Zombies, new phones and deviantart.

I don't know how I got into this habit of not blogging very often. It used to just be part of my routine to blog every day, and now over a week has gone by since my last entry. I have no excuses.

I have, however, been incredibly busy, regardless of whether or not that is a viable excuse. I have been really trying hard with school this quarter, working on ALL CAPS stuff with Luke for our upcoming album release, running the album art contest for that same release, working on a secret LOST project that I will be announcing next week, and preparing for my audition for Lena's Harry Potter musical.

So I got my new phone, the HTC Hero, about a week and a half ago, and I really dislike that transition time where you don't recognize your own phone noises. Today in my Journalism and Lit class, there was this super obnoxious beeping noise going on for about two or three minutes and everyone (including myself) was looking all around saying "What IS that?" Finally, finally I realized I had set an alarm on my phone for 9:30 and that the beeping noise was, in fact, coming from my bag. That was embarrassing.

In other annoying phone news, I haven't received a single text message, from anyone, in over two days. AND I DON'T KNOW WHY. I guess I have to take my phone into a Sprint store, but that's so obnoxious because I was just at one on Tuesday, when I asked them a million questions about the phone because I was really struggling with it.
Now it's legitimately broken. And that's annoying. So if you've texted me, friends, in the last day or two - I'm not ignoring you. I just haven't gotten your messages.

I'm having a ton of fun with this album art contest. I recently rediscovered my love of DeviantArt, and went on a rampage to FINALLY catch up with all the messages and notes I had received from people over the past few years (it had built up to about 2,000-3,000, which was ridiculous). But now the account is all cleaned out, and I have seen all the lovely things people have made with my stock, and I am loving seeing all the contest entries coming in!

A few minutes ago, the Director of Night Zero, the Zombie comic I help out with sometimes, stopped by my house to have me try on this white dress they're having me wear in the Vignette I am co-starring in in a few weeks. He told me it was an extra small and I started panicking a little, because I am definitely not an extra small. But low and behold, it fit me, so that was good news. I'm really excited about that shoot. I've never been in an actual story for the comic, just on the covers for Issues 1 and 2.

Stuff is still going well in my life. I like my classes, I'm not behind on my homework, work is okay, the album is going well, I still like Luke, Eia is alive, my house didn't burn down.. etc. Good things. :)

my friend recently changed their computer so that every time they sign on or off of aim, it makes a cat meow noise. i've been hearing meowing all day and searched my entire room for my cat before i realized it was just my laptop. sigh

My phone went off during a final once in high school. I was so scared, I didn't know what to do! I thought I would get a zero on it or something just as bad would happen. But my teacher just said "Okay, well, turn it off." That was embarrassing.

Nice to have you back in bloggy world. I agree with the new phone adjustment stage. I actually took my friend's phone on accident once because she had the same one as my old one. Well, anyways DFTBA and good luck with the phone :P

Oh, Kristina, it's so nice to have your happy and amusing blog to hide in for a little bit while my own life is too complicated to think about. Thank you.

And I'm going to try to get my sister to enter the ALL CAPS contest. She's the artist in the family.

I've missed your blogs :(.

I keep coming on to see if you've announced the release of the all caps album yet.

Emily said...

I'm SUPER excited for the new ALL CAPS album?
Have I told you that already? I might have. But it's no less true now than before.
OH, and thank you so much for retweeting the review I wrote of your first ALL CAPS album! It means a lot to me just that you read it! I kind of did a happy dance when I saw that you had. :D
I have to get a new phone soon. I'm looking forward to the having of it, but I'm very much not looking forward to that awkward transition stage. Bleh.

The only thing about your good things that's happening to me as well is that my house is still intact. However, your blogpost did make me happy. It's good to read about happy people.
My friends keep shouting "The power of AWESOME!" because I told them about Vlogbrothers... I keep ignoring them.
Have a nice day!

I play left4dead2 to the tune of I LOVE BRAINS

Dont have a cellphone...

and submitted a bunch of stuff for the contest and I'm totally not done submitting!

Ha, no worries- I'm with you on the phone thing. I've been there before too. Except my more recent problem was a little diifferet because my roommate has the same phone as me and we had all the same sound settings so it was super confusing. My phone would make a noise and I'd ignore it thinking it was hers, or her phone would make a noise and I'd get excited thinking it was get it. We've since changed most of our sounds so they're different but sometimes we both forget what our new sound alerts are.

...and then I found five dollars.

So, that's why you never answered my text.
And I thought it was because we never talk.

Oh, and just so you know, phones broke, gotta do my hair, etc. etc.
Ya. We know the codes!

I'm off (gotta get back to my stalking duties)HA!

I have followed your blog for a while now, but I've never actually commented. Well, there's always a first for everything. (:

Welcome back, Tina!
Aw, your poor phone. I know the feeling.

Doesn't it feel good to be busy? I miss that feeling of getting things done and having fun. I don't really do much of either these days.

On an only slightly related note - the captcha for my comment is 'flout'. I'm going to have to use that word in a sentence today.
