some drawing too. I don’t know if I’ll be able to upload any art though…I don’t remember if the printer my Mammaw has has a scanner in it…But she does have a Mac, so maybe I can post a podcast or something.

 

What’s weird, though, is the flight we’re taking to Dallas, my mom and I aren’t sitting together! Weird. She’s in the row in front of me, but we’re both in the middle. And we both get nauseous on plane trips. 😐 (We both have some pre-flight Dramamine though, which helps. But it tastes yucky!) Either someone will offer to switch seats (…Which I’m unsure of. Ooh, give up my window seat for a middle seat?? “SIGN ME UP!” in the words of Tom Servo.) or I’ll have to stay. And maybe, I’ll be sitting next to Benedict Cumberbatch and Jeff Bridges! Or a talking cat and a wizard! Or James Bond and Rinzler! (That might be a bit scary.) Or Kermit the Frog and Spock! Or Riker and Mycroft Holmes! …Well maybe not that last one…

 

Well, I should probably go and finish packing.

 

See you later! 🙂

 

God bless,

Big Update Thing

9 Jul

It’s been a while since I posted anything, so I figured I would give you an update on life and stuff!

Cover of Shane

 

 

First off, I finished two more books! “The Andromeda Strand” and “Shane.” I’m going to try and make some podcasts about then today. Both were very good in different ways; Andromeda Strand was a Sci-Fi thriller, good but scary. Shane was a Western, and it is now one of my all-time favorite books. If you ever get the chance to read either of them, you should. Very, very good books.

 

 

Tron (film)

Also, my mom signed us up for full Netflix, and I was setting up the cue, and seeing as I wanted to see the original TRON (we just watched the sequel) I put it on the cue! And I got it.

 

 

AND I LOVED IT.

 

Seriously though, a very good movie! Sure, the effects were lame (It was the 80s!), and the score was awful (It was the 80s!), but how can you possibly get over all the very “It was the 80s!” stuff about the costuming? It was like watching a period drama! Not to mention that Tron was just super awesome. And Jeff Bridges! I LOVED him in this movie. In Legacy he was very serious, but in this one he was more of the goober that I see him being in real life. I liked that.

 

So of course I do some fan art.

 

 

 

 

 

Greetings Programs

 

And I added a couple of shirts from the movie, which I will be ordering as soon as my mom gives the okay.

 

I’ve been drawing lots of other things, but I don’t really want to spend ten minutes uploading stuff, so check out my deviantART page. Maybe I’ll post an art dump later, but not now. 😛

 

In other news, I’m leaving for Alabama on the 12th! My mom has lots of relatives out there, and we try togo every couple of years. We’re staying at my Mammaw’s house. 😉

 

I have no clue what time we’re leaving (If I could guess, sometime probably around 8:00am), but I do know that we’re arriving at 4:00pm. I know that airports have WiFi, so I’ll probably try and update during a lay-over. Do airplanes have WiFi? Let me see…I think they do. I dunno. My mom just said the airplane takes off at 7:00…And you usually have to get there at least an hours early… D:

 

But anyways, while I’m in Alabama, I’ll have easy access to the computer. We bought my Mammaw one a while ago, and she never really uses it, so I can check my accounts and I will definitely update the blog. 🙂

 

Well…That’s really about it! I’ll try and update some more and I will work on some podcasts today.

 

God bless,

School’s Out!

25 May

Finally! It took so long. But today was officially the last day. That means that summer is here! I have a somewhat busy summer planned, between taking an online course so I can take French next year, to going to Alabama to visit relatives. But, it should be fun!

I’m also planning on entering a local kids/teens film festival, and I’ve already started brainstorming for it. I’m hoping I can get a friend of mine to let me use their video camera, because the digital camera I use for book reports is okay for school things, but not bigger things. I have two ideas as of yet, one drama/sci-fi idea and one (quazi-) romantic-comedy. I have a couple of friends who I’d like to have read some lines and then cast them in. I’m very excited about it! It’ll be a great summer project.

I’m going to try and get back to posting AT LEAST once a week, hopefully more.

Well, that’s about it!

God bless,
