What A Surprise

I picked up a pencil for the first time in a while, and actually accomplished something, rather than infuriate myself with tiny details. I will be uploading a drawing– a self-portrait, actually– to dA, and will post a link to it here whenever it is there.
I will be posting multiple variants of it, because I am intending to do what is called the Expressions Meme, where I draw my character with different expressions. This is meant to be an exercise, and it will definitely be trying for me… Might take a while… I’m trying to draw my character at all angles, first, so that way I have the dimensions down (especially the hair).
Will update later!


(Insert Something Interesting Here)

I have some news, kind of. I was invited to join a group on dA (a metal group ^_^), which is awesome. I don’t know how they came across me, really, but it makes me feel glad that they did. I haven’t posted anything on there in a looong time, other than bios of characters from The Door. With how busy I’ve been lately, I haven’t had the chance to do any artistic things. I haven’t even been able to sing like I used to.

I just realized something. Earlier, when I was asleep, Vlad called me and woke me up and asked me if I had to work Wednesday. I said I wouldn’t know until probably tomorrow. He said to tell him as soon as possible… I just woke up in my mind, just now, typing… and Wednesday is my birthday. Is he planning something?!

Yeah, it takes me a while to wake up, I guess. I have been up for about an hour now… I still need to run to my mom’s house and spend some time with her before I go to that work-meeting. It will be the first time in quite a while that I attend a work-meeting. I’m a bit excited, which I suppose is a bit funny. However, to those of you who don’t understand what a joy it is to have a job, no matter how “lowly” it may seem, the simple fact is that it is a privilege to work. Especially here of late. Sometime next month, the company that my cousin works at will suddenly shut down. The employees don’t even know when their last day will be. I understand how terrifying it is to be without a job, and I know that time goes on, even when we need it to slow down for us.

I guess I’ve been jumping all over the place in this post, but I am truly at a strange place right now. I keep dreaming about that manga, and I think about it right before I go to sleep, and right when I wake up. Do you understand just how weird that is for me? Rarely do even my OWN stories get me this worked up. It’s terrifyingly amazing.

However, in my last post, I said that it was causing me heart pains. That was most likely a coincidence. I called my doctor and he told me that it was probably too much caffeine. Which I guess could be plausible. I drink nothing but water, since it’s the only thing I have in the house. I get to work and immediately drown myself in caffeinated drinks. Usually it doesn’t bother me, seriously, but if that is what it is, it won’t happen anymore. However, if it persists, I guess we could call those instances panic attacks?

Anyway, sorry if I didn’t make sense much throughout this post. After all, I just woke up, and I will probably forget entirely that I wrote this in about thirty minutes. So…

When did I write this?

For Those Who Like To Read

I just got all of the pieces of Academy published to my deviantArt account. This is what you might have missed when I had My Only Unreality on tumblr. However, I’m actually happier with it being on deviantArt. And also, keep an eye out for more drawings. I’ve been feeling inspired lately.

Last Words

I’m exhausted. And hungry.

Screw it, I’ll eat tomorrow.

I’m off, so I can work on stuff that I had put off (like the next Inspiring Song of the Week, or the photos I’m supposed to edit, or the clothes I need to sew, or the drawings I need to start/finish, or the books and stories I need to work on…

Speaking of books and stories, by the way, I added profiles for the characters of The Door to my dA account. If you are interested in The Door (which at one point I intended to serialize on this site), check in my gallery. On the left side of the gallery page, there are folders. The one that says The Door Hazy Eyed contains the drawings of Galtiere and the bios I have written. Other concept art will be added eventually, I just have to make time for that later.

Blogging Budies Unite!

A friend of mine since the “good”-ole-days took note of my tumblr-related anger, as he was thinking of setting up his own tumblr site– I told him that the people I’ve met over wordpress have been nice, encouraging, and more responsive than tumblr– or, you know, maybe I wasn’t doing something right? Oh well.

The reason I share this is because I would like to support his future blogs– he’s always supported me, and I frequently say that if I could add someone to my family, he would be my adopted brother (lol). So, expect me to give shout-outs to him frequently, and I might even put links to him in the future. He’s a sweet guy, really, and I know that at least some of you will think so too!
