I'm very much inactive here, I do stop by and delete stuff occasionally but activity wise I'm dead.
I know I owe a prize to Pastel-Sailor from WaterMonkey's contest over a year ago, I promise I will have that for you! School is just kicking mine butt right now but hopefully once things slow down I can finally buckle down and have it done.
I don't even know how many followers are even active on here anymore but should anyone want to keep in touch I am on instagram a lot, every day actually.
Just follow the link to my page: www.instagram.com/dreiasimone/
Warning, it's full of terrible cosplay, selfies, CATS, and art.
But kudos to me for sticking it out so long.
This is a short journal and it's really only to ask for your opinion. I will be attending Fanexpo Friday and I have the chance to either cosplay Kagome or Coronation Anna. With Anna though I don't have the wig yet, I have enough hair as is but it's quite dark compared to Anna's strawberry blonde, so I could go as more of a dark haired Anna but... it won't be accurate but the dress is just so pretty. Kagome I have everything, my hair is dark enough and I have her bow (its bid and I'll have to lug it around).
So, in your opinion which of the two should I go as?
So, let's start with the most basic of updates. I have applied to college once again, this time for Veterinary Technician, I have taken the HOAE which will determine if I get in or not as it is a competitive program. I have yet to get any word from them so fingers crossed. I had considered applying for Illustration but I didn't have the portfolio ready because work had be in almost every afternoon the week I was to work on it... so, thanks procrastination!
A few months ago, November 2015 to be exact my cat had her first seizure, it lasted 1-2 minutes and she came out of it fine, no side effects and she was back to being her crazy self and they had an interval of about 6 weeks each. That is, until this past Monday.
My mom and I got home from work at around 1:15pm, we were making lunch and around 1:30 I start to hear thumping, a quick look to the back and I see Kaya having a seizure. I didn't panic but when she started coming out of it I moved her to the bathroom to clean her up. I wish it had been just the one but a second came on, I remained as calm as possible and hoped that it'd be the last.
It wasn't, she went on to have another 3 at home. I contacted my boss and he said to keep calm but noticing my cat have 5 seizures in a row I couldn't really be calm. This was my cat! We got her to the clinic and she started on her 6th one.
We finally got valium in her and she immediately calmed, albeit she remained rather doped up for a good time. I was just so distraught. I was glad that she wasn't having seizures anymore, more then glad to see she was just remaining calm after such an ordeal. We got the catheter in her and my boss came back to talk to me. He was honest, he thought that the prognosis wasn't good and I immediately could feel the tears. I broke down, this is my 1 year old cat! I don't want to lose her. We took her to the 24 hour clinic so she'd be observed and tested and in my mind I knew this was going to cost already around $1000.
We have worked with the doctor in charge so he was kind and gave me some discounts but still by the end of everything it was just short the $1000 mark. Kay stayed the night for observation and tests. I felt calmer going home knowing she was in good hands and that the doctor gave me that inkling of hope that while seizures are probably not curable they can be treated and prolonged.
It was such a long day but she came home Tuesday on medication for the rest of her life. I'm also very glad that I got her insurance, both my cats have it. If I hadn't I wouldn't be able to afford the treatment, now all that comes out of my pocket is $200.
I see these things almost everyday where clients don't have insurance, veterinary bills are expensive, we're accused of not caring for the animals but it isn't the case. We don't have OHIP for pets, veterinary clinics are a business and we love your pets! But if we can't sustain the practice how are we suppose to help you!
I'm glad for the doctors who helped my Kaya and glad that I had the money, and even if I didn't I would have found a way to het the money because she's my baby.
I'm just glad that she's fine, a little tired today and angry but overall good.
Because of some money constraints I am selling my Sailor Moon 1992 Star Locket, made in China version. I don't have the box but it still plays well. There are some scuffs and scratches as seen in the pictures below. If interested either comment here or note me.
The asking price is $250 USD not including shipping. Considering it's size I think the prize for shipping won't be more then $30 USD.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!
SO Today at work I was doing what I do as appointments kept coming in an out. One kitty and her owner were at the front talking to the receptionist as I came out of the room. I overhear them talking and how the owner will will be voicing for Assassins Creed game.
I'm not big of a gamer but found it interesting that she was a voice actress. After notifying the doctor of his patients in the room I head to the front desk where they are still talking.
The owner suddenly looks over at me and says. “I voiced Luna on Sailor Moon.”
Can I tell you I had a moment, this large grin spread across my face. I couldn’t believe that a piece of my childhood stood right in front of me. And like an idiot I just blurt out “You were my childhood!!"
She laughed and responded, "I was a lot of people's childhoods."
And of course I'm so excited and happy to meet her that I end up saying how they revived the show again but she just grins and shakes it off saying, "yeah but people prefer my sailor moon more."
I literally geeked out in front of her! She was a very pleasant woman and I got a look back into my long gone childhood.
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DA for about 9 years now. 10 in January coming.
2. What does your username mean?
Well, Tsuki means moon. It's been my username since I've started here on DA. I was very fascinated (and still am) by the moon.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Anxious, sarcastic, hopefully nice?
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Realism, I would love to draw my family and friends.
8. What was your first favourite?
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Probably Naruto related but I love seeing the original artwork that others create that I never can.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Hmm, I never really thought about it but I love danzzila's artwork. annria2002, EmiAne, mongrelmarie, and zeiva
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Why are these questions so hard?! There are a few that I'd like to know but I guess I'd go with someone I befriended. Probably puomi or Tsukiko-mei.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well since starting on DA I have met many amazing people. At some points in my life I had hit some low and I realized from my network of online friends that I wasn't alone even if I thought I was. There was always someone to talk to and laugh with, even if the conversations were nonsensical. This community reminded me that friendships aren't strictly based on those you went to school with or played outside in the park with, that there is a possibility to create more bonds through the online communities. You just have to be careful
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencil and paper, photoshop and tablet.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room. But I can get inspired with anything really.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I forget a lot of things that have happened but maybe it was when I was introduced to DeviantArt or the world of roleplaying (I was really bad back then) but I was introduced to it by PuppyToast and IcHi-ChAn4EvA. I thank them deeply for it and apologize for my very Mary-Sue character! I promise I've updated her and she no longer has all the powers you can imagine!
I was wondering if anyone knew someone selling their limited edition Anna doll? I've been on eBay but it's crazy expensive and I'm not a rich woman.
I should think about cleaning out my DA gallery, it's pretty cluttered and full of *ahem* untalented artwork of mine. I would like to believe that I have improved but going through my gallery it feels like I hit a peak of talent and slowly have been declining again lol
I am at a crossroads of my destiny!
So, I think I may just go ahead and do a Tumblr sketch blog even though it seemed there was one person not interested
If interested stay tuned for my random ass sketch blog link to come in the near future.
EDIT: Here is the link to the active Sketch Blog on Tumble, there currently is nothing on it but as I go about my day I'll dump what i draw on paper. tsukisketches.tumblr.com
