I'm an open person, I really am, but some things just don't need to be shared publicly.

Leave a comment and tell me where I know you from or why you're interested, and then all will become clear.

I did my second time trial today and...lopped off 44 seconds off my 300 yard time! I am stoked! I went from 5:11 to 4:27! I'm not sure if I can take off another 44 another six weeks from now, but... HOORAY!

I think this LJ has met its end...for the most part, at least (because I still want a place to write some private stuff), but I've gone off and done my own thing, grew up, and ultimately, became independent.

Since I started this LiveJournal, I've gone through betrayals, heartbreaks, and heart mendings. And in all honesty, if I have your AIM information, chances are I'll still talk to you. But for now, I think it's time this has been laid to rest for a while.

Until next time! :)

To the person who left me a tf_valentine, thank you so much! :) I know I haven't been a part of the TF fandom in at least two years, but thank you for thinking of me. I feel so appreciated! <3

Untitled-2So, I feel kind of ridiculous posting this here, but someone asked me today how, when drawing, characters can present themselves as more masculine or feminine. While I don't draw heavily anymore, this is the way I wound up explaining this basic technique to them, and thought it might be useful for 
others to know (and how this works for male characters as well).

Now, I'm not just using Freeza and Cell for illustrative purposes because I love them, but because they're actually really good examples. Both characters express their presence by pushing their shoulders back, causing their chest to be pulled out. HOWEVER, if you look at Cell on the left, you'll notice his hips are pushed forward, which also shifts the pelvis forward. Whether it's intentional or not, most males walk this way (it's said because this shows off the "important parts" that represent masculinity, but that's still up for debate), mostly due to the fact on how men balance their body weight.

Freeza, on the other hand (right), has hips that are shifted back, which is how most women or feminine-oriented people walk, drawing less attention to that area, and thus a less masculine presence (which is why, when male-sexed, feminine-presenting characters "power up," their hips will shift forward, once again giving them a more "masculine" presence).

The rule of thumb here is that the back of the hips in a masculine character should form a relatively straight line from the shoulder to torso area, while the hips in a feminine character should form a very slight curve from the same area, almost like a parentheses (and this can be exaggerated or toned down to the artists' liking).

If you look in the mirror, this also creates (or diminishes) the roundness of the lower abdominal muscles (which gives women the effect of having slightly more rounded abdomens).

Hoped this helped! :D

Because it is strange and awesome and wonderful.  I wish I could tell you what the other five members (also in the video) of this eight-piece band did, but I'm not quite sure myself...

I've thrown up at least three times today, and my head is throbbing.  I'm not sure if it was the food I had at the oneg or whether my dinner had gone bad, or what, but...ughugh...
