New Mouse Tryouts

So I just received my brand new spanking Lord of the Rings mouse (it's in the form of a ring, nothing to do with the movie) and of course I shredded that packaging and tried it out. I was thinking that maybe it would be easier to draw with this kind of mouse than with a regular one. Is it? You be the judge.

The what and... huh?

So that's the... yeah

Hmm... so not exactly the drawing quality I was expecting, but maybe it just requires a little practice to get used to. I'll try having a real art session with this when I have the time. For regular browsing however, my first impression is that it's hard to navigate with. Especially when you click links and buttons it's easy to lose focus since you're not really holding the mouse in position. It actually seems easier to just hold the ring mouse instead of applying it a finger. Will practice make perfect? I'll keep you posted.

Week 8 - Still Got A Chill

I wrote this on Sunday. I'm only posting it now. Yes, I even wrote that I'm posting it now, on Sunday, when I wrote this. That's the way I write some times: ahead of my time. ;)

I wrote this but didn't post it because it was technically early Monday morning, late Sunday night, and the computer was finally powered down after a day's hard work. More like a night's hard work. The day actually consisted mostly of tasks such as trying to attain all medals on this game (no luck), attain medals on other games (luck - or a skill/luck combo) and taking a short walk. It wasn't the most amazing Sunday ever, and I'm still partially pestered by that cold that struck me last Monday. It's been pestering me the whole week, and is also the reason I haven't really been minding studies as I should have, so they piled up again and I'm up past midnight handing stuff in, again. Fortunately there's been some trouble with the university server during the day so they extended the deadline a bit past twelve, meaning I won't miss it. I had another course I should've handed in another assignment for, but instead of doing that I've been doing other things, like socializing with people around the globe AKA procrastinating.

As you probably get from the tone of this post, I'm not in my happiest of moods right now, but that doesn't matter. Today is a day when I wake up. Assuming I fall asleep. You know, just a simple cold can really mess with routine and plan and everything. But it puts things in perspective, and the week hasn't been all bad. I teamed up with another NG user and made this, which won a portal award yesterday! My first one! :) So cheer up, me, ok? It's only February and the whole year's ahead of you (me)! Now I'm (you) going to... do something useful? When I post this, I'm going to be happy again. It's a new day after all! Here's last week.

Oh btw, I am happy again <--- written right now, a head of my time. Also the post title's in cypher, figure it out.

Stuff like this boosts my ego. :)

Week 7 - The Cold War

Valentine passed quickly. I baked a meringue cake, drew a card, wrote a verse and bought some stuff. Mom baked another cake, made some pie and then she retired to sleep the rest of the day while guests arrived and everyone had a good time. She's been fighting a cold recently. So have I, though before today it seemed like I wouldn't be actually getting it after all. It presented itself as a wave of fatigue and an itch in the back of my throat and that's the way it's been the past week. That is, until I was stupid enough to get up at 5:30 yesterday and stay by the computer till midnight.

Needless to say I woke up feeling a bit snotty today, but that was inescapable, I had some studies that needed doing and feeling tired and whatnot I didn't get that much done until the very last day before deadline. Otherwise? More studies, and some NG. I made a game for Valentine's Day too, a simple gadget in which you click hearts and make patterns. You can also check out some of the patterns you can make with the game on this page. That, and much more, the variations are endless! If you make any yourself feel free to send them in and I'll add them.

So that was this week. I mean last week, cause I was supposed to post this yesterday but time ran out. What's happening this week? I don't know, I'll probably lie dormant a while gaining energy, and spend the rest of the days as previous weeks. Sites, studies and NG. Nothing really interesting. Here's last week.

Pancake Day

Dangit, yesterday was pancake day, and I missed it! Here's an incredibly rushed artwork for the grand event that passed. Hope you had a good one.


The Fog

I walked out into a blinding white. The fog was layered, fumes of molten snow rising into the thin winter air. I took a walk in a world without borders, where crossing the street to reach the closed down golf course I usually take my morning walk on seemed as big an adventure as when I was small.

The world looks strange when smothered by fog. It's a strange freedom, but at the same it's a ghost town, walking up the mountain towards Silent Hill, where the silence is so serene that it wouldn't be a surprise of a nightmare lurked around the next corner. But there are no corners on this golf club. It's one big flat sandbox with the frozen ocean reaching out into an unseen border between the sky and what might be the other side of the gap.

More than once I lost my balance, trudging in tractor tracks on a bland landscape where there were no paths or bunkers or greens or fences, just white in sight. It took a long time to get somewhere, but when I did I went back, and now I'm writing this, filled with inspiration.
