 1 ★ Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.

2 ★ Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.

3 ★ Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.

4 ★ List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection!

Great website to use to make your candy. It's best to crop it evenly (like 400x400 or 397x397) and then resize to 200x200.

MY CANDY (the one you get if you do a dare or ask for a treat!):

Goodness it always sucks when you go to bed dead tired and then... CAN'T SLEEP.

I was up at least half an hour with my mind just running complete circles around me.  It's a bit of an inner dialogue thing, but it started out on, umm... communism, then started mutating into that Khmer Rouge thing(Wow I didn't know it was so recent; 1975-1979) which I guess is still on communism but that especially sorta creeps me out.  Read up on it, nyaaaah. P:  It's really unsettling when you think about it: They basically marched everyone in like... a bunch of major cities in Cambodia to the country side to start their own rural communist farm but it wasn't exactly... a nice happy place(Hahaha Mrs. Johnson would've totally said that)  So pretty much one of those: 'HEY, let's control an entire country and force them to do what they want!' sort of things.

I finally fell asleep though!  And... woke up at 6:15.  Oof.  So I'm killing some time, don't feel like getting dressed for band oof!

I miss AP World History so much D8 That class was freaking AWESOME.  Mrs. Johnson is like, THE best social studies teacher.  We did so much stuff and honestly?  That was the class where I learned how to write an essay!  Not english, world history. xD  Aaaaah I want to be an aide for her next yeaaaaaar!!!!  And maybe take Geography, just so I can bug her!

I'm really tired and I keep getting headaches.  They piss me off, and I expect that they might be the reason I've been feeling like I've been crying or something; the lights are probably irritating my eyes and I'm probably dehydrated and just oof!  Like right now I'm really sluggish. 

So printmaking is a pain in the ass.  Scully said, y'know, when I wanted to do dry point 'I don't think you have the muscle for it!!!' in her Scullyish way that sorta intimidates you, but umm... that kind of stuff tends to motivate me to do it, just so I can be an ass and prove the person wrong. xD;  So, lets do all three dry point!!!!!!!


We use these sort of scratch awl things... but the one I use is like... a little piece of metal that's sharp on both ends and that's it--No handle or such.  Actually, those are the only ones she has; the other stuff in that drawer is more for wood working... not gouging plastic.  Dry point is basically scratching into plastic or metal or whatever, then making a print by rubbing ink into it, running it through the printing press, la de daaaaa.

I figured I'd be fine, yeah? Can't take THAT much effort; she's just trying to scare me.  ..... -_-;  For one thing, with the amount of force you have to use to scratch into the plastic AND follow the lines you need to, you could very well, hmmm... stab the awl through one side of your calf and through the other.  I'm not kidding.  And then, because of all that force(you hold it like a pencil, basically) it puts MAJOR strain on your thumb, index and middle finger.  My index finger was red and swollen last night. P:  They still hurt, the tips of all three those fingers.

And now once you've effectively murdered your hand, it's time to make the print!  The process is pretty confusing and such, I'll spare you the babble.  But... You take the ink, which is... thick, goopy, oil based.  It's gross.  Doesn't come off your hands with water or soap.  Put gloves on first, 'cuz you use your hands to do this. xD  Rub it over the printing plate so what you want covered is covered...  Now you're supposed to rub 90% of it off again. :)

So you take cheesecloth(sort of mesh cloth thing, I dunno) and rub away at the print to take the ink off.  It takes a lot of effort to do this, mind.  A good few minutes of scrubbing away at this, and maybe you'll have enough ink rubbed off where the print will work.  Do you know for sure? Nope!  Go print it. ;)

Half the time it comes out as too dark or too light.  So you have to repeat the process over and over, rubbing ink on and off until your entire arm wants to just turn to jello.  Then you'll finally get one and realise 'Hey, this is a print! It can't be perfect' and just... accept it for what it is.

And then that ink that I said didn't come off with soap? Yeah.  Take lotion.  Enough lotion to like, smooth out any callouses on your feet(gross huh?) and just rub it on your hands and HOPE the ink comes off.

Repeat 3 times. :)

I have one print done.  It took... 4 or 5 tries.

Goodness I am tired of having a headache!!!!!  I need to lay down, like seriously... lay down and drink some nice cold water.

Hahaaaa, I just realised part of my problem when it comes to making decisions and such(btw I found the scratch awl thing and proceeded to mangle my poor hand P:)

I look at both sides too much! Not a bad thing, persay... But pesky when you want to make a decision.  It's like a clause or something!  Why yes, I support this, but not in this case!  Yes, I find that appaling, but not everything is like that!  Always always always

I have a major headache right now and it pisses me off.  Right at the base of my neck around to my right templeish, but it's worse at the base of my neck and down my back(which is probably from me sitting poorly and staying up late last night slouched and reading...)  But goodness it sucks.  I hate headaches

ON THE PLUS SIDE... I did most of my chemistry packet and it isn't due until TUESDAY.  I am amazed.

Oh, and in art we're required to do this... Sister Cities whatever competition thingummy, and the theme is Your Path to Peace.  Extremely cheesy, but I already have some ideas even though they interpret the whole thing... quite loosely. xD;  But hey, what better way to stick a dog in there but supporting bully breeds? ;)  Doesn't that count?  Plenty of fighting over that, what else would I do?  It represents something I stand for, some 'path to peace' somewhere in that head of mine!  A nice happy pit bull who's got a home, yessir yessir!  Path to peace!!!

Here's to hoping Scully doesn't hate the idea!!!!!! Goodness Scully scares me sometimes; I'm glad she likes me!!!

But if we win, we get money and it goes on to DC where we possibly get more money and it travels around the world for a year P:  I doubt that'd happen for me thoughhhhh



This icon totally depicts what I feel like doing! Whoooo

I still hurt though!!!

I got bored and felt like changing my journal theme. P:  That slate blue was pretty, but it got boring.  Plus, I like messing around with colors to see what looks good. :)  Reds are particularly hard to figure out; easy to turn pink or orange or dull it.  -babble-

I always feel so strange when I say my favorite colors are red and blue.  When I say that, it seems like... I dunno! It just brings up those really ugly navy blues in my mind, or the blues that are JUST blue without any other color to them.  I don't like those blues.  I like slate blues or bright blues(acid triiiiiip!)  Not pure blue.  But with red, I really like most any red.  I like more... orangey reds than purple ones, though.  Or just plain red--Crimson, ya?  Greyed reds can look pretty cool too, but only if they're around other dulled colors. :)  Still, saying red and blue seem strange.  I usually just say that I like blue.  And really, I like most colors.  Not so much green, but green is just an awkward color to work with.  Natural colors are really pretty, but again--Gotta be reddish.  Blue browns are so bland...

I don't like pink, either.  Lighter reds CAN look good, until they turn pink.  D:<

So yeah, I got bored of blue.  Red is pretty. p:  I still might change a few things... it's hard to get things looking exactly how I want them!

I'm really hungry, but I guess it doesn't matter because I'm going to a pot luck in like... half an hour. xD  So... I'll eat then.

I don't want to do my homework.  I finished my Chemistry stuff, but I still have to read for english and answer some bullshit questions.  Not to mention sketches for critique, oh god -sob-  I didn't even get to work on my prints... x_x;  I'ma collapse

I need more time but I don't want it.  This weekend has been too long.
