Wow, four days and almost 100 pageviews
You know how people who have much less tend to be happier? In the Dominican Republic they have nothing
and they are so happy. That applies to deviantART too. Here on dA you have super huge and popular artists, usually professional artists with Premium Membership, and you have the not-so-visible ones, the majority of dA, most of whom are amateurs without Premium Membership or any of that sweet stuff. The super popular artists have hundreds of thousands, some over a million, pageviews. They got more watchers in a few months than you got in two years. They submit something, and twenty hours later it's on the Popular 24 Hours page. They take advantage of this. But regular artists wouldn't dream of it, are happy with less than 20
s, are shocked by over 100 views on one deviation, and dream of one Daily Deviation someday.
Anyways, technology rant...
Technology hates some, maybe many, people, and I am among them. I cannot wait to have a new computer when I'm eighteen. HP laptops are crap, really. I've had mine since I was about thirteen or so and it's gotten a few viruses, it freezes a lot, shuts down for no reason, sometimes crashes, the programs don't respond, and the keyboard is broken so I'm typing from a wireless keyboard connected to it. I call it "The Craptop." I mostly use my school iPad, and I don't use The Craptop unless I need to (there are quite a few things a computer can do that an iPad can't). Also about this:
My email drive -- where I write everything now -- is OneDrive (which used to be Outlook, which used to be SkyDrive, which used to be just Hotmail, how many times are they gunna change the name???) and it's good but it's Very. Very. Annoying. Sometimes. It might have a few bugs, because sometimes it deletes a sentence or paragraph, or enters/returns one too many times. You have to use keyboard shortcuts to cut, copy, and paste, which only works on a computer, not an iPad. And on an iPad, the most annoying part is, sometimes if you scroll too fast, it crashes and you have to sign back in
I can't use it on my iPhone cus the app (CloudOn) isn't very good.
But it's the easiest and most possible way, really, cus my current Craptop is temporary and the only other place to store stuff is my deviantART Sta.sh. I don't really feel good about saving files to a computer anyways for some reason. Since The Craptop is temporary, I should probably clean stuff out and upload it to my OneDrive. There are some stories I haven't finished or uploaded to deviantART and I've thought that I shouldn't keep them, but I don't know if I can let them go...
I have three school projects right now
1. The one for history is the most stressful. I have to make a video about something that happened between 1900 - about 1950. I decided to do 1920s music. But I don't know how to make a video.
My history teacher thinks we all know how to make a video, she probably thinks we all learned how to when we were kids, have YouTube accounts, etc but uhmm not me. And, you know, my history teacher doesn't even know how to make a video.
There's so much random research to do too
2. I have another one for athletic training. I didn't even want to be in athletic training but I guess the Nutrition class was full. It's a group project (ugghhhhhh) with three other girls, and we got basically started on it but...I don't know...
3. And I have another one for contemporary social issues class...which I'll get to.
^ And, you know, try
to keep up with my art
