Hey everyone. Let me slink in ashamedly for just a few moments to give you an update on my current situation.
I've been stymied for a few months in an absurd depression, mainly because I'm an idiot and didn't manage my schedule properly so I got stuck doing school projects last minute and never had time for anything else other than passing out and sleeping. A lot of things have happened--I've changed my major in college from Creative Writing to Chinese, with hopefully a minor in art. A lot of stuff went into the decision, and what came out of it were depressing realizations about reality and that shit's ramping up and I have to get myself together or I'll never succeed and do the things I want to with my life.
Not entirely bad, just sucks the wind out of me.
On the writing and art front, collectively, I've had such a hard time doing anything even when I had time for a plethora of reasons that would bore even me to death. But the idea is that, now that the semester is ending and I'm not falling-over-myself tired anymore, I'll manage to stop dragging my feet a little.
I will be posting very soon. I've finished several daunting paintings, and am trying desperately to finish more. And once I finish the stuff I need to, I'll start sketching and posting on both DA and my tumblr, which you can find here: jessenosabaku.tumblr.com/
I post random stuff there all the time as well, and reblog cool arts or mangacaps if I find them, so expect a myriad of things.
I've obliterated a lot of my notifications because I'd been away so long that I had over 6,000, so if I've missed a bunch of your stuff, I'm sorry. I kept some notifications such as orribu's and UltraLiThematic and some others so in the next couple days I should be all caught up. However, all the journals are gone, I just couldn't bring myself to read through all of them.
I also still want to commission people! I'm just drop-dead broke right now. I blew my scant extra cash on two things:
Please, if you're into One Piece and you don't know about these cards, buy some! Currently, there are only 50 decks left, and it's not certain if the decks will be restocked. I order from Deer-Head all the time and they're a hundred percent reliable in payment processing and getting the product to you. And as you can see, their drawing are always top-notch. Please support Deer-Head with commissions as well, should you come into some pocket money sometime. They give really cheap commissions.
The other thing I blew money on was these:
Some stickers by maarchen on tumblr! UGH THEY'RE SO CUTE. Maarchen made a bunch more too, like Sanji and Robin and Zoro. They're still in stock, so go show some love, yeah? They're only like $1.90. You can purchase them here:
Thanks to all of my friends who have been supporting me in and out of this several month period. Orribu, Li, I'm lookin' at you! You guys never forgot about me, and it means a lot. Please continue to take care of me.
