Yesterday I took my sister/bestie to her first year at college and moving her in was...weird. She has a gorgeous room, and such a nice roommate, and sweet RAs and as I watched everything being exactly the opposite for her as it had been for me, I began to feel excited about school.
I don't know how I feel about that yet, but I'll let you know when I figure it out.
With many setbacks, I've been, overall, on a "feeling better" trend. I've been thinking a lot about last year when I opened up for commissions. Anyone involved knows that I failed with epic failure. But I've been wanting to, more and more, follow up on them, get in touch with my poor abandoned patrons and such, and for a few days in the last week or so, my desire to do right by them outweighed my self pity and procrastination, and I did a few sketches. It's a small step, but it's in the right direction. Anyway I'm doing a few smaller projects to see if I'm ready to not let people down in a second round, starting with my 33,333 kiriban. LOL it's not actually THAT far behind, I've gotten 3/5 of my total pageviews this summer, and she caught it in the late spring so I'm not THAT heinous of a human...for that
at least. That's actually more than half done, and then I'm doing a trade, and if I manage that in a timely fashion, I'll begin contacting people...
I'm actually quite excited about it. I hope I don't bitch out again.
in other newsI GOT MY FIRST DAILY DEVIATION!!!!!
Not a huge deal these days, given the quality of most of the crap they feature, but I like to fantasize that my piece actually deserved it haha. Unfortunately as it so often happens, over the last weeks I've been wanting to rework it more and more, particularly the values, but I've decided to, at this point, just let it go and focus my efforts on new stuffs instead. If it's good enough for a daily deviation, it should be good enough for me.
p.s. HAVE A(n anatomically challenged) DANCER.
