Inner gnomes and outer gnomes

I, actually, find it rather odd that I almost never talk about my feelings, emotions or my inner self on the Internet. Should I? I always feel, I don't know, embarrassed? That might be one of the reasons. Maybe I'm just a bit scared of letting other people learn more about my personality. The second reason is that nobody really cares. I am absolutely sure about that! Why would they? I mean, I don't really care about other people's personal lives or emotions.
Anyway, this whole thing is probably pointless. None of my friends comment or read this, do they?

BUT THAT WON'T STOP ME! I still sometimes feel like telling you something so I do. For instance, I went to that healer some days ago again. He told me that I don't have to worry about a job, that I will have famous friends and that I need society. The healer compared me to Vaira Vīķe Freiberga and said that I even could be a president, 'cause I have what it takes. Oh dear, he told me many things and I might see him again very soon. I will have a MAGICAL RING. I need to open my Venus. No puns here.

Hey, grass hoppers.
I just realized I've been a vegetarian for about 2,5 years now. As time goes I become more and more disgusted by the fact of eating meat. I started it with my health reasons, with a thought about taking a better care of my body. Now eating meat is something unacceptable as I've gotten more into the aesthetic part of it.
I've been thinking about going vegan. It's really hard as dairy products are everywhere and veganism isn't that popular in Latvia. I might try iy anyway.
Also, I'm trying to buy only animal cruelty free products (like cosmetics etc.). Thankfully we have Dzintars. Anyhow, being a veggie rocks. I wish more people tried veganism. Actually, I think the amount of veggies is definitely growing.

Writer's Block: Singing in the rain

What tune do you regularly find yourself humming or singing in the shower?

I think, ''Shalott'' by Emilie Autumn. Because it's a wonderful song and it has so many words sung really fast, which I always love. I mean, I love to sing along to a fast song, especially, when I know the lyrics.
Sometimes I hum, too but there isn't a specific song.

She's locked up with a spinning wheel
She can't recall what it was like to feel
She says, "This room's gonna be my grave
And there's no one who can save me,"
She sits down to her colored thread
She knows lovers waking up in their beds
She says, "How long can I live this way
Is there someone I can pay to let me go
'Cause I'm half sick of shadows
I want to see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the sun goes down
So why can't I

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it's here
And it's here for I've been told
That I'll die before I'm old
And the wind I know it's cold..."

She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a horse and rider pass
She says, "This man's gonna be my death
'Cause he's all I ever wanted in my life
And I know he doesn't know my name
And that all the girls are all the same to him
But still I've got to get out of this place
'Cause I don't think I can face another night
Where I'm half sick of shadows
And I can't see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the tide comes in
So why can't I


But there's willow trees
And little breezes, waves, and walls, and flowers
And there's moonlight every single night
As I'm locked in these towers
So I'll meet my death
But with my last breath I'll sing to him I love
And he'll see my face in another place,"
And with that the glass above

Her cracked into a million bits
And she cried out, "So the story fits
But then I could have guessed it all along
'Cause now some drama queen is gonna write a song for me,"
She went down to her little boat
And she broke the chains and began to float away
And as the blood froze in her veins she said,
"Well then that explains a thing or two
'Cause I know I'm the cursed one
I know I'm meant to die
Everyone else can watch as their dreams untie
So why can't I

Emotions on the screen

Hey there, little cardboard robots!
I had completely forgotten about my livejournal blog, so now, when I remembered, I decided to write a tiny entry here. Last few months have been busy as hell but I had a wonderful time. It feels weird to leave JRRMV, 'cause that school was literally second home. Finished my diploma work ''Forest moments''. Here's a pixie of me presenting it.

Anyway, I wanted to ask you guys something. I feel like posting here again, so I think I should definitely change my mood icons. Well, Alichino was a beautiful manga for sure but it's just not me anymore, so.. what kind of mood icons should I make? I'm pretty much out of ideas. I was thinking, maybe I could crop some moments out of Victorian photos..? Any ideas, lovelies?
I truly hope you're not gone, people!

Time flies

Hey, poodles!
I can't believe I'm here in UK already for two weeks. We are right in the middle. Still two weeks left. What can I say? I really love it here in England. I love all these small houses with beautiful doors, hills, ocean, cliffs and, of course, the lovely, kind and friendly people. We've been taught how to bind books traditionally, which is the coolest thing by now. We also made some awesome gingerbread art and now we are both working on our illustration projects. Ieva (or Eve, as everyone calls her here.. they call me Annette, by the way) is making an animation and I will have a little book with about 22 lino-cut illustrations. My book will be dedicated to the collective nouns for birds. I've cutted seven linos by now.
Anyways, I wish I knew why I chose this particular moment to write an entry, 'cause I have that phase of laziness when I want to type using only one hand. But I still want to know how are you all doing.
Happy Valentine's day, goaties!

One week left!

Good evening, lovelies!
How are you? I'm very good! I feel inspired to live and I can't wait to see what life has to offer! For some reason everything feels interesting to me and I don't anything to ruin this feeling. It seems quite strange to me but I have only one week left and then I'll spend my February in Plymouth, UK. I'll be posting from there, too, 'cause dad promised to give me his wife's camera and his computer. Ieva and I have decided what we will do there. Including that we will learn how to dance a crazy, stupid rock'n'roll (also known as kangaroo-rock) dance that we both used to know. We'll go to British pubs and we'll run on the beach. Maybe the host guy will take us to the seaside to surf! This month is full of possibilities.
As I mentioned in the previous entry, we had this carnival called ''Cosmic Organs'' at school. It was really great! We had the big hall with foil coated food (including boiled eggs with spices, crazy coloured drinks and candy), a special room called ''Cosmic Organic Video Space'' or something like that and a chillout room with Singstar karaoke. We did have a fabulous time. Danced my feet off and sang my voice out. If that wouldn't be enough! Later that night my course mates and I went to the club ''Route 66'' and then ''Piens''. I thank them for the awesome time spent together.

By now this is the only pixie I have. But I'll get loads of them as Christine took, like, millions of them. The outfit is not done yet, the same with make up. I was blood-vessels in space. HA!
Damny, I need to make myself a new set of mood icons.

Pretty flowers

Hello, poodles!

It's been such a long time! I don't even know where to start as I'm planning this entry to be short, 'cause it's so fucking late and I have to wake up early tomorrow! Everything has been quite okay. I'm happy that my mind is rather clear, there's not much to worry about. I'm spending much time on tumblr.. that site is killer. Hm, what I have been doing.. School has started and the first week was very nice. I had a great time with my lovelies and my school is really fun. It feels like home there. It will be difficult to leave that place when the semester ends.
We've been going to Coffee Inn so often lately. I drink cafe latte almost every day! It's not very good but, well, why not. I'm sure it will go away and I'll probably return to tea drinking. Not that I've stopped it, no, I still love it and drink it every day. Also, I eat soy meat often. It's a wonderful product.
Ehh, can't wait to go to England. Only two weeks left. I hope we will go to London for a day or two.
Oh, we'll be having a school carnival on Friday! I'll probably write an entry after that. :D
Anyways, I'm starting to feel sleepy, so I'll just show you some pixies of mine.
And while you're still there,

A bit of this and that

Good day, everyone!
What has been happening in my life lately is nothing very noteworthy. But since I don't feel like doing something important right now (for instance, writing my scientific research work, sketching or drawing bits for an upcoming game), I'll just gabble about my past two or three weeks.
I already told you that my research work would be about watercolour painting in the Victorian era. I'm doing quite well with it. I've written almost half of it. I ordered a book from amazon .

^ This is the cover.
Teacher also says that I'm doing fine, so now the main thing is to finish it in time.
Ieva and I have been chosen to illustrate a new game for , which is pretty wicked. It's supposed to be a fashion themed game, something like a dress up game. There are only two bad things about it: firstly, I don't have much free time on my hands because of the diploma work and the research work. Secondly, Ieva and I have very different tastes, and styles. We don't have the same point of view; she never works with computer, I find it much easier though. Of course, I hope we'll find a way to collaborate somehow.
Oh, and I have been chosen to go to an exchange trip to England. It will last the whole February of 2011. My partner will be previously mentioned Ieva. Woohoooo~
What else? Probably a couple of things, but I'll just post a pixie of myself instead of continuing my non interesting talk.
