Back from elsewhere ish.

Hello! I know,i have been terrible at keeping this thing up to date, but I'm back now! So, first of all, I would like to say that I recently went to Wizard World Chicago and it was a blast!! I had plenty of fun selling my art and seeing all the cosplayers and vendors. In fact, I'm going to be doing a post about my top ten favorite cosplayers from Wizard World Chicago. They might be clever cosplays or epic cosplays or just cosplays that I really liked. I'll also post about some of my favorite things about the con, and other general stuff.
Anyway, For now, I just wanted to say thanks!

An Agonizing Wait.

Anyone who knows me in life, knows that I am always desperate to go somewhere. Mom's going to the bank, I tag along. Dad's going to go get milk, I'm in! A friend's going to do a mundane task, let me come too! Sometimes it gets so bad that if someone won't let me come, I nearly fall to my knees, begging and pleading "Take me with you!!"

Now that I can drive myself places, it's not quite so bad. If I need to go, I can. Ok that's a lie. Under my own power, with the ability to leave at any time, it's worse than ever.  I mean, going to the bank, or the library is fine, but it's just not enough. It's kind of why I started reading National Geographic Magazine a while back, so that I could see other places. It wasn't as good as actually seeing them, and mostly it just made me even more desperate, but it was something.

It's kind of funny. For a long time, there was this funny feeling in the pit of my stomach that popped up whenever I looked at a map, or whenever I thought about traveling. I used to think it was like dread or something, but that can't be right because I love going places. Then I realized it wasn't dread. It was longing. I longed to go places. I longed to see them, feel them, smell them, hear them, breathe them. I was desperate. I wanted so badly to go to another city, another state, another country, to see everything I possibly can. I wanted to experience everything. I really hope that maybe I will.

In June I'm  going to go to Belize for a mission trip. Just thinking about it brings that feeling back, that lustful feeling. I am so anxious to go. Waiting for my passport, for my tickets, for June to come, is agony. Once I get there, it will only be satisfied for a bit. Once I get a taste of traveling, of true international traveling, I won't be able to get enough. I will never be satisfied by simply going to a library or the mall. Even now before I have even left it isn't enough. I am homesick for places I have never been before. 

I know that to some people, that's the weirdest thing ever. 'How can you be homesick if you don't even live there? She's got to be crazy' I don't know how, I just know I am. I am so excited, it hurts. It hurts to think that I'll be leaving this country, and going to a completely different one. It's just incredible. I'm going to another country, in another continent! It's so horrible too because, every day, every hour, every minute, every second; it is getting harder and harder to wait.

So sorry!

I have not posted in forever! I do apologize for the months of me not really paying attention, and/or forgetting completely that I do in fact have a blog. I'm sure you all don't care in the least what I've been up to in the last few months, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

I've been working quite hard to up my art abilities, and I must say, my current art page needs a redo. (Can I just burn all that? Please?) I will probably post some pics of new art later, if anyone actually reads this mess that is supposed to be a blog post.

I have somehow managed to get into collage. Crazy right? I'm taking an American History class (Blech, I know, but they won't let me take the actually interesting history with out it :P)

I might (probably) be getting a table at Planet Comicon, so come check us out there, unless you're in another country or something, in which case don't bother, thats way to far for a comic convention. If you happen to live in the KC area, then do come, because it's actually a ton of fun, albeit a bit crowded.

I also got a really cool printer. I'm sure you are super excited about that. (Yay. Printers.) But It's freaking awesome and huge! I can scan my bigger art without so much hassle, AND It scans in high resolution so huzzah!

Oh, I can drive now too, I have a license-y thing. It's pretty cool. I can just pop over to the library whenever I want! I know right?? Awesome!! Also I have a Twitter, though I don't really know how to use it.

And that's what I've been up to! Enjoy you're Sunday!

I am a fangirl. I make fan art. I write fan fiction. I quote, I post, and I tell everyone about things I like, on Facebook, Instagram, Wattpad and my blog. It's part of being a fan. We love something so much, that we want to make it ours, and we want to show others. We say "look, I love this character so much, that I drew him" or "here, I love this couple so much that I wrote about them being together" Right now, that's fine, as long as you don't sell it. But right now, there is a bill that is being written, that will make all of that go away. It will make it illegal to be a fan.

When I heard about this, I thought "it can't be true" because, why would they punish the fans, who love things so much, that they get others to love them too? Why would they do that? But then I did some research. I found out, it's true. It would make things like Wattpad, Devianart, Fanfiction.net illegal, it would make it illegal to post pictures of favorite characters. You could end up in jail for five years for posting anything like that.

Not only will it take away public fan art and fan fiction, but it will also force several websites, such as Etsy, Flikr, Vimeo, Tumblr, Pintrest, Wikepedia, Facebook, Twiter, YouTube and countless others to over censor or even shut down. Blogs and Wiki's could be shut down as well. Music covers could become illegal. You could be arrested for uploading a video of you singing your favorite song.

Blogs and other websites like this will be blocked from search engines, and you can be fined if anyone makes a copyright infringement complaint against your website. If someone even posts a coment with a link, not you, someone else, you and your website, youtube chanel, blog or anyother social media site will be fined or even jailed.

Because of the censorship that SOPA will bring, it will make freedom of speech impossible on the internet, and, wait, isn't freedom of Speech part of the First Amendment? It's not 'Freedom of speech so long as you don't mention anything copyrighted' it's freedom of speech. And SOPA is taking that away. So don't let SOPA (or PIPA) Take away out rights as people or as Fans.
Don't Break The Internet.

Mt Tenth Grade Reading List... Thus Far

So today we had our anual "search for educational materials" day, in which my mother handed about twelve books to each of my sisters to be their school reading lists. I was handed four.
My reading list this year is rather short (mostly because I've already read most of the tenth grade reading list that high schools recomend) so my reading list consist of:
1. The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe by Edgar Allen Poe
2. Night by Elie Wiesel
3. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
4. Watership Down by Richard Adams
 There's only one book that I don't really care much for (I'm sure it's obvious) but I'm also going to take a British literature class after my first semester, so I will have more to read,  I just hope it's more interesting than American literature (Puritans... *shivers*)
Also, I have to do a study guide on, wait for it..... *drumrooooooooollllllllllllllllll* Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing! Yes, I am in fact doing a study guide on a book I read in the second grade. But it's because I'm supposed to be helping my sisters with their study guides, so I ended up with the easiest book. (The others where To Kill a Mockingbird, which I have read, and Number the Stars, which I have also read)
But I am also going to be studying Latin, anatomy, speech, computer science, art, poetry and Spanish (another blech) along with my core subjects. I'm most excited about doing science, cause I didn't do much science last year, but this year I get to do EARTH SCIENCE!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!
Thanks for listening to me talk about my school work, I'm sure you don't care, but I do! So enjoy the rest of your summer, and Bye! Bri π
