hey hey everyone! I'm back from my lil unofficial hiatus! My poor drawing tablet broke AGAIN so I had to send him to the tablet hospital AGAIN, but now he's back and so am I!
Just finished my first week back at school (we start really late!) and my first week has been full of excitement!! I moved into my new apartment with my two lovely roommates (but I miss my roomie from last year, the lovely
! But she's over in Taiwan right now having adventures and being amazing as always!) I joined my school's Glee club with several good friends of mine, singing a solo as an initiation into the club. I've never done that before, but it was actually pretty exciting! I didn't feel terribly nervous but then my legs started shaking! no worries! I powered through it and now I'm working on "Pompeii" by Bastille, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and "Sing" by Ed Sheeran. I'm so excited! I'm stepping out of my comfort zone, making new friends, and getting the performing opportunity I've been missing since I graduated high school!
I also began my Japanese class this quarter and I'm looooooving it!
It's been a long time since I was this excited about a class. I'm just so eager to learn all that I can, getting daydreams of going to Japan some day and teaching. Funny, I'm picking up this language a lot faster than I did Spanish. I feel like I've learned almost as much Japanese in one week as I did in 4 years of Spanish in high school. Maybe the teaching is just better here. Maybe Japanese is more my style. Maybe my enthusiasm is helping out. Maybe all three! All I know is I'm having fun learning again! What a great feeling!
And of course, I'm arting again! I have a few projects in the works right now, posting a few traditional sketches from over the Summer in the meantime. A lot of stuff from the anime I've been watching (FREE! OMG THE ENDING MELTED MY HEART!! AND THEN TOKYO GHOUL CAME ALONG AND SMASHED THAT HEART TO PIECES! XO) and I'm also working on finally designing my own characters. Hoping to fit in a few Halloween themed pieces as well in honor of my favorite month!
so that's about it for my updates! Sorry I was away for a while but I'll hopefully be posting more now that my beloved tablet is back and I'm surrounded by fellow artists and creative minds back at school!
