How have you lovely ladies & gents on my flist been doing? I hope you're all keeping well <3
Sorry for not being around that much ^^; I've been trying to put my mentally mind at ease over my short break back at home.

I think I'll start on what I did back home and then the latter of the post will be my whining against my pre-production for my masters project (worries & whines eep)


Like I mentioned before (And sorry if I didn't), I've been on Easter break since the 2nd April and it should go on until the 25th. I knew I wouldn't be on LJ much during the time I went back home from the 4th to the 13th since my brother took his days off just to spend it with me ((Everyone says I'm lucky to have such a bro - I know lol)) so sorry about that ^^;

Let's see, my break back at home consists of playing his newly bought Wii (Play Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Mario Galaxy, some Super Mario Bros Wii and watched bro play Metroid Prime.) Three~four days out of the whole break we didn't do much just stayed at home and played games (Since the weather was so-so back then)

Important things that I did get done where visit the dentist (Had to get a filling done, lucky they had empty slots so I can be given anpther appointment within the same week.) Had my hair cut (I think next time I may get it cut over here, let's try and see how bad people cut hairs lol) and I got my ears pierced (This time I'm keeping them for life hopefully). The ears pierce was kind of 'done it in whim' thing but also because I thought I want to and I should.

I had my ears pierced when I was 10 or so, but I wasn't used to the idea of feeling and had no experience how to keep them - they closed up lol. The second time was when I was 16, I wanted to have them pierced but in the end I didn't keep them, my school was strict and forbid piercings of any kind (Later because people had so many piercings they decided to allow 1 set of piercings on the ears - that was too late for me then)

My current ones are stainless steel (Allergic to alloys, I'm not taking any chances ^^; )
And LOL! I think they made the beep sound when I was passing through the security checks inside the airport on my way back ^^;

My trip this time on flybe wasn't too bad... going back home was an overall safe journey (And I was quite scared to travel alone to an airport and plane since it's officially my first time doing this alone.) However, coming back here to bournemouth - like I said the earrings made the security check beep (I know because I wore the same garments back to home and back to bournemouth minus the earrings) and the airplane shook horribly (because of the wind, no pun intended) My reactions were #1 I'd feel safer in a roller coaster; #2 If I die, at least my family won't die with me; #3 If the plane is gonna crash or land I wish it'd hurry up because the wobbling is making me feel ill =_=;; ((I should be grateful to be alive, I know.))

I saw my mother on the day before I left. Overall she looks fine (She complains there's not much earning from her business) and she mentioned she has been feeling quite acidic on her abdomen/stomach etc. She did get her food passage checked (like I did) and the doctor said there was nothing wrong. She said she's been vomiting when the day comes to an end and that after eating something she sweats like hell. She said she'll see a doctor soon - I hope she did now. I know she's in pain all her life, but it's hard not to brush this away sometimes and feel like it's an everyday thing. I'm such a useless child o_O;;

I have not seen my second brother - he's a troublesome child is what I can say, it sounds cruel and you may feel sympathetic with him but don't just hear the basics - it's obvious he's not gonna stop gambling, he's making hell for all workers within mom's working place, think he runs the place, feels unfazed when mom says he'll cut his working time and then gets mad when mom says cutting time obviously means cutting wages too (If you work for someone, it's obvious that cutting time = less money right? Because this has never been slapped in his face before he never thought of about it. Not naive but ignorant.) I have nothing much to talk about him or with him since I kind of gave up on him.

Anyway mom, said she went to a fortuner teller. She said she never asked about her kids before and this is her first time. FT (fortune teller) says her eldest son earned a bonus. In reality, he got a raise in his wages and title (finally for a number of no raises for 2 years) for his work.

FT says the second son prays to God (really?) everyday for a kidney and that he will get better. No offense and sorry if this sounds cruel, but he is NOT the type of take care of his own health. Even now, he may be avoiding doctors, appointments etc. He does not keep himself hygenic at all. He may not even be taking his medicines properly. By the time if he does get a kidney the doctor may deem him unfit enough to be able to have a functionable kidney. Even if you do get a new kidney you're still on medicine and stuff, and he thinks getting it means no more medicine or doctors - obviously there's no such thing as an easy life. If he doesn't take care of his new kidney the results are still the same.

FT then says, "Your daughter, if it's black, it's black; if it's white, it's white." - That's it the end, and I have no idea what the FT or my mother meant at all o_O; I know not to completely trust FTs but this is some riddle lol! My mother said it in chinese so she didn't specifically said if I was black in skin colour (obviously not) or my soul, or my attitude or relating to some kind of issue/case. I have no idea what this means.

Lastly, for the first time I listened fully to one of my brother's DVD concerts of Alam Tam & Hacken Lee. It's their most recent one 左麟右李演唱會2009. This one sounds better than the previous ones - I think it's because Hacken is less 'stiff' and finally he found his style of singing? Because he has such a perfect voice, a boring dull song will make his singing sound dull (I should say the whatever the flow of the song is, his voice will sound similar to it, so if it's a cheerful song he can sing cheerfully, if it's dull and boring then his voice is boring it lulls you to sleep) His newly founded style makes his songs sound better - I usually listen for the melody so 2009 ones sounded better.
I think that's about what happened when I was back home. I tried to ignore my master projects - as for why I will talk about it in the next part.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

Before my break back at home I had one tutorial meeting about my pre-production with my tutors. Let's just say it didn't go THAT well. I personally think it's because I didn't really go experiment drawing a lot and went straight to show what I want. On top of that it was drawn in 'anime/manga' style - they didn't like it lol. But that's the only style I know how to draw for now!
They said my character does not suit what they're supposed to be. If anyone remembers, I said I wanted a girl in her 20's, she's got white hair and white garments, I kind of visioned her garments to be european/gothic/lolita etc, combinations of something like that I wasn't too sure - I just know I need to make her look like a conductor with a twist.
They said I'm trying 'shoe horn' my character, trying to make them look like what they should be but they don't really seem to be. One of them said it looks like a fairy princess. One told me to go research hippies. I have a funny feeling they're thinking of something tribal.
They asked me why does it have to be a 20 year girl and not a 40 year old (they said the character sounds like mother nature) I asked them why not? When they said 40's I thought of fat, ugly, wrinkled - you get the picture. I guess I haven't been exposed to 'good-looking' 40 year olds. If you want to look at characters or play them, you'd want a beautiful or young looking one right?

One of them said my idea was not ambitious and been done over a thousand times before (Really? Maybe he meant a similar concept? But if that's the case then there's no originality at all!) he said the idea's good/ok, but the character needs to be worked. He said at the end of the day I should develop my style - but how can you develop your own style when humans in general realistic life all have 1 pair of eyes, one nose, one mouth etc. unless you have accidents anyway?

I'm not mad at them, I was just upset knowing my idea may not work in the end. I'll have to get something done when the new term starts knowing the fact that this idea of mine is not gonna turn out to what I have in mind. They want to see your ideas developed - in the real world you'll have to get a resulted product out quick and earlier - I guess I'm too used to that idea. My brother says that if I show what I want right away it suggests I am plagarising - I'm not! X(

So I was glad I decided to go home for the break, I tried not to think about it too much and kind of wanted to cry when I was about to come back here knowing it may not work out or that I won't like it at all. It would just be like the final year of my undergraduate - that one was hell not because of the workload but because I feel forced to work on stuff I don't like. Or that I just suck at my art/drawing skills in general.

I convinced myself that I had been through hell before, so I should just live with it for another 5 months and hopefully I would get out of it soon with a possible job...

Also I thought my research project was a waste when what I want to do for my masters may not be related. I thought since I'm modelling characters in terms of game modelling, hair simulation is bull and that the softwares they provide do not do something like hair meshes which seems easy for people to model hair. gamemodeeling is mostly about modelling in low-polygons and making them look high-res so I thought my research idea was completely not related to my final project. (In reality they shouldn't be realted but it's good to do your research that will help your final project in someway) So I was at a loss. My research tutor replied back that seems to be some sort of hope for me but I wasn't too sure. I'll probably email him sometime this week to see if I need to see him next week.

In short both of my pre-production and research project doesn't seem to be going well so I was worried and upset I refused to think about it much when I was back at home or in front of LJ or FB.

My brother told me to just get something done - which I agree and was planning to do so. I'll just treat this as 'I'm working for a boss and not myself' and I should be ok. that would keep my emotions in check and won't be too precious about the idea.

Sometimes I feel my tutors are so contradicting, first they say you don't have to be really good at drawing but then if you draw like shit they get worried. They ask you where's your reference yet then they say reference is not everything when you argue it is. They kept saying that this is your project and what do you want to get out of it yet they don't let you do what you DO want to do. Hey, I'm paying to do this course so I should do what I want right? Well no, seems like it's even worse than not getting paid.

One of the girls in my class sort of got told off. She originally had a ninja idea, my tutor said ninjas are cheesy and have been done over and over again. So she decided to change to another idea (Whatever it was she didn't tell me because she feels ashamed of it) she told me that our tutors said 'You've disappointed me'. Thing is, she just wants to demonstrate her animating skills, she's not a screenwriter so it's ok if her stories are simple right? One of them even told her that the worst case scenario is that if she doesn't want to the final prject she could always walk out and not get this degree and do another one - wow, that's a really stupid thing to say!

Other people asked me why I didn't say I only wanted to model to demonstrate my modelling skills (In reality I have not touched organic modelling at all) and I never stated I wanted to be a concept artist. While this is true, however I thought it's good to practice and learn to be one whether or not I become one in the future right?

Anyway, this may not sound like a lot of drama but to me I was quite upset and lacked the confidence so I refused to do much work. Even now as I have came back from home for the past few days all I have done really is to go to the library to get DVD tutorials - I haven't even watched anything yet.

But I do know I really do need to start my work now, I know I'm hating it though. I suppose everyone hates it when you don't get the support you want right? *sigh*

That's about the drama from the Uni for now.


--------------------------------------------

Can we talk about something happier? I dunno if I feel better or not ranting the about, but I think it will - because LJ always will be my final stop on rants, by that I meant once I stop ranting to my nii-san and on here, I will get a move on with life (whether I end up happy or not). No matter how much you whine and hate life, it's always there and it's my own job to try and make it better for myself - with the additional help from God, my family, online and offline friends.

I really want a nice KH wallpaper (1920 x 1200) but I really don't have time to do it. Even my LJ layout I've been saying I'll get around to remake it but I never did.

I can't wait to see Tsuna officially inherit the title of Vongola Decimo - I wish he'll be a less dame-dame and stand up for himself more. I guess we saw too much of his less-dame side when he was in the future arc. (But it's fun to see it once in a while I guess). I don't mind him panicking and freaking out he doesn't like or want to be in the mafia but I do wish he'll stand up for himself.

Hunter x Hunter - I don't like how Gon is turning out to be. Then again I should look forward to when the mangaka plans to stop his work again.

One Piece - I hope Luffy won't be too devastated. I wonder when we'll see his crew though.

Hmm.... can't think of anything at the minute, I'll post more later.

Honestly speaking there's nothing much to look forward to (other than 22nd, going to London for a day to visit bristish museum and broaden my horizons) the rest are days of hell. I don't work well with hell =_=;;

Sorry I didn't comment much, I do hope my flist are doing better than I am ^^;

The British Museum is great~
I wish I could go down there and join you! I'm hankering to go down to London again and visit Hampton Court Palace properly...

*hugs you*

Now that I think about it, I don't remember if it's a museum or gallery - all I remember was that they told me I'm seeing gallery works - maybe not a museum 8D;
But people have told me the museum was great, I really should go visit it once in my life ^^;
That would be fun if you could =D

*huggles*
I hope you're keeping well ;)

You know what, we should totally arrange to meet in London for a couple of days sometime and go to Hampton Court Palace! hahah

I'm okay, I guess. Feeling a little on the lonely side but overall okay. It's into the thesis stretch now. Ugh...

Hahaha we could - I just wish the following terms won't be so hectic 8D;

Awww... *huggles* Just think about it - 5 more months and it'll be freedom!
I don't even want to think about my final project nor my research lol ^^;

New Wii? That's cool. Not sure if you have an Wi Fi connection where you were but it would have been nice if we could play a game of Smash Brothers online with you both! ^^

I had my ears pierced at the same age as you, but mines haven't close up, despite having not worn any earrings for well over a decade and a half. XD; Also allergic to alloys!! O_O

Glad to hear your trip was fairly safe sans the scary shaking. ^^

I hope your mother gets better, I haven't a clue as to what maybe causing her illness, but hopefully it can be remedied with a healthy lifestyle and food. *hug*

Your mother never asked about her kids with a fortune teller? O_O; But, this first is quite a relief to hear.

Yes, getting a new kidney isn't going to solve all your problems, it's much more complex then that. ^^; Something that is slightly foreign in the body needs time to adapt and function well, etc. ^^;

Oooh, very board indeed with the black and white thing. o.o I thought it may have to do with your decision making or perception on things.

Yeah, here it's pretty common that they don't want you to do anything in anime style, so you're pretty much force to go for a more quirky look something more original because the anime style is already an established style so they want you to do something more original.

Hmm, I guess they really want something to relate much more to the nature aspect of it, hence the hippy. Though fairy princesses are pretty much heavily associated with flowers. =P I still don't see the problem with the idea... *Sigh*

As for age, ok. A slight curveball there. An image of someone young and in their prime works better, like how flowers bloom to maturity and look beautiful in their prime. Any older and we're already thinking of withered flowers. XD

I guess they do want to see some development as you said. So they may expect a number of character designs, etc, also.

If you need any help in brainstorming or an help on developing ideas, just let me know.
If you're going to head this on your own, then I'll be on the sidelines supporting you! Hang in there! *huggles*

That's pretty much how things work in college for me, that I wasn't really doing these for myself but to please my tutor in order to get good grades. ^^;
It's harsh and unfair, but I'm quite surprised to actually hear this from a 3D animating class over originality. I would expect this more out of illustration or graphic design classes. @_@

EDIT: Oh! And the day you're coming down to visit the museum, I would love to met you, but that's the day I've to attend my Uncle's funeral. Perhaps next time we can met? ^^

At my bro's place maybe - he's not really the type to play SSBBR that much ^^; But it will be fun to play with you one day <3

Which age? 8D; I had it done 3 times so i wasn't sure which one (I assume the earliest one?) Are you also allergic to alloys? o_O;

Thanks! ^^

Actually, it's kind of true she doesn't have a healthy lifestyle, as for food it depends. First she works in a shop and I tried to ask her when she eats - since she's a diabete she has to eat whenever she feels the need to otherwise she can't balance her sugar levels. She should drink milk, but she doesn't like milk - I find that drinking milk reduces the acid-like feeling in your stomach HOWEVER if your stomach can't tolerate milk that much (Which is the case for her I think) then's it's both good and bad. She could drink soya milk, but she refuses to drink any kind of milk.

Nope, all those years she asks about her own welfare and her ex-husband. Perhaps she did ask before and forgot.

Exactly - he doesn't seem to think that far as always.
I think, with one of my flatmate's and my bro's conclusion is that I'm too stubborn on stuff and refuse to think of certain things in other manners. I try to convince myself to stop being like that but my attitude has a long way to learn ^^;

Lol, there's no such thing as originality nowadays, those that deem to be original at first then gets copied a lot - why would we have terms like 'impressionism' and others etc? In the end they're all the same only with slight differences, imo people in the UK did not read enough anime or manga and they don't seem to be able to see the different amounts of style for a certain 'style'. For example, both Tezuka's works and Doraemon's works are shounen works and may even look similar - but how can you tell them apart if you don't even look at them closely like Monet's and Van Gogh's styles? Sorry for whining lol.

They seem to be forgetting that the character is also a conductor - I think I wanted the character to look like a victorian musician and has the ability to do that. My brother says they're still thinking about it in an old-fashionable way and since this was something they have not 'encountered' before they refuse to see it in case it does not look possible (More like, they're the ones that mark it.)

I even went to research fairy Godmothers since they wanted 40-year old looking woman (Let's just say some of them feel like they don't act their age, ick, ick) I'd rather doing something horror if they have to look old lol.

In fact, as I talked to my brother about it, he suggested I could always go do the opposite - make the flowers wilt and make the character an emo or something - which sounds cool if the character looks like a skeleton in victorian clothes and is like a boss of a game lol. The boss plays the piano, for each key they press it makes a flower wither hahahaha 8D; Let's do it horror since I don't seem to see a beautiful piece from this project anymore lol.
They'll probably eat my head off for being undecisive and going to do something like that XD;

That's what they want to expect - I guess I need to learn to do many designs even though I hate the thought of it when a design was already in mind 8D;

That's cool. Perhaps one day we would get to play online. ^^

Sorry for not specifying, I meant at the age of 10 was when I had my ears pierced.
Yes, I only realized this when wearing some quirky mood earrings and my earlobes developed a rash from wearing them. ^^;

Oh, I see. So diet is most likely the cause for an upset stomach. Does she not like yogurt? Maybe suggest that she tries out Activia.

Ah, ok. ^^

Hmm, ok, I can see how the Black & White comments works here. *nods*

That's ok. ^^ And I can understand your argument, but sadly the general “adult” view on manga is pretty much Pokemon. ^^; The stereotypical big eyes, small mouth, etc. I agree that it is sad that the UK is very narrow-minded on it's view on manga and anime. The culture here doesn't understand it and therefore looks down on it. =(
Nope, nothing is original. Any idea is inspired from something before it. *nods*

I think that they are being a little too over critical on the concept. As I said before, something that they are not familiar with they won't like. ^^;

How about reversing it and just use a child instead? XD; At this point, I'm already thinking of the fairy Godmother from Cinderella (how's that for originality! =P).

lol! Your brother's idea sound hilarious! XD It's a good back up plan if you want to fall back on it and if you really can't press on with your current one if everyone seems to disagree with it so much.

Yes, I know. They want to see development in order to mark your work so they can see your thought and work progress. ^^;

Yay! I await the arrival of that day XD;

Oh no worries ^^ Ah~ so you're allergic to alloys like I am o_O; Just your ears or neck and bracelets or whole lot?

Actually I think she does take yogurt - just not that much and Activia is the one she takes.

That's ok. ^^ And I can understand your argument, but sadly the general “adult” view on manga is pretty much Pokemon. ^^; The stereotypical big eyes, small mouth, etc. I agree that it is sad that the UK is very narrow-minded on it's view on manga and anime.

A shame, quite a shame lol.

True true. I kind of hate my progress at the moment - I draw like a snail! @_@

Lol! My brother said that too - Sure, why not? They ask me to change it to someone older, why not younger and more? XD; Yup, that was the typical fairy Godmother to me too - what about that giant fairy in Pinnochio(sp?) ? Is she a fairy godmother too? I forgot ^^;

I'm starting to like the idea of it - a human that has mostly flesh and some bones to make it look like a cursed corpse - hahaha 8D;

Yeah, and if they ask why I went to a child, I'll just say it's development & experiment since they asked for a different age XD;

Me too! ^^

As far as I'm aware the ears, neck and wrists. Don't know about the rest and don't want to try and find out either.

Ah, I see. How about vitamin pills? Does your mother takes any of it if she isn't so keen on taking milk?

A shame, quite a shame lol.
I know, which is why I often hesitate to let strangers know that I'm into manga. ^^;

Awww, I hope you have done something so far since I last replied. *hugs*

Oh yeah... I think that was a fairy godmother in Pinocchio. Though I could be wrong since it's been years since I last watched that movie. ^^;

Good reason! It's what they want! XD

Continue!

I'm crap at drawing traditional stuff - ideas wise, I just have a hard time picturing what I can do with 40 year old & fairy princesses... they just don't seem to click. To me, that's just someone who totally refuses to grow up 8D; I suppose it's the lack of visualization I have on such things.
My brother told me to do really ugly ones and have the one I want to look nice so hopefully they'll prefer the nicer one - they may like the ugly ones, who knows!? XD;
But thanks, I need the emotional support.

I don't think it's about grades - sure if they can mark me high then of course I'll love it - but I guess the most important thing is they support me on what I really want to do. It feels worse than working for the boss of a company - because I don't mind doing something (that I may not like) for my boss because it's my job. This one I'm torn because it's my project yet at the same time it doesn't feel like one, they don't approve completely - which makes me sad to know they're not really open about such things.

They are trying to help you in some way so when you apply for jobs you have something that could be original to yourself - but in fairness realistic looking people all look the same, it does not matter how they look because it's not a style, it's what the character is meant to look like - get me? Everyone does look unique, however anyone can make the same looking person - it's not a style imo.

Perhaps next time? I'd love to meet up with you once before I go off to who knows where - if I'm lucky I'll get a job in the UK, otherwise I'll be back to Ireland (Most likely will happen if I don't manage to get a job before I graduate.)
I've actually thought about it over this Easter but then I remembered you don't have a long break like I do (And I should be back to work really)
And I dunno when is a suitable time for you either ^^;
Don't worry about not meeting me in London this coming week, chances are I don't even know where I'm lurking and how I'm wandering with my classmates because it's such a big group ^^;
May your Uncle rest in peace =)

I better go sleep, I'll reply the rest tomorrow night possibly ^^;

The 40+fair princess combo doesn't work in my mind either unless she is a fairy godmother. ^^; Or you can approach the whole thing with weird sense of humor. XD; So if they do go for the ugly one, you can just approach it with silly humor then with a sense of beauty.
Awww, I hope you don't feel to crestfallen to not continue. *hugs*

It is ironic that they say you can do whatever you want for the project, yet not support your ideas. =/ That's just confusing. Still pick yourself up. This is just a small stumbling block in the road of life. Sadly, you may have to comply to their suggestions for now.

I understand what you're saying and I also understand why they would want you to break away from the anime style too for job searching sake. It's such a tight rope to walk when it comes to the education board.

I think of taking my annual leave during the summer. Perhaps late July? I still need to decide. I can try and have my annual leave whilst you have your summer holiday from college. Just let me know when you are breaking! ^^
If you are looking for a job in the UK, then just let me know and I can give you a hand in job searching too! ^^

I'm most likely not going too far as I will be spending my entire day with my family and relatives on the day.
Thanks! And I hope you have a fun time at the museum and gain some inspiration whilst there! =D

K! No hurry! =)

The one I drew looked like the ugly Princess Fiona from Shrek lol - most of the 'fairy godmother' pics I found online were all "OLD fairy princesses" XD; It's quite scary to look at. Yeah, that's what one of my classmates said - it'll be a twisted humour in some way XD;
I'll probably push the idea back and deal with it another day - but right now the most important thing is to get something done - my drawings are not only crap but they're really slow progressed! o_O;

Yup, I'm expecting a continuous wave of tumbling rocks against me - I'll just have to endure it ^^;

Sometimes I wonder if they don't like my anime style I wonder why they allowed me to take the course 8D; They say they do judge on your work and there WERE people that couldn't make it because their portfolio work was not good enough. Then what's good enough? o_O;

I'm not sure if I even have a summer break - lemme see my schedule:
http://windyhurrice.livejournal.com/246775.html#cutid1
Well, I suppose sacrificing one day is fine XD;
Oh thanks in advance! ^^

No worries!
I hope so too - I hope I find good reference material ^^;

I hope you managed to conjure up enough work. If you need any inspiration, then just ask me and I can try and help brainstorm something for you. ^^

Yep! Just hang in there! ^^

I guess they thought they could try and inject some change in you without warning you about it first. ^^; Which is pretty unfair, as they could have made a point of it when they saw your work. I remember getting a lot of remarks about my manga art when I went to interviews and concerns about drawing in that style (at which point I had to convince them that I am capable of drawing in a different style).

*Stares @ schedule* I can't tell if you do or not. XD; But oh well. I already have a plan to take a week or a few days off in early June and perhaps a week off in late July. Still thinking about the July one. It might change.

Cool! *^^*

*Hugs* It's been a while. I'm glad that you enjoyed your break. Wii is awesome XD.

I hope your mom is ok now... I wonder if it's because of stress..

I think that deep down, your brother does want to get better, but he just lacks courage and confidence.

Maybe what the fortune teller meant about you is that your future has not been determined yet and there is a lot of possibilities. Depending on your choices, it can be go one way or the other ^^;. I'm not good at understanding these stuffs ^^;. It's interesting to see what fortune tellers have to say just out of curiousity. I wonder how much we can trust ^^;.

Your masters project sure sounds tough. All the things that you're doing seems interesting though. You might have to endure a lot of harship in the process but in the end, I'm sure you'll be proud of your own work and what you've achieved :). Do your best.

I didn't do much work in my break when I should - so guilty 8D;

Yes, that's one of them. Then again, she's the kind that gets restless if she doesn't do something or talk with people all day ^^;

No, no, what my brother needs is the determination and focus to do things - he's too lazy to even bother doing it. He may lack confidence but not courage ^^;

That's possible too, I never thought of it that way ^^;

It is! I do hope I'll like it in the end - at the moment I'm not happy with it anyway, I just hope they accept my new idea better (But I haven't gone into depth as I prefer not to waste time on something that won't be done anyway.) Thanks! I'll try ^^ *huggles*
