Americans are funny. Just today, they released the news that Suddam's sons are now dead. At dinner, my dad was watching the news and I heard that after the news struck, the stock market went up. O_o; Now is there something I'm just not seeing here or is there really a correlation between death and the stock market? I know, I know, people are happy and feeling more confident in their nation and all that crap, but for crying out loud, when was the last time you went "I feel my nation's leaders are doing a good job. Now lets go spend money!"? ^_^;;; Americans are funny like that.

I had a midterm in my socio class today. -_- In all honestly, it wasn't too horrible, but it took me a little while to think of all that I needed to say. You see, I've written nothing in that class. By "nothing," I literally mean "nothing." I have not once jotted down any lecture notes. Nor have I had to do any writing assignments in the class. Essentially, my teacher's a pushover. It's not like I really need hard facts like dates either. On the midterm, he was just looking for an understanding of the material. ^_^ I can do that easily without having to refer to notes. XD

Let me just say that I like ink a hell of a lot more than charcoal. In art, we've been working with ink for the last three days or so and I find that I can handle it much better than compressed charcoal. Of course, maybe charcoal would have been easier for me if I used a charcoal pencil as opposed to compressed charcoal sticks, but that's besides the point. ^_^; Ink, while something I find myself messing up with in minor ways, is much easier to work with. I guess it's because prior to this class, the only medium I've had to draw with was a graphite pencil. A pen's not too much of a deviation from a pencil. They still make the same types of lines. Oh, and shading with inks is much easier than shading in charcoal if you ask me. Washes are a cinch by comparison. Maybe that's because I've had some painting experience for the last few years at the least. As for the subject matter we're working with, we're currently working on the human form. Agh, the human form sucks. Stupid proportion crap. -_- It seems simple enough; I look at people all day. Unfortunately, it's still easy enough to mess it up on paper. Luckily for me, I've done some self-study on the human form before, but things are still rather annoying. Meh, it's a good learning experience though.

GGXX is fun. Check it out folks. Buy it at your local game store. You'll like it. XD

Yeah the human form is a tad difficult. When you learn how to do hands really well, please teach me!

True, but considering the nature of the American market, while it is influenced by outside factors, it is most often influenced by the American populous. As such, I think it's a fairly reasonable assumption that Americans caused the jump in stock prices.

Well, Americans aren't the only people who invest in stocks.

I'm just saying you shouldn't single people out.

I'm speaking about nationality here. You gotta admit, the majority of the American population is composed of American citizens.

Americans aren't the only people living in America, you know.
