    They need to make more Snivy/Servine/Serperior stuff in general

    I kinda will! There's a day-long workshop after the conference back in my home office, and then on the weekend belated seconady birthday event with friends from high school (some have work others have uni exams now, so last weekend or even this one was/is not a good time). And we'll be seeing the Pokemon Orchestra concert at the Sydney Opera House. Aw yeaaaaaaah.

    After that back to focusing on editing my first first-author paper! :B

    It would still be a challenge! I have exam/assignment marking all day tomorrow, meeting on Thursday, my 'annual progress review' Friday, this poster to finish off and print, the sparkler presentation for it to actually do as well, haircut to get, etc. And my attempt at Nano (pfft). Plus because I'm a sucker for punishment I'm going to apply for ~extra~ observing on the weekend on the off-chance I get it to help confirm a result. In the early morning hours. WHOOPS. :V

    So yeah, not getting the talk (as it appears) isn't too bad given this busier-than-usual week, haha.

    Character art mostly, perhaps some surrealisms and abstracts. I've been trying to branch out into regular art stuff like that too.

    Heh, of course. I wouldn't mind talking too much, but having to throw together a talk (even if it would be a short one) would be the annoying bit just because I'm busy with other things as well (like that poster!).

    That said judging by a version of the agenda looks like the talk may have been dropped entirely. :< Oh well!

    Construction's a little worse because they're deliberately trying to get us to come down on price by whining, but when it directly interferes with the quality of my workmanship, it's hard to not snap at people... I usually don't get people that bad, but once in a while, I do have to walk off the job because they literally don't letup. The phrase "the customer is always right" does NOT apply to my trade whatsoever, and I don't think I can stress it enough sometimes. :/

    I need to practice with them a bit, but I think I should be able to improve drastically using them.

    General overview of what the science team I am part of with this telescope have been doing/will be doing. But it's only 5 minutes, including question time! @_@ But it's not decided if I would cover for it. Up to the talk committee with that.

    There are downsides to my work...namely, exhaustion, overexertion, and stress (especially when customers suddenly get it in their head that they can tell me how to do my job rather than let me work or, worse, salespeople promise things I just don't do like they say I can...suffice it to say, common sense is sorely lacking these days). Still the pay is very good when work keeps up. I can make a good week's pay in two or three days on a good sized job like the ones I've been doing lately. Just there are those cases where I have to wait to get paid on some jobs, though (namely from my commercial customers that have set payroll and bill-paying timeslots).

    With the pens, yeah, I think it's just going to take some getting used to them like you said. I have seen people posting extremely detailed work done solely in those types of pens and it's REALLY high-end stuff. O.O

    Yeah at the conference. Got to polish off and then print a poster. Annnnd maybe give someone else's talk (to be decided!), which will make me very busy next week. Remote observing depends on the hours. =p

    Nope! All my coursework for the phd was done last year! I do have a busy week ahead of me though, small conference coming up and some remote observing potentially as well.

    Thanks!

    Had dinner with work friends yesterday, which was nice. Having another event with another group in two weeks time too (as they have exams to contend with around now with uni).

About Me

  • About Nolafus
    Biography
    Hello and welcome to my profile!

    It's quite obvious at this point, but my main interest would have to be writing. I'm not the greatest, but I'm working hard to improve every day, and I hope that I can get a few things published in my lifetime. I mainly write light sci-fi pieces, but I'll get an idea for something else every once in a while. Despite this being a pokemon forum, I don't write much fanfiction. However, I do enjoy reading it from time to time. As far as reading/watching goes, I prefer sci-fi or horror.

    Besides writing, I also enjoy watching movies, playing video games, and day dreaming. My top three movies would have to be District 9, How to Train Your Dragon, and Slumdog Millionaire in that order. I don't really have an organized list for video games, but Mass Effect and Skyrim are my top two. I like to competitively battle as well, so if you ever want a battle, let me know! I mainly play OU, but I make teams just for fun for just about any tier. I don't play video games too much anymore, but you'll occasionally find me on Rocket League.

    I think that pretty much sums it up. If you have any questions about anything, or just want to chat, my inbox is always open!

    I modded FF&W from November 8th, 2013, to March 12th, 2015, and really enjoyed it. I've been a super-moderator ever since the latter date, and I love being able to help PC in whichever way I can.
    Interests
    I also like roller coasters and I play the trumpet, french horn, mellophone (a french horn for marching band), and flugel.

Now that I'm officially in my post-good movie high, let's get started.


In case you don't know what Zootopia is about, and you can't watch the trailer, let me give a brief preview. All of the characters in this movie are anthropomorphic animals, meaning they can walk, talk, and do everything a human can do. So yeah, basically every disney movie, but that's besides the point. Zootopia is this big city where all of the animals can live together in peace and...

Man, it's been a while since I've done a movie review, far too long. So, when my roommates invited me to go see The Boy with them, of course I tagged along.


The Boy is directed by William Brent Bell and stars Lauren Cohan in the main role. In case you haven't seen the trailer, a nanny, Greta, is called to this old english house so that she can watch over the old couple's son while they take a vacation. The main plot conflict comes into play, and I don't...

M. Night Shyamalan brings us yet another horror flick, but this one is a little different.


I must admit, when I saw the trailer for this film I wasn't expecting much. Here comes yet another found footage horror film to throw into the pile, lost and forgotten with all of the other cheaply made films studios pump out for a quick buck. At least, that's what I thought until I did some more digging. M. Night Shyamalan actually made this movie with his own money....

This movie is gory, doesn't make sense, over the top, and mindless action. So why did I enjoy it?


I must say, I was really surprised by American Ultra. I went in expecting mindless action with really cheap comedy, and that's actually exactly what I got. But don't worry, there's a lot more to it. The very things I went in to see took a backseat to a story with a surprising amount of heart and characters that weren't drones for endless jokes. Don't get me...

If you thought the first Sinister was messed up, hold on to your sanity, because you haven't seen anything yet.

WARNING: GRAPHIC SCENES AND VIOLENCE:

For the record, I thought the first movie was decent. It at least tried to break from the traditional hollywood jumpscare routine by giving us interesting-ish characters and a plot that wasn't bad. This movie is pretty much the same, only it cranks up the demonic factor to twelve, and doesn't hold anything...
