Hello all my brothers and sisters!! I wanted to start off this journal post by wishing all my lovely friends/correspondents a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!
Ugh, these past few months have been just crazy! Compared to previous semesters at school, this past one was just so demanding that whenever I had some free time, it was so hard to be motivated to log on to DA and respond to new messages, make new posts, etc. I know in recent years, I've been a lot less active than I used to be (which I find kinda ironic in regards to new deviations and stuff, as I have more of a reason to be active because I actually have higher quality deviations to post). I'm sure you all can understand that I've been stuck in college working for my degree for over four years now, and I'm just one semester shy of graduating and getting done with school. Unfortunately, my personal life has been extremely demanding lately (I'm struggling to ensure that I do graduate next spring, and I'm already looking for a post-college career), and my studies have little to no relevance with my actual hobbies. So for that reason, I've been very limited to DA access as of late. :/
But with that said, I've been on my winter break for about a week now, so I have a bit of time to get caught up on all the nice new updates I've missed out on, and hopefully post a few things myself!
My break feels pretty short this year, so hopefully I can get as much stuff done as possible. Now in regards to holidays, I completely missed out on wishing all my American friends and watchers a happy Thanksgiving. Mine was really nice; I traveled out to the state of South Dakota where I was born and visited my grandmother and other relatives.
It was a very relaxing Thanksgiving break with a nice big turkey dinner and all, but it sure came by fast! I guess since Thanksgiving was so late this year, it made it seem like Christmas came really fast too! >.< Usually I'm on top of preparing for Christmas every year, but with how busy my life in school has been, along with how fast the year went by, I just lost track of time. I actually finished up my final exams as well as my semester just last week, and it was only right after that I had some time to start preparing for Christmas. -_- So needless to say, I wasn't able to come home in time to help my mother and sister finish our decorating, and I wasn't able to get all my shopping done for all my lovely friends/family! xD On top of that, my flight back home for the holidays was a real pain in the ass last week! I actually missed my first flight in the morning, and that just messed up my schedule for the entire day! *_* But regardless, I managed to make it home safely with all my things in tact, and I've been having a fun and relaxing Christmas!
So in regards to deviation posts, I still want to submit some some cosplay pics from Halloween, and now that I have some leisure time, I'm expecting to get some various drawing projects done and out of the way. Oh, and my lovely and patient friend
still needs my help with the commission we're working on, hehe.
Anyway, I think that's about all the updates I really have, I appreciate anyone who took the time to read all this long-winded text! Before I wrap things up, I gotta know, what did everyone do for the holidays? I always love asking these questions!
So stay safe, guys!
I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Christmas, and I hope you all enjoy the New Year celebrations!
Take care guys, love you all!
