Sam Spratt’s Halloween Portrait Contest!
In brief: Likes and Reblogs of this image are each entries in the contest to win a portrait of you drawn by me.
In slightly less brief: To those new to this, that means that should you be the random winner, I would draw a portrait of your beautiful face (or someone’s face you care about)… as a horrifically ugly, flesh-eating, undead walker-face. It’s like winning the lottery! (except not at all like that…) That said, it is the best emotional preparation possible should you fall victim to the zombie apocalypse and run (walk slowly) across a mirror in the wreckage of your once beautiful town. (I will also draw you as anything halloween/horror themed, but the undead are a favorite).
Doing each of the following counts as an entry:
Facebook: Comment and/or Share this image >HERE<
Tumblr: Like and/or Reblog this image
Twitter: Following @samspratt and tweeting “Entering to win a portrait of myself drawn as the undead by @samspratt ! http://on.fb.me/RPNehj ”
Contest closes on Sunday Oct. 28th at midnight EST
PS Yes, that’s a drawing of The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes as a Walker
Yes, this is the Limited Edition 4-disc Original Game Soundtrack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
A+ to Demi Lovato. This is so insensitive (and SO inappropriate) of DC, it’s appalling. It’s also appalling to me that less than 10 years ago, their original shows had episodes about the DANGERS of eating disorders and were more focused on self-esteem building and positive female-female friend relationships and now are focused on getting sexual attention and becoming flash-in-the-pan famous. And joke about the issues they used to take seriously.
F- to Disney Channel’s new programming ever since the 2004 changeover. F—
I could write like 30,000 words about the causes/effects/problems with the New Girl Media in post-9/11 America, but I won’t. Mostly because no one would care, but also because I have to go write another 30,000 words about the media messaging influence in the Hunger Games. :|
Also I already wrote a post about it this morning. And I sound like a broken record.
GOD BLESS YOU^, THIS POST, AND DEMI LOVATO!
Props to Disney Channel, because no one cares about your made up problems.

Well, if you guessed anything other than Finals Week, you might have been right, but not when it comes to what I was referring to. It’s that time during college that every student dreads (unless they’re geniuses, and don’t even stress about it (The dicks…)). It’s during this time that you start to see the libraries packed with students who are last minute cramming for their exams the next day, overreactions about the simplest things as a result of stress, and an increase in suicide rates among college students (They just can’t handle the thought of living life as a failure (And I don’t blame them, I wouldn’t want failures living either)). So far, I have yet to begin stressing out, as I have found that it does nothing but produce negative results. By relaxing, and taking things slowly, I have found myself able to concentrate more easily, providing an enjoyable Finals experience.
Now to all those who aren’t quite taking things the way I am: Maybe if you knew the material in the first place, you wouldn’t be so stressed about it because you would automatically have a higher chance of success. I mean come on, It’s not that difficult to understand; if you were in a class for an entire semester, and find yourself freaking out about not knowing what’s on the exam, YOU CLEARLY DIDN’T LEARN JACK SHIT AND ARE WASTING TIME AND MONEY.
Needless to say, I’m cramming for my Final, not because I don’t know the material, but because I decided to procrastinate in the class and am now reliant on this one grade to find out if I get to pass on to the next course.
But at least I’m not stupid.
