This is the best photo of me I think I've ever seen. My profile! I look so Sicilian. Expect a new userpic soon.
[EDIT] Flashing kitty eyes in the background--cute! See them?

Behold the loveliness that is my homeland. At this time of year, it looks like Ireland to me.

This was the FIERY breathtaking sunset that graced itself on us on the drive back home from dinner at the lovely Thai place, House of Siam (aka, House of MMMMMM *moan* GOOD!)

That is a gorgeous picture of you. I hope you realize just how beautiful you really are...most people don't.

Thank you! Well I know that I have a kickass nose, if that counts :P
I'm starting to get more of an idea that I'm attractive. I still have a long way to go, but I'm getting there :)

Thank you--I think that's the most unexpected compliment I've ever heard! lol
You can if you'd like, but you'll have to show it to me when you're done :P

Sure thing. Here you go. Took me about thirty minutes.




I hope you don't mind my style; I always get fingerprints and other charming messy things all over my drawings if I am excited enough, lol. I had to do it in red colouring pencil because it was the softest (=the best smearable) thing I could find; my actual soft drawing pencils are probably at mom's place.

Can I show it to my friends page?

...funny, now that it's in vertical position as opposed to laying flat on my lap, it seems I got the proportions rather wrong. Ahh. That's what you get for being too excited to look harder.

Well hey, it's an artistic interpretation of your face, alright.

It still looks like her, which is saying something. There's a reason why I never draw anything organic.

Thank you. I am being increasingly bugged by seeing the proportion mistakes in my drawing, but I suppose I'll still let it be as it is.

It's so GORGEOUS, thank you hun!
If it took you thirty minutes, I'd say you're doing damn good lol. I didn't know you could draw like that! And to me, it looks just like me...I don't see anything out f proportion. Veryveryverynice :)
And of course you can...why would you need to ask lol?

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :)

I used to practise this kind of thing a lot when I was fourteen and fifteen. I have quite a bunch of pencil-drawn portraits of the members of my favoutire band from that time. It'd been a long while from when I'd last seen a picture that had inspired me to draw as much as this one of yours did, though. Take that as a big compliment. :)

I asked because it's you in the picture. Then again your own picture entries are public, too, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask anyway. :)

Wow! Well I didn't know you ever were into drawing, let alone could draw this wonderfully!
And yes, I certainly will take it as such...thank you so much!

You look magnificent! So ethereal. Brings to mind a cameo come to life.

Beautiful pictures of the sunset. I always say I'm very fortunate to have people I both look-forward-to-seeing-and-cry-over-leaving in two different places. You're going to have that, too...plus, you get to have one photo album of beautiful sunsets and another of beautiful sunrises. It's kind of fitting that the sunrises are where you are starting a new phase of your life. That's quite a welcome.

Thank you so much hun! I can't get enough of it. It actually makes me feel pretty :)

I didn't even realize that about the sunset--it's so true! Symbolism truly is everywhere, and it makes life even more beautiful. And yeah, I'm gonna be an emotional wreck the week of May 16th (though, it will be in a good way). I am so glad for the welcome of this new stage of my life, and also the gracefulness (for the most part) in which this old stage is setting down.
I'll see ya soon--I can't wait! :D
