Whoa, it's already March?

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 3, 2015, 2:28 PM
I have a terrible perception of time. My God, it just felt like the new year and I've barely done anything.  Well, in actuality I've been doing a lot hence why I haven't had time to update my portfolio. I did post up a sketch and a new poem. Did you see it? No? That's ok. I'm still in school and I've been having a blast in my clay figure modeling class. It would have been nice if someone had told me how expensive it was going to be, buying all the tools and the 50 lbs. of clay on top of that. 

Oscar thoughts:

If you know me well enough, then you I really love movies and cinema culture. I was thrilled to find out that Birdman: or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) won for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay and Cinematography.  I was a little disappointed that Michael Keaton didn't win for Best Actor, as I was very impressed with this comeback won which was similar to Micky Rourke's performance in The Wrestler, Eddie Redmayne was a equally befitting choice thanks to his performance in The Theory of Everything. I was happy just as long as American Sniper didn't win. 

I was ecstatic that J.K. Simmons won Best Supporting Actor for his incredible role in Whiplash. Damn, I loved that movie. Good to see The Grand Budapest Hotel snagged a few Oscars as well.

Enough of that, who wants to see some cool stuff I discovered on the internet?!

Is a website that uses a system that determines what new music you should listen to based on entering any three bands/music.artists you currently listen too.  It's pretty useful if you want some new tunes to check out but you don't where to look.

By collecting and analyzing data from numerous sources, we're able to create detailed, informative profiles of all cities in the United States. From crime rates to weather patterns, you can find the data you're looking for on

Our website receives 20 million unique visitors per month (April 2014) and has been featured in 121 books, on CNN, WABC in New York, Bay News 9 in Tampa Bay and USA Today's Hot Sites, among others.

Lastly, please check out this very impressive trailer for EX MACHINA

Besides all that I do promise I am working on stuff, by hey I'm in not any rush to complete it.

To tag a quality deviant: And ya it! 

Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you're nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don't care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them.

Hi, and welcome to :iconthewrittenrevolution: theWrittenRevolution!
There are lots of things you can get involved in: 

Bullet; Red we post monthly writing prompts (that include prizes, and a chat event during the month to help people with their pieces),

Bullet; Black publishing opportunities from other sites (whenever we come across one!),

Bullet; White we have a monthly feature that includes a deserving member, two of the best critiques we've seen during the month, and two helpful writing resources,

Bullet; Red a monthly affiliates feature of two Literature groups,

Bullet; Black and a biweekly-ish article in which one of our admins gives an in-depth critique to one of our members' work that hasn't received much feedback.

We'll soon be reviving our chatroom with weekly activities, so stay tuned for that too. :D (Big Grin)

We also have Facebook and Twitter accounts. On our profile page you will find links to the latest of all the activities I listed up here and to our social networks that will help you keep updated, so feel free to look around and ask if you have any questions, we're here to help!
