When this journal has been up for a week, it means I'll be on my way to vacation!
I'm just freaking ready to get away for a while... these last few weeks have been hell, and I just want to get away right now. >:I
I don't think I can wait another week... oh well, let's try, shall we??

Just as the title says, my laptop turned itself back on. 
Let this be a lesson to ANYONE who doesn't leave their laptops plugged in. ^^

So, my laptop has once again crapped out on me. Hopefully, after a night of recharging, it'll come back on like last time. So whenever you see I'm online, I'm on .y phone until I say otherwise.

So, today I had my finals - or rather, my FINAL in algebra. 
And, much to my utter surprise... I failed. 
HOWEVER, there are blue skies on the horizon! I neglected to mention this until now, but come the Fall semester, I will be switching degrees to either Graphic Design or Illustration and Animation! 
This means I will never have to take another math course here at college until I get my degree!
I have never been more excited or thrilled in my life! 
Well, I can name a few times other than this, but this is a good one! Wouldn't all of you agree? :3

This is a bit of a venting journal, so make of it what you will.
Today I had a test in math class, and for the last few weeks, the teacher has been telling me that she will oversee me taking it personally, because I haven't done so well on the previous three tests. 
Well, I was super excited because I felt like I was really going to pass this one. I get to her office, she sits me down, hands me the test, and walks right out the door...
...
Do you see what the problem is?
I mean, granted, you're not supposed to get help on tests, but the way she said it made me think she would be reading the problems and walking me through. 
Nope. 
I started freaking out because I couldn't remember anything that I had studied. 
I'm so disappointed in myself right now. :(
I have to go back tomorrow to take it again.

So yeah, remember a few months back, I wrote a journal about how I broke my toe by accidentally ramming it into a bookshelf on the back porch?
Well, this morning, I went outside to mow the lawn. There was a rock that I didn't see in my path, because the next thing I know, I see a decent sized rock flying towards me, and it hit me right on the middle finger of my right hand! I went inside and bandaged up, but I was back outside weakly mowing the lawn within a matter of minutes. 
After about half an hour of profuse bleeding, I thought the worst was over... nope, it hurts to bend my finger, and it's all swollen, just like my toe. 
On the plus side, I feel much better today!

Yeeeeep...
I'm sick, and I feel terrible... I must have gotten it from either my mom or my brother. :/
I don't get sick that often, but when I do, I get REALLY sick. :(
Anyway, there's no way I'm going to class today, and I'm just going to stay at home, and relax, maybe attempt to get some writing finished. 
I'm so class to the end of The Village in the Trees Arc, I can almost taste it... 
Peace. <3

I know The Village in the Trees Arc isn't finished yet, but I thought I would go ahead and do this anyway, because I love doing these little fact journals. ^^

- All elves in Starfall were originally supposed to have tails and digitigrade legs, but this was abandoned because it would be too similar to a species introduced later in the series.

- In all honesty, Baldwin Barashell has to be my least favorite main antagonist of the series so far. I think I tried too hard in trying to make him an interesting antagonist.

- Baldwin Barashell is loosely based off of Spandam from One Piece in terms of appearance.

- There was supposed to be a different member of the Family other than Krebs in my original thought process for this arc. The original character was named Marfor, and he was meant to be a dark mage. I will definitely use Marfor in a future arc. 

- Hagalaz was meant to have a bit of a flashback as to how he came to work for the Lussio family, sadly, I never ended up finding a good place to put this flashback.

- The Wise Six were originally meant to play a much larger part in the arc's story. 

- The Wise Six are actually based off of the trees from Angry Orchard, which I started drinking whilst writing this arc. 

- As of right now, this arc is the longest in the series, with a total of 18 chapters, two of which are still to be written!

- A very obscure and crazy reference, but Bonaparte Barashell is based off of a character named Little Bonaparte from the movie Some Like it Hot.

- In the scene where Beaugard knocks out Lord Respen, the part in which the former places a flower in the latter's hand was a random thought I had for no reason. I thought it was funny, so I added it. 

- I actually considered Elder Goermling to be the arc's main antagonist at one point, revealing that he had been acting senile to fool everyone and distract them from his plans! Honestly would have been more interesting than Baldwin, I think. 

- Jilbiska, the sexy naga working for the Family, is supposed to have something resembling a South American accent.

- The more I wrote Cier, the more I fell in love with her character. She's just a big, lovable, pink goofball. 

- Bobka was supposed to reveal his voice towards the end of his fight with Tanya and Cier, however, I decided to keep him mute

- BIG one here... Enhanced are introduced in this arc, and don't expect an explanation as to where they came from, because even I have run out of feasible ideas as to how they came to be. So, they are basically like X-Men mutants, just people born with strange and unique powers.

- A soldier told Al that a majority of the Family's army are artificially enhanced. I meant to elaborate that these soldiers had blood transfusions with Bobka, giving them the same tank-like strength as Bobka.

- The Red Hat Ladies - Bonaparte's group of personal guards - are based off of a real life socialite group of the same name. 

- Beaugard's flashback sections are probably my favorite parts of this arc. 

- The final few lines during the fist fight between Al and Lailythe were inspired by the movie Snatch. 

- This arc ranks #2 on my personal favorite arcs list, #1 being The Corrupted.

- Aniel was originally meant to resemble Fang from Final Fantasy XIII. In the end, she became a fusion of Fang, and Nico Robin from One Piece

- Baldwin's walking stick was originally meant to be a sheleighly with a knife hidden inside. 

I guess that's all! ^^

I'm just minding my own business, sitting here and just browsing around, when I look at my fav folder and find a picture I didn't even fav - or even look at - sitting there! This is the second time it's happened in three days.
So... is anyone else having this problem??

So, early this morning, a humongous thunderstorm rolled through Missouri, and woke me up. I was still awake when my dad came into my room to tell me that we had lost power. 
I was so salty at the storm that I couldn't fall back asleep. XD
Thankfully, the electric guys are already here, and we only lost power for 2 and a half to 3 hours at the most... still, I wouldn't trust the milk and the left over raviolis in the fridge. 
XD
Anyway, the power is back on. ^^ 
It's been a long time since we lost power in this house.

Remember a long while back, I said that I started writing down the ideas for chapters of Starfall in notebooks?
Well, I stayed up last night, early into the morning this morning, finishing up The Village in the Trees notebook. 
I am happy to announce that arc 4 has an official ending, and that the next arc - The Cold Doctor - will start up soon, and very soon! Hopefully, I'm able to write at least a little each and every day from here on out! ^^
I would also like to give an update on life itself. 
Class is going extremely well, surprisingly! 03o
Math has never been my strong suite, and to see myself doing so well in the class fills me with glee. ^^
Anyway, that's all I have to say. ^^

I have really come to despise celebrity deaths, especially within the last year when we lost David Bowie - still upset about the loss of our Spaceman - Prince, Carrie Fisher, Alan Rickman, Debbie Reynolds, and Zsa Zsa Gabor. 
A few days ago, we lost Mary Tyler Moore, which, while sad, didn't really affect me in any real way. 
But today, we lost a REALLY good actor. 
John Hurt died today at 77 years of age. :(
This was an awesome, amazing man. He was a fantastic actor, and he will be missed. :(

Anyway! Starfall is still going strong. I'm trying to find the motivation to write whenever I can, even on days when I have work. I don't usually write on days when I have work, but I want to crank this series out faster! >:I
Anywho, that's all. ^^

Hello everyone!
Seasons greetings, happy holidays, and all that jazz!! :heart:
Now, I must say, this past year has been one of the absolute worst yet... but I won't talk about that. What I will talk about is the fact that it's almost over!
Can you even believe that?! I mean, geez Louise, this year went by fast!
Anywho, I hope everyone has happy holidays, and a Merry Christmas!!

So, the other day, I had the thought of how the current arcs of Starfall would be ranked, in order of my least favorite to my favorite.
I think the order, as of right now, is this...

4) The Sky Wall
3) Leaving Home
2) The Village in the Trees
1) The Corrupted

Just a random little thought. *Shrugs*

Anywho, just thought I'd mention that. Also, my toe still feels bad. :(
