The vacation was awesome! Thank you everyone that wished me well on this trip and for your prayers. We spent a lot of time driving, it was about 10 hours there and 11 hours back. CA is in horrible shape right now with lots of lakes and rivers being dried up. We managed to swim one of the days we were there but the water was very low compared to where it's normally at. It was in the 90's most days and while we wanted to go back out on the river a few times, there were several thunder storms and storm warnings so we aired on the side of caution and instead enjoyed the city and eachother's company. We visited a ghost town, saw some old friends of my mom, and spent a lot of time bonding at the campsite over movies and life stories. We did get eaten alive by mosquitoes as well but nothing could dampen the time we spent.
Sadly, we aren't sure if we can have our vacation next year. My DLF will be graduating and may land a job that makes it impossible to do so. It's depressing, but it makes me appreciate the time I do get to spend with her all the more precious.Birthday! ♦♦♦
I want to thank everyone that tossed out birthday wishes for me! I really didn't do much, I'm not a party sort. My mom went out and got me a Galaxy Note 12.1 so I could do art on the go. I've already uploaded some of my doodles off of that program. I'm using the sketchbook app but if anyone out there knows of something better/different I'd love suggestions! The Adobe touch -sucks-. I'm just glad that the store lets you refund purchases if you aren't completely happy with them. I'd like something similar to photoshop or manga studio but I'm having a hard time finding anything. Work and Life ♦♦♦
I'm still pulling two jobs so my time is pretty short online. I don't spend a lot of time arting because my first job really does a number on my wrist and this past month has been absolutely horrible. My wrist is tight, my fingers are tingling, and my grip is weak. I do art here and there but big, completed projects will take me longer and longer. I'm sorry about that! I'm doing plenty of daily doodles to keep loose and I do the occasional poke'mon ask (but I feel horrible because my quality has slipped due to this whole thing ><). I've been told that I will be getting more hours at Copper Creek soon and when that happens I will be quitting Big Town Hero to spare my hands the little chores there that do my nerves damage. My schedule will be a little odd as I'll not have any consecutive days off, but we're closed on Sundays and it's likely I'll shoot for having Wednesdays off so I can have a midway rest day through my week. It's kind of random, but I do love the job at Copper Creek and everyone I work with. I make a little more an hour and the work isn't as hard on my body. It goes by quicker and I find myself smiling on my way home. I am having foot problems again from being on my feet a lot longer than normal but what can anyone do?
So that's my little update. :3 Sorry I've not pumped out anything impressive. ;;Doing art...Adoptables?
You can purchase adoptables done by me on this alternate account. My rules and guidelines still apply and the content is very random. Just because...
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
"The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us."
"If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world."
"We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."
"What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it."
C.S. LewisCommissions & Trades I'm waiting on:
Some of these are pretty recent but there are a few that are slowly gathering dust. I'm leaving them up as a reminder to myself (and hopefully the other artists involved).
At this point...these sit here as "Buyer Bewares":

and myself decided it's about time we start up a group for ParaChiMar: The Legacy of Para. For those interested this group is pretty much just a good place to dump all of our LoP artwork, trades, commissions, and fanart into. I've also made a small stamp collection to celebrate. Check us out. :3My buddies & Artistic Icons: ClubsReligion & Politics: "Fandoms"
