So mother and a family friend are going on holiday today with Ollie. I am going to be catsitting not only the two cats here [Dave and Pepper], but I'm also going to be catsitting our family friends cats. All 13 of them. This is going to be fun ^-^
I have put photos of some of them up before, but expect more now due to the fact I'm going to be living at their house for 5 days.
Anyway, on with the updates!
I've started the process of moving out of Warzone Aileen and back into Warzone Marigold. The process is slow, first car load we brought back Sprocket the Guinea Pig. He's quiet, but he's settling in. Wouldn't come out the first day but he's out and about now, even did a little squeaking this morning. Dave keeps trying to say hi, I keep having to banish him from my room.
Process would be going quicker if I could move in my bedroom. I've only been able to unpack my clothes and Kreos because despite having enough storage, one lot is filthy and unusable due to most of it being drinks so it's very sticky, another unit I'm still waiting for the main drawer back from my sister, the one drawer unit I can get to has my clothes in and my Kreos are sitting on a CD rack. Mother has a ton of her stuff in my room which is taking up practically all of the free space. So, my Transformers are still boxed, my teddies are still in their suitcases and the rest is still at Warzone Aileen.
But at least Sprocket is settled. By the way, he loves bells. I've learnt this from having him over the months, he fucking loves bells. He used to love the bell ball and the caged one at Warzone Aileen, when I brought him back here I got him his own toy and it's all I can hear now XD He gets excited when Ollie walks in because his collar jingles.
I have recently become a bit of a target since I started watching the DASecrets page due to the fact I defended the page because people were saying it wasn't art. All I did was state my opinion as to why I think it's art.
Since then I've received 6 notes and a profile comment, although the profile conversation was a lot nicer and was resolved quite quickly. The notes, in shorter words, basically said the things below.
> You like DASecret, kill yourself.
> You're pathetic, you don't know art, I mean look at your updates.
> You must be retarded to think that shit is art.
> You suck and should kill yourself to save your generation from your idiocy.
> If you didn't want backlash you shouldn't white knight that shit profile.
> You would think it's art, your shit is at the same quality.
I'd just like to get some things clear.
1 - I don't 'white knight', I express my opinion, something I did on that day because word play is an art and that is what I think a lot of the things on DAsecret are. Art. Sure, there are people who just send in screenshots of Microsoft Word or Paint, but it's not the physical view of the thing that I find the art, it's the words and the questions they bring up. Some might be blunt and just say it, but they still bring up many questions regarding the topic.
2 - I know my work isn't good, so this point means nothing to me. I do what I want because I like to do it, not because I think I'm the next Richard Billingham.
3 - I should kill myself because I like DASecret. You should kill yourself for telling someone to kill themselves because of something they like. I have a phoenix and an army, your words mean nothing to me.
Moving swiftly on.
University is OVER! I have finished my final year, I hated my final piece but I done it to the way Minna wanted it because I was sick of her putting me down and saying 'Oh if you did it THIS WAY it would look more effective' 'Thats fine but if you done it THIS WAY it would be nicer' so I just said 'fuck it' and done it the way she told me to. I can't be bothered anymore, I just wanted the project done and over with.
"New Horizons" was a lot more enjoyable and that's saying something seeing as I didn't really try o-o Well I did try, it took AGES but the topic was something I could discuss quite easily. Well, most of it anyway. I got some of my information mixed up and turned around in it though, I only realised that after I'd finished the recording.
Instead of going to my Photography 3 exhibition, I went to the Barbican with my good friend Claire where we saw the Royal London Symphony Orchestra play music from Final Fantasy 7, 10 and 11 if I remember right. If I don't I'm sure Claire will correct me XD The tickets were paid for by Claire and they cost £50 each, plus she paid for them in January. What a dick move it would've been if I had just turned around and said I couldn't go! The 'curators' had put my work in the fucking corner behind where the bar was anyway so it wasn't like anyone really cared that it was there. If they had they would've emailed me by now, my website was in the catalog.
Oh yeah did I mention I have a website now? Here it is if you wanna see it, expect more shit to be on it.
Nothing else to really report on the homefront except my long to-do list. Basically I've been job searching but getting nothing but rejections [I'm on 247 rejections out of about 600 online applications so far] and I can't sign up for Jobseekers yet because I won't be marked down as 'graduated' until I've gotten my results / done my resits. So, I've got a long list of shit to do to keep me busy because I don't have any money, I have literally £10 to live on.
To do list;
> Black Dawn (me and Raven have permission so we're gonna write more of it on the other profile we made for it)
> Magikarp challenge (I can't afford the materials though)
> Pokemon Egglocke (Currently on hold due to my White II game being at Warzone Aileen)
> Pony painting
> Gundam making - Both of these are postponed due to me being a moron and leaving my pain and clippers at Warzone Aileen.
> Finish the Pokedex on Black 2
> Finish Syndrome - Also postponed due to the fact it's still at Warzone Aileen.
> Craft all the mines. AKA Get back on a regular schedule with The Cooked Porkchop
> Take all the photos of cats and Danboard.
Ok that's it, I can't remember what else I wanted to say so I'm gonna go until then XD Bye bye!
