I was able to register an account here. I'm looking forward to getting to know all y'all and start reading your comics. I really appreciate that this site, and this forum, is here.

I got a confirmation that I'm getting a cat!!!! And I'm almost crying from happiness.

Mona Mau(Meow) is an extremely adorable rescue cat. I met her for the first time yesterday after phone interview with the animal protection service and the foster home she's living in atm. She was a bit suspicious at first about the two strangers ( went with a friend) coming to meet her but she also relaxed quite fast. Started with hiding but in the end she was okay with being held and petted. And Mona was practically liquid when her foster owner held her. She’s also fine with being handled and doesn’t fuss over being taken to vet or even when she needed a bath.

Considering Mona has been at the foster home only for little less than 2 months after being caught outside it’s pretty remarkable how trusting she is. And when she's used to a person she turns into a cuddle monster. :D She'll arrive little after new years.

Pics under spoilers of this beautiful lady.

Ahhh such a pretty kitty!

Not something that happened today, but I actually had some money on me during Black Friday, and Curry's Fancy-ass Art Supplies was having a big sale. The nice brush pens that are usually $6.20 were all $3 plus a 15% discount on top of that. I got 19 new markers for about $50. **happy dance**

OMG Congratulations!!! *u* (I don´t feel envy at all, nooooo) That´s such a lovely kitten, it´s a calico, isn´t it? So beautiful!
I wish I had a kitty someday T___T

At the moment I´m big sis of two dogs, and I´m happy because one of them got a complicated surgery on hind leg and is feeling much better right now. Starts walking normally and so^^

Best wishes on fluffy-puffy-meow <3

a bit of a story
useually i wait till Christmas to get all my xmas gift money together. but there was this new maleficent dragon pop that glows and was on sale. there was an older version without glowing flames thats now vaulted and selling for around $200. so this new one was a chance for everyone to get it in a way (newer ones cooler too).

with the sale + fear of selling out before xmas day + scalpers already jumping the pops price to $80 over its normal $30 on other sites. i asked my family if they could get it for me. i wasint sure we'd be able to and didint push it after the first asking.

last night the sale had only 5 hours left. it looked like i was going to fully wait it out till xmas for a higher price, if it was even still in stock by then. but luckily my mom came to ask what i wanted and was going to get me a gift card or go shopping today after cashing her check in the morning. i told her about the pop and its sale, but without the check cashed we couldn't buy it till morning when it was over.
however she remembered that she may have some money on a card. we were able to order it with 2 hours of sale left. =] (aaaaaand then the site decided to extend the sale for a few more days. ;u;)

the pop in question.

I'm back in Seattle for winter break, and I've been hanging out with an old friend group of mine; people who I knew in high school but didn't become friends with until afterwards. We've gotten so much closer this past year, despite me hardly being around Seattle this year at all. Every time I'm in town, we have a big party and drink and talk and laugh deep into the night.
Last Saturday was one of those nights! Wine and food piled up high on the table, spilling secrets and starting up spontaneous little games, perfectly wrapped gifts quickly torn open and shared with everyone. The candle's scent of smoked clove and tobacco filling the room, mixing with the mulled wine and the Tuscan bean stew in the air... a mismatched hodgepodge of music pumping out of the big speakers, my favorite hits of 2019, Balkan beats mixed with bubblegum tropical pop. 7 straight hours of partying, and immediately passing out in bed afterwards to a satisfied and dreamless sleep, and quite the stomachache in the morning.

Last night we met up again and just happily sat with each other as one of us played a video game and another one of us worked on a bead project and another shopped for rugs online and I drew comics and we cooked two pizzas and demolished them, and someone brought over a massive drum of kettle corn in three flavors, and someone else bought a variety pack of White Claw, which none of us like but for some reason keep acquiring and drinking.

I've been to a lot of parties where I've felt alone in a crowd, but at these Seattle gatherings I feel incredibly present, seen, and loved, and it's because of the sort of people I've surrounded myself with here. As I biked home late last night past all the sleeping townhouses, cooling off under the stars, I realized that I had finally found a feeling I'd been searching for for so long: the feeling of truly being able to drop by someone's house at any time for no reason other than to just spend time with them. I said to myself: Remember this moment. Remember this feeling. Put it in a jar in your mind so you can relive it.

It's a bittersweet feeling because in January I'll be going back to Texas again, and I won't see my Seattle friends for another long stretch. I'm still trying to make friends in Texas that I have these sorts of feelings about. I'm not sure that I can. There's a special bond that forms when you've known someone since high school. We've watched each other grow up. We've watched each other blossom! Just a few years ago, some of us were in some really dark wells, and we've watched each other make it out alive.

Tonight we're seeing each other again to go to a movie. I can't wait to see everyone again. I love these people.

I took a portfolio of a few drawings and a thumbdrive of what I do with them in GIMP to a meeting about possibly going after a career in graphic design, and got praise for my work.

Went to a Lunch and Learn and Pella gave us a run down on window solutions.

They also paid for lunch, coffee, and brought cupcakes. :D

I got one hour of drawing done. Sounds small, but it was a genuine victory.

I managed to do a simple draft of two pages which is a lot for me

I sketched out and inked my newest page! I'm so glad I managed to do that in a day AND not hate it! xD
Now all that's left is to colour and shade it (which is the lengthier process).

I just am so excited, I wanted to share that. And I'm going to get Shinichiro Watanabe's autograph!
