I guess this is the part where I explain my absence, huh?
It's been a wreck where I am. Namely Mom is at the worst of her hypo-manic stage again (and anyone who knows me understands that I do not
use that word lightly) and it's been draining the hell out of me and given me lots of unhinged stress. I may have to move into Dad's office for real this time, but as long as Mom leaves me alone and never talks to me, I can gain some peace of mind. There's also been confusion involving my birth control meds, but I saw my gynocologist for that, so no worries.
Good things that kept me sane included Jimmy's 22nd birthday back on May 17th! Dad even got him a small present~ (We got him several WW2 books, including a memoir of the last Valkyrie) Jimmy and his mom and I ate at a glorious Italian restaurant, and its cheese pizza is absolutely amazing. The food was rich so we got stuffed right away and had to ask for leftover boxes. Then Jimmy and I cuddled at his house and we played Mario Party 3 in his honor before I went home.
Another thing I got to look forward to was art commissions. If Mom gets to go on her giant online shopping sprees, why can't I get myself something nice for a change? Both of them involve characters from my novel... and dear lord, I miss my novel and I want to start working on it again.jazaaboo
is an animator who uses her skills for a charites such as the speedgamers.
You know that Pokemon video
that I showed you several entries back? Yep, she made that. Unfortunately, she recently had to go to the hospital for emergency surgery, and a single night's stay costs $7000.
That's American Health Care for ya. :/
Forwarding and spreading the word is fine and all, but I dunno. I felt like I had to do something.
And $15 for a single colored sketch is easy. So I asked her to draw one of my main supporting characters: "Jelly Jane."( Introducing Jelly Jane! )( And the drawing itself. :o )
You can commission Jaz here.
Her kindness is as great as her art and she deserves all the donations she can get. ;; You can even request a custom animation cell! :oThis post has been crossposted with Dreamwidth at http://shamanicshaymin.dreamwidth.org/24022.html. Pick your poison. Mwoiiiiiiiing~!
