TL;DR I wish you all a wonderful 2015!
I will tell you right away that this will be a long-ish journal.
here, have a drunk Legolas
I hope that it will be a better year than 2014 was in many aspects. I'm not much for making resolutions, but I will list things that I'll try to do on deviantART more in this upcoming year.
- Become more active again. I miss some people from here, and I wish to talk to them more again.
- Draw more.
- Join some contests, feature other deviants, donate prizes (and actually do them) to contests.
- Make a to-do list on my profile page, so I don't lose track of things I have to draw for people.
- Get commissioned. It feels like wishful thinking but meh..
- Clean up my gallery, delete super old drawings.
I feel like there was something else I wanted to add to the list, but I can't remember it anymore.
On another note, I have been tagged by both Minato-Kushina
to write a journal listing stuff that happens to DD suggesters.
I do have a journal
listing all accepted DDs, but there aren't many (espcially since I haven't been active for a while now).
There is one other thing that I can say about suggesting DDs - I rarely to almost never write a description because most of the time I don't really know what to say. i know what I think when I see a piece of art that i want to suggest, but I can't put it into words and make it sound normal. That's frustrating. //facewall
You can skip this part if you wish so, I will be
talking a bit about my personal life.
Things have been so-so in general.
I lost one of my closest friends. The details aren't all that important, but it's sad because I was the only one who was trying to fix our friendship, and after a while I just gave up. I guess, somethimes you don't have any other choice but to give up, especially when the other person becomes toxic for you. We still talk (rarely), but we aren't close anymore.
I also made some new friends, so I guess that's a good thing. I'm not really that fond of people in general, and am very picky when it comes to people I surround myself with.
I'm jobless again, and not to mention that my mom's putting me under pressure because of that. She's only making me crawl more and more into myself, and not wish to go anywhere or do anything. And I hate it more than anything. On a side note, I also realized that I'm currently not ready to be in a serious relationship, and have decided to get my life in order as much as possible before I do something about my love life.
Summer was okay, we had lots of rain, but it wasn't too hot, so I was cool with it. :'D At the end of August, I visited a friend for 10 days. Even though she lives near the sea, we didn't go for a swim. it was sunny most of the time, and warm, but not warm enough for swimming (at least not for me). I also caught a cold there a couple of days before leaving for home, and so I spent a week, after I got home, in bed.
In November, I had two minor surgeries, nothing to panic about. Everything went fine, got my stitches out after two weeks. There are tiny scars visible, but I'm not bothered with them. Actually, I kinda like them. They are a part of me, after all. (:
When it comes to Christmas, I'm not much for it. For me, it lost it's meaning years ago. It's not even a family thing anymore. Everyone just waits for lunch to be over so they can go back to their rooms, and leave me to help out mom with the cleaning. So yeah, that time of the year really sucks for me.
I hope you had a good one, tho.
and many others, for your support, and your kind words, and your friendship (even after I've been away for so long). There aren't word which can describe just how happy and grateful it makes me feel.
