Well, it looks like yesterday was my blog’s 2nd anniversary (yay). I remember when I first started and only got around 3 views a day from one or two visitors, I never thought that this blog would grow this big or last this long. To everyone reading this, thank you for your support.
Now on to other stuff. I’ve pretty much been absent from the blogging world for the past week due to several reasons:
I was learning how to draw anime bodies. I can draw faces decently, but I never got beyond that until now. I did manage to do a rough sketch of my prototype mascot below. The parts I had most trouble with were the elbows and knees. I still need to fix up her right arm since it looks a bit small. I think I’m going to stick with the clothes I picked for her, but I haven’t decided on what kind of footwear she should have.
I was trying to plan my future. It’s my 23rd birthday today and as I get older I’m starting to worry about what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. I don’t know whether I should get a Masters degree or start working. If I get a Masters degree, I’ll need to decide which field of research I want to go into, and if I get a job, I need to decide what kind of job. I’ve also been thinking of when I should move out and when I do, whether I should stay in the same city, province, or country.
This weekend was Animethon, so I spent yesterday and today there. It seems like the admission price has increased once again, which is really annoying since everything still feels the same. Some of the merchandise being sold in the vendors area was fake (ie: nendoroids, artbooks) so I just stuck to buying manga like I had originally planned.
I think the stress from Reason 2 combined with lack of sleep is making me sick.
So if I haven’t visited your blog recently, now you know why. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back into things soon.
