The Sunday Post ~ 37: Snowpocalypse Survivor Edition

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer - It's a chance to share news - A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
     How high the snow went: UP TO MY WINDOW. Actually, higher than that... by a few inches. O_O
     I also got almost 3 weeks of Winter Break, in which going back to school on a Friday and then hopping into the weekend is completely pointless in my humble opinion. My shoes became a free sponge as well (Curious. They're new. How can there be an unnoticeable hole?) for the snow. -_- But that was the longest break in the history of... not exactly mankind, but my life. It probably won't happen again. O_O

Random Stuff I did:
  • Learn a quicker way to remove backgrounds in GIMP. Unfortunately my usual method fares better. :p Practice makes perfect?
  • Wondered how people who live in igloos live day by day in frigidly cold weather
  • Mess with HTML on Test Blog (well, I DID download the template...)
  • Made a lot of graphics. Looks like I have too many options to choose from now. Oops. *starts eliminating and possibly consults someone*
  • Made some terrible drawings with a sucky program known as paint and a computer mouse. At least the teacup fared better than the supposedly hyper marshmallow that turned out to be fuming mad, along with the mouse. Head. The bunny was drawn much better. I think?
  • Read. I feel sorry for the authors whose books ended up colliding with the weather. Go schedule. I commend Megan Joel Peterson. And nearly Cole Gibsen. Well, at least it made quite a mark on le schedule. Originally books I'll probably get around to in early March made it under the February radar. Yay.
  • Begging nature to please stop being bipolar. Maybe it's just typical Missouri weather. Welcome to St. Louis, where the weather is a terrifying roller coaster. That's worse than my blog stats, and I'm sure that says a lot. -_-
     The so called terrible drawings:
     You know, maybe I should do this often. Especially when I can't find a proper GIF. Although maybe I need to work on those art skills (I actually draw better in real life, though not by much). Computer mice suck. They don't deserve cheese. Particular the laptop ones. I'm not sure about desktop. -_-
     The mouth went wrong. *sigh* >_< (Hopefully I didn't make a fool of myself?)
     And then the transparent thingamajig. I HAVE DARK BLUE HAIR GUYS (I don't).
     Now I just need to figure out how to put a menu in a header. Looks like HTML and I still have to continue tolerating each other (not happening). And I have to bother the searching professors, aka Google, Bing and whatnot. -_-

  1. Ok you need to do a post on Gimp and how to remove backgrounds etc..share! LOL Water will always find a way in even if the hole is too small for the human eye to see. Good luck back at school I imagine this week will be an adjustment.

    1. Well that's just terrible. >_<

      I'm terrible at explaining though! But I did find it at a website, so maybe I'll provide my own explanations instead? Lol. But first, back to blog designing and life for me. I'll keep it in mind though! ;)

  2. I totally thought that was bunny boobage. LOL I'm in desperate need of some graphics for my blog. I need a Graphics for Noobs (not boobs) class. Have a great week!

    1. Oh noes. My drawing must be dreadful, XD.

      You can always find tutorials online; I started out with PiZap and then moved on to others like Serif and occasionally GIMP. I personally prefer Serif and use it most often with my designing. :D
