I just received a text message that was mostly unintelligible from a person who is supposed to teach English to kids...My faith in this program is dwindling more than it already was.

Today I was introduced to the students.
I got in good with the 'bad boys' in 3rd year. I'm set for this year. Awesome!
I also got a couple of 'nice body's and a 'cool face.' Teenage boys have low standards...

Luckily most of my phone was restored, but I'm still not 100% happy with this thing yet...
I wanted to leave early. Needless to say, my stupid phone has completely effed up and now I'll probably be leaving a touch late. So far this new iPhone has been nothing but trouble. It's good features are not outweighing all the trouble it's caused.

If I have to re-add ALL my phone book, I'll be pissed. I got about half of it in and that took a few hours. Granted, if I could download the phone book program for iPhone, it'd be easier, but I need a Japanese iTunes account...which I don't have, so I can't. Stupid iPhone. Stupid, stupid iPhone.
I just read a couple tutorials from fox-orian and feel, for lack of a better term, kinda brain-fucked. Seriously hardcore stuff there. Reading it really makes me want to try harder and practice harder at the scribblings I call art. His work is really awesome. And I mean that in the original intention of the word - awe inspiring. The way he talked about composition and perspective and balance, scale, depth, and whatnot really has my mind reeling. It's a good feeling. Makes me want to get a giant table and start to work extra hard on my works. I have a strong desire to draw something ANYTHING using what he's said, but I'm at work, so I can't...especially since I have a speech kid coming in a few minutes. This one thing he said: REMEMBER THAT COMPOSITION AND CRITICAL THINKING ARE IMPORTANT SKILLS THAT ALL ARTISTS MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH. is something that I really need to remember. I think that I don't think enough about what I'm drawing when I do draw. And I hardly ever have backgrounds. I think I am still at the stage where I need to work on my figures a bit more then start on bgs and whatnot while continuing with the figures. I know I have a lot of work to do on my drawing and I haven't been putting in nearly enough time for it lately. Perhaps I need to just take the plunge and not worry so much about if it comes out "perfect" or whatnot. Just doing it may be a good start. If I fail, at least I may be able to get some good critiques out of it and learn something.

I've only really had one boyfriend - how pathetic is that?

Personal training is going well. I can feel the effects even if it's yet to really be seen. My legs will be amazingly sore tomorrow I think. The training was on Monday, so I gymed extra hard today to try to make tomorrow not as terrible as it could be.

I'm slowly getting better I think. I stopped taking the anti-depressants since they were really screwing with MANY bad ways. I'm feeling less suicidal and more motivated now. Hopefully once they get out of my system I'll be back to normal even if it means I vomit more. I prefer that in multiple ways.

I plan on going to the doctor on Thursday. Hopefully we'll have good news by then. I'm still not 100%, but at least it's more than >50% like I've been for the past month+.
