It's Finally Happened.

I wake up and look out my window because I wanted to see if it was still raining (since it was raining when I went to bed.) Instead I'm greeted with this....

Snow....darn freakin' Utah weather. >_< I was only wearing hoodies yesterday, and now I'm wearing coats and beanies.

College has started...

Might as well tell you why I've suddenly disappeared of the face of the internet. Yes, college has started and I've just finished my first week. To be truthful though I was up here a week before doing college marching band. So my life has been pretty full, and on top of school they scheduled me 24 hours of work for this past week, so there really wasn't much time to do anything. But, work and school will start slowing down pretty soon and I hope to be able to draw a bit more even if it turns out to be just doodles. Who knows, but yes, that's what's been going on with me lately. Just thought I should let you guys know!



So, my cousin thinks one of my coworkers likes/is interested me. Considering that I'm one of the few people HE (since he's shy) goes up to talk to with me talking to him first, I think she might be right. So she's saying that I should make a move and give him a hint that I wouldn't mind going on a date or two. He's a really nice guy AND is going into a stable major at school, which is good because I'd really like to marry a guy who's able to get a steady and stable job (plus he's not too bad looking and plays an instrument!(Since I'm studying Music Education that's a bonus)) But, his last day at work before he quits is Wednesday so I really wouldn't have much time...do you think I should go for it?


P.S. This is the first time I've actually ever considered giving hints to a guy...hence why I've never had a boyfried... =_="

Tumblr Account

Well, despite all my indecisiveness I decided to get an account. It'sThis link Follow me if you wish! I'll be posting most everything I draw, so a lot of sketches and other random crap. It is my art blog after all.

With the questions I plan on answering them with a picture. So ask me questions!


P.S. It's really plain right now. I'm still working on a background picture and a new avatar pic. So don't judge too harshly, okay?
