These Past Few Days (have been very odd)

                 My, my, where do I start??? So many things have happened in this past week; one of which is what I'll affectionately call as "The Case of the Calculator Stalker." Over the course of a few months, I was assigned a calculator to use when doing algebra. All of us share calculators; mine is number 15. What was happening was that I would receive messages on there from whoever had it earlier. The first few times, it said "you're awesome :)" and that gave me an ego boost (not like I needed one). About a week or so ago, it left the lyrics to one of my favorite songs called "We Are Young" and that completely made my day. But just this past week, it said my name! I found out who this was (it was a great friend of mine), but I still haven't found out who did the other ones.
                 Last weekend, I was previewing a new album by a band I was beginning to become very fond of and (unfortunately) just soiled their good name. In the 1st 20 seconds of the first song, the lead singer dropped the f-bomb, leaving the clue that multiple other words were on their way and needless to say, I didn't need to hear any more. I was heartbroken and left to simply leave my laptop in a room, so if anyone had any good bands they want to recommend, that could help out. It was just such a disappointment and from such a good band, I would expect something better; I wouldn't be surprised if later they just faded into obscurity.
                   This weekend, however, was a bit of an interesting lazy sort-of weekend. I wasn't able to write here during the week because I got busy, but yesterday and most of today, I had some friends over and we watched "Lord of the Rings" (or at least what we could fit in an 8-hour time frame). I couldn't even believe I was able to stay awake for most of it. I love those movies, but please take into consideration the fact that we started watching at about 10-ish and stayed awake until 2:30, then woke up and at about noon watched more until 3. HOW INSANE!!!!!
                    My, my, how will I end??? With the other posts, I had a bit more of a point.... OH! I have an assignment for anyone who opens and reads this blog (not like there are many). Your assignment is to look up "Olan Rogers" on YouTube and watch all of his videos. Trust me, I almost peed when I watched the clips; HILARIOUS! This, by the way, is a little less of an assignment and more of a fun activity. Do this one solid and I will present you with more solids (Ghost in the Stalls- highly recommended). :^]

Sunday Morning

             I think that my mind has been officially been frazzled. I can't think of a single thing to write about today. Currently, I'm watching random music videos on T.V. and I think its really odd how most of the time the videos have nothing to do with the song. I've also noticed how no-one in country music ever lives up to the status of "country." I mean, I'm not much of a country music fan, but I know that those singers could live up to something more. There are a few that are talented, but they're far and few between.
             Another thing; why is it that grown women try to sound like they're little 13 year old girls when we know very well that they're the opposite (31)? It's rather frustrating to see how people sell themselves just to make a chunk of cash. Someone may have even the smallest scrap of talent and then, all of a sudden, you see their whole body scantily clothed on some stage, singing about uncensored things that should remain in a special secret room (i.e., Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, etc., etc.).
             Anyhow, before I go off on a giant rant about this topic, I may as well change the subject. I think people should come up with an alternative to cussing. I use words like wonky, wongle, pooter, and a plethora of other words  that replace the things I'd like to say. It's more fun. Things really have gone kind of haywire since the 1920's. Don't know what that has to do with anything, but I'll say it anyways.
             I really have run out of things to talk about. Sigh........
             What to do.........

The Plot Thickens......

           Everything is O.K. I've made friends, I've drifted from friends, and yet the world still turns around and around. I can't bear the thought, however, that one day I'll be old enough to be the one people look up to. Not literally, of course; I've been 5 feet and 1/2 an inch since 6th grade. Everything seems to be going quickly, but why does the world refuse to believe it? I don't even know who I'm writing this to. It's odd, really- I'm pouring my heart and soul for you to see and you don't even know how I look. I've always liked being a sort of mysterious person, but you're about to read all of these problems and things that go on in my mind like it's the newest issue of "TIME." It's truly dizzying- I can't put it together.
            Weird, isn't it? I just pounce on all of these random things and you don't even know what grade I'm in, or if I'm even still in school. Might as well start from the beginning, though. I'm a young person who draws, sings, and plays the bass in my spare time. Most of the time, my weekends go down the drain and then it's back to my everyday life. I live WAAAAY down south and enjoy nice walks on the beach (when I go to the beach, that is). Enough about me; let's get down to business.
             Mainly, this blog is exactly what the title says it is; the average life of a young cartoonist. I'll probably upload a few pictures on here for public viewing and you'll be welcome to post thoughts, feedback, and comments about them. Personally, I've never uploaded any of my art online, so when you comment, DON'T SUGAR-COAT IT. Don't be gentle (unless you like it). Lastly, don't post profanity- it's just tacky. Say whatever you want, but just censor it. 
             So let's do this! Time to launch this blog!
                                                   So the plot thickens.....
                                                                      -Yours truly........
