Hey buddy! Wanna arm wrestle? 💪 Just a tired nerd tryinna make do. I'm a logistician and volunteer cook by trade; among my other passions are the humanities and sciences, outdoor sports, gaming, and working with my hands. And, haha, of course sometimes I also love to write and draw!

About Aman5


Aman5 is my personal project: a sci-fantasy taking place in the doomed Aman5 star system. It's composed of three stories, with extensive worldbuilding and more sub plots than I'd like to admit. Aman5 is very special to me. So I hope to get better at actually sharing it!

Undergoing revisions. Older submissions may be outdated.

HEY GUYS, happy new y-- um..... ah..... happy July 2018?! GOSH. /;w;\ It's been a while since I last updated, huh? As most of you know, I'm present and social but not actively posting. I guess I've just gotten comfortable as a passive sideliner. Today I fix this with an update! Sorry in advance if this journal is meandering and long, I have a lot to cover.




All-in-all things have been busy but good! I think we can all agree that 2017 was a little all over the place. For myself personally, I'd call it a "year of doors": doors closing, doors opening. 2018 has been solid so far.



News from the past year:
-Career changes. Without going into detail, Darron and I are bidding adieu to the Army. It's a hard decision and a scary change, but with our current politics one we need. Had a good run! But the freedom's nice. D's gotten into manufacturing and I'm now back in school, studying automotive tech (mechanics) as I decide where to go next. A trucker? Operations? I guess we'll see!



-We bought a house! This area suits us well so we decided to get outselves a little fixer-upper, and while we're still working on it we're enjoying the space and privacy. Lots of plans but for now: the dang roof, haha.

-(First visitor to Casa De Ribbs was Antivulano, who came this March. We loved having you here, Anti, you need to come back! We gon' take you huntin'!!)

-In late 2017 my sister and I got to revisit our hometown. That may not sound like much, but for us it was special! We visited loved ones, saw old sights, got much-needed closure with our mother, and had an insanely fun road trip. It was also realize how much things have changed since leaving California all those years ago.

-Closure helped me commit to therapy. Six months in I'm now realizing how deep-seated childhood abuse can be, but also how freeing it is to have control. It's a hard topic to talk about. But I want to someday be more open about it. 

-I'm still struggling to get back in touch with my creative side. Art is like a steam train, I'm finding: smooth when it runs, but hard as heck to get back in motion. Since 2014 Aman5 has been going through some heavy revisions, and I can't wait to someday share this with you guys. For now, I hope you understand the continued lack of art!

-Hmm what else? Our kitty Little Man's doing good: as poofy and soft as always!
Sorry again for the sheer length of this, haha. I'm still re-learning the internet, so if I ever go dry again feel free to shake me down. Hit me, I can take it......

Thank you guys for your support and patience, even after all these years. Love you all!! <3

Questions of the month:
1. What are your goals for 2018? What's one thing you've done, big or small, that you're proud/happy about?



2. Seems like dA's a ghost town these days. In terms of social media, what sites do you use and where are you most active?

Just wanted to say that all the work you've put into your Aman5 project is absolutely incredible. Desipite a lot of them being old, all of your ref sheets/infographics are very informative and detailed, and it's a level of work I strive for my own worldbuilding. Thanks for sharing your great ideas c:

Aaa thank you so much, that's so kind of you! ;w; :heart: I'm fueled by an intense love for exploration and data vis, though I need to regain my discipline so I can start sharing again. After so many years, where does one even begin? Haha!
