For the past week, I've had tons of Science Olympiad + extracurricular events. I was gone this Saturday to compete in an invitational.  Because of this, I have to reschedule many of my classes and attend make-ups. Basically, I'll be packed for the next two weeks to catch up on my work. 

Well, about Science Olympiad. This was the first time I competed for this school year. Our team was 7th place out of 25 schools, so it wasn't bad I guess. Well, our school only had one team, and the rest had up to four teams. Since the school that hosted the event wasn't eligible for team awards, we technically ended up with 4th place overall and got a little trophy. yay(?)

Still, I completely failed a building event (17th place) But I wasn't the one who designed the structure. I was put on the event just to compete, but it's still kind of my fault we did badly because I didn't help make a better design. Our pencil snapped in half, the vehicle was shot backwards, we had fifty construction violations, and ugh. I don't want to get into it.

Also, I'm pretty sure my friend is pissed at me because we got 9th place in Meteorology, even with a score of 29/83. That means over 50% of the other teams got lower than that! Obviously, you can conclude that it was excruciatingly difficult. I swear I studied for hours, but nothing I studied was part of the actual test. It just asked questions about really obscure topics and was one of the multiple choice tests that used the "All of the above" and "None of the above." I was quite upset about that, too. He's actually extremely smart and knows everything about this stuff, but by the look of his face, he really didn't know most of the answers while we were taking the test.
I also forgot my school ID and had to run back and get it before the test started. Then, I forgot my inhaler. I'm not even kidding: during the whole test my hands were visibly trembling from a lack of oxygen or something, but maybe it could have been worry.
The school who wrote that test had two competing teams. Each won first and second place in Meteorology. I really suspect cheating there, but I don't have any evidence to prove it.

Well, what did I do well on? There was fossils. We actually placed 6th and got a medal, woo hoo! I'm kind of disappointed though because I really expected better than that. I was actually really confident on the test, but we got a lot of identification questions wrong. Everything else, I knew. Halfway through, my partner admitted he never studied at all and that he lied to me. I screamed right there, in the middle of the test. Good job, partner. Anyway, I forgive him for that because he was actually good at finding the stuff, and also brought a useful field guide.

How do I conclude this...? Haha I don't really know but on the bright side I met one of my friends that I haven't seen since third grade.
Taken from DerpInc 

1. What was your favorite moment of the past year?
I didn't really accomplish much lmao. There were a lot of great moments, and a lot of bad ones >.<
well, i got tortoises and made a whole bunch of new friends! 

2. How was your year? Good, bad, or somewhere in between? 
somewhere in between, i guess. I really improved in my art and music skills this year, so i'm just really happy and proud about that :D I also finished composing about sixteen songs! a lot of them aren't uploaded online yet lmao.

3. Any friends you made the past year that you're thankful to have met/ made?
Some people i've known the year before, but weren't really close with haha
basically last year i started to become a lot closer to them <3
you probably don't know them so i drew them:
Athena by DragonFang17 Gavin by DragonFang17 Shreya by DragonFang17 Yeezus by DragonFang17 Ellen by DragonFang17 Cal by DragonFang17 Melissa by DragonFang17
and of course you arceus4daween (I WAS TOO LAZY TO DRAW YOU)
everyone else i've basically known for way more than last year

4. Most embarrassing thing to happen to you?
walking around in public dressed up in a really bad dave strider cosplay; everyone knew i was wearing a wig and i wasn't a boy. it got me a lot of weird looks. UGH.

5. What are your plans for the coming year?
i'm planning to start an animation project. :O it's a pretty big deal but i gotta start small.
and then i need to keep composing eeeuuggghguhg

6. Anything life-changing happen during your 2015?
hm, not that i can remember. 

7. Favorite film to come out?
interstellar! but i think that was 2014??? star wars then.

8. Favorite television series?
adventure time, gravity falls, and steven universe

9. Favorite song?

10. What are your predictions/ expectations of 2016?

i'm 90% sure crush likes me back im going to cross my fingers on that
I suppose there were already millions of journals made yesterday titled "Merry Christmas." I was planning to submit a journal at that time, but my dad blocked the internet before I could.

Nevermind that. All I can say now is hope you had fun today with your family/friends! Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, spend this holiday season to relax, or get done with things that have been stressing you out.

Hm, I'm pretty thankful for the few gifts I did actually get. They included a crystal growing kit, sunscreen, a portrait of me by my friend, a drawing of my OC, a monster plushie, and $70 in cash. To be honest I didn't really want anything this year. I spent most of this month and last month drawing portraits for my friends who never really gave me anything in return.

Oh, and yes. Melzurai :iconmelzurai: has given me so much support over the past couple of days! She also drew me a beautiful illustration of my OC as a present. Check it out!
[R] DragonFang17 by Melzurai
I just want to say thanks once again, but if you will, give her a watch or leave a nice comment on her page. She really deserves it.

Ah, last of all. This seems a bit selfish, but if you want to give me a late Christmas present, that would totally be cool! I know you guys can't physically give me anything, but off the top of my mind, commissioning me or even just sketching one of my OCs would totally make my day. 
I must inform you that every 100 points given to me in commissions will include a free track of my music. 
You can choose anything on this page:

For clarification, all those people in the cover art are my OCs! Feel free to draw them and tag me in the image. I don't care if it's just a sketch; I'll love it!

Once again, happy holidays to you all. Time to look forward to 2016 now, huh? Let's hope it's nothing like 2015.
As I'm starting to write this I have no idea how long this will be. First of all, let me start off with an explanation as of what this is. 
Originally, I had an OC named Llyona Fang, which is a misspelling of part of my real name, and my Chinese last name.
I began to adapt that as my alias online, and have hundreds of followers under that name on different sites (G+ and tumblr).
Basically, I realized that it would be odd to name the OC the same thing as my alias. I don't want to look like a roleplayer, but there was no other name that would fit my OC. I've been planning to make a 10 minute pilot episode with my OCs, starting off with my musical composition.

My OCs appear in the cover art of my music, such as this (sorry most of these are months old and not very good):
Wind-up storm by DragonFang17Cacophony Of Rain by DragonFang17Siberian Rainfall - Sheet Music by DragonFang17Empathy's Fire by DragonFang17Light of Dawn by DragonFang17Midnight Bereavement by DragonFang17Clockwork Masquerade by DragonFang17Divine Breeze by DragonFang17

I'm in dire need of a new name for Llyona (shown in the first three drawings). As I said, there seemed to be nothing that fit her so I need name suggestions.
I would really want to keep Llyona as her name, but that pressures me to change my tumblr url and internet alias. The only other names I go by were Dragon, ALH, and some Chinese names that nobody could read. Not many people knew me by those names except for old internet friends.
I'm sorry, everyone, for acting like this is a huge deal but it's been bothering me for months. I really don't want to put my real name online, but I need to give credit to myself by an actual name that isn't the same name as my protagonist.

Question 1: Should I keep her name as Llyona?

Question 2: If not, what are some names you can suggest or like from the list below?

New names I was thinking of (you know what this sounds really stupid but I want a fantasy-sounding name):
Ceariss, Celvanne, Xianne, Fennora, Nyris, Ledrina, Cierra, Melody, Arisse, Demera, Lexanne, Erce, Viexxa, Yvenne

Anyway, I bet you understand what kind of name I'm going for right now, but please give suggestions.

(Edit: all three people who responded to me in one way or another said they liked the name Melody.
In my opinion, the name fits her well, but it's a common name. I guess it would be fine, as a lot of well-known story characters have common names like John or something like that. Still, I want more feedback on this if you can!)
I'm so sorry; I'm not very good at writing stuff like this and it will probably be short.
I'm going to note that today is Friday the 13th, a superstitious unlucky day. To be honest, everything was going great for me. Just an hour ago, I found out about the attacks, that at least 150 people had been killed. It's tragic; I know. It was shocking and I honestly didn't believe it at first. I can't really do much but pray for the relatives and friends of the 150 lost souls and those who are wounded. God be with you, and hope the rest get well soon.

Here was a thing one of my friends reshared. I'm not sure if this can be verified, but the main idea is that if you're in Paris, stay at home with your family or friends and don't go out alone.
(please tell me more verifiable details in the comments, I'll edit this to be more factually accurate)

i'm starting to get really inactive
basically im starting a lot of drawings and just not finishing them
so everything will pretty much be in my scrapbook and there wont be many actual deviations for quite some time
Currently i'm focusing most of my attention on my music
i'm just really busy right now, so I apologize for the lack of art.

also do you guys want me to write more journals or are journals bothering and sort of like spam to read?

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
when i first got commissioned. i earned 20¢ ( :( ) i still have only earned 40¢ from commissions at this moment and i really hope i have watchers who have money that can commission me

"I keep hearing that people mostly want core membership to get their names more out there. Because people on this site have gotten so used to great artists having memberships, and artists with less talent having no membership. Like, what the hell? So instantly, people will think that someone with no star next to their name, must mean their art sucks, right? No. You need to actually look at someone's art to know if it sucks or not. Shocking revelation, isn't it? Just because someone can't afford a membership, doesn't mean their art sucks. Soon, because of the price increase, less people will have core memberships, meaning people will get more used to amazing artists having no memberships. Give it time. Either people will finally get used to core, or deviantART staff will change it back (which is highly doubtful). They need to make money, they need a higher revenue to compete with other sites and to keep this site running. People need to understand this and accept it. But what do I know, I'm just starting to sound like i'm pulling shit out of my ass. I still support core, and people just need to learn to live without a membership if they can't afford one." -aetherialstardust
