Alright, time for organization!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 2, 2011, 4:24 PM
First thing's first; sjafcshabf SUB RUNNING OUT SOON ;   ;
Lol, okay, now that that's over with...

It's been some time since I've made a serious journal entry on here; I've been avoidant of writing one for a while now.
Well, there's really not much to report; I got distinctions in my diploma course when I was in the midst of freaking out that I was failing [I've been told I have a habit of not acting stressed about anything - no, it just builds up on the inside kjdhdjsdf], so that's good. At the moment, I'm just saving money for possible travelling expenses next year, and still working hard at school.
Out of school, I've been into three things:
Studying German, reading history and cooking.

I really have fun with cooking, but, no one really wants to eat my meals ;    ;
I've made stuff such as:
*Weißwurst [which my German teacher scared me into thinking it was made of brain instead of veal...] with Hollandaise sauce and vegetables
*Bratwurst [YES MORE GERMAN FOOD] with mashed potatoes, beans and sweetened mayonnaise
*Lemon pudding sponge cake
*Fish pancakes
*Russian salad [comprised of mayonnaise, crab meat, onion, rice and corn]

It's sort of making me sad, I even battled with mum last night to make that Bratwurst meal. I really wish someone here liked the food I liked and let me cook for them. : It's somewhat depressing... Well, either way, I'm going to keep cooking, so...
I'd really like to learn how to cook some German torte, or fancy cakes. ;   ; Apparently I'm being taught how to make Black Forest Cake this week at German lessons, that will be fun if it happens.

German lessons are going well; I'm always away Wednesday nights to be with them [I always eat dinner with them etc]. The children [there's 6 of them] are somewhat overwhelming energy wise, but I try my best to keep them entertained. The whole family really likes me and it almost scares me that people could be so nice. I'm not really used to it...

Art is going slowly but I'm getting more into it; I'm not sure about unhiding my gallery still... Anyone have an opinion? I'm trying to make my dA look a bit more simple/professional for some reason, I don't really know why. I don't get that many commissions, I'm not really sure how to promote work, either. I'm not the type to get up in everyone's face and force people to buy stuff, so.
I don't know jfdhjsfj, I'm quite unsure about the future.

I hope you're all doing well.

I guess your mom isn't used to exotic foods? Don't worry, my mom is like that too, not to mention my sister. It takes a little time for some people to get used to. But I'm happy you enjoy cooking, and have found some German recipes! I should give you some Finnish recipes (either written down by me or from the internet). Believe me, we have tasty things too. (:

And I'm happy to hear that your German teacher and his/her family is nice to you. It's always nice to meet people that are friendly and not so reserved and rude.

Maybe win your mum over by cooking familiar meals instead of diving straight into the exotic German stuff? I like to cook too and it's always easier to convince people I can cook by making a nice salad or proper meal before going off the rails! (Mind you people have started to warm to my risottos and asparagus bakes now!)

If you're wanting to make get a more professional gallery of your work out there it may be an idea to try another medium. deviantArt isn't really the platform for recruiting professional artists, more like commissioning skilled ones for one-off commissions! I'd suggest [link] behance as a place to put your more serious work, keep dA for a combo of the pro stuff and the fun stuff! :D
