IT's been a while since my last journal / art post, but I'm still around :) Again, I've been very busy on stuff! 

The comic that I was talking about in my April journal is still happening, and I'm working on a lot of concept stuff in between everything else, but it's not goign to be ready for convention season in a few weeks time. It's OK thoguh, cause I'm finally finishing off a Captain America comic I started 3 or 4 years ago after Winter Soldier came out!
“Captain America- The man with the loaded gun�- Cover to my mini comic coming out later this month for $5.00. I’m happy with how it’s turned out with the back light :D
The comic is pretty small at 5 pages long, but it's been a HUGE boost to my self confidence, because a lot of problems I had with doing the comic on Silvyr was stamina, and my body having a fear of making a comic and hurting its self again. Working on a short run comic that is only 5 pages long was the perfect length for me to publish something that is actually current, and I can be proud of! So... it's been really rewarding working on this! I hope it sells well too- I'm really due for an ego boost, even if it's off fanart XD

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of self confidence and ego boosting, I've also cut out sugar from my diet just recently as it was a direct cause of depression for me, and although I'm not cutting sugar out completely since that is near impossible to do, it's made a HUGE difference to how happy I am on average :) Socially, it sucks ass, but my friends are getting use to not offering me sweet things and using other food alternatives cause they know how much of a difference it makes to me- which I REALLY appreciate. I think when I eventually have the resources to move out of home, I'd like to go totally sugar free, and see if that fixes all my issues. In the mean time, I'm trying Self help books. The one I'm currently working through is The JOLT challenge, a book recommended to me by a friend, and it helped her. She also recommended me "The Mindfull compassion book"- a book on not self hating, cause I'm holding myself back a LOT with self hate. Something I only started noticing I had gotten into a habit of after I quit sugar. I was stable mood wise, but I still punched myself down constantly. I think I've been like this my whole life- specially since my health started to crumble around me.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In other news, the last month has had a big turn in my life, where I've been investigating adopting my first cat! After years of wanting one, I got permission to get one, and I'm now waiting for the kitten to be old enough to adopt- probably in early December. They're a week and a few days old right now, and and small and squeaky. I'm hoping that getting a cat will help me with my anxieties, and self confidence, and I know that my mother has mourned our last cat for over 10 years. Adopting a cat was a very important decision for me, and I did a lot of research on breeds that were suitable for my life style, making sure that breed had no genetic health issues caused by forced breeding, and finding a breeder that raised their cats ethically and with love, and found a lovely breeder who is passionate about Ragdolls- a breed I super love, and is happy to give me all the information and support I need with adopting



My kitten will be one of these little babies in the photo (pictured with their mother, Celeste), and I'm very excited to meet the kittens after convention season :) Till then, there's the waiting game, but that's ok. I have a new friend to look forward to <3

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So life has been pretty busy for me! IF you've read this far, please comment on how you've been doing. Perhaps share the projects you're working on right now :) I'd love to see what people are up to <3

A life lived with width, breadth, and above all else, depth is the best kind of life, and you have lived another year of such a life.  Take pride in the undeniable achievement of a worthwhile voyage of discovery through time.  May glory and grandeur not be vicarious experiences, may you plumb the depths and find knowledge, beauty and treasure, may your dreams not elude you and may flashes of inspiration and insight linger to enrich your own days and dreams, and the lives of others.  A very happy birthday to you, and you will not be alone in celebrating the happy miracle of your existence.

May you find this a year of solid accomplishment, of a strong and justified sense of vindication in all that you do.  May you never grow so firm in your convictions that you become immune to reason, may you never grow so flexible that your backbone disappears.  May you face courtesy with courtesy, honesty with honor, and never allow yourself to become soiled by the vileness of a cause or opposition.  Remember what you believe and that for which you are fighting, welcome a repentant brother, be just as implacable as the grimmest foe.  Rejoice in victory, heal from defeat, rise from both to fight with all you have to offer again.  A very happy birthday to you--and may you be ever a Happy Warrior.
