Ceramics 2

So it begins.
Of course I'm involved in another elaborate
project that will take forever to complete.

Here is the progress I've made so far...

Of course the figures look a lot better painted.
'Till next time...

Zombie Review

Well I finished my first book of the new year.
So if any of your are counting,
that means I only have three left to complete
that task on my list.
It seems easy but when you're as busy as I am,
it's hard to find time to read an entire book
let alone four.

This book only took me a few days since there's
not a lot going on at work and my class just
started Wednesday.

Yes I realise I used this picture in the last blog with
all the funny chapter titles but I need to use it in
this one too.
I also didn't want to give away all the chapter titles
in case someone wanted to read it so I only
did a few for fun.

Sarah and David are trying to make their marriage
work but then find themselves in the middle
of a zombie outbreak.
Typical romcom structure with a whole lot of

I'm having trouble rating the book.
It was very fast paced with a lot of zombie attacks.
There were some funny lines and some really bad
ones but overall I enjoyed it.
It wasn't the most amazing book ever but it was
a good fast read .
I'd have to categorize it like romcom movies,
you really enjoy yourself while watching it, but it's
not going to win any awards.
I would however recommend it for people who like the
Funny one liners
Awful one liners
Over abundance of swearing
Poking fun at hillbillies and religious cults

Overall, I will be reading the other books in
the series so take that for what it's worth.

A Couple Who Slays Together...

...stays together.

When living in the zombie apocalypse,
it's important to remember not to take your
partner for granted.

Balance the workload in your relationship.
No one person should be responsible for killing
ALL the zombies.

Put the small stuff into perspective.
It's better to be wrong and alive than right but
eating brains.

Talk out your big decisions.
Hear both opinions before you decide if you're
going to flee the city or hole up with Campbell's Soup and

Don't discuss your relationship problems with friends.
Zombie problems are another story entirely.

You and your partner are on the same side.
It's the side of living.

Never go to bed angry.
Terrified is okay.

Give each other compliments every day.
Even when the undead attack, it's nice to feel pretty.
Or bad ass.

Make requests, not demands.
"Please" kill that zombie, honey, I'm out of bullets.

A little bit of advice from the book I'm reading.
I know what you're thinking, and yes,
it IS a romcom zombie book.
It rules all.

More awesome couples therapy advice
for living with zombies to come.

January 19th Already?

Well my "Write more blogs" portion of my new years
list has been greatly overlooked.
I haven't even been that busy so I really have no

On a good note I have managed to complete one thing
on my list for the new year.
I sent $30 to St. Jude children's hospital this month.
I know it's not a lot, but I do have a house and car to pay for.
Although maybe I could have sent more if I didn't by myself
a couple of bookshelves but, hey, I'm only human...
Maybe I'll send more sometime soon.

I didn't think I gave myself that hard of a list to complete
but now that I look at it, it seems overwhelming.
I mean, where the hell am I going to find a flash mob?
Then again it's only January so I'll try not to get a head
of myself.

My ceramics class started yesterday and I've managed to
get myself into another elaborate project.
I couldn't really decide what to do so I came up with a bunch
of ideas and let my teacher pick the one he liked best.
He picked Zora Link.

It's nice because now I'll have matching sculptures,
but I couldn't even begin to tell you how long the last
one took.
This one is going a little smoother now that I know how
to do the techniques I need, but I'm running into problems
I didn't come across with Deku link.
So we'll see how it goes.

Well I'm off to find a flash mob!
(and by "find a flash mob" I mean get back to work)

2012 Bucket List

I know bucket lists are generally suppose
to be private, but I felt like sharing mine for fun.
These are things I'd like to accomplish this year.

See a flash mob in person
Make a new friend
Watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy in one sitting
Star Wars as well. Maybe all six.
Start to learn guitar
Go to New York
Finish my living room
Paint my bathrooms
Do something people will remember
Go to the Science Center
Read 4 books
Go snowboarding
Donate something to a charity
Find a new signature cupcake recipe
Write more blogs
Get a new tattoo

I hope that's not more than I can accomplish
in one year.
It always seems do-able until you're halfway
through the year and you haven't even started.

It's Been Real 2011

Writing about the end of the year is hard.
It's always "Wow this year has flown by!" and
"Man where did the year go?"
Both of which are 100% true but it's all been said
and everyone knows because they feel the exact
same way.

Closer to New Years you look back on the year
and then put it all behind you to start a new.
Here are some of my favorite blogs of 2011...

I'm Just Blowing In The Wind
Breath In, Breath Out, Sip, Repeat
It's Laminated!
Adventure Time
Cat Architecture
For My Dad
I Am Flawed
A Life Cleanse
A Proud Breed Of Nerd
For Eric
Gallery Show #1
Adventures Of A Procrastinator

This year I celebrated my first real one year
anniversary, quit Hot Topic, started to live alone,
remodeled my basement, went back to school, had all kinds of
firsts, and found a couple of great bars to hang out at
with my friends.

Although this year was great, I'm really
looking forward to the next one and I hope it will be
just as awesome.

New Years this year was quite successful.
Despite the minor mishaps we had at the beginning of the
night with the cab, we all ended up having a pretty
good time.
I could have done without all the vomit but at least I
wasn't the one puking.

Anyways, peace out 2011.
You will not be missed.
Time for a new year
