I love to dress in layers not just for the fashion. Unless the weather gets hot, I barely show off my skin (no pun intended).
Enjoyed watching Let's Plays on Youtube and streams on Twitch, more entertainment than basic Cable. I sometimes play along which is more fun.
My dream is to have a bedroom/art studio, so whenever I wake up I begin creating immediately.
I'm not much of a talker, but rather a listener which I am more loved that way.
I doodled every single day; a major habit of mine.
A big sucker for coffee, whether a regular cup of Joe or a fancy Starbuck brand. Either way, it's coffee.
Questioning whether I am really an introvert or an amibvert. I do know for sure I'm not really an extrovert.
I can easily get lost in an art supplies and books stores. It's like a candy store for certain people.
I started on sewing simply because I want to tend to my old clothes and make my own stuff.

*hence noting that this is the final what could be the most shortest update ever this year*
I come to learn that everyone in the entire world celebrates certain holidays that are not limited to Christmas. I of course celebrate Christmas not because of Catholic religions but also to be surrounded by family and close friends, exchanging gifts and watching classic Christmas movies. There're holidays like Hanukkah and Kwanzaa and others more. They may be different from Christmas, however they all shared a similar meaning of getting together and celebrate with gifts, food, festivities or whatever tradition your family and friends do. If there is one certain holiday that I am sure we can agree on, that we all celebrate together regardless of religion and race and so on, is the New Year's.
This holiday, New Year's, is not heavily limited to breaking out of the champagne if you are of legal age, staying up until midnight, and coming up with resolutions for the new year coming, etc. But this also marks for everyone who had survived through the hardships and mishaps that occurred in 2017, and believe me, I had encountered those too often. Few of them to name: Losing two grandmothers in two months, dealing with my mom's roommate for the final time, political issues that are constantly at times unbearable and unhealthy for me, and a car accident that rendered me fearful until I got the courage to start up driving again for Spring. Those things listed indicated me of the bad times that had happened that are now in the past, and I perhaps I've grown stronger and wiser to them? Whatever the case, those bad things are now behind me. While there's a bad in anything, there's also a good that makes up for it. I am blessed to still have my mom and family members to talk and greet to (and now more so with my nephew Jacob in the picture), found a new love with Stefan thanks to Marklund and the Target outing where I asked him out, kept on sewing and coming up with projects like Pixel Patchworks and I'm slowly getting into drawing again, got a new job as a dietary aide and getting to know of the residents of Pine View, and the miracles of chiropractic care ensured me that what seems feels like a fainting spell is actually telling me to take a Number 2.
I read over the past entries this morning, from January to November of 2017, and I realized that "Damn, I've been through the lot." Thankfully it was not anything devastating or catastrophic I couldn't handled, but those events that had transpired shook me enough to rethink about life and death and how to continue to move on with the memories you still hold within you. Another realization I've obtained that after a certain sorrow event happened, there'll always be salvation after going through it with hope. For instance, Grandma Joanne passed away in sleep, but then still the Hampe family gets together on holidays and meeting new ones altogether. My mom's roommate finally got the boot, but then presented an opportunity to forgive him for the 10 years he had caused me grief and annoyance. Grandma Caroline passed away which had left me not only jobless but also grandma-less in terms of blood relation, but then having another job which was similar to hers in the past as a dietary aide was given to me. So, basically, as long you can find a sliver lining in everything that has happened to you and while in the aftermath, then that's all the reassurance I need to keep myself sane, calm, and determined to make this next year better.
Now for the New Year's Resolutions! … I'll keep it simple this time. I was able to complete 75% of my Resolutions in 2017. The only things I wasn't able to do and complete was the 300 Drawing Prompts book and Going to a Con and Cosplay. But that's okay, because perhaps 2018 will be the year to do so if the fates allow. Maybe.
