[sticky post] HI.  
New default post cause I didn't really have one...

this journal is mostly FRIENDS ONLY.
My icons: froonium_icons

Don't add me just for my icons, add froonium_icons instead :)

If you're not here for the icons and would like to be friends for some reason, let me know in a PM or in a comment here. Don't just randomly add me cause if I don't know you at all I probably won't add you back, but if you just ask I'll probably say yes. Just let me know what we have in common/why you're adding me. This might be the icon hobby (I'm very happy to friend other icon makers) or a shared love for LOST or INTJ personality or anything. I have a lot of issues though so sometimes I'm a jerk. But yeah if you still want to add me, just let me know.

So I thought I'd FINALLY make a resource post, now that the rich text editor works at least bearably. This will be a long list.

Resource creditsCollapse )


It's entirely possible that everyone who should be here isn't. That happens especially with artists who don't put their nicks on their texture files or make a preview pic with their nick on it. So if you notice I'm using one of your textures but can't find your name here, please inform me!

Guys, sorry I've been away, I know I have some things to reply to and all, I've been super busy with my uni project and work, but now that I finally have a day off I decided to something extra fun! and you know what that means: installing software!! In this case, MediaWiki. Because well, who doesn't want to run their own wiki? ofc I first needed a server software and didn't want to use IIS (which I'm using for the uni project) cause its awful to use and requires so much tweaking and I'm super confused and just couldn't get it to work. So, I did something wild for once in my life, ie installed WAMP, so that now I'm running both Apache and IIS on the same computer! That's not recommended at all but I did change the ports so that Apache listens to something other than 80, so I think everything should be ok.

And, after all that work (I'm not even telling about how I had to reinstall everything because I accidentally deleted my sql server root user, haha. That's just... way too stupid), I FINALLY GOT IT TO WORK!! I have mediawiki now! and I started working on a reaaaally awesome wiki, I'm never going to put it online because it would hardly interest anyone, it's just some place for me to store my own personal history cause I've been looking for some good multimedia format for that for ages and a wiki is perfect with all the linking and knowledge organizing possilibilities!! I swear this is not as narcissistic as it sounds, I'm storing mostly the stuff I shared with my sister. I just have this obsession on knowing exactly when things happened so this is the perfect way for me to store all the details.

So, how's your day? anything special going on? I hope you're having this much fun too but if you're not just go here and install it :> I was actually supposed to make an icon dump today but idk if I can get that done now that I have such an inspiring thing going on.

Merry Christmas & happy holidays or whatever you want to celebrate!

I'm not much of a Christmas person myself. I just celebrate by capping LOST and organizing the caps into scene-specific folders with the correct transcript files and character tags in each folder, so when I randomize a cap it will be easy to remember the context and possibly get ideas from that. Hope all of you are having a great time too!

I'll continue the meme tomorrow btw, just took these two days off cause christmas and capping project and all :)

DAY 2: Who are you? In comparison to who you used to be. What made you change?

First I just want to say that I don't define myself in terms of demographic details. I never, ever let gender, age or race play an important role in my self image. What defines me is my personality, opinions and values.

"Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist." - George CarlinCollapse )

So that was jovial. It probably sounds like I'm whining, but really I see all of these as good, necessary lessons, so I wouldn't change back even if I could!

Exam week over (I only had 3 exams but they were tough, lots of reading). I did great and I'm confident I'll get awesome grades for all of them, which is the only way really and pretty much the point of my existence.

So now that I have time, I'll try to write here more regularly, and for that reason I'll start one of these meme thingies (thanks raiindust for the links). I've never really done these before so let me know if I do something dumb. I chose Deep Thoughts 30 Day Challenge cause the title makes me feel like I'm writing something interesting even if I just post Ben squee :p

DAY 1: What happened today? If it was the last day of your life, how satisfied would you be with your final hours?

Mostly I just enjoyed the fact that exam week is over. Here's what I did:

List of things I did todayCollapse )

So this was a pretty basic day, and only special cause it was the first (almost) free & relaxing day in a while. I guess it would be as good as any other day to have as my last day, it's not like my life is going to get much more exciting than this. Then again it would suck to die knowing I just did all the hard exam learning for nothing, lol.

[The other days]1. What happened today? If it was the last day of your life, how satisfied would you be with your final hours?

Novembers are the worst. I never have time for anything but uni, pretty much literally. And the same goes for the first half of December, there's still an exam week right around the corner, but at least the groupwork assignments are now done!

Have I missed something important here at LJ? Anything anyone on my flist wants to share or discuss? I feel like I've been cut off from all my social circles for such a long time that nobody cares about or remembers me anymore. Then again I'm used to browsing here every single day so a break of a week or two feels like forever, lol.

I'm trying to think of something fun to do now that I can, I haven't really done anything enjoyable in ages save for watching some shows. So, ideas for how to reward myself after all this work are very much welcome! I found some really interesting scientific image analysis software to download, but that's all the fun I've currently come up with :p

LOST continues to be the best thing ever. I've sheduled my daily activities carefully to always leave at least one hour free so I can watch an episode. I've just started s6. I still can't get enough of Ben, all the episodes should be centered around him tbh, and I really love Locke too and I'm sad about his s5 storyline. The other characters are great too but these two are just special. The whole show is so captivating though and far exceeds anything I've watched before. I hope all other shows won't feel really disappointing after this, but I'm afraid they might :/

I wish I had something more interesting to write but really my life is the definition of dull. Just wanted to let you know that I'm still around as much as I can, and that in two weeks I'll have all the time in the world and I'm really looking forward to that!

I'm still alive but very busy with uni work. I have two big group projects and they both stress me a lot.

Fandoms are taking a lot of my time. I spend waaaayy too much time just watching all these shows. It's because I'm so crazy into LOST right now, I want to watch it all the time but I still need to follow my randomizing list* so if I want to watch a Lost ep per day I'll also need to watch whatever else I get from the list, so that's unfortunate and takes a lot of time.

fandom thoughts, mostly LOST, possible hinted spoilers up to 3x14 or soCollapse )
Anyway, I've had to take a lot of this time from my iconing/online time. I hope people understand it if I've missed and will miss a lot of interesting things and gorgeous icon sets and fun activities and everything, I wish I'd have the time and energy to really browse through my feed for everything that has been posted during the past few weeks, but I don't, so apologies for that.

I'm not losing interest in iconing at all though, in fact I really enjoy it whenever I get the chance to make some, I just have to spend those few moments just making my own stuff so that I get at least something done occasionally, instead of being very involved around here. I know it's selfish and i do feel guilty about it but can't really change that right now. Maybe once I've finished with my list, or maybe if I get over all the Lost love sooner than that and I'll be able to focus on things again. And also I'll probably get more done on the iconing front once I finish reorganizing my texture folder. I've actually done pretty well in hunting down the texture sets I have and assigning them into proper folders but there's still a lot of work to do. A well organized texture folder structure is one of the key aspects to a successful, overall positive iconing experience :)

* and nobody gets to say that i should just stop following the list ok!! I don't support chaotic watching like that. If a set a system for myself, I damn well follow it. Rules are meant to be followed. It disturbs me to think that I would just stop following The List. Soon there would be no order or control in my life at all and I'd just do stuff without any system or logic behind it, and that could lead to some really crazy shit like not even having my dvds in an alphabetical order. So don't even dare to suggest that! :P Besides I really enjoy those other shows too, I just don't obsess over them 24/7 the way I do with Lost. I wish this had more to do with plots and less with shipping and character crushes but this is me so who am I kidding.

Oh, and happy birthday to marieyotz!! :)
