List of my userpics by order added

As I've mentioned a while back, I plan on replacing some of my userpics with more legible versions. (even though I've procrastinated that for probably at least a year now...)

Since I knew that doing that will cause me to lose track of what order I added my userpics, I kept a list of my userpics in my profile in order added - but I'm starting to run out of room on my profile now, so I moved it here and reformatted it into a table that hopefully looks better than the old layout.

Note that this excludes the following:
- Old versions of these userpics
- Alternate versions of some of these that I made to protest SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/etc. a few years ago

Icons/Userpics Meme

Well, looks like my Psychology class (while possibly not as reminiscent of the Forbidden Comment Threads as I was worried it'd be) is A) still going to be pretty tough and B) not yet guaranteed to never turn into a heated debate, even though one hasn't happened yet. Software Engineering and Game Graphics look like they're gonna be pretty tough too.

Things usually don't turn out this way until after I make a post saying that things are going well so far, so why isn't that the case this time? :(

Also, a meme I got from cactus_rs:

MS Paint meme

1. Comment and I'll pick one at least two of your LJ interests and draw you a picture, using MS Paint.
2. You have no say in what I draw you! Or in how much it will suck! (Which, in my case, hopefully shouldn't be too much unless I want to finish in one day...)
3. Put this in your journal. And the pic someone drew for you.

glowing_dragon drew this for me based on my interests of "more than 150 interests" and/or "151". All the interests listed in the picture are made up, by the way.


The end of the middle of the end of the beginning of the end of the beginning

I think I did pretty well on both of my finals today.

I finished my English test, but sadly, only because I stayed in class for 20 extra minutes. :(

I felt SO awkward giving my speech, though. Y'see, normally I write the notecards for my speech in my shorthand (because I don't know the official shorthand, so I make up my own). However, I've recently added some new symbols to my shorthand - any word that, when translated to Spanish, sounds like an English letter is replaced with that letter with a tilde (~) over it (as well as an accent in the case of "what" to distinguish it from "that", since in Spanish, those are "qué" and "que", respectively). Since I hadn't been using these as long, it was harder to read them, so I had to look at my notecards most of the time. Though, since everyone in the class says I did really well, apparently I did...

Tomorrow is my Spanish exam. All I have to do for it is write at least 100 words about almost anything in English beforehand (which I have) and translate it to Spanish in class. Shouldn't be too hard :)

Userpic Wars VI: I Might as Well

Since I included ᔕჷ :ʇᴉɯᴉƮ pǝǝdS in my userpic polls even though I had already made it (I just forgot to move it to the "recently made but not uploaded to LJ" list), and since I'm going to make some of these userpics whenever I have free time but don't feel like working on Moya's Space Log, I might as well include the already made userpics in the polls. The rest are still here and here.

Descriptions of new ideas:

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP - From the X-Files episode "Three of a Kind": Scully, drugged up, says, "My medical opinion: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!" and claps
Conga of the Apocalypse - From the Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People episode Homestar Ruiner: the Drive-Thru Whale says, "When the End Times come, we will all dance the Conga of the Apocalypse."
Dead Cows are Boring - From the X-Files episode "Bad Blood": Scully is not paying attention to Mulder's slides and says, "Dead cows are SOOOOO boring!"
Doubting Luma - a lemon yellow Luma says to Mario, "We have faith that you'll beat that monster, Mario! Uh, you will, right?!"
Green Pipe - Bowser says, "Why don't you just run off and go find some green pipe to hide in?!"
He Comes at You With a Knife and--BANANA CREAM! - Clyde Bruckman predicting how Mulder will die in the X-Files episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose"
If You Drink This, You Will Vomit a Wedding - From the advertisement for Powerthirst
No, YOU'RE Infected! - From the X-Files episode "Ice": Mulder & Scully hold each other at gunpoint, alternating saying, "No, YOU'RE infected!"
Xhoe-Files - Another one from Bad Blood: Mulder points to a guy's shoes and says, "THIS MAN'S SHOES ARE UNTIED!"
ΔΧΧΔΔΧ?! - the first thing Master Luma says in Super Mario Galaxy 2

afer ventus or the river sings backwards

As if Enya's connection to Mario Winans weren't enough...

Startling new evidence has been found that Waenya has existed since ancient Greek times! (And by "Waenya has existed since ancient Greek times" I mean "anytime I see something that sounds remotely like an Enya/Mario crossover, I must point it out no matter what".)

On the Wikipedia article on Enyalius:

"Enyalius or Enyalio in Greek mythology is generally a byname of Ares the god of war but in Mycenaean times is differentiated as a separate deity. On the Linear B Knossos Tablet KN V 52 the name E-nu-wa-ri-jo is interpreted to refer to this same Enyalios."
