I'm having lots of trouble finishing posts.

I don't really know why, either. I just lately seem to be experiencing quite a bit of difficulty. Is it school stress? Writer's block? Other homework? Just like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, the world may never know.
Ironically, I'm currently eating a tootsie pop. Maybe I should have counted the licks?
Actually, I don't really lick tootsie pops. I just kinda eat them like a normal person, you know?
I wasn't kidding, I actually AM eating a tootsie pop.
It's a chocolate one. Yummy.
I'm also in homework club right now. I don't know why this applies to this post at all, but I suppose it does, somehow. I think. After homework club, I have volleyball practice. This means that I likely won't get home until six tonight. *Sigh.*
I'm gettin' really tired of Homework club really fast. Somehow, I still have this lollipop. It's still tasty.
Oh man. I'm now one of the--get this--THREE other people in here.
At least I have my music!

Okay, now I'm just procrastinating.

The Gif Debate

Ome of the biggest debates on the internet:
Is the word 'gif' pronounced like Jiff (the peanut butter) or like Gift minus the 't' at the end?
The world may never know, but how about you? If you want, post a comment of what you think the pronunciation of this feared and revered word is.

This post is pretty must just a series of GIFs I think you might find amusing. It's an apology, of sorts, for my recent lack of posting.
Do gifs even work on blogger?
I guess we'll find out.

Paula Deen riding things-look it up. 

Because why not have a Homestuck gif? This adorable little dude is the Mayor of Cantown.

More Homestuck.  I <3 Dave Strider.


Hercules gif!



Oh gosh, I keep trying to post these, but they keep crashing my computer. I think I'll do a gif post part two to prevent this. 
I promise I'll post it later!

The Sarcasm Curse (And Oodles of Audrey Links)

Just a quick note, this post was inspired (heavily) by my good friend Audrey, the same Audrey whose blog is linked in her name. The very same Audrey who drew a more awesome dragon than I did. The same Audrey I took selfies with and started a class riot with (Link to that post here, I promise it's not another Audrey link). Also, don't try clicking on all the Audrey links, they all lead to Audrey's blog's home page. Sorry, I think I'm having too much fun with the Audrey links here. Hehe, sorry about all the blog views Audrey. Now you owe me one (slip a link in a post for me, will ya Audrey?)
AudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudreyAudrey. Heheh.

That side note wasn't as quick as I hoped it would be, unfortunately....ahah....

....Moving on....

Those of you who know me know that I'm a very sarcastic person. Well, I try to be. There's a slight issue I have with sarcasm that all my friends will confirm.
Unless I'm trying really, REALLY hard, my normal voice sounds almost exactly like my sarcastic voice.
If you thought I was showcasing my sarcastic talents back in that last sentence, you were very wrong. In fact, I could never have been more sincere about something in my life
*coughs* I wasn't being sarcastic there, either, just so you know.
As I was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself, my normal voice has some sort of quality to it that makes it sound constantly sarcastic. This can be a problem for me, especially in conversations.
Serious conversations.
Here's an example of a conversation gone terribly wrong due to someone misinterpreting my facial cues and voice...

Context: On a lake on my friend's parents' boat

Me (To a friend's parent): This boat can go super fast.
Friend's parent: Well, if you don't like it, why don't we just make you fall out of this extremely suicidal inner tube we're towing you in.
Me: Ohno. *Gets thrown out of inner tube*

Context: My Birthday Party several years ago

Me (to guest): Thanks, I've always wanted one of these! It's even my favorite color! *cheesy grin*
Guest: Well I have a receipt. You can return it if you don't like it. *Sulks*
Me: Ohno. *proceeds to hug guest*

Context: Restauraunt with Family

Me (to waitress/waiter): Ooh, can I have some more breadsicks please? They're just so tasty!
Waitress/er: *struggles to maintain smiling face* If you're dissatisfied with your meal, due to our 100% satisfaction guarantee, we can offer you all of your money back.
Me: Ohno. It's actually really tasty. *proceeds to explain to waiter/tress)

As you can see, this whole sarcasm curse is a bit of a...well....a curse. I'm actually really polite (most of the time), promise. It's not that I have a problem with sarcasm, I actually really love it. It's just that after a while, you get a bit tired of being istaken for some sort of cynical jerk who insults everything and everyone.
If you ever meet me, I wish you luck discerning my sarcasm from my normal speech.
Thanks for reading!

Uh, what now?

I have no idea what to post about next.
Not anything personal, obviously. That stuff is super boring.
Like I said at some point earlier, I would like to keep my personal stuff off of this blog. I don't know, it's just I don't really enjoy reading about other people's problems, and so I'd like to keep this blog a light and happy atmosphere you can go to feel better, laugh, and generally procrastinate.
I want my readers to have fun reading my blog! Please, if you have any suggestions for posts or post ideas, post a comment. I'd love to contribute some of your art or work or something on my blog, or maybe even draw something for you!
I'm sorry for that little tangent there. Now it's time for the real post. Like, the legit thing.
Of course, it'll include some of my drawings.
Of course, it'll have some sort of (my attempt of) humor.
Of course, it'll have some sort of random label.
Here we go again.
A subject of art that I've been focusing on a lot lately is drawing...well, animals. All sorts of animals. Mostly mammals and reptiles, of course, but also fictional creatures. I do have a few favorite things to draw, though. You've probably guessed by now that they're:

  • Puffins
  • Dragons
  • My Dog
  • ....more dragons
  • Dinosaurs
  • .........even more dragons.....
  • Okay, maybe I'm totally obsessed with drawing dragons.
Today, though, I'm gonna try to draw something new, something completely different! I think. Hopefully.
Actually, I give up. Here's a hoss. (That's a horse, by the way.)

So...happy birthday. Take some cake or something.

All of these Posts are Rather Pointless

But they're still fun.
Hey hey hey! How's life in the world of the reader (you)? Anything fun happen lately?
Oh, well, okay. I guess since I don't really have much else to talk about, I'll be telling you more about myself.
Mostly my childhood.
Specifically my elementary school years.
In elementary school, I was waaaay different than I am now. I LARPed (Live Action Role Played) as some sort of mythical creature 24/7, and my friends and I had a club called the DC, or Dragon Club.
These days were mostly in 2nd through 5th grade, though. First grade.....bleh. Not so fun.
It was because I was a little kid and rather socially unacceptable. I didn't realize how bad it was at the time, but it was pretty bad.
I had relatively long hair that I always wore in two braids, and I was still talking in a tiny bit of a Texan accent. I tended to wear totally un-matching clothes ALL the time (and refused to wear jeans), I ate a ton but was super skinny, and....and just....I was kind of a jerk to everyone and I was rather cocky and full of myself. It was annoying.
To sum it up, I had straight-cut bangs.
Did I already mention how bad it was?

Here's an illustration of my elementary school self.
Like I said, it was bad. And this is how I met and introduced myself to my BFF of elementary school.

It's pretty bad.

I also ended up beating up a few football players who were my age after they insulted me and my BFF. 
Actually, they insulted my 'griffin's honor,' (LARPed as a golden griffin) which was a HUGE deal to me.

Here's a small comparison of what I thought I was and did compared to what I ACTUALLY was and did.

I thought I was all like:
A Griffin

But I was actually all like:

So that about explains my Elementary School Years.
I hope you had fun reading!
