+work doodle +thought doodle...

hey. got a quick picture you can look at that i did at work. used company logo for the hat... it's actually a weird... juice company. so that's actually a shot of juice mario's pooring. i ended up using this image for a weird puzzlebook our company threw together for the new training groups that come in. it was 'find all the bottles of juice' basically. the picture i hid the bottles in, are in a different version of this picture... so don't bother looking for the hidden bottles. i'm serious. DON'T DO IT!!

yeah... haven't been too keen on updating... anything, really. that goes for my personal life as well. just pretty much come home and crash... or go running. or think about how i should go running.

the concept of 'updating' my personal life sounds kind of funny for the moment. don't know why. i've got a pretty good understanding of where i'm at.. and how much time i'm not using to better that whole situation. . . (the part in that situation being where i don't DO anything.... heh.)

but whatever. cool stuff HAS been happening, though. it's just in a progressive aspect, it's a little hard to sense for the moment. i'm happy though, even though i'm not too thrilled about work (except the part where they give me large quantities of moneys) , regardless of most personal time being non-existent to organize or progress any thoughts that might be floating around, or sharpen the blade of my soul on a piece of paper, or a good decision. SO - i've gotta pick an choose. it's all about time management... and making time to do little things here and there to influence the whole 'big picture' i'm looking at, to help the vision get a little clearer.

i'll probably express this at a later time... but i just keep feeling like i'd really like some weird orb, or strange device that fits in the palm of my hand, which continually harbors all the feelings/experiences/thoughts/dreams/desires i continue to have. . . that i can take a peek at every once in a while. i dunno.. it'd just be a cool reference tool for ANYTHING you'd EVER do.

well. long story short, i analyze life way too much some times... think way too much about how to organize it all on paper, so i can access it quickly, and do something more with it. but... ultimately that doesn't quite matter.

happiness is a state of being, not a destination - if you freak out too much trying to get there, you'll never be there. it's not about THERE. it's about you BEING.

and..... i'm done thinking out loud for the night. hopefully you enjoyed the picture, at least.

RUSHED naruto contest comic

so.... in relation to my first post of some character sheets - second part of this contest, was to do a 3-10 pager, going up against somebody else, and basically show how your guys would've cheated on the naruto written exam. . .
so. i conceived the idea a while ago... didn't do the pencils till about a couple days before the deadline (march 31st), and shade and text were all done in about... 4 - 5 hours before the deadline....
SO. here's my WAY rushed 6 pager, to get all the raw content in. if you haven't seen this part of naruto... let me know if you get really confused. you probably will at first anyways - but i just wanna get an opinion of somebody who has no idea what this is supposed to be. that'd be cool. oh -ps. the other characters were from the character sheets mend from the guy i was up supposedly up against... i just sorta used 'em for my story purposes. (i think i was supposed to be more focused on my characters... but i think it all turns out okay)

judged on quality.. creativity.. and something else i guess.. can't remember. results later.

i stayed up till 4am making sure the dryer would stop so i could load some promised clothes in there, but apparently the guy was broken. so, got up at 8 the next day for a dentist cleaning.... where they basically carved out my teeth from a 2 year build up of plack.. (heh. i know that sounds graphic, but it's mostly an exaggeration. mostly. ) (oh- and i couldn't stop licking the backs of my lower teeth, cuz it was so fun to feel the grooves between the individual teeth) and then droned through work... got home, and laid on my bed at about 10:30pm.. woke up at 5am - the lights in my room were still on, which made me laugh.
woke up again and then 7:30am.. 8, and then 8:30 - for having slept so long.. i was able to account for at least 8 dreams - ranging from me living in a gangland war zone to being donkey kong in supersmash bros. brawl and beating the KONG out of everybody to survive.

all of which were products of the rushing wind effects of procrastination. not a bad sacrifice when you get to smack people off the screen to their death in the form of a giant APE wearing a tie.
