...tendency to disappear right before your eyes. Before you it know a week, month, year, or more has passed. Wether it be joy, sorrow, or both, nothing you want to keep stays the same long enough. And nothing you want changed changes fast enough.

Hence, here I am over a year since my last submission. How capable of frequent updates I will be, only time will tell. Alas, I have a new camera (Sony DSC-T100) and a new laptop (MacBook Pro 15" 2.4GHz) on my side of the battle against time, the sunset, the looming end of each day, and the ever reminder that I need sleep.

But for now, sunset eight hours gone, yet again it is time to admit defeat.

So...
Here are the rules:

The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic: (6) weird habits/things/secrets and people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their devpage comments and tell them to read yours....


Six weird habits or interesting tidbits about me:

1. I have long blonde hair, and yes, i'm a guy, and no i'm not gay :P
2. My favorite pair of shoes are worn down, and there's a big hole by the big toe on the right shoe. but i'm gonna keep them till i need duct tape to keep them on my feet cause their the comfiest shoes i've ever had.
3. I bite my nails.
4. I memorize everything visually and three dimensionally. I've always had a hard time remembering peoples names unless i write it out in text in my mind and memorize how their name looks written in text.
5. A few years back i had a couple of pairs of old underwear which eventually developed two holes in them. The reason for the holes was that i spent 10-18 hours a day sitting on front of a computer m/ :P
6. I often feel like the physical world we live in way to limited, i can't express thoughts in my mind as easily and quickly as i would like. I often feel like i wanna do so many creative things relating to so many different media outputs but there's never enough time. I just feel like the human mind isn't connected to the physical world in the way it should be.


and if there was a #7, it'd probably be that i'm just plain fucking weird... :P

if you were unlucky enough to be tagged by me and therefor are reading this, don't blame me, blame the bitch (burnthewitches) who tagged me... yes, you bitch ;)... lol
yepp, i've completed another lap around the sun today, 20 laps complete, somewhat of a depressing number, but oh well... lol

sorry if my update frequency both regarding deviations, and journal entries have been, well, at almost complete lack the past like, errr... 8? months... or something... anyway, just haven't had much of a good time in life in general till a few months ago when things looked up quite a bit :) (of course shit happening on other ends instead, but thats life i guess :P)... anyway... errr... yeah, i forgot why i was writing this entry to be honest by now... lol... i'll promise to submit more photos and such, but don't have me executed or something, cause well, i probably wont be able to keep to that promise cause i'm busy, having a rough time with life in general, or just not feeling like doing anything creative at all and being lazy for a few days just watching movies or killing things with big guns in some games (or driving around town at +300KM/h in a Porche Carrera GT in nfs: most wanted :P)... basically, you get my drift... i'm not a photography machine, i do it when it i feel like it and i feel inspired or creative or just plain feel like doing it... which is quite often, but sometimes shit just happens...

...uhm, yeah... i have no clue what this post is about, nor why i started writing anymore... maybe its just tiredness getting me hard, but i don't feel sleepy, so must be brain killing tiredness just :P
I'm what you'd say in geek terms "alive" here again, well, "alive, or something like it" fits better, even with the general state of my life the past few months or so...

I've been crappy with submitting, well, anything at all since May... so i finally have some time, feel like maybe actually doing something productive again. I just submitted the first of a few photos i prepared earlier this summer while i still felt like there was a point to anything... so i'll be submitting the rest of those in the next few days...

After that, i have somewhere around 1500-2000 photos i've taken and never really looked at, so i'll be going through them and there's sure to be something worth submitting. Most of the photos were taken during the spring.

And with that, i'm gonna end this post... not that i have to type this last part, but what the hell, got nothing better to do right now than add some more words to this for the pure reason of "just for the hell of it", and maybe ranting, which i have a tendency to do quite often...
...or something like it...

just thought i'd post some slight updates, or rant, or whatever here... lol...

havn't had time to come around here any the past few weeks, with all the being without my laptop while it was on repair for 2 weeks while i was in sweden, and traveling back to greece, having loads of work n whatnot...

its kinda slowing down, and i've found some time for myself to have a look, and submit some of the 1100 something photos i took durning my 6 week stay in sweden from middle of march...

i've submitted 5 new deviations today here, all from my laptop fixin' n candy eatin' trip to sweden... lol

hopefully life wont be keeping me all to busy within the somewhat close future so i wont have time to submit anything... this is one of the most hectic periods of the year for me tho...

well, now that its almost 5am... and i'm still sitting here, i believe i'm gonna go get some sleeeeeeeeeeeeep! lol
after over 2 weeks without my laptop, i'm finally getting it back tomorrow, all fixed, repaired and so on... going for a 2 hour drive (oneway) to stockholm tomorrow, to pick it up... hopefully everything works perfectly... and i can be back in heaven again, or something like that, at least better off then i was when it wasn't working properly... lol

i havn't really gotten around to do much of anything on here, not even posting comments, cause the only internet i've had available is via my grandpa's 266MHz P2, 64MB ram, PC... which, is almost slower in processing power than my cell phone is at times... basically, browsing DA here lags the whole machine up quite often...

...but tomorrow i'll have my laptop back, so i'll be back as normal submitting photos again soon... during the past 2 weeks i've taken about 500 photos (thank god for my aunt who let me dump the first 300 something photos on her pc when the 256MB card in my camera got full last week) of anything and everything, and i'm sure there's a few good ones in there somewhere... not to mention, i still have older photos that i havn't gotten around to submitting...

and now, i'm off to bed, sleep...
  • Reading: Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
so, well... yeah... i just submitted 20 photos in the past few hours... reason for this you may wonder? lol... well, basically, i'm gonna backup everything on my laptop here (around 10 dvdr's worth of data), before i turn it in on the warranty to sort some issues out that i've unfortunately had... just my luck... lol

anyway, i figured i'd get some photos up i've been planing on getting up for a while, along with a few recently taken... so...... have a look at my gallery jimeh.deviantart.com/gallery/ if you wanna see them... some are quite good, some are less good and whatever if you ask me... but thats life i guess... lol... also worth mentioning is that some will be available in upto 10x15" prints as i used my aunts 4mp camera for a bit while i was at her place the other day... lol... not that i'm actually selling prints like butter or even close to it... but what the heck, as far as i know no one's ever gotten killed for some slight self-advertising... lol

anyway, for the next 1-2 weeks, i wont be around much, since i wont have a laptop :P... my grampa who i'm staying with here in sweden has a computer, but its 8 years old, 233MHz P2... real speed daemon there... i almost have calulators that are faster... lol... basically, i wont be getting any work done on that machine anyway... lol

now i'm gonna head off, decide on a final ultimate collection of about 220 songs to put on my ipod shuffle, which i'll have to listen to for the next 2 weeks in worst case... lol... then i have a awesomely fun task of burning somewhere around 40GB i believe, or about 10-12 dvdr discs worth of data off my 80GB hd in this thing... woooohoooooiiee... but hey, at least its a 4x dvd burner, and not 2x... lol

and last but not least, thank you everyone that commented and :+fav:'d my photo in the past few days... unfortunately tho, i don't have the time to answer and personally thank everyone (i had over 100 message center items in like 24 hours... its fucking awesome, but also sucks when i don't have time to thank everyone of you personally... one of those good/bad kinda things :(... oh well)... its great to know that ppl like my work (even tho its all mainly just shooting photos while being bored at all kinda different things and then quickly enhacing colors (the camera handles colors really bad, its all greyish) and putting a frame around it, taking about 10-20 min on them, minimum input for maximum output... lol)...

well, i'm gonna get cracking with my playlist and backing up my data...

cya

life goes on

Fri Mar 25, 2005, 3:08 AM
...so after my hellish trip, to get to sweden here, i've just kinda tried becoming human once again... took a few days i gotta add... lol

eitherway, life does go on... and i've been a bit busy with stuff here, meeting relatives and old classmates and so on...

and today its my aunts birthday aswell (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! if you're reading this... lol)... i honestly don't remember what she's turning today tho :/... thing come in and fly out the other ear on me a tad to much (unfortunately its mainly the lame geek stuff that gets stuck... lol)... so, i'm gonna have a shower and head into the city here after i'm done writing this...


this is quite a bit delayed... but i've sold my first prints :D

Life in Frames by jimeh Metro by jimeh Through the Ages by jimeh Above Realization by jimeh Kathari Deutera by jimeh

thank you Luppina :hug: hope you get good use of the postcards :D


and while i'm thanking people, i should also thank everyone thats commented/fav'd on my pieces in the past few days :)... thank you!... sorry if i havn't replied or left you a lil comment or something, havn't had time... i'm gonna try to get back to everyone with some kinda personal thank you, but if you don't get a personal thank you, you're not ignored, just a victim of time, or rather the lack of it, actually my lack of time... lol

i wish days were 72 hours long, and that i never needed to sleep! maybe then i'd have time for everything... days are just to damn short, and then you add sleeping aswell... arrggg... could drive one insane, probably has... lol


and i thought i'd lay it out about how awesome my digicam is... basically, its far from awesome, really far! not as far away from it as possible, cause that would probably be the cam in my T630 cell phone with a picture of a whole ass wooppin 0.1 megapixels... lol... anyway, i got a 2 years old Nikon CoolPix 2100, 1.8 megapixels, woooohooooooiiee ...not, but its what i got... i'm looking into digicams here in sweden tho, and there are a few good ones for quite nice low prices (5 megapixels and such)... only problem is, cause of my damn trip and having to buy another ticket, (which was about half the price of one of those cameras), its gonna even harder to get one... not i actually would have had enough money even if i would have made my first flight and didn't have to buy another ticket the day after, just a bit further away economically... lol... anyway, i'll see what happens...

so, right, i was gonna have a shower and head off into the city... probably should get started on that, before i stuck here on DA a few more hours forgetting the time and such... lol

cya ;) (anyone that might actually be reading this, all the way down here even... lol)

...finally

Tue Mar 22, 2005, 8:22 AM
well, i've finally arrived here in Gävle, in sweden... what a fucking trip... lol

from 2pm on friday, when i left Ios with the ferry, till 7:52am local time in sweden (8:52am in greece), when i arrived with the train in gävle...

it all started when i arrived in athens, 11pm on friday night, got into omonia, and went to the normal hotel we always stay at... where i was told they were full, not a single room free... i was just like "wtf?! its MARCH! IN GREECE!!"... they'd gotten some group that took up the whole hotel... just my luck... lol... i found another hotel 50m down the road tho that was quite good...

the next morning i headed out to the airport around 11:30am after checking outta the hotel, to drop off my bags and shit so i wouldn't have to carry those around the whole day, since my flight was 8:55pm...

i'd made plans with Leto (Luppina) to meet up for a coffee at starbucks in... err shit, i can't remember the name of the area... lol :P... basically the metro station between Omonia and Syntagma... starts with a P... lol
anyway, i headed back into the city with the metro from the airport 4pm... was meeting at 5pm... i got to starbucks about 4:45pm or so... and i was a bit surprised that starbucks didn't have coke, oh well... lol... the company was better then their coffee... was a pretty interesting meeting with Leto there, she's cool, and not to mention, check her gallery, some pretty good photos there :)

...that was pretty much the only positive thing for the rest of the trip till i arrived on monday... lol...

i headed back and took the metro abit before 7pm i believe, shouldn't be a problem, the metro goes directly from sytagma to the airport... as it turns out tho, i was wrong... lol...

when i got to the last station before the airport, the lights went out and everybody was instructed to get off the train cause it was the last stop... i was just like WTF?!... turns out i had to wait about 25min before the next train came, by this time it was 8pm, the train left, me on it, thinking i should make it, cause its only like 15min to the airport from that station... again, i was wrong, cause after a few km down the track just, it stopped, and stood there for around 15 min... i was starting to get quite nervous and shit... lol... eventually i got to the airport, with about 20 min left before my flight was leaving, had to run about half a km into the airport from the metro station, pickup my bags (which were damn heavy) and run another half km across the whole airport cause the checkin for my flight was of course right at the other end... lol... when i got to the checking desk, there was probably like 10-15 left till my flight should leave, and i could hardly talk, not to mention breathe, and i was told i could just forget about it, the flight had left already...

so, after this dude just telling me to forget about it and disappear  for 5-10 min, and me trying to convince them to drive me out to the plane or whatever cause i wasn't convinced it'd already left, he told me to follow this girl that was working there... she checked when the next flight for stockholm was... next direct flight was on wednesday, but there was a flight via copenhagen to stockholm the next day, on sunday... i was told that i should come back the day after about 2 hours before the flight was leaving to get a cheaper last minute flight cause the current price was 250 euro... i asked about seat availability, and was told thats nothing to worry about, there's no way it'll be full...

so, after spending roughly 13 hours in the airport, over night, i went back to SAS's desk there about 12pm on sunday, and i got told the flight was full, completely, there was even 2 ppl over booked, so 3 ppl would have to miss the flight if i'd have a chance in hell to get a flight... not to mention my budget wasn't the best in the world, and the flight to copenhagen alone would cost 140 euro, and she didn't know how much the flight from copenhagen to stockholm would cost... so i was just like fuck fuck walking around the airport, in a wonderfull mood... and then i thought to check what other flights that were going towards scandinavia, and found a maersk flight for copenhagen aswell, which was leaving about an hour before the other overbooked flight... only the maersk flight was also fully booked, but after some hassle and whatnot, i managed to get a standby ticket 30 min before the flight was leaving... i'd been on the phone with my parents, and my mom had been calling every 10 min almost (parents you know... lol)... but they'd checked trains on the internet from home, cause i had extremely limited access to the internet once the wireless card i'd bought ran out... so by the time i arrived in copenhagen, my parents had called my grandpa who i'm staying with here atm, so he'd gone down and bought a ticket for me that i could pickup in Malmö... i grabbed a train from copenhagen to malmö, and i got some quite cool shots of the sunset and stuff there...

i walked around in the malmö train station for about 6 hours after picking up my ticket, bought some swedish candy and varmkorvar (hot dogs) which were like heaven to eat...

eventually i arrived in gävle the day after, 8am on monday, after jumping trains 6am in stockholm...

i met some relatives and stuff yesterday, thought i would just fucking take it easy... not touch electronics really... lol... also i ran into an old classmate from 3rd grade in a sibylla (fast food, hot dogs, and stuff) shop last night, was kinda weird actually... last thing i expected was to run into someone i know when i walked in there... lol... the hotdog was fucking great eitherway tho :D... lol

and here now i got my wireless router working with my grampa's adsl connection today, which is fucking heaven, even tho its only 512k, but compared to my 64k isdn... i'm in heaven... well, i have 128k isdn as of a few weeks back at home (i'm the only one on Ios with anything faster than 64k isdn... lol)... altho i'm sure i'll leach my aunts 10mBit/s a few times during my 2-3 week stay here... lol... specially since i'm gonna turn in my laptop on warranty for some unlucky issues i've had with it, and that'll take like 1-2 weeks before i get it back, or get a new one back... lol

okay, well... err..... yeah, i think i should leave this journal post at this, before it'll be long as a book... and if you've actually managed to read through the hell of my trip, and the boring writing of my extremely great rant like writing skills that i'm showing off (not) here, congrats!!... and thank you... lol... i would probably cut/edit/delete big parts of this before posting it, if i wasn't to lazy to read through it all, and change stuff... so, fuck it... this is a so called first draft within writing, and i'm gonna leave it like that... lol :P

  • Listening to: 3 Doors Down's latest album, just got it...
well, i'm sitting here at athens international airport, using their wireless internet connection which is backed by a 1mBit/s ADSL line -- there's no one else using it, i'm getting full bandwidth :D -- killing time till my flight leaves 9pm... lol

yes, i'm leaving greece, going to sweden for 2-3 weeks, sort some stuff out, eat a shitload of candy, and my "shitload", i mean like 3-4kg!! i ate about 2kg last time in the 2 weeks i was there... hardly ever get hold of it you know, so i go insane when i can just go buy it in any supermarket or whatever... lol... oh right, also going there to meet relatives and some old friends and such, and to see something different for a bit... never hurts you know, never hurts...

i'll be without my laptop for about 1-2 weeks tho, cause i'm taking the opertunity of returning on warranty while i'm up there, cause i've had some minor issues with it, which shouldn't happen, but since i'm me, it has to happen to me, welcome to my lucky world.... lol

so, probaby not gonna be a lot of submissions for the next 2 weeks, since my grampa who i'm staying with has a computer, but its a 233MHz P2... i'm gonna do some surgery on it and put a combo dvd player / cd burner and 40gb hd i got with me into it so i can at least use the broadband internet he's got (came free with his cable tv subscription if i remember it right)... i did prepare a bunch of my older deviations for prints tho while i was on the 9 hour ferry from Ios, to Athens, so those i'll be submitting within a few days or so...

anyway, i'm gonna stop geeking out there... its gonna be nice to get back to sweden again for a bit... last time was in may last year for 2 weeks, and before that was in june 2000 for 2 weeks aswell... before that it was in 1996 when we moved to greece... lol... gonna be nice to see some change... lol

cya, i'm out, off, or whatever you'd like to call it, doesn't matter to me, either way, i'm done with this journal entry... lol :P
  • Listening to: nothing, to lazy to get my ipod up...
well, some slightly bad news here for anyone that likes my photos here and waiting for new ones... the past weeks soon its been a tad much stuff to do, so i havn't managed get as much photos together and submitted as i would like, and i'm afraid its gonna look that for another few days, got a lot of i have to sort out :P... basically, a lot of computers that needs fixing and such on the island...

but i should be able to get a few things together on sunday, and submit, and hopefully get more a few more prints submitted of previous deviations... as of yet, no ones baught any prints tho, oh well... lol... hopefully it'll happen soon... at least i can get prints for myself from DA here... hehe... and specially since my latest deviation (Stripes of Above) turned out quite a cool panorama, and is friggin 71cm wide (which my own hp photo printer only can dream of printing on... lol), my print account will come to some use anyway even if i'd endup with never selling a single print... lol

anyway, i'm planing on shooting a few more panorama prints, as i like how Stripes of Above turned out... hehe... altho, if it wasn't for a program called AutoStitch i found the other day or mere accient (i'd give a link, if i could remember where i found it... lol), it got a lot easier to create the panorama from the 6 shots i had, which were taken to create a panorama, i was just being lazy, and it was going slowly to fit them all together properly... but AutoStitch sorted me out :D... lol

gonna try to get a few more deviations up, and make some more of the previous ones available as prints over the next few days, i ain't promising anything tho, cause at this point i ain't 100% sure if can promise myself sleep at night even... expect for tonight!! lol... cause its soon 4am, and i'm tired as shit, need sleep!! say 4-5 hours just, and i'll be semi-rested enough to stand up again and get more geek computer fixing work done :P... not to mention all the shit i need to get done with designs n shit in the next few days (hate it when to much stuff comes together at the same time, oh well... lol :P)

well, i'm calling this it for now, i'm throwing in the towel, yes oh dear god damn sleep and tiredness I GIVE UP! YOU WIN!! imma sleep now! HAPPY?!... lol :PPP... anyway, i need sleep now (obviously!)... and damn, this is the longest journal entry i've ever written i belive... lol... oh well, congrats if you actually got this far in reading here without leaving n doing something else caure of boredom... lol

cya
  • Listening to: Lostprophets - Last Train Home
well, i've just gotten myself a print account, or signed up for the print service, or however you like to say it... lol... some friends thought i should (probably cause they wanna buy like one print of my stuff just ;)... lol)...

eitherway, cause of the crappy 1.8 megapixel camera i have, prints wont be available in any bigger sizes than 4x6", till i get a better camera... lol... if anyone's interested in that info, considering they'd have to be interested in buying a print to be interesting in that... lol :P

i'd like to thank everyone that's commented on my work and such lately :hug: :)... sorry if i didn't respond to every comment...

and thank you Nicky (MissTfied) for registering on deviantart here cause you wanted to comment on my photos, and then went on to comment on every single one of them... lmao... :hug::hug: :)

well, i think i'll be heading off to sleep for now... and hopefully the pending prints will be aproved tomorrow, wiiee... at least i'm having fun even i don't actually sell anything... lol
  • Listening to: Creed - Who's Got My Back? on his new iPod Shuffle
i got back 2am last night with the ferry from athens... was a hell of a trip... lol... i got all my shit done and sorted out tho... plus some other stuff that wasn't planed (like walking around in IKEA for 3 hours and buying shit for 36 euro by the end of it.. lol)

i did get my 1GB iPod Shuffle tho... hehehehehe... love the damn thing... eventually gonna get an iPod Photo, when i get rich or something... but the Shuffle is damn awesome, for the price, for the sound quality, and the fucking size and weight, its like 0.78 oz, or about 23g... i hardly even feel it hanging around my neck... fits about 200 songs, battery should last about 12 hours of continues playback, but i think i'm getting more then that outta it :D... all in all, turned out great, paid a bit more then i would for a 1GB usb memory so i can move files between machines i fix and whatever, and i got a usb memory that plays music aswell, not to mention, its another one of my beloved Apple products :D... lol :P

anyway, thats enough of the boring geek-shit... anyone who likes the photos i have in my gallery, will probably be glad to know i brought the digicam on the trip, and i took about 300 pics left and right while bored and walking around athens... i'll be submitting some of the better ones over the next few days...

well, i'm gonna get back to becoming human again after being on my feet for nearly 2 days... play around with my ipod, and some other general shit and geek-shit things i need to do... lol :P...

cya
so, i'm going to athens here this evening... in fact, the ferry is leaving in an hour, and shit, i'm not ready... lol

basically just gonna do some shopping, pickup my new passport, and woooo, imma have an iPod Shuffle tomorrow (if the store actually held one for me after i talked to them... lol)...

anyway, no more time to waste, time to pack my laptop and shit up, and the camera, wanna take some photos of something different then the island... lol

well, i'm off, or i'm gonna miss the damn ferry... :P... cya!
i've been quite busy the past few days, so i havn't had time to submit any new deviations... so i finally put some together and uploaded tonight here, i have a few more i'm gonna submit tomorrow, basically cause its 5am, and i'm shit tired and wanna get some sleep!! lol...

thanks to everyone thats commented on my work :)... i'm sorry if i havn't replied to every comment, but i've generally tried to check everyone's galleries and leave a thank you somewhere... if i missed someone, i'm sorry... i wish i could be a complete DA addict (trust me ;) lol), but thats not exactly what life has planed... oh well... nothing goes as planed in life ;)...

cya
...yeah, was quite a while ago i first joined deviantart, only recently i've come around to using it for something... lol

so, some boring ass info about me, might, or might not be in order, but i might aswell spell it out anyway (even tho my spelling does suck :P)...

i recently turned 19 (wooo-fukin-hoooo....not.. lol), i live in greece, yepp... since the end of 1996, i'm originally from -45C northern sweden, and chance of you finding a pic of me here, so far extremely small... i might submit something one day which does include myself, but chances are probably not big since i hate being infront of a camera (my place is behind it messing with all the buttons and other technical shit... lol)...

as for my recent return or rather, coming around and actually using deviantart, i think its mainly cause of the photos i've been submitting... see, a few weeks back or so, i started taking my parents -- crappy, but still quite good -- digital camera with me outside a few times while bored, taking pics of whatever... i later realized they weren't all crap, and ppl i know said they were good... so i figured i'd start putting a bunch up here, get some use outta my account for once... lol

i'd like to thank everybody thats commented on my work, and favored it or whatever you say and so on... lol... i'm quite busy tho generally, so sorry if i don't get around to reply and thank everybody directly, cause god knows i would be a "DA Addict" if i didn't have a ton of other stuff to do all the time... lol

and incase you're wondering, i've still got more photos to submit here, and i'm sure i'll be taking more... lol... i've been submitting about 2-3 photos a day the past few days, and i plan on trying to keep it that way for as long as i can, still keeping it to quite good photos... and i hope i never drop down to under a photo a day... lol

anyway, i'm about to head down to the port again, more computer problems down there that needs fixing... i think i'll take the camera with me, like last time when i got the sunset shots, and some others...
well, its about 5:24pm, and i'm gonna take off... i'll submit some more photos this evening...

cya ;)
