half of it was on my ipad

So my lock screen collage was much better well received than I was expecting so, since so many of you liked it and since it is a certain Mr. Scientia’s birthday ‘today’ (an hour off in my timezone but its the 7th elsewhere in the world rn so who the fuck cares  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) I am sharing my non-lock screened version for all of y’all because everyone needs a beautiful phone to wake up to in the morning. 

Tumblr is probably going to bollocks up the picture so here is an imgur link to it.  It was made for iPhone 7 plus resolution (1080x1920) so it should scale to any other size nicely.  

Since it didn’t take half as long as I expected I am also tempted to do one for my ipad so they can match once I have had the chance to get onto my platstation and rummage for even more screenshots for the bigger size (ahahaha i say this like I might not have enough ahahahahahaha I have enough to sink the titanic all over again….) If I do you can be sure I will share that as well o/

*s WEATS*

about a month and a half ago, past-me decided, “hey, I really need to get better at drawing clothes, and I love Venetian carnevale costumes, and I love aph Veneziano! works out!”

fuck past-me. fuck her.

I’m still in awe at how I managed the embroidered stuff on the costume, but somehow? it happened? I can’t believe it actually looks decent

also please ignore wonky proportions/boots I t r i ed

oh yeah this was supposed to be a gift to @ask-risorgimento-italy so here you go I guess

okay so I’m at this tiny diner in St. Paul getting food, and this group of like four adults in their thirties-forties walk in and take the booth next to mine. They were the kind of people you’d expect to see downtown late at night, so I just figured they’d get their food, talk for a bit and leave

but then

the Star Wars theme blasts from their booth, I hear an opening narration from The Clone Wars cartoon, and Ahsoka starts talking

four full grown adults, none of which looked like they would even LIKE Star Wars, crowded in a booth watching a Star Wars cartoon on an iPad at night in a tiny roadside diner.

they got through two and a half episodes.

it made my night.

🥒 some things

🥒 i was thinking i’d be super bored tonight but i think i’m okay. it’s already 3:00a and i haven’t cleaned yet, so i’ve got that to look forward to.

🥒 that drug i took thursday night fucked me UP. a half tab is fine, but that whole thing was way too much. i wasn’t right for two days after i took it.

🥒 i forgot my ipad so now if i want to read it will have to be on my phone which i don’t like as much. le sigh.

🥒 i am really, really, really, very much in love with my boyfriend. i’m deliberate and intentional about being vulnerable and raw with him. i’ve always held men at arm’s length, way more than i realized until after the failure of my second marriage. so much to process.

🥒 i am not at all happy with my hair color i had done last week. i feel like a dick asking him to redo it, but i’m going to call tomorrow and ask him anyway. it’s not being a dick, right? i’ve been tipping him well for years. i mean i really hate it.

🥒 i agreed to stay late for the coworker who normally relieves me at 6:30a. she had just finished a paper when she texted me at 2:00a. i probably wouldn’t have said yes if it was anyone else.

🥒 i was going to replace the furnace filters here at work (it’s a big old house) but i could not for the life of me figure out where they are on/in the furnace. i’m normally pretty handy, too.

🥒 i haven’t been doing my PT and that’s going to come back to bite me pretty soon. maybe i’ll do some tonight here at work.

🥒 i pretty much slept all weekend. this overnight schedule has fucked me up a bit. i feel somewhat out of touch.

🥒 i want another massage. maybe friday. but i’ll have to figure out what other part of my budget i can take it from.

🥒 i haven’t been doing my skincare routine. my skin is going to get icky.

🥒 i’ve bored myself with this list. will i even post it?

KBTBB Snapchat (Fluff / Humor Request)

Hi! I was wondering if you’re open for requests? If you are and if you have time, could you do a HC/ short story of the Bidders catching the MC playing Pokemon Go or playing around with Snapchat filters and joins in with her? LOL XD

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

Hi there, thx for your request and patience. I had fun writing this ;) Apologize in advance if Mamoru’s one is slightly longer, can’t help it with my love

Fandom: Kiss by The Baddest Bidders
Category: fluff, fanfic, romance, humor
Character: Eisuke, Soryu, Baba, Mamoru, Shuichi

Prologue (bidders’ POV)
Another long day at work, only one thing on my mind to make it all better. As my feet get closer, I hear her funny giggle through the half open door and see her lying comfortably on her stomach, showing her seductive curve. Hmm I like the view of that, quietly walk towards our bed as I see a vague image on her ipad screen, is that a man? Is she looking at my photos? Wait, that doesn’t look like me though. Standing behind her in no time, staring at the ridiculous photo she’s laughing so hard at, “What is this, ______?”

Well. It’s done.

I signed up and paid for the March sitting of exam MFE. I think I am literally the only person in our prep course that is doing it then instead of July, and I’m slightly freaking out. I have a month and a half to learn all of the material and master every type problem the exam can give me.

But I’m doing it as a test. If I can push myself to do this, I’ll know I can push myself to do anything.

Also, the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are literally life changing. I’m only carrying around old notebooks for reference from my old notes; I take all of my class notes and do all of my studying through this app called GoodNotes and it’s basically the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.

Anyway, happy studying, and wish me luck as I try not to die from an 18 hour course load, an incredibly difficult exam, and enjoying college a little bit.

❤️Jess

5 things game

I was tagged by @noisypaintersong and as some of you might know, I love these lists! :D

5 things you will find in my bag:
My wallet, my phone (in its Life-Proof case, because I always drop the damn thing - but I still love it, because it has my music on it), a spare set of earbuds so I can listen to music on the bus, my small black notebook that has my brainstorming ideas, and my mini iPad so I’ll never be without a book of some kind.

5 things you’ll find in my bedroom:
My slippers, a unicorn doll that I’ve had since I was 8 years old, another notebook filled with story ideas with a pen right by it, a usually half-empty bottle of Ibuprofen (for headaches) and an insane number of hair-ties which constantly accumulate on my bedside table.

5 things I’m currently into:
Voltron Legendary Defender (shocker, I know ;-)), the show Naruto (I’m seeing it through for the first time), crafting (everything from embroidery to counted cross-stitch to soon-to-be attempted painting), writing, and working out to the Zombies Run app. 

5 things on my to-do list.
Try to work out every day (@noisypaintersong is my fellow Zombies Run enthusiast :D), finish some of the bigger crafting projects I keep meaning to get around to, finish listening to ‘The Dresden Files’ on audiobook, pick up my new dress from the alterations shop, and go rock-climbing.

5 things people may not know about me:
1. When I was about ten years old, I took a few horse riding lessons and one day, mid-canter, the horse’s saddle came undone. It hadn’t been put on tight enough, so I ended up tumbling off, but I didn’t break any bones. The instructor was surprised when I wanted to get back on the horse, but I finished the lesson. To quote Hiccup: “We’re Vikings. We have - stubbornness issues.”

2. When I was at college, I was out for a run one day in the mountains and almost got bit by a rattlesnake. Apparently I have great reflexes, because when I saw it coming, I jumped a lot higher than I thought I could. Personal best, right there.

3. I once went for a swim into a mountain pond when it was under thirty degrees outside because, and I quote my reasoning at the time ‘I wanted to see if I could do it’. PSA: Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. If I had a Tardis, I’d sit my past self down and just lay some common sense down. 

4. My ‘Lost Paladins’ series has a word count longer than that of ‘Crime and Punishment.’ I am both proud and unnerved. Mostly proud, though. :-) I really do love writing these stories. Link is here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/Rangergirl3/series

5. I have had so many medical mishaps, I’ve started a personal game of bingo. Dark humor, yes, but hey - it’s surprising what you can live through. PSA: The bingo game that follows is not for the faint of heart. Woken up during a surgery? Check. Nearly got hit by a car that swerved to hit me? Check. Been prescribed a medication I was allergic to because the doctor didn’t check his notes and nearly died as a result? Check. Had a dentist pull out four adult teeth without enough numbing agent (when I was about eleven)? Check. (Pretty sure the dude was a sadist, btw). And for the free square: Having a family history of resilience to any and all pain medicine and/or sedatives…which probably accounts for all of the above mishaps. That, or I’m a Red Shirt.

Since it’s more nerdy, I think I’ll go with the Red Shirt option. :-)

stargazing

I have a friend who likes stargazing more than she likes people
And her obsession has seeped into my skin. She made me realise
How many stars were scattered around me. My wallpapers, my iPad’s lock screen, homepages, and poetry.
I tag in her in photos of starry skies captured by photographers
Whose names I cannot pronounce and I think of her
Every time I look up.
Now, I know the name of two and a half constellations
(and that is being generous) but if I connect the dots
Between me and her, I think we end up with something bigger than two girls.
A duo in a cosmic dance, she and I take shifts in existing:
One day, straining overachiever. Second day,
The green tea slipping warmly into the other’s stomach
Because she is sick again. Which she? There is only one -
We pass her back and forth like hot coal. Your turn, then mine.
This way, we share the burns of being ourselves.
And the poets talk about stardust and rust and I must
Say - I do not agree with that metaphor. My friend and I
are more like the sky:
I, the vast darkness, and she, the pinpricks
Of hopeful light embedded in it.

happy holidays to everyone / this ‘blog’ began with a short video of this song / at the time I didn’t want to reveal too much as the song wasn’t finished but I never got around to giving it a clearer sound / it was in the era of casually making music on an iPad / well, here it is, 1/3 of it, at least, and it actually has a chorus / this has been a long, frustrating journey of half-songs and fear of finishing and general mixing without monitors and recording on my phone and the likelihood of all this becoming something, and then becoming something people will want to hear live, well it’s all rather unlikely, isn’t it? / when you pass someone they go in the lung breathing in the crumbs from the things they’ve done are you dying to know what you will become will it make you choke when you hear the hum I’m only someone when no one is around to see arms and legs come apart then my head from the neck are you dying to know how you slithered out and it knows your name and it’s in the house

i feel like my head is going to explode.

i am attending three courses at school at the moment. one of those three courses is an a-ok one, where we just draw on ipads. the second one is half attending lectures and half planning a project for which i have to make presentations after presentations. these two courses are actually marked in my school timetable, but the third one is an actual theater production, which just has to be squeezed somewhere in there as well, meaning meetings with the production team and my independent design work. i am pretty much torn as it is, but i do need to support myself financially as well, so i have commissions to do (don’t get me wrong, i like doing those!) and i need to grasp all the occasional job gigs that come my way, as i have no other income. hooray.

i am so. stressed. and tired and there is no other way for me to get this solved than just fight through it and wait for it to get easier.

For my fortieth Evangelion book review, here is E-SAKUGA Evangelion: 3.0 #2, published by Onebilling Inc.  (Wow, I can’t believe I’m at 40 book reviews already!  My Evangelion collection has grown to over 100 books, though, so I’ve still got a long way to go…)  This interactive e-book is the continuation of E-SAKUGA Evangelion: 3.0 #1, which I covered back in my thirtieth review.  In other words, it contains production sketches and animation key frames for the second half of the Evangelion: 3.0 movie, and they can be explored through videos and other nifty tools.

At the time I am writing this, E-SAKUGA Evangelion: 3.0 #2 only works on an iPad, iPhone, or Mac, but hopefully it will be made available for other devices eventually.  I used it on an iPad, so the images you are seeing in this review are screen captures taken from the iPad (the above picture is the book’s title page).  By the way, don’t worry if you can’t read Japanese instructions, because there is also a version of this e-book that has English instructions!  (Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a French version, at least not yet.)  As an example of what can be found inside, check out this page of Kaworu and Shinji sketches:


Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures and even a video!

So, I kinda know I have a problem when I, being on the top floor of a three storey house, race down two flights of stairs at breakneck speed with no thought for my own safety, because I heard the distinctly beautiful sound of the Rise of the Guardians soundtrack emanating from the front room through not one, but two floors.

Cue me air punching when I am indeed right, and my father has to sit through the last half hour of the movie and has to listen to me waxing poetic about my ickle baby Boogeyman because he knows that if he so much as even glances at the remote control, he will not hear the end of it for some time…

T'is the season, bitches!
