Hi everyone, as always I hope first and foremost that all is well with all of you. I'm sorry it's been so long since I've updated. There's so much to do and so little time it seems. You see, I'm on the last couple weeks before I finally get to go back home.
A lot has happened in a short period of time. Wonderful and heart-breaking things I'd rather not go into, I only wish I get to go home to stay soon. I also have to start being realistic with my goals of what I want to accomplish before I go back home. You see, I have the kind of friends that would write their essays the night before it was due. This reflects in the fact I've been here for almost 3 months, and only now is everyone making plans with me. As such, my remaining days are getting filled up with plans so fast, I can't realistically get much done. But I figure it's important to meet up with those people after 5 years, and say proper good-byes this time. Afterall, I don't know if or when I'll see them again, and I want to make the most of my time.
My realistic goal is that I'll be finishing an artwork as a gift to my Aunt and Uncle for taking me in (this is mandatory on my to-do list before I go), and I'll be finishing coloring ~Ideya-Freak
's commission since it's already half-done. The rest I will try and get the linearts done and arrange as I can, but I would rather plan small and have extra time than overplan and not be able to do everything. So this is my realistic goal before I go back home.
When I do get back home, I'm going to have to work my butt off to catch up on finances, since money that normally goes to bills is going to getting me home instead. As such I'll probably take a load of game assignments and power through the commissions as fast as possible so I can take more (since I'll actually be settled!!), but I'll definitely take a few days to enjoy being home again before I get back to work. Gone from home for 3 months... the least I can do is give myself 3 days with my husband and my cats before returning to a normal schedule.
I know it may sound crazy I've been so busy when you guys haven't seen me much, but trust me, with international paperwork, court issues with my family, and helping my Aunt with MS amongst other things, it's been hard to have a "normal" work day or schedule. I won't even mention how stress can affect things, and I think even an inkling of my stress would be enough to knock most artists out of commission (no pun intended), but I do my best regardless. And I will continue to do my best. There's a good chance you
status commissionees will be hearing from me soon! I apologize for the massive delay with everything, but given the circumstances, I'd hope I won't really have to explain myself..
Hugs to all my lovely friends, watchers, supporters, and commissionees.
