it’s okay! i don’t remember anything i learned either. Just today in the cafeteria, the people at the table behind mine were freaking out about “confidence intervals” and “t-tests” and shit and i couldn’t help but laugh and remember taking that class
12 hours of gorgeous sleep and I become productive at last
[I really did. I think it was to make up for the 6 hours of sleep the night before that had no nap plus too much working… the life of a workaholic. Gimme my paycheck.]
Tomorrow, I think I’ll take pictures & post the sketches I drew today :) If I don’t fall asleep first.
Well they’re only two, but there’re two others I can post that were drawn by Mr. Artist Dude aka Jeffrey Chen [yes I found out his name LOL.] that are in my sketchbook and mine. You have no idea how awesome I think it is hahaa, a pro’s art in my sketchbook….
No but that guy like actually just draws all day; he doodles everything… and all the time. I’m guessing he used up about 7 pieces of paper today, plus one oil painting he did in 2 hours. And I was like holy crap when he first started it ‘cause it was literally purple and orange puke splatters that he shaped up into rocks and a cascading waterfall. I’ll try and get a pic of that up tomorrow, same with the one he did yesterday, which was the big white house by the Great Falls entrance [waterfall = Great Falls too].
First he drew a black bird [I thought it was either a vulture or a hawk, not sure, I don’t think hawks flock together though, they’re too independent for that] amongst the rocks, and afterwards he showed me an example of how to draw the waterfalls there. Then he told me to try it for myself. Me, having never drawn water before in my life, was like ‘shit’. But I tried it out, and it turned out alright enough… I guess. Later, after he finished his oil painting, he looked at my piece and said ‘Hey not bad for a first time! Really!’. Talk about ego boost hehe. But yeah, he took a pencil and fixed it up a bit, and now it looks loads better and not so much like mine anymore, but I still like it…
While he was doing his oil painting though… I started getting sleepy ‘cause the sound of water is really calming. So I entertained myself, first by munching on saltine crackers finishing my version of the waterfalls, and then I started drawing him from behind haha. And then when he saw it later he was like ‘Wah when’d this happen? Just looking at the hair I know it’s me haha!’ I never got to finish it so that part sucked. Too many stink bugs. Too much hovering people taking photos.
I need to go buy a mini sketchpad, so I can keep it comfortably in my bag. Then buy HB hard pencils, ‘cause now I finally know how to use them. Then keep a stock of ink and ballpoint pens everywhere for doodles [ink is better for comics, ballpoint for generally anything]. And then maybe one day try oil paints ahhhhhhhh that would be so awesome…
The right side of your brain, up and a little behind your ear, what does that do? D:
'Cause I've been getting little stabs of pain there since 5G work today… It mostly happens when I like… turn my head quickly I guess. But usually when I do that/stand up too quickly I get sorta dizzy for like 5 seconds, but that's more of a low blood pressure thing I think.
I dunno… Holly says I could be dehydrated. I think I just want sleep.
I’ll find out tomorrow. Right now plan is to sleep until noon fuck the alarm clock.
Yesterday was kind of great. I had a whole day shift [I realize I’m turning into a workaholic : sleep, eat, work, nap, work, shower, fall asleep on computer, sleep….] but L started at 3. Morning people, in particular Miss Mean, are still annoying when it comes to us two… like please woman will you shut up I don’t understand why you gotta make comments like they’re funny actually I don’t understand what you’re saying in general but whatever haha…
Anyways, the good happy part. I was craving froyo SO badly around 4, except when I asked L if I could go on break and get some he went all ‘No we only have 2 people right now and I kind of need you here. Wait for night shift to come’. And I was all ‘Fine but now I’m gonna miss happy hour and have to pay more D: You suck.’ And he called me cheap. Hmph. Which is true but irregardless. 5 rolls around, night shift comes, and I beg pitifully ask again, and he sighs and tells me to clean the lobby and then I can go. Gracias mi mejor amigo I can’t say I love you ‘cause then Walter would go all AH HAAAAAA but I’ll hug you instead yayayay. [They like saying it in an obnoxious way, I’m good at imitating them hahaha]. I bought the guy a burrito in thanks haha.
Yocake doesn’t have the greatest froyo. Neither does the one on the first floor, but froyo is froyo and I still love it.
Turns out people working in that Home Depot lot get a uhh, ‘appreciate fellow workers or something’ 10% discount :D Which means my froyo didn’t go over $5. It was an excellent moment of my life. I was happy. A customer gave me a $6.20 tip. I made $47 in tips all by myself [average is 30s] with my dazzling smile and my apparently nice nose [weird customer was weird]. L applauded me and I was like ‘I know I’m awesome’ :D
Sunday, we are going to try and boil water somehow. Maybe take one of the metal pots and put it on the grill for a while. Pray the pot doesn’t melt and burn… Because for some reason hot water doesn’t exist in the restaurant. Neither does a microwave. There’s a fridge though.
Déjà Vu - the experience of being certain that you have experienced or seen a new situation previously – you feel as though the event has already happened or is repeating itself. The experience is usually accompanied by a strong sense of familiarity and a sense of eeriness, strangeness, or weirdness. The “previous” experience is usually attributed to a dream, but sometimes there is a firm sense that it has truly occurred in the past.
Déjà Vécu - is what most people are experiencing when they think they are experiencing deja vu. Déjà vu is the sense of having seen something before, whereas déjà vécu is the experience of having seen an event before, but in great detail – such as recognizing smells and sounds. This is also usually accompanied by a very strong feeling of knowing what is going to come next.
Déjà Visité - a less common experience and it involves an uncanny knowledge of a new place. For example, you may know your way around a a new town or a landscape despite having never been there, and knowing that it is impossible for you to have this knowledge. Déjà visité is about spatial and geographical relationships, while déjà vécu is about temporal occurrences. Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote about an experience of this in his book “Our Old Home” in which he visited a ruined castle and had a full knowledge of its layout. He was later able to trace the experience to a poem he had read many years early by Alexander Pope in which the castle was accurately described.
Déjà Senti - Déjà senti is the phenomenon of having “already felt” something. This is exclusively a mental phenomenon and seldom remains in your memory afterwards. In the words of a person having experienced it: “What is occupying the attention is what has occupied it before, and indeed has been familiar, but has been forgotten for a time, and now is recovered with a slight sense of satisfaction as if it had been sought for. The recollection is always started by another person’s voice, or by my own verbalized thought, or by what I am reading and mentally verbalize; and I think that during the abnormal state I generally verbalize some such phrase of simple recognition as ‘Oh yes—I see’, ‘Of course—I remember’, etc., but a minute or two later I can recollect neither the words nor the verbalized thought which gave rise to the recollection. I only find strongly that they resemble what I have felt before under similar abnormal conditions.”
Jamais Vu - Jamais vu (never seen) describes a familiar situation which is not recognized. It is often considered to be the opposite of déjà vu and it involves a sense of eeriness. The observer does not recognize the situation despite knowing rationally that they have been there before. It is commonly explained as when a person momentarily doesn’t recognize a person, word, or place that they know. Chris Moulin, of Leeds University, asked 92 volunteers to write out “door” 30 times in 60 seconds. He reported that 68 per cent of his guinea pigs showed symptoms of jamais vu, such as beginning to doubt that “door” was a real word. This has lead him to believe that jamais vu may be a symptom of brain fatigue.
Presque Vu - Presque vu is very similar to the “tip of the tongue” sensation – it is the strong feeling that you are about to experience an epiphany – though the epiphany seldom comes. The term “presque vu” means “almost seen”. The sensation of presque vu can be very disorienting and distracting.
One day, you look up for no apparent reason, and then you realize that they’re not as short as you thought they were, or just how big [and heavy] they are when you try to carry them on your back, or what they’re learning is suddenly so much more advanced than before, or that they’re using bigger vocabulary and telling you facts you don’t remember anymore.
MY BABY IS GROWING UP :’(
Actually today I just noticed her hair was getting long… but this does happen a lot.
