    You Don't Want to be the Candyman

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]1. I'm in my fourth year at the University of Western Ontario 2. I'm doing a major in Conservation Biology and minoring in Japanese. After my third year, I took a year off because and went to Fanshawe College (in Canada, college refers to a technical school) and studied Multimedia Design and Production, which was great. But I'm back at the University now. 3. As you can see, the three fields I am studying are pretty different, which puts me in a real dillema. I really can't decide on one thing. So many subjects interest me, from the sciences to the arts (I also play violin, but at the amateur level since I only learned to play at middle school and highschool, not private lessons or those special music schools. I did apply to the faculty of music, but didn't get accepted). 4. I do like biology, but unfortunately don't have the marks to get into grad school, and no way in hell will I repeat those first year courses just to qualify. I've had enough trouble trying to finish my biology degree, and for now, a BA will do. I'm not really sure what my dream job would be, unless there's something that can combine my three subjects together. 5. I really enjoy photography and graphic design, and I love learning new languages. I just really enjoy learning.[/COLOR]

    Evolution vs. Intelligent Design

    [color="#004a6f"]I believe in intelligent design. Species may or may not have evolved, but either way, nothing that exists today is possible without God. This is based on faith. If people want to leave religion out of the classroom, that is fine by me, since belief in God requires faith. However, I don't think the theory of evolution has proven to be fact yet. Yes, there is a lot of evidence to support it, but we don't know for sure, so I do have problems when it is presented as though it is fact. It has been proven that species can evolve, so at least that part is a fact. But it has not been proven that all species came from one common ancestor, so I don't think that concept should be presented a a fact, just as a theory.[/color]
  4. [COLOR="#004a6f"]I love that Anime!!!!! Hi five!!!!!! Sorry, but I don't have time these days to make a banner (maybe in the future if you still need want one). But I just wanted to show my appreciation for a fellow Yakitate! Japan fan.:animesmil Oh and Kuroyanagi rules. My favourite character next to Kawachi.[/COLOR]

    Tea: Ew, Meh, Yum!

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]I love tea, but I haven't had the opportunity to try many kinds. My family drinks mostly orange pekoe. When we lived in Saudi, we always had Lipton, but we prefer Tetley's now. We drink so much tea. We have at least one pot every day, but usually 2 or 3 (or even 4 or 5!). I'm the main teamaker in my house, which gets kind of annoying with my mom and my brother always asking me to make tea. Apparently my hands are "blessed" and the tea only tastes good when I make it (yeah right, they're just too lazy to make it themselves!). In the summer we always add mint leaves to the pot, and in the winter we add dried sage. None of us like it with milk, except for my little brother. But I like to add lots of sugar. I already add 2-3 tablespoons to the pot, and the others like it that way, but I add an extra teaspoon to my mug (yes we drink it in mugs, ha ha ha). I enjoy other teas as well, but in the end, good old Tetley's Orange Pekoe really hits the spot. And it goes really well with our spicy arabic food. Especially falafels.[/COLOR]

    Stuff you miss dearly on OB.

    [COLOR="#004a6f"][quote name='boothten'][size=1]Activity in the Art Studio? haha, yeahhh. =/[/size][/QUOTE] I also second that. [quote name='boothten'][size=1]It's like this: every time you create something you wanna show it off. Hey, why not show it off at the Art Studio at OB! It's really popular, you'll get a reply in your thread with really detailed critique and constructive criticism in like 5 minutes. OH HEY, WAIT. :animedepr hahah[/size][/QUOTE]Yeah, it was pretty disheartening when I posted a gradient mesh portrait (took 4 all nighters and I got 100% on it in my illustrator class) and only got one response.[/COLOR]

    Trouble loading otakuboards

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]This has been happening for at least a month so far, if not more. Even when my internet connection is fine and all other sites load, there are many times when otakuboards keeps coming up as "page cannot be displayed". What could be the cause of this?[/COLOR]

    Art Photo Editor for Mac?

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]Photoshop doesn't come with macs. Macs are apparently just better suited for grapic designers. Photoshop is pretty expensive (about 700 bucks I think), but a pretty decent and free graphics editing program is gimp: [url]http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/[/url][/COLOR]
  9. [color="#004a6f"]I don't have much interest in sports, because I'm usually no good. I like track and field (I would say I'm decent at long-jump and sprinting, though there's a lot of room for improvement). I really need to work on my strength and endurance. I also get out of breath easily, so long distance running is very hard on me. I enjoy swimming mostly. It exercises so many of your muscles, and as an added bonus, you don't sweat![/color]

    Energy Drinks

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]My brother loves energy drinks, though my mom gets him in trouble when he buys them because they're bad for the heart. He let me have a sip of an energy drink once, I think it might have been redbull, but I'm not sure. It wasn't too bad in my opinion. It sort of tasted like minute maid's orange guava juice (frozen concentrate), but minus the texture.[/COLOR]

    Terrible Weather

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]I live in southern Ontario, so we get our share of blizzards and snow storms, though they never compare to tornados and hurricanes in damages. A few years back though, we got freezing rain out of nowhere, just after all the snow melted and we thought spring was finally here. Everything was coated in a thick layer of ice. It looked very pretty, especially on the trees, as they were starting to bud, and individual leaves were coated with ice. But the weight of the ice caused a lot of damages. Many trees lost entire branches (some of these branches landing on top of cars), and some of the smaller trees even split in two.[/COLOR]

    Wedding Rings

    [COLOR="#004a6f"]I feel like an idiot, because I still don't always understand certain customs. Is there a difference between a wedding ring and and an engagement ring? When a man proposes to a woman and gives her an engagement ring, is that the ring the woman continues to wear after they get married, or is a different ring used in the wedding ceremony? If the wedding band is a different ring, what happens to the engagement ring? [/COLOR]

    Art First attempt at a gradient mesh portrait

    [COLOR="#004a6f"][quote name='GTK']I thought I'd mention something about the illustration though. The shadow under the hat? It's a bit too big (I'm not sure how to describe it, actually). It makes it look a bit like the top of the hat is floating away from their head. It's just a small thing though. It's just a teensy bit too far out.[/QUOTE]Yes, I noticed that and I should definitely fix it. I just didn't have time! I wish I had more time to do this illustration but we were only given a week to do it and I was did most of the work the two days before the due date because I also had other assignments due. I had done a stupid thing for a first time gradient mesh portrait ands that was trying to put the eyes on the same layer as the face. I ended up using so many mesh lines that I couldn't blend the colors properly down where the laugh lines were. The hair was pretty difficult to do. My teacher kept shaking his head and tsking when I showed him the photo I was using, lol.[/COLOR]
