So, I know it has been awhile since I last posted in livejournal. Quite a bit has been going on, but I won't go into all of it because I doubt it's all that interesting, ha! I graduated from UWF finally and moved out to SoCal (Orange county-ish area) to live with Justin literally like 3-4 days after the ceremony :} hehe. I am so happy to have completed my Bachelor's degree in International Studies (minor in Anthropology), but I know I want to go back soon for my masters in either Anthropology or English (for journalism).

Anyways, I was fortunate enough to find a job at a theater a couple blocks from my house as a temporary job to pay the bills. I worked there for almost a year before the location lost its lease and had to close. I'm still looking for my career job, such as something entry-level at a NGO/IGO/IO or government/military job, but it has been hard without experience and a car (my car is in FL because auto insurance plus gas plus random maintenance would be impossible to afford at the moment). Luckily, Justin and I have a plan though. ^.^ Hopefully the Air Force is quick to find us something.

In addition to wanting to get into blogging again, I have been watercoloring/origami-ing more. My most recent watercolor (not complete yet but almost) is supposed to be of Lord Voldemort before he encounters Harry and his family. It's supposed to be when Voldemort is relatively young still, somewhat early on in his ascent to power, but he has already grown to be significantly evil. This is shown by the way the Dark Mark has "corruption" markings around the skull and most of the snake. In my imagination, the entire dark mark has full corruption markings and also corruption around his body and face to a lesser degree (it would be fainter and more "vein"-y looking). The spell he is casting is supposed to be green, because it is either avada kedavra (Killing curse) or morsmordre (the Dark Mark spell), but I know in the photo it looks blue... I am going to try to fix it because it didn't come out the way I wanted in general. Here is what it looks like so far:

I will post a good quality picture of the finished product soon... I will start posting my art on my Tumblr. Not much is on there now because I forget to update it like I do here (but I guess I have been busy ^.~).
