I have the urge to make some Spirit SotC MV's again... still keeping track of great songs to use for them
I used to save a copy of my messages here daily so I could look back on them in the future. Looking back at conversations from over a decade ago now, makes me highly upset about the great friendships I let just wither away in time. There are serious heartfelt apologies I owe people, but I might never be able to find them to give them such. I guess that's life, but it doesn't stop me from being depressed about it.
The next pony group-related meetup at the house is April 20-22. Even as a lot of people that used to come are now busy with adult life or have lost interest, I really do hope there is a good turnout. Going to invite some folks from nearby states, probably; plenty of room to spread out and hang out all weekend here.
Ehh... Should've Stayed In Bed Today
Shading is satisfactory... but as always, hard to make a traditional piece look good when uploaded :c

Have not drawn Helicity in eons. Was fun shading and male face practice I suppose.

Also first upload in months, aaaaaaaa

Time goes by really fast by age 27. It's actually kind of hard to remember if certain events happened in 2015, 2016, or 2017 since the years speed by and blur together in a quagmire of stress, excitement, worry, fear, joy, and whatever else emotions can be dragged into the fray. Not that the speed is a bad thing; I am excited to see 2017 end, as parts of the year were an absolute dumpster fire.

That being said, I got to see so many amazing places in 2017. Gleamy and I were on a cruise to Cozumel and Chacchoben/Costa Maya with Seabronies in January - my first cruise and first time out of the country. I attended BABScon in San Francisco in April, for the third time. I was at Everfree Northwest in Seattle for the second time in May (a trip I'm still desperately trying to erase from my mind, unfortunately) and Bronycon in Baltimore in August for my 5th time. Bronycon was a great experience this year; helping karzii and her fiance vend was a lot of fun. Shortly thereafter, I went to Tellico Plains, TN, with a friend to watch the total eclipse, which was jaw-dropping. A few days later, I traveled to Vancouver, BC with DeadParrot22 for the final BronyCAN. First time in Canada - that was also a fun trip. In October I volunteered on security staff at the final Nightmare Nights in Dallas, and a couple weeks later traveled to Los Angeles for the final EQLA. Six pony cons and a pony group on a cruise; 2017 is the pinnacle of my travels thus far and I really can't afford to do all this again anytime soon.

Sadly, even those wonderful events were dramatically overshadowed by family, relationship, and personal issues, the likes of which I won't divulge of course, and I am trying to maintain a positive attitude going into 2018. I know the designation of a new year is arbitrary in the cosmic sense, and January 1st doesn't automatically generate a clean slate, but sometimes it's better to pretend it does; and it is a good way to distance myself from the ills of 2017. I am also rather depressed about the natural progression of a show-based fandom, which by the rapidly falling off numbers of conventions (not to mention the future rumors) makes quite clear is far past its peak. I'll always be involved to some extent, for sure, but it isn't going to be the vibrant, new, and active community it was from 2011-2015 or so.

I don't make resolutions, but there are lots of relevant things I would like to do in 2018. Actually doing them is a different story entirely. I want to TRY to stick around dA more often, while the community is still around. I want to pick up on art again - the decline of the fandom notwithstanding. Maybe even start landscape painting. I want to catch up with friends, and the works of said friends, as I've missed probably five years' worth of art on here. I want to travel some, catching up with real life friends I see only at said events, but be wiser financially and not get overloaded. I also want to pick up on other random hobbies, to perhaps fill some free time, and maybe make more friends (or a little money!) in the meantime. I want to try to plan for the future and try to be more responsible, but I also don't want to hold back and miss chances that would pass me by.

All in all, I hope your 2018 is an excellent one, and I hope to talk to each of you at some point and catch up! Honestly, it'd be great if anyone with Discord could add me at Equus#4691 as I'm logged in constantly, and you can even scream at me if I go absent from this site again immediately. :lol:

tl;dr, HAPPY NEW YEAR Y'ALL
