Hello there! My name's Calum.
I'm a Fine Art student from Scotland - it rains all the time, but I like it!
Things I enjoy include: art (of all kinds), books, history, nice shoes, food, wine and exciting conversations.
There's some additional (incomplete) information about me in the Interests panel - when I'm asked to write down things I like I usually forget most of them.
My old username was The Zoof Wizard, which still causes me much confusion when I try to log in.
If you want to know anything else (or just feel like talking), feel free to comment me!

Ha, that's fine, it's so easy to get behind on commenting! I can also apologize for a delayed response as well~
This semester has just been very disappointing for me, classes haven't been what I've expected and things just don't feel quite right. I certainly hope things'll get better, and that's what I hope every day. Thanks for asking~
You're not having the best time either? Now that makes me sad. Would you be willing to tell me what's happened?
Yes, it's always good to stay positive. There's still an entire half of a semester left, I'm sure that we will definitely be able to make some great work despite the rocky first few weeks.
And your dissertation is going better than your studio work? How strange!! In a way, that's probably good though because art is something much more natural and what you're used to doing, so it can only go up from here.
Calum, I've been thinking about you a lot lately- you being one of the only Scottish people I know!!! I don't need to know what you voted, but I hope that all's well where you are and that you're not disappointed and remain optimistic. Campus has been alive with debate about Scotland, but I feel like I know too little about Scotland's politics and history (why do schools not teach about British civil wars? I learnt a bit about scottish history in the 16th C as part of my Spanish/Tudor course, but that's about it?? I feel ridiculously unintelligent when it comes to something practically on my doorstop) to make an opinion on it. But I've been reading about George Square and how terrible a certain minority of people are being, and well, I just hope you're ok.
Also you're looking dapper as ******** these days and I'm just sat here in admiration of your avatar. YEP PRETTY GOOD.
Also, where on earth is the mermaid gif in your profile from? It looks like an old popeye cartoon style... they all look a bit like Olive-Oyl? But maybe that's just the era of animation? I watched peter pan the other day and Disney's mermaids are nothing but hot bitches. Makes me mad. But at least the drowning lust is there.
So yeah I miss you and I'm sorry I haven't been too vocal lately. I'm a pretty terrible friend. heart
Wait, they're actually working on a new organizer? How in the world did I miss that?! Pfft, hahaha! Well, let's hope they keep their promise and release it, or a beta, soon!
Yup yup yup. Large, badly-organized events should always be questioned. They need to get their poop together, haha.
Wow, you start back on the 15th?! It's so late compared to where I go, so I'm kinda jealous! What courses will you be taking? Or will you mainly work on your thesis/dissertation?
And thanks, but unfortunately this semester has started out far from smooth for me. Hopefully it'll get better though.
Oh, you had a "behind the curtain" moment when someone had to draw the same line over and over again? Ayeayea! That must've been awkward! surprised
Mm, definitely, personality really counts in art! So many artists I know are perfectionists and can barely tolerate the few mistakes that end up making their work great. lol
This economy's definitely hard to beat. I do the same thing you do, sell old things in order to buy new things. Ugg, so much on this site that needs revamping. *crosses finger for new inventory organizer*
The convention was mostly a wreck because of technical problems and miscommunication, so lots of lines, lines, lines. In order to just pick our badges to get into the convention, we had to wait a total of five hours. Not to mention all of the other lines inside of the convention. emotion_puke Augh! I feel so sorry for your friend. Experiences that end up like that are never fun, especially when dramatic people are involved.
Ahhhhhh, summer's almost over already! When does school start back up for you?
Hey hey hey how are you? I miss you. I feel very sad because I have less and less time and incentive to come on gaia, but every time I come back something tends to infuriate me.
That link you sent me is wonderful. More people need to realise what a bad b***h Anne Boleyn was. What a hero. Also Isabella of Castille.
My job is ridiculous, but I'm saving up so I can take my driving test and get a car. It's a frustrating job, but there are good parts. Mainly discounts, but yeah asking every single customer for a boots card is ridiculous. Mostly it's stock and shelving I do though. I'm not pretty enough for the beauty counters or prissy enough for pharmacy.
I've been meaning to ask, do you have a twitter? <3
Well, let's hope that those companies will realize their errors one day and then provide the entire world with their streaming programs.
Ha ha, the Crack Fox one is really strange! Oh, did I ever tell you that at the Halloween party at my school, someone dressed up as Old Gregg? xd
You're definitely not the only one who appreciates traditional art more than digital. I completely agree with you actually. Sometimes it's difficult to get away from all of the digital art since there're so many illustrators out there nowadays. Oh, you saw the art that I drew for Syunii? Thanks~
Definitely! Almost everyone in the WG has original characters and back stories for them as well.
And you've stumbled across some bad writing too? It's kind of mean of me, but I have actually laughed out loud at some writing I've seen here on Gaia. Amateur role players are hysterical!
Thanks! A Hokusai print? Wow, what a compliment!
Oh man, the summer's almost over!!! Ahhh!
I'll definitely check out those items. Everything on here is pricy now, haha!
Yeah, I went to an anime convention. *coughnerdcough* It was kind of disastrous the first two days, so that really put a damper on the rest of the convention unfortunately. But it was still fun, got to see friends that I don't see very often~
