I have made a dangerous decision.  I am at a loss this semester.  My war on graduation and spreading my wings and flying out into the real world is rapidly coming to a close, and there's still so many battles, or rather, assignments, to take on.  So I'm gonna be only slightly self-indulgent this time.  Instead of writing the opening statement to my most important class essay in a reverent, succinct and professional tone, here's how I wanna preface it:



Siddown and shut up, lady, 'cause it's essay time.  The frilly white opera gloves are off, and no more pretty words, no more frou-frou opening B.S about how I learned so much about this, because, honestly, I didn't learn but jack and squat, and Jack just left town, and no more reverence.  I'm reverent before no one but God, and you ain't Him, even though you exert a divine influence over that death sentence I mockingly call a grade.  It's the last month in the semester, I'm dead tired, I haven't slept right in weeks, I'm two steps from a heart attack: you're gonna read this paper, you're gonna give it, at the very least, a B-, and you'll be bloody grateful for it.

I cut my hand on the printer, so my blood, sweat and tears literally went into this paper.  You want academic honesty?  I only give you sources because you asked me to: I knew all this stuff by heart, and I always have.  So looking up sources to match that information is me throwing my time down the drain, isn't it?  I wrote this like I wrote the first essay I turned in for this class: about an hour before it started, and that time I showed up an hour late for class empty-handed, with some cockamamie excuse about the printer being "out of ink", that was me lying through my teeth, though I guess it's half-true.  I do own a printer, and it is out of ink, but the truth is that it's been out of ink for the past FIVE YEARS.  So I guess I wasn't really lying.

This essay was pumped out of my mighty, insane, reptilian brain like cheap metal works from an 1800's steam-powered Industrial Revolution factory, with my poor hapless inner child, that scared, pale, little boy from Lima who only wanted to be an animator and not have to suffer a million pointless deadwood assignments, as the underpaid, overworked waif behind those mighty cogs of thought.  This essay was fueled not by coal and steam, but by copious amounts of soda and tea, the rancorous tone which you or any other logical professor might deem as "unacademic" or "inappropriate" was powered hard by my love, my pain, and ALL OF MY ANGER!  Oh, and the punctuation was neat and orderly, just like it should be: no matter how angry, tired or broken I am, there is always time for good punctuation.

That said, sit back, relax, and TASTE MY FURY CONDENSED INTO THOUGHT.
  • Mood: Peaceful
  • Listening to: Diggy Diggy Dig
  • Reading: All the scattered debris 'round my desk
  • Watching: My alarm clock's hands moving
  • Playing: the game, everybody play the game of love!
  • Eating: Soon to go scarf down some HC food
  • Drinking: Thirsty as the desert sands
So I've not kept anybody updated in forever, I see.

Well, a lot has happened since then.  The year is 2014: the war of Veggieman against academia is rapidly coming to its conclusion, with academia taking many blows to the Vegetable Man (me).  My semester here at the U of U will be my last if I can get my classwork done well, and I shall, despite much of it being a pointless farce and a jape with grades.  And I have undergone rocky roads of late, what with my hardest classes all being this semester, backtracked assignments to yet do, the love of my life having turned me down earlier this year, and a couple of medical ailments that, though are not lethal, make things suck big time.

Artwork has been slow, but I still doodle from time to time.  I do hope to get much more work on here submitted, and soon, because I've since upgraded my software.  These days, I dedicate hours of my time and energy to math, hoping to slither outta that class with a decent grade.  But this is to be my final semester: the end of the war is near for me.  And once it is, I return home to Cali, to a hero's welcome…and several thousand dollars to pay back in student loans.

I doubt even this www.manu-et-sophie.be/D-F/Gold… would ever cover more than ten percent of student loans, and in the end, I'd rather a one-on-one with the dragon guarding it than having to confront the loan people.

At any rate, stay tuned, because I have a couple of really nice things in the works, I hope.
