I'd been planning on posting a new entry back in May, but I got so caught up in the festivities and start-of-school things and then I recently got hit with weird stomach problems and, well, I ended up putting this off. I sadly haven't gotten any further with my project to add art to my fics. Hm, gotta work on making journal entries a habit. Anyway, life things first!

Basically, May 24 saw the third annual Promstuck of Homestuck Philippines (HSPH), but it was my first time to attend a prom. As in. I didn't go to my high school prom and I didn't go to graduation ball. I never really saw the point of it and thought it was all just really silly and a hypocritical event for the school to hold. Anyway! Promstuck was amazing and I had a lot of fun! It wasn't quite enough to completely remove the negative reaction I immediately have to the word "prom", but it's a start! Probably the greatest part was getting to meet all these amazing people and knowing that I had at least something great in common with them (namely, Homestuck). It was also awesome to see people dressed up in ~not quite~ costumes. I went as a Humanstuck Meenah! Here's a shot some kind soul took of me :)

I'm soooo excited for whatever prom HSPH comes up with next year! I even have plans for my outfit already and I pretty much managed to snag three friends to go as the Midnight Crew with me!

Now for some school related things! I went in for class today I saw that they had installed these huge lockers in our school and they were open for rent starting today. So I went ahead and rented myself one for the term. It's more of as a precaution than out of necessity, and honestly it would have been great if they had existed in the school five terms ago. Ah well, the locker slot is mine and I'm sure I can find some way to use it. Most likely I'll be leaving stuff there whenever I have to switch campuses, so I won't need to lug my books and possibly my laptop as well across three blocks of not-very-safe territory.

So far my classes have been pretty relaxed, although I can already tell which ones are going to be exceptionally stressful later on X.X

My Graphic Design 3 class is more of an advertising class and we're going to have to rebrand stuff and come up with ad campaigns. God, just typing that made me feel stressed already.

I'm not really too concerned with my front-end design class and its back-end counterpart class. I like the processes that go into designing user interfaces, even if I'm not that good with design itself. I like back-end programming even more so. I'll have to be careful still though. This kind of thinking has led me to being complacent and reckless in my work before >.>

3D Animation is still a little worrying, but I think I've gotten an all right grasp of 3DS Max after playing around within it. Still a long way to go though, we're only on our second exercise. That said, here's what we've done so far!

In our first activity we had to 3D-fy any character, so I ended up with Anpanman, a character from my childhood. The second one is to create a 3D bike using only splines in 3DS Max. Splines are basically 2D shapes represented in 3D. While Anpanman was made with 3D shapes (spheres, mostly) this bike is basically just all lines. It's not done and the above is basically a progress shot featuring the one part I spent most of my time on: the front wheel.

That's it for school stuff, really. Now - media updates!

Yeah, I need to get to work on my huge anime backlog. Well, games now! Just one that I really finished, actually.

Recent Games )

Right now I...haven't progressed with Mirai Nikki at all, and I'm still not sure what to read next. We're watching Edge of Tomorrow this week though, so there's that.

Game-wise, right now I'm playing Pokemon Black, alongside a million rom hacks on the side. Progress in Final Fantasy X has been slow, sadly.

As part of my efforts to change my life around, I've started keeping a Tiddlyspace notebook to keep me organized in my fannish/web based pursuits. You see, I recently realized that I had somehow made my life revolve around fandom and roleplay, and...I really don't like that. So I've also decided to start journaling again and posting more than a few words about the things I do here on this DW.

So, personal updates first. Like I said recently, I've just entered my third year of college. In fact, yesterday was the first day. It was really quite stressful, as I had exactly one class in another campus squished between two classes in another (and my usual) campus. And the other campus happens to be an entire block away. So all my Mondays for this term will be like this.

I'm a bit worried about my 3D Animation class though. I'm required to use a specific software that has no OSX version, so I'll have to bust out the Vbox again. Worst still is that my school doesn't provide copies of required software for a student discount while simultaneously looking down on and discouraging piracy. Well, what do they expect their students to do in a situation like that?

In other news, I picked up a really neat organizer with so many pockets while in Hong Kong. So far it's served me well and I look forward to making lots of good use of it.

Promstuck is this Saturday and needless to say I am super --EXCIT--ED! I'll be going as Meenah, in a suit and hot pink shades, while my date will be going as Feferi. Well, hopefully she can attend, her parents have so far been utter bullshit about this.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders airs every Friday, but I only grab new episodes come Friday and my god I'm infinitely in a state of HYPE TRAIN for this series. I ended up joining the Jojo fandom last year after watching the anime of Part 1 and Part 2, then I read the entire manga up to Part 7. I still have to read Part 8, but I'm looking to start soon.

Now for some media updates!

Recent Books )

Movies next. Uh. This is a big-ish list so I'm just going to put all the posters together and go through each one quickly.

Recent Movies )

Now for anime!

Recent Anime )

And video games! I recently got myself a 3DS and oh man it has been awesome.

Recent Games )

Right now I'm watching Mirai Nikki and playing Pokemon Black. I'm not sure yet what book to read next. Probably Champion, to round off the Legend Trilogy.

That said, I don't think my next post like this will have this many movies in it. Probably just one or two, like X-men Days of Future Past. Which is coming out tomorrow. Gods, I'm so excited for that I don't know what to think.
