"Extra Ordinary"

So, a few weeks ago, my brother Chris sent me a comic picture on my phone and said that this was me. After he sent me this, I went back and started the comic from the beginning.

The comic is called "Extra Ordinary" and it follows the tales and adventures of Li, Jordan and Shoelace. Li is the artist and she is pretty amazing. Her drawings are adorable and I love her four-panel idea. It's really very clever and she puts it together very nicely. Jordan is in a few of the comics, and he seems to be this mellow, yet interesting guy who's always around to be bothered by or to bother Li, and of course Shoelace is this adorably funny cat who can do all these tricks, including walk on ceilings. ;) But that's in a later comic. Their adventures and such are random, something that I like, and they always make me smile and on occasion laugh.

"Extra Ordinary" is updated every Wednesday (American-time), which is always a nice update, since it's right in the middle of the week, so if you're having a down week, or need a pick-me-up, or just want to finish the week off with a good smile or laugh, this is definitely a comic that will help with that!

Just dropping by....

Tonight, I don't have much to write about. I finished a painting I was working on for someone and have been packing. It's been busy this week, with work and all the stuff I must do to prepare for the move, but it has not been bad. I leave Sunday, so wish me luck! Don't worry, I'll still post. =)

Anyway, I'm debating on making a page on my blog here to post the first chapter of the first book in my trilogy. Any thoughts on that? Let me know! =D

The Fantastic Life Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!

So, I'm Tara. Hi! I am an Art Major and an Author. I write mainly fiction fantasies dealing in magic and the likes. I've been working on the same book series for the past (almost) 5 years now? With the first two books done in the trilogy, I have been working on getting some query letters out. =)

I work at an amazing place and love my job and the people that I have met and meet while I get to work there. It is an awesome experience. Really. It is. =)

I like to think of myself as an upbeat, positive, optimistic person who looks at the glass as half full, or even all the way full! XD I love people, so feel free to drop by and get to know me. =)

The SP and work...yup =)

My SP is going...okay. Did a few character sketches and I have an idea of what I have it to be, but I think it could take another day before I can start stuff. When it's ready, I'll probably put it up on: "SmackJeeves Webcomic Hosting". It's a really cool site..."Angel Academy" is on there.

Worked today...Fast Food...ehh, it was okay today. Wasn't extremely busy, not too many people yelled at me in Drive-thru (oh, yes, you make one mistake: "I didn't order tea!"..."My finger slipped. I'm fixing it.") They don't see me until they pull up to the window and then they realize that I have to take the money and the orders, sheesh. That's a lot to do, especially during the lunch rush (12p-1p) and everyone's impatient. Ugh.

Actually, though, I had one person come up to me today and tell me that I was too nice to work there (in Fast Food) and I should work at the bank because they were hiring. XD I thought that that was nice of her. I could check it out...but I'm leaving in 55 days to go to Florida. Oh, yes...Florida. @.@ I should start getting ready for that.

And I work at Fast Food tomorrow too...Saturday is the fun job!!! =D I am so excited, I cannot wait! o(^o^)o

And...and...I think that's it. Talked to Tori last night, so glad I did...but her "Plan B"s always seems to include me having to kiss someone. XD

So...Who Reads These Anyway? XD


Today was interesting. I got called into Fast Food, I seriously did not want to go in! Now I won't have off until Sunday, blahhh. I was supposed to hang out with my one friend, I ended up hanging out with Justin instead. @.@

So...Disney! Am I really looking forward to this as much as everyone else? At this point, right now, I'm not quite's going to be so different this time. I say different, I mean EXTREMELY different. =( Teresa won't be there, Aaron will only be there for about 2 and half weeks, maybe. -sniff-

What do you do when you don't want to write or draw? -sigh- I need another creative outlet, or...-gasp!-...a "REAL" job outlook to focus on. Haha, yeah, is mine! I guess it's just one of those days, hm?

I want to talk to TORIII!!!!

So...I keep trying to just sit down and write, but it's just not working very well. I feel like drawing instead, so I'm just going to work on a little side project instead. No, it isn't my co-author project with's just a little comic. Hm...comic...I should probably work on the background of the new panel for Angel Academy. Speaking of Angel Academy, please check it out. I've been working as the background artist since the strip titled "Letting Her Know" , so, please check it out. =)

Anyway...I'm going to work on my project. I still need to get a hold of Andrew about tomorrow...blah.

Neuviéme: The Missed Intro / Fun-ness! XD

So, I never really stopped to really introduce myself in the first post. Yeah, I know that that is what you're normally supposed to do, but when you meet me, you realize that I'm not really normal. XD I like to do things out of habit and order. I'm a pretty random person and that's why the name of my blog is "Aléatoire", which is French for "Random". =)

I'm the oldest out of my siblings and have two younger brothers, Top and Phil (don't ask, because I won't be using their names on here, that goes with the names of any friends I might mention. Strictly using nicknames, but if you know me, I assume that you'll know who I speak of... =D) and besides my Mom and our pet dog, Lei, I'm the only girl and have been for quite some time. Only recently (8 years ago) did I get a little girl cousin. So...I can be a tomboy sometimes, but I'm still fun! XD

Hrm...I'm pretty sure that in my "About Me" I mentioned that I'm an Art Major. Yeah...get used to that idea, because at the current moment, I have no desire to change it. I love draw and sketch and write. Usually, that's all I do and my parents can vouch for that.

Anyway, the point to this blog is so that my friends and family can follow me when I finally go back to Disney! I am so excited to go back, I have missed it so much since my last College Program with them last Spring '09. I was a QSR and worked at CBR =) Ahh...abbreviations. =D This time I'll be doing Merch, and I have no idea where! I'm going down with...JW...I guess that's a good nickname, what do you think JW? Haha...if you even read this...XD Anyway, super excited!


Now, I'm too lazy to post this and then make a whole other post, so I'm just going to include it with this one. Yesterday started out a bit slow. I went to Church and then went to go do face painting at a birthday party. Afterwards I went out to dinner with Tessa and Ken! It was a blast! =D We went to Chili's, (I never really go there, so it was kind of different) and then we went to see Shrek 4 (JW joined us spur of the moment), which was much better than the 3rd one. It was a good way to end the series and had some good music. I will look into getting the soundtrack later, because that's what I do...get movie soundtracks and orchestral music =D

Today, Mom and I drove my Dad and brother to the airport. They are flying out of state so my brother can check out a college now that he's 18! =)

Oh! And I found out today from a friend that my other friend and I ended up on the front page of the local newspaper for participating at a local craft fair! Ah, I'm so excited! I cannot wait to get the paper tomorrow so that I can have a copy! =D

On other news, I am just about going through the revisions for my first book. Once I am done I can finally send out my new Query Letter to see about getting representation for publication! I will post on here how that turns out. XD

And, even though I really do not want to go back to the place that I work (fast food, yuck!), I am in desperate need of money, so tomorrow I picked up a shift from one of my friends/co-workers who offered me his hours...he is so cool and nice! =) This, of course, means that next Friday I will get a paycheck!!! =D

Now, for something that I drew on the window of the sliding door until Security at the complex told me to erase it off. =( -sniff-...but Stitch is so cute! <3>

I also want to include a strip from one of my favorite mangas. (I feel similarity with this strip sometimes regarding these things) have to read it right to left! XD.

A rainy day, raining all day long, but it is not a bad one. Rain is so nice and I love listening to it. =)

Today, I got a call from my teacher. Someone wanted to buy one of my paintings that I had put up in the school art show. I told her no, but that I wouldn't mind doing another painting for them.

I need that painting for my portfolio. XD
