First off thanks to all the recent followers! I really appreciate it, even though I must say I do update very sporadically haha, though I've been getting better! It's almost finals week so I've been kind of busy with schoolwork but at the same time I've just been getting too many comic/drawing ideas so I can't say I've had the best concentration ever, haha! I'm really happy about the all the responses on Il Monumento, I really love that we can be able to have such an interesting discussion!

As for life, I've realized that I have managed to mess up my sleep schedule even without the influence of caffeine, since I take long naps in the afternoon (when I can) but am really active and awake at 2:00 am... which is probably good if you live on the opposite side of the Pacific West (whatever it's called) time zone and want to send me a message!! School is pretty great, although I really feel like I haven't been getting as involved in events and stuff as much as I wanted to at the beginning of the quarter, and to be honest I also feel pretty lazy as well, even though technically I've been getting things done pretty okay. I think watching Baccano! earlier in the last couple months really threw me off quite a bit, but that might just be some misplaced blame... anyways :0 College sure is interesting! 

The Art department here at UCLA is pretty nice and I've been doing a lot of painting, which I haven't really been posting here but have lots of examples of on my Tumblr, but it isn't really focused on the stuff I'm interested in...which means I guess I need to make time to practice and keep up my more illustrative/fundamental skills. I have a ton of ideas zipping around in my head, even if they are mostly fan projects, like my Hetalia comics. (SO MANY ideas, so little time....) I don't have a lot of good starting ""original"" ideas really, even the ""original"' comic I want to work on the most is actually just a retelling of some mythology so idk if that even counts. But we must all do our best, I guess :) 
  • Mood: Tired

Hi there, I just came to thank you for Baccano anime recommendation... Well you recommended it to Shabby-girl, but she send me the title before even watching herself so i guess it's all thanks to you :D Anyway, it was great, I've watched it nearly in one-go.
