Okay. Worked on some school stuff. All of my pre-training AMC stuff is done. Now, it's time to read.

Also, I just realized, two weeks from this Friday is the first day for my Field Archaeology class. REALLY looking forward to that. :)

Also, I've really been enjoying my Natural Disasters class (for my Geology minor), and the GE political science class I have to take.

To reading now, though. :D


Been a while

Since I posted anything, anyways.

At Cal Poly now, working on my bachelor's in Anthropology (Cultural Resource Management), and a Geology minor.

No longer at Disney, but I will be starting work at an AMC Theatre close to home. :)

This quarter is going well so far. Taking Intro to American Government (for a GE), Natural Disasters (for my minor), and Field Archaeology (for my major).

Looking forward to the field class SO much.

So, I need to figure out what I'm going to do for my final in my ArcGIS class. Any ideas? It has to be something I can map. I haven't come up with anything. The example he gave us that someone did another semester was mapping people who are registered sex offenders around schools. I have to be able to get the information I would need for the project, too.

Saw Tron: Legacy last Friday. Loved it. :) Much awesomeness and win.

Still need to see Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Tangled.

...And want to see Tron again. ^^; Soon. XD

Also, been sick for over a week now (almost two), and I'm ready for it to go away.

Lots of work coming up (including an 11-hour parade shift on New Year's Eve. x_x)

Also...some friends are wanting me to write fanfic (for Tron and a few other things). Do I? Or don't I?

WOOT!!! Last night, I was in a guild run through ICC and we downed the Lich King. We'd been trying for several days, and managed it last night. I now have the Kingslayer title. :D!

I'm VERY, VERY happy about this. It was a great group, an we knew we could do it. Second try last night, we'd already made it to the second transition phase. We just kept going and going. And we did it. *SQUEES!!!*

Didn't get much written, but I got some. Some is better than none.

NaNo Word Count
I wrote 4,170 words today. I'm amazed that I managed that, but I'm happy. It's all I've written so far for NaNo, but if I keep it up, I can get NaNo done. Now, must sleep. Have work tomorrow. Won't be home until after 11:00pm because of it. -_-

4170 / 50000

But hey, I at least get to kinda see the Christmas Fantasy Parade and "Believe...In Holiday Magic" fireworks. And the fireworks mean I get to see the "snow" they do. :D It's just supposed to be VERY, VERY crowded. D:

...I told myself that I wasn't going to claim any springkink prompts...but I did anyways. Not as many as normal, though. And I have quite a few days where I have none.

Plus, I have over a month to get them done...

Saying that, though, isn't going to make it any easier to finish them with work, but I'm definitely going to be starting today, since I'm off.

And, on the plus side, I've been working nights at Disneyland, mainly, so I have during the day (when I'm not at my other job), to do them. XD;

Guess I should go ahead and get started on them, huh? ^_^

And I've finally managed to get them done...
The Soundwave Icons that is...XD

Made them for ultharkitty (sorry it took so long. I blame work and being unable to find my flashdrive that had the pics of Soundwave on it. XDD), but anyone can use them. Credit would be nice for anyone who decides to use them, but I'm not going to get bent out of shape if you don't credit me.

And, no, I'm not very creative with them...well I wasn't right now anyways...maybe I'll make more at some point that are a bit better. XD


...Let me know if the link doesn't work. Photobucket keeps refusing to load for me, so I don't know if it's going to work. :/

Haven't posted in a while...
BUT, I finally have something to post. XD

While I was training for Jungle Cruise, one of the other Cast Members mentioned something, and I wanted to post it. It's Weird Al's new single: "Skipper Dan."


Watch it! It's hilarious. XDD (And so very suiting...)

*starts humming it*

(no subject)
Seen a lot of people with these, so I decided to get one, too. XD

Just click on it to feed them. They'll follow the cursor around, too. And, if you want one of your own, you just have to click on the little icon thing on the top left corner of the "pond" to get one.

I finally did it last night. I hit level 80 on WoW. :D

And I made sure to get the pictures when I did.


Now, I can start doing heroics with my friends. ^_^

Not only that, but I respecced some. I went from around 12,000 mana to around 14,000, which is what I really need, since I'm a Holy Paladin.

Also, on another topic, I love working at Disneyland. Sure, it's exhausting, but it's still lots of fun. ^^ I just hope I'm better before Thursday. *is sick and has a night shift on Thursday* Even if I'm not, this isn't something huge. Probably just a cold or something.

And now, I go sleep. ^^;

I know I haven't said anything about them lately. I'm still working on them. It's probably going to take a little while, because I still need to get a lot of the yarn. Once I get it, I'll try to finish them as quickly as possible. ^^

Does anyone here on my friend's list know anything about making a website? If so, I'm trying to get a program called efiction to work for the layout, and it won't. I have no clue why, or what to do.


That's the thing I'm trying to use. It'll make the site a fanfiction archive-type thing. I don't know what's wrong In the instructions on the efiction site, it says I need to finish installation from the site, but when I try, it doesn't do anything.

Also, I don't know if it'd have anything to do with it, but the ftp client I use is FileZilla.

Help please?

So, starofsacrifice mentioned something about posting pics of hers (from WoW) on her LJ again, so I decided that I'm going to, too. Instead of posting them separately, I'm going to post links to them, and what they are. Enjoy~

Pics of my character, and some with my friendCollapse )

Pets and MountsCollapse )

A few people over on elite_eggs had some new adoptables. I decided to check it out...and of course I decided to get one. -_-


It could use clicks to go up levels and such, but, as far as I can tell, it doesn't exactly NEED them. I'll just have to feed it and such once it hatches.

Scarf update
It's taking longer than I thought to make them. There's a good chance that I won't get them out until after Christmas, but I'll still be sending them.

If anyone who hasn't said so wants one, feel free to comment here, send me a private message (here or on AIM [prowlieboy]), or send me an email at amandalynnesmith@gmail.com . Just let me know the colors. When I finish them, I'll comment back/email/send a message asking for an adress to send it to.

List so farCollapse )

Once I get one done, if anyone wants to see what it'll look like, I'll take a picture and show you.

So, I've been thinking...
Scary, huh? XD

Anyways, I decided to do it for two of my friends already, so I figured I'd open it up to anyone of my f-list, too. I decided, last night, to try my hand at crocheting again, and I'm actually doing pretty well. I'm going to try to make scarves for people for Christmas.

So, if you're interested in one, just comment with your favorite colors, and I'll choose from them and make one. (If you have a color you like more than the others, just say so, and I will use it.) Um...sometime later, I'll probably make a post so I can get addresses, but I'm bad with screening comments (which is why I'm not doing it now).

Actually, if you want one, and want to go ahead and send me your address, too, you can email it to me at amandalynnesmith@gmail.com.


I'll probably keep a running tab on here.

To MakeCollapse )

Oh, and, if you're interested, there's also a kind of yarn I can get for them that's kinda like it's feathered (like a boa). Don't remember what it's called, but I can use it, too. Only thing there is that the colors might be limited. I'll post an update when I find that out.

My mom posted this on her LJ this morning, and she asked me to pass it on to anyone on my f-list that she doesn't have one her's.

Please go take a look at this link:

I know that lot of people on my f-list don't have too much money to spare, but if you could even donate $1 to help them out, please do. Also, please pass it on to your f-lists.

Ganked from...

If you saw me in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for?

(no subject)
So...someone on the community elite_eggs had another kind of adoptable called ponystars, so I just kinda had to make an account. They're REALLY cute (they kinda remind me of My Little Ponies).

Here's my account if anyone wants to see my two. I need to name one of them, still.
