I'm running out of ways to open these entries inventively, without resorting to flooding your journals with animated .gifs and videos. Perhaps that's a sign telling me I ought to start cross-posting from Dreamwidth, if only for a change of pace.

I have a Russian competition coming up, so I've been working on four short compositions to memorize as well as a poem by Boris Pasternak. (Note: the English translation on that website is awful. Here is the one we were given.) Unfortunately, I've been having problems with the poem: my professor told me in so many words that my reading was thoroughly bad, and asked me to translate it myself to get a better feeling for its meaning. She did compliment me greatly on the first composition, though, so I'm feeling positive about the competition as a whole.

Time let me hail and climb,/Golden in the heydays of his eyes. )

Personal Entry No. 19  
I went on a walk yesterday along a long trail both in and out of my university. (You see, it branches off from the road leading to the Art and Architecture buildings, which are cut off from the rest of the school by a residential area. The acquisition of new grounds was brilliantly planned.) It was around 5:00 P.M., and it's a beautiful time of year; the whole area was resplendent to look at.

I'm glad I went--and I followed the trail to its end behind one of the Art buildings, instead of someone else's backyard like last time.

Sometimes people leave you,/ Halfway through the wood. )

We interrupt this page with a special announcement!  

You've likely seen this already, but this is a contest to determine the best 2008/2009 iconmakers of LiveJournal! Go nominate and vote for your favorites (especially if they're any of the wonderful people on my affiliates list).

Setting that aside, I've noticed so many problems in my second Fanbook submission that I'll weep with shame if I can't alter it or replace it. Hm. Anyway, here are the photographs of the cranes from before--six of them were sold, along with one luna moth, so their display looks a little bit more bare than it was two days ago. The photos aren't anywhere near my best work, but I hope they give you all an idea of what the display looked like.

The sun was shining strongly and brightly throughout the day, and this was what rolled in this evening. (I took two photographs and stitched them together, in case you thought part of the cloud formation looked strange.)

I've completely revised the lineart of that drawing of Clow, and have started up a new illustration of Yuuko--in case the Clow fanart doesn't work out, or another $200 are donated to the Fanbook project.

Please take a look--I'm quite pleased with it! )

And now for something completely different. )

Icon Post No. 2  
First and foremost: I apologize to those who weren't looking for more Syaoran and Sakura icons. In order to set things right, I'll be accepting requests here! As an example of what a filled request may look like, I've included all thirty of the icons I made for [livejournal.com profile] jlarinda to celebrate her predicting a certain plot twist in an otherwise unpredictable story.

Setting that aside, please enjoy the icons! If there are any changes or improvements you wish to be made, then don't hesitate to tell me.

[06] Angelic Layer
[09] Card Captor Sakura
[05] CLAMP in Wonderland Ex.
[07] "Happy Ko" from TV Senshi
[09] Miscellaneous (Kobato., xxxHOLiC, and Stock)
[30] Requested icons

Concerning the progress of the next icon and tutorial posts, a visual meme, Tsubasa, and a day at the Arboretum. )

I thought it would be best to keep this outside the cut--I haven't written much about myself, so we can consider this my introduction of sorts! (That is, if you take the time to respond. Respond, you bums.)

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks. No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a fannish opinion or a question about a fic of mine or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!
