FMAObsessed, jacksparrow, Pierrot- Thanks for the advice. happy.gif I think we'll definitely try our best to stay in contact with each other. It's something everyone goes through, so I think we'll manage. But growing up is weird... XD;;;

jacksparrow- Ah, that's not good. ohmy.gif I hope your student ID situation gets fixed soon.

CTs:

- I have not been on in a while. Life is busy. >.<

- This week I'm visiting the college I'm going to! Woot!

- I lost a bet, and had to change my facebook name to something stupid. laugh.gif

- The MoMA trip was a lot of fun! I accidentally stepped on art (in my defense, my art teacher also accidentally stepped on it; apparently this piece was so "modern" that no one could even tell it was "art"). But y'know, besides the random stuff, there were a lot of famous works in there. 'Starry Night' was awesome to see, if only I could see past the people crowding around it to take pics. Seriously, they act as if there are no images of this thing on the Internet. I should have just stood in front of the painting, annoying everyone because I was appreciating the fact that I'm in front of Starry freakin' Night. And all of the famous paintings were crowded like that. Most annoying thing in the world, but kind of funny.

- I used to be able to stay awake until 5AM, now I struggle to stay awake past 2AM. I'm just so tired all the time.

@A Pierrot's Aria: I didn't, but I'm trying. I hope I can get a decent rest tonight. And I hope your back feels better!

@jacksparrow589: I hope your stundent ID problem is fixed soon! D:

CTs:

- Something keeps hitting the window behind me. I think it's a bug or something...

- Bleh. I really haven't been able to sleep properly. But I now have a new pillow, so I'm hoping that might help a bit. The old one was flat and lumpy... :<

I got 11 hours of sleep last night. I haven't felt this well rested in such a long time.

I went to a bridal shower today. It was my first bridal shower and it was so much fun.

The nose piece of my glasses fell off. It just completely fell off. I tried to fix it by screwing it back in, but the screw and the screw piece thing is completely gone.

My laptop is also physically breaking. It doesn't have a virus. Which is rare for this computer. Instead when I open it, I noticed that the part that opens my computer is cracked. I think my laptop may break in two.

@jacksparrow589 I hope the problem with your student ID has been resolved! hug.gif

@Razzy I hope you like the look of the college you're visiting!

@Pyroclasm It's a shame you're still not sleeping well. I hope you manage to get a decent sleep this time!

@FMAobsessed Wow...I could really go for 11 hours of sleep! laugh.gif

CTs:

-I saw my little 10 year old cousin on Saturday for the first time in quite a few months. We were sat in the pub at the time and the DJ had come in and she asked him to put Bruno Mars on. I was like "Who the heck is Bruno Mars!?" and she's like "YOU DON'T KNOW WHO BRUNO MARS IS!? Haven't you heard that song *sings a bit of the song*" And I was just like "I've never heard that song in my life..." wacko.gif I'm really not down with modern music! laugh.gif I prefer 70s/80s and 90s. (Some earlier stuff as well. xD)

-Our building still hasn't got the census form...When we finally do, I'm thinking of just doing it online...

-I have the weird feeling in my chest and throat that I get when I have a cold brewing...!

A Pierrot's Aria, Pyroclasm, and Razzy--My ID works now! (Don't know how, but the point is, it works!) Thanks! smile.gif

CTs:

--First day of spring quarter was pretty cool. Two of my three instructors are pretty enthusiastic, and the workload seems reasonable for all.

--Started reading the Millenium trilogy (Stieg Larsson)--my grandma wants my take on it.

--I tried to get pictures of the cherry trees on campus yesterday, but it just started raining at one point. I got some okay photos, though.

- mad.gif they ejected Todd Bertuzzi from the hockey game @*#$&(@)@!!! Not even 4 minutes into the game, and he's out... all over a slightly high elbow on a cross check... frick on a stick....

- I'm watching hockey right now if you haven't grasped that XD

- I'm making chicken tonight stuffed with ham chunks and swiss cheese chucks... yummo....

- Wahoooo!!! Lindstrom shot a goal off the post!!! tongue.gif

- Okay I"m done now XD

@jacksparrow589 I'm glad your ID is working now!

-Just completed my census --our building only just got it in the post today. ohmy.gif

-Next week is our last week before the Easter Holidays, and we're beginning to go through the module picking process for next year. I'm quite conflicted over what I want to "specialise" in. In history, I'm stuck between medieval history or early modern history (or maybe something different like international history), and in philosophy I'm stuck between ethical philosophy or political philosophy (or try a completely new area of philosophy). I know I'd definitely like to carry on with Latin, though. smile.gif

-I can't wait until next week - my FMA:B part 4 DVD and Hero Tales parts 1 and 2 will be despatched. In good time, too, since the Easter Holidays start on the 8th April! I sense some marathons ahead. tongue.gif

- So there was this story on the news about these co-workers who won the lottery. There were a few other co-workers who would regularly participate when they played, but just didn't this time. And the winners didn't split the money with those few who didn't play this one time. For whatever reason, that makes me so angry. I mean, I can see if it's like those co-workers just played only occasionally... but it's like if these other few co-workers always played, and didn't play this one time, they should still get a share. You don't even have to split it evenly; at least give them something. After taxes, those winners got almost 20 million each; they can afford to share with a few others. Honestly, how greedy can you be? [/random rant]

- Anyway. I got some money from my college! It's not a lot, since state schools can only give out a certain amount of money. But, still! I am so, so, so happy~!!! biggrin.gif

- My road test is tomorrow (before leaving to go college-visiting). I'm kind of nervous. >___<

-Just started teaching myself Polish on a whim. Aaah, Polish is hard. Right now I'm just trying to learn how to pronounce the letters, but even that's kind of hard. The letters for the most part look like the ones in the English alphabet, but some of them are pronounced completely different. For example, the letter c is pronounced ts. :< This might take a while for me to learn.

-...I should probably be doing my homework instead of going on here or facebook or learning Polish. :\

- My parents act like it's unusual to fail a first road test. I failed mine, and they're like, "You suck, and you need a driving teacher". And they're seriously getting me a driving teacher. Okay, I failed for driving through a yellow light. And everything else the driving instructor wrote down was a lie. I've heard that this particular driving instructor is known for failing people all the time. She wrote that I never turned my head while backing up. But I did, and I tried to make it obvious, too. I guess she wasn't looking, or she's just lying because she's a terrible person like that. Now my mom is angry at me for failing (even though she said before the test "It's okay if you fail. Almost everyone fails their first road test"). This is ridiculous. Why can't I fail? My parents both failed their first road tests.

- I was hoping that I would get a splitting headache and fever this morning so I wouldn't be forced to go to school today, but it seems that this bug (whatever it is) is working very slowly.

I hope you realize that most of the things you've listed to avoid are crucial to any profession.

When it comes to the true-blue anime industry, it's near exclusive to the Japanese. If you can't draw, there goes being on the art team. If you don't want it to be business related, you probably should avoid marketing and the like. The only other option available would be voice acting if you have experience with it, and even then most voice actors/seiyuu will tell you it can't be your main job, you need something else to get by. If you have a splendid talent for music, I guess you could pursue doing music scores for anime.

It's the truth, sadly. Anime is a very artistic profession, unless you go into the business part of it. Even then, you may have to design logos and websites and such.

Sorry to say, but unless you can do any of the above, leave the anime to the Japanese. Sorry to crush your dreams, but ya know...

Wow, what a way for me to come back to the board: Crushing dreams.

Anyway, I haven't been around much, but I'll try.
This weekend starts my con hopping season. This year, I'll be at UBcon (Buffalo, NY), Toracon (Rochester, NY), Anime Boston (Boston, Massachusetts) and Anime North (Toronto, Canada).
