hanging in there

Hey everyone! I know you'll all be excited about this news: I have some more animations to show you! They're pretty iffy-quality animation in the fact I was learning how to do both a lip sync and a quadruped walk cycle, which I had never done before. The lip sync is alright, but eh. And the walk cycle I figured out more as I was progressing it forward, so the beginning struggles a bit. haha.

But yeah! That's the puppet I'm using for my final project in my experimental animation. Only for the final he'll have a monocle, top hat, and bowtie.

I figure there ought to be some more pictures of what I have been up to lately: I've been trying to remember to bring my camera everywhere! But I'm doing well, I'm really excited to see my parents who are coming to visit tomorrow (Thursday)! Seriously I can't wait to mooch of of them and take me to all the fun places I can't afford to go to otherwise! haha.

I saw the new James Bond movie: and I liked it--just not as a Bond movie. I wanted more gadgets, cars, and things that which make a Bond movie. It was pretty good though: it's worth checking out for sure. I love Daniel Craig so much, haha! He's reason enough to see it. But I saw it with my friends Carina, Jenni, and Jenni's friend from high school Dierdra. It was a really fun night, except for that I've been really sick lately and felt miserable after the movie. Also of course I ruin the picture with my face since Jenni took so many pictures which all were bad of Dierdra and Carina so I didn't smile in this one, and of course it's the one where both look cute and I look ...yeah. Not cute.

I also have a bad quality picture of my recent project that I did in my Analysis of Form class: another B! Which is really good, considering I did it pretty much the day before. I didn't sleep much that night, and still have the charcoal embedded in my nose and lungs. Neverrrrr again, it was awful.

I've found this fabulous Mexican restaurant that I want to eat at pretty much every moment. And it's cheap which is the best part. I got this huge Barbacoa/Chipotle sized burrito there for about $4.50. Awesome! When you all come to visit me, we're all going there in turn. I'm hoping I get to go there tomorrow when my parents get in....hahaha. I think all I think about is food because of the awful food here in my meal plan. Sometime's you'll be surprised and will get something really great, like when they have make your own burritos or ravioli or something simple: other times they go all out and it looks like puke and you don't want to eat another quesadilla for the rest of your life and it's a problem since you're poorer than that wino on the corner.

You see my predicament.
