If anyone remembers this journal way back in 2013 , you'll know I'm a Mom (to a wonderful 4 year old daughter, I might add)!  WELL... my husband and I decided to have one more addition to our family and I'm pregnant again.  Actually I've been pregnant for quite a while...  Baby #2 will be coming sometime around the end of March!

As is evident by my gallery, I don't post much nowadays, nor do I have time to.  I'll be even more scarce in the future, but such is life.  I'll still be around to check out peoples cool arts when I can though!

Oh, I have a Tumblr , but I'm honestly not that much more active on that either, haha.

I know people often assume that once you reach adulthood/parenthood that all fun goes out the window, but they really couldn't be more wrong.  I have other obligations that are very important to me, but I still draw and think about the same doofy characters that I've had for years.  Still looove cartoons and being a nerd.  It's something that you never need to give up.  Sort of wish I could've assured younger me of that... and since I'm most likely much older than a majority of DA, I'll assure you guys of that.

In short... I'll draw and upload when I can! :)

ANYHOO~  That's my big news for the year!  I'm very pregnant and uncomfortable... how are you kids doin'?!

So much congratulations to you!
It's totally understandable that the little one would keep you busy enough that your art activity would drop, but having two young ones will definitely keep you on your toes for awhile c:
While it's a li'l sad seeing you go for the time being, I wish you the best on being the best mommy you can be, and look forward to the day when some more art will pop up form ya~!

Also, yeah, I was always afraid watching friends around my age saying stuff like "I can't like this anymore, I have to be an adult now," but I guess I just lucked out on having all my fun animu and mangoes around me even at work. I did notice a few of them turn around and admit to regretting their decisions, but I think it's fine for one to still enjoy the stuff they do and "adult" at the same time. As long as you paying your bills, who cares what you do (unless it harms other people in some way)?

Hopefully, your discomfort will end soon with the arrival of your newest addition <:
Doing pretty good on my end. Just... lots of anime and video games, and sometimes arting when I have the time orz.

Sorry I wrote you novel D:

I worked on children’s online games and websites for 8 years before I had kids, it was my livelihood and I enjoyed it. (I’ve also always wanted 2 kids, so I’m lucky to hit another milestone in my life!) So, since I’m an artist and cartoons and illustrations are what I do for a living, I don’t ever see that part of me ever changing, haha. Plus it just means I get to share this joy with my kiddos.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn’t presume to think that because people are doing ‘adult things’ like having children and getting married that they are giving up on other things. I also think it’s ok for people to move on from some things, as tastes do change! It’s not a bad thing! I mean, I’m not as obsessed with anime anymore, but I will always love cartoons and animation in general... And comics and toys, haha.
But yeah, gotta be happy for folks if their life takes a different direction! People need support when stuff like that happens. :)

Anyway, I’ll be around either way! Just a busy mamma bee~

Thank you, I'm doing quite well recently. 

Things have been turning up since the beginning of this year.  A contingent of Dreamers have even found me and got me to join on Discord, so I hang with them most nights.  Other good things, too, but I won't clutter up your thread with news about me, since this is about you!

Give the husband-o my best regards as always.

I feel like our generation definitely manages to hold on to the things we enjoyed from our youth more than our parents', it's just how we roll.

Congrats on #2! Hope the end is in sight, and all is healthy and happy.

I think it's become more acceptable for adults to indulge in that sort of stuff since it's become pretty mainstream?  I dunno, as a kid I always thought a switch was flipped and you are SUDDENLY ADULT.  Turns out that does not happen, haha.

And thank you!  I am definitely ready to be done being pregnant and meet this kiddo.

That sounds about right. My mom was def hosting cocktail parties and whatnot in her 20s and I'm pretty sure in my 20s I still felt easy cheese was an acceptable part of my diet.

I want to say it'll happen before you know it, but just getting to the weekend feels like eternity, and I'm not even pregnant.
