Now that I am a sixth class girl, the highest year in primary school, I am depended on a bit more. More jobs, more responsibility. My favourite job would have to be minding. What's that? Well, from Junior Infants to First Class, they need to be minded as in, opening juice cartons asking to go to the bathroom, being entertained, made happy etc.
There is one little girl called 'Liz' (or something similar which I am not saying for privacy reasons~) and so far I've been just playing with her and her best friend called 'Cate'. But then around 2 or 3 days ago the 2nd class girls began to play with them and they seemed to prefer them over me. For other reasons I wasn't able to do minding yesterday. But I was today and as I waited by the steps for the Juniors to come down Liz ran straight for me (apart from unwillingly hugging a second class twit) and hugged me. Then when break was over Cate blew me a kiss and hugged me. We're not supposed to let them get too clingy, but so what? I love the little monsters.

No Flattery Included, but this is slightly what Liz looks like ... slightly. 

 Anyway, it’s kind of sad for me. I was doing a huge job which required going around most of the school with my friend and felt a hint of nostalgia. Walking around thinking ‘This is where I lined up each day’ or ‘God, remember when…’ kind of wanting to feel the same sensation, or more, the same thing, you felt when you were of that age. I remember talking to minders who were the age I am now. Although, in my memory they seem like 15 year olds. Though, I am happy for the moment. The tears have yet to come.

Recommendy Wednesday!

I'm going to start a thing called 'Recommendy Wednesday' where, basically, you choose one thing to recommend each Wednesday. It could be a CD, a book or even a blog! Just post this button on your post and recommend away!

 Okay, so to start us off I'm going to recommend a website called '' basically, it supplies (mainly) free blogger templates that I often use. One of it's features is that it doesn't have a navbar at the top. Although a lot of people would like it, I don't but that's not a problem! Because all you need to do is edit the HTML (or w/e it's called) and find the correct section and the remove it. Ta-daaaa you've got your navbar!  The designs are really nice and suite everyones needs! I would completely recommend!

  I got a diary. Actually it’s more like I had a notebook for many years, used it for piano even though it was too good for piano. Then quit piano. Then it lay in my car for quiet some time. Today, I got it ripped out the used pages and started a diary.
 A diary I hope to keep going and not ever give up on until it’s full. Heck, I’ve already used up four pages. But I was merely introducing myself. Not everyday will be exciting. Though, as simple as a little girl hugging me or the most delicious biscuit I’ve ever had, I could write that. A wave, a smile. A swear, a sorrow. Diaries are made to take abuse. Well. No. But they are made to be flooded with laugher or cries. They’re just your friend. And they’re just for you. J Nice thought, isn’t it? Well, provided you’ve got a good hiding place for it if it doesn’t have a lock. Which mine doesn’t... I have yet to find a good place for it. Anyway, I shan’t be telling you what goes into it. It’s for me. It’s for me now, and me then. Maybe a select few pages to friends and family in the future. But, not for now.

Happiness is...

 Well I've just done a linky for uhm. 'Happiness is...' on Pastor's Girl's Ponderings. So I've got to say what happiness is. Two things for today...

Happiness is....

Working on an art project

Happiness is...
 Pencils (okay, that makes no sense, but anyway)  

 As I kinda said in this post, I'm working on an art project. A manga drawing. I'm not that good yet but I really wanted to draw a 'warrior' from ancient Rome. And I did. I drew the circle made it head shaped n' pretty. then the arms, legs and torso were made with various shapes, then gone over and é volia. My Roman. Then I inked it using my calligraphy pen, that is until, it exploded all over my fingers. Then once it dried (not that it took long) I began to rub out the pencil lines and fill in any gaps my pen forgot about with a marker similar in width. Then I coloured him in, drew a background, coloured a good bit of  it in and now I've got to finish that. All of the above took maybe 2 1/2 hours >.< Another, I'd say, fifteen mintunes later or tomorrow and it will be finished. Then I'll upload it to my art blog and you can see it. Pwease follow >.< It's not about dolls for those of you who don't like them. And even if you do like dolls, can't ya like art too? ... Please :D Anyway. It will be up maybe tomorrow afternoon. No promises though. ~May

Confide in Books

 I love reading. I don't have a verity of books though. I usually love one author and get all their books then when I'm finito with him/her I find some other one that I adore. I've still got a few books left by the author I like now, but after that it's spending another bloody 200 euro on books that I'd just love to spend elsewhere. So, I want to join a library. I usen't to like the idea because 'other people' read the books, sneezed, coughed whislt reading but still. I don't really care. If I love a book enough that I borrow from 'the library' I'll buy it. But I haven't joined one yet. I want to so badly. There are books I could take out; Mockingjay, The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson. Ones that I'm not sure I'd like but would love to try.  Also I can take out some Manga books on drawing and stories. Libraries just sound amazing. There isn't one in walking distance, but we'll find one near (I hope).

 Libraries, Libraries, filled with book families. 

May wants library. NOW. May want to read. May want to try new things. May want it now.

Working on my Manga

(13:14) Okay, so Manga/Anime is a Japanese style of drawing. It's used in TV programs like Natruto and Pokémon. And well, there are two nice people in my class who adore Manga stories, and books and stuff. And I also find them fasinating. But I really like art, so I wanna be able to easily draw Manga. So, today, like, five minutes ago, I fished out my sisters old Manga drawing book (It took like, 10 minutes to retrieve it, even though I knew where it was) and hey presto, now I'm 'drawing a basic face' as they put it. I'll just finish drawing it and then upload it on here.

(13:22) So, lets be honest here. It's not very good. At all. I'm a try again, I think the eyes were the ones that messed up, big time.
It's really terrible. I need to try again.

 (4 September 2010)

(13:30) I've just started to try again already and it seems to be going better than last time, I'm allowing my self to do more sketchy pencil lines.

(13:36) Scanning, scanning, scanning.

(13:38) So, it's alright. I forgot about rubbing out the pencil lines but I think I want to run it under GIMP for a snazzy colour up. Maybe I'll touch up the lines aswell.

(I worked for about 20 minutes then went down for a bite to eat)

(14:22) I've been working on this thing for quite some time now, it's shaping up nicely. I'm thinking of maybe printing it out and sticking it up somewhere :) I've still got to shade stuff though

(14:30) Okayy. I think I'm finished. Yurp. Just head over to my art blog to see it, why? Because well.That's where my art stuff should usually go. This is kinda, like, a preview of it. Because not so many people view my other one. And well, I hope it goes durn good.

On Wednesday, school started. On Thursday it continued. On Friday it ended for two days until Monday comes round. Then I'll have to get up at seven and go to bed at half nine once more. But tonight, I don't know if I'll last until a quarter to ten. I am knackered. Not as tired as last night, sure, I was falling asleep at the dinner table. But still, I remain tired.
 I did 43 questions in maths, although they weren't hard, they were incredibly tedious. The teacher had a mini meeting so she had assigned us all that maths, though, I doubt she thought we'd finish. Around five or six people finished and the rest, not far behind. I was waiting for quite some time doodling in my notebook until she came back and started the next lesson. Irish. It wasn't hard mind you, just not a favourite of mine. We didn't do that for too long, but then a heap of correcting of maths was done. I told you, 43 questions, but 25 were in one book and the 18 in another. I was the only one who got all the 25 right, the teacher was quite pleased and I made a couple of mistakes in the 18 questions. Silly things, adding instead of subtracting and one digit wrong in another. Still, if I had looked over it I would have quite possibly noticed but I can't bear looking over. It's boring, tedious and difficult. Anway.
 We then did religion and then it was break time. I got to help out with the Juniors, a favourite job of mine. Today, I sorted out two seperate fights amongst 6 year olds and helped a little girl find her friend. I love that job. 
 The teacher took photos of us with our favourite thing to do, I brought in a camera and she told me to pose beside a rose bush and pretend to be taking a picture. I wonder how the picture turned out, I'll find out soon enough. 

Now, I'm off to fiddle with the settings on blogger. Bye!
