Halleluja, holidays! :D (well ...sorta)

After several weeks of hard work, and two weeks of extremely excessive work, (working till 'round midnight and eventually beyond), the exam for "Computer Graphics 1" I had been preparing has come and is done.

Not sure about the result, clearly didn't have enough time for all of the exam (lol 10 minutes left, now time to do the rest), though guess I did well with what I did.

So... I theoretically have holidays now, except that
a) ... there's a course that still goes on this and next friday, though it's nothing big, we just learn stuff about the history of computers, including quantum computers, computers using DNA to calculate things, the question if the universe itself is a computer, and the likes... :p
nah, lol, the students prepare medium-sized talks, that's it. My topic was the question if the universe is a computer, though. Mmmm, yeah, let's just give you a vague rezitation from my source-material: The quantum fluctuations are the monkeys that programm our universe =p
Yupp, our universe is being programmed by quantum monkeys. :XD: :D

b) ... I still need to finish / start on most of the drawings and paintings I was supposed to do for the relatively basic arts-course I took this semester.
Trouble is that I take forever in drawing, and as long as I don't listen to completely distractive other stuff, I get pretty easily stressed out about all the mistakes I make and cannot undo X_x
Seriously, I don't like pen & paper for drawing, or, well, at least not when the drawing has to be in the huge A2 format where every correction takes forever x_X
c) ... neither me nor my teammember had the time yet to do any programming for our "Robocup"-project since mid-January or so, which means while the project could have been done by now, we will have to start and complete it in the holidays instead.
What's Robocup? uh, a simulated soccer match with each player finding our their best next move on their own.
It's kinda stressing out my computer ^^;
Though we don't need to program the whole thing, a framework and otherwise functional team is already given,
except that we're the ones who get to write the code for how the players will react when the soccer-game switches to "penalty"-mode.


Well, in contrast to many of you guys around here on dA, I actually don't study arts, but Computer Science. Lots of programming and stuff. =P

But generally, I believe I will actually have the time now to properly continue working on the Sonic flashmovie now. ( yay, my "2 months" guess I made 2 months ago was apparently about correct! ^^; )
Ironically I actually got (almost) all the final voices just two weeks ago when I totally stopped having any time for animating at all. ^^;


oh, and while I'm on it, here's a funny fan-art I got from Orcbrother:…

So, hm, err, wheeee



okay, just got tagged by zinng9, so adding this to the recent journal.

This is a tag that will make you fell Proud of your past as a kid
The rul's ar simpel answer 3 questions and TAG! 3 ppl and if ppl fell like to make it Please Do!
1! OK what was the most happy moment in your Days as 5-9 years old?

I have no idea. o_o; Dude, I'm 24, this was about 15 to 19 years ago! O_o;;

2! What in the hold Past was your fave Day's at home? 3-10 Years old
favourite day? probably same as now, weekend. though I was always up early to watch TV-shows back then, while now I have a videorecorder for that ;) Not that the shows I watch nowadays come very early, but in theory, yeah.

3! What music and Tv Show Did you like most? 3- 11 Years old
errr, I watched A LOT of TV shows as a kid, I can't recall any favou... wait, one show there is I still even remember the themesong, it was ... AHHHhhh, thanks youtube:…
Oh god, lol, extreme tecno trance beat something! :w00t: :dance:
Gotta love it :D
Lol, I still remember how  I even recorded this intro-soundtrack with a low-quality cassette recorder, and used to play & rewind it allll the time, eventually partly being the cause of breaking one or two "walkmans".
(You know, that's the thing we had not only before mp3-players and I-pods, but before CD-players, even. It plays cassettes, yet it's portable.)

Otherwise... music? I don't even remember listening to any music before I even had a videogamesystem ... except, errr, I remember I had the "Smurfs Remixes" cassettes, basically versions of popular music with different text, sung by the "Smurfs". So that's nothing to be proud of ^^

*reads update*

wow, that's what I call Broken English

zomg I remember the Walkman! never used one myself, but there's an old one in my basement, probably my mom's, mind you, I don't have a portable CD player either, and I was rather reluctant about getting an MP3 player, only reason I got one at all was because it was also a phone, really I just like listening to the good old FM radio, so much more variety and you don't need earbuds!

...while I don't listen to the radio at all ^^;
mizox Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009
I listen to my local classic rock station whenever possible, mainly because earbuds won't stay in my ears and the '94 Chevy Suburban I drive doesn't have a CD player

wonderfull memory you have =)

Can't wait to see the Sonic movie! after all that time it must've been either really hard to make, really detailed, or really long.

or you could've been waist-deep in homework...
UltraTheHedgetoaster Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009  Hobbyist Artist
I say, all of that is correct! :D

...except for "really detailed" ^^;

As a matter of fact, I'm trying to struggle my way around animating several details in some easier way right now. ^^;

really hard to make? hmm... i dunno, i can hardly compare it with anything besides the roger tribute flash and the other unfinished flashmovies I have lying around, so, err... yes, for me it was "hard to make" I guess ^^;
megatoaster Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
For me it would take longer...

I don't even know if I have to record voices in flash or have to import them...^^;
