Tagged - A few annoying facts about myself

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 16, 2011, 7:43 AM
Hey guys :)
To start off I just wanted to point your attention towards a contest my friends :iconcarpevivere: and Victoria have joined for redesigning the Deadmau5 head. I think their design deserves some love :)  If you have the time, please give their hard work some support by voting, available here www.talenthouse.com/creativein…


__________________________

TAGGED
I was tagged by :iconkinopia: and :iconredcharcoal:

RULES TO FOLLOW:
>> I shall post ten annoying facts about me.
>> I shall annoy ten random peoples in return by tagging them.
>> I shall pursue my annoying game of hide and tag by commenting on their pages to notify them they've been tricked in the worst way possible. Because everyone knows you die a painful death if you break a tag game.
>> I shan't tag the person who tricked me back, because it would be as pointless as Endless Eight.
You guys know what I'm talking about.

1. There are days where I've listened to one single song on repeat for the entire day. It annoys the people around me who have to put up with it.

2. I can't stand slow walkers in a crowd, it drives me insane even though I can be quite a slow walker myself.

3. I'm easily forgetful, it takes me ages to reply emails and notifications since I tend to read   them right away but have a horrible habit of putting it off to reply for later. Then I just end up forgetting about it.

4. I can sleep in till 3 in the afternoon :p

5. I find stress relief in shopping, then realize how broke I am when I've spent my hard earned money - which results in turning to shopping again; it's a vicious cycle.

6. I get bored really easily, out of all the console games I've started playing, I've probably only finished a tenth of them.

7. I'm a gullible person. People have taken great advantage of that :p

8. I don't think I've picked up and finished reading a novel since high school. Since I'm such a slow reader, I'd much rather read graphic novels or comics just since they're a quicker read.

9. I will need to sleep with the lights on for a few weeks after watching a horror movie.

10. I'm a hoarder, I have a hard time letting go of useless things.


I shall annoy:

The weekend passed by so ridiculously fast, I was able to meet and talk to a bunch of amazing inspiring artists!! I feel so honored to have been able to print trade with many of them. It's really kind of motivated me to work harder and update my equipment with the money I earned this weekend. Thanks to those who bought prints and bookmarks, you've supported a poor student in need haha. It's all going towards a canon 60D, which I am super super excited about :D I'm really glad some of you guys were able to stop by, and it's nice to have met many of you in person :D

I still have several prints left over as well as bookmarks and a couple sets of my postcard collection. I'll have them available on here for purchase for very reasonable prices within the next few days, keep your eyes glued :D

Well this is kind of awkward, I kind of just left on an unintentional hiatus. I had always planned on submitting every once in a while but even that seemed impossible from the crazy schedule I was going through. D.A. has changed a lot since I've left and it's kind of hard trying to adjust to all the changes. It's kind of scary how much I miss this community and being a part of it.

I'm finally picking the camera up again and starting to kick myself up to do some new photoshoots. Thanks so much to everyone who's stuck around and continued to support me despite me leaving, I'm sorry ;___; but I just want to let everyone know that I'm back =]

Oh goodness, how fast time flies, I realized the last time I updated my journal was BEFORE anime north ;__; I thought I'd do a quick update before my subscription ends!!
I've been wanting to renovate my room for YEARS now. Ever since I moved into it, I never got the chance to paint the walls. I detested the patterns on the wall and the way it lacked atmosphere and colour. So I finally got some free time this summer to work on it, it took about a week for me to get everything done, move things out, paint the walls, buy the furniture and decor. My dad argues that my painting is uneven and sloppy ;___; I'm still working on some things like getting paintings and shelves up on the walls. Oh goodness, I am so ashamed of how my room looked in the "before" pictures, please don't think of me as a slob!!

Additionally, I have a really dear friend, :iconshamziel:, who is participating in the Armada Singing Contest. She has a really beautiful voice and I would really appreciate it if you could support her by watching her entry and spreading the word!! Her entry can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlhxzM…

So it's been months since I've updated my journal, but I'm FINALLY getting around to answering those questions you guys asked =] OKAY here we go!!

What do you plan on doing with your photographic career?/What are you majoring in?
Well I'm really doing photography as just a hobby. I just finished my first year in design, and although it was really stressful at times, I LOVE it :D I'm still unsure in which direction I want go with, maybe I'll merge photography with design work in the future? I guess we'll have to wait and see =]

What did you do to get where you are today?
Hmm it's really just a lot of going out and practicing. I really enjoy shooting outdoors, so every photoshoot helped me improve in working with natural light, directing models, camera angles, etc. I look at a lot of fashion magazines and make up tutorials to get me inspired to different looks and feels in photos.

I started off doing a lot of self portraits, eventually I got friends to model, then models around the area noticed my work and I guess it just expanded from there. Connections are really significant if you're into portrait photography. I'm still on the lookout of collaborating with stylists, make up artists and the like.

Where do you get the most inspiration for your art?
I like to look at fashion campaigns and magazines for interesting colour pallets. Otherwise, scenes from those really emotional dramas, hahaa they give me ideas for emotions and stories that I may want to tell through pictures.

How many years did you live in Germany? Und sprichst du deutsch?
I lived there for roughly 5 years, I had a lot of memorable childhood memories there. And for the second part of your question, I can still understand basic everyday conversations in german but have trouble piecing together sentences to actually speak it =(

Why do you ignore comments?

What's your favorite thing to eat when you need a pick-me-up?
haha nah I joke. I don't ignore comments, I read every comment I get and honestly, comments are my favourite part of this community. I really like reading the feedback and critiques you guys leave. Although I may not always be able to reply them, just know that I'm really grateful for you taking the time to write something =]

Hmm, as for what I'd have for a pick-me-up, it would definitely be coffee. It's saved me on numerous occasions =] I know it's not something you'd eat, but..yeah ;__;

If you were to give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
It would definitely be to not take things so seriously and try not to be so hard on myself.

What's your biggest/ultimate dream/goal?
I'm still not quite sure what I want to specifically do with my art. But I just want to be able to make an impact on others. Otherwise, my ultimate goal is to be happy =]

Why are you collecting random things? Ever think about using them in a collage?
I have no idea why I collect plastic bags and price tags. I've just kind of gotten into the habit of keeping them, I suppose a collage would be a really interesting idea =D

What if you had a little mini panda? Would you be scared to hold it?
Hmm, truthfully, I've read that pandas are very strong animals that have claws that could probably tear me apart ;___; So yes, I would probably be terrified to hold it. DARN, why do they have to be so deceivingly cute!!

BTW, I'm clearing out a ton of my stuff. So be on the lookout for a journal post sale in the future. I'm selling old magazines, lolita dresses, bags, etc. And of course prints and stuff =]

Additionally, I thought why not answer any questions you guys have for me about my work. I'll have something like an FAQ journal up next time :D It's been awhile since I've felt like I've communicated with you guys, so hopefully this'll change that.

Okay, here we go!! :D

1. I have some strange obsessions, I tend to collect odd things. Plastic/paper shopping bags and price tags from clothing. I think I can fill up an entire garbage bag with them..
2. I think I have at least 100 bottles of nail polish.. most never opened xD
3. Most of my childhood was spent in Berlin, Germany.
4. I have social anxiety disorder.. but I'm currently fighting really hard to overcome it =]
5. I'm ashamed to say that I went trick-or-treating at the age of 18 ;__;
6. I'm a terrible singer, and can't dance if my life counted on it.
7. I have a shopping addiction, I know it's terrible but it feels soooo good LOL
8. I fangirl squeal when I watch romance dramas.. xD
9. I'm kinda spontaneous, often times I go ahead and do things without thinking twice..
10. I'm terribly scared of handling any kind of animal, including fuzzy cute ones.. I don't even know why I got a hamster ;__; So I tend to stalk watch them from a distance xD

I tag anyone who wants to be tagged xD
Leave your questions in the comments section =]

Hey guys,
Sorry for being inactive for so long, there's been a lot of stuff going on at school that forced me to ban myself from dA. I've been doing some self portraits recently, I just haven't gotten around to post processing them or uploading them. 3 major photoshoots are coming up within the next couple of month, I'm so so excited about all of them, it's so great to finally get back to photography. I want to get as many photoshoots done during my 3 weeks break as I can fit in, which brings me to this. I was hoping I could get an assistant or two for 2 of my major photoshoots this winter. If you're interested in being a part of the photoshoot process, feel free to send me a note about it =] I basically just need someone to hold up reflectors, help me carry stuff and what-not.


I'll have lots of stuff up by next week, sorry for being away ;__; I miss this community so much, and I'm so grateful for all the encouraging and uplifting comments everyone left on my last journal. First year in university has just been an emotional roller coaster for me, but I'm glad you guys are on it with me =D I'll post up some photographs of the stuff I've been working on in my program, I'm really loving the program and the projects (...except typography xD).

So one more week left before I'm free, I promise to keep you guys posted on things. I'm starting a blog soon so maybe that'll get me to update more often xD
P.S. I'm on twitter, update there constantly =] twitter.com/jaicca

Life is Depressing

  • Eating: starving
  • Drinking: water
I just have to vent this out, I feel like I've been wearing this mask about university ever since September. Truth is, I am seriously stressed out, and I've been breaking down a lot lately.

As a commuter, I am having the hardest time I've ever had. I swear I waste at least 15 hours a week just on transportation and any days I get off, I have a full day of work. Because of all the commuting, I've been lacking sleep and the time I need to spend on homework is cut down.

The thing is, I can't quit work. The holiday season is coming up and I know that I need the money. I've been going on shopping rampages lately to forget about all these worries. It's this nonstop cycle, the more I work and the more I stress myself out, the more money I spend.

OSAP (student loans) aren't helping me out, I still didn't get my money.. and interest for my tuition fee is building up. Something messed up while I was on vacation in China over the summer, and I have made numerous calls to try to fix it up. It's not looking good right now..

Now my family is heading to Cuba for a week at the end of this month while I stay back. They refuse to take me with them because I need to "concentrate on school". Such bullshit, wasn't it my mom who pushed me so hard to get a job. So working practically 18 hours a week isn't interrupting with school? I just feel so lost right now, I feel like nothing in my life is right. I just want to fast forward past my exams and enjoy the holidays.

Sorry that this journal had to be so depressing, I just had to let it out.

Oh man.. I'm having a hard time adjusting to university. I despiseeeee commuting, but at the same time I don't want to isolate myself by living on campus. The workload is really..kinda scary. Maybe it's just because I'm having difficulty with the contrast from high school to college xD I get so hungry so often. Eating times are so messed up when you're scheduel is all over the place.. my tummy keeps grumbling and distracting others xD LOL I'm so retarded..
But I really like how everyone is just really helpful and generous though =] I don't know how many times I've asked for directions xD

I actually really want to meet up with new models and do some photoshoots, since the last time I really did any were before summer started.. UGH I miss photoshoots ;____; and self portraits are no fun. Before winter I want to do a sweet-lolita photoshoot. If anyone is interested, note me =] I would really prefer if you had a cute, sorta chubby face ^___^ I just want it to look very doll like. I am a size medium, so I would prefer if you were too, then I can just provide the wardrobe etc..

Otherwise, I'm up for pretty much any sort of a photoshoots, if you want to model for those, contact me =D
And photographers in Toronto, lets meet up!! We should all go photoshoot together ^___^ Maybe even pose for each other xD SO LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN =D
