I Am Sensei

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 7:58 AM
Featured Works of Various Artists:


Been a long road to follow, been there and gone tomorrow, without saying goodbye to

yesterday... Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded them? Maybe

this time tomorrow, the rain will cease to follow and the mist will fade into one more today...

I know I've become more-than-scarce over the last few years, but I was having a great deal of fun being a teacher in Japan. Never being one to do things only half-way, I devoted myself to the task as much as possible, working stereotypical Japanese hours and filling the occasional gaps with martial arts practice and nomunication. Those were, to say the least, a fricken awesome five years. Even if my art didn't progress at all, I am now essentially fluent in Japanese and stronger than I ever was.

And I have a cat.

But now I am moving on from that path in my life and looking forward to other things. I hope to have more time for drawing, writing, reading, working in the yard and playing games. Not that I'm anything near a gamer, but I do like some and having time to actually play them without 4-month intervals between saving would be nice. For the time being, I will have a part-time job with no necessary preparation, so in essence I will only be working 1/3 the hours I was in japan.

I will miss my students and co-workers like the plague, and learning to live in the states again will be challenging, but there was nothing like that experience and it has shaped me into a better person with a wider understanding of societies and culture.

Current Projects:

:bulletblue: Zodiac (stalemated due to lack of inspiration)

Hi! So I'm posting from an inactive co-run account, but my personal dA is currently OminaterTheGreat. Personally I think that's a mouthfull, and I've been wanting to change my artist alias to AoRingo for a few months now. Would you be alright with that? So long as our art is definitely distinguishable and the R is capitalized? I figured I'd check if anyone else had that name and I'd be super happy if you'd let me use it too QuQ
