So this morning started like any other, up to a point. I was in bed, trying to get in as much sleep as I could before I'd inevitably have to get my ass out, anyway. Then the doorbell rang. Reluctantly, I got up and put on a bathrobe to be at least a little presentable. I knew who was waiting for me on the other side of the door before I even went to open it. At that kind of time, it could be only one person: the deliveryman. He had a package for me that I was naturally eager to see the contents of. My half-awake mind was pondering the possible contents. Could it be the tablet I ordered a few days ago? Or perhaps it's the cooling fan that my dad ordered for me even further back? With the size of the package, either one was viable, but when I finally beheld its contents, it was what I had been anticipating for the longest time.

A Wacom Cintiq 13HD drawing tablet.

I couldn't have been more eager to try it out, and yet I savored the unboxing, taking out each and every asset and letting the fact that I was now the owner of a screen display tablet sink in. When I had it hooked up, though, the troubles began. First SAI wouldn't recognize pen pressure, then the cursor would appear offset from where I put down the pen, despite calibration. Some online troubleshooting and several reinstallations of the driver later, everything worked well enough. And I suppose that, tablet-wise, there's no more higher ground for me to reach. Now it's all about improving my artistic skill.

Will the new tablet mean an increase in output? I can't give a definite answer, but let's hope it does. I sure could use the practice, at any rate.

Oh, you lucky bastard.  I so want that tablet, but I'm poor right now.  XD  

I really can't wait for the content you'll be cranking out.

They say that the pen is mightier than the sword...
And the Wacom is an epic-tier pen.

But as with anything, it's the skill of the user that counts most - I look forward to seeing what you can do with it ;3
