If you see it…

I wrote this for an All Poetry new member contest, which I do not think I won honestly but I thought it was cute enough to share with you all…  basically we had to choose from a series of pictures and write something original for it. This was the picture I chose…

and here is the poem.  I gave the poem the title “If you see it”, which once you read it you will totally understand.

———————————————————–

have you seen my heart
it was lost to me
for I gave it away
oh so easily

where did it go
you must wonder I see
it was to a man who was
so much cuter than me

He wasn’t the right one
though I was so sure it was him
you’ll see when I tell you
oh how to begin…

the things he said
yes they seemed so right
the moments we shared
they blinded my sight

we danced under the stars
and toasted to the moon
a pretty little melody
that ended all too soon

so if you see it,
this lost heart of mine
just give me a call
pull a tab, drop a line.

Let me know what you think 🙂

about me… what…

The Sun

So I was looking at my “about.me” page and asking myself what the heck do I even write on this thing.  I mean seriously, what IS there about me that would possibly be all that interesting to anyone.  I mean anyone can list out things…

  • Who am I?
  • How old am I?
  • What have I done?
  • Where am I going?
  • Where have I been?

Geesh, that is soooo much to put on one page.  It really can’t be done and honestly, I wouldn’t want to read all that, and if I have to read all that, do I even want to bother getting to  know the person because what would I have to talk to them for?  I “already” would know everything.  Besides, I really am not just one page of things. That and I’m something different every single day.

Today I might be more of a 3D modeler (out of necessity simply because I’m going through the class presently in school! 🙂  ) whereas tomorrow I’m more of a “Mom – the kpop streamer” (Yes, I’m THAT girl!) or, “the dancing chef” while I make food in the kitchen with my wireless headphones on, or “the mad painter” as I work covered in acrylics by my easel hoping to actually get some on the canvas or I might even be “the little seamstress” as I work on the jackets I plan to make for an upcoming concert… or the … well you get the point.

There is no “one” me in my about.me.  I guess I do not like being put in a box, or labeled or being told who I am or what I cannot be because of my age, gender, or because of my abilities and/or disabilities, so I tend to keep everything kind of yep, this is what I am doing NOW.

If you want to know more about me.  Just ask 🙂

Oh, and update, I “finally” got my Maya to install with the help of one of their customer service.  It only took 5 or 6 of them to get to her.  It turned out to be a verification issue with my school’s email.  Boggle.  Yep, something that easy can bungle everything up.  All is working great now and I’m learning…..s.l.o.w.l.y…..

ah… the joys of Maya 2016….

So…. yeah….

It’s Tuesday, and I was all excited because my first class in 3-D Fundamentals was today.  Woot!  Not so woot, was trying to get Autodesk’s Maya 2016 to install.  Now, I already had Maya 2014, but apparently for this class I need the 2016 version.  Being that I have been a computer girl for 20+ years I figured, sure, NO problem, I’m so on this…. so I hopped over to the site, snagged my student edition with my newly created license.  Downloaded, (which took WAYYYYY longer than it should have) then proceeded to install..(again, way long)

So it’s installed, I’m psyched because I got it done hours before my class so yeah, I’ll be able to at least learn the UI and fiddle with some of the controls before class… Everyone likes to at least know what’s going on right?

Wrong…

Huge wrong….

big time, not going to happen, you’ve been played, “the cake is a lie” kind of wrong.

It refuses to activate the product, it does not like any of my product keys, it says files do not exist.  So for the next four + hours of my life, I’m on the phone with my school tech support, Autodesk live support, Autodesk email support (because of course they do not want to give me a live person to rant at about their wondrous product), hours later, I’m sitting here yet again, uninstalling the product, so I can attempt to create a “new” account, so I can get a “new” license, so I can download a “new” copy of this program.  This was at the suggestion of the 4th Autodesk tech I had the pleasure of dealing with today.  Hopefully this will fix it on my Windows PC, tomorrow I’ll worry about putting this product on my Macbook.

Can I go crawl into a corner and cry for awhile?

Oh, I did get one copy installed enough so I can use the “try me” version on my windows PC for class, during which I got a bunch of virtual cookies (Apparently that’s this professor’s thing!! Thankies ( 감사합니다 ) to Professor Bagsby @ Full Sail ) I learned quite a bit and even got to show my screen, though I did learn I have NO clue how to rotate when my hand is shaking cause I got stage fright!

for the record the chocolate ones were the best!

Sadly, I’ll be continuing to work on this tonight, but I thought I would share my glorious first adventure with Maya 2016! Maybe I’ll update the page if I ever figure this out!  Maybe it might help out some other unfortunate soul.

I’ll leave you with my current screen.

~~ Until next time~~
