So jewish eh? Well I'm not! So I don't have to do anything tommorow!

     Go like 50% Jewish population in Bethesda! For those of you who may not know, we (as in Montgomery County "we") have tommorow off. Yes, this is good. And for those of you who are Jewish who have to do stuff: HAHAHAHA! YES! GO MY LAZY RELIGION! Really, I celebrate all my catholic holidays, but I find that the Bible has waaaaay too many inconsistancies to be trusted, so instead, I choose to be realistic. Being a realist is similar to Aetheism, but you aren't quite ready to say "I believe in nothing." This is also know as being agnostic. But saying "I'm agnostic" sounds so stuck up and snobby... but then again, saying "I'm a realist" is pretty bad too cause that makes it sound like believening a religion is unrealistic... forget I said anything!
     Really (not only in defense of myself), I respect anyone who has enough faith in something to truly believe in it. I can honestly say that I have trouble believing the teachers when they give me an answer. Let alone some far-fetched tale of great power and suffering written by a people who put fevered and delusional women in places where they were said to have had visions of god. But hey, that's just me. Anyway, I've been working on my doodling power a lot, and I finally have a more refined style. I'm only gonna put up one of my doodles to try to just give you a taste of what I've been doing. Here's some chick who doesn't look too bad. The only issues I'm running into right now is drawing profiles (I can get the eyes, but not the mouth!) and getting some kind of breast on my women. They are all shots taken from the front, and they have 0 bust. I just can't figure out how to doodle it. Well, okay, I'll give you one more doodly, but only cause I'm in a good mood! Experimentation with profile.

Yeah, it's always sort of annoyed me how Christian holidays are primarily fun and candy while Jewish holidays are about repentence and four hour long services in a langauge you can't understand. Of course, Rosh Hasshanah has the extra special treat of listening someone blow into a ram's horn for half an hour. In fact, the only fun Jewish holiday (excluding americanized Hannukah) is Purim, during which everyone is strongly encouraged to get drunk and generally enjoy themselves. Ah well, I finally managed to convince my mother that religion is my choice so I don't have to go tomorrow, anyway.

I suppose you could call me athiest, but I do believe there is a chance of higher powers. The thing is that I just don't see any reason to care that they exist.

Once again, huzzah for Azumanga Daioh eyes! I know that I have no business giving advice on drawing, but when you're not looking for detail don't you just draw two upward facing half-circles and a bit of shading underneath for the shadows?

Well, I tried that, and to say the least, it looked... awkward...
