Senior Student/Changing Usernames

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 15, 2012, 8:16 PM

Well, I'm finally a senior in high school. Weirdest thing ever. Even though I don't have very many friends at school (even though it's still more than I had my freshman year, thank god), I still feel like I'm going to miss it all once it's all over. Pretty sure that's only because of my art classes though. PFFT. Definitely going to miss my art friends and art teacher.

Anyway, I've been a bit slow on artwork, I know. It seems like when I'm not drawing, I'm writing. And when I'm not writing, I'm drawing. :lmao: . . . I have three art classes this year: Advanced Ceramics/Sculpting (first semester, two periods long), Painting and Advanced Senior Studio Drawing (each one period long, both semesters, all year round). Now, I can easily say that I'm comfortable with my Drawing class. Pencils, graphite, and charcoal are so comforting to me. However, I've never really painted seriously before (I've done watercolor, and a tiny bit of Acrylics freshman year for my Art Foundations class) and when it comes to 3D art it's just kind of foreign to me (despite taking a Ceramics/Sculpting class last year). What I'm saying is that it doesn't really come natural to me the moment I touch it; I have to sit there and mess around with it for days (or in this case, a couple hours a day, everyday during the school week) before I'm confident with it. I'm doing alright with painting. I think that's because in Advanced Drawing we're painting murals for our school. Helped me understand how to blend and whatnot. Annnnnd I managed to take on the damn pottery wheels and create three bowls. Somehow. It's really difficult. It's all about centering your clay and having a firm hold--no wobbling or you mess it all up. Had trouble with that, but I'm doing alright now. :lmao:

Pretty sure you guys don't care about that part. PFFTT.

So, I've been meaning to change my username for quite some time now. Mostly because PaopuDestiny was inspired by Kingdom Hearts, which I'm definitely not obsessed with it like I used to be four or so years ago. I mean, of course I'm still going to geek out over the new games and merchandise, but . . . I don't have my life revolve around it. Like I used to. :B

With that . . . I've made a list of usernames that I'm thinking about using. It's time for some change, and I thought now would be kind of good since my birthday's on Friday. Time to open the seventeen year-old door. Speaking of which, I'm just going to be turning eighteen the very first month of college next school year. That's a bit nerve-racking. XDD *dork*

I'm going for a quirky/stupid Casey-esque kind of thing. :O_o:

LittleSpaceStars (leaning towards this)
LittleBrightEyes (ironic because my eyes are dirt brown. PFFT)

. . . annnnnd there's actually a giant list of more, but I've kind of eliminated. But any suggestions or opinions would be greatly appreciated. :lmao:

Also, I think I'll update my ID next week. With a picture of my face. That may or may not be from the summer. Or maybe a more recent one if I can think of anything creative enough. We'll seeeeee. XDD

:iconohstopityouplz: <-- I feel like this is me. All the time. PFFT.

YEP! What grade did you think I was in? :rofl:

BUT SERIOUSLY. I can't believe it either. PFFTT. Not ready for this shit. I mean, I am (soooo excited for art college), but at the same time . . . nope. :iconincomprehensionplz:

ahhh, i know how you feel. Senior year is starting like that for me too. I just CAN'T be an adult so soooon. D8 jahsndhejuhd!!

I'm thinking of maybe changing my username too....mine is from like....years ago and it was a random name because I didn't think I would use it too much. :shrug: I might have to make a list of names too XDD

but anyways, glad your doing okay, :) I have 3 art classes this year too!

It's just so weird! PFFT! D8

Ahahaa, yeah! I mean, I actually really liked my username, and I went out of my way to make sure it didn't have any numbers in it because I've never been fond of using them in my usernames. It's just going to be a odd transition because I've used PaopuDestiny for everything. XDD

Glad you're doing okay too! And yay art classes! :dummy:

OH JESUS FallingOffMyUnicorn :lmao: I fricken love that. And ReasonsToEatRainbows is kinda genius. LittleSpaceStars is cute too ^^
LittleSpaceStars Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Bahahaha. I really do like FallingOffMyUnicorn. Not sure if it fits me though. Pfftt. Same goes for ReasonsToEatRainbows. Ahahhaa; I'll probably go with LittleSpaceStars because it's quirky and kind of curious, or what-not. Annnnnnd I like outer space because it scares the hell out of me. PFFT. :lmao:

A lot of the usernames I came up with sound like they could be band names or silly comics, or something. XDD;
ButterscotchWM Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Student General Artist
Really? I thought those two usernames described you well :lmao: Like, they describe your sense of humor, anyways.
LittleSpaceStars Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Pfftt. :iconohstopityouplz:

I mean, I guess they kind of would, considering that I made them up. PFFFTT. MAKES SENSE, CASEY. DERP.

Choosing a new username is freaking difficult, especially after having the same one for well over five or six years. Annnnnnd after using it for practically every website. :lmao:
ButterscotchWM Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh man :lmao: Yeah, I've had my username for everything for like 6 or 7 years, too. That's why I can't even imagine changing it ^^; The only other username I've made up that I use here and there is EllieJelly. Ellie, coming from my name, Elizabeth, and jelly just cuz it rhymes :| I also like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a LOT.

BY THE WAY - I forgot to comment about your stuff on school...

CONGRATZ ON BEING A SENIOR! :hug: I'm actually really happy that you think you're going to miss high school once it's over. When I was a senior, I KNEW I wasn't going to miss high school, and I just wanted to gtfo. I'm a sophomore in college now, and... I STILL don't miss high school LOL! I really wish I had as awesome of a school as you.... I mean YOU'RE allowed to take more than one or two art classes in one year :iconwthplz: Thats not fair. I could only take one art class my junior year, and one art class my senior year. The only way I would have been able to take two art classes in one year is if I were to not take art my junior year, and leave both of them for senior year.

Ahahaaa, that's so awesome! I like EllieJelly. :lmao: . . . I dunno, just picking a new username is so weird. Change is weird. Pfft. I'm just really glad that we can change them now though, instead of having to make new accounts. I mean, I'm not too fond of my old artwork on here, but I still like having it here. XDD

Oh, pssshh! :hug: I dunno. I've had plenty of bad times in high school, especially my freshman and sophomore year, but I kind of made up for it my junior year, and now my senior year. Mostly. I just really wish I could go back and relive my freshman and sophomore year. I'd take a completely different approach. Not only do I feel more comfortable with myself, but . . . I'm also not as depressed. Pfft. I was seriously so stupid my freshman and sophomore year. Augh. I wish I had talked to people. And actually tried. I nearly failed my math class and World History, and I had a C in my Spanish class, only because I did the homework and did this foreign week project pinata that was worth like, 100 points. :iconwthplz: . . . if I had known that my freshman and sophomore year would affect my cumulative GPA I totally would have tried. I had like, a 2.2 freshman year, but over the four years I've been here I've managed to bring it up to a 2.9 . . . and after senior year I'm sure that I'll break it into the 3.0's. Thank god. :lmao:

Nothing wrong with not missing high school though! Honestly, it doesn't matter. Pfft. I mostly don't like it because there's not enough people appreciative of art, you know? When art's a big part of who you are, it's hard to get people who don't appreciate it to understand you. D8

What's most important is that you love college. That's the awesome part. :B

Yeah, dude, what's up with that? That's bullcrap. Pfft. Only one art class? WTF. THAT'S AN ABOMINATION. I'd seriously be lost at school if I could only take on art class. The art room is like, my home. It's my sanctuary from the rest of the school. :iconwthplz:
