I have a weird taste in games, In the past week, I played a bit of Dragon Quest IX (mostly in school). Lately I’ve seen a blue and white dog in Best Buy, when my boyfriend and I gone there in the past few months. I (oddly enough) started thinking about it in art class. I don’t know why. And, we were looking at fresco and sculptures in Rome.

It’s called a Wappy Dog. It’s made by Activision, which was bought by Blizzard (I believe). My Wappy Dog is named Wappy, and it’s a girl. I determined this by Wappy’s voice when I converse with it. The game “box” contained an interactive Wappy Dog, the game on DS and a doggie bone stylist. I got it at Walmart for $50. I have to thing is the stylist really worth the $20?!

Anyway, I checked my grades for income tax on Thursday. It was the last thing I did before going to bed. I got a 30/30!! I was so happy and excited. I went to bed happy, yet had a nightmare all in one night. But I believe I got through it. And, it now seems far away.

Art Write Up #1

I went to the California state treasury yesterday for four hours, looking at all the nooks and crannies. It was very interesting to me, and to see things that we’ve (my dad and I) never seen before.  My dad is very knowledgeable when it comes to various surroundings, and places one might go (i.e. San Fran). But, he was my tour guide nonetheless.

Our adventure started about one PM (we had stopped at a few places first, mainly to get food for me; I haven’t eaten anything since the night before). We walked around the building first. The building has many names besides State Treasury. It’s named State Building 1, State Building 2, and some other name that I cannot remember. This is all besides the State Treasury (of course). Plagues inside the State Treasury say it is called State Building 2, a piece of paper inside the front of the building says it’s called number one.

Anyway, we started up on the sixth floor (which used to be a café in the past), but we couldn’t go into it because we’re not allowed.  It’s a file room now. Then we venture into the fifth floor and into the pediment, but was somewhat disappointed that one could not get close up into the statues of the pediment, because of the offices— cubicles. But, I was in the pediment, and that’s what counts.  We saw pictures on the wall that pertained to the construction of the building, and its early days.

We went inside the Volute’s of the building, and it really was impressive. Each lobby (for the staff) was incased in marble (even the men’s bathroom). We also went down into the basement, where the western staircase was also in marble. But, floors five through two weren’t really impressive anymore because of the renovations done on the building. Yet, they still had a lot of marble drinking fountains which were not in use.

The lobby was decked out with 6 square columns, and sixteen Doric columns. It was very spacious. I know I’ll have to probably come back and take a look around at them again. The floors where made out of marble as well. The outside had 10 columns, which were Doric but they’re coverings were Ionic.  And, each entrance held two plagues (which eight are unaccounted for according to the research that my dad did). And, the outside had two statues made out of marble I believe.  The whole building (except the first floor) is made out of Terracotta (clay, brick like material). The first floor was made out of granite, which was expensive.

The Adventures of Super Fammy consisted of 13-15 stories (two seasons in my mind). Between those two “seasons” I’ve added new people (i.e. Karth and Karen).  Around the time I stop writing about these characters, I started to focus more on my future, and what I needed to do to become successful in life.

But, over the years I’ve tried to reform her. And, even still I want to change a few aspects about her, and the characters that I’ve grown to love (enemies included).  I want to write a book or make a game with them in it. But, my time is limited nowadays. I will always remember them though. At least the eight original Characters that come to mind—Camille/ Fammy, Butch/Ephy, Kris/ Windera, Selena/ Earthera, Jade/Icerella, Helen/Fira, and the youngest cast member: Rei.

Between those two seasons, if I remember correctly I started on a story called, In Her Life, in which Kris was kidnapped and Fammy and Ephy have to try to save her… but it was never finished. Honestly, most of my original fiction stories are. And, some I would actually like to rewrite and finish (for once).  And, I would like to write a great story of Super Fammy  one day. Well… once I rename her of course. I can’t leave her as Fammy because I “adopted” her name as my own handle (to the point where even my real life friends call me that).

[Also, on a side note, I have a blog on sanriotown.com and at the moment it’s not being use for anything at the moment. It’s suppose to be use as a original fiction blog. But, I haven’t written anything for awhile (hoping this will change soon). So, to keep it updated I’m going to post a few of these blogs on there to keep it updated.]

I would like to write a new Super Fammy [origin] story. It has been years, since I went down this path. The last time I probably wrote about this was in 2005. Since then I adopted the name, “Fammy”. Actually, I adopted the name earlier. I played Endless Online for awhile after I moved up to Rocklin (from San Jose). I wanted to name my character Fam, but that name was to short since the game wanted 5-6 letters for a user handle thus, Fammy was created. For those curious, the name “Fam” was a name of a character that was half-cat, half-human in “Ruin Explorer.”

A few months later, and a handful of guilds later I started writing. Writing has been my fashion since I was in high school. Although, I mostly wrote fan fiction. I don’t anymore, at least I try not to. I started this story of Super Fammy. She lived in an apartment complex, with a new neighbor (as of 2009?) Karth and Karen. Their last name escape me, because they weren’t apart of the original batch of characters.

Fammy’s side-kick was a police officer named Butch Sanders, who lived with his girlfriend Char Phillips. They were family friends. Butch always helped Camille (Super Fammy’s identity). Camille did have a boyfriend/husband at one point in time depending on which version the reader had read it would be Dobie or Aaron. It wouldn’t matter the said person would have been evil. Char’s role in the story was support. She would watch Camille’s daughter, Rei– who was artificially made. Then there were the four sisters- Kris, Helen, Jade and Selena. Kris and Fammy were the youngest– in the story. Helen and Jade were the next youngest. They were in college. The oldest was Selena. Her sisters watched over the elements- Fire, Water, Earth and Air. Butch could see into the past/future and the present. While Camille and power over love… I think.

I’ve been reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins lately. In the first ten pages I had felt something for Katniss and Gale already. So much that I cried when I continued to read Chapter One, and Three. I haven’t read in awhile so I’m happy that I’m experiencing these emotions again. Especially in the hype of everything.

I turned in my Business 9 test yesterday, and I don’t think I did well on it. It makes me sad, and I know I have to work extra hard in that class to pass. I didn’t do so well last time. But, I won’t give up. Not this time around.

I have a quiz next Tuesday, and I need to start to study for that and the midterm (which is two weeks away from Thursday). We’ll see how well I do then. We haven’t even gotten our quizzes back from the last quiz yet. Oh well. Today will be a busy day since I’m going to play catch up for the Art Journals, and get a day ahead in Income Tax. Although, I do miss accounting classes…

Life

Life has been going good. I’m in Business 09 (Income Tax) and Art 1A (Art History) this semester. This is suppose to be my last semester, but I don’t know… I kind of messed up the certificate process. I had other things in my mind when I was filling it out. Secretly, I hope that it works out in the end. But who knows. Plus, my mom thinks she’s helping me, but all she is doing is causing me me stress. It kind of sucks. I know what I’m suppose to do, and yet she never helps.

I started playing Wakfu this weekend. It’s a free to play mmo that requires you to pay for features that I believe should be free. I did enjoy my experience with the game though. It just sucks that you have to pay to be able to level up professions…

I’ve bought Kingdom’s of Amular in the past month. I’ve only played roughly about twenty hours of it. I’ve been busy with school, life and whatnot. It took me 11 or so hours to finish the quest in the first area (that was from the demo). I choose a female Dokkalfar for my first run through of the game. I like the fact you can go a diplomatic way (in some quest) and you can say, “screw it all” and become evil.

Other than that there’s nothing else to say. I’m hoping to write a story soon. Maybe. At least that’s what I’m hoping for during Spring Break.
