2006 already, huh?
Well, getting initial comments out of the way: It's now 2006, has been for about two weeks, and I'm back in school. Being that it's a new year, I've given long and serious thought to my resolutions, and so here they are for the world to see.
I have been terrible about many things. I have been deficient on carrying out favors and promises to my friends. I haven't spent enough time with my friends, neglecting some of my closest ones for the sake of others. I haven't worked on commissions enough. I haven't spent enough time focusing on my schooling. I have had trouble focusing on work. I also haven't been sleeping enough. So, thus follows my new year's resolution:
I resolve that this year I shall focus all my mental energy into warping the fabric of space-time, so as to lengthen the course of a day to give myself more time to work with.
Barring that, I'm going to try and be better about finishing commissions and trades.
It's another year, and another semester at school. I'm still working part-time while schooling, but I have fewer hours then last year. Unfortunately, four of those hours are Japanese II, and I've got some bad catch-up to do, so while I expect this semester to be lighter then last overall, the first few weeks are going to be rough. Even so, I'm optimistic that I should be able to secure a -bit- more productive time this semester. Also, I intend to draw more regularly.
Drawing is, as some would be quick to point out, rather like a muscle. It atrophies if you don't use it. Last semester, I was completely bogged down in my studies, and couldn't keep up with my art. That made it harder to draw when I did have time, and all in all just bogged me down. I overbooked myself on commissions because I needed cash, and the subsequent backlog paralyzed me.
Over the break, I've been working on getting two things accomplished. Getting a viable workspace (cleaning my room some) and getting my drawing legs back. I feel I've accomplished the latter to some degree, and the former...(looks around) Well, I'm working on it. But I -am- drawing again.
And, to some extent, writing, as well. The past semester of college had me in a philosophy and an English course, so essays were the order of the day. So hopefully I can continue that momentum here in my blog. Barring anything else, I might post some essays here and there when things are slow. ;p
So, in truth, my new years resolution is this: Draw more, and update my site more often. Which, in all honesty, shouldn't be hard. Â¬_Â¬
As far as said updates go, keep an eye on the Original and Original Hentai sections, as well as some updates and corrections to the profile and links pages within the next day or so.
Finally, if I owe you a commission and have not contacted you lately, e-mail me. I'm pretty sure I've got everybody in my queue accounted for, but the holidays were crazy and I'm not what a person might consider "well organized" of late. Reminders are good.
Here's hoping 2006 is a good year!
(Random aside. It amuses me -tremendously- that blogger.com's spellchecker does not recognize the term "blog".)
