RIBBONS TRIES TO ART



Casual hobbyist. (งツ)ว
Tons of old/backlogged art to post, 100+ strong, thanks to my posting anxiety. Sharing art doesn't come naturally to me but I'm trying to beat it.
On disabled comments: this is because I've been away, and because it helps me prioritize my time. They'll open back up soon enough!

Ribbons and Bones

27 | she | married | exfj | us army

Hey buddy! Wanna arm wrestle? 💪I'm Ribbs, just a simple nerd livin' out in the cornfields. I'm a logistician and volunteer cook with many, many passions, particularly the humanities, sciences, and anything outdoors. I like to work with my hands and helping others is what I do. I also like to create. If you'd like, you can learn more about me here!
I'M SLOWLY RETURNING FROM A LONG HIATUS. I STILL HAVE IMPORTANT THINGS TO ATTEND TO, SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME!

INTERESTS: culture and history, science, logistics and infrastructure, animals, the military, weightlifting, outdoor sports, writing, worldbuilding, food, scifi and horror, fashion, etc etc

About Aman5


Aman5 is my personal project, a sci-fantasy taking place in the doomed Aman5 star system. It's composed of three linked stories-- Emalia, Fancy Clothes, and North--, with extensive worldbuilding and well over a decade of development. I'm very devoted to this series, but at the end of the day it's just a fun lil' hobby haha.
There is a lot of stuff yet to be shared publicly. For now, here are the basics:
Essentials: Raurana galaxy guide | the planets | more Amanpedias
Aman5 locals: rajayayu | Kuutamians | enki | humans
The story: characters | Emalia | Fancy Clothes | North

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! Sorry in advance if this journal is meandering and long, I have a lot of ground to cover.




All-in-all things have been busy but great! 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 become my "year of asskicking": I may not have many goals this year, but I'm beating 'em like a champ! 



So lessee, updates...
-Career changes. Without going into detail, Darron and I bid adieu to the Army. It's a hard decision and a scary change, but with our current politics it's one we needed. D's gotten into manufacturing and I'm back in school, studying automotive tech (mechanics) as I decide where I want to go next. A trucker? A technician? I guess we'll see!



-We bought a house! It's a little old fixer-upper, perfect for poor first-time buyers like us. Though we're still doing repairs one year later, we love it lots ahaha. I can't wait to have a veggie garden out back and flamingos out front.

-(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. Someday I'll write about it. But I think most of all, it was nice to realize how much I've changed since leaving California those five years ago. It's true: if you don't bloom where you're planted, find new soil.

-Closure meant I could finally begin therapy. Six months in I'm now realizing how deep-seated abuse can be, but also how freeing it is to have control again. It's a hard topic to talk about. I want to someday be more open about it. But so far, so good!

-Still madly in love with this area. Moving to this place in 2016 was one of the best decisions we ever made. I've come to love the cornfields, sweeping plains, and muddy rivers the same way I loved the Sierra Nevada. "Home" is a good feeling.

-I'm still struggling to get back in touch with my creative side. Luckily, I'm starting to understand what's wrong and make steps towards getting that mojo back. Lots to post, lots to re-learn, lots to get out of my head. Aman5's been going through some heavy work and I can't wait to share. For now, I hope y'all can understand. ;w;/

-Who here remembers my injury from late 2016? Well the case is ongoing, but going well, and I was fully recovered by early 2017. It turns out that some legal processes can take years.

-Our kitty Little Man's doing good btw! Poofier and softer than ever!
Sorry again for the sheer length of this, haha. I hope to update more normally, so if I ever go radio silent for three months you have full authorization to kick my ass. HIT ME, I CAN TAKE IT...

Thanks for reading guys, and thanks doubly for your patience and support. 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?

Hey you're so welcome! I'm not familiar with the Honorverse series but the fan maps always blow me away. Your interpretation was great! Hope you have a nice day, too!
