So several things to mention this journal but overall just another update!
First things first, I returned from an adventure with StupidShepherd
down at Disney and we had a blast! Too much stuff happened to go into detail, but long story short...
I got awful food poisoning the very night we arrived (from my favorite restaurant T-REX no less) due to some kinda rotten onion rings. I felt the nausea creep in and it was the worst feeling ever. I still got to enjoy the restaurant before that set in, though, so it wasn't a waste and got to see a bunch of Downtown Disney beforehand. That night wasn't so swift, however, and we ended up having to postpone the initial park trip by a day to recover. In its place we visited all the tacky gift shops around the hotel and that in itself was an adventure! I was completely rid of the feeling by that day's end, but then Pyro retardedly whacked herself in the head and probably got a concussion but you know. You win some you lose some amirite? *brik'd*
It was horrendously hot during the trip, even for me who's used to Florida heat. Thank Creator is rained the second park night and the entire day the third while we were at Magic Kingdom which not only cooled the place off but also drove away the evil moms with stroller-weapons! I had a poncho and a hat so I was all good and Pyro is just okay being soaked so it worked out! I honestly think rainy days at Disney are extremely more fun than dry days. That's funny to say but it's true!
We ate at some awesome places, saw some awesome things, I witnessed some stuff I hadn't seen before in my trips there, and overall it was a great trip! We had tons of laughs and plenty of documentation through a stupid plastic dragon called Mr. Chips. He likes to give kisses and really loves yogurt.
All things considered it was successful. It honestly felt even more rewarding because we had been planning said trip for around 2 years now jokingly, and seriously began to save up for it about a year or so ago. We didn't think we were going to legitimately meet our goal but we did and just in time! It felt so great to save up for something and work hard on our own without just asking for handouts or relying on parents to fund things. I didn't even speak of this trip for the past years solely because we didn't think we would achieve such a feat but we did. Thanks go out to everyone who has commissioned either of us in the time span! It was nice to spend some funds on ourselves for a change instead of using it all for school (which some still is going to). It made it all worthwhile!
As far as what is to come, I cover most of it in previous journals but I am going to aim to work more on TS and produce a few reference sheets. I'd like to get a start on my Ambivian sheet too, but we'll see. I also have to start work on my second freelance novel, which is going to be a challenge as it needs a lot of reworking itself before I can touch illustrating it. I probably won't be able to finish it this summer as planned with how much needs to go into it, but I'm hoping it doesn't eat up all my time. We will see.
In the mean time, I'm going to finish up some school assignments and try to get those up in the next couple weeks as I'm very happy with them! Additionally if I discussed having a trade or commission with you, I will be noting you sometime in the next couple days for details on that too! I also chose the individual I plan on doing the pinup request for (I wanted to pick several people but I simply don't have the time. LE SIIIIGH) I'm excited to get back to some serious arting again outside of school and comicing! Let's take it step by step and see where it goes~
Hope everyone's summers are going well so far! TELL ME ABOUT YOUR LIVES!
