As life requires me to do different things, I finds myself listening to a wide range of music, almost habitually.
For example...
While I am cleaning, I like to listen to light hearted pop, from artists like Jason Mraz. 
When I am doing math/physics problems, or when I am driving, I like to listen to alternative rock, like the Neighbourhood, or Arctic Monkeys.
When doing research, I love listening to swing era singers, like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, etc., or a thoughtful podcast.
When reading, I like songs composed by Joe Hisaishi, Claude Debussy, or artists like them. (Classical, instrumental)
When drawing, I like to listen to music that best represents what I am drawing. (Does that sound weird?)
And when I commute places, I prefer not to listen to anything at all, but rather the world around me.

When you go through your day, do you feel like you listen to just one or two genres (like strictly metal or only classical)? Or does it really just depend on the activity?

I know I have maybe 9-10 active watchers, but I thought it would be fun to share routines, and musical preferences, because it can become such an integral part of one's day.

So as the title asks: What do you listen to? And when?

After a week of midterms, stress, too many pieces of pumpkin bread, tears, and sweat, I did it!! And in between all that school madness, I was able to upload a lot of my old stuff. I am a dummy!:happybounce: Clap Now I can finally get to adding things that aren't from the Stone Age of my drawing history. (I just felt like I should have something on my page besides the same 8 deviations that have been there for like 4 years. Sweating a little... )
Anyway, thank you to the people that just started watching me as I was throwing on all my old stuff! Love You are the real MVPs.

I look forward to adding newer and better things to DeviantArt!

Art for me has always been a road, that some people choose to get off of, and occasionally, when the time is right, choose to pick right back on to where they left off.

Thank you for being a part of my journey!

Hello Friends!

After an unnecessarily unexpected hiatus in which I fell off the face of the planet and accomplished quite possibly nothing in my artistic ventures (okay, well maybe a couple things), I'm back! Following a lovely exchange of interests with my new roomie, I have been once again inspired to stop living under physics textbook, and see the vibrant dazzling world I could be illustrating. So now, rather than existing day to day with only doodles in my notebook margins, I have decided to make the actual effort to pull out the sketchbook again, and be a real artist. 
So watch out world! Because I have dozens of Deviations to throw out on here in the next few weeks. (some of which will not be very good, because I will be uploading everything from 9th grade onwards). =u=

...after my long voyage in the study of the stars.

I haven't stopped smiling in an hour.
Today, I decided to sit in on a lecture by an expert astrophysicist for a couple of hours. The amount of information he provided was both tremendous and exciting. To be honest, I've been afraid of exiting high school to enter the 'real world', but today has revamped my aspirations and goals. Rather than being uneasy, I'm really ecstatic now. Having talked to the pro, I feel more confident about my own dream of being an astrophysicist.

Get ready world. Here I come. C:<

Whilst doing some research for my mural assignment, I've been wandering around a few sites, lookin' for some ideas. And then an artist popped up on dA, and I died. It's like everything I could ever hope to achieve and more. For 5 minutes, I was just flying through his gallery muttering 'Take me, I'M YOURS.'


This obsession's going to last a while...like a knives chau thing, but without the whole relationship deal...


But besides the point, I know what I may be doing with my assignment now! OuO (But I'm not 100% sure yet, so I'll post what it is when I am). So yay. eue

and I'm having a great day.

When you get to learn all these facts about people you'd never think you'd grow closer to, it really brings you together. C: Being able to talk to people that you can truly relate to is a wonderful thing, especially when it reaches a personal level. I never realized how much I missed Senior Bonding with my marching band friends until I hung out with them nearly two months after I had before. I really hope this will be one of those traditions that remain after high school.

You all have a lovely night/morning.

So I meet up a few of my friends so we could head off to the AMC 20 to watch "A Haunted House". As the three of us sit down, my friend Melissa pulls out a birthday cake out of her backpack. "Happy late birthday Mariam!" QAQ  And to add on to that, another guy sitting next to us said the same thing. -u- So we all proceed to watch the Horror Spoof while eating delicious birthday wishes. :D

It was one of the kindest thing that a friend of mine has ever done for me.  Man sometimes I really like the world.

I've decided to try changing a few things about myself.
One of them being the fact that I've shied away far too much from others when they've tried to see my art. So today I'm going to start posting some of the art I submitted to an art competition a while ago. Since I don't really have a camera/scanner, these will probably be the only pieces for a while (all photographed by the lovely rire-et-bisoux), but expect to see more in the future. C:

Sometimes you just have to go out and do something that will scare you shitless to remind you that life is pretty great.

So today was my lovely moirail Charly's birthday, and instead of giving her a simple gift like a normal human being, I was the dimwit who wanted to be a special snowflake and devise something unique. -u- Unfortunately it took a lot longer than expected and I finished at 7:40, even though the delivery to her work was supposed to be an hour earlier... Anyway, my father wouldn't let me ride over there by bike, but he wouldn't drive me either so...... I snuck out. 737~ And having not done that in years, I became extremely paranoid in my bike ride there and back. Dude. Winter nights are fucking creepy. Especially when you venture out into mini version of Detroit on a 5 mile journey. 0_0 (Which may still be an exaggeration of the town, but still). Despite everything, I had to make my delivery to the fair maiden. u^u

After the whole thing happened it was kind of nice. C= I think we all gotta do risky things once in a while to remind us that we're young.
Have a good night everyone. ouo

Lately I've been trying to think of a good idea for scholastics, and I've fished through the pond of variety but to no avail. So this week I've decided to find a subject that I was passionate about to theme my portfolio: Something that I would be able to make an argument for. And I've found it. -u-
I've decided to base my portfolio on the downfalls of technology and the consequences humankind faces from it.

Don't get me wrong, technology's great. But There are many times where I go surfing on the web, and I realize how sad it is that people (in general) don't really use their gizmos for their intended purpose. (or just abuse them). It's as if technology was the human brain: we only use a minimal percent of it for the bare minimum, allowing many dormant possibilities to escape the thought. Sure social websites are awesome, and photo sharing sites, etc. etc., but we could do so much more than that with things like the internet! (NOt that some people don't, I'm just saying in GENERAL)


I dunno. I just had a thought, so I felt like sharing. =u=

above the chimney. Yesterday was the best day ever, for three reasons: MY marching band (MC) got a pretty decent score for its first competition, I met homestucks outside my group of friends for the first time, and I had some really nice bonding time with the seniors in MC. Let's start at the beginning:

So i go to trenton for my first competition, and while our band was heading up to our room, I spotted a baby dave clip out hanging onto the drinking fountain. Fuck yeah. It was like a rainbow blew up out of my mouth and spilled onto to floor. Happiness engulfed me like a raging communist bear, mauling its prey.

So then i kept a look out for them.

after our performance, which was pretty stellar, we headed back to our room, and I overheard two colorguards from a different band passing by, muttering 'homestuck'. I whipped around, and asked "homestuck?!" My life flashed before my eyes, and it was as though those two attractive colorguard were the light at the end of the cave of my secluded fandom.

They turned around too, and we both flipped out in a flurry of OHMIGOD, and HOLY SHIT, and before they had to leave, i got both their names and one of their numbers. Aren't I bitchin.

2nd, which only marchers would understand, my band got a 71.2 for our score, which was SWEET.

and finally, i went to an after competition hangout with my fellow band seniors, where I discovered some amazing things, and pretty much had some intense bonding time. It was really nice. Like some sumo wrestler came over and lifted a 330 lb. weight off my shoulders.

Yup. September 22, 2012 was quite lovely.

Sorry I haven't been putting up journals in forever, but I've been busy as all hell. =u= But we don't need to hear about my life, I actually have a question for you guys, which makes me feel stupid, but will seriously help me in the next few days: How do I make prints, and can you give me any tips with making them?
If things go well with something I have planned, something really good is going to happen, and I'm gonna be giddy for the rest of the summer, bouncing jelly testicles on a planet of rainbows and marshmallows. -u- But I'm gonna be really sutle about it cuz I don't wanna jinx myself yet.
Anyways, if you could help me, I'd really appreciate it. 0u0

Today was the first day in a really long time that I got to vent to my sister about a few things. It felt kind of nice, 'cause she understood most of the stuff going on, so I never had to explain anything.I feel so much better. =u= But because of the little things like this, I'm really going to miss her when she leaves. QAQ But that's besides the point.

And a side note: Guess who's making sopor slime pie over the weekend and will probably have her hipster glasses coming by monday? This girl. C8 Aw yeah.

And even though probably none of you care, I just finished the first dungeon in LoZ: Twilight Princess. >u< Fuck yes.

Just came back from the GREATEST WEEKEND EVER. I can go on for hours about how great it was, but I won't bore all of you. Okay, maybe i will. eue so i went there, and we headed over to the mall 'cause i heard they had some sweet stores. I nearly shit my my pants when i entered the greatest anime/japanese store of all time. 9u9 There was so much crap there, you could barely take it in. After shopping for a bit, we got hungry as the mall was about to close. After stopping by a pizzaria in the mall, i got thirsty, so i went back to ask for water. The guy then asked me if i wanted any pizza, cuz he was going to throw the rest out. And guess what, bitches: we milked that cow til it bled approximately a box and a half of pizza and breadsticks. -u- Yes my friends, life is a great thing.
Before the pizza, I rode on a dragon. 0u0 on a carousel. TTuTT It was even better than the free pizza.
By the end of friday, I was chillin' a a bed watching drawn together and basically having a great day.

But i won't tell you the rest of my weekend, 'cause you're probably already sleeping.
But the moral of the story? My break is going great. -u-
