So, I turned 30 and the world didn't end, so that's nice!

I know I've been a bit sparse on the art front. I won't promise to be a hive of activity from now on, but I will absolutely try to make more pieces which of course I'll share (well... the good ones anyway) <3

I'm also going to be in an international sport competition next month, which is ludicrous to me as I'm not sporty?! But I'm representing Ireland all th'same! I... might be shitting it ever so slightly (a lot. I mean a lot)



Questions:
  • How has your summer been? Do you enjoy the heat?
  • What has been your favourite new find of this year so far (tv show, podcast, comic, artist, etc...)
  • Chocolatey desserts or fruity desserts?

Congrats on the 30!! :iconfrankieplz:

I get to be there with you next year! xD

As for your questions; My summer has been pretty stressful, full of overtime at work, and its waaaaay too hot. Dx
Fave new find this year? Probably my new apartment. Its cute and old, a little far away from work, but a better environment for me I feel. C: Well you see the dessert question all depends on if this is fruity pies or danishes? Or if its homemade or store bought? If its pie or cake, fruit. If its dark chocolate anything else then I'll take it! :eager:

I've also been SUPER dead in the art department so no need to apologize! I hope your year only gets better and that you have fun at that sporting event! :la:

Actually I had the BEST dark chocolate raspberry pie this year!!! :love: So we'll go with that answer for sure! And I usually don't like fruit infused into chocolate! I think what helped was it was probably a raspberry liquor they cooked down and mixed it into the cookie crust! :D

Silver?! :wow: That's so great!! Congrats!!!

I tried looking online for a similar recipe, but alas I can find none! T_T Well the shop is called The Pie Chest if you want to try contacting them and beg for the recipe. xD

Good luck for the sport!

My summer was terribly hot, probably too much for me ( I'm more the winter type ).

Favorite new find, damn hard question. I feel like I found something new every day, but I have nothing in mind right now. ^^;

I'm more fruity dessert s. :P

To all of that question, I'm curious about your answer. :)

The sport is done and it went well - I got a silver medal :3

The summer has been incredibly hot here too - very strange, quite uncomfortable - I am more of an autumn type myself

I like both chocolate and fruity, but probably chocolate!

Congrat' for your silver medals! :D

I feel like it was extremely hot everywhere, lot of peoples die here too because of that and conditions in hospitals are really bad. Look like they are not adapt to that kind of temperature.

The heat is trying to murder me and it's been a summer of flatmate surgeries and cat surgeries, but we're hanging in there.  Good to hear you are also <3

Best of luck to ya with the sporting! May I ask what event it is you're participating in? I don't sport myself, but I thoroughly enjoy horseback riding, colorguard and autocross ;)

Summer's been busy as all get out --- family get-togethers, Foo Fighters concert this past week, work on and around the house (as well as working the job that pays me lol). I like the heat better than the cold (my husband and I joke that he's the Siberian tiger while I'm the Bengal, because he all but melts in the heat whereas I spent a great deal of time growing up in the south (Florida for the first 12 years).

Ooooo, I love this question about the new favorite, but sadly I don't think I have an answer as I'm rubbish at keeping track of time frames and when things came out (I'm also well behind the curve on the new trendy things, finding them years after the fact TTwTT ). I'll simplify this to current obsessions, which are The Greatest Showman soundtrack and the TV show Mr. Robot. OH -- and the Themis Files book trilogy (written in an interesting format, contains giant robots, fun times).

I love most desserts (both fruity AND chocolatey) --- Raspberry cheesecake, anything with peanut butter and chocolate as well as chocolate-dipped fruit. I definitely have a sweet-tooth.

What about you, mate? I always enjoy your questions, and getting to hear your own responses.


PS - Told ya 30 wouldn't be too scary <3

Holy crap your sport-enjoyments are so cool! Mine isn't nearly as interesting! It's badminton (doubles)

Wow, your summer sounds really hectic, but in a kinda good way? I like that you're both tigers hahah!

Same, when it comes to keeping track of new finds! If I had to think off the top of my head I'd say "Gravity Falls" as I FINALLY got 'round to watching it, but I'm sure there's been more! I have heard good things about all the ones you've listed :3

I haven't had chocolate dipped fruit in eeeons but that sounds divine right now! I'd usually go for chocolate but I think I want something more refreshing in the summer :3

summer has not been as fun as I want, so much work on my licence has led me to not be able to enjoy my summer the way I want to with my free time but its alright.
Fave new find this summer is MY BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! buzz buzz mother fuckers
hmm the last one is hard because it depends on the kind of dessert but I'll go with chocolatey for now

Uuughh working through this is not a fun time at all :< though, after it, licence times?

Bees are pretty rad, I can't lie! I like the fact I'm not afraid of them anymore! (well, still a wee bit, if they're in my face)

I know, I'm a bastard for my tough choices (psst: I'll let you have both)
