Trying to Paint, Pokemon Tumblers and Crocheting..?

Tomorrow is the surprise graduation party we’re throwing for Zahra so basically today was the last day for me to finish up the present I thought up for her. I decided to try my hand at something homemade since I just haven’t in a long time, and plus I want to give it to her tomorrow and even realizing this a week ago, any etsy order would not arrive on time. Anyhoo, this painting was inspired by this (which is being sold on etsy here if anyone’s interested):

Harry Potter The Marauders Watercolor Art Poster Print - Wall Decor - Watercolor Painting - Home Decor  - Kids Decor - Nursery Decor

It’s the four marauders!! I thought it looked super cool and tumblr-esque cuz of how galaxy ish it is too. I took this picture and tried to recreate it, but when I cut out Peter Pettigrew, the paper I used was too thin and didn’t block out the paint 😦 It was also the thickest cardstock I had on me, so I sort of gave up on that and tweaked the design to work for me. It’s not as good and clean as this one, but I do think it’s kinda cool in it’s own way. I hope she likes it :3 It was fun arting for two hours making it ❤

 

So earlier today, I went with Asma and Hadia to buy food for the bash as well as supplies for this project like a picture frame. I did pick up some cheap paints while I was at it which can later be used for some cosplay so excited about that 😀 Oh oh, and while strolling through the crafting aisles, I caught a glimpse of yarn and two things happened. One, I obviously thought of kholoud, the yarn hoarder, and two, I thought I should FINALLY get my hands on a crocheting needle and get started on that. I’ve been interested in crocheting ever since I saw it online back in AS. Now, I can actually easily get my hands on a hook AND I have the guidance of Kholoud-senpai to assist me thorough this I should actually get round to it. And I did. I bought my first hook, but I was far too much in a hurry to pick any yarn to go with it, and I wasn’t too sure what would work best for a beginner. I’m glad I waited cuz when I last asked Kholoud for some basic tips, she shed a loooot of light on all sorts of yarn I should avoid and even color preference if I want to be able to see my stitches super easily. Anyways, I’ll get some next time I’m there iA ^_^

I did look up some basic stitches and stuff on youtube and interestingly but expectedly, here’s another thing that uses a slip knot, of course xD haha, knots  ❤

(I think I’ll embed some of those videos here for future endevours maybe?)

Finally gathering all of our random wanderers, the three of us make our way to a cashier to pay and bam, Asma and I find some super cute pokemon tumblers….and we’re hooked. We took approximately like a minutes of intense thought and debate picking a tumbler design we thought was optimal and then we were REALLY ready to pay. (Ignore how most of that debate was inward and we were both just going “um er uh uh UH..!!” and “ugh ugh which..?!” aloud in actuality. At the time, it was just an impulsive buy each, but now, I’m justifying it by actually using it a bunch and finally not being as dehydrated as I normally am if I spend too many days in a row at home. (I tend to think the hassle of going down to the kitchen is too bothersome to quench my desire for paani/water.))

And with that, I’m back to catching up on Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge~! Gosh, why did I ever stop?! It’s so enjoyable ^_^

Anime Updates- Summer to Autumn ’15

*Still not addressing that year long absence…*

This summer I kinda made a decision on a whim that totally messed up my anime plan for the summer, and has kinda affected even my Autumn plans sorta, but I’m getting back on track now! Kinda. (And about to go flying off the rails again pretty soon too…)

Okay, time to explain. Traditionally, Alya and I pick out the anime we want to watch and follow for the upcoming season, and then decided which we’ll be watching together. We make compromises, deals, and wagers to figure out our anime schedule for that season.

And after I’d decided (and agreed) to watch all of the following:
I  Akagami no Shirayuki-hime (paused. Manga’s totally much better!)

II Aoharu x Kikanjuu (never started)

aoharu-x-kikanjuu
III Charlotte (finished…tonight, as is pretty evident from my last post.)
IV Classroom Crisis (finished)

V Gangsta (TOTALLY DROPPED. no.)
VI Gate: something something. Don’t remember the added on Japanese stuff. (haven’t finished)

VII God Eater (Ugh, the rest got postponed to this Winter…)

73852l
VIII Rokka no Yuusha (finished)

1441919510-0e74e7edb6002de100a613224528f3a5

I ended up putting just about all of those on pause or whatnot because…I’d started Detective Conan (DC). And I was obsessed. Within two and a half weeks I was at around sixty or seventy episodes. By two months, I was at a hundred and fifty. Then I paused because, you know, UNI.

But being me, I still managed to find myself completely drowning in anime again and got to around episode 200 and something. But then midterms and finals, so I never really got into it after how I’m pretty sure I’m past 300 now…

And that’s why about a week ago (yes, I know I’m like nine weeks late!) I dove back into this Autumn’s anime season. Which is what I’m trying to catch up on now- although the only thing I have left to catch up on is Owari no Seraph season two! (Though that was what I was most excited about this season, excluding Haikyuu season two. But finals. So I’ll catch up on it soon!)

Plans for winter break besides catch up and finish this Autumn season? Weeeeell, that’s where I take action on another bad move….

I’ve decided to watch Sailor Moon! Since I haven’t, and hopefully binging all two hundred episodes should be doable. As well as watch Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (FMAB).

And Star Wars.

Maaaaan, I’m going blind, now aren’t I?

Just CIE Things- and Distractions.

So.

CIE. A-levels. At university level. Eeps.

To say the least.

But I’m in the middle of my exams, and I’d like to add a few things I am currently obsessed with in different amounts. Varying from using day and night, to just to pass the time. Precious time that should not be wasted at that…

So here we go.

Anime (of course, the largest category);

I Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

  Genre- Magic, Fantasy, Action (and yet uptil now there’s been a SEVERE lack of it on Tatsuya’s part!! =Y ), School Life, Comedy, Romance, futuristic, Sci-Fi, Technology.  Some incest jokes, and implied incest.

II Black Bullet  

 Genre- Action (duh), has a loli (not a genre, but still must be said for some people.), some Comedy, Thriller, Post Apocalypse, End of the World Scenario, Sci-fi, Futuristic.

III Akuma no Riddle

^Whoa, that’s a huge pic =P

Genre- Yuri (lesbian content)(so far, soft, and not anything vulgar. Not even kissing so far, but it’s only been 6 episodes.), Action, Psychological, School Life, Assassins.

IV Yu-Gi-Oh!

Which one?? The FIRST one. And no, this isn’t a nostalgic I’m-gonna-watch-old-childhood-stuff-again at all. I never saw it as a kid. So on the insistence of Zaid, and many many Duel Monsters vs Yu-Gi-Oh! debates, I decided to give it a shot. No picture, because, ew, animation from 2000.

Side note V- HunterxHunter

I am now finally up to date on HxH~! Woot Woot! Only problem is, now I’m dying for the new eps *-*

On to other stuff now…Like,

VI A Korean Drama- The Bride of the Century

And now, the best scene that had me die of laughter-

Peeing Granny

^The scene where Kang Ju’s Granny peed on Doo Rim~! xD

VII Teen Wolf

Sorry, but it’s exams time. And the theme song never fails to make me burst into laughter. I mean, Scott McCaw, the flying werewolf. It’s just too damn swagtastic.

But the stories all about Stiles now <3333 AND they added Japanese stuff to it! Like characters, mythological creatures, and even the Yakuza. I mean, it’s got the Nine Tailed Fox in it. #Naruto #Kitsune

VIII New Girl

Yeaahh…I never liked it, but Exam Hype has crippled my brain and tricked it into finding it amusing currently. Weird.

IX Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23!

Another TV show I started, and it’s funny, despite the  jokes being just a tad too adult for my taste.

And the rest are other anime I may be starting soon, and what not.

Like Durarara!, Dragonar Academy, Letter Bee Academy, and others I’ve forgotten right now. Oi, I’m sleeeepy. Excuse enough.

So that’s my so far distraction list! I may have forgotten a few, but oh wyell. I’ll add more if they arise. I hope note. I need to study all that I can now.

Ciao~

Crazy, Chocolate, and Cookies,

Distractions From Exams

Blaaarrrggghhhh.

exam time nearly, only two months left for prep- GOSH that still hasnt sunk in! and- secret, ssshhhh!- havent really…started all that prepping and studying and cramming quite yet =P =/=( which is obviously stupid and sucks.

there are just so many DISTRACTIONS! aaaaaaaaggghhhhh!! i mean, everything usually seems much more interesting during times when/while we are/should be studying. but seriously, theres PLL. then theres White Collar, that i have managed to put on hold for now. and then theres Jane by Design. but, im almost done with that. so thats good. its one of those shows that cancelled after the first season. so yeaaah.

but god, im just SO scared and stressed out over these exams even all my friends and  family think im so chill over it! first off, these are the most important exams ever for me, cuz this result goes on my college applications (..yale? let me in? pwease??) and all my job interviews. its just as important, if not more, as  my SATs!

And thus im not watching shows that ill get too sucked into. you know there are those that are interesting and then there are those that are suspenseful? well, theres a difference. and a huge difference for me. like, PLL is suspenseful, while white collar is just interesting. and something like Vampire Diaries (Daaamooooooon!) that im not even starting yet just cuz i know ill get sucked into it completely need and should be stopped (watched by me, that is.) so that i can finally start studying seriously!

I really should be studying now listening to pop danthology mash up 2012….but but its so good and i really like =P =(

oh well. what happens happens. (jo hona hai hojai! -jee karda =P singh is king.)

…now i feel like watching Dr. Who… im so bad. and failing.

oh and if your wondering about that lit test i mentioned yesterday, i totally failed. Wohoo =P
