New Layout [Jun/21/06 at 13:11pm ]
[ mood | cheerful ]

New layout by Insomnikat and Roark28!! I simply love this one!!! Hino Matsuri's latest series and I simply love it - the manga, the art, the characters! Zero Kiriyuu is such a hottie!!! Currently my most favourite male character. He's definately the better kind of shoujo heroes out there compared to loads of other mangas. Kurusaki Ichigo comes a close second on my list.
Thanks insomnikat, for setting up the layout for me as well....you are a real star ^_^

Currently, I'm learning how to edit using Photoshop. I think I have got the hang of cleaning scans in general - but cloning and typesetting just dont like me. I keep locking layers and I havent the faintest clue as to how I do that? I only managed to successfully clear text from a bubble using the lasso tool and I have no idea how to do it again. I was merely experimenting with it - Bingo...I get rid of the text, but the next minute all the energy goes down as I realise I have no idea how I just did it. But Im still happy. I have wanted to do this for quite some time now, and finally as my university life is over - I can concentrate on these things for a while. Using photoshop has also perked my interest in learning how to make colourbars, avatars, animated gifs and layouts...I have tons of stuff already visualised in my head. And I cant wait to get started on those.

Its been a long time since I posted anything here, but last month was sort of a toughie. After the end of exams, I had to immediately house hunt for a while and move home. That took a long time and was such a tedious job. I hate shifting.

For now, I think I'll go back to photoshop. And if anyone has any tips or pointers, please do share them. I find them quite useful ^_^

Another update [Apr/30/06 at 14:54pm ]
[ mood | cranky ]

Yes!!!! Finally, got around to adding all my fanlistings here. Now this goes in the memories section, so I remember, what I joined...I havent seen some of these in like eons...o_0

This isnt the complete list though. It took a while to figure out codes and stuff, before I played around with the rich text editor and found the easier way of doing it. I am a bit cranky with the amount of effort I put in it and got no where, when really it was quite easy. So I'll update the rest of my listings later or as I feel.
I also realised that a few of the fanlistings I had joined have disappeared off the net...can't find them. I joined too many when I first started, and now I cant remember which they were. Such a pain...

Fanlistings [Apr/30/06 at 12:40pm ]
[ mood | working ]

I joined three more fanlistings yesterday, then realised there are so many fanlistings, I am part of, and most of them I have forgotten about. Not really an update or a rant as such, but I thought, I'll add all the fanlistings I have joined in the memories section. Once I have figured out how to use the LJ fake cut of course!

I am still upset with my mouseys :( they seem to have grouped up...Sleepy mice has mended itself, but I am still having trouble with the other two...I hope I can sort them out.

Much Better!! [Apr/20/06 at 12:12pm ]
[ mood | bouncy ]

This layout is so much better than the previous urks!! I like the look of this, although I might experiment with the colours later. Although I am still unsure about the blurb part.

I dont think I will write much in here as of yet, but I really want to set up this account properly first. That means, updating memories, as well as seeing if I can add more friends to my list, since I read a lot of blogs, and most of them always have the most awesome fanfics ever!!

So I will be playing around with this for a while. Easter hols get over tomorrow, and although Uni opens on Tuesday, I havent finished all my homework yet *which sucks, by the way* And exams start on the 8th of May...I have just about 2 weeks or less!

Oh, insomnikat, I added you on my friends list as I do read your blog. I am usually too lazy to post a comment...hope you dont mind.

Onto the memories section now...

Hmmm... [Feb/13/06 at 21:00pm ]
[ mood | sleepy ]

25th January...long time since my first post. *Yawns* Am sleepy. Getting up at 6.00 am in the mornings and travelling to Uni is bothersome. I want some stable incoming finance, my own place and a life in general.
Enough of the student life...*Still yawning* I wonder how long Ill actually keep writing in this blog.

First Post [Jan/25/06 at 18:53pm ]
[ mood | okay ]

First ever post on LJ after more than half a year's signing up for one. I must be the only person to do this. Still getting used to how the journal works, hence the basic look. I have seen really good blogs and backgrounds on this site, which I think must have taken quite a while to do so. However,I'll eventually get around to doing it. And putting some more stuff here. Note to self* Deadline set for updating this blog again, next Wednesday. See how far you go.
