I am sixteen, going on seventeen...

Fri Apr 13, 2012, 5:05 AM


Actually, that is a lie. I turned seventeen on Wednesday.

Thanks muchly for all the birthday messages! A total of five people sent me the Arrogant Worms Happy Birthday song, which is a new record! (In case you're unaware, this is the song I send to everybody on their birthday.)

Anyway, I've had a very eventful three weeks, but after each day I kept wondering, "Is this journal-worthy? Hm... nah, I won't bother." That included a two-day engineering course, receiving a Gold Award at the National Concert Band festivals (as part of an ensemble, of course), and four days' work experience at Rolls-Royce. The past two days, however... I feel I'm obliged to write about them, no?
I'm seventeen now! Raaagh! :iconweekenddanceplz:

Here follows a list of awesome things that happened (that may or may not be related):

:bulletblue: I got Batman! DanananananananananananananananaBATMAN
:bulletblue: I used the money my Grandma gave me to buy Breakout Rocka 8-)
:bulletblue: I recruited a Feebas on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue. Awww yeah.
:bulletblue: Razziary made me an awesome Pokéball present: razziary.deviantart.com/art/Ma…
:bulletblue: Mum got me a French Horn keyring and a book of Andrew Lloyd Webber pieces, arranged for horn. I spent Wednesday morning blasting these out full pelt.
:bulletblue: I realised that I have two more days' holiday than I'd previously thought. Yessssssss.
:bulletblue: My sister got me a mug with Mario characters on it :D This has earned a place in my Facebook profile picture. That is how cool it is.
:bulletblue: She also got me a tiny blue rabbit plush thing, with a brown moustache. I've named him Mudkip.
:bulletblue: Razziary and another friend (remember The Flute Player From Orchestra from a while back? Yes, her) took me out to see the film Mirror Mirror, which is essentially a Snow White spoof that was much more entertaining than I would've expected =P And by that I mean that it showed a man pretending to be a dog and other people wearing ships as hats, but also had seven actual dwarves (one of whom was Asian!) and puppet monsters. Yeaaah!
:bulletblue: The website xkcd.com is selling a T-shirt with this on it. I'm going to see if I can convince my Dad to let me borrow some cash...
:bulletblue: As a present to myself, I downloaded the Mario Coin sound and made it play whenever I get a text on my phone. 'Tis awesome.

In other news, I may be doing my first attempt at a YouTube MOC review sometime soon. I think I'll start off with the four miniMOCs I have; they're the least likely to fall apart on-camera, right?

That's all from me. Have a nice belated Easter!

Oooh, tough question. I've narrowed it down to white and silver. White appears more often than it should on my MOCs, mostly because I can't not use it (white unicorn, white Yanmega wings, Yin on Niyyan, icey Avalanche, white-bellied swordfish...?). Silver, meanwhile, has all the awesome shapes which I can use (notice how Cheetah, Seahorse, Hummingbird and Cancer all focus on using silver pieces in abstract ways?). That said, I haven't really used it as a main colour in ages, so maybe white is the new silver!

What about yours? :XD:

Probably black, so many shapes, SO MUCH VERSATILITY! And it goes with most colours.

I almost said black before, but it's so hard to photograph on its own... ;__;
