2006

I’ve been drawing for quite a long time. I sadly can’t say I’ve been drawing for most of my entire life, but it’s safe to say I’ve been drawing for 1/3rd if not more of it.

As described in my previous story about deviantART, my art skills didn’t really take off until I had access to the platform. A couple of years before that I had taken a short three-week special course at Walters State in a summer drawing class. That helped up my skills a whole bunch over my pre-teen drawings. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible, either.

When I started to get my feet wet on the Internet, not all of it went well. Quite the opposite. I was quite a newb, and my homeschooling background coupled with strict parents didn’t help. Then add that I wasn’t on it enough to get the hang of things. It was a very bad combination.

I talked to very few people online. But there was one person I was in correspondence with that I had met over an Atlantis fanfic. As time went on they introduced me to a site by the name of deviantART. I signed up in 2004 after hearing them mention they were on it, and slowly started to delve into what it had to offer. I do remember I had posted a few things but because of my social ineptness mixed with poor drawing skills, pieces were lackluster at best. I didn’t even have a proper scanner at the time.

So! To kick off the first of my review posts, we start with a book. A very instrumental book in the creation of my blog program, actually.

Written by Margaret Mason, No One Cares What You Had for Lunch is a smallish paperback book I picked up from Books-A-Million in 2009 after my spiral from graduation. I was unable to find a job, lost most of my friends and was getting in hot water for “ranting” on Facebook. Yeah, long story.

I honestly wanted to learn how to blog short of typing angry feelings at the world. What should I blog about? What was okay to put on the Internet? How could I connect to someone by sharing what I experienced?

I swiped this from a relative’s phone. On our way back home, I decided to be super silly, making it out that my glasses had a pair of eyes. I had no idea they snapped the photo till later, but it did give them a laugh, at least! The hat isn’t too bad, though.

As much as I wanted to go sightseeing when I went to Florida, this was not to be. However, the family decided to swing by this little NASA Hall of Fame center before the actual space center, which did have a few cool exhibits and a couple of interesting rides. At least I got a T-shirt and hat combo out of it.

 

I was told not to take the camera in, so I apologize for the flip phone quality.

Sorry if the desk is a little messy, but I figured that someone would like to see what my computer is for all that I currently do, such as deviantART and the like. Meet the Millenium Mainframe.

 

This is an HP xl847. Windows Me OS (hence the name “Millenium”), 40GB hard drive and two optical drives, one being a DVD-R. Graphics card is an HP Vanta 16, and has 128MB of RAM. Optional equipment is the yoke on the bottom, sometimes for flight games.

 

Also I know fishie’s tank has low later, I’m giving it a cleaning in a bit.
