Hi everyone! This will be like my journal, I'll be posting any manga/anime I'm currently into, video games I'm playing, or random tidbits of my life. Hope you enjoy reading!

New Project WIP

I was trying to go for a more painted look with this, but it's not something I'm really experienced with and the more I work with it, the worse it seems to get, so I might consider scrapping it altogether...

HEY GUESS WHAT I'M NOT BLIND ANYMORE

My surgery went about as well as it could possibly go, and I DON'T EVEN NEED GLASSES ANYMORE OH MY GOD. It is a really weird feeling, but I've been recovering and getting used to the feeling. Everything is really clear and defined, which it has never been before in my life. I've even managed to draw a few things over the last couple of weeks, which I will upload later. I'm just so happy to be able to see again, you guys have no idea...

Very Important Announcement

If you actually read this, thank you for taking the time to look, as this is tremendously important:

Since I had surgery several weeks ago to remove my gallbladder, I have had enough medical complications for the next four lifetimes. I'm not kidding, I've practically lived at the hospital this past month. Basically, I was mistakenly given a medication that really messed with my eyes, and I now have about maybe 20% of my vision in one eye, the other eye is totally blind. I'm going in for surgery tomorrow in an attempt to get my sight back, but they are really not sure how successful it will be. Worst-case scenario, I lose what little vision I have left. I've tried very hard for a really long time to tough it out and not worry my friends and family, but truth be told I've been completely worn down emotionally and I am absolutely terrified and I have been having anxiety attacks all day today. My doctors say there's a good chance of me regaining most of my vision if the surgery is successful, but I'm still scared. You don't realize how much you rely on one of your senses until it's lost or at least diminished. I'm actually not even physically typing this as I can't see the keyboard, it's going through a speech-to-type software I've needed since this whole thing started.

I honestly don't know if I'll regain my sight or go totally blind at this point, but in the event that I do go blind, I just wanted to thank all of you for supporting and caring about my art these past six years. Thank you all.

Ouchies...

Had to get emergency surgery to get my gallbladder taken out yesterday and I feel like I got hit by a truck....

Wow, I have not updated in forever....

Attempting to sew my own cosplay, trying to branch out in the graphic design field, attending classes, and dealing with my social anxiety issues makes a girl very, very busy! Also I've just been far more active on Tumblr lately, so there's that too...
