So I got to see the Supernatural season finale the other night, and boy was it crazy. Not quite as bad a cliffhanger as I was expecting, but then, I had some pretty insane expectations going in. :P

Bleh, so I just realized I've been missing friend posts because my comms are drowning them out on my friends list. Ah well, hopefully I'll be able to avoid that in future.

Meanwhile, I've been staying up incredibly late a bunch lately thanks to end of semester. I have to submit my semester portfolio at the end of the week, and there's still a bunch of tweaking to be done on a couple of designs. It doesn't help that last week I was told my magazine spreads looked just fine, but this week got told that actually a couple of my spreads are still pretty weak. I can try to polish them in time, but realistically I have to finish by Wednesday so I have time to actually get them printed and stuff. I also should have a couple things to pick up from the printers tomorrow, and they had sure better look good. Ugh, I seriously can't wait for this week to be over. >.

So I'm thinking I want to officially start my own blog. I know, I know, I already have a LJ, so why bother with a blog? Because I want one, that's why. Not sure yet what it'll be about, but I'll probably just make it up as I go along. I could probably talk about design stuff, WoW stuff, and whatever else I happen to find worth blogging about, pretty much.

Anyway, I have a test to finish up today along with a couple design projects, so I guess I'd better go worry about those...

So I have realized I have no idea how to imbed YouTube videos. Therefore, I'm going to attempt to do so here. It's a pretty cool song anyway, so there you go.

One of the "fun" parts of raiding with a semi-casual raiding guild (not hard-core, but definitely trying to get through content with Cho-Gall down and decent Nef attempts on the side) is when they really want you use things that might not really be that good. My resto druid, for example, has her oh-so-lovely Efflorescent, and AoE heal that heals up everyone inside it. Unfortunately, the heals are small enough that it's all but useless beyond beefing up my numbers a bit. This doesn't stop my guild from always insisting I use it and making sure people can stand in it though. I'll keep using it, but that doesn't change the fact that some (not all, but some) top resto druids out there aren't even specced into it. Oh well, maybe it'll get a little more buffed in Cata so it can start doing some serious good again.

Meanwhile, turns out my laptop can still raid after all. My first week it was overheating like crazy and barely managing 5 fps during boss fights, which basically makes decent raiding impossible. On the blind dragon fight (so I don't know all the bosses by name :P), my guild even gave me a super-special position just so I would live a little longer, lol. That weekend, my laptop's temperatures only got worse, and in desperation I got the interior of it dusted out. Suddenly it's running better, and happily giving me 20-25 fps during boss fights with fair graphic settings. So I'm feeling pretty optimistic now this laptop will at least play WoW throughout Cata. (I normally play on my imac, but being stuck downstairs with an injured knee means I have to live with my laptop for now.)

In other news, I need to work on getting a WoW-related icon before long. Maybe pick an awesome screenshot once I can get upstairs again...

I'm thinking it might be about time to start thinking about Christmas presents. Thanks to a lovely broken foot, I probably won't be able to drive myself anyway before then, so I'm pretty much stuck either letting other people in on all my presents or just ordering online. Fun times. (And is it bad that all the ideas I'm coming up with so far for my mom are pretty cheesy? I can't believe I'm actually considering a themed Snuggie. :P)

I'm pretty much stuck in one spot other than classes for a while. The plus side of that is I have more time to actually level my alt, try to beat one or more wii games (working through Fragile Dreams atm, then I'll hopefully figure out how to get Okami down here so I can finish that as well). On the down side, I'm pretty tired most of the time thanks to my lovely pain meds, having issues sleeping regularly, as well as, you know, laying around all day. Oh well, at least this won't last forever.

So school's back in session, and it's already almost time to meet with advisors to get our spring schedule approved. I'm starting to run into issues with all the classes I've already taken that didn't transfer properly, so I suspect I get to waste time taking several classes I'm really not excited about that I've already taken before. Woohoo.

Meanwhile, my guild finally got Lich King down on 25man (about time), and got Halion25 down the very next week. :D Yep, I think we're pretty much ready for Cataclysm now, since I doubt we'll be getting any more really major content between now and then. We'll keep trying to progress though, because that's pretty much what we do I guess.

Also, today I officially started my search for a nice, warm coat. I'm a few sizes bigger than I was last year, so my whole wardrobe's getting revamped (I'm actually starting to get used to my new size now that I have some nice clothes to go with it, so yay for that). Unfortunately, that means tracking down a quality coat that'll fit loosely enough for layers, be nice and warm, and still look good (and, you know, as if I'm at least attempting to be vaguely fashionable :P). I've always hated coat shopping though, so this should be interesting. Hopefully I'll pick the right coat on my first try...

So this is the set that's been sitting in my game for the past year or so that I never got around to uploading anywhere. I mostly made it because I didn't want my PTs to be quite as extreme (I know, I know...), but I still wanted to stick to the skin defaults and keep the facial structure roughly the same. I kept certain traits intact, like the high cheekbones, tiny to invisible noses (most of their noses are smaller than they look :P), and a couple other things I forget since I made them a year ago. Most of them were made with my adult alien-babies as a base, so that helped too.

Anyway, on to the good stuff!

So I'm finally getting around to hopefully uploading some of my sims finally. I might even start a legacy (though the updates would be awful thanks to WoW, school, and so on). I have my multi-pt hack made (technically made it a year ago, but eh, details and all that...) and an upload site picked out, so now I'm busy pollinating some sims to take pictures. My first test idea didn't produce enough genetic variety, so hopefully my current test will end a little more successfully because I really don't feel like changing my hack any. Oh well, back to my sims. :D

So I have no idea why I'm updating instead of working on my portfolio that's due tomorrow, but eh, my journal needs updating anyway.

In recent news, I'm currently down a computer since my Vista laptop decided to bluescreen on me and then start back up with nearly 17 free gigabytes it didn't have before. Yes, I'm serious. I still have no idea where all that space came from, but how on earth does a computer crash free up that kind of space? o.O

I've also decided recently that I can blame livejournal for a lot of things I've been more or less getting into. Phoenix Wright DS games? Check, thanks to a secret santa exchange on sim_spam. Doctor Who? Check, thanks to all the Doctor Who fans on here, and specifically a post on whatwasthatone. My current interest in British TV in general and addition of David Tennant to my list of favorite actors? Check, since that came from Doctor Who which in turn came from LJ. My new Imogen Heap music? Check again. The five Muse songs I downloaded to my MP3 player? Yep, those are thanks to a certain person on my friends list (you know who you are :P). Should I go on? Meh, probably not, no one's reading all that anyway.

So yeah, like I said, I have a portfolio to finish up. Here's hoping to a good review for this semester of graphic design. :D
