17 September 2011


Some of you lovely folks may be wondering, "Connie, what in the world are you talking about?" Let me explain.
According to what I remember, the old footballs (the one you throw around, not the one you kick) were made of a skin from a pig--hence, the "pigskin" part.

Oh look! A picture of a football! (this isn't my pic, btw)
There is an event at our school, near the beginning of the school year, in which all the clubs and sports teams and classes (freshmen/soph/jr/sr etc) can set up booths and sell stuff (like cookies and lanyards and t-shirts and COTTON CANDY, etc) as a fundraiser in a bazaar-esque setting.
"But Connie," you may be asking. "What does any of this have to do with the story you mentioned a few lines ago?" Ah, yes. That lovely story from a few lines back. Well, you see, there is a football game going on at the same time as the bazaar. Put 2 and 2 together, and you have the Pigskin event, simultaneously referring to the actual game and the bazaar at the same time.
But mostly to the latter. The game pretty much a bonus.
Confusing? Hope not. I'd hate to have to retype that entire thing all over again.
My school had our pigskin last Friday (September 16). I volunteered to help out for my school's Art Club (proud member since 'o9...booyah), and thus spent a whopping 11 hours at school yesterday.
Why 11? I ended up staying after school to help set up (the event started at 5 pm).
Anyways, back to my story. The Art Club was offering caricatures and cotton candy at the Pigskin (why yes, I did eat a lot of cc. How did you know?) and I volunteered to draw caricatures. We were allowed to draw in whatever style we wanted, and we were only required to bring in one example artwork:
My friend/model is a big fan of Harry Potter, hence the wand and seafoam green magic thing.
And that's what my Friday was like. I'm now dead tired because I also had to get up early today (on a Saturday, too!) for a SAT prep class (October test! So nervous/ready to get this over with!). I got home about three hours ago, and am ready to collapse. Decided to type this up before I completely zonked out.
So how was everyone else's day?

Wishing she had a robot to do her homework for her,

PS--What do you think of this layout? Do you prefer having pictures between chunks of words, or having them all mashed up into one pile like the previous posts?

Oh, Oh, Oh! I Should Probably Say Hello!

I probably really should do that...my first two posts weren't very introduction-y, haha.
Hello! I'm Connie! There's no real use hiding my name, seeing as it's on my dA account (as previously noted). I am 16 (going on 17, baby, it's time to think~...*cough*) and am currently living the absolutely joyful junior year high school life. *coughsarcasmcough*
Which means I'm pretty much going to be like this: 
the rest of the year. Huzzah!
...Is the font I'm using too small? Please say so if it is. I'll make it bigger. I just like smaller font. And small things in general.
As you can probably tell, I love drawing. And taking pictures. Between drawing and photography, my love is split 70-30, respectively. I just love drawing so much~! <3
I also fairly fond of plushies/stuffed animals in general. I have a fairly small collection, so I hope to expand my collection a bit more this year. :D

Um...some more things I love:
Harry Potter. How can you not love the books?
Just the books, though. Haven't seen the movie.

A writing event.

deviantArt is my life.

I sleep way too much. XD

Pfft, I do this too often as well.
I love balloons. I love this picture. :)

Um, yeah. I think that's enough about me for now.
See you next post! :)

And yes, I did reuse my sleeping picture. I was too lazy to draw another one. :D

Hello Second Post! So Nice To See You

...I know I said I was going to write more about myself today. But I got sidetracked by deviantArt and homework. I apologize, and will do it as soon as possible.
Seeing as I'm running on 4 hours of sleep, I could probably do with a little nap right now. And I'm not exactly sane at the moment.
...Why can't homework do itself? Friggin' homework. Especially essay outlines. I don't want to do homework right now. I want to SLEEP. Sleep is almost like a luxury or something.
But I can't sleep right now. Cause I have a APUSH test tomorrow, and I don't want to screw up my first test of the year for that class. So I need to finish studying for that too.
...Or I could ignore my study-feelings and sleep after I finish doing this.
I should probably stop getting distracted during the day, and do all my fooling around at night.
...That sounded awkward. IGNORE ME.
Would love to catch some Z's...
About to fall asleep on my English textbook,

Hey There, Stranger

Hello there, random bystander who just chanced upon my blog.
My name is Connie. Really no point in hiding it, since it's displayed on my dA account anyways.
I am an artist. As can be seen by my picture ID thingy (I drew that! Feel proud of me!).

I also drew/photographed/whatever'd the rest of the stuff on my dA account. Like:

Look up the music video for the song listed on the left.
Yay for crappy anatomy!
"Essence of People"
"Wishing for Freedom"

"The Long Road Ahead"
"Abandoned Egg"

The photographs are part of my (abandoned) 365 Day Photo Project for 2011. I'll do better on next year's goal. Promise! (I gave up on day 204) >_<;;
Um. I really don't know what else I'm supposed to say here. The main reason this blog came into existence is because of the fact that my parents blocked tumblr. So instead of posting my crappy work on tumblr, I'll be spamming you people here instead. Hurray!
....I'll go to bed now. Writing at 2:43 am is probably not a very good idea. Will *possibly* write a better introduction for myself tomorrow.

*EDIT: Please don't use the pictures/drawings without permission. I don't usually have a problem with people stealing my works, but it's better to be safe than sorry, after all.
