Hopefully new contacts tomorrow.  
Well that's it. I posted all 16 personality types. I keep remembering characters I left out so I'm always revising the list. Must add Dr. Claw to the INTJ pile. And I added The Professor from Gilligan's Island to INTP and Woody from Toy Story to ENTJ. I'll repost the chart showing the difference between the 8 points tomorrow so I can use it as a refernce instead of linking people to that one journal entry and having them wade through me talking about a bunch of Halloween stuff before getting to the personality stuff.
Wanted to point out that the part about us not liking to share our plans until they are done is true. I'm very much like this. I'll brood on an idea or secretly work on it and not tell anyone not even Chris until it's finished. The reason for me at least is that if I screw up no one will even know it existed and I can try again or give up. The worst is when we get stuck and we haven't told anyone then we need help. Oh gosh that's happened a few times. I HATE doing that. I'll reluctantly tell Chris, "I need help on something I'm working on. It's almost done but I'm stuck." I'm always surprised to hear, "Wow cool! Why didn't you tell me?" Because I was waiting til I got done but I couldn't finish. We different greatly from the INTP's in that failure doesn't discourage us. It even encourages more. INTP's do not handle failure well at all and ususally give up easily after one. INTJ's are the ones you'll always here say, "Next time! Next time it will be even better!" Yes the cry of the evil mastermind. Because we learn from our mistakes and what not to do next time. I'm actually working on something now, but I'm not going to mention it til I'm done. Though I want to, but I won't.

Well I've mostly been coloring all day. Been working on the budgie with guitar drawing. I had forgotten that my neck and right shoulder hurts when I'm on photoshop. It's been that long since I've made anything with any detail. Since I don't use the tablet 100% holding my arm over the mouse for hours on end really hurts my neck. I really don't know what to do about this and I'm actually very motiviated to work on art. I can't be having stupid pains keeping me from doing that. I can tell I'm a bit rusty as this budgie isn't turning out like I had hoped. But it's just the same problem that I have a hard time with placement of light and dark. I really think for this I just need a professor to show me and test me. I can usually figure things out on my own until I reach that point where I just don't know what to do. But hopefully I can finish up this budgie tomorrow.

Been making some over seas friends on Youtube. I've been using a lot of Spanish and Portugese lately. The Portugese is close enough to Spanish that I can understand a good bit and get away with just using Spanish. When I visited Italy years ago I got by using Spanish too as those languages are so similar. But I've also had to use a translator which is funny because there's no translation for Spanish to Portugese. I have to use English and then type in Spanish again because I always leave something I can read so I can remember what I said.

I'm very excited about tomorrow. I'm going to go to the eye doctor and hopefully get new contacts that won't give me a head ache. The last ones were the wrong perscription and I quit using them half way through the year. Been using my glasses which I hate and I think they're finally no good. Apart from being cracked I'm getting headaches from them too. So this is the first time in years that I think my glasses perscription will have to change. I'm keeping my old frames though because frames are so expensive. Even plain ones.

Then after that we're going to go to the Guitar Center because I want to look at five string basses. I'm not going to buy another one. I can't right now but I have come to realize that for the music I like to play I need that extra low string. All the Kalmah stuff is on the very low end and even then it's down tuned. No way I can reach it on a four string even down tuning that. I'm keeping my Bad Boy though. He still rocks and looks awesome. I just want to see what's out there, get a feel for it and see if I can even handle a five string since it would be even bigger. Chris is excited about going too. He loves looking at guitar stuff so he was happy when I mentioned that's why I kept the apointment at that far away optical.

Yeah that makes sense. I think mine changed after I got new concats which just sucked.

I go to the opthamologist every two years because that's all Medicaid pays for. The DMV won't require me to go again for four years or such, but I have such problems with my eyes that I need to go every two. My vision is stable, it's just uncorrectable with lenses. When I do eventually need glasses 20/40 is the best vision I'll be able to get out of them.

I don't have insurance or anything like that so I have to pay everything out of pocket.

I'm pretty sure the eye doctor I go to would either negotiate if I didn't have insurance or be able to find someone that would. He sees lots of poor people and Medicaid people and Medicare people. The eye stuff is important because I could lose my drivers license if I don't go to the eye doctor regularly.

I got a letter from the optometrist a few days ago, saying it's time to get tested again. I may change optometrists, as I don't like this one much. When I got my glasses they didn't fit and they've been in denial ever since.

That would be good of you out the chart up again, I want to see if I can work out what Gyro is.

I think if we do anything too long we get sore muscles. I tend to do what you do, just keep going while motivated or till finished, then suffer for it.

Yeah that doesn't sound good. You should change then.

Yeah, I'll put it back up in a little bit. He could take the test too.

Yeah, I want to finish art so badly and I don't realize I'm in the same pose for hours. I need to remember to take breaks or force myself to stop which isn't easy.

Yeah I find that problem too when I do digital on anything but my tablet laptop. I like doing digital now, back before I got it, digital was a chore for me.
That's great you're making friends on YouTube. I found I can disconnect my YouTube and Google accounts so I have and I get YouTube emails in on my main email account now and not my Google one anymore.

Good luck at the optician!
Five string basses are rarer around here, are they more common over there?
Desthagirion on January 15th, 2011 01:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, when I got my first photoshop that was the only way I would color. Funny with all this stuff that's supposed to make things easier it does seem more of a chore to me now. But it's worth it. I hope I can get faster at it (since I'm super slow) and keep the quality.

Oh good. I know how much you hated that on youtube.
Thanks. Hopefully it will all go well and won't be too expensive.
I'm sure they have them at music stores since musicians would need to hit really low notes. There are even six string basses, but I don't see the point when the 6th string is on the high end. It's a C. That's what a guitar is for.

Good luck with your new contacts. It sounds like you really need them with your old glasses and contacts are giving you headaches. Have fun looking at the guitars, too!
Des: Prof. Cope without glassesthagirion on January 15th, 2011 01:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm sure these headaches are all visual related. I usually get eyebrow headaches where the pain is concentrated right over my right eyebrow.
That will be fun. Chris needs some new strings so we can pick those up.
