All graphics-related posts will remain public.

All personal posts (including occasional crazy rants, random thoughts and personal picspams) will be locked. If you are interested in my demonstration of weekly craziness, please do comment in this entry. I will be happy to friend you!

Approximately 75% of my entries are locked - I used to make graphics profusely, but since school started, I've been posting more personal posts than graphic-related posts. So if you still want to read me, add me! :D

If I haven't talked to you before, please leave a comment about yourself! It's just to get to know each other a bit more see (and see how we could connect and flail together lol)!

I always add people back when they ask me if they can. So don't hesitate to drop a message here.

I really don't bite. I might pinch, but that's really just exclusive to someone named Nino. You guys know him by any chance?
Ok I'm sorry for not posting ever since I got back from the States.
But I need to say this.

It is predicted to be 22°C this next Tuesday??? WHAT?
And averaging in 15°C+ during the week... Really. Wow.
Montreal, I had forgotten about your weather mood swings.

We're a day from celebrating New Year's Eve. And well, weirdly I don't feel it coming. Maybe it's because I've had so much free time that I just can't see a party on the way lol.

Today I received my package from Amazon - I bought HitRecord's Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Vol. 1! It's such a cute book, you want to squish it. The only thing though, is that I believe  got myself a defective print - everything got printed upside down opposite from the cover, and I don't think that was their intention lol. The title page is at the end lol Almost like a manga should be read, but you still need to turn the book over lol.

>> >>

I tweeted back to Joseph (Gordon-Levitt, yes yes, the man himself) to see if he would reply, but I doubt it. But I'm just going to wait a while before initiating an item replacement with Amazon. Although this copy of the book is defective, I do find it endearing! But it feels weird to have to read from the end cover, and upside down. Messes a bit with my fascination with detail and paper. It almost feels sacrilegious to read the way it's printed! XD

Edit: I decided to keep it. Unexpected print might mark an year of unexpectedness? lol

Anyhow, I guess this would close my last post for 2011 if I don't come here tomorrow.

Wishing you all an epic New Year for new beginnings!
Welcome to the 2012 Year of the Dragon!!

Love you!!

Hello everyone!

I can't believe we are only a few days shy from Christmas. This Winter in Montreal has been pretty disappointing - because we don't have snow! We had a few snowfalls here and there, but nothing long lasting enough to coat our streets with fluffy white. Let's just say we had more rain than snow this December. I kinda miss it!

Remember this silly piece from two years ago?

My sidewalk is bare and boring. And I have nothing of that now lol.
Oh by the way, I didn't post about it, but all cards have been sent a little more than a week ago and some of you already told me they received theirs! So I'm glad it arrived safely. 

The New Year is coming soon! 2012 already... feels weird. But it's the Year of the Dragon! And it's my sign - so 2012 BETTER BRING IT lol. Any other Dragons out there?

Anyway, I hope you guys are all well!

Hello all!

I come back again after a long absence online, and many things took place since my last time talking to you! I can't believe it's already December. And you all know what that means! Holiday cards! Well... I'm pretty last minute this year, though. But most of you (who still haven't unsubcribed/unfriended me because of my lack of posting ^^;;;) know how this works.

Anyone who wants a little card over the holidays can just leave me a comment if I already have their info or pm me their address and I'll try my best to make all the cards in time (that's what I get for posting this so close to the actual festivities lol). I have a maximum of 18 to send though and I already plan to send 7. So just letting you guys know.

Also! New layout, obviously! lol After a two year break of my habit of changing layouts every month (oh... how the times have changed!), here's a fresh and colorful outfit I chose. Yes, yes... I know... Nino doesn't show.... I STILL LOVE HIM, don't get me wrong. But I saw this beautiful painting and I just needed to have it up. And I love Paris. As you all know hehe. I know it's a bit bare-looking, but I think I needed to have more colors to fit the holiday mood XD

Bye bye Dark and Mysterious Nino, welcome Rainbow Paris!

Apart of that, I can tell you I officially had my graduation convocation two weeks ago! I graduated with Distinction, which is cool. And I celebrated with friends and family. =) Most of you have known me ever since I started my program, and now that I've completed it, it seems like time flew by too quickly!

So I hope you all heathy and well. Good luck for those who still have exams!! Love you!

... Is this a post, Ruri? IS IT? IS THIS REAL LIIIIFE?

Yes, yes. After a year+ of empty promises... I come back with a post, full of guilty feelings, shame and well.. yeah. Sowwie, everyone? ^^; Now it would take ages if I had to recount all that's happened since January (omg, was that really the last time I posted?). So let's just cut to the chase here. My last uni year was... very disappointing unfortunately, buuuut hey. Not everything can sparkle and shine for long. You get ups and downs and you learn to live through it.

Aside of thaaaat. I've spent an incredible time in France (yes, France again!) with my family. And I got to meet with my fellow Arashi friends miung  and jenni06 ! They were the sweetest girls ever and it was very refreshing to meet them. Let's say a lot of funny things happened lol. 

I got to see one of the very last performances of a very popular French Musical - Mozart, L'Opéra Rock, and I also got to attend to the very Premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in Paris. Eight actors were there and more than 7000 people were in the stadium. I cried like a baby with everyone else and I don't think I'll forget this experience of cheering, crying and applauding characters that you have grown with onscreen lol.

I would have some pictures to show you, but it wouldn't do much. =P Sooo this is basically it.

How are YOU? :D What's new? How's the cat/dog/cow/sheep? Are you hungry? What do you feel like eating?
Oh and MAN time flies by way too quick. My bday's coming up this Thursday. A year ago, I was in AFRICA!

Anyway, tourlou my friends!! I'm still alive!!! <3333

PS: And wow, do I need to update my icons. I've been using the same ones for way too long. Especially this one.
PS 2: Do any of you have a Pottermore account? Cause once I get my Welcome email. IMMA BE HP-ified for realz. The name's Rune Hallow, everyone. Nice to meet you.

Hello everyone!

Like many people here, I wanted to make one last post before welcoming the new year. =) I'm not really good at making summaries and looking back on everything I've done without sounding cheesy lol I'll try! XD

But the major events in 2010 were probably how I had fun during my 2nd university year and how I had a teacher that brought in me a dose of motivation when I most needed it. Of course, there's also Africa, a trip that I will never forget - and people I will always remember. Nevertheless, the last run in the year 2010 has been very rough and punctuated with many incidents - cuts and bruises and frustration. I hope once this year comes to an end, I'll magically feel better lol I'm looking up, even though I'm not yet out of the troubles I'm in.

2011 will be a year where I'll take better care of myself and will reach for whatever's there. Many things I looked forward to didn't turn out this year, but it won't keep me from working at it. I gotta stay positive! And get back to the colorful character that I am. 

I wish you all good health, love, success, chocolate coated candies, some pixie dust and all the glitter and sparkles in the world to make it bright, shiny and magical!! 


Love you lots!! <3 <3 <3

PS: I shall post very soon on the beautiful cards I've received over the month. :)
