Being busy and blogging does not go well together. I will say, though, that the reason that I’ve been busy is great.
Hanging out with friends is always a good reason why to be busy.
Hi! It’s been awhile. I don’t dare to look at the date of my last post because I know that I’ll end up going into a long ranty apology that all of you must be tired of by now. I think I’ve been apologizing every post ever since I put my schedule up.
One of the main things I want to address this time is:
I’ve been running out of ideas.
It’s not so much my busy schedule that’s keeping me from posting, but rather, a lack of ideas. I’ve been blogging for a little over a year and a half now.
My ideas for blog posts either pour down on me like like a waterfall and I get swept away in the tidal wave, or they come dripping out of a squeaky spigot in the middle of a desert.
And there’s no in between.
So I’ve pretty much resorted to blog about whatever catches my interest at the time. And because I was naive and on the high from last November, I decided to join Camp NaNoWriMo. That means that whatever time that I do have to write, I’m most likely putting it towards my word count. This poor web page is probably infested with spiders that decided to move in due to the lack of use here.
I will say though that I’ve noticed that I’m very inactive on my blog during the summer over here in the US of A. I’m attracted to the sun like a moth is to a flame- I love sunny weather and being active outside. Hopefully that with my pretty recent laptop, I’ll be able to sit outside more as I’m pounding out a new post. But don’t hold your breath. I don’t wanna be sued because you died from lack of oxygen.
This particular post is just going to be relaxed. I have no brain cells left to make an in depth post.

These pictures here is a before and after. The one on the left is from 2012, and the one on the right is from the Fall of 2017. I’m so pleased with how Lamess turned out! She’s my original character from my childhood days when I was obsessed with the cartoon Teen Titans. I literally tried to draw EVERYTHING in that art style- I kinda consider it the beginning of my art career.
I did this little beauty with MS paint and a mouse since I have no art tablet about a month and a half-ish ago. Ever since I created Miguel last October, I’ve been kinda drawing him all over the place. He’s just kinda my go-to character that I want to draw all the time.
For those of you who didn’t see those posts, Miguel is my original character that I made in preparation for NaNoWriMo 2017. I ended up not going with that comic project and decided to write a story together with my friend. See Graphictober: Ingenious- Graphic Novel Development and The Benefits Of Co-Writing. If you want to see a short story with him in it, check out Until I Wake.
Maybe I should make him the mascot of my blog…
What are your thoughts on this idea?
I’ve also been doing the Monthly Gemsona art challenge thing recently. It’s where you take a birthstone from a month, and you personify it into a human. I won’t be making regular posts on that challenge. I’ll be waiting until the end of the year to make one huge post about it (please keep me accountable on this!). But if you’re super duper curious and you don’t want to wait, I have a DeviantArt account now! I’ll be updating that challenge regularly whenever I finish a piece.
With music, I’ve been trying to learn piano and keyboard. I go to a free music workshop now, and in theory, I can basically play any song I want. Now It’s just a matter of practicing the songs I want to play.

Also have been really addicted to this one Indie song lately. I can’t stop playing this at all. For those of you who don’t use YouTube, the name of the song is Bayou by Mountains of the Moon. This has been my ultimate chill out song that I have been abusing the replay button with.
That’s about it for now! I hope you had a happy Resurrection Sunday, and hopefully you’ll hear again from me pretty soon. ♥
Remember by Twitter friend from this post? She drew Lamess as a thank you, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. ❤
Thanks for reading to the end of this post!
